Another nice budget offering from Cherry Mobile, the Cherry Mobile Skyfire 2.0 is a decent upgrade from the original Skyfire: a bigger screen (now with scratch-resistant protection), more powerful processor and camera, bigger RAM, higher battery capacity, and of course, a newer Android version. And for the price of PHP7,999, who can't resist this powerful device!

Also, according to an article from Yahoo! News Philippines, it's a rebranded Karbonn S5 Titanium from India, which cost translates to PHP 9,000. And we're getting it here at 2K lesser!

It will be available next week at Cherry Mobile stores and kiosks and most gadget stores next week. By the way, if you got one, please share your experience using it below. Thank you!
