VP Robredo, Step Down as HUDCC Chairperson

/ No Comments
Philippines – On December 5, 2016 the second highest elected officials of the country, Vice President Leni Robredo submitted a resignation letter as a member of the cabinet of President Rodrigo Duterte. 

She vacated the cabinet position as Chairperson of Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) where Pres. Duterte appointed her.



According to the vice president itself, she decided to resign because she think that she cannot perform her duties as HUDCC secretary, if she cannot allowed to attend in any Cabinet meeting? 

Last Saturday, VP Robredo received a text message from Cabinet Se­cretary Jun Evasco Jr, relaying a message from President Duterte’s instruction through Bong GO that VP Robredo can no longer attend any cabinet meeting starting December 5, 2016.

The vice president suspicions of not allowing to attend the cabinet meeting is that her differences with the president on what is happening to the countries might lead to it?

Such as her against in Extra Judicial Killing, her bold protest on Marcos burial at the Heroes Cemetery (LNMB) and the rumors of her being removed as vice president of the country where the alleged true winner Bongbong Marcos will relieved her as the true vice president of the country?

The VP also send a clear message to the Filipino People that she is ready to lead the opposition to continue to fight for what is right and to oppose the policies of Pres. Duterte where she think is not right? 

VP Robredo, is known to be a political allies of the Aquino’s administration or LP. A known political rivalry of Pres. Duterte where he fought Mar Roxas for Presidency?

The resignation of VP Robredo, or the firing of VP Robredo from the Duterte’s Cabinet is might be another political strategy for both sides?

When was the last time you ever saw someone holding up a mobile phone with a VGA camera to take photos? Nowadays, it is unusual to even see someone owning that kind of mobile phone. When you walk down the streets, you would mostly see people holding smartphones. These smartphones have cameras that can capture megapixels. The higher, the better and more accurate in terms of image resolution.

The camera game has definitely changed. Smartphone brands are constantly upgrading their cameras to challenge professional cameras in the best way that they can. However, to be able to know who the reigning king of smartphone photography is, there is a need to directly compare the capabilities of various smartphone cameras.

Seven participants, comprised of Instagram influencers and photography enthusiasts, have been invited to test out smartphone photography. In respective order, Samsung, Apple and Huawei came out as the top 3 with the most smartphones sold globally during Q2 of 2016. As such, for the challenge, the selected smartphones to be used were the Samsung S7, Apple iPhone 7 Plus and Huawei P9.

The Rules of the Challenge
On the battle, each participant was instructed to shoot different subjects using the iPhone 7, Huawei P9 and Samsung Galaxy S7 in same angles. This method is mostly used to easily compare shots, but we’ve also added more context as they need to shoot in 4 different kinds of categories, vivid, bokeh/depth of field, low light and monochrome/black and white.


The iPhone 7 Plus trumps Samsung Galaxy S7 and Huawei P9 in the lowlight category with 6 voting it to be the best in that segment. It further proves what the brand claims as a mastery to taking photos even at the most unexpected moments.

However, Huawei P9 takes the lead for most of the categories namely the bokeh feature, monochrome and vivid portions with 7, 5 and 4 respondents respectively voting for the brand to have the best in these specifications.

In a similar phone blind test that Vox Pop did, this time with 50 respondents, the results are almost the same. The Samsung Galaxy S7 lags behind the two other brands in all categories, getting only 12%-18% of the respondents’ nod. The iPhone 7 Plus ranks in second, getting 30% of the votes for the bokeh category and 34% for the monochrome selection.

Unsurprisingly, the Huawei P9 got the most votes for Bokeh with 29 respondents agreeing it has the best feature in that category. It finished a close second to the iPhone 7 Plus in the Monochrome and Vivid categories, gathering 24 and 22 total votes, respectively. Overall, the participants seem to favor Samsung Galaxy S7 the least and Huawei P9 the most when it comes to three key features: bokeh, monochrome and vivid.



The Result of the Challenge

As this was a blind test for all the respondents, both surveys swing in the same results with the Samsung Galaxy S7 as the least favorite for all of the features suggested. Meanwhile, the iPhone 7 Plus gets applauded for its excellent lowlight capacity.

As for the rest of the features tested – bokeh, monochrome and vivid – Huawei P9 proves to be the best and it can be said that the brand’s partnership with Leica has turned out to be the most wonderful decision it has made to date.
