THE LEGEND OF THE SKYFIRE:
Once upon a time, a mighty giant named Titan ruled the land, he was one of the Three Kings which ruled over the planet R-Brandrz, along with Thrill and Duos, each of them ruled over a specific domain, Titan ruled the lands, Thrill the underworld and Duos the Sky. They were now at peace after The Great War. One day, as Titan was roaming around the land, he saw a beautiful woman named Flare, it was lust at first sight as their first meeting led to another, the news spread quickly and Titan was embarrassed of her actions, Flare took all the blame for King Titan and bore a lovely child, which she named SkyFire, the embarrassment by Flare and Titan was too much both of them went to hiding. This is the reason why Flare and Titan are rarely seen. SkyFire, grew up with the help of the people because they knew that Titan and Flare were both good they knew that their child would also grow up the same. Now SkyFire showed her true colors and powers and amazed people with its unique mixture from both its Father, Titan, and Mother, Flare.

THE BATTLE BEGINS:
THE BATTLE BEGINS:
Before everything, I would like to thank you guys for the unwavering support. Currently, my mentor, Claumellie, told me I had surpassed her blog with respect to views, her blog can be seen HERE. If it wasn’t for her and you guys I wouldn’t be here. So thanks guys!
Now, before I get my hands on Cherry Mobile Blaze, and the rumoured Cherry Mobile Omega, I will first consider pitting the three phones I currently have. Now before you say anything stupid, let me make this point as to why this would be a triple threat match. After acquiring Cherry Mobile SkyFire, I had a hard time as to which I should compare it to as it both resembled the Cherry Mobile Flare and the Cherry Mobile Titan, I even concluded that SkyFire is the child of both Titan and Flare, read the story above. As to why, 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
The three packages carry a USB Cable, Charger, Headset, and Manuals. The Titan has a free flip cover whereas the other two had none. NOTE: SkyFire comes with a 4GB memory card. All of their packages are not that impressive, but they do function well, function well as in not exploding Charger, ehem, Cloudfone Thrill 430x.
2. PHONE SUPERFICIALITY
Hands down, this would have to go to SkyFire. Don’t get me wrong, the three of them look great but the SkyFire pulls itself away because of its relatively big screen partnered with a light weight and thin body, it even looks like a branded phone, Google Nexus, credits to Brilie Viray. Both the Titan and Flare maybe big for some people, the Titan’s heavy weight is definitely a minus one.
3. PERFORMANCE EVALUATION
Finally, the battle starts to heat up, but this section is still a no-brainer as the Titan wipes the floor against Flare and SkyFire. If you are a music geek, definitely go for the Titan, be it loudspeaker or headphones attached, Titan is the best.
As for Flare and SkyFire, headphones attached, comparison is painstakingly hard and annoying, listening to both after you listen to Titan is very disappointing, both phones’ sound is definitely below below average and subpar. The volume is soft even with a good headset with good quality audio.
TITAN WINS. PERIOD NO ERASE.
The three phones offer 800x480, but the three differ in screen size, 5, 4.7, 4, Titan, SkyFire, Flare, respectively. The Titan has the worst display because the display looks stretched out, SkyFire also suffers the same fate as Titan, but it is not as bad. I have seen both of them without screen protector; both of them look pale and stretched out. The Flare’s 4 Inch Screen, on the other hand, is pretty impressive. The three devices can pretty much play any videos, barring 1080p videos and videos over 1GB.
Powered by Snapdragon, Flare has no say in this department. Yes, the Flare does play mainstream games, good, not great, but when it is HD Gaming, it lags, it’s slow and it sucks. As for SkyFire or Titan, both are powered with the same MT6577, the gameplay experience would differ by preference of screen size. Both devices play HD Games quite well and playing mainstream games is very smooth.
Winner: TIE – Between SkyFire and Titan
Finally, the Titan takes a rest. Out of the three, no questions asked, the Titan has the worst camera. The Flare and the SkyFire trade blows for better camera, I see no significant difference between the two cameras except the Flare has a larger file size and a resolution of 2592x1944 whilst the SkyFire has a resolution of 2560x1920.
Winner: TIE - Between Flare and SkyFire
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 Access 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 Titan and SkyFire carry Mediatek MT6577 1GHz dual-core processor with the same PowerVR SGX531 GPU whereas Flare uses 1.2GHz dual-core qualcomm snapdragon processor. When a bunch of applications is installed on the phones, significant slowdown can be observed on the Flare. The Flare is initially slower than both SkyFire and Titan.
Winner: TIE between Titan and SkyFire
The three sport Android 4.0.4 on release. Exploring the phones, you get the same pre-installed apps and same launcher, even the same set of wall papers. If you will try Android for the first time, I don’t see any significant difference to alter the Android experience from one phone to another.
This is definitely a No-Brainer. Cherry Mobile Flare’s hype was dampened due to its abysmal battery life. The SkyFire seem to suffer the same fate as discharge rate is just too fast, both device will barely last 8 hours of use. The Titan wins this competition with its rather huge battery life that actually lasts a day.
FATHER, MOTHER, DAUGHTER
So why did I say this phone is the child of Titan and Flare? You can see that SkyFire is a cheaper Titan or a much expensive Titan. SkyFire resembles the Titan in terms of speed and display, it also resembles the Flare in terms of camera, abysmal sound, horrendous battery life.
The winner of the three will, as usual, be based upon your personal preferences, if you someone who are short on budget, go for the Flare, if you want a cheaper, lighter and smaller Titan, go with the SkyFire, the pros and the cons of each phone are almost too balanced you will also have a hard time choosing, if I were to be asked I would go for the Titan, mainly because I will only use it as a back-up phone like listening to music or watching movies when travelling. The verdict on an overall decision is impossible especially if you had tried them all for yourself. Whichever you chose has its own pros and cons, you just have to pick which will suit your needs.
AGAIN, THESE ARE BASED ON MY PREFERENCE; I DON’T THINK ANY OF THE THREE IS A BAD CHOICE.
FOR A REBRANDED PHONE, ALL OF THEM ARE GREAT!
