During the last couple of weeks, I was able to test one of the latest products of Cherry Mobile, Cosmos S.

Cosmos S Review 6

Unboxing

When you get the Cosmos S, you’ll receive the usual contents of a new phone from Cherry Mobile. But, it’s a good thing that CM managed to include 2 free casings, which you an use alternatively.

What’s In the Box

  • 1 Cherry Mobile Cosmos S
  • 2 Additional Covers (black and red)
  • 1 Charger/USB connector
  • 1 Earphone
  • 1 User Manual
  • 1 Warranty Card

Check the photos below to see the stuff you’ll get:

First Impression
Holding CM Cosmos S for the first time, it felt like it can easily slip from your fingers. Countless times I accidentally pressed the lock/unlock/power button. What I like about it is that its screen is crisp and vibrant, and its 5 inch screen compliments perfectly with it.

Quad-Core
While browsing the specs of CM Cosmos S, I was exited to test the performance of its Quad Core immediately. it works perfectly well when I tried loading in low requirement games like Candy Crush, Little Empire and Minions Rush.

Asphalt 8

Playing games like Asphalt 8 & Demon Hunter 4, I can now feel the stutter. To test it further, I tried loading Little Empire together with Asphalt 8, and by doing this, you can no longer enjoy Asphalt 8 because of too much lag.

Camera
I’m impressed with the camera’s quality. Even with low light or no light, it still produces quality images.

Battery
Unfortunately, the battery of this device cannot stand up to long hours of gaming (and non-stop calls). There were a couple of times its battery has failed me while I’m on support. My advise whenever you see Cosmos S under 30% battery life, recharge it.

Verdict

This product can compare head to head with other brands in terms of processor performance and quality screen resolution. What I don’t like about CM Cosmos S is its battery life, knowing a fully charged gadget will not last the whole day will take away your peace of mind. I think what most people like about Cherry Mobile is that it can give us quality gadgets for very low price.

With that being said, we would love to hear your thoughts if it is a worthy investment.

  1. i think the battery life is good enough for a whole day of texting, about max of 5hrs of internet thru wifi everyday and 5 hrs of music. i use it almost everyday like this and have spare battery life to enjoy 2k14 at night . Cosmos S is great. i recommend it

  2. its dragon trail glass thingy is not what i expected it to be like. i dont know how they do their demonstrations on it, but with practical daily use of someone as carefree as me with my gadgets, gosh!!!, what an unsightly screen do i have now, there’s this one deep scratch on my phone, its very first and followed by more and more and even more small scratches. i kinda hate that part of advertising, over estimating or exagerating their products capabilities. and they had a delayed release of its screen protector and even the casing.

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter.

Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic.

Check them out and drool.
