The New Nokia LUMIA 920, 820, and 620

Despite the tough smartphone competitions between brands, I have been a loyal Nokia user since my first phone... which was Nokia 3210. It eventually evolved into Nokia 3100 and now, I use the Xpress Music 5800. Still, I'm looking for new updates and releases from this brand. My latest visit from Abenson Glorietta has enlightened me on the latest phone to purchase in the future.

LUMIA 620, LUMIA 820, and LUMIA 920 is the latest from Nokia. The store representative, Faye, told me more about what these phones can do. She gave me a walk through of the specifications and features of each.

Aside from the fast facts shown above, there are also apps that were to my liking. Like the People Hub, where I can sync in my Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking sites. I could post, reply, and comment from there without downloading the official site apps. 

Aside from that, I also like the Neighborhood feature wherein you just need to take a video of your surroundings and the app tells you about the stores near you. It gives you the reviews and the guide on how to get there.

But the best one for me, who have trouble with directions, is the Nokia Drive. This is a GPS app that can be used offline. So no need to look for WiFi hot spots just in case you get lost.

Some apps available for Nokia LUMIA.
I am eyeing on the Nokia LUMIA 920 as it boasts a good 8 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens. It has auto focus and auto-LED flash. There is a secondary camera on the front, though it is only 1.3 megapixel. But it will be a great help for those who like to do selca (self camera) shots (like me~LOL). Other than the camera, LUMIA 920 is enabled for wireless charging. 

LUMIA 920 will be available in the Philippines this April 2013, so prices are not yet available.

Next in line is the LUMIA 820. The difference between Lumia 920 and 820 is only the quality of the cameras: 8MP with Carl Ziess optics but the secondary camera on the front is VGA. They have the same OS and other technical specifications. 

Compared to 920, LUMIA 820 is smaller is size. What I like about this baby is the interchangeable shells. This is great for creative people. However, you need to buy a special shell for this to be able to do wireless charging.

Lastly, we have the LUMIA 620. It looks practically the same as LUMIA 820. Among the other specifications that Faye explained, I only remember the camera. I like photography so I am most concerned with this. LUMIA 620 has 5MP camera and a VGA secondary camera. Price is at:

Overall, I like these latest Nokia phones. I have experienced LUMIA 920 and 820 first hand and I like the sensitive touch screen, which is receptive enough to my long nails.  I haven't tried the sounds but it is promising, with specifications that tell of Dolby Headphone Sound Enhancement. 

Abenson has these latest Nokia LUMIA series! They offer discounts for cash payments. Plus, they also have ongoing promos for you:

Good review, but can't believe that you dropped the phone many times, to check its durability ! May be, you have dropped it on your Dunlop bed to complete the formality !!

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi
