ZenFone 4

If you think smartphone users on a budget had it good with Xiaomi’s entry into Singapore, there are now even more choices in the shape of Asus’ Zenfones, which come in not just one but three versions, and at prices from as low as S$120.

If you were tempted to buy the original Microsoft Surface RT, but held back, the updated Surface 2 is now even more tempting with a lighter frame, sharper screen and a number of other enhancements to match the impressive design.

Gold xiaomi earphones

Every once in a while, a gadget turns up to remind you that you have paid too much for something else just a short while ago, before the competition heated up.

Certainly, the Xiaomi Pistons earphones make me feel that way, just like how the Chinese electronics company has recently impressed with its budget wonder, the Redmi smartphone.

M8_3V

Rising as an early alternative to Apple’s touch-screen iPhones a few years ago, HTC has had a long history of association with Android. Starting with the HTC Magic, then the Google Nexus One, the company has always been a favourite with smartphone geeks.

The new HTC One, codenamed M8, is its latest effort at turning around a ho-hum couple of years which have seen the Taiwanese company lose much of its early Android mojo.

Like last year’s HTC One - the M7 – the new phone hopes to not just win awards from tech sites and garner great reviews, but also grab hold of some of that goodwill that consumers have placed on rivals such as Samsung.

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.

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

xiaomi_mi3_07

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.
