Flash Plus 2 Launch

Thursday, May 26, 2016

     One of the prettiest and sleekest smartphone that I've seen this year was launched last May 24, 2016 at The Penthouse, Lepanto Building in Makati City. I was one of the few who got the first dibs on Flash Plus 2 that will be exclusively available in Lazada this coming May 31, 2016. I was excited to get a glimpse of the phone during the event when I heard that it comes in two classy colors: silver and gold.

     Flash breaks the boundaries between functionality and sophistication with new the Flash Plus 2. Now that its sequel is set to hit Lazada’s e-commerce site starting this next week, you can finally satisfy your cravings for an elegant device that’s only priced at P6, 990. To tell you honestly, I find the price affordable because this phone has a lot to boast. More details about the launch below:
Flash Plus 2 Launch
Flash Plus 2

  • The new smartphone is eyed to offer pioneering innovative functions such as fingerprint recognition technology, Hi-Fi sound effects and fast battery charging—and it’s all boxed in sleek, metal case that transcends beauty and style. 
  • The Flash Plus 2 adopts a metal framework for better feel of texture, but the phone underwent a series of complex processes to achieve what it is today. 
  • It came through horizontal wire-drawing, high-speed side sand-blasting, ultralight rim diamond cutting and twice anodization—with this, you may now have a sense of warmth and vigor for the cold, hard metal work in every touch.
Flash Plus 2 Launch
Lei Zhang, Flash Philippines Country Manager
     “Most people are looking for a sophisticated phone that doesn’t break the bank,” said Lei Zhang, Flash Philippines Country Manager. “With our new flagship phone in place, they will be able to get their hands on a smartphone that’s not only sleek and stylish, but also functional.”
Flash Plus 2 Launch
Inanc Balci, CEO of Lazada Philippines
     "Flash is one of the most successful smartphone brands that always introduces something new to delight customers. We are privileged to be the exclusive distributor of Flash Plus 2 to our online shoppers,” Inanc Balci, CEO of Lazada Philippines said. “Together, we can bring exciting products closer to Filipinos.”
Here are the most-awaited features:

1. Fingerprint

  • The new Flash Plus 2 is equipped with the best photography features, it also adopted a fingerprint technology which sets it apart from its previous version. 
  • This feature allows users to have the “perfect assistant of life and office efficiency in just a flick.”
  • The fingerprint recognition of the new flagship phone offers a 0.5s unlocking mode under “switch off” screen status and all-round accurate recognition. It also allows for personalized app launch options that correspond to the users’ fingerprints. For added security, Flash Plus 2 has a documents protection cabinet where privacy information is stored and encrypted with fingerprint.
Flash Plus 2 Launch
One Finger, One App for the Fingerprint featue
2. Immersive music experience

  • If you are more into music streaming than photography, then you’d be glad to know that Flash Plus 2 also upgrades its entertainment functions by offering an immersive sound experience.
  • The new phone has high-fidelity, quality-retaining earphone acoustics, high sound volume effects, and MIX music production to satisfy your entertainment needs. It has an independent AKM4375 audio decoding chip coupled with state-of-the-art IRD sound digital filter, with value-retaining signal output measuring up to high-fidelity acoustic effects.
  • While the speaker is being used for playing music, the NXP980 power amplification chip and built-in DSP algorithm drives speaker power to reach 3.6 watts—and it is eight times greater than the volume of average smartphones.
Flash Plus 2 Launch
Enjoy an immersive music experience
3. Same photographing DNA

  • Following the same photographing DNA that runs across the whole Flash product roster, the new Flash Plus 2 upgrades your shooting skills to the next level with its light of fast focal adjustment and dark light shooting capabilities.
  • What’s more, the phone’s camera adopts the integration of PDAF and contrast focusing with merely 0.1s of focal alignment. This will allow you to take better snapshots of fleeting moments—from taking a picture of a skateboarder down to snapshotting a flapping swallow.
  • But the new Flash Plus phone’s rear lens is not the only upgraded technology; you’d be glad to know that Flash also innovated its front lens, adopting LED flash lamp with CRI up to 80 while the red spectrum is intelligently enhanced for selfie or video chatting conditions. With ruddy facial effect, the Flash Plus 2 offers over a hundred percent real-time facial enhancement function to capture beautiful moments.
  • With these excellent camera features, the new Flash Plus 2 allows “Picture-in-Picture” capability. This happens when the front and rear lenses work simultaneously, giving you a creative photo-in-photo experience.
Flash Plus 2 Launch
4. Fast-charging capabilities 

  • Users can already enjoy 50 percent of battery after merely 30 minutes of charging time; charging this for two hours lets you call someone for 10 hours.

Globe Disney Phones Pre-Orders Starts Now!

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

     Kenzo started tinkering my tablet around the age of two. He's fond of watching educational shows in YouTube. I was surprised when I saw him doing the slide-tap-hold motion on his own. He's a fast learner and I can say that watching children's movies, listening to nursery rhymes, and enjoying educational shows in YouTube has helped a lot in school. 

     Since Kenzo is turning seven years old this year, I'm planning to teach him how to use a cellphone. I will buy him a unit BUT will wait for another year to let him bring his own cellphone at school. I'm after the basics why I will consider buying him a mobile phone- to text me his whereabouts at school during recess if possible and in case of emergencies. If there's a mobile phone that offers more than the basic functions, I'll be delighted to put that brand on top of my list. While I was browsing the internet last week, I've found out that Globe now has Disney Phones! I'm so excited to have the first dibs on Globe Disney Phones but first let me share the details that I got from Globe and why you and your kid/s should have one!
Globe Disney Phones Pre-Orders Starts Now!
     The kids and kids-at-heart surely will not let this offering from Globe Telecom to pass. Everyone's excited to have their Frozen, Disney Princess, and Mickey Mouse mobile phones!
