MyPhone My82 DTV Review

I previously checked the My86 DTV and now I had a chance to check and put up some observations of another budget DTV smartphone from MyPhone, here is my review of MyPhone My82 DTV.

The device has 5 inch FWVGA display, Android 5.1 Lollipop, 5 inch display, 5 MP main cam with flash, 2 MP secondary cam, 512 MB RAM, 4 GB ROM, dual SIM, 3G capable and 2,000 mAh battery


The box also includes a 700 mA charger, earphones, user manual, antenna for DTV which you need to put in the audio jack and warranty paper. By the way, the phone had a more plasticky removable back cover. For this review, I got the black variant plus a screen protector was already there at the device but it was not that good. 


The device has custom Android 5.1 Lollipop as evident in the icons. Good thing, there is still an app drawer to organize the apps. Nothing to complain for a budget phone like this.



Calls, texts, Bluetooth, WiFi and mobile date were no problems for me in the number of days that  used this phone but as you know it for a handset with 512 MB RAM, there is limitation for me in terms of multi tasking and avoid those apps that require heavy hardware resources so no chance for me for a gaming review of this. Even a light game like Gemjump is not properly working on this one. The screen touch display problem that I previously experienced on the My86 DTV (before the OTA update) was not there on the phone.


As expected, the basic sensors were visible on this device as you can see it below. What powers inside is the Speadtrum SC7731 quad-core processor. In addition, this device does not support USB OTG



Apart from My86 DTV, My82 DTV only supports one seg DTV signal which means you will miss those free-to-air channels which only service full seg DTV signal like Aksyon TV, some channels from BEAM and Sports and Action. No surprise that you will be getting less channels for a thousand less. Good thing, the recorded DTV file is currently at .ts extension file at 320 x 240 resolution which you might gonna see some freeware converters online to more popular video formats. The signal quality is a bit less as normal. The phone has 2 point multi touch.



In my video battery rundown test, it scored at a good 8 hours and 15 minutes. For a normal usage, I managed to get 17 hours with 4 hours of screen time including watching DTV for an hour, calls, texts and social media via  mobile browser. Charging time took at around 2 1/2 hours.

The camera output only works for social media purposes as never attempt to shoot it on low light. The front camera does not have wide angle lens

Not a lot of less than Php 2,000 peso smartphones with DTV and with 5 inch display on the market today but MyPhone still managed to put those pieces into one product. As the SRP says at Php 1,999, you will really gonna get those entry-level expectations and output. At least, they skipped that soon-to-be-obsolete analog TV to DTV which is a plus.  I will gonna score 3.75 out of 5
