  1. I'd still go for MyPhone kahit sobrang baba ng presyo ng Flare... I'd always go for quality than price... hindi maiiwasan na kahit anong ingat natin sa mga cellphone natin minsan by accident nababagsak, nahuhulog, naiipit, over-charge, etc.. dito nagkakatalo ang Myphone at CherryMobile. Matibay talaga ang Myphone compared sa CherryMobile.

    Para sa akin po Depende po sa nagamit ng phone ang itatagal nito... Pero vote po ako sa Flare... Bumawi po sila sa mga Android Phones nila... Dati sinasabi ko na mahina ang brad ng cherry mobile... pero ngayon proud na ako sa mga products nila... Pati may mga compatible batteries sila na ka match ng samsung battery... Yung iba kasi kaya ibinabalik agad yung mga CP nila sa shop kasi kung ano ano ang kinakalikot na mga ROOT... eh hindi naman maalam yung iba... try lang ng try... Wag na po tau mag away dahil lang sa pagkukumpara ng Specs or ng Brand...

  3. Myphone is better than cherry in terms of warranty, I believe MyPhone is under the same people of SONY Ph or something like that... but I checked the MacAddress used by MyPhone and it's under SHENZHEN TECHNOLOGY CO, LTD

  4. Hahaha... Funny!!! No Offense...

  5. you're so dumbass as you can see or search by your self the chipset and the processor of the cm flare, i will tell you na nga, ung qualcomm snapdragon processor ginagamit din ng htc brand, pati gpu ng flare na adreno ginagamit ng htc brand! we know that the brand cherry M is not so durable but maybe this time bumabawi sila sa android phones nila! baka kasi ikaw ang nabili mo sa kanila ay ung mga phone na lowtech ung may tv, iba po tong flare malayo sa specs ng low tech phone ng cherry mobile. no offence

  6. if you want your phone to last long, anyone knows myphone is trusted quality!!

  7. 1UP para sayo dre... paki sagot lang anong brand ng phone ang hindi gawa sa china? hahahaha

  8. Everyone here is entitled to express their opinions freely, but of course, minus the cuss. For a budget fixed at 4k, no choice tayo kundi piliin ang CM Flare. Kung maalaga lang tayo sa mga gamit natin, magtatagal yan! With the help of jelly cases or special covers para sa fone, bababa ang possibility na masisira yan. All CMs and MPs are made from china. Yes, mga rebranded nga po sila galing india, pero i read in one article from an indian netizen na pati product nila, rebranded din galing china. LAHAT CHINA. So, kung ganun po ang tingin niyo sa china fones na kailangan pag-ingatan, edi dapat pag-ingatan. Im not lying..bakit??

    You think AMALAYER?! HA?! AMALAYER?!!

  9. mas matibay pa rin talaga ang myphone, napatunayan ko na. Yung CM ang bilis malowbat while MP mas long life ang battery. 2 years na sakin tong myphone na gamit ko. Pwede pa magfacebook anytime basta globe gamit mo SIM. hehe! MP the best. :D
