The most forward-thinking smartphone and the most colorful iPhone yet are finally available at Smart stores nationwide. Smart stores are filled with availers of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c a day after Smart’s simple launched the 2 phones at Powerbook BGC 3 weeks ago.

According to Smart Postpaid head, Kathy Carag, “The new iPhone 5s and 5c are such crowd-drawers because of their innovative features and the diverse characters and lifestyles they represent – from the savvy businessman to the hip and cool student.”

Carag adds that the growing popularity of LTE devices has also made people realize the importance of a reliable network in optimizing the features of the new iPhones.

“Aside from offering many affordable plans that make the new iPhones available to many, Smart, through its widest LTE coverage in the country, also delivers the fast and reliable network performance that the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c need to maximize their use. Smart is simply the smart choice for these new iPhones,” Carag said.

Some celebs and bloggers proved Carag right because they too availed the latest iPhone from the Smart Communications. A number of celebrities squeezed time into their hectic schedule and headed to the nearest Smart store to get hold of their new handsets.

Rapper and actor Elmo Magalona went to the Smart store in Rockwell to pick up his spanking new iPhone 5s.

“I’ve always liked the portability of iPhone and its user-friendliness,” said Magalona, who admitted to be a heavy user of Twitter, Instagram, Snapseed and other photo apps during downtime in recording sessions and taping for shows.

“I got my unit at Smart because its LTE delivers. It’s just efficient. Now that I have my new iPhone, my old one’s going to my sister.”

On the other hand, DLSU Green Archer Thomas Torres was among the first to get his brand new iPhone5s at the Smart store in Robinson’s Magnolia.

“I’ve always been an Apple fan so I’m among those who just couldn’t wait to use the new iPhone,” said Torres, who also considers himself a heavy user of social apps.

“I use Twitter, Facebook and Instagram quite a lot, and to be constantly engaged, I need a trusty LTE connection. Smart gives me that,” he added.

Not to be left behind, the coolest guys on the airwaves, Boys Night Out DJs Sam YG and Tony Toni, also headed to the Smart store on the first day the new iPhones became available.

“We go around the country a lot to tour, and that’s when we appreciate Smart’s widest network coverage,” said Sam YG. “With Smart, I don’t have to worry about connection anywhere I go.”

“Even if you have the best smartphone, you have no use for it if you’re not on a reliable network,” shared Tony Toni. “With Smart, the iPhone functions like a smartphone as it should.”

Fashion blogger Camille Co also went to the Smart store in Rockwell to get hold of her new iPhone.

“As a blogger, I’m very dependent on high-speed mobile connection to stay connected and keep my followers updated,” shared Co. “With Smart’s LTE, I don’t have to worry about that at all.”

Like Co, fashion blogger Patricia Prieto got her new iPhone 5c from Smart. “Smart gives me the mobility and flexibility I need as a blogger who needs constant connection to several social media platforms,” she said.

Also heavy users of social media, fashion bloggers and sister duo Vern and Vernice Enciso echo what their peers say about Smart. “We got our iPhone 5c from Smart because it is simply efficient,” said Vern. “With Smart, we get what we need, which is fast, reliable connection.”

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter.

Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic.

Check them out and drool.
