Cherry Mobile Life Hands On Review

The Cherry Mobile Life is one of so many phones from Cherry Mobile being launched in time for the holidays. At P2,999 SRP you’ll get modest specs which is absolutely a real value for money.

Cherry Mobile Life specs:

  • 1.3GHz dual core MediaTek MT6572 processor
  • Mali 400 graphics
  • 512MB RAM
  • 4GB internal storage expandable via MicroSD up to 32GB
  • 4-inch WVGA display (480 x 800 pixels) 233 ppi
  • dual sim, dual standby
  • 5 megapixel rear facing camera with LED flash
  • VGA front facing camera
  • 3G/HSPA+, WiFi, WiFi hotspot, Bluetooth 3.0
  • GPS, A-GPS
  • 1,500 mAh battery
  • Android 4.2 Jellybean
  • SRP: P2,999

Hardware and Build Quality:

What I admire about Cherry Mobile is their drive to improve the build quality of their products to further erase their negative reputation they had in the past. The device is absolutely well built with no creaks and hollow feel.

Display:

The 4-inch display is quite dimmed. I had problems using it on direct sunlight even in 100% brightness. Another gripe I had it the lack of light sensor which automatically adjusts the brightness depending on different conditions. The WVGA is adequate enough for reading texts, viewing pictures, playing games and watching videos when using indoors.

Gaming and Performance:

I was a surprised that Cherry Mobile used the MediaTek MT6572 which a newer chipset. Performance was generally smooth and fluid when doing basic tasks – opening, closing and switching between apps. I am also happy to report that the phone is also good for gaming. Plants vs Zombies 2 is a big game that hogs memory. At first I thought that the chipset with the limited 512MB RAM won’t run the game smoothly. It was as surprise to see it running smoothly! Impressive!

Camera:

Guys, I made a boo boo. I took pictures from the phone’s 5 megapixel camera but when I sold the phone yesterday, I forgot to transfer the pictures to my my pc. Anyway, pictures are decent on good lighting conditions but the true weakness of the camera is noticeable when taking pictures on dark places. The flash doesn’t help either to improve the picture quality.

Here are some of the same shots. These were taken in good lighting conditions.

Battery:

I find the 1,500 mAh battery impressive! The phone lasted for 15 hours with light to moderate usage. On heavy usage (intense gaming, watching videos, calls and texts), I got around 8 to 9 hours of usage with the brightness set to 80%.

Verdict:

For me, this the best entry level smartphone today. I recommend this to those who are going to own an Android device for the first time. I was really impressed with the overall performance and gaming.
