Cherry Mobile Amethyst Offers Low-end Specs, P2,299 Price

Cherry Mobile continues to offer us affordable phones, but that doesn’t mean they are good phones by any means.  After all, we always get what we pay for. Cherry Mobile’s new “precious stones” line-up appears to be low-end and affordable.  If you have budgetary constraints, you might want to watch out for the phones in this line-up.


One of the recently announced handset is the Cherry Mobile Amethyst, a 3.5-inch Android 4.2 phone with a 1GHz dual-core processor, a rather small 2GB internal storage, and 256MB of RAM. These specs are too basic but then again, if you only need a phone and do not worry if it will run apps properly, you can look at the Cherry Mobile Amethyst.  Otherwise, look elsewhere and save your money for something better.

Here are the main specs of the Cherry Mobile Amethyst.
