Cherry Mobile Releases the Flare XL Plus


A few weeks ago, we shared leaks for another phablet from Cherry Mobile – The Flare XL 2. But, just like some of our favorite pocket monsters appear in the wild (Yes, we are psyched about Pokemon Go), Cherry Mobile outs their Flare XL Plus; a 5.5-inch smartphone with an emphasis on style.

Here are its specifications:

  • 1.4 GHz MediaTek 6592 Octa-core Processor
  • 5.5-inch HD IPS Screen; 1280×720 Resolution
  • 2 GB of RAM
  • 16 GB of Internal Storage; Expandable up to 64GB
  • Mali 450MP GPU
  • 13 Megapixel Rear Camera
  • 8 Megapixel Front Camera
  • Dual SIM
  • 3G, WiFi b/g/n, GPS, AGPS
  • 2300 mAh Removable Battery
  • Android Lollipop 5.1

The Flare XL Plus gives a premium on looks with geometric patterns on its removable back with White, Black, Gold, Pink and Blue color variants.Β Let us know in the comments below if you’d like to hear more about the Cherry Mobile Flare XL Plus and we’ll try to get a review so we can help you weigh in. The Flare XL Plus is priced at P 3,999 and is available at Cherry Mobile stores, kiosks, or selected retailers.

  1. Heh… Trying to counter the Cloudfone Excite Prime, but fails due to 2300 mAh battery, compared to CEP’s 2800 mAh. Still, would like to know what kind of camera sensor the XL Plus is using, since CEP is said to have an Omnivision sensor after all.

  2. I got that phone.. I’m former Flare XL user and i notice that the Flare XL Plus is consumed too much battery than predecessor. The front camera is also bad in low light but superb in a good light condition. For me this is my rating: Speed 9/10, Smoothness 9/10, Battery Life 5/10, Rear Camera 8/10, Front Camera 7/10.

  3. Ive got this phone and istill usinh it. So far so Good but ive buy a power bank for back up. Yeah the battery was too low :3 but in specs its Good πŸ™‚

  4. I jst bought the phone and so far am not satisfied actualy madali ma lowbat madali mag hang pag may sd card kang nilagay and the front cam is a headache 8 megapixels pa naman sana pero pangt ang kuha pag d masyado maliwanag ang ilaw and parang naka zoom in yung front cam ma compare mo talaga sa ibang cp yung front cam nya napaka pangit. Plano kong itapon πŸ™

  5. Battery ang issue mga paps.. i have it 2 days na pero i was thinkin if i wilk change it to flare octa power kaso. Maganda cam nya yung battery lang tlga ang problem or issue
