  • 2GB of RAM

The Flare S4 Plus is the most premium of the Flare family, slotting just above the Flare X in price and build. It uses a full metal body (back and frame are metal) though some would argue that the chipset used (same as the Meizu M2 Note and Flash 2) are a downgrade, not an upgrade, to the Flare X.

The two other phones are the most interesting and are the real game-changers. Aside from body style – the Flare S4 has a more masculine look to the more rounded Flare 4 – both phones are identical. They use a smaller, lower resolution display compared to the Flare S4 Plus (5-inch HD) and has 1GB of RAM less. Both phones have specs that are similar to Alcatel’s Flash 2, though both phones are significantly cheaper, going for Php 4,999 as opposed to Php 6,190.

  1. pra sa sub 5k category…panalo pren si Flare S3 Power.para sa akin ha kasi magagawa mo parin nman yung kyang gwin ni S4 sa S3. pampanalo lang ung Android 5.1 ni S4. Kung makakapg release ang CM ng Flare S4 Power at around 5499 then yun ang magandang variation ng 4th gen 😀

    1. “They use a smaller, lower resolution display compared to the Flare S4 Plus (5-inch HD) and has 1GB of RAM less” ibig sabihin po 1gb po ng RAM ang binawas sa 2gb RAM ng flare s4/4 compare sa 3gb ram ng S4 plus

      1. the sentence means 1GB of RAM less compared to flare s4 plus, which has 3GB. so 3GB less 1GB, ilan? diyos mio, para akong nagpapaliwanag sa grade 1.

  2. haha engot.. anong 1gb ram lang. ibig sabihin ang s4 plus 3gb ram at ung dalawa ay less ng 1gb compared sa s4 wherein 2g ram ang 4 at s4. getz mo na? wahahhaa

  3. OEM ng Flare S4 Plus is Cubot X15. Google it and see. para sakin sulit ang Flare S4 Plus 🙂 Design palang panalo na and sa screen, bezel-less design XD

  4. may tanong lang po ako sa Flare 4 at S4…medyo particular po kasi ako sa performance ng phones eh 🙂 and it seems like nag-improve na po ang Cherry ngayon. yung Omega Icon ng kuya ko, ok pa hanggang ngayon.

    1. ilang touch points po ang Flare 4 at S4?

    2. hindi po ba nag-lag ang camera, or madilim ang flash? kasi yung Starmobile UP+ ko, sobrang dismaya ako sa camera niya, napaka-dilim ng flash, tsaka may split-second lag ang camera before na-take and actual photo….never buying a Starmobile again!

    3. anong sensors ang available ng Flare 4 at S4? (example: accelerometer, proximity, compass, gyro, light, etc….)

    thank you po 🙂

    1. hi,soo beautiful phones.. anong model nung rose gold?i like it..please answer me..ang ganda po nya talaga’please..bibili po kasi ako ng smartphone ng cherry mobile,please po.
