Today, there are lots of smartphone brands are coming out in the market and it has taken everyone into a gadget-craze individual who would love to have phones that matches their personality and need at the same time but of course don’t miss out the affordability of the product as well. Every brand speaks of what’s best with them and what product or model interests the public.

So, to give you readers a heads up of what’s interesting, the functionality of the devices to you and of course what most people sought first, its affordability. Not cheap but just right to shell out some of those moola out of your pockets.

Our product for this particular review is the Alcatel Pop 3 with a 5.5 inch screen display. We’ve known Alcatel for quite sometime already because it is one of the brands who’s been present in the Philippine market for mobile devices.


Alcatel Pop 3 is one of the leading model of the brand that answers the need of the masses and of today’s yuppies. Two things are addressed by the product, one is the entertainment where the feature of screen display comes and the other one is its affordability.

Specifications, Functions and Features

  • A 5.5” High Definition screen display with an IPS of 720 x 1280 pixels is just the right need for the viewing pleasure of today’s gadget-seeker individual.

Its battery life span is just enough to let you enjoy your games and movie entertainment. The battery unit is a 2910 mAh and is embedded into the unit. I’m not sure with advantages and disadvantages of the having batteries embedded or not but what I know is that you don’t have to bother yourself removing it.
  • Connectivity wise it comes with the common connectivity settings
      • GSM 850/900/1800/1900

Design

The device is Black leather colored and designed stylishly for easy grip with a definitive size of 151 x 77.8 x 8.8 mm size to just exactly be hold by your hands without compromising the size of the screen display. With its weight of 170g it won’t bother you much carrying it around.
Conclusion and Recommendation

When it comes to affordability the devices is just right on the pocket for individuals looking for a smartphone that will suit their lifestyle. Since this generation is a generation of games, movies and selfies the Alcatel Pop 3 is one devices that gives its user to be in the “in” thing.

The devices can run games like Clash of Clans and the like but of course don’t overload the devices with so many games as its RAM can only hold up to 1GB so loading it up can slows down the operating capacity of the devices which can cause lagging.

Sound quality is a little bit compromise but is good enough for listening pleasure. It may not be as boombastic compared to its competitor but is clear enough to hear whispers of from movies you are watching.

 

Not sure with the charging time or maybe the electrical socket is defective or something but it takes almost 4 hours to fully charge the unit. For individuals who’s always on the go, this is a little bit off of their need.
Summing it all the Alcatel Pop 3 Smartphone device is one of the cool and affordable gadget to have if you’re saving up some money for something else. Still, it keeps the user to be stylish and on the “in” thing when it comes to features and functions like its 13 Megapixel rear and 8 Megapixel front camera plus its 5.5 screen display.

Today Acer extends its Chromebook lineup with the Acer Chromebook R 13, the industry’s first convertible Chromebook with a 13.3-inch display. The new Chromebook R 13 features a flexible design with a large 13.3-inch screen that can be used in a number of different modes including as a tablet thanks to its 360-degree hinges. Up to 12 hours1 of battery life provides all-day productivity and fun. Plus, the Chromebook will provide additional capabilities thanks to planned support for Android apps via the Google Play™ Store. “The 13-inch touch display is large and vibrant, so it’s ideal for anything from homework and spreadsheets to games, video and fun apps, said James Lin, General Manager, Commercial & Detachable Notebooks, IT Products Business at Acer. “Plus, up to 12 hours of battery life means our customers can use it at school or work and continue using it into the evening for activities like homework and watching movies.”

The Chromebook R 13 is the latest addition to Acer’s convertible Chromebook lineup following the successful 11-inch Acer Chromebook R 11. Like its predecessor, the Chromebook R 13 transitions fluidly between four usage modes – laptop, pad, display and tent – so that customers can stay productive and entertained in a range of settings.

According to data from Gartner , Acer Group is the world’s leading Chromebook brand with over 33 percent market share in 2015.

Large Touch Screen Surrounded by Sleek Design

The Acer Chromebook R 13 features a 13.3-inch touch-screen high-brightness Full HD display with 1920x1080 resolution and IPS technology to provide vivid colors and sharp images and text. The LED-backlit LCD also delivers wide-viewing angles so students and family members can use it in tandem for group projects, sharing videos, and more.

The display provides integrated 10-point touch capabilities that support Tap, Swipe and Pinch-to-Zoom gestures so any web page or app can benefit. The display is complemented by an HD webcam (1280x720 resolution) with High Dynamic Range imaging and 720p HD audio/video recording and an integrated microphone for webchats. HD audio with dual built-in speakers placed on the lower portion and sides of the Chromebook perfectly complements the display for first-rate entertainment.

The Acer Chromebook R 13’s large display makes the most of the system’s compact design, allowing it to slip easily into book bags and backpacks. It weighs only 1.49kg (3.28 pounds) and sports a thin profile of 326W x 228D x 15.5H mm (12.83W x 8.98D x 0.61H inches).

Long Battery Life and Exceptional Performance for Work and Play

Delivering up to 12 hours of battery life, the Chromebook R 13 gives consumers the freedom to stay productive, connected and entertained for longer. The device is powered by a MediaTek M8173C CorePilot™ quad-core processor for solid every day performance, and also connects quickly via 2x2 MIMO 802.11ac wireless technology.

The Chromebook R 13 has a USB Type-C port that allows fast data transfers, connection to a high-resolution external display, and to charge the device or provide power to other peripherals. It also includes USB 3.0, HDMI, Bluetooth 4.0, microphone and headphone jacks.

The Acer Chromebook R 13 will be available in several configurations, either with 64GB, 32GB or 16GB eMMC storage and 4GB of dual channel LPDDR3 SDRAM .

Four Modes to Fulfil Needs at Work or at Play

The Chromebook R 13 is equipped with Acer’s patented 360-degree dual-torque hinges that allow the display to be folded back to any degree that the situation requires. The dual-torque hinges also stabilize the display when touchscreen controls are being used and while switching between four modes:

  • Laptop mode keeps the display at 90-degrees from the keyboard for an efficient and productive input and typing experience.
  • Display mode bends the keyboard under the system so the display is closer to the viewer. When the Chromebook R 13 is put in this position, the on-screen image auto-rotates to the correct viewing orientation. 
  • Tent mode provides an ideal viewing and touch experience in confined spaces such as when traveling on a plane or train.
  • Pad mode allows the Chromebook to be used as a tablet with the display and keyboard touching, so customers can have an enjoyable way to play, share and browse in both landscape and portrait orientations.

Chrome is Secure, Easy to Use and Share in Different Modes

The Acer Chromebook R 13 is the ideal device for a range of customers who view, edit, create and collaborate in programs such as Microsoft Office Online documents and Google Docs. Chromebooks are simple to use and ideal for sharing by multiple users, since users can log into their own account to access Docs, website bookmarks and other information. Storage on Google Drive protects files, documents, and photos safely in the cloud, and ensures that the most current version of the file or document is always available and safe, even if the Chromebook is lost or stolen. Security is a key benefit of Chromebook, as it’s automatically updated to guard against ever-changing online threats. In addition, the Supervised Users feature helps get customers online in a safe, controlled way.
