Specs Comparison: Cherry Mobile Flare XL Plus vs Cloudfone Excite Prime

Cherry Mobile’s new handset to hit their shelves, the Flare XL Plus, seems to be in familiar place of budget 5.5-inchers. It even reminded us of the CloudFone Excite Prime which was released last January. What’s different and common about the two? Here’s our quick specs comparison.



As you can see from the table above, there’s not much of a difference between. Both have the same CPU, sensors, and software version. What sets them apart is battery capacity. For some good reason, CloudFone Excite Prime offers a larger capacity at 2,820mAh versus the 2300mAh of the Cherry Mobile Flare XL Plus.

Another difference between the two would be the overall design of the phone. ClouFone’s handset is more angular than Cherry Mobile’s, so deciding on that aspect would be a matter of personal preference. Also, the front-facing camera of the Flare XL Plus has more pixel count at 8-megapixels over 5-megapixel of Excite Prime.

Pricing-wise, just like their specifications, both are sold for just Php3,999. If you’re looking for a budget phablet at 5.5-inches, you can choose between these two phones but on paper, the Excite Prime gets the edge with its bigger battery. Either way, you’re not getting LTE connection with the two which is a bit of disappointment for 2016.

Update 04/19: Corrected CloudFone’s front-facing camera to 5-megapixels.

    Both has no dedicated physical or capacitive buttons for home/ back etc. On screen nav keys makes the viewable screen smaller on some cases. Wala bang review kahit na benchmarks lang?
