The Cherry Mobile Flare S8 is the latest device to join the more popular Cherry Mobile Flare series.
It was released earlier this year alongside the Cherry Mobile Flare S8 Pro and the Flare S8 Plus.
Cherry Mobile Flare s8 Parts;
The Cherry Mobile Flare S8 is a sleek device with a glossy polycarbonate body. On the front is its 6.26-inch HD+ display with a notch up top for its front camera and the headset grill on top.
•On top of the device is a micro-USB port and the 3.5mm audio jack.
•The bottom is a mic and speaker grille, while the volume rocker and power button are placed on the left side
•The Flare S8 is packed with a MediaTek Helio P23 with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. Sure, 32GB internal storage doesn’t sound too big, especially nowadays, but it can be expanded to up to 128GB via microSD. The downside to it all, however, is that you either have a microSD or a second SIM in there.
•Software-The Flare S8 runs on Cherry OS V2.0 Android 9.0 Pie out of the box and it’s one of the lighter skins on top of Android.
•Cherry OS doesn’t have much bloatware. Some of the pre-installed apps include Themes, Game Booster, and FM Radio. Game Booster is pretty nifty because it frees up some hardware load when you’re about to game which helps with performance.
•Overall, the Flare S8 doesn’t feel like an entry-level phone. It has a good size to it and is pretty light as well.
I appreciate that Cherry OS V2.0 is a pretty light addition to Android. The Themes app also provides more customization if the base Cherry OS look just doesn’t cut it for you.
