RNTD Top 10 Stories of 2016

Year 2016 was another fruitful year for this blog both on readership and the support of various brands and companies that I featured so I decided to bring in the top 10 stories of 2016 based on the total readership throughout the said year. The hyperlinks are embedded at the title if you want to check it once again




10. MyPhone My83 DTV First Impressions

MyPhone's first media event was last May 2016. There were some changes in their line-up of officials and also the start of their new direction toward Android devices with Digital TV. At only Php 2,499, MyPhone My83 DTV took some attention in my readers so they checked the first look of it.


9. Cloudfone Thrill Lite First Impressions

Another blockbuster in Cellprime's January 2016 media launcher in terms of readership is my first check on Cloudfone Thrill Lite. The biggest discovery for me and probably got the wow factor from my readers is having an USB OTG support in a phone for only Php 1,999 (and it is still rare up to this day). I also got some inquiries from my readers thru my social media pages on how did I managed to remove that pretty hard back cover. How I wish I had a complete review of this one 


8. Alcatel Pixi 4 6 First Impressions

Before their launch last May 2016, readers already knew that Flash and Alcatel will be separate in terms of selling their phones. Right after their launch with other phones, I managed to get a review unit of their 6 inch Alcatel Pixi 4 6 phablet. For me, defnitely, one of the best MT6580-powered that I tested


7. Smart Prepaid UCT 100 and UCT 350 Offers #RNTDFirst

Sometimes I got some tech-related news even in between some errands and some daily activities in between. I got this news simply by various print materials of Smart Prepaid in a number of sari-sari stores nearby. This is definitely one of the best Smart offers that started last year. No wonder that after a few days after they launched it, Globe got a cheaper alternative via GoSakto. I knew that reader also want to know the latest telco prepaid offers which can have more value on their hard-earned prepaid load.


6. Cloudfone Excite Prime First Impressions

The third Cloudfone handset that took some attention from their January 2016 media launch was the Cloufone Excite Prime, a 5.5 inch phablet with octa-core processor for Php 3,999. I had high hopes on this one compared to the not that good Excite 501o and definitely one of their overall best releases in terms of specs and price ratio. Even up to this point, there are some praises if you will gonna visit their user-powered Facebook group


5. ABS CBN TV Plus Kapamilya Box Office (KBO) Leak

This blog is following the ABS-CBN TV Plus since 2014 and my eyes popped out when I saw this news from an FB group of TV Plus users last March 2016 . During the time that I got this news, it was a rumor that they will gonna implement a PPV feature and the payment was thru ABS-CBN Mobile load. A few months after, it became a reality and you are seeing a number of TV ads and they even had a Super KBO at a higher price but with newer movie


4. Asus Zenfone Store Opening Announcement

With already 3 editions of Zenfone, 2016 was the right time for Asus Philippines to put up a Zenfone Concept Store located at Glorietta 2. I think the crowd drawer of this blog post when they found out of their pre-order promos of some of the featured Zenfone phablets.



When I posted this article, you might noticed that Cherry Mobile rolled out this particular Android phones on other tech blogs and websites for review and all of them were in white. Thanks to a Facebook user, it was a refreshing take and opened a new choice that Cherry Mobile Flare X2 has now a black version and it really looks good for me and others who reacted on this picture plus the black bezels are pretty much less visible



Also got from their media event last May 2016 was the two tablet offering of MyPhone with digital TV. Readers got curious as there will be another function on these tablets and obviously, it is fun to watch free TV on a bigger screen.


1. Spotify Premium - 3 Months for Php 49

Filipinos love to listen to music and so as Spotify. It was really a big deal when this blog brouaght this deal. 49 pesos for a 3 month subscription of Spotify Premium was a smash hit that it was also the one with most number of inquiries from my readers. At first, you can pay this one via Globe load but the commenters recently posted that the said option is no longer available but still there are some great alternatives especially for those who do not have a credit card via Paymaya or GCash. If you still missed this news, you only have until 11:59 pm of January 1 2017 to catch this deal.

As I already posted in the blog's Facebook page, this blog got another record-breaking numbers in terms of readership - more than double compared to what I achieved last 2015 so my warmest and sincere thanks for all the support and love that you gave in to ronnotthedj.com . There will be more to come and I hope you will stay and this blog will be your one of your online destinations for mostly o tech and beyond.
