Cherry Mobile announces in its Facebook page the availability of Android Jelly Bean update for their most successful phone, the Cherry Mobile Flare. The local fruit company will be servicing users with proof of purchase and warranty card to their service centers nationwide starting June 1! (Check out our Cherry Mobile Flare review here).
The Android Jelly Bean is the 2012 version of the popular mobile OS from Google which sports the Project Butter - an upgrade to UI's responsiveness and sensitivity over Ice Cream Sandwich.
Aside from the buttery-performance, Jelly Bean also includes the following features right off the bat:
Keyboard and Voice Command
I can always say that Android has an edge over Apple with its keyboard software due to smart predictive input and dictionary. With Jelly Bean, the feature has never been this good. But the most important enhancement is that you can do Voice Typing even when you’re offline. This means that no data connection is required, with its performance independent of its speed. Google also taps Knowledge Graph and built-in voice recognizer for this feature.
Camera and Notifications
Jelly Bean brings new interface and gestures in the new camera environment. You can now swipe sideways to access gallery just like what you have in your WP smartphones, swipe left to jump to the picture that you just took and delete pictures by swiping away them off-screen. A revamped notification bar has been conceptualized with a more prominent looking clock. It also allows you to fetch notifications from various apps like Music, Gmail, etc. to be expanded without even opening the app. You can even do actions like +1 in the notification panel.
This new improved search app poses a significant threat to Siri. The native Google search app now has a natural language commands. Google Now, another part of Google Search can show your public transport listings, flight information and sports results just the way you wanted it to be.
So if you're up for the upgrade, be sure to back up your phone before going to service centers to avoid unnecessary data loss. And ofcourse, there's a box for comments below, tell us how the new Jelly Bean is treating you.
