Looking for a bang the buck kind of device isn’t as hard as it was years ago, with the competition rising steadily, more companies are coming in to provide a significantly well-built device with specs that comes on par with bigger players in the market. As the number of international companies surges in, our top local brands are not holding their horses from the competition and instead has one of their own to compete with. Cherry Mobile for instance is a key player in the local mobile scene with devices that ranges from the lowest-end close to a cent handset to their top of the line offerings, the company is all set to compete with the top players in the business with number of handset popping now and then with an affordable price tag.
Keeping the phase forward, Cherry Mobile introduced the new Cherry Mobile COSMOS 2, this is indeed a considerably spec’d handset tagged with an irresistible low price of less than 6K Php. Its highlights are a 5-inch HD display with On-Cell full lamination feature with is a 64-bit 4-core MediaTek processor running at 1.5 GHz and a faster wireless network connectivity with LTE support. It comes with a modest 1 GB of RAM which is by one’s opinion an unfortunate not utilizing most of the chipset’s capabilities. As it has become a standard with locally branded devices lately, the CM: COSMOS TWO will get an 8 GB of on-board storage with a microSD support of up to 64 GB of microSD cards.
These days, the cameras on smartphones are a standard feature and as far as we could tell, the COMOS TWO plays pretty well in this department. On the back there’s a 14 Megapixel camera equipped with Backside Illumination (BSI) sensor along with an LED flash. On the front, there is a complementary 5 Megapixel camera for all our selfie needs.
Despite being new in the market, the COSMOS TWO still runs with Android 4.4 KitKat which is a bit disappointing knowing that Lollipop is driving the latest devices in the market but still, with the price that you pay, expect these drawbacks to come along with it. Powering the device is the 2100 mAh battery and by the looks of it, its removable and replaceable which is a better deal.
