Cherry Mobile P1 Quick Review

Are you afraid of taking out your precious and expensive phone when you are in the public? Worry no more, Cherry Mobile have their solution for you - the P1.

The P1 is a phone and a wireless dialer in one, it has a single SIM card slot and it can be connected to your phone via Bluetooth. This means that call, music and message can be accessed to the P1 remotely rather directly from your expensive phone.

 Retail Package

The box is made of regular carton, no special coating or whatsoever. Once opened, you will see the device wrapped in a plastic. Underneath the P1, are the manual and the micro USB type charger which completes the retail package.


Cherry Mobile P1 Front

The front is the busiest part of the phone, it has the 1.77-inch screen with 176x220 pixels, the keypads, the four-way directional control pad and the earpiece grill.

Cherry Mobile P1 Back

The back house the VGA camera and the cover for the compartment of the SIM and the micro SD card. Removing the cover has a learning curve, it is quite to remove it at first but, you will get used to it after a while.

Cherry Mobile P1 Bottom

At the bottom you will see the micro USB port which doubles as the charging port, beside it is the slider switch for Power ON/OFF.

Cherry Mobile P1 Lanyard Eyelet

The lanyard eyelet can be found on the upper right corner. The design is quite stylish and the build quality is good. Honestly, it is more like a toy or an accessory than a phone.


Cherry Mobile P1 Phonebook

In order to use it as a companion phone, you need to pair it first with your desired device via Bluetooth. Once connected you can now view and use the content of that phone to the P1. One function is to access the contacts on the other device, to do so, just go to the Phonebook of P1 and browse to the BT tab.

To call remotely, just dial the number, then press options or the call button and after that choose the BT Call. The call quality between the P1 and the other line is good, both ends can hear each other loud and clear.

Cherry Mobile P1 Messaging

Your phone should have a Bluetooth Message Access Profile in order to work with the P1. I paired several phones like CM Omega XL, CM Cosmos Z2, O+ Imagine, however, the messaging function did not work. I checked if the Android operating system supports BT MAP and I found out that it is, BUT with Android 4.4 KitKat only. The Apple iPhone 4 and above support it also.


The Cherry Mobile P1 is one of the few remote dialer available in the local market. It is highly recommended for people who usually travel using public transports, especially if all the functions are supported by your phone. Remember also that the P1 is more than just a dialer, it is also a stand alone phone.

  26. I have an ASUS ZENFONE 5 paired with a CHERRY P1.

    It works fine. It is able to send and receive sms and make and receive calls.


    -names of contact does NOT show in sms inbox, only number of the contact

    -will not alarm/sound/vibrate/notify for new sms received, only when there is incoming call

    Overall: It is a great decoy phone!
