Cherry Mobile has been releasing phones with flair these past few years. The initial launch of the Flare S phones were only the beginning, driving the company toward a new direction in the local phone making scene.
Their latest device, the Cherry Flare S7 Plus steps up a notch in the company’s lineup of smartphones.
The Flare S7 Plus gave us an excellent performance. The screen was smooth and responsive, apps fire up fast, and mobile games like Arena of Valor and PUBG Mobile were lag free. It’s powered with a Mediatek Helio P60, with 2GHz octa-core processor, coupled with 4 gigs of RAM.
The internal storage is not too shabby either, kicking things off with 64 gigs, which is expandable to 256 gigs with a micro SD card.
Cherry Mobile had turned to a modern and trendy design with the Flare S7 Plus. It sports a shiny rear back and boasts a notch display. Compared to anything Cherry has released, the Flare S7 Plus leaps forward several miles in design.
The S7 Plus uses a 16MP+5MP dual camera setup. The images captured were top-notch. Pictures had incredible sharpness and the details were far more impressive than expected. Cherry Mobile is reaching high places with the camera quality and shows how much they understand the need of the best camera available in this competitive mobile industry.
The front camera is impressive as well. Selfies we took were sharp with well-saturated colors and captured almost every detail there from real life. It’s an impressive feat.
Besides the staple security features like fingerprint and PIN codes, the Flare S7 Plus now has face unlock. And we have to say that it works in pretty well. Even with dimmed lighting, the face unlock fires up the phone to life in blazing speed. There hasn’t been a moment where we had to sit back and sigh in frustration, waiting for the phone to open.
The 3000mAh battery life is great. The Mediatek Helios P60 is a good mid-range processor that isn’t power hungry, so you’ll have plenty of hours to spare using the Flare S7 Plus in any day.
If you’ve never taken Cherry Mobile seriously before, now might be the time to think again. The Flare S7 Plus is an impressive smartphone that doesn’t merely aim for local markets but seems to have high ambitions to reach across seas.`
