Cherry Mobile Life: Reigning on the MyPhone Rain


It looks like Cherry Mobile plans to rain on the MyPhone Rain parade. A few days ago, MyPhone launched a low cost, Php2,988, Android Jelly Bean, smartphone. Yesterday, Cherry Mobile unveiled a direct competitor to the Rain, the Cherry Mobile Life, priced at Php2,999.

Quick specifications:

  • Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean)
  • 4-inch WVGA (480 x 800) display
  • Dual sim support
  • 4 GB internal storage expandable via a MicroSD card slot
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 1 GHz dual core MediaTek MT6572M processor
  • Mali-400 graphics processor
  • 5 MP autofocus primary camera with LED flash
  • 0.3 MP front camera
  • HSPA+
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth
  • A-GPS
  • 1500 mAh battery
The specifications of the two phones are almost identical. The Cherry Mobile Life has a larger, sharper display. It also offers a battery which is rated 200 mAh higher. In terms of cameras, the Cherry Mobile Life  has a 5 MP primary camera against the 3.2 MP unit on the MyPhone Rain. The camera on the Cherry Mobile Life is also an autofocus unit and has a LED flash. The MyPhone Rain has a fixed focus camera and has no flash. The My Phone Rain does have a 1.3 MP front camera, which has a higher resolution than the Cherry Mobile Life's VGA unit, but all in all, the Cherry Mobile Life looks like the much better choice among the two. That is being polite. Really, there is no contest.

It looks like the name Rain, was prophetic, in a bad way.

    1. The way I use a smartphone, the 1GB of RAM on the 2X would be useful. But in terms of 3D performance the Lige Life with its Mali-400 graphics card should have the advantage.

  6. 2 touch lang po at pangit talaga camerakailanga maliwanag talga pag kukuha ka ng pics kasi konti dilim lang dark agad ang shots. Mas mabuti buy ka na lang ng Myphone a848 kahit mas mahal ng 1000 maganda main at front cam. Na try ko kasi sabay sa store sa mall walang wala ang camera ng Life ( buyers remorse) kung pede lang ibalik to kunin ko 3000 ko.

  14. É importante também estar atento se as empresas contratas estão entregando a internet que está no contrato.
    Para verificar isso, sempre faça um teste de velocidade para medir sua internet.
