Be a social media star and do awesome content with the Samsung Galaxy A73 5G

More than 82 percent of the Filipino population, or 92.05 million people, utilize social media on a regular basis, according to We Are Social and Kepios. Of them, 9.6 percent are aged 13 to 17, while 12.8 percent are aged 18 to 24. These numbers represent Gen Z, a new generation of hustlers eager to share their lives online. With the Samsung Galaxy A73 5G, Samsung is empowering them to be the next social media superstars.

The new smartphone is the ideal device for every Gen Z content creator looking to shoot viral-worthy Instagram reels and photos, YouTube vlogs, and TikTok videos.

The Galaxy A73 5G’s Quad Camera is designed for creators in mind, headlined by the 108MP Wide-Angle lens which captures more light and details for unmatched clarity. This is supported by a series of innovations to ensure that every shot is picture-perfect:

The 108MP remosaic and 12MP binning shots capture more details and brightness, while the Big Pixel Sensor reduces noise so photos are always clear. Hybrid Optic Zoom brings far-away subjects closer without losing image clarity.

Even Instagram Reels and TikTok videos look more professional with Optical Image Stabilization and advanced VDIS technology. They work in sync so footage is always stable and smooth. Enhanced HDR keeps details and colors vibrant, no matter the lighting condition.

Capture the crowd with the 12MP Ultra Wide Camera, customize focus with the 5MP Depth Camera and get closer to the details with the 5MP Macro Camera. The 32MP Front camera on the other hand captures high-resolution selfies and Instagram Stories. Creators may also go live wherever they are thanks to the smartphone’s IP67 rating, which makes it water and dust-resistant.

Social media superstars aren’t always creating content. They also spend time browsing social media to find inspiration and trending challenges. Viewers are transported around the world with the vibrant colors of the 6.7″ Full HD+ Super AMOLED Plus Infinity-O Display. Its 120Hz refresh rate improves video playback, scrolling, and switching between applications on the smartphone, making the viewing experience smooth and even more lifelike.

Maintain an active lifestyle at home with these tips from vivo

There are many ways through which people are coping with feelings of anxiety, depression, boredom and other ill-effects of an extended enhanced community quarantine. One of these is stress-eating.

While understandable, such a lifestyle may not be sustainable in the long run–especially if one has not been exercising. Unfortunately, most gyms and sports facilities won’t be opening anytime soon, so there is really no better way to shed-off excess fat than by adopting exercise habits at home.

Don’t know where to start? Here are simple and easy ways to get your body moving and getting it back into tip-top shape.

Start with simple activities

It would be unwise to instantly go through rigorous exercises and programs without priming your body to go through them. Activate and engage your body through simple activities such as cleaning the house while listening to upbeat music. You can also try meditating just to make sure that your mind is in harmony with your body.

Download Workout apps

The vivo app store has workout apps that contain plenty of programs and exercises. Try apps that include High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) programs where you do a series of repetitions continuously with minimal rest time. While these apps promote quick workouts that last less than 10 minutes, do not be fooled–you will feel like you just ran a marathon.

Head to Facebook for live workout videos

If motivation is what gets you going when it comes to workouts, try doing it together with other online users. Facebook pages of different gyms around the metro now offer both free and paid live online workout classes like yoga and shadow boxing that are sure to shed off a few “quarantine pounds”. If you’re not to keen on working out with strangers, you can always gather your friends for a video call workout session. Just make sure you actually work out and not end up having an “e-numan”–you can always do that at a different time.

Try Tik-Tok dance challenges

If conventional workout routines and exercises aren’t your thing, you can always try creating TikTok videos. Try engaging in a “dance workout” by trying out all the dance challenges created by users in the platform. You will actually sweat buckets trying to perfect the challenges over and over again.

These home-based exercise methods may not be the same as “maxing out” in the gym, but these are great ways to maintain an active lifestyle and fight off the urge to stress-eat during these unprecedented times.

All it takes are a few clicks. You can download the Facebook app and plenty of workout apps using the vivo app store, pre-installed in all vivo mobile devices.
