Problems With Cherry Mobile Flare

Problems with Cherry Mobile Flare

Cherry Mobile Flare is one of the best phone I ever had. It offers a lot of useful functionality. Like it's 5 megapixel camera with auto focus and flash which is one of it's specs that I really like most because I love taking pictures every time. For the last few months, it has served me well until lately. I have been experiencing a lot of problems with it which is really a "pain in the ass" as they say.

Now, I could't play heavy games like temple run or candy crush as it crashes every now and then. Even apps like Facebook, Instagram, or even browsing to it's built in browser is really pissing me off.

Cooling it down T_T
APPS (FACEBOOK) : When I'm using facebook, it just flashes a white screen then after a few seconds, it loads up again and shows the facebook logo before going back to where I was browsing. I don't know if it's really Facebook App that has the problem or the phone itself because it happens even in the other apps like instagram or just browsing the net.

GAMES (CANDY CRUSH / INSTAGRAM) : When I'm playing games, the phone starts heating up just a few finutes. Maybe like 2 to 3 minutes. Then it's just keeps on heating more after every minute that pass until it reboots itself. And this is really irritating. Why is it happening?

MUSIC : This happened just today when I was taking a bath. I usually sing in the bathroom and play music. When I played music on it, it was in good temperature. It did not heat up. While the song is playing, at the bridge part, it just stopped. I just ignored it cause I was expecting that it will reboot. So I just continue my bath. After that, when I touched the phone, it was really really hot! And the phone did not reboot at all. The phone is still on cause the back light is on though the screen is black. I immediately took off the back cover and removed the battery and let the phone cool for a while. Then after it cooled down, I turned on the phone and the wallpaper just returned to it's default wallpaper which is the Red Cherry Mobile Wallpaper.

Cherry Mobile Flare Problem

Who else is experiencing this with their Cherry Mobile Flares?
Do you have any solutions for this or I just need to avoid Cherry Mobile brand?

  1. I've been using my CM Flare for only two weeks and I'm experiencing the same problem. This phone heats up even when just playing music which is really weird - it's not like it's using the full power of it's processor. I've used Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericson & MyPhone for playing music and I never had this problem. Also the phone either hangs or restarts when playing games and it heats up quickly.

    I don't mind having to it charge often. I expect that because of its dual-core processor, big screen and 1500 mAh battery. What annoys me is how this phone functions. This is probably the last time I'll be buying Cherry Mobile.

    1. I was really happy when I bought this phone actually. But just recently, this problem occurs again and again. And just like you, this is the last time that I'll be buying CM as well. :(

  2. i'm a flare user for 9mos. already, and it seems I don't have problems yet. maybe it depends on the user. I rooted it already, sometimes drop it, still it performs very well. :P

    1. Hi, i'm assuming you're telling me that I don't take care of my phone since you said it depends on the user. But I do take good care of my phone. In fact, I have owned different kinds of phones before and they didn't have any problems like this. Lucky for you, you didn't have any problems with yours. But you said you already rooted yours. And as what Jampol Crizaldo commented above, he also had problems before he rooted it. Maybe that explains why. :)

    2. I see a lot of cool specs on CM's cellphones but whenever I thought of my flare, it makes me think twice. What if it will have the same problem as my Flare. :(

  4. Hi, same thing happens to me and to my friend. Whenever we connect it to a speaker, it will play for a while then the song would just pause. I don't know if I'm right but it's like the CM Flare's audio port is sensitive or has compatibility problems. Cause whenever we plug a samsung earphones, it wouldn't work as well as any other earphones. But nokia earphones work.

  5. Another person have been able to solve the external speaker problem by slowing down the volume to around 70 %. Its a software issue. The freezings, crashings and reboots are related to the graphics driver, which you cant change. Even freeing system ram does not help and cherry mobile is not willing to support this phone anymore, because they have new models to choose from. They simply release their products without real quality check. It is pure luck to have gotten an errorfree cherry mobile phone. Especially android.
