ASUS Malaysia will be selling their Zenfone 2 on their online store starting tomorrow. If you prefer to get it cheaper with contract, Digi is now offering the Zenfone 2 on their online store as well.
As revealed during the launch, Digi is offering just 2 models - the ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE550ML with a 5.5" HD 720p display and the higher spec Zenfone 2 ZE551ML with a 5.5" Full HD display. Both of which are offered with Digi's new revamped Smart Plans that offer either more voice calls or more internet.
The Huawei P8 is their latest premium flagship that was revealed officially in 2 sizes. There is however a third model in the form of the P8 Lite that features mid-spec internals and obviously a lower price price tag.
While it wasn't announced, the device has gone on sale quietly in some markets in Europe. In Hungary, a retailer is selling the P8 Lite for 79,999 Hungarian Forint which is about RM1,059. Meanwhile in Germany, the device is available for pre-orders at 249 Euro which is quite close at RM1,011.
The Zenfone series is ASUS surprising breakthrough in the smart phone segment, propelling themselves from zero to Malaysia's #3 smart phone brand in 2015. Not to rest on its laurels, they are about to replicate the same formula for its tablets, offering high-end features and experience in an affordable price range.
According to recent leaks, ASUS is coming up with a new ZenPad series that's expected to run on Intel's new Atom processors.
The Samsung Galaxy S series has always been the defacto Android flagship. Apart from having the best spec in each iteration, most power users would appreciate its removable battery and the option of adding a microSD if needed. This however changed when they introduced its Galaxy S6 and S6 edge. Opting for premium build quality and aesthetics, the new Samsung flagship has dropped most of its expansion options, which is a let down for certain die hard fans.
Coming from the neighbouring camp in South Korea, the LG G4 has emerged and it seems to be a formidable rival for Samsung. Does it stand...
The ASUS Zenfone 2 was launched in Malaysia last weekend and it was immensely popular for having flagship like experience in an affordable mid-range price tag. This is also the World's first 4GB RAM smart phone and you can own it from as low as RM1,099.
If you're trying to get your hands on an official unit, ASUS Malaysia will be offering the devices through their online store starting this Saturday, 16th May at 12PM. Due to its popularity, the Zenfone 2 is likely to be sold out fairly quickly with certain models having limited colour options. For the Malaysian market, we have 5 variants...
Apple has always been reluctant of providing any expandable memory slots for its iPhone and iPad. If you're stuck with just 16GB of storage, SanDisk's iXpand flash drive could be the solution that you've been looking for and it is finally here in Malaysia.
This is basically a thumbdrive with a full sized USB for your computer and it also comes with a pop-up lightning connector that plugs into your iPhone or iPad. This allows you to backup and transfer your photos and videos out easily.
When GST came into effect on 1st April, Malaysian consumers were up in arms over the extra 6% charge on prepaid reloads. There was mass confusion as Deputy Finance Minister Ahmad Maslan retorted that there shouldn't be any price increase. The fact is prepaid services should have been taxed with service charge which the telcos have been absorbing all these while. There's no running away from GST as even postpaid users have always been paying the extra 6% tax on their monthly bills.
After taking charge of the prepaid reload issue, Communications and Multimedia Minister, Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery...
OPPO's next big thing will be its OPPO R7 which would come in 2 different sizes. We've seen the leaked commercial and now we get a clearer look from what appears to be its official render.
The R series is usually associated with its ultra-thin series and before this, their OPPO R5 was the thinnest smart phone in the world at only 4.85mm thick. For the next version, the R7 will come in 2 sizes - the standard R7 that's likely to be a 5 incher and a bigger R7 Plus model which could carry at least 5.5" display.
Smart phones now are getting better in battery life but manufacturers are still cashing in on the strong demand for affordable power banks. Following the popularity of Xiaomi powerbanks and the entry of a similar looking ASUS ZenPower, Honor has released a new 13,000mAh power bank which looks awfully familiar.
It shares the similar aluminium body look of a Mi Power Bank and comes with the squarish cigarette pack shape of the ASUS ZenPower. Even the 13,000mAh label underneath looks identical as well.
Xiaomi powerbanks are always a hit. Its current 10,400mAh version that's sold at RM49 is the defacto bang of the buck champion for those needing extra juice on the go. At 250grams, it is thick and bulky but now they have released a newer version which is more pocket friendly.
Following its new super slim 5,000mAh model, its mid-range 10,400mAh power bank has gone on a diet and now they have introduced a 10,000mAh version that's both smaller and lighter.
