Cherry Mobile Orbit goes on 50% Sale

Cherry Mobile’s latest Android smartphone is a dual-SIM handset. Called the Cherry Mobile Orbit, the unit has a suggested retail price of Php12,998 but on May 19, CM will sell it for 50% off.

The SRP doesn’t seem to be that attractive considering there are a number of Samsung and LG Android phones in that range. However, at Php6,499, it could convince a number of CM fans to grab one that day. That and the fact that this is a dual-SIM phone.

  1. eto experience ko sa orbit:

    1st day: fully charged at 10pm. pagkagising ko ng 7am, dead ang unit dahil drained ang battery.

    2nd day: fully charged at 10pm. i turned off edge and unchecked use of network connections. at 7am, 43% na lang ang battery.

    3rd day: fully charged at 10pm. turned of all connections(3g, edge, etc.) and disabled the 2nd sim card. used Netqin Android Booster(fr App Market). at 7am, 86% ang battery.

    hindi tatagal ang Orbit ng naka-dual active sim. Disable niyo yung 2nd sim para makatagal kayo ng maghapon. maghapon lang kasi di na aabot ng gabi. parang bumili lang tayo ng single sim na android. ano ba yan Cherry and Gigabyte! pakipalitan ang mga battery namin!

    maganda sana kaso palpak ang battery :(

    Cherry phones are easy to use. It combines the Nokia and Samsung OS and patterns. But it costs much to have it repaired coz parts are not available except at Cherry repair centers. For lcd of M33 w/c costs P2,300 you spend P1,300.00. Not practical compared to LCDs of brand phones costing P600 to P900.
