When you’re always travelling, it can be difficult to stay online. It’s even worse when you’re travelling in a group – roaming charges will kill you financially. So what are your options?

Thankfully, over the past few years many companies began introducing highly useful MiFi devices. Short for Mobile WiFi, these devices lets you share the data connection from one device by acting as a mobile WiFi router – making it a useful travel companion for those who cannot stay offline.

Review: Huawei Honor 6 – The Smartphone To Beat

by Syefri Zulkefli · 2 weeks ago · 9 Comments · 7.2k views

Huawei Honor 6 01

2014 is such an interesting year for Honor as the sub-brand of Huawei managed to make quite an impact in Malaysia even though it only released three devices into our market so far this year.

Honor’s first success in 2014 came in the form of the Honor 3C that was released in Malaysia back in April. It received  great response from local consumers, mainly thanks to its highly effective combination of high performance hardware at an affordable price point.

Fast forward to last month, Honor Malaysia released yet another smartphone into the market that was crafted under the same formula but positioned as the flagship model of the Honor family. That device is the Honor 6 which is the focus of this review.

Review: Aorus X7 V2 Gaming Laptop

by Farhan · 2 weeks ago · 5 Comments · 3.3k views

aorus-x7v2-18

As far as gaming laptops go, the Aorus X7 v2 wanders dangerously close to overkill territory. It packs a pair of NVIDIA GeForce GTX860M in an SLI configuration, which isn’t too common on laptops of any type. Less common still is the X7 v2′s design: matte black all over and seriously mean-looking vents around the chassis, and a rear that looks like a luxury sports car. Clearly, this gaming laptop means business. But does it walk the talk?

Oppo R5 Hands On 20

It is the thinnest smartphone in the world,says Oppo. That was indeed a bold claim by the smartphone manufacturer from China but not that it come without any merit. With a thickness of only 4.85mm, the Oppo R5 is really thin but of course, there are more to Oppo R5 rather than being such a thin device.

Hands On: Oppo N3

Oppo N3 Hands On 05

When Oppo N1 was first announced to the world last year, its rotating camera was pretty much the talk of the town. The idea of having such camera is quite interesting since it allows users to utilize the same high resolution 13-megapixels camera for both rear shots and front-facing selfies.

Fast forward to last week, the Chinese manufacturer has upped the ante by revealing the successor to Oppo N1 in the form of Oppo N3. Despite featuring a smaller 5.5-inch full HD IPS display (the N1 has 5.9-inch full HD IPS display), the N3 in general features plenty of improvements over its predecessor.

Review: Samsung Galaxy Note 4 – King of Phablets

by Pang Tun Yau · 3 weeks ago · 10 Comments · 5.7k views

samsung-galaxy-note-4-review-2

There used to be a time when the stylus was a dead-in-the-water tech invention, one which was quickly replaced by touchscreens that became the norm to this day. Three years ago, Samsung defied that idea with the S Pen on the first-generation Galaxy Note – and it proved so popular the company never looked back.

The Galaxy Note 4 is the South Korean giants’ latest iteration of what has become Samsung’s golden child in its smartphone roster. This time around, though, there’s a new pretender hoping to take some valuable market share off the Note 4 – and the competition does not come any bigger than the Apple iPhone 6 Plus. Does the Note still hold the edge?

A Quick Look At The NVIDIA Shield Tablet

by Farhan · 4 weeks ago · 1 Comment · 2k views

NVIDIA Shield

The original NVIDIA Shield was an ambitious step by the company into the handheld console market. It had originally promised remote streaming of PC games, but fell slightly short when the limitations of the feature were made known. This second attempt is something completely different. The NVIDIA Shield Tablet makes people wonder just where this whole thing is going, and if tablets really are the future of mobile gaming. We managed to sit down with the device for a few minutes to find out.

Review: Sony Xperia Z3 – The Best Android Smartphone of 2014?

by Pang Tun Yau · 1 month ago · 6 Comments · 7k views

sony-xperia-z3-10

When Sony introduced the original Xperia Z smartphone to the world, it also introduced a manufacturing and philosophical shift in its flagship smartphone strategy: to have a six-month cycle for its Z series of flagship Android smartphones. As a result, since the Xperia Z debuted at CES 2013, we’ve now got four Z-series smartphones in under two years: the Z, Z1, Z2 and now the Xperia Z3.

The company’s faced some pretty harsh criticism over this move, as many consumers feel that they are being short-changed for buying a premium smartphone that’s only going to be a flagship for six months. But since using both the Xperia Z2 and the Z3 almost back-to-back, I’m beginning to see some semblance of logic in Sony’s apparent madness.
