Cherry Mobile Desire R7 Mini: iPhone 5 like phone for 2,299

Cherry Mobile Desire R7 Mini

Seems like Cherry Mobile hasn’t totally abandoned the affordable smartphone segment. The Cherry Mobile Desire R7 mini is one of the newest members of the Desire lineup and carries a relatively cheap price of less than 3K – and it looks like a mini iPhone 5.

The phone feature 4-inch IPS display, with basic 4GB storage and expandable via microSD up to 32GB, it’s also equipped with 5 megapixel rear camera and 2 MP in the front. Though, a very common feature, the Desire R7 mini supports dual-SIM and 3G connectivity. It is a quad-core smartphone that runs 1.3GHz processor. The drawback of this inexpensive phone is the 512MB of RAM, it’s a red flag if you’re planning to buy a gaming phone – it’s a no-no.
