Rumored specs for the flagship phone include Snapdragon 845 SoC, Dual rear camera setup (18MP + 12MP), 13MP front shooter, 6GB RAM, 64GB/128GB storage options 3,420mAh battery.

Look and Capacity – these two words for me clearly depicts O+ 8.52 amidst the countless android Smartphones that are hitting the market nowadays. Your Php5,999 could get you this good-looking device that is packed with efficient features and performs up to snuff. Here are some insights on O+ 8.52 from a consumer’s perspective. LOOK At a glance, the device has a classy look for its price. It is mainly touch-screen and has only 3 capacitive buttons which gives more space for visual display. Back cover is matte finished so it’s free from scratches and can remain neatly. I find it handy as well, just enough width that can be grasped easily by one hand. CAPACITY Performance wise, this phone is a clever device for the standard uses of a Smartphone. Common games such as Candy Crush run well, even those with tilting requirements like Temple Run. I tried to…

It was last 1999 when I first used an Alcatel phone. I was in third year high school then. I forgot the phone model but it was an orange bulky safeguard-soap-shape like phone, probably one of the largest phones at that time. But of course that is already one of the high end phones during then and only a few have GSM phones. And now, I am using an Alcatel phone but this time I am using the thinnest smartphone in the market—the Alcatel One Touch Idol ULTRA 6033. Let’s take a look at this new phone from ALCATEL. After being out of the mainstream in the past few years, Alcatel made a big come back with their Alcatel One Touch Series phones. I am really excited to try it and to see for myself what Alcatel is really up to right now. Unboxing The box is made of hard…

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. And, this just in, here’s the story trailer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TuAM-b7m3iw
