Google Pixel 2 XL

You’ve heard about it and it’s true – the Google Pixel 2 XL is arriving in Singapore very soon – 15 November to be exact. And yes, I have one for review. I’ve been getting a whole bunch of questions from friends, family; even strangers on the street about this Xtra-Large wonder – so i’ve decided to consolidate all that into a little Q&A for everyone to read. Here’s my thoughts.

Sony Xperia XZ1, XZ1 Compact & XA1 Plus Hands On!

By | Phones | No Comments

Sony just launched their latest Sony Xperia XZ1 (S$898) and Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact (S$668) flagships here and get this – their headline feature is making 3D scans. Yup – 3D scans of your head so you can turn yourself into a mini cute avatar or hot dancing hunk! It’s interesting, but feels a little gimmicky at this point of time. We want to see if we can use these 3D scanning files for more real world applications – such as compositing and editing in professional 3D tools from Adobe.

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.

HTC U11 Silver

Yep, you read it right. The HTC U11 is the world’s first squeezable phone. Squeeze for selfies, squeeze for Facebook, squeeze for music – just like squeezing a sponge. Although the U11 sounds like a odd gimmicky device at first glance, it is far from a one trick pony – this phone is HTC’s newest flagship phone and it packs a huge amount of power behind its shiny glass body. We were able to squeeze the the U11 to our heart’s content at HTC’s launch, and we think that it is quite a strong competitor to flagships such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and LG G6.
