I've seen sa site na 1500mAh din ang GEM. Planning to buy either GEM, AMBER or LIFE on monday. But I just wanna ask if can you move the apps you’ve installed to your SD card? kc I’ve read in some blogs na sa CM life hindi na mo moove yung apps sa SD card, all apps are installed in phone / internal memory. I’m after sa apps na pwdeng ma move sa SD card, ayoko kcng mag root

My personal experience:

Bought this phone (Cherry Mobile Gem) last January 13, 2014. It's sulit because it almost has everything except for the camera and the battery, at first use it was very smooth, and no lags, but after I installed apps and put my screen guard it then lags. I sometimes get annoyed because it's hard to unlock my phone since I've got to slide it trice or for the fifth time, it lags whenever I'm unlocking and whenever i press the home icon, but I just press the lock screen then try it again then it just works back like normal. Overall, this is a good phone for me, I don't know for how long because I just had this for like 3 days pa lamang. It's good with apps its camera quality is way better than CM Life and you can move your apps to SD Card.

The camera quality is not the so nice kahit na 5mp. Ang front ok naman basta huwag ka lang against the light. Ang earphones ko ang pangit! Sobra! Hindi ko pa napa change kc nung pina try skin ng sales lady gamit ang earphones ng CM, ang sa FM radio lang, ok naman during that time pero nang itry ko nang lagyan ng mga music ko at itry ang earphones, basag ang music, ang earphones ko nalang sa Nokia ginamit ko, kahit hindi masyadong loud, hindi din compatible kc yung samsung earphones. Pero BTW, bsta sulit siya; esp. GPS, Front and Back Camera, etc...makaka multitask ka.

Sinong may stock rom sa CM Amber. Nagka bootloop ang unit ko

Bong Dela Cruz said...

Maganda matagal din ang battery, malinaw ang cam, dual 3g pa ang sim slot. mas elegant ang face ng amber. the drawback is the gps, walang gps ang amber, but if u dont drive para mag navigator, ok na kahit wala gps, panalo ka naman sa design over life..

GbSb said...

James Sacal said...
