Cherry Mobile has launched a new Android phone, which really would make the prospective buyer take pause and weigh the pros and cons. It has a lot of both.
Pro. It's a 5.2-inch Android smartphone, not many of those around.
Con. It has a 1 GHz single core Broadcom processor. The Cherry Mobile Flare give you a dual core phone for less money.
Pro. It has a large 2500 mAh battery.
Con. The WVGA (480 x 800) display is not one anyone would call sharp.
Pro. It has dual SIM suppot.
Con. It still runs Android 4.0.4... where is that 6-inch Jelly Bean powered Omega you have been teasing us with.
Pro. It is priced at just Php4,499.
... And it really comes down to that.
Some people will like this phone, and others will not. Many would advice adding 2K and picking-up the Cherry Mobile Titan instead. For others, they really don't need the dual core power of the Titan, and the Cruize is a better value for money option. A lot of people spend twice as much money on a 3.5-inch phone with a 800 MHz processor. A 1 GHz processor is enough for many people. Like it or hate it, it is a good value for money options.
Pro. Options are good. Basically, it is nice to have more choices.
Con. Walk into a Cherry Mobile store and you will have a hard time choosing. Too many attractive choices.
