Cherry Mobile Omega Spectrum VS MyPhone Agua Rio

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.

spectrum vs rio

omega spectrum vs agua rio

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.

    Stress test dapat yan sa mga gpu intensive benchmarks at malamang gagapang ang Cherry Mobile

    Did some research , Yung Broadcom SoC (854 ×480 pixel resolution) umaabot lang ng 13.5k sa AnTuTu….So kung 720p yan malamang 10k below na, not so good

    Mukhang panalo Rio dito although kelangan mo pa ring i-tweak para magkaroon ng SD install

      BoBO ka ba? mas maganda parin ung gpu ng cm ome spec, kesa sa mp rio, compare mo kya ung Videocore IV sa Mali400MP2 , tanga tanga kaba? o wla ka lng isip? bobo mo laggers nga ung MP rio e haha.. tang ina mo

  2. buzal says:

    Rio padin panalo dito sa performance and camera, glonass, dragontrail and miracast ang ok sa spectrum

    mga sir ano ba yung screen ng rio?

    • PekPek says:

      super think glass kya madali po mabasag, laggers pa po ang rio. prang tanga ka lng nyan pag bumili ka ng rio.

  7. Damibobodito says:

    Mga boplaks kung yung BULLETPROOF GLASS NGA nababasag yan pa kayang dragontrail glass at gorilla glass…

  8. Jeffrey says:

    I had y hands on the 2:
    I like the style and colors of rio however, it is bulky-mataba sya. plastic na plastic ang case and i think mga 1-2 months use, marami nang gasgas. Kung magbebenta siguro sila ng case to replace the old one or to choose another color, then this is the best phone in the market. although hindi masyadong fluid and snappy ang response ng screen…but the camera is superb, malinaw talaga…and mabilis ang internet.

    Omega Spectrum has the style of samsung galaxy S3 including its thickness but with matte plastic rear cover and chrome accents. So, hindi sya bulky at dumihin and hindi halata pag nagkaroon ng scratch. hindi rin masyadong fluid ang response nya especially sa task manager and browser, pero ang home and application screen very snappy. And what I like here is the miracast support and malinaw din ang camera. Hindi ko nakita yung Rio kung may panoramic mode but spectrum does have this feature.

    Verdict:
    Sa software performance…I vote for CM Spectrum
    Sa style…MP Agua Rio
    Sa external condition ng phone in the long run…CM Spectrum

    What I bought? CM Spectrum, kasi ayoko ng gasgasin and dumihin like Agua rio. For those who love colors and can sacrifice the bulk and cover scratches, then MP Rio the the phone for you

    Just bought the omega spectrum. .so far so good. Interface is better y
    Than Rio mp.responsive naman ang touchscreen. .super nice bright screen. .and you can feel sa touch yung Dragon trail quality ng smartphone. It’s got the feel of the s4. design is great. .slim edges. .matte smooth back case. Very elegant looking. Icons are not big too.

    • lyn says:

      How about the camera? Malinaw ba cia? Hnd nmn masyado nag lalag? How about the battery? Hnd madali ma lowbat? Mabilis nmn ung internet connection nia? Sorry if I ask so many question, hnd q kc alam if ano ang mas maganda rio ba or the omega spectrum. Salamat po ^_^

    MyPhone already has an OTA update to install Apps sa SD card.
    at least naging ok sila sa pakinig ng mga feedback from consumers and bloggers like yugatech.

  12. GREENEYBOY says:

    wla kyo sa phone ko…nokia3310

    • Cloud 9 says:

      Agree. Hehehe. Nokia is the best phone pagdating sa quality. Khit ibato mo, maipit, mahulog sa plangganang may tubig, still working pa din at tatagal pa ng madaming taon.. heheheheheh

    • max says:

      asan na ba nokia mo..? ala na ksi ibininta na sa microsoft.. ksi nman eh di cla gumawa nang ANDRIOD PHONE kya nastugi.. hahahah..

  13. minix says:

    MT6582M support only qHD 960 X 540 screen display not 1280 x 720 ..yan ciguro ang cause nang screen lag .

    While Broadcom BCM 23550 1.2GHZ is little bit slower than MT6582 , its support up to 1080P display.
    CM Spectrum with Dragon trail trail glass ,GPS+GLONASS with Miracast ready .

    mas stable ang CM Broadcom BCM23550 with a support up to 1080P screen display

  14. LoveCook says:

    panget myphone karamihan sa mga phones nila naghahang. tska medyo mahina ung touch screen. So I go for CM Omega Spectrum :)

  15. minix says:

    my hardware problem ang My phone Rio hinde compatible ang MT6582M sa screen display na 1280 x 720.

    MY phone rio must change the processor with newer version MT6582 with 720 display support.

  16. minix says:

    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.

    It is not a software issue but a hardware issue
    MT6582M support only 960 x 540 screen display not 1280 x 720

    • Jeffrey says:

      I bought CM Spectrum last april 18
      Take a look at my review above dated april 20
      Internet is good and so far hindi naman naghahang mabilis sya

  17. jolas says:

    Yung mga bumili ng Spectrum magkita kita nalang kau sa Service center ng CM after a couple of days mag GTG na din kau. Then mag damayan kau sa sama ng loob na mararanasan nyo dun. Good luck.

    • Jeffrey says:

      I don’t think so…I bought mine since it was made available last april 18 and I love it. no hassles at all. very snappy sya and it’s worth more than I paid for…

  18. chacha says:

    We bought the Myphone RIO nun February pa and updated over the air,its the first version. Moved apps sa SD card and optimize via “Clean Master app button” before exiting.
    So far wala nman lag, probs, etc. okay at smoother naman yung Rio. di nman namin tinambakan ng Apps. maayos naman kahit floppy bird up to 3d games mataas din antutu.

  19. ced says:

    SPECTRUM is the best :D

  20. rho john says:

    Bakit may lag ung spectrum?

  21. minix says:

    Rio lite no lag issue qHd display but 512mb ram only, ocean pro same spec , but larger screen 5.5 inch, 1 GB ram, but to expensive 7k

  22. Xemore says:

    guys. ano mas ok pang gaming mode .

    just comment the truth pls. i’m thinking too much which i will buy.

    CMOS or MP RIO ?

    respect post :)

  23. qwerty says:

    punta kayo sa mga service centers ng myphone and cherry.
    tingnan nyo kung sino mas madami tao at kung ano complaint nila. doon pa lang magisip na kayo kung aling brand mas maganda.

  24. As your wardrobe changes with the seasons, so will the items of jewelry that you
    choose. Going back to China, sunglasses were in use here around 12thcentury.
    As these tiles are available in such a variety of colors, you can use them as per the dcor
    of your room.

  25. nice says:
