Poll: Which locally distributed brand makes the best smartphones?

Poll: Which locally distributed brand makes the best smartphones?




Last month, we ran a poll asking which global brands make the best Android phones. This time we’d like to do a similar poll for the local brands or the ones that only distribute their units in the Philippines. Head on to the poll widget below to vote.

We have the likes of Cherry Mobile, Torque and MyPhone that’s been around for 3 years or so. Then, the new players like O+ and Starmobile and second-tier names like Arc Mobile, SKK and DCT also joined in.


 

Pick the one which you think offers the best value for the product that they sell.

  3. Kami says:

    Considered po ba silang makers kung nag rerebrand lang naman sila at nagdidistribute?

  4. Glen says:

    O+ isn’t a local brand. US brand sya. Bakit kasama sa polls?

  6. vince says:

    no local brand AFAIK actually MAKES phones so we have to include rebranding and distribution

    I have a starmobile and i chose it over O+ only because it had a free screen protector as well as dragontrail glass

    those 2 are my top choices

  7. Ferdinand A says:

    I vote for MyPhone

  8. abuzalzal says:

    Cherry Mobile FTW!!!
    They are the only brand who can offer good-spec’d devices at a ridiculously low-price. Fusion Bolt and Flare are truly killer devices for their affordable price and no other brands could ever touch them.

    Cherry Mobile > Samsung > Apple > Micro$oft

    As always, laging kulelat ang Micro$oft dahil sa crappy Window$ OS, lolz.

    • Hate Cherry says:

      Talaga lang ha, kaya pala yung Flare ko wala pa 6 mos sira na, dinala ko sa kulungan este service center ng cherry, ayun software issue lang daw pero hindi magawa gawa, the worst service center ever, you should visit their service center in north edsa to know what im talkin about….

    • abuzalzalero says:

      abuzalzal tigas-titi para sa Cherry Mobile! Hahaha!

      … abuzalzal c===3 CM

    • wew says:

      oi bobong abuzalzal hinde lang value for money ang basehan ng dabest local smartphone brand,aanhin mo ang sobrang murang phone na may highend specs kung ilang buwan lang eh sira na agad, at malabo nang maayos edi sa huli mapapamahal ka din. mas okay na ung magbayad ng mas mahal basta sure sa quality at kung may problema man ay maganda ang customer service at magagamit mo ng ilang taon.

    • simultaneous says:

      crappy your face! iphone with android os FTW!!!

    • john says:

      lol flare at fusion bolt killer devices? dami ngang defect(multitouch issues, almost 50% of sold phones have dead pixels, TN TFT LCD ang screen pero CM advertised them as IPS panel) ni flare tapos sobrang proud mo na sa phone na yan? nakahawak ka na ba ng Windows phone? kahit siguro ang single core windows phone mas lag free pa kesa dual core CM flare mo. lol.

      cherrymobile. kacheapan.

      im not a local brand fan pero bilib ako sa build quality ng myphone. yung myphone a888 duo(with IPS display) ng kaklase ko mas mamahalin pang tingnan kung ikukumpara sa low end phones ng LG , samsung ang even Lenovo. :D kung may plano man akong bumili ng local branded phone, ill go with Myphone :D

    • joestar555 says:

      yep, ang Cherry Mobile Service Center sa amin(Dasma Cavite) ay palaging puno…puro sirang Cherry Mobile ang dala..
      kaya ayoko talaga sa Cherry Mobil…parang disposable Phone lang…

    • wew says:

      abuzalzal anu komento mo sa mga tao na nagrereklamo sa palpak na mga cherry mobile nila?

  9. Grumphus says:

    I think it would be difficult to get any big conclusions out of this poll. People will obviously vote for the brand they are using even if they haven’t tried competitors.

    I think it would be better if Yugatech does some kinda faceoff. Take the most popular phones of each brand with competing price tags and see what excels. Yugatech has the experience with all brands so they can tell us which local brand is best in what areas (reliability, support, updates, build quality, screen, camera etc.)

  10. lame says:

    smartphone makers??? you know better than that author.. this is a lame article..

  11. abuzalzal says:

    From assembly to chassis painting, I think sa Shenzen lahat

    Packaging lang yata ginagawa sa Pinas, hehe
    Oo nga naman chief YUGA, mali yung title mo

  12. Kumag says:

    Eh rebranded lng nmn mga phones nila eh

  13. EZkill says:

    bakt po di ksama Cloudfone?

  14. justwildheaven says:

    bakit di po kasali dito ang Cloudfone????

  15. metre9dmt says:

    Mali ang title ng post na ito, dapat ay “Which local brand markets the best smartphone”. Tanong lang: yung may local brands ba may pagawaan ng cell phones sa pinas? di ba lahat ay galing sa tsina?

  16. wally says:

    As a whole the best local brands are in this order

    1 Cherry
    2 Myphone
    3 Starmobile

  17. Kamote says:

    This poll is stupid. Lahat ng smartphones imported lang sa china, rebranded lang. Tanga tanga talaga

  18. bern says:

    tanong lang.

    bakit kailangan pa may login, di ba pwedeng vote->result na lang?

  19. wew says:

    Para sakin dabes diyan ay my|phone, mas mahal man ng kaunti sa cherry mobile, macoconsider pa rin naman siya na mura, at masisisguro mo pa na maganda ang customer service. Ang nakikita ko lang siguro na downside nito ay kakulangan nila sa pagaadvertise,tska siguro ung madalang na paglabas ng mga baging models ng phone(although ayoko rin naman na mayatmaya eh naglalabas tulad ng cherry mobile)

  20. Ralfred says:

    i vote myphone kc maganda ang quality and specs , and actually the performance .. kc gamit ko is a848i . so far wala pa syang problema and upgraded ko na ito sa JB .. kung qusto mo ng good quality and satisfied na hindi masisira ang phone mo .. you choose MYPHONE :)

    Pero Maganda Din ang Starmobile kc sa quality niLa pero im not sure kc hnd pa ako nagkaroon ng unit niLa

  21. -Joe says:

    Sino ba ang leading ngayon dito? Yong mobile ko ngayon na ginagamit Cloudfone 430x high capacity battery.

    Paki add na lang po dyan sa Cloudfone.. Salamat

  22. joestar555 says:

    Reliable ba kamo?
    2 lang ang reliable brand sa pinas na locally rebranded…

    *Myphone
    *Starmobile
    .
    yung Cherry Mobile e wag nyo na isama, prone sa pagka sira kahit gaano ka pa kaalaga….

  23. manziel says:

    for tablets, im pretty much blown away by what Novo7tech has in the market right now.

  24. manziel says:

    whether it’s local brand or distro, im pretty much blown away by what Novo7tech has in the market right now.

  25. roiji says:

    ba’t walang Cloudfone?

  26. pwet pwet says:

    Pag meron nang sm bonus rebrand ng cellphone sa pinas tyak mananalo sa botohan kasi isang boto isang point sa smac lol.

  27. tmcr7 says:

    Bakit kasama yung O+? US brand daw sila sabi nila.

  28. chinitoguy says:

    Its Starmobile and MyPhone for me. I owned a MyPhone A888 earlier this year and it was really a solid experience. Hardware never gave up despite my heavy and abusive use. Now I own a Starmobile Icon. I’ve been using for 2 months and no problem at all both hardware and software.

  29. akucjustin says:

    MyPhone for me….simple lang …SOLID :D

  30. timawa says:

    the title of the poll should read: Which Local Brand [Rebrands] the Best Smartphones?

  31. csdspeed says:

    I’m never buying cherry mobile again. Some of their products are good, but their after sales service sucks. I bought a CM fusion fire and after 2 weeks, its touch screen broke down w/o any physical damage and etc. Plus it’s very slow, runs like a dual core w/ 512mb ram. I found out the Fusion fire’s processor is not an actual Cortex A9 but a measly Cortex A5. It has been almost 2 months already and still no news about the tab. Will be buying an ipad 5, a galaxy note 10.1 (2014 ed), Or if MyPhone releases a good tab.

  32. boggart says:

    are we going to see any of these locals turn out a windows phone soon?

  33. SpiderWak says:

    sir, ang dating ng tanong eh may local brand na nag mamanufacture ng smartphone. Hindi po ba rebrand lang yung mga phones nila?

  34. Orange says:

    I’ve tried MyPhone. Pero tagal na, a dual sim qwerty phone na may mapa ng pinas sa likod. It surprisingly felt solid, although I hated the map and plastic back cover. Voice calls were crystal clear. Qwerty so madaling magsms. It was a dual sim and walang problema, both sims were active. Malakas din signal. Siguro 5 years na ung MyPhone na un, buhay pa. We made it our wireless landline kasi ang galing ng voice call. Ilang beses na din nabagsak, wala naman nangyari. It never had to be serviced. Since hindi pa naman sya android, charge lasts for 3 days with moderate call and sms use. I’ve also tried buying a Cherry Mobile, pero when we tried testing the unit – dun pa lang nagloko na so di ko na tinuloy since I knew about the bad reviews.

  35. Name: says:

    i love my phone its so durable i hat cherry mobile buwisit yun

  36. Jay says:

    ang xperience ko sa paggmit Cherry mobile ay nakakabwesit.. maganda at magaling sa specs ang cherry mobile pero pagdating sa hardware ehh.. may mga nasisira agad.. hindi lang sa hardware pati na rin sa signal nakakabwesit na rin..
