The much anticipated OnePlus 2 which was announced last Tuesday, 28th July 2015, will be coming to Singapore in Q4 2015 and the local retail price is S$538 for the 64GB variant.

I played with the OnePlus 2 last Friday, 31st July 2015, at the OnePlus 2 media event in Singapore. I love the build of the OnePlus 2, it feels solid and have a premium touch to it. The phone comes with the Sandstone Black back cover which I totally love. If you don’t like it, you can swap it with four other back covers: Bamboo, Rosewood, Black Apricot, Kevlar, which are sold separately.

SoundTeoh Tower Socket With 9 Outlets

Bought the SoundTeoh Tower Socket With 9 Outlets from Home-Fix at Ion Orchard for S$69.90. It is really an awesome space saver because of it’s tower design and best of all, there are 9 sockets! You will not need multi plug adapters anymore.

There are two variants for the SoundTeoh Tower Socket. One is this and the other is the SoundTeoh Tower Socket With 8 Outlets And 2 USB Ports and it costs S$89.90. A good thing about the included USB ports is the combined output of 4.2A which makes it capable of outputting 2.1A per port. Personally, I find it is not worth an additional S$20 if you have a couple of multiple USB port chargers lying around like the Aukey 50W 5V/10A 6-Port Wall Charger or the Anker 40W 5V/8A 5-Port Wall Charger.

The D-Link DIR-890L AC3200 Wireless Tri-Band Gigabit Cloud Router was released in Singapore back in February 2015 and is retailing for S$399 making it the same price as the Linksys EA9200 Wireless AC3200 Tri Band Smart Wi-Fi Router.

I wonder whats up with router names these days, is like each company is trying to add in more keywords to the official name of the router.

Amazon was having a 30% discount on the Nexus Player two weeks ago. I contemplated for a few days because I am not sure if I need it but in the end I still decided to get it because I am a sucker for new gadgets.

I got it on Amazon for US$67.68 (S$93) back on 29th June 2015. Since it does not ship to Singapore directly, I shipped it to my favourite freight forwarder, HopShopGo, and got them to ship to me once they received the parcel. I paid US$19.64 (S$27) for the shipping from HopSHopGo to Singapore via DHL Express.
