Priced for only PhP1,699, Cloudfone Go Connect Lite 2 introduces the enhancements and benefits you can get from Android Go (Oreo 8.0) without breaking the bank. These smartphones do not just fit well on the pocket, but also with the budget.  This may not be the phone that can let you PUBG Mobile, but it can let you play games that optimized for low-end phones like Alto Adventures, Samurai II: Vengeance and Facebook Instant Games (Yeah, remember that fishing game that your titos are very addicted to?). You can also enjoy watching videos on YouTube to your heart’s content or for as long as you have data allocation.

It was not a long time ago when we posted our review of the OPPO F7. The OPPO F7 is definitely a phone to look out for in its price range. It offers a ton of improvements in many aspects over its predecessor – from its new design to a significant improvement in performance; to the refined cameras; and, the new features included in the software. The OPPO F7 is still quite rough in some of the edges though – the software needs further optimization, camera focusing speed, as well as raw shooting speed is in need of some re-work. I also wished that they’d already move on to a Type-C port, and the absence of an LED notification light, is just plain mystifying, for a feature that’s very basic, but is also very essential. OPPO has made a huge leap here. And if they can address at least some of…

Every now and then, we come across with headphones that are positioned primarily for gamers. Logitech, Corsair, HyperX,  Sennheiser and ASUS Republic of Gamers have been pretty successful in establishing their gaming headphones to their target consumers. Who is 1More? A relatively new brand, 1More, has been trying to take a piece of the pie, and has been pretty successful in doing so. For the uninitiated, 1More is a brand that’s closely related to a much bigger brand, Xiaomi. In 2014, 3 former Foxconn executives founded the audio company to challenge Apple Inc.’s audio unit, Beats Electronics LLC. Thanks to a huge chunk of investment from Xiaomi Corp. 4 years later, the brand officially arrived in the Philippines thru Quantum Mobile Gears. 1More Spearhead VR is one of the new products that they introduced this year at CES. It isn’t shy of features geared for gamers, and has everything it takes…

Power banks usually don’t look special. The same thing goes with clip-on car mounts! Time and again, brands have been trying to improve the designs of power banks, and even tried adding a few quirks and special features to upscale its attractiveness level. One of the brands that try to innovate and pump the features of their products is Baseus, a Chinese brand of cases and power banks in the  Philippines. They recently forged a retail partnership with Digits Trading to make their slew of products available in the country. Not Your Ordinary Power Bank I own and keep 8 power banks. I’ve got portable power juices from Tronsmart, Pyxis, Anker, ASUS and Xiaomi, to name a few. Among all the ones I’ve got, the charger from Baseus stands out for a lot of reasons.

OPPO has always tried its best to be significant in the industry. In the local scene, the company has been getting attention by consumers in the midrange smartphone category. They mainly share the same space with ASUS, VIVO and Huawei. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oKk7lSLxJQ&feature=youtu.be This was not the case 4 years ago. In 2014, OPPO launched Find 7 and it was – in many ways – ahead of its time. At a relatively considerable price, it has monstrous camera sensor, stacked with powerful specs and VOOC technology. Unfortunately, it was the last time we saw OPPO’s Find series in the Philippines until this July 2018 when they launched Find X in the country. It is a timely event as OPPO celebrates its 4th year anniversary in the Philippines. OPPO Find X is a fusion of tech and art. The manner of how OPPO is communicating it to its customers is similar to how…

In a country where PC and laptop brands like ASUS, Acer and MSI are wildly prominent, another brand is positive on bringing their innovative line of laptops in the Philippines. Known for their Mate, P-series and Nova smartphone series, Huawei is posed to bring their Huawei Matebook series to the Philippines and Vietnam this year, as confirmed by Jim Xu, President of Huawei Consumer Business Group. Apart from the goal of bringing more premium products in both countries, Xu did not give further details about the actual launch date of Huawei’s laptops although he mentioned that it will be sometime in July 2018.

As for the pricing when it was launched 4 months ago, the lower spec variant (i5/8GB/256GB) is at  €1499 (around P96,000) while the top…

Difficult, unforgiving yet satisfying to play! This is Frostpunk in general.

Developed by the company behind popular tower defense game Anomaly Defender,  and post-war survival game This War of Mine, Frostpunk is 11 bit studios’ unique take on city-building and survival genre.

Here are 5 reasons why you should get this game! It’s too damn challenging! This isn’t Cities Skylines. If you think that Cities Skylines or Sim City is challenging enough, you’ve got to…

Popular rogue-lite metroidvania game, Dead Cells, just got a new update this June 6, 2018. Dubbed as Babel Update, the latter pushed a new language support for Italian, German, Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, Korean and Traditional Chinese. Apart from additional language support, the new game also pushed cosmetic changes to the game – 2 of which were actually based on community suggestion: The hero wears a classy red scarf that follows all its movements. Now you can pretend you’re a ninja! All bows and crossbows received new skins! Another update was also pushed which adds pink balloons to the Barnacle (ceiling turret). The balloons will float mid-air if there is no attach point available. This, in effect, nerfs the damage caused by the turret. If you’re on Discord, the update now supports the voice-chat application’s Rich Presence. Additional bug fixes include: Anonymised error reports and stats sent to our servers Fixed…

Could this really be the ROG Phone we’ve been waiting for? We’ve got plenty of reasons to believe that ASUS Republic of Gamers is launching a phone this June 4, 2018 at Computex Taiwan. Jerry Shen and other ASUS executives hinted about this last April, and it seems that even ASUS can’t help but give everyone a teaser that hyped us up. Here’s an image hotspot that you can check out. Click the bubbles for details. Our predictions: SNAPDRAGON 845: The phone is likely to rock the latest Snapdragon 845, which also powers the ASUS Zenfone 5z. The latter will be available this June 2018 in the Philippines, so there’s a chance that the ROG phone might be available later this year. 18:9 or 19:9 display: There’s no point of going back to 16:9 or 4:3, unless ASUS wants to be labeled as “outdated”. ASUS latest smartphone lineup already sports…

Just when you thought that game developers are done creating battle royale games, ex-S.T.A.L.K.E.R devs, Vostok Games, just dropped an announcement about their latest title, Fear the Wolves. Yes, expect the game to be a mashup of your favorite battle royale games and S.T.A.L.K.E.R.-like environment. Winning the game isn’t just about getting into the top spot. When you get dropped to the radiation-savaged Chernobyl, you will also encounter deadly anomalies and dynamically-changing weather.

More information will be announced this upcoming E3 2018. According to Focus, Fear the Wolves will come to the PC in 2018, and later in consoles. Expect the Early Access to be available this summer on PC. We can’t wait to see it, and try…

Today, ASUS has confirmed what a lot of fans have been eagerly waiting for – the local launch of the Zenfone Max Pro M1.

The Zenfone Max Pro M1 will be available in 3GB and 4GB variants, both with the mid-range Snapdragon 636 under the hood. Yes, that’s the same chip that powers the Zenfone 5. Whether the phone will also have AI-enhanced features is still a question. The device sports a 6-inch FHD+ display that sticks to an 18:9 aspect ratio, so yes, no notch here. We might be looking at 32GB and 64GB of storage, expandable with a microSD card. For optics, the Zenfone Max Pro M1 has a 13MP/16MP + 5MP rear camera system, the later used for depth-sensing. It…
