Cherry Mobile Flare Mate Price is Php 8,999, Complete Specs, Key Features

The latest addition to Cherry Mobile's Flare Premium series is a sleek phablet with a ginormous 6-inch display, making it a perfect device for consumers who love enjoying photo, video, and web content right on their handset -- like myself.

Cherry Mobile Flare Mate

Cherry Mobile Flare Mate pushes the boundaries of how large a phablet can be all while featuring a downright gorgeous design identity - replete with lush metallic accents - as well as a stellar set of technical specifications.

Available in classy Gold hue and donning an official suggested retail price of Php 8,999, CM Flare Mate has a handful of interesting selling points that should make it an enticing upgrade for current entry-level Flare smartphone owners who are finally ready get a more powerful device.

For one, its massive 6-inch Full HD IPS display - as I've said - is a real treat for those who love watching movies on their smartphones and it also makes 3D gaming experience more fun and compelling.

The handset's 64-Bit Octa Core MediaTek MT6753 chipset, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of ROM combo - while not the best that you can get from Cherry Mobile in this price echelon - should still guarantee a noticeably smooth and less-laggy overall mobile experience.

Other notable features including the 16 MegaPixel autofocus camera with BSI sensor and LED flash, 5 MegaPixel selfie cam with BSI sensor, LTE connectivity support, fingerprint sensor - for quickly unlocking the phablet, and the extra-large non-removable 4,000 mAh battery pack definitely contribute to the CM Flare Mate's appeal.

Cherry Mobile Flare Mate

With the new Flare Mate, Cherry Mobile proves that consumers don't have to spend more than Php 10,000 to own a great-looking phablet that sports enough features to deliver an enhanced user experience. While not particularly as wallet-friendly as its siblings in the Flare Premium range, CM Flare Mate - I think - still gives users more value than the amount they shell out for it.
