MyPhone Vortex priced at Php12,388

MyPhone has announced the pricing for its Vortex, and it is a fair bit higher than I expected at Php12,388. This makes it the second most expensive locally branded phone, just behind the O+ 8.15 and the Starmobile Diamond V7. What really surprises me is that it costs more than the 5.7-inch MyPhone Agua Iceberg.

Still it has a Sony Sensor and has been featured on GSMArena... that must count for something. Also it is being offered on six months zero interest.

Pricing abroad is US$295, so the local pricing is actually lower than the international price. Looks like a really nice phone, but is it big. It is 8 mm taller and 4 mm wider than a Galaxy S4. It is actually taller and wider than the Lenovo P780 with the massive 4000 mAh battery.


  1. The conclusion from gsmarena says it all.

    A919i Duo is the rebranded Canvas HD, and they're selling it these days for 8k at SM North. That's a pretty big price gap for this upcoming Vertex and the larger Iceberg at 12k.

    1. I would agree. When it comes to value for money, the MyPhone A919i and OHD 2.0 are the two that really stand out.
