Cherry Mobile Razor will be the "most affordable Dragon Trail Glass Smartphone"

Cherry Mobile released a teaser promising that the Razor will be the "most affordable Dragon Trail Glass Smartphone". While Dragon Trail durability is very enticing, it is the "most affordable" part that really gets my attention. With the Cherry Mobile Omega HD being priced at Php7,999, this means that the Razor will come in for less than that.

I was expecting the Cherry Mobile Razor to cost more frankly. Humming away inside the Cherry Mobile Razor is a 1.2 GHz quad core MediaTek MT6589 processor with PowerVR DGX544 graphics. That is one powerful combo. That is the same chipset you see on all the new 4.7+ inch HD phones from Cherry Mobile, MyPhone, O+ and Starmobile.

In the Razor, it is mated to a smaller lower resolution 4.5-inch qHD display. Personally, I think this is a good thing. I am not all too fond of the larger and larger handsets we have these days. I consider 4.5-inches as the perfect size for me. With this sized display, the Cherry Mobile Razor is still a fairly wide 68 mm wide, which is about as wide as a HTC One. The Razor though is a thin 7.7 mm. This is thinner than the Apple iPhone 5, HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S 4 and Sony Xperia Z.

A 4.5-inch HD (720p/720 x 1280) display would have been more impressive, but lower resolutions do have their benefits. A 4.5-inch qHD (540 x 960) display is still a reasonably sharp 245 pixels per inch. At the same time, it means that the PowerVR SGX544 graphics has 70% pixels less to push than if it was powering a 720p display. Prepare for some really amazing 3D benchmarks on the Razor.

Cherry Mobile will announce the price on June 29, 2013, and we will find out how affordable it really is. But even at Php7,998, it would still be a great deal.

June 29, 2013: The price is an amazing Php6,499!


  1. The best for me is the StarMobile Knight, which has 18 Megapixel on Rear, crisp video recording and also its front faceing Camera which is 8 megapixels for skypes, or instagrams, and whats best is their cam responds to eye moves or it takes shots on gestures like smiling and it will automatically take shots or what ever you set it to. QuadCore tin and they use Cornings Gorrila Glass, (which is also used by the way from all of the iPhone 4 , 4s , 5 , 5s Apples, also Samsung galaxy also uses corning Gorrilla Glass for scratch protections in fronts and also has dragon trail for the back.
