While it may seem that the prices for devices in Malaysia goes skyrocketing every year, in actual sense we enjoy one of the lowest prices for smartphones and devices around the world. Take the Apple iPhone 6 for example. While it may cost RM 2699 here for the 16GB model, that is actually just an 16% premium over prices in the US.

Yes, you read that right. A shop in China has figured out how to upgrade your Apple iPhone or iPad’s storage up to 128GB of space without causing it to brick on you. How did they do it? Hey, it’s China. They can do anything.
Apple products aren’t easy to modify, as they install a software protection that verifies the hardware in the right configuration. That’s not even the main problem, because you need special tools to work on the hardware and chips and it’s difficult to do so. Not to mention, the iPhone 5s’s motherboard is really tiny to be ejected out safely for the memory chip inside. According to the shop owner, he has very little trouble with iPads and the iPhone 6 is easier to handle but the iPhone 6s is still untested.

Do you remember the last time a smartphone that looks like the Apple iPhone 6? That’d be the HTC One A9 that we covered previously. Of course, HTC isn’t the only one doing that and we found others too that looks even more painfully obvious to the iPhone models. Here are the models that we think looks like an Apple iPhone clone that most people have never heard of in no particular order:-
Criteria - 1) Not affiliated with Apple 2) Design model similarities 3) Back cover doesn't count

On one hand you have the Apple iPhone 6, the smartphone that started the whole bendgate issue and on the other, you have the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, currently the only smartphone in the world with a curved dual-edge screen.

Check out the drop test of both the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge vs the Apple iPhone 6 for yourself below as the results are quite surprising.

U Mobile recently announced the first of it's kind deal in Malaysia for the Apple iPhone 6 andiPhone 6 Plus. Utilizing a new U Microcredit plan you can now get said smartphone from as low as RM98 a month. This is different from previous Malaysia Telco deals because you are paying more for the phone and not the dual combination of phone and plan. In this case it is more like buying a car than a smartphone with a telco plan. The upside is that there is no deposit and you are no longer tied to the plan and can choose to use a different provider if you choose to do so. There are conditions of course, you have to pay the first monthly installment fee plus a one-time administrative fee and you are tied to the U Microcredit deal for 33 months. There are also data plans as well which are not tied to any contract but you do have to pay the remaining phone price subsidy with no penalty. In addition, using a credit card to pay with auto debit monthly fees will allow you to get no upfront payment benefits. If you sign up on 19 March 2015, you also get unlimited Internet till 31 July 2015 for the i60 and i90 plans and until 30 September 2015 for the i130 plan. Check out the table below for more info:

Just recently, Apple Malaysia raised the local Malaysia pricing for the Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus and Apple iPhone 5s. A quick look at the price reveals that the pricing has gone up by about RM150 to RM200 with no difference to tech specs or features. This is probably due to the recent drop in value for the Malaysian Ringgit against the US Dollar which is currently is $1 to RM3.71. The Apple iPhone 5c remains the same though but we don't expect many people to be happy about that either. Hopefully, if the Ringgit goes up within this year, Apple Malaysia will cut the pricing back down but for now, we expect other Malaysia online stores and Malaysian Telcos to follow soon. Check out the complete price increase listing as follows:
- Apple iPhone 6, 16GB storage ~ RM2399 to RM2549
- Apple iPhone 6, 64GB storage ~ RM2749 to RM2949
- Apple iPhone 6, 128GB storage ~ RM3149 to RM3349
- Apple iPhone 6 Plus, 16GB storage ~ RM2749 to RM2949
- Apple iPhone 6 Plus, 64GB storage ~ RM3149 to RM3349
- Apple iPhone 6 Plus, 128GB storage ~ RM3549 to RM3749
- Apple iPhone 5s, 16GB storage ~ RM1999 to RM2149
- Apple iPhone 5s, 32GB storage ~ RM2199 to RM2349
- Apple iPhone 5c, 8GB storage ~ RM1499 (remains the same)

Goldgenie is famous for its customizations on flagship smartphones. The UK based company has gold plated many popular flagship devices like the Apple iPhone 6 to make the device a bit more unique. Now, the company has taken things to the next level. It has just announced the Diamond Ecstasy iPhone 6 edition which is probably the most you can spend on an iPhone. Customers are free to choose between three different coatings for their iPhone 6 – gold, platinum and rose gold.

We take the Apple iPhone 6 out for a spin today with a hands-on video and a gaming demo of Asphalt 8:Airborne. The 4.7-inch display iPhone 6 is a surprisingly thin 6.9mm with a mostly metal body. Featuring the new A8 processor from Apple it should offer graphics and gaming performance better than the previous iPhone. We try this out in our hands-on video which you can check out for yourself in this article.
