Unveiled in New York just minutes ago, HTC’s newest flagship phone – the new One – is the much-anticipated follow-up to last year’s similarly-named Android gadget from the Taiwanese phone maker.

In keeping with the familiar, it hopes to retain fans of that stunning phone (see our review of 2013′s HTC One), while improving several areas to enhance user experience.

If I reviewed the TomTom Runner GPS watch based only on how fast it made me run, it would score top marks. With this sports watch strapped to my wrist one afternoon, I ran like no tomorrow, clocking a speed I had not seen in years.

Sing when you’re winning, they say. Certainly Samsung is sticking to the same tune, when you see how it has barely altered anything in its latest Galaxy S5.

If last year’s Galaxy S4 seemed like a repeat of the same formula that has propelled the company to the number one spot in recent years, then 2014′s flagship phone will give you an even deeper sense of deja vu.

When tens of thousands of athletes, fans, media, officials and volunteers descended on Sochi for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games last month, the organisers faced a considerable challenge: to ensure a reliable and efficient network experience to match a world-class event.

It took 18 months leading up to the event for network equipment vendor Avaya to develop and deploy 2,500 wireless access points across all venues, including Olympic Villages, competition venues, data centres and more.

Goondu review: Xiaomi Mi3 still good value, but can do with more polish

Like its first foray into Singapore through the budget Redmi phone, Xiaomi’s high-end Mi3 comes packed with features at a very reasonable price. The much-awaited S$419 phone, however, doesn’t seem to punch as hard as its smaller, cheaper sibling when it comes to being a giant killer.

G Pro 2_Slanted right

LG’s new top-end phone, the G Pro 2, will be out in Singapore by the end of March, with the promise a huge screen and improved camera.

Unveiled at the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona last month, the Android phone sports a giant 5.9-inch full HD screen – one of the largest for a smartphone. It also touts much better multi-tasking, similar to what fellow Korean manufacturer Samsung is offering in some of its Android tablets.
