Nokia-Lumia-930-Photo1

The Nokia Lumia 930 is the first mobile device to be out after Microsoft’s confirmed purchase of the Finnish cellphone maker in April this year.

Inevitably, all eyes are on it. Big question is whether it can change the game for Microsoft, which has been lagging in the smartphone game.

For frequent runners who like music on the go, one thing that has been missing is a sturdy pair of Bluetooth earphones to go with a smartphone or iPod. The Jabra Rox Wireless, released here in April, probably comes closest to fitting the bill.

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.

I had heard of Fiio’s well-regarded and nicely-priced X3 player for a while now, but nothing quite prepared me for the surprisingly good audio that comes out of this portable player until I heard it for myself in the past week.

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.

Leica T - Silver - Lenses

Carved out from a block of aluminium, the Audi-designed Leica T is one sexy and sleek camera that can be said to be the Miss Universe of the mirrorless cameras. From the company famous for its rangefinder cameras, the T certainly has brought the mirrorless market a notch up.

It may not be the sexiest laptop around, but if you want to carry around the sharpest screen, then Toshiba’s latest Satellite P50t is one machine worth checking out for its attractive 4K display.

Featuring four times the detail of a regular Full HD display, the laptop’s 15.6-inch screen is capable of showing off an eye-popping 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. That means text is extremely crisp and high-resolution photos are stunningly detailed.

Finally, a Super AMOLED screen in a large Samsung tablet. Fans of the bright, vibrant display will jump at the Galaxy Tab S, the “flagship” tablet from the Korean electronics manufacturer unveiled a fortnight ago.

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.

In its ads, Microsoft has been saying its new Surface Pro 3 tablet cum laptop can take the place of your current carry-around PC. After trying it out yesterday at a Singapore media event, I can say it lives up to its boast – mostly.
