After ASUS showed the world what a proper, balls-to-the-wall gaming smartphone could look like — and the generally positive reception it received — it looks like Huawei’s eager to grab their own slice of this fresh new pie. Today, the company — who is also the third largest smartphone maker in the world — revealed to us that they will be launching their very own gaming smartphone later this year.
Oh snap. We just received news that the OPPO Find X — easily the most exciting smartphone we’ve seen in 2018 so far — will be launching in Malaysia in two weeks. Yes, that’s the phone with the motorised sliding camera that pops up.

When OPPO launched their brand new flagship smartphone, the OPPO Find X, I was stunned. Of all the phones that were launched in 2018 thus far, I can’t believe that the handset I was most excited about was a smartphone from OPPO. The same company that has built a name for themselves selling overpriced selfie centric smartphones.
The OPPO Find X was different. I thought it was easily the most innovative move in smartphone design this year. However, as is always the case, whenever there are people trying something new, there will always be doubters. People who say it won’t work. People who say it can’t work.
There are plenty of flagship smartphones to choose from and for those who want to stand out, the LG G7 ThinQ is an interesting option. The only problem is that it’s as elusive as a unicorn in Malaysia.
For the past couple of years, LG Mobile doesn’t seem to be interested in selling their smartphones in our competitive market. The last “official” set they introduced here was the LG V30+ and it arrived about 7 months late.
If you’re still interested in the G7 ThinQ, retailer DirectD is now offering import sets with stocks now available.
You don’t know what you have until it’s gone.
This, I believe, is something many of us know to be true, but often forget because…well, otherwise the saying wouldn’t exist. For many of us, we experience this very often in our lives, whether it’s that transition from moving out of your parents house or leaving the comforting stability of schooling life.
That saying, distilled into its purest form, basically means that we often don’t know what we will actually miss until its gone. And today — or more accurately, in the past few days –I’ve had the joy of being reminded how true this is. I am, of course, talking about the HTC U12+ — in case I wasn’t being obvious enough in my intro — and how much I now miss buttons. Physical clicky buttons on the side of my phone.

Yes, they skipped 7, but who cares? Xiaomi’s brand new flagship smartphone has finally launched as the Mi 8. And, from the looks of things, this 2018 device holds true to a lot of what we’ve already come to love about Xiaomi smartphones.
Oh, and there are two more variants besides the normal Mi 8 that’s designed for both the baller and the more sensible of you.
It’s finally time for HTC to flex their muscles. After the excellent HTC U11 and U11+, what more does HTC have in store for with the latest HTC U12+ smartphone? Well, apparently they’re removing all their physical buttons and adding two cameras. Also, despite the “+” moniker, there’s only one smartphone.
This is it boys and girls. OnePlus’ brand new flagship smartphone, the OnePlus 6 has been officially launched. It’s bigger, it’s faster and it’s probably the prettiest OnePlus flagship since the OnePlus X.
When you’re looking for a value-oriented device, good looks are usually sacrificed for raw spec-sheet performance. And that’s completely fair because companies have to shave bits here and there anyway if they want to keep prices low.
Apparently, honor didn’t get the memo because their flagship smartphones — since the gorgeous honor 8 — have remained some of the prettiest smartphones money can buy. Now, they’ve got the brand new honor 10 and I think it’s easily the prettiest one they’ve made yet.
LG has finally introduced the LG G7 ThinQ, its latest flagship smartphone that succeeds the LG G6. This is the phone that would compete directly with current flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Huawei P20 series.
