Cherry Mobile Omega Infinity Quick Review

Cherry Mobile Omega Infinity Quick Review

Cosmic Technologies recently announced their latest flagship handset, the Cherry Mobile Omega Infinity. We took a couple of days with it so we can share some early observations about the device.

Straight out of the box, the Omega Infinity looks massive. The solid metallic body contributed to the heft, thanks to that single slab of aluminum that encases the glass front panel.

The handset feels like an HTC One Max with a hint of the iPhone 5. It’s massive yet, at the same time, still maintains that good grip on the hands. This handset is, without a doubt, the best one Cherry Mobile has ever had in terms of build quality and design.

The 3.5mm audio port and the micro-USB port are at the top end while the volume rocker and power button are on the right side. The microphone and speakers at the bottom end while the micro-SIM card slot is on the left side.

Pop out the SIM cradle and you will be greeted with the SIM tray that supports 2 micro-SIM cards. We originally thought that the other one was for the microSD card slot but there was none for that. It would have been better if CM had it with a single SIM and used the other tray for the microSD instead.

In any case, the dual-SIM feature should suit those who want to have a powerful and flagship device and use two different SIM cards with it (instead of using a secondary phone).

The back side of the Omega Infinity is slightly curved and mostly covered in aluminum with matte finish. There is a marginal piece of polycarbonate coating on the bottom end which is probably designed to allow radio signals to transmit with minimal interference.


At the top left corner of the back panel sits the 18-megapixel rear camera with its dual-LED flash. Beside them is the noise-canceling microphone. On the same row are two more small pinholes the size of the microphone but they seemed to be sealed off.

The front panel is completely covered with glass from edge to edge. The 5.5-inch display looks stunning, crisp and sharp with it’s full HD resolution (401ppi). It’s got very wide viewing angles, good contrast and deep colors.

The bottom corner has enough space for the soft keys (Menu, Home and Back) though the placement seems to be closer to the edge of the device rather than the screen.

According to the device settings, the custom interface is called MyUI G2.0. It strips off the usual Android interface and replace it with a linear menu with 5 windows. The app drawer has been removed so all installed apps go directly to one of the home screens.

We also ran our complete set of benchmarks to see where the Omega Infinity sits compared to other octa-core smartphones we’ve reviewed before.

As expected, the results are pretty good but nothing spectacular that would set it apart (besides, it’s still one of those MT6592 chip).

Quadrant Standard: 16,506
Antutu Benchmark: 26,162
NenaMark2: 54.1fps
Vellamo: 1,871 (HTML5), 579 (Metal)
3DMark: 6,832 (Ice Storm Unlimited)

With a suggested retail price of Php14,999, the CM Omega Infinity is looking to be the local handset to beat in terms of design and hardware configuration.

5.5-inch IPS LCD display @ 1920×1080 pixels, 401ppi

  2. netgearboy says:

    Ayos to! I don’t mind the brand bibili ako neto

    • Moymoy says:

      ganda sana ng specs,nakakainis lng built quality ng cherry phones, kung di umaangat ang screen, ampangit ng sound output from the headphone jack.. mabilis naman ang costumer service pero juice ko naman every week ka pipila sa service center for a repair. bad experience ko with cherry mobile. sa mga nagsasabing “eh di wag ka nang bumili” di na talaga.

    • Pat says:

      Anong model? Kung hindi pwede idisclose, magkano bili mo? Na tetempt na rin ako bumili ng local brand, wag nyo na ako subukang sabihan na panget CM. Just answer the question above. Thanks

  3. Name: Celestina says:

    Bibili ako nito pero is this available nationwide? Saan pwedeng bumili nito?

  4. Rich says:

    I like this one 5.5 just my size right in the middle. With all the specs I like but yea maybe more GB would have been good or OTG.

  5. rockz says:

    off all the CM phones I’ve seen this is the most good looking, a mix of HTC One and iPhone 5, plus it has 32GB internal storage which i think enough …

  6. abuzalzal says:

    Yung Optimus G Pro Php15,990 na lang sa Kimstore

    May guaranteed KitKat update pa yun

    Tsaka Snapdragon 600 na…. Susmio, Mediatek Octas are pure hype, core per core mahina ito kumpara sa SD600

    • secret says:

      eh di wag ka po bumili, wala namang pumipilit sau. .eh sa gusto nilang bumili niyan, pera naman nila yan. .hahah

  7. ABC says:

    Very neat! Sophisticated look! Ganda! Thumbs up!

  8. Maize Corn says:

    Does this come with an update? or stock Cherry Mobile GUI sub Android firmware?

  9. star says:

    could you make a side by side comparison with NOVO7 THL T200 both have the same price 14,999.

    • Peggysue says:

      Thl T200 has 32gb internal memory but you can add another 64gb in microsd slot. It is also octa core, full hd IPS screen.Thl T200 is way way better.

  10. HackerGonzales says:

  11. Bryan Cerezo says:

  12. MIUI user says:

    “MyUI G2.0” — kinahoy lang sa MIUI GUI.

    • backstabbd88 says:

      oo nga, pati itsura ng UI, kopya sa miui.

      “According to the device settings, the custom interface is called MyUI G2.0. It strips off the usual Android interface and replace it with a linear menu with 5 windows.The app drawer has been removed so all installed apps go directly to one of the home screens.”

    • garbageteller says:

      napakabobobo ng mga naniniwala sa kasinungalingan nga pinoy daw na brands tulad ng cherry mobile. GUI na lang ba naman ng sikat na chinese brand ninakaw pa, patunay ito na kahit gui ay walang control ang mga negosyanteng yan, apps/icons/bootscreen/wallpapers lang talaga pinapalitan nila para maging brand nila. palibhasa sa pirate phone maker sa china nila binili kaya pirated GUI ang nakakabit. pagdating sa quality nganga, kapag bumili ka nyan siguraduhin mong napakaingat mo sa paggamit at napakahaba ng swerte mo para di masira agad. sa 15k makabili ka na ng branded quad core phones wala ka pa pangamba, yung xperia z waterproof pa dagdag konti na lang

  13. edwin says:

    Available na ba ito sa cebu?

  14. Chimoy says:

    What a lovely phone, can’t wait to own one. But I hope a ‘’big brother’’ will come out soon… (Omega Infinity 6 inches) with all the specs. Then I will buy IT!!! ”PLEASE I BEG YOU TO MAKE 6 INCHES”.

    • ram says:

      You like the specs? Why not try the starmobile diamond x1 it has almost the same specs, a 6 inch screen, two yamaha speakers for better loudspeakers, thin aluminum form, better camera amd also, its NOT a CherryMobile

  15. medyo says:

    maganda naman,keso hindi lang kasi sya LTE,tanong ko lang po Gorilla Glass ba yan??

  16. julie says:

    available po yan dito sa wellcome g.tuazon balic balic

  17. Zobel says:

    Flagship Alcatel na presyo. Di hamak na mas matibay yun.

  18. razco says:

    stop copying that iphone 5s….you cannot compare your phone to is a different level…

  19. JV says:

    Ok na sana yung specs. Kaso nga lang interpolated camera. New Mediatek MT 6592 can only support up to 16 Megapixels only. 18 Megapixels ang CM Infinity. So the 2MP is only a guess of the camera sensor. Try nio magresearch ng MT 6592. Mas gusto ko pa dito ang MYPHONE Agua Infinity. Mas ok pa ang quality.

    • Izetta says:

      I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog
      that’s both educative and engaging, and without a doubt, you
      have hit the nail on the head. The problem is
      something which not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
      I’m very happy that I found this during my search for something
      concerning this.

  20. Mike Ibarra says:

    ang ganda ng built pati ang specs. Pero iba parin kung sana kahit hindi 32gig mem basta may micro sd slot parin. at sana hindi built in ang battery. kc madalas kapag naghahang or nagkakaproblema ang phone, kailangan mong tanggal kabit ang baterry. anyway good buy parin to para sakin.

  21. Greetings from Colorado! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to

  22. Way cool! Some extremely valid points! I appreciate you writing this article and also the
    rest of the site is also very good.

    CM omega infinity vs MP agua infinity
    i choose MP agua infinity and why?
    1.maganda ang after sale service
    2.boombastic ang sound at sa cherry mobile naman ay basag
    ang sound quality telling you sa lahat ng philippine brand na cp myphone lang
    ang pinakamagandang camera,pure 16 mp sensor at less grainy.
    cherry mobile is 18 mp at interpolated, mas grainy at wash out
    ang colors compare to myphone.
    4.memory? personal prefference yan,ikaw ang mag i choose
    myphone for USB OTG function.16 gb is enough for me.
    5.higher battery capacity compare to cm

  24. terra says:

    Lol at all these jologs myphone salespeople mocking a rival brand.

  25. One of the areas of sweetest day gift ideas for wife are
    some gifts that any woman would love evesn thought they are not on her
    wish list. ” They’ve put their lives for many, many years, into a profession or business that was once their choice, and now it is time to relax and enjoy their senior adulthood as they see fit and according to their lifestyle. Second, it’s not right to take the blame of the world on your shoulders when it’s just your relationship to oppressive power that you just haven’t understood yet – that is the problem, not you.

  26. It’s something you’ve always done and, even if you wanted
    to, couldn’t stop yourself from doing. Golfers will make associations andd build memories frtom simple gestures, knowing that it is the game and whom
    youu play it with that matters most. Make sure that you buy uniqe gifts for women and
    men to make yourself different from other people who are also on the same birthday party.

    Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect
