Along with the launch of the 7-inch quad-core Fusion Bolt tablet, Cherry Mobile likewise announced their latest dual-SIM Android devices, including the Cherry Mobile BURST, which is said to be the best alternative to the highly popular Flare.


The new Cherry Mobile Burst has almost the same specs with those of the Flare except for the processor. You will still get the 4-inch display with an 800×480 pixel resolution, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal storage with microSD slot, and 1500mAh battey. The only difference here is that, this device is equipped with a lower-clocked 1GHz dual-core processor as compared to the Flare’s 1.2GHz dual-core.

However, it tells a completely different story as for its (exterior) design. The Burst has smooth curves on the corners and uses the current 3-button Android layout as opposed to the old 4-button mix.

According to Cherry Mobile, the reason they released an almost similar phone to the Flare is to complement the sales of Flare since its demand was “overwhelming” that supply cannot cope up. As for them, it’s the best alternative to the Flare as it is also price at just Php3,999.
