    thumbs down po sa battery. dinagdagan nila ng additional cores meaning to say mas lakas kumain ng battery.pero ang battery hindi nila pinalaki kahit 2100 mah man lang. still 1800 mah. im heading on the next cherry mobile festival this year…

  7. jhonz says:

    any idea kung magkano original price talaga? or 4,499 talaga sya kahit after the feb 28 sale?

  8. Loco says:

    Sobrang baba ng battery capacity, kaya free yung powerbank eh. Magbabaga sa init yang phone na yan. 1GB RAM? Come on! Anyway, nice try!

    Users now somehow check specs before buying. Not worth buying.

    Yung flare s3 ko po, pag hapon na wala na makita sa front cam niya, sobrang dilim na. Pero pag umaga ok naman sobrang linaw. At yung pag nagpopost ako sa fb ng mga pictures ko, lumalabo compare sa nakasave sa gallery.
