Vivo V7+ Now Official, 18:9 FullView Display for PHP 17,990

September 20, 2017
Top 5 global smartphone brand Vivo recently unveiled their flagship Vivo V7+, a seemingly high-end mid-range device that can deliver bang for your buck both on paper and on performance.

Vivo V7+ Now Official, 18:9 FullView Display for PHP 17,990

First off, the Vivo V7+ boasts a near bezel-less 5.99-inch display with an 18:9 display ratio, but in a 5.5-inch device's body. So you get the same body factor more or less, but with a bigger real estate. This is the same with the LG G6 and the Samsung Galaxy S8, with the exception that these are high-end devices with prices at the upper end of the spectrum - something that makes the V7+ very appealing.

Specs-wise, the Vivo V7+ runs on Android 7.1 with an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of onboard storage. It also sports a 16MP rear shooter, a 24MP front-facing camera (sorry, no dual cameras here), and a 3225mAh battery to power it all off, wrapped in a beautiful aluminum unibody shell. And to guard your phone, you have your face recognition and your rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

The Vivo V7+ is available for pre-order for PHP 17,990 until September 29, and those who reserve theirs will get a free Vivo Bluetooth headphones. It's available in black and gold colors.

OPPO A71 Launched, #SpeedyOperation Smartphone with 3GB RAM at PHP 8,990

September 07, 2017
OPPO Philippines officially launched the OPPO A71, the newest smartphone in its affordable A lineup. It's poised as a #SpeedyOperation smartphone, touting 3GB of RAM paired with a modest MT6750 octa-core processor and Android Nougat. The downside of the device is that it doesn't feature dual front-facing cameras unlike the OPPO F3 and the F3 Plus, but its as good as the older OPPO F1s.

Design-wise, the OPPO A71 looks like the OPPO A57, featuring a smooth, nondescript back, while sporting a 13MP rear camera. It doesn't have a fingerprint scanner though, as it looks like it's reserved for more high-end OPPO units.

Nokia 8 Announced, True Nokia Flagship Featuring ZEISS Optics, IP54 Certification

August 17, 2017
HMD Global's off to a good start with their earlier announcement of the Nokia 5, 6, and 7 mid-range devices. But what will take the cake this year for them is definitely the much-anticipated Nokia 8.

The Nokia 8 is what the then Microsoft-led company should've produced, instead of the now virtually non-existent Windows Phone platform. It's the first smartphone from HMD Global to feature a ZEISS Optics collaboration on its camera, the first smartphone to support Dual Sight camera technology that allows both front and back cameras to simultaneously broadcast videos or images natively to social platforms such as Facebook and YouTube, and the first smartphone to support Nokia's OZO Audio, bringing you a immersive 360° audio experience to your videos.

Nokia 8 Announced, True Nokia Flagship Featuring ZEISS Optics, IP54 Certification

Hardware-wise, the Nokia 8 sports a Snapdragon 835 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of onboard storage (with up to 256GB external storage support). It also has a 3090mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support, NFC, and IP54 certification (splash-resistant certification). All of these are paired with a 5.3-inch QHD display, making the Nokia 8 a portable media flagship.

The Nokia 8's price is announced to be at €599 (around P36,000+ before taxes and other fees), but we're hoping that it won't debut at that price here in the Philippines.
