The Samsung Galaxy A54 5G and Galaxy A34 5G Has ‘It’ Says Gen-Z It-Girl Claudia Barretto

Claudia Barretto is the quintessential Gen-Z It Girl for many reasons, but it is her creative nature as a musician, podcast host, social-media powerhouse and fashionista that truly makes her a force to be reckoned with. While many of us may be scratching our heads wondering how she does it, Claudia shares that she has an awesome secret in her front pocket. Yup, you’ve guessed it - her mobile phone! “A good phone can be [an] essential tool in your daily routine - helping you stay organized, connected and productive,” shared Claudia.

The Galaxy A54 5G and A34 5G series has been described as the Gen Z’s ‘it phone’ with its funky colors to its creative capabilities and powerful processor, which is paramount to Claudia. Here are all ways the Galaxy A Series has impressed Claudia Barretto!

Impeccable Performance, Battery and Connectivity

Whether she’s in the studio working on new music, drafting ideas for her podcast or on her way to hang out with her friends, it’s clear that she needs a phone with impeccable performance. “It’s crucial to me as a Gen-Z because I tend to rely heavily on my phone for a variety of tasks,” she says, “I have multitasking habits, and I expect my phones to be able to keep up with my fast-paced lifestyle,” said Claudia.

Although she may be known for her heartfelt music, in regard to connectivity and battery life, Claudia sang nothing but praises for the new features, explaining, “I love the longer battery life because I am always on the go and rarely have the time to recharge my phone. I’m so glad that I can spend the day worry-free.”

This stands true considering the super-fast charging offered by both devices under the A series. Getting up to 50% at only 30 minutes of charging and more than 2 days of power with a single charge means that Claudia and Gen-Z alike need not worry about interruptions when on the go. Furthermore, the Galaxy A series comes with fast 5G connectivity for awesome downloads, streaming and gaming activities. On top of this, the Galaxy A54 5G and A34 5G guarantee up to four generations of OS upgrades and five years of security updates, meaning users have access to the latest software and security to maximize the phone’s lifecycle - talk about built to last!

Creative Features for your main character moments

Claudia is known for her own creativity, often immersing herself in new creative endeavors for her own personal growth. Exploring new creative outlets is imperative for renewing her vigor towards what she loves, as she says, “Another thing that is important to me is social media integration since it’s become a big part of our daily lives.”

In particular, as a mental health advocate and musician, Claudia feels strongly about being an authentic storyteller when it comes to the media she shares. One of the best ways Claudia does this with her Galaxy A series is by utilizing the features that allow her to reduce blur and noise for stunning photo quality and eliminate distractions, so her avid followers can focus on exactly what she’s trying to communicate.

Whether it is funny TikTok’s with her friends (including fellow Samsung It-Girl Juliana Gomez) or showing off her sleek OOTDs on Instagram, Claudia demonstrates the need for a phone to best capture herself authentically. Fortunately, the A series is able to help her capture her life from all angles. The Galaxy A54 in particular has 50MP OIS Main (F1.8), 12MP Ultra-Wide (F2.2), and 5MP Macro (F2.4) rear cameras which means Claudia can explore the full extent of her creativity through different shots and angles.

Since I am highly visual, having a good camera is essential. This is the best way I get to capture important events and milestones in my life,” she shares. Luckily for Claudia, the Galaxy A54 5G and A34 5G series delivers stunning images with impeccable quality and also comes with a wide range of creative editing tools which make for awesome photos and videos, night shots in particular allows for users to capture more detail thanks to Night mode which increases the camera’s pixel size.

Gen Z Eye Candy

When it comes to her personal style, Claudia isn’t afraid to mix it up. Perhaps it’s a part of her creative nature, especially as a young entrepreneur who owns a personal coffee brand. Having described her style as “classic but comfortable,” she still admits that her musical roots inspire her to dress a little “cooler.” This is why, according to Claudia, her new phone is the perfect accessory. The young style icon gushed, “I love the trendy new colors as they elevator mirror selfies and even sometimes match the outfits I put on.

So you may just catch the A series new design in one of Claudia’s posts as the Galaxy A54 5G and a A34 5G also comes in trendy colorways - Awesome Lime, Awesome Graphite with the Awesome Violet as an online exclusive offer for the Galaxy A54 5G, while the Galaxy A34 5G has Awesome Graphite and Awesome Violet. It’s clear to see that even with her preference for laid-back looks, the Galaxy A series is the perfect pop of color for any OOTD.

The Galaxy A Series is awesome for me because it is suited to my lifestyle and personality!” Claudia announces, but it is clear to see with its functional and fashionable new feature, the Samsung A series is awesome for everyone.

With your own Galaxy A series smartphone, you can be as dynamic and creative as Claudia! The Galaxy A54 5G costs PHP 26,990 for the 256GB model and PHP 24,990 for the 128GB model, while the Galaxy A34 5G costs PHP 21,990 for the 256GB model and PHP 19,990 for the 128GB model.

Both devices have fantastic offers, such as Home Credit's flexible payment options and 0% Credit Card installment plans. You can save up to PHP 10,150 if you trade in your old device. There are also bundle deals with other Samsung devices: get 50% off the Galaxy Buds2 Pro and Galaxy Buds2, and 30% off the Galaxy Watch5 Series. In addition, you will continue to receive a Free Travel Adapter with their devices.

Gloc-9 Reminisces His Humble Beginnings In “Kamusta Ka Na”

Gloc-9 has a brand new offering this month of May!

Life comes full circle as our Paboritong Makata reminisces his humble beginnings as a dreaming lad from the municipality of Binangonan in Rizal, looking up at the starlit night wishing that one day he’ll become part of the constellation of famous rap stars. And from that certain perspective, he crafted a song called “Kamusta Ka Na”.

The song is simple yet profound introspection. It is a monologue where Gloc-9 chats to his young self; looking back to the tune when he took the road less travelled.

The journey of the seemingly countless rejections, armed with only his unwavering belief that with each trial he surpassed is one step closer to making his dream become a reality. (OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO HERE)

Success is in the journey and what a ride it has been! Twenty-five years and he’s still riding the waves. According to his manager, Asintada Management’s chairman and CEO Thea Pollisco aka Mrs. 9, feeling age creeping in and yet he still spurred to keep going but this time as a beacon, trailblazing his way for the young rap artists to follow, stoking within each of them the very same fire that once upon a time he had.

Recently, Gloc-9 has been actively releasing several other projects, including the launch of their first collaboration with Greyhoundz since 2006, “XXV” and a song called “Kwentong Barbero” with newly signed UR artist Ramdiss.

The single artwork of the song was made by CLMarts. It’s out on your favorite digital streaming platforms!
