Cherry Mobile Aeon Features Surprisingly Good Specs at Php5,999

In case you missed it, images of a leaked promotional flyer have been circulating among the Cherry Mobile groups as of late. This flyer showcases a number of Cherry Mobile’s upcoming phones, including the Urban, Omega Spectrum, and now the Aeon. The Cherry Mobile Aeon isn’t that much different from the Omega Spectrum in terms of specs, but if you’re willing to spend an extra Php1k for a better screen and camera, then by all means, the Aeon is probably for you.

While both the Aeon and Omega Spectrum come with 5 inch HD IPS screens, the Aeon also features OGS technology, which eliminates the air gap between the touch panel and the actual display and fuses it into a single panel. The result is that the display sits much closer to the surface, resulting in slightly brighter and more vivid colors, not to mention better viewing angles.

In addition, the Aeon features an upgraded 13mp BSI autofocus rear-facing camera vs the Omega Spectrum’s 8mp camera. A higher megapixel count may not necessarily translate into better photos, but the BSI sensor should perform better than a typical sensor and produce better-lit shots. The front camera is also better than the one on the Omega Spectrum. You get a 5mp front camera on the Aeon as opposed to a 2mp front shooter on the Omega Spectrum.

As for the rest of the specs, they’re pretty much the same on the Aeon and Omega Spectrum. You get 1GB RAM, 4GB ROM, WiFi, and Bluetooth. The Aeon does have the advantage in that it runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean whereas the Omega Spectrum only runs Jelly Bean 4.2. So do you think the extra Php1k is worth the bump in specs?

About The Author

Back when I started MobileTechPinoy in 2012, phablets weren't a thing yet. I enjoyed the stares I got from iPhone owners whenever I whipped out my Samsung Galaxy Note at the time. I'm much more budget-conscious these days though and am perfectly fine with using phones from any of our locally brands.
