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.
