Cherry Mobile has been the most aggressive PH brand when it comes to entry-level budget smartphones. It has been consistent with its pace in providing various options in the local market. Its latest is the Cherry Mobile Nova 2 which offers consumers variety of features that promotes market perception of affordability and dependability with its fair  and legit performance.

The latest offering highlights beefed-up features like 1.2GHz Quad-core Cortex A-7 processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 MSM8212 chipset. Out of the box, it'll be powered by the Android Jelly Bean operating system. It also has Adreno 302 GPU and a gigabyte of RAM for your phone’s multitasking needs.

The phone may not be in your league when you’re looking for larger screen with better quality display. But the 4-inch IPS display of CM Nova is a performer. Likewise, the battery may also have a hiccup powering the IPS screen and quad-core CPU with its 1500mAh rating. 

On the brighter side, this new device can give you fair quality photos with its 8MP main shooter equipped with LED flash. A decent internal memory storage of 4 gigabytes with microSD support of up to 32 gigabytes will also support your needs for bigger memory. Connectivity-wise, the phone is 3G/HSPA+ capable and has WiFi and Bluetooth.

You can get all these features for an affordable price of Php3,899. This is a hundred peso cheaper than MyPhone Rio Lite which offers better battery, larger screen size but with lower RAM and main camera sensor. The choice really depends on how you can trade-off one feature to another.
