The 3 Million worth donation is expected to help make the shelter more conducive to every child’s recovery. This includes:
(1) over 27,000 various personal care products such as body wash, soap and toothpaste items
(2) 5 43” Full HD TVs
(3) 28 Dual Inverter Airconditioning units
(4) 2 Top Load Washing Machines
(5) 2 Side by Side Refrigerators.

The House of Hope Foundation, located inside the Southern Philippines Medical Center compound (SPMC), is a charitable group that provides temporary shelter to children with cancer. SPMC is the only hospital in the whole of Mindanao that offers free cancer treatment to children. Since a large majority of its patients are indigent families with no place to stay while they are undergoing treatment, the House of Hope provides a sanctuary for them.

Five Visually Involving Movies to Watch on Your Mobile Phone

Have you considered making a mobile phone movie list? These films might make it to your list too, trailer link included.

The sales life can be stressful at times. No matter how immune the Closers are to the pressure of the monthly sales quota, we occasionally tend to look for an “easy to grip” escape without necessarily going away far from the sales table. There are really those times when our ears have relaxed from the songs we pre-selected for our playlist, but our pair of eyes still yearns for a stat visual recreation. Have you considered making a mobile phone movie list? These films might make it to your list too, trailer link included. Got you Fam!

1. Loving Vincent (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGzKnyhYDQI)

WHY: It’s the world’s first fully painted film which required over 100 classically-trained oil painters to paint with oils on canvases (same as van Gogh’s style) on each of the 65,000 frames used in the film.

Loving Vincent

It is a 2017 experimental animated film about the life and death of Dutch post-Impressionist painter, Vincent van Gogh.  The actors had to first film the entire movie, and the artists had to craft the animated paintings over the images after the filming of the movie ended. This added a layer of creativity because it allowed the viewers to still recognize the actors’ portrayal and appeal through the painted scenes. This gem is a one-of-a-kind visual mirage of vivid whirls and colors, enriched by the artists’ hard work and renditions of van Gogh’s masterpieces such as the celebrated “The Starry Night” and “Sunflowers”. This work of art stars Polish theatre actor Robert Gulaczyk on his first big feature, Douglas Booth, Jerome Flynn, and Saoirse Ronan. The film garnered many accolades and was nominated for the Best Animated Feature at the 2018 Academy Awards.

2. Blade Runner 2049 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCcx85zbxz4)

WHY: It is progressive and poised in tone through its muted gray, blue, and yellow visual imagery and cutting-edge effects. The non-cliche setting of a rainy and gritty future Los Angeles added texture and depth to the visuals.Blade Runer

It is a 2017 neo-noir sequel to the 1982 beloved sci-fi film, “Blade Runner”. The movie is about a replicant/bioengineered human who discovers a mystery that leads him to another replicant who has been missing for the past thirty years. It stars Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Jared Leto, Dave Bautista, and Cuban actress Anna de Armas in her first breakout role. Harrison Ford also returned to his role from the first movie. The film was praised by critics and won the Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects at the 2018 Academy Awards.

3. Dunkirk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-eMt3SrfFU)

WHY: Director Christopher Nolan’s signature non-linear sequencing, paired with immersive visual storytelling (Remember “Inception” and “Interstellar” ?)Dunkirk

It is a 2017 war film that portrays the British soldiers’ retreat to Dunkirk, north of France during World War II in three aspects: land, sea, and air. Nolan crafted the movie from the perspective of the characters, aiming to use stimulating imagery instead of the usual narrative. Dunkirk has been constantly praised as one of the greatest war films of all time, and maybe even Nolan’s best work as of yet. It stars Fionn Whitehead on his first major role, Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, and ex-One Direction singer Harry Styles in his film debut. This war epic impressed many, and won the Best Editing at the 2018 Academy Awards.

4. Mad Max: Fury Road (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEJnMQG9ev8)

Mad MaxWHY: With its dynamic blue and orange hues during a six-month long shoot in the deserts of Namibia, and gripping action scenes that banked on effective execution and actual stunts, critics have hailed the film as one of the greatest films of the 21st century.

It is a 2015 action movie and reboot of the Mad Max franchise about a post-apocalyptic wasteland where the protagonist/captive partners with a fellow survivor to escape from a fortress run by a tyrant leader. The cinematography of this film is stellar. The film stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoë Kravitz, as well as Riley Keough. The movie even got the chance to be shown through an out-of-competition screening at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival in France, and won the Costume Design, Production Design, Makeup and Hairstyling, and Film Editing categories at the 2016 Academy Awards.

 

5. The Grand Budapest Hotel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Fg5iWmQjwk)

WHY: The visuals of the movie are seamless—the color palette is dreamlike, the production design is quirkily stylized, and the flawless framing of shots are all a testament to Wes Anderson’s distinct and zany artistic eye.The Grand Budapest Hotel

It is a 2014 comedy film written and directed by Wes Anderson who is known for artistic films “The Royal Tenenbaums” and “Fantastic Mr. Fox”. It centers on a concierge who befriends the lobby boy to prove that he is not guilty after he is wrongfully accused of killing an affluent hotel guest.  It also features an ensemble cast of Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori in his first notable role, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson, and Owen Wilson. The movie is a cult favorite, and has won the Best Costume Design, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, and Best Production Design at the 2015 Academy Awards.

Your eyes need variety too! You can add more visually stimulating movies from these suggestions and reserve those for some quick visual pampering whenever your eyes need it. Consider this though: To fully appreciate visually stunning films through smartphone, your screen should be capable to display life-like depth and texture, exceptional vibrant colors and clarity.

V11 with Movie

Be visually entertained at the grip of your hand with its sleek 6.41-inch Super AMOLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

These Vivo features make you feel you are using an Outdated Smartphone

Innovations which have definitely made VIVO second to none in terms of smartphone innovations.

When you have been following every smartphone that Vivo has released for the past years, you definitely appreciate how innovative an added feature is in every newly launched handset. Disruptive, world’s first, pioneer, industry-leading – these are just some of the way tech savvy “netizens” react on every surprise Vivo sprinkles to its latest smartphone.

From external designs to unique user experience, here are hallmarks that Vivo has thoughtfully made that every smartphone user deserves.

Pop-out camera

Vivo NEX: The selfie camera only comes out when the user needs it.

Vivo wowed the world early 2018 with the release of its concept smartphone APEX that achieves a nearly 98% screen-to-body ratio. APEX features an 8-MP Elevating Front Camera that seamlessly rises in 0.8 seconds when it is required, then retracts after use. This technology was made commercially available when Vivo NEX was released in June 2018.

Screen SoundCasting Technology

Vivo APEX: Packed with world’s first specs like the Screen SoundCasting Technology.

The Screen SoundCasting Technology was first introduced in APEX. It was then launched for commercial release in the Vivo NEX. It replaces the traditional earpiece speaker by turning the screen into a speaker. It achieves this by sending vibrations through the screen with the exciter unit. This allows Vivo to reduce the top bezel and to enhances sound quality with more powerful bass, and softer, smoother treble.

Time Of Flight 3D Sensing Technology

Vivo revealed its Time of Flight (TOF) 3D Sensing Technology at MWC Shanghai 2018. It promises a paradigm shift in imaging, AR, and human-machine interaction to elevate consumer lifestyles with new levels of immersion and smart capability. This pioneering TOF 3D Sensing Technology detects the time it takes an emitted pulse light to return to the sensor to accurately map objects at up to three meters in front of it.

In-display fingerprint scanner

Vivo’s In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology: It replaces the rear fingerprint sensor with the latest under-display scanner

Vivo is also a pioneer in developing ultramodern yet convenient unlocking methods. Vivo has recently revealed that it has advanced the fingerprint scanning method by making the technology available on a screen. It debuted the first ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning solution at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 in Las Vegas last January.

Vivo in June 2018 introduced in the Philippines the Vivo X21 with the pioneering In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology. It replaces the rear fingerprint sensor with the latest under-display scanner.

Bezel-less screens

The Vivo NEX features an industry-leading 91.24% screen-to-body ratio.

Vivo is also a leader in enhancing every patron’s screen display experience. At the Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona, Spain last February, Vivo revealed a concept phone called the APEX™ FullView™. It features a typical 5.99-inch screen, but its screen-to-body ratio nearly reaches 100%.

The V9, meanwhile, boasts of a 90% screen-to-body ratio with its 6.3-inch FullView™ Display.

Vivo X21, on the other hand, has a 6.28-inch 19:9 FHD+ FullView™ Display. It has a super slim notch and a 1.66mm side bezels to achieve a 90.3% screen-to-body ratio to provide a wider viewing experience compared to other similar-sized phones.

Despite these impressive specs, Vivo is not yet done. The newest Vivo NE has an Ultra FullView™ Display with a 91.24% screen-to-body ratio, achieved by introducing industry-first features like the Elevating Front Camera and the Screen SoundCasting Technology.

High-Fidelity music

High Fidelity-ready Vivo smartphone models: Brings music to life.

One of the first innovations of Vivo was its decision to put a dedicated Hi-Fi quality audio chip in its smartphone, making it the first brand that gave proper attention to its handsets’ sound quality. Vivo introduced its Hi-Fi Quality Audio Chip in X1 in 2012.

It continued this legacy in their succeeding flagship models. The Vivo X21 is equipped with the AK4376A Hi-Fi audio chipset enhanced with Deep Field technology. This was developed by Vivo to provide panoramic surround, mega bass, clear voice effects, and various environmental audio effects to allow users to customize their audio experience.

The Hi-Fi audio quality of Vivo X21 provides close-to-reality that can instantly upgrade the two-channel music to 360-degree full surround sound or continuously push the natural bass into the ears to bring the clearest and brightest vocals.

Vivo has been dedicated to understanding its patrons and understood fully well the world’s obsession with selfies. It revolutionized the selfie game when it came out with a 20-megapixel dual front camera in V5 Plus. It is the first smartphone brand to do so, leaving the others working hard to catch up.

It was then followed up by the 24-MP front camera in V7 and V7+. In fact, Vivo V7+ was hailed as the best selfie phone in 2017 by many tech blogs and sites. The next model with 24-MP AI-powered selfie camera of the V9, proving that Vivo never stops pushing the limits in perfecting the features that matter most to its patrons.

These features have definitely made Vivo second to none in terms of smartphone innovations. Vivo does not just simply update what your handset can do. Vivo creates another capability your smartphone can perform in every experience an owner imagines. What could be the next? We do not know yet. What we know is, Vivo thinks generations ahead, leading the future of the smartphone industry.
