Everyone uses their smartphones differently. Some used it for keeping in touch with voice calls, while others must stay connected with data 24/7. Even when it comes to data, your actual usage can differ greatly from others. There are people who can’t get enough of social updates and there are video junkies who can’t live without binge-watching their drama series on the go.
Your mobile habits can define the type of monster that’s lurking within you. Are you a movie buff? Or are you a social media addict? U Mobile has devised a simple quiz so you can find out. Take the quiz now!
During the launch of the ZenFone 4, ASUS has also introduced a 360 camera which can you can hook up onto your existing smartphone. It’s called the ASUS 360 camera and it’s slightly smaller than a ping pong ball.
The ASUS ZenFone 4 series is now official and ASUS Malaysia certainly isn’t wasting any time as it opens pre-orders starting today. This is probably one of the fastest smartphone rollout yet in Malaysia.

It isn’t difficult to figure out who leads the whole selfie-centric mid-range segment of the smartphone market. OPPO found a niche for itself and has reaped the benefits by selling the right kind of smartphone to the right kind of people.
Many have tried to compete with them in this lucrative segment but to varying amounts of success. This year, they’re getting a new challenger as ASUS brings back one of its most beloved smartphones, the Zenfone Selfie. This year, it’s called the ZenFone 4 Selfie and ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro, but does it have what it takes to topple the king of the hill?
After being wildly successful with bang-for-your-buck smartphones, ASUS decided they wanted to go down the premium route instead so in came the ZenFone 3 series, bathed in glass and metal like no ZenFone had been before. While it certainly turned heads, there was that group of people who couldn’t accept that they had to pay a premium price tag for an ASUS badged phone.
Was that the right choice for them? I don’t know quite yet, but one thing’s for sure, the company’s brand new ZenFone 4 lineup proves that the premium-ness is here to stay.
It was reported earlier that Google is paying Apple US$3 billion to remain as the default search engine on iOS. Now the search giant is also renewing a similar licensing deal with Samsung which would secure them significant search traffic on the world’s number 1 smartphone brand.
At last, the time has come and we finally get a proper Nokia flagship smartphone that’s running on Android. It’s called the Nokia 8 and it’s an important device because it will show the world whether HMD Global (the company that owns the right to Nokia’s smartphones) has a grasp on how to make a compelling Android flagship — one that will capture the magic of the Nokias of old.
The result? Well, as it stands now, it looks like it’s a little bit of yes and no.

Astro had enjoyed 20 years of exclusivity as the sole satellite Pay TV provider in Malaysia. That special privilege finally ended on 28 February 2017, opening up the opportunity for other players to start their own satellite based pay TV service.
With the rise of OTT (Over-The-Top) players such as Netflix and iflix, one company believes they have a chance in challenging Astro’s foothold in the pay TV business.
