Every phone, no matter how “revolutionary” will have undoubtedly have compromises, things that people don’t like about it. Things that some of us hate, even. It was that way when Samsung launched the Galaxy Note8, so it’s probably no surprise then that it’s also that way when Apple launched the iPhone X.
Thinking of getting one? We think you should read this first.
iPhone X. Apple’s trying their hardest to convince you that this is the next big thing. That this is the smartphone that all smartphones will look like in the future. That this is the phone all other phones will be benchmarked against.
But is it really? I’m not convinced. I’ve combed through a whole bunch of articles and videos about this smartphone but I’m still unconvinced. All of us at SoyaCincau have a lot of strong opinions about the handset. Some are deeply unimpressed while others are less so.
Despite this back-and-forth debate, though, all of us do agree that there is one big thing on the iPhone X that will almost certainly not be the “future of smartphones”. Yep, this is a story about Face ID.
If there’s one thing people like more than getting new smartphones/gadgets/toys, it’s finding out that their smartphone/gadget/toy is better than everyone else’s. It’s human nature, or maybe just our egos, but the desire to turn everything into a stick measuring contest has been in our blood for generations.
Well, if one of the sticks you want to measure is your flagship smartphone’s camera performance, this article is for you. You seemed to love our last camera comparison, so we’re doing it again, only this time there’s a twist.

This week, if your feed looks anything like mine, it has probably been awash with news of Apple‘s new iPhones. iPhone launches are always exciting (I mean, if you’re into incremental updates, largely similar designs and Apple playing catch up), so it’s not surprising that everyone wants a piece of your attention.
Amidst all that coverage, there is one big question that still looms overhead: How much will it cost in Malaysia? How much of my hard earned, ever depreciating Ringgits will I have to drop to get my hands on the latest and greatest from Apple?
Well, we were wondering too so we did the one thing I got into writing to escape from — math. We looked at the past pricing trends, compared them with our neighbours down south and cross referenced them with the math our colleagues did over at TheSkop. And by “we did the math” I mean Alex did the math, I just stood next to him and pursed my lips.

When it comes to Apple, they have always tried to make things simpler for the general consumer, up to a point that they don’t disclose key hardware details on their keynote or on their product pages. To find out how much RAM and exactly how big its battery capacity is, we usually have to wait for tear downs or benchmarks from the final device. This time, we are able to get a peek through a certification in China.
Apple‘s new iPhone launch took place just yesterday with the company announcing the iPhone 8/8 Plus and the iPhone X. Today, it appears you can already place your pre-orders for the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus on Lazada.

The Apple Watch is no longer just the world’s most popular smartwatch. It’s also currently the world’s number one watch.
For its third generation smartwatch, Apple has retained its iconic square face design but they have added more functions for greater freedom. In last year’s Series 2, Apple had added GPS and water resistance for swimming so that you can use your watch in more places than before. For this year, they are making the watch more independent and you can use it standalone almost anywhere without having to bring your iPhone.
Beginning with the iPhone 3GS, Apple has always introduced an all-new model every 2 years. In a tick-tock cycle, each iPhone gets an incremental update model before it gets a full refresh the following year.
When most people are expecting a brand new design for the iPhone 7, it retained the same looks of its now 3-year old iPhone 6. The only major difference is a dual-camera bump on the iPhone 7 Plus and a new paint job.
Today, Apple has announced the iPhone 8 and although it is a whole new number, it still looks like an iPhone 6 but with more glass just to support a new form of charging. That’s four years in a row with the same design. So what’s really new? Read on to find out.
The iPhone X (pronounced as iPhone 10) is most anticipated iPhone by far. With the manufacturers being obsessed with bezel-less phones with an all-screen display, Apple has finally responded with a futuristic phone of its own.
While the iPhone 8 uses the same traditional design for 4 years in a row, the iPhone X marks their biggest reinvention in 10 years.
With the iPhone 8 and iPhone X revealed, Apple has immediately slashed prices for its existing iPhone models. Apple now maintains a total of 5 models in the lineup with the iPhone SE hitting the entry-level segment followed by the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 7.
If you don’t mind not having the latest, here’s the latest pricing for the current iPhone models.
