LG X Power Now Available Price Philippines Specs

LG announces the arrival of it heavy duty smartphone - X Power.

LG X Power comes in black or gold color options that is all plastic construction but is slimmer and lighter for its size and capacity. Sports a 5.3 inch LCD Display with HD Resolution should provide enough screen size for your visual needs. For its size and battery, it is quite light and nice to handle.

Powering the device is Mediatek MT6735 Quad-Core Processor clocked at 1.3GHz that is accompanied with Mali-T720 GPU as well as 2GB RAM and 16GB Internal Storage. You can have more storage via MicroSD slot. We have seen this kind of specification from other brands and it should be able to handle your applications, social and light games with less of hiccups. On the Test unit, it even has NBA 2K17 although it was playable at only lower settings. You have at least 10GB free space.

Features a 13MP primary rear camera with LED Flash. You do get creative filters and gesture controls with your snaps. Front camera is only 5MP to cater your basic selfies and video chat. Though we expect it to produce good results in daylight or with enough light source.

Focus and color is on point but output is much on a dimmer sidewhich might be due to aperture size of its camera at f/2.2.

Selfie is just decent but details and colors are accurate. Just make sure you have enough light as it will disappoint when it comes to low light captures.

WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS serves its wireless connectivity. LG X Power does offer LTE Cat 4 for faster internet connection on the go. USB-OTG is supported.

Finally, we arrive at LG X Power selling point is its battery at 4100mAH that supports Fast Charge with 2.3 Hrs Charging Time and capable of Reverse Charging (serves as powerbank to other devices). LG Batteries most reliable in the industry and so I am confident it won't (explode ehem) disappoint.

However hope LG improves on design and internals as competition is really tough and they are lagging behind. LG was innovative during its Optimus days but seems more focus on their high end. Anyways just sharing my opinion.

LG X Power is another choice for relatively slim device with entry level performance and has big battery. Price for 8,490 Pesos. Posted from LG Facebook Page.

IP Converge Data Services, Inc. Partners with PIA for Scholarship for Underprivileged Youth

IPC (IP Converge Data Services, Inc.), a pioneer in local cloud and data center services, announces its partnership with Philippine International Aid (PIA), a U.S.-based charity providing health and educational assistance to underprivileged youth.

One of the PIA’s core initiatives is the “Off the Streets-Off to School” scholarship, a program that helps parents and teachers to keep kids in school. Administered in partnership with the Phil-Asia Assistance Foundation, the Off the Streets–Off to School program provides scholarships annually to more than 1,000 children in Metro Manila.

Together with their partners, PIA helps students go through primary education onwards to college. The student's academic progress is monitored throughout the academic year and are encouraged to correspond with their respective benefactors.

Heading the organization is Mona Lisa Yuchengco, the founder and publisher of, an online magazine on the Filipino diaspora. She also serves on the board of the Women’s Media Center, a non-profit progressive women's media organization. Working with her at PIA are successful Filipino-American business executives living in the Bay Area such as Executive Director James T. Lim, the current General Manager of the Omni Hotel, Secretary Sonia T. Delen, a Senior Vice-President at Bank of America Leasing, and France M. Viana, a strategic marketing consultant who currently heads the marketing department of the San Francisco World Affairs Council.

“PIA started out as a scholarship fund to send street children to school, to take them away from the streets where they were being recruited by pimps, and to place them in schools where they belong. Since then, thousands of children have gone through the program. Many of them have graduated college and gotten jobs, and are now able to help support their families,” said Yuchengco.

Under the program, IPC will fund the school expenses of 5 students of the Eulogio Rodriguez Integrated School in Mandaluyong City. The funds provided will take care of tuition fees, books, supplies, field trip costs, uniforms, shoes, and allowances for meals and transportation.

“Supporting the Off the Streets-Off to School program was an easy decision for us because IPC is always looking for ways to use its resources and expertise to give back to the community,” said Reynaldo Huergas, President of IPC. “Everyone of us is very excited to be part of this amazing project. We know that a lot of students are forced to drop out of school because of money and hopefully with our partnership with PIA, we can help those students stay and learn so that they can have a better future.”

This is the second time that IPC has teamed up with a charity dedicated to help improve education. In 2014, they lent their cloud technology services to assist the Teachers for the Philippines in documenting and tracking the effectivity of their teaching programs.

“We are always eager to lend a helping a hand to those in need, especially when it comes to education. We firmly believe that everyone should have access to education and IPC is happy to help schools and students alike in any way we can,” added Huergas.

You do get the Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime with Free Level Active Headset and a Clear Case.
Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime Pink

Samsung announces Pre-Order oftheir new Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime.

Coming in curved edges in metal brushed finish fitting for the Prime branding. It houses a 5.5 inch Full HD TFT Display wih 2.5D Curved glass.

Powered by Samsung own Exynos 7870 1.6 GHz Octa-Core Processor with Mali-T830MP2 couple with 3GB RAM and 32GB Internal Storage. You have at least 23GB free storage. With more memory, it was able to handle the pressure of multiple apps running in the background. Test unit of J7 Prime had NBA 2K17 on it and gameplay was good.

Runs the latest Android Marshmallow but we did notice that it has Samsung Cloud as well as Smartview (Miracast) which was missing for A5 2016 and A7 2016. Software is updated on this Samsung that's for sure. Microsoft Office Suite is great addition for productivity tools.

Brilliant optics with aperture f/1.9 for its 13MP Rear Camera supported with LED Flash and 8MP Front Camera. Samples:

As expected it has brilliant camera with big aperture size at f/1.9. Focus was good, although white balance need some work. Left Picture focuses on J7 Prime Display while the right side focuses on the background.

I did a selfie and hair strands shows how detailed even the front cam is. Wih f/1.9 aperture it is brighter than other smartphone in the market.

This is a Dual Sim smartphone and also features the regular set of wireless connectivity from WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS. It Supports USB-OTG for more direct connection to usb peripherals. Ultra-Fast LTE is available for on-the-go connection. There is a nifty feature when it comes to your data allocation, as Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime has Ultra-Data Saving Mode to cut internet cost by compressing data.

Samsung Galaxy J7 Prime finally gets fingerprint sensor for added security.

Carries a 3300mAh Battery which should delivery better battery life with its modest specifications.

Overall, its metallic design is much appreciated than that of dual glass as for me it is much sturdier and less prone to breakage. J7 Prime has miracast that enables you to cast to an external display wirelessly which can't be found on A S2016 Series Samsung. Internal hardware is relatively new and has more memory which enables it to run and handle even heavy apps and games. It's worth considering even though it only has TFT display.

Pre-Order is through Lazada Philippines.
