Cherry Mobile Selfie Two Review

When I had the Cherry Mobile Selfie Two almost a month ago for review, I easily had a first impression of it as the bit upgraded version of Cherry Mobile Flare S6 mainly having the same processor plus dual front flash but is it? Here's our review



On the first boot, I am bit surprised that the smartphone has almost stock Android Nougat compared to FS6 with Cherry OS. From it's looks, the Php 1,000 difference is justified for it's better physical quality (one of my relatives also had a wow factor on it). The 2.5D Glass is also a good addition. On navigation with Mediatek MT6737 quad-core processor, you can navigate this phone for light and bit moderate tasks


On battery, I expected that it will do better versus FS6 with 3,000 mAh battery inside. On video battery rundown test, it survived on 12 hours and 47 minutes on battery saver mode. In the number of days that I used this as a daily driver, I usually survive this in a whole day with around 5 hours of screen on time and mixed usage. Charging with it's 5V 1.5 A charger took me at over 2 hours.



For the benchmarks, here are the numbers and screenshots:


On gaming with it's SoC, you really have to lower down the graphics of our usual games for testing including Asphalt 8 which is at the lowest graphics possible for better playing.

On camera, the selfie camera is definitely an upgrade over the FS6 as I can do better in low light situations thanks to it's dual front flash plus it has f/2.0 aperture. The color accuracy is bit better. The UI though is almost the same (in case that you are also owning an FS6 at the same time). The blur feature though is not that perfect at times so it is a trial and error based on my own experience.

On extras, there is a bug that I noticed which is not stranger to me in some of the smartphones that I previously features. There were some times when the phone will just unlock inside my pocket even I already enabled my fingerprint sensor.

Cherry Mobile Selfie Two is priced Php 1,000 more than the Flare S6 at Php 4,999. The target market for this for now is those who are still having diffuculty to find an FS6 (according to some Cherry Mobile officials, the demand is really high in both offline and online channels) plus wanted to have a phone still with almost stock OS and can pay extra for better front flash and better selfies for that target budget. The additional Php 1,000 is worth it (plus to mention of 14% more battery) and better physical looks (but I am not saying the FS6's build is bad). Cherry Mobile Selfie Two for me is 4 out of 5 rating.
