Cherry Mobile P1

May 2, 2010 Neil

The Cherry Mobile P1 is one of the cheap phones that made a buzz after its release. Some call it the “calculator” phone while others call it the “toy phone.”

The new Cherry Mobile P1 is one of the most affordable stand-alone phones in the market. My workmate bought one as a secondary phone and I had the chance to check it out.

Cherry Mobile is known for its affordable and functional phones. The Cherry Mobile P1 is one of Cherry Mobile’s most affordable phones. It’s available for PHP 999.0 and on several occasions, it was offered at PHP 1,699.oo for two phones.

The P1 is housed in a sturdy plastic with five different eye-catching candy colors: Black, Red, Green, Blue and White/Silver. The user interface is straightforward. 8-year-olds would find the UI of the Cherry Mobile P1 a piece of cake. The phone’s functions come with its price tag. It’s limited to texting and calling making it an awesome secondary phone. So if you’re looking for an affordable phone and your only requirements are being able to text and call, this is one phone to consider.

An updated version of the Cherry Mobile P1, the Cherry Mobile P2 has been released. Please check out my review for it.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    I have one; it’s black and it’s very cute. I always get compliments because of its unique design.
    Oh and btw, The new P1i has a calculator feature. :)

    what’s the difference between p1i and p1?

    1. Janae

      I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are consrdeiing an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    @Rain Serolf: I think the only difference is the calculator function added to the Cherry Mobile P1i.
