Cheap Dual-Core Android Phones Priced at P2,999 or Less for 2014

Latest Cherry Mobile LIFE Android phone is powered by 1.3 GHz CPU, 512 MB RAM, running on Android 4.2 JB OS on 4.0" Capacitive Display - Will it replace the old "Dual Core ng BAYAN - FLARE?

Imagine every Filipino owns a dual core Android phone for call and text, capable of connecting on social media networks and taking your memorable moments with dual cameras for a price of P2,999 or less.

Last May 2013, MediaTek announced their latest dual core MT6572 SoC using the same 28nm process technology from quad core MT6589 SoC. Both are power efficient Cortex-A7 processor and HSPA+ capable with 4 in 1 combo connectivity (WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and FM Radio).

I hope StarMobile, Cloudfone, Torque, Arc Mobile, Huawei, ZTE and Lenovo will released their affordable dual core Android gadgets sooner below P3K.

GbSb said...

Paulo Carr said...

ask ko lang po if wat is the best??life amber or gem??

GbSb said...

I prefer Cherry Mobile GEM po, latest released kasi siya saka before ka bumili check mo na din sila lahat kasi iba-iba design nila.

Anonymous said...

ano po GPU sa Gem?

GbSb said...

I have to confirm if MALI 400 po, peru probably yan din po, the same ng Cherry Mobile LIFE at AMBER.

Anonymous said...

I have an amber so far its good for gaming, browsing and calling and texting

GbSb said...

Thanks for feedback about Cherry Mobile AMBER.

Anonymous said...

In CM Gem, can you move your apps to SD card without rooting? kc sa Life daw hindi pwd?

Anonymous said...

Which is better po kaya cherry mobile jelly or jade?

GbSb said...

Depende po sa budget mo, mas mahal ng P300 yung CM Jelly peru 5MP ang camera niya at Bluetooth 4.0 saka iba-iba ang colors. If your a girl, I recommend Cherry Mobile Jelly para sayo.
