The Cherry Mobile Flare 2X is What the Flare 2.0 Should Have Been With 1GB RAM

At Php3,999, the Cherry Mobile Flare is a great value, offering budget quad core performance at a price that doesn’t break the bank. However, there were still quite a few people who thought that the 512MB was a little lacking. Well, if the Flare 2.0’s limited RAM was a dealbreaker, then you’re going to love the newly released Cherry Mobile Flare 2X.

The Cherry Mobile Flare 2X is almost a mirror image of the Flare 2.0, specs-wise. It comes with a 4″ WVGA screen, 1.2GHz quad core processor and 4GB of internal storage, just like the Flare 2.0. However, rather than the measly 512MB of RAM, the Flare 2X comes with 1GB RAM for better multitasking.

Naturally, the Cherry Mobile Flare 2X comes with all the wireless connectivity options you would need: 3G/HSPA, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 and GPS with A-GPS. The unfortunate downside is that the battery capacity isn’t any better at 1,500mAh. Still, it’s quite the steal at Php4,499. If you aren’t that much of a power user or already own a power bank, the Flare 2X is a solid buy. Looking to grab one? Right now, it’s only available at SM North EDSA but should start rolling out nationwide in the coming days.

    1. I also have a friend whose using a Flare 1 and he’s really disappointed about the battery life. I saw a facebook page that sells a modified 2100mAh samsung battery for the CM Flare. KLSL accessories if I remember correctly. You should check that out 🙂

      1. I bought from that online store before. They even have cases for just about every popular locally branded phone.

  1. Nice try, but it’s not enough to become a compelling choice for buyers now that there’s a lot more local brands to lure customers away.

  2. just been using my new flare 2x for a few days. A great phone except for the battery, i only seem to get about 8 hours useage with wifi on, and listening to music. No SIMs installed.
