In Laptops, Tablets by Ramon LopezLeave a Comment

AMSUNG is aiming to give Apple’s iPad Pro a serious run for its money; hence, the release of the new Samsung Galaxy Book in the Philippines. It is priced at P44,990 (around $890) locally, which isn’t cheap, but neither is the hardware it is going up against. The 10.5-inch iPad Pro with 64GB of storage, and sans the accessories, sells from P36,990 ($732) in authorized stores.

Samsung Galaxy S8+ review: The phone to beat in 2017

In Phones by Ramon Lopez4 Comments

ITH the Samsung Galaxy S8+ (click for complete specs), the larger of the two Samsung hero phones for this part of 2017, the catch is clear: Big-screened phone — bigger than what the Apple iPhone 7 Plus can offer, bigger than you might think if you haven’t seen it in action firsthand — in a reasonable, borderline-manageable size.
