The iPhone SE packs a powerful A9 processor in a compact 4″ smartphone body but is it really as good as the iPhone 6s? As we wait for the iPhone SE to hit the shelves, it appears that the new device is faster than its bigger models.
In the past, the cheapest iPhone you can buy is basically a rehash of an outdated model with a smaller storage option. We’ve seen this since the iPhone 3GS/iPhone 4 days. That’s no longer the case with the iPhone SE. It is Apple’s most affordable new iPhone and it’s just as powerful as their current flagship.
When the Nexus 6P came out, the question on everyone’s lips was: “Is it as good as the other flagships?”. Aptly named the 6P, it seems that 2015 was the year of the six-branded smartphone, as the Nexus 6P, together with the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Apple iPhone 6s Plus, carved a “holy-trinity” out of the smartphone crop.
With these three priced at the top of the food chain as no-nonsense, no-compromise, best-phablets-money-can-buy devices, consumers everywhere were torn. The line separating these three devices were so thin that no matter which device you chose, you would end up with a great phablet nonetheless.
But, c’mon, we have to crown a winner. There is only one sport at the top of that podium, and today we fill it.
Bam! Mobile World Congress 2016 passed by like in just a blink of the eye and now we’re suffering from post-congress withdrawals. Not without good reason, by the way. Three (big) smartphone makers released their flagships for this year including the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. On a less than positive note, it’s rather sad that we won’t be getting the standard Galaxy S7 in Malaysia.
Although we pretty much knew everything about the two smartphones prior to the South Korean manufacturer taking the MWC floor, we didn’t know how good the camera on the follow-up to the Galaxy S6 flagships would be.
We were eager to find out so we pit the edgy Samsung number against other formidable smartphone cameras.

Remember that guy that ordered his Nexus 6P from Lazada? Here comes another shocking story and, this time, it involves a brand new iPhone 6s.
A guy had ordered a brand new iPhone 6s 16GB through 11street’s shocking deals. For less than RM3,000, that’s a pretty good deal considering it retails originally for RM3,199. A few days later, he had a shocking discovery as he opened the brand new box.
If you’re using a 16GB iPhone, we know how frustrating it gets when you’re out of storage. Sure you can free up space by moving your photos but recently there’s a bug on WhatsApp that appears to be sucking up more storage than usual.
Experiments are fun, mobile related experiments are even more so. MacRumors decided to record a blocked number’s attempts to call and text a blocker on an iPhone. And we’re sure that you’ve always wondered what actually goes on and whether these blocked numbers can actually reach you. This was what they found out.

The Maxis Zerolution program is a different way of owning a smartphone. It offers 0% interest monthly installments, zero upfront payment and the easy option to upgrade to a new model every year. When it was made available for the iPhone, Maxis only offered it for the entry-level 16GB iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. With growing user needs and the arrival of 4K video recording, 16GB isn’t going to cut it and it makes more sense to get a bigger capacity iPhone.
Finally, it looks like the folks at Maxis had listened and they are now offering the hassle-free ownership program for more models from the older iPhone 6 to the current largest iPhone 6s Plus 128GB.
Scammers’ back, back again. This time, they’re going after a bunch of people who have a half eaten fruit plastered on their device. In this latest scam, Apple users are being warned not to open a text message sent by “iTunes” requesting for their personal account information.
It appears that a strange bug affecting many Safari users on iPhones, iPads and Macs, is causing the browser to crash for no apparent reason. Many have discovered that it could be the “search suggestions” feature and that disabling that would stop the application from crashing, however, that is only a temporary workaround.
