Poblacion Market Central Davao
A new lifestyle destination in Davao opened its doors offering more shopping, dining, and entertainment experience. Alsons Development and Investment Corporation (Alsons Dev) launched Poblacion Market Central. This new hub showcases a variety of art, antiques, souvenir shops, and local restaurants.
Poblacion Market Central Davao

Alsons Dev built the famous Aldevinco shopping center on the corner of Claro M Recto Street and Roxas Avenue in 1965. Early in 2022, Alsons Dev closed the old shopping center and relocated its tenants to Poblacion, providing better facilities, marketing support, and foot traffic.

You will still see the colorful Mindanaoan textiles, antiques, and pearl shops from Aldevinco in the new Poblacion Market Central. Now with a food hall that serves delectable dishes and drinks served by local restaurants like Majid's Kebab and Bo's Coffee.

At the atrium area, a massive mural by Mindanaoan contemporary artist Kublai Millan stands to welcome customers. I'm glad to be part of the unveiling last August 15 with Kublai Millan himself, our Mayor Baste Duterte, Alson Dev Team, and other government officials.

"Alsons Dev is happy to host and showcase the work of Davao's best creatives. Whether they make food, sculptures, weaves and textiles, or handicrafts, we believe that testing their concepts in a place like Poblacion Market Central contributes to a retail and cultureal scene that is meant to gain national recognition. Poblacion, true to its tagline, is a place where the heritage of Davao meets the possibilities of a hip and ever-evolving market," says Miguel A. dominguez, Alsons Dev Director.

realme 9 pro plus jexxhinggo

We have a new smartphone to review today! Join me as we unbox and review the new realme 9 Pro Plus.

I love the design of the realme 9 pro plus. The back design is shiny and has glittering effect. We have it in Aurora green but it is also available in Midnight Black and Sunrise Blue that features a Light Shift design that changes color from blue to red when exposed to sunlight.
realme 9 pro plus jexxhinggo

At the back you can see the triple camera set up with LED flash and a simple realme logo below. We have the punch hole camera at the upper left corner of the screen and a call speaker that serves as a secondary speaker too.
realme 9 pro plus jexxhinggo

On the left we have the dual nano sim slot. Unfortunately, there's no space for a microSD card. The volume buttons are also located on the left. On the right we only have the lock and power button.

Above we have an extra microphone. And below we have the main speaker, type C port, main microphone, and an audio port.

This is the slimmest realme phone right now! It's just 7.99mm thick. It's not smudge proof though but you can use the free jelly case. But for me, I want to use it as is because I love the feel in my hands.

The realme 9 PRO plus has a 6.4 inch FHD plus Super AMOLED display with 90hz refresh rate. It has a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and 20:9 Aspect Ratio. The bezels are thin except at the chin part but it's not distracting to me. It's running on Android 12 out of the box and a new realme UI 3.0 is ready to install. I love the customization features especially the Always-On display.

This phone is already equipped with 5G connectivity and has a MeditaTek Dimensity 920 chipset. It has a Vapor Chamber Cooling System that keeps the temperature of the phone and my favorite, the O-Haptics feature. It has a different but cool vibration when you type.

Now let's talk about it's camera. Again it has a triple camera set up. The main camera is a SONY IMX766 50MP, the ultrawide camera is 8MP, and the macro lens is 2MP. It is also equipped with an OIS and EIS for more stable shots. While the selfie camera has 16MP.

I actually love the shots I took using the realme 9 Pro plus. It's vibrant, crisp, and detailed. The contrast for me is just fine. It adds detail in every photo.

I was so impressed with it's night mode shots. And especially when I took this selfie shot around 12 noon. So it was so bright that I was against the light. My back view was all white when I saw it on the screen but after I took the shot, it adjusted and as you can see, you can see the park behind me. It's as if I'm photoshopped in this picture.

For night shots, it's true that the realme 9 pro plus can #CaptureTheLight.

It has street photo mode which I really like. The long exposure makes these awesome shots. It has starry mode, macro shot, panorama, and a lot more.

I like the Portrait shots too. It's clean and you can adjust the blur intensity. For the video quality, I will upload a vlog about that soon.

The realme 9 pro plus has a 4,500mAh battery and has a 60W SuperDart charger. I was able to charge it from 20% to 100% for 40 minutes only. So far I still had around 30% when I constantly use it as my main phone for a day. I also noticed that when I started using the Always-On display, the battery drops down faster.

The realme 9 Pro Plus is now available for P23,990 in all realme stores nationwide and on Lazada.
