I just found my second favorite Cherry Mobile smartphone – the FLARE S4

Launched in October together with other new FLARE series models, the FLARE S4 stood-out as the most popular among the other products because of its premium features that was outmatched only by its very affordable price of 4,999 Pesos.

There’s a lot of things to like about the new FLARE S4.  Well, for one, the built is so damn sleek!


Just like with Cherry Mobile’s premium smartphone Cosmos S2 and other top branded mobile units, the FLARE S4 is fitted with a chamfered metal frame. The 5 inch HD IPS Display is covered with a layer of scratch resistant Dragon Trail glass protection. The backing is really awesome, the design is somewhat holographic that exudes elegance and sophistication.

But I am not the type that falls in love easily because of the looks and any other outside physical characteristics. Just like in many other things, WHAT YOU SEE IS NOT ALWAYS WHAT YOU GET and so I don’t really JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER.

With that said, let’s take a closer look at what’s on the inside of a FLARE S4!


The FLARE S4 is powered by a MediaTek MT6753 chipset with an OCTA-CORE processor and a Mali-T720 GPU! For a non-techy person like me, this translates to a very decent combination of SPEED (1.3HGz) and POWER (64 bit)!


From the look, finish and features, the FLARE S4 is a lot like the Galaxy Note 3 –  a slightly smaller version of the popular smartphone unit.

The FLARE S4 also runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop with 2GB worth of RAM and a 16GB built-in storage. It’s dual SIM and 4G LTE network capable.

There are really a lot of things to like about this new Cherry Mobile smartphone, but I think most ‘selfie-loving’ Filipinos would be asking about the camera features! The FLARE S4 does not disappoint with a 13 MP rear BSI camera with LED flash and a 5 MP front camera for that perfect ‘selfie’ moments.

Did I mention that it’s only 4,999 pesos?
