Cherry Mobile Burst 2.0 has an unmistakable design or form factor that makes it very comfortable to hold – a tapered body towards the bottom. The side view photo above clearly shows that.
Burst 2.0 also has a back cover that seems to be divided into two parts. But it’s just one piece of plastic with a largely matte finish and a small shiny portion at the top. The camera and LED flash is located at the shiny part.
One thing that I noticed with the back cover is that it’s very hard to remove. There’s a small space at the top side where you can pry the cover but it’s difficult to do so.
Cherry Mobile Burst 2.0 might turn you off when you try to use its camera. It’s a 5 Megapixel shooter that can give you average quality photos.
However, since Burst 2.0 is running Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, it has some nice features in its camera app including multi-angle shots and HDR.
The Cherry Mobile Burst 2.0 that I played with is a black one but inside its box are white colored accessories. There’s a white charger and white earphones. A user manual is also present (not that you’ll really read it).
