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.

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.

Joint Review of Sudio Tre by The Neo Dimension and Poisonvine

For those who are reading my blog for the first time, you may be surprised to learn that this is actually the third time that The Neo Dimension is reviewing Sudio’s personal audio products. So far, the readers’ feedback regarding the last two reviews (Sudio Vasa Bla and Sudio Regent) have been positive. Some mentioned that they really enjoyed the interview that we have done with Poisonvine.com. There’s no snobby audio jargon, just a showcase of the product from a real user’s perspective. In addition, some of our male readers expressed that they liked reading a review from a female’s perspective. (Okay, we are a male-centric blog but hey, we do have posts that are family-oriented.)

If you haven’t already read our previous reviews, here are the links:

Sudio Vasa Blahttp://theneodimension.com/review-15-discount-code-sudio-vasa-bla-classy-device-busy-professionals/

Sudio Regent http://theneodimension.com/poisonvine-coms-review-sudio-regent-wireless-headphones/

Today, we are inviting Poisonvine.com to take part in a joint review on Sudio’s latest offering – Sudio Tre, their first water-resistant wireless earpiece. This time round, we have designed a set of questions that will be posted to both Poisonvine.com (P) and owner of TheNeoDimesion (TND). The objective is to allow our readers to look at Sudio Tre from a male’s as well as from a female’s perspective.

Without further ado, below is the Q&A. Check it out!

Q1. What’s your first impression when you unboxed the Sudio Tre?

P: I have the white colour version of the Sudio Tre. The product is looks stunning. There are lovely rose tone buttons and accents at the bottom of the earpieces. It also comes with a matching pouch to carry the Sudio Tre in.

TND: Well, I got the black one. I like the fact that they keep the standard micro-USB charging port for Sudio Tre. I have several wireless earpieces and every single one of them used different charging port making it cumbersome to keep switching cables.

Q2. Sudio claims that this product is designed for an active lifestyle. Well, everyone has different ways of interpreting “active”. How did you guys use the product?

P: I use this product when I work out on my elliptical machine. Sudio Tre remains comfortable to wear even after an hour long cardio session.

TND: I bring this out for run. Similar to the Vasa Bla, the weight of Sudio Tre is very well distributed from one end to another. The addition of “wings” on the earbuds, does not impair the comfort and in fact, the wings’ reinforcement has made the earbuds harder to come off no matter how hard I shake my head.

 

Q3. Which feature of the product appeals to you most?

P: This offering is quite similar to the old Sudio Vasa Bla, but in order to make it more friendly for sports, the earbuds have a wing tip so that it doesn’t fall out easily.

TND: It is not a bad idea to make this product water-resistance. In Singapore, the weather is either rainy or sunny. You don’t want to encounter rain during your run but in the event that happens, you don’t want your device to be spoiled by rainwater.

How long do you need to plank? Simple, time for one song. #sudiotre #gym #instagym #instagood #instasport #workout

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

Q4. What do you hope to see in Sudio’s future products?

P: Recently “true wireless” headphones that have two separate earbuds (like the Sony WF-1000X) are increasingly popular. I hope to see Sudio come up with their own version in future.

TND: I hope their future products could add voice assistance or notification to inform the users on the bluetooth connection and battery usage status.

Availability

The Sudio Tre is retailing at SGD 139/- (after tax rebate of 20%). If you make the purchase online via Sudio’s website, shipping to Singapore entitles you to 20% tax rebate.

On top of that, readers of TheNeoDimension are entitled to an additional 15 % discount. You can use the promo code NEODIMENSION.

More about Arctic Fox VR technology

 

Marking its debut in Southeast Asia, the Arctic Fox VR technology is a fully wireless and untethered system.  Players don only a wireless headset that features a high definition screen and gaming headphones for an immersive surround sound experience.

 

Without the burden of cumbersome cables or backpack computers that hinder physical movement, the system allows the player free movement within a 5 metre x 5 metre (25 square metres) physical space, thereby enhancing the immersive factor of the virtual reality experience.

 

Eight infrared cameras mounted on a truss keep track of the headsets and gameplay pistol positions in 3D where the player’s entire body becomes the controller for the game.  Players can move around in game as freely as they would like – walk, jump, duck, dodge, and even leopard crawl.  Equipped with a software that maps the movements onto the players’ positions within the game, the corresponding virtual visuals are then fed wirelessly to the headsets worn by players with no discernible lag time between the players’ physical movements and corresponding visuals within the game.

Arctic Fox VR headset and controller

Ready to be ushered into unparalleled thrills?  Horror fans will relish the adrenaline rush as Bugis Junction and Bugis+ bring them on a brand-new experience where their worst nightmares come to life with the latest in VR technology.
