The Cherry Mobile Flare X3 Has Been Priced!

Cherry Mobile fans who’ve been looking for a mid-range follow up to the Flare S7 Plus have had a lot to look forward to these past few days. After slowly leaking a few camera samples of the Cherry Mobile Flare X3, the local brand then released the specs and gave bloggers unrestricted access to an engineering unit, allowing me to give my hands on impressions of the device. Finally, they’ve announced the price, and boy is it competitive at Php9,999! In case you needed a refresher, here’s what you’re getting for the money.

The Competition

Cherry Mobile has long been content with dominating budget-entry level market. This newest entry is very clearly targeted at the mid-range though. And while the competition also has a number of Helio P60-powered smartphones in their portfolio, none with 6GB RAM below the Php10k mark come to mind.

 

 

About The Author

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.
