Nokia + Android: Grand school season comeback for a classic smartphone carrier Filipinos love

by Edsel O. Lorete / http://inslashout.wordpress.com / http://inslashout.blog.com

Nokia is making a big splash returning to a smartphone market, including the Philippines, it once reigned. Taking a smart spin with Android operating system, and with public clamor rising since the surprise re-biirth of the classic feature phone Nokia 3310, Nokia, which is now under new management, a younger organization willing to share Nokia’s feature with the pop Android technology. It is good news for those, again including Filipinos, who cannot deny the quality manufacturing Nokia has been known to extend to its feature devices – and now enter Nokia’s first range of Android devices. 

Leading that pack, which was the right launching path Nokia took for direct market awareness, the Nokia 3310 returns with improved features – including a clearer camera, colored screen and who could forget the game snake. Improvements, which is still color fancy, and it will attract at first glimpse, the Nokia 3310 takes off with fancier body design that is far more lighter than its original design. 

While Nokia fans has been on a debate path with millenials questioning the relevance of a feature phone, let us not deny that fact feature phones, particularly Nokia, has a solid following who would not hesitate buy one not for novelty, but because Nokia makes a very good feature phone with lengthy battery. It lasts longer than any feature phone there was, and it is truly a reliable mobile phone for communication. That part of Nokia’s design is solid clear with whoever bought a Nokia one time in their lives, and I can tell you some people still have their 3310 in the works. So much for that Nokia invested with Android, and that partnership entails regular software updates, that gave birth to the Nokia 3, 5 and 6. 

The Nokia 6, if you follow Nokia’s marketing path, offers the highest Android processing specs available. Would I buy a Nokia? It is a simple yes because I know I am getting not just good business to lifestyle design, but a formidable engine detailed to last throughout part of everybody else’s multitasking lifeline. Designed with what Nokia calls a clean and clutter free Andoid operating system the Nokia 6 takes off with a mean Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset, 3GB RAM and 32GB storage with MicroSD. It is a fine pair for mobile gamers seeking stall free action on a smartphone with a 5.5 inch Full HD and Gorilla glass screen. Rear camera improves with 16MP camera while front settles with a stellar 8MP specifics. Music is theaterlike from all sense’s side with Dolby features that relatively useful when watching movies. Nokia 5 gets the more sleek curve compact design. 

Screen gets same Gorilla glass take but its precision (3D CNC Huan) for greater durability. It is a seamless body but screen settles with 5.2 inch Full HD screen. Back and front camera takes the 13MP and 8MP but photo quality reminishes with publication standard settings of the Lumia series. Processing engine similarly details with Snapdragon 430 chipset ideal for lengthy wireless multitasking. Storage settles with smaller 16GB capacity (MicroSD expandable to 128GB) and a 2GB RAM. Is an everyday Android smartphone for thrill seekers mixing business into things like adrenaline sports. Budget yet trendy smartphone social networkers will have a field day with Nokia 3. It settles with a crystal clear Gorilla glass 5 inch Full HD display. Body frame is made of aluminum and polycarbonate body – keeping it sturdy and protected against pocket bumps. Back camera settles with 8MP camera. 

Printing standards for publication ready images is only 5MP. An 8MP camera fix can do more to brighten those fancy raw photos with care to color and clarity specifics that is perfect for social networking uploads. Storage get standard 16GB with 2GB RAM and feature includes NFC and gryroscope. All three Nokia Android smartphone’s data details with 4G LTE specs, and while adopting a middle portion placed back camera wih standard flash. Nokia 3 and 5’s security details with number dotted security but Nokia 6 ups with fingerprint scanner. 

While it is a bit for Nokia to follow on Android’s smartphone software trail the hmd, which now handles the management of the new Nokia branding, is confident with Nokia’s household personality will eventually take among the competing leading brands in a few year’s time. Nokia 3,5 and 6 and the revived Nokia 3310 feture cellular phone are expected to hit the Philippine smartphone market starting end of June 2017. 

Transformer sequel for fans to thrill their weekend time 

Review: Transformers: The Last Knight (Sci-Fi / Fantasy / Action)

Cast: Mark Wahlbergh, Isabel Moner, Anthony Hopkins, John Turturro, Josh Duhamel, Jerod Carmichael, and Peter Cullen

Director: Michael Bay

Michael Bay finally directs the latest, and not rxactly the final, sequel to the Transformers saga between sophisticated robot race – one good and the other evil. We all know the story behind Megatron and Optimus Prime’s inter galactic conflict that eventually settled on planet Earth. It is not a bad thing watching, ot with Bay taking the director seat for another steaming digital robotic round. Having said that would tell you are in for a grand action packed weekend movie. Mark Wahlbergh, his fast mouth talking macho comic personality, is back to thril with a familiar plot kicks we have miissed watching from the original Transformers movie. Take storyline at face value, making it easier to free,y understand where Bay is taking the transformer clan for another dirty round of ring fights. It is a tough act that began where previous lean much on Optimus’ prevailing monologue. Character call shifts to Wahlbegh with a younger casting basically weighing frame time on a younger and feverishly typecasting millenial viewiership. It is a grand tease reaching out to a digital leaning market taking their movie entertainment from a multitasking digital tablet. It may not sit well with Transformers adult fans but it does make a fresh link to your children’s wandering interest for digital entertainment. Transformers: The Last Knight takes cue from where the last chapter fizzled with Earth threatening to collide with another alient planet. It is a long crusade with wild hints on ancient England – King Arthur and Merlin the famed sorcerer. It suggest a link to a comic element that would ultimately source out a grand clash between the autobots and Megatron. The Last Knight brings to light Transformers original characters with Anthony Hopkins taking much of chapter’s mystery talks. It is not a bad thing when it carry film to its grand clash of planet ending. Bay directed The Last Knight for audience to have fun ride into the Tranformer spectacle tst resonated with fans originally when the intelligent robots took residency on Earth. Transformers: The Last Knight aims to please fans more than a cascading storyline tailing out for a blockbuster ending….soon! 

Fast Internet in the Philippines begins with telco Smart, Globe Telecom offering fastest free 4G 

by Edsel Thadeus O. Lorete / http://inslashout.wordpress.com / http://inslashout.blog.com

Fast internet is here! You heard it right! The 4G or LTE speed internet Phiippine President Rodrigo Duterte promised the day he was sworn into office in June of 2016, with the cooperation of the country’s biggest telecommunication groups PLDT-Smart and Globe Telecom, fast internet became a reality. Launched at the height of the Independence Day 2017 celebrations, the “publicly free” 4G LTE connectivity, and you can choose either taking Smart or Globe Telecom, hit mainstream public riding the MRT daily from North Edsa in Quezon City to Taft Avenue in Pasay City.  
The MRT, which commutes some 500,000 passengers daily, was made to experience cap free 4G internet with running speeds hitting 170 Mbps for downloads and uploads. It is a welcome initiative from the DICT, which spearheaded the Shaw MRT station launch last Independence Day, but just for experience INSLASHOUT gave the free internet a go travelling point-to-point 45 minutes MRT line from North to Taft Avenue across EDSA.
Free internet, which is openly available to public accessing from Wi-Fi either Smart or Globe Wi-Fi, offered faster data signal that even vehicular commuters down EDSA could catch and ejoy browsing time with ease. It is a log on process that entails choosing to log with Smart or Globe’s 4G Wi-Fi. Either way, and you can tell from people using either telco’s signal, you can actually stream videos or send videos without fuss. Our experience started with two smartphones hooked in real time just to see signal difference. 
Logging by the way, and it applies for either telcos, was done in less than 2 seconds. It was generally smooth sailing. We rode the MRT, timed our usual morning rush ends meet, and turned on four items people normally lean on while waiting for their station to turn up. I logged on to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and then I opened YouTube to stream current videos in demand. In between, with multitasking in mind, I opened my e-mail sending raw images. It was a smooth sail, roughly eiufgly ten seconds sending or downloading. FB Messenger, which I usually check for updates from clients, was on throughout the ride. 
Given the number of commuters on-line, and fairly using the same two free internet service sources I was hooked on from MRT North station, the Independence Day speed test that originally showed between 170 to 200mbps mbps timed shared Wi-Fi speeds clocking 50 to 160Mbps. It is way faster to the previous 3Mbps drill that was only good for Facebook checking, no photos visible. Staking on higher data (thru Wi-Fi) we downloaded videos, live streamed contents and speeds noticeably remained solid within station boundaries. It means broadband remains generally limited to MRT’s 14 stations. 
Wi-Fi experience includes stalls, but this happens only in between station’s reach. Videos, despite gap stalls experienced, would delightfully seed pixel free contents for apps that deliver things like cable TV. It is similar for HD contents like movie trailers (you can save fast for off line viewing) streaming on YouTube. Sending e-mail, which usually hangs with a stingy screen buffer, was sweetly swift even for attached images or documentation and minuter HD videos set for blogging. 
It is a great improvement people rushing (and multitasking) for work can take advantage to communicate ideas or data before reaching their scheduled business meetings. It is a welcome experience for blogging, which requires a certain amount of bandwidth reach to upload say a three minute standard edited videos. Signal boost reached its all time high in the SM Megamall area for Globe and Smart. 
If there is any quantified signal fluctuation it has to be associated with influx of people taking service, entering the train coach already on Wi-Fi. Buendia MRT tunnel still stall phone calls, social networking and Wi-Fi. It is a five minute stall that winnigly resumes internet access on purpose. Smartphone set Wi-Fis, compared to postpaid data, does not eat up so much phone’s renewable battery. 
It means longer time spent on-line, great for people doing some rush work requiring data access. It is a welcome solution for people social networking on a perfectly traffic Monday rush. Data interruption is imminent enterting Buendia tunnel. Signal makes a swift 4G jumpstart after reaching Buendia platform. Tunnel needs rhouter to keep internet signal healthy for commuting passengers moving with train. If you are a Globe subscriber you can log on free Wi-Fi internet with #Globe_EDSAWiFi while for Smart it is #SmartWi0Fi @MRT EDSA. 
When train hit Mrt Taft Avenue, and the signal for either Globe and Smartphone was consistently strong two blocks from station, I was able to download two TV segments from YouTube and ten songs on-line from third party app. Smart and Globe’s 4G signal, based on our experience, was consistent despite signal cut throughout EDSA. Smart and Globe, with DICT collaboration, is offering Filipino commuters a modern way to communicate with their mobile devices locally and internationally. 
It is a remarkable digital experience comparable to my travel experience in Japan, China and Macau – where internet data is generally accessible for public advantage. It could open up new markets that could trend with transport and communication for millenials looking for viable and cool business options that rely more on what their smartphones can provide on a daily basis. 
People travelling EDSA to their end to end work points can do so much on-line while in traffic. It is a welcome means to get something productive done with available free Wi-Fi while stuck on traffic, before you hit office or school mode daily. 
It means that whatver stalled time a person endures while on traffic in EDSA can now be converted to productive family or work time. Imagine being able to reach home or office with all your homework, office chores done from your on-line computer or smartphone?
 It is welcome initiative from the government, more so from telcos Globe and PLDT Smart for sharing the wealth of their broadband to enhance human productivity in times and places that normally stall work time on a daily basis.

Here is the story fresh out of Vivo’s smartphone factory….
Even in a world that is fixated on constant innovation, high-quality smartphones need not come at a hefty price. This is what top five premium global brand1 Vivo seems to proclaim as it launches the Y55s—the newest phone in its Y-series.
Given its premium features and specifications, the Y55s—for just P8,990—is undoubtedly the best smartphone deal in its price range. 
To begin with, the Y55s brandishes a 13-megapixel rear camera, a significant improvement on the 8-megapixel rear camera of its predecessor, the Y55. Complemented by a 5-megapixel front camera, the impressive rear camera assures selfie enthusiasts of nothing less than crystal clear pictures anytime.
The Y55s is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 Quad-core 1.4GHz CPU with a 3GB RAM and 16GB ROM, and runs on a personalized Funtouch OS 3.0 based on Android 6.0 that brings amazing speed and smooth user experience. 
The Y55s also boasts a feature called the Smart Light Sensor, which detects lighting conditions and adjusts screen brightness accordingly. This, in turn, makes your face look more vibrant and clearer when taking selfies in any lighting condition. 
On top of its notable camera specs and features, the Y55s brings Vivo’s design aesthetic into the picture with its sleek silhouette, its 2.5D glass front merging seamlessly with its unibody cover and making it easy to grip.
For flexibility, the Y55s has three card slots—two of them support an Internet speed of up to 150 Mbps, while the third slot supports up to 256 GB of external memory. This gives users more storage room and sufficient backup for their favorite photos, videos, and music.
The Y55s likewise aids multitasking professionals with the new and updated Smart Split 2.0 technology, a feature that allows them to split the screen in two, like when replying to a message while watching a video. 
The smartphone currently supports video streaming, Facebook, Messages, WeChat, Whatsapp, YouTube, Video, Play Movies & TV and VLC for Android, with more coming soon.
Last but not the least, for those who are inclined to read e-books and watch movies on their phones, the Y55s has an eye protection mode that filters out blue light to prevent eye strain.

A father’s love exceeds all boundaries. From teaching his son how to ride his first bike, to walking his daughter down the aisle, words simply cannot describe the emotions that run through a dad when it comes to caring for his family.

 

As father’s day weekend approaches, how can we show our appreciation to someone who has sacrificed so much for us? They say that the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, so Goldilocks may have the perfect answer.

 

To celebrate Father’s Day, the country’s number one bakeshop is proud to roll out two new cakes for this special occasion: the Goldilocks Chocolate Tres Leches, and the Limited Edition Father’s Day Cake.

 

The Tres Leches Cake is a triple chocolate layered masterpiece which is then elegantly decorated with fluffy chocolate whipped cream, light chocolate ganache, crunchy chocolate sprinkles, intricately placed chocolate rosettes, and is finished off with delightful choco-toppers.

 

On the other hand, the Goldilocks Limited Edition Father’s Day Cake is a delicious Vanilla flavored creation composed of a sweet vanilla base, and is then topped off with a creative “Happy Father’s Day” message, which is the perfect way to show your Dad how special he is to you.
