Unboxing

The box is made of hard paper with a smooth finish. The image of the phone is displayed in front on a blue background and Flame 2.0 on silver print. At the back if the specs of the unit.

The box contains the following:

  • Cherry Mobile Flame 2.0
  • Wall Charger
  • Micro USB Cable for charging and Data Transfer
  • Standard 3.5mm headset
  • Instruction Manual

Cherry Mobile Flame 2.0 physically looks like an ordinary Android device. It’s indeed thinner and lighter from the previous models released. I find it look better than the previous Flame.

Flame 2.0 has a 4.5-inch qHD IPS display, 4GB internal memory, and 1GB of RAM making it smooth when playing 3D games and Multi-tasking. I tried comparing its size to the Samsung Galaxy S3. Flame 2 is a bit thicker than the S3 but S3 is taller and wider than the Flame 2.0.

The size of the Flame 2.0 has a comfortable feel that makes it easier to hold. However, because it is quite tall; it is a bit hard to reach the Power/Sleep button when using one hand.

Flame 2.0 has the specs, features, and price that most of the local consumers have been waiting for. On top of the specs mentioned above, this smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon S4 processor. Snapdragon processor is best for multi-tasking and this is also the processor used by some leading brands of smartphones and tablets. With this Snapdragon Quad core processor, Cherry Mobile is really getting into the mainstream in the mobile phone business.

FLAME 2.0 will be available to the public this coming April 2013 with the srp of Php 6,999. We are expecting a huge crowd on this event so watch out for the announcement before all units become sold out.
