Amazing Budget-Friendly Cherry Mobile Life Announced

Cherry Mobile just took the wraps off their newest entry-level dual-core offering, the Cherry Mobile Life, and it is looking very good! For just Php2,999 you get a device that has relatively the same specifications as the smash hit Cherry Mobile Flare (sold for Php3,999). There’s one significant notable upgrade though, the Cherry Mobile Life can connect to faster mobile internet thanks to HSPA+.

Here’s the full rundown on the specs.

Definitely great value for money if we’ll base it just on the spec sheet. We’ll try to drop by the mall this weekend to buy a unit so we can feature it here on the site as well as during next week’s podcast. Wish us luck! Hopefully there will still be stocks available.

Ang di maganda yung camera na 5mp daw eh ang dark at grainy parang 0.3mp lang sya at yung front cam 0.1mp lang ata lalo akong pumangit sa kuha hahaha. Compare sa Samsung Corby na 2mp ko na 3 years ago pa malinaw at maliwanag ang shots at sabay ko lang naman nag clik ng cam.

    Mapansin mo naman agad kasi dark at grainy yung makikita mo a screen ng CM Life at isa pa napansin ko yung view pa lang parang naka zoom sya 3x kahit di nka zoom ang lapit ng kuha compare sa Corby malayo pa review naman yung ca camera ng CM Life salamat po.

  6. Ang hirap naman po makakuha ng after-sale support from cherry mobile. Tapos dun po sa nabilhan ko, sumisimangot yung isang sales lady everytime I ask questions regarding their product. Di rin ma-contact service center nila. Di rin sila nag re-reply sa mga messages ko sent to their fb account and through their online form found on their website. Ok line-up, ok rin yung distribution ng stores nila prro ang pangit, pangit ng service.

  7. is the hspa+ band (2100Mhz) supported by the network providers? kakalito kasi ung info sa net about hspa+ ng globe at smart, nakalagay 2100Mhz band pero d 2100 ung uplink at downlink. pakiexplain po. balak ko kasi talaga bumili nito for 2 reasons; 1.GAMING and 2.Hspa+

  8. I got Life few weeks ago. its amazing smartphone:) eto yung phone na anti-thief. yung kahit manakaw o mawala di masakit sa heart. there are some issues lg.basically the cam. but ofcourese what do you expect sa 3k.when it comes to gaming its excellent. ng download lg aq ng themes medjo na lag sya..heavy lg cgro ng themes ko. but in overall its really a good deal as a smartphone
