At a glitzy event in London today, Huawei announced four new mobile devices – the Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, the Mate 20 X, and the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 20 RS. The Mate 20 RS, with its Porsche Design DNA is regarded as the most premium version of the Mate 20 series but it borrows a lot of its specifications and components from the Mate 20 Pro.
So what sets the Mate 20 RS with the Mate 20 Pro? Here’s a quick breakdown.
At a closed-door event yesterday, PROTON unveiled its first-ever SUV, the PROTON X70. The X70 also marks the end of PROTON’s long-standing tradition of naming its cars using proper nouns instead now all future PROTON models will adopt an alpha-numerical naming convention.
The move to change the way PROTON cars are named is sad for me. The names PROTON use during its early days were among the best names you could have for car. Names like “Saga”, “Wira”, “Satria”, “Putra”, “Perdana”, “Juara” are all unquestionably Malaysian.
Remember seeing a PROTON Wira when I was on holiday in the UK and when I was studying in Australia, I found out that there was a very active PROTON Satria GTI club there. This made me beam with pride. A name like the X70 doesn’t make me feel anything.
OPPO has released a teaser video about its upcoming smartphone – the R17 Pro. While the video is only fifteen seconds long, it reveals two very important detail about the phone. One, the R17 Pro has – what looks to be – a variable aperture lens and two, the phone has three cameras on the back.
With three cameras, three different lenses and a total image pixel count of 68 megapixels, the Huawei P20 Pro has what can be regarded as the most advanced camera ever put in a smartphone you can buy today but do you really need three cameras? Are there any appreciable performance gains with having three cameras? Let’s take a closer look what the three cameras on the Huawei P20 Pro actually do.
At a stylish event in Paris, Huawei today announced the P20 and flagship P20 Pro with the world’s first 40MP triple camera in a smartphone. The two devices are expected to be released in Malaysia in the first week of April. Though local prices have not been announced, if previous trends are anything to go by, we expect the P20 to be around RM2,500 and the P20 Pro around RM3,500.
While launched at the same time and the two devices essentially carry the same name, the P20 and P20 Pro are very different phones. Here’s a rundown of the similarities and differences between the P20 and P20 Pro.

Asus kicked off its year with a big party at Mobile World Congress 2018 announcing three new phones, the ZenFone Lite, the ZenFone 5 and the flagship ZenFone 5Z. We’ll talk about the ZenFone Lite in a later post, for now I want to concentrate on the two more interesting models – the ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5z.
The ZenFone 5 is the most intelligent smartphone Asus has ever made, or so they claim. The device was introduced with a range of what Asus claim is AI technology enhancing seven key performance aspects of the device – AI Display, AI Camera, AI Ringtone, AI Gallery, AI Charging, AI Boost, AI Photo Learning.
Before we go into details on the what these AI enhancements do, let’s talk about the specs of the ZenFone 5.

Nostalgia is a funny thing, it plays tricks on you. Nostalgia fills the gaps in your memories to make it seem that what you remember from the past are as good as you think they were, you reminisce. The problem with nostalgia is that sometimes what you remember and what actually happened are two different things.
When Nokia announced the 8110 4G in Barcelona ahead of the Mobile World Congress, the stage was filled with talk about nostalgia for the phone and the Matrix – the cult-classic that made the original 8110 famous.
Our younger readers might not know this but before iPhones and Samsung Galaxy phones became the staple, the smartphone market was once dominated by one name – BlackBerry. Back in the early 2000s, BlackBerry was the standard for mobile communications for business. BlackBerry devices like the Bold and Curve where the must have status symbols when you’re in the boardroom. Back then, if you wanted to be taken seriously in the workplace, you got to be seen with a BlackBerry.
Ok, the last line was an exaggeration but those who are familiar with BlackBerry will agree, like the personal computer, the internet and email, BlackBerry phones redefined how we worked. And today, with BlackBerry no longer making phones, you can argue that there is a hole where the brand used to occupy providing a reliable, secure and flexible business-friendly enterprise-level solution for mobile users.
So, your iPhone’s battery life is getting worse and it probably gets slower with the latest iOS update. If you don’t plan on replacing the device, you can fix the iPhone with a simple battery replacement.
For those looking for a cheaper replacement, most people would be wondering if the batteries they are getting are the real deal. One guy in China thinks he can tell a real from a fake but it turns out to be a bad idea.
