Any Android One users still out there? Once, it was the best bet for an affordable and hassle-free way to experience the latest version of Android on a smartphone. Now, you barely even hear about it anymore. But it’s not dead yet. If you somehow got a hold of and got to keep any of […]


The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was a fantastic piece of tech. It had all the best smartphone features available, including a number of exclusive Samsung extras. It’s also one of only a few high-end Android phones with built-in stylus support. And with the support of local carriers and local distribution channels, you didn’t even need […]


Facebook has updated its mobile app for both iOS and Android yet again, and this time there are a bunch of new features that should be a favorite among those who currently enjoy the “Stories” feature on Instagram as well as the “My Day” feature on Messenger. Facebook’s latest app update introduces Facebook Stories, an […]


Discounted ex-flagships are always something you should look out for. Don’t believe us? Just check out what’s happening with the OPPO F1 Plus over at Lazada. Recently, Lazada held a 5th birthday anniversary sale where a lot of items were heavily discounted–electronic or otherwise. OPPO, being one of the more prominent tech brands in the […]


The Asus Zenfone 3 Zoom is one of today’s most hotly-anticipated dual-camera smartphones, and for good reason. It’s set to marry the known reliability of the Asus Zenfone smartphone brand with the novelty of having a dual-camera setup on the back of a phone in lieu of what most of us probably grew up with. […]


After years and years of the smartphone’s evolution, it’s funny how one of the most-requested features is still a good built-in camera. Camera performance is, by far, still one of the easiest metrics to measure new smartphones with. If it has a good rear or front camera, chances are, you can reliably use it day […]


Competition on the mobile data landscape sure is tough, even though there’s only two real competitors in the ring. In an earlier report, we told you about Globe‘s plea to convince more people to get onboard its costly 4G LTE network and leave their old 3G devices behind. Globe also listed a number of handsets […]


Are you using an LTE-capable device? How about an LTE SIM? If you answered no to both of those questions, then Globe’s latest press release is aimed directly at you. At this point, LTE mobile data availability is in full swing, and you might be hard-pressed to find a mobile device that’s priced in the […]


There are companies that exist just to make money. Most of them do, actually. And while we can’t fault them for having those kinds of priorities, there are other companies out there who focus on real innovation and promoting life-changing applications of science and technology. Apparently, that’s the kind of company that Japan-based Epson aspires […]


Technology and art may be an odd couple, but when they work well together, it’s hard not to appreciate the finished product. That is why the recent win by Filino designer John Herrera at the London Fashion Week spells good news, for everyone.


While they did cut down on the number of available old iPads, Apple also announced something new. They now have a tablet model called simply the Apple iPad, with specs that don’t even really match old iPad mini 4. But it uses a bigger display and a newer processor, and it also has a lower […]


Apple used to sell two old iPad models alongside its newer iPad Pro models in a rather confusing effort to keep their customer’s options open. But as of this week, the Cupertino-based company has moved to cut those options down a notch, by fully discontinuing at least one iPad mini model while also making only […]


The iPhone SE getting updated internals–if only slightly–wasn’t the last of Apple’s activities for the month as far as its handset division is concerned. Updates were also issued for both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. And the changes are quite easy to notice.


About a year after it was first announced and released, the Apple iPhone SE has finally been updated. Now, the 16GB model is no more. The base model of the iPhone SE now comes with 32GB of internal storage. But it stays at the exact same price point as the original. Meanwhile, the 64GB model […]
