Today, Cherry Mobile continues to be included in the leading telecommunications companies in the Philippines. Their recent and most popular smartphone series are Flare, Cosmos, and Desire.
When the Filipino market started embracing Pinoy smartphones brands, Starmobile started to enter the scene. In 2011, in a small office in Pasig City, Starmobile started with the goal of stressing good user experience.
