Cherry Mobile Thunder 2.0, 5-inch dual-SIM, quad-core phone for only P6,299

Known for its ultra-affordable decently spec’d phones, Cherry Mobile, just announced the availability of their most affordable quad-core phone, the 5-inch Cherry Mobile Thunder 2.0.

Cherry-Mobile-Thunder-2.0

The Cherry Mobile Thunder 2.0 sports a 5-inch FWVGA (854 x 480) display and runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. It is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor from a Mediatek MT6589 SoC made for low-cost quad-core devices which supports HSPA+. Downer here would be its 512MB RAM which might run into some lags with Jelly Bean. Internal storage is at a staple 4GB with room for a microSD slot.

There’s a 5-megapixel camera at the back with a VGA one at the front, while battery is rated at a decent 2100mAh.

Overall, it looks like a basic quad-core phone with a relatively low price of Php6,299 which I’m sure people would easily compare with other quad-core phones moving forward.

  • Griswold

    kaya nila naipababa ng ganyan yung presyo dahil 512MB lang yung RAM. sayang naman. mga di maasyadong techie lang bibili nito.

  • 5,112 petot na lng toh dapat! ;D

  • LXCr

    for an entry-level,pwede na ang 512 MB RAM.Last year, 512 MB lang ang standard ng mga China phones na to.Bibili na sana ako ng mga naglalabasan non kaso inilabas nmn ng Mediatek yung quad-core SOC nila,kaya nag-intay na lang ako.Ang upgrade kasi ng MTK 6589 sa MTK6577 ay yung quad core at yung GPU na Power VR 544.Intay din tayo ng review.Pag di lag sa games ang 512 MB RAM,I might consider it.

    I’ve been using this thunder 2.0 for around 4-6 months now. But I will give it up for a better dual sim phone. It crashes or forces stop, lags. Not good. Even the keypads are lagging I have to press a few times and harder before letters appear. It is as if it has its own mind. Most probably due to the 512 RAM.

  • Solve n solve ako d2, wla sa ram performance ng games mga choy sa gpu yan mediatek yan png gaming unlike qualcomm. Root nyo nlng n dn tpos lagay setcpu pra overclock

  • Xylu

    hindi naman accurate ang specifications.. ano ba yan! para may mapost lang? ayusin mo naman bago magpost, hindi masama mag research.. 🙂 misleading.. tsk!

  • dudezzz
