Remember when Disney announced that they were pulling their content from Netflix? The silver lining there was that it doesn’t really affect us in Malaysia, but there’s even more good news and that’s because Disney’s content is now available on iflix.
They call us the Selfie Generation and I’d love to say no, but everywhere I look, all I see are people taking selfies. So I guess it’s not that surprising that smartphone manufacturers these days are doing everything they can to capitalise on this psychological need that has ingrained itself into this generation’s mind.
OK, maybe psychological need was a little melodramatic, but the fact remains that companies like vivo are launching way more selfie-centric devices than probably anyone saw coming…and people are buying them by the bucketload. In any case, if you’ve ever been someone who wants to get their hands on one of vivo’s ‘Perfect Selfie’ V5s and V5 Plus handsets, this may be the best way to do so.
Xiaomi is back at it again and this time the company has revealed a pair of affordable Redmi Note devices which will likely serve as a primer for their upcoming Redmi Note 5 devices. These new phones are called the Redmi Note 5A and Redmi Note 5A Prime, and prices start at just under RM450.
Nubia pulled an interesting rabbit out of their hat when the company announced their brand new flagship smartphone, the Nubia Z17. It had all the juicy specs plus a few cool tricks up its sleeve which made it rather exciting when the company said it would land in Malaysia this month.
Well, that day hasn’t come yet but the ZTE sub brand is bringing in another interesting new device. It’s called the Z17 mini and if you’ve read the headline, you know it packs quite a punch.
Oh, how heads turned when people saw the ZenFone 3. Shiny, glass, metal and with a price tag that shocked the world after the super bang-for-your-buck ZenFone 2 series. It was a bold move by the company but ultimately, at least in Malaysia, things didn’t go so well.
This year, they’re sticking to their guns and the ZenFone 4 plus its high-end brother — the ZenFone 4 Pro — share a lot in common with last year’s ZenFone 3 series. However, the question now is: Have they learned their lesson?
The launch of (probably) the most anticipated Android smartphone yet is just around the corner. Samsung’s Galaxy Note8 has a lot riding on its shoulders after the disaster that was its predecessor, and from the looks of things, is poised to deliver a truly stunning flagship smartphone experience.
However, all that high-end technowizardry will obviously come with a price and if this latest leak is to be believed, that price tag will be pretty high. Read the rest of this entry »
It isn’t difficult to figure out who leads the whole selfie-centric mid-range segment of the smartphone market. OPPO found a niche for itself and has reaped the benefits by selling the right kind of smartphone to the right kind of people.
Many have tried to compete with them in this lucrative segment but to varying amounts of success. This year, they’re getting a new challenger as ASUS brings back one of its most beloved smartphones, the Zenfone Selfie. This year, it’s called the ZenFone 4 Selfie and ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro, but does it have what it takes to topple the king of the hill?

After being wildly successful with bang-for-your-buck smartphones, ASUS decided they wanted to go down the premium route instead so in came the ZenFone 3 series, bathed in glass and metal like no ZenFone had been before. While it certainly turned heads, there was that group of people who couldn’t accept that they had to pay a premium price tag for an ASUS badged phone.
Was that the right choice for them? I don’t know quite yet, but one thing’s for sure, the company’s brand new ZenFone 4 lineup proves that the premium-ness is here to stay.

At last, the time has come and we finally get a proper Nokia flagship smartphone that’s running on Android. It’s called the Nokia 8 and it’s an important device because it will show the world whether HMD Global (the company that owns the right to Nokia’s smartphones) has a grasp on how to make a compelling Android flagship — one that will capture the magic of the Nokias of old.
The result? Well, as it stands now, it looks like it’s a little bit of yes and no.
