Cherry Mobile Flare S5 from Lazada
My husband’s phone has been broken for a while and he decided that it’s time to get a new phone as it is a hassle having an ill-performing phone. We are not one for going for high-end phones that are super expensive like Samsung, iPhone, LG, and the like. We only need something for basic phone usage like texting, playing games, and photo taking here and there. So we always opt for something more budget-friendly.
Cherry Mobile is one of the pioneer Filipino mobile brands and so my husband browsed for the latest phone releases. He settled on having the Flare S5 which was Php 5,699 but was on sale for Php 3,899 based on the Cherry Mobile website. We checked Lazada and because of a Flash Sale, it’s now down to Php 3,499. However, my husband wanted to have the unit already as he seems excited to finally be able to get a new phone.
So we went to the Cyberzone at SM Sta. Mesa and had a look around at several phones. When we got to the Cherry Mobile Store, they are selling the Flare S5 at Php 3,899. The Php 400 discount from Lazada seems a really nice deal so we immediately bought one from the site online.
My husband registered for an account even though there were no need to do so if you want to buy for quick checkout. He just wants to be able to track of his orders as he is planning to buy lots of stuff after a quick browse of the tools section. Anyway, we do not have credit cards so it is good that Lazada offers Cash On Delivery. We just input the shipping details and that is it! We’re done ordering and the waiting time has begun.
The very next morning, we were surprised to receive a text that our delivery is already on the way. And merely two hours after the text, the phone has been delivered already! My husband was really happy with the fast delivery! He was expecting it to arrive within at least 3 days but Lazada sure has done its job well.
Here is a picture of the phone packaging. We checked it and the phone is working well. No damages whatsoever.
All in all, our experience at Lazada always seems to exceed the previous one and the service just keeps getting better and better. We definitely will be ordering again soon!
