Two really good budget phones

Budget-friendly but Quality Quad-core Smartphone

Cherry Mobile recently outed the Cherry Mobile Flare 2X, a quad-core smartphone with 1GB RAM that sold for just Php4,499. That’s definitely major bang for your buck. We also noticed though that they’re also releasing a new variant of the Flare called the Cherry Mobile Flare S. It also has a quad-core processor and 1GB RAM. Here’s a quick rundown of the specifications for your appreciation.

Cherry Mobile Flare S Spec Sheet

  • 1.3GHz Quad-core Processor (Chipset TBC)
  • 1GB RAM
  • 4GB Internal Storage, expandable via MicroSD Card
  • 4.0-inch IPS Display
  • 8.0-megapixels primary camera
  • VGA secondary camera
  • WiFi, WiFi Hotspot, 3G, Bluetooth
  • Dual SIM, Dual Standby
  • Android Jelly Bean 4.2
  • Battery TBC
  • Comes with Free Case
  • SRP: Php4,499

With the same price tag as the Cherry Mobile Flare 2X you have to wonder what’s the difference between the two devices. Based on what we’re seeing with the specs they have different processors (though we’re not sure which is better) and the Flare S packs a display with IPS technology for better viewing angles.

As usual we’ll try our best to secure review units for both very soon! Watch this space for more info.
