Cherry Mobile Flare S: S for Success?

Yuletide season is here... I remember it was by this time last year Cherry Mobile gain ground in mobile industry with introduction of its most popular handset, Flare. After that few months, Flare 2.0 came bringing quad core to the masses then Flare 2X with 1GB of RAM... Now here comes Flare S...

The Flare S runs Android 4.2 Jellybean on a 4 inch IPS Display bringing you that buttery goodness with just a enough screen space. The device houses a new procssor by Mediatek MT6582 A7 processor which is designed for value but packs a punch coupled with a Mali-400 MP2 GPU that will surely handle intensive gaming. With a gig of RAM switching from one app to the other or to say multitasking is a breeze. You will just have 4GB of phone storage but it does have MicroSD slot for added storage support. So far so good when in comes to internals.

With regards its optics, it packs 8MP Rear Camera supported with Flash and a VGA Front. Usual connectivity from WiFi/Bluetooth/GPS and HSPA and standards sensors.

However still this model is haunted by Flare line major flaw... its battery is only 1400 mah. Dont get me wrong its does have A7 processor that is energy efficient but as it is survey conducted is US, UK and UAE says battery is major gripe for mobile phone user. Hope modders will find a way to solve this.

Cherry Mobile Flare S is a great contender to follow through the success of Flare considering hardware and price at only PHP 4,499.00 it is surely worth your money.

Dont you worry running out of juice with G PRO Lite cause it has retain the flagship's battery pack at 3140mAh. More importantly stylus is here to stay for the PRO executive feel.

Kudos to LG for bringing out G PRO in Lite variant to say just another alternative product out in the marketplace.
