The MP ICEBERG costs for as low as Php499.50 per month on a major credit card, or which translates to a total of Php11,988 on cash.
MyPhone Iceberg gets the name due to its aluminum body casing that gives you the cold-metallic feel, plus it appears like icy silver. It also makes it lightweight, though tougher at the same time, even when exposed to extreme temperatures.
Besides getting off the plastic casing, MyPhone Iceberg’s also stuffed with a sturdy hardware with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 1GB RAM and a 16GB user memory. They’ve managed to include a better camera with a 12MP on the back with BSI and a 5MP camera facing front, aside from being able to record a 1080p video.
