Based on Cherry Mobile's own announcement, I was not expecting the new Cosmos X to be available until August. But the Cherry Mobile Cosmos X started to show up in Cherry Mobile stores last weekend. Announced at Php9,999 the Cosmos X is actually a better value for money proposition than expected. The Php9,999 price comes with a flip cover, back shell and screen protector.
Technology wise, the Cosmos X is the first locally branded phone with a Super AMOLED display. It also offers a treat for those looking for a Nexus like device. The Cosmos X has no physical buttons, but the same soft keys you find on the last two Nexus phones and the latest Sony Xperia handsets.
The phone is impressively thin, at 7.9 mm. Well that is if you do not count the rather large camera bulge at the back. Still, the supplier case solves that issue in my opinion.
