Okay let’s begin reviewing this device. Like the other reviews I made, I will rate 1-10 for each highlights that will be mentioned below..
1. Quality and Design
The quality is fine, its thin but not so compact due to the big bezels on the top and bottom.
The design is great, it doesn’t attract fingerprints much because its back cover is made out of synthetic leather.. Its 8 out of 10 for the design.
This device features a 5 Inch HD Display with a resolution of 720X1280. The display is excellent, with 294 ppi you can see the text clear and vivid..
Oh and by the way, i think it has an IPS technology in which noticeable when i tilt the device from a different angle. Its perfect 10 for the Display.
The device runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and it runs fine. Apps that came preinstalled on this device are the Cherry Mobile Services, Kakao Talk, and the outdated Opera Mini Browser. Its 8 out of 10 for the Software.
At first you will think that this is a Mediatek Powered Smartphone, but unfortunately its not, This device is powered by Spreadtrum SC8830 Quad-Core Chipset in which is clocked @ 1.3GHz and partnered with a Mali-400MP GPU, I’m a little disappointed on this because it lags on some games even though it has 1GB of RAM.
I tried playing Clash of Clans on this device, and i noticed that there are lags on the animations.
Based on Antutu Benchmark, this device scores for about 16,888 points.. This device has an 8GB of Internal Storage in which is good because its a unified storage for apps, photos, music, and etc. Its 7 out of 10 for the Hardware.
NOTE: Connecting to the internet using Wi-Fi Connection or Mobile Data Connection depends on your network and location.
I tried connecting to the internet using both methods, and they are working great. Bluetooth sometimes fail when sending files.. Its 8 out of 10 for the Connectivity..
This device has an 8 Megapixel Autofocus Rear Camera and its photo quality is above average.. It has an LED Flash to aid you when taking low-light photos..
The Camera App is Modified one in which features HDR, Slo-mo Video Recording and Time Lapse similar to those of the iPhone. Base on the app this device can record up to 1080p@30fps FullHD Videos.
The device also has a 5 Megapixel Front-facing Camera in which is good on Daylight Condition, and not on low-light condition.. Check out the samples below for the rear and front cameras..
Its 8 out of 10 for the Camera
The battery is one of the downside of this device because its only 1,800mAh similar to the Flare S3 and Flare S3 Octa.. I noticed that the battery quickly drains when using Data Connection.. Based on my tests, the device can last for a day for regular usage (Texting, Calls), and about 5 to 10 hours if your are playing games or using Data Connection..
Its 8 out of 10 for the Battery..
Overall, for the price of P2,999 it’s a good device to use everyday.. So i will rate this 8 out of 10
Unified Internal Storage
Lags when playing Games
Low Battery Capacity
Well, that’s it for my review of the Cherry Mobile Flare S3 Lite. See you again next time for another exciting unboxing and review.. Thank you and God Bless..
