(Must-Have) TORQUE Mobile EGO Series Boost Edition Smartphones - Pocket Friendly at Higher Level Upgrade


TORQUE MOBILE, leading and widely-recognized brand of Android smartphones and tablets in the Philippines, consistently challenging the status quo and pressing the limits of what’s possible with its various electronics offerings. In line with this, it recently released a full line-up of TORQUE EGO SERIES BOOST EDITION with compelling upgrades so users can enjoy major features, perks, and conveniences of a smartphones at a price they an afford.

Much like the human ego, we view the now-ubiquitous smartphone as something that is here to stay,” said Chris Uyco, CEO and chief innovator at Torque Mobile.

The long-term vision for the Torque EGO series is for it to be treated much like a person’s pride, identity, or self-esteem. Something that will always be around, being shaped by personal decisions and circumstance, and needing the occasional boost every once in a while.”

 


ANDROID BOOST

Starting with the EGO Zero, Torque underlines its plan to get fully-working smartphones into the hands of more and more Filipinos. The Torque EGO Zero runs a stable version of the Android software, giving it advanced features for messaging, media playback, and Internet communications. You can forget about typing on a clunky plastic keyboard where the printed letters and numbers eventually fade over time, because the touchscreen will let you do all the things that you need. The EGO Zero is currently one of the most affordable smartphones available in the Philippines, and is the most affordable smartphone that Torque has ever made.

 
PERFORMANCE BOOST

For those who demand more performance out of their smartphone, a quad-core chip is most necessary. For this, Torque created the EGO Surf S and EGO Max S, featuring 4- and 5-inch screens, respectively. Both phones are equipped with 1.3GHz quad-core chips, 4GB internal storage, and microSD card support, easily handling apps that are normally used by smartphone users everyday. It doesn’t matter if you just left the house or are already heading back from the office: you’ll be able to view your Facebook, check your Twitter and Instagram, or quickly send text messages and more with either of these two phones.


MEMORY BOOST

And as for avid multi-taskers, Torque has prepared the EGO Surf i and EGO Max i, both of which come with 1GB RAM as standard. With these phones, running multiple apps at the same time shouldn't be a problem, and switching from one app to another quickly won't be an issue.

Whether you want to play music in the background as you check the news, or reply to a chat thread in the middle of playing your favorite mobile game, you wouldn’t need to worry. As a bonus, the phones also include 8GB storage space, with support for extra storage through microSD cards up to 32GB.

 
CAMERA BOOST

For many people, the most important part of any smartphone is the camera. That's why Torque created the EGO Pro and EGO Max, both featuring 8-megapixel rear auto-focus cameras and 5-megapixel front cameras for superb photos, videos, and selfies.

The EGO Pro is unique as the only 4.5-inch phone in the Torque EGO series line-up, and also boasts a combination of a quad-core chip, 1GB RAM, and 8GB storage. Meanwhile, the Torque EGO Max sports a bigger, 5-inch HD screen, while running on the same processor, memory, and storage combo mentioned earlier.

With their 8MP rear auto-focus cameras, these phones can be used for day-to- day snaps that are meant for Facebook or Instagram. Filter or no filter, pictures are sure to come out looking clean, clear, and share-worthy, especially with the use of the convenient LED camera flash.

 
ENTERTAINMENT BOOST

Entertainment can come in all shapes and sizes, but if there's one thing that most people can agree on, it's that TV absolutely has to be one of them. For Torque, that is the purpose of having the EGO Beat TV in the line-up: to offer free mobile TV wherever you go. Now you can just whip out your smartphone whenever you want to, and pull out the built-in TV antenna to start watching local TV channels for free. It also has front- and rear-facing 3MP cameras for your quick selfies and mobile photography sessions. It’s an all-around entertainment device.

 


CONNECTIVITY BOOST

And of course, as smartphones are Internet-connected devices, their wireless antennas are of utmost importance. To that end, Torque has included a selection of high-speed data handsets, in the form of the EGO Chat, EGO Boost, and EGO Zoom 4G.

Both the EGO Chat and EGO Boost feature built-in high-speed 3G data chips, capable of supporting the country’s fast 3G networks as well as ubiquitous 802.11 a/b/g Wi-Fi. Now, you can actually enjoy going online and checking your favorite websites, thanks to instant high-speed connections. When you’re indoors, just use Wi-Fi. But when you’re outside, 3G is your friend.

Meanwhile, the EGO Zoom 4G comes with support for all local 4G LTE networks. And not only that, but it’s also the most powerful and feature-packed model in the entire line-up. For its screen, the Zoom 4G uses a 5-inch HD IPS display, while it relies on a quad-core MT6375 processor with 1GB RAM and 8GB storage for its performance. Its rear camera is fitted with an 8MP auto-focus sensor, while the front uses a 5MP camera. Both of them have an accompanying LED flash, on the back as well as the front. And to top it all off, it ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow as standard. It is comfortably Torque’s most advanced smartphone yet.

The EGO Zoom 4G can basically offer all the features of every other EGO series handset, all in a lightweight and compact package. It can be used to stream online music, play HD movies, capture sharp photos, and access all forms of social media. It’s your well-connected companion.

 
TABLET BOOST

Part of the line-up is a selection of highly-reliable Android tablets, namely the EGO Tab S, EGO Tab Q, EGO Phab, and EGO Phab 3G. Depending on your needs, you may find a suitable model from these whether you’re looking for something with only Wi-Fi or you prefer one with built-in 3G networking. The tablets come pre-installed with either Android 4.4 KitKat or Android 5.1 Lollipop, and can be used for a variety of tasks and applications like watching online videos, reading e-books, viewing photo albums, or online chat, depending on the model.

 

The entire Torque EGO series smartphone line-up, including the Torque EGO tablets, will be available starting October 2016, with prices ranging from 999 Pesos to 3,499 Pesos.

The Walking Dead S7 Premieres October 24 on FOX


"Who did Negan kill?"

That has been the question plaguing the minds of The Walking Dead fans around the world following the cliffhanger ending to season 6 earlier this year. Fans don't have to wait much longer to find out with the highly anticipated Season 7 premiering on FOX on October 24th at 11:35 AM and 8:55 PM, on the same day as the US premiere.

Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead is an award-winnning drama series and a global phenonmenon, following Rick Grimes and his group as they navigate life and dangers after a zombie apocalypse.

And to kick off this latest season, FOX is launching 'The Riding Dead,' an exclusive VR campaign that places fans in the world of a zombie outbreak. "You've picked the wrong day to be stuck in a traffic jam…" says FOX as the premise of the stunt.

Partnering with Samsung and GrabCar, FOX will offer passengers an opportunity to experience their ride immersed amongst 'walkers,' as zombies are commonly referred to in the series, using Virtual Reality technology, promising a ride they will never forget.

Charo Espedido, Head of Marketing and Programming at FOX Networks Group Philippines, said the campaign aims to excite new and die-hard fans alike.

"This campaign was created specifically for fans in Southeast Asia with all the VR content shot in the region as well. We wanted to bring new fans into The Walking Dead world but also heighten the anticipation amongst the fans who have been following the series over the last 6 seasons, especially given the massive cliffhanger in last season's finale episode. Fans will be mesmerized by the VR experience, and avid fans will also notice certain hints and references to the series storyline that we've purposely dropped in. Make sure to look for them!"

The Riding Dead campaign will run in Manila from October 21 to November 17, 2016. Fans can book a ride through GrabCar's mobile app and keep a look out for the specially customized The Riding Dead GrabCars on the road.

Torque Reveals Why Elisse Joson Could Be the Most Credible Mobile Phone Endorser


"Why not?" Chris Uyco, CEO and chief innovator at Torque Mobile, reacted when asked by media during the grand announcement of Torque EGO series Boost Edition last October 13.




In conjunction to the media launch of the entire Torque EGO series smartphone line-up, the leading maker of Android-based tablets in the Philippines, also revealed its newest brand ambassador - ex-PBB Season 7 housemate Elisse Joson.

According to Uyco, Torque already signed Elisse even before she entered the PBB House as they already seen her potential to represent the product very well. In fact "when we released the teaser photo online, even her face is covered, it already gathered thousands of likes and shares on social media. That's how influential she is,"  

Elisse, talking before the media after the launch, said her heart is overwhelmed with joy knowing that despite her status as a newbie to the industry, people behind the brand already put their trust on them.

"Kahit hinde pa naman ako ganun kakilala noon...to be part of Torque even before PBB, nakakatuwa po kase napakaswerte ko po, napaka-blessed ko po kase they trusted me with this one." she said. 

Millennials right now are so dependent on gadgets. Study says that these people wouldn't mind  spending extra so long as the brand meets their demands. In her case, what made her choose Torque over other cellphone brand.

"Being a millenial lagi akong naka-cellphone talaga. Text, internet, calls, social media, parang nandito lahat [while looking at her Torque mobile phone] yung kailangan ko. Importante sa akin ang may reliable phone. Saka like yung sa schedule ko po, I am blessed to have a lot of projects in the past couple of months and yung Zoom 4G is a big help to manage my schedule so I never missed any of it. Mahilig din po akong mag-selfie ang itong Torque is really great for me kase the front camera has flash.

"Super bilis din ng internet niya. Kase social media is really important to us and dun ako nakaka-reach out to my lovely supporters kaya it really helps me to have fast internet. Ang dami talagang naitulong nito sa lifestyle ko." she added.

When asked if how reliable is her Torque mobile phone in keeping in touch with rumored boyfriend McCoy de Leon, Elisse said, "Dahil nga mabilis yung internet sa Torque Zoom 4G ko, yung viber messages namin tuloy-tuloy."
