The octa-core war on the local smartphone industry is on! When MediaTek unveiled its true octa-core processor late last year, it took the whole industry by storm. Not only that it is one of the first genuine octa-core processor ever made, but it was also destined to head to MediaTek’s avid client companies who offer devices at a very economical price.
O+ USA’s has had several experimental flagship releases lately. The Imagine and Fab Elite were probably the start of the new era, which eliminated the 8.X naming pattern of previous O+ devices. We’ve become used to 8.12, 8.15, and 8.16 before, but I think this new approach was better.

But the thing is, bringing a laptop every day is a uncomfortable as it entails a lot of additional weight on your bag. It’s not just so practical to burden a heavy equipment to your busy work life every day just to complete basic and essential tasks.
There is an undeniable enormous population of smartphone users these days, and the size just continues to grow at a significant pace. Obviously, this is due to the rapid existence of budget-friendly smartphones – not like before where only the elites’ have the luxury to enjoy the innovations of these smartphones.
Last month, MyPhone introduced a new smartphone that’s aimed to cater to those people who are hunting for a device that fits their low budget. The MyPhone Agua Hail is essentially one of the most capable amongst the mass of devices which are specifically tailored for people on a tight budget.
One of the downsides to using phablets is that its using it as an actual phone tends to become unwieldy at times. This is especially true with my current daily driver, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. Not only that, but using it in public is a thief magnet. And that last one is more important since because almost every phone is affected by this.
Well, it’s official. Phablets aren’t Android-only territory any longer! And it’s a testament to this new classification’s market viability. While still technically a niche market, its popularity has been steadily growing, so much so that other platforms have taken notice.
