Seagate Seven Portable Drive

An extremely thin portable drive, the Seagate Seven has a helpful backup software and relatively fast performance. Despite being aesthetically pleasing, the only capacity available for the it is 500 GB. For a portable drive with that capacity, it can be considered as relatively expensive at a price of around S$137. For users who desire only a moderate amount of storage space, this device would be quite ideal to invest in, especially because it has quite an attractive design.

Being the thinnest portable drive currently available on the market, the Seagate Seven also has an eye – catching design. Besides its design, it delivers a performance which is quite satisfactory. It supports USB 3.0 and has a helpful backup software. The portable drive can also work on USB 2.0 at a speed of around 30MBps, which is the fastest speed a standard USB 2.0 can achieve. However, at its price, it is possible to get a portable drive with a capacity of 200 TB.

Its name, Seven, was taken from how thin it is, 7mm. It has a chassis made out of hardened aluminium. This will protect the drive inside from crush damages and shocks. According to the company, the device is able to function even after being run over by a small car. Users have also given feedback that the portable drive feels rugged and is almost impossible to bend.

The device also comes with a USB 3.0 cable which has a foot – long length. When it is connected, a small blue status light would light up and it would pulse lightly when data activities are taking place. The portable drive is preformatted by using exFAT file system. This would mean that both Windows and Mac would work with it without requiring a software installation or setup.

The device also comes with the Seagate Dashboard application. The application has three main backup functions, the PC, Social and Mobile Backup. Only available for Windows, users are able to back up a computer’s file and its folders to the portable drive by using the PC Backup. You are able to let the software pick what should be backed up or alternatively,  you are able to choose the files yourself. The Social Backup function will allow users to share your media to social – networking sites, and the other way around too. The Mobile Backup will allow you to store content on mobile devices by using the downloadable application, Seagate Mobile Backup.

Overall, this is not a portable drive with extremely stunning performances nor does it have a very huge capacity. It is though, extremely sleek, good looking and has a very helpful backup software. I personally would not pay for a portable drive at this price but it might be a more attractive choice if its price dropped.

The Mi Note

Not to be confused with the RedMi Note, this is the Mi Note by XiaoMi. It is a Android powered 5.7 inches phablet. Borrowing a few ideas from other phones, this phablet does seems like great value for money and some has even compared it to the Galaxy Note.However, there is obviously some major difference between the two devices.

It has a curved front glass and rear but has rounded edges. Its rear curve is a little similar to the Samsaung Galaxy Note Edge but without a display. It has quite an eye – catching design. The company has also proved in a series of tests that the glass would not crack easily. It runs on the Android 4.4 KitKat and Xiaomi’s latest custom skin, the Miui 6, which allows you to shrink the onscreen display simply by swiping.

The phablet has a 13 – megapixel rear camera and a front camera of 4 -megapixels. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 3000mAh battery, a 1,920 x 1,080 pixels display in full – HD, 16 or 64GB of internal storage  and two 4G SIM slots. However, no microSD card slot will be available.

Alongside with the phone, XiaoMi will also be releasing a new pair of headphones known as the Mi Headphones. It will have 50 mm beryllium diaphragm speakers which can be used either on – ear over – ear.

Despite the phablet’s great quality and build, getting it out of China will most probably be quite a big challenge and might take awhile. It does though seem like a phone which would be really worth the money.

AKG K323i XS

AKG Acoustics is an Austrian manufacturer well-known for its line of professional microphones, headphones and other audio systems. AKG’s line of in-ear headphones have always been popular among consumers, and the high-end models often carry extremely high price tags with them, with professional-grade AKG K3003i in-ears, costing a whopping S$1700 for a pair of K3003i. Despite the high pricing, the AKG K3003i is still one of the most popular earphones, with a supreme audio quality that many consumers feel justifies the price.

AKG’s K323i XS in-ears which was released last year, has a pricing that is at the direct opposite of the spectrum, with a price of US$56, or S$70 for a pair of K323is. At such a low price range, most consumers can expect low audio quality from most of the common earphones in the market. However, there exists a budget group of in-ear headphones that have audio quality that punch way above their price range, and the AKG K323i XS is one of them.

The AKG K323i XS we tested is the white ‘A’ version, which has a mic and remote controls specifically for Android smartphones, but there is another model designed specifically for iOS users. A run through of the spec sheet reveals a frequency response range of 20-2000 Hz, impedance of 98 ohm as well as sensitivity of 98 db. These specifications are adequate for a mid-range earphone like the K323i, but consumers would probably understand how good the K323i’s audio quality is after personally listening to it.

The audio quality of the K323i are spectacularly impressive due to how it has very comfortable noise-isolating eartips. The noise isolation is great despite the lack of active noise-cancelling technologies on The highs and mids can be heard clearly on these earphones, and bass which is normally excessively boosted on cheap earphones of this price, is gentle yet adequate enough for bass-lovers. Being a fan of bass-heavy earphones myself, these is subjective and results will differ between users. However, one thing is certain – the K323i has great audio. The overall sound can be described as balanced, with high clarity and warmth.

The design and build quality of the AKG K323i XS is excellent, with small and lightweight earbuds that don’t place a strain on the ears even after long hours of usage, something which the K323i has a advantage over other in-ears, such as the Shure SE112. There remains a standard 3.5mm audio jack and eartips of different sizes packaged with the K323i. Despite the size, the AKG K323i XS’s build is still quite durable. Thus, the AKG K323i XS can be said as one of the best budget in-ear earphones on the market, and is highly recommended to consumers who do not wish to spend a lot on in-ears, but still demand good sound quality.

On top of all of that, the Saygus V2 is lined with Kevlar fiber, an IR blaster, a 60GHz mobile transmitter, a built in Harman Kardon audio technology, and a fingerprint scanner. Another unique feature of the phone is that it is open with root access and dual booting between stock Android and any ROM is possible.

As for its price, the company has yet to release any information but with top class specs like this, it is expected to be extremely costly. This device definitely still has massive potential and other phone companies should really be wary of this big release

Huawei Honor 6 Plus

Not long after the Huawei Honor 6 was released, Huawei is already launching its new smartphone model, the Huawei Honor 6 Plus. It is 5.5 – inches long and it improved on what the Apple iPhone 6 lacked. For example, it had a dual 8 – megapixel rear camera and a relatively big 3,600mAh battery. Similar to the HTC One M8, its dual camera system allows you to control the focus of the photo even after it is taken.

It has a black glass design and stripes which looks metallic on the side which is actually plastic. There is also a design at the back of the phone and on it is the “honor” logo. In design, the Honor 6 and the Honor 6 Plus is about the same except that the Honor 6 Plus is a little larger and has two cameras at the back.

The device has a Kirin 925 octa – core processor, four ARM Cortex – 47 and four Cortex – A15 processors. The display of the phone is 5.5  – inches and 1920 x 1080 pixels. It also supports dual – SIM cards and 4G. One of the most eye – catching features of this device, is definitely the dual – camera setup. However,  its setup still lacks some other key features like the optimal zoom. The Huawei Honor 6 also has a relatively good 8 – megapixel front camera.

It does not run on the latest Lollipop 5.0 but is running on the Android KitKat 4.4 .  With the Huawei Emotion UI overlay, the applications will always be on your home screen and the lock screen is also modified so that the user will be able to access applications such as the calculator and flashlight easily.

The Huawei Honor 6 Plus will first be released in China and Huawei has yet to announce when it would be released in other countries. With its unique dual – camera system, this phone definitely has the potential to beat other handsets.
