What’s the point of a very fast network without anyone being able to log on to it?

Well, SingTel’s zippy 300Mbps mobile broadband service using the Long Term Evolution-Advanced (LTE-A) network technology now has a Huawei mobile router that hooks up users on the go.

Hailed as a “world first”, SingTel’s commercial launch of the enhanced 4G service yesterday came with Huawei’s E5786 mobile MiFi device, which creates a mobile hotspot to hook up phones, laptops and other devices.

The growing popularity of smartphones as portable gaming powerhouses has led to tough times for handheld consoles like the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo DS. Today, you can find a wide range of accessories meant to recreate the console gaming experience on a phone.

A Kickstarter-funded game controller from Hong Kong-based Phonejoy Solutions, the Phonejoy is one such accessory. It supports both iOS and Android devices as long as you download a companion app from the respective app stores.

Redmi Note_2

Like it or not, the first thing you have to bring up about the latest Xiaomi phone to turn up in Singapore is its price. At S$199, the Redmi Note is a no-brainer – it’s a phone that has people readily saying shuddup and take their money.

If Xiaomi and Huawei are two names that pop up when Singapore users are asked about mainland Chinese phone makers, then Oppo may well be the next manufacturer to join the list.

After a modest foray into Singapore with the N1 which featured a swivel camera (see our review), the company is back with the Find 7a, an updated, smaller model with a more familiar and pocketable size.

Huawei Ascend P7

If you think that Huawei’s new Ascend P7 smartphone looks familiar, you are right. It looks a bit like a cross between a Sony Xperia and Apple iPhone, and that’s not a bad thing.
