Cherry Mobile Cosmos Z, first local Full HD quad-core phone

The cream of the crop of Cherry Mobile’s latest Cosmos line of smartphones is the Cosmos Z, which is also the first local-branded Full HD phone in the market. It is also the best-looking one among the four Cosmos phones.

Cherry Mobile Cosmos Z

The Cherry Mobile Cosmos Z sports a 5-inch Full HD IPS screen which is still a small crowd in the current market. The clarity and vibrancy of the images is very evident on this screen. It has a really slim beveled body with the front protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2.

Powering the Cosmos Z is a MT6589T quad-core processor clocking at 1.5GHz, which is the fastest chip MediaTek currently has to offer. It has four power-efficient Cortex-A7 cores on 28nm manufacturing for extremely low power consumption. This phone also has a 1GB RAM plus 8GB internal storage along with microSD support.

Cherry Mobile Cosmos Z back

The back has that Samsung Galaxy look with the brushed finish on a hard plastic panel. There’s an 18-megapixel camera with BSI sensor at the back plus an 8-megapixel front BSI camera. Removing the back panel will reveal its 2000mAh battery.

The Cosmos Z is expected it to be available a few weeks after the release of the Cosmos X and X2 so we’re looking probably at September. It will have a tentative SRP of Php11,999 which might change depending how the first two Cosmos phones fare.

    • panalo nga sa specs eh sa quality naman kaya panalo din??

      • Oo Syempre… ng na try ko sya ay very fast and has vibrant screen.. very loud sounds and also has a brilliant design and build.. ok yun. yung bat. life nya ay tatagal ng walong oras sa pagtex,tawag,and any other moderate use

        • It’s been quiet/silent in the Starmobile camp. Siguro nahihiya na sila sa ginawa nilang pag OVER-HYPE ng Knight.

          This time, cherry mobile is coming up with phones na OGS display, 2Gb Ram, LTE. and lots more.

          Cherry Mobile really knows how to make a happy man cry.

      • naka mamahaling CP ka nga, wala ka naming pang snacks at pang load. kung makabili ka ng load pa sampu-sampong piso lang sa kanto then I-unli txt to all network pa plus 5 mins call. para lang masabi na ang gagara ng CP mo. wala naman pinagkaiba to sa ibang phone,pareho naman nakakatawag, nakaka text and nakaka games.

        ang nakakaganda sa mura, pag need mong gumamit sa public area di masyadong takot kasi pag madukot or snatch di masyadong mabigat sa loob kasi mejo mura nga though maghihinayang ka pa rin syempre pinaghirapan mo rin yang pera mo. sa mga high end, naku di mo talaga pwede yan gamitin sa public place, gagamit ka man pero takot na takot ka kasi pag nadukot or na snatch yan, iiyak ka talaga ng ga balde. san mo naman hanapin yang P30 plus. mga 1 1/2 months n sweldohan din yan. pag yan ang nawala, di ka na kakain nyan ng isang buwan. kaya ok na rin ang mga low end phones na very affordable…

        • Fuck You says:

          Yan ang mga sinasabi o prinsipyu kapag hindi nakaka-afford… Kung yan ang nakakapasaya sa gumagamit, edi hayaan nalang sila…

      • i wonder if the battery would last a day with moderate to heavy usage especially at those specs? meron kaya available higher battery configuration for this device like 3000mAh or 3500mAh na readily available sa market?

      • thumsclick says:

        durability is not really important kc after a year may mga bagong phones naman ang lumalabas,so bibili ka naman ulit.Anohin mo man ang matibay kung sa katagalan wala na rin sa uso….

        • kung Sa bagay may point ka …

        • well… durability really plays an important role on tech products, especially sa phone because it has a high probability to fall (no matter how careful you are) where a shock-proof case is not enough. Also, having said that an average phone user changes their phone once a year, I agree, so if the phone is durable enough, you can still sell it on a promising amount.

    • dissident23 says:

      sir may features ba for usb-otg?

  1. Looks promising.. Kamusta kaya battery life nito? Can 2000mah handle the full HD screen?

  2. zoidian says:

    Full HD pero “1280 x 720″ ang resolution?? di ba dapat 1280 x 1080? typo error sir..

  3. Art Cruz says:

    Nakakatakot, medyo nadala nako jan kc ung charger ng thunder namin bigla nalang nasira ung cable, then ayaw na magcharge, hanggang sa ginamit ko na lang ung cable ng nokia ko.

    Sa pagkaalam ko, galing ng India tong mga units ng cherry, rebranded lang dito sa pinas.

  4. tokis garcia says:

    kakatakot magbitaw ng 11,999…ice berg nlng ako cgurado pa..malamang..dae nnman suki nyan cherry mobile service center…dae defect..

  5. cosmo z looks like a rebrand of Spice Mi-525 Pinnacle FHD http://www.gsmarena.com/spice_mi_525__pinnacle_fhd-5594.php

  6. Griswold says:

    ok ito lalo na for multimedia viewing… alangan lang talaga ako sa battery baka isang movie lang kelangan mo na agad magcharge.

  7. hakuokii says:

    wow… may bago na nman pagiipunan after ohd2….
    pero iintayin ko muna na madami dami ang bumili then basa basa ng review…. CM! galing nyo..

    • sayang lang iipunin mo..

      • pangit ba talaga ang feedback ng cherry ??? sa accesories at bat life nya parang sablay ee .. based sa mga narinig ko ?

        • Based sa experience ok nmn sa cable charger lang d tlga mganda ohd 2.0 user ako

          • Ako din OHD 2.0 user. So far maganda ang experience ko with regards to graphics and over-all performance(I suggest to use other type of headset though). Yung battery lang talaga mabilis maubos kasi hard-core player ako. Tip lang, don’t drain Android phones kasi it takes about 5-10mins bago siya mag-regenerate at ma-open ule. :)

  8. 3k din ang diffrence nea sa OHD 2.0 , halos same lng naman hehe .. sa OHD 2.0 parin .. goodlooking device pa .. pero dis is superb .. wait ko mna review neto at nung cosmos s .. before judging .. :D .. nc 1 CM

  9. Kamusta ba experience niyo with the quality and service of CM phones? sobrang ganda kasi ng specs nito compared sa ibang local brands kaya lang parang alangan ako sa brand quality.. Balak ko sana bumili ng iceberg pero napapaisip parin ako dito sa ganda ng specs..haha What do you guys think?

  10. hanep, mahal nga lang. maybe if it is below 10k, it will break the legacy of samsung in the philippines.

  11. May gyroscope na ba yubg cosmo series?

  12. Kudos to cherry mobile for the Bright ang galactic launch. Unlike the Starmobile Knight with 3 month hype, kulang sa impact. Until now no stocks pa rin sa local outlet.

    I’ve been a stramobile knight zombie for the past 3 months, wasting sleepless nights.

    • Ako rin, gustong gusto ko ang SKnight kaso nga lang walang Starmobile store dito sa Cagayan de Oro City, kaya naman CM Cosmos Z nalang…. T.T Huhuhuh

  13. Reventon says:

    mga patawa talaga ung nagsasabi na “sarap panuoran ng movie to, 1080p ung screen reso eh”.. Hahaha, pano mo maaappreciate sa 5-inch screen ung movies??? Portability ba ang dahilan? Haay– IMO. :D

    anyway, Good job CM. Its true na successor ang Cosmos series ng 2.0 (two-point-zero) series nyo.

  14. Ganda ng specs nito ah.. kaso, kaya kaya ng processor and 1gb ram yng full HD display? Di kaya sha magllag? haha gusto ko na makita antutu benchmark nito!

  15. S4iphone says:

    Mga putang ina nyo mga pulubi kyo.. nag feeling cherry mobile na matatalo iphone pati s4 gugong! pang mahirap na phone to na CM!!! wala kayo pambili ng s4 o kaya iphone 5! cherry mobile bulok! tang ina ka.

    • putangina mo says:

      puta ka ng ina mo! anung pinagsasabi mo buwaka ng ina ka! sino ba ngsabing tatalunin ang iphone 4 o 5? kung wala ka sasabihing maganda wag ka mgbasa about cherry! putangina mo!

    • pulobi666 says:

      tama ka pre,kulang, kulang talaga pera kaya mag cm nlang kami,,,inngit ka lang,,,hi-blood ka…

      • why waste your time commenting and viewing this review if you’re against it. I choose CM because that’s my decision. got a prob with that? Maganda galaxy series (well not all of them) and iphone… xmpre.. high end. But if your phone got stolen like me.. I would rather settle for an AFFORDABLE phone, masira man o manakaw,,, LESS PAIN…peace ^___^

  16. kennett says:

    gulat ako sa specs nito. bibili ako pag uwi ko ng pinas mag c.m. nalang ako mura pa

    • iphonegalaxys4 says:

      edi magulat ka gago! bulok to phone na to pang mahirap to.. yung mga bibili ng Cherry mobile mga walang pang bili ng iphone5 o kaya samsung s4! tang ina nyan 1GB ram nagulat ka na???? bobo hnd kakayanin ng 1GB ram lng yan ganyang specs sira agad yan! kaya pang mahirap yan na phone na yan!

      • may pambili ka nga ng iphone or s4 wala ka namang manners. hindi porke naka iphone o s4 ka mayaman ka na. pwedeng social climber ka muna. kahit wla ka na makain makita lng na maganda cp mo ok lng. mahoholdap klng dn nman edi dun kna sa mura tanga!

      • PakUHaters says:

        oo mahirap na kung s mahirap… my manners nman… d tulad ng nka-iphone4/4s/5 or samsungS4 nkabili lang ng mmhaling phone… wala ng manners or pinag-aralan…

        • Sir!
          Hindi porket nag Cherry Mobile ka eh… mahirap na… You are just a practical type with a sense of contemplating person…Meaning you are a intelligent!, you think instead of being an impulsive buyer, and that’s a good thing!
          This HATER just doesn’t have manners and a none educated person as well.
          So Kudos to you sir and Cherry Mobile users.

      • Wicked witch says:

        Ganyan kse tlga yung mga taong feeling mayaman e. Feelingero n nga, wla pang manners. Bka yung cellphone nga nyan galing pang magnanakaw e. Tse!

      • kaya lang nmn mahal sa tingin ng mga tao ang iphone at s4 kc dito ka sa pinas bbli. pero kung sa us ka bbli parang barya lang un. kya wag mong ipagmayabang ang iphone or s4 na yan. and atleast our country is competing for innovation. di katulad mong isang ignorante na kala mo napakatalino at napakayaman na mkahawak lang ng iphone kala mo bilyonaryo na kaagad

        You know what?! mocking CM (Cherry Mobile) users doesn’t make you intelligent or even enhanced your well being as a person, do you know that? yeah, you may have the capability to afford High-End smartphones such as S4, i5. but your attitude SUCKS as ever like stink to a high heaven trash! YOUR ATTITUDE DOESN’T REFLECT TO YOUR HIGH-ENDS PHONES. You should have a descent attitude, but instead you are such an ASSHOLE!.
        Are you not a Filipino to be proud that our country is trying its best to be competitive in a different aspect? Well, if you have no good things to say, might as well shut your lousy mouth you AIRHEAD! U have Intoxicated urself so much dude! quit on baked I’m telling you! it’ll do you no good!
        So much for a none EDUCATED PERSON.
        Get lost ASSHOLE!
        KUDOS to Cherry Mobile.

      • Totoo naman sinabi niya, para lang sa mga mahihirap tong Cherry Mobile, mga hampas-lupa na gustong makipagpayabangan sa ibang mga pinoy na naka touchscreen. Oh well, it earned a lot of negative comments because the truth struck them. Hurtful? You guys deserve it. Just saying.

    • ulol na nagyayabang ng iphone at s4… if i know pnagttyagaan mo yang plan mo na s4… wala kna cguro pambayad sa upa nyo sa plan lahat npupunta ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

      • I' am a Filipino says:

        Let him be sir…hahahahahaha! Social climber lang yang taong yan! masabi lang ng meron, kahit na mamuti ang mata sa GUTOM basta naka iphone 4s/5 o Galaxy S4.

        That person is like an Empty vessels making the most noise but only have a little knowledge and usually talk the most and make the greatest fuss.

  17. May BSI kaya talaga? Ung China brand kasi nito na koobee max x7, walang BSI e.

    • minsan naman kasi di exact copy ng OEM ang kinukuha ng cherry. may konting modifications to suit the local market’s needs. basta yan yung specs according to cherry mobile.

  18. Ano b meron sa iphone .. n wla sa cm… ang alam ko lng ang iphone para lng nokia mkasarili at wlang kbuhay buhay.. jail break iphone vs. Rooted andriod seconds plng ng 1st round knock out na jailbreak..wakokokoko… newbie

  32. Since Nokia had launch and Siemens mobile I could say I have all the model you name it, until Motorola Razz-R to Sony-Ericsson Xperia and iPhone. Who says iPhone is more highend than other locally made mobile phone? Got Galaxy S4 from my boss and bought iPhone 4S and they are both expensive and I am not buying for features but for the name and LOGO. Tell you no more original iPhone from California USA now and the iPhone you bought are already made in china or let’s say assembled in China. I choose to use my Cherry Mobile Titan and not Titan TV. I can say that I refuse to use iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy S4 because, they have the features I got from my CXherry Mobile Titan and you can download APPS anything you want from APPS store or Google store without hassle, unlike Samsung and iPhone is very picky to apps you want to download. Besides, I hate Samsung. It is hard to connect to WiFi. I have two highend Samsung Phone but I cannot use it at home because I cannot connect to my 10mbps PLDT WiFi. It is useless to have a highspeed internet connection and paying 4,800 pesos for Smart data plan every month because I said samsung cannot connected to my WiFi at home. In terms of Speed, I tell you My Cherry Mobile Titan is upgraded to Android ver. 4.2.6 Jelly bean and 32GB external and its 1GB RAM has enough space. I dropped it many times and was dropped to sink for 5 minutes but still working and no problem. I bought iPhone 4S for 34,000 pesos and Galaxy S4 for 28,000 pesos that time and Cherry Mobile Titan is only 6,999 pesos at Ultimart San Pablo City. Now tell me who is a wise buyer? Now, I have the latest Cherry Mobile Cosmos-Z and it is awesome 1.5Ghz cortex A7 quad core processor, 8GB ROM and 4GB RAM and 18MP rear camera at 7.6mm thickness, 5.0 inches 5pt. corning Glass Gorilla LCD. The price is 11,999.00 pesos that you cannot get it from Iphone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4.

  33. S4iphone b yun tsaka iphonegalaxys4? Prang iisa tao lng yan eh bkt nmn pang mhrap eh kung gus2 ko to wla ka pkialm mganda nmn specs bka nga nka cm ka din eh pkainin kta ng s4 dyan

    • nga e haha bka china phone pa ung iphone nya… ung lumulubog ang screen pag pnipindot lollsss

    • I' am a Filipino says:

      It’s only a one person sir Rei, walang manners magsalita eh… puro mura ang alam sabihin at kayabangan… I like Mr. Gut Aussehend’s comment.
      He is indeed wiser and not just a show off person..
      Buying expensive and high-end phones is not really important, why buy a high-end when you can already have all those features in your local phone, diba?
      MASYADONG MAYABANG YANG SI IPHONEGALAXYS4 NA YAN EH!
      His HIGH-END SMARTPHONES DOES NOT REFLECT IN HIS ATTITUDE. PANGAP NA MAY PERA LANG YAN… ANG TOTOO SOCIAL CLIMBER LANG YAN.
      HAHAHAHAHAHAH!

      I’ll buy Cherry mobile Cosmos X2 on December. Hope the price come down a little?
      JAW DROPPER TALAGA ANG CHERRY MOBILE COSMOS X2! WHOOOOH!

  34. kirito kun says:

    binenta na ba ito sa mga branch ng cherry mobile. tagal tagal ko ksi to hinihintay eh.

  35. CONCERN BUYER says:

    TINGNAN nyo un internal nia may mapapansin kayo.. 8gb sa specs. pag chineck nio 2gb lang… tanong nio sa seller sasabihin ganun daw tlga un? eh pano nging 8gb internal non? at pano nging quad core?.. tapos patay malisya na un seller… hmm ^_^

    • May mga pre-installed applications na kasi na nakalagay like yung OS itself, it eats about 1/4 – 1/3 of the device’s memory depende pa sa version. I guess the User’s internal memory for usage should be named differently para hindi malito yung bibili. Wala atang product knowledge yung seller na pinagtanungan mo. Poor store, they’re paying a stupid employee.
