Local brands Cherry Mobile and MyPhone have already released their aggressively priced Android smartphones – the Omega Spectrum and the Agua Rio. Both are priced at Php4,999 with almost the same specs. Let’s compare both phones and find out which one is better on paper.
Based on the specs listed above, there’s not much difference when it comes to hardware aside from having different chipsets and external designs. The Rio has the advantage of having a slightly higher CPU clock speed and more color options. The Spectrum, on the other hand, packs Dragontrail glass and support for Miracast. It’s a close fight.
At this point, it’s too early to conclude which phone is the best as we’re yet to get our hands on these devices and see how they perform in the real world.
Some of our readers who have bought the Rio pointed out experiencing lags due to some software issues. The Spectrum was just released today but if you have already bought it, feel free to share your experiences below.
