Cherry Mobile Flare X Lite Review

The Cherry Mobile Flare X was well-received by the fans as this smartphone packs a specification and a price that is really affordable for its hardware and recently, Cherry Mobile has unveiled the Cherry Mobile Flare X Lite, the lighter and an even more affordable version of the Cherry Mobile Flare X.


Smaller but still good


The Cherry Mobile Flare X Lite is smaller and has a less footprint than the Cherry Mobile Flare X. The Flare X Lite doesn’t have too many gimmicks with its design as this one features a simple plastic body with no nonsense design. Just a simple and working design on a smartphone.


On the front, there are the three capacitive buttons and unfortunately, it isn’t backlit and you would find a hard time using this smartphone when you’re in the dark. Nonetheless, the bezels aren’t that thick which adds to the cleaner look on the smartphone.



At the top is where you can find the 3.5mm jack and also the Micro USB port while the power button and the volume rocker are placed on the right side of the smartphone.


At the back is where you can find the polycarbonate back and also the non-removable battery of the smartphone and unfortunately, there’s only a 2000mAh of battery that doesn’t last that long. The smartphone last only up to less than half a day on average use. Yes, whether you’re heavy on data or not, the Cherry Mobile Flare X Lite will require you with a powerbank.


A great 5-inch display


One of the best features that the Cherry Mobile Flare X Lite have is the Full HD display. Despite having only a P4,999 price tag, Cherry Mobile still managed to fit in a Full HD resolution in its 5-inch display. Yes, that’s 441ppi that’s why the screen is really crisp.


It might not have the best color on its display but for its price, I wouldn’t complain. The smartphone actually has a pretty good display for its price.


It’s a powerful device for its price


The Cherry Mobile Flare X Lite has fit in a MediaTek MT6753 processor with 3GB of RAM. It might not be the latest and greatest MediaTek processor around but for its price of P4,999, this one is pretty great.


The smartphone can handle taxing applications and games without a problem and it doesn’t heat up that much. Another thing to love in here is the stock Android 6.0 Marshmallow inside the smartphone with only a few bloatware compared to the Cherry Mobile Flare X.


Using this smartphone for games won’t be a problem as we were able to play some games including Asphalt 8, Modern Combat 5, and NBA 2k16 without problems but again, the 2000mAh battery might not be enough for you.


A 16-megapixel rear camera


When it comes to pixel count, the Cherry Mobile Flare X Lite has a better 16-megapixel rear camera compared to Cherry Mobile Flare X’s 13-megapixel rear camera. But is the Cherry Mobile Flare X Lite better? Well, it’s actually a hit and miss for me as the Cherry Mobile Flare X Lite tends to shoot better than the Cherry Mobile Flare X sometimes but sometimes, it isn’t


The camera of the Cherry Mobile Flare X Lite requires a decent light to get a decent photo. The output isn’t the best or the sharpest that you can see but it’s actually “ok” for its price. Check out the photos that I took using the smartphone:



Actually, the Cherry Mobile Flare X Lite is a really good smartphone when it comes to performance, display, price, and build, however, the battery of the smartphone is really a dealbreaker as this one only have a 2000mAh of battery. DO I recommend this smartphone? Sure, but only if you only bring your charger or powerbank with you always. But yeah, the Cherry Mobile Flare X Lite is still a good smartphone for me.
