Mobile makes the world go round
As you may have surmised from the front cover, this edition of HWM Malaysia is packed to the brim with mobilecentric content. Our cover story this month concerns recent trends that are fast becoming the norm in the smartphone space, namely mobile HDR technology, bezel-less displays, improved cameras, and fast-charging batteries.
Speaking of batteries, we thought it’ll be interesting to put together four of today’s Android smartphones that are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 SoC to the test – an endurance test, that is. Find out for yourself which is the smartphone that can actually outlast your day on page 60 (‘Endurance Android smartphones’).
Among the smartphones that we reviewed this month are Sony’s super-slow-motion Xperia XZs, HTC’s flagship U Ultra, Xiaomi’s bang-for-your-buck Redmi Note 4, and ASUS’ dual-camera ZenFone 3 Zoom. Also, a cautionary tale for fellow USB-C device owners awaits on page 53 (‘How can a simple USB cable fry your device?’).
