Apple’s new iPhone 6S might look the same as last year’s model but there are lots more on the inside that might convince fans to grab the latest one like 3D Touch and better front and rear camera. Apple did not stop there and introduced a totally new Rose Gold color as well.
The Zenfone 2 Deluxe is a testament that the company can still push the envelope and deliver better performance than the ZE551ML which is already a solid performer. With a more attractive look thanks to its unique back cover and storage space that will give you freedom from worrying whether you have memory left, the Deluxe is a great handset to have around and will no doubt handle the tasks you throw its way.
With the PHAB Plus, Lenovo tries to solve a problem for a consumer who wants to experience the best of both worlds in a single device. The PHAB Plus looks and works just like a regular smartphone yet has a display large enough to be accepted as a tablet, and it’s good in playing both roles, too.
The iON Air Pro 3 is a decent action camera to have around — it shoots videos with vibrant and crisp images, has a tough housing, and (in our opinion) looks more “action ready” than the GoPro’s square form factor.
The MAIA Smart Tab is a really enjoyable and modest companion that doesn’t ask much. For Php4,999 you now have a device that runs Windows for the times you need to get some work done, and Android for when you need to take a break and play.
With its big display, great selfie camera and wide connectivity suite, the Xperia C5 Ultra is one of the decent phablets in the market today. Although, its price tag of Php 17,990 is not that attractive. If Sony could just lower its prices, especially when they now use MediaTek processors, maybe they can sell more smartphones.
The Starmobile Knight Elite exudes some of the best qualities of a phone that users are looking for – good display and performance, dual-SIM with LTE connectivity, and a nice build and design. For Php9,990, the Knight Elite won’t break the bank for users who are looking the features mentioned.
The Xperia M4 Aqua is a good choice for those who are looking for a smartphone that packs a punch but not heavy in the pockets. It has a good display, performance and camera, nice build and design, IP-certified body, and a decent battery life.
Vicovations’s Vico-Marcus 4 is one dashboard camera that gives good concentration towards picture quality but doesn’t fall short on what it’s made for. Its 160-degree wide-angle lens combined with the 21:9 ratio gives off details that reveal more than what other cameras could show.
The ZenPad S 8.0 is, without a doubt, the best and more beautiful yet affordable Android tablet Asus has ever made even beating the ones they made for the Google Nexus program in terms of design and performance.
The Western Digital My Cloud Mirror (Gen 2) proves to be a very useful and effective device for those who need to manage tons of files. For casual users, it liberates you from depending on an external hard drive and takes the load off smartphones and tablets with limited internal storage. Heavy users like photographers, graphic artists, and video producers can take advantage of features like automatic file backup, password protection, and multiple storage modes.
