Ok, ok, I have been receiving this question either thru the comments page or thru YM messages, so I decided to create this post..
My comparison is based on the features that I had tried so far. Will update this post as soon as I encounter something that is worth posting here lol.
Myphone Q21 costs around Php4700.00 while Myphone Q22 costs Php 3540.00.
In my opinion, the manufacturer spent more on Q21′s physical construction, mostly on the materials used, thus the price difference. Well, that’s just my observation and opinion. Q21 feels solid, looks elegant (I only have the black one, so I can only speak for that particular unit). On the other hand, Q22 looks cheap at first glance,but it is still ok for me. it feels like a creaky plastic, plus I hate the Philippines map at the back cover (duh!)
Features and Menu
Features are almost the same. The arrangement of Icons in the main menu is different on both phones. There are extra icons in the Q22 main menu. These are mainly links to several sites like Yahoo, facebook, twiter, friendster among others, which I find really annoying.
Q21 Menu displays basic icons which you usually access, which I prefer.
No Magic voice is installed in Q22, while it is found at Q21′s general call settings. What is Magic Voice? The very basic and simple way to describe it is, even when you are a girl, your caller can hear a man’s voice if magic voice is activated (depends on setting). I find this useful when I received some ‘makulit’ callers lol.
Myphone Q22 earphones is really improved.
Both deliver quality sound when the built in speaker is activated
Keypad and texting
Texting using Q21 is really hassle free. Characters are displayed on the screen as you type them, no delays. This is also true with Q22.
What I noticed though in Q22′s keypad, there are some awkward keys (i don’t know how to describe this lol). This is mostly on the function keys. See marked areas in the picture below. Though, when you get used to it, it will not be your concern anymore.
‘Period’ (.) has its own key in Q22, unlike in Q21 that you need to press Alt M, or select in the list of symbols.
Just recently I noticed this, Myphone Q22 keypad is softer than Q21, thus giving me a more comfortable feel while texting.
If you are on a very tight budget and you want a qwerty phone, with basic functionality, and you don’t mind not having the magic voice, well Myphone Q22 is the one to buy. If you find the physical a bit cheap, you can always opt to dress it up with cellphone skin. I had seen the white one, and its quite elegant, you can choose to get this instead.
Otherwise, go for Myphone Q21. I prefer to have this personally
But, with some improvements in Q22, I believe the next Qwerty phone from Myphone would be next to perfect! waaaaa I hope they’ll give me one!!!! lol! (wishful thinking)
