Move over, Top 10 Gadgets of 2019! The most important annual review is here!

For the seventh year in a row, Pornhub has released its analytics for 2019. As always, the review is a treasure trove of insights on the world’s thirstiest habits. The analytics go through literally everything under the sun. (Including the battle royale game that porn viewers searched for: Apex Legends vs. Fortnite. Spoiler: Fortnite claimed more consistent viewers, but Apex Legends peaked higher at 357,701 searches on February 18.)

Of course, the more interesting question is: how did the Philippines fair this time around?

Depending on how you look at it, the Philippines performed a lot better! On the global rankings, the country ranked up two spots from yesteryear, nabbing the no. 8 spot ahead of Australia and Mexico.

However, Filipinos are spending slightly less time on the platform compared to previous years. Per visit, researchers dive into the watery depths for an average of 11 minutes and 19 seconds — 22 seconds less than last year. Still not a bad dive! Only Thailand gets wet longer, spending 11 minutes and 21 seconds on average.

Another point of Pinoy pride: the Philippines practices more open-minded equality with porn viewing. The country has the highest proportion of women mastering the art of self-love. Of all Filipino Pornhub users, 39 percent of which are female, contrasted to 61 percent male.

Also, 91 percent of Filipinos view Pornhub on their phones. Helpful tip: disconnect your phones from your house’s Bluetooth speakers first! You wouldn’t want to broadcast your New Year’s fireworks to everyone, right?

Now, for the meaty bits! Filipinos love Asians! In 2019, the country’s top five search terms are Pinay, hentai, Japanese, Pinoy, and Korean. Additionally, the top five trending searches are reverse missionary, locker room, perfect body, Korean uncensored, and romantic love making.

Surprise! Despite the country’s dominance in the porn rankings, Filipinos love getting more intimate before doing the dirty. Well, the Philippines takes the second-most time on the site. Maybe, Filipinos spend a huge chunk of the time getting to know the performers first. We don’t judge!

It’s finally here!

Published

It’s finally here! The much anticipated Black Shark 2 and Black Shark 2 Pro are finally in the Philippines.

First announced back in July, the Black Shark 2 is a much anticipated gaming smartphone. Powering the phone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus.

The device also comes with an AMOLED display with a 240Hz touch report rate. However, is that the display still retains a 60Hz refresh rate that lags behind its major competitor — the ASUS ROG Phone 2 — which has a display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The display’s response speed was reduced to 34.7 ms, promising faster response times during high pressure gameplay.

Price and availability

The Black Shark 2 comes in three variants: 6GB/128GB (PhP 22,990), 8GB/128GB (23,990), and 12GB/256GB (PhP 28,990).

Meanwhile, the Black Shark 2 Pro comes in two variants: 8GB/128GB (PhP 27,990), and 12GB/256GB (PhP 33,490).

The phones will be available in select Mi Stores: SM Megamall, SM North EDSA, and SM Mall of Asia starting December 13.

Best Budget Smartphones in the Philippines below P10,000

December 2019 Edition

Published

on

Welcome to GadgetMatch’s list of the best smartphones priced below PhP 10,000! Each month, we update our selection with the budget-friendly phones we believe are most deserving of your hard-earned savings.

Even though the spotlight has been on high-end smartphones this entire year, there have been a few surprisingly good entry-level handsets coming out lately, as well. So good, in fact, that we had to reassess our entire list.

Here they are in no particular order:

Redmi Note 8 (PhP 9,990)

If you think a 48MP main camera on a midrange phone is amazing, Xiaomi managed to put it on the budget Redmi Note 8. As far as smartphones below PhP 10,000 go, this might easily be one of the best.

Samsung Galaxy A20s (PhP 9,990)

There was a time when we couldn’t, in good conscience, recommend a Samsung phone in the budget segment. That’s now a thing of the past with Samsung’s Galaxy A series. The line is more streamlined and more competent than the J-series that once held its place.

READ: Samsung Galaxy A20s

OPPO A5s (PhP 6,990)

The OPPO A5s perhaps is best looked at as a transition device more than anything else. It does what you expect out of budget smartphones. It’s good to have “for now” but you might look elsewhere for a more reliable daily driver.

REVIEW: OPPO A5s

Realme 5 (PhP 7,990)

Realme is giving Xiaomi a run for its money on our top-of-mind easy phones to recommend. The Realme 5 is a real treat for people looking for a budget smartphone that provides more than what they need.

HANDS-ON: Realme 5
