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.
If you’re looking for some great deals on Apple products, you might want to check out the Switch Warehouse Clearance sale happening from 2nd to 4th March.
Of course some of the units on offer are ex-demo units or end-of-life (EOL) units and some are just plain old models but hey where can you get an iPhone 6S for RM800. Yes, the iPhone 6S is already three years but it’s still a capable phone for the price of a basic Android phone today.
And if you check Apple’s website, a brand new iPhone 6S retails for RM2,249. So the demo unit being offered at the Switch Warehouse Clearance is RM1,449 cheaper – that’s almost 3 times cheaper.
There are other products on offer at the clearance as well, if you’re looking for the iPad or iPad Pro (both 9.7 and 12-inch models are available). There are deals on Macs and MacBooks. Check out the full list of Apple products on offer below.

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.
The Razer Phone is the ultimate smartphone for gaming. It has a 5.7″ Quad HD display with a fluid 120Hz refresh rate and a pair of front-facing stereo speakers that are enhanced by Dolby Atmos. If this is the device you’re looking for, you’ll be happy to know that you can get one for under RM3,000 in Malaysia.
The DJI Spark is a great drone for first timers but if you’re looking for something even more affordable, here comes Tello. It’s a drone by a Chinese startup called Ryze that’s powered by DJI and Intel. Not only it’s easy to fly, it even encourages kids to learn how to code.
HP has just announced a worldwide voluntary safety recall for selected notebook and mobile workstation batteries. Apparently, some batteries have the possibility of overheating which will pose a fire and burn hazard to its customers.
These affects selected HP laptop models including the HP 11, Envy m6 and Pavilion x360. If you’re using an HP laptop, it is recommended that you check if your device is affected and take necessary action to minimise the risk.
As Samsung prepares to launch its upcoming Galaxy S9/S9+, there’s already a knock-off version spotted in the wild. In terms of design, it looks quite similar to the leaked renders and the gullible ones might be fooled into believing that this is the real deal.
