  1. Looks ok for the price. Need to see how the SD615 would fare in the benchmark tests. I think Cherry Mobile has a winner here. But a full reveiw would tell it this is worth the wait. Sana mareview mo na ito Sir John 🙂

      1. di ka yata nababasa ng review at comparison.. talo ng mid range mediatek 6752 (chipset in meizu m1 note) ang snapdragon 615.. basa2x muna bago comment..para kang walang alam nyan

  3. Wow, not bad, actually, and with a Qualcomm SoC there’s more potential for development and custom ROMs than with a Mediatek SoC.

  4. same price sa zenfone 2 ze551ml 2gb/16gb pro wala ni isang rason pra piliin ko ito ksa zenfone 2.. ang snapdragon 615 same performance lng sa mediatek mt6752 sa meizu m1 note.. meron dn alcatel flash plus 6.5k lng 3500mAh p kompara sa 2260 nito.

    1. Hindi naman siguro. Pwede pa, pero mas reasonable naman siya sa overpriced MyPhone Infinity 2 handsets. Pero of course mas sulit pa din yung Flash Plus/Lenovo A7000/Zenfone 2.

      Ang competition nitong Cosmos S2 is yung Huawei P8 Lite. Obviously sa aesthetics mas maganda tignan yung S2 and P8 Lite over the bulky and generic looking Flash Plus/A7000/Zenfone 2.

      1. Thank you! Finally, nagcomment ka. Di ko alam pero ang daming tao dito na alcatel/lenovo/meizu lang laman ng utak.

    1. ang pintas ko lang sa Zenfone 2 ung isang simslot hindi man lang 3g, kahit ba hindi dual LTE ung isa man lang 2g, mabagal mag fb kasi sa 2g

  5. ano po ang advantage nito over asus zenfone 2, lenovo k3 note, alcatel flash plus, or huawei honor 4x to deserve a 9,999 price? mukhang maliit yung battery kumpara sa iba na 3,000 and above.

    1. amoled screen lng.. hehe. yung battery nya pang quadcore arm cortex a7.. mas makunsumo kc cortex a53 n gmit sa snapdragon 615 siguro battery performance nito prehas lang sa zenfone 5 or mas mababa p..

      1. naku, madali nga malowbat ang zenfone 5 ko. kung ganon, antayin ko na lang yung lenovo k3 note. sabi ng novotech, padating na. tingin ko, mga 8-9K lang yun.

  6. it has a qualcomm soc but at 10k… that’s just a hard sell with so many international and reputable chinese brands available starting at the 7k price range.

  7. what happened to cherry mobile’s pang-masa pricing? mas mahal pa sa mga international brands na bang for the buck. same price lang sa asus zenfone 2, syempre mas pipiliin ng tao yung asus. meron pa alcatel, huawei, meizu at lenovo. sana maglabas din ang myphone at starmobile pero dapat, yung price kapareho lang ng mga phone na yan.

  8. My Cosmos X2 is still alive and kicking since September 2013. Time for me to replace with this Cosmos S2. Other brands/models are good, just that I am used to Amoled display on a phone less than half the price of Samsung.

  9. It is not enough to compete with intetnational bang for buck phones. Pati Cherry Mobile ay sablay din sa pricing. reasonable ang price ng cosmos s2 kung nasa 7k pesos and below.

  10. Bezel and battery fail! Kahit pareho presyo nyan mas pipiliin ko pa rin international brands by merit of having more developers. At mas maraming parts and accessories ang mga sikat na models.

  11. low quality mga battery ng cherry mobile… ever since 2012 pa ako gumagamit ng cm, low talaga. we should our money on lenovo or alcatel. better quality battery. on local, starmob has better batterry regardless of capacity

  12. Gawin nilang 8k bibili ako
    Mahal ang 10k
    Makakabili na ko ng solid na phone may power bank pa at headset for 10k

    Meizu m1 note =8599
    Lenovo a7000 =7499 free audiotechnica
    Alcatel flash plus =6490

    Save 1400 to 3400 php

  13. This is the Micromax Canvs Knight 2 rebranded by Cherry Mobile just for your information guys. 🙂

  14. Got to try this phone yesterday. Things to consider this phone over AFP/A7000:
    1. Metal + Glass Body Constrution, just premium feel over plastic body.
    2. AMOLED screen, it’s just gorgeous to look at, even at HD resolution.
    3. Better Camera, Sony IMX214, sharp image even in indoor shots.
    4. The 6.3mm thin body

    I didn’t include Meizu M1 Note as it’s a good contender. The FullHD screen is a major advantage and higher clocked cpu vs AFP & A7000.

  15. Ang mamahal ng phone na alm nio ako meron alm lg g2 6,500 lng,eto ung Soc nya snapdragon 800 ung processor,jelly bean pero upgradable sa lollipop ung antutu NASA 41,000+ pa,sayang nkabli na m ng Acer e600 pero OK nmn 2ng Acer lahat ok ,hung internal lng nasa 4gb lng….pero ung speed 21mbps ung pnakamahina is 5-6mbps snapdragon 400 lng 2ng phone ko pero matibay ang battery Kant 2,500mah lng…….
