Local mobile company Cherry Mobile has just added a new Android phone in their ever-growing smartphone lineup: the Cherry Mobile Snap. It's a 3.5-incher phone running on Gingerbread with a very affordable price tag of PHP 2,499. More specs after the jump.

3.5" capacitive touch screen
1GHz single-core processor

2MP rear camera
WiFi b/g/n
dual-sim capability
Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread
PRICE: PHP 2,499

Another price-defying phone from Cherry Mobile, Snap is a nice choice for first time Android users. It has a capable processor, expandable memory, and a dual-sim capability which Pinoys love.

On the other hand, what makes Snap underwhelming is its small screen, which may be a problem for those who have big fingers; the 2MP camera which can only give low-resolution photos; and the Android version, which unfortunately is still in Gingerbread. Could have been better if its at least in ICS or much better in Jellybean. So you're left out of what the recent versions can deliver.

But at that price who could complain?
