Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

5 things I LOVE about my new Smart iPhone 5s

The Smart iPhone 5 I got last 2013 was one of the best things that happened to me. It allowed me to work on the go and to stay in touch with my clients who prefer to talk on Viber and Facebook. It takes amazing pictures, only a small amount of precious space in my bag, and looks super stylish too! It's everything I want and need in a phone.

Thanks to Smart though, I was able to upgrade to the an iPhone 5s. I know this is a beauty blog, but bear with me as I talk about why this gadget is one of the best things I've gotten my hands on this year (so far)!


It's gold and gorgeous. It took a while but I'm so happy that Smart found me the color I originally wanted! If you know me then you know I always wear something gold. It's a color that looks good with my skintone since I'm very warm-toned. I also love seeing gold in cosmetics packaging as it whispers luxe whenever I see it. 

Physical prettiness aside though, gold also reminds me to excel in everything I do. Yes, cheesy, but it's true!


It takes awesome pictures and videos. The iPhone 5 takes great images already but the 5s is just on a whole different level! I'm not a techie but I can really see the difference. The 5s has an 8 MP camera, can shoot in burst mode (or x number of pictures just by holding the button), and can take videos in slow motion.

If you follow my Instagram, you may have noticed how the pictures are looking even better. lately. This wallpaper? I just took a pic of it with my phone! The iPhone 5s makes it easier for me to take FOTDs, OOTDs, and swatches too. 


Faster processing. Apps load faster therefore it's easier to multi-task. I can switch between different apps without losing a beat. This is important because I often have to deal with several work-related things at the same time.

Better connectivity. I'm on an unlimited data plan with Smart - it doesn't make sense not to be if you're on an iPhone too! The 5s offers better wireless connections as it now accommodates more networks around the world. 

Smart is super reliable so I can connect to 3G or LTE 90% of the time. I just tether my phone to my Macbook when I'm working outside!


Longer battery life. The iPhone 5 is only good for half a day, the way I use it. :/ That's probably the biggest con for me. But with the 5s, my battery lasts the whole day (about 8-12 hours depending on how heavy my usage is). Now I don't have to bring my portable chargers or turn off my 3G/LTE just to extend the phone's battery life.

So there you go. ^_^ Hope you enjoyed the photos, and of course don't forget to check out this info on the #SmartiPhone5s.

Let's all have a fantastic week!
