Cherry Mobile Flare: Cheapest Quality Android Phone in PH

Apr 1, 2013

Most of the Android phones offered to us by major brands, such as Samsung, LG and others, cost too much for the average Filipino. The product I am going to post today was the hit phone in the last quarter of 2012 and is still the star of the Philippine Android phone for 2013. I am talking about the Cherry Mobile Flare.

If a 5-inch android smartphone is too big for you, you might want to look at the Cherry Mobile Flare. It has a 4-inch WVGA (800 x 480) IPS display, powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. It also packs a 5 megapixel camera and a VGA front-facing camera. It includes 512MB RAM, 4GB of internal storage (up to 32GB for microSD card), WiFi and operates on an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. But the Flare packs a smaller battery at 1600mAh.

Full specifications of the Cherry Mobile Flare:

Qualcomm MSM8225 Snapdragon S4 1.2GHz dual-core processor
Adreno 203 GPU
4.0″ IPS capacitive touch panel (800 x 480)
512MB RAM
4GB internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
HSPA+ 21Mbps
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, WiFi hotspot
Bluetooth 2.1
GPS w/ aGPS support
Dual-SIM, Dual-Standby
5-megapixel rear camera with flash
VGA front-facing camera
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
1600mAh battery

Pros:
Cheapest Quality Android Phone in the PH Market
Comparable Speeds to the high-end Android phones

Cons:
Battery easily drains (But most android phones do not last more than a day.)

Price: Php 3,999
in Cagayan de Oro: Php 4,200 (Graphics All-in-Store)

Rating:4.5/5

I highly recommend this product to those who have little budget to spare but wants to own an Android phone. Just bring your charger with you all the time cause it might drain in the middle of the day. I just do not know why its price in Cagayan de Oro is at Php 4,200.

  2. The back of my flare get so hot when i surf the net?!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. In my opinion, that is normal. This happens especially if you are using 3G network. However, if you are using Wi-Fi the phone does not get too hot. I think it has to do something with the phone receiving and sending data over 3G network.

      Delete
    2. I am in the semiconductor/electronics company. Heat is normal as long as it was designed to handle. It will be a design flaw if the unit dies down related to heat. Phone should last very long (>5 years minimum).

    7. Ah...okay ang price. Ano ang battery size nyan @anon?

      Delete
    8. YES INDEED. Samsung galaxy s3's battery na need lang e modify yung terminal ata tawag dun at tanggalin ung naka wrap na paper para ma fit sa back case. Pero ang pinaka fit na compatible battery is ung sa LG Optimus Black (BL-44JN), but still prefer ung s3 kasi 2100mAh while bl-44jn's default battery capacity nasa 1500mAh or 1600mAh lang ata un tas ung extend niya is 1800mAh pero ung nga lang pahirapan sa bl-44jn.

    1. These problems were years ago pa po. :) Ngayon, Cherry Mobile android phones are comparable to major brands like Samsung, Sony, etc. Hindi na lumulobo ang battery nila. Choose carefully na lang po kung ano sa mga release ng CM ang bibilhin mo. :)

    2. Nope. Hindi madaling masira ang cherry mobile. I bought my cutie on march last year pa. Ilang beses nalaglag pero ok pa rin. At take note.. nalaglag ng isang beses sa batyang me tubig pero buhay pa rin. :)

    1. Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

      I really recommend the Cherry Mobile Flare. But most of the recent android phones really suffer from battery drain, not only Cherry Mobile phones.

      Wow! Bigatin ka pala sir!hehe Buy ka nlng po ng isa tapos try it out. Save mo na lang muna money mo. :D

      Or if you really want to buy two, search here for cherry mobile phones. Marami pong cool and affordable phones ang Cherry Mobile. To name a few: Cherry Mobile Click, Burst, Hyper, Flame, Omega HD, Titan, etc.
      Or try out other local brands, MyPhone, Starmobile, Cloudfone.

      Sana nakatulong. Or baka nakalito lang..haha
      dami po kasi kayong choice depende sa budget, preference, etc.

    1. Hello Mel! Today, you have a lot of choices for quality android phones. From cherry mobile, (from cheapest to expensive) CM Click, Flare, Burst, Thunder, Titan, Hyper, Flame, Omega. If you are looking for affordable go for Click but if you are looking for the best (so far) go for the CM Omega HD. Search nyo na lang po dito yang mga phones na yan sa search box sa taas. Mayroon din from Starmobile and Cloudfone. :)

      Delete
    2. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll do check it out. I've just lost a phone, an Lg L3 (it's not as high-end as other android phones, but it worked just fine for me), so I was in a hurry to buy a cheap one but ended up like being robbed of my money :-(

      Delete
    3. this is unfortunate. Sayang po pera at yung LG L3. But i hope you consider my suggestions. Basahin nyo na rin po ang mga comments pra malaman nyo pros and cons. Sana nakatulong.

      Delete
    4. I have checked out the CM Omega HD. It's quite tempting to buy one although it's a bit pricey. I'm not really into tekki stuff but what I really want is a phone with good enough picture quality for printing and sharing and good quality sound for playing music since it's really inconvenient to bring a separate camera and mp3 player.Which would you recommend because from what I've read in the comments, Flare has issues regarding sound quality and the camera isn't that good :)

      Delete
    5. You are right Mel. Flare has some issues when it comes to sound and video/photo quality. Pero para sa akin OK na ito..haha madali lang kasi ako masatisfy..haha
      But if you really want to have a good camera go for Titan or the Omega HD. As far as I know those two phones has no issues in sound and picture quality. But between the two, I will go for the Omega HD.

      Delete
    6. ok thanks for all the suggestions, as soon as I buy any of the suggestions you've made, I'll give you some feedback :)

      Delete
    7. Mel, you cant go wrong with cm omega hd when it comes to camera. It uses back side illumination sensor already. Regarding mp3 not sure about the quality. Flare just fine but fusion bolt sound quality is better especially if you're using a good pair of earphones.

      If you just want good battery check the cloudfone thrill 430x with 4000mah. A bit chunky though.

  24. Sir im planning to buy one. I got worried about the comments on the batt problems kasi nga gusto ko sana yung matagal mag lowbatt. If ever i will buy an extra spare of batt, anong exact batt ba ang bibilhin? sa comments sa taas pwede sa S3? at tsaka magkano kaya ang price ng batt na yan sa S3. What exact model at maH? Tsaka sir, hindi po ba ito madaling masira if ever mag change ako ng OS niya? I like trying different OS at themes kasi. I've heard sa isang forum site na prone daw sa pagka corrupt pag mag change ng OS ang flare.? Thanks sa advice in advance. More power to CM!.

    Replies
    1. the battery really sucks.with this phone, your charger will be your best buddy..check out Cloudfone Thrill 430x with 4000mAh. regarding kung madaling magchange ka nang OS, my answer is no...im using Galaxy Flare ROM (based on galaxy s duos FW). kung nabricked mo while flashing it, sira talaga phone mo lalo na kung hard bricked.

      Delete
    2. Flare kasi ang uso last year kaya maraming custom ROMs nagawa. Even until now, hot pa rin ang custom ROMs ng Flare. Pero if you really want to change OS, FLare is best for experimentation. :)

  56. Hi, i would like to know if:

    1. do i need to stop the running apps when not in use para ndi agad ma-drain yung battery?
    2. is there any way na maalis/uninstall yung mga apps (kabayan, etc) na installed na dito when i bought the flare?
    3. can i remove the unnecessary widgets? how?

    thank you :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. 1. It would be good if you stop running apps, but not all. Just those apps that you know you used and not the system apps.
      2. Kabayan is pre-installed kaya hindi yan ma-uninstall. But if you root your phone baka maalis yan. For other apps, you can transfer it to SD to free some space. Go to settings, apps, choose an app, then may option na "Move to SD".
      3. Just hold and press the widget, may lalabas na "Remove" sa taas tapos idrag mo yung Widget going there. Mawawala yan sa desktop mo. Tip: alisin mo na lahat ng icons sa desktop, meron na man yan sa home. :)

    2. what about the google services, wiper app.. are those system apps? i'm clueless..

    3. google services is a system app including wiper. Para simple, yung apps na nasa phone na mostly are system apps, yung downloaded from Google Play are not system apps. Sana nakatulong. :)

    And I just want to ask if kakayanin kaya talaga nya 32gb sd card? baka kase mag lag siya or ma corrupt lang. etc.2.

    I'm about to buy CMF kase.

    Looking forward for your reply paps. thanks in advance.
