Cherry Mobile Desire R8 Plus First Look, Benchmarks, Camera Samples

It is still a hard time for this blog to do at least a hands-on directly of products from Cherry Mobile. Aside from one of their dealers that I met recently, big thanks also to Lazada Philippines as they helped me out to put up an assessment on one of the brand's newest on their Desire R series.

Here's is Cherry Mobile Desire R7 which is a Mediatek MT6737-powered device priced at Php 5,999. For the rest of the specs, you can check my previous article here. So here is the box.


The front, back, top, bottom, left and right views of the said smartphone. On the body itself, I admit that the phone does not look cheap for the given price tag. The thickness of the removable back cover is just right just to give some sturdiness to hold. The display is a-ok too.





On the UI, it is as light on the navigation on their lightly customized Android Nougat. If there is one downer so far on the device is the lack of OTG support unlike their Flare P1 Plus

On benchmarks, it gave us over 30,000+ on Antutu and it has those four basic sensors to work with. Sorry, no gyro on this one



On the camera, the main camera has f/2.2 aperture and f/2.8 aperture for the selfie camera. Quite weird that the main shooter produced better pic compared to the previous smartphone that I tested at the Lazada office which is the Doogee Mix in auto mode. My selfie looks good for social media. 


Image processing speeds are at average and the camera UI - almost no changes compared on what I saw on the Flare P1 Plus

Their Flare P1 Plus costs a thousand peso more which is fine for it's dual main camera set-up. Desire R7 Plus has slight disadvantage in processing power compared to the more affordable Cherry Mobile Flare 5 or S5 (sometimes, they go at Php 3,999). If to compare with the two mentioned Flare devices, the only main advantage that I am seeing on the Desire R7 Plus is having a more updated Android OS and a good camera for the price.
