UPDATE: The Mi 5,000mAh Power Bank goes on sale on 13th February at the Mi Store.
The China based company revealed their 5,000mAh super slim power bank late last year and now we finally have it for the Malaysian market, as we predicted. It will be priced at just RM 34, which is the same as it’s 5,200mAh predecessor which it is replacing. The prices still reflect an increase in the pricing of the Mi power banks as it’s predecessor was originally priced at RM 25 and subsequently hiked up to RM 34.
The super slim power bank is already available on their site and it should go on sale in their upcoming flash sale. A couple of hands-on photos of the new power bank after the break.
The latest Android Lollipop update is making its way to the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. It is rolling out now for Exynos variants in Poland and while there’s no schedule yet, we expect our similar Malaysian units (SM-N910C) to receive it soon. According to Sammobile, the update carries the Android version 5.0.1, which is slightly newer than the one that was pushed to Galaxy S5 users recently.
The software update is reported to include a refreshed appearance and it gets faster performance and improved battery life as well. According to them, it isn’t available for Kies and it is being rolled out as an OTA (over the air) update. You can check out the video walkthrough of Android 5.0 Lollipop for the Galaxy Note 4 after the break.
Yesterday, we got a peek at AnTuTu benchmarks for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, revealing a rather impressive score, considering they decided not to use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor to power the device.
Now, Samsung has tested it out using the GeekBench benchmarking tool and unsurprisingly the device is showing the same blistering fast performance. According to GeekBench the Galaxy S6 Edge which has a Exynos 7420 processor under the hood, scored a good 1,492 point in the single-core test and 5,077 in the mulit-core test.
That even beats the iPad Air 2‘s triple core and 2GB setup, as well as being more powerful than the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 which scored a maximum of 1,054 and 3,374 points in the single and multi-core tests. Qualcomm could very well be in trouble since Samsung’s Exynos chip is leaving the Snapdragon 810 in the dust.
UPDATE: Xiaomi’s slim 5,000mAh Power Bank is coming to Malaysia at RM34.
Introduced last November with it’s mammoth sized sibling the Mi 16,000mAh Power Bank, the 5,000mAh version is only 9.9mm thick and will be replacing the current 5,200mAh model and is just a hair heavier than that too, weighted at just 1 gram extra than it’s predecessor.

If you’ve been hankering for some extra space on your Google Drive, you’re in luck.
Google is giving out a free and permanant 2GB bump to your max storage in return for doing a Security Checkup for your Drive. This is in regards to Safer Internet Day and you’ll only get the extra storage if you complete the checkup by the 17th of February. If you’ve been repeatedly maxing out your cloud storage, we recommend you grab it while you can.
While Drive files are already encrypted and protected, the goal of this is to ensure that you’re making the most out of it. In a nutshell what the checkup does is it lets you review recent sign-in activity, confirms the apps and devices that access account information as well as ensures your account recovery information is current in the event of a hacking or illegal access.
When Xiaomi announced its new entry-level Redmi 2, many are seeing it as a minor update as it comes with a similar 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. With the rise of competing low-cost offering from Honor and Meizu, Xiaomi has released a new enhanced version that comes with 2GB of RAM and a generous serving of 16GB of storage.
The rest of the specs remains unchanged with a 4.7″ HD 720p display and it runs on a newer 64-bit 1.2GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 410 processor that supports 4G LTE. It also gets an 8MP main + 2MP front camera along with a slightly bumped up 2,200mAh capacity battery.
Sony has just announced its new Xperia E4 smart phone, a new entry-level device which gets a larger 5.0″ display and it runs on a MediaTek processor. Initially speculated for MWC 2015 release, Sony interestingly has decided to announce it weeks ahead of the international mobile event.
At first glance, the Xperia E4 looks the replacement of the Xperia E3 and overall it still retains Sony’s Omni-Balance design throughout. The front display is upsized from the 4.5″ FWVGA (854×480) display on the Xperia E3 to a better 5.0″ qHD (960×540) screen.
However under the hood, Sony opts for a more cost effective Quad-Core 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6582 processor, that’s similar to the one that’s powering the Honor 3C and Honor 3C Lite. It is mated to 1GB of RAM and has 8GB of on-board storage that can expand further to another 32GB with microSD.
UPDATE: All remaining Mi Pad stocks have sold out.
The Xiaomi Mi Pad went on sale yesterday and it was sold out in just over a minute. If you failed to get this RM799 Android tablet, it appears that it is still available at time of writing. Despite being “sold out”, this could be released stock from those who have checked out but didn’t complete their payment.
If you’re interested, you better act fast before the remaining units are sold out. Orders can be made directly from the Mi Pad product page. On top of that, they are also giving discounted power bank bundles where the 10,400mAh unit can be included for an extra RM36, or the 5,200mAh version at RM28 during check out. The Mi Pad is only available in white and it comes with 16GB of storage that’s expandable with microSD.
