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.

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!
The most third and most anticipated Android Wear device is the Motorola’s Moto 360 which I am guessing will be on sale next month (September 2014).
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.
