Cherry Mobile Flare Review, is it really worth P3,999?

The much-awaited 4-inch Cherry Mobile Flare has taken the local Android mobile scene by storm with its hard-to-ignore, budget-friendly Php3,999 price tag for the type of phone you are getting.

With the Flare, you’ll be getting a dual-SIM Android 4.0 phone with dual-core processor and a big 4-inch display. However, is that enough for you to shell out your hard-earned cash to acquire this phone? It might, but you might also want to read our review of it first.


Right off the bat, we love how the Cherry Mobile Flare looks up front with its subtle rounded corners and no visible logos or branding. It’s a rebrand of India’s Karbonn A9+ if you’re wondering about this phone’s roots.

The whole front is covered by glass with the 4-inch display having nice thin side bezels. At the bottom of the display are your four Android capacitive touch icons ““ Home, Menu, Back, and Search (looked like this phone was originally made for Android Gingerbread). You’ll also see the VGA front-facing camera on the upper-right side.

Going through the sides, on top is just the Power/Sleep button and the 3.5mm audio jack while on the left you’ll see the volume rocker and the microUSB port for data and charging.

The back panel is made of hard plastic which has a soft matte finish that wards off smudges and fingerprints. Here you’ll see the 5 megapixel camera with flash, and the speaker grill at the bottom. Like the Cherry Mobile Titan, the prints at the back look like it could scrape off over time.

Pry to open the back panel and inside you will see where you need to put your two regular SIM cards and microSD. This phone also comes with a 1500mAh battery.

Despite the plastic build of this phone, we like the overall feel when handling it. The girth and weight feels just right for its size. It’s not too light to make it feel like you’re holding a dummy phone. Actually, this phone looks simple and nice, not premium-looking, but not bad either.

I did feel a slight creak on the left side just below the volume rocker on this unit and the one I used before this.


The CM Flare sports a 4-inch 480 x 800 resolution display with 16 million colors. On its own, it translates to a very nice image output with vibrant colors and sharp edges on text. Just don’t compare it to those qHD Super AMOLEDs and you’ll be happy with this phone’s screen. Our only qualm is that it’s not too bright for proper use under the sun.

It runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich but with some slight modifications when it comes to the icons. It has a different set of icons enclosed in rounded squares which will remind you of the iOS. Frankly, we like it as it gives uniformity to all icons including downloaded apps.


Powering the Cherry Mobile Flare is a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8625 dual-core 1.2GHz processor, not the MSM8225 as reported before. Both are almost the same except that the MSM8625 can also access EVDO 3G networks so you can use a Verizon SIM on it when you’re in the US. This phone comes with 512MB RAM which is subpar compared to the 1GB RAM of big-name dual-core phones released this year.

Using Quadrant, a synthetic benchmarking tool, this phone got a really decent score of 2771. However, it’s still better to rely on actual usage than such apps. The Cherry Mobile Flare can give you a nice user experience with insignificant lags and stuttering whether you’re adding widgets, navigating homescreens or using your apps.

There’s only 4GB of internal storage here with about a GB reserved for the phone’s use so you’d want to make use of a microSD with this one.

Gaming on this is good without any lags although we only tried Jetpack Joyride, Angry Birds Star Wars, and Temple Run. One thing we noticed though is that the gyroscope is not balanced in our unit. Our Temple Runner tends to lean on the left when the phone is laid flat on a surface.

cherry mobile flare opera

Opera Mobile comes pre-installed on this phone which gives you fast loading but still render some websites incorrectly. Web browsing using Chrome is slower than Opera but pages are displayed as is. I noticed that pinching my browser to zoom doesn’t have that smooth transition but it’s also common with other dual-core phones.

Cherry Mobile included a Perfect Keyboard inside which you have to enable in the Settings. If you don’t have a keyboard app of choice, this one’s better than Google’s default in my opinion.


You won’t be disappointed watching movies on the CM Flare because of its 223 ppi display, well not unless you want to watch HD videos here. Playback is smooth with your regular AVI’s and has a nice contrast going on but we still suggest not watching videos under bright conditions.

Volume can get really loud on this phone even if you lay it down on its back. However, you won’t get good clarity or range from its speakers especially when the volume’s on high. I recommend using a pair of headphones or good external speakers if you want good sound quality here. Do note that there’s no FM radio on this phone.

UPDATE (11/26): Actually, this phone is equipped with an FM receiver but no FM Radio app is installed. Here’s how you can install an FM Radio app into the Cherry Mobile Flare.


One of the selling points of the Cherry Mobile Flare is its dual-SIM and dual-standby capability. Do note that only the first SIM slot is capable of 3G connection unlike the Cherry Mobile Titan that can do 3G on both slots.

What I like here is that sending and making calls on any of your SIM requires only one click. Each call and message window gives you a button for each SIM so you don’t have to keep on switching. Selecting which SIM to use for data requires you to go deep into the Mobile Network settings though.


You’ll get a 5-megapixel camera with flash here which comes loaded with Android 4.0’s default but useful features. Auto-focusing is not that quick but we didn’t expect much from phones with this price.

Here are a few sample photos:

[nggallery id=48]

Surprisingly, we got some decent shots with this phone. Photos under broad daylight or with very good lighting appear sharp with decent range of colors. However, you need extremely steady hands when shooting indoors or in poor lighting condition to get a good result.

Video recording on this phone tops at 720p 480p.

You’ll also get a VGA front-facing cam for video chat. We tried it on Skype and it works fine, just don’t expect good picture quality on the other end.

I just have to point out that I know of a couple of Flare units (including the one I used before) having this upside down view with the front cam. When in Skype, you will see yourself upside down although it looks fine on the other end so it’s not a big deal at all.


Giving juice to the Flare is a 1500mAh battery. How does that battery fare on a dual-core phone, with two sim cards and a 4-inch screen?

Here’s my normal usage pattern with the CM Flare: WiFi always on (but not connected), on-off data connection totaling less than an hour, brightness set to auto, very minimal calls and text, and a short bit of gaming every now and then. The Flare lasted for just 10 hours which is below average compared to other Android phones I’ve tested.

With data connection always on while downloading apps and games, and display always on, I barely reached 4 hours before it asked for the charger.

If you’re getting the Cherry Mobile Flare, you would want to charge it when you get to the office and when you get home to be on the safe side unless you have a spare battery or one of those battery packs.


The Cherry Mobile Flare in its entirety is a very interesting and tempting proposition with its Php3,999 price tag. The unbelievably low price makes you think if there’s a catch somewhere. Maybe it’s buggy? Or maybe it uses subpar hardware? The only downside of this phone for me is its battery, which you can easily manage. And that tiny creaky feeling on the left side just because I’m OC like that.

cherry mobile flare 14

If you ask me if I would pay Php4k for this phone, in a heartbeat I would say no because it would make me feel guilty. Like I’m robbing Cherry Mobile. This phone should be worth at least Php8k for such specs. It uses Qualcomm which is a trusted brand for mobile chips as Intel is to the PC. The design may look plain but at least it won’t attract too much attention when you’re commuting. On the other hand, it doesn’t look too cheap that you would feel ashamed whipping it out amidst the Samsung’s and iPhone’s in your crowd.

In short, if you’re still considering getting the Cherry Mobile Flare, don’t. Just go ahead and get it once it becomes available or else you’ll ran out of stocks.

Disclaimer: If you’re wondering, Cherry Mobile didn’t give me a free unit of this phone although if they do, I’ll just be raffling it away here anyway.

    very sulit sa price.. nakaka-akit nga tlaga.. hahaha.. =j kht 1yr mahigit ko lng mgamit to, sulit na eh.. by dec. akin ka na..

    • Carlo

      Iniisap ko na bumili nito. Kaya ba kaya nito site ng mga direct selling companies like MSE and Nastash. I am planning to use it in ordering online.

  • AlphaBetamax

    ask ko po sir ang pixels per inch ng flare? maraming salamat po sa sagot

    • JMBalicano


      • JMBalicano

        Hmm.. gumamit ako ng PPI calculator, kaso nabasa ko sa taas na 223PPI.

  • JMBalicano

    I watched a video review that also detailed the slightly off-balance gyroscope. Is there anything in the settings where you can calibrate it, coz my Note can do it but I’m not sure if that sort of thing is universal across all Android phones.

    • michael

      there is a way if the phone support factory mode hold power and volume down on my device i don’t know on flare

  • JM Oleo

    Does it have sensors like GPS? Or GLONASS? or Gyros? Thanks!

    • kazu

      Magbasa sayang ang MATA

  • kheight

    narelease n po ba to ?? kung oo .. saan ???

  • kazu

    The most awaited review buti naman at maganda ang review

  • Frank

    Ginamitan ng mahika ng Cherry ang phone nila.Talagang magpapanic buy ka sa price na yan,for that specs.
    Nakakasar lang dian eh nagkakaubusan agad.
    Pero ako,maghihintay muna ako ng reklamo(kung meron) ng mga atat bumili.Pag nagflood ng reklamo sa fb nila,di na ko bibili or maghihintay ako na mafix nila.
    Logic lang talaga,pano nila naibaba ng ganon ang price?Hinanap ko na ng hinanap ang price ng Karbonn A9+,puro Karbon A9 ang nalabas.May nakita ako na ang price daw nito ay Rs.10,000(equal to Php 7,554) paano naging 4K lang yun?Nakakahinala tuloy yun.BAKA substandard products yun kaya ganun tapos sabi pa dito eh

    “I just have to point out that I know of a couple of Flare units (including the one I used before) having this upside down view with the front cam. When in Skype, you will see yourself upside down although it looks fine on the other end so it’s not a big deal at all.”

    Kaya kung ako sa inyo,tiis sa paghihintay.
    pansin ko lang, ang bitter ata ng review niyo this time….

    • Calvin

      Panong bitter? Bait ko nga eh. :)

      • Frank

        hehe.hindi pala…
        yung Titan pala yun.akala ko 1st impression sa Flare…

    • Jared

      To put it on perspective. Isang latest iPhone costs at least Php 10,000 to manufacture and binebenta nila for 2/3 more of that price so…

      Baka parang nexus 7 lang marketing neto. Contrary to first rumors may kinikita padin yung google kahit sobrang mura for the specs yung benta nila.

      • Calvin

        nope.. not parang nexus. kaya mura ang nexus sa US is because pwedeng kumita ang google through Google Play, Books, Music, etc. that’s not the case pagdating dito sa Pinas. binabaliw lang talaga tayo ni cherry mobile sa presyo. hahaha.

        • Ryan S.

          tama ka sir calvin, nakaka baliw.. daming nababaliw eh.. haaha..

  • Darwin

    di pa release pero pwede magpa reserve…mukhang ubusan ng stocks to kasi when i asked marami na daw ang nakapag pa reserve

    • vanna

      i just wanna ask kug saan pwede magpareserve ng cherry mobile flare?

      • http://yugatech Don Robert

        sa myphone kiosks try mo. anu bng klaseng tanong yan??

        • green apple

          oh, i thought cherry mobile is different/separated from myphone. hmmmm..

          • yeshun

            hahaha, sarcastic na po yung sagot, ‘di pa po ninyo nakuha.. yung tanong kasi e parang ganito, ” san po ba puwede bumili ng gamot , sumagot ang pinagtanungan, “try mo sa construction and hardware supplies bumili” …hahahaha

  • mooow

    5 points multi-touch screen ba to??

    • Calvin

      Couldn’t test but why would you want to use 5 fingers here? You could barely see the screen if you have five fingers on it.

      • Niwri

        Multi touch test in google play.

        • Tew Tew

          -haha anu b namang question yan.. ang s2pid

          • mplm77

            some games require multiple simultaeneous touches (more than 2 fingers at a time…

            Nakakainip naman release na to… sana meron na dito sa Nueva Ecija or Cabanatuan….

            Mas mainam na to at mas mura compared to MyPhone w900…

    • amao10

      2 points daw….

  • redmd

    bang for buck talaga. now cherry must market this.

  • dongsped

    talagang nakakahinala yong price nya,
    ssa ganda ba naman ng specs at gaanun lng ka mura?
    mag titan nlng ako!

    • Griswold

      dahil ata gawa sa india. mukhang mas mura phones sa india kesa sa china. hehehe.

  • amao10

    ganda ng review… eto na tlga aabangan ko…

    bkt kaya may “tiny creaky feeling on the left side”…

    kailan marerelease?

    • Calvin

      di ko nga talaga ma-gets eh. parang may hollow portion sa loob sa gilid. pero ganun din yung sa kanan pero wala namang problema dun. siguro dahil sa volume control holes sa case kaya medyo napipisil mo yung sa kaliwa paghawak. test niyo na lang pag na-release na.

    • Calvin

      ang huling balita saken is in transit na raw ang mga units. mid-november pa rin ang sabi. no exact date.

      • JMBalicano

        Woot! Got my name on their reserve list. As soon as they text me, I’m out the door 😀

        • Ange

          San po kayo nagpareserve sir? Sabi po sa kiosk sa SM Sta. Mesa, di pa raw pwede magpareserve hangga’t di nalalabas. San po kayo? Hehe. Salamat po.

          • JMBalicano

            SM Marikina po. Hindi naman technically reserve ang ginawa ko. Parang they’ll contact me as soon as may stocks and then punta agad ako para hindi ako maubusan. Kahit hindi limited release lang yan, baka maubusan pa din eh, hehe.

          • Nostalith

            Ako po nakapag pa reserve na sa SM North Edsa.. 75th on the list ako :((

  • wis

  • http://Yahoo Alex

    Kakatawag lang ng Boss ko sa CM Dealer sbi nila this week…(Bka sa 15)

  • ferdinand marte

    this is just my guess. but i think CM will have a 5.2 screen-sized smartphone early next year. price will probably lower than Titan’s.

  • jomel

    I went to sm fairview kanina na may 2 cherry mobile kiosks, 1 sa lower ground at yung isa sa cyberzone. Still, they don’t know kung kelan magdedeliver sa kanila… Can’t wait to have this on my hands! Bka lang kasi magkaubusan kaya im really wanted to have this! :)

  • battery

    Sir Calvin,

    Ano Battery kaparehas ng CM Flare sa other Phone brand?

    • Calvin

      hindi dapat battery lang ang tignan eh. dapat pati processor and display (pati na rin OS) para ma-compare mo talaga yung battery life.

      • battery

        for back up lang sana yung battery from other phone brand. Baka meron makuha na 2500mAh na kasya jan sa CM Flare..

  • Criston John

    Sa tingin nyu po,
    alin ang mas’magndang bilhin

    • Ren

      common sense,it’s a dual core phone clocked @ 1.2ghz, ips lcd also consumes battery more compare to amoled, back-lit lcd etc. and it’s only 1500maH,and hello, it’s 3999php cheap!

  • M@rvin

    I own a lenovo p700I , can you please tell me if flare is better?

    • Calvin

      yes pag wala ka under direct sunlight.

  • chacha

    haay walng FM radio, baka after nito magrelease sila ng version na meron na? yari na.
    any possibility na magrelease sila ng bagong model may FM?

    mas okay ba ito sa star mobile bright?

  • Elmer

    thanks sir calvin for updates, ask lang sir if sms threaded view na siya? Para sulit naman pagpila ko sa sm north this 17..

  • Dan Ong

    Elmer threaded view na yan parehas lang sa Smartmobile na T602i same specs sila lamang lang ang Smartmobile kasi may kasamant TV pa.price is cheaper ng 100pesos

    • joe

      that starmobile is NOT android.
      ergo, no means to root it.

  • rodel

    Sarap panregalo nito, murang mura. Limitted stocks at subsidized ito malamang para mas makaestablish ng market ang cherry mobile. Anyhow, it’s working.

  • athena

    wish i can get one tom. huhu.. sana talaga makakuha ako nito tom..

  • Czed

    May tanong lang about sa messaging. Threaded view ba siya? At pwede bang palitan ang QWERTY to standard keypad? Hirap akong magtext sa QWERTY eh. Nasanay lang talaga sa standard keypad.

    Tsaka naadjust ba yung sharpness sa camera? Para kasing napaka-sharp nung mga sample photos. Sana meron ding sample video.

    Great review though! Lumabas talaga yung mga strong points ng phone. Hindi naman limited stocks ito di ba? Balak ko sanang bumili by the end of November.

    • Mhik

      there are free keyboard apps in the android market (Google Play website).

    • Ispututi

      Napapalitan ang UI ng Perfect Keyboard. Pwedeng normal keypad. Perfect Keyboard user ako eversince. :) Nasa settings lang ng perfect keyboard yun, basta T9 yung name na kelangan mong piliin para sa normal keyboard.

    -ICS browser works fine
    -Clear front speakers(for calling)
    -Loud speaker in the back
    -Front camera appears upside down in some apps(Camera Zoom FX)
    -Gets very hot when using mobile data for heavy downloads.
    -Stock Launcher is not that pretty.
    -Game crashes sometimes when there is an incoming message
    -Proximity and light sensor only has 2 values (1 and 0)
    -Gyro is not centered(slightly to the left)
    -Side of the case has cracking noise when gripped
    -No camera key
    -The brightness adjustment settings is not that useful.(use Lux app for better screen adjustment)

    Other things to note:
    -user available RAM is only about 300mb
    -user available storage is only 2.5gb (+700mb internal)
    -i suggest downloading a different launcher (Apex or ADW), to hide those cherry apps and customize the look to make it look less cheap
    -for a 5mp camera, its not that nice, but its acceptable.
    -i have not yet tested the battery life but ill post soon, i am a moderate user, using 2g networks all day, about an hour of games, auto sync fb and twitter.
    -supports up to 480p video

    Overall for a 4k phone the cm flare is really worth it, if you don’t mind the hardware defects get this phone.The dual core snapdragon S4 play is really good, but not for heavy graphics games, it can run agent dash flawlessly btw.

    im using this phone while waiting for the nexus 4 here in the philippines :)).

    • Kent

      Try to insert other headset and play music you will notice that the sound will flicker…

  • ChrisP


    Scratch resistant ba yung screen?

    Gusto ko sana eto ipang-palit sa Xperia mini ko.

    • Calvin

      im not really sure. im inclined to say no pero wala pa ring gasgas until not kahit walang case or screen protection yung unit namin.

      • ChrisP

        OK thanks! How about the bluetooth, may A2DP ba?
        May bluetooth stereo headset kasi ako.

        • Calvin

          yes may a2dp.

  • Carl

    May user sa na nahulog daw yung phone niya pero ok pa rin. To me it sounds promising. Sana nga lang ma sort out ng CM ang mga known bugs to make the phone a really good deal!

  • Christine

    Question: Does cherry mobile flare have video calling features? and may document viewer po ba siya? pwede din po ba siya maka view ng powerpoint files?? salamat po sa sasagot.. :-)

    • Dx-stein

      Hi, regarding Video Calling download Skype, Viber, etc.; for Document/Powerpoint Viewer/Editor you can also download apps like Adobe Reader, Think Free and Go Documents. You can do that on the internet or via Google Play Store. 😀

  • Christine

    Question lang po. does cherry mobile flare have video calling features? and may document viewer po ba siya? pwede din po ba siya maka view ng powerpoint files?? salamat po sa sasagot.. :-)

  • Stephanie

    • Calvin

      meron sariling casing ang flare.. feeling ko mas marami stock ng casing kesa unit.

  • CB

    meron ba document viewer ang CM flare?

    • Calvin

      lagyan mo ng polaris office from google play.

  • Nathan

    ilang band po ba ang GSM/EDGE/GPRS at 3G nang Flare?

  • http://[email protected] belleisima

    this phone is actually karbonn a9 that sells for 8,900 here. its manufactured by karbonn mobile from india. almost bought it na kaso kulang yung pera ko hehehe. karbonn smart tab 2 nalang yung nabili ko that day. hahaha. 2 weeks after nilabas ng cherry mobile as flare with the whooping price of 3,999! this phone is too good to be true!

  • Quentin

    Bought the unit yesterday for 4,490 here in Davao. So far no qualms about it. Just wanna know kung may kasize ba itong ibang phone model para mabilhan ko ng back casing..?

    • jm

      3999 lng bili ko sa nc mol..Nov22
      Bat +500php yn

  • Art_franc

    I bought CM Flare nung Nov. 17 sa SM north. Ok naman sya maganda performance. Ang problem ko lang is yung text messaging. Pag nag-txt ka e wala sa order yung conversation. Rumble sya. Is this a factory deffect or ganun talaga?

    • Calvin

      threaded dapat conversation. i think kung timing issue it’s because of the network. parang mas maaga time ni Smart kesa kay Globe.

    • Arkita

      Try using SMS Time Fix.

  • http://[email protected] icewolf

    Guys just a quick question.. saan ba pwedeng makabili ng casing para sa CM Flare malapit sa pasay?


    • Calvin

      try niyo yung mga cm stores. robinsons manila para sure siguro.

  • Roy

    Mukhang Optimus Black. :)

  • david

    im a online forex trader i used applications for trading like mt4 flatforms. becouse of its cheaper price i think it is not flash supported. The big question is, it is good multimedia phone?

  • joan

    mga sirs..kamusta ang gps nito? ok namna ba? and yung tethering?.me mga nababasa kasi ko sa tpc na medyo ilang user di satisfied sa features reg. dito.thanks :)

  • http://google erwin

  • mariz gorduiz

    yung fren ko 2 days pa lang sa kanya yung phone tapos nahulog mga 4 feet ata yung taas ng pagkahulog nya pero okay parin

  • Jaypee

    Ask lang po sir kung pwede to gamitin for USA? quadband po ba tawag dun? Thanks in advance po

    • Calvin

      yes pwede sa US… actually triband lang pwede na eh.

  • john

    sana my mg post…on how to root flare….

  • Maquele Angelie

    nice review.. very comprehensive.. and i love the grammar.. hehehe

  • Ras

    Hi. Um.. I was just wondering if this what you so called CM Flare has the same camera quality like CM Titan. I want to have one but you know, I mean, I’ve read the CM Titan Review and I noticed that many user was disappointed with the camera quality of the Titan, so I was just curious if the CM Flare has the same cam quality like Titan. Hoping for your reply! GOOD DAY! 😀

    • Calvin

      i posted some sample photos in this review. see if that looks fine for you.

  • Sevennights

    For CM Flare users, I would just like to ask if you tried playing HD videos here, and used video playing apps (like MX Video Player). How did it fare? How is the video quality?

    • Quentin

      I tried playing two HD Music Videos. One 1080p – Failed. Two 720s – Played for a second then froze. My bad though since Alvin wrote it can only play 480. But well, atleast I tried. :)

      • Calvin

        downconvert it to a smaller mp4 file… u dont need 720p on a 800 x 480 resolution.

  • http://google jen

    hi gud eve!
    ask lng panu i-adjust ung front camera ng flare?kc blurr xa pro ung back camera ok nmn so far.s front cam lng ndi,my screen protector kc nakaka-affect b un?

    • Calvin

      vga camera lang naman yung front so mababa lang talaga quality compared sa back.

  • Bobryena

    Well, for a 4k phone this is quite impressive. But compared to my iphone 4s? No luck :))) but itll do for others who want a cheap phone

    • MangTonyo

      another typical iSheep bragging his shit phone… you dont belong here

    Supported ba nito ang flash player? Makaka stream ba ito sa mga sites outside youtube? At smooth ba?
    Lahat na kase ng review nabasa at napanood ko pero walang nag sabi if supported ba ang flash. At very short ra ang test nila sa browser.

  • Sid

    Thank you for these honest and frank reviews. It’s worth a lot to get a real user’s experience and not just another salesperson.

    Question: what is the SAR rating for this phone?

  • Dyem The Reviewer

    Dude I have a Lot of Questions About sa TITAN and FLARE , Here is Some of Them :) Hope na Masagot nyo po agad :)

    1.Kung Lalabas Man yung New O.S ng Android na JellyBean Version , Mauupgrade kaya tong TITAN and FLARE From sa default O.S nilang ICS na 4.0 TO JellyBean na 5.0 ??

    2. May Mga SECRET CODES Din Ba Sila TITAN and FLARE Gaya ng mga Samsung Galaxy , LG Optimus at iba pang Branded na Phones ?? Example : *#*#0000#*#* – for phone checking .

    3. Yung Battery Life nila Gaano ba sila Tumatagal , If Ever na Adik User ang gagamit for Gaming and Browsing ??

    • Calvin

      1. we don’t know
      2. nope, as far as i know
      3. check mo yung review for the battery life test namin. halos same lang sa heavy usage namin.

      • julia

    • Wowie

      best review amputspa, kissing arse!!!

  • Jojo

    Hi, nice writeup.. but when you suggested to have a good headphone or connect it to external speakers, have you actually done this or you just assume it will work? A lot of flare users are complaining about headphone compatibility and audio plugs from speakers not being detected which is just sad because even a P500 worth of mp3 player can beat the heck out of this smartphone’s current audio setup.

    • Calvin

      i tried my urbanears earphone and a portable speaker. ok naman.

  • Chillman

    Sir ask ko lang about sa text message. Pwede ba siya gawing ABCD? or QWERTY pad na talaga? Thanks! :)

    • Calvin

      try mong maghanap ng keyboards sa Google Play na kaya different formats tapos yun ang gamitin mo as default.

  • jell

    bakit walang send ng music sa may music playlist di talaga ako maka pag sent ng music mp3

    • Calvin

      download ka ng file manager… like ES File Explorer. then hanapin mo mp3 mo doon, tapos press and hold to see options na pwede mong gawin sa file.

  • Ramil Ramos

    Hi Calvin,

    This is a very good review, compared to others who only base theirs from the box specs, not knowing that the actual processor is 8625 (not 8225). Got mine last Dec 28 from Berlein in Ali Mall. So far, everything is very satisfactory except for the Bluetooth which is not compatible with the built-in Bluetooth in my car(Mirage). This is also the reason why I could not use Flare as my primary phone, since I am always on the go. My headset from Sony WT19i LWW phone though works perfectly with this unit.

    My final comment is that why CM says 1.2GHz while the actual is only 1.15GHz (50MHz slower) processor even when using SetCPU & No-frills CPU? Do I need to use custom ROM to get 1.2GHz? Anyway, stock ROM works fine with less bloatware. But for the price of Php3,999… I love this Flare.

    • drewman

      anung comparisons mo sa wt19i?
      meron din kasi ako wt19i kaso sira and dont know how much ipaayos and im planning to buy cm flare kung di magkakalayo sa gastos.tnx

  • Chris

    Kabibili ko lang kahapon na flare, pero pag pumasok ako sa sound settings may lumalabas na message “unfortunately, settings has stopped.” paano po i.ayos ito???

    • Wiii

      Hard reset

      • Booo

        how to hard reset sir? may mga articles ba on how to do it? thank you :)

        • Calvin

          wala ba sa settings yung reset? yun lang alam kong phone reset eh.

          • _whab_

            To do HARD RESET: Close all apps and remove your battery while the phone is On. Re-insert battery after 2 min.

          • tine

            bt gnun sir ayaw pdn maacess nung sound settings :(

    mga sir d b kayo nakakaexperience ng problem with skype s flare?ayaw kc gumana ng video call nung samin ng erpat q.ano b suggestions nyo?

  • jomar

    san pa po may stock?

    • Karl

      Available na ulit ang Flare sa Robinsons Manila, and I hear in other places like SM North, Megamall, Festival Mall (Alabang), SM Southmall (Las Pinas).

      Anyway, bumili nga ako last week sa outlet ng Cherry Mobile sa Rob Manila. P3999 pa rin yung Flare mismo, pero kailangan bumili ka din ng battery pack @ P1000, so P4999 yung total price. Ok lang sakin na bumili ng battery pack pero hindi ata sanctioned ng Cherry Mobile mismo na nakabundle yung phone at batt pack.

  • :”>

    Up to now, wala pa rin bang problem yung flare mo Sir?

  • yrna

    i also feel the creaking in both sides. my skype is not upside down though but my instagram is. can u teach me how to print screen?

        How can I set up Skype Video call? I already uploaded skype but I can only make voice call. Thank you.

        • Calvin

          uh make sure the recipient can receive video call. straightforward lang naman paggamit, have you tried it flare to flare? na-try ko kasi flare to ipad eh. ok naman skype video call.

    • Karla

      did you return the unit for replacement? with my unit it is only on the left side lower part of the slide button.

  • Addie

    I’m getting one today. I’m so excited as it will be my first Android. I’m not a gamer so I don’t think I would have an issue with its battery (?).

    • Calvin

      yup! you’ll definitely enjoy it if you’ll going to be using it mainly for fb, twitter, instagram, etc.

      • Addie

        Hey. Been IG-ing like crazy since yesterday. I didn’t know such exists. 😛

        However, I’ve got one trouble so far (and God forbid there’s more). For some reason its front-facing camera has gone missing. Before that, the Camera itself wouldn’t work (unfortunately I forgot what it said) but was able to resolve it by going to Settings > Apps > Camera. Then I hit the Clear Data button and voila, it worked again. The second time it happened and tried to resolve it that way the camera worked again but noticed that the ffc (icon) disappeared.

        Went back to the store and had it checked and some lady suggested that it be set to factory setting…I may be opting for it, but thought I’d try my luck here just in case you have had the same experience (with other phones, too)or any ideas how to bring the front-facing camera icon back.

        Thanks a lot brah!

          tried rebooting the phone? memory mustve ran out from all the instagramming. hehe.

          • Addie

            Re: instagramming; my thought so too. But seriously I have rebooted it jillion times to no avail.

            I guess my vanity is doomed?

        • Jayson

          this happened to my Flare too…
          but when I changed my memory card, OK na…

          • Addie

            Mine doesn’t have a memory card yet. Last night I uninstalled some apps, including Viber and Twitter and guess what! FFC’s back!

    • PopoyMasaya

    Hi Sir Calvin, malakas po ba ang WIFI HOTSPOT ng CM Flare? Hanggang ilang devices po ang pwede makaconnect?


    • Calvin

      same as other phones… 5 yung max na kayang maka-connect i think.

  • Mia

    Hello Ask Kolang poh kung myron nito sa Sm Clark Pampanga

  • Dan

    Calvin, maganda nga sa totoo pero walang stock kahit saan kang dealer pumunta, sabi ng isang dealer phase out na daw ang flare kasi may problem daw sa hardware i don’t know how true but i rather rely on your comment. Saan ba talaga may stock gusto ko bumili ng isa???

    • Calvin

      i wouldnt know where to get one althgouh may mga comments dito nanagsasabi kung san meron. as for phased out, wala naman akong naririnig kay cherry mobile about it. ma-phase out lang yan if may maireplace na si CM sa flare na mas maganda.

      • Mikhaella Gealan

        Meron sa Surigao php3999 lng kaso nga ang layo. :)

  • bajula

    i just bought my cm flare and so happy of the high end features but after two weeks using it, it bogged down.i sent the unit in the service center and their disposition is that the unit needs to be replaced because they cant repair the hardware and instead gave me an option that i should pay add 10%..why should i pay if the problem occurred in the unit is hardware malfunctioning?im so dissapointed

    • bajula

      ps additional 10% for replacing the unit

      • whab

        Same problem here… YM is not even allowing flare user’s to do video calling.

        Don’t know if we can do some workarounds to fix this issue. But i think it is more on the side of the developer.

    • whab

      Sir Calvin,

      May alam po ba kayo kung panu mag-video calling sa Flare via Skype or YM or facebook? Do you know any apps that we can download to solve this issue? I’ve tried a lot of apps/plugins but none of them is working for Flare :-(

  • Dwight

    Sir,1st time android user kasi ako. Pano i-connect sa WiFi? I mean,may tamang settings ba? Pag nakakasagap kasi ako ng connection,edi coconnect ako. Then,connected na daw. Pero di ako makapasok kahit sa FB. Please help po. Thanks.

    • Calvin

    HI. Ang naging prob ko sa flare is yun hissing sound. pag open ng fone and any other apps. na resolve nman sya, via software update. too bad, napa gastos pa ako ng P550. meron nman plang update sa site. huhuhu. Batt, such a pain. pero me nkita ako na 2200mh sa Tipidcp, P500. didnt buy one yet.

    I am impressed with the GPS. worked well with copilot and other gps apps. better na maglagay ka ng GPS Test app pra mapabilis yun pag connect sa sattelites.

    Im just wondering why marami me gusto nito? hehehe. sabagay, for its price, pwede na.

        • Jesse Boy

          1. punta ka sa settings

          2. hanapin mo ang “Date & time” and click.

          3. tick mo yung “Automatic date & time(Use network-provided time)”

          Thats all.

          Sana makatulong.

        • Jesse Boy

          Di nag’alternate ang mga message dahil may conflict sa time between sent message at received message. Ang ginagamit ng SENT messages ay phone time, ang ginagamit naman RECEIVED messages ay network time(i.e. Smart, Globe, Sun).
          Sa message thread naman, nakaarrange message from the newest to oldest based on time kaya kapag hindi iisa ang synch ng time mo, even in seconds, di talaga magiging alternate yan.
          Ang nangyayari kasi nagkakaroon ng dalawang time na sinusunod ang message mo kaya di sya mag’alternate.

          By turning on the automatic date & time, gagamitin nya ang date and time ng network lang kaya nakasynch na ang time and that will resolve your message alternate problem.

    • Jacob

      Payo ko po ay imbes na extra battery ay bumili ka na lang po ng high capacity power bank, portable din naman iyon ganoon, para maliban sa pwede mo pang charge ng CM Flare mo iyon ay pwede din pang charge ng iba pang portable gadget tulad ng camera, handheld game console at iba pa. Check mo lang po sa Google, o sa, o sa CD-R King tungkol sa mabibilhan ng power bank.

      • uyen

        nararanasan ko din yan. ang ginagawa ko hindi ko nilalakasan yung volume ng phone. ang nilalakasan ko nalang yung volume ng amplifier.

  • Oshin

    Hi may I ask bakit po di ko marinig yung tone kapag may nagtetext sakin? Chaka po walang indication na may text ka. Like dun sa app na msg na may 1 gnyan. If di ko bbksan msg app i won’t be informed na may text. Gnyan po ba talaga? Or may mali lang?

    • grace

      nid mo lang adjust sa setting ng SMS. Check mo kung naka check yung notifications at mamili ka ng tone..pag d yun nakacheck,wlang sound at walang notification ka marereceive pag may nagtext sayo..otherwise, pwde ka magdownload ng Go sms pro at disable mo ung notification ng settings ng original sms setting mo na embedded sa phone mo..para ma customise mo ung gusto mong sms tone and ringtones..whtehr may pop up window or ididsplay yung message content or not

      • http://faith'sshopville Faith

  • arman

    super ganda ng CM Flare , I bought it 5 months ago and until now I dont have encountered any problems, watching you tube in CM flare is so clear, its so cheap and can be compared to other expensive smartphones, sayang lang ang pera nyo kung bibili kayo ng ibang expensive brands na pareho lang sa CM flare

  • jm

    Yung Flare ko minsan hindi lumalabas ang mga messages. Pagkabukas ko ng message app, blank lang. Tas pag nirestart ko, saka lang nabalik. Then later, nawawala na naman tas kelangan ko na naman irestart para lang lumabas ulit ung message lists.

    -What do I need to do? Can I fix this on my own or should I refer it to the distributors? Would reformatting the phone also help? -.-

  • John Castano

    paano ko po ma aactivate ung dual Sim sa phone ko pag gamit ko po ung app na Go sms pro ang lumalabas po kase Send lang at wala pong Sim1 @ Sim2 aun lang po tnx sana masagot nio po :)

  • MeemAi

    hi im using go sms on flare.. i have 2 activated sim card.. One is for 3g and the other is for regular sim card. My 3g is on slot1 which is needed to work the data perfectly. However, i cant do outgoing messages using go sms.. whenever i hit on send.. i assumed that its detecting the 3g sim card that’s why it cannot go through. what shud i do po?? thanks in advance! appreciated your serious replies..

    • Calvin

      maybe Go SMS can’t work with dual SIM? laging SIM 1 ang default nya? Or baka may option GO SMS to use SIM 2?

    • MeemAi

      yah probably nga.. ive tried to check na din settings ng go sms and it doesn’t have any options. well.. thanks much! really appreciated your reply 😉

    • MeemAi

      and 1 more.. sorry! does flare can do screenshot? thanks much!

      • OHYEAH

  • Regil

  • vince

    Just bought this phone 2 weeks ago. It take very long hours of charging and very short usage duration. Whats wrong with the battery – is it part of the warranty for change battery or phone check.

  • glen

    after nine months of normal phone use, the phone just died. since this unit is under warranty, i returned it for repair but when they turned it back to me i found out that my phone’s network signal is intermittent. so, i returned the unit but until now the intermittent network signal is not yet resolved. i lost count how many times i returned the unit until i lost interest with this phone. lesson learned, always expect cheap service for cheap phones. cherry mobile flare sucks to the infinite level.

    • Karla

      After a year and a month usage, my CM Flare’s battery gave out its efficiency. Just wondered it was so sudden. Full battery charging takes only less than an hour usage, if it’s not, only two hours. Quality like discourages me to but locally assembled mobile phones. Lesson learned, don’t be swept away by cheap mobile phone prices.

    I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come
    across a blog that's equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I'm very happy that I found this in my hunt for
    something regarding this.
