Well, you would know about the importance of having a reliable internet access in Turkey during your trip. Rent & Connect provides travelers with a mobile hotspot on rent, so that they can remain connected no matter where they are in Turkey.

Turkey Internet, anytime, anywhere, at an affordable cost.

The Importance of Staying Connected During Your Travels

Are you traveling to Turkey soon? You have to find a way to get reliable internet access throughout your trip, no matter where you are.

We live in the Internet Age; it is unthinkable for anyone to be without internet access for too long, especially when they are travelling.

You need the internet to keep in touch with your friends and family, know what’s happening in the world, and stay informed about the progress of an ongoing project back at your office.

That’s why you need reliable Turkey Internet during your journey.

Internet Access in Turkey for Travelers

Sure, you can get a Wi-Fi connection from a coffee shop in Istanbul, but as you know, public Wi-Fi is never safe and leaves you prone to hacking.

You can use your mobile’s cellular connection, of course, but what will do you about the roaming charges? They could be massive! Also, how can you make sure that there is no breakdown in the coverage?

That’s why for proper Turkey internet access during your trip, you should consider renting a Mobile Hotspot.

Turkey Internet: Renting a Mobile Hotspot in Turkey

Renting a mobile hotspot in Turkey is like having a temporary Wi-Fi with you during your travels. It’s convenient, simple and a great way to stay connected on the move.

What is a Mobile Hotspot and How Does It Work?

A mobile hotspot device is essentially a pocket-sized modem which connects to cellular towers and then re-transmits the signal in the form of a Wi-Fi network. You and the others in your travel group can connect with this Wi-Fi network anytime, anywhere.

As many as 5 to 10 devices can be connected at a time to a mobile hotspot. There is no need to get a new SIM card or to deal with any of the hassles related to getting an internet connection during a foreign trip. 

Rent A Mobile Hotspot and Stay Connected in Turkey

Rent & Connect provides Mobile Hotspots and highly convenient, fast and reliable Turkey Internet access to anyone travelling to Turkey. How does it work?

#1: Reserve your Mobile Hotspot device on our website for the dates you want it or for the entire duration of your holiday or business trip to Turkey.

#2: We will have the Mobile Hotspot delivered to your hotel, or at any location of your choice, before your arrival to Turkey.

Turkey Internet Speeds

According to the Internet Society, Turkey ranks 59th in the world at internet speed. The speed test data puts internet speeds in Turkey at 14.51 Mbps for download and 4.04 Mbps for upload in 2016.

Turkey Internet Providers

There are 6 or 7 leading internet providers in Turkey and about 30 regional internet providers. Most internet providers offer attractive packages to compete in a highly crowded marketplace. The average cost of an internet subscription is relatively low in Turkey.

Why Travel to Turkey?

Turkey is well known for its incredible natural beauty, friendly people, great cuisine, monuments of historical significance, diverse culture and heritage and much more.

Istanbul, the capital of Turkey, was once called as Constantinople, which for many hundred years was the most important city on the planet, bringing together different civilizations, connecting the East to the West.

It was through Turkey that the famous Silk Route that connected the ancient Kingdom of China to Europe, passed through. It is home to famous landmarks such as the Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia.

It’s no surprise that Turkey is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the world, attracting 32.4 million foreign tourists in 2007.

Samsonite’s Study Found That Despite The Stresses of Business Travel, Most Singapore Travellers Still Enjoy It.

Singapore, 12 September 2018: Business travellers in Singapore have rated Tokyo and Bangkok as their top business and leisure travel destinations, in an exclusive study conducted by YouGov for premium luggage brand Samsonite.

 

The survey found that Hong Kong is Singapore’s third-favourite business destination, while London ranked third for leisure travel. Mumbai, Bangalore and Jakarta were the least popular, according to more than 500 respondents who participated in the Smoother Journeys Survey. London and Tokyo tied for the top spot among business travellers below 34, while Tokyo was the top choice for those between 35 and 44, and those over 45 preferred Bangkok.

 

No. Favourite Business

Destinations

Least Favourite Business

Destinations

Favourite Leisure Destination
1 Tokyo 16% Mumbai 19% Tokyo 20%
2 Bangkok 14% Bangalore 14% Bangkok 18%
3 Hong Kong 12% Jakarta 13% London 10%
4 London 8% Hong Kong 7% Hong Kong 8%
5 New York City /

Shanghai

8% Shanghai 6% Melbourne 7%

 

 

The Smoother Journeys study was undertaken to find out what drives Singapore business travellers, as well as some of the things they liked – and didn’t like. Overall, Samsonite found that one in five (22 percent) of Singaporeans enjoy overseas business travel a lot, 30 percent like it a little, and 37 percent are ambivalent.

 

“The Smoother Journeys survey revealed some surprising insights,” said Satish Peerubandi, General Manager – Samsonite Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines & IndoChina. “For starters, we were surprised to see how strongly Asian cities did. We were also happy to see that a majority enjoyed business travel, even as it has a reputation for being tough for those who travel often. Only 11% of respondents said they did not enjoy business travel, with the majority liking it for the opportunities it brings.”

 

The Advantages of Business Travel

 

The study found that many Singapore business travellers enjoy the opportunity to visit new places (94%), leave Singapore for a short while (91%), and work in new environments (88%).

 

While 60 percent said they believe they travel “just the right amount”, many still crave for their home comforts. Being apart from family and the fear of missing out on what is happening at home topped the reasons for people disliking business travel, at 57 percent and 41 percent respectively.

 

How Business Travellers Manage Stress

 

Business travellers identified traffic jams, flight delays and airport transfers as the most significant stress creators. When it comes to things they have control over, factoring in downtime and more effective packing and luggage are essential, they said. The study found that those who enjoy business travel are also those who are more likely to undertake activities that will help alleviate stress.

 

Many also allow for time to go to the gym or to shop, while close to half said they like to plan time for meals with colleagues or friends.

 

For a significant majority, efficient and effective packing was seen as a critical method to help ease stress, while many said that having a proper bag with easy access to laptops and toiletries when passing through airport security would improve their experience.

 

Other Key Findings

 

  • Younger women are more likely to travel then younger men (46% vs 26%).
  • About half (52%) of business travellers spend an average of 3 to 4 days on business trips.
  • Four in five admitted to working on the plane for some part of the flight, while 35% of business travellers put their time in the skies to productive use by working either 50% of the time or more.
  • Looking professional while travelling for work is essential for Singapore’s business travellers. Fifty-three percent of travellers said they wore business attire while flying either half of the time or more, of which 75% said this was because they would go straight from the airport to work meetings.
  • The desire for style also extended to luggage, with 90% insisting that having professional products reflected positively on their appearance as businesspeople.
  • Sixty-four percent of business travellers said that professional and well-designed luggage can help make their business trips smoother, and 68% are willing to invest in this.

NETS Services Will be Available Outside Singapore For the First Time

Singapore consumers can now use the NETSPay app to make e-payments when they travel overseas; this is made possible through the joint partnership between NETS and global payment network UnionPay.

The enhanced NETSPay app comes with a new wallet feature that enables consumers to top up and pay for purchases at over 7.5 million UnionPay QR code merchants globally via QR codes. They can also make contactless payments using their near-field communication (NFC) enabled smartphones at close to 12 million UnionPay QuickPass contactless acceptance points without the need to use fiat foreign currencies when travelling.

The enhanced NETSPay app also offers a number of new features. In addition to overseas payments, users can send money to or receive money from other NETSPay users via mobile numbers or QR code. In addition, those looking to send gifts to family or friends can send e-angbaos (or electronic red packets) to their loved ones using the app. This is in addition to QR code payments in Singapore, including SG QR.

“This partnership between UnionPay and NETS is significant on several levels. First – the launch of the enhanced NETSPay app affirms our commitment to providing innovative payment products and services that can enable greater convenience and ease of payment for local consumers and businesses. Second – the enabling of NETSPay acceptance at UnionPay QR code merchants and UnionPay QuickPass contactless acceptance points around the world will allow local NETS users to make QR code and contactless payments everywhere they go, including at key destinations such as Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, South Korea and Thailand when they travel overseas,” said Wenhui Yang, General Manager for UnionPay International South East Asia.

Commending on the partnership, NETS Group CEO Jeffrey Goh shares, “Working with a leading global partner such as UnionPay is part of our efforts to make NETS services seamless for our Singapore consumers. Now whether you’re shopping in Shanghai or paying for your chicken rice at your favourite hawker stall in Singapore, all you need is NETSPay.”

 

Review of ASUS Zenfone 5 (2018) – A Good Budget Phone?

In the budget phone space, the idea of a “good” product varies as it really depends on customer’s perception of “good”.  Today, I am going to review ASUS Zenfone 5. I am going to share with you on my idea of a “good” budget phone. I have broken it down into the following which I think it may help you in deciding whether you should buy the ASUS Zenfone 5.

ASUS Zenfone 5

Simplicity

This is perhaps my most important criterion on budget phone. As a budget phone user, I don’t need sophisticated features. I just need a phone that works while at the same time, saves my credit card bills. The Android user interface (UI) should not be that different from the Android phones that I have used before. To put it simply, the UI of the budget phone should look just like a stock Android.

 

Back to our topic on ASUS Zenfone 5, the phone deserves a thumbs-up. The ZenUI 5 of Zenfone 5 is almost identical to stock android. I have no problem familiarising the interface. I can locate the contact and phone app easily. Setting up is extremely easy as you could easily by-pass the FaceID and fingerprint setup. (Yes, I really don’t think these are important features for a budget phone).

 

I am not a photo-person but as we are communicating more on social networks these days, camera plays an important part of your entire smartphone experience.  We all love to shoot beautiful photos. The AI camera of Zenfone 5 detects and automatically adjust the image setting to make stunting-looking photos.

 

I have put up some of my photos shot by Zenfone 5 in Europe. I don’t think the image quality is perfect but there are good enough for me to share on my social networks.

Sample Shot by ASUS Zenfone 5

What needs to be there should be there

The Zenfone 5 is equipped with 3.5mm audio jack

Ironically, phone makers are trying to remove some standard features as part of their new product offerings I don’t think that’s the right way (at least for budget phones). Fortunately, the Zenfone 5 is equipped with USB Type C and 3.5mm audio jack (3.5mm audio jack is not a standard feature for some phones).

 

A battery that could last you for a whole day. The ASUS Zenfone 5 is packed with 3,300 mAh which is not too bad considering some flagship phones in 2018 may offer even less than that.

 

Price

Value vs Money – the game of the budget phone maker. The ASUS Zenfone 5 is selling at SGD 488 which is not exactly attractive (at least to me). At that price range, I could be looking other alternatives from Xiaomi.

 

Verdict

I must say ASUS has come a long way. The ZenUI has improved a lot since they launched their first phone. It is very easy to navigate within the phone. The camera is up-to-mark and it serves my social media needs

 

Front camera and the notch of Zenfone 5

In general, almost everything about this phone seems to hit the right spot. Its price at SGD 488 is kind of turn-off. Although the Zenfone 5 has packed with features that you could find in the premium phones like the face unlock, that is not necessary for most users. As a budget phone user myself, I will rather have this feature removed in exchange for a lower price.

 

Despite it is a good product, my advice is to wait for a better discount which I believe it should be happening soon as ASUS is releasing newer models.

Swedish Bedmaker is Making Wave in Asia

Bed is probably one of the most personal items that one used for years. For most people, this is not the understatement. We heard people complaining that they can’t sleep well in the hotel because the beds are not as comfy as their own ones. This could also be the main reason why people spend months shopping for their ideal beds. Afterall, it is not a cheap item and people definitely put in more thoughts when comes to finding their beds.

 

A post shared by Neo Wee Wu 梁威武 (@weewu) on

“Is there one bed in the market that cater to all?”

YouBed, a Swedish startup, creates a bed that could be personalized to individual’s needs. YouBed claims that they have created the world’s first and only bed that provides adjustable firmness without compromising comfort features.

YouBed

We have the opportunity to speak to Mr Mattias Sörensen, CEO and Founder of YouBed who was exhibiting their products at Singapore’s Food and Hotel Asia 2018. When asked about the strategies in penetrating the market, Mr Mattias is clear that hotel operator is the strategic partner for YouBed.

“This might sound too good to be true, but our invention is so groundbreaking it will probaly change the hotel industry at its core” says Mr Mattias.

Full Control the firmness from the shoulder to the back.

The one-bed-fits-all innovation is already making fast success across Europe, where for example Mövenpick Hotel & Resort has installed YouBed in all of their European hotels. Singapore is YouBed’s first stop in Asia. Business Sweden (The Swedish Trade & Invest Council) have identified YouBed as a prioritized trade interest and will support the company in finding the most suitable hotel brand to introduce the innovation in Singapore and the region.

 

 

Samsung Singapore Launches Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. introduces the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ this month. The new phones are redesigned with a new Dual Aperture lens that powers an innovative low light camera, Super Slow-mo video capabilities and personalized AR Emoji.

Samsung unveil Galaxy S9 and S9+

First Impression – What’s New in Galaxy S9 and S9+ compared to S8 and S8+?

In terms of hardware, the most notable difference is the overall dimension and weight. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ is slightly shorter  and wider than its predecessor making the device looks less elongated.

The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are also slightly thicker and heavier than the S8 and S8+. (S9/S9+ is 8.5mm thick and weighs 163g and 189g respectively, S8/S8+ is 8.0mm thick and weights 155g and 173g) . This is probably due to the new Super Speed Dual Pixel 12MP AF camera sensor with OIS (F1.5/F2.4) used in the Galaxy S9 and S9+. Despite the slight difference in the overall dimension, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ shared the same display size of the Galaxy S8 and S8+.

The camera, which is the main selling point of this year’s Galaxy S9 and S9+, is packed with Samsung’s Dual Aperture (F1.5 / F2.4) that automatically lets in more light under low-light condition. Like Sony’s Xperia range of smartphones, Samsung has included Super Slow-mo features in Galaxy S9 and S9+ to allow users to take dramatic slow-motion video.

Having packed with new enhancement in Galaxy S9 and S9+, faster processors (10nm, 64-bit, Octa-core processor (2.7 GHz Quad + 1.7 GHz Quad) 10nm, 64-bit, and Octa-core processor (2.8 GHz Quad + 1.7 GHz Quad) respectively ) are used to power the devices.

Samsung adds AR Emoji in Galaxy S9 and S9+ which allows users to create an emoji that looks, sounds and acts like them. AR Emoji analyzes a 2D image of the user and maps out more than 100 facial features to create a 3D model that reflects and imitates expressions, like winks and nods, for true personalization.

 

Overall, my first impression on Galaxy S9 and S9+ – the phone looks and feels like the Galaxy S8 and S8+. Comparing the specifications, slight enhancement made in Galaxy S9 and S9+ may not attract consumers. Nonetheless, first impression may not do any justice to Samsung.

Price and Availability

The Galaxy S9 (64GB) is selling at SGD 1,198 whereas Galaxy S9+ is selling at SGD 1,348 (64GB)/SGD 1,498 (256GB). Pre-order commerce from 1 March 2018, Thursday 12pm.

Malaysian co-working space Colony offers RM10,000 in referral fees for new hires

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA – Media OutReach – Feb 5, 2018 – In another sign of the battle for scarce talent in Malaysia, Colony Co-Working Space is offering RM10,000 in referral fees for each successful hire the company makes. This is supported by the growing demands the Company has in its aggressive expansion plans in the coming years.  The referral fees will be paid out to anyone who recommends a candidate to the company who is hired and is confirmed after the probationary period.

 

The Company that counts Maybank, Microsoft, and AIA among its customers have plans to expand to at least 4 more locations this year, is actively recruiting for Community Managers, Sales Representatives, and Project Managers. Service is a crucial part of the company’s identity as Colony places a strong emphasis on hospitality, ensuring the happiness of its tenants, and having a team that knows how to go above and beyond.

 

“At Colony, we believe that our success lies in our ability to revolutionise our guests working experience, which ultimately comes down to the people we have working both behind the scenes and at the front of the office day-in and day-out. Getting talented and passionate individuals who fit our culture has always been a core focus for us, which is why we’re excited about this initiative to help us find the best people who will drive Colony’s success going forward.”Colony Co-Founder and Executive Director, Timothy Tiah

 

A recent study by TalentCorp and the Institute of Labour Market Information and Analysis (ILMIA) found that two of the biggest difficulties that companies faced in filling up critical positions were that the candidates did not possess the required technical experiences, or possess a satisfactory level of soft and interpersonal skills. According to recruitment expert, Hays, these struggles account for 97% of employers. Despite the Malaysian workforce becoming increasingly educated over recent years, and the size of the labour force with tertiary education growing to 4.1 million, the lagging number of employed persons in high-skilled occupations of 3.9 million indicates that a significant skills gap still exists in the labour market today.

Colony will be introducing this initiative for a period of one month, and in the event that it is successful, the company is prepared to look into extending the offer once again in the future. 

 

About Colony
Colony is a luxurious co-working space founded in July 2017. With the ambition of challenging the conventional concept of office, Colony touts facilities such as nap rooms, kids areas, gym, swimming pool and Espressolab Coffee within its spaces. The company is backed by Oak Drive Ventures and a number of Family Offices from around the region and is among the leading co-working spaces in Malaysia. www.colony.work

Review of Gaston Luga Backpack – A Perfect Valentine’s Day Gift!

With Valentine’s day coming up in 2 weeks’ time, many of you will be pondering over what you can get for your significant other. How about something both practical and stylish at the same time? You will be hard-pressed to find a better gift option than one of the lovely backpacks from Gaston Luga.

 

Gaston Luga’s bags scream minimalist chic. The founder, Carl Sundqvist, had the vision to make a line of bags with Scandinavian minimalism (shout out to all IKEA fans!) and elegance to suit all different occasions. This vision is definitely realised in each and every product that Gaston Luga offers.

Poisonvine and her Classy Backpack

For those with “wanderlust gene”, you will be pleased to know that Gaston Luga have a variety of tags to match with how you feel and showcase who you are. But the most outstanding feature that really resonates with us is their passport and travel ticket pocket. Important travel documents should be easily accessible and at the same time safely kept. So Gaston Luga designed a special pocket with a beautiful leather detail on the back. This means that the important stuff are kept close to the body and becomes impossible to be pickpocketed, and yet you can easily access them when passing through various checkpoints while travelling. Honestly, this should become a standard for all backpacks to follow.

 

We believe the pictures will speak for themselves. It is hard for us to imagine someone not liking the design of these bags.

This is how you keep your passport in Gaston Luga Backpack!

The Clässic range has a capacity of 15L and an inner compartment which can fit a 13-15” laptop. The Pråper range (not pictured) has a capacity of 18L and also an inner compartment which can fit a 13-15” laptop. The Clässy range (which is a slimmer Pråper) has a capacity of 13L and the inner compartment can fit a 13” laptop.

 

All the bags are made with thick and strong cotton for durability. It is also noteworthy that the bags use vegan leather, so you can rest easy knowing your purchase is cruelty-free.

Some people still prefer the classic looks.

A little extra perk for you: when you order from outside the EU, the Swedish VAT will be deducted from the listed price (i.e 20% tax rebate on the listed price) so you are paying less than what you see on the website. There is free shipping globally by DHL express so you can definitely get the bags in time for that special occasion. Furthermore, you can get another 15% discount on the VAT-free price with our quote “NEODIMENSION”. (Effectively, this blog is giving you more than 30% discount!)

Interview with Regional Director (South Asia Pacific), Unity Technologies – Mr Quentin Staes-Polet

Everybody is into VR now and it is evident that this sector has grown tremendously in 2017. All the tech giants are increasingly investing more into this space and people are watching this closely for the next breakthrough.

 

But will this trend going to continue in 2018? Today, we have Mr Quentin Staes-Polet, Regional Director, South Asia Pacific Unity Technologies to share with us his view on South East Asia market.

 

What business Unity Technologies (“Unity”) is in and the strategic goals that it hopes to achieve in this S.E.A region?  

Unity Technologies is the creator of a flexible and high-performance end-to-end development platform used to create rich interactive 2D, 3D, VR and AR experiences.

 

70 percent of all VR/AR content today is created with Unity and we are also working with the world’s biggest players in the world like Facebook, Microsoft, Xiaomi and Samsung to develop VR/AR content for their platforms. Although Unity was born from the gaming space with about 50 percent market share in the mobile games market, it is now being used across several industries outside gaming itself, a testament to the growing success of Unity as a creative platform.

 

Unity aims to “gamify” industries by making game technology, design and methodology, accessible to users beyond gaming – bringing the concept of games into industries by creating more engaging, more immersive experiences for customers and employees alike. That involves applying all that AR/VR can offer to make businesses more innovative, effective, and efficient. Ultimately, this technology can bring them much closer to their customers.

 

We enable anyone and everyone to develop games or applications. We do this through solving hard problems, such as the coding and scripting elements of development, so that today’s creators don’t have to. They can be freed from the worry of complicated back-end processes and focus on building beautiful and creative designs and experiences in their work.


You have built a successful business before. What’s in Unity that wants you to go back to the corporate life?

The game industry is where art and technology meet and interact with each other, which is why I was interested in joining the industry. Gaming continues to be one of the most creative industries and has been fast to adopt and leverage new technologies in engaging ways. Community tools like video conferencing, blogging, and online streaming were all leveraged on early in the industry. Even now, many new technologies are finding their first mass implementations in gaming, resulting in the industry constantly being invigorated, which is always exciting to me.

 

What are your personal goals you wish to or have already achieved in Unity?

When first joining Unity, I wanted to help lay the foundations and build a dedicated team of high performers who possessed a drive for excellence and fun. This has been successful so far with the team here in SAPAC, albeit at a small scale, and I am looking forward to building on this success moving forward.


So far, what’s the most challenging problem you have faced in South East Asia?
Given how young the developer scene is in the region, there has been a recruitment challenge due to the scarcity of experienced talent with the set of skills that Unity is looking for. However, given how the scene is growing exponentially, largely due to the rising interest in games and development from youth within the region, I expect it will only be a matter of time before this challenge is overcome.


Any details of the expansion plan in Singapore?
As one of the strongest economies in the Asia Pacific, Singapore has a huge market potential for the AR and VR technology. While Unity is still used largely for gaming, we are already seeing game technologies being increasingly used across several sectors, from the likes of architectural visualization, film and entertainment, engineering and manufacturing companies, as well as the government sectors.

 

We are always interested to see how others use our technology and other advances, especially within government organisations and smaller tech startups. We have been supporting them wherever we can, especially in the areas of education and training. We have already partnered with some organisations to help build a solid foundation of developers to support the growing industry here, and continue to move forward with helping further build the development ecosystem here where we can.

Review of Huawei Mate 10 Pro – QnA with Singapore Blogger – Chester Tan

Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro have been appearing in the news frequently and they are certainly one of the most sought-after phones in 2017.

Before we round up this year, The Neo Dimension would like to do a review for the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. If you have been following our blog closely, it has been a while since we have done a review on smartphone. This time, we are doing a little different from usual.  We manage to interview a prominent blogger in Singapore, Mr Chester Tan (CT) to share with us more about how he feels about Huawei’s latest Mate 10 Pro.

Q1:  What’s your impression when you first touch the Huawei Mate 10 Pro?

CT: It feels solid, does not have the sleek feminine curves like the P10 series.

Q2:  What did you use the phone for? What’s the best feature of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro?

CT: Throughout the 10 days, I use it as a primary phone, transferring all data from my current phone and installing my apps. The best feature that makes Mate 10 Pro stands out has got to be the EMUI Desktop. The camera is superb but is an incremental upgrade from the P10 series.

Q3: Everybody is talking good stuff about the camera? Is it really that good? Tell me more on your photography experience with the phone

CT: The camera captures images quickly without lag, the exposure is well compensated so there is little post-adjustments. I rarely use the monochrome mode because I prefer to shoot in colour then process in black-white. The best mode to shoot is the wide aperture mode, as it achieves the unique shallow depth of field which can be easily adjusted post-shooting. What I like is that adjustment is really fast and not cumbersome, something that other brands fail to achieve.

 

Q4: Personally, I have yet to hear bad reviews on the phone. Is there any specific area that you think Huawei could have done better?

 

CT: I think Huawei needs to continue to reach out to the consumers to give them a chance to experience the phone, to convince them that it is an excellent product. Unlike bloggers, these consumers do not have the luxury of testing the phones at lengths. Among their peers, someone must be using a Huawei phone who will spread the good word about the phone, then others will give it a go.

 

Q5: Out of 5, what score will you give to Huawei Mate 10 Pro?

CT: I give 4.5.
