From a We Are Social’s Digital Report in January 2015, the Philippines lead in average “Time Spent on the Internet” through laptop and desktop, and one of the highest via mobile worldwide. From a global average of 4.4 hours/day, the Filipino spends an average of 6.3 hours/day online via laptop and 3.3 hours/day via mobile. Even without knowing these numbers, though, it’s easy to see the Pinoy’s love for the digital lifestyle. From the daily fan worldwide trending on Twitter to the massive amounts of selfies done in Manila (not to mention the astounding readership we have on the site!), we crave for the online content whether we create it or consume it. That being said, it’s no doubt we’re unashamedly hungry for the next best gadget that powers our digital lifestyle.
Last April 17, 2015, Samsung officially launched their flagship device, the Galaxy S6, at the Mega Fashion Hall. Whatever your online persona, whether you create (blogger, photographer, vlogger, writer, etc.) or consume (researcher, fan, reader, listener, etc.) the content of the Internet we all love, this all new and powerful gadget is tailor-fit for all your digital needs and wants.
3 Features that Make the New Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Fit for Your Digital Lifestyle
3. The Camera that “Beats the iPhone 6”
Forbes recently published a feature on the gadget noting that the all-powerful camera has given the much-admired iPhone 6 camera specs a run for its money saying that the S6’s forward and rearward-facing camera “in almost every situation performs better”. The camera is fully customizable, with settings fit for both the trigger-happy and the pro on the go.
In any case, the photos you upload on Instagram or the moments you share on Snapchat will be of top quality.
2. The Screen that Makes Worlds Come Alive
Whether you’re watching your favorite movie or streaming a live cast, the astounding resolution and vivid colors come alive through the 5.1 inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen. The “infinity pool” feel of the S6 Edge, pretty much like the beautiful new borderless television sets in the market today, gives you an astounding viewing experience.
While you’re on it, why don’t you go download HOOQ, too? If you’re familiar with Netflix, HOOQ is an amazing video-on-demand app that gives you access to over thousands of international and local (yes, those old Filipino movies with funny titles we love) movies and TV series.
1. The Charging Technology that Wastes No Time
We all push our phones to the limit these days, but the super features and remarkable connectivity mean nothing when you’re on 5% by the middle of the day. The S6 wastes no time, with its fast charging feature, 10 minutes of charging time gets you at least 4 hours more of battery life. This comes in handy especially when you’re pretty much wall hugging at a café or airport or when forgot to charge the night before and have only a few minutes to spare before you head out. In about 40 minutes, you’ve already come to about 75%.
The question now is: do you get it on prepaid or postpaid? Like the battery life that keeps on going, you’d want something that gives you no limits especially with data. We’re all well aware that postpaid has long said goodbye to the unli promos and have replaced consumable data plans. Before you shut down the idea, there’s a new postpaid plan called the “myLifestyle Plan” that gives you unlimited access to your favorite apps through “lifestyle packs” so you don’t have to worry about consuming allocated data because of your regular activities. The more packs you get from the Globe myLifestyle plan, the better the price for this much-coveted device. Plan 999 on the myLifestyle Plan, for example, not only gets you unli calls and text but also unli access to Viber, Spotify Premium and GoSURF 99 for the new Samsung Galaxy S6 with cash-out of only P19,800. For Plan 2499, you get the gadget for FREE.
