Cherry Mobile Flare S7 Hands-On, First Impressions

Cherry Mobile has released three of their newest smartphones from the Flare S series. Today, we’re taking a look at the Flare S7. Check out our impressions below.

Cherry Mobile made a significant difference with its design especially the back panel. Compared to its predecessor, the Flare S7 has a matte finish at the back and now has a polycarbonate material with a glossy coating. The device looks solid and premium at first glance.

On the front is a 5.5-inch screen with a pre-installed screen protection. Above, is the 13MP + 2MP dual front cameras, call speaker and sensors.

On the right is the usual power button-volume rocker combination.

On top is the lone 3.5mm audio port while at the bottom are the USB Type-C port, microphone, and loudspeakers.

Flip on its back and you’ll find the 13MP + 2MP dual rear cameras, positioned vertically, with a LED flash and fingerprint sensor.

Just like with their previous iteration, the Flare S7 has a removable back which hides the dual-SIM card slots, micro SD slot, and removable 2,400mAh battery.

The Flare S7 is also lightweight due to its plastic build although we’re not a fan of its proneness to smudges and fingerprints.

The device is powered by a MediaTek MT6738WA processor, PowerVR GE8100 GPU, 2GB/3GB RAM, and an Android 8.1 Oreo OS. We’ll take the Flare S7 for a full spin in the coming days so stay tuned!
