Still looking for a great deal for the iPhone X? Authorised Apple retailer Switch is running a new promo and you can now get the top of the line iPhone X 256GB in Malaysia for the price of a base 64GB model. It’s like getting a 4X storage upgrade for free.
A couple of months back, Maxis has stopped offering the iPhone on its Zerolution program. If you plan to get a new iPhone from them, you could only get it on a standard contract.
Surprisingly, the current iPhone X now appears to be available with Zerolution on Maxis but it’s now different from what it was before.
If you missed Machine’s RM1,000 discount offer for the iPhone X and iPhone 8, here comes another promo from Lazada Malaysia. Similar to Machines, this offer is only applicable to two models – the iPhone X 64GB and iPhone 8 256GB.
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.
This is probably the best deal yet for an iPhone X in Malaysia. Lazada is currently running a limited-time promo where you can get the iPhone X 64GB with AirPods (worth RM849) for less than RM5,000. Overall, that’s lower than the RM5,149 retail price of the iPhone X 64GB model.
ASUS will be unveiling its ZenFone 5 smartphones at MWC 2018 and you can already tell that it will “borrow” some design elements from the iPhone X. One of the glaring features is its notch design for its full edge to edge display. If you’re wondering how it works on an Android-powered device, we now have a clear look at the notch.
A few days ago, a bug involving an Indian Telugu character was found to cause some serious problems for Apple users. It seems that iOS, watchOS and even macOS devices have trouble rendering this character and it causes the respective apps to crash.
It’s a critical bug since anyone with ill-intentions can send you a text with this character and you won’t be able to open your messaging app again as long as the character continues to be displayed. This even affects Facebook, Twitter and on any social platform that allows anyone to post this problematic character.
Due to the severity of this bug, Apple has finally released a fix and it’s available now to all iOS users with iOS 11.2.6.
Xiaomi will be announcing its latest mid-range smartphones, the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro, in India this afternoon. These are the successors of the current value for money, Redmi Note 4, and they are setting up the game with a Full Display (18:9) and a new dual-camera setup. After the launch of the iPhone X, the unmistakable vertical dual-camera bump is making its way to more Android phones and from the recent leaks, it appears that the Redmi Note 5 Pro will follow this same design.
Want to buy an iPhone X but don’t want to pay the full retail price? Lazada is offering a time-limited CNY sale offer where you can enjoy a total of RM739 in savings for an iPhone X + Case bundle.
