Review: Cherry Mobile Flare

23 January 2013

I finally got to sit around and work on this review after getting acquainted with my Cherry Mobile Flare and tinkering with it ever since I got it three weeks ago. As I said, I wasn't really planning on getting a new phone as I was trying to decide between getting a Kindle or a camera, but after seeing my friend's Cherry Mobile Flame and getting impressed with all the positive reviews this phone has gotten upon release, I gave in and replaced my HTC ChaCha and SMART Netphone.

The box contains the unit, a charger with USB cord, standard headset, and a manual.
First off, the specs as printed on the back of the box:
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
  • MSM8225 1.2 GHz Dual Core S4
  • 4" Capacitive Touch Panel
  • ROM: 4GB/ RAM: 512MB
  • Expandable microSD up to 32GB
  • GSM/ GPRS/ EDGE 900/1800/1900 | UMTS 2100
  • Wi-Fi b/g/n | Bluetooth 2.1
  • 3.5mm Stereo Audio Jack | Standard micro USB 2.0
  • 5MP Back Camera | VGA Front Camera
Before I go on, I would like to tell you that I bought this for only P3,999. My friend said that it's just the introductory price though and it now costs more than P4,000. All those great features for that price? I'd say it's such a big steal that other people can be forgiven for thinking it's too good to be true! How can Cherry Mobile sell this phone for that price when they can sell it for much higher considering that its specs can compete with [and sometimes, be even better than] more expensive models from other brands? I honestly don't know. I'm just glad that I did not shell out more money for another phone that basically has the same features as this.

Now, for what I liked:

The Flare already comes covered with a screen protector, which was a nice surprise since I don't have to go to other gadget shops and pay separately for it. It is also thin and light, plus the size is perfect for my hands. 


Cherry Mobile also sells different-colored cases for when you get bored of the standard black back cover that comes with the phone. On the photo is my light pink-colored cover and my long nails that I have already trimmed since.

I also got Apple Green. I love the bright color!
Thanks to its Dual Core processor, all apps are fast and zippy! My SMART Netphone used to irk me before because it always force closes whenever I try to use the Kindle app for Android (partly my fault because I loaded it with too many eBooks, but whatever), and now I am so glad that I don't experience it anymore!

Just four of the hundreds of eBooks in my Kindle library
Of course, I also love that it runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich because it lets me enjoy more enhancements and a more refined interface. My previous two phones both run on Android Froyo so this is a huge improvement. Here is a screenshot of how I arranged my apps, using GO Launcher EX.



As you can see, I sorted my downloaded apps into different folders depending on their use, making the app deck more organized. I should do a "My Favorite Apps" post soon. (EDIT: I listed all my favorite apps here.)

My wallpaper and home page arrangement depending on the color of the back cover I'm using for the day:

My favorite wallpaper and clock + widgets for the apple green case.
My favorite wallpaper and clock + widgets for the pink case.
I miss the old Britney Spears.
Oh, I forgot to mention, this phone is also Dual SIM and both can run (send and receive messages) at the same time without needing to switch between the two! This feature is perfect for those who have personal and business phones since it lessens the need to bring two gadgets all the time. Just make sure you have an extra battery pack or a power bank with you anywhere you go ;) For me though, since I only have one personal SMART number (I had my Globe line disconnected already), the other SIM slot remains unused. We were all given a Samsung Galaxy Chat (costs P7,000 - P8,000 in the market but the specs are inferior to the Flare) with unlimited data plan as our office phone, and I love it because I can use it as a WiFi hotspot anytime.

Here is a screenshot of the messaging screen. You can see that Send2 cannot be selected because I did not put a SIM card on the second slot.


The front and back cameras are also pretty decent considering the price and its 5MP capability. Here are some sample images, please note that there was no editing or post-processing done unless stated otherwise:

The first photo I've taken with it: Valentine donuts from Go Nuts Donuts!
View from the 9th floor of Lepanto building 
Some of my favorite stamps 
Photo taken indoors under low light, with flash.
I really like the bokeh effect on my earring captured here.
Here is a sample photo taken with the front camera while my friend and I were inside a shopping mall.


Now I want to show you some photos I post-processed/ Instagrammed.

Using PicSay Pro
Outsmark ladies Kira and me, so fancy
I really, really, really like how this photo of my Accutones turned out.
Now for the things I didn't like:

The bottom left corner of the back cover creaks a bit like it's loose. It's negligible and doesn't really pose a problem, but if you're hardcore OC then you might not like it. I've since found out though that it doesn't happen when I use my apple green cover, so maybe it would be best if you can check the covers first before purchasing.

I've encountered two "Can't connect to the camera" error messages when I tried to take a photo after installing DECO Puri. I restarted the phone in both instances and never got the problem again, so maybe it's just a bug or minor glitch.

There is no FM Radio included. If yours didn't come with a free radio, you can go to any Cherry Mobile Service Center to get your phone updated. I tried to go but the line was soooo long (Cherry Mobile is getting a lot popular these days, I say) so I gave up and window-shopped instead.

I did not include battery life anymore since the need to charge every few hours is encountered by everyone from the smartphone-using population. The battery can survive the whole day during lazy weekends spent bumming around the house with the phone on standby, but on busy days I charge it twice: in the morning and in the afternoon. 

All in all, the Cherry Mobile Flare is a great phone that packs a LOT of punch in such a thin, nifty, and inexpensive gadget. I would gladly recommend it to everyone! I would also be updating this post with new discoveries from time to time (especially if I encounter any problems), so watch out for those. ;)

I've heard that this phone is always out of stock because of the demand. I actually got it from Lazada (stocks run out within a day of them announcing they've restocked so you might want to check their site regularly) because I am a diva who doesn't want to line up for gadgets LOL. Do tell me if you have this phone, too!

EDIT: I am not affiliated with Cherry Mobile in any way so if you have problems with the company, please bring it up to them directly.
For any questions about the unit and how to troubleshoot some problems with the device, please read the comments first because they might have already been answered by other people already.
I wrote about my favorite Android apps here.

Cheap! And pink case! #tempted 

JennyAustria said...

gusto ko talga nito.4+++ na to ngayon XD lage ourt of stock!

Mimai said...

It is my favorite phone now too! :D I like to get the yellow, lime and white back cases! Haha! Hi Zippy, meet Zephyr! ^__^

Mrs. A to Z.♥ said...

ooooh parang i like!! kaso i just got my htc cha cha hehe. kahinayang. but at the same time, tempting toh!

Maggie said...

Lovin' your new phone! Kaya pala medyo sikat ang cherry mobile. Sayang more than Php 4000 na price niya. :)

krissy said...

The cases cost P250 each lang! I want to buy more and glue decals on ;D

krissy said...

Ah yeah, my friend told me nga na P3,999 is just the introductory price. Check Lazada, hopefully they'll restock soon :)

krissy said...

^_^

krissy said...

It has 5MP camera (same as the HTC ChaCha) but the photo quality is much better when I compared them, I don't know why XD

krissy said...

Still pretty cheap considering the specs, though ;)

Gen said...

I bought mine a couple of weeks ago. It's my first smartphone and I love it. A colleague of mine kinda laughed at it because it's a Cherry Mobile phone, but I don't care. My 4k+ phone can do everything his 30k+ phone can! And if something happens to my phone, at least hindi sobrang nakakahinayang.

krissy said...

Phone sisters, high-five! 

Well that was a little rude of him to be honest, but don't mind him. I've actually used smartphones more expensive than this but the Flare trumps them all when it comes to the specs. And yeah, knocking on wood now, but in the event we lose it or it gets stolen at least the price is a lot cheaper.

Roma said...

 Now I know why my mama is raving about this new Cherry mobile. Hehe. I'm looking forward to the updates and discoveries about this phone :)

Dodz_inlove said...

aw more than 4k na talaga? :( Nvm, I will still go to Cherry Mobile store and check it for myself! Really want to have this one! Thanks your review was very helpful! :)

Tasha D. said...

Does the flare come with a white facade or black lang tapos with different back covers?

krissy said...

I've been using it for almost a month now, no problems so far :) Hope it stays that way!

krissy said...

I'm not sure if the price has already increased, but check Lazada every once in a while kasi sometimes they do promos :) A couple of weeks ago they had a promo bundle of Cherry Mobile Flare + microSD + power bank for only P4,999 :)

krissy said...

Black lang and then you have to buy the back covers separately if you want other colors. I got mine from Fone Twist in SM North EDSA for P250 each :)

Cheng said...

hi ms.krissy! san ka nakakabili ng mga back covers?
thanks for sharing your experience with cm flare :) lalo ko tuloy gusto nito! 

krissy said...

They're available in Cherry Mobile outlets as well, but I got mine from Fone Twist in SM North for P250 each. They also have jelly cases but I didn't buy hehe. Thanks, glad you liked my post! :)

Tasha D. said...

Saan ka po nakakabili ng ear plugs? I'm thinking kasi of getting this or the BB Curve eh. I have my ipod touch 5th gen kasi so kung tutuusin di ko na kailangan ng android since i have an iOS na naman. Worry ko lang baka di ko masyado feel yung flare kasi nasanay na ako sa quality ng apple. Very responsive din ba yung screen tsaka madaling lang po ba magtype dun sa qwerty keypad?  Sa ipod touch kasi talagang responsive even with the lightest touch. Tsaka if ever I get this, di ko naman balak sya gamitin as a gaming device. As in phone lang talaga and web browsing. 

Tasha D. said...

Follow up po! Do you know any shop that offers carbon stickers for the flare? I want to have a sticker on its back kasi instead of getting a case if ever I decide to get this over the BB eh.

krissy said...

I got my Ninja earphone plug from Hobby Depot. As for the keyboard, I've been using it as my personal phone for almost a month now and I've never had any problems with its responsiveness naman. :)

Christina Fermin ❀ said...

Hi, just wanted to know clear ba yung front camera and can you use it to take photos? Thanks! :)

krissy said...

Hi! The front camera can be used to take photos. I updated the post with a sample photo for you :)

Electrotest Light said...

Compatible pala ang Cherry Mobile Flare sa 2,200MAH LG P970 OPTIMUS BLACK BATTERY (VIDEO)

Mrjessrs said...

Thanks for the review. On my way now to Chery Mobile store to get my Flare. Why buy a very expensive Samsung or Iphone, when this Flare can do ALL the apps these expensive phones can do. In fairness, Cherry Mobile quality is improving ha. We need to be practical nowadays... huwag puro porma.

marie.jane.rosell said...

Thanks for the very informative review. :) I am in a hunt of a smart phone because of the ebooks. I also wanted to collect them since they are cheaper than books. :D I'll be getting one very soon. Ayoko na yung Samsung S3350. :D

krissy said...

You're welcome :)

krissy said...

You're welcome, glad you liked it :)

jHaMeZ M. said...

Hi Krissy, thanks for the review. I have this phone and I'm very satisfied with it. I solved the problem on the creaky cover by putting 2 thin papers inside the back cover, or you could just get one of those jelly cases =)

krissy said...

Wow, thanks for the suggestion! I'll try the paper thing because I don't have a jelly case yet :)

krissy said...

Chamz Chamen said...

I love my Cherry Mobile Flare but I don't like when my battery gets weak before the day ends. I also charged my phone twice. In the morning and in the evening, maybe it's because of its features. lol nevertheless, I cherish my Flare. Thanks for sharing your review dear! :)

andrew baler said...

Mia Vitug said...

Nice phone! Nice review! Nice blog! :D More power!

andrew baler said...

Rae said...

What app do you use to take screen caps?

Ericcollantes said...

Does it support skype app? Tnx

krissy said...

I'm not sure because I don't experience the same problem. You might want to go to the Service Center to have it checked :)

krissy said...

Thank you, glad you liked my review :)

krissy said...

Thanks, glad you liked my review :)

krissy said...

You can download apps from the Play Store using your laptop or computer but it will only be installed to your phone once you connect via data or WiFi.

krissy said...

It's a problem commonly experienced by all smartphone users. I guess we really can't have too much of a good thing. :) Thanks, glad you liked my review!

krissy said...

There are lots of other colors, too. I'd like to buy more ha ha. Thanks, glad you liked my review :)

krissy said...

Thank you :)

krissy said...

I didn't experience any problems at all naman. And Lazada offers warranty so if the unit is defective you can have it replaced. :)

krissy said...

I don't use an app, I just hold the power and lower volume buttons down at the same time. :)

krissy said...

I don't use Skype personally but it is also compatible with the Flare.

I really love this phone..

Hi. Great review! I noticed that Instagram works on this phone. But does it also support Whatsapp, Viber and Skype (voice AND video calls)? If yes on Skype, how is the quality? Maraming salamat!

krissy said...

Hi! It supports Whatsapp, Viber and Skype but I can't tell the quality because I only use Whatsapp :)

Michaelmarjes said...

Good day! tumatagal ba ang battery ng CM flare?

Oh i see..thanks :)

Ms. Pink said...

Hi, can you rotate the screen when texting? Does it support landscape mode? Heard there are a few bugs on the flare, wasn't sure if that's an issue. If not, let me know if it supports landscape mode/screen rotation. Thank you!

I haven't tried, but from what I've read online, yes. I'm okay with ICS as is, though. :)

krissy said...

Yes, it supports landscape mode as well :)

Eydyey said...

 Yes, you can Upgrade it to Jellybean. I've tried it already, but I like ICS more.. =)

krissy said...

Thanks :)

ronjel perez said...

HI KRISSY!!! Can you please give me suggestion which "POWER SAVER - FREE" apps to download from playstore? Thanks! :)

ronjel perez said...

if you don't mind sending me messages via SMS regarding my concern, i would really appreciate that. I just need a friend to consult with about this phone, my phone. Thanks! :)

krissy said...

Hi, I didn't install any power saver apps in my phone because I read in a forum somewhere that they don't really save battery juice in the long run. :)

krissy said...

Maybe you can search Google for any concerns you may have? That's what I do, anyway. :)

Kobegregorio said...

hi pano po magscreenshot sa flare at mag arrange ng apps yun tulad ng ginawa nio?

krissy said...

Hi, I use the GO Launcher EX app to customize the layout and themes. You can screencap by holding down the Power and Volume Down buttons at the same time. :)

Muggleborn_lp said...

i was browsing the net for info for this phone, thanks. Now i have more reason to get this and replace my non-android corby 2.

krissy said...

Cool, thanks. Hope you enjoy it! I've been using it for more than two months and I haven't had any problems so far. :)

Ria said...

Hi! What app are you using for screenshots?

Ria said...

How much? Where to go for upgrade?

Jarrass_yle said...

nacoconect ba ito sa keyboard?

krissy said...

I don't use an app. You can screencap by holding down the Power and Volume Down buttons at the same time. :)

krissy said...

I honestly don't know. Please contact Cherry Mobile instead.

Jing Panganiban-M. said...

Hi, how's the voice clarity in calls? I've read in some reviews na mahina ang sound. How's your experience? Thanks.

Revo Oliva said...

hi krissy... ung flare ko biglang ng "camera not found" baka may idea ka kung pano maayos to... tnx...

krissy said...

You have to download an eBook reader app that reads your eBooks' file type.

krissy said...

Hi Jing! Mine's working perfectly naman, but my friend who got hers from Lazada as well had a different experience. Her phone's mic was not working so the person in the other line can't hear her. She returned her phone to Lazada and they gave her a different unit that's working fine now.

krissy said...

Just reboot :)

ncm said...

hi i see u know a lot about flare..can i ask what to do cause the messaging thread is not alternate..it is by group ..for recipient and the sender..can you help me fix this :)

krissy said...

Hi! Are you using the stock messaging app or third party apps like Go SMS Pro or Handcent SMS? I'm using just the stock messaging app and I've never experienced din naman. :(

Dee said...

Hi Flare users :) where can I download free themes? Help!

Vanessa Moraleda said...

Hello. NakaXP kana ba ng CAMERA ERROR - Can't Connect to the Camera. Kakabili ko lang kahapon for my sis. :) Thanks.

yhen said...

hi! ask ko lang panu alisin ung vibration kapag nagtetext? thanks! :)

eulapot said...

try settings >> sound >> uncheck "viibrate on touch" :)

eulapot said...

usually i just turn off the phone and turn it back on

eulapot said...

do you use theme launcher? what I do is download GO EX Launcher from googleplay and from there you can download themes

eulapot said...

no pre-installed ebook reader, but you can download from ggogleplay.. i use aldiko and it works for me :)

yhen said...

di pa rin po naaalis ung vibrate kapag nagtetext.. dun lang talaga meron.. kapag nagttype ng msg.. :(

eulapot said...

sorry, mali yung instructions na nabigay ko last time.
go to settings>> language & input >> yung gamit mong keyboard will have a check beside it and then tap the settings icon (parang guitar chords) tapos hanapin mo na dun yung vibrate on keypress and turn it off.

Denzie said...

Your post made me want to get this phone instead of an S3 Mini. I was held up last week and lost my blackberry because of it. I'd rather get this cheaper phone than get another one and lose it to some lowlife scumbag.

Eyric Zhein said...

Hi, I think so, but I don't have Skype so I can't say for sure. You can check the other comments here or you can ask Cherry Mobile directly :)

I downloaded and installed the launcher ever since I got the phone so I'm not sure.. You might want to contact Cherry Mobile directly. :)

when the keyboard appears for writing your message, look for the settings key. it looks like three horizontal bars with three perpendicular shorter ones intersecting each bar. it's normally beside the ?123 button, to its right. if it isn't there, hold the microphone key until a pop up appears. tap on "android keyboard settings". then deselect "vibrate on keypress". also, select "show settings key" so that the settings key will appear on the keyboard and you don't have to hold the microphone key anymore.

but i am basing this on cherry burst, the flare's almost twin. i think they're the same on this front though. i think.

Good evening po. I bought my flare two days ago. May unread message ako na hindi ko mahanap hanap. I deleted all my threads. wala na akong messages both sa simcard at sa phone pero may unread message pa din. I checked my email, pero wala naman akong unread. Paano to? please help.


Tip ko for those who wants a longer battery life for their flare, replace your battery with samsung s3 battery. the same battery model but more juice. 2100 mah. read it somewhere sa net din. yun ang ginagawa ng iba,

Just wanna ask if you know how to make a folder for the music you downloaded on your phone? I tried to google but couldn't find any info. Thanks.

Five days n can't connect to the camera yung flare ko ;( anu po kya pwd gwn

johnny said...

Hindi po b talaga maiiba ung notification sound? Kung naiiba po pano?

bcwires said...

it's not the same model. you still need to modify the terminals of S3 batt to fit it in flare. Plus S3 batt is thicker so may konting awang ang back case mo pag tinakip na.

Rissa Noma said...

hi i love your review! thanks for doing this. After reading your blog, I want to have my own flare na rin tuloy haha. God bless!

StrawberryLoves said...

Hi. Just go to settings, then sound, then click default notification. That's it. :)))

StrawberryLoves said...
