My problem with external storage devices is that I’m always worried that I’ll break them. Since I chuck them into backpacks and carry them around with me a lot, the chances of me dropping one are a lot higher than a hard disk that’s mounted in a desktop PC for example.
So, while I love the idea of being able to carry all my stuff around with me, I am not a fan of having breaking that hard disk and losing all my data.
And this is where Western Digital’s My Passport external SSDs come into play. They come packed with one of my favourite features ever — shock resistance. Fingers of butter, meet your match.
It’s hard to think of a smartphone that has had more expectation placed on it than the Samsung Galaxy Note8. Its disastrous predecessor left a scar in the South Korean electronics giant’s reputation so deep that I don’t know how long it will take before the world stops making “will it explode?” jokes.
So, if there was any smartphone that could redeem the company’s reputation in the eyes of its harshest critics, it has to be the Galaxy Note8. This phone needs to be the best phone Samsung has ever made. It needs to be incredible. It needs to be flawless.
Sennheiser is not new to the gaming headset market and this is one of their latest offerings — the Sennheiser GSP 350. Unsexy name aside, the headset comes with some impressive acoustic isolation and Dolby 7.1 Surround. But is it worth your money?

It’s no secret that I wasn’t a big fan of last year’s Xiaomi Mi 5. I didn’t like how it performed, I didn’t like its camera and for the most part, I was quite annoyed that we got what felt like scraps instead of the proper flagship we hyped it up to be.
This year, as Malaysia finally gets its turn at the Xiaomi flagship Mi 6, it’s time to find out if they’ve learned their lessons.
Oh, man has the OnePlus 5 received a lot of hate. From benchmark cheating, all the way to sub-par camera performances that have led the public to call DxOMark’s credibility into question, OnePlus’ latest flagship hasn’t had the smoothest of launches.
But, while it’s easy to get caught up with all the hate, all the rage, and all the feelings of dissatisfaction surrounding this smartphone, a lot of people tend to forget one really, really important thing about this new flagship:
It’s a damn good smartphone.
When Huawei introduced their first Watch, it was one of the best looking smartwatches of 2015. It had a classic round face design with a premium looking stainless steel case. The original Huawei Watch also had one of the largest screens with a full-circle 1.4” AMOLED display without Moto 360‘s ugly “flat tyre”.
Moto’s G5 Plus came to me with a whole bunch of hype surrounding it. Reviews raved about how brilliant it was, and how it was all the Android smartphone you needed.
Needless to say, the bargain-hunter in me was looking forward to testing out this supposedly amazing budget smartphone.

There was a time where I seriously considered the merits of getting an Android tablet. In my head I had my desktop in my work room, my laptop in my bedroom and my phone with me on the can. But I didn’t have a device in my living room and that’s where I thought the tablet would fit perfectly.
Talk about #firstworldproblems, amirite? Every now and again, this small part of my mind begins to entertain the idea of a tablet again and I start to think that maybe it was time for me to get one.
And then I got my hands on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 — a powerful Android tablet with a beautiful screen, and a nice set of speakers. Theoretically, this is exactly what I needed but after spending some time with it, the Tab S3 only served to prove that nobody really needs an Android tablet.

The tablet is in a weird spot. It was supposed to be this hybrid that lives somewhere between the laptop and the smartphone, complementing both. But as smartphones got bigger and laptops got lighter, smaller and more powerful, it became really hard to justify picking up a tablet. And so, the need for such a device dwindled.
But now I think I’ve found the tablet’s salvation. It’s called the Lenovo Yoga Book and I love it to bits.
“What were you thinking, HTC?!” was the first thought that ran through my head when I saw the Taiwanese company announce the U Ultra and U Play smartphones. HTC, the manufacturer that set the gold standard for the metal bodied smartphone, was ditching the one thing they did better than anyone else.
