Cherry Mobile Aqua S10 Pro 5G for gaming? The best under PHP 8K?

As a recap, this device is boasting a 6.78-inch FHD+ screen, 7nm MediaTek Dimensity 700 octa-core processor,  Mali-G57 MC2 (950MHz) GPU, 4GB LPDD4X RAM, 128GB UFS 2.2 expandable storage, 5,000mAh battery, 18W fast charging, and 10W wireless charging. It even has Liquid Cooling tech for better thermal management.

The Cherry Mobile Aqua S10 Pro 5G feels pretty premium for the price with its lightweight and high-quality polycarbonate material. It provides an eye-catching design as well as a heft that makes it easy to hold. It does have a slippery finish that is also a fingerprint magnet.

The screen is also very good for the price. Being an FHD+ screen, the display so the details and sharpness are good. It is also surprisingly vibrant and bright as well making it usable indoors and outdoors. It also has Gorilla Glass protection as well. For audio, it comes with bottom-firing speakers that are also decent sounding.

Cherry Mobile also highlighted the Liquid Cooling system. Even after 3 and a half hours of gaming, it only got warm but never got uncomfortably hot. Even after we drained the battery while gaming, the temps of the Aqua S10 Pro 5G only got a few degrees higher. Impressive!

The 5,000mAh battery lasted around 6 hours of normal usage on-screen time. After 3 and a half hours of Genshin Impact, we were left with 20 percent battery still. The battery charges with an 18W charger so it would take 90 minutes to fully recharge.

Being one of the most affordable 5G smartphones in PH, the Cherry Mobile Aqua S10 Pro 5G delivers a faster and stable connection for gaming and other tasks.

In our gaming tests, COD: Mobile ran pretty smoothly. Being a budget smartphone, you can expect good performance but a bit of a sacrifice in terms of graphical quality. The battery lasts long and it didn't struggle even with a lot of fast-paced action on the screen. It was able to go up to Medium settings in graphics with the high framerate option.

Genshin Impact was able to run in Low settings with the Dimensity 700 SoC. It did manage to get a few frame drops with a lot of things to render on screen. Genshin Impact is one of the heavier mobile games so for a budget smartphone.
