Cherry Mobile Blaze – Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Smartphone with 8 MP Autofocus Camera

Is Cherry Mobile Titan too big for you? Is Cherry Mobile Flare‘s 5 MP camera not enough for your photo capturing needs?

If your answers in the above questions are both yes, then you have to look at Cherry Mobile Blaze. Blaze is smaller than Titan but with the same processing power and camera. It is slightly bigger than Flare but with a better graphics processing unit and camera too.

Cherry Mobile Blaze Android 4.1 Jelly Bean Update Now Available

Cherry Mobile Blaze

Cherry Mobile Blaze received an update to Jelly Bean on February 2, 2013. For those who already have Cherry Mobile Blaze with the original Android Ice Cream Sandwich, you can have the update at any Cherry Mobile service center nationwide.

Jelly Bean pumps up a lot of good stuff into Cherry Mobile Blaze like smoother operation (thanks to project Butter) and smarter notification among others.

Cherry Mobile Blaze with 1 GHz Dual Core Processor and 512 MB of RAM

Cherry Mobile Blaze operates using a dual core MT6577 processor clocked at 1 GHz. This is coupled with a 512 MB of RAM to handle several apps and services running at the same time.

I’m a bit disappointed with the RAM of Cherry Mobile. A 1 GB or even 700+ MB of RAM would have been better.

Cherry Mobile Blaze Graphics Performance and Display Specs

Blaze has a 4.7 inch display with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels or 208 pixels per inch.

This means that the not so large display of Cherry Mobile Blaze will have stunning pictures and graphics but not at all angles since it does not have IPS display. Texts will appear crisp and clear since it has a dense number of pixels in its screen.

Many observed that Blaze is well suited for gaming. It is powered by a PowerVR SGX531 GPU which is a very good graphics processing unit for 3D games on smartphones. It can even play Need for Speed Most Wanted!

Cherry Mobile Blaze Camera Performance

Blaze is better than Flare when it comes to the camera. Blaze has an 8 Megapixel Autofocus camera at the back with an LED flash.

The camera captures good quality pictures when outside with the bright sunlight. However, it does not have the same quality that you would expect with a digital camera with same pixel count.

The front facing camera is a VGA one with a pixel count of 0.3 MP. It’s not that much but it is satisfactory for basic video calling.

Cherry Mobile Blaze Connectivity Features and Sensors

Blaze has the basic features you will find in most Android phones when it comes to connectivity.

It can connect to and act as a WiFi hotspot, transfer and receive files via Bluetooth, access data connection in 3G and EDGE GPRS. It is also equiped with GPS for tracking your location.

Blaze also has sensors for proximity, gyro or auto rotation and ambient light for automatic screen brightness.

Cherry Mobile Blaze Battery and Price

Blaze is equipped with a 1500 mAh battery pack. Many were disappointed with this but Cherry Mobile made up for the small battery capacity by offering Power Banks.

Cherry Mobile Blaze currently sells at ₱ 6,499.00 at Cherry Mobile outlets and mobile phone stores across the country.
