Most Android smartphone makers would usually ship their devices with their very own custom skin. Xiaomi has MIUI, Huawei uses EMUI while Samsung preloads their smartphones with Samsung Experience (previously TouchWiz). Lately, there are a couple of brands that have experimented with stock Android under the Android One program.
While Samsung is persistent in having its own unique Samsung Experience, it appears that the South Korean smartphone brand will be releasing its first stock Android device for the emerging markets.
If you’ve read any of my previous Huawei reviews, you’ll know that I’m not a big fan of their software. I’ve always been pretty impressed with the company’s ability to make great smartphone hardware, but EMUI is just not my cup of tea. Yes, it’s better than it was, but that’s not really a high benchmark to begin with.
But, there is a team of developers called OpenKirin and they’ve just launched a brand new site dedicated to helping you get your Huawei/honor device running stock Android.

After launching the honor 7A in Malaysia, honor will be introducing yet another budget smartphone. It will go on sale next week and honor will be providing something extra for the first few hundred buyers.
YouTube has become the go-to online video platform of the modern age. Whether you want to know how to replace an SSD on your laptop, make a crepe or watch people struggle to climb up slippery steps with an Australian commentating, YouTube is probably where you go. It also played an instrumental part in launching a whole generation of amazing creators and some of the best content we’ve ever seen in our lives.
But it’s also hard to deny the backlash YouTube has received, especially from its own creator community, on a myriad of issues stemming from the platform’s unrivaled control on the modern-day consumer’s attention. When there’s simply nowhere else to go, you’re left at the mercy of the platform.
The good news is that Instagram wants to change that with their brand new long-form video service IGTV. However, they’re taking a rather oddball approach to it.
vivo has just revealed the Y81, a FullView smartphone that’s big on screen with a smaller price tag. If the current vivo V9 is way above your budget, this could be an affordable alternative.
UPDATE: TM has announced a new entry-level RM79/month Fibre plan and new Turbo Plans with speeds of up to 800Mbps.
Earlier this week, the Minister of Communications and Multimedia had announced that Malaysians could enjoy as much as 25% price reduction on broadband by end of this year. This is due to the implementation of Mandatory Standard on Access Pricing (MSAP) which reduces wholesale prices for broadband.
TM has just issued a statement to respond to the minister’s announcement.
Xiaomi will be announcing a couple of devices on 25 June and one of it is yet another mid-range smartphone. After introducing the Redmi 5 Plus and Redmi 5 Note series, the next device will be the Redmi 6 Pro. This is the first Redmi series to come with a notch display.
