BATTERY LIFE

Cherry Mobile Flare S7 Plus review

The 3,050mAh battery on the Flare S7 Plus can last around 8 hours of heavy usage. We feel that this amount of battery juice might be too small for devices with 6-inch screen. Fortunately, it has a 5V/2A fast charger and wireless charging as well.

VERDICT

The Cherry Mobile Flare S7 Plus has just set a new standard for the next generation of Cherry Mobile devices. For the price of around 12K pesos, you can get a lot of features such as premium build quality, improved quad-camera system with AI support, USB Type-C, and wireless changing capability.
