In the last few years the Philippines have experienced a steady growth in its economy, this coincided with the boom of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) demands from US and Europe. These growths are at risk of being disrupted by developments in AI and Bots technology.
Appy Kids Play School series was launched in Virgin Megastores in October 2016. We were lucky to be part of this launch as we had the chance to see the app in action!
This is my review of the device dubbed as a “Flagship Killer” the Oneplus 3
What is Oneplus?
According their website, “It all started in the winter of 2013 with a simple, bold idea: make a better phone“.
If you think the title grammatically wrong, Google the term I’m a PC.
I was exposed to IT at a young age, starting from good old Nintendo Game and Watch to Atari, Family Computer and Brick games.
As many of you already know, we went to Switzerland last year. When we decided to go there I have only one place in mind that I have to go to. Any geeks like me would want to go to CERN.
From the title of this post, you may have guessed that its a bit techie, well, you’re not wrong. I will try to narrate my experience in refurbishing my computer in less techie way.
So I have an old desktop. Many would say why not just get a new one? This PC happens to be one that I built on my own back when building PCs was more than just a hobby for me. Other than that, it still serves the purpose.
I was first introduced to smart phones when I attended a Microsoft user conference a long, long time ago. The moment I saw the demo I said to myself this is the future of computing and indeed it was.
My first smart phone was an I-mate SP2 which was a gift from S, up until now she’s been looking out for the same expression that she saw in me when I saw her gift. Well, as they say, you never forget your first.
It’s a cool app for children from 2 – 5 years old. With this app, they can learn new words, how to count, learn about colors. They also have puzzles!
– That it has different languages. Blake now recognizes colors in Spanish.
– It’s colorful and easy to use. Great for toddlers!
– Maybe it can be more interactive. I noticed that Blake finds the game repetitive (maybe too much) and she loses focus.
First things first, I love my iPhone. I am more familiar with iOS than Android. I wasn’t sure I would enjoy Vibe Z. I was wrong.
Vibe Z is very thin and light. It weighs only 147 grams. It’s heavier than my iPhone but it has a bigger screen (The 5.5-inch (1920 x 1080) IPS touch screen). I am not a very techie person and I will not pretend I know all of these techie stuff so here’s where you go for the specs: Lenovo.com
What did I like most about the Vibe? It’s camera, of course!! I don’t know about you, but being a blogger means you have to be always ready with a camera. You have to be ready to upload interesting stuff all the time. That’s why I love smartphones. I can easily share photos without having to carry a big bulky DSLR.
Anyhoo, Lenovo Vibe Z has 13MP rear camera and 5MP, wide angle lens front camera. FIVE MEGAPIXELS compared to my 1.2 MP iPhone front camera. That’s why Vibe Z is dubbed as the “Selfie Smartphone”. And tell me, who hasn’t done a selfie nowadays??
Here are some photos taken from the Vibe Z:
This was taken on the boat going to Paradise Resort in Samal Island, Philippines. Used the front camera, not bad, right?!!
This was taken somewhere in South Cotobato on our way back to Davao. This is not bad considering I was on a moving vehicle when the photo was taken. Rear camera.
And of course, another selfie with the sis. (Excuse the goofy face)
I no longer mind that its and Android phone. It has almost everything I need. Apps-wise, its all the same. I used cloud based apps to store most of my photos since I only have 16 gb. (Unfortunately, the Vibe Z doesn’t have the option to extend capacity). Connectivity is amazeballs with 4G LTE.
Everytime I use my other phone, I miss the huge screen of Vibe Z. It’s very easy on the eyes. I now hate that I have to squint when using my other phone. LOLS.
