The phone is actually the Cherry Mobile Cosmos One (without the plus) announced months ago with beefed up specs. Looks are all the same from the curves, the screen size and even button placements. Just like the Cosmos One, the Cosmos One Plus has a dedicated camera button, a feature we do not see much anymore on most smartphones. Build quality is solid and good thing it can resist scratches thanks to its Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on the display. We really commend Cherry Mobile in its efforts to improve the build quality of their phones and its after sales service.
The display is absolutely gorgeous! Colors do pop and it has excellent viewing angles. Screen has also a good view outdoors. We only had this phone for 24 hours so we have not downloaded Antutu, Speedtest or our favorite games. So far we are very impressed with its fluidity and, boy, it is fast! App launch and transitions are extremely quick! Give us a week to review this phone and take it for a spin. We are excited to try this phone! Full review in a few days.
