Looking at the specs, its really hard to decide on what to get. The decision point here is the battery and price. Cherry Mobile Life has a smaller 1,500 mAh battery and cheaper with P2,999 SRP compared to Gionee Pioneer P2’s larger 1,700 mAh battery and a heftier price of P4,490 SRP.

Would you prefer a phone with a larger battery at a more expensive price?

Would you prefer a phone with the same specs but on a cheaper price but comes with a smaller battery?

In my particular case, my decision is based on the looks and battery. At P4,490 SRP and I will get a well built device, a bigger battery and a soft matte finish at the back for better grip, then I think the Gionee Pioneer P2 is the better choice. But if your are kinda short in cash but you really need to buy an affordable but still reliable smartphone that can connect you to the internet faster with the help of HSPA+ and has autofocus on the camera, then the Cherry Mobile Life is your best pick.

  2. What about the cameras? How’s the image quality of each phone? Sometimes that factor can also influence a potential buyer’s decision.

  3. Cherry mobile mura sana pero kapag nagka problema yung unit, pahirapan din ng pila sa service center known for their poor service. imagine, 3 to 6 weeks bago ma claim. Aw! Makakamura ka sa unit at mapapamura ka rin literally. Sabi nga nila nasa pagiingat na lang. Eh paano kung use & abuse ang naka purchase?

  4. technical details about pioneer p2? any info? cm life has mali 400mp + MT6572 which makes up for the low battery capacity. How about the p2?

  5. Been using the phone for the past three weeks and so far everything runs smoothly except for the camera. Use it outdoors and you get nicer shots, use it indoors just make sure you have good lighting, otherwise, you get poor quality shots. I think a phone is a phone, still.

  6. id probably just go with life. masmacho specs nya at and i dont want to pay a thousand pesos more for just battery life. battery management lang naman yan. just turn to battery saving mode every time youre not using it for surfing the net.
