Why I want an OPPO F1s

OPPO F1s - Selfie Expert

I’ve heard a lot of good things about the OPPO F1s from blogger friends who attended the phone manufacturer’s events. Although satisfied with my current smartphones, I still can’t ignore the positive feedback. Curious to know what this new phone has that my 2 phones doesn’t, I checked out some reviews. Let me share with you why I want an OPPO F1s. Yep, the promise of 16MP front-facing camera is desirable, but I’m going beyond that. Don’t get me wrong. Of course, it’s great that OPPO F1s has a selfie cam with high megapixel count. But I’m not very much of a selfie guy. If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you may have noticed that there’s very few photos of me. When I’m looking for a smartphone I don’t just look at the camera.

So it was interesting to know that Plantronics is launching new products for the consumer market in the Philippines.

ASUS Zenfone 2 Laser 5.5S Reviewed

Having owned an ASUS Zenfone 2 Laser 5 and the 5.5 variant, I feel that I have already shared what I know of this ASUS smartphone line up. So it came as a challenge when I was asked to review the Zenfone 2 Laser 5.5S. Quite simply, it has the same feature with the rest of the Zenfone that I had, only bigger in capacity. It turned out that I was wrong. Simply put, bigger is better. As a blogger active in covering events and on social media, I take photos a lot. I would also do videos from time to time. Because of convenience, I used my smartphone almost always. In fact, my point and shoot camera has been hiding inside my drawers for a year or two already. Through the years I made sure that I have an SD card with large capacity inserted in my camera and/or ...
