The Galaxy S8 is no doubt an improvement over the Galaxy S7/S7 edge. It gets a fresh new design that enables a large display to be fitted on a smaller form factor. When it comes to the main camera, many were somewhat disappointed that the main camera remains virtually the same. It gets a 12MP dual-pixel camera with the same f/1.7 aperture.
The Galaxy S8/S8+ are now available for pre-order through our local telcos in Malaysia. To sweeten the deal, they are also bundling over RM900 worth of freebies as announced by Samsung Malaysia.

The upcoming Galaxy S8 will be getting bigger displays than its phablet Note series. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are expected to come with 5.8″ and 6.2″ Super AMOLED displays respectively, making them the biggest Galaxy S series yet.
Similar to the LG G6 that was announced recently, the new Samsung flagships will be going for a taller proportion with an 18:9 display aspect ratio. Combine that with a reduced bezel design, it’s now possible to have a larger screen without having to feel like a mammoth phablet in your hands.
Furthermore, Samsung will continue to use dual curved displays which would also reduce the overall width. So how do they stack up against the rest? We now have a better visual comparison thanks to serial leakster @onleaks.
U Mobile has just refreshed its prepaid offering with its new UNLIMITED Power Prepaid Plan. The new prepaid features App Onz which gives you free unlimited data to access Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Is it worth to make the switch? We compare both new and old “Power” prepaid plans for your easy reference.
Last week we saw some of the first smartphones to launch locally for the year 2017. They were upper mid-range devices from two of the top 5 smartphone manufacturers in the world and are designed to give you a flagship-like feel for below RM2,000. These devices are the Samsung Galaxy A (2017) and the OPPO R9s.
Despite the rather different marketing skews, these smartphones actually share quite a lot of specifications in common — chief of which are their selfie-centric 16-megapixel front-facing cameras and premium build. But which should you get if you wanted one?
Let’s see if we can help you decide.
