Cherry Mobile Cosmos X: Cheapest Super AMOLED Android Phone in the Philippines
Cherry Mobile Cosmos X is the cheapest Super AMOLED Android phone in the Philippines with a 1.2 GHz quad core processor and 18 + 8 Megapixel cameras priced at ₱9,999.00.
Cherry Mobile released Cosmos X as part of the Cosmos Series in an explosive fashion on July 24, 2013. Just three days later, Cosmos X is already available from different retailers.
Cherry Mobile Cosmos X Speed and Performance with AnTuTu Benchmark Score
Cherry Mobile Cosmos X runs on a quad core processor from MediaTek clocked at 1.2 GHz. This processor works together with a PowerVR SGX544MP graphics processing unit, 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 32 GB using a micro SD card.
When Cherry Angel tested a Cherry Mobile Cosmos X unit using the AnTuTu Benchmark app, it displayed a score of 12,911. That’s a good score considering that the unit wasn’t rooted yet.
Cosmos X’s battery might disappoint you with its 1,800 mAh capacity. But that won’t be a problem since it has a less power hungry Super AMOLED display.

The feature that grabs your attention when it comes to Cherry Mobile Cosmos X is its Super AMOLED display. It makes Cosmos X display text, pictures and videos with crisp detail and high contrast.
There are no physical buttons in the front side of Cosmos X. The home, back and options buttons show up on the lower portion of the screen when you press the power button.
You shouldn’t worry buying a screen guard for Cosmos X since it is protected from scratches by a layer of Gorilla Glass 2.
Since Cosmos X runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, it should have the wireless display feature. But Cherry Mobile did not mention that in the launching event.
Cherry Mobile Cosmos X 18 + 8 MP Cameras
When it comes to the cameras, you’ll be amazed by the 18 Megapixel camera at the back of Cherry Mobile Cosmos X. For the front facing camera, there’s an 8 Megapixel shooter that can take amazing selfies. Both cameras are autofocus with Backside Illuminated sensors that create high quality images even in a dark environment.

A peculiar detail that I noticed with the AnTuTu system info is the 20.2 Megapixel rating for the camera. Another is the main camera that protrudes at the back which might turn some people off.

Cosmos X has a complete set of connectivity features needed by Pinoys. It’s a dual sim phone with 3G capability but also connects to EDGE and GPRS when 3G is not available in your area.
WiFi and WiFi hotspot can also be created using Cosmos X along with Bluetooth, GPS and MicroUSB connection.
