CE (European Conformity), FCC (Federal Communications Commission-USA), and RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive of the European  Union) recognized STAR Inc.'s initiatives in meticulously choosing parts, partners, factories, and practices that went through strict measures in the industry to be certified.

“Under the Star Standards, the company has been able to meet its target of having the lowest product return and defect rate among local smartphone brands today,” Starmobile COO Michael Chen said.

Another important pillar of the Star Standards is the company’s 35-point quality control check where functions of individual parts like the USB port, touchscreen, speakers, and batteries, among others, are carefully tested.

“This assures the public that Starmobile devices are safe to operate and can stand toe-to-toe with products from international brands in terms of performance and durability,” Chen explained.

In addition, Star Standards also made its Android operating system in smartphones duly licensed by Google. It is compliant with Google’s requirements to secure smooth and seamless operation with the ecosystem of its services, and satisfied the steep requirements of the Internet giant.

In addition, those who will buy these high-quality and durable Starmobile products until December 31, 2017 will have a chance to win over PhP 4 million worth of prizes, including hundreds of Starmobile devices, home appliances, eight Honda motorcycles, two brand new Toyota cars, and PhP 1,000,000 in cash, as part of STAR Inc.'s STAR-Tagal campaign.
