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.

Pictar is an iPhone accessory that will enable you to use your iPhone camera in a way you never thought you could before. It comes with five external buttons for controlling the iPhone camera like how you would usually handle a DLSR. These buttons will help unleash your iPhone camera so you can capture much better pictures all the time.
Pictar multi-state shutter comes with maximum sensitivity, similar to the likes of traditional DLSR where merely pressing the shutter button halfway will force the camera to lock its focus and exposure to track a moving subject. To take a photo, simply pressing the shutter down in full will do the trick.

We've seen quite a few add-on jelly lens that you can either seal on or clip on to a smartphone but ExoLens takes it a step further by offering a wide-angle, telephoto and macro add on lens using Zeiss optics. Quite obviously, the add-on lenses are much larger than your average jelly lens, but the frame is also suitably larger as well and can be mounted on a standard tripod stand. So far, it is just for the Apple iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, 6 and 6 Plus but there are plans for a Samsung Galaxy phone version as well. No Malaysia release dates or pricing details but ExoLens should be available in Q2 2016 at $299 (RM1322) for the macro and wide-angle lens or $199 (RM880) for the telephoto lens.

If you’re wondering what’s that big fat iPhone cover on the image, well that’d be the new iPhone 6s Smart Battery Case by Apple. They have quietly launched it in their online store and it costs $99 (RM421.67).
Coming in Charcoal Gray and White colour options, inserting the Apple iPhone 6s into the charger will automatically display an intelligent battery status on the smartphone’s lock screen and in the Notification Center, it also increases the talk time by up to 25 hours, 18 hours on internet usage, and even longer audio and video playback. We don’t know how much mAh is that, but that’s seriously a lot of power.

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

Leaked images of the upcoming HTC One A9 (set for announcement tomorrow) indicate that like the Lenovo Sisley, the One A9 is going to look like the Apple iPhone 6. While the Sisley didn't have a protruding camera and actually changed up the antenna positioning, the One A9 looks to be nearly identical to the iPhone 6. Cher Wang, HTC CEO was even quoted as mentioning that the One A9 will be a good alternative to Apple's iPhones, as it "strikes a balance between beauty, performance and simplicity."
Tech specs and features include a midrange Snapdragon 617 processor, 2GB / 3GB RAM, 16GB /32GB storage, a 5-inch FHD display, 13MP rear camera and Android 6.0. No Malaysia release dates or pricing details yet but it is going for €599 (RM2883) in Europe. We do recommend taking a pinch of salt with this as it is still a rumour but we'll find out more tomorrow.
