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.

‘Milestones’ celebrates GadgetMatch’s story and commitment

For years of covering technology

Published

on

It’s been five years since GadgetMatch was established. Founded on the premise of making life better and easier through technology, we’ve come a long way since then. We saw how technology plays a key role in shifting our lives. Even then, we’re still looking forward to what innovations tomorrow will bring.

To commemorate our journey in covering the latest news in technology, we tasked a Filipino artist to create a set of wallpapers entitled Milestones, reflecting our story.

Milestones: Peak

Peak symbolizes being on top of what we do; the pleasure of seeing a beautiful content created after an arduous journey. It emphasizes on the contentment we feel about our quality work and a metaphor for looking over the horizon; we won’t limit our creativity and will never stop innovating, just like technology.

Milestones: Passion

Passion is the inner fire inside us. There’s a burning desire we have from day one, and we never let it die because we stay committed to our vision and mission: Explaining technology in simple terms. While keeping up with technology can be exhausting, our passion burns stronger.

Milestones: Perception

Perception is a wallpaper that relies on the viewer’s perspective. It’s a reflection of people’s perception and our journey that we don’t share. Are we going up or going down? In reality, we’re all just going up, and the stairway symbolizes the little steps we take to achieve our goal. We’re not rushing, but we’re on our way. Help us achieve 1 million subscribers on YouTube!
