I just uninstalled it. Can't make sense of what it needs the mic for. Besides, I've never used the app before as it's inconvenient to top up. :)


well. it has a new promo now where you get rebates for purchases in robinsons owned establishments.  seems to be really worth it.  how inconvenient is it to top up?  i top up on 7eleven and its quite fast and easy.  i even used this to pay bills.  i noticed that the posting of payment is faster(plus a rebate!  hehehe) when i first top up my paymaya and pay there.  instead of paying my bill through 7eleven cliqq store.  i had to wait about 2weeks for the payment to reflect on my bill while i only wait 3 days when i use paymaya.  sobrang dami nya na promo.  the one with robinsons is where you purchase in their store and you get 30% or 20% rebate on any purchase as long as you use paymaya QR.  maximum of 500 for the 30%.  and its per store per day.  even the supermarket is included in that promo.  but max rebate for that is 300.  i havent tried the robinsons promo yet but the bill rebates and even load rebates were real.  they even had a promo where you load 50 and you would get 50 back as a rebate.  its as if you topped up 50 to buy something else since the load you purchase gets returned to you.  plus, there is the mvprewards card which is free

so it's revealed just a few minutes ago that Zenfone 5q will carry a P16,995 pricetag. reasonable for the specs, i think. but from the live presentation what bothers me is the prevalent AI that monitors everything from the user's activity, sleep patterns and even the environment. that can't be helpful for the battery life. considering how buggy my Zenfone 3 Max's software is, i highly doubt Asus has optimized the AI so that it plays well with the battery.

so nope, not gonna buy that.

next week, i'm gonna replace my Zenfone 3 Max with Huawei Nova 2i. according to a friend, the camera's good, Mobile Legends runs well, and battery is decent enough. then i'll send the Zenfone to be repaired. i'll sell it after.

got me a Huawei Nova 2i yesterday. battery drained 1% while i was asleep (10 pm to 5 am). much better than my ZF3 Max's 40% drain.

the screen's more saturated with color, camera takes much better pics and i could run Mobile Legends on high settings with smooth FPS (ML on ZF3 was only at medium and it still stutters often). Nova also doesn't heat up as much, even while playing games.

worth the price.
