LG G Flex 2
Arguably the most unique smartphone on the market, the LG G Flex 2 is made with a distinctive curve that allows the phone to literally “flex”. The arced device fits well in the hand and also against your cheek while taking a call. Bend it all you want and it will fall back into place, unharmed. Where the phone truly demonstrates its value is through its “healing ability”: much like its predecessor, Flex 2’s high-intensity molecular back can take nasty scratches on its back and erase them in a matter in seconds. Priced at S$998. For more information, click here.
Sony a7R II
Among camera brands, Sony doesn’t quite get the attention that others do; so let’s take a look at their newly released α7R II and see why it’s as good – if not better than the others. The model demonstrates its potential, possessing the world’s first back-illuminated full-frame Exmor R CMOS sensor. If this is gibberish to you, let’s put it this way: the resolution is approximately 42 megapixels. Its auto-focus is 40% faster than its previous counterpart. The camera has other juicy features, like the 5-axis image stabilisation and loads more. Priced at S$ 4099. For more information, click here.
