Cherry Mobile Excalibur, named after the legendary sword of King Arthur is the latest octa-core device from CM. Recently, Philippines’ leading mobile phone distributor released yet another affordable octa-core smartphone dubbed as Excalibur. This android device is packed with numerous features and lots of customizable gesture offering with its P6999 price (below 7K).
It has Corning Gorilla Glass protection for its front and back panel. It allows the device to be impact and scratch resistant. In between, it has a magnesium alloy sim card tray and metal decorative pieces for its USB port and 3.5mm audio jack.
It is an octa-core powered device running on the latest android KitKat operating system out of the box. It flaunts a 5-inch IPS HD display. The 8MP rear camera is equipped with a F2.0 aperture that allows Excalibur to capture quality photos even under low-light conditions.
Excalibur offers lots of customizable gestures which can be accessed by tapping and swiping the screen (Up, Down, Left, Right); Double top to wake the screen, draw up to unlock, draw down to pause, draw right for next song, and draw left for previous song (this reminds of O+ phones air shuffle feature).
The non-removable battery perhaps, is the only drawdown of this device as it only has a capacity of 1980mAh which is I think insufficient for a 5 incher smartphone.
