It’s no secret that I’m not a big fan of Sony’s mid-range handsets. It didn’t matter if it was the budget mid-range option or their premium mid-range handset, they were never attractive from a price-to-performance perspective. But to be fair, this problem wasn’t unique to Sony’s mid-range devices because their flagships were grossly overpriced too.
That is, until they launched the Xperia XZ1. Sony’s newest 2017 flagship finally showed us that hey, maybe they’re listening after all because with that handset, the company went from making god-awful value smartphones to just making debatably bad value smartphones.

Almost every smartphone maker is releasing a smartphone with a “Full View” or 18:9 display. This makes it possible to fit a larger screen without increasing the width of the phone excessively.
When Xiaomi announced the Redmi 5, it is probably the most affordable 18:9 smartphone you can buy with price starting from 799 CNY (about RM492) for the base model. If you’re looking for an alternative, Meizu has just announced the M6s and it is powered by Samsung’s new mid-range Exynos processor.
It looks like DJI‘s Osmo Mobile 2 will be officially coming to Malaysia pretty soon. This follow-up to the awesome original Osmo Mobile had one big trick up its sleeve that many of us didn’t see coming: It launched at half the price of what the original retailed at.
Today, we found out that it will be coming to Malaysia and the device will also cost less than half of the original’s RM1,376 price tag.

A couple of weeks ago, Apple had admitted that they were intentionally slowing down older iPhones with a bad battery. That had created a furore as it was perceived by some as a way to get existing users to upgrade to their latest iPhone.
According to Apple, the move was necessary to prevent sudden iPhone shutdowns and to squeeze as much battery life from a faulty battery. Those affected can regain their full performance by swapping their iPhone battery for a new one. As a gesture of goodwill, Apple has offered discounted battery replacements for the iPhone 6 and above.
