Swap your old 3G SIM card to win cold hard cash from Maxis

Posted:  April 22, 2017   By:    5 comments   

4G can be considered mainstream in Malaysia. Most major towns in Malaysia are covered and most new smartphones launched in the past 2 years have 4G LTE support as standard. However, there’s one thing that limits users from enjoying the full potential of 4G connectivity and that’s the tiny SIM card.

Surprisingly, there are a lot of Malaysians using newer smartphones but they are still stuck with the old 3G SIM from years ago. To entice its subscribers to make the switch, Maxis is kicking off their RM1 million 3G SIM Swap campaign and yes, that’s RM1,000,000 cash up for grabs.

Dear Samsung, thank you for fixing your software

Posted:  April 19, 2017   By:    9 comments   

This is it. The reviews for the Galaxy S8 are all out and if there was one common denominator between all the reviews, it would be that Samsung makes the best smartphone hardware in the world. But since the S6, I’ve always felt that Samsung did hardware extremely well.

What they were rubbish at was their software, more specifically their Android skin. Gosh, I hate TouchWiz. But it seems like Samsung has been listening because when I spent my time with the Galaxy S8, I actually enjoyed the software experience.

Now, where do I begin?

Perhaps I should start with the moment I picked this smartphone up. The sudden rush of wonder that coursed through my body caught me by surprise. I had seen this handset before in photos and in videos but here, actually holding it in my hand, gave the smartphone an entirely new vibe, a vibe I didn’t expect.
