I was a little apprehensive about Huawei‘s next big device. Every single leak I saw, I prayed and hoped that it wouldn’t be what it looks like it would, but as the evidence continues to pile up, it’s becoming clear that there’s no point in my resistance. Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro will almost certainly have a square camera module.
Touch ‘n Go’s radio-frequency identification (RFID) system has received a lot of mixed reactions so far. It’s never easy to completely revamp a system that a lot of people have been using, especially if it meant throwing out everything they already invested in to make a fresh switch.
But while it’s easy to be blinded by this, and internet rage, the thing I was more curious about was the technology. Does it work? Is it better than SmartTAG? Is this really our future? After testing it out, here’s what I think.

GoPro has had a rough time. But that doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten how to make the thing they’re practically synonymous with: Action cameras. And their latest device looks pretty bonkers. It’s called the HERO7 Black and this tiny action camera features something called HyperSmooth.
This is it. The future of digital payments is finally here. Well, actually, the future of digital payments is still in the future, but the good news is that the pilot programme for the future of digital payments is finally here.
I am, of course, talking about the thing that’s on everyone’s lips these days when they talk about Touch ‘n Go (TNG): The RFID payment system. However, even though there’s so much chatter around this new toll payment system, there is just as much confusion surrounding it.
So, today, we’re going to try and cut through all that, and give you everything you need to know about TNG’s brand new RFID system.
I don’t know if you remember, but ASUS debuted something really interesting earlier this year when they launched the brand new ZenBook Pro. I mean, they put a 5.5-inch Full HD display right where the touchpad was and I really liked it. It certainly seemed like a more practical approach than something like TouchBar.
Still, I get that that might be a little over the top for some. But, I do think ASUS was onto something when they turned to the touchpad as their next point of innovation. And it looks like they did too, because they’ve started tweaking even the touchpads on their more consumer-friendly ZenBooks.
To me, the Apple Watch has always been the best smartwatch money can buy. I didn’t believe it at first, but when I started using one, there was just no question about it. The closest I ever saw any manufacturer get was Samsung, but while their watch had the excellent rotating bezel, everything else always felt a little lacking.
This year, Apple’s pulling even further ahead of the competition with the Apple Watch Series 4.
Everyone remembers the DJI Mavic Pro. At the time of its launch, there simply wasn’t a drone like it in the market. I mean, yeah there was technically the GoPro Karma, but I’d argue that even that drone is nowhere near as polished as the Mavic Pro.
Not only did the Mavic fold smaller, it also flew better and had all of DJI’s excellent intelligent flight systems and computer vision — it was much better as a standalone product. Meanwhile, the Karma was designed to fit into GoPro’s ecosystem — and I have to say they did a good job there — leveraging the company’s existing action cameras while also adding a touch of modularity with the Karma Grip. At least they were doing a good job, until Karmas started falling out of the sky.
So, I’d argue that the Mavic Pro was definitely in a class of its own. And when you’ve got such a game-changing device, the question becomes: How do you follow it up? Well, DJI thinks the way forward to is to have two versions of the Mavic 2.

I don’t believe anything is more frustrating for a content creator, working with videos and photos, than having your SD card die on you. Well, maybe when Adobe’s Premiere Pro freezes on you before you’ve saved after a 5-hour edit session, but I think that still takes second place to a dead SD card.
The good news is, Sony understands that. In a world full of fragile electronic devices that hold our entire life, the company has unveiled their brand new SD card whose name leaves very little to the imagination.
It has come to a point where a flagship smartphone is never just a smartphone anymore. It’s your camera replacement, your home theater solution, your PC in a pocket and even your swim buddy. This desire to add more and more to a wafer thin handset has become a bit of a double edged sword. Yes, bold new ideas are a great way to push the industry forward, but many of them tend to become nothing more than a gimmick while also adding a significant price premium to your handset. That’s why it has become almost a norm for flagships to cost around RM4,000.
What happened to the good old flagship smartphone that’s only focused on giving you the best smartphone experience? Focused on giving you a smooth and snappy performance with a battery that can last? And most importantly, at a price that more people can afford.
Well, that’s where a brand like POCOPHONE comes in. This small, Xiaomi-backed team of individuals have set out — with laser focus — on doing one thing and one thing alone: To give people what they want. And their first product, the F1, is probably the most focused device I’ve seen launched in a while.
The POCOPHONE F1 officially goes on sale in Malaysia today at all authorised Mi Stores nationwide (and online at Lazada). However, while a lot are stoked that this device has finally launched in Malaysia, there’s still one question left unanswered: Will we be getting the POCOPHONE F1 Armoured Edition with its Kevlar back?
Well, we’ve actually got some info directly from Xiaomi Malaysia about this particular device.
