    Pass, if this phone will REALLY have the MT6577 1GHZ dual-core (I wished it had the MT6589 quad-core, 1.2GHZ, mas magandang performance) :(

    But I’m sure someone will love to have this phone, I mean, 8000 lang, o; Ang Sony Xperia S nga, sa 2nd hand market, mga 10-15,000 pa! :)

      Ang tanga naman nito anong kinalaman ng xperia S dito.

    • garz says:

      Talagang may specific na MediaTek chip?

    • Mr. Mari says:

      @StupidKiller. How ironic. Sabi sa pangalan mo sir, “stupidkiller” ka eh bakit parang sa mga reaksyon mo ay ikaw ang medyo ‘stupid’( no offense pare.) Siguro kung gagamitin nyo sir ang utak niyo, maiintindihan nyo na ginamit niya ang price ng secondhand na Xperia S(10-15k) para ikumpara sa price nitpng Omega HD. Alam kong meron tayong kakayahang magpahayag ng opinyon natin, at isa namang ‘free country’ ang Pilipinas, pero kung wala kayong magandang masasabi, eh manahimik na lang kayo. Good day

    To those with questions regarding the durability of the Omega HD check this out, mukhang matibay naman kasi haha

    Kudos to CM! Support Local brands na lng para mas quality at highend specs ang madala dito, suportahan nyo na lng, hawag puro reklamo, kayo kaya magimport nyan?

    Look at the Big Picture!!! Dati reklamo kayo dahil 512MB lng memory at mababa processor, ngayon nandyan na 1GB RAM at Quad core na speeds, affordable pa. Be thankful na lng at supportahan kapwa nyo Pinoy para umunlad tayo.

    • anonymous says:

      As i’ve always said before, an Android phone w/out active development (custom roms,kernels,etc..) is just meh…. Kung ok ka na sa stock Android phone, nag-Android phone ka pa! mag iPhone ka na lang diba!?

    • garz says:

      Not all Android users are into deep customization, Mr. Anonymous. Ikaw na amg marunong!

    • PhSMASH says:

      @anonymous kung spec lang ng Omega HD ang pag uusapan you dont have to customize your android, para saken kase ang customization eh para sa mga phones di kagandahan ang specs at nag hahanap ng paraan para maiprove pa :)
      IMHO lng po

  5. Tigrrr says:

    Dual band only? Pffft.

  6. pobear says:

    been browsing youtube for i-mobile IQ6 since their exactly desame.. the IQ6 scored antutu 5900+ while quadrant is at 2600. it seems that the 720p resolution is a bit hard for the mtk6577 SOC.

  7. Yukichan says:

    ..hmmm..
    ..well technically looking at the specs. & fts.. in the paper it’s going
    to “WOW” people.. question is how does it perform?
    ..durability wise..speed and response..
    ..I think I’ll be staying with Sony for that..
    ..but good job..on the developments..with the local brands..

  8. Mog says:

    I wonder if it’s still using an SGX 531. That’s too underpowered to drive that resolution for games.

  9. nsmorado says:

    nice to know that local brands are doing good in the mobile phone business. it’s about time that we help promote and buy our own brand. for that price, affordable na siya sa masa… good job CM

  10. mr. von says:

    pwede po ba makapag skype using this CM Omega?

  11. Aaron says:

    The only downside of this very great phone is the CPU and the GPU. Ang Graphics ata nito eh PowerVR SGX531 which is parang mababa. Tsaka 1.0 Ghz lang ang Clockspeed nito. Sana maglabas sila nito ng Quadcore Variant with better GPU. Kahit abutin pa ng 13k. :D

  12. Aris says:

    Ask q lng if namomove s sd card ung mga apps nito? mxdo mliit pg 4gig lng kc tpos d n momove! if oo ill sure buy this.. thanks

  13. Ian Bern says:

    All Android phone can be rooted namn.if ayaw mo, apps2sd gamitin mo.at least 70 percent matransfer mo sa sd card.di kaya maexclusive n nman sa lazada to mga sir.imho, with the given specs, against the price, di na talo.after all a fon is for communication and it offers both.

  14. lovelygrace says:

    i bought cherry mobile omega hd and it is very sulit.. thanks!

  15. rhedelicious says:

  16. Carl says:

    Puwede naman ang skype (video calling) sa Omega HD, you just have to enable it on skype’s settings. Already tried it and it works.

  17. angel says:
