    I bought this phone last December 22. I intended to buy the cm amber because i like the design. Thank God the cm saleslady showed me the newly released cm gem. I found out that with the same price of Php2,999 as with amber, gem has way better specs, particularly the IPS display, 2mp front camera and 1500 mAh battery. Coz amber has WVGA display, VGA or 0.3mp front camera and 1400 mAh battery only. This phone is really a great haul for me. Running a 4.2 Jelly Bean OS with 512mb ram only is not a problem at all.. It is fast and very fluid.. The battery life can last for up to 12 hours if you keep your wifi on standby and you frequently use the phone for browsing and messaging. Works just the same with my iphone4 which has 1432 mAh battery.. If you aren’t convinced try comparing it at any cm kiosk.. But if you want really great smartphone and you’re on a budget, gem is the one for you.. The specs, the sleek design, and the price is just amazingly unbelievable.. Not that I am being biased but I really have nothing but good words for this phone..

  • deepee January 4, 2014, 9:10 pm

    bought this one today, and i am totally impressed. the quality of the music using the earphones are quite “basag”, so i used my old nokia earphones and they work quite well.

  • kenneth_ph January 7, 2014, 9:48 am

    compared with amber ms ok po ba cam nung gem?kse po dami ngcocomplain n panget daw po ung cam khit 5mp n ung sa amber ,pti po sa LIFE panget dn daw po ung cam.ty ty,

    • Ara_PH January 16, 2014, 7:58 am

      Malayong maganda ang cam ng Gem than Amber and Life, isa yan sa kinompara ko when I bought the Gem.. I don’t know nga why kasi pare-parehong 5MP naman.. Pero hindi lang reliable ang cam ng Amber, Life pati Gem pag madilim kasi weak yung flash.. Pero pag well lighted and outdoors super linaw nya..

  • totoy January 7, 2014, 11:12 am

  • eli January 9, 2014, 12:37 pm

    in terms of browsing, mabilis din, kaya mag load hanggang 3pages. ung camera good. hindi ngalang pag magrerecord nang videos. sa battery naman, it will last atleast 8hrs. from moderate to heavy use…
    IPS pa ung display. ..

  • terter January 11, 2014, 10:54 am

    maganda yung specs kaya lang madaling masira. Isang bagsakan lang to. Tse

    • maniwala January 12, 2014, 5:23 am

      hindi madali masira ang phone depende na lng kung binabato mo bobo

      Yung Gem ko nahulog ng 4 na besses sa double deck buhay pa

      • Ara_PH January 16, 2014, 8:08 am

        Kung gusto mo talaga ng matibay na phone, bili ka ng mamahalin wag ito mura lang kasi ito..

    • Ara_PH January 16, 2014, 8:11 am

      Kung gusto mo talaga ng matibay na phone bumili ka ng mahal, wag ito kasi mura lang ito we cannot expect na kasing tibay sya ng iba na 10x ang presyo dito sa Gem.. Pero kung wala ka namang pera pambili ng mamahalin ingat ingat nalang sa pag gamit..

    • jake January 26, 2014, 6:55 pm

      scratch resistant ang screen nito

  • pleasereply January 12, 2014, 3:48 pm

    Planning to buy this on monday.But I just wanna ask if can you move the apps you’ve installed to your SD card? kc I’ve read in some blogs na sa CM life hindi na mo moove yung apps sa SD card, all apps are installed in phone / internal memory. I’m after sa apps na pwdeng ma move sa SD card, ayoko kcng mag root

    • Ara_PH January 16, 2014, 8:06 am

      No hindi rin pwede magmove sa SD card dito sa Gem.. Need din iroot muna sya.. Which will void the warranty..

      • yunik February 5, 2014, 1:33 pm

        pede po maq move nq app sa sd card (except xa mqa pre-installed apps) ..

    • van March 7, 2014, 1:03 am

      Na tatransfer naman lahat ng apps ko nga eh nsa sd card nka install..

  • Macoy January 13, 2014, 4:21 pm

    OK nmn po, yung battery lng, madaling ma lowbat, tinanong ko yung saleslady wla pa daw available na battery pra sa unit na 2 kc bagong labas pa daw. Sana my mabili n n battery pra Hindi laging nag cha charge.

    • Ara_PH January 16, 2014, 8:04 am

      Powerbank nalang bilhin mo para always on the go ka without worrying sa pagchacharge.. Madali talaga malowbat kung maraming running apps.. kahit my friends who have samsung android phones they charge everyday din kaya powerbank ang to the rescue..

  • ahbasta January 16, 2014, 12:00 am

    My personal experience:

    Bought this phone (Cherry Mobile Gem) last January 13, 2014. It’s sulit because it almost has everything except for the camera and the battery, at first use it was very smooth, and no lags, but after I installed apps and put my screen guard it then lags. I sometimes get annoyed because it’s hard to unlock my phone since I’ve got to slide it trice or for the fifth time, it lags whenever I’m unlocking and whenever i press the home icon, but I just press the lock screen then try it again then it just works back like normal. Overall, this is a good phone for me, I don’t know for how long because I just had this for like 3 days pa lamang. It’s good with apps its camera quality is way better than CM Life and you can move your apps to SD Card.

    The camera quality is not the so nice kahit na 5mp. Ang front ok naman basta huwag ka lang against the light. Ang earphones ko ang pangit! Sobra! Hindi ko pa napa change kc nung pina try skin ng sales lady gamit ang earphones ng CM, ang sa FM radio lang, ok naman during that time pero nang itry ko nang lagyan ng mga music ko at itry ang earphones, basag ang music, ang earphones ko nalang sa Nokia ginamit ko, kahit hindi masyadong loud, hindi din compatible kc yung samsung earphones. Pero BTW, bsta sulit siya; esp. GPS, Front and Back Camera, etc…makaka multitask ka.

  • Jewel January 20, 2014, 3:48 pm

    May nabasa akong another review site, ang sabi ay ” I am now suggesting that prospective buyers get the Cherry Mobile Gem instead. Spec-wise, it is virtually similar to the Cherry Mobile Life, except the Gem has a real IPS screen and a slightly stronger LED flash.”

  • Charles January 22, 2014, 2:25 am

    I would just like to ask how to manage the Contacts in Cherry Mobile Gem? I’ve been having problems on how to move my contacts from my sim to phone. Minsan kase nagdodouble thread sya with the same contact sa messages. parang bug? ewan. And I can’t mark a specific contact as “favorite” kase nasa sim mga contacts ko. I’ve been having a hard time exploring the phone. Thanks!

    • Diana January 22, 2014, 6:34 pm

      I-import niyo lang po yung contacts niyo para ma-save sa phone. Try niyo pong i-click yung options button and searck for “import……” pag naka-save po kase sa phone, masmaraming pwedeng i-edit :)

  • Joemari January 31, 2014, 2:04 pm

    Magandang Araw po sa inyo, bale kakabili ko lang nang Cherry Mobile Gem nung Sunday around 4pm (January 19, 2014), then sabi nung nagtitinda dun, idrained ko daw muna yung battery bago ko icharge. Nidrained ko naman siya, nag download ako ng mga apps katulad nang facebook, Go launcher, Go sms, Youtube, Go Keyboard at Cleanmaster. Yan lang po ang mga gusto kong apps e, more on texting kase ako, bake na drained po around 10pm. Chinarge ko siya nang 5hours (kase yung ang sabi nung nagtitinda sa stall nang CM eh. Natapos siya nang 3am, pagkatapos nun nag GM ako, bale 140 contacts lahat yung nipadaanan ko, nabawasan agad nang 10 percent ang battery ko. Tapos po konting browse ko lang (hal. magbabasa nang tatlong message etc.) mababawasan agad nang 1percent :3 bale natagal po ito almost mga 18 hours (take note: puro text lang yun, tsaka di naman ganun siguro makakonsumo sa battery yun diba?,)tsaka pagpalagay natin hindi ko po siya totally nagagamit nang matagal, halimbawa mag tetext lang ako kapag may importanteng nag text sakin, maggm lang kapag nikaka ilangan, mas lamang pa po yung oras na hindi ko siya ginagamit kesa sa pakiki pagtext.
    Tanong lang po, normal lang po ba ito ? Ehh puro text lang naman ang ginagawa ko.

    Tsaka po, pag 30 percent na lang ang battery ko nicha charge ko agad ito. Okay lang ba yun ?

    Please pasagot naman po sa mga tanong ko.

    • boggz February 3, 2014, 7:41 am

      check mu young group ng cm gem sa fb. madami kang matututunan dun.

    • concern netizen March 27, 2014, 4:11 pm

      i deactivate mo yung data traffic bluetooth wifi or lessen your background apps such as go luancher go sms or battery saver apps nag rrun po kc yun kahit hindi nyo ginagamit yung phone isa rin sa mga causes ng laggs kc 512 mb lang yung ram nya kaya mag sslow po tlga yung phone, yun lang sana makatulong sayo :)

  • $#*!head February 3, 2014, 12:18 am

    does cm gem has hspa+ connectivity like the cm life?

  • kat February 10, 2014, 8:14 pm

    Bakit po nag iiba ang mac address ng gem :( yun po ang problema sa gem pag inooff ang phone o wifi :(((((

  • Claire February 16, 2014, 11:33 am

    I also have CM Gem and I bought it last week. Sabi sakin nung saleslady 5 hours daw yun chinacharge. Nung nadrained ko na yung battery sinubukan ko na syang icharge Pero halos isat-kalahating oras pa lang nakalagay 100% na agad sya. Nung ginamit ko ambilis naman malowbatt. Ibig sabihin ba hindi totoo yung battery percentage na nakalagay sa fone? Natatakot kasi ako na sundin yung saleslady, baka kasi masira yung device ko.

  • john February 25, 2014, 9:16 am

    I hear that the cherry gem phone will not work in the us or Europe. Tell me what the reason for this is.
