Local brand Android Phone goes on "Quad-Core Phablet Battle" on 5.7" HD screen. Will they have a mass appeal to Filipinos?
BLAZE 2.0 is upgraded Cherry Mobile BLAZE while another cut from StarMobile DIAMOND is DIAMOND V7.
Both are running on MediaTek Quad-core processor, Android Jelly Bean on 5.7" HD display. This is good for Pinoys who like large screen for games and entertainment.
Below are the comparison of the two.
