This week, we lament the loss of what should have been the best smartphone released this year: the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Pang reveals his month-long experience using the Note 7, before Farhan and Andrew join in with their thoughts on the matter.

Finally, some of us went out to visit the midnight launches for the iPhone 7 in Malaysia. In an age where e-commerce is now mainstream with next-day deliveries common in many locations, is there still a place for midnight launches? Or is there just something about the iPhone that justifies the excitement?
All these and more in Episode 5 of The Tech Tarik Show!
