Samsung Galaxy Note 7 specs
Go for realme 3 pro.
,I have seen dosens of durability and performance test on these phones, Realme emerges out as a champion.
,Realme 3 pro have 4000mah battery and M30 has 5000mah but 3 pro comes with vooc 3.
0 fast charger which definitely makes it better than Samsung.
,Note 7 pro has Snapdragon 6xx series and 3 pro has 7xx series so here also 3 pro wins.
,Edit: 1,Camera wise I would say, M30 has better camera ( dont look for theoretical specs, im saying this on basis of practical experience) but realme 3 pro have more camera features like slow motion at high frame rates , natural photos etcu2026 and talking about camera of note 7 pro it applies awful filters, so if you have to choose between the camera of note 7pro and realme 3 pro ,go with realme 3 pro.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 explosion
It seems obvious at first sight that a lot of people will not buy a Note 7 for fear that theirs might explode as well.
,This incident will likely go the same route as the Apple #bendgate issue from years back.
,Humans are unpredictable.
Samsung may make a lot of sells despite this incident.
Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Pro
Redmi Note 7 Pro is better in all aspects than the Galaxy A50 except maybe the display,Display: The galaxy A50 has got a super amoled display with punchy and vibrant colours and deep blacks.
The note 7 Pro has a high quality IPS LCD display which although good does not mathch upto the super amoled display on the A50,Performance and Gaming :The Redmi Note 7 Pro has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor which is way better than the galaxy A50 in gaming.
Besides this, the A50 tends to get warm after a few hours of gaming and there is an occasional frame drop here and there.
This is not the case with the Note 7 Pro which absolutely is a gaming beast,Software: the Galaxy A50 runs on Samsungs new skin one UI which is far better than Samsungs previous software iterations like Samsung experience and touchwiz.
The Redmi Note 7 Pro runs Android 9 ke based Miui out of the box.
Now this is a sheaviky customised skin of stock Android.
Some people might prefer the loads of customisations that Miui brings with it but I am not too much a fan of it,Camera: now coming to the optics, this is an area in which the Note 7 Pro absolutely demolishes the A50.
It performs exceptionally in low lighting conditions and the colour reproduction on the note 7 Pro is far better than the galaxy A50 which tends to wash out images.
,Overall, the Note 7 Pro edges out the galaxy A50 in terms of performance and camera while the A50 has a better display and a software that I personally prefer,Now its upto you to decide.
Samsung Note 6 price Philippines
I am a Filipino, born, bred and resident since birth, so I believe I am eminently qualified to answer this question.
I will have to beg some indulgence, however, since my recall of Philippine history is spotty - itu2019s been years since I sat in a classroom and havenu2019t really had an opportunity to further my formal education.
,First, though, I must ask what the questioner meant by u201ccolonial mentalityu201d? I ask because there are two (2) aspects to the matter.
,On the one hand, do you mean to ask why the Philippines seems to be more attuned to Western, rather than u201cAsianu201d values and attitudes where even our stance on international relations seemingly skews more to the West (or the US) rather than towards Asia?,On this point, I have to agree with Norman Owenu2019s observation that the Philippines was colonized longer than almost any other country in the modern world.
,One of the most quoted speeches of the late Senator Benigno Aquino Jr.
(the father of former President Benigno Aquino III) goes, u201cThe Philippines lived for 400 years in a Spanish convent; and the next 50 years in Hollywoodu201d - referring to our colonial past (1565u20131898 under Spain, and from 1898u20131946 under the United States, although the last 10 years of the latter were as a u201cCommonwealthu201d under the aegis of the US).
,Prior to the arrival of the Spanish conquistadores (Magellan u2018discoveredu2019 the Philippines in 1521 but actual colonialization began in 1565 with the arrival of Ruy Lopez de Legazpi), the Philippines was a collection of independent, tribal communities with no clear u201cunifyingu201d factor amongst them.
This may be due, in part, to the countryu2019s archipelagic nature - a collection of 7,100 islands at high tide (and somewhat more at low tide), which meant that the various communities were isolated from each other, for all intents and purposes.
,Islam *could* have been a unifying factor except that it never really made it outside of Mindanao (and even then, it was u2018limitedu2019 to the southern parts of the Mindanao which is closest to Indonesia (our so-called u2018southern backdooru2019).
The arrival of the Spaniards changed the situation - they brought in their system of government, expanded their reach and influence from Luzon in the north to parts of Mindanao in the south, technically u201cbringing togetheru201d the disparate tribes and communities under Spanish domination.
,The downside to Spainu2019s rule over the Philippines was that they never made a serious effort at assimilating the Filipinos through education.
Most schools at the time (as I recall) were run by the various religious orders in the Philippines (with Jesuits building the Ateneo; Dominicans in charge of the University of Santo Tomas, the Benedictines establishing San Beda) with others, like Letran being set up by a retired Spanish officer and Knight of Malta to u201ceducate and mould *orphans* to be good Christian citizens.
,In effect, education in the Philippines under Spain was not u201cuniversalu201d - while there were many who could - and did - attain higher education, it seems the majority of Filipinos were not that well educated or assimilated into the Spanish way of doing things.
Which could be where the view of the 1896 Philippine Revolution (against Spain) being started by the u201cunwashedu201d masses before being coopted and u2018sold outu2019 to the Americans by the u2018lettered eliteu2019 came from.
,SIDE NOTE: As I said, my view of history may well be skewed and distorted while growing up; thinking back now, one must ask how the u201cunwashed and unlettered massesu201d were influenced by the Propaganda Movement of Rizal, MH del Pilar and others who were all writing and discoursing in Spanish; and despite all the imagery of Andres Bonifacio as a u201cman of the masses,u201d he was - as historians point out - an erudite individual.
How, for example, could he have been influenced by the Propagandists if he could not read their writings and works which were in Spanish?,Anyway u2026 it was the Americans who instituted a system of public (universal) education with the arrival of 500 teachers aboard the US ship Thomas (hence, the term u201cThomasitesu201d, followed by others (as per Wikipedia, a total of 1,074 American teachers came to the Philippines to establish the public school system under the American colonial government).
,As would be expected, the medium of instruction was English and teaching would be skewed towards u201cAmericanu201d values and culture (mom, hotdogs and apple pie - as well as baseball and basketball).
,How much impact did this have on the Philippines?,Two things come to mind.
My elementary (primary) school education was at a Catholic school for boys in the 1960s where the medium of instruction was English - and we were told *not* to speak in Tagalog (or Pilipino) outside of the mandated 1 hour per day for Pilipino class.
We were fined or told off if we were caught by teachers and class monitors speaking Pilipino inside and outside the classroom - in fact, we brought that habit home and often would be talking to our parents and siblings in English!,In fact, we even had *American* history as part of our curricula until about Grade 5 when the course was dropped in favour of Philippine history (which was all dates and historical figures like Magellan, Legazpi, and so on.
This was before Agoncillo, Renato Constantino and Ambeth Ocampo.
),At the same time, most of our reading material was in English - the major newspapers were in English; books and novels were in English; most of radio and TV programming was in English (I grew up listening to Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, and so on) and movies were mostly English.
Pilipino music was seldom heard on radio in those days (OPM became popular in the 1970s); reading materials in Tagalog were mostly comics which catered mainly to the household help; TV shows and radio dramas were in Pilipino (actually Tagalog since we were in Manila) but those never had much of an appeal to me.
,Also - the locally produced TV shows were mainly variety programs and musicals with most of the numbers being - you guessed it, American and Western songs (the Beatles were a big hit, of course!),What was the impact of this? When I was in high school (around 1973 or u201874), my mother, sister and I visited my fatheru2019s home town way out there in Leyte province.
There were no roads to the town; to get there, we had to take a boat to Surigao province and then an open-air outrigger (called a u2018pumpboatu2019) which accommodated about 20u201330 people; travel time from embarkation in Surigao to Leyte was about 6 hours.
,Anyway, we had the chance to chat with a school teacher on that small boat - she was going home to her family in another town - and we talked for hours, sharing experiences, backgrounds, and so on.
When we were saying good bye to her (she was getting off at the next u2018stopu2019 - about an hour away - she remarked, u201cYou know, weu2019ve been chatting for hours and the whole time weu2019ve been speaking English!u201d,*blink*,Then she laughed and said, u201cUnfortunately, there is no other way for us to talk - I donu2019t speak a word of Tagalog!u201d This was a school teacher in the Visayas and we - both Filipinos - could only communicate with each other in English!,So, why do we have the u201cstrongestu201d colonial mentality in Asia? As Ninoy said, we spent 400 years in a Spanish convent and then another 50 years in Hollywood - to the point that today, we are still more comfortable speaking (American) English and can act more u201cAmericanu201d than the Americans.
,On the other hand, there is also the matter of defining u201ccolonial mentalityu201d in terms of our seeming preference for foreign (American) products and brands rather than u201clocally producedu201d products - I smoke Marlboros rather than Fortunes; prefer Johnny Walker over Ginebra San Miguel and Tanduay Rhum; would opt for Burger King or Pizza Hut/Shakeyu2019s rather than Jollibee or Greenwich.
,For one thing u2026 there is no escaping the proliferation of US (and Western) brands in this country in everything from u201csinu201d products (cigarettes and liquor) to clothes (Levis and Dockers), to appliances (refrigerators here are called u201cFrigidaireu201d no matter the brand; cameras used to be called u201cKodaksu201d - no matter if youu2019re toting a Kodak instamatic or a high-end Olympus, Nikon or Minolta) and so on.
,One thing most people overlook, however, is the role that *quality* plays in a Filipinou2019s buying decision, especially in matters outside of food.
,There was a marketing study done some years back (early 2000s, I think) which pointed out that, rather than ascribing Filipino buying decisions or preference for foreign brands to u2018colonial mentalityu2019, one should consider the innate frugality of Filipinos, especially the middle class.
,Given a choice between a foreign brand with assured quality and long-lasting use and u2018locally producedu2019 perceivably shoddy goods - which one would a hardworking, barely able to save Filipino buy? He (or she) would rather wait the moment the stores would sell price-discounted foreign goods to buy one or two u2018qualityu2019 items that would last him for years rather than spend his hard-earned money for 3u20134 items (especially clothing) that would be dilapidated and fit for the garbage can within 2u20133 months (if it even lasts that long).
,It comes down (to my mind) to the innate *practicality* of Filipinos combined with the perception (and sadly, the *fact*) that foreign-made (read - mostly American) goods are of better quality than locally made goods - especially in the latter half of the 20th century.
Show us a better-made, non-American or locally produced product and weu2019d be buying those products rather than buying American (u2018colonialu2019) as a first impulse.
,There was a time when u201cMade in Japanu201d (or China or Korea) meant shoddy goods and having a u201cMade in Americau201d item meant you were wearing or using quality goods.
Those days are long gone: Sony, Sharp, Samsung, LG, Panasonic are now top of mind - and even American brands like Apple are actually u201cmadeu201d in China.
,So u2026 u201ccolonial mentalityu201d? Yes we are - culturally, it came from spending formative years in either the convent or in Hollywood; in terms of product or brand preference (foreign made vs local products), it was more a question of quality rather than the brand name per se.
Samsung Galaxy Note 6
Technically speaking, the Galaxy Note 6 you are talking about is the Galaxy Note 7.
You may be confused, but Samsung renamed it because they did not want people to think that the Note series was one generation behind compared to the S series.
So, Samsung went ahead and renamed it to the Galaxy Note 7 creating the picture that the Note series it up to date with the S series.
