ASUS has always been banging on low light camera performance with its Pixel Master technology. The first generation Zenfone had blown us away with its Low Light mode and the new Zenfone 2 is expected to do better with its bold claim of being able to see what others can’t see.

To find out if it is better, we set up a extreme low light scene and compared the Zenfone 2 with other new devices including the Galaxy S6, HTC One M9+ and the new Mi 4i. You’ll be amazed with the results.

Posted:  May 22, 2015   By:    No comments   


Digi has just announced that it will be extending its 4G LTE coverage for more areas in the Klang Valley to provide more people with faster internet speeds and it’s now available for prepaid too.

With Digi’s existing 3G coverage, the extended LTE services are part of the company’s plan to bring better broadband access to 80% of the populated areas in Greater KL with a target of 2Mbps minimum speed. Digi says that their customers cn expect better indoor and outdoor internet experience as well as reduction of drop call rates. On top of that, Digi will be deploying more sites that runs on both 1800MHz and 2600MHz bands in the next few quarters. So this means you could enjoy faster speeds on Digi if you’re using a smart phone that supports only 1800MHz LTE bands.

At the moment, Digi’s 4G LTE coverage covers 79% of Klang Valley’s population and 33% of the population nationwide. The areas that are currently covered by Digi’s 4G LTE services include the Klang Valley, Penang, Kuantan, Johor Bahru, Kota Kinabalu, Tawau, Labuan, Kuching, Miri, Bintulu, Kampar, Langkawi and Port Dickson.

Posted:  May 21, 2015   By:    2 comments   


The highly raved OnePlus One is even more affordable as Maxis has reduced its bundled pricing to as low as RM599 on contract. When it was first introduced, the OnePlus One with 64GB storage was offered at RM859 and that’s with a 24 months contract of MaxisOne Plan with an extra 1GB data subscription costing RM158/month in total.
