Cherry Mobile Titan TV Hands-On Preview

Cherry Mobile Titan TV Hands-On Preview

| On 12, Feb 2013

When the first leaks of the Burst, Thunder and Titan first came out, it was the Titan TV that easily caught most people’s attention. The Cherry Mobile Titan TV is a phablet of epic proportions, with a screen that is 6 inches in size. It’s really odd and a lot of people might actually think that it would look ridiculous.

Surely a screen of that size should suck the battery dry in no time, right? Well, the Cherry Mobile Titan TV has that covered with a 2,500mAh battery. Not only that, but it is also the first locally branded phone to hit the market with 1GB of RAM.

What’s in the Box?

Box contents of Cherry Mobile Titan TV

So what comes with the box? Well of course, you get the massive Cherry Mobile Titan TV itself, along with a free flip cover that sticks onto the back cover of the phone. No, it’s not a smart cover like the one that came with the original Titan, but at least the phone comes with some sort of protection. Then there’s the Cherry Mobile Titan TV’s antenna, which surprisingly does not come built into the phone but instead comes as an accessory separate from the phone itself. What’s great about the antenna is that it also doubles as a sleek capacitive stylus that can be attached via the lanyard hole on the Titan TV’s flip cover. Finally, there’s the typical headset, charger and USB cable, along with a minimal user manual that no one is likely to read.

The Design

Cherry-Mobile-Titan-TV-Price-Specs

The Cherry Mobile Titan TV that I got has a black face and white back cover. The design from the front is pretty generic. It’s just a rounded rectangle with the capacitive navigation buttons along the bottom and the ear piece, front-facing camera and sensors along the top. From the back and sides though, there’s a lot more to appreciate. The black against white contrasts nicely, and while it may not be the thinnest phone, it’s long enough that it still appears quite sleek.

Apps and Games for Titan TV

First Impressions of the Cherry Mobile Titan TV

I’ve only had the Cherry Mobile Titan TV for a couple of days now, but despite that, there are a few things that should be pointed out about the phone. First, the chipset and basic spec configuration is almost exactly the same as the original Cherry Mobile Titan (check the full review HERE). The only difference is the much-improved camera, the obviously larger screen and analog TV capability. Next is a weird battery issue where the phone issues a warning when the battery starts getting hot, which usually happens during system-intensive processes like gaming. It can be a bit annoying since it never really got as hot as my Cherry Mobile Blaze did, but I’ll live with that kind of warning so at least I know if I’m putting too much strain on the phone. I still don’t like it though.

CM-Titan-TV-Reviews

If you’re looking for a multimedia device first and phone second, the Cherry Mobile Titan TV feels like a good option so far. I’ll continue to use it as my primary phone in the coming days until I have all that I need for my full review, which I’ll be posting on my personal blog. If you’re itching to get one, the Titan TV is already rolling out to CM stores for a price of Php6,999. I’m not sure which ones have the Cherry Mobile Titan TV available yet, but I’ve heard that you can already get it SM Cubao, SM Megamall and SM North Edsa.

  • Mir. Big Panda

    Hi, thanks for the initial impressions. When you say the specs of the Titan TV & Titan are nearly the same, is it the same case for the memory? Is it 1GB or 512MB?

    thanks in advance

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

      Titan TV has 1GB of RAM against the 512MB of RAM of the original Titan.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1190651792 Jm Balicano

      They both have the same 1Ghz Mediatek 6577 CPU and PowerVR SGX531 GPU. 1Gb RAN kay Titan TV. Mararamdaman mo lang naman yung extra RAM ng Titan TV pag madameng apps nakabukas ang nagmumultitasking ka na.

      • Mr. Big Panda

        Ah thanks for clarifying :)

      • evo28

        tama

  • http://www.facebook.com/Monkeydoggie Edgar Eduardo

    anu mas okey, etong Titan TV or Starmobile flirt or CM Omega or CM Thunder? Thanks!

    • http://www.facebook.com/ferdinand.marte Ferdinand Marte

      CM Blaze!

    • http://www.facebook.com/dennicecuico Dennice Blando Cuico

      if gamer ka titan tv—> among your choices titan tv lang ang 1gb ram the rest 512mb

    • http://www.facebook.com/nathaniel.butron Nathaniel Butron

      Starmobile Flirt

    • Evo28

      TTV (Titan TV) is the best! :-)

  • bashiki

    is the 1GB RAM evident on the titan tv? :) nice and helpful review!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1190651792 Jm Balicano

      yeah. I tried playing Nova 3, which is a really graphically intensive game. The frame rates were playable, but just barely. But if compared to the Blaze which had the same chipset with only 512mb of RAM, the Blaze’s frame rates were unplayable.

  • atalapfafi

    parehas lang ba ang flipcase ng titan tv at titan w500?

        • Coy

    • Shan

      Try to download Du Battery. It works well. Maybe you had many windows still open. Or your brightness/screen time out.

    • eulae

      Normal lang naman na mabilis maubos ang bat kahit hindi mo gamitin due to background apps running. Try mo mag-DL ng mga tasker apps. Wag mo on yung mga sync and stuff.. Yung sa akin, pag hindi masyado ginagamit, tipong normal na call, text and konti games, it can last me for 2 days halos.

  • kim

    . San po makakabili ng titantv d2 said Manila o Q.C ……????? ツ

  • Eula

    More than one month na sa akin ang Titan TV ko, so far, I’m loving it.. Battery life is dependent on the user.. Syempre, if wala ka ng ginawa buong maghapon kundi maglaro or manood, talagang mauubos agad ang bat mo.. Sa ‘kin, natagal sya for more than a day, may laro and music na yun pagpauwi from work, and a movie pagkauwi.. For the Phone Storage and Internal Storage, you just have to know how to maximize these.. I also have a 32gb external MC so I’m good with regard to the storage. I also downloaded a cache cleaner so it helped me save more space sa internal storage ko.. Sa RAM naman, since I have Go Launcher, madali lang i-terminate lahat ng ongoing processes na hindi naman talaga kelangan. You can also download a separate app if you wish pero for me, enough na ang Go.. Sa Camera, I love it.. Though the pictures are not like of a digicam’s, but for an 8mp at 7K price, it’s a already a good buy. But I also downloaded a third party app camera kasi, aside from the editing features, mas maganda nga nalabas ang kulay and na-minimize yung redish sides.. It’s just a matter of a little tweak here and there and you’ll love the Titan TV.. — IMO

    • yatz

      ask ko lang poh.. mabilis ba talaga uminit ung bandang top part ng Titan TV sa may earphone.. ung sakin kc basta inopen ko LCD at nagsend aq ng message eh umiinit n cya. di nmn nghhang ung unit but mainit cya. pls respo.// tnx

      • mclovin

        normal lang yan sa 6-inch LCD phone. try mo adjust to decrease yung brightness nya. the brighter the screen, the hotter it gets.

      • eulae

        Hindi naman sobrang mainit. Yung normal lang kasi nga gumagamit ka ng battery life.. Pagnagtatagal sa laro or call, don, medyo mainit pero hindi naman sobra. Hindi alarming, kumbaga.

  • jayson

    saan po b nka2bili ng battery ng titan TV….?…. tenx 4 helping me….

  • http://www.facebook.com/lynsison08 Lyn Sison

    ask ko lang po kung maganda pang call and text ang titan or iba pa po na CM kasi sabi ng brother ko ndi daw po ayos ang pang call and text ng CM.. Thank you po and God bless.. :)

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

      You can try Cherry Mobile Titan if this is too big for you.

    • carl

      cherry mobile is really great for texting and calling. all their phones are cool. its a budget friendly and value phone with high end features usually found on the big named manufacturers..

  • dhon

    Does it have the same feature of titan that you can use either sim for 3g?

    • Dennis Charles Gimeno

      yes you can change either sim for 3g using the stock firmware of ICS for Titan TV. when I updated to Jelly bean, the feature was gone. :)

  • PhoneGuru102

    Mura na yan sa PASKO XD

  • http://www.facebook.com/anne.m.salazar.9 Anne Margarette Salazar

    I just bought a TITAN TV yesterday but my problem is that when I charge it, it displays “charging 10%”, after 2 hrs it’s still 10%. Charged it the whole night 10pm to 6am still it remained at 10%. When I unplugged the charger it displayed “Battery Low”. When I tried charging it on USB mode in my net book, it was then the percentage of charging increased. Could there be a problem on the plug or something? I’m thinking of returning it to the store where I bought it.

    • http://www.facebook.com/lawrence.isleta Lawrence Isleta

      Hi Anne, ano ang feedback ng Cherry Mobile sa issue ng phone mo?

  • Junerell ALcantara

    ayos sana ang titan pro ang dali ma lowbat may suggestion ba kayo na magtatagal ang battery…

    • Dennis Charles Gimeno

      you can use go task manager and set it to auto kill apps everytime you turn your screen off. This way hindi na kakain ng battery ung mga background apps mo na naiwan mo.

  • Gracie

    ayaw po i-read yung sd card ng titan tv, anu po ba dapat gawin? Thanks!

    • Dennis Charles Gimeno

      may sinaksak ka po ba na external SD card? kung meron, try mo tanggalin and re insert. kung internal SD naman ung tinutukoy mo, go to settings, storage, tapos click mount SD card sa pinaka baba ng list

  • micco

    got my new titan tv yesterday ^^ ok rin pala to SOBRA. un nga lng mejo nannibago p hahah

  • jhanz

    ask ko lng .. mgnda b tlga tong titan t.v ..?? ska my free na b tlga yan n flip cover. ??

    • John Love

      yup, the flip cover is free.

  • mtimbol

    Its terrible as a phone. Napaka hina ng audio. Have trouble when I’m
    joined in to conference calls whether using the headphones or the
    speaker phones.

  • Rodel Gache

    paano ba mai rotate ang Titan TV while using youtube…

    • Dennis Charles Gimeno

      enable auto rotation, and while buffering video on your youtube app, rotate your phone and the video will follow your rotation.

  • Anon

    Ayaw magsync ng twitter.

    • Dennis Charles Gimeno

      mag update ka ng twitter app.

  • Anonymous

    Battery life sucks. Twitter and Instagram won’t sync. WiFi does not easily connect and would take hours before the connectivity actually connects. Apps also become defective after a few uses. Stylus easily breaks and touch screen moves by itself. Auto-rotate also is defective. Not a good choice for a smart phone.

    • John Love

      If you want longer battery life, turn off wifi, gps, data connection, and bluetooth when not in use.
      I don’t know why you have that problem in wifi, it is possible your wifi unit is not properly configured. Although I noticed an improvement in re-connection from idle after I have the Roxas Blvd office upgrade the os to jelly bean.
      Screen response and the frequency of ‘mis taps’ improved after upgrading the os to jelly bean.

    • Dennis Charles Gimeno

      hmm. that’s weird.. My titan TV has a very accurate accelerometer, and also has a very responsive touch screen. My battery life is decent, just make sure that you don’t have applications running on background when you’re not using it. Android won’t auto kill your apps since it has 1gb RAM, which is very good for multitasking. I suggest you install go task manager and set it to auto kill apps every time you turn off your screen. Plus I suggest you return the device to where you bought it if you think the accelerometer is malfunctioning.

  • odlopoel

    buti sakin walang problema yung titan tv ko…. hehe

  • Rein14

    pwede pa din ba magamit tong TITAN TV kahit nsa dubai na?!,need a response po from anyone n nka2alam..

  • crenoy

    akala ko 4gb of internal memory..bakit 513mb lang yung internal memory ko saka ano ibig sabihin nito isa sa phone memory na 2.93gb ang free space…okay naman ang ram ko na 979mb sa titan tv…kakabili kulang pag saturday parang nag hihinanyang aq dahil sa akala ko ay 4gb yung internal memory yun pala 513mb lang…. may alam ba kayo nito???

  • crenoy

    pa help naman po…d ko alam ano ibigsabihin nito kasi jellybean na po ito..ang alam ko lang ay sa gingerbread version lang…nalilito aq sa internal memory at saka sa phone memory..d ko alam para saan ba ang phone memory.. help po…….sa may alam po…tnx…

    • John Love

      imho
      Jellybean siya kapag pina upgrade mo ang os sa Roxas Blvd office.
      Gamitin mo ang file manager na app para ma check mo ang status ng memory, pwede ka mag download ‘play store’ kapag walang file manager ang unit mo.

      • crenoy

        ito po iyong ibig sabihin q sa tanong….nalilito kasi aq..alam ko yung jellybean version pero yung memory q nagduda aq… tanong q po ito po…akala ko 4gb of internal memory..bakit 513mb lang yung internal memory ko saka ano ibig sabihin nito isa sa phone memory na 2.93gb ang free space…okay naman ang ram ko na 979mb sa titan tv…kakabili kulang pag saturday parang nag hihinanyang aq dahil sa akala ko ay 4gb yung internal memory yun pala 513mb lang…. may alam ba kayo nito???

        • Dennis Charles Gimeno

          ah, ung partition lng po ung reason nyan. initially, you have 4gb hardware. and then nag partition si cherry and hinati nya ung memory into 2 parts, first is for application, and second will act as an external SD card just in case na hindi ka bumili ng extra memory card.

          • crenoy

            ahhhh…ganon ba…..salamat at naiintindihan q na…salamat po..

          • kokoy

            pde ba baguhin yung partition ng memory? para lumaki naman yung internal. limited lang kasi yung naiinstall kapag 512mb lang e..

      • crenoy

        2.93gb lang phone storage q..bakit hindi 4gb or 3.80++gb ang phone memory…dapat hindi nila nilagay na 4gb ang specs if may pre-loaded apps na cya..dapat sa actual..ayaw ko rin e root ito kasi wala akong tiwala…

  • John Love

    Voice calls are very clear.
