Huawei improves on the perfect with the P10

The P10 defies the odds by improving on what was already great in the P9

Huawei’s P10 has managed to surpass its predecessor by improving on what was already one of the best smartphones on the market.

Huawei’s trademark spin in their smartphone designs comes by adding their own touch to the technology that already exists in mobile engineering landscape, for example, Huawei does not only implement android technology like some other smartphone makers do, but incorporates their EMUI 5.1 software that features machine learning. Huawei also makes their own chipsets from scratch and was the first smartphone maker to seriously consider incorporating dual lens photography at a high-performance level.

The new P10 now builds on that existing technology by upgrading the monochrome sensor on the rear camera from the original 12MP to the current 20MP on the P10. Huawei’s newest flagship product will also be the first smartphone to feature the company’s lossless zoom, a technology developed by Huawei that enables digital zoom without loss of quality.

A huge advancement for the device is Huawei’s implementation of optical image stabilisation (OIS) which will prevent blurry pictures caused by shakiness by compensating for the movement of the device.

The P9’s Leica engineered dual lens was a pioneering idea that has since been mimicked by the likes of its competitors such as Apple in its iPhone 7 plus and Samsung, who has also reportedly experimented with implementing the technology into their new S8 model during its prototyping stages, but opted not to install it in its final design.

The front camera has also undergone an upgrade and now features a Leica co-engineered 8 MP front facing lens. The device also features “portrait mode” which automatically adjusts the lighting to ensure high quality selfies. The P10’s new “adaptive selfie” feature on the front camera also automatically detects when there is more than one person in the shot. It will then change the camera’s settings to take a wide angled picture if the phone feels that it needs to.

Despite the main selling point of the P10 being its camera, the device does not lose out to its competitors in other departments. The P10 plus packs a large 3750 mAh battery while the P10 packs a 3200 mAh batter, both support supercharge that enables fast charging. Compared to another similar device on the market, the S8 only measures to 3000mAh, the same size as Huawei’s 2016 P9.

Battery Capacity (mAH), Higher is batter

Android 7.0 Nougat

The Android 7.0 Nougat runs alongside Huawei’s EMUI 5.1 which has implemented machine learning into the smartphone’s software. According to Huawei, EMUI 5.1 will be able to gauge how its user operates the device and adapt to him or her, increasing its overall operating efficiency. Because of this, Huawei says that the P10 will run faster a year after purchase than if it were fresh out of the box.  

New Processor

The P10 also packs Huawei’s newest processor, the octa-core Kirin 960 CPU. The Huawei made chipset slaps around its competitors in multi-core efficiency tests scoring above the likes of Samsung, Qualcomm and the iPhone’s A10 chip.

Huawei’s P10 has also improved its display and increased the pixel density of the device, measuring at 432 PPto 424 PPI on the Huawei P9. It’s also improved on its screen’s durability with its Gorilla Glass 5 screeI compared n instead of the old third generation Gorilla screens on the P9.

Putting another cherry on top of this device is the hyper diamond cut finishing that’s anti- fingerprint, anti-scratch and anti- slip.

The Huawei P10 is currently available in black and gold. Two new coloured models, blue and green, will be released on the 5th of May

*Pantone coloured P10, blue and green are available on 5th May.
Pantone coloured P10 Plus will be available within this month.

The newest generation of Huawei’s flagship line has surpassed all expectations of the company and if this is the benchmark with which we can set as an outlook to the company’s future products, the world of mobile phones looks brighter than ever.

5 things you didn’t know about hearing aids and hearing loss

Free consultation for you

A 25 year-long American study has found a direct correlation between hearing loss and dementia.

T he study revealed much regarding the common occurence of hearing loss that plagues society, and how to prevent hearing loss from affecting your daily routine.

Hearing loss is the result of sound signals not reaching the brain. It can make certain syllables and sounds harder to hear. High-pitched consonants like f, s and t are easily drowned out by louder, low-pitched vowels like a, o and u. This results in a person with hearing loss complaining that they can hear that others are speaking, but not understand what they are actually saying.

Here are the 5 things you did not know about hearing aids and hearing loss

1) Symptoms of hearing loss

Symptoms of hearing loss may have more subtle characteristics than other diseases like diabetes that more obviously present themselves. Symptoms of hearing loss include things like:

Asking people to repeat themselves.

2) Hearing loss can lead to decreased cognitive function

Loss of hearing can cause the brain to slowly degenerate due to the cognitive load that is put on the brain in order to process those sounds, sacrificing the efficiency of processing other functions such as memory and thinking. The study of 600 older adults found that those with untreated hearing loss at the beginning of the study were more likely to develop dementia than adults who had hearing loss but were wearing hearing aids.

3) Hearing aids can aid in protecting cognitive function

By helping the user to detect and translate these sounds into a form that the brain can easily interpret, it lessens the cognitive load, letting it spend the extra effort on other functions such as memory and decision making.

4) One in three people above 50 has hearing loss

According to the American centre for disease control, hearing loss is the third most chronic condition and more commonplace than the more widely known diseases such as diabetes and asthma. The CDC estimates roughly 600 million people worldwide are living with hearing loss and that this is most prevalent in Asian Pacific countries, which includes Malaysia.

5) Hearing aid technology has improved by leaps and bounds

Hearing aids are impressive micro-computers that detect your listening environment and adjusts itself to suit your needs. Today’s devices can even be controlled from your smartphone via bluetooth, and unlike in years past when hearing aids were large, protruding devices, today’s hearing aids are almost invisible, only a few millimeters long and roughly the size of coffee beans.

Today, the new Siemens technology offers advanced features that will enhance your ability to hear clearly. hear.com offers models in three categories of technology, basic, mid-range, and premium, to match the level of your hearing loss and your budget needs.

    Where to begin with Chinese medicine and Western medicine?

    Where to begin with Chinese medicine and Western medicine?

    Gout, an ‘ancient’ disease that has been plaguing humans since ancient Egypt circa 7,000 years ago. Archaeological studies found that mummies excavated from the Egyptian pyramids contained urate crystals in their joints. Famous Greek physician Hippocrates also stated the existence of gout in his times.

    In ancient times, people’s understanding of gout was virtually nil, let alone treatment and medication. When gout strikes, they simply resort to seeking divine help, hoping for a miracle.

    Pharmacologists at DALTON, Australia discovered that drinking hot (Australian cudweed flower) herbal drink can significantly help to reduce one’s uric acid and joint pain relief.

    Australian cudweed flower contains rich anti-gout ingredients that can break down stubborn tophi effectively.

    The 100% natural herbal and non-pharmaceutical formula of SORNADO Tea Bag has a number of positive effects such as balancing uric acid levels, relieving joint pains, detoxification, repairing spleen and kidneys, promoting haematopoiesis and strengthening immune system. SORNADO Tea Bag is accorded with the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) certification by the Department of Health, Australia for its efficacy in normalizing uric acid levels (Certification Number: AUST L203504).

    The efficacy of SORNADO Tea Bag is derived primarily from remedying the root cause of purine metabolism disorder by controlling the production of uric acid while at the same time stimulating the decomposition of urates and discharge of uric acid. Overall, it helps to restore uric acid to normal levels to prevent acute gout attacks and fundamentally ease the pain.

    The uric acid reduction efficacy of SORNADO Tea Bag is 17.7 times higher than that of colchicine, as the findings of the year-long study reveals. Clinical trial had also proved that SORNADO Tea Bag is able to keep the gout recurrence rate down to below 40% and more significantly, it does not cause any side effects.

    Therefore, SORNADO Tea Bag is not only created for gout patients but also for people with high uric acid levels!

    3ciety launches new marketplace to empower individuals to monetise ideas through merchandise

    3ciety launches new marketplace to empower individuals to monetise ideas through merchandise

    April 3rd, 2017 – Kuala Lumpur based e-commerce startup Threeciety Sdn Bhd, previously known as ‘Threes & Tees’, launched its 3ciety e-marketplace at 3ciety.com to help individuals create and sell merchandise online today.

    Selling merchandise online is big business. Just in the last decade, fashion e-commerce stores and marketplaces have bloomed in Malaysia and across South-East Asia.

    However, high upfront costs, insufficient management resources, the risk of unsold inventory and the fear of failing have discouraged many from taking the leap to start their own merchandise lines.

    3ciety, which has a track record of working with brands like Astro on their 2016 blockbuster ‘Ola Bola’ to help them market and sell their merchandise online, is now opening up its on-demand platform to enable anyone to create and sell their custom-designed merchandise online.

    Without any paywall of upfront or recurring fees, 3ciety is looking to bring the cost of starting your own merchandise line right down to zero!

    3ciety’s CEO and founder Ija Mohan says the entire process is easy and completely automated.

    “3ciety offers sellers an array of customisable products which they can upload their designs onto or they can leverage our free and easy-to-use designer tool to create their own designs from fonts and cliparts,” he says.

    “Each product has a minimum selling price, or base price, which the seller can mark up as they wish.

    “Anytime a customer buys a seller’s product, 3ciety manages the entire fulfilment process, from order processing and manufacturing, to delivery and customer service.

    “We then deposit the profits into the seller’s account,” he adds.

    Ija believes the platform would help non-designers and organisations as well.

    “Content sells, whether it’s a great design on a t-shirt or a simple trending hashtag on a tote-bag,” he says.

    “With our online designer tools, anyone can create products online without relying on complex and expensive design software’s.

    “Groups, clubs, societies and others can use the platform to sell to their community without worrying about budgets, order quantity, product sizing, delivery or fulfilment.

    “3ciety can also be used as an avenue to raise funds,” he adds.

    The 3ciety platform is web and mobile-responsive, but the company also plans to roll out a mobile app later this year that will focus on empowering and driving community engagement between sellers and consumers.

    About Threeciety Sdn Bhd

    Founded as ‘Threes & Tees’ with a focus on helping brands, Threeciety Sdn Bhd has been rebranded to reflect its new vision of an open merchandising marketplace for all. The rebranded company and new platform aim to build a regional ecosystem for Designers, Brands & Fans.

    This dream is hardcoded into the brand by reflecting the amalgamation of 3 communities into 1 society…  3ciety!

    Driven by the brand’s “Express, Engage & Experience” motto, 3ciety aims to empower designers’ expression, build brand engagement and deliver a great fan experience for Malaysia, and soon, across South-East Asia.

    Having raised a seed round from Cradle Seed Ventures in 2016, the team aims to raise their Series A round next in line with their regional push.

    Tiguan receives the German Design Award 2017

    Tiguan receives the German Design Award 2017

    Tiguan receives the German Design Award 2017

    The German Design Council has announced the winners of the German Design Award 2017. A Volkswagen brand model is among this year’s winners: the Volkswagen Tiguan has been selected as a winner in the “Transportation” category and honoured with this prestigious and preeminent award.

    The German Design Award is the sixth award won this year by the new Tiguan for outstanding automotive design. The Volkswagen design team led by Klaus Bischoff has given the second generation of this popular compact SUV an elegant appearance. The new Tiguan is longer, wider and lower in height compared to its predecessor. These new dimensions have been achieved in no small part through the use of the MQB (Modular Transverse Matrix). The result is a striking SUV profile with distinctive proportions and a very dynamic design. At the front, the radiator grille and LED projection headlights unit (fitted as standard in the Highline equipment option) emphasises the powerfully upright overall impression.

    Established in 2012, the German Design Award is one of the most prestigious design competitions in the world and is highly regarded well beyond expert circles. This coveted prize is awarded by the German Design Council. Founded in 1953 by the German Bundestag as a foundation, this international committee is one of the world’s leading centres of excellence for communication and brand management within the design field.

    The all-new Tiguan is set to launch early April, for more information on the all-new Tiguan, please visit your nearest Volkswagen authorized dealer or visit www.volkswagen.com.my.
