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.
