Over the course of the last 2 months or so, we saw smartphones coming and going as usual. However, there are two smartphones in particular that stood out - the Honor Play and also the brand new Xiaomi Pocophone F1. The main question that got thrown around is always the same - why are they so cheap?
After Computex 2018, I published an article with a similar title. In summary for that article, we covered Computex 2018 by using two smartphones - one performer and another heavy-lifter.

Ever since I reviewed the first ever ASUS ROG Gladius from more than 2 years ago, I fell in love with that mouse. I loved the shape, the functionality, and the grip of that mouse. It's a really great mouse and has been with me since the day I first laid my hands on it. Over the years, the scroll wheel started having issues.
OTG cables are fantastic little accessories to have at all times. They're not widely available, and not widely known too, for that matter. This little OTG cable converts your whatever device with USB-A headers to USB-C or micro-USB. they're available in quite a lot of different shapes, lengths, and designs, actually.
