I’ll be blunt. I wasn’t really expecting too much from SHARP‘s new devices — the Z2 and M1. When I heard that they were launching two new smartphones in Malaysia, I thought “OK, more mid-range devices that people will forget about”. After spending some time with them, I ended up quite impressed.
Good news Kuala Lumpur, Uber is rolling out upfront fares when you request uberX rides in our nation’s capital city.

Going through life alone is never ideal and you’re most likely to enjoy it better when surrounded by friends. LG knows this and wants to metaphorically do the same for its flagship smartphone. Google tried and are still toying around with modular parts through their Project Ara program and there’s even a smartphone case that lets you do the same.
LG believes that we’re still yet to reach “peak smartphone” and whilst moving forward, modules and add-on peripherals are the paths to take. The idea is exciting and being the first to take it on is a big deal but if others follow suit and do better, trouble might loom.

So it looks just how it was rumoured and the majority of reactions that we saw were negative. Are we just jumping the gun and passing our views without knowing the whole picture? That was the case during the Nexus 6P by Huawei with many throwing shade at the Stormtrooper visor. In the end, we warmed up to the idea and design.
Will we embrace the same scenario this time? Well, let’s take a look at what the LG G5 has to offer.

The big daddy of the round smartwatch was always the original Moto 360, with its sexy round looks and edge-to-edge thin bezel display. It looked classy and simply reminded smartwatch makers that the smartwatch doesn’t need to have a massively redesigned look — classic good looks worked just fine, if not better.
While the second generation Moto 360 fixed many of the problems that existed with the original smartwatch, there just didn’t seem to be enough to set it apart from its other Android Wear rivals. Matters are made worse in Malaysia as the biggest selling point of the Moto 360 — Moto Maker — isn’t even available here.
However, if you’re like me, and have coveted this watch since you first laid eyes on it, good news! It finally got its official release here in Malaysia.
