https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ejSY7SSAIso&t=1s I am not much of a techie guy, just a regular average user. I admit that to compare the 2, the ASUS Zenfone 3 Ultra and the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2016) would be like comparing apples and oranges: from screen size, to price point, the non-parallels are many to mention. But if I was stuck with these 2 phones with me on a certain situation, then there the comparison may be valid. Keeping both phones at my bag and taking them out one after the other, the Samsung was quick to unlock with just one hand. The ASUS was bigger so I had to be extra careful handling it. Most of the time, I used it with 2 hands. Both phones have a luxurious feel in the hand. The Samsung with glass panels both on the front and the back, and with the Asus uni-body metal back. Both phones…

Also, I have been used to phones being the size of my current phone, the Iphone 4s. So the first thing that came to mind while handling the ASUS ZENFONE 3 ULTRA was: “This thing is huge!” The Ultra was a luxurious thing to handle, but I was afraid to hold it in just one hand comfortably. I used it 2 handed, or I might drop it. I could not imagine myself talking through it as a phone, but oh man, I was already dreaming of watching YouTube videos and movies on it. The screen is 6.8 inches, perfect for handheld viewing. It has a very wide viewing angle, almost 180 degrees. A barkada of 10 can sit side by side and still…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZObtsDiyIM The Samsung Galaxy A7 2016, has very nice and sexy contoured glass panels on both front and back side. It feels great in the hand. Really amazing to the touch. It even gives you a somewhat nonslip grip if your hand is slightly moist. It has a stylish metal frame, which gives it a touch of luxury and elegance. For me, it is rally one sexy phone. I am not a gamer or a tech savvy person, just your regular average user. But I find the Samsung Galaxy A7 very quick and responsive. I tried playing some games and watching a few videos on it and I found the experience really nice. Not mindblowing but nice. No hiccups at all. What I really was fond of was the screen. The size was just ok at 5.5 inches but the resolution was superb. The clarity and colors were awesome. Games…

The Gadget Pilipinas Team was given access to a press briefing with Hidetaka Miyazaki, Director from From Software and a bit of hands-on gameplay. Here’s our take on the hands-on gameplay and the insights from the press interview. We also  figured a listicle is in order to rundown why this game will match the hype surrounding it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aW5nJDiaWf4 Here’s our Top 5 reasons why “Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice” is to die for. 1) The game is Tenchu-inspired If you’ve played any of the Tenchu games in previous game consoles, you know that the use of the grappling hook to set-up a one-slash-stealth kills from above is a hallmark of the series. Zipping to rooftops and treetops will be the go-to move in this game to get rid of sentries. And yes, those ever-so glorious decapitations and dismemberments with the stealth kill are present. 2) Casual or hardcore can play From…

Heads-up, Pro Evolution Soccer (PES) players. The PES game you’re playing on your phone is going to get a major upgrade. For starters, the visuals will get a major overhaul and will be using Unreal Engine 4 – the same graphics engine used in triple A games for consoles and PCs. With the use of Unreal Engine 4, PES will be inching closer to how it looks versus its console port. It Next, over 3,000 new animations, improved player AI with every playstyle accounted for, and realistic ball movements has been optimized for fans to enjoy the ultimate soccer game. And lastly, 10 new league licenses from Europe, South America and Asia have been added, including Japan’s J. League. The best part? Despite these updates,  Winning Eleven 2019 is still free-to-play (with in-game purchases). PES 2019 promises to give a life-like behavior of the beautiful game and should take competitive mobile…
