More information about Google’s Project Ara smartphone has surfaced.

Apple has just announced that it will be launching the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in China on 17 October 2014. Online preorders will start on 10 October and in-store prorders will begin on 14 October. Because the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus supports practically all LTE networks out there, it will be compatible with the TD-LTE and FDD-LTE networks in the country offered by China Mobile, China Telecom and China Unicom.
Apple making a large-screen smartphone? You must be joking.
But this isn’t Steve Jobs’ Apple any more. This is Tim Cook’s Apple, a company that’s more open to feedback from its users, instead of one that makes you believe its one phone is the best phone you’ll ever get…until the next year, when the new iPhone is the best phone you’ll ever get.
Now, there’s a choice. Last year there were the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s; it wasn’t a difficult decision the last time. For 2014, there’s the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, a huge 5.5-inch phablet catered for those yearning for a big iOS-running smartphone that can do everything.
It can hardly be denied that the Apple’s next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 6, is one of the year’s most anticipated devices. With rumours about the device circulating for months before the actual release just a few weeks back, one can tell that this is perhaps also the most important iPhone ever made.
But when it was eventually announced, it was safe to say many were let down in more ways than one. I know I was. But that just made me curious, and I felt the need to judge it for myself. Thankfully, I stumbled upon an Apple store selling the new iPhones.
Love the HTC One (M8) and everything it has got to offer including the cool dual cameras, and the sleek and sexy aluminum build, but hate how the camera has only a 4MP sensor? No worries, it has been rumored that the Taiwanese company is working on a 13MP version of the HTC One (M8) called the HTC One (M8) Eye, and it looks like it will be launched as early as next month.
We’ve seen several leaks with regards to the upcoming Oppo N3 and here’s one that finally touches on the specs. According to the latest leaks, the Oppo N3 that is scheduled to be launched next month, looks very similar to the existing Oppo N1, and will be a pretty powerful device as well with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM on board.
So we’ve seen how easy it is to bend an iPhone 6 Plus with one’s bare hands, but just how fragile is the phone? Consumer Reports recently performed a more scientific test with proper lab equipment, the result? The iPhone 6 Plus is tougher than you thought, and is actually even tougher than its competitor.
Ever since OnePlus One was revealed to the world earlier this year, it has received tremendous amount of attention from consumers throughout the world mainly due to its combination of premium specifications and low price tag. OnePlus even go as far as calling the device as the “2014 flagship killer“.
Even though OnePlus One is not officially available in Malaysia just yet, quite a number of users have already obtained the smartphone from oversea judging from the device’s thread in our forums but soon, you don’t have to go through extra steps in order to get your hands on the smartphone.
Huawei Malaysia today has announced that its latest Honor family member, the Honor 6 will be released in Malaysia on 16 October. The device which was initially announced to the world three months ago in China will carry a price tag of RM 999 and is made available exclusive online through the company’s online store as well as an e-commerce partner.
Pre-order will be opened at both stores starting from this coming Monday, 29 September till 14 October. The Honor 6 is the first device to be released under a stand-alone Honor branding, which has now been spawned as an individual sub-brand by Huawei.
The Sony Xperia C3 is now available in Malaysia for a retail price of RM999 but if you do not wish to pay full price for this selfie smartphone from Sony, you can get it from as low as RM366 from U Mobile. If you qualify, U Mobile will even waive the upfront payment so you’ll only need to pay RM366 and you can walk away with the device.
