Quad-cores just getting cheaper and cheaper

If you’re in the market for an affordable quad-core smartphone but don’t want to go below 1GB of RAM, Cherry Mobile has something for you. The company has teamed up with Lazada to offer the Touch HD, a 5-inch, quad-core smartphone for just 2,999. We’re not sure why the Touch HD isn’t part of Cherry Mobile’s Cubix lineup as it seems to be an online only thing for now, which may mean that the company may offer it at a later date in their offline stores (if you’re lucky).

Cherry Mobile Touch HD

  • 1.2GHz quad-core processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 5-inch HD IPS display, 1280 x 720 resolution
  • 8GB of internal storage, expandable
  • 8-megapixel rear camera
  • 2-megapixel front camera
  • Dual-SIM
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • Android 4.4 KitKat
  • 1800mAh battery

Anyway, the specs of the Touch HD hits all the right spots, and more importantly the phone has features and specs that you’d typically associate with more expensive phones in the market. At just Php 2,999 the Touch HD is a great phone for the price, considering it already has a HD display, quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. You’d be hard-pressed to find that value anywhere else. The phone will go on sale tomorrow in Lazada.

  1. This is confusing. On this blog, it said that the os is 5.1 lollipop and the battery life is 2000 mah. But for Lazada, it has 4.4 kitkat and 1800 mah battery? so, I dont, go check for Lazada and ask them about this before you buy it.

    1. Just called Cherry Mobile customer service to confirm. Touch HD is a legit product from them and that it is only sold online through Lazada because of some commitment/partnership contract they have.

      Now, not to get confused when you guys check Cherry Mobile website, you’ll notice that they have 3 models of Touch (Cherry Mobile Touch, Cherry Mobile Touch 3G and Cherry Mobile Touch XL). Those are what they offer through their website and stalls.

      Cherry Mobile Touch HD is different as it is only available through Lazada (currently).

      As for the specifications, (please see below which was copied from the one shown above), they’re all TRUE.

      8GB of internal storage, expandable
      8-megapixel rear camera
      2-megapixel front camera
      Dual-SIM
      WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
      Android 4.4 KitKat
      1800mAh battery

      Hope this clarifies things with all the confusion other people might been having (Just got one myself just a few hours ago after calling Cherry Mobile customer service ^_^).

      1. *** Please allow me to correct myself, for the Android version, it is —— Android Lollipo 5.1. Thanks! ***

  2. I bought Cherry Mobile Touch HD sa Lazada last week.. Ok nman po xa.. I installed more than 10 apps and hindi nman xa nglalag.. the battery is fine.. it can last a day khit mglaro ka mghapon.. hindi rin xa masyado nainit.. The camera is a bit grainy pero ok na rin malinaw naman .. Malinaw ang Screen .. It has crisp sound .. Ok na ok pnonood ng movie and music playing.. Flexible pa ung back cover. at first, im a bit hesitant of buying this phone kase prang sobrang mura sa specs til I tried to buy and naisip ko po.. SULIT talaga! NO REGRETS! :)
