3month later Rrp drop RM500….
Samsung modus operandi


Another thing need to know – the real 3D face recognition or real ID is rumored to be coming to S10 in 2019. Current is “2.5D”.

If they are fast, it could be coming in Note 9 which will debut in 3 months time.

Good to see so much innovation coming in the pipeline.


This is what the KPop fuss was all about!


That is no resale value for phone.
Nowadays all getting more & more features plus the price also getting high.

Im only change my phone if my phone really die or kong.

    Galaxy Note forever

    Only stupid cheapskates will ever consider buying used phones. Phones are so personal today that they carry all kinds of germs especially if the owners enjoy taking their phones with them into the toilet. With so many reasonably-priced yet good phones in the market today, only fools will part with their money for one that others have already used and abused.


Tried the s9 yesterday at samsung shop, the camera are very fast and clear. Selfies photo are very nice and the 3d emoji thingy are very cool. The stereo audio are nice but loudness has been reduced. Other than that the designs are very similar to s8.


Nowadays, screen, processor , memory and build quality are already very good even in mid range phones. For normal applications more than sufficient. Only differentation for hardware manufacturers is the camera. The race to dslr camera performance is still on.


Thinking of getting the S9, but my recent experience with Note FE was very bad -the GPS failed after 9 days. I love all my past Samsung phones but this latest one really disappointed me and I got lost in Puchong and stuck in traffic jam the other day. I was offered a refund – do you think I will be more lucky with this latest model?
