Cherry Mobile Amber: Flare Sibling!

Cherry Mobile Amber: Flare Sibling!

| On 20, Oct 2013

Ever since Flare was announced, Cherry Mobile seemed to have been an unstoppable force, as it has continuously released affordable phones for the Mass. Speaking of Cherry Mobile Flare, it was the most affordable Dual-Core Android phone last November 2012 at P4,000. Less than a year later, Cherry Mobile Released a relatively late sibling with a cheaper price tag in the form of Cherry Mobile Amber.

Cherry Mobile Amber

Cherry Mobile Amber Specs

  • 3G Enabled
  • 1.2GHz Dual Core Processor
  • 4 Inch Capacitive Touch Screen
  • 5MP Main camera with Flash
  • 0.3MP Front camera
  • 4GB Internal Memory
  • FM Radio
  • Dual-Sim
  • WiFi
  • GPS
  • 3G

CM Amber’s specifications looks familiar to Cherry Mobile Flare but with a cheaper tag price. After a year, I’m hoping and keeping my fingers crossed that this phone will perform better than the Flare, despite the lower tag. Still, with a relatively cheap price tag, Amber will surely net a couple of budget-stricken peeps.

    May Difference po ba sya sa Cherry Mobile Life?
    Parang parehas lang naman ung specs except sa 1.3 GHz processor ang LIFE. xD

    • vanz

      May flash po ung cam nang amber :-)

      • vanz

        I apologize for my recent comment. May flash din po pala yung life. yung difference pala nila, yung life may HSPA+ na mas mabilis para sa net.

      • decker van ramos

        may bluetooth po b yung amber?

        • mark

          alangan WALA!

  • Dannie

    Hindi maganda yung 5mp cam ng Life pag di maliwanag ang ilaw sana mas maganda yan Amber. mas maganda pa yung A848 ng Myphone kahit 4000 maganda ang shots sa front at main cam at tama ang colors dito sa CM life yung yellow naging orange at bluish tint (buyers remorse) kung pede lang soli magdagdag ako ng 1k sa A848 sulit ang bayad.

    Yung cam kasi ng Life basta konti lang dilim grainy agad. Samantal sa A848 normal naman ang shots at tama ang kulay.

    • murphy

      syempre may dlim pa rin kaya nga may flash para luminaw

  • darkid

    sa site ng cherry single core lng ang amber

  • keis

    anong pinagka-iba nito sa LIFE? :)
    bukod dun sa 1.3GHz?
    hmmm. mukang mas okay yung LIFE.. same price lang.

  • jeph

    Kaya po ng 1.2 GHz dual core ang android 4.2? di po ba siya babagal nun?

    • val

      kayang kaya no lags at all

  • kerjie

    i just wanna ask kung sino man may amber na..talaga bang walang ilaw yung home and back button?thanks

    • val

      yup walang ilang ung capacitive buttons

      • quew

        wala rin ung life

  • Cherry Mobile

    512MB RAM, Camera w/o AutoFocus, Removable Battery. mura na to, buy na, punta lang sa pinakamalapit na store.

  • Val

    just bought one yesterday wag kau maniwala na mabgal to dahil s dual core n 1.2 at 512 ram, believe me its enough for the phone plus mali 400 pa gpu nito gaya ng life kaya no lags ang games such as dead trigger and stuff worth the money ganda pa ng design manipis lang

    • sarah

      maganda na ba ung camera ng amber?

  • sarah

    maganda po ba ang amber?

  • sarah

    maganda na ung camera nia sa main ung 5mp? pakisagot naman po

    • Cheeze Keyk

      hindi po..kung gusto nio ng magandang quality ng cam, mg branded n lang kau mam or yung mga 8mp..

  • sarah

    maganda na ba ung camera ng amber?

    • Cheeze Keyk

      hindi po..

  • lalala

    Just bought this very good for its price almost the same performance as the CM Life (Antutu score is almost 11k). Also checked in antutu ang nakalagay sa camera is 5mp not 3.15 so maybe 5mp talaga itong sa CM Amber though don’t expect it to perform beyond its price :D . Overall build quality of Amber feels better than CM life, mas mukhang matibay sya at mas maganda tignan, also the bezels dont feel that big in this unit (unlike CM life nga) kaya ito ang kinuha ko despite the 100mhz clock speed difference.

    • ayesha

      yung internet services po kamusta?

    • lalala

      @ayesha

      No problems naman same as any other Android smartphones (has wifi and data plan connection.) Have not experienced any problems with them so far.

      • Cess Less

        ano po ba mas maganda. amber,life or gem.. thanks po :D

        • lalala

          Spec wise, almost the same lang yang tatlong yan, the Amber having slight less spec that the latter two (1.2Ghz rather than 1.3). Real life use however you will barely notice that and its safe to assume that both 3 smartphones will perform nearly identical to each other.

          Kaya magkakatalo tayo dyan sa aesthetics and which has more build quality in your preference. Advice kolang if you are going to buy compare those 3 phones and choose which you liked best. I did just that and originally I opted for the life but changed my mind and went for Amber instead ( walang gem ung branch na binilhan ko xD )

          • Cess Less

            salamat po :D

  • Jaywel Ian Conte

    same lang po ba ang flash ng amber sa flare? mgkasing lakas lang ba sya?

  • lalala

    Dun sa mga nagtatanong about the camera ang masasabi kolang ay wag na kayo masyadong magexpect na maganda ito. “Okay” lang siya kung FB at instagram photos lang naman pero other than that, for the price of 3k for a dual core 4.2.2 JB Android, there are compromises :D .

    Rather poor photos din in low-light conditions di kayo isasalba ng flash nito (At least meron). Best opt for 8mp smarphones kung gusto nyo ng mas magandang shots.

    • Cheeze Keyk

      agree!

  • Cess Less

    ano po ba mas maganda. amber,life or gem..:)

  • dodong00

    ano po pang root nang amber?

    • Cheeze Keyk

      gamit ka framaroot 1.6, search mu lang sa google..

    • Dave Cuesta

      search mo framaroot doon ka sa xDA developer website maghanap nakapost na lahat

  • KhrazyMe

    • Cheeze Keyk

      meron kaso mahina lang tulad ng sakin..

    • vj

      Pag tinaasan mo ung screen light magkaka ilaw sya. Akala ko ako lang may problem dun.

  • jonathan

    mas maganda yung amber sa lahat kasi ang life hindi sya dual sim 3g eh yung amber dul sim 3g yun tsaka yung cam ng amber back 5.0 front 1.3 mp, life back 5.0 front 0.3 vga lang yun kaya kung ako sa inyo amber nalang kayo maganda pa natest ko na yun meron akong amber ehh subok na subok na :D

  • arjay delacruz

    do amber and flare have the same batteries?

  • Cheeze Keyk

    just bought this phone yesterday..

    so far ok naman xa, ok din sa games ang panget lang talaga sakanya is yung cam, lalo na pag gabi.. ang hina ng flash at madilim ang kuha..

    naroot ko na rin xa using Framaroot 1.6 and installed gravitybox ang greenify..

  • missy

    sulit naman ang amber sa halagang 2,999. camera is not good which is expected. Pero ang pinaka gusto kong feature is you can switch which sim you want to use for data connection without physically swapping the sims. connection is fine, d naman sya lag, batt life is good overall kahit masira pa after a year, d naman lugi

  • Kevin Lendyll Aquino

    hi ask ko lng po… ano po mas maganda… etong cm amber or Huawei ascend y300?
    asap
