Lazada x Prolink Suprise Box – For the budding gamer

It’s the Great Singapore Sale, and Lazada has a number of Surprise Boxes for you to check out! Only 4 days left! With 42 surprise boxes to check out.

Here’s the unboxing of the Lazada x Prolink Gaming Box.

There’s a long box inside …

Keyboard? Yep you guessed right!

And there’s more!

There’s still one more mystery item within in the box, and it’s not some cheap gift. The keyboard retails on Lazada for $69 and the mouse for about $29.

Looking for a present for a new budding gamer? This might make a nice one!

The Prolink Borealis Keyboard comes with 3 different backlight colour options, 19 Anti-ghosting keys, and adjustable input speed as well. Though not mechanical, the keys are responsive and the anti-ghosting feature comes in handy for button mashing games. What’s not so good? The backlight customisation is limited and there’s no way to record macros.

The Prolink Furax mouse will light up your gaming rig with its 7-Color breathing LED. The matte finish and rubber grip makes it comfortable to hold, and the 2400 DPI optical sensor allows for quick and responsive movements. It’s a pity that the lighting scheme cannot be adjusted, otherwise it’s really a nice mouse.

The Lazada GSS Sale is from 5th June to 8th June and promises deals of up to 90% off and flash deals every couple of hours! So check back often for some amazing offers.

Now, to help you save more: we have tied up with Lazada for a special voucher code: GSSSEAN18. 18% off!

Meet Jelly, the Nougat smartphone that we didn’t ask for in 2017

There was a time where Samsung Galaxy S’s 4″ WVGA display is being introduced as “Large, high-resolution display” while the first Galaxy Note is known as “Giant” and reviewer noticed weird stare by the public for holding such a huge phone. As time passes, we reached a point where 5.1″ Full HD display for 2017 flagship is considered too small & low resolution. In the time of everyone fighting to squeeze the biggest display into their phone, a small company called Unihertz decided to go opposite and introduce possibly the smallest smartphone that runs Android Nougat, meet Jelly.

Spec sheet wise, the Jelly actually packs a whole lot of feature on its 92.3 x 43 x 13.3 mm size (It’s barely a quarter of the size comparing to iPhone 7 Plus or Pixel XL!). You get a 2.45″ display with a resolution of 240 x 432 pixels running on a Quad-core Mediatek processor, 1/2GB of RAM & 8/16GB of ROM. Most importantly, Jelly is running on the latest mainstream Android version in the market, the Nougat 7.0. Even my 2016 flagship Huawei P9 has yet to get a taste of Nougat at the time of writing.

As a phone size that small, Jelly comes with compromise. For instance, the battery is only 950mAh, probably won’t be the longest-lasting phone that you want but at least it is interchangeable so you can pop in the spare battery if required. The charging time for this phone is going to be significantly shorter since there is so little power consumption on the 2.45″ display.
One thing to be clear of, Jelly is not going to replace your iPhone 7 Plus or Galaxy S8 as the primary phone. Jelly is rather a really compact secondary/backup phone with a decent specification. You are able to get the Jelly (1GB RAM/8GB ROM) or Jelly Pro (2GB RAM/16GB ROM) on Kickstarter by clicking here. Pricing for Jelly starts at US$69 while Jelly Pro starts at US$85 with limited quantity before moving on to the next price range. Their Kickstarter page is fully funded within 57 minutes shows that Jelly is definitely here to stay.

Review and Giveaway! K380 & M337 Combo as Logitech is 34

TGIF Giveaway No 2! Logitech is 34 this October and as part of the celebrations, they have kindly offered two sets of the K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth Keyboard and the M337 Bluetooth Mouse for you readers and supporters! I tested one set of the K380/M337 and I like it. Would’ve love to keep one for myself but will share the joy. However, since I used one set for review, one set will be opened (and used for a week).

Logitech K380 Bluetooth Keyboard Review

Logitech_K380_Blue (1)

I especially enjoyed the K380 multi-device bluetooth keyboard, since it can pair and toggle through a single button across three devices. Perfect for pairing your computer, phone and tablet. Need to send a lengthy Whatsapp message to your boss? Toggle the keyboard and you have the comfort and convenience of desktop typing.

It’s a good keyboard too. I like that the keyboard is compact and well-built. Although compact leads to smaller spacing and smaller keys, which requires some time to adjust. But it didn’t take me long. The keys offer a moderately quiet tactile response, with sufficient travel to make quick typing a breeze. The Logitech K380 also features round key buttons, which I personally felt round keys help in reducing typos.

The keyboard is designed to work with phones, tablets, Android, iOS, Windows computers, Macs, and more. As such, there are a whole lot of mobile device functions such as your Home, Settings, Back button at easy access. This special functions are also set to default, and the traditional function keys require the Fn+F* combination. This leads to a mild annoyance when using it with my Windows computer, since F2, Alt-F4, are combos I frequently used. The K380 uses two AAA battery, which is apparently good for two years. Batteries are included too!

The K380 is quite similar to the K480 keyboard but I prefer the K380 as it doesn’t have the tablet / phone dock. This allows it to be lighter and more compact, although you would still feel the heft of approximately 420g. It can fit your carry bag, but may not be an accessory that you would want to lug around all the time. If you want a more portable option, the Logitech Keys to Go comes to mind.

Logitech M337 Bluetooth Mouse Review

Logitech_Blue (2)

The Logitech M337 Bluetooth Mouse is less fanciful compared to the K380 keyboard. While you can switch across multiple devices at ease on the keyboard, you are limited to one bluetooth pair on the mouse. It looks and feels good though with it’s slight oft angular shape and textured plastic for a comfortable grip. Like other Logitech devices, there’s a programmable navigation button which defaults to mission control on a Mac or Task View on Windows, as well as left and right toggles on the scroll mouse. You can choose to install the associated Logitech app to change the features, but otherwise, it works great just by plugging it in.

The M337 uses a Laser-grade optical sensor which means it can work on just about any surface – from metal café tables to tile countertops to your favorite study desk. Great for a portable laptop mouse. I heard that Bluetooth mice tend to suffer drop outs as compared to the more traditional RF 2.4 GHz wireless mice, but I didn’t really notice any issues when using the mouse. Felt as responsive as a normal wireless mouse, without the hassle of requiring a separate dongle.

TGIF Giveaway! M238 Logitech Mouse

Olivia the Owl and Marc the Monkey from the Logitech M238 series need a new home!

The M238 Wireless mouse are excellent for everyday use, and their bright, colourful designs are a good alternative to traditional boring solid colour mice. There’s a 1000 dpi sensor, wireless (compatible with Logitech unifying tech), 12 months on a single battery (battery is included!), all for $29. Two lucky readers can get it free!

Thanks to Logitech kindly sending me the M238 Wireless Mouse Collection, I have two of the three mice available for this giveaway and would want to use this opportunity to thank my loyal readers! I snagged the red Felicity Fox-themed mouse for my wife. But the other two are equally cute.
