Specs Comparison: Cherry Mobile Flare X vs Alcatel Flash Plus

With Cherry Mobile’s entry into the bang-for-the-buck, mid-range segment of the smartphone market with the Flare X, how will it fare against the current competition? We’ll be showing a few hardware comparison charts to see how it will fare with a few phones that are already out in the market.


First up, we’ll put CM’s new Flare flagship against the much-applauded Alcatel Flash Plus, whose internals and price range is the closest.


When comparing both handsets based on their spec sheets, there are a lot that can be said about the local smartphone brand’s new smartphone advantages. For Php 6,999, the Flare X sports a better Full HD screen, bigger RAM, Dual LED Flash, and a better clocked octa-core processor. The Flare X also poises itself as one of the most readily-available bang-for-the-buck smartphones in the local market once it hits offline retailers in Metro Manila and online shopping websites by July, something most phones in this segment currently lack.

With that being said, there are also a lot of advantages for getting the Alcatel Flash Plus. The HD screen can benefit mostly from its 3500mAh battery capacity, which can tout a longer battery life. It’s also one of the most affordable phones right now — at Php 6,450 — and it’s equipped with a better front camera resolution at eight megapixels.

Now that the local smartphone brands are responding to the competition started by international handset makers, which will you choose? You can take part in the poll by chiming in with your comments section below.

    Too bad for the AFP with only 32GB expandable via microSD, I will opt for the CM Flare X or the FM Allure64LTE. Just waiting for the actual review from both handsets regarding the camera and battery usage.

    WP8.1 with 64GB microSD SanDisk.


      lol i have an AFP and a 64gb memory card works fine for me

    Sayang, Dual LTE rin yung Flare X and zenfone 2 has 5mp na camera pero mas maganda sa AFP

    flare x? ilang oras kaya ito sa gaming? 1.7Ghz plus 5.5 FHD screen with 3k mah battery will drain the battery faster. i hope cherry mobile uses a reliable battery if not then Flare x wont make 3hrs gaming. its not right to compare smartphones through papers. it has to be test. its like comparing iphone and cherry mobile.

    Sayang ang cm flare x kasi 1.7 octacore tapos 3gb ang ram kaso hindi kinaya nung mali t760 gpu yung 1080p screen kaya some games are lag like nba 2k16 there’s a frame drop everywhere and laggy and gta san andreas plays without lag but you must play it on medium settings i prefer the alacatel flash plus cause it has only a 720p screen and a mali t760 gpu, the mali t760 gpu handles the 720p very well. at kayang kaya pati nung alcatel yung nba 2k16 at gta san andreas without some lag. kaya pag heavy gamer ka dun ka sa alcatel pag multi tasker ka naman dun ka sa cm flare x.
