When honor launched the honor 7 in London, it didn’t come as a surprise; but no one expected the company to reveal that the honor Zero smartwatch will be making its way to Europe in the fourth quarter of 2015. The fact that consumers can decide what it will be called is even more surprising, seeing how the winner will get the opportunity to try out honor products for the next five years.
While this is very exciting news for fans of honor and smartwatches in general, how does the honor Zero fare as a smartwatch?
Honor has just launched its new smartphone, the Honor 7, in London. As the company’s latest flagship device, almost every single aspect of the Honor 7 has been improved over its predecessor, the Honor 6. In some ways, it even surpasses the Honor 6 Plus. After spending some time with it, I can safely say the Honor 7 is the company’s best offering yet.
honor has officially launched the honor 7 for the European market in London, United Kingdom. First unveiled a couple of months ago, this is one of the biggest launch event for the device outside of China. Even more importantly (for us Malaysians, that is), we have been told that the honor 7 is set to arrive in Malaysia as early as September.
Touted as the first smartphone in the world to feature Dolby Atmos technology, the Lenovo A7000 is quite a unique proposition for a smartphone. Frankly, I was quite perplexed on how Dolby managed to transfer the tech into a smartphone given how elaborate a typical Atmos setup is in an actual cinema hall. Furthermore, Dolby stated that the Atmos technology for mobile devices does not require any specialized headphones – it will work regardless of whether you use an “el cheapo” or high end pair of headphones.This just made me more curious about the level of quality that Atmos for mobile is able to deliver on the A7000.
Of course, let’s not forget the fact that A7000 is first and foremost a smartphone. So, Dolby Atmos is not the only reason that determines the overall value of the A7000. With that, let’s first take a look at A7000’s general specifications before we go further.
In conjunction with this year’s Merdeka Day and the subsequent Malaysia Day in September, the Ministry of Communication and Multimedia (KKMM) as well as the Multimedia Development Corporation (MDEC) have recently launched a set of app and game called iMalaysia. Made possible by local developers that are part of MDEC’s Integrated Content Development Programme, both apps are now readily available for Android and iOS.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 5 has taken quite a bit of flak for a simple flaw with its S Pen. It turns out that the company is well aware of any potential problems with the device, and has responded to this particular issue. Of course, the response isn’t really helpful to people who might have already broken their brand new phablets.
