Cherry Mobile Ace Firefox Smartphone Price Cut from P1,499 to Php999

This Firefox OS powered smartphone from Cherry Mobile called Ace initially landed in the Philippines early last month with an official price tag of Php1,499.  Couple of days ago via a very limited audience and small event held by Cherry Mobile in Makati together with representatives from Mozilla and a few tech bloggers, they officially launched the Ace smartphone with a discounted price tag of just Php999, which makes it the most affordable smartphone. That less-than-a-thounsand-peso discounted price will be offered at any CM concept stores and kiosks only from December 13-15 2014.

Cherry Mobile Ace specs:

- 3.5" HVGA display
- 480x320 resolution
- 1.0GHz Single-core processor
- 128MB RAM
- 256MB internal storage
- Supports microSD card up to 16GB
- 2MP rear camera
- Firefox OS v1.3T
- Dual-SIM
- WiFi, Bluetooth
- Light Blue, Black, Light Red, Light Green, Orange, Yellow and White
- 1,100mAh battery
- Php999

The Cherry Mobile Ace will be available in seven different color options such as Light Blue, Black, Light Red, Light Green, Orange, Yellow and White, but so far we are only seeing the one in white, hopefully when I visit a Cherry Mobile I will see the other color options too.

By now you may have realized that the Ace has very low set of specs, well we cannot blame anybody on that since the phone has a very low price point. However Mozilla and CM are pointing out that Android OS and Firefox OS are two completely different mobile operating systems and the Firefox OS is more optimized with the phone's relatively low specs and should perform very well when being used even in browsing the internet, many other tech blogs that have reviewed the device also claim the same. GadgetPilipinas is one of them.

According to a post on, Mozilla rep told them that even the Ace has only 1,100mAh battery size, "it’s optimized extremely well that the 1100mAh battery on the Ace can keep the phone going for around two days without charging with light to moderate use.".

 Now that makes me more interested in this new Cherry Mobile smartphone, I hope to get one in the very near future and have a chance to prove it myself.
