CM Flare, Still the cheapest dual-core smartphone, Hands-on
If we check the CM Flare specs, we will think that the price will fall beyond Php8,000. It’s hard to believe that a smartphone with dual camera, 4-inch IPS touchscreen and Snapdragon dual-core processor has a price of Php3,999.
I spread the good news to my friends and relatives, fortunately, I was able to convinced one of my cousin to buy a CM Flare when I told him about its features and specs. I want to see how good it is and I want to try it myself for review purposes.
CM Flare glass display and plastic case looks premium to me. It has nice icons, bright and clear IPS display, fast internet surfing and video streaming and runs 3D games. Thanks to 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, aside from running different apps and 3D game, it can also do multi-tasking like other high-end phones do.
The 5-megapixel camera can capture sharp images with fast autofocus but it doesn’t have a camera physical button, so there’s no half-press for this phone. Android ver4.0.4 is already came with the device but there is no announcement if it can be upgrade to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
