When it comes to the pricing wars, Cherry Mobile is its own rival, and with its newly announced Touch HD handset, the local phone brand has just set the bar even higher. While the Cherry Mobile Touch HD isn’t exactly a world-beater in terms of specs, it does have the distinction of being the most affordable quad core Lollipop 5.1 phone yet in the country thanks to its Php2,999 price tag. It’s also a fairly decent entry-level phone that won’t leave most casual users wanting.
The Cherry Mobile Touch HD features a 5 inch HD screen, 1.2GHz quad core processor, 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal storage. It also sports an 8mp camera on the back with its own LED flash, as well as a 2mp shooter in front for selfies. You’ll be able to connect to the internet without being tethered to a WiFi hotspot thanks to 3G, while a slightly anemic 1,800mAh battery powers the phone. The fact that it runs Lollipop 5.1 out of the box when nearly everything else runs on KitKat 4.4 is just icing on the cake.
If you’re sold on the phone and want to pick one up, it’s a Lazada exclusive, meaning you can only buy it online right now. Still, they ship it for free nationwide so it’s actually more convenient. Interested in getting the Cherry Mobile Touch HD? Just head over to Lazada by clicking here.
