Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Review: Third Time’s the Charm

Xiaomi’s Redmi Note series has always been a great choice if you are looking for a budget friendly phablet.

The Redmi Note 3 is Xiaomi’s third attempt so we are going to find out if the Redmi Note series has finally matured or not.

Huawei Honor 5X Review: Solid Midrange Phone with Premium Features

Honor 5X is a midrange phablet offered by Huawei’s sub-brand, Honor. Priced at RM899, I actually wonder if it is fair to call it a midrange device, given that the price is not high as compared to other midrange devices from other major manufacturers. The longer I used it, the better I understood that this phone is not a typical budget device which comes with a lot of compromises to keep the price down.

Surface 3 On Windows 10 Review: The Tablet for Every Situation

The Surface 3 was launched in May 2015 by Microsoft and is the successor for the Surface 2.  It is a 2-in-1 tablet still designed for portability. It does well with lightweight work but its not really something to consider if you need to do graphics intensive work on it. It is smaller and less powerful than its Surface Pro brothers but still marketed by Microsoft as a tablet that can replace your laptop. So the big question is it a worthy alternative to many other tablet choices out in the market such as the iPad? Or even in general laptops for that matter?

For this review, we’ll be using the full experience available for the Surface 3 minus the dock, which is using the type cover and Surface 3 Pen. The Surface 3 we received is running Windows 10 which was upgraded from Windows 8.1. This marks that Microsoft is giving priority to the desktop experience while maintaining the mobile features available. This is reflected in Windows 10’s Continuum, where Tablet Mode is the replacement for Windows 8.1’s mobile style of user interface design.

ASUS ZenFone 2 Review: Budget Friendly Power Phone

Since 2014 we have a lot of devices which are affordable, yet capable enough to give the flagship phones a run for their money. ASUS is one of the player you simply couldn’t ignore in the so-called flagship killers with the introduction of their ZenFone 2. While the low price is one of the attractions, being the first phone to carry 4GB of RAM allows the ZenFone to steal a fair share of spotlight from other devices launched earlier this year. It has been months since the ZenFone 2 was launched but is it still good enough? Well, we are here to answer that question.

There are a few phones which carry the “ZenFone 2” name to we would like to clarify that the unit we are reviewing is the ASUS ZenFone 2 ZE551ML, which packs 32GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM. There are a lot of variants of ZenFone 2 out there with different processors, display and memory size. I really think that the weird naming scheme will bring a lot of confusions to average consumers and I still don’t get the reason behind it.

Lumia 640 Full Review: The Affordable Jack of All Trades

Lumia 640 was introduced earlier this year, along with Lumia 640 XL, its bigger brother. Their introduction shows Microsoft’s strategy in focusing on the budget phone market.

I have used the Lumia 640 for 2 weeks and here are my thoughts on it.
