2014 was a watershed year for smartphones. With the emergence of the Chinese smartphone makers, virtually every major smartphone company was caught off-guard. Consumers now had access to better made smartphones at significantly lower prices; who would want to pay double the amount for virtually the same phone?

In the midst of all this, another smartphone maker came virtually out of nowhere. Calling themselves OnePlus, the company released the OnePlus One or what it called the “2014 Flagship Killer”, boasting premium hardware for about half the price of, say, the Samsung Galaxy S5 or the HTC One M8. Now that we’re into 2015, is this still one of the best value-for-money smartphones you can buy?

Recently, Maxis approached us with a very interesting proposition. Alongside a few other publications, the local telco wanted us to really test out its “no bill shocks” promise for its customers, which is a statement made as part of its 2015 “Unmatched Customer Experience” programme. We were told we could do virtually anything we wanted to see if we could break the company’s many fail-safe measures to ensure the consumer does not end up with, well, a bill shock at the end of the month.

How could we even say no to that?

“Dude, is that the new S6 edge?”

It was like a scene right out of a TV commercial. But there I was, in my neighbourhood mamak coffee shop with some friends when I took the Galaxy S6 edge out of my pocket when my non-tech savvy friend asked that very question. I’ve had my fair share of curious glances and questions with the devices I use, but this, frankly, was the first with a Samsung.

This on its own is already a big win for Samsung, but read on.
