Design and build
Cherry Mobile gets my respect in this category. When compared to the past models that Cherry Mobile has released, the Aqua S10 Pro has a more modern look.
In short, the Cherry Mobile Aqua S10 Pro’s design can go head to head with the current contenders in the market today. You can flaunt it and people will comment “Ganda ng phone mo ah.. Cherry yan?? “Di nga!?!”
The phone comes with all the camera modules you need for your media content, a 48MP + 5MP ultra-wide + 2MP depth sensor + 2MP macro rear cameras, LED flash.
The camera UI looks boring. This comment is inherent to the fact that the devices come with bare Android 11 software. No customized skin or whatsoever. So, even taking photos or videos, you’ll have a learning curve.
Cherry Mobile Aqua S10 Pro vs Xiaomi Redmi 10
Our local contender has an upper hand, so to speak, because of these qualifications.
A slightly bigger screen, a more powerful CPU, faster storage, a dedicated microSD card slot, a higher selfie camera resolution, fast wired charging, wireless charging feature, and a more inexpensive 6GB + 128GB variant are all improvements.
Our opponent, on the other hand, has a number of advantages that our local guy does not.
These include Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, IR blaster, NFC, dual speakers, FM radio and reverse wired charging.
If your decision will be based on pricing, our local guy retails for only P7,999 with one variant only. The opponent is priced at P7,590 for the 4GB + 64 GB while the second variant that has 6GB + 128GB retails for P8,590.
Cherry Mobile Aqua S10 Pro vs Infinix Note 10 Pro
A close contender to our local guy is the Note 10 Pro by Infinix. If you go side by side with their specs, the battle is so close.
But the Chinese brand has the upper hand in terms of specs. That includes 180Hz touch sampling rate, a little upgraded chipset (Helio G90T), a 2GB difference in RAM, a higher megapixel rear camera plus the ultrawide lens.
In terms of pricing, there is a P2,000 price difference. The Infinix Note 10 Pro is priced at P9,990 vs the Aqua S10 Pro which is sold at P7,999.
The Cherry Mobile Aqua S10 Pro outperforms its predecessors. I really admire the smartphone’s appearance and construction. It can compete with the market’s other players. Other features worth mentioning are the 30W quick charging and wireless charging.
What I wish for Cherry Mobile to invest in is the software. It is time to put some marketing budget on the UI to further improve its overall presentation.
