Our good friends from Cherry Mobile sent us a new phone a couple of weeks ago. Due to my busy schedule, I forgot to unbox it and use it for my travels. Recently I saw Duey of Unbox.ph holding the phone and after being in awe about its gorgeous looks, I regret for forgetting about the phone. So yesterday, I worked on unboxing the Cherry Mobile Flare Y7 LTE and give my first impressions on the phone.

THE UNBOXING VIDEO
Check out our unboxing and first impressions video below:
There’s a reason why I immediately liked the Cherry Mobile Flare Y7 LTE. The sleek design and the black glass at the back makes it appear like a premium phone. The slim profile kinda looks like an iPhone 5.
I’m fine with the placement of the headphone jack on top of the phone. I just find it awkward that they chose to assign the Micro USB port on top instead on the bottom of the phone.
The speaker grille at the bottom.
The Flare Y7 LTE has a 6.2-inch screen display that looks bright and sharp. There’s a notch on top that houses the 5 Megapixel front camera. The chin on the phone bothers me a bit as they should have used it to extend the screen size.
But I can’t seem to put the phone down. It looks really “pogi!” It’s been a while since Cherry Mobile came up with a handsome phone like this. It’s the type of phone that you can even bring to black-tie events!
The glossy back looks like it was made of glass, but it’s actually made of acrylic. It still looks nice and it adds a premium touch on the phone.
Watched a couple of YouTube videos with the Flare Y7 LTE’s YouTube Go app. Even if it’s a watered-down version of the app we all love one, it was still able to play all the videos without any problems. It even gives you an option to download your preferred video settings.
I took a couple of photos with its 13 Megapixel camera and they seem fine so far. Here are the sample photos:
My first impressions on the Cherry Mobile Flare Y7 LTE? It’s handsome looks leaves an impression that Cherry Mobile can still come up with phones that look stunning even at a low price point. We’ll be testing the phone for the next couple of weeks and post our full review.
