These two phones may save your life

Cherry Mobile has unveiled two new rugged feature phones that may just bust you out of a jam when disaster strikes. The U6 and the U7 are ruggedized, water-resistant phones that have emergency features built-in. The U7 is your typical ruggedized phone with a 2-inch TFT display and is both dust and weather proof. The U7 has a small flashlight on the top.

The U6 is more interesting – it’s physically bigger while retaining the same weather-resistant properties of its smaller brother, but has a nifty trick up its sleeve – it can act as a powerbank to charge other devices. The U6 has an internal 2600mAh battery that can be used as emergency power when you need it, and has a larger flashlight at the top of the device. That flashlight is as bright as most emergency torches that you can buy commercially, and can be set to spell out SOS in morse code and can function as a strobe light when disaster strikes.

  1. Between these and the MyPhone my112, I think the MyPhone is a better bet. It’s cheaper at P1,399 and will work better as a powerbank alternative, thanks to its 6,000 mAh battery.

  2. i have a DTC Gear 4800mah and seen the My Phone Power Bank phone 6000mah… but to compare as a power bank they beat Cherry U6, but total package U6 is technically better, waterproof and smaller that DTC and My Phone, either camping or living in Phils were it can flood makes other powerbank phone meh!… upgrading soon, to bad they only have 2 colours

    1. Almost convinced by some guys here muntik binili ko yung myphone 112, granted presyo tipid and battery wow 6000mah, but after looking and testing same was yup presyong laroan parang laroan, all in CM U6 is these better phone, went to a shop had all three side by… Bali best to see with your hands and eyes then you can’t deny ranking…

      used to own a DTC gear, sold to pinsan so can upgrade, and I recommend DTC kung gusto nyo strong MAH and nice look and feel phone
