ASUS' latest contest "Directed By You" has already started and continuously inviting Filipino ASUS' fans to participate and be creative. Aside from the Philipines, ASUS has also invited other selected countries to join and show off those story making talents.

Join to contribute amusing and entertaining plot ideas that will be collected to produce a series of three video ads highlighting the new ZenFone 3. This “Directed By You” contest is the first campaign by a smartphone maker to create a series of crowdsourced ads, and was inspired by the first crowdsoured ZenFone 3 ad, the Alien and the Dinosaur (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=goh5ZPOr5NY), created from ideas provided by New Yorkers who were interviewed at random.


As the contest name implies, the “Directed By You” contest will involve fans submitting short stories that will be assembled into a complete plot for three video ads that will be produced by groups of professional filmmakers and artists and shot entirely using the ZenFone 3.
“We cannot wait to see the creativity and humor of our fans that will result from this contest,” said Erik Hermanson, Head of Mobile Brand and Marketing, ASUS. “It will be an interesting and entertaining international ‘social experiment’ to see the diversity of ideas,” he concluded.

To know more about this contest visit www.asus.com/event/directedbyyou/ph and get the how's and everything that you need to know about the mechanics of the contest. This contest started last November 8, 2016 and will run for three weeks with different theme each week and with key words everyday. Of course prizes awaits for the winners, so stop whining and start grinding your brains to have some colorful and interesting plots.

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
  • Alcatel Pop 3 runs on Android Lollipop OS with a 5.1 version that gives enough power to run games and movies for entertainment needs of today individual.
  • 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. The display is a capacitive screen with a 5 points touch capability. The color of every pics is great with the device’s Colorize Technology.
  • With regards to its camera, it comes with a front and rear camera. The Rear camera produces 13 megapixel image quality while the front camera is 8 megapixel. The Rear camera is equipped with a LED flash for more clarity and it also comes with a video zoom for more focus feature. The Central Processing Unit or CPU of the devices is a 1.3 GHz Quadcore Chipset MTK6580 which gives the device a power to run games and movies.
  • For more storing capacity of unit it comes with an Internal Memory of 8GB ROM + 1GB RAM and it is expandable up to 32 GB of MicroSD. 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
      • UMTS 850/900/1900/2100

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.
