Punyeta ba namang mga local brands puro octa core ang alam. kulelat naman sa battery at RAM. Give us full HD, please!

23000 ang score ng ASUS Zenfone 5. Dual core lang yun. Di hamak na mas tipid sa battery (correct me if I’m wrong.) At 2 GB RAM pa. Plus it’s a foreign brand. Mas maraming devs.

Their phone models are apparently getting even more and more better. But what’s more into a phone is the built & quality. And i can tell that once in my life i have been brainwashed by their shit misadvertisements. Its true that the phone is processing well but in just less than half a year my cosmos s got faulty and the next thing i know its not working anymore. cherry has voided my warranty for a very little dent. And also, they wanted me to pay 80% of the selling price which is approx 7500 pesos. No Way for a shitty phone like Cherry Mobile. No Way. I learned my lesson and that hurt me financially coz i had to buy a new phone but everything’s went well now that im usinng a new phone from a different manufacturer. Less hassle and less worry on my end as a consumer. And satisfaction guaranteed.

Yeah, their customer service sucks.

If u wanted to encounter malfunctions & experience shitty cust service, id say that U would want to buy this phone. Coz it will give U a lot ofheadaches in the future.

Just saying. im just concerned & wanted consumers like me get what they deserve in the quality of product/service they purchase with their own hard-earned money.

Ok sana umpisa ng Cherry Mobile dun sa flare. Kaso yung kinita nila imbis na sa after sales support in invest, sa mga endorsers nila binuhos… Para namang gumagamit yung mga iyon ng Products nyo. Sa word of mouth pa lang at reviews dami nyo nang hatak. Never buying local phones beyond 4k again.

kayong mga nagrereklamo bago kayo bumili ihanda nyo na tseklist nyo na dapat tingnan at subukan sa phone, videohan ang sarili at ang produkto while unboxing dapat kita receipt at phone S/N at makiselfie sa store rep at manager para pag nasira o naging depektibo itampal nyo sa kanila pamblack mail at ikakalat nyo sa social media at ipasa sa dti. ganyan dapat ang effort sa pagbili ng mura at substandard na phones mauumpog din yan.

Agree. Shame campaign at NTC ang kailangan. Tatawanan lang kayo ng mga yan hangga’t di sila natatambakan ng formal complaints. Hayaan ninyong malugi sila sa kakasagot ng subpoena para magtanda.

Dapat din natin iconsider yung mga newbies and non techy people na first time bibili. Hindi nila alam yung dapat tignan and usually, sila yung madaling iconvince na bumili. Dapat pagandahin ng CM Quality Control sa umpisa palang para wala nang room for compaints or repairs.

yes that’s the sad part, price becomes their bait. ask cra-king, this has EVER been their expertise.

but we can choose to be “wise” before buying…anything.

after all, if anything goes wrong with our purchase, we could partly blame ourselves and ask…
have i thought much about buying it?
done homework?
did some comparisons?
asked someone their opinion?
suits my preference?

or did i just…
bought it because i had the money?
looks cool to me?
never knew what “exactly” to look for?
fell for what “they” told me?
saw someone using it?
saw their ad and kinda liked it?

we can always avoid most of the IFs and BUTs if we put much effort before deciding the purchase.

these companies are making us used to the idea of cheaper purchase and thus, makes the ever cliche line “you get what you pay for” effective.

bottom line
we can always “think” first before buying.

I would disagree about your MyPhone. Hindi sila pareho ng CM. Why? I’ve had 2 MyPhones and never ako nagkaproblema sa service. Why? Because I never had to have it serviced! Hindi nasira. Ung isa, kaya lang wala na kasi nadukot. Ung current, eto walang problema kahit ilang bagsak na.

Maglokohan pa tayo… Pare-pareho lang lahat ng local phones in terms of quality at durability. Hindi lang talaga maiwasan na meron mga lemon units kahiy branded pa yan. Ang problema kase ay yung warranty ng mga local brands. Dapat meron talaga time period no less than 3 months na full replacement warranty for defective units.

Certified Migraine (CM) ang services nila, lalo na pag unit replacement, ilan beses ka pababalik balikin at pag antayin ng 4hrs bago mo makuha ang technical report. At pag magpapareplace ka na, sasabihin nun babaeng masungit sa counter, wala n daw silang stock na pamalit. Talagang pinahihirapan nila mga tao. Goodluck sa mga bibili.

For me my cherry mobile experienced kahit gaano pa kaganda lumabas phone nila. I extremely advice wag kayo bibili. You know what pag nagka problema ang phone ninyo kahit may warranty pa yan. Part of their marketing strategy is to look for a fault in your phone. Kahit konting gasgas lang yan o kaya maliit na dent. Vo-void nila warranty ng phone mo.

Bakit ko nasabi at alam? Kasi dalawang phone kuna pinagawa sa kanila still under warranty. But they void it. But in my case hindi ako pumayag I complain them sa DTI at hindi sila nanalo. Mapapansin ninyo sa Sm North umaga pa lang sus ang dami na nakapila para magpa gawa ng Chery Mobile phone. May iba pang issue pinagawa yoong phone wala pang ilang araw sira na naman. Kaya if I were you guys. Wag na wag na kayong bumili ng Cherry Mobile phone. Sayang lang pera ninyo.

I am not a fan of so called “locally branded phone” kasi nga sa quality and after sales service (experience it before). Anyway there should also be a lemon law in such devices….kung meron man, dapat matutukan ng DTI mga ganyan. Its like they are trowing trash to the consumer and hoping to get away with it.
