CM Flare 2X now out, packs twice as much RAM

Cherry Mobile has just started selling the Flare 2X which, in a nutshell, is similar to the recently announced Flare 2.0 but with 1GB RAM encased inside a shiny new packaging.

In addition to the RAM upgrade, CM also gave the Flare 2X a minor facelift on the imaging department, equipping it with 8MP snapper instead of 5MP.

Cherry Mobile Flare 2X specs:
4″ WVGA (480 x 800) 3-point touch screen LCD, 233ppi
1.2GHz Qualcomm 8225Q quad-core CPU
Adreno 203 GPU
1GB RAM
8 megapixel AF camera w/ LED flash
VGA front-facing
3G, WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth
dual-SIM
4GB of internal storage
up to 32GB via microSD
1,550mAh battery
Android 4.1.2 Jellybean

All of these subtle improvements will only set you back Php4,499 which Php500 more than what you’ll pay for a Flare 2.0 which is priced at Php3,999. It isn’t too shabby at all considering the benefits of having 1GB RAM. However, do note that the handset is on a limited stock so it’s best if you grab one while it is still available.

    good job cm naaddress nyu agad ung doubts ng iba about the insufficient ram of flare 2.0 ……..kaso sana maaddress nyu rin ung problema sa aftersales service nyu hahaha pero anyway naimpress ako sa pagannounce nito

    • crackinthewall says:

      The Flare 2.0 is different from the Flare 2x so it will still be insufficient. The Flare 2.0′s RAM will always be 512MB.

    • wew says:

      uhhmm….crackinthewall bobo lang? di ko sinabing wala ng issue sa flare 2.0 sa kadahilanang 1 gb na ung ram nya…ang sinasabi kong issue ay ung tungkol sa insuffiecient ram ng flare 2.0 na naaddress sa pamamagitan ng paglabas ng flare 2x.

  3. Mang Kanor says:

    Ano kaya ang reactions ng mga unang bumili ng Flare 2 na hindi nila nalalaman na may 2X pala?

  4. Gran Cero says:

    Ok sana siya kung gumagamit ang Cherry Mobile ng LCD/LED capacitive touchscreen, hard touch kasi eh. At 1,550 mah battery? Mas ok pa din sa mga high end market bumili. But this is just my opinion, anyway if you want to buy it just go! Just always remember to be practical. :)

    mura nga pangit naman….specs specs pa!!! walang quality yan

  6. charisse says:

    ok lang sakin yung spec sa price point, yun nga lang bakit kapal ng bezel sa gilid?

    • abuzalzal says:

      You’re right honey
      Defeats the purpose of a 4-inch phone right? xd

      yung dimensions parang ultra-slim 5-incher eh

    • crackinthewall says:

      For 4.5k, magrereklamo ka sa bezels? Even 20k phones have thick bezels. What you should be worried about are the bugs (picky audio jack, touch bug) in CM phones. Ang problema sa rebranded phones, hindi kontrolado ng CM yung OS updates. Kung ano lang ilabas nung ODM, yun na yun.

  7. Flare 2X owner says:

    I love it. It’s for everyone who wants to own a quad core phone and experience Jelly Bean without emptying his bank account.

  8. meh says:

    I’ve been so several malls and haven’t seen it for sale, any idea where to pick one up in Manila?

  9. Killua16 says:

    Ano po original name nito? I mean rebranded version po ito ng isang phone, right?

  10. abuzalzal says:

    FINALLY

    CM acknowledging that Jelly Bean + 512 mb RAM doesn’t cut it anymore

    Now get rid of that dog-of-a-gpu called the Adreno 203

  11. wew says:

    guys!check out the new myphone rain 3g for only 3K =) mas mababa man specs nya panigurado naman na maganda ang quality at aftersales service.

  12. Still says:

    but still CM uses old specs such as TFT Dusplay, Cortex A5 processors and Adreni 203 GPU

    • wew says:

      gago ka ba
      edi wag kang magflare!itong phone na to eh para sa mga taong kailangan lang eh ung pinakabasic,kung gusto mo ng mas mabilis na phone taasan mo budget mo magipon ka hindi ung magrereklamo ka ang mura na nga nito eh.

  13. vie says:

    flare 2x has 1.4g internal memory not 4g =(

    • wew says:

      @vie 4gig talaga internal memory nyan kaso dahil sa OS,etc. 1.4 gig na lang ang available para sa user na pwedeng ipangstore ng msuic,videos,apps,etc.

    ..nice nice ang cm flare 2x..ang bilis ng operation nya at level ng isa ko pang LG L7 2 ..difference lang nito sa LG L7 is yong battery ng cm flare 2x pang hanggang 1 day lang of massive usage, while ang LG L7 2 aabot hanggang 3 days!..sa ibang aspects,at level lang ang LG L72 at CM Flare 2x

  15. Jepoy says:

    Bought this one yesterday. Ok naman sya misis ko lang naman gagamit. Basic fb, viber, surfing simple games. Napansin ko lang mabilis malowbat. Or ganun ba talaga kabilis madrain. Online kasi lagi coz of pocket wifi at home. 4,499 price at any CM shop. Still waiting for jelly case from CM wala pa daw stock kasi kakalabas pa lang. Better than its competitor at the same price and specs.

  16. Mikko says:
