A few months ago, Cherry Mobile showed us the spec for the Flare S4 Plus, today they released their newest Flare Series, the Cherry Mobile Flare S4 Plus. There are also two phones included in the launch, the Flare 4, Flare S4 and the anticipated Flare S4 Plus.
Unlike the two other phones, the Flare S4 Plus isn’t a bang for buck smartphone. It’s actually a redefined for it’s older brother Flare X, but with premium look and swag.
Stylish Flare S4 Plus
This smartphone is really on different level than Flare X, the metal frame, great bevels on the screen and the superb corners, bezels and back styling.
It is also feels solid and premium, with the price tag of Php 7,999 it would exceed your expectations. The overall build is really great, though no removable batteries because the sealed back of the phone, and you’ll have to choose over two sims in exchange of memory storage.
Spec wise, the Flare X is still the best with it’s 1.7GHz 6752 Octa-core Processor, while the Flare S4 Plus uses a lower clocked 1.3GHz MT6753 Octa-core Processor. Ram is still 3GB, which is good! You will also get Andriod 5.1 onboard, (I’m looking at you Flare X, when will you get an update?)
