There goes the MyPhone Iceberg, a new quad-core phablet aiming for those who can spend more than 10K. Specs-wise, the Iceberg is impressive: you have a large, clear and scratch-resistant screen, a powerful quad-core processor paired with a sufficient 1GB RAM, a nice 12MP camera which should take good snapshots, as well as a 5MP front camera that would do great on video chats.

Also, it runs on the latest version of Android, 4.2.1 Jellybean. You also have USB OTG support which means you can use a USB broadband or a flash disk. What's just not good is the 2,600 mAh battery which will only suffice a day of you're a moderate user. But overall, Iceberg is one heck of a phone.

MyPhone also tweaked it with features such as Clever Motion and TARA, an Anti-Theft application technology.

You can get this phone through cash (PHP12,000) or by installment (at P499.50/month for 24 months) which you can pay at BPI, Citibank, Metrobank, and RCBC.
