Cherry Mobile Superion vs Samsung Galaxy Tab

Cherry Mobile recently introduced the Superion which is their own tablet/phone running on Android. The Superion rivals Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Tab making it the first of its kind here in our country. Both devices are almost similar on the inside and the feature set would be also considering both runs on Android OS.

Here is a specs comparison of the two tablet phones.

Ok clearly, the Samsung Galaxy Tab has an edge on processor speed which is a big deal for devices that is capable of doing plenty of fun stuff. It also lasts a bit longer than the Superion thanks to its 4000 mAh battery.

What the Superion has going is its unbelievable price of Php19,990. You would sacrifice the slight dip in processing power and internal storage but microSD cards are getting cheaper these days.

I was able to “briefly” use both devices and as far as UI and performance are concerned, the Galaxy Tab and Superion are very similar. Samsung has the slight edge though with its Samsung Apps and refined TouchWiz UI but it doesn’t really matter if all you need are apps from the Android Market.

So did the Superion just gave the Galaxy Tab a run for its money? Looks like it but still, it’s unclear at this point who has the edge on functionality and user experience until we get to check out both devices thoroughly. But you really can’t ignore Cherry Mobile’s attractive price point.

  1. “You would sacrifice the slight dip in processing power…” yeah right 40% is a very small dip(SARCASM).. plus the graphics accelerator on the galaxy makes cherrys attempt on a tablet right for garbage..

    • You would be surprised that in real life usage, you won’t feel it as 40%.

      • I honestly don’t think the price point is that enticing especially if you can find a family member going to the US, with an extra 5k you have yourself an Ipad, I wouldn’t trust the hardware of cherry

          the hardware of cherry is from ViewSonic ViewPad 7. Cherry got lucky to have an exclusive here in RP. In india, Olivepad got the exlcusive as well as Camangi of Taiwan/Jap/USA.

          Cherry is pretty competitive with their price and backedup with ViewSonic hardware, i think this one is not so bad at all.

          I wonder if Cherry will also acquire ViewSonic ViewPad 10 – which has a dual boot functionality. haha..

  2. im CONFUSED!!! dati it kindle and ipad
    ipad and samsung galaxy tab
    now cherry!!! it tempting

    • kindle shouldn’t be compared to the ipad. hehehe unless you’re gonna use the ipad mainly as a reader only.

      this superion from cherry is nothing compared to the ipad. it’s a different tablet because you can use it to make calls and send messages. the ipad wifi + 3G can only do data and not calls.

    Diba 1gig ang processor ng Cherry Mobile Superion??????

    i bought a cherry surprisingly even it just has a 600mhz processor compared to a galazy tab their speed comparison is unnoticeable. superior is more handy to the pocket. although galaxy can last 2 hours more but superion is way cheaper. so for the budget conscious its the most practical choice. i didnt regret buying it and still enjoyed it on my 9th day of using it.

  5. pwede bang gamitin ang broadband plug in sa Cherry?
