I am already 4 weeks into my hands-on with the latest LG G6, and it has impressed me. On the other hand, I have not received a review unit of the Samsung Galaxy S8 to give my hands-on opinion. But looking at the specs alone,…

LG V20 features ES9218 Hi-Fi 32-bit DAC from ESS, while LG G6 (selected regions) appears to use ES9218+ variant. The V20 comes with 3 AOP Mic while G6 only has 2 AOP. This means the G6 does not support directional mic, where I can adjust the…

LG Singapore has announced that that the LG G6 will retail from 14 April 2017 at S$988. Prior to the launch event, they have passed me a Korea Telecom (KT) retail unit (LGM-G600K) for an extensive first-look review. The pressure is great across the mobile…

One month after the unveil event at MWC 2017, Huawei Singapore promptly sent me a unit of the Huawei P10 Plus (VKY-L29) before the official launch event in Singapore. It feels privileged to be able to get a hands-on review with an almost-production-ready copy, so I’m…

The first LG V-series, V10, appeared in 2015 and got many consumers interested due to its second screen and rugged design, which includes water resistance and drop-proof. The new V20 launched late last year shed the claim to be element-proof, but added some likeable LG…

Sony has had a good history of producing great wireless speakers. With my previous reviews of the Sony SRS-X3, SRS-X33, SRS-X55 portable speakers, the Sony h.ear go SRS-HG1 somewhat falls flat, literally, in the audio quality. When playing music using flat setting, the treble is veiled, bass…

Sony’s NW-A26HN is an updated release to the earlier A15 which was given to me by Sony during a campaign last year. From the photo above, you can see that they are identical in exterior, with just a few differences: A20-series support built-in active noise…

My last year’s gift guide was quite popular, and so I’ve decided to do up another gift guide for this year. And like last year, all these products I recommend are personally reviewed (unless indicated otherwise). Prices indicated are recommended retail price, so the street price could…

  The Sony SBH54 reminds me of the good old Bluetooth headsets that Sony Ericsson made popular. A small receiver with control buttons and a mono display screen to show operational details. I am not sure if there are people who still uses such stuff,…

After experiencing the NWZ-A15 early this year, Sony recently launched the new A20 series with some hardware improvements and more colour choices. But the new A20 still does not support the 24-bit DSD file format. The ZX100, however, does. So I asked Sony Singapore for…
