Cherry Mobile Touch HD First Look


A kind user sent us his first impressions of the Cherry Mobile Touch HD

A few days ago Cherry Mobile officially put their super affordable, quad-core smartphone, the Touch HD, on sale in Lazada. The Touch HD is one of the most affordable smartphones in its class, possesing a 5-inch HD display along with a quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. While we’re waiting for Cherry Mobile to send their review unit of the budget handset, Unbox fan Khristian Tolentino was kind enough to share a few photos and screenshots from his device that he bought from Lazada.

His closeup shots of the Touch HD reveal a premium-looking faux leather finish at the back. He describes the display as superb comparable to MyPhone’s Infinity Lite, which is priced way higher than the Touch HD. Unfortunately, according to his tests, the Touch HD only has two multi-touch points, which is a bit of a bummer.

From what we can tell, the Touch HD uses a Spreadtrum 32-bit SC8830 quad-core processor, running at 1.3GHz. Becuase of the budget processor, the Touch HD isn’t really a powerhouse, only managing to score around 20K in AnTuTu. The phone is also running Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box.

Khristian also included a couple of sample images from the phone, which you can check out below:

And that’s it! Thanks again Khristian for sending us your photos of this unit. We’re trying to track down a review device so we can do our own unboxing and review, so stand by for that.

    1. Are you expecting something even midrange-level quality at this price point? Wag kang biased. At this price it’s a good phone. Not a fan of CM, but for what it’s worth, it’s pretty decent overall.

  1. Dear John. Ano po mas sulit, etong Touch HD or Razor 2.0? Magkaprice po kasi sa Lazada. Consideration ko is screen quality and camera only. Will not use for games kasi ibibigay ko lng sa nanay ko yung phone pang call and text at konteng picture.

        1. ok lang camera, dragontrail glass sya din pero like other cherry mobile units alam niyo na yun…. yung akin nabagsak hindi naman nabasag pero nung pinukpok sa ulo ayun basag (parts are available)

  2. Hello sir john nieves and everyone here

    I would like to ask the what is the diff/advantage and disadvantage between snapdragon and mediatek processor?(heating issues, gaming performance)

    Which is better to use in gaming snapdragon 410 or 615?? how about heating issues?is there any??

    thanks to all the replies…

  3. Sorry guys ha pero, PS VITA lang kase ang ginagamit ko for the internet connection. Madalas bigla itong nag re-refresh, pero hindi naman ako mareklamo, kase mabilis den. But if I buy this Smartphone, the Touch HD, ano pa ba ang reklamo ko dun, eh Affordable Android 5.1OS na nga sya.

  4. Mas mataas score nya sa Omega Spectrum (BroadCom quad core) at Flare 3 (Mediatek quad core) and only slightly lower than the Zenfone 5 (Intel dual core.) So it seems Speadtrum is a competent chip manufacturer? Better watch out for them, then.

    1. arte mo naman bro…kung ayaw mo ng Cherry..wag ka na makisali sa comment..baka mamaya hindi ka pa naka touch keypad pa cellphone mo…hehehe..:)

  5. Then dont buy it, no body ask you if you like it or you dont want to buy it, just stop posting your negative comments here kung mataas masyado ang tingin mo sa standards mo.

  6. Kase ang alam ko ang dapat na nag po-post ng comment dito eh yung mga interesado sa produkto na nai post sa mga blogs tulad nito. Sorry, My apology, asar lang talaga ako sa mga tao na maarte pa sa maarte.

    1. Boss james…yung saksakan ba ng charger sa cherry Touch HD matibay ba..kasi yung dati kong cell wala syang base or nakalitaw lang yung pinaka steel nya kaya madali masira?

  7. super laggy. Ewan kung software issue dahil bagong release. Sana mag fota update ang cm. ang lag sa coc. yung touch very unresponsive. parang hardware level ang problems.

  8. nag purchase din ako pagkalabas na pagkalabas ng touch hd. cam ok. screen res ok. pang games ok. physical ok. pwede na. may comment lang talaga ko. ang bagal niya sa downloading even sa pag FB and internet. compare sa me vibe ko and skyfire. di pwede makipagabayan. at may lag ang touch screen. anyways so-so. good thing its for my 1 year old son lang. pang games lang. but for heavy duty na pagne-net hindi advisable.

  9. Ah ganun ba? sige spoil pa more sa gadget para sa anak mo, pag hinde maagang manalamin yang anak mo. Isang malaking ka-bobohan ng mga magulang ngayon ang i-practice gumamit ng technologies ngayon ang anak nila. Basahan mo ng BOOKS yang anak mo para masanay o matutong mag salita at maging advance ang isip nyan. TANGA!

    1. WOW and you think being rude makes you a BETTER PERSON??? Ugh please. I dont let my kids play with any gadgets, but for PETES SAKE this is rude. I feel bad for your parents for failing to raise a person like you. Can you just just but off and mind your own business? Like hello, this is, not smartparenting.

  10. I have had this phone now for 1 week… It is a great phone for the price and then some! I have been playing heavy games here and the graphics are great! No lag what so ever! My hats off to cherry touch HD!

  11. Ask ko lang po 😀 Kasi bibili rin ako ng phone , 3k lang po yung budget ko . Eto na po ba yung best na phone for 3k ? Eto na po kasi yung bibilin ko . Suggest po kayo ng mas maganda dito para po di masayang yung pera ko 😀 Thank you 😀
