Today, we’ll take a look at the newest addition to Cherry Mobile’s OMEGA lineup of smartphones. A device that’s very compact and remains pocket friendly, while offering basic functionality for casual users.
The OMEGA Lite 4 has a 5-inch display with FWVGA+ resolution. And while that’s a bit outdated in 2018, even for a budget phone, a lower resolution means that there’s less pixels for the GPU to push, which in turn gives you more uptime
Under the hood is a MediaTek MT6580 quad-core processor, along with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage, expandable with a microSD card.
At the back is an 8MP camera, while the opposite side houses a 5MP snapper. The panel can also be removed to give you access to the SIM card slot, microSD card slot, and the removable battery.
It runs on Android Oreo Go edition, which is specifically designed for entry-level devices. Even with just 1GB of RAM, navigating the user interface is pretty smooth and snappy. Thanks to the trimmed down version of Android, apps also seem to open slightly faster.
While a 2,000mAh power pack sounds unimpressive, the lower screen resolution should give you more hours, and with only light usage in mind, it still should be enough to get you through you entire workday without having to recharge.
For only PhP2,999, I really can’t complain too much about what this phone can do. It isn’t designed for heavy use or gaming, but is something that’s more of a reliable daily driver.
