Apart from the Cherry Mobile Flare, the other new handset launched by the local phone brand Cherry Mobile is the W500 Titan.  Like the 4-inch Flare, the Titan will be sold for a very, very low price.  Cherry Mobile says the Titan will retail for only P6,499.

The Cherry Mobile W500 Titan offers a 5-inch display which brings it into the “phablet” category like the Samsung Galaxy Note or the LG Optimus Vu.  The similarity does not end in the display size, the Cherry Mobile Titan also features a flip cover just like the Galaxy Note.  With the cheap price of the Titan, however, don’t expect a similar build quality or performance as Samsung’s phablet.

Based on internal hardware, the Cherry Mobile W500  Titan looks like a capable phone.  The Titan is powered by a 1GHz dual-core MediaTek MT6577 CPU paired with 512MB of RAM with an internal storage of 4GB that’s expandable up 32GB via microSD. The Titan has a 5-megapixel rear shooter and a front-facing VGA camera.  The battery on the Titan is 2,350mAh, which is better than the one used on the Flare.

Here are the main specs of the Cherry Mobile W500 Titan.

    got mine last sunday, ver9 na, pero walang flipcover or jelly case. had to buy it mismo sa cherry mobile store. 500 ang price ng jelly case. tapos di pa nagbabasa ang CDR KING na microSD. anyway sulit na sulit! :D

  2. I love my white Titan! :) Just got it a few days ago after reading reviews here and there and weighing the pros and cons. The camera is not that good, but so practical with the price. I am into photography and what I did to solve the cam prob is (1)-I do few editing (using the phone) to enhance the pic or if I really wanted na maganda ang pic, (2) I bought a wifi ready na sd card so madali lang ang pag transfer ng pic to the cam for posting or just keeping it in the album for viewing.

    honestly, with 6,440 price of titan im so contented with it..nice performance..nice battery life.ok naman cam kahit panu..nice features..im so satisfied…the best phone i got so far seriously

    • compatible ba toh sa mga smartwatch at wireless headsets via bluetooth?

  16. loveANDROIDdevices Reply

    Guys! Don’t expect too much about the quality of TITAN or myphone A898., these are not like IPHONE5 that has RETINA DISPLAY and GALAXY NOTE II that has SUPER AMOLED!!!  and has a GORILLA GLASS, even those phone that value more than 30k also has PRO’s and CON’s, so what do you expect with this phones that only cost you less than 8k.. and guys take note, JELLYBEAN with 2GHz QUADCORE is already out in the market… If you guys looking for not just better but the best then spend a lot of money… but if you are looking for a elegant look but low quality the be contented with those… *peace*

    • Davebautisa Reply

      Not all people can afford a phone priced at 8k above.  Personally, this phone (TITAN) and FLARE are just a few of the most awesome phones that are android powered.  Try to compare it to Samsung’s Galaxies, the specs, built, performance.  I bet these phones would definitely better the performance of LOTS of those “8k-priced and above” phones.  Check the FLARE”s specs and COMPARE…

    • path2awesomeness Reply

      Mas maraming practical mg isip kesa sau.. Brand name lng ang binili mo pre. Halos parehas lng nmn ang features ng mga top phones at mga sinasabi mong mumurahin na cp. why spend that much when u can get decent phones like these n parehas lng nmn ang features at a very low price. I know mag hihit 2 sa market. and as time goes mas mrami pang lalabas n new model ng phones.. maluluma din yang phone mo bibili k ulit ng bago . di naman nag mamahal ang phone lagi yan nagiging mas mura. Practically mas ok n bumili ng mura pero my quality. and dont say walang quality ang mga phones n to. basahin mo mga reviews nyan noob.

      • i agree… and this is a pinoy phone. you should be proud were making phones like this. that is if you’re pinoy.

  17. every one of as has their own opinion w/ this phone…for a gamer like me i like this phone  and i already try this in megamall and im planning to buy 1 cuz its cheap 4 a ICS Guys if you to buy CM TITAN for the price of  6,499 try to buy at LAZADA.com.ph they accept COD (cash on delivery) never mind the bad comment the first thing to do is go to a cherry mobile store and see to believe what a titan can do before posting any thing…

    • You’re right, Dash! That is what I did! I read a lot of reviews and then headed to the CM store. ;) I did not regret buying one! Very responsive ang screen :D

  18. Retirednurse87 Reply

    My cousin just bought this CM Titan few days ago. And here is my review!

    – ganda ng interface
    – malaki ang screen
    – mabilis mag wifi
    – walang lag/hang

    – disappointed ako sa camera kahit sabi nila 5MP 
    – poor picture quality kahit mag install ka ng camera apps
    – basta very disappointing ang camera. kahit my LED Flash
    – disappointed ako sa kulay ng screen/icons kasi faded.
    – mabilis mafull batt pero ganun din kabilis ma lowbat

    If your the type of person na mahilig mag picture2x, i definitely cannot recommend this phone. Pangit talaga ng camera. 

    I cannot help but to compare it with the camera ng MyPhone a878 duo ko. (I have one of these). In fairness to them, 5MP at my LED flash din just like sa Titan pero iba talaga eh. Sobra ganda ng kuha ng myphone a878 duo. 

    I am not here to promote myPhone  a878 duo which I personally own it. Kayo na bahala to compare between the 2. It’s just really disappointing ng camera at picture quality na kuha from titan. Siguro nga kasi mas pricey konti ng mPhone (6,999) compare sa titan (6,499). 

    • GutturalSecrete Reply

      nice review! napaisip tuloy ako LOL!, wait ko muna myphone 898 or ung star mobile astra…

    • Thickasapple Reply

      Sa mga nag-comment na inde importante ang camera sa cellphone, wala kayo alam sa technology. Dati pantawag lang cp, tapos pwde na magtext, ngayon mas madami na pwede gawin. Meron ako DSLR, point and shoot camera, pero inde mo naman pwede bitbitin parati mga un. Kaya importante camera sa phone na kaya magproduce decent photos.

    •  myphone a898 is already at 6,599… kita ko sa myphone stores…. i own personally a titan… di totoo na madaling malobat… pero totoo pangit ang cam pero acceptable xa sa price

  19. NunWhoreCommando Reply

    sa tingin ko matibay nmn toh kc re-branded lng sya ng CM, so it means d talaga CM ang gumawa, alam nmn nating lhat na marupok an orig CM phones, antay lng muna baka bumaba pa ang price… hehehe

    • this titan phone is made in India, re-brand lng to ng philippines at gnwang cherry mobile… mgnda din nman mag produce ang india ng mga phones, so i guess, good quality to.. planning to buy next year… 

  20. Sobrang na enjoy ko to at the price of 6,499…. Mabilis makaconnect sa wifi kahit sa sim. So far malinaw naman mga kuha ng pictures… Sa games mabilis din… :)

  21. good thing about this phone is the its affordable, huge screen, long lasting battery and its neat and simple style, but the bad part is the colors looks washed out, camera is not that clear (video/pictures) and its kinda heavy… but who care i still oves this phone!

  22. Adiksaragnarok_19 Reply

    hehehe i saw my boss using this thang! good for HD gaming Asphalt no lag!!!

  23. design is really great kaso baka palpak ang performance at yung screen hindi yata gorilla glass panget sa gaming at nakakatakot bilhin…

    • Savemysoul19 Reply

      Tanga ka ba?? ur expecting gorilla glass from a 6500 price range?? go buy urself an HTC one x if you want gorilla glass, then you can jerk off and put all your cum on your gorilla glass screen

    ang comment ko lng ay very good phone yehey may mura ng ganitong klaseng phone .dalian nyo baka kau maubusan

  25. Efraim Francisco Reply

    kukuha na sna ko kanina neto s rob ermita… kaso  nkakabigla they are selling it for 7500 kaya natanong ko yung isang rep nila kung bakit sbi s website nila ay 6500 lng ito ang sagot nya introductory price lng yun.. totoo b? 7500 n to?

    • Theresa_elma1019 Reply

      nope bumili ako sa sm sta.mesa last oct. 29 and ang price nia ya 6,500 panong naging introductory price lng un?

    • Paulinoluna Reply

      over yan bro nakabili ko sm sucat 6299 lang ok to sulit ang pera

  26. Sa wakas nakabili din ako ng Titan, i was so impressed ng mahawakan ko i2 but after an hour or 2 parang gs2 ko na ulit ibalik kaso d n pwede… touch screen d sya masyado responsive, wifi hirap maka connect sa wpa2 kung di ko inalis na lng password ng wifi nmin, masyado mabigat compare to other phone na parehas ang laki, and the worst ang camera claiming 5mp… e mas malinaw pa ang cam ng nokia 2700c ko na vga lng…screen kailangn naka full ang brightness para makita ng maayos, maputla ang kulay cguro 56k colors lang i2, parang htc hd2 lng e 

    • SwordArtOnline Reply

      very helpful tong comment mo bro, thanks! baka mag Myphone 898 nlng ako o kaya ung Cherry Mobile Flare

    • Theresa_elma1019 Reply

      I think depende un sa bilis ng internet niu kc naka-wifi kami sa bhay so far mabilis mag-browse ng site ung titan ko ganon din sa opis in 3 seconds nag-oopen na ung fb,youtube etc. ung viber lng nia ang medyo me tanong ako pero ask ko technician nila about this and it’s not too bad for a android phone have big screen worth of 6,500

      • Romel Salto Patupat Reply

        mabilis wifi nya kaso pag wpa2 ang security nahihirapan sya maka connect e pero pag wpa lng o wala password and wifi madali…

      • I agree with you. I didn’t experience any prob sa wifi connection with Titan. Even sa Viber, ok na ok. With this phone na maganda ang form, sulit ang price. The cam is quite good. You just do a little editing ok na ang pic. Of course yong iba kinum-compare palagi sa branded kaya so nega mga comments. :(

    • Paulinoluna Reply

      ics bro.punta ka sa setting click mo about phone tapos tap mo lang ng tap un 4.0.4 lalabas un logo ng ics try mo bro tunay to ics.bumili nov.2 ok sulit sya

    • Savemysoul19 Reply

      Baka naman pre china tablet na resistive screen ung nabili mo, froyo un brad!

  27. I was able to have a hands-on here at SM-Cebu and I’m impressed with its performance for the little time I had. the only thing that’s making me hesitant to buy this is its durability.

    pls do update us further mr_paeng from time to time as to the quality usage of the cherry w500 titan. hopefully im planning to buy this one if ever! thanks.

  30. kaka-bili ko lang. so far ok naman, pinalitan ko ng launcher pro at go keyboard/sms/contacts astig na tingnan. problem ko lang parang hindi yata pwedeng personalize ang phone name?.

    • Technobaboy said it “looks like a capable phone.” I think we can root up from it! :)

  31. Wengweng2003 Reply

    Super fast & smooth UI, they had a display & hands on booth at megamall, blurry camera, a bit thick and on the heavy side of handhelds. The price is hard to beat. 

      • Haido_kun14 Reply

        I think so. I tested it yesterday sa Megamall. Probably hanggang today. Sold out kahapon ang mga units ng Titan.
