Tutor, a farmer and a sound system operator, could not believe he got the Php 1 million cash prize. He had joined various promos before, but had never won anything. This made him hesitant to enter Starmobile’s raffle contest, but the staff at the Starmobile stall where he bought his Starmobile PLAY Boost encouraged him. Tutor will use his prize to purchase his own piece of land where he can build a home for his family.
Cris Joshua Jose
Jose, a 17-year-old student, wasn’t planning to get a new phone yet, but when the phone he was using got damaged, he decided to buy a Starmobile PLAY Dash, an affordable Android Marshmallow smartphone with 3G technology. After winning a brand-new car because of this purchase, he scheduled to start driving lessons this summer, so he can start driving in time for his 18th birthday.
Labsan, a young father, wanted a smartphone that has a good camera so he can take photos of his family. Following the recommendation of his wife, who already owned three Starmobile devices, he bought the Starmobile UP Selfie – an Android Nougat smartphone with 13MP front and rear cameras that take crystal, clear pictures. Winning the Toyota Wigo came as a huge surprise for him, but he is excited to give it to his wife for her own use.
“It’s very heartwarming to see our customers happy using Starmobile phones, but it becomes even better when you see the pure joy in their eyes when they receive the prizes they won from STAR-TAGAL.” said Ardie Balderrama, Sales and Marketing Head of Starmobile. “It’s an inspiration for us to continue creating high quality phones at affordable price points and making technology accessible to Filipinos.”
