If you can see both the Cherry Mobile Flare and the MyPhone A898 Duo have the same RAM, internal storage, both have GPU's that can play Angry Birds, Bad Piggies, Temple Run and is compatible with Adobe Flash, but the Cherry Mobile Flare edges the MyPhone A898 Duo with its 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor (1GHz for the CM W500 Titan) and its unbelievably low price of Php3,999 only (The CM Flare is Php3,500 cheaper than the MyPhone A898 Duo), while the MyPhone A898 Duo boasts a large 4.3-inch display, 720p HD video recording, TV-Out and USB-OTG support and its large 1,800mAh battery.

Update: The MediaTek MT6577 is faster than the Qualcomm MSM8625 S4. The MT6577 is a dual-core Cortex A9 while the MSM8625 S4 is a dual-core Cortex A5. The A5 is more efficient, but peak performance the A9 beats it handily. However, it the speed difference is pretty negligible for general usage. It'll only be apparent in benchmarks and games.
