Samsung Gear S3 Frontier review: A better all-rounder

Posted:  December 1, 2016   By:    16 comments   

161201-samsung-gear-s3-review-malaysia-3

Smartwatches don’t do enough for me. They’ve always been this thing that costs as much as a smartphone but can’t do as much as a smartphone. I guess the benefit is that it lives on your wrist which makes it really portable, but is that enough to justify dropping thousands on one of these things? No, not to me at least.

But, I understand that there’s a demand for a smartwatch. Partly because it can come in handy, but mostly because people think it’s really cool. Well, if you cool is what you’re after and you don’t want to break your bank, Samsung’s new Gear S3 is definitely a device you should consider.

161130-dji-inspire-2-slow-down-speed

DJI had recently introduced its Inspire 2 drone which comes with two cameras. It looks badass with its tougher construction and the legs are also retractable so it won’t block the camera.

When it was first announced, the DJI Inspire 2 was capable of flying up to 108km/h (67mph) and 0-80km/h (50mph) is done in just 4 seconds. Unfortunately, DJI has to put a cap on those speeds and it’s for a good reason.

161130-smallest-gameboy-console

When someone says “portable gaming console” I bet even they weren’t expecting this! Yup, that’s a tiny, tiny Game Boy. It’s small enough to fit on your keychain, but it’ll do much more than look pretty.

It actually works.

Before Samsung releases its next big thing next year, the Korean smartphone maker would need to assure consumers that such incidents would not occur again with their future models.

161129-cfm-complaints-telco-drop-calls

If you’ve been experiencing dropped calls or delayed SMS/messaging in recent times, it’s probably because your telecommunication service provider (telco) is currently carrying out recalibration work on their base stations.

Most of these disruptions should be minor and primarily affect 2G customers. However if you’re experiencing prolonged service disruption, what do you do?

Well, the Consumer Forum of Malaysia (CFM) recommends that you call your telco.
