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.

Cherry-Mobile-Cruize

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.

5.2″ WVGA (800×480) capacitive display, 179ppi

Dual SIM, Dual Standby
5MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash

2500mAh Li-Ion battery
SRP: Php4,499

    In my humble opinion if this hand held device had come out 5 years ago we would all be “lovin’ it!”. Compared to my old trusty Nokia E-61i this “Cherry” is a fantastic phone. However if you are accustomed to using an iPhone you will more than likely be disappointed. Another case in point is my kids love their Starmobile Engage 7 tabs. For 4990 it’s pretty cool. I don’t have a nexus 7 or an iPad so the Engage doesn’t really disappoint. 

    Maybe Cherry or Star or my phone will produce a 5″ with better specs for 9990! One can hope, can’t he?U

      ayaw mag candycrush sa CRUIZE :( uninstall install ayaw p rin :( checked on settings, ayaw p rin :(

  • Vern

    180 ppi? This unit is pixelated and slow.

    • exaleop

      now you know one of the reasons why its cheap.

  • Art Cruz

    wow, is this available now, where to buy?

  • Rosenburg

    Does it has TV?

    • http://calvinshub.com Calvin

      no tv

      • exaleop

        then this sucks, it could’ve been better if it has TV coz it has a big screen.

  • pfb

    ok na sana pricing, kaso single core and so-so specs. id rather go for the myphone a919

    • callie

      poorer battery quality than cherry mobile cruiz or titan

  • Doc Neil

    Is the unit quad band?

  • JUNE

    this is a nice. But if CM could have a unit that comes with a 4G then definitely I will be one of the many who would be drooling over CM .. thanks CM keep up :-)

  • patrick

    single core and 179 ppi? i don’t think i will enjoy a 5.2-screen phone with these specs. sana ginawa nang dual core at tinaasan ang screen resolution kahit mas mahal ng konti.

    • hello basil

      Agreed.

    • exaleop

      LMAO!
      179p or 180p, that’s way too low even for Samsung Galaxy S1.

      i’d rather have my S1 for 1-2 years more than to buy this crap.

  • rets

    Sana dual core at TV din kasi mas importante ang may TV para sakin na big screen at dual core.

  • Pong

    Wala ba syang gpu ?

  • pyke

    Nice. Some people looking for a better specs. Why not buy an expensive phone

    • http://www.facebook.comerenismoh erenismoh

      Totally Agree!!

  • Totem

    Wow! Can’t believe that most of you are complaining because of the low PPI.. Remember that 7″ tabs before had 800×480 screen? Yet only a few seemed to complain about it.. Now that the screen size is smaller and has the same resolution, you guys are getting mad over it? LOOOL This phone is targeted to the average consumer.. If you have money, then go shell it out on a much better phone..

    • http://www.facebook.comerenismoh erenismoh

      men i totally agree of what you said :)
