    Unlike the ones they announced yesterday, this phone is actually amazing. Although I don’t actually encourage local brands, this is actually a bang for your buck. Good work CM!

  2. Danny says:

    Kawawa naman mga bumibili ng cherry mobile phones, wala pang 2 months may kapalit na phones nila.

    • abuzalzal says:

      Cherry Mobile is NOT a brand, hindi nila hawak ang quality control, dun sa Shenzen…Ignoramus ka masyado…

      Pare pareho lang ang piyesa niyan sa O+, MyPhone etc etc…

      ngayon kung sirain ang isang chip malamang apektado na rin ang ibang rebranded product, hindi mo ba naisip yun?

    • mapagbigay says:

      2 months? more than 6 months na CM ko, hanggang ngyn ok pa rin ang cellfone.

    • Jon says:

      Wow abuzalzal, grabe yung comprehension skills mo, mahirap ba intindihin yung sinabi ni Danny? kaka-release lng ng Omega HD after a while meron ng Omega HD 2.0…ikaw yung ignoramus

    • Name: says:

      ^^^^^^^ Ang layo ng sagot mo

    • josefsan says:

      dba di naman rebranded ang O+? bakit sya nasali? haha..

    • yeyeye says:

      tama c josefsan hahaha

    • zarne says:

      @ Abuzalzal

      Parang utak lamok kung gumana ang isipan mo, Abuzalzal. Ang layo ng reply mo kay Danny at may kasama pang insulto. Sino ngayon ang ‘ignaramus’? And no apology to the person you insulted? Tsk. tsk

      @Danny… ganyan talaga siguro ang nature mga Tech. Bagong producto ngayon at pagkaraan ng ilang buwan,parang luma at obsolete na kasi may bago na namang lumabas.

  3. abuzalzal says:

    This is Hands down THE BEST value phone at the moment…Dragontrail Glass, Superior Camera, BETTER design (without the pambukid na mapa sa likuran)

    Will be buying this one for sure…buti na lang hindi ako nag – apura sa A919i hehehehe

    • Jubel says:

      @abuzalzal: Maka bukid ka naman, LOL. Mas gugustuhin ko p magka bukid likod ng phone ko kesa pumila ng pagka haba haba sa SM North para magpa service Haha Peace. Mas gusto ko pa si A919i kesa sa ganyang phone na 2,100mAH. Sabog na nga battery ng Omega HD, what more pa ang QUADCORE na same mah. LOOL nalang ako.

    • hahaha says:

      Ang daming satsat! Eh cherry mobile lang pala kayang bilhin! Pwe pulubi! Hahaha

    • Cyrus says:

      Lol, tlga para sa mga nasa bukid ang Mapa? I believe its for Nationalism purposes you should learn to love your country.

      Still buti sana kng nka iPhone o Xperia V or Z ka kng maka lait nga naman.

      From a Sony LT25i user na probinsyanong taga bukid.

    • stick says:

      @jubel ngayon ko lang nalaman mas ok ang 2000 mAh ng a919i kesa sa 2100 mAh ng ohd 2. same cpu naman sila. hmmm???

    • Bleh says:

      Daming sinabi sa mga nagcomment e hanggang CM ka lang pala. Hashtag pulubi alert

    • fellyx says:

      Kung maka-bukid parang ang taas na…di ko sana papatulan eh, kaso pnoy ako. Alam nyo mag away away na kayong lahat dyan para sa mga low-end phone nyo at wala akong pake, wag lang dadamay ang bansa ko..peace

    • zarne says:

      @Abuzalzal

      Kaya pala dakdak ka ng dakdak sa presyo ng mga high end phone, eh hanggang cherry mobile ka lang pala. Parang kenkoy ang labas mo dito, your comments are not credible. Nagiging laughing stock ka dito, If I were you, I will review the comments you made to Danny and apologize or Shut the F**ck up.

    • haynaku says:

      mga muchacho! dameng naghihirap sa mundo status symbol nyo pa mga pinag iisip nyo. ano ba talaga ang silbi ng smartphone? communications, productivity not to be used as status symbol ..nowadays people are so stupid.. social climber bishes! hahaha

  4. abuzalzal says:

    …and this will put the STARMOBILE Diamond and the O+ with a price tag of Php 13k into oblivion….

    Kudos Cherry Mobile you have done it again….

    • Ruffy says:

      Para kang taga cherry ah, at least si o+ walang taong katulad mo na puro nalang cherry ang dinakdak

      O+ 8.15 pa rin!

    • john1206 says:

      good luck na lang sa pagpila mo sa service center nila kung makakatyempo ka ng defective unit.

    • jennie says:

      given the 9k price point of the OHD 2.0… it puts to shame everything in its bracket. the a919i reigned for a very short period but spec, build and price wise, the OHD 2.0 is king. not gonna even mention starmobile if you’re gonna spend that kind of cash, i would recommend O+. not china ODM’s with premium pricing, dafuq is starmobile thinking?

  5. ROA says:

    Swerte nung nakabili ng unit kahapon. This unit has (almost) everything that people are looking for in a local smartphone. I’m sure marami na naman haters nito.

  6. Jason Ryan Celeste says:

    move to sd card feature?

  7. Tigrrr says:

    What is the OEM unit of that model?

  8. dex says:

    Tanong ko po sa mga merong cherrymobile/smartphones na 4GB internal memory. MagkakaProblema ba talaga sa pagInstall ng games kng maliit lng internal memory ng phone (like 2GB available lng)? or hindi naman lahat ng games mgkakaProblema mgInstall sa SD card?

    • Rickazel says:

      Kung hindi poh ako nag kakamali.. wala naman problema sa instalation ng games specially in CM HD2.0.. my Int Storage in my CM HD2 is almost 700MB but still nakakapag install pa ako games pero wala naman ako problema.. i think kung malaki requirement ng games dun siguro pero kung kaya pa naman ng storage ng phone.. malamang hindi…

  9. Big Blue says:

    Walang HSDPA at HSUPA wag na lang useless phone kong walang features for hi speed internet connection.

    • you w useless brain says:

      Mag-research ka muna bago mo sabihin kagad useless yun phone. Alamin mo ano SOC nito at alamin mo capabilities nya.

    • ROA says:

      Research ka kasi muna bago magsalita. Even the CM Flare is capable of HSDPA connection, how much more this one. Besides, not everyone understands HSPA/HSDPA/HSUPA, but many know what 3G is, that’s why it’s what they put on the spec sheet. Besides, di naman din ganun karamdam yung HSDPA/HSUPA dito sa atin.

  10. abuzalzal says:

    My one major gripe about the OHD was the lack of USB OTG support….meron na ba dito sa OHD 2.0? sana supported

  11. sus says:

    fanboys will be fanboys.. magsitigil nga kayo parang mga bata na nagaaway sa candy.

  12. Bryan says:

    Rebranded i-mobile iq-6 from Thailand

  13. wewet says:

    nice nakuha nila ang IQ6

  14. crosscross says:

    @abuzalzal, hindi ko alam kung mali ka ng nireplyan, ang layo ng sagot mo :)

    • zarne says:

      The reply was to the right person Danny, but Abuzalzal’s reply was out of whack with added insults. Only people with mosquito size brain would make that kind of comment.

  15. paolo says:

    Great. The Battle of the “Flagships.”

    CM has this thing.
    Starmobile has their 18MPr+8MPf monster.
    MP will probably do price cuts to A919i.
    O+ has their 8.15 and the Eat Bulaga thing.

    Now just name me whose camera is the best camera (And probably aftersales support as well)

  16. Kike says:

    This is the new king of local smartphones.

  17. jemski says:

    basta ang omega hd umiinit pag nagcharge ang myphone a919i kahit isang araw nag charge di umiinit :) sana hndi ganun ang ohd 2.0 :)

  18. Andy says:

    WOW! Cherry Mobile? Company is making a smart move among other companies especially its main competitor MyPhone? which, their latest flagship phone, the A919i is a success hit. But nonetheless this phone is the answer to them.
    Personally, I rather choose CM OHD 2.0 over MPA919i Duo because mainly of its camera and the new version of Android (w/c is 4.2) . The MediaTek MT6589 chipset and PowerVR SGX544MP GPU is similar to that found on myphone A919i. Along with 1GB of RAM and so on… (they have pretty much the same specs overall except for the above mention).
    for the PROS and CONS here:

    Myphone a919i DUO?:
    PROS:
    -Battery efficient chipset
    -Optimum performance of both CPU and GPU
    -HD screen (720p)

    CONS:
    -only 8MP camera (compared to 12MP — OHD and Starmobile Diamond)
    -Android 4.1
    -Price (SRP. 9,590php)

    Cherry Mobile Omega HD? 2.0:
    PROS:
    -Camera (12MP BSI)
    -Android 4.2 (improved camera UI and bugfixes)
    -Battery efficient chipset
    -Optimum performance of both CPU and GPU
    -HD screen (720p)
    -Dragon Trail scratch screen protection
    -Price (8,999) <500php cheaper than MP A919i duo
    CONS:
    – TBA

  19. jaja says:

    they should have tried to at least increase the battery life of this quad-core phones ,2100 mAh is already alot of juice, but for sure Ohd2 will drain faster than Ohd1 :),, duhh still a thumbs up for CM! keep it up XD

  20. bonbon says:

    buti na lang di pa ko nakakabili ng omega hd kc out of stock dito.. hehehe… pinagiicpan ko din kung a919i o ohd eh.. eto na lang pag meron na dito..

  21. rk says:

    FYI, the only advantage of Starmobile and MyPhone compared to Cherry Mobile are:

    1) the Android firmware implementation – CM’s android implementation has app incompatibility issues, memory issues, battery issues, storage issues, slow multitasking issues, slow wifi issues, lost apps, etc… test and compare para mapanutunayan;

    2) Quality control – daming returned unit ng CM bcoz of factory defects… ba’t di nila check thoroughly the unit before shipping;

    3) After sales service – di maganda ang after sales ng CM period.

    • abuzalzal says:

      Kasalanan na ng buyer yun paghindi kinilatis binibili

      Tatlo lang naman ang titingnan mo kung bibili ka ng China rebrand eh…

      1. DEAD Pixels
      2. Battery Charging / Discharging efficiency
      3. Faulty spot/s sa touchscreen

      As for Aftersales support…I don’t know kung tinitingnan pa ng buyers ‘to nowadays…Pinoys love to gamble lalo na pag mura

    • blue says:

      pano ba malalaman if dead pixel pla ung unit n nabili u? i dnt have any idea for that pixels issue,
      tnx

  22. bonbon55 says:

    mas higit pa and specs neto kesa sa a919i pero bakit mas mahal and a919i.. preho na din naman sila ng processor eh….. siguro mapa ng pilipinas ang nagpapamahal sa a919i.. haha

    • juandelacruz says:

      albuzalzal ogag ka ba? mahalaga ang after sales service sa kahit kanino maliban sayo, unggoy!

    • zarne says:

      @Juandelacruz

      Ang mga tao lang na may ‘utak lamok’ ang magsasabing hindi mahalaga ang after sales service especially for mobile phone. eh kung masira eh di wala ka na. Also, easy update capability for the OS is important.

  23. Natsume Hibiki says:

    sa mga nakabili ng My phone A919i bigti na friend may pambomba nanaman ang cherry mobile tahahahahaha!!! Kaylan kaya ito magiging available sa cabanatuan at makabili agad…

  24. magic5 says:

    Wawa nmn alcatel, ndi pa nga naddisplay unit nla sa shelves andme na kgad lumabas na pang tapat sknla specialy 4 d scribe hd. Sna babaan pa nla ng konti price nla pra mbura na sa market yng mga siraan na unit ng mga rebranded phones na yan!

    Imbes kc na babaan nla ung price eh lalo png tinaasan, d2 sa mga reviews n blogs eh p13,490 ang srp, pro nung nag ask ako sa kiosk nla sa southmall eh p14,990 daw tpos wla png demo unit, ayaw pa ptignan n pa open kung ndi ka bbili on d spot.. tsk2..

  25. 'em says:

    Dapat scribe hd bibilhin ko pero today din lumabas itong Omega HD 2.0… Ito na lang binili ko.. Available na siya sa SM North.. Hehe

  26. Nayr says:

    Bumili nalang ang may pambili wag na mang away at manlait. Mabuti nga at may mga local brand para maka experience naman ng mga latest gadgets yung mga di maka bili o nanghihinayang bumili ng mga overpriced gadgets.

  27. burn says:

    Actually ang binabyran lng nmn ay ung brand kaya mahal ung iba cguro inisip ng cm na ang hanap ng tao ay mura at medio kapareho ng feature ng mamahalin at sikat n brand baka nga mas madami sila mabenta qng same specs na mura pa kahit iphone p yn kasi di nmn lahat kaya bumili nun may maymn dn nmn na prefer ung mga mura… for me kung mkakabili ka ng may better specs at mura go na kesa nmn mahal like samsung glaxy y to cm flare 5 to6 k ata un ng nagtanong aq pero ung flare mas mura pero better specs un nga lang pasosyalan ng brand talaga tayong mga pilipino. Pumangit lang imahe ng cherry mobile dahil kay willie revillame. Buti nlng walang free n will jacket sa cm haha

    • Jogs says:

      May factor din naman ang brand besides pangalan at porma.

      Syempre mas matibay talaga relatively pag branded. Bibihira kang makakita ng Samsung Galaxy S3/S4 na mabilis masira or may factory defect. MAHAL nga lang. hehe.

      As for CM Omega HD 2.0, maganda ganda rin xa ang I think medyo okay ang external build quality, pero may mga naka experience ng di maxadong maganda kaya tsamba tsamba lang tlga.

      Sa mga balak bumili, I have two things to share:

      1. If kaya mo pa taasan konti ang budget mo, go for slightly used branded phones instead para may peace of mind ka. Marami nagbebenta sa Sulit.com.ph

      2. If swak lang budget mo, test before buying ka sa CM store. Wag mo tantanan ang phone at kalikuting mabuti. Baka may factory defects yan.

      Balak ko sana bumili nito kaso sayang din ang 9K at may phone na ako. Kahit secondary phone lang sana for Wifi Hotspot/backup phone.

    • hanes says:

      its not the name its the hardware uses of each brand. although the same ung ginamit nilang hardware may pinagkaiba. ung gamit ng mga branded phone like nokia sony samsung htc lenovo and other branded phone ay ung mismong ORIGINAL na piesa o Hardware,.
      ung iba naman ang gamit nila ay ung class c or d siguro although the same hardware sila. kaya makikita mo ang pinagkaiba ng presyo nila.
      tulad ng sapatos, ung mismong origianl u can buy it 5k to 20k samantalang ung class c or d 1k lang siguro.
      nagbigay lang ako ng example para madiffirentiate natin.

  28. Christopher says:

    wala naman yan sa brand, pangporma lang ang brand, If a gadget can do what you wanted it to do and how you want it to perform, eh bakit bibili pa ng mahal, I was a user of Iphone for a long time and I was so stupid that i felt like I was scammed, overpriced and it’s not worth it… what happens after a month or two? wala nganga, sayang yung hard earned money, I work kasi eh. At the end of the day you’ll realize na you have to be smart when choosing your gadgets, syempre reasonable price and functionality — eto ang number 1 criteria ko.. hehe

  29. bil_san says:

    Ano kaya ang oem nito? imobile iq xa? wala akong makita kaparehas ng specs nito help naman.

  31. mother of two says:

    I’ve been a Samsung user for a long time now and I decided to buy Ohd 2.0. Because Samsung battery drains fast. Disregarding the mobile brand, I love my cherry mobile omega HD 2.0. With my previous Samsung which costs 16k, it would last up to 6hours only. When I used my cherry mobile 6hours of wifi , calls and text, games,picture taking and video recordings it is down to 55%. I’m more than satisfied. And to have these amazing specs for 9k. Its so affordable. Thank you cherry mobile because I got more than what I paid for.

  32. jud says:

    is CM OHD 2 available at Lazada?

    • Nibelung says:

      Di nila ila-lazada to. Hirap na yung mga CM stores sa pag-restock ng OHD2.0 so di nila need ng online shop. Pinagkakaguluhan talaga itong phone na ito. :)

  33. kerbs says:

    meron bang sample test tong omega hd2 sa mga cm stores like the other smartphone brands? so that we can have a brighter choice.

    • Nibelung says:

      well before you buy, you should test the unit first. If you think that the phone they gave you is enough for you then go buy it, if not then ask them for a new unit.
      If you buy the unit without checking it first then you go home with a dead pixel, you have to go to their technical support literally and let them change the unit to a new one. Pero check mo din.

      Bago ka pumunta sa technical support nila wag na wag kang magro-root or else invalid na ang warranty mo.

  34. Denz says:

    Gaano ba talaga katagal ang battery life nito? Help naman oh? Yung totoo ah?

  39. Bob Reyes says:

    How do you take a screenshot on this phone (CM OHD 2.0)?

  40. jay says:

    Just got one today.I’ve been testing it and so far it’s really impressive. Sinubukas ko wifi sa SM and ang ganda ng screen and picture quality. It’s surprisingly lightweight. I dunno if it’s a bad thing pero okay na okay. Resolution, picture quality. Di ko pa natratry downloadan ng mga apps. Kakailanganin ang extended memory dahil.

  41. john says:

    sir tanong lng po.. openline po ba ang cm ohd 2 sa ibang bansa?

  46. Click Here says:

    hello there and thank you for your information – I’ve certainly picked up anything new from right here.

    I did however expertise several technical points using this website,
    as I experienced to reload the website lots
    of times previous to I could get it to load correctly.
    I had been wondering if your hosting is OK? Not that I’m complaining,
    but sluggish loading instances times will often affect your placement in google and
    could damage youir high quality score if advertising and
    marketing with Adwords. Anyway I’m adding this RSS to my email and can look out for much more of your respective interesting content.
    Ensure that you update this again soon.

    This is almost identical to the other Omegas. Pero bat ang mahal? Sayang ang 4K.
