2017 was a fascinating year for smartphones and mobile tech in general. There were a lot of ups, a lot of downs and some pretty weird stuff along the way but there’s no denying that it was an eventful year.
Now that we’re on the cusp of the next wave of new products for 2018, we thought it’d be cool to take a look at some of the highs and some of the lows in 2017.

The DJI Spark is getting more affordable in Malaysia. Just last week, we spotted an offer for a standalone Spark that’s going for as low as RM1,720. Now you can get one at an even lower price and it even comes with 6 months of extended warranty that’s worth RM300.
Looking for a drone that’s super easy to fly? The DJI Spark is a great way to get started and you don’t even need the remote to operate its basic functions. It’s even smaller than the DJI Mavic Pro, making it more practical to carry a drone around. For those who have been eyeing one for a long time, now is probably the best time to grab one as you can get an official DJI Malaysia unit at over RM500 off.
We love our DJI Spark drone because there are lots to like about it. From stuff like its ultra-portable size, its flying prowess, image quality and even the stability of its mechanical gimbal, the Spark is a great entry-level drone.
However, if you think that DJI was able to produce something this small and affordable without at least some limitations, you’re kidding yourself. After spending some time with the Spark, here are five big things we learned that we think you should know about before you think of buying one for yourself.
Many would argue that the DJI Spark is a game-changing device as far as solid consumer video drones go and a lot of that has to do with giving the user the ability to fly the drone (in a meaningful way) purely through gestures.
However, there was always one big thing that the videography drone could not do…until now.
We got our hands on the DJI Spark Fly More combo. Here’s a closer look at the drone and everything you get in the box with this combo.
“Now everyone can fly” was the line that stuck with me the most after DJI launched the Spark in Malaysia. Ignoring the obvious reference to a popular budget airline’s tag, “everyone can fly” is probably the best way to describe what DJI’s Spark can do. It’s an amazingly tiny drone that takes almost no effort to get up in the air.
Drones are taking over the world. As these flying gadgets get more and more accessible, more people are picking one up to have a go at aerial photography themselves.
If you aren’t one of those people but have always wanted to give drones a try, there’s good news! DJI’s smallest (and most beginner-friendly) drone, the DJI Spark, is officially coming to Malaysia very soon.
UPDATE: DJI Spark from authorised DJI distributor is now available for pre-order. Priced at RM2,288.
Can’t wait to get your hands on the DJI Spark? DJI’s smallest new drone is now available in Malaysia and you can pick one up today while stocks last.
