Cherry Mobile Fights Back With 64-bit, LTE Ready Cosmos Two for Php 5,499

Cosmos 2 1

Check out this affordable LTE device from Cherry Mobile

We were wondering when local brands would respond to the offerings of international companies like Alcatel and Lenovo, and it looks like we just got the answer from Cherry Mobile in the form of the Cosmos Two. The Cosmos Two sports many key features that users look for, including a 5-inch HD display, 64-bit processor and more importantly, LTE.

The Cosmos Two is priced at just Php 5,499. It’s a clear challenger to the affordable bang for the buck phones that have been coming out recently and more importantly, Cherry Mobile is looking to leverage on their distinct advantage in distribution (it’s not an online exclusive) to compete with other brands. The Cosmos Two will be available in stores this weekend.

  1. Cherry Mobile CEO: Since we have our new Cosmos, You know what we say to the big four?
    Crowd: What?
    Cherry Mobile CEO: Lenovo, Meizu, Alcatel and Asus…SUKK IT! *xpacsukkit.3gp*

    1. I would prefer if they stick to Kitkat 4.4.4 as it’s the most stable Android right now. Would be stupid if they went straight to that buggy 5.0 Lollipop. It’s still better though if they can update it straight to 5.1.

      1. Odds are, it MAY be in the works right now, but CM’s update track record is absolutely spotty.

        And to be fair, Lollipop is buggy as anything, but with any successive Android version, there were big bugs – The transition from Gingerbread to ICS was jarring. So was to Jellybean. And Kitkat. And Lollipop. Kitkat KILLED SD card support for apps; Lollipop gave that ability back! Kitkat introduced a new runtime that was more fluid and battery efficient, that was institutionalised in Lollipop, so all new apps are optimised for Lollipop now. 64 bit support for better performance and efficiency was introduced in Lollipop.

  2. yan ba ang fightback ng cherry mobile sa bang for the buck international brands? taena, anong klaseng fightback yan. SUPOT!

  3. mga tira tirang parts na lang ata ang kinuha ng cherry para makamura. 1gb ram? boooo! mt6732? booo again. 2100mah? pinaka booooo sa lahat. haist.

  4. Mediatek 6732 is comparable to snapdragon 615. Cosmos two is not bad at all at its price range. It is cheaper than O+ 4g Evo which has almost same specs with it. I hope there shall be at least 2gb ram and 16gb of storage of incoming cherry mobile phones under 5-6k pesos.

  5. It’s a good and cheap alternative to Alcatel Flash Plus, if you really need LTE. And even better than CM’s current line up in the same price range. MT6732 easily beats MT6592M (current CM phones) for gaming with more powerful Mali-T760 GPU.

  6. With the appearance and specs of the phone, para talaga siyang ZOPO ZP530. According sa mga review maganda ang reputation nya.. and sa website ng zopo. kitkat pa talaga sana may lollipop talaga.. Mtk 6732 is really better compared to 6592…

  7. OOOOH! SHOTS FIRED! But I doubt that anybody would buy this because of the specs. For me, all of that is okay.

  8. guys may mkikipag swap sakin ng cosmos two. zenfone 5 tooj 16gb yung phone ko tapos add daw sya 500? fair enough na po ba?
