    SOFTWARE AND UI INTERFACE

    The UI of Cherry Mobile Flare P1 is still based on default android look which is very smooth based on our test. If you don’t like its stock launcher, you can always install a third party one. The Flare P1 has some preloaded apps from Cherry Mobile that promotes Filipino applications.

    Here are some screenshots of Cherry Mobile Flare P1 default UI interface.



    CAMERA

    Having a dual rear camera is the most interesting feature of Cherry Mobile Flare P1. People are going crazy about this because you would only see this type of feature on flagship devices like Huawei, LG, and Apple iphone.

    The cherry mobile flare P1 has two standard rear cameras (13MP + 2MP) that can capture pretty good pictures. It has also a front facing camera (5MP) with flash for night selfies.

    The picture quality is not bad at all. Check the sample photos below. We did not use any lens at all. It is all just cherry mobile flare P1.



    BOKEH EFFECTS?

    Yes, it is possible to take photos with bokeh  effects, to highlight the effect, both the subject (foreground) and background should be well lighted. This effect can be easily achieved with small subjects. This really works on macro photography.

    You can use the blur mode to achieved bokeh effects on larger subjects such as a person or other big objects.



    NETWORK AND DATA CONNECTIONS         

    Cherry mobile flare P1 is a dual sim smartphone and it supports only 3G data connection.
    Overall, there is no problem with data, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth connection.

     

    BATTERY LIFE

    Standard. We suggest you to use a power bank if you are always using it for internet surfing and gaming.

    VERDICT

    If you are looking for a smartphone in the same price range, cherry mobile flare p1 is a good choice especially if you are into photography.

    APPS

    If your are looking for a nice android launcher application then you aready found one. I present to you TSF SHELL , a very fast, sleek, light and nice looking launcher with custumizable themes, fonts, 3D objects, transitions and pretty animations. Don't worry it does eats a lot of RAM and does not have ads and it is FREE.

    I tried so many android launcher before but none of those apps met my satisfaction. I tried Go Launcher, it was nice but it eats a lot of RAM and it has ads and you have to buy the premium to disable the ads. Well, the good thing about GO Launcher is that you can costumize everything. 

    I also tried Next Launcher , a fully 3D animated launcher. It was also nice but it consumes a lot of battery and i hate that. Then I also tried some light launcher like Nova and Apex, both are simple but you are able to custumize certain items lke icons, fonts and etc. Still at the end, I am not satisfied.

    I discovered TSF Launcher form my sister. I was amazed by its simple and smooth animations. The UI is so simple and everything is also customizable. TSF SELL launcher is the best for me so far.  

    Here are some reasins why I like TSF SHELL launcher.

  • Simple and smooth animations and transitions
  • You can resize widgets the way you want.
  • On the home screen, you can place each icons anywhere you want.
  • It has some 3D animated widgets that floats right on your homescreen.
  • Custumizable themes or mix themes
  • Hide icon, hide dock icons, and qiuck gestures
  •  You can try it if you want and the good thing about it is that it is free. 
    Here is the link on the play store.
