Cherry Mobile Cruize 2

Some of you may recall the original Cherry Mobile Cruize, a single core phablet that was meant to be an even more affordable option than the Cherry Mobile Titan already was. Well, now it finally has a successor in the form of the Cherry Mobile Cruize 2, and it’s still as basic as ever.

The Cherry Mobile Cruize 2 features a ho-hum 5 inch FWVGA display and runs on a 1.2GHz quad core processor. That processor isn’t from a familiar name though. No, it’s not from MediaTek, Qualcomm or even Broadcom. Actually, it’s from Spreadtrum, a much less heralded Chinese chip-maker. Don’t fret though. Some of the recognizable names that use their chipsets include Samsung and Lenovo.

The rest of the specs are rather unimpressive. You’re getting just 512MB RAM (oh noes!), 4GB internal storage, an 8mp rear camera and a VGA front camera. There’s also HSPA+ support, WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. At least it manages to run Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box!

The specs may be far from groundbreaking, however the price will certainly be attractive to anyone looking for an extremely affordable phablet for less than Php4k. Actually, the Cherry Mobile Cruize 2 manages to retail for just Php3,499!

Interested? You’ll want to head on over to Cherry Angel then, who is the source of this pic. Their store is located in 168 Mall, Divisoria.

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.

    For me, I used Cherry Mobile for almost 5 months and I didn’t regret choosing this one because it is up to the owner on how to “own” his or her cellphone… as long as the basic web browsing and gaming Candy Crush Soda is one then its ok for me
