HONOR 20 Lite Review: Mid-range Lite

It’s a little challenging to describe exactly what kind of device the HONOR 20 Lite is.  Taking one look at the price you might get the impression that the quality of the phone matches the cheap cost, but it performs beyond that. At the same time, I also can’t call it a mid-range phone as it doesn’t reach the standards set by others in the market such as Google’s Pixel 3a. At first glance, the HONOR 20 Lite looks alluring to the eye. The distinct neon pink and lavender gradient design featured on the back of the phone that I…

Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Extreme: An Extreme-ly Good Portable Laptop for the Modern Worker

The Lenovo Thinkpad’s X1 series has been famed for providing laptops adept at providing high-powered performance, all while being housed in such a thin and portable system for the modern businessman. Now, Lenovo has added to this to the line-up with the X1 Extreme, equipped with a 15.6-inch display (as compared to the 14-inch display of its predecessor, the X1 Carbon), as well as additional upgrades to the processors and GPU. The laptop dons the classic laptop design from years past, and you won’t find any of the futuristic designs that one would otherwise see on something like a gaming…

Movie Review: P Storm <<P 风暴>> Falls Short of Expectations with a Thin Plot

Following Z Storm (2014), S Storm (2016) and L Storm (2018) comes P Storm <<P 风暴>>, the fourth instalment of the Hong Kong crime thriller series. This time, William Luk (Louis Koo) goes undercover as an inmate to investigate correctional officers who are receiving bribes from an inmate. The film opens with William Luk intentionally getting himself arrested for drink-driving. The next scene reveals his target: inmate Cao Yuen Yuen (Raymond Lam), the wealthy, cold-blooded son of a Chinese tycoon. Yuen Yuen is due for early release, but William believes that Yuen Yuen bribed the officers of the Hong Kong…

Nikon Z7 Camera Review: The Company’s First Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera is Not Really Worth the Hefty Price Tag

Equipped with a high-resolution electronic viewfinder and the first ever on-sensor phase detect system, Nikon has released its first ever full-frame mirrorless camera – the Nikon Z7. It comes jam-packed with features that seem impressive enough to tick off every photographer’s dream camera specs, such as its 45.7 megapixels sensor, 493 on sensor phase detect system, a blistering 9 frames per second, and a 3.6 million dot electronic viewfinder. Would it live up to our expectations? We put it to the test and here’s what we found: Body and Handling Due to the absence of a mirror box, the Nikon…

Suicide Squad: From A Nearly Clueless Perspective

DISCLAIMER: Before we dive down to this review proper, I must confess that my knowledge on DC Heroes is almost zilch.  I do know about the existence of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman and I can roughly tell which heroes are in Marvel or DC, but that’s about as far as my knowledge goes. So naturally my editor thought it would be a GREAT idea to get a clueless writer to catch the movie preview to offer a different take on the highly anticipated American super-“hero” movie. The brouhaha of Suicide Squad has been palpable since its creators released the…

Overwatch: A Masterful Blending of Genres that Leaves You Overjoyed

Overwatch has crosshairs in the middle of your screen and your health bar at the bottom left. And the similarity with most other First-Person Shooters (FPS) games end there. Overwatch plays more like a Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA), akin to Dota 2, League of Legends and Heroes Of The Storm instead of your traditional FPS games like Counter-Strike or Battlefield. Each playable hero is unique without customising, and although some very roughly fulfill roles we’re familiar with like tanks, medics and assault, every single one of them is so much more. This game’s hype and the fan anticipation didn’t just put it into the…

Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum: Pure Typing Bliss at your Fingertips

The G810 Orion Spectrum Keyboard is Logitech’s latest bad boy in the world of mechanical keyboards. Mechanical keyboards create a symbiotic relationship between typing and fun, something which you can never have with a crappy plasticky rubber-dome one. As someone who loves to type and an owner of the legendary IBM Model M keyboard, I must say that I was pleasantly impressed by the G810 Orion Spectrum. After clacking away on the sleek, black keyboard for nearly a month, this keyboard is a beast. Why is the G810 Orion Spectrum that awesome? For starters, it’s definitely because of Logitech’s proprietary…

“Captain America: Civil War”: Marvel’s Best Movie To Date?

The 13th Marvel Studios film “Captain America: Civil War” is the franchise’s long-awaited peak. The Russo brothers get us invested in the ensemble of 12 heroes by pulling together an action-packed drama and setting the standard of how a comic book movie should be. Writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely bring an emotional narrative to screen by brilliantly highlighting characters’ dynamics on screen. The movie plays out like a Netflix binge, with entertaining action sequences and character-building dialogues. “Civil War” is set as as a sequel from “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron”. Based loosely on the comic plotline from 2006 –…

Zayn’s “Mind Of Mine” Might Suffer From One-Track Mindedness

It’s been little more than a year since Zayn Malik (now known mononymously as Zayn – like Madonna or Jesus) announced his exit from One Direction while they were still midway through their world tour – a move that broke the hearts of millions of fans. (They’ll recover.) Dropping his first solo song with as much notice as his departure from the band, “PILLOWTALK” sheds the light, teenager-friendly tone of One Direction and features a much edgier, sensual side of Zayn. As the lead single, it’s a good indication of the songs that follow on his debut LP “Mind Of Mine”…

Same Characters, Same Story, Brand New Enchantment with Favreau’s “The Jungle Book”

A rejuvenating touch to a Disney classic, Favreau moves us with a darker, yet memorable, telling of the man-cub Mowgli’s adventure. There’s always that unease that comes with adaptations or remakes. Will the same thing work again, or just backfire and be a flop? Not gonna lie, we had these very uncertainties with Disney’s latest adaptation, “The Jungle Book (2016)”. Glad to say, director Jon Favreau made us remember just why we loved the 1967 Disney animated classic to begin with. Orphaned at a young age, Mowgli (played by Neel Sethi) is taken in by Indian wolves and raised as one of…
