Cherry Mobile just launched their most brightest and stylish Smartphone that totally outshined its greatest rivalry at our local market. It was named as the Cherry Mobile Omega HD, a 5-inch IPS Dragon Trail Glass display with Dual-Core Processor and 12 megapixels camera and with a suggested retail price of Php7,999 only.

Since the day that Cherry Mobile posted the Initial specs and photo teaser of their upcoming phone which is the Omega HD, I was really excited to see it personally and explore it. Recently, I grab a chance to make a hands-on review with the Omega HD and here are my experiences to share through out the exploration.
Omega HD flaunts a perfect slim body that made it feel more comfortable to grip by just one hands. The thin bezels on both side attracted me because it makes the screen larger and taller compared to other 5-incher phones. At the front, the 3 navigation keys, sensor and front camera were placed while at the back part, the back cover was made of smooth and flawless plastics were the Camera, LED Flash and branding were polished. Almost everything about its design was perfect and it looks so elegant among its line up.
As of now, Omega HD is the brightest android phone I known locally next to Starmobile Diamond. It shows off 5-inch HD display, I must say that this phone is HD literally! Thanks to its 1280×720 pixels screen resolution. It also has good viewing angles and made the screen even better because of its 294ppi (pixels-per-inch).

Another reason why OHD visuals display was the major edge? Well, its screen surface was coated by Dragontrail glass that made the screen more durable and scratch-resistant. Accurate and sharp graphics are totally packed at the screen of OHD.
If you are a hardcore gamer, OHD is not recommended on your personality even though some of the HD games run smoothly on this device. It is powered by 1GHz dual-core MediaTek MT6577 processor with PowerVR SGX531 GPU. I tried to run some games such as Temple Run 2 and Dead Trigger and it run smoothly without hiccups and lags. It is fueled by 1GB RAM for better multi-tasking functionality On its Antutu Benchmark Test, I am not really surprised with its result – 5.7k. I also noticed that its default homescreen is a bit lag that’s why it’s better to download launcher at playstore.
OHD is an excellent capturing tool because it offers 12 megapixels rear camera and 2 megapixles front facing camera with Back-Illuminated Sensor. When I try to capture some picture outdoor, I was amazed of how clear and bright picture it can render. The BSI Technology also help its two shooter to give a good shots on both camera, even if the place you were trying to capture picture has a low light, it can still develop a brighter images.

Most of Android phones usual problem was the battery life of their handsets. I must also say that OHD battery life is graded as average because it is only packed by Li-Ion 2,100MAh battery. At the normal usage such as call, text and a bit of gaming and browsing, you can juice your phone for a whole day but if you used it in continuous gaming, surfing and playing movies and music your battery can easily boost down for just 5 to 6 hours. It will take 4 hours for the phone to complete its charging.
Overall, OHD is a casual Smartphone not a GAMING handset. Display over performance, that’s how OHD is. Everything is perfect about OHD yet it is bundled by some shortcomings such as its battery and its gaming performance. For the price of Php7,999, to get one of this Smartphone is really worth it.
