Acer Aspire V3 Hello Kitty hands-on: Adorbs!



Acer’s recently released Hello Kitty laptop has me (and the whole of the interwebs) pining for this cute pink gadget. Finally, I got to see it in real life! *cue excited squeals*

Is it really this pretty? Is it really this pink? I find that out and more in 3… 2… 1…

It comes in a pretty box.

According to Acer, there are less than 300 units available in the market. Time to run to the stores?

The laptop is as amazing as I had imagined.

The laptop lid has our favorite Sanrio character in all her pink glory. This side of the laptop has a smooth, glossy finish and the whole thing has delicate pink details.

It has a Hello Kitty trackpad!

This laptop is just so extra, extra Hello Kitty, that is! The trackpad is easily my favorite feature.

The box contents are just as cute!

The laptop comes with a Hello Kitty envelope with a Hello Kitty-shaped startup guide and stickers — lot’s of them! ?

This is a good start.

But wait, it doesn’t end there! Even the startup page is especially cute. I have to admit, there were excited squeals when I booted this thing up. I asked myself how this can get any better and well…

Even the wallpaper is Hello Kitty!

This Hello Kitty laptop is the gift that keeps on giving.

Just look at all this… awesomeness!

Hello Kitty doll, lamp, and books not included

Specs-wise, this laptop is pretty decent. It’s an Acer Aspire V3 with 4GB of memory and 1TB HDD which runs on Windows 10. You’ll have to shell out PhP 45,999 in the Philippines for this baby — though if you’re a Hello Kitty lover, it may be well worth it.

This limited edition laptop is available at major retailers and Acer Concept Stores. It retails at SG$ 1,198 in Singapore and THB 25,990 in Thailand.

Vivo’s road to becoming a top smartphone photography choice

Thanks to the X80 series, V23e 5G



Earlier this February, vivo released the mid-range V23 5G series. Then, two months ago they introduced the flagship X80 series proving that the brand means business when it comes to becoming one of the top choices for mobile photography.

In fact, GadgetMatch already did two separate Camera Shootouts with the X80 Pro – one against the Huawei P50 Pro and another versus the iPhone 13 Pro Max wherein it matched up quite nicely when pitted against other premium flagship phones.

To recap, the vivo X80 Pro in particular sports a 50MP ultra-sensing GNV sensor for its main camera, with a 48MP IMX598 wide-angle camera, 12MP IMX663 portrait camera, and 8MP 5X periscope camera completing the setup.

The entire X80 series is also powered by ZEISS optics, with all lenses meeting ZEISS T coating standards. Aside from that, vivo also champions image stabilization with the Gimbal Portrait Camera, Active Centering OIS System, and 360-degree Horizon Leveling Stabilization for smooth photos and even videos.

Among the things that also stood out for the X80 series was its night photography and videography. These were made possible by the vivo V1+ Chip of the series which was designed to enhance night video denoising and HDR performance even under the most challenging lighting conditions.

vivo’s ZEISS Super Night Cameras across the entire vivo X80 series make them superior night photography options, which features such as Super Night Video and AI Video Enhancement

The vivo V23e 5G doesn’t lag far behind as well, with Natural Portrait Mode, AI Portrait Restore, and steady video shooting on its camera setup that includes a 50MP main, 8MP super-wide angle, and 44MP front camera.

So the next time you consider buying a smartphone for its mobile photography and videography capabilities, these vivo models should surely be on your shortlist.
