Huawei Mate7 has a battery life that keeps travelers moving

One major consideration for frequent travelers when choosing a phone is battery life. It's frustrating running out of battery while on a long bus or train ride between cities. You miss out documenting really interesting things you may see along the way, en route to your destination. Plus looking for a power supply when you arrive is an equally frustrating exercise. We all end up bringing bulky and heavy power banks to keep us going.

But there are smart phones that have batteries that last. I previously had a Huawei Ascend Mate 6 and can swear by its impressive battery life. Can't believe they now have the Huawei Mate7 with a 4100 mAh lithium polymer battery in a sleek 7.9 mm body! The battery definitely matches the impressive processing power of the phone. But still, it lasts longer than other smartphones because of its high-density Li-Polymer battery.

And check out the great photos I took with the Huawei Mate7 in Coron, Palawan!

Transitions® Signature™ adaptive lenses for people on the go

I've had to wear glasses since I was a teen. Unfortunately (or should it be fortunately), my grade is too low for laser surgery. So it looks like I'll be stuck with glasses. I've tried contact lenses but these are just too much of a hassle for me.

Having glasses makes it difficult for me to wear shades since I have to bring both pairs all the time when I travel. And that also requires me to change from one to the other when I move from indoors to outside and vice versa. The downside of that is, I tend to lose the shades! Because I move a lot, I've lost a good number of shades when my regular glasses are on.

Once I lost my shades that were in my backpack during a trip to South America. It must have fallen out while it was in the storage compartment of the bus above my seat. I realized when I was looking for them that they were gone. Another time, I was taking public transport here in the Philippines. I had the shades in my hand since I was wearing glasses. And the next thing I knew, I lost them. Feeling bad for spending on shades only to lose them, I decided to stop buying.

But we need shades especially when the sun hurts our eyes. During my recent trip to the Middle East, the sun was just too much! And it was just irritating moving around without shades.

When indoors, the Transitions® Signature™ adaptive lenses are clear 
When I got back, I decided to try out Transitions® Signature™ adaptive lenses. These lenses change shade or tint depending where you are. If you are indoors, they are clear like regular glasses. But when you are outside and the sun is bright, the lenses darken and serve as shades. Fantastic technology! I really don't know why I didn't get them earlier.

You can get from Transitions® Signature™ adaptive lenses all major optical stores. I’m happy that I got these new glasses since the Transitions® Signature™ adaptive lenses are fantastic.

When outdoors, the Transitions® Signature™ adaptive lenses darken depending on the level of sunlight
I had a grand time using my new set of Transitions® Signature™ adaptive lenses during a trip to Cambodia and Vietnam the week after. It was perfect for the indoor conference I attended and was very helpful when we visited the temples. No need for me to buy shades now!
