As what we can see above, both devices are closely related not only on their price point, but as well most of their specification. Please be reminded that the Razor is Single SIM while the Thunder 2.0 is Dual SIM Dual Standby capable, this difference could be a make or break for some. The Thunder 2.0 has the plus point on the battery department having 2100mAh removable battery.
The Razor as the name suggest has a thin profile of 7.7mm, making it one of the thinnest Android phone by local brands and also boast a Dragon Trail glass for its screen protection. The most important factor is that its innards are balanced by having a 1GB of RAM ensuring that it can perform multitasking without any hiccups.
The Cherry Mobile's strategy can compare to Samsung wherein they released several devices that are very similar to one another not only in terms of specification but also in terms of pricing. This similarity can lead to cannibalization, while this may seem to be a negative point it can also be a great tool in meeting consumer demand. Time can only tell if this strategy will be successful or not for Cherry Mobile.
