It has Facebook and Twitter apps pre-installed, surprisingly even KakaoTalk is also there (is there an agreement between Cherry Mobile and KakaoTalk?). If you are a social person most problem you are using them, if not it will become an annoying bloatwares for you since you cannot uninstall them.


BATTERY:

I played the Asphalt 7 for more than one hour and 30 minutes straight and the battery percentage dropped from 100% to 7%.

After more than thirty minutes of voice call (screen off), the battery percentage shows that it only consumed 7% of its capacity.


CONCLUSION:

The Cherry Mobile Sonic 2.0 is the best in its price category, no other smartphone can come close to what it could offer - quad core processor, 1GB RAM, OTG support and GLONASS. Its performance is also above expectations, it can play graphics intensive games and even play 1080p videos without any hiccups.

However, its reflective screen and 2-point multi-touch support could be annoying at times. One thing I hope they can fix soon is the issue about the ability to transfer apps to the SD card. Another potential concern is the 1400mAh battery, especially for those who loves playing games. Nevertheless, the Sonic 2.0 deserves a commendation.

  4. Does it get hot easily? And how would its battery life compare to the Flare 2.0 and the Flare 2.1? I tend not to estimate battery life just because of the capacity since other factors may affect it. Thus, I cannot make a solid judgment :)) And I'm afraid the sales clerk at a Cherry Mobile stall couldn't truthfully help me that much at all about product specs.

  5. hmmm... looks like these broadcomm chips arent as power efficient as the mtk6582. 90 plus minutes lang kaya 3d gaming?

  6. its as bad as the msm8225q powered devices. how can this be a cortex-a7 chip?

    ReplyDelete
  7. i would agree... how about video playback? how many hours can it play?

  8. if you look at other flare 2.0 reveiws... 3d gaming is around 1 hour 30 min. but those are with the old a5 processors. this one is weird considering these broadcomm chips are supposedly the newer a7 chips and they only manage the same running time as the flare 2.0. the flare s from what i have read, can managed 3-4 hours of 3d gaming, but is running on mediatek chips.

    sir, maybe you can redo the test after the battery has been properly calibrated so we can confirm this? thank you.
