Samsung Gear S2 Review: The Exemplary Smartwatch

by Andrew Cheng · 5 days ago · 4 Comments · 4.3k views


Samsung hasn’t had much success in the smartwatch market, but it wasn’t for lack of trying. Its first ever iteration of the Galaxy Gear was groundbreaking (though eventually forgettable), and last year’s Gear S wasn’t that well-received, which could be attributed to its imposing size. The Gear S2, however, changes everything. Not only is it the Korean company’s first-ever circular smartwatch, it can also be paired with a non-Samsung device – something that was never possible with any of its other smartwatches.

While it’s clear that Samsung went back to the drawing board with the Gear S2, is it any good? Well, the answer is anything but simple, although one thing is certain: it’s the smartwatch to beat.

Samsung Gear S2 Hands On: An Interesting Alternative to Android Wear

by Andrew Cheng · 3 weeks ago · 1 Comment · 4.3k views


The Samsung Gear S2 is a far cry from its predecessor, the Gear S. It is sleeker, smaller, and most of all, doesn’t look like a small computer on your wrist. In fact, it looks every bit like a regular wristwatch, which is a step in the right direction if smartwatches were to be widely adopted. After spending some time with the Gear S2, I can say that it’s one promising wearable.

by Andrew Cheng · 3 weeks ago · 27 Comments · 14.4k views


Value for money. If there’s anything that Xiaomi is associated with, it would be that. While the rapidly growing startup has always released Android devices that offer plenty of value for money, the Redmi Note 2 brings new meaning to that term. That being said, just how good can a RM649 smartphone be?

As it turned out, very.

Lightning Review: Kingston HyperX Cloud Core Gaming Headset

by Andrew Cheng · 1 month ago · 5 Comments · 1.2k views


Gaming headsets. The first thing that comes to mind when someone mentions “gaming headset” is usually too much emphasis on bass and nothing else. The Kingston HyperX Cloud Core, on the other hand, is different. It actually sounds decent with good build quality to boot.

On top of that, this is by far the most comfortable headset I have ever used. For only RM269 (it can even be cheaper if you know where to look), this is one amazing value for money gaming headset.

Lightning Review: Acer XR341CK Curved Monitor – More Than Worth The Price

by Farhan · 1 month ago · 10 Comments · 5.5k views

Acer XR341CK004

Given its specs list and looks, one would be surprised to find that Acer’s XR341CK curved monitor isn’t actually classified as a gaming monitor. Instead, Acer is marketing the monitor as a premium mainstream unit – one that tries to combine the high resolution, super wide and a curved panel into a single display. The question is whether is is capable of doing it all, and perhaps a little more.
