Cherry Mobile Officially Outs Flare S3 Power, Octa-core Smartphone with 4000mAh battery

Flare S3 Power

No more low bat

We’re practically spoilt with all the choices that are available nowadays for phones, especially with local brands. But battery capacity is still a big issue with a lot of them – that’s why Cherry Mobile is offering the Flare S3 Power. The Flare S3 Power has the same octa-core processor that powers similar offerings from other brands, with a big difference – it has a massive 4000mAh battery, which ensures that the Flare S3 Power can last more than a few days on a single charge.

Flare S3 Power

  • 1.4GHz octa-core processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 5-inch on-cell HD display, 1280 x 720 resolution
  • 8GB of storage, expandable via microSD
  • 13-megapixel Sony IMX219 camera
  • 5-megapixel front camera
  • Dual-SIM
  • 3G
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • 4000mAh battery

Other features include a 13-megapixel rear camera with an Sony IMX219 sensor, 5-inch HD on-cell display and a USB OTG function that allows the Flare S3 Power to act as a powerbank. The Flare S3 Power is priced at Php 4,999.

  1. Finally the long wait is over thumbs up for Cherry Mobile this is what i am waiting for and many fans of Cherry i bet is waiting for this good news 4000Mh battery ! can you provide for Cosmos 1 because mine easily gets low bat since it runs on octacore 2.0Ghz i will be very happy

  2. 1gb ram tapos 3g? pero match din sa price range. anong Sony IMX219 sensor tapos on cell display?

    1. The IMX219 satisfies the fulfillment performance of “high sensitivity” and “high frame rate imaging” to meet the demands for high-quality camera applications, and can be easily put on camera fronts of stylish and slim bezel devices achieved by the reduced size.

      One Glass Solution, the other approach is called “on-cell” capacitive touchscreen. (Here the “cell” refers to the LCD display.) A conductive layer of ITO is deposited directly onto the top layer of glass in the LCD panel, and then patterned into electrodes.

      1. daming ram-tards dito, sige nga magbigay kayo ng phone na 4gb ang ram,na below 5k ang price,na MERON din 13/5mp camera,HD screen at 4000mah battery? palibhasa wala kayo pambili kaya reklamo lang ng reklamo. hahaha.

          1. ung sinsabe mu 1.5 or 2gb ram ay umaabot sa 7k plus… un ung asus.. peru ung ibang brand nsa 12k plus… demand pa more

  3. affordable na sa 5k.. yung akin ung omega xl and now ginagamit ko padn medyo my tama na sa battery pero until now smooth padn..

  4. Ay, spoiled na nyaon ang mga pinoy??when it comes to specs. ?GB is more than enough especially when it’s running on chery mobile especially on the 5k price range. Mag zenfone2 nga kayo kung ang gawa nyo lang mag reklamo. Oh what’s this? ?k??ala yung zenfone 2.

  5. At least si Cherry Mobile is still fighting it out sa low end (5K less) which is practical for that specs, eh si MyPhone and Starmobile for the mid range (6-10K or more) is a now hard to imagine given the fact na mas better specs pa Alcatel, Lenovo, Xiaomi, Zenfone for that price range. Well pana-panahon lang yan. Good for the consumers. Just send out all the reviews para naman sulit sa perang pinaghihirapan. Cheers!!!

  6. This can be a good alternative as a daily driver. Sir, do you have any idea if there is any glass protection in this? Thanks!

  7. Wow!grabe kayo mag react pag 1gb yung ram sanay kayo sa 2gb at 4gb na ram hane? 5k price nya tapos 4000mah.sulit na yan para sakin.

  8. Nice! Yung iba dyan nakarinig lang ng 4GB RAM na spec na kulangan na sa 1GB na RAM. Very nice offer CM! Definitely considering this for my mom. Can’t wait to read the reviews!

  9. KUDOS to CM, at least meron silang business sense. Naghahanap sila ng magandang ioffer na sensible sa market. High batt at a good price point. thumbs up! sayang masaya pako sa CM Blaze 2.0 ko na nabili ko lng ng 3k pesos

    1. I sold my CM Blaze 2.0 for P4K bargained with all of its accessories just to buy this CM Flare S3 Power. Worth it and Im very satisfied naman. . . Nice CM. . . Tagal ko inabangan to. Hehehe

  10. Wait and see tayo for the actual review. But definitely this is better priced than Infinity 2 ng Myphone. Hopefully scratch resistant yung screen. 4k batt is massive! Ok tong pang text call and some ocassional games and videos. No need to charge sa hapon 🙂

  11. Walang kwenta ang 4000mah kung hindi optimized ang software. Abangan na lang ang review kung heavy duty talaga to sa games at wifi/3g searching.

    1. matagal naman po base sa experience ko maghapon naka wifi 75% lang nabawas tapos off ko ng overnight ang wifi pagka umaga nasa 19% pa ang flare s3 power ko.. maganda talaga..

  12. You e-diots should stop complaining about the RAM and whatnot, for what it is, it is a very compelling buy (720p, BIG battery OTG, dual sim) , tsaka dito na dapat nagko – concentrate ang mga local players, hellooo MyPhone, StarMobile, Oplus! Iwan na nila ang PHP8k above price bracket dahil masakit mang tanggapin, binulaga na sila ng mga International brands

    1. Pwede magcompete sa 8k up basta magbayad ng madaming celebrity endorsers. Benta ng dual code 512mbram 4gb storage for 12k basta si Daniel Padilla at Vic Sotto ang nasa poster ayos na ayos yan

  13. Yes, yes yo! Cherry Mobile hits the bulls eye with this product! Ang aftersales service nalang ang pagbutihin nyo, siguradong loyal for life na ang maraming Pinoy sa yo! Wohooo! (I have Apollo)

  14. pagkakarinigko kasi sa mga S3 user e battery lang ang problema pero pagdating ng video playing ng mga hd at games ok n ok nmn.. so sulit na sa 5k to.. and dun sa mga 2-4gb ram.? kung ang gagawin lang din naman ay mg ttext bakit pa kelanganng 2-4gb ram?

  15. I agree with King Jom-Un and ARF-01. For its price its ok already. Just need to see the real world performance nung 4k batt. I used to have the Cherry Mobile Fuze with the same large batt and it last quite some time. But the diff is it using FWVGA and not HD.

    Only a full review will tell if this is really worth buying.

  16. what for that price?ok lng sila… AlcatelFP 2gig Ram octacore, 16internal,expandable,13/8 mp ang cam,dual LTE (fyi may LTE sa area ko),battery 3500 mah ang batt… 6400 lng…ayusin muna kaya nila after sales nila… bago sila makipagkumpitensya kung ano ano… Cherry Mobile cge nga tapatan mo Specs Ni Lenovo at Alcatel at pati price tignan natin kung sino lalangawin?!? Masaya to CM

  17. Hi! I’m planning to buy this kind of phone, i’m really satisfy with the specs no worries i just doubt, what if mag hang? Diba non-removable yung battery? Hmm answer me pls. Thank you!!

  18. may problem ba talaga na sa cherry mobile s3 power pagkatapos ko kse tumawag or tinawagan ako naka black screen ako. at nag bblink lng yung ilaw. di ko alam panu gagawin at nag llast yung black screen uo to 30 mins or more

  19. Not sure bout this model line of the Flare S3, but mine which the 1,800mah Flare S3 octa has a very very glitchy touch screen. Making web browsing a pain(scrolling down would cause it to click into unwanted links), causing loss of control in some games, making typing hell..

    Plus service center techs is telling me to live with it. No effort in trying to fix the issue. Just their effort for their “dahilan” and making it look like my fault for having big hands AND their lack of willingness to help. Fact is they had given me several unrelated reasons. Parang hindi issue sa kanila yun. Meaning they are aware of this problem and they are playing it down.

    Well they reformatted my unit and still the same inaccurate touchscreen madness.

    I also know now that im not alone in this.

    Judging on CM’s history on their flare model lines, from the toasting out of the g-sensor to todays inherently crap touchscreen, proves how little attention is given to R&D and to quality standards CM has.

    Goes to show they just ask some random chinese phone maker to clobber together an octa core phone without testing if components will integrate smoothly and work together.

    No wonder the cheap prices.

    P.s.
    Their megamall store did not allow me to play around with a test unit. This is not a good practice because you can only test it once bought.

    Had i been able to test a test unit i would have chosen something else.
