Still remember how Xiaomi managed to sell off its first batch of Xiaomi Redmi in Singapore within 8 minutes? Well, the smartphone manufacturer from China has managed to do it once again…and this time, the company managed to do it even faster.
I think LG has made it to the top of my list of weirdest ad ever made with its latest G Flex ad that shows of how the company’s curved smartphone is “the most human phone ever”. Thanks to a curved design that is arched from top to bottom, the G Flex boasts the most natural usage when talking on the phone, but it’s so natural, LG decided to show it off with this new ad.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) has reportedly begun manufacturing the next-generation processor for Apple’s next iPhone.

Now that DiGi has introduced brand new DG SmartPlan postpaid plans that are all equipped with 4G LTE connectivity (finally), it looks like you will be able to sign up for a device bundle for those plans as well. The telco has recently updated its device bundle page, offering devices from Samsung, Sony, Motorola and more that are tied to the new DG SmartPlan 50/78/108/148 postpaid plans.
The days leading up to MWC 2014 were dominated by news of both Oppo and Xiaomi expanding their presence in the region. It was, largely, well received, as most of our readers enjoying the potential for growing smartphone options. The situation bears another look now that MWC is past. So are both Oppo and Xiaomi still viable options now that we know what is to come in the next 6 months?
Not just sticking to the top of the range flagship smartphone segment, Sony have announced the Xperia T2 Ultra; a phablet which is focused on emerging markets, packed to the brim with specs for entertainment on the go. Sporting a 6-inch 720 x 1280 TRILUMINOS display that extends to within 2.5mm of the phone’s edges, the T2 Ultra makes the most of available space and makes it a rather svelte device considering its size.
Just how similar are the Xperia Z1 Compact and the Xperia Z1? We are in Jakarta where Sony have just announced the new range of Xperia devices slated for launch next month and we decided to put them side-by-side to find out how they stack up against each other. Here’s our post on the Z1 Compact from earlier today.
At Sony’s regional event to showcase its latest devices from MWC 2014, the company has also shared some information about the devices’ availability in Malaysia. Yup, the Xperia Z2, Xperia Z2 Tablet, Xperia M2, Xperia T2 Ultra, Sony Smartwear and also the Xperia Z1 Compact will all be coming to Malaysia – and they’re all coming next month!
After making its debut at CES 2014 and teasing the “pre registration” from Sony Malaysia, at an event in Jakarta, Sony have finally announced the arrival of the Z1 Compact. The original Z1 was one of the Lowyat.NET team’s favourite phones of 2013 and with the Z1 Compact coming in and trimming the size down while keeping it feature packed, the Z1 Compact may be one of our favourites from 2014.
The interface might looked different from your usual Android devices but make no mistake: Nokia X is indeed an Android device although the OS is based on Android Open Source Project codes and doesn’t have the native access to Google services. Hence, users are able to install Android apps into the device rather easily.
After being rumoured for quite some time, the new Nokia X was finally unveiled at the recent Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona last week. Somehow, Nokia decided not to wait for long to bring the device over to Malaysia and has officially launched it for our market just moments ago.
Even though we have spent some time with Nokia X (as well as its bigger brother, the Nokia XL) at MWC, we decided to have another brief but closer walk-through with the device once again. Don’t to forget to check our subsequent post where we’ll show you how to install Android apps into Nokia X.
Barely a week after the device made its first official public appearance at the Mobile World Congress 2014 in Barcelona, Nokia X is now in Malaysia. Just moments ago, Nokia Malaysia has officially launched the new device in our shores and users will be able to see it in stores within this week itself.
Using an iPhone 5S? Guess what? It looks like your phone is so powerful that it might be able to track your every single movement up to four days after the battery has died; that was exactly what happened to a Reddit user, Glarznak. Glarznak was travelling abroad when his iPhone 5s’ battery died and his charger cable broke. He decided not to spend that money to get a new cable so he just chuck the dead phone into his bag and continued with his journey. When he got back and checked one of his tracking apps, he realized that it recorded all of his movements for 4 days after his phone’s battery went out.
