The wide range of mobile phones in the market can be quite intimidating for non-techie shoppers. Oftentimes, it is much easier to just go for the pricier and known brands than search for more practical options. However, I discovered that opening up my options to reputable local tech brands can lead me to great gadget deals as well. My recent visit to Lazada got me eyeing a tablet and two smart phones from Cherry Mobile, one of the leading tech brands in the country.
Cherry Mobile is the first brand that sold dual SIM phone models in the Philippines. They are quite popular with kids, teens, and the young crowd because of their colorful and fun phone designs and affordable rates. But their phone models have kept with the trends and even expanded to accommodate more sophisticated tastes and needs. They even have tablets and smart phones with the latest Android platforms around. Here are three of my picks in the current Cherry Mobile models.
Cherry Mobile Flare. This smart phone is equipped with a 5MP back camera, VGA front camera, 1.2GHz Dual Core Snapdragon, Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and 4GB internal memory.
Cherry Mobile Skyfire. The dual SIM capacity of this phone holds true to the Cherry Mobile legacy of dual band phones. It also features a 4.7 capacitive touch panel, 1 GHz Dual core processor, Android 4.0 ice cream sandwich, WiFi, 3G, GPS, Bluetooth, 5MP back camera, VGA front camera, and 4GB internal memory.
Cherry Mobile Fusion Bolt Tablet. This gadget has a 7”HD IPS display, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, 1GHz quad-core Actions Semiconductor ATM7029 processors, 1GB RAM, WiFi ready, 2MP rear camera, VGA front camera, Vivante GC1000, GPU, Super HD 2160p, and 8GB internal storage.
