    Beauty but a beast

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 30/08/2019

    » Smartphones are now the bane of our existence. We can't go anywhere or do anything without it, and most of us probably start wheezing and choking the minute our phones run out of juice or we realise we forgot it at home -- or worse yet, forgot it somewhere we don't remember. Our need for smartphones is evident in the fact that there is a plethora of smartphones to choose from and the endless stream of new models coming out. And into this stream comes Samsung's Galaxy Note 10+, their latest top-tier model which boasts high specs, high performance and a sleek, elegant design that's a total eye-candy. But new releases are nothing new, and with the lack of innovation smartphones are being plagued with nowadays, is the Galaxy Note 10+ any different?

    The galaxy could be yours

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 05/04/2019

    » Samsung, the world's number one smartphone distributor, has yet again expanded its choices for its consumers with the release of the Galaxy S10+ and the Galaxy A50. Released as their new top and mid-tier models respectively, Samsung is keen on keeping its market dominance as well as enticing smartphone buyers -- and perhaps even converting those loyal to other brands -- to give them a try. But will these two new phones compel customers to dish out the cash?

    Alright, Alright, Alright

    » The Nokia 6 is the latest model from the Finnish company that's putting them back in the smartphone game. While this is their latest model, it's not as advanced as their top-tier Nokia 8 (duh), which we previously reviewed. The Nokia 6 is the company's entry to mid-range smartphones, and if you're considering buying one, we think it's an option aside from the usual big name smartphones out there.

    Taking on the big boys

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 14/06/2017

    » In recent years, Chinese smartphone brands like Huawei and Oppo have enjoyed a great surge in popularity and positive consumer impressions, blending decent performance with relatively attractive prices. They can't exactly put up a realistic fight against the biggest boys on the block just yet, but they're getting there fast.

    You pays your money

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 17/05/2017

    » 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.

    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.

    Perfectly impractical

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 20/01/2016

    » When it comes to smartphones, Sony is hardly considered among the "big boys" of the industry like Samsung or Apple. Approaching Sony's latest flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z5 Premium, I was sceptical at first. While the newest model in Sony's Xperia line proves to be a huge step in the right direction -- with an impressive 23MP back camera, 5.5-inch 4K resolution display and even workable water, plus fall-proof technology -- there are still plenty of caveats to the device that holds it back from standing toe-to-toe with the likes of Samsung's Galaxy S line or Apple's iPhones, despite the similar price tag.
