ASUS ZenPad 7.0 (Z370CG) Sneak Peek
     Wed, Aug 19 2015 | 6:33P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On the 14 of August 2015, we were invited to an exclusive media sneak peek of the upcoming ASUS ZenPad 7.0 (Z370CG) phablet. The Country Manager for Intel Malaysia and Singapore also joined us as the ASUS ZenPad 7.0 is the first mainstream device to sport the new quad-core Intel Atom x3 SoC, formerly known as SoFIA.

First Look Hands-On With ASUS ZenPad S 8.0 Z580CA
     Tue, Aug 18 2015 | 3:18P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS is on a roll these days, especially in mobile technologies. In the past few months, the company has surprised us all with the affordable and powerful ZenPhone 2 smartphone (which starts at a very frugal $200 off-contract) and the even cheaper ZenFone 2E which takes the prepaid route via AT&T. ASUS is again using its “Zen factor,” this time in the tablet space, with the introduction of its ZenPad S 8.0 Z580CA. And we’ve got a hands-on preview of the premium tablet for you today.

LUXA2 Thermaltake Mobile TX-P2 Wireless Power Bank
     Fri, Aug 14 2015 | 12:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In the last few years, one product category has quietly become one of the most important in our daily lives: portable power banks. Also referred to as USB battery packs, power banks provide our smartphones and other mobile devices with a much-needed midday charge. For the most part, you're stuck using a charging cable in tandem with a power bank, but what if you could cut the cord there too? The LUXA2 TX-P2 10,000mAh Wireless Power Bank lets you do that through the power of Qi. And it improves on its predecessor in just about every way."

VKWorld VK6735 Smartphone Review
     Sat, Aug 01 2015 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
VK6735 from VKWorld is another low-cost smartphone which is using the already established VK6735 SoC but at a lower frequency of 1GHz, while sporting the same ARM Mali-T720 GPU. We get 2GB of RAM for running more applications in the same time, 16GB of storage space with a single partition and the possibility to install a SD card makes things more interesting. The VK6735 is dual-SIM and features integrated 4G LTE WorldMode and CDMA2000 3G for global high-speed mobile network compatibility and is also equipped with a Sony 13MP shooter on the back while the selfie camera is 5MP. Of course, the VK6735 also comes with Android 5.1 release pre-installed which is the latest available for the current SoC.

Blackberry Passport Review - Size Can Be Deceiving, Sales Cannot
     Wed, Jul 29 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Blackberry Passport has been available for some nine months now and, contrary to initial predictions of failure due to its odd and rather large stature, it has prevailed. Not only has it found success, but also, its initial release experienced a 24 hour sell out of 200,000 units with supply and demand issues remaining even as we write this report…several months after release. It is popular. It is the most powerful smartphone on the market. It has an enormous HD screen. It is unlocked. Its battery lasts in excess of 24 hours and it is big. It is very big. It is the size of a Passport…who would have guessed?

Mlais M7 Smartphone Review
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 6:56P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Mlais M7 smartphone has given us an overall pleasant experience thanks to its high-quality build and system performance. Speaking about the performance, the MT6752 SoC is able to deliver quite a bit especially when it is paired with HD displays so we were able to score over 47K in AnTuTu. The total of 3GB of RAM helps running multiple applications while the included 16GB of internal storage should be enough for most people to install their favorite applications without the need to install an extra microSDHC card, at least in the first stage. The fingerprint sensor works decent and we were not able to fool it by trying other fingerprints in order to unlock the device, which is impressive.

LG G4 Smartphone Review
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every year, LG manages to impress me in one way or another with their new flagship Android smartphone. Whereas past models brought a near bezel-free design, great battery life, a crisp 1440p display and a laser-assisted autofocus system, this year with the LG G4, the focus is mostly on improving various aspects of the hardware, like the camera and display. It's an incremental update for sure but the results might prove impressive once again.

Samsung Galaxy S5
     Sat, Jul 18 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Though Qualcomm sold its own handset business to Kyocera in 1999, many of today’s most popular mobile devices are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon mobile chipsets with integrated CPU, GPU, DSP, multimedia CODECs, power management, baseband logic and more. In fact the typical “chipset” from Qualcomm encompasses up to 20 different chips of different functions besides just the main application processor. If you are an owner of a Galaxy Note 4, Motorola Droid Turbo, Nexus 6, or Samsung Galaxy S5, then you are most likely a user of one of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipsets.

The Intel Atom x3 (SoFIA) Debuts In The JOI Phone
     Sun, Jul 12 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We first covered the Intel Atom x3 SoC for mobile devices during the Intel Intelligent Generations 2015 event in May. Codenamed SoFIA, this Singapore-designed system-on-a-chip (SoC) has been powering affordable smartphones and phablets in the Chinese market. Now it has finally arrived in Malaysia in the guise of the JOI Phone 5 smartphone and the JOI 7 Lite phablet.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jul 11 2015 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While there seems to be an endless number of Android phones on the market, for those of you shopping for one this summer are most likely only going to be looking at just a few. The perennially popular Galaxy S lineup being at or near the top of that list. This year Samsung introduced the S6 with two models (and just recently announced a third), you can pick from the regular Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge. On top of wanting to see what the new Samsung phones had to offer, I also really wanted to take a closer look at the difference between the two phones. I spent a little time with the original S6 and then spent a bunch of time with the Edge to see what sets it apart and also to see what justifies its higher price point. So today I’m going to talk a little about my experience.

Asus ZenFone 2 Review: Excellent Android Value
     Wed, Jul 08 2015 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS ZenFone 2 is one of the more interesting devices to hit the HotHardware reviews desk in some time. We spent a bit of time previewing it earlier this month, and now we've assembled a full review after using it more regularly as our daily dialer. The higher-end model, which is what we're testing here, is available widely for just $299 unlocked.

Acer Liquid Jade S Smartphone Review
     Wed, Jul 08 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A little while ago we had a look at the Acer Liquid Jade – the first device in Acer’s Liquid Jade smartphone range. Today we are looking at the Liquid Jade S, the successor to the original Liquid Jade. With a new octa-core processor, and higher RRP to match, is it worth the additional investment?

Microsoft Surface 3 Review
     Tue, Jul 07 2015 | 4:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The full metal body of the Surface 3 makes it one of the best designed, most attractive Windows tablets on the market. Throw in great features like the three-position kickstand, the hidden microSD card slot, the full-sized USB port, the 3:2 display, and Microsoft has nailed the design of this tablet.

Samsung Galaxy S6 edge (SM-G925) Smartphone Review.
     Mon, Jul 06 2015 | 12:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since we received the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, we have been testing them out extensively in the field and even demoing it to everyone we meet.

Rollei CarDVR-120 GPS 1296p Car Camera Review
     Sat, Jun 27 2015 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Driver error is a phrase I’ve heard many times from people who tried with very little luck to convince police officers and insurance companies that they weren't responsible for car accidents. Unfortunately although technology has made it possible for everyone to have a tiny camcorder on the dashboard of their cars to avoid such issues not many decide to do so where i live but judging by the sheer number of people who are currently using such devices in large countries like the USA, Taiwan and Russia i suspect that it will not be long before this changes. Not too long ago the very first next generation 1296p (2304x1296/30fps) SuperHD/XHD Dashcam models were revealed and we had the chance to test the Marcus 3 by Vicovation which was quite good although we did feel that there was room for improvement. Today we will be taking a look at the SuperHD proposal by Rollei the CarDVR-120 GPS Car Camera.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha Review
     Sat, Jun 20 2015 | 4:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Galaxy Alpha accompanies the Galaxy S5 at the top of Samsung’s line-up. The 4.7-inch device is a smaller alternative to their popular flagship, designed for people who place form at the top of their priority list. Samsung seems to be realizing that cheap plastic just doesn’t cut it anymore for its flagship smartphones, but the choice to focus on design has also left the Alpha with slightly downgraded specs compared to the S5.
