Cherry Mobile Flare S6

The Cherry Mobile Flare S6 is among the best deals you can get from all the budget smart phones out there. If you are in the look-out for a new Android phone, and your budget is set at just P3,999 then you should definitely check out the Cherry Mobile Flare S6.

Looking back at Cherry Mobile’s history, the Flare-series was one successful lineup of their budget flagships. It has the cheap, affordable price tag but never short on specifications. They are back at it again with the Cherry Mobile Flare S6 flooding the stores shelves this month.

13MP selfie cam

The main selling point for the Cherry Mobile Flare S6, aside from its price tag of just P3,999 is its 13-megapixels selfie camera. That is a 13MP lens on the front-camera. I am pretty sure every one with a camera phone have their own selfie, at least one on their gallery. You can’t blame them, its the easiest way to take quick photos of almost anything with you included. So the Cherry Mobile Flare S6 makes it better with a font-camera that has boosted megapixels.

Yes, I know, its not the numbers of MP that matters in determining a good camera. But still, it is better than the other budget smartphones out there with lower shooting resolution for their front-facing cameras.

Dual-SIM and LTE

It has dual-SIM capabilities, which seems to be the standard for Android phones these days. Very handy for those with more than one SIM cards, they don’t need to carry an extra phone because they can fit 2 SIMs on this one.

The Flare S6 is LTE-ready, and is also 700MHz-capable which is really nice. The 700-MHz band is the latest deployment of LTE-towers in the country. It  means, with the Flare S6, you more coverage for LTE on most areas and it is faster (when you think of network congestion) as the older LTE devices doesn’t have support for this new frequency.

Fingerprint sensor

It could be just a gimmick for some, but this feature, that you can normally see on higher end flagships is on this P3999 phone. You can unlock your phone with your fingerprint, which is cool at the least.

Nougat 7.0

The Flare S6 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat, which is the latest version of Android we can get for non-Google devices.

1.3GHz Quad Core processor

It is equipped with a 1.3GHz Quad Core processor that is capable for a smooth gameplay and day-to-day computing experience. The processor is fast and just at the right benchmark for high performance without the expense of high battery consumption.

5.2″ HD IPS screen

The Cherry Mobile Flare S6 has a 5.2 inches of IPS display. It has HD resolution, not the best display you can get but still not bad on a 5.2″ smart phone. The IPS technology makes it better for the eyes even at just 282ppi. Thinking about its price-point and the other specs it boasts, the screen resolution is the least feat we could complain of.

13MP BSI rear and front camera

The front and rear camera on the Flare S6 is a 13-megapixels shooter. Both with BSI.

16GB ROM and 2GB of RAM

The Flare S6 has 16GB of ROM, from which counts as a base for its internal storage capacity. It sill can be increased with the use of a micro sd card up to 64GB. It also have 2GB of RAM which is just more than enough for mindless multi-tasking and gaming, without ever worrying of running out of RAM.

Other features

The Cherry Mobile Flare S6 has USB Type-C support, it is a feature that is slowly being adapted as the new trend for USB connection on phones. Type-C makes it easier so you will get the plugging right at first try and never miss. It makes charging faster as well.

It has also USB-OTG.

The 2600mAh battery capacity is high enough and will surely last for a day of normal use.


If someone who’s looking to buy a new phone but with very limited budget will ask me for an advice on which phone to pick, I’ll definitely recommend the Cherry Mobile Flare S6. It has the perfect blend of what’s new in smartphone tech and still have a very low price tag of just P3,999.

If you are not coming from another phone with higher resolution / smaller screen (in short, phone with higher ppi) then the average display resolution on the Flare S6 won’t be an issue for you.
