UPDATE: Apple has just released iOS 8.0.2 to fix the problem affecting iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users. To update, go to Settings > General > Software Updates.
Shortly after the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple has rolled out a new iOS 8.0.1 software update that was supposed to iron out some minor kinks. Unfortunately the little update was reported to be creating more problems, affecting its cellular service and TouchID Fingerprint scanner. It seems that it only affects iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus that were updated to iOS 8.0.1.
Apple has responded that a fix is on its way in yet another update (iOS 8.0.2) but it would take a couple of days to release it. So for those who are affected, you can restore your iPhone 6 to proper working order by downgrading to iOS 8.0. Head after the break for the official instructions.
It’s pretty obvious that HTC is going to launch something other than a phone this coming October 8, how will its action cam look like? An eager beaver on Reddit scoured through recamera.com — the teaser site for the upcoming product launch — and found these images you see here.
Could this be the rumoured HTC action cam?
What we can is that it sure does look different from the many other action cams available in the market right now, almost like a periscope. But more than an action cam, is HTC creating a companion camera that’s always on, always capturing your activity making sure you don’t miss a moment? HTC seem to suggest that but we can’t say for sure. Anyway, we’ll find out in a couple of weeks.
If you are planning to get either the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus from a scalper, you might want to reconsider because the two devices has received SIRIM approval, which could be an indication that the device will be launched in Malaysia soon.
How soon, you ask? We don’t know, but what’s for almost certain is that it will be this year. Also, you can expect the device to be widely available via operators, the Apple Online Store and maybe even official retailers. But is the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus worth the wait? That’s a bendy debate.
For almost 2 years now, phone makers in China have been spearheading into the Malaysian market mercilessly. They brought in phones that were not only very affordable, but packed with high specs and features, without having to break your bank wide open. The rising company Meizu, one of many Chinese phone makers like Oppo, Xiaomi, Huawei and OnePlus, has recently released their Meizu MX4, and it’s something to be really impressed about.
Being leaked for quite some time already, the device was finally unveiled in Beijing, and now it’s making its way to Malaysia. Unofficially of course, thanks to our local grey importers.
The teaser of the Oppo N3 continues and this time they have shed some light n its smart phone body construction. Usually with smart phones you’ll get to choose your own preferred colour or back cover styles. Now it appears that Oppo would be giving a choice of 2 materials for its N3 metal frame.
As shown earlier, there will be a choice of black and white colours and now it is revealed that they are actually using 2 different materials. For the darker black colour, it uses Aluminium Lithium alloy which claims to be the lightest alloy material available. If durability is what you seek, there’s a stainless steel option that boasts being the toughest industrial steel.
As a result, we could be seeing 2 different dimension and weights for the Oppo N3. Which you go for? Strength or Weight?

Right after its global announcement, the latest BlackBerry Passport is officially launched in Malaysia today. The wide screen passport-sized flagship smart phone is priced at RM2,399 and it will be available starting 10th to 31st October exclusively with Celcom. Bundling with Celcom postpaid plan starts from RM638. It will be available across its network of dealers beginning 1st November.
To recap on the specs, the Passport gets a squarish 4.5″ 1440×1440 display that pushes a pixel density of 453 ppi (pixels per inch). Meanwhile at the bottom, its signature BlackBerry QWERTY keyboard gets skinnier with 3 rows of keys but it is much more usable as it doubles up as a touchpad.
The latest Lumia 830 and Lumia 735 are officially launched in Malaysia today. Announced during IFA 2014, the Lumia 830 is their affordable flagship that’s priced at RM1399. Meanwhile its Lumia 735 is their answer for the current selfie trend and it is priced at RM999. As an early bird promo, they are giving out Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium for the first 500 Lumia 830 buyers.
Both devices are available starting 3rd October and they run on the latest Lumia Denim Update (Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1). Also launched today is GSC’s official Windows Phone app which will be available next month.
HTC is organising an event on 8th October that’s dubbed as Double Exposure and now its first teaser it out promising something remarkable is coming. While the video doesn’t show the product, it gives some hints on what you could possibly do with it.
Early speculation suggests that HTC is making its own GoPro-like camera that’s both rugged and waterproof. From the video, it does look like a camera which can be used for all weather activities and it could also work as a portable selfie camera. Its website recamera.com is already up while its official twitter account had posted “Taking a picture has traditionally meant you’re busy behind the camera, framing the scene. But what have you been missing?”
From the looks of it, this could be a hybrid between an action cam like GoPro and an add-on camera accessory like Sony’s QX Lens series. The device is rumoured to feature a 16MP wide angle camera which connects wirelessly using Bluetooth and WiFi. We’ll find out this coming 8th October.
