We just unboxed our Cherry Action Cam Explorer, and we are so amazed with the number of stuff tucked inside its retail box! This is Cherry Mobile’s first action camera, and we just can’t wait to take it out for a spin this weekend.
Check out our unboxing video below, and if you can’t see it, click this link.

According to Randolph Novino of PinoyScreenCast, all accessories of SJ4000 will work with the Cherry’s action camera. So, if you’ve already invested so much with your SJ4000, there’s going to be no issue if you get yourself this action camera by Cherry Mobile. Besides, you won’t be spending too much, as this one only costs PhP3,999.
In terms of build and construction, Cherry Explorer is pretty solid. The interchangeable face plate is genius, and the buttons are okay, albeit being flimsy and clicky. Software’s user interface is pretty basic, and very much akin to CD-R King’s Action Camera. It may be paired on Android and iOS, and may be controlled remotely via WiFi. Pretty basic stuff, but such feature is proven to be very effective and helpful especially when you’re travelling alone.
