Cherry Mobile Cubix Morph First Look Price Specs Philippines

Look what we have here, Cherry Mobile newest Dual boot Windows Android Tablet Laptop Hyrbid, Cherry Mobile Cubix Morph!

We have done a quick unboxing and here is the video.

Package includes the Cherry Mobile Cubix Morph encased in its Quick Keyboard Magnetic Case together with manuals, warranty Card and power adapter.

Cherry Mobile Cubix Morph comes with concentric embossed back design branded with Windows and Intel logo. Ports are located at the right side  - 3.5mm audio, dedicated power dc in, USB 3.0, HDMI,  MicroUSB and compartment for MicroSD.

Sports a 10 inch HD IPS Display at 1280 x 800 resolution although we wished they opted for not so picture-frame bezel. Powering the device is Intel Cherry Trail Atom X5 particularly z8300 coupled with 2GB RAM and 32GB Internal Storage. Storage has been divided for the use of both OS with Android 8GB (4GB Usable) while Windows 10 at 20GB . It must be noted that it runs the latest Windows 10 variant that supports MicroSD as storage for applications.

Runs on Windows 10 as well as Android 5.1 Lollipop. We found less bloatwares on both OS. With Android, we did like its dual column setup of menus as well as pre-installed Word and Excel. First boots up with Windows 10 but you could easily switch to Android by clicking on the desktop icon. Likewise, from Android switch to Windows by clicking on the Switch to OS that is located on toggle controls on the Android Notification bar. It remembers the last OS you used.

Comes with regular sets of connectivity features - WiFi and Bluetooth. USB Is Supported.  However we observed that with Windows 10, MicroUSB does not support data transfers while on Android it does. You do have USB 3.0 to use for your USB Peripherals.

Just basic camera features with 2MP at front and back end.

Carries a 6000mAh batttery which charges via DC as well as via microusb. No, it won't charge using both as it prefers dc. 3 Hours charging time with DC.

On the Test unit we found some bugs: Bluetooth does not receive but can be send, cracking noise from Speakers for low tones, Boot loop when you switch OS the third time, touch pad unresponsive. Hopefully can be address with drivers update or firmware update. Well seems that it was just the test unit and people who ordered the Cubix Morph were thrilled with the product especially with the performance of Intel Atom X8300 running their games and applications efficiently.

Have you bought one? can you share your experience with the device geeks! Feel Free to comment! - Kal

Priced at 5,999 5,499 Pesos. Had my high expectation for this device considering its internals and dual boot but there are things needed to be fixed. Also comes in Power Package to include a 1 year Subscription for Office 365 and HP Printer Priced for only 7,499 Pesos!

Acer Philippines ES-12 and X1117H DLP Projectors Launched

Acer Philippines launched two new value series DLP Projectors, ES-12 and the X117H.

Compared to other projector technologies, DLP produces better quality image and its technology uses a Digital Micromirror Device Chip (DMD).

Faith Kuo of Acer Philippines explains “DLP Projector Technology is different because of its Digital Micromirror Device Chip that projects a thousand mirrors to compose a high-definition image. Other technology makes use of LCD panels to produce a colored image”

This type of projector requires less maintenance because DMD chips are sealed preventing dust from accumulating and color decay.

The prime DLP projector, Acer ES-12 has a default resolution of 800 x 600 and can be maximized to 1920 x 1200 resolution. Acer DLP technology on the projector provide 3000 lumens, 1.07 billion colors and contrast ratio of 20,000:1 for brighter and rich visuals.

Acer pushes its boundaries even further for their X117H model that offers baseline features of the ES-12 but with higher lumens.

“Two biggest highlight features of the X117H is its brightness and contrast ratio,” Kuo said. “It now has 3,600 brightness compared to the mainstream brightness of 3,200 Lumens and 20,000:1 contrast ratio compared to the mainstream contrast ratio,” she added.

Acer projectors are convenient and flexible. Supporting screen ratio of 4:3 and 16:9. Have a minimum projection distance of one meter and maintain quality image at a maximum of 11.80 meters. A 40-degree keystone correction automatically adjusts vertical distortions. These products are also handy and lightweight with only 2.50 kg and can be installed easily on the ceiling.

These Acer DLP projectors are also eco-friendly and eco-smart. Stand-by power consumptions can be reduced by 90% and by 70% when turned on, good for the environment and savings on electricity.

To complete the formidable line-up of Acer DLP projectors are the: compact K138STi (38,900 Pesos) so you can take the cinema with you ; P6500 (99,990 Pesos) for a full HD experience ; S1383WHne (68,800 Pesos) that has a dust shield solution ; and last but not the least is V7500 (54,000 Pesos) which is perfect for your home theater needs.

Currently, Acer Philippines’ market share is at 32.5% as of first quarter of 2016. “We have sustained a formidable market share due to our strong channel management and quality-based products,” Kuo shared. With these high figures, Kuo assured that Acer products, from the quality of its PCs and notebooks, “the same quality can be expected from our Projector Product Line.”

Acer targets business and education. “Most of the total projector market is coming from the Academe and SMB’s. The Academe comprises of about 54 % while SMB’s comprise of 21% (IDC),” Kuo said.

The Acer ES-12 is priced at Php 18,999 and the Acer X117H is at Php 22,990. Both of these products are available nationwide.

Acer Philippines Offers Free Door-to-Door Repair Service

Acer is already a reliable and trusted IT company worldwide in manufacturing quality devices from computers, laptops to smartphones and projectors. Today, it is going the extra mile when it comes to providing great service.

Acer is introducing free door-to-door customer service program touted as the only one of its kind in the Philippines. According to Dio Vasquez, Operations Director, Acer Philippines, Inc., the program allows customers to simply call the Acer Customer Service Hotline if and when they experience problems with their Acer device. “Once you call, a contact center agent will answer and diagnose initially over the phone any problem you may have with your device.”

“These are all qualified technical support agents, all trained to handle technical problems over the phone. In time, we will increase the number of agents depending on the number of repair requests we receive,” he explained.

Vasquez said that if the problem cannot be solved over the phone, a ticket number will be created and issued by the Tech Support Team to the client, and that’s where the door-to-door service begins.

Once the ticket is created, Acer’s courier partner will be alerted and the device will be scheduled for pickup. “The customer has the option to have the device picked up at home or place of work on the date and time he prefers. After the courier representative determines that all items in his checklist in picking up the device are cleared, the device will then be brought to the Acer Service Center in Paco, Manila.”

When repairs are done, client will be informed that for delivery of the device. If client will be unavailable to receive the unit on the date and time advised, an authorization letter must be presented by his authorized representative.

Clients can check the status of their device for repair via As for turnaround time for repairs, Vasquez said it depends on the problem of the device or availability of spare parts but fittingly, the problem should be resolved within five (5) days and client advised whether the device can still be fixed or not.

The service is FREE, says Vasquez, as long as the device is still under warranty. However, since the program is still new, only notebooks with Intel Core i3 to Core i7 configurations can avail of the service. “We’ll check later if we can also provide it to entry-level laptops since they’re too many. We will prioritize first those who paid premium to avail of this service,” he added.

For those outside of Metro Manila or out of coverage area, they are directed to look for the nearest service provider partner of Acer. “As a backup, Acer has its network of service providers who can cater to walk-in clients. They can find out if their area is covered by calling (02) 555-2300 and 1800-1888-7037 (toll-free) for those residing outside Metro Manila”

Vasquez bared that Acer will not stop here. He hinted that most likely next year, they may include Acer devices that are out of warranty and diagnosis can be done via a downloadable app. “Customer, through an app, can already identify and report potential problems and send this to the contact center, who will then call them.

As more people are getting mobile and life is getting fast paced, people have no more time to go to a service center to have their device repaired. This is why Acer wants to cater to the needs of their customers. “Acer invested heavily on this proprietary contact center support system because excellent service is what customers want and truly deserve, nothing less,” concludes Vasquez.
