Cherry Mobile has announced the pricing for its Cherry Mobile Razor, and it is a killer. At Php6,499, Cherry Mobile will wipe the floor with its Razor.
With a sleek 7.7 mm profile, a 4.5-inch qHD (540 x 960) display and packing a quad core processor and fast graphics chip, this phone is sure to be a winner.
- Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
- 4.5-inch IPS qHD display (540 x 960) protected by Dragon Trail Glass
- 4 GB internal storage, expandable via a microSD card slot
- 1 GB RAM
- 1.2 GHz quad core MediaTek MT6589 processor
- PowerVR SGX544MP graphics
- 5MP primary camera, autofocus with flash
- VGA front camera
- 1700 mAh battery
Personally, overall I think this is the nicest package Cherry Mobile ever released.
Now, I have seen a lot of comments about the 1700 mAh battery being inadequate. A smaller 4.5-inch display consumes less power, so a 1700 mAh unit on a 4.5-inch phones is about equivalent to a 2000-2100 mAh battery on a 5-inch model. The MediaTek MT6589 is built on more power efficient 28 nanometer technology. This is more power efficient than older MediaTek chipsets and thelow Qualcomm S4 chipset which were based on 45 nanometer technology. So, let's keep an open mind on its battery life, and wait for the reviews.
