Cherry Mobile Burst Specs, Price – 4-inch IPS Display, 1GHz Dual-core CPU, ICS

Cherry Mobile Burst Specs, Price – 4-inch IPS Display, 1GHz Dual-core CPU, ICS

| On 05, Feb 2013

Aside from the new Titan, a successor to the Cherry Mobile Flare is also spotted. Dubbed as the Cherry Mobile Burst, this device seem to feature identical specifications with the Flare and interestingly, the same price tag of Php3,999. So the question is: Will Cherry Mobile Burst replace the Flare?

Cherry Mobile Flare is arguably the most successful local smartphone to date but although it did managed to get the spotlight, lots of controversies aroused during its reign. For one, the software bugs on the auto-rotate, missing FM radio app, and g-sensor issue ignited tons of complaints from slightly unsatisfied Flare users. But thankfully, Cherry Mobile addressed all of those problems through a software update. What I’m pointing out here is simple – if this will replace the Cherry Mobile Flare on their sub-Php4k level, then I think the reason is that they want to remove the negative thoughts that were built beside the Flare.

Moving on to the Cherry Mobile Burst, it looks like they want to wipe out all those complaints and start over again with a new handset. It’s very hard to replicate such a huge success, but given the right price and specs, it’ll be a no brainer. And yes, that’s what they did with the Burst. This looks like a smash hit in the making, indeed.

Cherry Mobile Burst Specs and Features

Cherry Mobile Burst will flaunt a 4-inch WVGA IPS display that’s large enough for the casual pinoys who are not so fond of playing games in their smartphone. At a 233 ppi, it will render a crisp and beautiful display unlike other CM android phones who have significantly bigger screen but with the same WVGA resolution. Also, given its small size, it is also very convenient to use and will fit in the pocket seamlessly.

Slightly downgraded 1GHz dual-core CPU, 512MB RAM, ICS

A 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor will run the show and I bet the standard 512MB RAM will be its companion. It is 200MHz short when compared to Flare, but that won’t really hurt the performance that much. This processor will be enough to handle most HD games that you’ll throw at it and though it’ll have some glitches (based on other 1GHz dual-core smartphones), it won’t be very irritating and it will not ruin the whole gaming experience.  As for the basic smartphone functions, Cherry Mobile Burst will be smooth as long as you don’t bombard it with tons of widgets that will eat up the memory considerably.

Connectivity: 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS

Cherry Mobile Burst runs on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich just like its siblings (except Omega). Other features such as 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS are also included. In terms of camera, it will use a 5-megapixel rear camera with flash and a VGA (to be confirmed) front facing camera. All the typical android goodies are here so that’s really nice since you’ll be getting a fully-packed smartphone at cheap price.

Battery capacity: Still unknown

The most crucial downfall of the Flare, the battery, will be up for a test on the Cherry Mobile Burst. We all know how Flare users suffered from their mediocre battery (probably because they use it too much) but 1500mAh is still a fair amount actually. We’re hoping that Cherry Mobile addressed the problem this time by picking up an android phone with a higher battery capacity. Anything more than 2000mAh would be great and it will surely skyrocket the sales of this device if that will be the case. However, since it’s just Php3,999, we can’t really expect much.

So that’s it for now, folks. We’ll just update you for any information on the Cherry Mobile Burst. Do you think it’s time to replace the Flare? Hit the comments section and let us know what you think!

  • Guest

    tanginang 512 mb na yan

    • Vince

      Seriously, for that price range, dapat given na ung 512 mb RAM.
      Ano gusto mo, 2 gb RAM on a budget phone? Maybe after 2-3 years but not now.

  • dranreb

    • John

  • michaeljohn13

  • allen

    hindi sya IPS, kabibili ko lang kanina. tsk tsk mali nanaman nakalagay sa specs.

    • HW_dev

      wala ka kasing alam sa display technology kaya mo nasabing hindi IPS yan… which is kab0b0han. before mag comment alamin muna ang technology na nagamit.

      • mark

        ikaw na magaling :p

      • tony

        bakit, ips nga ba talaga?

      • PusangBato

  • lols

    • pRince Alvin

      tama ka jan…ganyan talaga sa CM hindi match ung SPECS sa box sa UNIT!

    • santiagoruel13

      hay naman ,,rom diba is the memory of the phone,

      divide it by 2 parts,, the 1st 1 gb is for the apps that you’re going to install…
      the 2nd onde,, is for the user-memory,, songs,, pics.

      in terms of ram,, 512 mb.. only 200mb user available again,,

      the other half is used again by the phone in terms of apps like android processs,,, camera,, messaging,,

      hay,, mukhang wala ka pang idea ng ram ah,, try mo yung s2 1gb ram pero pag tiningnan mo ang user ram,, 700 lang,, dahil yung iba nakokon sume na ng system,,, hahahahah..

      • bangus

        engot mo naman… 3 parts ang rom.. system… cache,,, at user data.. at ang user data lng ang usable.. kasama na dun macoconsume ang lahat ng nisave sa phone memory,, ang ram… kalahati lng ng 512mb ang available.. at nasa 100mb plus nln ang free.. dahel naconsume na ng os….

  • pRince Alvin

    RAM lang PROBLEM pero all in all maganda….I really enjoy playing TEMPLE RUN here.and Super FAZZT ang BROWSING…

    • http://www.noypigeeks.com/ NoypiGeeks

      Thanks for sharing!

    • JR

      • Edwin Felipe

        temple run always lag kahit konti lang apps mo b cuz of 342mb ram only di makalaro ng maayus kahit anong games…..

        • Jhorell

          ganyan din naging problema ko sa burst kaya yung akin pinalitan ko ng flare ayun problem solved ang sarap n mag laro ng temple run wala ng lag

      • pRince Alvin

        it depend kung ilan ang naka open na application pag marami naka open LAG talaga un pero pag wala nmn ibang nag ra-run na apps hindi nmn masiadong lag ok na ok nga!! saka I suggest wag kang mag dadownload ng mga application na automatic kahit naka close nag ra-run parin LIKE nung AVG ANTI VIRUS,BATTERY SAVER…yan mga nakaka LAG yan sa mga GAMES….malakas kasi ang hatak nian sa RAM!!

        • pRince Alvin

          UNTIL now ok parin ang CM BURST q…walang pinagbago!!
          ang PROBLEM q lang talaga is ung CASE nia ang PROTECTOR ang hirap maka hanap…wala pa kasi hindi pa sia masiadong sikat..march lang kasi nilabas itong bagong model ng CHERRY MOBILE!!

      • Jhorell

        ma lag ang burst s lahat ng temple run nag try ako temple run 1,2,brave, at oz lahat nag lalag nde ka makalaro ng maayos take note naka root na yung burst ko s flare wala ako nging problema

  • Ein

    To those who are wondering why Burst only has 2GB of internal storage and 300+MB of RAM. It’s because of the operating system. I’m not sure where I heard it but it’s true.

  • andy

    bakit nagloloko kapag nakakonect sa pc. yun bang nagsheshake ang mga app. ganun din minsan kapag ginagamit ko while charging. at yung battery masyado mabilis mag low. kung minsan naghahang pa.

    problem ko lang sa unit ko CM burst ay SOBRANG HINA NG SOUND OUTPUT nya pag nakakabit ang HEADSET….

  • Contentment

    Been using it for two days now. And I am satisfied so far. I’m not the type who complains much. As they say, for its price, it’s a steal. Display is crisp. Sound quality is above average. I installed Juice Defender to lengthen the battery usage. Haven’t tested the camera on low light conditions though.

  • jm

    • Thanatos

      Because 512MB lang po ang RAM ng BURST, di niya kaya isupport ung mga heavy games like CCS. Mostly needs 1GB ram, malaki kasi ang kinakain sa ram. May burst din po ako dati. Ganyan din po ang problem. :)

    pano po irecover ang cm burst na na-overcharge? plz help..

  • jen

    Used this phone for about 6 months or more (Sun plan). Big problem sa RAM, naglalag especially kung mahilig ka sa apps like instagram chu chu or mahilig maglagay ng widgets. I don’t also use the music player kasi nagsiskip yung mga kanta. Napakabagal kahit na 8gb na yung external memory ko and even if I had deleted my fave apps, ganun pa rin. Flare is better I think, or wag na lang Cherry Mobile. Hehe…very affordable nga pero I’m not getting what I’ve paid for. Boo!

  • Ronalyn Villanueva

    Helo po please help po. need ko comment nyo? bakit po nag aautomatic back ang cherry mobile burst ? kunwari kapag nag click ako ng application kapag mag baback lang ako. super back ang nangyayari napupunta na sa wallpaper. gets nyo po ba?
