Samsung has officially launched its highly anticipated Galaxy foldable devices — the Galaxy Z Fold5 and Galaxy Z Flip5 in the Philippines at Conrad Manila, where they also unveiled the latest members of #TeamGalaxy. Meet your favorite celebrities and the nation’s top content creators and find out what convinced them to join the Flip Side.
Beauty queen, TV personality, singer, youth advocate, and art ambassador Catriona Gray has officially joined the Flip Side! For a multi-hyphenate whose schedule is always full, the Galaxy Fold5 is the perfect device for Catriona, who loves the phone’s big screen, multi-tasking capabilities and the S Pen that fits perfectly in her pocket.
“It allows you to do everything in one place. So, instead of needing your PC or a tablet, it’s all in your phone. I can take Zoom calls and stand the phone up so I can just angle it at any angle while on videos and I can also take down notes on the same device!” Catriona exclaimed.
As a content creator herself, the Galaxy Z Fold5’s biggest screen yet bestowed her the efficiency in performing multiple tasks with its versatile Multi-window feature for all apps. Not only does the Galaxy Z Fold5 give Catriona a PC-like experience in her pocket, she was also very impressed with its cameras and how easy it is to navigate when editing, “When I’m taking photos, the camera is really crisp and registers great color and contrast.”
AC Bonifacio: Galaxy Z Flip5 – the coolest content creation phone for Gen Zs
International dance sensation, singer, actress and now the new Team Galaxy ambassador AC Bonifacio is over the moon with the sleek design and color of the Galaxy Z Flip5 (the mint is her favorite!). AC described how much easier it is to create content and live independently with the pro-grade camera of the Galaxy Flip5 that comes with its unique FlexCam.
“It’s helped me a lot. For the past few months, I’ve been much more independent than I usually am. Whenever I need to do any type of content or when I work out sometimes, it’s nice to have the Flex Mode. I can just watch what I need to watch and I know it’s steady also on the floor.”
AC definitely recommends the Galaxy Z Flip5 to Gen Zs, “It’s super cool. Now that it’s back, it gives you the feeling of that ’90s flip phone, and at the same time, it gives you that Gen Z feeling because you have the content creation on it, the camera quality, gaming, everything all in one.”
Patricia Prieto: With the Galaxy Z Flip5, all you need is your phone and yourself
A fashion, travel/lifestyle blogger and content creator, Patricia Prieto can’t get over how wonderful her trip to Korea went for Unpacked – with the Galaxy Z Flip5 helping her capture every moment even when she was by herself.
“[With] the FlexCam, even if you’re using the selfie camera, it’s still so good. I can go to events by myself and not have to worry about a thing because I can just put it on a flat surface and take a photo of myself,” Patricia added.
She also shared how easy it was to sync up with the latest Galaxy Watch6, “ I was like, wow, I can do this. I can record by just using my watch. It was so easy.”
And after taking photos and videos, Patricia loves how easy it was to share these with the Quick Share feature and the high quality of photos when they were rendered even after transferring the files. “It’s still as crisp. As clear, as vibrant as when you first record it.”
Michelle Dee: A phone that matches her productivity drive and elevates the experience
A multi-hyphenate as well, Miss Philippines Universe 2023 Michelle Marquez Dee finds that having a phone that can match her productivity-beast self is indispensable. Creative and entrepreneurial, she’s ecstatic about the newly redesigned S Pen and the multi-window that comes with the Galaxy Z Fold5’s huge screen when unfolded. “It has a great form factor that will make your life so much more convenient and your workflow so much more efficient… your productivity that’s already at 100% just gets bumped up to 200% at that point.”
For Michelle, Samsung’s flagship foldable phone is truly the best in class. She describes the new aluminum bezels as sleeker and classier and even highlights, “The gap between the foldable screens is basically non-existent. I used to carry two phones, and now I don’t have to because the Fold5 is able to handle everything that I need to do.”
Nico Bolzico: Galaxy Watch6 series – your wellness partner
A fitness and wellness buff, entrepreneur and social media superstar, Nico Bolzico, is thrilled to explore everything the latest Galaxy Watch6 can offer. “There is a new way of training that is related to your heart rate. It’s not how fast you run but how to maintain your heart rate within two bands. Because I can check that with the Samsung watch, I’m very excited to try that.”
Nico also finds it essential to have a feature that monitors his sleep, especially for dads like him, “Sleeping, it’s a luxury today. So having [a] good quality of sleep and being able to monitor not only how much but how my sleep quality is, [is] very relevant because sleep is as important as training and eating. So sleep is one of those pillars that you need for your overall wellness.”
Camille Co: With the Galaxy Tab S9 series, you won’t miss out on anything!
From blogging to vlogging about fashion, beauty, travel and so much more, Camille Co juggles a hectic lifestyle as a content creator, wife and mom – so the Galaxy S Tab9 and its new features that support one’s creativity and productivity are set to become her new besties.
As a fashion designer who loves drawing and writing by hand, it’s no surprise that the S Pen captivated Camille – especially as it now comes with an IP68 rating for water resistance, “I’m not scared of using it outdoors because it’s really built to last.
It’s the most powerful Tab yet. I love that I’m able to bring it out with me anywhere.”
Would she recommend the Galaxy Tab S9 series? “I definitely think creatives would love this, especially now that Good Notes is available on Android. I’m a Good Notes user as well, so I really love it. Whenever I design for my multiple brands and all my different deliverables, I do it on Good Notes. Because it’s so powerful, we can even edit their videos just right on the tab.”
Along with DJ CRWN who served up upbeat music for the crowd, lifestyle content creators and fashion trendsetters such as Marina Summers, Melissa Gatchalian, Lexi Mendiola, Trasienne Estrada, Rex Atienza, Candy Gamos, Liam Labroy, Rocio Escano, JM Yrreverre, Marga Nicolas, Nicole De La Cruz, Chynna Beverly Lim, Lance De Ocampo, Bea Arboleda, Sofia Manzano and Deegee Razon were also present as new members of Team Galaxy
