My office-mate was hunting an affordable Android phone for himself for some months already. So every now and then I would pitch in while he was searching for information online. His first choice was Cherry Mobile Flare since it was indeed a good deal for an Android phone – which you can get for 3,999 PHP ($100).
However, this mobile phone seemed to be never on-stock. If it would be, it would be gone like the wind. Guess too many liked it. Thus, my office mate gave up and tried to look for other mobile phones he could get.
Actually, there are a lot of local Android phones right now, especially because it’s Christmas. Cherry Mobile indeed started the craze but there’s Starmobile’s Astra, Myphone A919 and many others with the almost same specs comparing them to one another.
But in all of these there’s one thing they lack – longer battery life. I told my office-mate that maybe Cloudfone 430x is for him. I’ve mentioned it to him before but we didn’t really pay attention because Cloudfone isn’t really known. One day though, we decided to have a thorough research about it leading to many good feedback.
Unlike the said mobile phones, Cloudfone Thrill 430x is equipped with 768 MB ram as well opposed to the usual 512 MB Ram. It also has 4 GB internal memory (2 GB user accessible) like all these and can also be inserted a micro SD card. Most of all, it has 4160 mAh (battery life) that can last for days even without charging.
I was surprised when my office-mate showed me that he actually bought it. I guess it truly suits him since he’s a heavy gamer (and it’s really awesome for PHP 7,777 ). If you’re going to buy it in cash, that is. It can also be bought through a credit card which will then cost you 8,300 PHP instead.
According to him however, the said discount price is only until December 15th. I wish they would extend! Heehee, or better, they should have another model with even better specs.
