Flare 2X – Cheap Quad Core with Better Specs

Cherry Mobile Flare 2X is set to disrupt the local smartphone market with its powerhouse specs but cheap price (well, sort of).

If Cherry Mobile Flare 2.0 disappointed you with its limited RAM, Flare 2X will satisfy your RAM needs use as much apps and games as you want.

Cherry Mobile Flare 2X Performance

Cherry Mobile Flare 2X Antutu Benchmark ScoreCherry Mobile Flare 2X is powered by the same processor in Flare 2.0 – a 1.2GHz quad core MSM8225Q from Qualcomm. It’s graphics processor is Adreno 203 and RAM is at 1GB – that’s double the amount of RAM in Flare 2.0.

It comes with a slightly customized Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with custom icons and Cherry Mobile apps. Internal storage is at 4GB with around 1.5GB available for photos and other files.

Battey for Flare 2X comes at the usual 1,500 mAh standard Lithium-ion cell. That might worry us a bit.

Cherry Mobile Flare 2X Design, Display and Camera

Flare 2X has three capacitive buttons at front and a brushed plastic back cover.

It’s 4-inch IPS display comes at 800 x 480 pixels or 233 pixels per inch. That’s the same as the original Flare that shows high quality graphics and hopefully, a wider viewing angle.
