Xiaomi has always been the king of value for money and when it comes to smartphones priced under RM1,000, it is hard not to recommend the Redmi Note 4. It offers top-notch specs and a decent build at a price that’s hard to beat. When the Redmi 5 Plus was introduced a couple of months back, the specs are roughly the same as the current Redmi Note 4.
For those looking for a proper upgrade, Xiaomi has officially announced its latest Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro. The event took place in India, which is Xiaomi’s biggest market outside of China.
UPDATE: The total savings is RM700 as the original RRP is RM4,299.
The DJI Mavic Air is the most advanced compact drone yet and it’s coming to Malaysia as early as next month. A couple of retailers have started accepting pre-orders for the new drone and now there’s an interesting offer on Shopee. Not only you can get it with a significant discount, it’s also an official DJI Malaysia unit via authorised distributor ECS ASTAR Sdn Bhd.
honor Malaysia has just shared a teaser image for an incoming smartphone. It shows 4 circles, which is somewhat similar to the Nova 2i and it comes with just two words: “E9ually Beautiful”. It is likely to be released right after Chinese New Year and it could be a compact alternative to the honor 7X.
The HomePod is finally available at selected markets and this is Apple’s smart speaker that comes with built-in Siri. The cylinder speaker looks quite sturdy but if you intend to fix it, you’re probably out of luck based on ifixit’s latest teardown.
Xiaomi will be announcing its latest mid-range smartphones, the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro, in India this afternoon. These are the successors of the current value for money, Redmi Note 4, and they are setting up the game with a Full Display (18:9) and a new dual-camera setup. After the launch of the iPhone X, the unmistakable vertical dual-camera bump is making its way to more Android phones and from the recent leaks, it appears that the Redmi Note 5 Pro will follow this same design.
There was a small part of me that was worried that the OnePlus 5T would be a phone of missed opportunities. Although OnePlus equipped the new phone with a whole bunch of goodies, one of the biggest things I wanted to see upgraded was left untouched.
So, when it came time to review the device, I made it my quest to find out if OnePlus had made the right call. And after a couple of weeks with it, my answer is still no. But, the rest of the phone is so good that I don’t think it matters as much.
