    Wohahahaw…… lumelevel-up nanaman ang CM ha… :)

  3. Edgar says:

    bang for the buck na kaya to?

  4. lolwut says:

    No info on the processor’s brand? IMO flare is still the best phone CM had came up with, everything else is mediocre.

  5. kikokikokiks says:

    it seems this has better specs than flirt/crystal but a lot cheaper… right sir abel?

  6. R-a-M-u-J says:

    wwaaahhh…. Better specs compared to Galaxy Grand with half the price…. The F!

    • lol. asa ka pa. 1080p yung Galay Grand tapos may 21.1 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA support tapos 8GB internal tapos 4.1.2 na jelly bean. Mas mabilis din ang CPU w/1.2 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU. 5.65 x 3.03 x 0.38 inches so mas malaki at mabilis kay sa tae na to.

    • tribukol says:

      me magmumukhang gago nito… magisip muna bago mag type kase.

    • hyun ju! says:

      mon tanga lang siya hahahaha maganda daw specs wag kang mag comment kung wala kang alam ha nag mumukha kang tanga

    • evollove says:

      “1080p yung Galay Grand”

      Wait.. what? Since kailan?
      I can’t believe some people just can’t help arguing for argument’s sake, even if they end up being idiots and pull down the rest of us decent folk for associating or worse, sharing our nationality with them. TO share my experience, I’ve been flamed far too many times in international forums and websites just for saying I’m a Filipino, simply because they have a previous notion of how Filipinos are like online. Having access to the internet doesn’t give you the right to spread your idiocy and ignorance to the world.

      For future reference, here are the actual specs of the Galaxy Grand.

      The more you know…

    • evolvolvol says:

      @evo – sa link mismo na binigay mo nakalagay na 1080p ang galaxy grand so now sinong may tama? Its people like you who keeps on thinking low of other pinoys ang dahilan kung bakit pati ibang nationality mababa tingin saten. Isip isip din. Try mo gamitin. Since kelan pa naging 1080p ang grand? Matagal na duh..

    • Boybawang says:


      Galaxy Grand screen is just 480×800 which is orders of magnitude lower than 1080p. Ikaw lang sa buong mundo nagsabi na 1080p ang Grand because its big display + low resolution screen combi is very well known.

    • uyayi says:

      Ito siguro yung sinasabi nilang 1080:
      Video Yes, [email protected]
      -> Yung capability yata ng camera to eh.
      Iba po yung sa screen (qHD,etc) dun sa 1080 na kaya ng camera.

      @Ferdinand Sugatan – napasaya mo araw ko.hahaha

    • pocman says:

      nakow magaral nalang kayo, ang labo ng reading comprehension ninyo. lols. o ano?

    • evollovevolvol says:

      GG si evollove. Hahaha paingles-ingles ka pa :D

    • red says:

      ayy hindi nila naiintindihan, sabi nga ni EVOLLOVE since kailan pa naging 1080p ang galaxy grand..

      si FERDINAND ang nagsabi na 1080p ang galaxy grand..think before you comment..

    • Si evo po nagsabi na hindi 1080p ang grand. Pag na absorb mo na ung conversation tsaka ka magcomment. Tama lahat ng sinabi ni ferdinand sugatan. Wala naman syang sinaving 1080p ang screen. Ang sinabi nya 1080p – which is true para sa video capture. 720p lang kasi tong cherry na to.

  7. infoseeker says:

    battery lang down
    pero sa price bawi for the rest

    • lol says:

      Anong down sa battery? P8,000 lang yung Omega HD hindi P20k+++ para mag-expect ng malaking battery. Kung gusto mo bumili ka ng Motolite pang back-up mo.

    • infoseeker says:

      @ lol

      try mo compare cloudfone 4160mah at lenovo P770
      check mo rin motolite ng memory mo, at anong smartfone na P20k+ ang may 3000mah+ ?

    • mayma says:

      Samsung Galaxy Note 2. 3100 mAh. :)

      And yes, Smartphone parin siyang maituturing.

  8. al says:

    looks like a rebranded imobile IQ6…

  9. teemot says:

    thank god cm ang nagrelease nito, buti hindi starmobile baka umabot 12k presyo nila nito! lols in ya face starmobile! ty cherry mobile!

  10. Techjunkeez says:

    Wow that’s awesome affordable SP with 1Gig ram. Kewl!

  11. andy says:

    nag announce rin ng flame 2.0 quadcore php 7k

  12. Bakes says:

    OmegaHD is supposed to be a Lava Xolo A1000

    • Name: king says:

      supposedly pero oem nya ay i-mobile iq6… 8mp lang si xolo, si iq6 ay naka 12mp

  13. garz says:

    Looks like a bargain!

  14. Justin says:

    .. then after a few months, Cherry Mobile will release a quad-core phone, with similar specs, at the same price.

  15. denisexy says:

    I’ve been dilly-dallying on buying any Cherry Mobile unit. Hindi ba sya sirain? Yes it’s cheap but still, it’s not easy throwing away 8k for something that would not last for a year or two. Opinions?

    • mark says:

      meron ako cm titan. at tight ung build nya kht plastic lng ung likod. pra siyang glaxy s2 na 5inch. kung masisira man in one yr, may warranty nmn kung in two yrs, nako aus na cguro un. 4 sure nga wla png 1 yr kht hndi pa cra ung phone bka gus2 mo na ult bumili ng bago kc may mas maganda ng specs at the same price na lalabas eh. kya kung practicality ang paguusapan, super sulit ng cm. it’s really a steal kumbaga.

    • ricabebe says:

      bakit twng napapadaan ako sa sm north CM customer service lagi marami tao.. punong puno… hmmmm

    • ronald says:

      Bakit kaya ang haba ng pila sa cherry mobile stores on launch day ng new smartphones at tablet na tinda nila? Hmmmmmm. And when i pass any of their stores, there is at least one buying customer. Sa ibang tindahan wala. Hmmmmm.

  16. evollove says:

    I think this is a great addition to Cherry Mobile’s phone lineup, but the sad truth remains that they have their previous phones left waiting in the wings for the much-needed Android updates. The highly-capable Magnum 2X for example, is still stuck on outdated software. CM forces their customers to buy newer phones rather than taking care of their old products.

    A disgusting business practice, in my honest opinion.

    As for the phone, it is great to see a 720p phone with 1Gb RAM and the 12MP sensor all combined brought in by a Filipino company. Even if we are stuck on Mediatek’s MTK6577, we get decent pricing and we have moved past the 512Mb RAM complaint we often see for these kinds of phones.

    • evultim says:

      pero sa price point naman nila do you really expect updates? pag meron bonus na yan. yung ibang branded nga mismo hindi naguupdate sa mga hindi flagship model model nila. tapos pag china oem i doubt gagamitin mo sya for 2 years, in less than a year bibili ka naman ng bagong model. hehe.

    • Paquito says:

      I believe this has something to do with CM’s practice of rebranding china-made products. Since they did not manufacture the phone, then most likely, they do not have the ability to push updates to whatever it is they’re selling.

  17. Glen says:

    Wow, Dragon Trail Glass??!?!?
    Ang alam ko Sony pa lang gumagamit nyan ah.
    Ma try nga to see kung mas ok talaga sya sa Gorilla Glass.

  18. darren philip says:

    sulit na para sa presyo niya. magagawa rin naman nito ang ilan sa mga nagagawa ng mga mamahaling phone. ;P

  19. Jin_ says:

    how about the flame2.0. quad core, for 7k.

    downside is the battery.


    • evollove says:

      Gut feeling says this is a re-branded Karbonn S1 Titanium.


      If so, by all means go ahead and release it Cherry Mobile!

      Random thoughts: If MT6589 phones go mainstream here in the Philippines come summertime, I believe the Galaxy S4 will have a rather lukewarm reception once it gets imported. But who knows how the economy will fare by then? It’s election year and we may see another explosion in numbers among the nouveau riche who want to climb the proverbial ladder of society.

  20. Gerry says:

    this phone was spotted in Thailand…
    i am just glad CM was able to bring this home for a much cheaper price!


  21. lawrence says:

    Dragon Trail Glass
    BSI Cameras (both front and back)
    1GB RAM

    Panalo na. Hindi na ako magrereklamo sa ibang flaws niyan! hehe

    • tuks says:

      pano kung tagilid ang accelerometer? hehehe gaya nung flare? ayus lang?

    • lawrence says:

      may Flare ako. been using it since December. Yung initial problem niya with accelerometer was solved by a rom upgrade and calibration.

      siguro wala kang Flare, ‘no? hehe

    • Tebats says:


      Tang ina kang bobo kang pulubi ka wala ka naman pambili. Baka nga 3310 lang gmit mo jan e

  22. yuja says:

    Kahit anong unit pa yan, bastat galing sa CM, duda ako and dont want to put my money on them again. bad experience kasi eh.

    • tuta says:

      lols, ang hindi mo alam pa iba-iba yung china oem bawat modelo. ilang beses ka ng bumili ng cm? at anong celpon ng cherry last mong binili? baka naman yung mga hindi pa android nasubukan mo?

    • chacha says:

      we bought a fusion bolt tablet on the launch date, upon almost a week of usage, the battery doesnt seem to last long, i brought the unit last Friday to Cherry service center, they found out there’s something wrong with the battery, they said it’s an isolated case, replaced it immediately with a brand new unit today. Kudos to their new service center management, they’ve improved their CS.

    • chacha says:

      …PS. pero marami pa rin nakapila pag hapon, hehe
      sa dami ba nman ng narelease na nilang phone dapat lakihan na rin nila service center nila.

  23. arsee says:

    matibay b nmn yan

  24. Vincent says:

    Matibay nman kasi yan e, nsa gumagamit yan

  25. paolo says:

    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! :)

    • StupidKiller says:

      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

  26. Bibz says:

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

  27. balatricks says:

    lag @ 0:24 ??

  28. chacha says:

    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

  29. Tigrrr says:

    Dual band only? Pffft.

    • Tebats says:

      putang ina kang hayop ka eh puro ka reklamo wala ka namang pambili

    • PhSMASH says:

      @Tigrr tingin ko po wala kang dapat ipagsisi kung dual band lng ang OHD talo kpa ba sa price nyan?

  30. 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.

  31. Yukichan says:

    ..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..

  32. Mog says:

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

  33. 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

  34. mr. von says:

    pwede po ba makapag skype using this CM Omega?

  35. 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

  36. 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

  37. 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.

  38. lovelygrace says:

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

  39. rhedelicious says:

    sana pwd maka pag skype dito

  40. 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.

  41. angel says:

    kaka bad trip nmn, buong bicol inikot q para sa omega hd, ala p din aq mhanap,.. bkit out of stock nito? pls help kung san meron,.. 09399195010
