    ROG MATRIX-R9290X-P-4GD5

    Silver award

    Even without messing a lot with the overclocking specialized features due to the fact that we don't have the proper equipment to go for LN2, the overall performance is still pretty solid and the safe mode feature put on a big help to allow us to revert the card back to its factory settings with just a simple click when it's necessary.

    A88X-GAMER

    Recommended Award

    The ASUS A88X-Gamer retails at RM 409, which I think is a pretty good price for a board that still does overclocking and comes with great features like SupremeFX audio system and LAN Guard.

    ZenFone 5 (A500CG)

    HHardware @ 8/10

    For the ZenFone 5, we really like its soft touch, matte texture on the rear, as it delivers excellent handling. The build quality is great for the price consumers are paying. One other hardware aspect that the phone is different from the competitors is 3G data connectivity support on both micro-SIM slots. On the software side, ASUS offers a simpler, modernized interface that will appeal to the mainstream consumers. It boasts some useful features such as What's Next and Do It Later to help you stay up-to-date on your schedule and tasks. That said, lags are still noticeable, and that's despite it having 2GB RAM. Hopefully with time, the ZenUI can be better optimized to overcome this. It is however better than the initially tested 1GB RAM edition. more

    We live in the delusion world thinking that smartphones have came a long journey and spotting all the various functions and features, it is okay to put expensive prices on these gadgets. So, ASUS hops in and saves the day on this. I am holding a smartphone that has an SRP of just RM599 – a figure that I have stopped considering as price tags for smartphones. Oh, and lets not forget, this is the second of the siblings right above the even more affordable Zenfone 4 which was reviewed earlier. Introducing, the Asus Zenfone 5! more
