Cherry Mobile Flame vs. Cherry Mobile Flare: Specs Fight!




Cherry Mobile has finally launched its newest Android Phone with a 4.5-inch qHD IPS display called Cherry Mobile Flame, while the Cherry Mobile Flare also known as the "Dual Core ng Bayan," is the first ever dual-core Android ICS smartphone in the market with an unbelievably low price of Php3,999 only. The CM Flare was launched during Cherry Mobile's Flare Up event at One Esplanade last month. With that a lot of people are asking which is better between the two? So, aside from their looks, can you really tell the difference between the two? If not, let’s look at their specs side-by-side after the jump.

If you can see both the Cherry Mobile Flame and the Cherry Mobile Flare have the same processor, RAM, internal storage and GPU that can play Angry Birds, Bad Piggies, Temple Run and is compatible with Adobe Flash, but the Cherry Mobile Flame edges the Cherry Mobile Flare with its qHD (960 x 540 pixels) display and its 1,800mAh battery, while the Cherry Mobile Flare only edges the Cherry Mobile Flame with its unbelievably low price of just Php3,999 only!

Now, which phone wins the fight?

Update: According to AnTuTu Benchmark v3.0.3, the processor of the Cherry Mobile Flame is a Qualcomm MSM8625 Snapdragon S4 and not MSM8225. The phone also comes with VGA front camera according to specs found at the back of the retail box.

If you own one of this phone, please share some of your experiences and opinions about this phone, so that others may be aware of it. Thanks!

Have seen something wrong that you should correct. In the side of FLAME, you have written 'Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich' while in the side of FLARE, you have written 'Android 4.0.4 Gingerbread'. Please correct. Thanks! :)

Glenn Paul Torres said...

Rigel Vargas said...

I really love my myPhone a818! even if it was used by my brother and have just to give it to me because he has a Blackberry now. My brother also plans to buy this Gadget (CM FLARE) because of the quality and specs!

Although he finds it slow (the myphone a818 not a848i) and has no 3g function only 2g, he was thankful that he had that such wonderful phone like that and recommends it for me as a starters phone for android users. :D

GadgetMeister said...

I'm using Karbonn A21. medyo mahal pero sulit. Halos parehong pareho sila ng Flame. Ang defference: Mas malinawa ang camera images ng karbonn at mas malinaw ang screen. I made sure na same ang settings before i compare. Sometimes it pays more to get the real value. Sa bibili ng Flare...mag Flame na lang kayo. TY

Adrian said...

Nd po 5MP lng po ito.

Ito po yung retail box at antutu benchmark, 5MP po yung nkalagay doon.

xtine said...

dba 8MP yung flame?

emilioaquino said...

CM, MP, StarMobile, Torque, etc. sino kaya sa kanila ang unang maglalabas ng windows os? kahit yung 7.5 lang para naman maiba puro ng android cell ko e

Angennette Pendon Calma said...

cola said...
