Since I love taking photos, especially when I’m on an adventure or date with Trice, this new smartphone by Cherry Mobile got me stoked!
The Cherry Mobile Flare Selfie is the newest addition to the Cherry Mobile’s Flare Series. Here’s a quick review since I only got this two weeks ago.
What I love about the Cherry Mobile Flare Selfie is the 16MP front camera, which makes it better to take selfies, and the two camera apps included, the Beauty Camera and the Ucamera, which let you tweak your photos fast and easy.
Another key feature of this phone is the fingerprint sensor at the back which also serves as a shutter button when taking photos just by single tapping – and because I have shaky hands, this feature is a great help when taking a selfie.
Similar with the iOS’ minimalist design, Cherry Mobile also used their own launcher called Cherry Launcher, running on Android 5.1 Lollipop. The Flare Selfie also has a dual SIM tray where the SIM 1 slot can also be used either for a micro SIM or microSD card if you want more storage capacity. Both SIM slots are 4G LTE capable.
Since I’m using the Cherry Mobile Flare Selfie as my spare phone for work, I only need one SIM for the Flare Selfie so I opted to use the SIM 1 slot for 32GB microSD – that should be enough for thousands of selfies, right?
Similar with the front camera, the rear camera also has a 16 Megapixel back side-illuminated sensor (BSI), auto-focus and dual LED flash.
The Cherry Mobile Flare Selfie is not only good for photography, this amazing smartphone is also great for gaming and multi-tasking because of its MediaTek 64-bit MT6753 octa-core processor and 3GB RAM.
