Like what I always say, TP Friends, the true meaning of Christmas is giving and sharing. And I believe that giving becomes all the more meaningful when we choose to share not just any item that we can easily part with but the very best that we can possibly give.

O+ Imagine

TP Friends, in line with today's celebration of Christmas, Santa Claus himself - via our #OPlusTPWishUponAReindeer Yuletide Gadget Bonanza - will be giving away a brand new limited edition flagship release, O+ Imagine, complete with accessories including the exclusive Sennheiser earphones made specifically for O+ handsets.

O+ Imagine

According to our friends from the American company, O+ Imagine represents the very best that the company has to offer in this product category both in terms of design and technical specifications thus far.

The flagship smartphone features a gorgeous and stunning glass-metal-glass-sandwich design language reminiscent of Sony's new generation Xperia handsets. Both the front and the back panels of the device flaunt scratch-resistant and shatter-proof Carbon Glass while the frame of the body itself is crafted from anodized aluminum. These elements - along with the O+ Imagine's lightweight 134 grams construction and ultra-thin 7.8 millimeters form factor - give it an air corporate sophistication and understated elegance.

The phone's visually arresting exterior is perfectly complemented by its powerhouse innards and technical specifications. O+ Imagine sports a 5-inch Full HD IPS OGS display panel (but really, looking at it and comparing it with the screens of my other handsets, I think it's SuperAMOLED) and smoothly runs Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean operating system with stock user interface (plus O+ customized set of icons and wallpapers and camera application) with its Quad Core 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex A7 CPU and 357 MHz PowerVR SGX GPU based MediaTek MT6589 Turbo SoC.

O+ Imagine likewise features 2 GB of RAM for efficient multitasking, a whopping 32 GB of non-expandable internal storage, a 13 MegaPixel autofocus camera with LED flash and BSI sensor, 5 MegaPixel front cam also with backside illuminated sensor for brighter and clearer selfies, Full HD 30fps video recorder, WiFi, Bluetooth and 3G HSPA+ connectivity support, and non-removable 2,000 mAh Li-Po battery pack delivering up to 8 hours of uptime with mixed usage including playing games, texting, calling, updating social networking sites, browsing the web, listening to music, taking photos, and recording videos.

Most of his reindeers have completed their giveaways and of course, Santa Claus is not to be left behind when it comes to the Holiday gift-giving. "I've decided to raffle off the best smartphone that O+ has currently, Mark," Santa Claus told me. And so he's now giving all TP Friends a chance to own the O+ Imagine via his own Rafflecopter contest. "And because it's Christmas, I will add more options to send entries," he added.

The promo price of this handset is Php 16,995 and for that amount you will already get the free Sennheiser earphones, which come exclusively with this release. I invite you to give a unit a test run at an O+ store near you; I promise you, you will fall in love with it. I sure did -- at first sight. Thank you, Santa Claus! Merry Christmas, TP Friends! God bless us all!
