Personally, I feel that both the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge have awesome build quality and the screen is superb. As usual, the only thing I don’t like about them is the amount of bloatware apps inside the phone.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 4G+ will be available in Singapore from next Saturday, 11th October 2014 at a recommended retail price (RRP) of S$1,088. Two colors will be available at launch, the Charcoal Black and Frost White. The Blossom Pink and Bronze Gold colors will be available at a later date.

The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will be launching on Friday, 19th September 2014 at 8am at Marina Bay Sands, Exhibition Hall A, level 1.
During the pre-order of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on the Apple Singapore Store at about 3.30pm, I am one of the many users who ran into problems buying the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus because clicking on the Select button as shown in the red box below does nothing. It should redirect you to another page so that you can add that into the cart. But unfortunately, that doesn’t happen.
Thanks to my colleague, Li Soon, who spotted the link and sent it to me. So for the next wave of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, just use the direct links below and click “Add to Cart” button on the right.
Apple announced the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus at this morning event. The good news is that as usual, Singapore is one of the nine countries that will be available at the official launch date of 19th September 2014 alongside United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, Hong Kong and Japan. I thought China would be in the list as Apple seems to be focusing a lot of China lately.
The only difference between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus is the screen/display. In addition, the iPhone 6 Plus has optical image stabilisation vs the digital image stabilisation on the iPhone 6.
The OPPO N1 Mini and OPPO Neo 5 was officially launched on the 16th August 2014. The OPPO N1 Mini will retail for S$549 (without contact) while the OPPO Neo 5 will retail for S$219 (without contact). You can get them from Singtel exclusive retailers, M1 exclusive distributor and authorised OPPO retailers.
OPPO N1 Mini
As smartphones continue to explore the notion of bigger screens, OPPO goes back to basics with its signature twist – a 5-inch handy-sized successor to the popular N1 phablet. The N1 Mini, which comes in White and Cool Mint Blue, sports features much like its predecessor such as the impressive 13-megapixel rotating camera for that extra clear selfie!
Bought my orange Nokia Lumia 930 from MobyShop on the same date as the official launch (Saturday, 12th July 2014) for S$699 (RRP is S$789). I traded in my old HTC One (32GB) for S$250, so I ended up paying S$449 for the Lumia 930.
Nokia Lumia 930 will be available in Singapore starting tomorrow, 12th July 2014 for S$789 at Nokia Stores, Nokia Solution Partners and at all 3 local operators (SingTel, M1, StarHub). All four colors: bright orange, bright green, black and white will be available at launch.
I will be getting my Nokia Lumia 930 in orange without contact from MobyShop because they are selling it for S$699 only and the stocks will arrive later today. While I am there, I will be trading in my HTC One (32GB) for S$250 since I have no use for another Android phone after owning a Nexus 5.
Xiaomi’s Redmi Note will be available in Singapore tomorrow, 8th July 2014 at 12pm for S$199.
On that day, 5,000 units of Redmi Note will be available. But if you are paying attention to Xiaomi weekly sales which normally happen every Tuesday at 12pm, there is always 5,000 units available. If you fail to get it next Tuesday, be patient and you should be able to get it on the 15th July 2014, if not 22nd July 2014.
I always wanted a Nexus 5 because it is the best Android phone I have ever used! The stock Android is fast because there is no bloat and updates come in as soon as Google releases it. The camera is awesome and there is wireless charging built-in.
