Alvin Mendoza said...

Adrian said...

Yup, that's true. I already included the usable RAM and internal memory in the specs above.

Marami kasi yung ngtatanong kng bakit nd buo yung specs sa unit nila.

Adrian Kimozave said...

4gb internal memory, 2gb is allotted for the Android OS. 2gb is available for the user. 512mb Ram-380 for the apps. The remaining is used by the GPU.tsk tsk. Cherry Mobile is not ripping you off.

Adrian said...

Ganyan nmn po palagi yung CM iba yung specs sa box sa unit nila

Adrian said...

Thanks for info :)

Adrian Kimozave said...

2 point multi touch is appropriate for pinch to zoom. How many fingers do you plan on touching it with? :-)

chan said...

pls need reply agad hihi.. meron ba neto sa bacolod?.. kung meron saan po?..

lanz said...

i bought this phone just today.. while browsing it i noticed that it only has 2g internal mem. not 4g.. and tried to edit one picture but it says" memory is not enough. picture cannot be saved".. i also tried it to other photos and the result is just the same..

Jeppy said...

yeah, okay na sya ngayon, rooted na and after some modifications, :) thanks.

Guest said...

Yeah I've try it and it works, thanks, hindi na sya masyadong lag ngayon. pero hindi tama yung specs na nakalagay sa box nya. :)

Adrian said...

Try mu po yung rooting sa Flare same processor lng kasi cla.

Jeppy said...

HI, i bought this yesterday and as i install some applications my phone lags a lot, i installed different launcher that is very light on ram but it doesnt help. hindi 512 yung ram 300+mb lang, hindi IPS, hindi rin gumagana yung autofocus, im just hoping that there is a way how to root this phone maybe that could help.

pats said...

Abdulmohsin Omar said...

Jeppy said...

hmm ganyan din sakin nung kabibili, smooth na smooth pa nga eh, pero nung nalagyan na ng mga apps, dun na sya naglalag na sobra, then nung naroot ko na install ng seeder then some tweaks, okay na sya, bihira na sya mag lag. pero sa kasamaang palad, naapakan ko yung cp ko (iniwan pala ng kapatid ko sa tsinelas ko. ewan ko bakit dun iniwan) hayun, minsan minsan kulay pula lahat ng screen ko, then mejo lag sya ulit. :( haay..

Simple message po for all na maraming reklamo about this cheap android phones. "BUY A MORE EXPENSIVE ANDROID PHONE!!" If you are looking for S3 or iPhone quality cellphone you need to spend more than 10k. So wag na kayong umangal sa functionality nyan.

Major issues:

Lag tips

*Transfer installed apps to external SD

*Use static wallpapers (in my case I used a plain black background and my phone works like a charm)

*Do not install apps that you will not use

*Disable apps that are not always being used (in my case I disabled viber, cherry apps and alike)

*Use Advanced Task Killer to close running apps that you are not using

*Lessen your active widgets

Battery tips

*Always close connections that are not being used (Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, Data)

*Use Easy Battery Saver

*Put brightness settings to the minimum

*If hindi naman kayo maarte sa sounds ng phone, better if set it to silent mode without vibrations.

*turn off keystroke sounds, vibration, and set your phone sleep time to the shortest time.

*Lessen your active widgets

*For newly purchased phones do not forget to do the battery activation where in after buying the phone you need to drain the battery then charge it for 6-8 hours to utilize the whole capacity of your batter. If hindi nyo po kasi nagawa ito usually battery life will really suck and sobrang bilis nyang maubos. As for me I did this mga 3 times sa phone ko and my battery lasts for 1 full day of heavy use and 1 1/2 - 2 days of regular use with the battery saver app.

Other issues:

Sound

*Look for a headphone with a good bass quality since sa bass lang talaga panget ang sounds ng Burst.

*If you know how to change the bit rate of your sounds, convert it to higher bit rate para mas ok ang quality ng sounds nyo. it will take up space pero it will make sound quality better.

*For video sounds, same as for music the higher the bit rate the better.

Heat

*It's typical for a dual core processor to heat up since there are 2 processor working at the same time so please don't compare it to a single core processor phone na hindi umiinit.

*another thing, keep your phone away from heat sources kasi it adds to the incured heat of your phone. It can damage sensitive parts within your phone.

Screen

*Responsiveness of the screen usually can be attributed to Lag. So if the screen is not responding the phone is in "Lag mode" :))

*To reduce glare magpalagay kayo ng matte screen protector.

So basically these are the issues na nadaanan ko sa CM Burst ko. All in all for 4,000 pesos I couldn't as for more. I guess you are getting your money's worth basta wag nyo nalang ibabagsak or ibabalibag ang phone nyo if naglalag siya. If you have a lot of problems or issues with the phone then maybe you can let go of it and look for another phone. Pero for me I'm happy with my phone. For those people na nakikiride lang sa mga Haters ng cheap android phone you are so stupid to complain with a 4,000 peso phone with this features and besides mabuti pa nga yung ibang tao may capabilit bumili ng 4,000 peso na phone eh kayo nga baka nakikitext lang kayo eh. Nga pala, I also love the form factor, sleek and simple.

BTW, for those people who will say that ito lang ang kaya kong iafford kaya I am giving good reviews and tips are morons. I have all the iphone series and I just wanted to try out the phone. Hindi sayang ang pera sa Burst sobra sobra na nga features nya for 4,000.

The Gadget you have is only as powerful as the one wielding and using it! So yung mga nagmamarunong pero engot naman, kaya pala engot ang phone nyo mana lang sa may-ari!

Peace Out guys and I hope this helps the Burst users na mababait jan.

nationwide na ba to may ganito ba to sa iloilo.?

Adrian said...

Meron na po ito sa Iloilo (Gaisano and Robinson)

KIRBreezy said...

panget ng SOUNDS pag naka HEADSET, kahit magandang earphone na gamitin panget pa din

andy said...

bakit umiinit agad kapag nag bobrowse? at ang bilis lang ng battery

Adrian said...

Ganyan nmn po mga smartphone umiinit kapag ginagamit ng matagal at mabilis po ito kasi maliit lng ung battery capacity nito.

RL said...

Bakit 2MB lang yun Internal Memory niya?
