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.

Cherry Mobile Blaze 2.0 Specs

  • Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean
  • Dual SIM, Dual Standby

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.

What do you guys think about this new release from Cherry Mobile? Are you willing to shell out Php9,499 for this android phone? Or would you rather wait for others such as the Flare 2.0 and Thunder 2.0? Let us know in the comments!

  • Ralph OHD2

    This is nice! wishing i could have waited a week longer. just bought OHD2 last week, still satisfied withwhat ive got!

    • Pat Anthony Bongolan

      hd gaming experience in the ohd 2.0? how it is?

      • KennyKen

        I have one…super smooth … kokonti lang yung lag …Aliens vs Predator, Dead Trigger, NbA 2k13, Reckless Racing etc etc parang high-end na yung framerate..galeng…nag struggle lang siya sa NFS most wanted pero tolerable pa rin yung stutter niya…I don’t know if that has something to do with my class 4 micro sd ….ang kagandahan ng phone na to, DERETSO na yung apps sa SD card, di gaya ng MyPhone A919i na kelangan pang i root

        Definitely recommended bro!

        • Pat Anthony Bongolan

          nice sir . i’m planning to buy ohd 2.0 but now that cherry mobile releases cm blaze 2.0 mas nahirapan ako kung ano pipiliin kasi ako trip ko talaga gaming at camera .pero good na good na rin talaga ako saa ohd 2.0 sa lahat ng reviews . if you’ll rate the ohd 2.0 1 – 10 what will you give? oh wait . another question. how about the camera? are you satisfied that it is 12megapixel in the back and 2 on the front? sorry for too many question :D

          • KennyKen

            Given the price point…9/10..kasi Dragontrail glass na siya at may screen protector pang naka patong sa ibabaw, wala yun sa MyPhone,.Camera is surprisingly good as well, right on par with my iPhone 4 na bihira kong gamitin…tsaka may anti-shake/image stabilization din siya sa low-light conditions so no problem sa mga blurred shots!

          • Pat Anthony Bongolan

            on last :) are you satisfied on the phone?an of course the price? worth it ba?

          • KennyKen

            yep…bili na sa suking tindahan :-D

          • Pat Anthony Bongolan

            yey! XD

          • Ralph OHD2

            like kennyken said, sobrang sulit si ohd2. just like using s3 or note2. graphics,cam,gameplay,smoothness 9.5/10..battery is also good 1 day din tumatagal like any branded smartphones

  • KennyKen

    We WANT a 1080p !!!!

  • KennyKen

    Those virtual buttons sure waste a lot of screen space, parang tablet na yung lay-out eh..imbes na 5.7 inches parang 5.3 inches na lang when viewing web pages yiiiikes!

    Sa HD movies no big deal naman yan

    • TVC – BAMPIRA+

      If you want to have bigger screen for graphics-intensive games, try this new phone.

    • jjnjj

      Ano mas maganda? CM flare or CM hyper??

    • zyle

      Wrong…. virtual buttons disappear when you start playing or watching a movie.

      Yeah, mas maganda tlga kung pumatong ng 3k mAh ang batt.

  • patamski

    • Zyle

      Blaze 2.0 ka na tol. Iba tlga kapag 5.7 inch ang laki tapos mas malaki yung antutu score nun kesa ohd2.0.

  • marianne

    anong pwedeng alternate battery for ohd 2.0? yung mas malaking mah. pwede ba battery ng samsung?

  • pumipili

    ang laki pla ng blaze 2.0… nakita ko d2 sa baguio ngaung 2014 na 7,999 nlng sia so hopefully im planning to buy this if papayagan ako ng mama ko kasi meron din nmng cruize na 5.3 inch pero ayaw daw ang candy crush at temple run 2, malabo din daw kasi ang baba ng pixels at naglalag daw kasi single core lng ang cruize.. SA MGA BLAZE 2.0 USERS IS THIS WORTH THE PRICE PO?

  • The blaze 2.0 user

    meron akong blaze 2.0 hd… super worth it yung prize, gumagana sha na kasing bilis ng samsung… HD ung screen, di ko nga makita yung pixels actually…
