Cherry Mobile Cruize, a 5.2″ smartphone for just Php4,499
It seems that Cherry Mobile is not yet done hitting all kinds of screen sizes for their Android smartphone lineup. They recently announced the Cherry Mobile Cruize with its 5.2-inch touchscreen which will only retail for Php4,499.
Why is it cheaper than the 5.0-inch Titan? Or rivaling the price of the 4.0-inch Flare? Well, for one it only has a single-core 1GHz processor so it’s made for the casual smartphone user. Then it also only has a WVGA screen on its humongous display. That’s 800 x 480 resolution for you which results to poorer pixel-per-inch density than the Titan which has the same screen resolution.
It does have dual-SIM support just like most of Cherry Mobile’s current smartphones. Everything else is quite standard : 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage with microSD support, 5MP rear camera with flash, VGA front camera. What’s notable is its 2,500mAh battery which should make it last a little bit longer than their previous dual-SIM Androids.
The Cherry Mobile Cruize is already available in the market for Php4,499. If you don’t have the budget for the Titan but size is a priority, the Cruize can be the phone for you.
