    Lol at “Curvaceous”. Makes me think of Austin Powers whispering “You sexy beast!” over my shoulder. Not a bad looking phone with nice specs for the price. I’d throw that “W” at the bottom out the window though. I’ve been considering getting a CM phone as a secondary, but I have concerns with their build quality.

  2. Cherry Mobile phones are known na madaling masira. I still dont think I will buy that. After all, 10k pa rin yan.

  3. Great! I like the specification, Cherry mobile is improving.

  4. “Curvaceous.” -> LOL That.

    But SRSLY, I won’t get this.

    No flash for the camera! :(

    Sayang yung Snapdragon processor nito! Mas mataas pa ang processor speed sa T-Mobile G2x (LG Optimus 2x) ko kahit single core! :(

    But I am sure it will have its place in some Filipinos’ pockets.

    • I AGREE regarding the FLASH :/. sayang talaga ung lahat ng superB specs. Pinagpipilian ko sana between xperia mini and this W900 pero nung nalaman kong wala palang FLASH ay dedma nah.

  5. Dual core po ang optimus 2X.

    i think its a great specs LaLo na sa 512mb ram and 1gb internaL memory and the free 8gb incLuding the processor .. the prob with this was the printed “curvaceous” and the “w” at the back .. the camera without fLash and the secondary cam which comes onLy at vga ..

  10. Mas maganda pa yata myphone at star mobile. May bagong labas kc ang star mobile at myphone na android phone worth 6k plus at may flash pa ung cam. Sa chery mobile kc delay ung picture taking kc mghihintay kapa ng 2sec bago mag appear ung image sa screen kaya ayaw ko ng ganun mabagal.lahat nman cguro ng tao diba gusto mabilis.
