|The Battle of Dual-Core Android Phones: MyPhone A898 DUO vs Cherry Mobile TITAN|
This is the battle of latest Dual-Core Android Phones from our local mobile brands and which is better between the two?
Cherry Mobile latest release dual-core Android phones includes FLARE and TITAN. Their difference includes CPU, screen size and battery capacity. TITAN have stunning large screen at 5.0" capacitive display, 2350 mAh battery capacity and running on MT6577 1 GHz dual-core processor compared to FLARE.
I choose Cherry Mobile W500 TITAN to duel with MyPhone A898 DUO because they are both running on the same MediaTek latest MT6577 1 Ghz dual-core processor design for sub $200 or P8,000 smartphones. Also, released of MyPhone A898 DUO had been anticipated since last month but became a little disappointment with the release of non 3G and single 5MP camera A878 DUO.
For whatever reason they had delayed the release of MyPhone A898 DUO for 1 month, I know for sure that they do it for better. One or more reasons I see is better design, fixing of software or hardware bugs and market timing.
So, which do you think have the better design, performance and mass appeal between the two?

Battery: Cherry Mobile W500 TITAN have high capacity 2350 mAH battery compared to 1800 mAh A898 DUO.
Overall Cherry Mobile W500 is really a TITAN in terms of screen and battery specs. With TITAN large screen, it needs a high battery capacity due to it's high power consumption compared to smaller screens. So, it's natural that screen size and battery capacity should go together.
One more thing, both have 480 x 800 resolution and which do you think have better pixels per inch (ppi) or pixel density? After my computation, MyPhone A898 DUO have 216.97 ppi compared to Cherry Mobile TITAN 186.59 ppi.
Higher pixel per inch or ppi is better and a good quality photograph requires a 300 ppi. On the opposite, lower ppi means a pixelated images (you can see individual pixels) which is not good. For comparison, both Apple iPhone 4 and iPhone 5 have 326 ppi.
I think a better design for TITAN would be a 4.3" screen with 2350 mAh battery or with 5.0" screen at higher resolution.
So pick your choice, both have almost the same design and specs and the I think the battle between them are quality, mass appeal and brand loyalty.
