Cherry Mobile Flare J2

  • None so far

MyPhone my85 DTV


  • Bigger battery
  • DTV tuner

Both of the two are decent budget smartphones from different makers. Obviously, the my85 has the edge over the Flare J2 thanks to its digital TV (DTV) tuner onboard. Apart from the, the bigger battery capacity is also a plus to keep things running longer.

The handsets are very similar in other specs like processor, memory, storage, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The two are priced the same for Php 2,999. We guess it’s just a matter of preference now which one is better, but the DTV tuner is really tempting to have especially when you commute for long hours every day.
