MyPhone Officially Endorses Rodrigo Duterte


Highly unusual for any brand to endorse a candidate

We’re roughly a month away from the upcoming presidential elections, and judging from our Facebook feed, everybody has their own opinion about all the candidates. Of course despite the heated debates about which candidate is better than the other, you can expect that high profile brands to keep clear of the political bruhaha, lest you alienate potential customers.

That doesn’t seem to matter to MyPhone, who has officially backed Rodrigo Duterte and Alan Peter Cayatano. The company is the first tech company in the PH to officially endorse candidates for the president and vice president positions.

With that, we want to get your feedback – is this a good move from MyPhone? Will you still buy their phones even if you prefer a different candidate? Let us know in the comments below.

Tapos kahapon naman biglang may nagappear sa notif na “iboto sa Senado Isko Moreno”, so akala ko ad ng isang app na nadownload ko pero hindi ko alam ung aling app. So ang ginawa ko ni-long press ko ang notif then press App Info ayun pala Cherry Fun App pala pinanggagalingan ng Ad. Cherry Fun is a built in app ng mga Cherry Mobile phones.
