Both of these devices sport Android 9 Pie, 3000mAh battery capacity, and 4GB of RAM right out of the box. They also offer LTE connectivity, Dual SIM slots, and expandable storage via microSD.
When we compare their spec sheets, the Cherry Mobile Flare Y7 Pro trumps the other with its fast-charging capability, larger front camera resolution, and a 2.5D curved glass over its more dense display. Gaming isn’t also a problem with its capable MediaTek Helio A22 chip and 4GB of RAM.
Meanwhile, the Flare S8 Deluxe gets the nod for having a larger display, bigger internal storage, and better processing chip. Its UNISOC chip, the SC9863A octa-core processor with Cortex-A55 and clocked up to 1.6GHz, also performs better in more key benchmarks than the Helio A22, making it more for multitasking and heavy work. It also features a fingerprint scanner, something that the Y7 Pro doesn’t have.
Which one would you choose between these two? The Cherry Mobile Flare Y7 Pro and Flare S8 Deluxe are both available in stores for Php 4,999.
