GadgetMatch in BLACKPINK’s area thanks to A Galaxy Event

Samsung gave attendees a wonderful treat!

Published

on

People flipped when Samsung showcased the Galaxy A80 and its rotating camera at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand during A Galaxy Event. Then, the audience absolutely lost it when popular K-Pop girl group BLACKPINK showed up on stage to perform.

Our man on the ground, Rodneil, was pretty excited about the event. However, we’re not sure if he had his priorities straight.


BLACKPINK in your Galaxy

Folks around the Impact Arena were well aware that BLACKPINK was in the area. There were some BLACKPINK merch sellers stationed at a mall near the arena ready to dole out to Blinks that had cash to burn.

The event carried on as expected.

Then shrieks were heard all over the arena as soon as BLACKPINK hit the stage.

BLACKPINK’s members talked about their favorite Galaxy A phones after their performance but our guy on the ground was too busy taking photos to take notes. #priorities

On the sideline of the event, we spotted a BLACKPINK edition of the Galaxy A70. It’s only available in select countries, though. But maybe if you hound Samsung Mobile enough, they’ll bring it to your area too.

What did you think of the Galaxy A80’s rotating camera? Should Rodneil get a date with Jennie? (Yes.) Where else should Samsung bring the Galaxy A70 BLACKPINK Edition? Let us know through our social media channels!

GadgetMatch reacts to Huawei P30 launch in Paris

Throwing shade everywhere!

Published

on

Huawei launched the much-awaited P30 series in Paris, France. Naturally, the GadgetMatch team expressed their thoughts and opinions. See how excited they were:

Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu started the show by announcing the P30 right away. Of course, some of us didn’t expect it to be showcased so soon.


However, it was just the beginning. Everyone was aware of the P30, but no one knew what else they were launching. Yu started by presenting the new, breathtaking colors for the P30 and P30 Pro, but one color really stood out.

The highlight of the event was the unveiling of the P30 and P30 Pro’s even better cameras, and Yu’s shade against Samsung’s Galaxy S10+. 👀

The crowd was amazed when Huawei revealed their DxOMark score for the P30 Pro.

However, it wasn’t just phones that were launched. Huawei introduced earphones, new smartwatch faces for the Huawei Watch GT, phone cases, and even more accessories.

Huawei capped off the event by throwing shade at Snap’s Spectacles before announcing their partnership with Gentle Monster Eyewear.

What were your thoughts on the launch of the P30 series and all of Huawei’s other products?

Look back: GadgetMatch at MWC 2019

A glimpse at the future of smartphones

Published

on

GadgetMatch went to Barcelona as a media partner for Mobile World Congress 2019. Even though Vivo, Xiaomi, and Samsung took the spotlight beforehand, MWC 2019 still proved to be the bigger stage.

5G everywhere!

Brands including Xiaomi, Samsung, Huawei, and LG unveiled their 5G phones at MWC 2019. GadgetMatch’s Chief Content Officer Michael Josh was on ground tweeting live updates.


We’ll be seeing more 5G-enabled smartphones this year, thanks to Qualcomm.

It’s raining foldables

After the Galaxy Fold’s grand debut, it was time for Huawei to step in and enjoy the spotlight.

Just when everyone thought Xiaomi would unveil their own foldable phone, we got a hilarious surprise from their keynote.

Nonetheless, foldable phones are a trend now. Companies like TCL and ZTE are launching their own foldables, while LG refuses to join the bandwagon by creating their own style.

Who has the best camera?

MWC 2019 was also where smartphones with impressive cameras were showcased. For instance, the Xiaomi Mi 9 has reportedly beaten both the iPhone XS and Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on DxOMark. Xiaomi may have launched the Mi 9 in China but it still shined in MWC amid all the launches, and it definitely got our Associate Creative Director hooked with its sample photographs.

OPPO wasn’t giving up the fight, though. It launched its own lossless 10x zoom, and it’s incredible!

On the other hand, Nokia 9 PureView made some noise with its five cameras, and proved that this phone is meant for photographers.

Lots of… innovations?

Sony reimagined their next flagship smartphone by adding a 4K OLED Display to redefine a user’s viewing experience. It also introduced its midrange lineup, and Xperia fans were delighted.

LG wasn’t waving goodbye, as they just showcased a touchless feature with the LG G8 ThinQ. Is this the innovation we’re looking for?

MWC was just the beginning. More smartphone innovations will arise throughout the year, and it only gets more exciting from here on.
