Selfies just got better with the F1s OPPO unveils its latest selfie expert

OPPO's F1s knocks the selfie game out of the park without leaving the mid-end price point.

Competition in the smartphone industry has never been this intense, with high-spec offerings entering the market left and right, often with costs to match. The first iteration of the OPPO F1 came straight out of the company's mid-end bracket with an impressive feature set that drew attention to its great camera software and its equally powerful front-facing camera.

Following the release of the F1 and F1 Plus, rising mobile tech giant OPPO is back with the F1s—a new model that packs stronger firepower than its predecessors without the premium pricing.

Visually, the F1s continues along the line of previous OPPO units, with the use of thin, nicely rounded bezels and the prominent white colorway of its predecessors. That's where the similarities end, though.

How OPPO’s F1 series gave us the ultimate selfie experience

Why do people love taking selfies?

The invention of the compact camera in 20th century gave people a portable and fairly cost-effective way to capture and preserve memorable parts of their lives. With the meteoric rise of the smartphone and current ubiquity of social networking, people now have more ways to highlight and share these unforgettable moments.

The relative ease of documenting oneself has led to the rise of the selfie on social media, and it doesn't look like the phenomenon will simmer down any time soon.

Mabuhay Pokemon Go!

Yes after that long wait since the global release, Pokemon Go is finally here in the Philippines which was activated on August 6, 2016. And the servers went crazy with all of the people downloading the game on the Play Store and App Store unto their phones and went on their Pokemon journey to be the very best like no one was ever was.

Just less than a day, despite the traffic and stressful Saturday, people went out and explored the "vast outdoors" (even within the city) in search of Pokemon of the 1st generation. Since it is handheld and would require location, players are always advised about the surroundings which should always be the priority. Even the MMDA issued their own statement in safety with Pokemon Go.

And it does not end there, days before the launch several companies are also using this opportunity to get hooked with customers. Such as buying pokecoins using your Paymaya card. Globe and Smart offers free 7 days of Pokemon Go using the Switch App (Globe).  Grab has also announced a special code for their patrons. SM also joined in the craze with a prize for people catching them on SM Superrmalls.

Whether it’s an artistic shot, a glam pic, or a duckface, the selfie is a way of celebrating different aspects of “who you are.”

“Selfies offer the opportunities to show facets of yourself, such as the artsy side, the silly side, or the glamorous side,” Rutledge said.
