  1. This is useless. They have TOUCH HD up on sale on Lazada with the very same price. It’s HD, 8GB and has 1GB RAM compared to that 512. They have to move on now from sub-1GB RAM, it’s now 2015.

    1. Can’t argue with you there friend. TOUCH HD is way better than this unit in every way.Though its Lazada, while I personally bought 3 things without problem from them, thats only because I’m in Metro Manila, a lot of people are still turned off by it Lol.

  2. Looks like Cherry is riding on the popularity of Samsung’s Galaxy J1/J2, there is some obvious… inspiration with that Flare J1 branding. 🙂

    1. Try to visit PUREGOLD-PASAY-LIBERTAD. I bought mine there. I think it’s still on sale but it’s bundled with 8gig sd card that costs 250 so you’ll have to buy it for 2249. I can assist you if you don’t know how to get there. Just drop a message on my facebook. It’s Louiese Laxus.
