When Cloudfone launched its first ever product back in September 2011, the Cloudfone Ice, it had a simple and pure mission: to provide quality and affordable smartphones for the Filipino.
Cloudfone has come a long way, and in a fast way, since those days, but its mission has never wavered.
Beginning only with a little over 22 Partner Stores and 5 Kiosks, in roughly 6 years, Cloudfone now has over 1,000 stores Nationwide and with potency to go beyond its Philippine borders.

Cloudfone ended last year being awarded the Best Smartphone Brand of 2017 Editor’s Choice and among a host of various other awards from award giving tech organizations that are but testaments of the quality behind its products.
How is all this possible in a short span of time?
Despite the fast pace of technology in the smartphone industry, Cloudfone has never failed to ask the question, “Will this product be awesome for the Filipino?”
Cloudfone has never missed to ensure that every product it releases, not only has the latest technology and sleekest design, but it also ensures that the value of the phone is something the average Filipino can afford, and those three things, ultimately are what make Cloudfone products, awesome! In the words of Eric Yu, President and CEO of Cellprime Distribution Corp., “Creating quality products are great but creating quality products the Filipinos can afford is even greater.”
As Cloudfone prepares to introduce to the market its new Q4 offerings, it has created an inspiring video, not to promote a product, but to promote the value behind the motivation for its proposition, and that is the quality inside every individual who strives for excellence.
In the video is Andrei Ingco, known in the streets of the Metro as ‘Kalye Irving’. He has been featured several times by News Outlets for his skills in basketball but Cloudfone saw something else in Kalye Irving, an inner quality, that for them, is a reflection of the company’s values.
“Kalye Irving is a little boy with a gift; but as with all gifts, unless it is opened and used, it only remains a potential.
Kalye Irving has not only unwrapped his gift but has shown tremendous heart in developing his skill.
Coming from a humble background and without much advantage, he took whatever was available to him, and made use of those to get better. He didn’t let any obstacles bring him down. I think that’s one of the things that make him awesome.
The other thing that is so inspiring about Kalye Irving, and I think, where we perhaps see a connection with Cloudfone, is that, even though he’s not the best yet, he continues trying to be the best and that quality in his attitude leads him to help and inspire his family and so many people around him. I think that is what is truly awesome about this kid.
Cloudfone, is built and designed with this similar attitude. True quality is revealed when the quality eventually helps people to be more awesome in their own respective ways. We have so many stories that we learn of everyday about how the quality of our products have helped different individuals from all walks of life be more awesome and inspire other people, simply because, the Cloudfone they have, performed beyond their expectations.
We have a story of a nursery school teacher, Jet Mongalo, who is able to do his lessons and inspire his students, so much better all because his Cloudfone Next Infinity allows him to do all that he needs for his classes, in a fast and quality manner.
We have a story of Prince Videz, from Camarines Norte, who is now having to turn down invites to cover weddings because when he bought and began using our Cloudfone Next Infinity Quattro for pictures, people really thought he was a professional photographer with an agency.
We have numerous stories of these daily and I’d like to think all this is because we never drifted from our simple proposition 6 or so years ago, and that is to provide quality and affordable smartphones for the Filipino.
I hope you enjoy the video and I hope it inspires all of us, that in whatever we are working on or wherever we are in life at this moment, always remember that when we have quality attitude, the possibilities are always infinite!” (Eric Yu)
