Both Iceberg and Cosmos Z enjoys an ample amount of RAM in running apps and high quality graphics brought by their PowerVR graphics processing units.

  3. The real question here: kamusta ba ang reliability, quality and after sales support ng cherry vs MP? Kasi Kung sa specs Lang, lupit Talaga ng cherry.. I haven't owned a phone from either brand so wala ako masabi.. What do you guys think?

    1. That's right. Customers MUST consider the after sales service from both brands. Based on a lot of reports, MyPhone has a better after sales service compared to Cherry Mobile.

    2. "Cherry Mobile Cosmos Z offers a stunning pixel density of 441 PPI" did you test this unit if it is true? kasi ang ganda sa paningin ang ganda ng specs, pero iba sa actual unit...nadala na ako sa FLARE nila na IPS daw kuno, pero di pala.....I Think it is just another marketing strategy ng INTSIK na may ari ng Cherry Mobile. Knowing Chinese people mangugulang talaga yan para kumita lang ng malaki. May NTC issue pa na walang permit ang flare see this....

  10. TARA is not a pinoy app. Get your facts right.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Pinoy app is separate from Tara Anti-Theft. This is evidenced by both apps being listed separately in the same way as Clever Motion and Wireless Display.
      We all know this, and it's quite obvous. Maybe you just didn't notice..

  12. Bought Myphone Iceberg from the launching event, and when i got home after testing the fone for few hours, i found out that there was a deadpixel, then the next day, i went to automatic center eastwood branch (the retailer from that event) to have my unit to be replace, and the sales personel change the unit immediately. now, im enjoying this unit in every aspect of it. the only downside is, it doesnt have a memory card slot. battery last up to 2 days of medium use (fone calls, texting, gaming, downloads, and browsing).

  13. when it comes to specs dbest ng cherry. pero myphone is maganda talga in terms of services and durability. this 2 brand really competes hard. ang starmobile di pa ako sure. medyo mahirap pa yata ang parts nyan. starmobile diamond same camera pixel with cherry cosmos z and sa ghz is same sa myphone iceberg. di ko lang sure if kung totoong mas matindi pa daw ang cosmos z kaysa sa super amoled ng s4.

  15. I'd go for myphone esp. in terms of quality. Ang Cherry kasi sa sobrang bilis mgrelease ng new model di mo na nafefeel ang value nang na purachase mung phone which is bad in the long run. Thanks for the comparison:)
