Specs-wise, it’s evident that the Titan TV reigned supreme. It won in terms of RAM, camera, and screen size. However, it is the most “expensive” among the three although the price differences are not that far from each other.

If you noticed, we highlighted or bolded the Thunder/Titan TV’s MediaTek MT6577 instead of Flare’s Qualcomm MSM8225 S4. Because although the latter has “faster” clock speed (number-wise), the former still performs better according to benchmarks. But the speed difference can not be noticed though for general usage.

So which phone is for you?

Go for the Flare if your budget is just limited (and not willing to spend beyond its amount) and if large screens are not your thing.

Choose Thunder if you’re willing to shell out 1,000 pesos and want to have the best display. You can also check out our Cherry Mobile Thunder review to know more about this device.

Buy the Titan TV if you can afford it for Php6,999 and prefer large/massive screens (plus TV and stylus.
