Cherry Mobile Blaze 2.0: 5.7-inch HD IPS Display, Quad-core Processor, 1GB RAM for Php9,499

Cherry Mobile finally announced the Cherry Mobile Blaze 2.0, the successor of the original Blaze android phone. This time, it looks like it will take the front seat among all CM android phones available at the moment.
The configuration and all doesn’t really seem surprising, as it’s expected that at this stage we will be getting a number of android phones with HD display and quad-core processor. In fact, we even saw this handset coming along with the Flare 2.0 and Thunder 2.0 (which we think will come soon too).
The Cherry Mobile Blaze 2.0 has the same processor on the Cherry Mobile Omega HD 2.0 and MyPhone A919i Duo which is the MT6589 1.2GHz quad-core processor. The RAM is still at 1GB and it’s also running on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box. There is a 12-megapixel camera at the back and a 3-megapixel shooter in front.
The only caveat on this handset is its not-so-attractive physical home button – while having 3 on-screen buttons. What’s up with that? In my honest opinion, the phone would look so much better if the physical isn’t there.

The Cherry Mobile Blaze 2.0 is priced competitively at Php9,499 which is just Php500 more than the Omega HD 2.0. The two device is almost identical, but if you fancy carrying a huge phone, then go for this smartphone. Otherwise, go for the OHD 2.0.
