Tech review: Tecno Pouvoir 4 budget smartphone

This week, we got the chance to review a new smartphone that’s perfect for the digitally inclined.

The new Tecno Pouvoir 4 is a stylish budget-friendly phone with a polycarbonate rear case in glossy Ice Jadeite finish that looks very cool and trendy. The package comes with jelly case, too, for added protection.

It boasts a 7-inch large screen with up to 400 nits of brightness, making it friendly to the eyes even when you use it under the sunlight. It also features a 1640 x 720 HD+ display that’s perfect for viewing videos up to 720p resolution — good enough for those who enjoy watching videos on YouTube or streaming shows and movies on Netflix and other platforms.

It’s complemented by a dual stereo speaker, which is a must have for smartphones these days. This is an important feature for those who enjoy playing mobile games, because they always have the tendency to block mono speakers while playing.

The Tecno Pouvoir 4 also comes with a quad camera setup, which takes clear and crisp photos.

Priced at P4,599, this phone is a good buy for basic users who use their smartphones mostly for social media and communication. It’s also good enough for distance learning students, who are in need of a handy device to stay in touch with their teachers and classmates and catch up with their virtual classes.

Here are the rest of Tecno Pouvoir 4’s specs:

  • 7-inch HD+ (1640 x 720) display

LG brings ‘Life In Details’ through its latest home entertainment lineup

Since getting married, my husband and I have only trusted LG for our home entertainment devices. The first 32-inch LCD TV we bought 10 years ago still works well to this day and could even put some of the latest models to shame.

Over the last few years, technology has evolved so fast that even the most high-tech features are quickly trickling down to consumers’ homes. LG is certainly no stranger to this as it leads innovation when it comes to TVs.

Its latest home entertainment headliner, the LG OLED GX TV uses screen technology with self-lit pixels that work independently to emit their own light. This allows for perfect black levels, outstanding colors, infinite contrast, and the sharpest details which ultimately uncovers all the detai4ls in darker scenes.

LG’s OLED technology is a perfect fit for any lifestyle and any interest. Whether your TV use caters more to Cinematic, Sports, Gaming, or Lifestyle, LG OLED TV provides the best experience possible.

Another heavyweight in LG’s lineup of TVs is the NanoCell Real 8K TV. By offering accurate, lifelike color, one is able to experience unparalleled realism at home. LG NanoCell technology produces pure colors by applying about 1nm-sized nanoparticles to filter out dull color and enhance color purity, giving you vivid and accurate hues.

Perfectly complementing the LG OLED and LG NanoCell 8K are two new speakers – the XBoom Go PL5 and PL7. These are portable Bluetooth speakers that give any room, big or small, an immersive surround sound experience. To bring their XBOOM speakers to the next level, LG has collaborated with Meridian, the British pioneers and one of the pillars of High-Resolution audio.

For gamers and would-be streamers, LG showcased two of its newest monitors. LG UltraGear™ monitors are the perfect way to get started with esports and gaming, owing to their versatility in performing other tasks without losing a step. Plug it in, play a game, and immerse yourself. LG UltraWide™ monitors are the perfect working-from-home companion, giving you a wide screen area to multi-task and boost your productivity. A whole new world awaits.

LG Managing Director Inkwun Heo spoke about the role that home entertainment plays in the new normal. “With the extended amount of time we’re now spending at home and in the foreseeable future, we really get to see Life in Details. We learn to appreciate how technology makes our life better. As staying at home becomes the ‘new normal’, I assure you, with our new Home Entertainment System, you would want to stay at home.”

LG products are available in Lazmall and other authorized online sellers and dealers nationwide. For a complete list of retailers, please visit www.lg.com/ph

Must-have gadgets for distance learning

Part of our new normal as parents is having to look after our kids while they continue their education at home. Through virtual classes, schools get to continue providing our children education without the risk of catching the virus through face-to-face interactions in a traditional classroom. This new norm called distance learning requires a range of technology to improve the educational experience.

On.Ward PH–the newest and most innovative retail store for top-of-the-line products for education, work-from-home, content creation, fitness and health, and gaming, as well as smart products from well-known brands–has recently released three latest products for a creative and easy way of learning online.

One of the latest releases is the HUE HD camera and HUE HD Pro Camera, which is not only used for online learning but also for art, calligraphy, sports, and webinars.

An easy-to-use document camera with mic, you can use this to record videos and sound and capture still images for a better learning experience for your children.

Additionally, the HUE HD camera is compatible with Windows and macOS and is available in Black, Blue, Red and Green for ₱3,299 and the HUE HD Pro for ₱5,299.

Woodpad 7 and Woodpad 10 are also at the top of their list. A thin, lightweight bamboo drawing pad specially built for people who want to take their creativity wherever they go.

With its incredibly precise pen accuracy, it delivers a simple and familiar drawing experience just like using a pen and paper.

Both drawing pads are available for ₱4,099.00 and ₱6,599.

On.Ward PH also carries the JBL JR300BT, a safe, lightweight wireless earphone that protects your children’s hearing. It ensures that the volume does not reach a harmful level, but still provides a good sense of bass depth to enjoy what your kids are listening to.

The JBL JR300BT is available in Punky Pink, Tropic Teal, and Rocker Blue for ₱2,999.

All of these latest technologies are beneficial in enhancing every child’s remote learning experience as schools today lean toward distance learning. Every parent needs to ensure that their children can learn and study from home with ease.

How to be responsible parents and kids in the digital space

As families continue to stay at home to observe quarantine policies, Globe encourages parents and kids to be responsible digital citizens as their internet usage inevitably increases at this time.

Perhaps unkown to many, the internet can be a dangerous place especially for our children, as they are vulnerable to bullying, threats, and cyber crimes. To help minimize the risk and promote responsible digital citizenship, Globe held the first “Kids & Tech: Parenting in the Digital Age,” an exclusive webinar that teaches families to become savvy consumers of social media and technology.

The panel included representatives from Globe myBusiness: Georges Dizon, Business Enablement and Training Manager, and Maybe Lynn Tarroja, Customer Development Manager. The webinar was moderated by Kristen Dimayuga, the program lead for education of the Corporate Communications Group of Globe.

Together, the panelists shared the Parent Module, a family-oriented approach to digital citizenship. It follows the framework of the Digital Thumbprint Program (DTP), a series of workshops taught to students on how to help cultivate a safer online environment. In the webinar, guests learned about the common risks of going online and how to protect themselves.

Dealing with bullying

A study by UNICEF found that cyberbullying affects 70 percent of the youth around the world. Children may feel embarrassed to open up about it to their parents, so adult figures must be careful in dealing with this type of situation.

“We need to clarify what happened, why it happened, and who is involved,” shares Dizon. “We also need to offer support in a positive way. It’s important for children to talk to a trusted adult, whether it’s a parent, a teacher, or an organization like Bantay Bata.”

Your information is valuable

Hackers can get into users’ accounts by using the information they share online. These include private details like full names, birthdays, and phone numbers, which can be linked to passwords. To prevent this, Dizon advises having a strong password that has uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols. Avoid passwords related to birthdays and other important dates.

“Always remember to log out of your account, set your accounts to private, and be mindful of your surroundings when typing your password,” he adds.

Other information can also be weaponized. Travel dates and photos of expensive items like jewelry can alert potential thieves of empty homes filled with valuables. Posting car photos with plate numbers allow anyone to trace personal data.

Be wary of hashtags

Parents are advised to protect their children from predators by not using hashtags that will put their privacy in danger. Hashtags like #cutekids and #bathtime can be used by sexual predators to look for their next victim.

May forever” online

Any content that is posted on the internet will be there forever. While platforms allow its users to delete their content, others can download or take screenshots of photos and videos.

“Make sure your account is private and to always think twice before posting anything. Don’t spend too much time on social media,” Dizon says.

Rely on credible news sites

There are websites pretending to be credible news platforms online. Before clicking on it or sharing, it is a good idea to gauge whether the platform is reliable. Always rely on trusted news sites that deliver well-researched and factual data.

Know the organizations that can help

It is important to keep the numbers of organizations that can help. Examples include #2919 for Hopeline Philippines and #163 for Bantay Bata. Both are toll-free numbers for Globe and TM subscribers.

Through “Kids & Tech: Parenting in the Digital Age,” Globe aims to increase responsible digital citizenship among parents and children. To reach more families, Globe can organize online workshops for schools for free.

Stay charged with these Aukey accessories from Shopee

Traveling may be restricted these days due to the imposed quarantine, but for essential workers and those who need to attend to important businesses outside the home, keeping communication devices powered at all costs is very important.

At Shopee, you can find some of the most reliable and affordable charging accessories for your gadgets such as your smartphone, tablet, and other electronics.

Aukey, an international brand that’s being sold in over 50 countries, is now available in every Filipino’s favorite online shopping platform. With a product line dedicated to charging, you can find almost any charging accessory you need for your device.

One of my favorites is the Aukey CB-AM1 High Performance Nylon Micro USB Cable, which retails at only P349.

Perfect for long term, heavy duty use, this cable features premium copper wire core wrapped in a special woven nylon braid sleeve jacket for enhanced tensile strength and the ultimate protection.

This means you don’t need to worry about breaking the cords when you accidentally stretch, bend, or pull the charging cable during use.

Tangle-free and durable, you can enjoy high-speed charging that and data sync/transfer that is up to 20 percent faster than normal cables.

It’s also made with safety technology for additional level of protection through its dedicated heat-resistant connectors and rigorous stress testing processes for thousands of bends, this cable handles everything.

It works well with all Micro USB port devices and best accompanied with the Aukey PB-N42 10000mAh Dual Port Mini Power Bank Portable Charger, priced at P1,649 on Shopee.

With 10000mAh of backup USB charging power, you can charge two devices at the same time through its dual 3.1A USB output ports.

Easily recharge your smartphone and a secondary device at max speed without worrying about running out of power.

You can even use it during an emergency with its built-in flashlight.

Using this powerbank, I can get one full charge each on my smartphone and tablet, with still enough power to recharge my mini fan, which I carry around to keep me cool when I have to go outside.

You don’t need to worry about overcharging, overheating, or excessive current, too, as it has built-in safeguards powered by AiPower Adaptive Charging technology that can intelligently adjust power output to match your charging needs.

I also love that it’s pocket-sized and lightweight, which makes it easier to bring along wherever you go.

Also complementing these two accessories is the Aukey Dual Port Car Charger with AiPower, which sells at only P729.

DC 12V/24V supported, charging safety is guaranteed thanks to its sophisticated circuit design with over-heat, over-current, over-charging protection.
