Cherry Mobile Life

Cherry Mobile just announced via their Facebook page their new budget phone, the Cherry Mobile LIFE. The announcement is unfortunately light on details, but we do know the following specs we got from a Cherry Mobile rep.

Cherry Mobile Life Specs

  • 4″ screen, but no word yet on the resolution and the type of screen (don’t count on it being AMOLED or anything special, though)
  • 1.3ghz dual core processor with Mali 400 GPU
  • 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage
  • 5MP back camera + 0.3MP front camera
  • HSPA+ support
  • Dual-SIM
  • GPS
  • FM Radio
  • Bluetooth v3.0
  • Android Jellybean 4.2

That’s a pretty awesome specs lineup, especially given its price point of a whopping PHP 2,999.00. It seems bent on toppling their own Flare series for bang-for-the-buck king. The price point price definitely pits it against the recently announced MyPhone Agua Rain 3G. Basing it on the specs above, the Cherry Mobile LIFE certainly trumps it not just in the screen size department but in other aspects as well, although the competition’s amusing anti-theft technology (really, who here hasn’t thought of activating it just for kicks? :-) ) is still a good draw.

UPDATE: Check out our full review of Cherry Mobile Life!

Unfortunately, availability is also nowhere in sight, so we’ll have to wait for further announcements. Cherry Mobile really does know how to build up suspense and anticipation, do they? In fact, their Facebook announcement lacked certain details, such as the RAM and ROM. Even now, the announcement post is abuzz with speculations, indicating fervent anticipation from consumers. I don’t blame them. Personally, I’m curious to know how the phone would handle Jellybean with the modest RAM. Anyone excited on this baby?

  1. 512mb is just enough unless you want to do multiple task in your phone. Smoothness of the phone’s UI and games depends on the CPU and GPU. Mali 400 is definitely a treat in this price range, together with its very efficient CPU. Tres mil, dati 2nd hand na Nokia N79 lang nabibili ko dito,hehe

  2. only issue i have is with the camera. CM Flare’s camera is better than CM Life even though they are both tagged as 5MP.

    in terms of apps and gaming, can’t complain. got 11500 score in Antutu and was able to play Iron Man 3 and Despicable Me/Minion Rush smoothly on this phone.

    the phone is actually quite light…. the back plastic is not nice though, bulging blue plastic

    1. Hindi po kasi talaga 5MP ang CM Life, kahit tignan nyo po ang OEM nya it’s only 3.2MP ^_^…Interpolated lang po yung 5MP, #MarketingStrategy

  3. Nag karoon na ako cm life ngaun,,,,maganda xa kaso medyo mahina pagdating sa camera nya,,,pero mas mataas antutu score nya sa flare 2.0,,,,,
    share lang

  4. May I ask if the Mali 400 GPU is better than Flare 1’s Adreno 203 for Gaming, planning to get this for my sister this x-mas.

    1. Frankly, we’re curious as well :-) hopefully, we’d be able to secure a review unit. This would be interesting :-)

      1. Definitely interested, now I finally know what to buy for my sister, we we’re about to buy the 2x, good thing this phone came out b4 we purchased a phone :D

    2. Better talaga! Talo nga ng PowerVRSGX531 ng phone ko ung 3D graphics ng
      Adreno203, sa 2D lang xa panalo, kaya kung specs wise ka, at mas gamer
      ka, mas prefer mo ito kaysa sa Flare 2.0, epic fail naman ung quad core
      na un ultimo NBA2k13 lag parin, masabi lang na quad core eh, #marketingstrategy , panu processor lang kasi ung nagbago
      pero ung GPU ganun pa rin, Adreno 203 pa rin -___-, tignan mo sa Rain3G no lags talaga ang
      NBA2k13 kasi Mali-400 ang GPU, for sure magiging hit din tong phone na
      to

      1. Even better if they add some freebies w/ this device b4 x-mas, can’t wait to see the review for gaming performance/ui testing

  5. Inb4 faggots who would say “only 512 ram. Panget” tangna para sa ganyang specs sa ganyang presyo, tiba tiba ka na

      1. xD ayos na yang 512 ram.. kya nang laruin ung mga HD games . mas maloloko ka kpag 256ram lng yan,, mabubuhay ka sa temple run at plants v.s zombies,, hanggang dun k lng

    1. edi bumili kayu ng 1GB…pinipilit ba kayu?
      Madapaka!! this looks really good!
      ok nman ba quality ng CM? gusto ko itry…para sa siblings ko sana
