GLOBE Telecom or Smart Communications? Which of the two telcos delivered on their promise of better internet from November 2016 to January 2017?
WE put Apple’s iPhone 7 Plus through the wringer last year, and though dozens of premium rivals have been introduced since then, the current-gen iPhone remains one of the most valued and sought-after phones in the industry. We’d even argue that its esteem has only grown with time, even whilst the likes of LG and Huawei have armed their new signature devices to the hilt, and are gearing up for a strong showing this flagship season.
WE’VE reviewed the P19,990 Vivo V5 Plus, and it left us seriously impressed, particularly when it comes to taking bokeh-laced photos with its dual-lens cameras. And Vivo isn’t done with selfie phones yet, outing the Vivo V5 Lite last month and offering budget- and selfie-conscious folks a cheaper solution to stepping their game up on social media.
THE leaks started several days ago, when images of local ads starring South Korean star G-Dragon for the new OPPO F3 and F3 Plus surfaced online and spread like wildfire among international news outlets. Sought for comment on earlier reports, OPPO Philippines simply told us to wait for an official announcement. And so we waited.
THE LG G6 made the rounds online and on social media after its announcement at MWC [Mobile World Congress] 2017, and soon enough, you might be able to officially snag one in the Philippines. We assume this because the LG G5 (click for complete specs), the outgoing G series flagship, is currently available on Lazada Philippines for P22,995 ($457) — down from its launch price of P34,990 ($696) a year ago.
WE’VE had UnionBank of the Philippines’ EON card since 2013 because we needed it to get our salary from Yahoo. Obviously, we haven’t used it since we left the company because we didn’t even know that a lot of features have been added to it. Well, not until we came across a story that says the bank has introduced selfie banking.
THE Philippines has seen a good number of decent midrange phones come through the door as of late. Lenovo is looking to add the recently launched Lenovo K6 Note (click for complete specs) to the list, which comprises the OPPO F1s, Vivo V5, Vivo V5 Lite, and Huawei GR5 2017 (aka Honor 6x), among others.
IT’S D-Day. Almost two months after the official unveiling in its native Japan, the Nintendo Switch is finally ready to be scooped up in stores worldwide. Yes, including the Philippines.
