Samsung has announced yet another tablet at its press briefing at IFA 2014. The ruggedized Samsung Galaxy Tab Active is designed for productivity, yet is equipped with features that allow it to be taken into places that would be too unfriendly for regular tablets. It also has enterprise users in mind, which looks like it is meant for the travelling businessman.
Now that the new flagship smartphones from Samsung and Sony have been announced – Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and Sony Xperia Z3, how do they stack up against existing flagship smartphones in the market? We take their specs and compare it with some of the hottest devices right now including the Xiaomi Mi 4, OnePlus One, Oppo Find 7, HTC One (M8), LG G 3 and more, so hit the break to check the pretty large table out.
The highly anticipated massively multiplayer first person shooter Destiny will be arriving in Malaysia on 9 September. As part of an early bird promotion, Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong is providing players with the Vanguard DLC if they choose the purchase the game as a digital download. The offer lasts from the moment the game is made available on PSN until 23 September.
Microsoft has revealed more details about the next big update that follows the Cyan refresh. Lumia Denim will provide updates to how Cortana works, while also bringing improvements to the camera app. It will be first arriving on the current line of flagship phones in the Lumia 930, Lumia 1520, and Lumia Icon. The newly announced Lumia 830 will also be shipping with the update.
Microsoft is trying very hard to appeal to the younger generation, and that is very evident from the introduction of the Lumia 730 and 735. Billed as the ‘selfie phone’, the entire introduction centered on the new device’s capabilities for taking selfies; all thanks to a 5MP front facing camera with the widest angle lens available.
Microsoft has just unveiled the Lumia 830, and already the company is calling it the world’s most affordable flagship smartphone. At 330 Euro, it certainly looks to live up to this title, although details about the specifications are very light. It will, however, be very hard to beat at that price point.
If high-end Android smartphones is not your cup of tea, then meet the new HTC Desire 820, a mid-range octa-core smartphone from the Taiwanese that has 64-bit support. This device is the one that was teased by HTC just last week and was just announced hours ago at the on-going IFA 2014.
It started off with the iPhone 5S but it looks like Maxis is slowly expanding its trade-in program to offer you the ability to buy more and more with a trade-in offer. You can now trade in your iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, S4, Xperia Z1, and more, to purchase the new HTC One (M8) and yes, you will still get to enjoy a further discount of RM400 with the on-going Merdeka promotion.
Sony will allow Xperia Z3 users to stream gameplay from their PlayStation 4 right to the mobile device. Which is a method of integrating the second screen concept into gaming in a way that actually makes sense. Users will still have to be on the same WiFi network as their PS4, but it does prevent people from fighting over the TV.
