Kindly share your reviews.

Is it worth the cost for these phones?

Everything depends on usage and care. It really doesn't matter if its a china phone or something which is made from the future, kung di ka marunong mag alaga ng gamit. Everything would seem to be of low quality.

BTW, I'm using Cherry Mobile P1, and kahit ipan tanching ko ata to, pwede to

Good to know that.

Anyone using Qwerty cherry mobiles? Mabilis ba ang response time?

Most china phones have 1-2 second delays when choosing on the menu. Hassle sa mabibilis pumindot.

ang importante rito yung after-sales support..like 1 year warranty and such.. yung talagang may official service center

ok naman cguro yung warranty nito since maraming cel shops na nagpoprovide nito.

Pero need din na makita yung features nito before buying. Kulang kulang yung info sa website nila.

Anyone using Q6?

I got a cherry D21 a few days ago, dual sim, dual active, long battery life, but I notice a lag time of about 1 second when I go to the menus.

Nope, may phobia na ako sa pag update ng firmware.
The last time na nag update ako ng firmware sa nokia 2730, nasira ang sim card, ayaw na mag tunog ang n2730 kapag may incoming messages.

Torque/Cherry Mobile Phones are cheap when compared to nokias.
They are not cheap when compared to Samsung/LG.
They are exorbitant when compared to non-ntc approved China phones.

Bought a torque D80 dual sim/dual standby fone last monday.. 65k-color CSTN (not TFT so medyo malabo) LCD, with FM radio, torch light, WAP, etc... loud sound coming from the external speaker at the back (in fact, too loud na kapag full volume to the point na distorted na yung output)..with slot for micro-SD card (up to 2 gb) BUT the phone is NOT hot-swappable.. I find the keypad somewhat flimsy & slippery..

best thing about this phone? first, the price..I was able to purchase it for a measly 1,650 pesos only in Tutuban (take note, brand new, with 1 year warranty ito since it is NTC registered; its listed price is 1.9K to 2K sa mga major malls like SM)..package includes the phone, battery, charger, warranty card PLUS two (2) FREEBIES: a USB card reader for a micro-SD card, and a silicon Fabwatch.. hehehe, not bad for a 1.65K..

peace!

Nice reviews.

Maganda ba pagkadual sim ng mga phones? I mean, both sims working and no network errors?

Where in Tutuban did you bought this? They are selling it at Hello store at SM CYberzone for 1699 with no freebies.
I would like to get this for my pldt landline plus sim and my Sun sim.

I'm also interested in buying one of these phones specifically the Torque DQ500.
San sa tutuban yung mura ang mga ganitong phones bro?

I want to get one because I don't want to bring two phones. Okay pa yung mga features niya for the price

@RockmanZero: ok naman pagka-dual sim nya..simultaneously active..haven't encountered any network errors so far..though napansin ko mas mahina signal ng smart kesa sa sun..I wondered whether it was because of the sim placement, so pinagpalit ko sila (smart sim went to slot 1 while the sun sim now went to slot 2), ganun talaga mas mahina ng 1-2bars ang smart signal..both sim's stk menu (smart menu & sun xpress menu) appear and may be used without turning off the phone..

@orthodoc: 2nd floor of the main mall..I think the name of the store is FFF station, near the bridge that links the mall with Robinson's department store..this is not a stand-alone muslim store..may sariling pwesto sa gilid..sya yung may Smart Money reloading station as well as wholesaler of prepaid cards..they sell also cherry mobile phones..

@MetroManilasexual: pre, may bad review sa isang thread regarding the Torque DQ500..pero if you still wanna buy one dun sa Tutuban main mall..yung FFF stationbaka may freebies ka pa (for the DQ500 ata extra batteries..cheaper din ata ng mga 50-100 pesos



additional review re: Torque D80

1) you can use a Nokia battery (BL-5C? not sure, basta yung battery nung nokia 1110, 1110i, or 1112) instead of the Torque battery..sa fully-charged Torque battery kasi, the battery life lasts for around 4 days WITHOUT heavy texting and calls..so I'm assuming that an authentic nokia battery will last longer..


2)finally figured out the damn LED light and volume control for the music player..for the LED flashlight/handlight just press and hold the navi-key button..as for the music player's volume control..the lowermost right button increases the volume while the lowermost left one decreases it..though music can be played even if the phone's in standby the volume can be adjusted ONLY when you're in the music player..

3)there are three themes that can be rotated automatically according to preference (hourly, daily, monthly, etc.)

4)contrary to what was specified in the brochures, this phone does not play mp4 files (video files taken by another phone and copied on the this phone's micro SD)..mga GIF files lang ang pinaka-animated pics na ma-i-p-play nito..

5)you can use mp3's stored in the micro-SD as ringtones and message tones (?), though you have to import them first (copy it form micro-SD to the LIMITED phone memory)..

6)ringtones and message tones can be customized to reflect the sim cards inserted..e.g. I have different tones each for smart sim's incoming call & incoming text and sun's incoming call & incoming text..the built-in tones sound authentic (parang mp3's na, hindi MIDI)..using the electric and rap tone (my turntable scratches pa, hehe)

so all things considered do I still consider this phone a good buy? You betcha, though I'm mulling on selling this one to purchase the Torque D95 and make a review of it..anyone willing to buy this phone from me for the same price of 1.65K (all freebies included, even the plastic bag) just text me (cel #'s in my profile)
