If you’ve been on Facebook recently, you’ve probably seen a post of an infographic that was published in a local daily about electronic pick-pocketing. The infographic suggests that criminals can use smartphones and other NFC-enabled devices to steal card information, at times, without you even knowing it. Then, they can use that information to make transactions “without authorisation” as well as “clone cards”.
Well, we did some digging and here are 5 reasons why that’s simply untrue.
CES is a time for technological showcase. It’s a show where manufacturers from around the world gather and show off what they’re capable of. Although many of these devices don’t actually go on sale until much later in the year, it’s still really interesting to see these concepts and ideas.
However, a recent video has surfaced on YouTube, allegedly revealing that even Nokia had something on display in CES. And that something is their upcoming Android flagship smartphone, the Nokia 8.
Do you prefer a large smartphone with a big beautiful display or a small device that’s easy to pocket? That was always the trade-off we had to make when deciding on a device. But what if you could have both?
Well, that’s where the “foldable” smartphone idea comes into play. We saw Samsung patenting their idea of a foldable smartphone early last year, but we had no indication on when this device would see the light of day. If a recent report by The Korean Herald is to be believed that day could be somewhere in Q3 of 2017.
In the past few years, Huawei usually announces their wearables and tablets at Mobile World Congress. For the upcoming one that’s happening next month, the Chinese smartphone maker is expected to announce their latest flagship which is likely to be the P10.
An interesting report has emerged on SamMobile which indicates that Samsung’s Galaxy C9 Pro smartphone might make its way to Malaysia in the coming weeks. Previously, the Galaxy C9 Pro already saw its launch last year as a China-exclusive smartphone.
Water resistance on smartphones is still not as common as you think, especially when you look at smartphones that aren’t flagship devices. Even the super pricey Google Pixel doesn’t come with any form of meaningful water resistance.
This makes Samsung’s decision to include IP68 water resistance in their new mid-range Galaxy A smartphones all the more interesting. They’ve launched the two brand new smartphones, the Galaxy A5 (2017) and Galaxy A7 (2017), here in Malaysia but the question is: Should you be looking for water resistance when you’ve got a fixed budget in mind?

Samsung will be announcing the Galaxy A (2017) series next week and Malaysia is among the first wave countries to get it. The Malaysian launch is happening on the 5th January and we now have more details on its pre-order promo. Read on for the full details.

The total recall of the Galaxy Note7 had left a gaping hole for those looking for a flagship smartphone with a stylus. The ageing Galaxy Note5 is the only option right now and Samsung is unlikely to announce a new Galaxy Note device until Q3 next year.
While the Galaxy S8 is expected to be released in the coming months, Galaxy Note users may have something extra to look forward to.
As we enter the new year, Samsung is getting ready to launch its new Galaxy A series for 2017. This is the 3rd generation of its premium mid-range smartphone lineup.
