If you can see both the Cherry Mobile Thunder and the Cherry Mobile Flame have the same 4.5-inch display, RAM, internal storage and both have GPU's that can play Angry Birds, Bad Piggies, Temple Run and is compatible with Adobe Flash, but the Cherry Mobile Flame edges the Cherry Mobile Thunder with its superior 4.5-inch qHD IPS display (giving it a wide viewing angle, fast response speed and a simple pixel structured), 245ppi (for better viewing) and its tri-band GSM connectivity, while the Cherry Mobile Thunder only edges the Cherry Mobile Flame with its cheaper price tag!

Now, which phone wins the fight?

- 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.
- The MediaTek MT6577 is faster than the Qualcomm MSM8225 S4. The MT6577 is a dual-core Cortex A9 while the MSM8225 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.

  1. The Flame does NOT have an IPS display. The viewing angles are quite narrow. Overally it's a great phone though, I can hardly believe how cheap the price is.
