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…

Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL Review: A for Effort

Google’s unveiling of the new Pixel 3a and 3a XL was a peculiar sight to see. In a market where major smartphone manufacturers are touting the capabilities of their flagship line of phones, Google has decided to go against the grain and instead introduce a product aimed at attracting consumers who have a smaller budget. Right now you can purchase the Google Pixel 3a and 3a XL at SGD $659 and $779 respectively; that’s a really good price compared to the phones by its competitors which routinely hit beyond the $1,000 mark. Of course, with that price point, it’s fairly…

vivo V11: A Mid-range Smartphone With Premium Features

Chinese smartphones have been gaining massive popularity among consumers, and it’s not difficult to see why. Their prevalence — both in and out of the Chinese mainland — are mainly attributed to their low retail price, and the ability to retain the premium specs and features usually found on more expensive flagships. One no longer has to pay kilobuck prices to get dual cameras, a bezel-less screen, a powerful processor, and a fingerprint scanner. Manufacturers like Vivo, Xiaomi, OPPO, and Huawei have been pushing out multiple examples of mid-range phones that can stand up to many current-day flagships, and many…

Vivo V7 Plus (V7+): Another Premium Phone For An Affordable Price

At first glance, the Vivo V7 Plus resembles an OPPO. That’s because both Vivo and OPPO are made by the third largest smartphone manufacturer (just behind Apple and Samsung) that you have probably not heard of: BKK Electronics. The Vivo V7 Plus feels exceedingly premium with the matte black aluminium finish and the antenna bands that are both functional and adds to the aesthetics of the phone.
