LG G5 Review

LG G5 Review

Another year, another LG flagship phone. I reviewed the LG G4 around the same time last year and was left impressed by how much Android phones (especially the G4) have improved over the years. Till today, the G4 is still regarded as one of the best Android phone in the market. This year, LG announced the G5 with much fanfare at the Mobile World Congress for a good reason: the mobile industry hasn’t seen a phone quite like the G5 for a long time. Besides the usual sleek body and powerful…

Xiaomi soars to new heights with it first Mi Drone

Xiaomi – the Chinese smartphone giant – has been teasing its drone announcement for weeks. Today, the company finally introduces its first quad-copter, the Mi Drone. Design-wise, the Mi Drone looks very similar to the DJI’s Phantom series of drones. It will come in two variants; a HD 1080p version for S$525 (2,499 yuan) and a 4K version for S$630 (2,999 yuan). The Mi Drone has a detachable 3-axis gimbal, equipped with a Sony 12.4 megapixel camera. The 1080p cam shoots in 1920 x 1080 p resolution at 60fps while the 4K cam shoots…

Pebble renews its focus on health with the Pebble 2, Time 2 and all-new Pebble Core

Pebble renews its focus on health with the Pebble 2, Time 2 and all-new Pebble Core

Pebble was once quite the Kickstarter darling with the original Pebble being the most funded project, raising more than US$20 million to date. Its successor – the Pebble Time – unfortunately was too little too late when it was launched in 3 years later in 2015. 2015 was also the year where Android phone makers began introducing their versions of Android Wear Watches and then there was the Apple Watch. I reviewed the Pebble Time previous and found that it just didn’t have what it takes to compete with its…

Instagram changes logo to reflect its growth

Instagram changes logo to reflect its growth

Instagram has came a long way since the app was first created 6 years ago. What began as an app to edit and share photos with filters has transformed into a social network with over 300 million active users. Over the years, Instagram iconic retro brown polaroid camera icon with rainbow stripes became instantly recognizable and yet the same time feels a little dated. After adding millions of new users and accepting a billion dollar buyout by Facebook, Instagram needed a new look to keep up with its evolution. In a…

Circles.Life is the 4th Telco you never knew we had

Circles.Life is the 4th Telco you never knew we had

How did Circles.Life became the 4th telco in Singapore with so little fanfare? After all, didn’t MyRepublic launch a nationwide mobility campaign to garner support for their bid to be Singapore’s 4th telco? Well, besides the fact that its logo looks like a brand of contact lens Circles.Life isn’t technically Singapore’s 4th telco you see. While MyRepublic has to bid for their own operating license, spectrum bandwidth and build their own network infrastructure (thus needing a way longer lead time), Circles.Life is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator which is currently…

Marge Plus Apple Watch Bands Review

Marge Plus Apple Watch Bands Review

I have had the Apple Watch Sport edition since the day it was released and would put it on as and when I remember to. I have never thought of purchasing additional bands as there were no need to and that the official Apple Watch Bands are severely overpriced (price range from $78 for the basic woven nylon to $1,060 for the fancy Hermès Cuff Strap)! Well, not until i heard of Marge Plus’ 3rd party Apple Watch bands! Marge Plus has the highest rating (for both number of reviews…
