HTC One E9 Plus Hands On

The HTC One E9+ has finally landed in Malaysia. The device packs the best of the company’s flagship, HTC One M9+, but into a plastic shell and with a much more affordable price tag of RM1,899. We spent a couple of hours with the device, and here’s our first impression.

Earlier today, Armaggeddon has unveiled three new mechanical keyboards: the tenkeyless MKA-5 Black Hawk and the full-sized MKA-11 Spectral Hawk and MKA-13 Chroma Hawk keyboards. We were told these boards will be affordable, and if it’s true, mechanical keyboard lovers will want to give these a consideration.

For what it’s worth, I had a quick hands on session with these three keyboards, and I’m rather impressed.

When it comes to shopping for a budget-friendly laptop, sacrifices have to be made. One would think an affordable laptop will be heavy, slow, and poorly designed. These attributes, however, do not apply to the Lenovo U41. Starting from RM1,871, this could very possibly be the best value for money laptop you can get today.

“Mi 4 International”. That was the tagline Xiaomi chose for its latest smartphone, the Mi 4i. The first Xiaomi smartphone developed from the ground up for the international market, the Mi 4i has also got a lot riding on it – is this the smartphone that Xiaomi wants the world to associate it with?

[UPDATE] Hands On: OPPO R7 Lite – The Most Affordable Model In R7 Series

by Chief Chapree · 4 weeks ago · 4 Comments · 1.8k views

OPPO R7 Lite Hands On 01

[UPDATE (945PM)]: We have finally obtained OPPO Malaysia’s side of the story. Learn more here.

[UPDATE (6:00PM)]: Confirmed – the unit that we tried last night was indeed a R7 which will not be released in Malaysia, not a R7 Lite. Check out our subsequent article for further information.

[UPDATE (1:29AM)]: We have found an abnormality in the unit that we used for this hands on article. Read further to know more.

When the new OPPO R7 Series was first unveiled in Beijing in May, this particular model was somehow not revealed to the world alongside R7 and R7 Plus. Instead, the existence of R7 Lite was only officially announced during the R7 launch in Indonesia later that month but even then, OPPO didn’t released any details regarding the new smartphone.

Things were slightly different when it comes to the R7 Series launch in Malaysia few hours ago though as the R7 Lite is actually here, in flesh. Then again, Malaysia is one of the selected markets where OPPO is going to make the device available for consumers. Anyway, guess we just got first dibs on the new device then.

Hands On: Oppo R7 Plus – a Premium Phablet with a Questionable Price Tag

by Andrew Cheng · 4 weeks ago · 10 Comments · 1.5k views

oppo-r7-plus-hands-on-1

Oppo Malaysia has launched two of its brand new smartphones in Malaysia just today: the 6-inch Oppo R7 Plus and its smaller variant, the 5-inch Oppo R7 Lite. I managed to get my hands on with the former device, and I asked myself this question throughout the hands on: is there a reason why it costs so much? RM1,998 for a mid-range device will surely raise a few eyebrows among consumers.

They came in the form of two upcoming graphics cards: the Radeon R9 Nano and a yet to be named graphics card that features dual Fiji GPUs.

PowerColor Radeon R9 Fury X Eyes On 12

It was only few weeks ago at E3 2015 that AMD has finally taken the drape off its latest pride and joy, a brand new GPU chip codenamed Fiji which is the foundation of several graphics card including the Radeon R9 Fury X. As opposed to the company’s Radeon R9 and R7 300 Series graphics cards which is already widely available in our market, it is quite hard to source an R9 Fury X in Malaysia at the moment but that didn’t stop AMD from having an official Malaysian launch event for it earlier this week anyway.

Lightning Review: Anker Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Mouse

anker-wireless-vertical-ergonomic-mouse-2

These days, more and more desk-bound jobs require employees to be working in front of computers in excess of eight hours a day. As a result, injuries related to long-term usage of keyboard and in particular mice have cropped up dramatically over the years. Besides spending less time using a computer (which may not be possible for some), the only other option would be to find accessories that are designed to reduce fatigue-related injuries. One such product is the Anker Wireless Vertical Ergonomic Mouse.

Not many people can afford such an extravagant television like Samsung’s new SUHD TV lineup, but oh boy, it’s definitely a looker. We had the opportunity to get up close and personal with the flagship JS9500 model, and we can say one thing: for anyone that can afford such luxury, this is one model to keep your eye on (sometimes literally).

vivo-x5-pro-hands-on-11

vivo has just launched the X5 Pro in Malaysia today. Equipped with a Snapdragon 615 and a premium metal construction, it is retailing for RM1,599, which is pretty high for a mid-range device. That being said, during my hands on with it, there are certain aspects of the X5 Pro that warrant the asking price.
