We went to Japan a couple of weeks ago. Of course, like we usually do whenever we travel, we brought with us two of the best flagship smartphones in the market nowadays – the Huawei P20 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S9. Huawei P20 Pro is the highest rated smartphone when it comes to camera quality based on DxO Mark. This is followed by Samsung Galaxy S9! We snapped some photos using the 2 smartphones in various settings and checked which ones produced the best output. We are not professional photographers, but having reviewed tons of smartphones in the past, we’ve grown to understand which photo produced the right contrast, saturation, vibrance, color accuracy, etc. If you’re looking to buy one of these 2 products, we highly encourage you to take this quiz to help identify the kind of photo output you prefer. Now that you’re done with the quiz, why…

Got one of those Samsung flagship phones?  Well, you’d be pleased that Samsung toyed with the Always On Display (AOD) so that you have more excuses to look at that gorgeous screen. While you could always add any image to your Always On Display while displaying the date, time and any notifications,  Samsung thought they’ll make it more awesome by enabling you to install GIFs. Version 3.2.26.4 of the app enables you to set any GIF to  your AOD by opening the GIF in the Gallery app and selecting the overflow menu (…), then tapping “Set as Always on Display image”.  However, GIFs do come in various lengths and if the application detects that what you’ve picked is too long, it’ll prompt you to trim it down. Also, the GIFs only animate once upon locking the display. It then locks to one frame after the GIF cycle is done. The…

It’s that time of the year again when smartphone makers go head to head in one convention. Today, two of the most anticipated devices at MWC have finally been revealed. Behold, Samsung’s newest crown jewels, the Galaxy S9 and S9+.

Still, nothing beats the real news, right? Curved Super AMOLED Displays As with their latest devices, the S9 and S9+ are both equipped with 18.5:9 Displays with  WQHD+ resolution similar to the Note 8, with the curved glass meeting the rear panel in a seamless and flowing design.  The S9 at 5.8-inches, and the S9+ with 6.2-inches of real-estate.

With the imminent launch of the next Galaxy, which is of course, the S9 (and S9+?), Samsung is inviting everyone to register to watch its Unpacked event this February 26, 1 AM local time, at MWC in Barcelona via live stream. Samsung says that the event is “set to change the way you see the world, as it reveals the re-imagined camera.” This suggests that the upcoming device(s) may have something else up their sleeves apart from most likely sporting improved dual camera systems. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are expected to be equipped with nothing but top-of the line components – the Snapdragon 845, 4GB to 6GB of RAM, Samsung’s signature Infinity Displays with at least FHD+ resolution, and Android Oreo. You still have until tomorrow, December 22 to register. A few lucky participants will also win an exclusive invite to the Galaxy Media event happening in March. To register,…

The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9+ has been spotted in AnTuTu’s database. The phone (named SM-G9650) is powered by a Snapdragon 845 chip, and has 6GB of RAM, that’s more than that of its Exynos counterpart which only has 4GB. Apart from that, everything else is as expected – an 18:9 display (possibly Quad HD), Android Oreo, and 64GB of storage. Of course, it’s most likely that it’ll sport dual cameras. In any case, there’s only a few weeks left before the big reveal on February 25, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. As always, we’ll keep you updated! Source

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…
