The Knight X has some serious competition

As promised, Cherry Mobile officially unveiled the Cosmos One Plus today. The Cosmos One Plus is the company’s most advanced phone to date, and it’s obvious that the company is going after Starmobile and their Knight X flagship with their newest offering.

Cosmos One Plus specs

  • MediaTek MT6595M octa-core processor with big.LITTLE technology (2.0GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A17, 1.7GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7)
  • PowerVR IMG Rogue G6200 GPU
  • 3GB of RAM
  • 5.5-inch full HD IPS display with Gorilla Glass 2 protection, 1920 x 1080 resolution
  • 32GB of storage, expandable via microSD up to 64GB
  • 14-megapixel rear camear, Sony IMX 214 sensor with BSI
  • 8-megapixel front camera
  • Dual-SIM, Dual LTE

The Cosmos One Plus will be rolled out in selected stores and kiosks, though the price remains elusive as this point – we’ve heard that the device will get an SRP of Php 13,999, though we’re still trying to confirm. If it does retail at that price, then Starmobile has their work cut out for them, as the One Plus is priced 2K lower than the similarly specc’d Knight X.

  1. For Cherry Mobile Users // intended to use Cherry mobile Products: Pls read this
    I am not a hater// basher of cherry mobile Products – In fact, I’ve been using their product for 3 years – I had an Omega HD 2.0. and I’ve purchased 2 other phones for my brother and sister,
    I recommended it as well to my GF and she purchased an Apollo.. I’m always depending Pinoy Phone companies from Bashers.. But I would just like to share what happened recently…
    I decided to purchase a tablet for my GF as a gift.. so I purchased the CM Navigator.. I did an extensive review on the device(taragis, technobaboy etc..) and it seems like a really good deal..
    But after just 4 days of buying it.. the auto rotate function isn’t working anymore, the touch screen started acting out and the ( VC) voice calling video (front cam) is not showing on the
    Tablet. Its still under the 7 days replacement warranty so we brought it back to the store where we purchased it on the last day of the warranty and I swear the tablet is in brand new state
    ( no scratches or bumps.. Hell, its just 7 days old !!! ) what happened is that there are 2 attendants there.. 1st attendant checked the tablet and did the factory reset ( 2x).. after checking it, she
    said that it is definitely for replacement.. she then asked her colleague to check it so 2nd attendant looked at the tablet as well.. she removed the sim and the micro sd out.. I did not know what
    happened but after the 2nd attendant checked the tablet.. she suddenly said that the camera lens cap is missing.. the 1st attendant then said that they can’t replace it anymore since there is a
    missing part!!! The weird part is they didn’t even bother to look for it and they don’t really seemed surprise!!! I mean, is it that easy for their devices to lose the lens cap?!!! They said that I
    should just bring the device on the service center (after just 7 days!!!) !!!After having a long discussion and debate w/ them.. My GF just gave up and decided to bring the tablet to the service
    center.. you know what happened?.. She was advised to leave the tablet and provided and turnaround time of 2 WEEKS to 1 MONTH!!! And for the lens cap.. 2 WEEKS as well!!! WTF!!!
    Everything that happened is so frustrating… So, for you guys who might encounter the same issue.. a piece of advise.. when you bring your gadget for a repalcement to a CHERRY MOBILE
    STORE.. don’t let it out of your sight!!! Have them inspect the gadget in front of you!! Or take a pict of the device before you have them check it.. I really believe that we were conned..
    But it’s their KARMA not ours.. Just giving you guys some heads up.. this could really be a new SCAM… I would really like to hear from you guys.. whats your take on this?..

  2. 1. Dapat sa mga nag rereview ng gadgets.. inii inform nyo din mga customer nyo sa totoong sitwasyon.. I’ve been watching Filipino reviewers for quite some time now.. lahat yan.. technoclast, jamonline, pinoyscreencast, gadgetpilipinas,taragis, yugatech, etc.. lahat puro pahapyaw lang.. pabiro nyong sinasabi na palya ang serbisyo ng CM.. bakit di kau maging informative.. sabihin nyo literal sa mga consumers na ITONG PRODUCT NA TO, MADALING MASIRA AT PANGIT ANG SERBISYO NG SERVICE CENTERS.. para naman magkaroon ng fighting chance ung mga bibili.. at the same time baka magising naman ung mismong company kasi may nag aalert sa kanila.. wala kaming laban eh.. marami sa min lumapit na sa P%$#&^%$#@ DTI na yan.. alam nyo sasabihin?.. We hope than both parties will be able to settle the matter accordingly!!! WTF?!!!! kaya nga lumapit sa inyo e para imbestigahan nyo tapos ganun isasagot nyo?!!!!

    1. If sinabi nila na madali masira then probably hindi na sila bibigyan ng review unit and kasuhan pa sila 🙂

        1. Chismis?.. cge dude.. tanungin mo ko about sa CM para magka alaman tau kung sino kamote.. I’m sharing the story para wala nang ibang matulad sa kin.. kung ayaw muh makinig, e di bumili ka nang bumili.. walang umaawat sayo.. 🙂

      1. This is the same aries na nagcreate ng bagong fb account para tirahin lahat ng mga negative comments sa cosmos sa fb! Mukhang pakawala ng cherry yang aries na yan!

  3. sir john nieves, NASIRA na po ba yung CHERRY MOBILE infinix pure xl na unit ninyo? hndi na kasi nareview ng unbox.
