In Line with Chinese New Year, Vivo launched CNY Photo Contest

To celebrate the Chinese New Year this 2018, Vivo launched a special photo contest but first involving a few well-known lifestyle bloggers for a first taste. Held last February 3 and 4 at Binondo in Manila, Vivo invited 18 lifestyle bloggers forn eventful photowalk around the oldest China town in the world. Bloggers were asked to capture photos that embody the Chinese culture may it be the food, the ambiance, the traditional lucky ornaments, or Binondo’s old charm as a whole.  Bloggers enjoyed taking photos with their Vivo smartphone because of its known first-rate features: the 24MP front camera for perfect CNY celebration selfies complemented by the camera’s HDR mode for stunning images with dramatic shadowing and highlights and the portrait bokeh for added aesthetics. The professional mode, which mimics the manual mode of DSLR cameras, allows users to adjust the exposure, white balance, ISO, and focus mode creating creative photos. Vivo’s signature Face Beauty spec ensures that anyone’s selfie game is flawless with its natural face enhancements. The Ultra HD mode takes hi-resolution photos at 9216×6192 (64MP), allowing for shots with very clear details. Lastly, bloggers were able to come together for a good group shot with the Groufie technology which boasts of a panorama-panning effect for big group shots without leaving anyone out.

The two-day Binondo photowalk with the bloggers was a special promotional event to get the bloggers’ followers to join Vivo’s Chinese New Year (CNY) Photo Contest where a participant needs to take the best Chinese New Year-inspired photos and upload them in their Instagram account for a chance to win a brand-new Vivo V7+.

The bloggers’ photowalk for Vivo’s CNY Photo Contest proved to be a success as entries numbering to more than 200 have been uploaded on Instagram by February 14.  Out of all the entries, the top four best creative photos were chosen by the participating lifestyle bloggers with one winner announced during the Chinese New Year celebrations last February 16 at the Lucky Chinatown Mall. At the event, Vivo showcased the Chinese New Year-inspired photos in a special photowall. Vivo’s official mascot Little V entertained the crowd with a dance rendition of the hit song 24k. Later, Vivo awarded the Chinese New Year Photo Contest winner Angela Palacio for her photo of her Vivo V5 capturing an illuminated stretch of red Chinese lanterns.

Known as a selfie-centric phone, the V7+ perfects all shots for clearer selfies with its 24MP front-facing camera and a 16MP rear-facing camera—one of the industry’s firsts. With the V7+ 24MP front-facing camera photos come out clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking. Likewise, the 16MP rear camera, with its 64MP UHD that can produce detailed quality photos, blurred shots are a thing of the past. Night shots using the camera’s professional mode make photos come out are perfectly clear.

Moreover, the V7+ offers a face beauty feature for Vivo calls, so anyone is always ready to take a video call anytime, any day. When in a dimly-lit environment, Selfie Softlight goes to work offering soft but flattering illumination.

Vivo V7+ does an awesome job with selfies. With the Bokeh mode, selfie photos come out with a tinge of creativity. Backgrounds are blurred to emphasize the main subject of the photo

Augmented visual experience with the all-screen display

Smartphone fans are raving about the V7+’s 5.99” all-screen display with its 84.4% screen to body ratio, providing a more exciting and enhanced game and visual experience. You can maximize the whole screen even more with the option to remove navigation buttons completely simply with the slide of a finger and enjoy a 12.5% viewing area.

Enjoy an action-packed game experience

The V7+ rocks the latest OS. Heavy game players can benefit from the V7+ as it packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon Octacore processor, making playing of heavy games enjoyable and smooth-running. The V7+ 4GB ROM allows user to multi-task, open multipole applications without the worry of lagging and with the special Game Mode feature, disturbing the current game play with app notifications is never a problem. The Game Mode of the phone also allows for uninterrupted game play while taking a phone call at the same time. The all-screen display of the V7+ makes the visual experience while playing games truly optimal.

Vivo’s V7+ rocks all the outstanding features. However, in terms of quality anchored to affordability, the Vivo V7+ definitely wins.

Vivo in our Hearts

To celebrate the holiday in true Filipino Christmas spirit, Vivo Philippines releases a special holiday video depicting a touching story of a widow, her children, and a husband and father they lost in a war.

The story revolved around a grieving wife and mother who tends to her small children on a Christmas eve when a group of carolers offered a rendition of ‘Silent Night’ outside their home. Laden with gifts and noche buena food, the carolers were then welcomed inside the home of the aggrieved family only for the former’s emotions to be stirred by a solitary portrait of the father of the home—a soldier who perished fighting for peace.

The Vivo special Christmas video is an instant hit amongst the family-oriented Filipinos, garnering 781,000 views, 4,212 shares and almost 41,000 likes within six days after its release on Vivo Philippines’ official Facebook page. Because of its theme centered on family, Christmas, togetherness, and gratitude, Vivo’s special Christmas video hits home for many Filipinos. The comments section abounds with emotional sentiments with messages of gratitude for the soldiers who fought to re-establish peace in Marawi. Some of the comments even expressed gratitude to Vivo for “giving [the audience] an avenue to thank the ones who enabled them to celebrate Christmas in peace.” “very meaningful and heartwarming! a tribute to all our soldiers and father! hats off to Vivo management for making this short film.”

Vivo, by way of the special Christmas video, shares and celebrates what a truly meaningful Christmas for Filipinos. Family, togetherness, empathy, and the spirit of giving make a Filipino Christmas like no one else in the world.

ATC x Preview Editor’s Closet November 11-15

Shop like a Preview Editor and get the latest pieces this season, Preview magazine in collaboration with Alabang Town Center got you covered, This season trends are DENIM, POLKA DOTS, KNIT, 70s and Folk.

The previous ATC X Preview Editor’s Closet was also located at ATC’s Activity Center and every area there was a designated genre of clothing. For this year, is the same concept except that Preview pinpointed this season trends that we’ve been seeing recently in magazine covers and the runways. Personally, I see lots of Denim and 70s style revived lately. Then especially now its winter we’ll  be seeing lots of knits. 

It still has that cozy vibe while shopping, every area is in distinctively designed and Instagram-worthy accordingly. This year I noticed there were more accessories displayed. People might expect high end brands but there are also local brands that made it! Speaking of local brands, a lot them are stepping up their game and matching with the high end brands. These brands are able to follow trends and style that millenials and gen Z would really like. There are affordable pieces, if you patiently look around because different brands are distributed in each genre. You may spot pieces from P500 and above. 

I do agree that ATC is the best venue at the South, growing up at ATC I’ve seen a lot of posh and well dressed shoppers. Not like for fashion week glamour  but like well put together that seem classic and chic.

How the Vivo V7+ Fits Maris Racal’s Lifestyle

Newest Vivo influencer Maris Racal has sure gone a long way from her first TV stint as one of the teen housemates of Pinoy Big Brother All In where she eventually placed second to the season’s Big Winner Daniel Matsunaga. Known for her sweet singing voice earning her the title “Singing Sunshine ng Davao”, Maris or Mariestella in real life grew up in a musically-inclined family and is also part of a sing-and-dance all-girl group in home network ABS-CBN.

Maris has already a few accomplishments under her belt as a budding celebrity, but she still considers her recent Vivo endorsement a dream come true. “I have always wanted to [endorse a phone brand],” Maris says in a brief interview held in between photo shoots for the top smartphone brand. “That is why when my handler told me [that I have been chosen to endorse Vivo], I was so happy.”

Maris was introduced as one of the Vivo influencers at the launch of the young and hip global smartphone brand’s latest pride the V7+. She is part of the fresh roster of Vivo endorsers known collectively as the Vivo Family. On top of being an independent talent, Maris also makes up half of the “Marni go” love team with Inigo Pascual, another Vivo influencer and member of the pioneer batch of the Vivo Family. The twosome was formed by chance when the duo made headlines when they performed onstage for Inigo’s digital concert.

Apart from being part of “Marnigo”, Maris has a lot of good things on her plate and all the highlights of her days can now be preserved in memories through her own Vivo V7+. “I look super fresh [in my selfies] even without make-up,” she happily remarks, swearing by the selfie-taking prowess of the Vivo V7+. The V7+ boasts of one of the world’s first 24MP 24MPclearer selfie, front facing camera with LED flash and smart photography algorithms provides for a clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking photo. To further enhance photos, the V7+ packs in a built in Bokeh effect which creates an aesthetic quality of out of focus blur in photos.

Being a musician herself, Maris is also thrilled over the V7+’s fully-upgraded AK4376A Hi-Fidelity audio chip. This V7+ feature supports the latest sound technology and levels up mobile audio technology, enabling any music lover to enjoy rich and full rhythms. This audio chip also plays music which answers to the mood or scenario at hand.

Maris will be part of a series of Vivo V7+ mall shows alongside love team Inigo Pascual and other Vivo Family members. The four-month mall tour which commenced last September will heavily endorse the Vivo V7+ with fun-packed activities and performances from the Vivo Family; the tour will be doing the rounds until the end 2017.

Female millennials can consume tips and lifehacks from videos on beauty to articles on lifestyle and product reviews. Then there is a simple, fun way to buy them that is tied to the content and the community elements. iamClaire. users can also create accounts, post content, connect with other iamClaire. members, and essentially create their own online buying experience.     

“iamClaire. is about joining a community, a sisterhood that stands for positive transformation, about becoming a better you,” explains Liam Mendoza, vice president and chief operating officer, ALTUS Digital Capital.
