Motorola Moto G5S and G5S Plus launch in the Philippines

Published

on

Motorola‘s presence in the Philippines lives on. The Lenovo-owned company brings in their new smartphones and opens more concept stores across the country.

With the local launch of the Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus, the company brought its latest budget and midrange offerings to the Philippine market. Both share a lot in common, but the latter has more to offer than its non-Plus sibling.

Moto G5S

The Moto G5S has the essentials of an Android phone: a crisp 5.2-inch Full HD display, all-metal body, long-lasting 3000mAh battery, and pure Android version. The battery even supports TurboPower fast-charging, which provides five hours of battery life in just 15 minutes, according to Motorola.

Camera-wise, it has a 16-megapixel rear camera with phase-detection autofocus and a wide-angle 5-megapixel selfie camera with its own LED flash. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 430 processor with 4GB of memory and 32GB of storage.

Moto G5S Plus

If you want more, the Moto G5S Plus offers a bigger 5.5-inch display, faster Snapdragon 625 processor, and dual rear cameras. There are two 13-megapixel sensors on the back, giving it the features you’d expect from a dual-camera phone. But aside from depth-sensing and background blur, the Moto G5S Plus can also apply a selective black-and-white effect after taking the shot.

The Plus variant also has a premium all-metal body, 3000mAh battery with TurboPower, and pure Android software (with a few Motorola apps, of course).

Both models are treated with water-repellent nano-coating, have dual nano-SIM card slots, a fingerprint reader for security, and run Android 7.1 Nougat with a promised update to Oreo in the coming months.

The Moto G5S is priced at PhP 10,999 and will be available starting October 20, while the Moto G5S Plus has a price tag of PhP 14,999 and will be on sale by October 10. Both phones are heading to Motorola stores nationwide, and online via their official store on Lazada.

Huawei’s Nova 6 5G apparently has the best selfie camera

Thanks to the dual-camera setup

Published

on

Benchmarks are often skewed because they fail to judge real-life experience. However, they do help us understand the nitty-gritty of a gadget and establish results in an empirical manner.

DxOMark has published its camera test results for the Huawei Nova 6 5G, and it turns out this phone tops the selfie charts. Huawei introduced the Nova 6 5G in China today with dual shooters on the front in a punch-hole design, similar to the Honor V30.

The phone achieved a score of 100 while the Galaxy Note 10 5G comes second as it managed to score 99 points. This has officially given it the top spot for selfies amongst its competitors.

The phone sports a 32-megapixel primary selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture. In addition, you’ll also find an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens with an f/2.2 aperture. DxOMark tested phone’s front cameras with over 1,500 test images and more than 2 hours of video footage.

According to the test results, this setup can provide good exposure in pretty much all conditions. It also managed to capture wide dynamic range, and white balance was also spot on.

The tests were carried out in a controlled environment and also in natural settings outdoors. DxOMark maintains that all default settings were used.

All in all, the test proves that the Nova 6 5G has a capable selfie camera setup, as marketed by Huawei as well. For now, the phone is restricted to the Chinese market and we should be seeing a global roll-out in the coming months.
