It’s the most wonderful time of the year! We see houses decorated with Christmas ornaments and colourful lights. The climate shifts to a cooler temperature and everybody seems to be in a great mood. We all know that Christmas is the season for giving so we came up with a list of tech that would make for a great gift.
This is list is in no particular order. We figured that we could kind of separate it into different categories. Without further ado, here we go:
With a lot of consoles being kind of pricey, finding an affordable gaming system can be tough. However, Nintendo has something for gamers. No, it is not the Nintendo Switch but it is a portable system. Enter the Nintendo 2DS which goes for just PHP 6,995.
The 2DS is a more affordable version of the Nintendo 3DS and 3DS XL. As the name implies, the 3D feature is now out of the picture. In addition to that, they went away from the clam-shell design that the 3DS became known for.
The form factor of the 2DS is surprisingly comfortable in the hand. Yes, you cannot put it in your pocket but you can still put it in your backpack and it will not take too much space. It can still also play all of the 3DS games (except for the titles specifically made for the New 3DS XL). So you have an great library of games including Pokemon X & Y, Pokemon Sun & Moon, Super Mario Bros., Super Smash Bros., Monster Hunter 4 and more!
We all love our music! Pumping up the volume on a weekend in your room while you relax is just awesome. Therefore, you would need a great speaker. Meet the Tylex DY25 Bluetooth Speaker.
The Tylex DY25 Bluetooth Speaker is an affordable speaker retailing at PHP 1,295. It has stereo drivers that deliver great warm, full audio. It connects via Bluetooth 3.0 + EDR which works seamlessly with no hiccup. There are also other connectivity options such as the 3.55mm AUX port, USB port and microSD slot. There is also an FM Radio that can cover frequencies from 87.6 – 108 Mhz.
The 2,200 mAh battery can last for 3 – 6 hours depending on how you use it. At 60% volume, the DY25 lasted for 4 hours. There are also controls on top for play/pause, mode selection, next/previous and volume buttons.
We see that great phones are becoming cheaper while cheap phones are getting better. Case in point, we have the Cloudfone Excite Prime 2 which retails at PHP 5,999. It has a solid metal body with a 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass. It has a 5.5-inch HD IPS display that is considered the average size for smartphones nowadays.
It has a 64 Bit MT6737 quad core processor that is running at 1.3 Ghz. Along with that, it also has 3 GB of RAM with 32 GB of expandable storage of up to 128 GB via a dedicated microSD card slot. The battery capacity is pretty impressive as well with 3,000mAh battery.
The camera is one of the main attractions here. It has a 13 MP f/2.0 main camera with AF, time-lapse and LED flash. It also has a portrait mode which blurs the background of your subject which is the craze in 2017. The front camera has a specialized 8 MP sensor with beautify and softlight LED flash.
The rest of the specs are what you can expect like WiFi, LTE, Bluetooth, A-GPS and dual sim card slots. It is also running Android 7.0 Nougat.
These are three tech items that covers the major categories when it comes to tech savvy peeps. These items boasts their bang-per-buck value and we are sure that you won’t regret buying these for your loved ones.
