    Paano ba palitan ang Lockscreen Wallpaper ng CM Flare 2X? Hindi ko kasi alam eh… :-(

  • qwerty

    will it lag if i install Go Launcher Ex? thanks! anyway, im planning to buy a flare 2.0 instead of the better specifications of the flare 2x. it’s because i prefer more the design than the RAM, but i do worry about lagging if i install a launcher. thanks again in advance! :)

    • Kevin Lendyll Aquino

      nope it wont… there is a white version of the flare 2x… you might like that one than the 2.0..


        Hi. Sure po bang merong white yung Flare 2x? What branch meron? Thanks!

        • Kevin Lendyll Aquino

          yespo may white version po ang flare 2x….. available in any cherry mobile store….

    • Alcreencia

      Mas maganda po kung Nova launcher mas smooth po sya I tried na po :))

  • jasper

    i have the Flare 2x for a week now. i installed Go Launcher Ex and it works better than the one on my Xperia Arc S…no lag at all on the Flare 2x! one downside i notice is when i use the GO SMS, there’s no prompt which sim you will choose to send the sms if you’re using dual sim.

    to remove the vibrate feature when using the go to language and input, go to Android keyboard settings then untick “vibrate on keypress”

    charging the flare 2x takes ages :(

    performance wise…it’s better than the 2.0…

    • qwerty

      one more thing, can i install the launcher in my sd card? not in my phone’s internal memory?

    • qwerty

      one more thing, can i install the launcher in my sd card? not in my phone’s internal memory?

      • iampoch

        Nope, di pwede. It needs to be in the internal memory

    • google play

      GO SMS was only made for single sim android phones.

      • Natt Cha

        Wrong, it does support dual sim. Check their changelogs. But only to well known brands but some cherry phones are supported with Mediatek chipset, i saw one from a friend.

        • jael24

          i agree with natt

  • mika

    how about disabling the vibration on message alert? can anyone help me pls?

    • Cassidy Calagos

      Punta ka sa messaging tpos settings. :)

      • Karen Corpuz

        wla nman po settings ng vibration pati sa call.

        • xiaoxiao

          vibra fix search mo sa playstore..
          yan gamit ko sa flare ko..

          • jael24

            For Messages and Calls alert

            settings -> sound -> Vibrate when ringing(uncheck)

          • adrian

            i already did though … pero nagbavibrate pa rin sya when a call or sms comes … what should i do?

      • mika

        yah. I already did, but it still has vibration…

  • Al Fonse

    bakit walang option ang flare 2x para disable camera sound. maliban sa option na yan, the best ang performance ng flare 2x

  • Ruselle Cartujano

    pwede ba flare 2.0 pan dubai?tnx

  • Stephen Jay Go Calalang

      • Stephen Jay Go Calalang

        so hindi maganda pang skype ? or ok lng?

        • Neil Anthony Chavez

          Hindi ko pa try thru skype eh. Pero okey na rin siguro, basta during the daytime para clear. Hehehe

  • lyndon

    tsaka nakalagay sa internal memory 1,41gb lang?

    • Ricardo

      1500mAh lng kasi

      • cpu master

        Mas malakas ang quadcore kesa sa dual core, pero ang downside nya, mas malaks din kumain ng power ng battery ang quad core. Dapat dito nilakihan ang capacity ng battery nito like 4000mah…

    • Harold Gene Rubaya

      quadcore kasi yan tapos 1.5k mAh. aasa kapa.

  • Ricardo

    dude kaya nya ang high end games like the one you mentioned above. nga nga ka ano? o eto panyo punas mo sa laway mo

    • astrayasagiri

      since mah only says like an operating time , can be compared to how many liters of gas your tank could hold.
