  1. A quick check of the specifications, particularly the screen and the processor, shows that the Cherry Mobile Candies is as basic as you can get. I’m a Samsung smartphone user and my unit needs to be recharge every 3-4 days depending upon usage. Given that the Candies are dual sim, I’m guessing that the battery life would be about 2 days, max. I just hope that Cherry Mobile provided an additional battery for free. As per the quality of build, it quite another story. Quality Control/Quality Assurance during manufacturing is much to be desired. I’ve checked all the units (low-to high-end) and they are not comparable to Samsung or Nokia. Really. Given the prices, build quality was definitely sacrificed.
