Cherry has had the hot hand lately due to its release of two affordable and functional phones Cherry Mobile Flare and the giant Cherry Mobile Titan, priced P4000 and P6500 respectively. The former garnering a gargantuan crowd during its release while the latter’s supplies continue to be elusive to consumers. Flare VS Titan HERE. With both Giants pivoting the market in favour of Cherry, MyPhone and Cloudfones are two of the other rebranders who attempted to retaliate. Cloudfone released the Cloudfone Thrill 430x, to hopefully be reviewed later, which sport a 4.3 Inch IPS display with a massive 4160maH battery and MyPhone released the A919, 5 Inch display with almost same specs as the Titan. Releases of other rebranders keep the competition burning. For this blog, MyPhone A919 and the month-old Cherry Mobile Titan will go head to head in a test of strength, color, sound, camera and speed. Is the MyPhone a contender or a waste of P1500? Read on and find out!
DISCLAIMER: THESE ARE MY PREFERENCE, I’M NOT SAYING WHAT I PICKED IS BETTER, WHAT I PICK IS WHAT I PREFER.
1. BOX CONTENTS
Both packages carry a USB Cable, Charger, Headset, and Manuals. The Titan has a free flip cover whereas the MyPhone has a free CD. The USB Cable of the A919 is much rugged than that of the Titan, in addition, the stock headset on MyPhone A919 is much better than that of the Titan.
COOL DISCOVERY: Using the A919 headset on the Titan gives you great audio output, louder volume, cleaner sounds and additional instruments.
Winner: MyPhone A919
2. PHONE SUPERFICIALITY
This part is by an individual’s preference, both phones sport a 5 Inch Screen, the Titan is heavier but A919 is taller. MyPhone comes in two colors, black or white and both come with an annoying finger print magnet back cover. Both have killer sexy look so it’s really up to you.
3. PERFORMANCE EVALUATION
A staple for rebranders is its speaker. May it be loudspeaker or earplugs attached, speakers is a must, at least in my experience with rebranders. Pitting both of them on loudspeaker, both offers good quality and it is painstakingly hard to identify which is louder and better. Earplugs attached, both these phones also offer amazing output. This is obviously another Tie.
This is the hardest part to judge.
This is a no-brainer. Both phones sport a 5 Inch Screen but the A919 catapults itself away with its IPS display and 854x480 resolution. Colors are obviously much sharper and better on the MyPhone A919 as opposed to Titan’s 800x480 display. If you would watch a video on both phones simultaneously, A919 makes the Titan look distorted, pale and pixelated.
Winner: MyPhone A919
*** A919 sports a 5 Point Multi-Touch whereas the Titan only has two. An update is scheduled for the Titan to sport a 5 Point Multi-touch so wait for it.
Ahhh games, on both devices I have played and tried most mainstream games with the undying NBA 2k13 as the HD Game test. I will not include the graphics part, if I do, MyPhone would crush the Titan due to its superior display. On a test of smoothness of game playing, both plays smoothly, for the HD game test, I had a hard time opening NBA on both devices, it took me many tries before it actually boots the game. The Titan’s 2 Point Multi-touch hampers my enjoyment of this game. A919, on the other hand, played the game very smoothly! As of now I have already played 5 Games on season. That is how impressed I am with its HD Game playing sleight.
See the video of both device playing Temple Run
Another no brainer, Titan shots are crap compared to MyPhone’s. It’s not just the 8Mp, the quality itself lifts the A919 away from the Titan. Did I mention that A919 shoots faster and sports an actually effective HDR mode?
Winner: MyPhone A919
As seen from the photos, Titan offers obvious noise unlike the MyPhone A919 duo which offers greater quality image vaguely comparable to a Nokia N86.
3.5 Need for Speed
RAM and Clockspeed Review
Many of you might wonder, what is RAM and the clockspeed for? Should I go for higher RAM, less clock or vice versa? The answer depends on how you use the phone. Random Acess Memory (RAM) is used to determine how many apps your unit can run simultaneously. So bigger RAM means you can multi-task much more applications without worrying about lagging on the system.
Clockspeed is used to determine how fast your system will run a certain application. Simply put, higher clockspeed means faster phone. THIS IS THE GENERAL IDEA ON RAM AND CLOCKSPEED. Factors on speed are also determined by the chipset architecture, GPU, etc.
Both phones carry MediaTek MT6577 1GHz dual-core processor with the same PowerVR SGX531 GPU. Based on the Video, response and speed is basically the same. I have to raise the fact that MyPhone has IPS Display which is theorized to be faster and snappier than regular screens, the video shows their speed is arguably the same despite the absence of IPS on the Titan.
Watch the Video for speed analysis.
Both sport Android 4.0.4 on release. Exploring the phone, you get the same pre-installed apps and same launcher. Again, MyPhone edges the competition with its rich number of pre installed wallpaers and live wallpapers. Finally, those who are interested in flashing Custom Roms will find happiness and delight with the fact that Micromax A110 Roms work on the A919. (This is according to the TCP Users, check this thread, do some reading for yourself.)
Winner: MyPhone A919
More flexibility, more features, much better.
For my experience, Cherry Mobile Titan excels and shines far above the MyPhone A919, sporting a higher density and higher capacity of 2350maH Lithium Ion than MyPhone’s 2000maH Lithium Polymer, Titan wins by a long shot. Though I have to point out, I still charge my Titan overnight, I don’t believe that a 36% battery after work will still be able to withstand another day of music, gaming and video.
Winner: Cherry Mobile Titan

THE LIGHT IS MY STRENGTH!
Dual-Core, Dual Cam and of course, Dual-Sim both these phones are for everyone. This blog may have favoured A919 but that does not mean the Titan is bad. I personally don’t think the Titan will ever be bad as I have had it for almost a month now and it still performs great. For the P6,500 price, what you get is actually a very good deal, I would even say great as opposed to other phones with the same price. What I am trying to say with this blog is, for the extra P1,500, you get a whole lot, you get your money’s worth. Being a sound geek, a series watcher, a gamer and a camera guy (I’m not a photographer), the addition is worth it. Personally, I do not regret buying any of the two as they have been money well spent.
If you are budget stricken, go with the Titan.
If you can afford the extra P1,500, I would recommend the A919.
AGAIN, THESE ARE BASED ON MY PREFERENCE, I DON’T THINK ANY OF THE TWO IS A BAD CHOICE.
FOR A REBRANDED PHONE, BOTH OF THEM ARE GREAT!
