Cherry Mobile P2 carries the name, P1 and P1i, it’s nowhere near its predecessor when it comes to functionality and design. The craze over the P1 can be attributed to its unique design and candy color options. While P2’s feature is up with FM Tuner, Games, Calendar and Flashlight, it lost its edge over other competitors by dumping the different color options. P2 is available only in black, just black.

P2 is slightly heavier as the P1. Compared to other cellphones, it’s actually very light.  The P2 is about a cm taller than the P1 yet 1 cm slimmer. The front cover has glossy finish and the back battery cover is matte (etched plastic).

The P2 will take roughly 23 seconds to completely initialize (search for a network and connect to it, and load the items stored in SIM). The P2’s keypad is okay and average users ( = average finger size) will not have problems typing messages. I noticed a problem with the display. It keeps on blinking, every 3 seconds or so, like it’s refreshing the display. I can’t conclude yet if this problem is isolated. The same issue, however, was reported by my sister’s friend. If you have a P2 with the same problem, please let me know through the comment section. Call quality is also acceptable. Clear and loud.

No data/claim is posted on the Cherry Mobile website regarding the battery life of the P2. It uses a 3.7 Volt battery (650mAH). Call time may be less than 3 hours while standby should be around 48 hours.

The phone retails at PHP 1,290.00 (USD 28.00) which isn’t that bad. Samsung’s GT-E1080F and Nokia’s 1202 (B/W) are cheaper at PHP 1,150.00 (USD 25.00) which I believe are better.

Unless Cherry Mobile comes up with the candy color options, Cherry Mobile P2 will end up just with a yet-another-cheap-cellphone status.

Here are some of the pics I took. Sorry for the poor quality.
