It's clear that the Flare 4 has better white balance compared to My35 even if the shot is a little de-saturated. However, My35 wins big when it comes to color reproduction in a warmer tone as the subject nearly looks that way in person. Winner: My35 (1 point)

Sharpness / Noise

The Cherry Mobile Flare S4 doesn't handle noise very well as a result you get photo results that are has more grains when you zoom it. On the other hand, My35 takes softer pictures but with less noise. Winner: My35 (2 points)

My35

On subjects taken with good distance, to my surprise, the Flare 4 clearly bested My35! It's sharper, more accurate and more natural for this round. While the My35 shows prettier colors for the most part, notice that it's blurrier and has slightly less details against the Flare 4. Winner: Flare 4 (1 point)

Macro

Again, the My35 shows better color reproduction and better background blur, but when you look closer at the condensation on the glass, Flare 4 shows sharper details. It's a close fight here, but my heart goes to the Flare 4 as I'll choose a subject with better details against the bokeh "wow" at the background. Flare 4 (2 points)

Low light

Flare 4's flash is yellowish, while My35 has a softer white flash. The result, I like the flash of My35 better as it has nicer color accuracy. Winner: My35 (4 points)

Total points

Flare 4 - 3 points
My35 - 4 points

Verdict

As expected, the pricier MyPhone My35 got the better of Cherry Mobile Flare 4. But what surprised me here is, Flare 4 was able to hold its ground and even manage to best My35 in some points. That's impressive for a phone under 5,000 Pesos. Overall, the masses wins big with these two devices are they're both amazing in their respective price range.
