OK. Early last year, we saw ASUS take a stab at smashing the smartphone camera scene wide open with the introduction of a handset that had 3X optical zoom but had a form-factor that didn’t equal gaffer taping a smartphone to your DSLR. It was an interesting idea, but, as we now know, the device wasn’t a smashing success.
There were many reasons why the ZenFone Zoom flopped, so this year, when ASUS invited me to an undisclosed location in Pahang to try its successor — the brand new ZenFone 3 Zoom — my mission was to find out if they’ve learnt their lessons…and not get killed in some jungle.
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.

TM’s webe is the only telco that offers a single postpaid plan that comes with unlimited calls, sms and data for RM79/month. The biggest limitation, of course, is its tethering hotspot feature. Unlike other telcos that let their subscribers tether for free, webe charges you each time you need to use your phone as a WiFi hotspot.
Probably after getting enough feedback and a nudge from its competitor, webe has finally revised its WiFi hotpsot/tethering offering. On top of that, they are also throwing free hotspot data for the next few months.
