Jack of Trades and Travel: David Guison and the Lenovo Vibe X
When you have rising blogger and photographer like David Guison, who has an interest in lots of things from photography and fashion to food and travel, you need a smartphone that comes with a diverse range of features to match his needs—and this can only be the Lenovo Vibe X.
Whether it’s about expression his style in fashion, perfecting his craft in photography, trippin’ around the city, or indulging in his love for food, David Guison seems to be everywhere in the Manila scene.
It seems that pursuing his interests has become a lifestyle and even a career for the 23-year-old blogger and photographer. And a big part of his lifestyle is reflected in the different choices that he makes for his personal gadgets. This is where Lenovo steps in in his life, as it is that one technology brand that evolves with his lifestyle and interests.
The brand ambassador of life
David Guison, sometimes referred to by friends as Dave or DG, has come a long way from being a casual blogger who only documented (and re-blogged) things that interested him to becoming his own person and opinion leader in the digital scene.
The shy kid from the old days has not only become an inspiration to his peers, but he has also become one who could pursue his love for travel, which comes with the territory of blogging.
“I’ve been spending a lot of my time travelling. It’s something that I really enjoy doing and I’m happy my blog is getting a lot of travel opportunities,” says David. “I get to experience new culture and I get to be creative in bringing new content for the blog by combining my love for style and travel.”
As expected, those days of traveling come with a lot of documentation, from snapping pictures to making sure that he’s still connected to his fan base. After all, the work of a blogger doesn’t only start and end from 9-to-5—it’s a lifetime’s worth of pursuing a passion.
Because of this, David finds comfort in the fact that his Lenovo Vibe X, to which he is an ambassador for, is able to keep up with the all-around demands.
“In this day and age, we feel the need to document everything. From the outfit we’re wearing, the events we go to, even the food we eat!” he says. “I use my Lenovo Vibe X to check and reply to emails when I’m on the road. When I wait for my next meeting or event, I play my favorite games and apps on my phone.”

When the not-so-techie meets the easy-to-handle smartphone
Of course, owning devices and being able to easily understand technology are two different things, and David admits that, even though he has a multimedia arts background as his undergraduate degree, he’s hardly a techie who’s knowledgeable about the latest gadgets.
“My friends think I’m a noob when it comes to gadgets. I guess if you compare me with their knowledge on gadgets, I’d have to agree with them. I don’t really have the patience to play around with my gadgets,” he says.
Still, that doesn’t mean that David doesn’t enjoy his own techie toys, as he confesses to even having three different cameras—“one for my outfit photos, one for events, and one for travel”—and acquiring the latest gadgets that he needs in his line of work.
It’s also an added bonus that the Lenovo Vibe X, though having the latest technology in smartphone today, is actually handy and easy enough to use.
“I’m happy with my Lenovo Vibe X because it looks amazing. It’s fast and pretty much has everything I need and want in a smartphone.”
Always on the go, always up to date
Juggling all of the things that David does on a daily level is no quick work, which means that he also need the kind of gadget that won’t get in the way of accomplishing them.
“I’ve had bad experiences where I was required to do live tweeting/Instagram posts for events but my phone would keep hanging or the apps would always crash! So annoying! This, however, has never happened with the Lenovo Vibe X,” he says.
Perhaps it’s the fact that he admits to not being able to survive without a gadget—and especially so, when each aspect of his lifestyle seems to be accompanied by at least one gadget. “I don’t think anyone can! Technology has become a huge part of our lives whether we like it or not.”
All that he needs, when he needs it
One can say that the hodgepodge of David’s interests—be it culture, lifestyle, fashion, food, photography, or the many other things he’s dabbling as of late—matches the Lenovo Vibe X perfectly.
With its mix of high-quality specs that can compete with the latest and top smartphones in the tech scene, there’s hardly anything more than he wants from it.
You have the Android Jelly Bean 4.2 OS, which David compares to others that he has tried as the only one that has not caused him crashes or problems during shoots or events. He also appreciates the camera, which features a 13-megapixel rear camera that can take 1080p HD videos (“Perfect for my Instavids!” as David says) and a 5-megapixel front camera for the occasional selfie.
Truly, the Lenovo Vibe X also matches David’s style, as it is one of the premium smartphones that combines a sleek and slim finish with all the horsepower to juggle the operations within.
“The Lenovo Vibe X smartphone is perfect for my lifestyle since I’m always on the go. I’m always out for meetings, events, shoots, travels so I’m happy to have a gadget that caters to all my needs,” says David.
