Cherry Mobile Omega HD 2.0 versus Comos X: Tough Choice

If you are looking for a full-sized Android smartphone priced at about 10K, Cherry Mobile is making life difficult for you with two offerings to chose from: the Omega HD 2.0 and the Cosmos X. Both phones are top in class in terms of processing power, RAM and storage. 

Cherry Mobile new Cosmos X

Display. The Omega HD 2.0 has a 5-inch IPS 720 (720 x 1280 pixel resolution) display, while the Cosmos X has a smaller 4.7-inch Super AMOLED 720p display. The size difference is actually bigger than it sounds. The Omega HD 2.0 has dedicated home, back and task selection buttons. The Cosmos X has on-screen keys, which means that the remaining screen size when the hardware buttons are displayed is about 4.4-inches. The soft keys do minimize for some tasks like video playback and gaming.

Physical size. The on screen soft keys of the Cosmos X results in a smaller, handier device, but not as small as one might expect.
  • Omega HD 2.0 (5-inches) - 143.5 x 70.8 x 8.8 mm
  • Cosmos X (4.7-inches) - 135 x 69.7 x 7.5 mm (not including the camera bulge)
  • Cherry Mobile Knight (4.7-inches) - 138 x 66.7 x 7.5 mm


Battery size and expected battery life. The Omega HD 2.0 comes with a 2100 mAh battery, while the Cosmos X comes with a smaller 1800 mAh battery. Given the display of the Cosmos X is smaller, it will consume less battery life while the screen is on. However, the difference between IPS and Super AMOLED technology comes into play.

Super AMOLED displays are more battery-efficient when displaying black and dark colors, making them much more power-efficient in tasks like video playback. Super AMOLED displays consume more power when they display white or bright backgrounds like websites, making them less power efficient for tasks like web browsing. Overall, I would expect the Omega HD 2.0 to have marginally better battery life.

Price. The Omega HD 2.0 is the cheaper of the two devices at Php8,999 versus the PhpPhp9,990 of the Cosmos X. 

In the end, I would think the choice depends on how much the buyer wants a Super AMOLED display. Overall, I prefer the Omega HD 2.0.

    1. I think the Omega's Camera Will do .. But if you like pictures and you wanted a more Detailed front facing camera , pick the Cosmos . But in many angles , the Omega is right for me , the styling , camera , size , battery and everything looks Expensive !

  6. You didn't mention about the camera resolution, cosmos x has a 18 megapixel back camera and 5 megapixel front camera. omega hd design is too gayish for me. It's not that tough choice..COSMOS X rocks!

    1. Cosmos are not really 18 megapixel, in engineering measure, it's a 12 megapixel the same as the OHD 2.0..

  14. Omega HD 2 is better in market value and has a higher sells compare to Cosmo x. The only advantage of cosmo is Super Amoled and the higher camera but I would still get the omega hd2 with its nice 5" screen.
