These tech gifts are a perfect way to close out the year
We may be too old to believe in Santa, flying reindeers and a catch-all sack, but the years under our belt have also taught us that there are ways to create the magic of Christmas in our own ways. The holidays definitely look different this year—because while the protocols have loosened up, we are still urging you to social distance as much as possible—but we can still get away with some traditions.
If we can’t physically be with our loved ones, the next best thing might be to up our gift giving skills.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE
The year is 2020 and we are literally all glued to our smartphones—for work, for school, for that much needed break. So instead of gifting someone the standard, why not pick something that will really stand out?
The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE allows you to expand your growing interest in photography with its 32MP selfie camera, 12MP Ultra Wide camera, 12MP wide-angle camera and 8MP Telephoto camera. Its 4500mAh battery and Super Fast Charging feature also provide comfort in that the device will last you throughout the day, no matter what the task. Besides, it comes in six stylish colors (Cloud Mint, Cloud Lavender, Cloud Navy, Cloud Orange, Cloud White and Cloud Red) that you can match to any personality.
Get the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE from now until December 31, 2020 and get payment terms of 24 months at 0% interest. The unit is priced at P35,990 in Samsung Experience Stores, the Samsung Online Store and Samsung-authorized online stores.
The Huawei FreeBuds Pro
The world is full of wireless connection nowadays; it makes me feel ancient remembering how I used to stick one phone to the other to transfer things via Bluetooth—but my point is that we’ve come a long way and, when there are multiple options, practicality might be the real differentiator.
What are we really looking for here, anyway? Comfort, style, accessibility, smart control and noise cancelation. Fortunately, the Huawei FreeBuds Pro ticks all the boxes. Sleek and minimalist, you can control the FreeBuds with swipe, press or pinch gestures that don’t require you to unlock your smartphone.
Order the Huawei FreeBuds Pro for P7,999 from December 12 to 14, 2020 and get freebies of up to P3,489!
For the smokers who are well aware that cigarettes are bad for the health but just can’t—or refuse—to break the habit, MOK is the answer. The first locally launched Heat-Not-Burn brand in the Philippines, MOK provides a satisfying and full-flavored experience without burning the tobacco. Nicotine, yes, but none of the harmful smoke of cigarettes.
We can talk about the technicalities, but is that important once you’re actually using the unit? Not really; unlike a smartphone, you just need to know that MOK delivers consistently and that you won’t be missing out on traditional smoking—and honestly, once you get used to the inhalation (which is a little less than standard), you’re good to go.
MOK is available in select GrabMart hubs, as well as LazMall and Shoppee Mall. MOK has is sold for P3,490 while the MOK Mini retails for P2,490. The sticks, meanwhile, are available for P120 per pack and P1,200 for a ream.
What makes the holidays a little merrier for everyone? When you get more than what you’re buying—and that’s exactly what ASUS is offering until the end of the year:
- ASUS laptops worth P30,000-P59,000 will come with an ASUS TUF H3 headset worth P2,100
- ASUS laptops worth P60,000-P99,000 will receive an ASUS ZenScreen Portable Monitor worth P13,390
- ASUS laptops worth P100,000 and up will come with the ASUS ZenBeam S2 Projector worth P27,490
