Filipino Fisherman Free Again to Fish in Scarborough Shoal

/ No Comments
Filipino fisherman is now free again from fishing in Scarborough Shoal. There are reports from several days that no Chinese coast guard has been spotted in the said fishing ground while some says China’s coast guard are still there, but one thing in common is that they don’t even bother them from reproaching or driven them away in the controversial disputed West Philippine Sea or South China Sea.

According to some fishermen, many of their colleagues dared to fish in Scarborough shoal but contrary to their expectations they are no longer driven away by the Chinese Coast Guard. Upon their return to the shore, they brought the good news to other fishermen that they are very glad that they can catch many fish and at the same time they are free to fish again without endangering their life.

The no reproach of the Chinese Coast Guard to Filipino fisherman is due to President Rodrigo Duterte efforts on his recent state visit in China, where the Philippines try to fix or settle the relationship with China, which brought damage from the past administration due to the disputed island that both countries express that they own the said sea or island.

It remembers that the Philippines won the ruling of the international court over disputed islands, filed against China, but China did not recognize the decision and instead said in a statement that they own the disputed island's base on history.

Until now China’s Coast Guard are still patrolling the disputed islands that they claim, but for now the only consideration for us Filipino especially the Filipino fisherman is that they are now allowed to fish over the disputed sea legally for now!

Head to Head Comparison of Dual Lens Camera Phones

The dual camera is the new battlefield for all smartphones today. A trend which started five years ago, this movement in mobile technology is quickly gaining pace as some of the biggest names in the smartphone arena are adapting this innovation.

Chinese smartphone brand Huawei launched the P9 and P9 Plus, the frontliners of its mobile phone high-end line. Both units boast of a high-powered dual lens camera co-engineered with renowned German camera manufacturer, Leica. These dual cameras are equipped with 12MP sensors, RBG and monochrome with f/2.2 aperture that are built to work in tandem to enhance details for professional quality photos.

Months later, Apple launched its highly anticipated iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in September. Unlike its Huawei competitor, Apple only made the dual lens feature available in its iPhone 7 Plus model. Apple iPhone 7 Plus is also equipped with 12MP lenses, with one lens as wide angle and the other as a telephoto lens (2x zoom). The two lenses have f/1.8 and f/2.8 aperture, respectively. 

The two smartphones seem to be in equal footing when it comes to clarity of details and overall quality of output. Nonetheless, each has its own highlights and strengths that cater to the photo savvy mobile phone user. For instance, Huawei P9 is known to be the go-to smartphone camera for taking dramatic, night cityscape shots with its low-light and bokeh photo effects, as well as its dedicated monochrome lens for crisp black and white shots. Meanwhile, the iPhone 7 Plus comes in handy in perfecting those medium shots with its 2x optical zoom enabled by the additional telephoto lens.

With their own highlight features and distinct functions, there is no clear winner in the duel between iPhone 7 Plus and Huawei P9. As seen above, iPhone 7 Plus performs better in tighter and more focused shots due to its post-simulation feature, which processes images in place more than the ordinary lens. On the other hand, Huawei P9 proves to be ideal for taking photos with more vivid color representation because of its P9 can stimulating capacity of flare effects and focus.

As these big players in the smartphone industry continue to set the pace in the dual camera arena, other mobile brands are foreseen to follow suit. Apple and Huawei have currently set the standards for dual camera technology, but as the competition heats up in this field, other players are anticipated to join in the trend with their own offerings in the next few years.

Make way for Huawei; Watch out Samsung and Apple!

As more and more Asian phone makers are making their way through the global smartphone market, top sellers Samsung and Apple are increasingly threatened to keep their voice atop and secure market shares. 

According to market research firm Kantar Worldpanel, Chinese phone makers, like Huawei and Xiaomi, are steadily grabbing market shares in fast-growing developing markets, while consumers in the slower-growing developed markets are more reluctant to switch brands. 

“Anyone still focusing on these two giant competitors, however, is missing the bigger picture,” Kantar analyst Lauren Guenveur wrote in Kantar Worldpanel blog post News Centre. “With Huawei aiming to overtake Apple as the second-largest smartphone vendor by 2020, and Google’s Pixel entering the handset market on its own recently, Apple and Samsung should stop worrying so much about each other and take a look around them.”

Huawei, according to Gartner is the world’s third-largest producer of smartphones with an 8.9% market share in the second quarter of 2016, well behind Apple Inc.’s 12.9% and Samsung Electronic Co.’s 22.3%.

According to the same study, 88% of current Apple users in the U.S. say they will buy another iPhone and 86% of Samsung owners want to stick with the brand.

In China, however, Samsung had just a 9% share of sales and Apple had almost 20%, said Kantar. Local manufacturer Huawei beat them both, grabbing almost 26% of the market.

In India, Samsung is leading without giving specific market share figures. Both Apple and Huawei have also targeted the market for growth.

In the Philippines, however, the rapid growth of the mobile industry was perceived by Huawei as an opportunity to expand and further develop services as published by the Manila Bulletin online.

On the other hand, sales of Samsung are expected to hit an all-time low in the Philippines due to the Samsung Note 7 global recall. These pave way for opportunities for Huawei and Apple to claim their stand in the mobile phone market.

Filipinos are heavy smartphone consumers

/ No Comments
This is a Sponsored Post by: Innity Philippines

Would you believe that a total of 3.5 million smartphones were shipped to the Philippines in the first quarter alone of this year? That is up by 20% in the recent months according to market research firm, International Data Corporation (IDC). In fact, consumer spend on smartphones in the country is considered to be the fastest in the entire Southeast Asian region as dictated by surging demand on a market where active players are ever present.

Visitors look at the new Samsung Galaxy S7 on the opening day of the World Mobile Congress on Feb. 22, 2016, in Barcelona. 

  “With many of the more mature smartphone markets of the world already displayed signs of saturation, the Philippines smartphone market continues to enjoy robust growth owing to a relatively low smartphone penetration rate (30% in 2015), active local brand presence, and healthy consumer spending,” Jerome Dominguez, IDC Philippines market analyst for mobile devices, said in a press release.

Strong growth is being driven largely by predominance of cheap devices being peddled by local vendors. According to IDC, smartphones below P3,500 still corner bulk of the market. But though local companies have seized majority of the market, Chinese and other global vendors are now also gradually catching up. IDC noted that Samsung and ASUS are now playing more aggressively in the sub-P6,000 space, while China-based vendors, such as Huawei and OPPO, are also expanding their foothold.

Huawei’s rise has shown extraordinary growth in developing markets, according to market research firm Kantar Worldpanel. Its increasing brand influence is echoed by Huawei’s continued and steady revenue growth. Huawei shipped 108 million smartphones worldwide in 2015, up 44 percent year-on-year.

However, the study found consumers are more reluctant to switch brands in slower-growing developed markets.

Samsung accounts for 37% of smartphones sold in the United States, while Apple captures a 29% share. In stark contrast, Samsung only had a 9% share of sales in China, with Apple seeing a drop to 20%. Huawei raced ahead with a market share of 26%.

Other large markets tipped for huge growth include India, South America, and Southeast Asia.

Amid surging smartphone growth, IDC said another key battleground would be innovation and after-sales service.

“Defect issues and poor after-sales continue to plague the smartphone market. It is only a matter of time before majority of Filipino consumers put more premium on smartphones that are not just easy on the pocket but also offer good value for money,” said Dominguez.

Kevin Durant Finally Debuted in Warriors Uniform

/ No Comments
The most anticipated debut of Kevin Durant in warriors uniform finally happen yesterday October 1 (US Time) in Vancouver, British Columbia.

The Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors held a Preseason game opener in Vancouver where the raptors beat warriors 97-93.

Despite a debut loss for Durant, who only scored 9 points in 2 of 9 shooting percentage in 18 minutes of play time, it seems that he already fit in the system of the team and could be a very good sign for the warrior’s contention of getting back in the NBA Finals and reclaiming the NBA Championship.

While it’s just only an exhibition game, the real game is about to come on October 30, the start of new season 2016-2017 NBA Season.

Every team in NBA will try to dethrone the current NBA Champion the “Cleveland Cavaliers” and one of those team is the Golden State Warriors.

The Kevin Durant addition to the warriors makes the team a “Super Team” who already a great team from the past two season where they actually hold an NBA Record of 73 wins and 9 loss in NBA Regular Season.

GSW are the highly favorite team to win the Western Conference all through the NBA Finals but the real question is who will sacrifice more in the addition of Durant? Will it be the upcoming superstar Draymond Green? Klay Tompson or the reigning two time MVP Stephen Curry?

Kevin Durant was drafted in 2007 by Seattle Supersonic, better known now as the Oklahoma City Thunder, after playing from (2008-2016) with the OKC, Durant became a free agent and decided to join the Warriors in a two year deal.

Many sports analyst criticize the decision of Kevin Durant after joining an already a powerhouse team GSW. Many believe that he badly wanted to win an NBA Title and to pursue that dream he must leave OKC and join the warrior’s.

If predictions are correct? In this 2016-2017 NBA Season the warriors and the cavs are the favorite to face once again in the NBA Finals for the 3rd consecutive years and the warriors are the favorite to win the NBA Title but don’t count out the king and the cavs they just recently dethroned and upset the warriors in the recent 2015-2016 NBA Finals after falling in the series 1-3.
