Top 10 Best Mobile Phone Brands in the Philippines

The mobile phone scene in the Philippines is absolutely buzzing, and you've got a ton of choices. From budget-friendly gems to cutting-edge flagships, there's something for everyone. But when you're deciding where to drop your hard-earned cash, it all comes down to the brand.

Some brands are known for their incredible camera tech, while others are the champs of long-lasting batteries or super-fast performance. Maybe you're always chasing the latest and greatest, or perhaps you're on the hunt for a reliable workhorse that doesn't break the bank.
The Top Ten
1 MyPhone

MyPhone doesn't just release Android phones indiscriminately. They conduct surveys first. By doing so, they not only understand what consumers want but also gauge how well the product will perform in the market.

Unlike other brands where you only realize you've made the wrong choice after purchasing, MyPhone users remain loyal. Consumers of "other" local brands, on the other hand, consider switching to MyPhone and never regret it, as it's the best local brand in the country.

2 Cherry Mobile

Cherry Mobile started with smartphones that have basic features. It's true that one of their selling points is their price. However, my take is that a good brand does not rest on that point alone. A brand that undergoes innovation is likely to thrive in this very competitive market.

Cherry Mobile smartphones have explored these qualities and continue to offer products that value the Filipino lifestyle. This is truly what our country needs: competitive local products, one of which we can be proud of. #StandHighFilipinos

3 Apple Apple Inc. is an American multinational technology company that specializes in consumer electronics, software and online services headquartered in Cupertino, California, United States. Apple is the largest technology company by revenue (totaling US $365.8 billion in 2021) and as of May 2022, and, as... read more

I've had the 7+ for about a month and a few weeks now, and it's really worth the money! Both the camera and selfie camera are well-made, and the system operates quickly. The security features are also improved.

I'm proud of this phone.

The layout is simple, with everything given a clear symbol and name, such as Settings or Camera.

Still the best-looking phones on the market.

Consistent user experience keeps users happy.

Strong security thanks to a strict approach to the platform.

Smooth operating system upgrades.

Apple's iPhone is the best. All the apps that are installed are very useful, especially FaceTime. The phone is also durable and well-engineered.

4 Samsung The Samsung Group (or simply Samsung, stylized as SAMSUNG) is a South Korean multinational manufacturing conglomerate headquartered in Samsung Town, Seoul, South Korea. It comprises numerous affiliated businesses, most of them united under the Samsung brand, and is the largest South Korean chaebol (business... read more

User-friendly. Ever since I've had a phone, I started using Samsung. It's not a finicky device. Everything you want to do, like downloading an app, is easy. The camera also has high resolution.

Samsung is a well-known brand, not only here in the Philippines but also in other countries.

The best. No one compares to Samsung mobile phones. It's still the number-one brand trusted worldwide. It's not just about its appearance, but also its fully loaded apps and great features.

Samsung is the best when it comes to its specs, unlike others. The gadgets are very durable and, despite their high price, the quality is really there.

5 Nokia Nokia Corporation (natively Nokia Oyj, referred to as Nokia; stylized as NOKIA) is a Finnish multinational telecommunications, information technology, and consumer electronics corporation, established in 1865. Nokia's main headquarters are in Espoo, Finland, in the greater Helsinki metropolitan area,... read more

To me, Nokia is one of the best companies that offer good product services to their customers. Nokia always aims for customer satisfaction. The quality of Nokia handsets also reflects the good value of their products. Nokia continues to offer and produce new products for all of us, and we look forward to seeing new handset ideas in the future.

For the flagship phone especially:

- Great camera, created for low-light conditions? WIN!
- Good interface? WIN!
- Snapdragon S4 Dual Core? WIN!
- Different colors to choose from? WIN!
- Wireless charging with cool wireless charging accessories? SUPER WIN!
- Phone running the Windows Phone operating system? It's not just different. It's a growing uniqueness among phones these days! SUPER WIN!
- Price is not an issue. It has always been worth the Nokia quality.

Come on. It has been Nokia all these years!

6 ASUS ASUSTeK Computer Inc., (stylized as ΛSUS) is a Taiwanese multinational computer hardware and electronics company headquartered in Beitou District, Taipei, Taiwan.

You know what? ASUS phones became the top seller when they started releasing phones back in 2014. Today, they are still leading because of the camera, RAM, internal storage, and battery life.

One of the fastest-growing mobile phone entrepreneurs in the country has gained a spot in some of the top ten best-selling smartphones in the Philippines. Moving from 12th to 6th is a sign of a good strategy for them.

Kudos to the people behind ASUS's success. May the odds be ever in your favor.

Asus is the best phone for me because it has many features in every phone they make and is very durable.

7 O+

O+ can be used in any country. It offers great specs at a cheaper price than any other branded phone with the same specs. So, there's no need to buy an expensive phone.

I like all the features of this phone, including its great body and quality.

I have an O+ Android 8.6, and it is better than other phone brands here in the Philippines.

The camera and durability are of good quality, and it's not so expensive.


Quality over quantity. This is the best phone for me. I've got an HTC Explorer and am planning to buy a higher model. The experience is the best - I mean the graphics, speed, and the Sense UI.

At first, you will think it's not running on Android because of the way HTC customizes the ROM of their phones.

I have been using an HTC phone since 2013 and I have no regrets choosing HTC over more famous brands. The clarity of the photos is excellent, and there are no hanging issues.

Since I got my HTC phone, I've been amazed by its features. It's not just a phone. It's like a mobile computer. That's all.

9 Acer Acer Inc. is a Taiwanese multinational hardware and electronics corporation specializing in advanced electronics technology and is headquartered in Xizhi, New Taipei City, Taiwan.

Check out the newest lineup of models. They all have amazing specs, features, applications, and are globally branded as trustworthy smartphones. Let's all try it and be unique!

The best smartphone I've ever had. The specs are superb, and it's not that expensive. I was a Samsung user, but I decided to try something different from what I usually have, and I am pleased with Acer.

More power to Acer!

10 BlackBerry

One word to describe BlackBerry? Exclusive. It has the best QWERTY keypads and is distinct.

Elegant yet useful. You can definitely say it's worth it!

Being unique is the best. No need to compare.

The Contenders
11 Starmobile

I bought my dad a Starmobile phone. It has fallen a couple of times but is still alive. (It's the next Nokia in terms of durability.) The standby time is two weeks, with no hanging issues. Its appearance is stylish and classy. It doesn't look like other mobile phones.

It's been almost two years, and we have no regrets. I'm eyeing the Engage 7TV+ for my mom. I absolutely love Starmobile!

The phone is affordable yet elegant. Some might think it's not the best, but it is one of the best out there. The design and features justify the price.

The after-sales service is considered one of the best, especially considering the brand is just starting.

12 Oppo

I bought a secondhand, 8-month-old OPPO Find 7a last December 2015. I'm still using it (as of August 2016), and it works fine and smoothly. It has a great camera, UI, processor, resolution, and other features. It has some hairline scratches, but the touch capacity has not been affected.

If I'm going to buy a new phone, I'd still prefer this brand and model.

I wonder why it's at #18. Oppo is the best smartphone I've ever had. It has great features and quality, not only in the phone itself but also in the service they provide.

Oppo is amazing. I like the camera, and the battery doesn't drain quickly. However, when the data is on, it drains really fast. Still, I love it.

My Oppo is fully charged around 9:00 AM, and by 6:00 PM, the battery percentage is around 44%. Even on that day, I still had my data open. I love you, Oppo.

13 Sony Sony Group Corporation, commonly known as Sony and stylized as SONY, is a Japanese multinational conglomerate corporation headquartered in Kōnan, Minato, Tokyo, Japan... read more

Long-lasting and it's a trusted brand. Doesn't explode like Samsung, right? Anyway, aside from that, the classic design is truly attractive. The cameras on the phone produce great shots, and the audio is definitely high quality.

Sony phones are among the best for user-friendliness, longevity, and trustworthiness. They have unique features, especially their cameras, which capture great photos like a pro. Wow, they offer HD on both the front and back!

Some of their models are also dust-proof, shock-resistant, and water-resistant, all with great tech design.

14 Huawei Huawei is a Chinese multinational technology company founded in 1987. It specializes in telecommunications equipment, consumer electronics, and smart devices. Huawei is one of the world's largest suppliers of telecommunications infrastructure and has a significant presence in the smartphone market... read more

I used to own a Huawei Y511, and I can fully testify that this is one hell of a durable phone. It has a very good internet connection via Wi-Fi or data connection. The call signal is also very good.

Huawei is not just a phone company. It's also in the IT solutions business.

Affordable phones with quality features and great durability.

People said in their opinions that Huawei has good performance and long battery life.

15 Lenovo Lenovo Group Ltd. is a Chinese multinational technology company with headquarters in Beijing, China, and Morrisville, North Carolina, United States.

I got the Lenovo A6000 last July of this year. Initially, when it was running on Jelly Bean, I found it to be nice with smooth performance and fast reflexes. However, when I upgraded it to Lollipop, as suggested by the company, it became slightly slower and started hanging occasionally.

Nevertheless, overall, I can still recommend and tell you that if you want a good and quality mobile unit without exceeding your budget, Lenovo is the right choice. It's suitable for us!

The price is good for the quality. The phone won't break even if you drop it, forcefully smash it against someone's head, etc. The phone still works great. No regrets.

16 LG LG Electronics Inc. is a South Korean multinational electronics company headquartered in Yeouido-dong, Seoul, South Korea. LG Electronics is a part of LG Corporation, the fourth largest chaebol in South Korea, and often considered as the pinnacle of LG Corp with the group's chemical and battery division... read more

My first cell phone was an LG, which is why I'm voting for it. However, LG still has a lot to do to match Nokia, Samsung, and Apple. That being said, LG's high-end cell phones are very, very good.

I love its costly phones.

I believe that this brand places importance on several human values, such as quality of work, value for money, and pride for the country.

LG is the best, especially the LG G2, because of its unique design and monster specs. You can never go wrong with this device.

17 Cloudfone

The Thrill gives us full satisfaction at an affordable price. The 430X is unmatched in battery life. Good buy.

Great specs. It's not entirely popular, but it's proven to be effective.

Very high specs and affordable. This should be on the top list! Cloudfone is better than Samsung, HTC, Cherry Mobile, etc.

18 Alcatel

Great specs at almost half the price of the leading brand. Tested it twice already for my subscription loyalty.

Alcatel is made in a First World country, and First World countries manufacture the finest products. It's not totally popular, but it's proven for its low cost and durability.

A branded phone (a French phone) but with a price lower than other popular brands like Nokia.

19 Torque

In terms of quality and affordability, Torque is the #1!

The most affordable phone with high-end features.

Affordable and timely release of models.

20 Kata

I dropped the phone from the second floor without a casing and it's not even scratched! Amazing durability!

Kata is an amazing mobile brand. Regardless of its normal price range, Kata is a good mobile to have because it offers good quality.

21 Firefly

Yep, it's the Firefly Intense that showed how dumb it is to buy other brands with a 5-8k budget. Firefly Intense offers the most value and the best screen.

Very affordable price with high-end specs and features, like the new Allure 64 LTE with a 360-degree fingerprint sensor, all for a price under 8k!

Greatly designed mobiles, very affordable pricing, good performance, and most models come with tempered glass as an extra gift.

22 Xiaomi Xiaomi Corporation, registered in Asia as Xiaomi Inc., is a Chinese designer and manufacturer of consumer electronics.

I have bought a Redmi 4x Note, and it's my best smartphone experience ever, compared to secondhand, high-end, non-Android phones. For me, the most important thing is high specs, not how popular the brand is.

This phone is also made for both upper- and lower-class people - a high-end phone with the price of toy-like or classless phones.

I have bought a Redmi 1S and I am impressed with the specs. The price is also affordable, considering the good features the phone possesses. Being a tech-meticulous individual, this phone has root permission, and I can do a lot of tinkering on it.

23 Arc Mobile

Arc Mobile MEMO is the best. No lag ever!

This is the best brand of phone ever!

Yeah, no lag! This is the best brand of phone when it comes to performance and software operations.

24 SKK

Good picture resolution, great speed with UC Browser or Opera. The only thing is, I have to clear the cache and clear data of Google Search that eats up my internal memory storage.

SKK Mobile is the best mobile phone I've ever tried.

Nice phone! Like the Rush Pixie 1300 with a 5-inch display.

25 DTC

I've been using it for almost 5 months, and it works so great.

Reliable phone at the right price.
