Acer Aspire VN7- 592G 7226 Review

Image
Update October 2017

The USB c thunderbolt works like a charm,using the latest WD portable SSD for super fast file transfer. The edges of the monitor panel is easily scuffed when I bring this laptop in /out of its beg while travelling. The problem is more visual because of the shiny aluminium beneath.

I would not want to use auto paint touch up so I use model maker TAMIYA black matte touch up pen .It works ok so far :)



Reviewed July 2016.
FOR

Sept 2017
The government added weekly petrol prices to obscure the subsidy/taxation from road users.
Malaysians are not given salary weekly thus, budget our expense monthly. Therefore, I would from now on tabulate the monthly average of the ups/downs in Malaysia's petrol prices.

October 2017 UPDATE

Got to replace old battery part  for RM 110, now discharging new battery fully before recharging it for accurate battery life level. Old battery would give out charge within 10-15 minutes,have to have it hooked up to the charger constantly,started to bulge 2 weeks ago and pushing the front LCD screen a bit.


September 2015 UPDATE

Got to repair and replace the water damaged LCD screen for MYR 330,added a tempered glass screen protector too.Now the screen works great and it serves as my back up phone.

April 2015 UPDATE
The OTA updated firmware was out there this month.Really loving what Lollipop has to offer.Namely SD card full control with any 3rd party app and able to install some but not all apps/apps data to it too.

It gave the Z1 an extra umph! In day to day task. Double tap on notification now goes direct to the app. Single tap has quick actions too.

Water seepage either at the back/front glass adhesive or 3.5mm earphone jack caused damage to th…

Dengue epidemic (2010- until now)


As of 2016, the official mass media in Malaysia downplay the severity of the dengue epidemic citing that the number of cases/deaths has been reduced from 2015,failing to mention the new broader uptrend of up to 50% in death cases from the period of 2000-2010.

Huawei Watch 1 Review _ Update #1 June 2017

Update #1
June 2017


The Huawei just had its update to Android Wear 2.0 a couple of weeks ago. There is better stability with it managing Bluetooth connection between all my devices ,which to me is the big plus. I still remember Android phones teething problem 4 years ago with Bluetooth connectivity,so I guess it's a common bug.

Uber app is now like a standalone app on the watch itself just pulling data from the phone. So are all apps in the watch,apps are directly installed now to the watch and just accessing the phone for data,location,media,etc.

Notifications now comes in with a gentle buzz,and does not hog the screen.Just swipe up to review all unread notification and swipe left to dismiss! Ahh quick and easy. The only thing I missed was double tapping on the screen brings up the Program/App slider screen. Now you got to use the physical button.
