Let us see how this battle ends up. These android phones are both priced at Php4,999. Both phones are released by Cherry Mobile.
Let me lay it out simply. Let us do a Specifications Fight! I have emphasized aspects where they differ.
On the left corner, the Cherry Mobile Thunder. And on the right, the recently released Cherry Mobile Hyper.
Thunder: 4.5" FWVGA Capacitive Screen
Hyper: 5" Capacitive Screen
Thunder: 5MP (Main - rear) no flash, VGA (front)
Hyper: 5MP (Main - rear) w/ flash, VGA (front)
Thunder: 4GB Internal Memory (MicroSD up to 32GB)
Hyper: 4GB Internal Memory (MicroSD up to 32GB)
Thunder: 512 MB
Thunder: 1 GHz Dual-core MediaTek MTK6577 chipset
Hyper: 1.2 GHz Dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon
Thunder: Wi-Fi capable, (unsure if capable of Wi-Fi hotspot)
Hyper: Wi-Fi capable, Wi-Fi hotspot
Thunder: 1700 mAh
Hyper: 2100 mAh (credits to lodz)
Thunder: Android 4.0 ICS
Hyper: Android 4.0 ICS
And the winner is?
From the specifications above, I would say that The Cherry Mobile Hyper won by split decision.
1. Dimension. The Cherry Mobile Hyper boasts a bigger screen size. I assume that it will also host a clearer resolution.
2. Clock Speed: The Hyper is clocked at 1.2 GHz with Qualcomm Snapdragon. But some say that MediaTeK processors are faster. If MediaTeK processors are faster then why do they say that it is clocked at 1 GHz, why not say it is 1.2 or 1.5. (:
3. Camera. Having a phone with flash is essential whether you are a photo addict or not. A built-in flash is handy.
I could not really compare the WI-FI, RAM and the BATTERY since the Cherry Mobile Hyper is still in its first release. However, I really doubt of Hyper's RAM is less than 512 MB. For the battery, I would assume that Hyper would have 1500 mAh to 1700 mAh capacity. So that is fairly equal.
Hope this first Specifications Fight I made helped you make decisions on purchasing your android phone.
