honor Malaysia has just launched the much anticipated honor 5X on our shores. Although it is the successor to the honor 4X, the 5X is a markedly different device with a much more premium metal construction; the 4X only had a plastic body. While honor Malaysia has not revealed the price and availability of this device yet, our initial impression of the honor 5X is quite favourable.
Selfies have now become an unavoidable part of our lives, and there are bound to be smartphones that cater to this specific demand. Last week, Oppo introduced the Oppo F1, which is a device released under the newly-announced ‘F’ series. But with Oppo’s asking price of RM1,198 for the Oppo F1, what else does it offer other than a beefed up front camera?
Even though we managed to check out the ZenFone Zoom (behind a barricade though) at Mobile World Congress last year, the smartphone has been in development for so long that I seriously believe that it will not see the light of the day. As it turned out, I was wrong as ASUS finally released the device into the market starting in Taiwan last month and followed by Malaysia towards the end of January 2016.
Logitech is no stranger in the peripheral business, especially when it comes to gaming mice. In the mechanical keyboard world, however, the company isn’t as well-known. Since the company’s introduction of Logitech G, it is starting to change that.
The Logitech G310 Atlas Dawn, a tenkeyless mechanical keyboard designed with gamers in mind is the latest from the company. What differentiates this mechanical keyboard from its competition is one thing: the choice of switch. Instead of the more conventional Cherry MX switches, Logitech decided to equip the G310 with its own Romer-G ones. Let’s find out just how different these switches are and how they affect the overall usability of the G310.
The BlackBerry Priv is one of the most unique (and perhaps unusual) smartphones released this year, and is now available for pre-order in Malaysia. At RM3.559, this is one of the most expensive smartphones around. Does it warrant the high asking price? Depending on who you ask, it’s a tough question to answer.
Last week, HP unveiled its new range of Windows laptops, powered by Windows 10 and the latest sixth-generation Skylake processors from Intel. While the headline-grabbing entry is the sexy, Surface-like Spectre x2 tablet, HP also showcased the Star Wars Special Edition Notebook. While it’s not exactly a powerful gaming laptop, it is a surprisingly well-designed notebook that’s sure to interest Star Wars fans.
Just yesterday, HP has officially brought in the Spectre x2 Windows tablet to Malaysia. Retailing at RM3,999, it is by no means an affordable machine. That being said, it’s an interesting alternative to the base model Microsoft Surface Pro 4, which goes for the same price. Here’s our initial impression of the Spectre x2.
Lenovo has just launched the Yoga 900 – a convertible laptop that runs on Intel’s latest 6th generation Skylake processor. Being a product under the Yoga lineup, this laptop can be used in four different modes: laptop, stand, tablet, and tent. Yes, the Yoga 900 is fast and light, but what else does it have to offer?
Sony’s latest Xperia Z5 series of flagship smartphones are officially available in Malaysia. While companies like Samsung and Apple released two separate flagships with different screen sizes, Sony went one step further by introducing three different models in the new Xperia Z5 lineup – the Xperia Z5, Xperia Z5 Compact, and the Xperia Z5 Premium.
Officially unveiled to the world just last month, the MSI GS40 Phantom is now available in Malaysia. With a retail price of RM8,999, this is not an affordable gaming laptop; but what do you get for that kind of money? Well, a few things, which may or may not matter to you as a gamer.
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.
