LG G5: The next smartphone superstar is here with groundbreaking technology

The Mobile World Congress was blown away last February 2016 when LG Electronics first unveiled the playful LG G5 and Friends, the latest addition to the global technology innovator’s renowned G Series. This breakthrough innovation bagged a record-breaking number of 33 awards at what is known to be the mobile industry’s ‘Oscars’.

Two months later, the celebrated smartphone found its way to the Philippines, making its debut in a grand launch in Shangri-La at the Fort.

Play More with LG G5

The prestigious event was graced by a number of prominent personalities such as Phil and James Younghusband, Ginger Conejero and more. Throughout the program, LG G5 and Friends were given ample praise by different industry experts: Qualcomm Southeast Asia Regional Head Mantosh Malhotra for the G5’s power-packed hardware, music DJ Jessica Milner for the Hi-Fi Plus with B&O Play sound accessory, and lifestyle-travel blogger Chuckie Dreyfus for the 360 CAM accessory.

Celebrity parents Doug and Cheska Kramer showed the audience why they love the LG G5 and Friends through their Rolling Bot video demonstration with their kids and pet dog. And to reinforce G5’s message “Life’s Good When You Play More”, comedic video blogger Wil Dasovich presented his collaboration with LG through a heart-warming CSR project conducted for the children at the Philippine Children Medical Center (PCMC). 

Unique Modular Design and Industry-Leading Camera

LG G5 sports the brand’s first-ever Modular Type design, encased in a sleek metal aluminum body and a Slide-out Battery which can easily swap a depleted battery with a fully charged one. Complete with LG Friends, a collection of companion devices, the G5 can be transformed into a digital camera, Hi-Fi player and more.

Reflecting LG’s longstanding reputation as a leader in smartphone cameras, the LG G5 has two cameras on the rear: one with a standard 78-degree lens and another with a 135-degree wide angle lens, the widest available in any smartphone. The 135-degree lens on the LG G5 offers a viewing angle that is approximately 1.7 times wider than those of existing smartphone cameras and 15 degrees wider than the human eye’s field of view. The wide angle lens makes it easier for users to capture more landscape, taller buildings or larger groups without having to position oneself further from the subject.

LG G5’s unmatched camera qualities are further enhanced with powerful photo effects including Pop-out Picture, Film Effect and Auto Shot. Pop-out Picture combines images taken by the standard and wide angle lens to create a picture-in-a-frame effect. Film Effect can apply nine different film emulators to an image while Auto Shot is an enhanced camera UX which automatically captures the perfect selfie shot when a face is recognized.

Zenfone 2 Laser 5.0

ASUS gives a new smartphone experience with ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0

This just-released smartphone innovation from ASUS packs in even more heavyweight features, making it the perfect successor to last year’s best-selling ZenFone 5

Asus Zenfone 2 Laser 5.0

The search for that elusive perfect mobile phone can be a long and challenging one,  as every smart phone user would know. But if ASUS’ globally leading brand value and countless international and local awards this year alone is any sign of its prowess in product innovation, then one need not look far to finally find the smart phone attuned to his multi-hyphenated lifestyle.

As one of its latest mobile unit offerings, ASUS successfully introduced the ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0 (ZE500KL), a smart phone that perfectly embodies the brand’s commitment to put extra premium on both user experience and innovation – what with its several unparalleled key features – while widely considering its value for money (SRP: PHP 7,295.00).

This year’s best value smart phone from ASUS

Undeniably, ASUS’ most notable mobile unit innovation during 2014 was the best-selling ZenFone 5 – a marvelous smart phone that stood out due to its then unmatched performance. But being the global powerhouse company that it is known to continuously push the envelope of product solutions, ASUS then soon after picked up from the success of the ZenFone 5, raising the bar this year even further by upgrading these features and just recently introducing the even more remarkable ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0 – now significantly equipped with features that one has never quite experienced in a smartphone before.

Blazingly Fast Auto-Focus with Focus Speed of Up to 0.03 Seconds

ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser 5.0’s rear camera has laser autofocus technology for the fastest possible clarity. Its infrared laser measures distances at lightning speed – and that means near-instant focus as fast as only 0.03 seconds. Compared with traditional contrast focus, ZenFone 2 Laser is easily in the lead by up to 2X faster speed, wherein the infrared laser gets the most accurate distance of the object and the lens simply accelerates itself to the precise position for the imaging. 

Ultimate screen protection — Corning Gorilla Glass 4

The ZenFone 2 Laser‘s display comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection against accidental damages. This also makes ZenFone 2 Laser the only smartphone with the best screen protection at this price range.

The Gorilla Glass 4 is much stronger than its third generation of Gorilla Glass 3 in many perspectives: its display offers twice (2X) the drop-damage resistance of its predecessor, a 2.5X increase in retained strength and is 85% less likely to break in daily use — making it safer and stronger than ever before.
