With the number of mobilephone ownership outnumbering it’s population, the Philippines could easily be said to be a lead adapter among the world’s mobile generation of users!
And SM Cyberzone, the gadgets and technology retail enabler of SM Supermalls, acknowledges this and have continually supported the growing industry with this weekend’s SM Cyberzone Mobile Fest 2018 finale!
A Weekend of Mobile Technology Festival
SM Cyberzone Mobile Fest is a festival of the latest smartphones in the market to let consumers experience the gadgets first hand!
Leading the pack of mobile phone exhibitors were the eye-cathing booths of VIVO and OPPO right in front of the registration entrance, underscoring their newest flagship smart phones – the Vivo X21 and OPPO Find X, respectively.
But the ASUS Philippines booth also caught Gadget Gambit‘s eye featuring their battery king Asus Max Pro 1M and Zenfone Live L1.
On the other hand, and even as a non-mobile phone exhibitor, JBL‘s booth clearly stands out with it’s see-through ‘cube‘ “Listening Room‘.
I wasn’t able to ask the staff what it’s officially called, but inside, customers can have an immersive experience of listening to JBL‘s latest gadgets, bluetooth headsets, bluetooth speakers including the waterproof ones, technology, and more.
Concurrently, JBL is also holding a special gadget-sale exclusive to the SM Cyberzone Mobile Fest 2018 such as the JBL Go Bluetooth Speaker which is on sale at only Php 1,199!
There were also booths of Huawei‘s Honor smartphone which is now a stand alone brand on its own, Memo Express, Cherry Mobile, Smart, Samsung, Motorola, and Barangay 143.
Geek Talks, Fun Activities, and More
We were also able to catch Tech Blogger friends Alora Uy Guerrero of Revu and Mark Macanas of TechPinas.com on stage talking about the features of Vivo X21.
Macanas and Guerrero mentioned that there are two ways to unlock the Vivo X21, through the Face ID Access with Infrared that accurately identifies a user’s facial features even in nighttime and the In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology that replaces the rear fingerprint sensor. Vivo is the industry pioneer of In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology.
Aside from pioneering features, the pair also talked about Vivo X21’s photography-related specs. The 12 MP+5MP dual rear camera and the 12MP front camera with Dual Pixel Sensor. These impressive hardware specs are even boosted by the X21’s AI features like the AI Face Beauty and AI HDR.
ASUS Philippines also partnered with vlogger and YouTube sensation, Shekainah “Shek” Chen – better known for her lifestyle channel, Shek’s Diary. Popular for her content on her daily activities, Shek gave her own tips and tricks to becoming a vlogger and also shared her thoughts on what more can the ZenFone Live L1 offer not only as an amazing smartphone but also as an aspiring content creator’s best friend.
SM Cyberzone Mobile Fest 2018 also featured “Photo Spots” for your instagram feeds, “Mobile Gaming” sections where you can participate in the challenges and win prizes, “Tune Zone“, and “Exclusive Deals” to buy your favorite gadgets at awesome discounts!
