Bought A Cherry Mobile Spark TVLast week, I bought my wife a very cheap Android Phone and it's from Cherry Mobile. This particular Android Phone is called Spark TV and I got it for only P2,000 PHP. Cheap right? Well, I thought so too and that's why I bought it for her.
My wife have always wanted an Android Phone but she doesn't want to spend too much money on it. Fortunately, Cherry Mobile reduced the price of Spark TV from P2,699, which was already low for an Android Phone, down to P2,000 PHP.
The price reduction saved me P699 PHP which I used to buy a Leather Case for my Cherry Mobile Flare.

Pros And ConsI'm not very familiar with the Pros and Cons of Cherry Mobile Spark TV because I didn't buy it for myself. I gave it to my wife and she is the one using it. I asked her what she thinks of her new Cheap Android Phone and she gave me the following answers:
- the plastic casing is too slippery
- the battery runs out of charge very quickly
- installing new apps is hard because it looks for an external Micro SD card
- it keeps looking for an Micro SD card
- the screen is not very responsive when touched
- it frequently freezes when playing Candy Crush Saga
- battery died early (replaced with a new one)
- plastic casing looks and feel durable
- very handy
- strong or loud volume
- charges battery quickly
ConclusionCherry Mobile Spark TV is far from perfect but it does what it supposed to do and, even with its minor problems, my wife is very satisfied with it. It's very cheap and, if handled and used properly, it has the potential to last a very long time.
So, if you are looking for your first Cheap Android Phone then why not give Cherry Mobile Spark TV a try. Even if it breaks early, the cheap cost of the unit won't hurt your pockets too much.
