Tech Review: LGG6 vs. LGQ6

I got on my hands @LGPhilippines precious babies, the LGG6 and LGQ6

G6 was launched early this year then here comes the latest and most affordable unit the Q6. In comparison, the G6 is the high end model compared to the Q6. Meaning more features for the G6, but the Q6 is not a far from it. Same functions and gestures that you’re used with. It differs in resolution of the camera, video, sounds and display.  

PRICE

For those who opt for a more affordable phone the Q6 is your go to social media phone P 12, 990 then the G6 is P39,990 ish. SO Q6 WINS! 

DESIGN

The Q6 is lighter and smaller in size compared to the G6. The Q6 it can be mistaken as a regular smart phone but it is sleek with its curve and edges. The G6 is longer and has straight edges. In terms of weight Q6 wins but design G6 plus it has a FINGER PRINT SENSOR/SCANNER at the back.  

Q6 comes in metallic, gold and white. The G6 comes in black, metallic and white (I prefer BLACK).

LGG6                                     http://cdn.redmondpie.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/lgg6-1.jpg

My surprise the box/packaging for the Q6 is bigger than the G6 hmmm? In the compartment you get the charger, USB Cable, earphones and manuals. 

BOTH ARE WATER RESISTANT.  

CAMERA

LG photos comes best when there is natural light. 

With the LG phone it comes with built in filters, you can adjust the skin tone and lighting like on instagram, but G6 has a special feature you can take your selfie without checking it – the screen splits into 2 its the SQUARE CAMERA APPLICATION. Another special feature on the G6 on the SQUARE CAMERA APPLICATION – MATCH SHOT, SNAP SHOT, GUIDE SHOT (This is for taking food shots and flatlays) AND GRID SHOT. CLICK < MODE (It is on the upper left corner) once you start on the app.  

use GUIDE SHOT MODE on SQUARE CAMERA APP  for taking food shots and flatlays
taking selfies with the LG phones by adjusting the skin tone, lighting and choose from unique filters

Q6: 13MP Rear Camera With LED Flash & 5MP Front Facing Camera

G6: 13 MP wide angle  (125 degrees) & 13MP Standard (F 1.8)
5 megapixel front-facing camera

 LGQ6 (LEFT) & LGG6 (RIGHT)

LGG6 (UP) & LGQ6 (DOWN)

When it comes to the rear camera both are good in taking photos but when it comes to selfies G6 is better than Q6. 

PHONE’S VIDEO RESOLUTION

LG gives of a more vibrant feel when it comes to watching videos and it is more contrasting compared to other smart phones. The G6 AND Q6 are equal on this but when it comes to screen size it’s better to watch on the G6 since it has a  5.7” Quad HD Full Vision display 2880 x 1440 (564 ppi) 18:9 screen aspect ratio compared to the Q6 that is 5.5. inch.

SOUND

When it comes to sounds whether it be headset or loudspeaker LG is the best at it. The G6 is way louder than the Q6 when I compared it playing the exact video. Q6 is like good for one person when its on loudspeaker.

The LG can adapt to any earphones whether it be its very own or other earphone/headphone brand. 

BATTERY LIFE

In terms both have long battery life, way longer than Iphone. The G6 I tried not using it for a week with no data or wifi it is still functioning. Nice one Q6!

tour, filming against iconic backdrops in Taipei, Manila and Kuala Lumpur. Various
popular Asian artists, including singers, actors and models will join Cosentino as he
performs his spell-binding stunts, creating a raft of “how did he do that?” moments.
Cosentino has quickly become a global star within the magic industry. He is a
multiple winner of the prestigious Merlin Award (magic’s version of the Academy
Awards) including acknowledgement as the ‘International Magician of the Year’ and
the ‘International Escape Artist of the Year’.
Virginia Lim, Senior Vice President and Head of Content, Production and Marketing,

Great Beauty Finds at the Korean Product Festival

Early August, at the SMX SM AURA was a 3- day celebration of the Korean Product Festival. I’m not K-drama obsess but I am definitely a fan of Korean Beauty Products. Have you seen the skin of the Koreans? So here is a list of products I found interesting during the Festival. 

  1. Air Volume Tox – SY MEDIPHARM

2. MOISTIE TOK / MOISTIE CELL – PURACELL KOREA

Spontaneous Travel to HongKong with a Passport Valid for Less than 6 Months

Our recent trip to Hong Kong wasn’t actually planned, It was my birthday week and we decided to book a day before our flight. We decided days before my birthday because of family commitments that would fall near my actual birthday. – It’s fine, This is the second time I got to spend my special day abroad with my family. The first was at Dubai (4 days after my birthday), that was my first post as a blogger and I found out that I passed the board exam.

Well weeks before I’ve inquired to Cathay Pacific and Philippine Immigration, I have a concern regarding my passport, if I can travel to Hong Kong because my passport is less than 6 months valid – It is okay BUT it depends on the AIRLINE/IMMIGRATION  here in the Philippines they may weigh in your situation it may be travelling with family for as long you have documents that you are employed or that you have no plans to stay there more than intended.

THOUGH According to IMMIGRATION OF HONG KONG  – In general, all visitors to Hong Kong must have a passport that is valid for at least one month after the period of their intended stay in Hong Kong. However, documents issued to stateless persons must be valid for a minimum of two months after the period of intended stay. Please contact the Immigration Department for further details

Hong Kong may be linient compared to the Philippines, but I suggest call the airline first.

Hong Kong is already common for Pinoys to visit since its VISA FREE for PINOYS and its like 3 hour plane ride. What makes this blogpost different I would sort it out by using Hong Kong’s MTR (train)  map as a guide . It is very convenient to use their transport system. It’s okay to take a cab /Car service if you are in groups. Starting from the airport you can travel comfortably. Well we were in Hong Kong for just 3 days so I guess this is just the basic – I’ll definitely come back to explore.

  • TUNG CHUNG (Tung Chung Line – orange) – the famous cable car and the Buddha Mountain (Not sure). Unfortunately when we went there the cable cars were under renovation. So SAD 🙁
  • Sunny Bay (Tung Chung Line – orange) – This is your STOPOVER for you to hop on the train to Hong Kong Disney Land. You’ll love the Mickey Train

TIP: to buy CHEAPER tickets, head over to Central station there is a mall where all the Filipinos gather and look for an agency and avail tickets. It’s like 250 HK dollars I think. That’s why make sure you spend your entire that at HK disneyland because its your money’s worth. Ride all the rides and know the schedule of shows. 8PM is the famous fireworks display which is my favorite among all!

  • Tsim Tsa Tsui (Tsuen Wen Line – red ) – The shopping capital for the masses and a good walk to go to Harbour Bay. A friend recommended that I try KFCs egg tart (DELICIOUS).

    HARBOUR BAY
  • Mongkok  (Tsuen Wen Line – red ) – the famous WOMEN’S NIGHT  MARKET and SNEAKER STREET. If you guys are looking for affordable beauty products they have BONJOUR everywhere in different locations.

    Authentic Hotpot
  • Central  (Island Line – blue)- From our hotel at CAUSEWAY BAY this was our connecting train station to Tsim Tsam Tsui and MongKok (Red Line – Tsuen Wen Line) and Airport Express (Aqua Green).
  • Ocean Park (South Island Side – Yellow Lane) – Connecting from Admiralty (Island Line -Blue & South Island Line – Yellow)
  • Causeway Bay (Island line – blue) – This is the high end shopping capital and good places to get desserts For hotel, I highly recommend the hotel we stayed MINI HOTEL. It is a budget friendly minimalist boutique hotel – for great deals book at www.bookings.com

Saan aabot ang P1000 mo sa Tutuban Center?

Tutuban Center has the reputation of having the most affordable finds that’s why people continue patronize and bargain what they are looking for.

Years have past, Tutuban Center has developed and modernize despite that Pinoys still continue to patronize the tiangge because it is AFFORDABLE and CHEAP.

Since it’s back to school season plus the abnormal bedweather you can still shop and find great deals at Tutuban Mall with P1000. 

With P1000, I have to use my money wisely and within the budget so I decided to shop at the Tiangge for experience and put into the test my tawad skills (I’ll be giving recos). At the commercial area of the mall there are affordable finds to see also and boutiques to shop for but with the P1000 budget I personally feel I would get great deals at the Tiangge and it has been awhile since I did some shopping at the Tiangge – specific area THE PRIME BLOCK where the tiangge is loacted. The ground floor most of clothes, shoes, other fashion items and miscellaneous. The second floor – gowns, plants, toy stores and some boutiques same as ground floor.

First, in my mind and criteria in the list I have to shop for  “OOTD” ofcourse – a place I would recommend is called MURA DITO (far end of the tiangge but can be easily spotted), the name definitely catch my eye. Usually some fashion boutiques may have the basic and some maybe tacky but MURA DITO EXCEEDED my expectations on SERIOUS LEVELS. The clothes and fashion finds are all up to date and all in trend and the items are unlike other fashion boutiques in the tiangge were they have similar pieces. Mura Dito have pieces that are unusual but in trend. They have fashion pieces that they are the only ones who  this specific design trend. – AFFORD PA! 

I planned to get a denim jacket (for my recent HK trip) because it is trendy this summer but I was able to try this PINK DENIM jacket that suited me more than the classic acid wash denim color. For P350, I was a ble to bargain for it for P300 – such a good deal. The fabric is fit for the hot Asian weather and the fabric is LIGHT.  I would definitely come back to shop for more!

Next was shopping for SCHOOL SUPPLIES and GREAT DEALS – Definitely I would recommend just at the front of MURA DITO called ORIG NA MURA. Total of P600, I was able to find school supplies and great deals such as P20.00 Falsies set and a Insect spray that is MASSIVE for P110.00

AT Orig na mura, you have to leave your stuff but bring your valuables.  For back-to-school supplies (more of art supplies) I got for myself and my sisters I got like the sets of pens and paints at the cost of P100+ (Won’t go over P200+ like in other commercial bookstores). The paint brushes are like P6-P14 (depending on the size) and a correction tape that cost like P50. Plus I found a set of HAPPY BIRTHDAY letter candles for P50ish since its my birthday month!

Last on the list, I should get an item for rainy season, I needed to have slippers in my bag since work is working distance from home and don’t want to get my footwear puddled in mud. So I was able to find this slipper (crocs style ish with elevation) from a store in the NU-9 area (not for sure of the location but the owner of the spot manages also sells party supplies, super afford! the number balloons(medium size) are about P24 each compared to commercial stores that they sell for P60. 

There are a lots of boutiques in the tiangge worth going for and worth your money! For the fashionaistas they have everything from clothes, shoes and accessories you just need a budget and LOADS OF PATIENCE!

Things that 20 Something (-ish) Should Invest On #WisdomWednesday

 #WisdomWednesday

As I turn 24 years old this year, I’ve already mastered the art of PLAN A TO Z (hardly and striving). Seriously I suck at #adulting and I’ve had some realizations that I would really like to share to my readers. Plus, It would also be a constant reminder to myself that I would look back if I’ve barely made good decisions in my life, atleast I’m on track (That’s a first). If you guys are like me figuring things out – Don’t worry you’ll get there! It can be frustrating but that’s the thrill of life. DON’T FORCE IT and DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO. 

Since I’ve started working, I realized the value of things and that you can do anything you want (Basta enjoy lang) – especially to me while I’m still single HAHA

Here are my tips (I’m no expert tho but I’ve tried to sort things out that 20 something should not deprived themselves for)

1. Travel & adventure

While young, whatever thing is on your bucketlist – DO IT. Iba kasi ang energy pag young. I mean there is no age limit to enjoy life but taking advantage of our youth is one thing. Be in this Live in the moment and YOLO

GRAB EVERY OPPORTUNITY!

2. Good quality camera / smartphone with HD Camera

Thanks to the Digital age, we can store memories in HD and  always capturing those IG worthy moments.

3. Intimate wear (underwear & bras)

This I learned from my mom, as you get older you realize that it important to have a good set underwear and bra. It makes you feel mature & let’s say polished – plus the comfort. (Knock on wood hopefully it doesn’t happen) Incase of emergency and you get rushed to the Emergency Room atleast you have a good pair under when they have to cut your clothes.

4. Insurance / Policy / Stocks 

If only I could bring back time I would have started during college like from a part of my allowance would go to a monthly/semi/quarterly deposit. If I started at 17 and at 25 years old I should have enough money to travel across the world with the money I saved.

It’s still never too late – I just started mine a year ago and with my spending, I’m glad I have something at the side #Security If you have the means to buy properties  WHY NOT – for as long kaya mo maintain (huwag maging magyabang pag hindi kaya)

Always have SAVINGS on the side incase of emergency.

Tip: Do extensive research with what policy / investment plan you want.

5. Further education/vocational courses

There is no limit to education – always learn and be BETTER. Get your masters and learn something you’ve always wanted which is out of your comfort zone!

6. Skin care

I do love makeup! But its not all the time makeup will save you. Mas maganda pag natural yung glow. Invest in products and treatments “hiyang” for you. If you feel going under the knife – nobody is stopping you. (As long legit & safe)

Presenting yourself physically is always first. The inside is the most important but the outside/ physical beauty comes first.

BEAUTY MUST HAVE: sunscreen & moisturizer

7. Health

This is regarding FITNESS, invest in a gym or outdoor activity. Invest in supplements you may need also and EAT anything you want for as long its balance plus you work out 3-4 a week. Plus your every 6 month visit to your dentist too!

Lately, I LOVE CYCLING AND RPM 

8. Basic

To look good and put together, the basics should be available in your wardrobe – important fashion staple that doesn’t go out of style.

Keep it SIMPLE, CLASSY & MINIMALIST

9. Good relationships & connections

It doesn’t have to be ROMANTIC all the time, for me its investing in genuine people who has proven their worth to you. Spend time with people who don’t bring you down whether it be family and friends. These are the people you’ll lean towards to when you are down. Be open to meeting new people from all walks of life – but always trust your gut.

IN LIFE, It’s not what you know, it’s WHO you know.

10. CONCERTS / MUSICALS

It’s the most unexplained feeling – whenever I’m in a concert it brings this different joy and adrenaline.

DREAM DATE: CONCERT.

DREAM CONCERT: COACHELLA

11. A GOOD BAG (with HYGIENE KIT)

I’ve sorted out the kinds of bags I have: 

a. A minimalist backpack with lots of compartments – Good for school, work and travel plus you’ll be in style.

b. Luggage- especially for travel.

c. Casual Bag – I preferably use a medium size spacey bag with a sling since I always have a lot of things plus pairing the bag with a fashionable statement keychain piece.

d. Chain bag – Instead of bringing a clutch (sometimes I use clutch on various occasions) I prefer a black classy chain bag since I like bringing lots of stuff 

e. Gym bag

12. JOURNAL 

Proper time management and keep things up-to-date

13. A KILLER LIPPIE 

To add some pop of color to your face.

Lastly, THE BEST KIND OF INVESTMENT

14. Invest on yourself.

Take time to LOVE YOURSELF until you feel complete – Do what you need to do that would make you happy.
