Remember back in army days, you have the iNet computer which allows you to surf the Internet, and another OA computer which requires an ISAC Card to use? ST Electronics might have found a solution for this. The company’s BLACK Computer L100 will have split personalities. Meaning, you can switch between the untrusted Internet and your trusted corporate Intranet.

HTC U11 Unboxing & Hands On Review

By | All, Phones | No Comments

Although the HTC has produced mediocre phones over the past few years, they’ve knocked it out of the park with their flagship U11. This rivals the iPhone 8 – if you’re torn between Apple and Android, just get this. It’s got top of the line specs, a beautiful body, fantastic audio, great camera and a very nice form factor.

The programmable ‘edge sense’ squeeze function is extremely useful and better implemented than Samsung’s Bixby-only button. I hate that there’s no headphone jack and the body’s a super fingerprint magnet – battery life is so-so too. Still, i’d say that the HTC U11 performs better than 95% of the Android phones out there. It isn’t revolutionary like the S8, but it’s a wonderful incremental step. HTC sticks to a tried and true form factor and what works.

Moto Z2 Play Unboxing: The Gold Standard For Battery & Innovation

By | All, Phones | No Comments

The Moto Z2 Play’s modular system is awesome – you can attach batteries, wireless charging covers – even a camera with 10x optical zoom. It’s a midranger and doesn’t perform as great as the HTC U11 and Samsung Galaxy S8, but get this – the Moto Z2 Play’s battery life is SICK. The best we’ve seen. Lasts one and a half days or so with 8-10 hours of screen-on time. I left this with the battery mod on and got it to run Netflix with sound for 24 hours. S$799 for the phone, expect to spend about S$100 to S$200 for each mod. Not cheap, but definitely innovative and unique. Stay tuned for our in-depth review!
