10 films to Netflix and chill to

Snuggle up and get cozy

Published

Let’s cut to the chase: you want something interesting enough to be worth watching but boring enough to Netflix and chill. A neat trick? Pick classics. That way, if or when either of you have already seen them, you get to get cozy and do other things. If you’re staying in while watching Netflix and chilling out this month, burrito up and throw some popcorn in the microwave. We’ve got ten films you should keep on your Netflix and chill watch-list this month:

When Harry Met Sally…

When Harry Met Sally is a film of happenstances, missed opportunities, and serendipity. Harry and Sally meet, grow apart, and find each other again. This time, they grow an intimate friendship and bump into a confusing chance of their relationship developing into something more.


While You Were Sleeping

From mundane to plot twists left and right, While You Were Sleeping is the perfect romantic trainwreck to pay half attention to. Lucy saves Peter, gets mistaken as his fiancée, and falls for his brother, Jack. If that’s not confusing enough, Peter wakes from his coma and doesn’t recognize Lucy.

Notting Hill

William is a quiet Notting Hill bookstore owner who stumbles upon a famous actress, Anna, entering his shop. They meet again and grow fondness for each other. Notting Hill is a story of two contrasting lovers working on being together without the lack of trying.

Time Traveler’s Wife

Henry meets Clare in a Chicago library where their love sparks. Henry hops in and out of Clare’s childhood, puberty, and adulthood. Things take a horrifying twist when pieces of Clare’s sweet memories and Henry’s time travelling strains the relationship. Watch it here.

Magic Mike

Roofer during the day, stripper by night. Mike secretly wants to dabble into a furniture-making business but struggles with debt. Things get complicated when his colleague, his girlfriend’s brother, follows him to the club, becomes a hit, and gets over his head. Watch it here.

Moonrise Kingdom

A young boy and girl fall madly in love and run away to an island off the coast of New England. The town splits up in search of them while they wander off together. Moonrise Kingdom is about love, escape, and longings.

Blue is the Warmest Color

Adèle is a high school student who begins to discover her gender preference. With no interest in men and a rejection from a girl she had interests with, Blue is the Warmest Color is about her examination of social relevance, sexuality, and sexual exploration.

Crazy, Stupid, Love

Cal and Emily have the perfect life living the American dream together. Things take a turn when Emily asks for a divorce and shatters their seemingly perfect relationship. Crazy, Stupid, Love is about Cal’s attempt at returning to the life of a bachelor with his friend’s help.

No Strings Attached

Adam and Emma cross paths and hit it off. They agree on being friends with benefits but their relationship gets strained over time with murky limitations of detachment. No Strings Attached is about the physicality of health, the struggle to disassociate, and honesty with oneself. 

Fifty Shades of Grey

I know, this is the perfect bit of the list where I come up and become self-aware. Fifty Shades of Grey is a terrible film, but it’s one about sex and that’s all it takes really. It’s the perfect one on the list that cuts through the crap and lets you truly Netflix and chill.

OPPO A9 2020 Hands-On: Massive and Playful

For every kind of junkie

Published

on

OPPO recently streamlined its smartphone lineup. From Find and Reno, OPPO introduces us to the newest A series. On paper, it seems the A-series is a combination of the F-series and former A-series. Sitting in a sweet spot between an affordable price range and incredible performance, the OPPO A9 2020 is shaping up to be a contender in a sea of smartphones fighting for the crown in the midrange category.

With Xiaomi and Huawei firmly in the lead, can OPPO put up a fight just like it did with its F series? Let’s find out in this Hands-On!


Starting with looks, the OPPO A9 2020 gives in to a premium-like design

It has a dedicated fingerprint scanner and a quad-camera setup on its rear

You can find the power button here…

Its top is clear, but its bottom shows-off its speakers, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB-C port

It has a 6.5″ IPS LCD screen with a waterdrop notch for the front camera

The OPPO A9 2020 prides itself with its new design that took inspiration from its R-series. In addition, OPPO focused on the phone’s display, reinforcing its IPS LCD screen with a Toughened Corning Gorilla Glass 3+.

Moreover, its screen has new features such as the Sunlight Screen which allows you to adjust the contrast so you can read the screen, even under strong direct light. It also has a Blue Shield which filters out blue light, relieving your eyes from fatigue and strain and protecting your eyesight.

Going big and definitely not going home

Sporting a Snapdragon 665 chipset along with an 8GB RAM, 128GB storage (which you can expand up to 256GB of external memory), the A9 2020 really joined the battle of offering power to midrange devices. OPPO decides to make everything flashy and… big.

For instance, it boasts a humongous 5000mAh battery that can last you throughout the day. Furthermore, it’s capable of reverse wireless charging (through OTG) so your friends can rely on you when their phones run out of battery.

Gamers will find delight with the A9 2020. Thanks to Game Boost 2.0, OPPO’s accelerator technology aims to resolve latency, reduce touchscreen lag, and optimizing energy consumption to avoid overheating.

OPPO decided to up their game for entertainment junkies, too! Packed with Dual Stereo Speakers and Dolby Atmos sound effects, expect a superb, immersive audio experience.

Smarter, smoother

The A9 2020 runs on ColorOS 6 based on Android 9.0. Now, its interface is cleaner and smoother. Icons look cute with their subtle gradient tones.

It also comes with smart functions like Smart Assistant, Riding Mode — which lets you remain uninterrupted by notifications and incoming calls — and a Music party app which lets multiple phones connect in the same LAN through a Wi-Fi hotspot for synchronized listening.

Navigating the phone is now easier with a single hand, too. Through Gesture Navigation, you can return to the home screen, check out recent tasks, switch pages and applications by just swiping up, left, and right.

Cameras for all angles and scenarios

The OPPO A9 2020 shows off its highly versatile camera setup. It has a 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel portrait lens, and a 2-megapixel mono lens on its rear.

On its front is a 16-megapixel camera with AI Beautification technology which automatically identifies your skin tone, age, gender, and skin color for customized beautification, giving you a pretty yet make-up free look.

More features include artistic portrait styles, ultra night mode, and 4K video shooting. More sample photos here:

Is the OPPO A9 2020 your GadgetMatch?

If you’re into massive and chunky smartphones with a solid build, the OPPO A9 2020 might be a good match. It offers power and performance for gamers and entertainment junkies, and its smartphone has a versatile camera setup to appease your needs. While there may be Xiaomi and Huawei leading the midrange category, OPPO definitely cooked up a powerful yet affordable phone that can go toe-to-toe with its rivals.

The OPPO A9 2020 is available in two colors: Space Purple and Marine Green. Its retail price is PhP 15,990 and will be available for pre-order starting September 20 until September 27 in Lazada, and through OPPO stores, authorized dealers, and e-commerce partner sites like Shopee, Akulaku, and Argomall on September 28.

For those who want to avail through Home Credit, customers can pre-order the A9 2020 starting September 20 with flexible payment terms of six and nine months with a guaranteed zero percent interest.
