Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 Review

Technology
Huawei is bolstering its budget offerings in 2019 with the introduction of the Huawei Y6 Pro 2019. It has a large 6.09-inch Dewdrop display, a quad-core chipset, Android 9 Pie, and a price tag of under PHP 7K. Can Huawei heat up the entry-level segment with this phone? Find out in our review. Before we proceed, you may watch our unboxing video below: Design and Construction The Huawei Y6 Pro 2019 is basically the successor of the Y6 2018. As a new device, it comes with design improvements which include the Dewdrop screen. It’s basically a tiny notch design implemented on top of the 6.09-inch display. I find the bezels thick but not really a serious issue. Going back to the notch, it houses 8MP camera. Placed above it in the bezel are the earpiece, sensors, LED flash, and LED for n...

Huawei Nova 4 Review

Technology
Huawei‘s newest mid-range phone arrived in China. It’s called the Nova 4 with an all-screen display and a new design to boot. Does the beauty run skin deep and is deemed worthy for a successor? Here’s our full review. Design and Construction If you’ve seen the Nova 3, then the new Nova 4 sports the very same aesthetic, save for noticeable design changes. Huawei got rid of the notch, and it’s now an all-screen with a cut-out hole at the top-left corner for the 25-megapixel front camera. No call speaker grill here, if you see it from this view. If you’re not down with a hole on your screen, there’s an option to hide it via the settings menu. The device’s front panel is still a bit flat and is assisted by the arched metal sides and curved glas

ASUS ZenFone Max M2 Review

Technology
ASUS has been continuously improving their smartphones, especially with their ZenFone Max devices. The ZenFone Max M2, which just launched this month, is actually a testament to this improvement in terms of overall performance and pricing. I had a good amount of time testing this phone so it’s time for a full review! Let’s start!  Before we begin, check out our unboxing and hands-on video here: Design and Construction The ZenFone Max M2 is pretty much similar with the Max Pro M2 but without the glossy back. It comes with an aluminum unibody design with a matte finish which looks stylish and premium thanks to its blue color which is my color bias by the way. Unlike with the Max M1, the Max M2 now comes with a notch design to follow the trend last year (2018). The front feature

Honor 10 Lite In-depth Hands-on

Technology
Even when you’re under a tight budget, as much as possible you still strive to get the best value for your money. And today, it might just be the gleaming Honor 10 Lite. Just a few days more and we’ll officially know how much it will really cost, but basing from it’s China price tag, it might come in the Philippines with a 9-12k price—which is not bad at all. It’s a more affordable sibling of the Honor 10 with some expected scaled-down specs and ergonomics, but we didn’t expect the results we got. Let’s find out how “lite” this smartphone is. Design and Construction One thing you wouldn’t miss with the Honor 10 Lite is its minimal design. The notch is noticeably small as the ones we’ve seen in Vivo’s halo notch, OPPO’s waterdrop notch, or the notch of the Essential Phone, and it houses

ASUS ROG Zephyrus S (GX531) Review

Technology
ASUS ROG’s Zephyrus line takes thin-and-light gaming laptops to a different level thanks to their low profile and functional design while keeping power. Today, we’re taking a look at the smallest of the bunch, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus S (GX531). It’s panning out to be an ultimate staple for gaming on-the-go, so let’s see if it holds up to that reputation. The unit used for this review is the 2018 model with a GTX 1060, not one of the RTX-powered ones recently launched at CES 2019. Design and Construction At first glance, it’s what you expect from a Zephyrus. It’s thin, it’s stealthy, and if it’s your first time seeing one, it’s jarring. Most people would be confused at the sight of the keyboard’s position, but that’s okay. We&
