Honor 5X worth to buy?

Written by TheCat. Posted in Gadgets, Sharing is Caring

It has been almost a month using honor 5x and it still give me a good impression. A RM899 mid-range smartphone with finger print, metal body, 2GB RAM, 13MP camera, Dual SIM and 5.5″ FullHD LCD really a valuable choice in Malaysia market now. With such specs SAMSUNG, SONY or LG will surely cost more than RM1k or maybe RM2k. But honor 5x still got a big competitor that is Redmi note 3 with almost identical specs but the price is slightly cheaper. Sadly its not available in Malaysia yet unless get it from third party website like 11street or lazada. Since I don’t have it lets not talk about. To do comparison I will compare it with all my 2GB RAM devices like HTC one M7 and ASUS Zenfone 5.

*for more details on specs google it 😛

For me to choose a smartphone, my 1st requirement is the RAM. Honor 5X had 2GB of RAM and its powered by Snapdragon CPU and Adreno GPU which make this device powerful enough to play 3D games. I not a gamer but will still play some game to kill times. The game I tried is Need for Speed No Limit and Clash of Clan. Both game run smoothly and the graphic was superb as well. Just the Need for Speed take a while to load and will facing some lagging if the race was in raining scene.

Talking about playing games, Honor 5X is the 1st device that I did not feel any heat after an hour of game play. My HTC, Samsung, Sony or ASUS will heat-up like hell especially Samsung. Honor has done a great job on this with its premium feel metal body.

2nd Most important part of smartphone is the camera. Ever since the smartphone camera got 5MP I had throw away my camera already. Smartphone its the gadget always stick with me and the quality of the photos taken is comparable with many normal compact camera now or even better. So here I had used my HTC One and ASUS Zenfone 5 to do this camera testing. I’m not a pro in photo taking but hope this test will give you a rough idea the quality of the Honor 5X’s camera.

Comparison Between HTC One and Honor 5X

Auto Mode, photo was taken with windows light (Both look great to me)

HDR Mode, Slightly Cloudy (HTC One give higher contrast)

Indoor with yellow downlight (Honor 5X has brighter photo but HTC One has better color balance)

Shopping Mall Boutique Window Display (Honor 5X has better color balance and brightness)

Close-up and bokeh effect (Both has good close-up but HTC seem to have better brightness)

100% zoom (Honor 5X’s 13MP resolution its a sure win here :P)

Both look great

But after zoom Honor 5X’s 13MP resolution its a sure win 😛

Comparison Between ASUS Zenfone 5 and Honor 5X

From these samples photos, Honor 5X’s camera is much more better than Zenfone 5. Especially in the orange photo, zenfone 5 color is totally out (but the eggs photo, zenfone 5 look much more better) and Honor 5X has better wide angle lens than zenfone 5

Honor 5X’s camera got few interesting feature like Good Food, Beauty and Time-lapse. But I only interested with the good food mode. I dont like the beauty mode as it make me look like alien 😛 As for time-lapse, I don’t have time for that yet 😀

The Honor 5X Good Food mode did make the food look better and more tastier

3rd is the battery life, so far the Honor 5X’s 3000mAh can last me about two days of normal used with Facebook, Instgram, calling, Whatsapp, Youtube and games. I think this is kinda normal, but I do had a bad experience with Samsung battery life 🙁

While charging, I do notice 1 problem, that is it will auto shutdown itself while charging. This had been happen twice and it only happen when I try to charge my Honor 5x and the batter is less than 10% power. And there is one time the phone auto restart itself during charging.

As for the finger print, its a added advantage. But with the finger print it really give a new experience of using a smartphone. With your finger print you can unlock your phone easily and fast, launching favorite app, call your darling with just a touch instead scrolling the long long contact list and finally the best part that I really like about this finger print is privacy. If your wife want to check your phone, you can hide all your private photos or message which you don’t want to let your wife to see 😛

So for my conclusion Honor 5X is a worth phone to buy but will advice you guys to wait a while since the Redmi Note 3 is going to launch in Malaysia soon. You guys can compare with it before making the decision, but for me I will still go for Honor because my experience with EMUI is better than MIUI.

Best Rebate or Cashback Credit Cards

Written by TheCat. Posted in Sharing is Caring

2015 is going to be a hard year for all the Malaysian. Malaysia Ringgit drop, GST, kopi-o increase, kolo-mee increase, everything increase but luckily petrol drop. So to spend more wisely we must have at least one rebate or cashback credit card. So waht is cashback credit card? Cashback credit cards is to convert money you spend into rebates! Sound too good? Yes it is, but it only rebate from 0.1% to 10% of all your total credit card spend depend on the card type and the bank. Since many bank are giving such offer but still many Malaysian dont know about it or not make used of it. I still see many people pay cash when go pump petrol. If pay by cash MYR1.91/liter(Ron95), but if you pay by card you get upto 10% rebate so that mean you only pay MYR1.719/liter(Ron95)! So why pay more when you can pay less? Unless you are too rich 😛

Ok, let me share with you my personal preferable cashback credit card; WISE visa credit card from Hong Leong Bank! Wise Visa Credit Card give 10% of cashback rebate which made it one of the best cashback credit card in Malaysia. Here how the Hong Leong Wise Credit Card work:

  1. 10% cashback rebates on any two of the following categories of your choice: pharmacies, groceries, petrol, dining, departmental, book stores, utilities, entertainment and travel
  2. Mobile billing is a bonus 3rd category
  3. RM100 max monthly cash rebate
  4. You must make 10 x RM50 transactions per month to qualify for the 10% rebate
