Budget tablets are aplenty in the local market, but there aren’t many that combine an HD IPS screen, quad core CPU, and 3G and phone capabilities into a single affordable package. But that’s exactly what the Cherry Mobile Superion Core is. And it manages to tie all of those sought after features into something that’s only priced at Php6,499!
So what are you getting for the money? The Cherry Mobile Superion Core features a 7 inch HD IPS screen and is powered by a MediaTek MT8389 SoC with a quad core processor clocked at 1.2GHz and PwerVR SGX 544 GPU. You also get 1GB RAM, 4GB internal storage, dual cameras (5mp rear, 2mp front), and Jelly Bean 4.2 out of the box. As for battery life, I don’t expect it to last the entire day on just 3,500mAh, but since tablets are used more sparingly compared to smartphones, it should be enough for most people.
The key selling point though is probably the single SIM slot that enables the Superion Core to make phone calls, send text messages, not to mention connect to the internet via mobile data. Even some of the budget 3G tablets from international brands would have trouble matching those specs at that price point. Looking to grab a Cherry Mobile Superion Core for yourself? It’s already available in stores!
