Maxis moves the steps on its 4G LTE service a lot faster than any other mobile service providers in Malaysia.Being the first 4G LTE service provider in Malaysia,Maxis had announced to provide wider coverage to Penang,Johor Bahru,Kota Kinabalu and Kuching. Yes,they are in East Malaysia now.
Maxis is the first carrier in Malaysia using 1800Mhz 4G LTE network officially which iPhone 5(Model A1429) could run on that frequency.However,users need to update the carrier setting to enable 4G LTE function.It’s only some simple clicks to go and the only thing you need to ensure is you have a Maxis SIM in your device.
Yesterday Facebook held up an event for Android platform.Many people guessed that Mark Zuckerberg would release a Facebook phone and they were curious how would that phone differneciate with other smartphones.Now we know that Zuckerburger is not really building a Facebook phone with sort of Facebook OS,he’s making a phone with Facebook-centric app(launcher).
Facebook is cooperating with HTC to push out this middle range Android phone named HTC First,optimizing Facebook “Home” working on it seamlessly as the default launcher.Facebook chooses to make this happen in Android platform because that’s the one with open source and highly customizable compared to iOS and WP8.
The main concept of Facebook “Home” is to focus on social status which has been the most important part of life for people enjoying the connections with family and friends.When you unlock your phone,you will immediately get the latest Facebook status and respond to that by simple clicks.
I‘ve tried many mobile telco services since MNP available in Malaysia.At first,I changed to DiGi from Maxis as it’s cheaper at that time.However,I gave it up soon because of its bad coverage,especially 3G. So U Mobile got to be my second choice:better plan and quite good 3G coverage as well as speed.Well,after more than one year,I find that there are some weird issues such as hard to connect 3G data with full signal or always sucessfully running on roaming mode when outstation but failing to get data connection.As a heavy mobile data user,it makes me really sad.I want to get a service with reasonable price and good data service quality.Now,I turn to try TuneTalk.
I directly order the SIM pack from the website.It’s free of charge and with RM2 airtime.The only thing you need to do is filling the form with your own particulars,choose the number you wanna get to use and submit it.You can choose to get either normal SIM,micro SIM or even nano SIM.
Hours ago,Samsung unveiled its latest flagship Android smartphone,the latest successor of S series,Galaxy S4 on the stage of Radio City Music Hall in New York City and also provided the live video broadcasting on Youtube as well as on the big screen on New York Times Square.
Frankly speaking,I don’t think it’s so shine on its appearance this time.It just becomes bigger,slimmer,more solid and lighter.It has a 5 inch Full HD super AMOLED display(441ppi) with 7.9mm thick and weigh at 130g.It’s still plasticky(I think Samsung is putting their full effort to make plastic look like metal).At the initial launch,only two colors to be chosen:Black and White.
More people may focus on the new Exynos processor that equips S4 as it’s said to be so powerful.Well,Samsung said depending on region,S4 will either work with Exynos 5(the latest octa-core chip) or Snapdragon S4 Pro with 2GB RAM,giving the options of 16GB/32GB/64GB storage.Of course,they upgraded the camera.The front camera now is 2 mega-pixel and the rear one is 13 mega-pixel BSI camera.
Actually,I feel Samsung now is taking more innovations on user experience and most are on software side.It’s running smoothly with Android 4.2.2. I think a video will let you roughly know all.
