|Latest Cherry Mobile FLARE S2 features an IPS LCD with On-Cell Touchscreen panel making images closer to top layer of the display, with better color reproduction and lower power consumption. Aside from that, it is equipped with Sony's IMX179 camera sensor, also used by latest Google/LG NEXUS 5 - a quad core Android KitKat smartphone.|
Aside from Cherry Mobile OMEGA Spectrum (P4,999), latest FLARE S2 (an upgrade of FLARE S priced at P4,499) is another affordable quad core Android smartphone beside MyPhone RIO that is priced below P5K giving Pinoy consumers more options to choose from.
In addition, latest SKK Mobile MARIAN V1 quad core could be probably priced at less than P5K. Just for the record, the cheapest quad core Android phones in the market to date based on my list are SKK Mobile GRIFFIN/GRIFFIN 2 (P3,599) and upcoming Cherry Mobile LIFE 2.0 (P3,299)
At less than P5K price range, local mobile brand player already offers quad core gadgets either with large High Definition (HD) screen for gamers or with better camera for photo enthusiasts. So, before buying, better pick the one that will suit you needs, lifestyle and enhances your communication.
