OPPO F3 Plus Unboxing

Published

OPPO is taking its “selfie expert” claim seriously, and it shows in its latest offering that we’re unboxing, the OPPO F3 Plus.

The Chinese smartphone company’s new phone is headlined by its dual-camera, but it’s not where you’d normally find dual-cameras. Instead of the back, the dual-shooter is in front.

The first one is a 16-megapixel camera with a 1/3.1-inch sensor with an f/2.0 aperture, while the other one is an 8-megapixel wide-angle shooter. If you’re crazy about selfies, then there’s probably a lot to like about this new phone.

OPPO promised that with this phone, you’ll be able to take good photos anytime, anywhere.

It also comes with low-temperature fast charging care of OPPO’s VOOC tech. The OPPO F3 Plus comes in black and gold, and retails for PhP 23,990. You can preorder the phone now at Lazada.com.ph.

ROG Phone 6 shows off its design ahead of launch

Featuring a second screen

ROG Phone 5s

In a few weeks, ASUS is unveiling the ROG Phone 6. The next generation of gaming smartphone promises stellar performance packed inside a sharp design. Naturally, the power inside the phone isn’t a gigantic surprise, given what’s already out in the market today. However, figuring out what it will look like is always a treat. Now, a short time before the official launch, the ROG Phone 6 makes a small debut elsewhere, revealing the phone’s drip.

Recently, the phone popped up on TENAA. As with most filings, the entry comes with a set of photos that reveal both the front and the rear of the coming device. While the new device does share some similarities with its past siblings, the ROG Phone 6 has its own unique appeal.

Like the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate, the new phone will have a secondary screen on its rear. However, while the former looks sleek and smooth, the latter has a more industrial charm, paired with a larger camera island. It looks like something from Guardians of the Galaxy, as opposed to the ROG Phone 5 Ultimate’s Iron-Man glam. That said, the new phone still looks interesting.

In terms of hardware, the phone is expected to launch with the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, 16GB of RAM, and 6000mAh of battery life. ASUS is launching the phone on July 5.

ING Philippines

In a statement made on June 24, 2022, ING Philippines has announced it will be leaving the Philippine retail market.

The bank was launched in 2018 in the country. However, the “uncertain global macro situation in the last few years” have prompted the bank to not expand their operations in the Philippines and other countries.

Still, the institution of Dutch origin assured Filipino clients that for now, they will still be able to access their accounts safely.

ING will also inform its customers of any changes that may impact their accounts.

While preparing for the bank’s eventual exit, customers are also urged to transfer their funds to another personal account using the app.

They can transfer up to PhP 1 million using InstaPay or PESONet (3 to 5 banking days) at a PhP 50,000 limit per transfer.

iOS 16’s message editing feature might not work with Android phones

Or with older iPhones

Published

on

Recently, Apple unveiled new features coming to iOS 16. Among all the notable goodies coming to everyone’s favorite Apple devices, one standout feature is the ability to edit messages. Users will finally be able to edit embarrassing typos or unsend mistake messages. However, not everyone is getting the update. And unfortunately, not getting the update can spell problems when interacting with others that do have it.

As what happens with every update, Apple is cutting it off at a specific level. Older iPhones won’t get the update. Naturally, they won’t enjoy the coming features either. Besides not being able to use the features themselves, these devices won’t be able to interface with them as with newer devices, too.

As such, older phones won’t see the little “edited” sign in modified messages, as reported by 9to5Mac. Instead, they’ll be sent separate messages saying, “Edited to,” followed by what the new message is.

It’s even worse for unsending messages. Older iPhones won’t even try deleting the message. If you run an older device, you’ll still see any message that an iOS 16 user deleted, rendering the new feature absolutely useless.

While the light is shined on the disparity between old and new devices, an equally important focus is the interaction between Android and iOS. Android doesn’t have editing features or use the same messaging standard as iOS. Interactions might end up being the same.

Of course, we’re still some time away from the update’s official launch. Apple still has time to work on features. Additionally, they can also release minor updates after the grand launch.

iOS 16 is expected to launch later this year.
