Another new smartphone is the Cherry Mobile Flare S5 Plus.
As the name suggests, it’s a bigger sibling of the Flare S5. But there’s a significant difference in the screen quality, as the Plus model features a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS screen. There’s also a larger internal storage and battery capacity.
Other than that, it remains the same. It’s running on an octa-core chipset with 3GB of RAM and support for the 700MHz band.
