What to do if your new Cherry Mobile Flare S7 won't turn on

Cherry Mobile has recently released its flagship for 2018, the Flare S7 (and its variants). For its price, it's a good deal. The phone runs the Android 8.1.0 Oreo and it's surprisingly responsive. But we're not going to talk about how good or bad this phone is. I'm more into solving problems owners may encounter while using it.

I bought the Cherry Mobile Flare S7 for my 6-year-old son who wants to play Minecraft all day long. It does the job done and it can actually play more graphics-intensive games like Real Racing, NFS, etc. However, we already encountered a couple of times wherein the phone just stopped responding and got stuck on the black screen. It wouldn't respond when the power key is pressed and held and it won't even respond to its charger.

The black screen of death issue is a common problem with Android devices. Even premium devices like Samsung Galaxy S9 and Note 9 also have such kind of problem. So, for Cherry Mobile devices, it's expected that sooner or later you'll encounter similar issue. Good thing Cherry Mobile phones have removable batteries so it's actually pretty easy to fix a device that would no longer turn on. With all that being said, here's what you should do if your Cherry Mobile Flare S7 is also stuck on the black screen and won't respond or turn on...
  1. Remove the back cover carefully. 
  2. Pull the battery out.
  3. While the battery isn't mounted, press and hold the power key for a minute or two.
  4. Replace the battery and make sure it's properly mounted. 
  5. Secure the battery with the back cover.
  6. Now, press and hold the Power key and your Cherry Mobile Flare S7 should boot up.
If, for some reason your phone is still not responding after this procedure, then it's time you brought it back to the store and have the tech check it up for you.
