I don’t do a lot of unboxing posts, but I can’t help but share this one. Cherry Mobile recently launched its first action camera and I was surprised at the number of accessories that came with it.

Nice Package and a Lot of Accessories

The packaging itself belies the fact that the action cam only costs PHP3,999. It comes in a nice tall box with a hard clear plastic case. Once you open it, you’ll be immediately greeted by the action cam and the waterproof housing.

Inside is a plethora of accessories you can use for a lot of different scenarios. It comes with different types of mounts, a case with a screw hole, a monopod, some straps and clips. It even comes with replaceable face plates.

Quick Hands-On

In terms of build quality, the Cherry Action Cam feels good. It is pretty solid, and it’s smooth rubbery coating gives it a nice touch. The buttons are a bit clickety, but otherwise works well. The cam’s UI is simple and straight forward. You can control the cam through a Wi-Fi connection with its companion app “CACWF.” It is available for download for both Android or iOS.

Priced at PHP3,999, the Cherry Action Cam is quite decent for the price. It has a good design, a solid build quality, a simple UI for easy operation, and comes with a boatload of accessories.

I’ll post my review soon. For now, I hope you liked my first impressions and some close up photo of the Cherry Action Cam.
