    » Nowadays, you'd be hard pressed to walk five steps without overhearing someone gushing about their favourite BNK48 idol, or humming the band's indelible earworm Koisuru Fortune Cookie. The all-girl group has emerged as the pop sensation of the moment in Thailand.

    You pays your money

    » As monolithic a consumer-electronics brand as they are, Sony has always been content to compete in the mid-range smartphone market instead of going up against the big boys like Apple or Samsung. Mid-range android phones are a-dime-a-dozen these days, however, and the Sony Xperia XA1, the brand's latest mid-tier addition to their Xperia line (after the XA1 Ultra) has its work cut out for it if it wants to stand out.

    No longer the mainstream

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 03/03/2017

    » TrueVisions, the veteran cable TV service provider, in January sent viewers reeling after a decision to discontinue six major TV and film channels -- most notably those under the HBO brand. The company then announced plans to drop an additional 11 channels from its line-up just a month later and though the operator has replaced the cancelled channels with seven new ones, plus giving other incentives to its million-plus subscribers, the clamour has been audible.

    K6 Note fails to dazzle

    Business, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 11/02/2017

    » While enjoying moderate success in the laptop computer market, Lenovo has never been the most competitive brand when it comes to smartphones, generally offering devices in the low-to-mid-tier range. The K6 Note, the latest release in the brand's K6 series, which includes the ordinary K6 and the K6 Power, doesn't seem to buck the trend, coming with a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 and a measly maximum of 4GB of RAM, which makes the phone noticeably suffer when used for extended periods of time. The same can be said for the phone's ability to run relatively taxing apps or multitasking. This lack of power and a subpar 16MP camera makes the phone a tough sell, even at its affordable price of 8,990 baht.

    Best of the rest

    » The Motorola G4 Plus -- the latest device to join Motorola's Moto G line of smartphones -- is a heck of a good deal. With an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, a respectable 5.5-inch full-HD display and up to 64GB native storage (with up to 4GB RAM) that can be increased further with microSD support, it's almost too much to expect from a phone that costs a relatively low price of about 9,000 Baht. Slap on a decent and flexible 16MP back camera, a water resistant frame and a fingerprint scanner for added security, and the Motorola G4 Plus becomes an instant recommendation for anyone looking for an affordable smartphone without sacrificing any (noticeable amount of) power.

    » Last week we were at Samsung's Galaxy Studio, a special installation located on Orchard Road, Singapore, dedicated to showcasing the various new products coming soon to the Korean tech giant's line-up. The highlight, of course, was the brand's latest entry in its flagship Galaxy Note series of smartphones, the Galaxy Note 7.

    » With more than 30 million downloads in less than a month since its release, calling Pokemon Go a social phenomenon is hardly an overstatement. An augmented-reality mobile game (AR) released earlier this month in some regions, Pokemon Go has made daily headlines around the world ever since its launch.

    Envy-ous? Not really

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 11/05/2016

    » For a machine with a 6th Generation Intel dual-core i7 processor and 8GB RAM running on Windows 10, the HP Envy Notebook never quite managed to leave much of an impression on me. Despite its impressive specs, comfortable keyboard and sleek design, I still found using the notebook to be merely satisfactory at best, with enough performance glitches to hold it back from being an immediate recommendation. Those of you looking for a light, serviceable laptop computer for working on the go could find a lot to like in the machine, provided you can stomach the relatively hefty price.
