Meet the Cherry Mobile Flare 2X

If you are a little bit disappointed with Cherry Mobile Flare 2.0's 512MB RAM then this other CM Flare might catch your eyes as it offers 1GB of RAM for a price of Php4,499. That's just an additional Php500 from the price of the Flare 2.0. The two Flares offer almost the same specs and looks and the most notable exception are its RAM and the camera. Read on for more details.

Like what I said about the camera on this Flare 2X (as what you can see in the image above) it is pegged at 8MP with LED Flash. The display offers a 4-inch WVGA capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 480x800 which is equivalent to 233ppi, the same resolution you get from the Flare 2.0. These two new handsets from Cherry Mobile share the same processor with the same calibration at 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm MSM8225Q. Internal storage will provide you 4GB of space right away that also can be expanded up to 32GB. Running on Android 4.1, the Flare 2X also sports dual-SIM and dual-Standby functionality. 3G, WiFi, GPS and Bluetooth for connectivity purposes and 1,500mAh battery.  All of that for only Php4,499.

I would personally choose this 2X over the 2.0 and I don't mind adding extra 500 pesos to spend on this budget-friendly smartphone.  The battery? I don't mind it as well as it is a common problem of both smartphone manufacturers and consumers, I can survive with that. If you want a bigger battery-equipped Android smartphone, you may choose the Cloudfone Thrill 530QX which will surely last you for days with its 4,500mAh monstrous battery. Now if you have made up your mind about purchasing the Cherry Mobile Flare 2X, you better move faster as per Cherry Mobile SM North Edsa Facebook page, the stocks are limited.
