Samsung Galaxy Note 5—The next big thing

Years ago, people were calling “phablets” the next big thing.
A phablet is actually a smart phone and tablet in one mobile device. And now the next big thing is the Samsung Galaxy Note 5, and it’s here.

With dimensions of 153.2 x 7.6 mm, the Note 5 is smaller and thinner than the Note 4.
It’s also lighter at 171g, with a more premium look and feel.
The back glass of the phone curves inward on the right and left sides, which makes it easy to hold despite its phablet size. And to clarify, the Note 5’s superb screen is flat, not curved.

If you like taking pictures, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5’s camera is powerful. It can take beautiful photographs and videos clearly. If you want your pictures to be sharper, you can switch to “pro” mode, which gives you new options to tweak the camera before you take a shot.
If you like to take selfies, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has a “beauty” feature which allows you to adjust your skin tone, eye size, and even face size. There’s also the “wide selfie” mode for when you need to fit more people into the frame.

Of course, the Note 5 wouldn’t be a Note without an S Pen stylus, and Samsung has made several improvements to it. It now has a unique pop-out tab to remove it.
Samsung has also boosted the software to interact with the stylus. You can draw with the stylus and use it to scribble on photos or take notes your phone.

The 3,000-mAh power cell provides enough charge to get the phone through a full day. It supports QuickCharge 2.0 and can go from 0 to 60 percent quickly. This means you can actually leave home without a power bank.
For me, the screen is the Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5’s most outstanding feature. The QHD, Super AMOLED display’s saturation and overall brightness makes it a winner. The size of the screen allows you to take full advantage of the Multi-Window mode or the Split-Screen, so you to do two things at the same time. This means you could be replying to an email and watching a video on YouTube at the same time.

Now You Can Purchase The Ultimate Smartwatch In Town!

Face it. You can’t live without your phone, but there are times when you don’t want to be holding on to it.
Like maybe you’re working out or you’re traveling or shopping. But you don’t want to leave your phone in your bag because your kids/husband/wife might be looking for you. And God forbid—that dreaded call from the school infirmary!
Maybe you’re on a date or a social event and it’s not cool to be holding on to your phone.
Not to worry, there’s a new smartwatch that makes things better with every turn.

Samsung Gear 2

Enter Samsung’s revolutionary smartwatch, the Gear S2, which lets you enjoy more than just the conveniences of your smartphone right on your wrist. It also gives you freedom and independence from your phone to allow you to perform at your best while keeping you connected.

Samsung’s expertise in wearable technology started in 2013. Now the Samsung Gear S2 features the revolutionary rotating bezel control which makes the gadget suited to both right- and left-handed people.
The rotating bezel makes navigation easier—avoiding clumsy ways of trying to adjust the crown—while providing an unobstructed view of apps and messages on a clear and bright, 1.2 inch Super AMOLED screen.

The new smartwatch now has elegant curves give it a cleaner, neater look.
But more than an accessory, it’s the perfect complementary device to your Samsung smartphone that gives you easy access to notifications and messages, and a rich app ecosystem.

It comes in two models: the Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic.
The Gear S2 was designed for active, sports-minded users. You can read messages while you work out and it monitors your health stats through S-Health, which will help you stay on your fitness track. Runs on Samsung’s Tizen platform and a battery that lasts for 2-3 days.
Then there’s Samsung Gear S2’s more fashion-forward counterpart—the Gear S2 Classic, for those who love to personalize their accessories with interchangeable watch faces and wrist straps.

Samsung Gear S2

Now with just a month before Christmas, the Samsung Gear S2 is one of the best gifts you can give to loved ones or yourself. The Gear S2 priced at P13,490 while the Gear S2 classic at P15,490.
