Roughly around two weeks before it hits the market, we got our hands on an Android One phone made by local manufacturer – the Cherry Mobile G1.

The first thing that will catch your attention is its price. The G1 retails for P5,999 (roughly around $130). Competitively priced, the G1 is very much in line with Google’s mission for the Android One initiative.

The phone has two micro-slim slots, one of which supports LTE/4G. It’s also the first Android One phone with 64-bit processor for better computing power.
