O+ 8.15 - O+ enters the 5-inch HD fray

O+ has is launching its own 5-inch smartphone with a HD display, the O+ 8.15.

Quick specs:
  • Dual SIM
  • Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • 5-inch IPS HD display (720 x 1280)
  • 8 GB internal storage, expandable via a microSD card slot
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 1.2 GHz quad core Mediatek processor
  • PowerVR SGX544MP graphics 
  • 8 MP primary camera, autofocus with flash
  • 1.9 MP front camera
  • HSPA+
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • A-GPS
  • 2000 mAh battery
The specifications are nearly identical to MyPhone's newly released A919i Duo. There are two substantial differences. The O+ 8.15 comes with a newer version of Android Jelly Bean, coming with Android 4.2 instead of 4.1 found on the MyPhone A919i. Given that lower end phones do not get software updates frequently, a newer version of the operating system is a big deal. The O+ 8.15 also has a thinner case, being a slim 8.4 mm, while the MyPhone has a case about 10.7 mm thick. 

The O+ 8.15 is priced at Php12,990. That is Ph3,400 more than the MyPhone A919i duo. Adding to the value of the O+ 8.15 is its additional internal memory, which is 8 GB, which gives you roughly three times the internal storage of the MyPhone A919i Duo. It also ships with a 8 GB SD card, both of which combine to make the price difference smaller than it seems.

On its launch day on May 11, 2013, the first 100 buyers at the O+ concept store in SM North EDSA will be able to buy the phone at a discounted price of Php9,990.


  1. Typo:

    The *My Phone* 8.15 is priced at Php12,990.

  2. The O+ 8.15 has 8GB internal storage.

    1. Sorry, I though that was only because of the bundled MicroSD card. Verified and its actually 8 + 8 GB. Thanks.
