Oppo F1s first impressions, Antutu, camera samples

We took a glimpse on Oppo's next selfie expert. Here is my first impressions on Oppo F1s

I got the rose gold on this one. Even that it is only HD resolution on a 5.5 inch display, it still looks fine. The phone also feels light for the size at 160 grams.



At the left, you can see the volume rocker while on the right side, the power/unlock button and single tray containing dual nano SIM and micro SD.



Noise cancelling mic at the top, 3.5 mm audio jack, dual speakers (to be confirmed) and pin hole mic plus OTG capable micro USB port at the bottom



These are the main page and pulldown menu based on Color OS 3.0 of Android 5.1 Lollipop. According to an Oppo Philippines official, no info yet on the possible Android 6.0 Marshmallow.



Jumping in the Pro mode, it has meat and almost the same that I saw on the Oppo F1 Plus



On benchmarks, it scored at over 41,000 on Antutu and it has 3 point multitouch.



One media personnel asked about the possible 700 Mhz LTE band on the said device so I checked and based on engineering mode, it has band 1, 3, 8 and 40.



The device has acclerometer, light, proximity, orientation, sound and magnetic sensors



And the rear and front camera samples in that order. I am lucky that one of the personnel there has an F1 Plus and I compared it, it has a bit less in color accuracy esp. my green cap but no complains for the Php 7000 difference.





Oppo F1s will be on pre-order this August 12 to 18 in their stores and it will be available this August 19 for Php 12,990

O+ Venti LTE Review

I made sure that I will have the chance to review one of the country's first smartphones powered by a relatively new Speadtrum SoC with LTE connecitivity. Here's my O+ Venti LTE Review.

Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro first look, benchmarks, camera samples

The night will not be complete for me as I had my test run earlier of Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro.

The front and back portions of the device looks elegant despite of it's size. I never had that much difficulty on handling it but you can really tell that it is a bit heavy.



The left part has volume buttons and OTG and reverse charging capable micro USB port, speaker and pin hole mic at the bottom. Not in the picture as on the top, there is a 3.5 mm. audio jack and micro SD tray and on the right, there goes the dual nano SIM tray



Glimpse of the pulldown menu and what to expect on app storage out of 32 GB ROM



The phone scored over 68,000 in Antutu. Accelerometer, light, orientation, proximity, sound and magnetic sensors are here. It has 10 point multi touch and internal storage was supplied by Toshiba.



Both cameras can shoot at 4:3 aspect ratio and can shoot full HD video.



I was in a place with artificial lighting which it is quite test to check the f/1.9 aperture of both shooters. The main and secondary cameras in that order.





Based on my assessment, the probable customers of this device will be those who are really into Samsung phones but needs a real dual SIM (compared to Galaxy S7 Edge) and those who is more into big displays and for heavy multimedia consumption.

Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro will be available this August 12 for Php 25,990

Cherry Mobile M1 first look, benchmarks, camera samples

We are not in the launch of this first deca-core powered local smartphone but I had a date of it in a few minutes, here's my post on Cherry Mobile M1

First, lets go to the specs:

Mediatek Helio X20 deca-core processor with Mali T880 GPU, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, dual micro SIM, 21 MP main cam with Sony IMX 230 sensor, 8 MP secondary cam, 5.5 inch IPS Full HD display, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB ROM, no micro SD slot quick charging, USB Type C, NFC, finger print reader and 3,600 mAh battery

The front and back portions of Cherry Mobile M1 which reminds me a bit of Cosmos One Plus. At first, you might think that it has dual front speakers but the bottom part that is working. Of course, the upper part is the one for accepting calls. Display is a-ok for the IPS display. I was not able to check out the finger print reader



Yup the phone has curves. The top has the 3.5 mm. audio jack and pin hole mic and USB Type C at the bottom.



Dual micro SIM in one tray at the left, volume rocker and power/unlock button at the right.



The normal navigation and switching apps are a-ok at the phone. I saw the camera and it was quite basic (as the same as the one at Cherry Mobile Infinix Pure) but the important thing is the output which you will gonna see later.

The benchmarks are expected at over 90,000 on Antutu and good amount of sensors plus 5 point multi touch.

I took the camera samples inside McDo Forbes Town Center. It is quite good on artificial with a mix of daylight. What concerned me, both cams have f/2.8 aperture which might struggle if you will bring this on low light. Both are also in 4:3 aspect ratio. The 21 MP rear camera and 8 MP front camera samples in that order





Cherry Mobile M1 will be out in stores in the next few days for Php 11,999. Credits to Peter of gizguide.com as he allowed me to play the Cherry Mobile M1 review unit.

Benchmarks and more info on the upcoming Asus Zenfone 3

You might already saw the key specs and as well the first introduction of the Asus Zenfone 3 (I am not talking about the entire line but the "regular" Zenfone 3) in Computex but there are some missing info and our curiosity on it's processor.

Oppo F1 Plus Review

Oppo promised to us that the F1 Plus will be their selfie expert but not just for me as it was my first time to check out this pretty new SoC. Is it worth for the price. Here is my Oppo F1 Plus revuew

Acer Liquid Z330 Review

It's my first taste to check out the entry-level Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 quad-core processor on a phone like Acer Liquid Z330. Did it satisfy me? Check out my review

Torque Ego Tab S Unboxing and Review

The guys from Torque gave this blog a chance to check out the most affordable on the new Ego tablet series. I had this tablet for weeks now so I just gonna put the unboxing and my review in one.

This is the box and what's inside of the Torque Ego Tab S with screen guard, 2 ampere charger, user manual, warranty card and micro USB to USB chord


Front: VGA front camera, 7 inch WSVGA display
Back: Rear camera, Torque logo, single speaker
Internals: 1.0 GHz Rockchip RK2928 Cortex-A9 single core processor made in 55nm process, Android 4.4 Kitkat 512 MB RAM, 8 GB ROM, WiFi, no Bluetooth, 2,500 mAh battery


Nothing to check on the left and right sides


The whole top portion is pretty packed with power/unlock button, 3.5 mm. audio jack, micro USB port and volume rocker.


Compared to Torque Ego Phab tablet, I'll love this more only for the form factor with curved back and a bit rubbery back finish.

A bit skinned Android 4.4 Kitkat in this tablet has a weight obviously for it's single core processor as I really experienced lag mainly on unlocking it to the worst one, copying and pasting files on it's stock file manager. I didn't dare to put some gaming test on it as I used it mainly for surfing and as a mutimedia companion 



Screenshots from some benchmark apps. Not surprised that it only scored over 7,000 on Antutu. Good thing that I don't have any problems on it's 5 point multi touch display




The tablet has two partitions for storage, the nand flash which I recommend to to put in media files in case you don't have a micro SD at over 5 GB and internal storage (which will store the apps) at less than a GB. It's already 2016 and we want unified storage for all sorts of Android devices so this set-up is a no no.


On battery, it only surived at less than 4 hours as the heat issues on it's 55 nm SoC was the probable cause on this one. Almost the same goes when I used it on uninterrupted internet usage via WiFi. By the WiFi was a-ok in this tablet but no Bluetooth. The audio jack is CTIA compliant.

For the overall functionality of this device and for the price of Php 1,699, I'll gonna give it 3.5 out of 5 but I hope Torque will put a price drop on this one soon as for additional Php 300, you'll gonna get a tablet with better quad-core processor plus digital TV soon from a local brand.
