Here comes the major flagship smartphone from Huawei - the P20. It was launched at Paris at the end of March, and was launched in Malaysian market about a week after that. And a few days after, we actually got a hold of the brand new Huawei P20.
On the 6th of March 2018, Honor held an event to officiate the Honor 9 Lite in the Malaysian market. It was quite a different approach compared to other brands that we've seen as Honor partners with fashion brands. However, we're here to solely focus on the Honor 9 Lite itself.
The Samsung Galaxy S9. It's finally here - and Samsung claims that they have reimagined the camera. Since it is a brand new generation of flagship smartphone by Samsung, they've equipped the new Galaxy S9 with the latest and greatest hardware and software, too. Featuring nifty features like variable aperture and quirky ones like AR emoji, the Galaxy S9 has something for everyone.
Neffos just released another entry-level smartphone by the model name of C7. Neffos is no stranger to entry-level smartphones as they've recently announced a repricing of their existing lineup of smartphones to be below RM900. Now, they're back with the Neffos C7 - a RM599 smartphone.
About a month ago, we got the exclusive first look at the upcoming flagship smartphone from Neffos - the N1. There, we laid our hands on the Neffos N1 and has been using it ever since. What do we think about it? Find out in our full in-depth review of the Neffos N1 here.
ASUS has been releasing their smartphones under the ZenFone brand name for quite some time now. We've all came to know ASUS through their phones in the past through their smartphones in the market. On August of 2017, ASUS announced the ZenFone 4 in Taipei, Taiwan. During that event, ASUS told us that their flagship will be the Selfie Pro that we reviewed here. I personally think that's an illegitimate heir - but will the ZenFone 4 be the real heir?
Xiaomi has been making smartphones for quite some time already - but they started off with a custom ROM called MIUI. Over the years, they've evolved into a smartphone company and became what it is today. Though over the years, Xiaomi still continues their renowned lineup of budget smartphones - the Redmi series. As 2017 was the year where longer displays emerged, Xiaomi hopped onto the bandwagon with their latest Redmi 5 Plus - and we got our hands on one for review!
Since the release of the Galaxy S8 and S8+ (which we reviewed here), every other smartphone brands out there has been latching onto the latest trend - longer screen. Though, instead of following Samsung's aspect ratio of 18.5:9, other smartphones opted for an 18:9 aspect ratio, which is empirically 2:1, also known as "FullView display" now. ASUS opted for more than just having a 2:1 screen for the ZenFone Max Plus M1.
Over the past few months, OPPO has been pretty silent with their smartphone releases. For some reason, the OPPO R11 was not brought to the Malaysian market - and never will be. Then, I looked at the RM1.2k market segment of smartphones and realized - last year, there was the OPPO F1s that we've reviewed here. It's a decent phone at that price. A little more than a year later, the new OPPO F5 was announced. Just how well does the brand new OPPO F5 perform, and is it worth your price?
