Cherry Mobile W300 – 4-inch Capacitive Display, 1GHz Processor, 256MB RAM for only Php2,999

Cherry Mobile W300 – 4-inch Capacitive Display, 1GHz Processor, 256MB RAM for only Php2,999

| On 16, Nov 2012

Cherry Mobile is really on a roll right now. After the release of the Cherry Mobile Titan and Cherry Mobile Flare, they now have another ultra-budget android phone named as Cherry Mobile W300. As the name suggests, this one is just like the W100 and it only have several differences.

Cherry Mobile W300 Price

The details of this new device are still not officially announced by Cherry Mobile but our writer, JM Balicano, stumbled upon this device on a mall which the first set of units were delivered. Needless to say, this is the exclusive first look of this budget android phone. At first glance, it somehow resembles the CM Flare but it can be easily distinguished because of the Gingerbread OS.

For only Php2,999, the Cherry Mobile W300 still brings a good set of specs on the table. It is powered by a 1GHz single core processor, 512MB of RAM, and runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread. It’s not really bad if you’ll ask me, especially with this kind of price. And I hate to say it but this move will definitely piss some Candy TV owners. Although if you prefer the mobile TV, the Candy TV is the one that suits you.

“We will release a review of the Cherry Mobile W300 in the next few weeks.”

The reason that helped Cherry Mobile to lower the price of the Cherry Mobile W300 is the lack of 3G. Pretty dissappointing? No, not really. A lot of android users there don’t need 3G so that drawback is relative to the user. Also, the 4-inch screen will give you a little more room to work with than that of the CM W100. Oh, the W300 doesn’t have an IPS display unlike the W100 so it will have limited viewing angles when compared to the latter.

Cherry Mobile W300 Specs

Cherry-Mobile-W300-Review

So is the Cherry Mobile W300 for you? Well, you might want to hold back until next week because we will be releasing a video review of the Cherry Mobile W300.

  • glenn

    mukha naman po ba syang matibay ? :)

    • http://twitter.com/JMBalicano JM Balicano

      Yep. Mas solid yung materials compared to the W100. Yun nga lang, MIPS-based ang processor. Konti lang ang compatible games. Kahit Angry Birds, ayaw mag-run -_-

      • glenn

        im planning to buy my first android phone.pinagpipilian ko kasi kung CM w300 ba or w100 yung bibilhin ko anu po bang mas maganda ?

        • http://twitter.com/JMBalicano JM Balicano

          Depends kung gamer ka or you like browsing the internet kahit on the go. Yung W100, may 3G and is capable of playing some of the more graphically challenging games like Shadowgun, Dead Trigger and Agent Dash.

          The big screen and higher resolution are the only advantages of the W300. MIPS CPU kasi ang chipset, kaya hindi compatible ang karamihan ng games. I tried Dead Trigger, Agent Dash, Angry Birds Star Wars, and Angry Birds. Non would play. Fruit Dash lang gumana out of the games I tested. Apps like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook should all work fine though, pero 2G lang ang supported mobile network.

          Kung gusto mo ng complete Android experience, go for the W100.

          • glenn

            salamat ng marami siguro w100 na lang yung bibilhin ko .. :)

          • glenn

            pwede makapaglaro ng Dead trigger,shadowgun at agent dash sa w100 kahit hindi rooted ?

          • http://twitter.com/JMBalicano JM Balicano

            Yes. Controls are a little cramped kc maliit lang ang screen, pero okay naman ang framerates. Very playable.

          • Azhdy

            at the moment sir im playing temple run at start medyo laggy sya pero after a min ok na and playable na im still testing it (playing at the meantime) post ako ulit for other games

          • http://twitter.com/JMBalicano JM Balicano

            Please do post the kind of games you are able to play, as well as those you could not install or would not run after installing. I’m still finishing up the Flare review and will be moving on to the W300 review so any input will be much appreciated. Thanks!

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

      Yes. It’s now out in the market.

      • Jeje

        Sir ano anong games po kinaya ng w300? may full review po ba kayo niyo?salamat sir

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

          HI, its not yet done. We’re currently working on the Flare and Titan review. But if you’ll ask me, it looks like the W100 is a better choice.

        • disqus_D8evCsMMA7

          yung ibang versions ng angry birds at yung may mga low memorry function games lang pero yung may mga matataas na graphics kahit isa sa mga na download ko walang gumna wahaha

  • Mostly

    How about the Sensors naman po ? na Try nyo na po ba sya sa mga Racing game like NFS and Temple Run which means gnagamitan ng Accelerometer?

    • http://twitter.com/JMBalicano JM Balicano

      Temple Run and Temple Run: Brave would install, but would not play. This is likely because of the MIPS chipset that a lot of games can’t seem to run on.

    • disqus_D8evCsMMA7

      na try ko yung censors nya sa ibang bagay sa ibang race games pero sa temple run di pa di kasi gumagana temple run saka yung nfs nmn di ko pa na download kasi may bayad wahahaha

  • http://www.facebook.com/nino.madriaga.1 Rej Madriaga

    kung lagyan nyo po ng chainfire 3D.. baka mag run ung mga graphic intensive games.

  • MAC

    Bumili aq last week nitong w300,,, ayaw mag run ng temple run pati instagram,,, bluetooth nagloloko din,,, chambahan ang pagttransfer ng file from my laptop to this phone or from w300 to my laptop… same experience din pag sa ibang phone, chambahan ang pagttransfer ng files… nag auto screenshot kahit wala kng kiniclick, mkikita mo n lng sa gallery mo ung mga screenshots… nagloloko din mnsan ung wifi connectivity nia,,, check nio ung battery status nio,,, upper portion nun, distorted ung graphics… nag auto shutdown,,, screen size lang talaga panlaban nitong w300,,, kelangan ko kc ng screen n malaki for my pds and ebooks,,, may mga apps n compatible nmn sa phone n to pero pag nirun mo ayaw,,, then sa nag lalag n xia madalas… well, wat can un expect from 2999 n android celphone,,, pwede ng pagtyagaan then pag may budget nmn kyo, buy a better phone from known manufacturers… pero compared to my galaxy y, bet ko to pagdating sa pds at documents editting… galaxy young, mas stable connectivity nia when it comes to bluetooth and wifi… depende na din snyo kung san nio ggmitin,,, high end nga phone m, nde mo nmn namamaximize pwede niang gmitin, wala ring kwenta…

    • joe_gamer

      meron na ako nito.. cherry mobile w300.. kasi naubusan ako ng stock sa flare.. ang masasabi ko sa w300.. ayos lang naman… mabilis ang connection.. wala akong naging problema sa wifi nya…very smooth ang pag surf sa web.. pati pag transfer ng files from pc to my w300… pati games ayos lang dn.. nakapag laro narin ako ng hd game.. tulad gta3 sa w300 ko.. hindi ko alam kung pano mo ginagamit yang w300 mo.. pero para sa akin.. maganda ang pag kagawa at pag ka presyo ng w300…

    • http://www.facebook.com/kelisitian25 Christian RamosDelos Santos Li

      ganyan ung una kong nabili sad to say nanakaw. im telling you some applications na games hindi magfunctions lalo na ung temple run.. especially ung mga malalaki ang megabites nya hindi kaya ng phone.. kasi ung resolution. mas maganda ung w100 kasi 3g sya. ung gprs ng w300 capable lang sa smart sim wala kasing data connection settings sa w300 not like w100 meron sya. kahit ano network gamit mo ok sya..

    • elaidyah

  • mailez

    wala po kayong video review ng w300? cause i’m planning to buy. gift ko sa sarili ko this christmas. First android ko sya if ever.

    • aaa

      not good on youtube(verry slow). video recording, bad sound. unable to root. my phone better.

  • Faye

    It’s nice except for the 170 MB usable storage, from 512 MB ROM. I know usually hindi exact yung nakukuhang storage sa mga device. Pero masyadong malayo kasi yung 170 sa 512 e. :/ Yung ibang phones naman, sinasabi kung ano yung usable storage. Pero false advertising, I must say. Very deceiving.

    Pwede pa kaya palitan (to another CM unit, like Flare/Flame)? Just bought it yesterday. Nagtatanong ako ng detailed specs pero the sales clerks aren’t much help. Basic apps pa lang nalalagay ko, puno na. Did transfer some apps sa sdcard pero… :/

  • mariz
