When your smart phone’s battery is not very supportive with your life’s activity and having a power bank handy is not very healthy for the battery lifespan either you tend to look for a very reliable power source to suite your need. Unfortunately when searching on Google doesn’t do any good with this locally manufactured phone as its not really giving the best solution to your problem. Thanks Facebook group for giving me the idea. You might want to check this group as well if you are a
Cherry Mobile Flare S3 user like me.
This is where i got the idea of Linux modified battery, and to return the best news i had for my phone, i am extending this review for those people who has doubt at first.
This battery i got is 4500 mah for 750 Php and it comes with a free Alibaba slim armor. Since it has more batt capacity , i dont expect that it will be fitted like the stock battery, its more bulky in actual and the reason why it comes with a slim armor case is that you can no longer use the back cover of your phone .
Lets talk about performance , since am all data user the stock battery of 1800 mah would hardly last an hour. Now for a week of using this Linux my phone can survive 1and a half day of data usage with video streaming (data on and off, youtube video stream, spotify music. For straight data usage this can last up to 9-10 hours) i am not quite sure for data gaming . *sorry i am not a hard core gamer, i cant tell*
These are my battery stats while using it as i write this down ..
Thats quite a hype if your a phone dependent person like me. Like my tv, radio, camer, phone, and computer is what i call my handy dandy smartphone flare s3 .
When i got this for the first time the reseller did provided me with information necessary like how to calibrate the battery, charging instructions and all that. It also has like 15% default battery charge which to my surprise lasted for almost 4 hours (with data on and off usage)
Heres a screenshot after calibrating the battery with battery life app few hours after i got the linux.
The usual charging can take up to 8-12 hours depending on what type of charger you use. I never use the stock charger of fs3 anymore because its taking forever to charge (i am impatient of waiting so understand that 10 hours for me is long enough without a phone in my hand) . I use my Alcatel charger instead for it takes only 5-7 hours to have it fully charged. I can just sleep , wake up and unplug the charger .
I have drained the battery till its dead after i got it, then charged it from 1:30 pm to 11pm manila time with the stock charger while the phone is off . To calibrate the battery (for accuracy of battery stats purposes , like the screenshots i am posting) you will need to use up all your battery’s charge and recharge it while phone is off twice . You’ll not only thank your self doing this just by seeing good stats on your phone but in the long run, this will keep the health and lifespan of the battery too. And of course its still not advisable to use the phone while charging ( and i don’t see a reason to still do that knowing what your battery can do for you). Soon you’ll notice a routine of charging time, like for me i usually charge it in the afternoon before going to sleep if the battery is already below 10% , but if not i am assured that my phone will still save my tomorrow.
My phone is not rooted yet so i use manual calibration plus Battery Life App, if yours is rooted then there are a lot of applications to calibrate it like greenify (im sure you have much knowledge about a rooted phone than i do ;))
If your convinced enough with the Linux modified battery and planning to buy heres where i got mine. Contact these persons base on your location, some numbers are posted as well so give it a shot! (Joine the fb group for cherry mobile fs3 users *link above* to get the contact number of other reseller . They also do shipping :mrgreen:)
Other Cherry Mobile models are also available like for Me vibe , Flare Xl etc. . For hard core gamer there is also 6500 mah . Just contact those people posted they know more about other products they offer.
All in all , i am satisfied with my phone specs plus the linux battery . My phone can rest from charging every now and then , and i am happy going over a day without me having to be stuck beside a power outlet.
