Let’s face it: Smartphones won the war on casual photography.
And if you find yourself taking more photos and videos with your smartphone than with your compact camera, then Huawei might have something that’ll convince you to retire your point-and-shoot gear or dump them in the “to sell” bin altogether.
I’ve got 10 smartphones on my desk, but one stands out because of its size.
In a sea of phones that are 5 inches and larger, Apple’s 4-inch iPhone SE goes against trend. It’s a big-phone world out there, not just because larger screens are hip, but because a phone’s display is a window to a universe of productivity, entertainment, and possibility.
Samsung Electronics is finally bringing its highly publicized Samsung Pay to Southeast Asia, and Singapore has been chosen to be the first recipient. This follows up on the service’s successful rollouts in South Korea, China, and the United States, as well as the demand from Singaporeans themselves.
After reports of Apple attempting to sell refurbished iPhones broke out last month, we finally have a verdict, and it’s not a good one for the Cupertino-based company.
India has flat-out rejected Apple’s push into the country’s market with used iPhones. This was the brand’s second attempt at penetrating the massive Indian population – and its 220 million active users – with iPhones priced competitively against the sub-$150 smartphones from both Indian and Chinese manufacturers.
Samsung is currently enjoying a renaissance in the premium smartphone segment, but that doesn’t mean it has forgotten about the bargain basement from where most manufacturers get their volume orders and market share. Enter the Samsung Galaxy J1 refresh for 2016.
Midrange phones are growing in popularity these days, as more and more consumers are looking for better and feature-rich devices to upgrade to.
In the Philippines, the midrange is where the excitement is now, and it’s about to get more crowded, with the local unveiling of two additions to Samsung’s upper-midrange Galaxy A series of smartphones.
Noted Apple seer Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities today made some bold predictions for the American tech juggernaut, telling investors to expect iPhone shipments to fall this year. The “worst-case scenario,” he wrote in his investment note, is for Apple to sell less iPhones this year than in 2014 — somewhere between 190 million and 200 million units.
Acer, if you haven’t heard, recently held its [email protected] event in New York City, where it showed off a bunch of new laptops, PCs, and mobile devices that are slated to hit stores.
With a flurry of possibly desirable consumer products in its arsenal — from a Windows 10 convertible with a liquid-cooling system to a super-durable Chromebook to a smartphone with a 5,000mAh battery — Taiwan’s Acer indeed seems hell-bent on clawing out of the hole it has dug for itself in the wake of the PC’s decline.
If it wasn’t bad enough for 55 million Filipino voters that their personal and identifiable information was made public last month after hackers breached the Commission on Elections’ computer systems and stole the database for the May 9 Philippine national elections, there’s now a search engine for the data dump.
It seems Philippine presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte isn’t just popular among respondents of election surveys; he’s favored among Android users as well. Or at least his image of a crime-busting vigilante is anyway.
A 2D side-scrolling action game called Duterte Fighting Crime has been trending on the Google Play store lately. In it, you take control of the admittedly foul-mouthed mayor as he takes to the streets to dispense vigilante justice using assorted firearms.
It’s official. Facebook Philippines is now open for business.
Not that the country is a stranger to Facebook or vice versa. 49 million Filipinos access the social networking site each month, and the Philippines is where Facebook tests out many of its big ideas including Internet.org and Facebook Reactions.
Well, dear readers and fellow recovering Counter-Strike addicts, ask and you shall receive: Here’s our step-by-step guide — with screenshots and accompanying annotations — on how to get one of the most popular PC games of all time running on your Android device.
Apple just announced a refresh for its 12-inch MacBook weeks before its developer conference in June, where it is expected to show off the latest operating system updates for all its devices. As expected, the second-generation model doesn’t bring any design overhauls, though it addresses two major issues many users raised with the original ultra-thin laptop: computing power and battery life.
ASUS Philippines added yet another handset to its ZenFone line, this time designed for first-time smartphone owners who are not looking to spend too much on a mobile device. The ASUS ZenFone Go 4.5 is an entry-level model sporting a modest 4.5-inch diagonal and equally modest internals.
As if we need further proof that smartphones are basically tiny PCs that fit our hands nicely, you can now play Counter-Strike on just about any Android phone. To be clear, we’re not talking about a cash-grabbing gimmick in the guise of a mobile game, or a clone of arguably the most-loved first-person shooter of all time; this is the real deal, with AI opponents (a.k.a. bots) thrown in for good measure.
If you can get past its iPhone-esque looks, there’s much to be said about the F1 Plus. OPPO’s latest smartphone isn’t the most premium in its lineup, nor does it look anything like its little brother, the OPPO F1, but it is a phone that defies expectations in a good way.
