Google Chromecast Ultra

I have the first Chromecast back in 2013 and the second Chromecast back in 2015.

Chromecast Ultra is my third Chromecast. It retails for US$69 (S$99). It doesn’t ship to Singapore directly, so you have to go through a freight forwarder like HopShopgo.

Amazon Echo Dot (2nd Generation)

Bougt the Amazon Echo Dot (2nd Generation) the moment it got released on 20th October 2016. It is a pretty much must buy item if you are a tech geek as it only costs US$49.99 (S$71).

I have two Amazon Echo at home. One in the Living Room and one in the Master Bed Room. I used it to controlled my water heater, lights, television and playing radio on it via TuneIn. It makes me even a lazier person. I used to switched on or off my lights manually, but now I have Alexa (Virtual Assistant of Amazon Echo) to do it for me.

Huawei Mate 9 Review

I have been using my Huawei Mate 9 instead of my Nexus 6P ever since I unboxed it.

The UI/UX have been very snappy. It scored 120,794 points on AnTuTu Benchmark whereas the Nexus 6P got 71,576 points. To be fair to the Nexus 6P, the phone has been out for almost a year.
