Popularity in the Philippines
Cherry Mobile continues to deliver on its promise to the Filipinos that it will provide them with cheaper alternatives. Once again, they made true on their promise with the Cosmos series.

For the practical Filipino, the Cosmos collection gives them an opportunity to enjoy the Android world at a price they could very easily afford. The best thing is the company did not skimp on the features as each of the models was loaded with excellent specs. The smartphones were also solidly built and looks as stylish as the other top brands. Of course, the fact they are Filipino-made brings a sense of pride to the buyer.
You certainly get what you paid for with these Cosmos model so better make sure you do not really have high expectations. They are fast enough and reliable enough to spend money on but some consumers might want to look elsewhere even if it means paying for more. In short, the Android phones are "okay" and would probably be enough to get by on.
