What we found was that while the game has a highly competitive tournament scene, it isn’t just all about a bunch of geeks playing with funny cards.

This is the HTC One (E8), the One M8′s Plastic Twin

by Pang Tun Yau · 18 hours ago · 5 Comments · 1.5k views

htc-one-e8-1

HTC’s excellent One (M8) remains one of my favourite smartphones of this year. It managed to get a lot of things right, from the beautifully-designed chassis, very light software skin and surprisingly good battery life, but stumbled a little at the final hurdle: the camera. Many bemoaned the fact that HTC retained the 4MP UltraPixel sensor, while adding the depth sensor for some genuinely cool effects. Don’t get me wrong, it is a much-improved camera compared to last year’s HTC One, but I personally wished it captured images at higher resolutions.

It is a criticism HTC has heard many times, and perhaps it is for that same reason the company has come out with the One (E8): a similarly-designed smartphone featuring a polycarbonate shell and a large 13MP rear camera sensor. It is also priced significantly cheaper too: the One (E8) is rumoured to be priced at RM1,699 when it is launched later this year. So how’s the One (E8) like?

Samsung-Logo_31

For the first time in three years, Samsung Electronics has seen a drop in quarterly profits. Now, these figures are not as dramatic as they sound, since the company still made billions in net profit, but one of the contributing factors behind Samsung’s Q2 drop in profits were due to the traditionally strong Samsung Mobile division.
