Tried and tested: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ reviewed

Growing up, my parents were really frustrated whenever we would, say, eat at Kimpura and everyone would order fried rice and I wanted plain.
From a very young age I knew what I wanted and I grew up not wanting what everyone had. It wasn’t a conscious effort to be a pain in the ass. That’s just how I am or how God made me???

Most people are suprised to find out I don’t use an iPhone. My first computer was an Apple Macintosh, way back in 1984. I have always used Apple computers, but for some reason I never got into the iPod, the iPad and the iPhone. When it comes to phones, I still prefer Samsung.

My love affair with Samsung phones started when Jeroen’s business partner gave me a Samsung Galaxy Note back in 2012. At that time I was a BlackBerry user and didn’t care if I was the last BlackBerry user on the planet—I just loved the keyboard I could feel with my fingers.
I decided to use the Samsung Galaxy Note as my second phone because of the apps, bigger screen, and pen. I was also thrilled when I was finally able to join the world of Instagram via Android.

Today I am a full-fledged Samsung phone user. I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and a Samsung Galaxy Note 4.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge is a sleek and sexy phone. I just love the high-tech wrap screen!! Jeroen’s business partner gave me one and I really found it gorgeous, but a bit small for my big hands. So when Samsung offered me a Galaxy S6 edge+ to review, I grabbed the offer.
Couldn’t wait and opened it in the car.

First I transferred all my data from the Galaxy S6 edge to the Galaxy S6 edge+ via Samsung’s Smart Switch App.
No need to connect to a computer. So easy, I did it in my car.

Next I went to the Samsung store at SM Aura in search of a cover. Not much choice at the moment but I’m glad to have found a classy blue cover. I lovett!

It was Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano who taught me about Samsung’s keyboard swipe feature that made me finally give up the BlackBerry. It works like this:

As a blogger, I’m very particular about the quality of photos I published. I always carry a little Canon camera in my bag, but there are times that the battery will conk out or I’ll forget it. I’ve found that the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ takes fantastic pictures. Just check out these photos from my phone

Other features worth mentioning:
1) If you’re into selfies, it has a Beauty Face Feature that allows you to take flawless photos of yourself.
2) Fast charge. I’ve noticed that it takes much faster to charge the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+.
3) It has dual SIM. First time for me to try it out.
4) I don’t know what they did to the screen, but it doesn’t get oily with fingerprints!

I lovett. The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ retails for Php 39,990 (32GB) and Php 44,990 (64GB).

Julie Anne’s transformation

Sorry for the jeje post, but my friend Reese and I are obsessed with plastic surgery and I want her to see Julie Anne San Jose’s amazing transformation.
If you don’t know who she is, well I didn’t know either until 2012, when she was paired onscreen with my friend Pia’s son, Elmo Magalona.

Julie Anne is a gifted singer with tons of fans.
The other night I was Googling random stuff, until I stumbled upon Julie Ann’s 2015 music video and didn’t recognize her. I compared this with her 2014 music video and was simply amazed.
The weight loss is definitely a factor—she said that’s because she gave up meat to eat more fish.
But the before and after videos definitely beg the question: Is it plastic surgery or is it Bambbi Fuentes???

LIMITLESS: New action-drama premieres on RTL CBS Entertainment HD

LIMITLESS, the highly-anticipated TV series in the US this fall, premieres on RTL CBS Entertainment HD on September 23, Wednesday at 9 PM within 12 hours of its US broadcast.
Based on the feature film with the same title, LIMITLESS is an action-drama about Brian Finch who discovers the brain-boosting power of the mysterious drug NZT.
The series stars Jake McDorman (“American Sniper” and “Greek”), Jennifer Carpenter (“Dexter”), Hill Harper (“CSI:NY” and “Covet Affairs”), and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio (“Scarface” and “The Colour of Money”).
Academy Award® nominee, Bradley Cooper is executive producing the series and will guest star in the pilot reprising his role as Senator Edward Mora, the character he played in the movie.


“We’re committed to bringing very strong programming to audiences in the region and are delighted to air LIMITLESS day and date of its U.S. broadcast,” said Jonas Engwall, CEO, RTL CBS Asia Entertainment Network. “This highly-anticipated show will complement the outstanding line-up of programs on our channel.”

LIMITLESS is a fast-paced drama that will explore what happens when there are no limits to man’s potential as Finch is coerced by the FBI to use his newfound extraordinary cognitive abilities to solve complex cases for them.
Working closely with Finch in the major case squad in New York City is Special Agent Rebecca Harris (Jennifer Carpenter), a formidable investigator with a dark past and Special Agent Boyle (Hill Harper), a former military officer and Rebecca’s confidant.

Unbeknownst to the FBI, Finch also has a clandestine relationship with Senator Edward Mora (Bradley Cooper), a presidential hopeful and regular user of NZT, who has plans of his own for his new protégé.
Fueled now with a steady supply of NZT that enables him to use 100% of his brain capacity, Finch is now more effective than all of the FBI agents combined, making him a criminal’s worst nightmare and the greatest asset the Bureau has ever possessed.

LIMITLESS is executive produced by Craig Sweeny, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Heather Kadin, Marc Webb, Bradley Cooper, Todd Phillips, Ryan Kavanaugh, Tucker Tooley and Tom Forman. Produced by CBS Television Studios in association with K/O Paper Products and Relativity Television, the series is internationally distributed by CBS Studios International.
