Mobile games have actually become more popular this year probably due to the quarantine limitations produced by the recent pandemic. As the entire country was in lockdown inside their houses, people turn to their gadgets to keep them company and as their window to the outside world.

Although mobile games can operate on just about any mobile phone, you can’t assist but stress that your smart device might not be able to keep up with the needs of mobile games. This is why numerous phone brand names have created gaming phones that have the required specs to be able to perform well while playing. However specialty smartphones such as gaming phones come with a large cost.

But fear not! A Philippine phone brand name has produced a video gaming phone that is best within spending plan!

Enter, the Cherry Mobile Aqua S9 Max.

This premium-looking jade green smartphone will make you take a review as it looks more pricey than its P9,999 price tag.

Out of package, it comes with earphones, Type-C cable television and 18watt charging brick, a user’s manual, and a tempered glass screen protector apart from the currently set up screen protector on the phone


You will find on its right side the volume rocker and a textured power button. At the bottom of the phone, it has a 3.5 mm audio which unfortunately, is starting to disappear on mobile phones nowadays. Beside it is the main microphone, Type-C USB port, and a single downward-firing speaker that is loud enough to hear your phone alerts and the sound from your mobile games. Left wing is the sim card tray for two sim cards and a devoted sd card slot. This is generous in my opinion because numerous smart devices out there have their second sim card tray double as memory card tray too and you can only utilize it one at a time.

You can unlock the Cherry Mobile Aqua S9 Max through its devoted fingerprint scanner situated at the back or facial recognition using its 32-megapixels front cam.

It runs with the most recent Android 10 with a dark theme choice and has an Helio G90T processor with liquid cooling innovation with 4GB + 128GB Memory that is expandable up to 256MB.

We put Cherry Mobile Aqua S9 Max to a video gaming test and installed Call of Task and League of Legends: Wild Rift mobile games.

Its frame revitalize rate is remarkably smooth and quick. It was likewise able to render well the games’ graphics including the god rays or sunbeams that normally gets pixelated on some smart devices. The graphics on screen partnered with its good sounding speaker provides players a really immersive feel that will actually get you into the groove of video gaming.

In terms of phone heating due to overuse, you will only feel a small heat somewhere at the back-center of the phone, and it is not the kind of heat that gets you concerned or unpleasant to touch.

Apart from gaming, photography is among the strong points of the Cherry Mobile Aqua S9 Max. It has a Quad rear electronic camera that consists of a 48-megapixel IMX582 main video camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle video camera, a 2-megapixel depth sensing unit, and 2-megapixel macro camera.

It also has a non-removable 5130mAh battery with 18w wired charging which is enough to offer you hours of video game time and stand by time.

Whether you are a hardcore player or simply someone who wishes to play games to pass the time while waiting or doing nothing, the Cherry Mobile Aqua S9 Max can be your mobile phone. With its top of the line processor and premium look, who would believe that it is just P9,999? Its Quad Video camera is also something worth discussing as it can take on most flagship electronic camera phones in the market.
