I had this Cherry Mobile One Phone and I gotta say that the device was able to meet my needs as an average user yet smartphone production just upgrades as the years goes buy and replaced it with a Cherry Mobile Flare X2 5'5 inch display with a SD420 4GB RAM under a good $160 (8000php), but was hell disappointed with their current entry CM Flare Infinity with a MTK Helio P10 4GB RAM for $260! Kinda like how ASUS did with Zenfone Pegasus 3S.
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2017Don't waste your money and time It's been 6 months but still Indian 1st gen and 2nd gen device... moreas they promised, they keep up for 18 months guaranteed updates and upgrade. I'm using since July 2015 - do not put negative comments if you do not actually know about that.
AnonD-560303, 18 Jan 2017It probably won't have decent specs. Look at bq a 4.5, (i think it's the last one they releas... moreBut the Cherry Mobile One G1 has a 5" 720P HD display, 16 GB storage and 2 GB of RAM in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 with 13MP/5MP cameras. It's only priced at maybe below PHP 6,000 (Philippines) There is also the General Mobile 4G somewhere in Europe with the same specs.

Anonymous, 18 Jan 2017US? maybe I'm wrong,but I think other places need this Android One better..You never visit US, right? Hollywood film is not common reality life here. Cost of living (food, health care, housing) is expensive for some people too. Also retired people need this kind of cellphone.
Base on the experience I have with Android One phone, specifically the Cheery Mobile phone in Philippines. Good Luck for those who are planning to buy. I bought one of those phone (Cherry Mobile Flare s3 power) and I was just able to use it for 3 months and it suddenly stops working without any reasons. I haven't drop the phone nor any water spills on it. Well , it just cost me $100 to buy that phone. But still a waste of money..
sr777, 18 Jan 2017Why no one is manufacturing 4" phones anymore? The phones today are too big. 4" phones are way too small and unacceptable you can't even write a note dude wtf
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2017US? maybe I'm wrong,but I think other places need this Android One better..They're already in a lot of other locations. The US has plenty of poor people too. They aren't all rich.
I'm not too worried about the size as long as it has sd625. That's the standard this year for that price range... A fingerprint sensor and good speakers and I'd be in at $200...
sr777, 18 Jan 2017Why no one is manufacturing 4" phones anymore? The phones today are too big.Because 4inch too small to watch videos. There also people that are fat with fat hands. Or simply big hand people. Also, manufacturer need to cramp all the latest flagship features in it. Hardware size are pretty big, thus making phablet are easier. Cramping large hardware into a small 4 inch smartphone; sure but you left with nothing but a low budget specs. No stereo speaker, small battery, no fingerprint sensor, no front camera, no dual camera, no led flash, no high res display(impossible to build 720p at 4inch), no extra features at all. This size problem making it pretty much impossible unless manufacturer gives it super thick bezel with super thick body. Thats why iphones 4 incher omit pretty much everything a flagship iphone should have. Look at iphone 5c. This left android 4 incher only reserved for low budget phone.
It probably won't have decent specs. Look at bq a 4.5, (i think it's the last one they released). Crappy entry level mediatek 1ghz quad-core with mali 720 mp1 (besides being last gen gpu, is one of the weakest, if not the weakest from mali), 1gb of ram or 2 and 16gb of storage, and costing 170 or 190 depending on the amount of ram you choose. Absolutely ridicolous pricing when there are brands out there like xiaomi that offer great performing devices like redmi note 3 pro 3/32 at the same price. Not even the 5 year warranty or the 2-year updates from google are enough to buy it since you probably won't keep the phone 5 years and these days rom changing has become really easy as anyone can follow a tutorial on you on how to the procedure step-by-step, being really easy to keep the phone updated.
Anonymous, 18 Jan 2017Yeah, Pixels are overpriced. Glad to see Google has acknowledged this.Yes, the price will be $200-$300, but with terrible spec. So still expensive for the spec....
US? maybe I'm wrong,but I think other places need this Android One better..

Bring me a sub 5" device with a decent camera and i'll buy it. Bring another midranger with a 5"+ screen and you're just competing in an already cluttered market I have tons of choice in, the US doesn't need another offering in that area.
I said this back when Pixels were announced. It was only logical to expand AO. With devices like GM 5 Plus, I don't see it not being successful.
It must be practically the next gen Nexus 5, isn't it?
However, made by LG suggests its battery life would be unacceptable crap
