    1600mAh on a quadcore device..okay that will be a big let down for this device..but yeah..you get for what you paid.

  2. Freeje says:

    And the battery will last for an hour or so!

  3. Smokescreen says:

    Quad core, 1gb of RAM, 4.5inch qHD screen on a 1600mah battery!

    That’s gonna be fun! LOL

    It’s a shame that the Flare is starting to be more famous for its under performing battery than the slick unit it really is.

    Another great phone screwed by its battery.

    Must say it is becoming the signature fault of the CM brand. If the battery is removable anyway the modding community would be more than happy to solve this.

  5. darklord408 says:

    The price is just right. but don’t expect too much with the quad core A5 chips used on this device

    from wikipedia:

    It is intended to replace the ARM9 and ARM11 cores for use in low-end devices.[1] Compared to those older cores, the Cortex-A5 offers the advanced features of the ARM v7 architecture over the v4/v5 (ARM9) and v6 (ARM11) architectures e.g VFPv4 and NEON advanced SIMD. It also allows devices to run current software, which is increasingly focusing on ARM v7 and dropping support for earlier architectures.

    Basically the A5 chips are for entry level phones. Kinda weird and funny when somebody says that these A5 chips trumps the A15 Kraits and the A9 MPCores (Optimus G/Nexus 4, High/Med end Galaxy Lines). You get what you pay for ika nga

    there is no great phone created by ph ..
    cherry startmobile myphone etc..
    puro copya lang … mag bebenta ng mura pero low class and bullshit… bkt mo sasayangin pera mo sa mumurahing smartphone kung laging lowbat d maka laro ng aus d magamit ng aus pangit graphics ang bagal ang lag d ma aus camera at mababang internal memory…. at isa pa … mababang ram…

    bkt d ma isip ng mga ph brand ng smart phone na kung gusto nila makuha ang phone market ng ph.. gawa sila ng kasing ganda ng S3 note2 na android based.. magandang version ng UI at sarili nilang UI tulad ng samsung touchWiz… HTC HTC Sense etc.. etc… tapos presyohan nila ng mura pero mas maganda sa mga branded…

    heller… tapos mga tanga pa ung mga ibang tao..
    porket mura bibili .. feeling nila ang ganda at feeling nila naka mura sila….
    mga wla tlagang alam bili ng bili….
    sa mga PH smartphone brand.. wala kaung utak .. bobo sayang lang pera sa inyo.. buti pa ipunin nalang pera at umili ng high end phone. kesa sa basurang mga product nyo..

    sana may sumulpot na maaus na brand sa PH.
    ung gagawa ng murang gadget pero astig…
    hnd ung mura nga.. wala namang ka kwenta kwenta..

    • eduard says:

      Then don’t buy. Simple as that

    • Ikaw na! says:

      tanga nagmamarunong ka pa dyan e wala ka naman pangbili ng premium phone..kain ka na lang saging unggoy!
      btw kudos to Cherry Mobile!

    • Glenn V says:

      I’d rather be dumb (as you say ‘bobo’) than arrogant.

    • chacha says:

      Hello! Panalo pa rin yan!!!

      ano bng ginagawa ng branded na 6000 MAH na powerbank sa CDRking, LOL! kaya nga mabili powerbank sa kanila ngayon eh

    • David Z says:

      You expect too much.

    • XIAN says:

      hindi basura at hindi walang kwenta ang mga CM phones. i have an old cm C50 clamshell and its still fully funtioning. you call that basura?
      why would i buy high end phones which cost 3 THREE TIMES THE PRICE if all i do is call,text,skype and play moderate games.
      sayo nalang yang high end phone mo! hindi ko naman gamitin lahat ng features nyan

    • Tebats says:

      Putang ina mo ka dami mo nalalaman eh pulubi ka naman jan. Gumawa ka na lang ng sarili mo brand at benta mo kse ang galing galing mo eh!

  8. Darren philip says:

    Paanong walang kwenta? Naguguluhan po aq. Sa pagkakaalam ko po ay nagagawa rin ng mga cheap phone na to ang ilan sa nagagawa ng mga mamahaling phone. Ay. Baka masabihan akong walang alam. Tapos baka matanga pa ako.

    • Focker says:

      Di ka tanga at lalong di naman walang alam. Mas tanga pa nga sayo yung iba dyan na nagmamarunong, wala naman talagan alam.

  9. paolo says:

    CM should have used the MediaTek MT6589 chip, better architecture and graphics chip (1.2GHZx4 Cortex-A7 + PowerVR Series5XT GPU) as the new Indian HD quad-core phones are using (Mircomax A116 Canvas HD, probably MyPhone will adopt this, since MyPhone = Micromax with OEM’s) against the Snapdragon MSM8225Q (1.2GHZx4 Cortex-A5 + Adreno 203) in this thing.

    Inefficient ang mga Cortex-A5 ng Qualcomm VS sa mga MediaTek Cortex-A7 (My cousin’s MyPhone A848 has better battery performance than a friend’s CM Flare.) :(

  10. jasper says:

    puro raklamo.. hindi ba uso suportahan ang sariling atin? kaya di umaasenso ang bansa natin dahil sa mga taong may mentalidad na katulad mo. God bless the Philippines

    • ToJasper says:

      “suportahan ang sariling atin?”

      Rebranded nga sya eh. Nde sya made in the Philippines. Malinaw?

      Mejo wala kasi sa lugar yung patriotism mo eh.

  11. Ben says:

    kayo nalang gumawa ng sarili nyong smartphone.. may pa A52x pa kayong nalalaman. eh di gumawa kayo ng smartphone nyo yung gusto niyong specs para makontento na ang mga isip niyong high standards.

  12. edz says:

    heto na naman pruo reklamo puro reklamo reklamo reklamo reklamo reklamo reklamo reklamo, …….??? wala wala wala….

  13. Paul Tan says:

    live and let live!
    Pagbibili, e d bumili! Pag away, d wag!

    Peace out mga dudzz! ;-)

  14. darren philip says:

    haha… would you buy a samsung galaxy ace which is 7490 or would you buy this at 6990? /gg

  15. XIAN says:

    ano ba sinasabi ng isang nag comment dito, just because bumili kami ng murang smartphone, ang tanga na namin. wala kaming alam, bili lang ng bili? bili ka nga ng mga mamahaling high end smartphone na quad core, are you sure magamit mo lahat ng features nyan? i doubt.

  16. Edwin C says:

    Simpli lang ang sagot. Kung kunti lang pera mo tapos gusto mo talaga makapag-smartphone bili ka nito. Kung mayaman ka katulad ng mga reklamador dito bili kayo ng nababagay sa mga pagmumukha nyong reklamador.

  17. niel says:

    4gb lng yung internal storage….mga 5 or 4 lng n magandang laro or HD games yung malalagay mo dyan….sayang…

    • tukmol says:

      bakit malalaro mo ba ng sabay sabay lahat ng HD games? baka nga sa 2D game na RPG di mo matapos agad, HD game pa. tsk.tsk.tsk.tsk!!!

  18. Choosy pa says:

    @niel: expandable mem sya. Para sa iba na naghahanap pa ng mas magandang specs or magandang piyesa, wag nman ganyan. D nyo b nkita mura na nga, tapos hahanapan na kagaya ng s3? Lol. Dti nga kuntento ng sa tag 11k na 3310 hahaha. I own a iphone5, SIII and a cm phone pro i salute local brands kc kaht papano nkakagawa cla ng way na kaht ganon lng piyesa nila at least they try to make product na mura pero can do the job gaya ng mamahalin ng brand… Kung sa tingin nyo mas may alam kyo e di try nyong gumawa sarili nyong cp hahaha

    • Choosy Fruit says:

      Eh di ikaw na mayaman. Pa iphone5 SIII at CM phone ka pa jan. Elitista! Burgis! Pakialam ko sa mga telepono mo? Naka prepaid ka sigurado, nakikisagap ng wifi sa kapitbahay at laging naghahanap ng wifi sa mall at coffee shops. Parang jejemon na tanga lang dahil call center agent ka may panggastos sa luho. Bakit may “Growth” ka ba sa trabaho mo? Sumusweldo ka lang, wala ka naman natututunan.

    • dsfsdfsdf says:

      @niel: lahat ng trabaho may growth nasa tao na yan kung panu nya ihahandle yung work nya. At sobrang babaw naman ng isip mo, porket ba sinabi nya yung mga ginagamit nyang phone eh mayabang na sya? yung ugali mo parang skwater, walang breeding.lol

    • Heto lng masasabi ko @choosy putang ina kang hayop ka. Wag sana bumagsak sa call center ung mga anak mo o magiging anak mo kasi putagris ka kung makapanlait ng trabaho. At panalangin mo makapagtapos mga anak mo para d sila bumagsak sa call center. Putapete!

  19. tukmol says:

    @Choosy Fruit, burat ka pla eh, wag mo dadamay ang trabaho ng mga tao dito, bobo ka pla eh, walang kinalaman yan, in the first place baka nga tax p lng ng call center agent eh isang buwang sweldo muna. may growth k nga, nganga k nmn, oh baka isa ka sa nga frustrated na hindi natanggap sa call center kaya ang bitter mo. tsk.tsk.tsk.

  20. chacha says:

    Kudos to CM! Support Local brands na lng para mas quality at highend specs ang madala dito, suportahan nyo na lng, hawag puro reklamo, kayo kaya magimport nyan?

    Look at the Big Picture!!! Dati reklamo kayo dahil 512MB lng memory at mababa processor, ngayon nandyan na 1GB RAM at Quad core na speeds, affordable pa. Be thankful na lng at supportahan kapwa nyo Pinoy para umunlad tayo.

  21. BATAS says:

    MGA PUTANGINA NYONG LAHAT !!

  22. Manong says:

    screen palang di na IPS

  23. abong says:

    as long na pwede ka makatawag at makapag txt sa 1 cp ay ok na un, bakit dati naman nagtitiis lang tayo sa nokia 3210 or 3310 ah.

  24. darthvader says:

    Ganyan talaga ang buahy, may bida at kontra-bida! basta ako, bibili nito…

    Subukan mo akong kontrahin… ipa-palunok ko itong cherry sayo…

  25. Marku says:

    Sa mga ubod ng yaman at lupet ng consciousness sa quality:

    Kung pwd nmng palang gumawa ng high quality at mamahaling phone, eh d sana yun ang ginawa nila. Talino nyo po kasi. Malamang hindi superb at mura lang eh kasi ang target nila ay yung mga taong may budget constraint. Kayo na kaya magbenta ng kasing ganda ng s3 pero mura. Kayo na magnegosyo.

  26. Epal Lungs says:

    Duh. This phone is designed for the budget conscious and those who cannot afford high end phones from Sony, Apple et al. Pang-masa po ang target. I think it’s already a good phone for the price. Good specs at a very low price is something that is hard to find. Although the build quality is questionable, consumers who wanted a feature phone without paying a hefty price tag will find this phone a good buy.

  27. Yuu says:

    ..fine for budget conscious..ung fone.. but…
    ..anoh ba main purpose bkit k bbli ng quad core..fone if
    hndi moh nman ma-maximize ang paggamit.. kng hndi

    • sinister says:

      actually tama si yuu. sa halagang 7k. mag hanap nalang po kayo ng 2nd hand na branded phones na ma maximize niyo ung features. kesa dito na laging lag. pa pogi lang phone mo. android nga. eh parang basic phone lang ung function. e bumili ka nalang ng basic phone na 999php. gamitin naman niyo mga utak pre.

      @ anon: pre nag babasa ka ba? di naman jejemon mag salita si yuu

      @ tebats: tama naman si yuu. aminin mo lang wala kang alam hehe bopols

  28. nagmamarunonglahat says:

    andaming nagmamarunong hehe.
    simple lang po. magbasa lang ng konti sa web.
    rebranded ‘to. made in india.
    binibili ng cherry mobile pati yung right na ma-rebrand.
    pag meron na tayong sariling atin. tsaka nyo na sabihing tangkilikin ang sariling atin.

    what’s good about this?
    “mura”
    cherry mobile is bringin’ chinese and indian phones and tablets here. which is actually good para sa masa.

    hindi kayang gumawa ng pinas sa ngayon eh. so ok na yan.

    but don’t expect too much.
    this is a quad-core cortex a5 based cpu.
    entry level.
    an exynos 4 cortex a9 dual-core chip will outperform this.

    ok pa din. i saw the benchmarks.
    nakakalungkot lang talaga eh yung battery.
    sana ginawa man lang nilang 1800mAh para talagang masabing “shut up and take my money”.
