The Cherry Mobile Zoom made quite a stir when it first appeared unannounced at some of the company’s stores due to its massive 4000mAh battery for a price tag of ₱3,999.00.
It also offers a 5 inch HD screen, plenty of RAM at 3GB, 4G LTE connectivity and 13 Megapixel camera. There’s even a pink color option for those who are after a chic look.
There’s a major setback for the Cherry Mobile Zoom though – it uses the MediaTek MT6735M chipset. Yes, it has a quad core CPU but its maximum speed is merely 1.0GHz. This makes playing resource intensive games laggy.
However, this has a good effect on battery life. It’s enough for keeping the user interface smooth while using as little power as possible making the phone last more than a day on a single charge.
Hence, the Cherry Mobile Zoom is the perfect smartphone for non-gamers who put battery life as the number one priority.

It’s now available in most Cherry Mobile outlets nationwide.
