Twenty-one-year-old Chienna Filomeno is the real deal when it comes to social media popularity. With Instagram followers that has racked up to more than a million, Chienna’s semi-charmed life is an open book. Juggling showbusiness, travels, and learning how to be a DJ, Chienna just added one more gig into her already long line of pursuits: A Vivo influencer. Chienna is part of the young and hip celebrities signed by the globally popular phone brand last September to be part of the Vivo Family.
To say that she was overwhelmed was an understatement when asked how she felt after being chosen to carry the Vivo brand. “[I am happy] that [Vivo] trusted me,” she gushes in a briefinterview conducted during a photo shoot organized by Vivo.
Chienna, along with the other Vivo brand influencers, are all thrilled over Vivo’s latest pride, the V7+. Chienna could not get any more excited. She loves how she could take a clear, all-natural selfie with an array of filters to choose from right off the bat. One of these filters is the Bokeh effect, an aesthetic qualityof out of focus blur in photos which adds drama and flair to any selfie. “My selfies are so clear and natural!” Chienna says referring to the V7+ 24 MP clearer selfie, front facing camera—one of the world’s first— with LED flash and smart photography algorithms provides for a clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking photoTo further perfect a selfie, the V7+’s Special Face Beauty 7.0 feature brightens up photos and evens-out complexions so capturing a selfie-moment is not a problem in dimly-lit environment.
Chienna also appreciates how superb the sound came out while listening to music during an hour of country trip to Bangkok, owing it to the V7+ high fidelity sound feature which supports the latest sound technology and levels up mobile audio technology, enabling any music lover to enjoy rich and full rhythms.
Chienna She urges her fans to pick a Vivo smartphone for themselves “because it is super worth it,”. The young budding star will be appearing alongside her fellow Vivo brand endorsers in various mall tours to be mounted by the top smartphone brand. The four-month mall tour which commenced last September will run until the end of 2017 and will heavily endorse the Vivo V7+.

I was once again invited to the Premiere Night of Viva Films' latest movie, The Barker which stars Empoy Marquez. The cast also includes his leading lady  Shy Carlos and is Directed by Dennis Padilla.

I was asked by a friend about my prediction on the movie. I can honestly say, I got confused on the story. Was it just me or was the editing a bit confusing. Oh well, but I am glad that Empoy now has gained a lot of fans and followers who were present during the night. They were happily cheering for him and Empoy in return stop for a few minutes or so to have a photo with them at the red carpet.


Not much to say about the movie, its just that I hope they can create another really good project for him because he is nice and super humble. Shy on the other hand really makes a good leading lady, she is very pretty on screen.

Being on the red carpet and hearing their fans chant "Empoy" made the night super worthy.

Trick or treating is something that was introduced locally a few years ago but something that has become almost an instant hit to children and adults alike. Shooting a good and clear Halloween photo with the usual low-lit or dim setting of a Halloween ambiance may be a challenge with an ordinary phone camera.

But with the Vivo V7+, dimly-lit environment is never a challenge when taking a clear selfie shot. Known for rocking one of the first 24MP selfie-centric smartphones to hit the market, the V7+ Vivo’s perfect response to the selfie phenomenon. Its 24MP clearer selfie, front facing camera, with LED flash and smart photography algorithms provides for a clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking photo while one is out and about whether for tricks or treats. A fan of scary movies or Armageddon-type video games? Enjoy them with the V7+’s revolutionary 5.99 all-screen Display boasting of an 84.4% screen to body ratio, providing a more exciting and enhanced game and visual experience. V7+’s Special Face Beauty 7.0 feature is also a hit even for the not-so-pretty Halloween masks as it brightens up photos and evens-out complexions so capturing a selfie-moment is not a problem in Halloween’s overcast set-up. The V7+’s camera also has a built-in Bokeh feature which gives photos a beautiful effect of a soft out-of-focus background, a famous aesthetic in selfies in the recent years.
There are no tricks, only treats with the Vivo V7+. It features the most advanced technologies, not only to the cameras but to all aspects, from photo shooting to display, helping media-savvy and social media devoted consumers to capture and enjoy their most significant moments this Halloween and beyond.

Speaking of Halloween affairs, Vivo mounted a special Halloween event for their loyal Vivo fans last October 27. Titled Heroes Vs Villains, the event was held at the Ibiza Beach Club at the Bonifacio Global City. DJ Carlo Atendido was invited to spin for the Spooktacular event. Guests were invited to show up in their best Warner TV hero or villain.  The event also coincided with Vivo’s Halloween promo, the Vivo Halloween Off where contestants are asked to share online their best and funniest DIY Halloween costume selfie with the hashtag #VivoHalloweenOff. Three best entries were picked based on creativity and  will compete for the prize via a voting system. The winner will be announced on October 31

Verniece Enciso, a voracious blogger on topics of lifestyle, beauty, travel, and fashion, and part of the Vivo Family circle was Vivo V7+ fashion insider at the recently-concluded MEGA Fashion Week Spring Summer 2018. The MEGA Fashion Week which officially unveiled at a pre-party event last October 23 at the posh Twenty Four Seven Mckinley in the heart of the bustling Bonifacio Global City, is co-sponsored by Vivo, an established smartphone brand popular for its sleek and stylish designs coupled with thumbprint, top-of-the-line features.
The happenings in the glamorous opening party graced by the who’s who in the fashion arena were all captured using the Vivo V7+ clearer-selfie, perfect shot smartphone. A host of MakingMEGA stars who have graced the covers of MEGA Magazine were also in attendance and their presence were snapped into a collection of eventful photographs using the V7+.
Verniece, who arrived in a simple but elegant wine-red number spent some time with the event guests and media at the dedicated selfie booth, taking selfies using her Vivo V7+. The show started at 9:00 pm where Verniece officially welcomed the crowd to the MEGA Fashion Week event and acknowledged the night’s special guest Dr. Vicky Belo escorted by husband Hayden Kho. She proceeded taking selfie snaps with the MEGA executives and fashion guru John Herrera who was, as well, the featured designer for the evening.

Verniece along with MEGA muses Kisses Delavin and the country’s most favorite sweetheart Kathryn Bernardo belong to Vivo’s pool of celebrity. Having supported Vivo products, the Vivo Family’s latest pride is the Vvio V7+, perhaps the best fit yet in taking the best fashion selfies. Dubbed as a selfie-centric smartphone, the V7+ boasts of a 24MP clearer selfie, front-facing camera with LED flash and smart photography algorithms which provides for a clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking photo, embracing the look and feel of glossy fashion centerfolds. With the V7+’s 24 MP camera’s built-in Bokeh effect, chic and polished selfies come out flavored with artful charm. The Bokeh effect—one of the most popular camera filters to come out in recent years since the advent of selfie-taking—adds a semblance of drama and imagination with its aesthetic blurred effect. Moreover, the V7+’s Face Beauty 7.0 feature  gives out selfies with an airbrush perfection as its beautifying aftereffect produces fresher and brighter-looking skin, with a host of filters to pick from to fit the day’s mood or the OOTD’s feel and aura.
Vivo V7+ is a selfie-centric smartphone which represents the brand’s mission of empowering self-expression of the next generation. It features the most advanced technologies, not only to the cameras but to all aspects, from photo shooting to display, helping media-savvy and social media devoted consumers to capture and enjoy their most significant moments.

Taking a selfie is all the rage these days and smartphones with various selfie features have popped up in the market. But it takes a truly efficient phone to pack all the thumbprint features any self-confessed selfie-fanatic would appreciate, such as being able to take a social media feed-worthy selfie fresh out of bed, first thing in the morning.

The Vivo V7+, the newest addition to the line-up of the 5th in the 2016-2017 Leading Global Smartphone Brands, ensures that anyone can take a no-make up selfie with no worries. The Vivo V7+, with its 24MP clearer selfie, front facing camera—one of the industry’s firsts, boasts of a built-in special Face Beauty 7.0 feature which brightens up photos and evens-out complexions. Selfies come out almost flawless and the worries of a fresh out of bed look are dismissed; the beautifying results of the Face Beauty 7.0 feature yield fresher and brighter skin complemented by a variety of filters to complement the mood of the day. The 24MP front-facing camera  rocks an LED flash and smart photography algorithms for clear, sharp, and natural-looking photos. The V7+’s clearer selfie camera helps feeds one’s vanity and  ease-of-use when an impulse to take a selfie kicks in.

With its built-in Bokeh effect in its camera, the V7+ levels up any selfie even more by adding a special, aesthetic blurred effect, adding drama and charm to one’s portrait. With the Bokeh effect, selfies come out with a softer, dewy effect, blotting out imperfections and visible flaws. The Bokeh effect comes built in with the V7+’s camera so the hassle of switching from camera to an external, installed application to apply the effects is no longer an issue. The Bokeh effect is one of the most popular filters to emerge in the recent years and are coveted because of the whimsical if not dreamy air it gives selfies.

The Vivo V7+ which was just launched last month, also rocks other top of the line specs such as a revolutionary 5.99 all-screen display with an 84.4% screen to body ratio, providing a more exciting and enhanced game and visual experience plus a Smart Split 3.0 feature which allows users to check their messages, mails, among other things without interrupting the current running app.

The V7+, with its impressive, thumbprint features, is priced at only Php 17,990.00. Available in Matte Black and Champagne Gold—perfect shades for the hippest crowd. The Vivo V7+ is selling nationwide and is available at Lazada, Argomall and all Vivo concept stores and kiosks.

Vivo Is All That We Need: Vivo V7+ allows anyone to take selfies anytime of the day, even without make-up.
