Cherry Mobile has launched yet another Android handset, the Blaze. The Cherry Mobile Blaze has a 4.7-inch FWVGA (480 x 854) display and is powered by a dual core 1 GHz processor on a Mediatek chipset. It specifications are typical of other devices in its class with 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, dual sim capability and comes out of the box with Android 4.0.4. It differentiates itself from the other phones in its class with a 8 MP camera. The battery is reportedly a 1500 mAh unit, but I still have to confirm this.
The Cherry Mobile Blaze is priced at Php6,499.
Initially, I have one gripe. The phones design looks suspiciously like a Samsung Galaxy S III, and the attempts made at emulating Samsung's design is apparent. The generic Android phone specification calls three or four capacitative, with a home button being marked by a home icon. Samsung has consistently maintained a central large unmarked home button with a physical of capacitative button on each side. The Cherry Mobile Blaze has a Samsung like button design.
