In today’s fast-paced lifestyle, a smartphone is a must-have appendage to keep up with one’s daily grind. But one feature that rarely takes the spotlight, yet very much deserves it, is Fast Charging.
Go-getters would know that the last thing that they want is for their smartphone to slow them down. And the best smartphone of choice to date, that will be up and running as you are is the Vivo V17Pro.
Powered with 4,100 mAh battery, the V17Pro guarantees long battery life despite multi-app use. In layman’s term, one can enjoy a reliable phone that is versatile enough for quick document work, incessant communications via messaging apps, constant browsing, and even games, without it dying on you just after a few hours.
The Fast charging feature is the life hack you need, especially if your mantra is Rest and Reset. It’s most important to have a phone that will only require as little time to reset as you are if you’re the image of up-and-about.
There was a time when taking selfies was as basic as capturing one’s close-up image, often to highlight an appearance or a spectacular scenery in the background. While selfie shooters yearned to capture more elements in their frames, they were limited mostly by the technology of the front-facing cameras at that time.
In recent years, advancements in optics technology and software development have given birth to front-facing cameras that offer better resolution and image quality, as well as AI-enhanced photography apps. These, in turn, have transformed selfie shooting, from a mere trend, to a skill, even an artform.
Today, companies like Vivo, are taking the lead in pioneering technology that enhances the smartphone experience. This includes taking selfie shooting to new and higher levels.
Just a few months after unveiling its V15 Pro with the world’s first 32MP elevating selfie camera and an AI triple rear camera, the leading global technology company has already launched V17 Pro, the second flagship smartphone in its V series of midrange smartphones.
Now, improving from its predecessor, the V17 Pro boasts of another world’s first, an exclusive pair of front cameras—a 32MP main camera with f/2.0 aperture and 8MP 105-degree super-wide-angle camera—which ensures clearer and fuller selfies, in whatever environment.
Much like the V15’s selfie optics, the V17 Pro’s dual front cameras are tucked behind the smartphone’s notch-less Super AMOLED Ultra FullView™ Display, nestled in a wide pop-up mechanism that elevates as quickly as it retracts.
With the premium smartphone’s dual elevating selfie camera, users will never need selfie sticks to capture “groufies” or the splendid panoramic view behind them. All they have to do is access the super-wide-angle camera and “shoot beyond limits”.
For nighttime selfies, the front camera gets ample support from Selfie Softlight that lights up dark images and an exclusive Super Night Selfie mode which captures and combines multiple frames into one image to make one’s face stand out, especially in low-light conditions.
There is also a “Pose Master” feature which suggest several poses to match various photo scenes and backgrounds, to make one’s selfies even more creative.
Aside from its elevating dual selfie camera and AI powered and enhanced selfie apps, the V17 Pro also boasts of AI quad rear cameras—48MP main camera, 8MP super wide-angle, 2MP bokeh, and 2MP super macro camera—which can capture super macro images from a distance of just 4 cm., and super wide clear images, even in dark surroundings.
A selfie (right) using the Vivo V17 Pro’s Super Wide-Angle camera captures a fuller background, compared to a typical selfie.

This screenshot was taken from my FB Post, 30 September 2019. The effective date of my resignation at work. Looking back, you may check my journey on finding a new work first. 🙂
Working in a BPO industry is not easy like others would regard to this as “Easy Job” There are several factors one has to consider if you wanted to be in this industry. Being a ‘call center agent’ have open me up to new learning experiences.
Being a call center virgin (one who has no experience working prior in a BPO), I am nuisance to terms and jargon in theproduction floor ( is a place where agents attend calls), RTM ( Real-time monitoring ) in charge would shout ‘ Dez, ACW one minute! That was very new to me on my first day in the production floor. I was like thinking ” What the heck is ACW?”
ACW is one of the most important responsibilities when working in a call center. It refers to the tasks required from a customer service representative after a call has ended and how long it takes for a representative to complete their post-call tasks”
” Huy, auto-in ka na!” a co-worker nudged on me. “Di pa ko tapos mag notes ano ba yan!” …. and so long a lists of terms that I get to know in the floor! Madali lang naman, just GMG! Haha! Kung ano yung GMG? Just check this link: https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=GMG 🙂
What do one expect from being a newbie? Of course, failing stats! Haha! Thanks to my TL (Team Lead/er) who did guide me through our coaching sessions, call listening and of course, finding the root cause on why I keep on failing which is;
Filipinism- English words or phrases resulting from the literal translation of Filipinos of English terms. They may not be necessarily grammatically incorrect but may not be comprehensible to native English speakers.
Voice Diction- is word choice, or the style of speaking that a writer, speaker, or character uses. The diction that you use when you speak or write should be matched to purpose or audience.
and one of the most important factor is CONFIDENCE. The way you deliver your spiels will definitely connect you to the person on the other line.
But of course, after failing, you have to level-up. Once you get the hang on how things work around with the process, you start to achieve small accomplishments one after another.
“Top Care Agent, Top Resolution Specialists for the month of…” Those are music to your ears. You get to have certificates, acknowledgement, a clap from fellow agents.. Haha! Kidding, you get incentives as well…
Here are some metrics from my recent account that you need to hit to get the P4P (pay-for-performance/ incentive) Or in agents layman’s term is extra-money, moohla, funds for your kikay-kit, pang rubber shoes, pang starbucks, pang date, pang- Palawan/Cebuana kay Mother-Tita-Tito-Kuya-Ate-Bunso-Lolo-Lola sa province na panay ang kumusta sa’yo pag payday! 🙂
Qualifier for P4P(Pay for Performance)
No second Written Warning
NPS– Net Promoter Score®, or NPS®, measures customer experience and predicts business growth. This proven metric transformed the business world and now provides the core measurement for customer experience management programs the world round. Meaning from HERE
AHT– is a call center metric for the average duration of one transaction, typically measured from the customer’s initiation of the call and including any hold time, talk time and related tasks that follow the transaction. AHT is a prime factor when deciding call center staffing levels. From HERE
(Call Center) QA– is a process that can help ensure customer interactions are aligned with business goals. QA (Quality Assurance) monitoring aims to identify common customer issues, improve customer experience, and help standardize communication processes with customers From HERE
… and one of the most important but most often used and abused metrics madalas eto na lang ang kulang kaya di mo nameet target mo.
REL – Reliablity (Self explanatory ano po?) Attendance. Kakayahan mong gumising ng madaling araw at pumasok sa tamang oras ng hindi nalelate at gumamit ng Alibis Like ‘ Wala po akong masakyan- walang jeep, bus, taxi, grab,angkas, de-padyak na dumadaan! kanina pa ko naghihintay ng masasakyan like mga 2 hours. 🙂 di nag alarm CP ko, Di ako nagising, wala pong tubig sa amin! Wala na po ako damit masuot kase nasa labahin lahat, Traffic! sa alas dos hanggang alas kwatro ng madaling araw??! Masama pakiramdam like ‘me sakit po kase- asawa/nanay/tatay/tita/tito/si panganay, bunso, gitnang anak/ lolo/lola/ kapatid na babae, kapatid na lalake/ friend na babae/ friend na lalake- friend na LGBT –lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender! Ay meron pa pala, may sakit po kase pet ko na dog/cat/ monkey/ snaaake! as in ahas? need irush sa vet! Nag away po kase kami ng … same characters ng mga may sakit above 😂
But sometimes, we just don’t really feel going to work at times. We all have our reasons why we fail at some point in Reliability but we also have to think that we are being paid to work and let’s not judge our superiors or blame them if they are strictly implementing these things because at the end of the day we have to comply and we did amend to it. OR if it is really a serious matter to attend to that needs your absence, so be it. Be absent and just make up on the things you missed next time.
I’ll be missing all the dramas in the production floor – irate customer-irate agent relationship! irate agent-irate team lead relationship, irate team lead-irate manager relationship, irate agent-irate agent relationship. Haha!
But I’ll be leaving you for now with my unforgettable Boboos in the floor!

GUYS, 75 CALLS WAITING AHOD PLEASE ! (exaggerated na sa amin yung ganito kadami que pero sa ibang center 100 plus calls)
AHOD (All hands on DECK) – instances where there would be a sudden spike on queues, you can tap admins to take in calls for the meantime until the queue stabilizes. In short, bilisan at i-wrap up mo na call mo para maubos na yung call ques at AVAIL na! haha!
AVAIL Definition: Also known as idle time, available time is time spent by agents ready and waiting to take calls. In short again, time to make Chika or Chismis to your team mates/ seatmates. 😂
I love queuing! Said no one (agent) ever! 😂
