Still hunting for an affordable smartphone with specs that you want? Here’s another choice to consider – the Cherry Mobile Coal.
It’s a dual core Android Jelly Bean smartphone with 3G HSPA+ mobile internet connectivity and a 3.5-inch display. If that sounds good to you, you’ll be happier with its suggested retail price of ₱2,299 only!
Cherry Mobile Coal runs on a 1.0GHz dual core processor from MediaTek and 256MB of RAM only. That might sound weak and small but if all you do is check Facebook and play simple games, its sufficient.
Its 3.5inch screen has an HVGA resolution or 480 x 320 Pixels and doesn’t use an IPS panel. The display looks a ‘little’ pixelated and the colors become washed out when you tilt the device.
Nevertheless, the Cherry Mobile Coal provides a smooth Facebook or web browsing experience with Wi-Fi or 3G data connection. This is the main selling point of this smartphone.

At the back of the Cherry Mobile Coal, there’s a 2MP camera with a single LED flash for occasional picture taking. It also has a VGA front camera for your selfies.
It has 2GB of internal storage with 811MB for your photos, music and videos while the rest is used by the system and reserved for your apps. You can use a 32GB microSD card to expand it though.
Cherry Mobile Coal has a user removable 1,200mAh Li-ion battery and is now available nationwide.
