HTC J Butterfly Refreshed For Japan Market

by Dee-Ker · 20 hours ago · 1 Comment · 742 views


Japanese carrier KDDI has announced a refreshed HTC J Butterfly, a colourful, slightly beefed-up version of the international HTC One M8.

Unlike the HTC One M8, the J Butterfly is encased in a waterproof body. It is fairly common in Japan to have their smartphones waterproof, however, allowing the J Butterfly to be submerge in water means that the quality of the Boomsound speakers that HTC is known for had to be sacrificed. Fortunately, HTC makes it up to users by bundling in a pair of high-quality JBL in-ear headphones.

[LYTV] Gaming First Impressions: Magic: The Gathering

by Farhan · 1 day ago · No Comments · 256 views

With the launch of the latest Core product from Magic: the Gathering, we stopped by our nearest friendly local game shop (FLGS) to find out what has been keeping people coming back to the game for over 20 years. 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. There is a profound sense of community and camaraderie that among the players.

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

by Pang Tun Yau · 2 days ago · 6 Comments · 2.3k views


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?
