    Huawei Ascend P7 review - Super thin and light 5-inch smartphone with flagship features

    When you say flagship smartphone, the characteristics most people will think about is super thin with premium features and an equally premium price. While the Huawei Ascend P7 is certainly super thin at just 6.5mm and packs in a whole bunch of premium flagship-level features, it certainly isn't priced as one. It is also one of the lightest smartphones we've ever reviewed. Is it excellent enough though? Read our full review of the Huawei Ascend P7 smartphone below and find out.

    Sony Xperia Z2, Xperia T2 Ultra and Xperia M2 Malaysia pricing revealed?

    It isn't a secret that Malaysia will be seeing the Sony Xperia Z2, Sony Xperia T2 Ultra and Sony Xperia M2 smartphones soon. However, up until now, we've still been in the dark about pricing, but this could have been revealed in an online brochure for the UOB Bank online store UOB InStore. The listings state that the Malaysia retail pricing for the Sony xperia Z2 is set at RM2399, while the Xperia T2 Ultra is listed at RM1299. The lower end Sony Xperia M2 is listed at RM999. Of note though is that the listing mentions the pricing of the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact at RM1799 despite previous reports that it would retail at RM1699. So far the listings do not mention any exact Malaysia release dates as the devices mentioned are only for pre-order at the UOB InStore for now.

    The unique Sony Xperia Z1 Compact is finally available in Malaysia with a retail price of RM1699. The Xperia Z1 Compact is unique amongst other 'mini' type smartphones in that it retains more or less the same tech specs and features as the smartphone it originates from, which is the Sony Xperia Z1. The only major differences are the size of the device and screen along with the screen resolution, everything else remains the same so you get a 4.3-inch display smartphone with 20.7MP camera! Sellers at our sister site of MobileMegaMall.com are already offering the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact from RM1615, which should be one of the lower prices in the Malaysian market.

    While the Sony Smartband, Xperia Z1 Compact and Xperia T2 Ultra have all been officially confirmed it wasn't confirmed that Malaysia would be getting these devices at the time. However, some Pre-registration forms have opened up for the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact and the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra. Pre-registering for either of the devices will let you get a notification from Sony Malaysia regarding when these devices would be available in Malaysia confirming we'll eventually see them here. Incidentally, the product page for the Sony Smartband is also available at the Sony Malaysia site which means we could soon see the Sony Smartband here in Malaysia as well, but there isn't any pre-registration for the Smartband yet. Also, no news yet on pricing or Malaysia release dates but with the pre-registration already up, we're expecting these devices to arrive in Malaysia soon.
