Photography enthusiasts rejoice! Known for their high-quality smartphone photography, Huawei returns yet again with the latest in their Honor line: Honor 7X.

And we have to say, this sleek beauty does not disappoint. Priced at RM1,099, this phone may not be in the same league as the latest iPhone, but it offers some of the stellar features the elite do without breaking your bank account.

So in precisely how many ways to I love thee Honor 7X? Let me count the ways.

Captivating, top-notch photography

Have you ever wanted a high-tech phone that produces DSLR-like quality photographs? While smartphones have certainly come a long way since their inception, we can’t really say that the photographs they produce are comparable to that of a DLSR’s.

Now we can. Thanks to its dual lens rear cameras of 16MP and 2MP, the Honor 7X has an incredible knack for capturing images that are crisp, and rich in colour and detail.

And have I mentioned the incredibly attractive Bokeh Effect Selfie feature? Your artistic snapshot is just one tap away.

Gesture trigger

With the amount of focus Huawei places on its smartphone photography, it comes as to no surprise that the company has taken a step forward in further enhancing our photo-taking experience. Especially with taking group photographs. How, precisely?

It does this by eliminating the fuss of running over to press the Capture button and running back just in time for the timed flash to come on. All you have to do now is to open and close your hand in front of the phone- and the timed flash will come on a few seconds later. Pretty nifty, if I could say so myself.

Safety airbags

Safety airbags? Aren’t those supposed to be just for cars? Apparently not. Ever vigilant, Huawei has taken great pains to install safety airbags in all four corners of each Honor 7X. So if you think all Honor 7X is good for is looking pretty and taking pictures, think again. This gadget is a hardy friend, and is certainly not to be underestimated.

After 4,800 Honor 7X phones were used in quality tests to ensure just this, it’d be pretty hard to make an argument against it.

Attractive design

Not only does it look rich, the slim body of the Honor 7X allows it to sit comfortably in your hand. This might not sound like a big deal, but it is when you’re trying to swype your latest text message. The minor inconvenience of fumbling with your phone is eliminated thanks to this elegant piece of technology.

Wide, edgeless screen

There is something aesthetically pleasing about having a wide, edgeless screen. Just like how it’s far more enjoyable to watch a movie on the big screen as opposed to the much smaller screen of a television. Do you see where I’m going here?

The Honor 7X provides ultra-high definition and a remarkable display quality- so much so that it would almost be like having a mini cinema screen in the palm of your hand.

Split-screen feature

We’re sure that everyone has had at least one moment where they wish they could multitask on their phone- and we’re sure this happens most often when they’re on YouTube. If only you could watch and listen to your favourite music video without pausing it, just so you could reply to your latest text message…

Thankfully, Huawei has fixed this little predicament by introducing a split-screen feature in the Honor 7X. Want to email someone while watching Netflix? No problem!

Large memory

A microSD card of up to 256GB can be used to increase data storage. In layman’s terms, it means hundreds of television episodes can be downloaded and stored to watch offline afterwards. And as though to combat the concern of Android performance degradation, smart optimization and file management features have been put in place to prevent this.

So fret not. You can go ahead and download that latest episode of Game of Thrones without worry!

Long lasting battery life

With great power comes great responsibility. Fortunately, Honor 7X is able to shoulder its fancy specs without too much of an issue. Even with the larger FullView Display, this sophisticated smartphone can go on for more than one full day.

If you turn on the Ultra Power Saving Mode, its resilience is even more so impressive. You’d be able to watch a full season of your favourite television series or 91 hours of music, on a single charge. Talk about a powerhouse!

So in exactly how many ways do I love thee? Apparently, far too many. The Honor 7X is just that impressive.

  • Genre: Crime/Thriller
  • Language: Malay
  • Starring: Aeril Zafrel, Siti Saleha, Alvin Wong, Iedil Putra, Dato’ A. Tamimi Siregar, Vanidah Imran, Susan Lankaster, Jo Kukathas, Meor Hashim Manap, Amerul Affendi, Chew Kin Wah

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the local entertainment scene, we suggest that it is about time that you are.

Directed by Razaisyam Rashid, “Mandatori” is yet another literary work by famed novelist, Ramlee Awang Murshid, that has been breathed to life- this time on the television screen.

If you feel as though you’ve heard that name before, there’s a good, solid reason for it; he is the novelist who penned the rich world of “Tombiruo”. With how successfully the film version of “Tombiruo” has done in the box office, there is no denying there are expectations for “Mandatori”.

We at Nuffnang are proud to announce that these expectations are not only met, but exceeded.

Despite possessing a trim collection of 6 episodes, this mini series packs a punch from the get-go. It portrays a dark and serious world that is home to murders, conspiracies and deception. A world that criminal profiler, Inspector Norman (Aeril Zafrel), is unfortunately all too accustomed to. Or is he really?

What is it about?

DSC06672_preview

“Mandatori” opens with a murder mystery, one that Inspector Norman manages to solve effortlessly. Armed with a keen eye for observation and a rich imagination, his style of unravelling a crime scene is comparable to that of Will Graham from “Hannibal”. Needless to say, his uncanny ability for accurately profiling criminals makes him an invaluable member of the police force, and he is often called upon to help solve cases. –Even after he expresses his desire to leave the job for good, the twisted and the macabre presumably having taken a toll on him.

Ironically, he isn’t quite able to stay away, and is soon sucked into a series of murders that seem to be connected to one another. What is even more surprising is that this new case reopens several crime cases that happened years ago.

But with each investigation he conducts, he is led to yet another murder. People he knows are brutally killed one after another, and the murderer always leaves behind two pieces of evidence- an Inspector Carlos doll and a piece of paper with the words “Case Closed” written on it. These items are always found in the body of the deceased.

Is it worth a watch?

If you are a fan of the crime thriller genre, then by all means. Thanks to the release of “Tombiruo”, confidence in the local filming industry has reignited, and we daresay that the existence of “Mandatori” will only further reassure that newfound confidence.

After all, how could it not? Along with a stellar cast that artfully delivers their scenes, this mini tv series is also solidly backed up by a strong team of seven writers, who – get this – spent a whopping year to perfect the story. Phew. Talk about dedication!

And if that isn’t enough to convince you, then the sheer aesthetic might, shamefully visual creatures that we humans are. Each hour-long episode of “Mandatori” was crafted with care; from the costumes, locations to the camerawork, a lot of attention to detail was given to ensure that the television adaptation would be worthy of Ramlee Awang Murshid’s popular novel.

You can watch “Mandatori” on channel 480 of Astro First Eksklusif starting this 14th December

For just RM19.10 (6% GST included), viewers can watch all 6 episodes over and over within a period of 5 days after the day of purchase

“Mandatori” can also be found on the “on demand” digital platform.

If there is one thing that people are clueless about when they first start getting into skincare it’s what type of moisturiser they should use on their skin. After all, it’s just moisturiser. They only have one function. So it really shouldn’t make a difference which one you grab off the shelf, right?

Wrong.

Just like how there are different skin types, there are different types of moisturisers to cater to your specific skin type needs. Pick the wrong one, and your face may end up dreadfully dry or home to an oil slick. Neither of which are desirable options.

How does one determine what’s right for them, though? Take a look at the nifty info we’ve compiled for you below, and thank your lucky stars that Nuffnang is here to save the day.

Oily Skin

  • Characteristics: Large pores, skin so oily that you could fry an egg on it and the risk of a pimple or two (or God forbid, cystic acne) popping up ever present… the woes that oily skinned folk are plagued with seem endless. The only good thing about it is that oily skin tends to age well, thanks to all of that excess sebum helping keep wrinkles at bay. Till then, though, can it please behave?
  • What to use: Your best bet with this foe is an oil-free moisturiser. This will make sure that your skin remains hydrated without turning it into an oil slick or depriving it of proper moisture- which will ironically only cause it to produce even more sebum.

Dry Skin

  • Characteristics: On the other side of the spectrum, those born with dry skin have to deal with red, flaky and itchy skin, as well as a general, tight-feeling discomfort.  As if those weren’t enough, they are also prone to wrinkles, fine lines and sensitivity. Lovely, we’re sure! Which is why it is all the more important for dry skinned folk to ensure their complexion is properly hydrated.
  • What to use: Moisturising creams is the way to go with this skin type. These tend to have a higher level of oil, water and wax, all of which will help replenish your skin’s moisture level and retain it.

Combination Skin

  • Characteristics: Just like the name implies, those with this skin type have to deal with different skin types; combination skin is typically characterised by an oily T-zone and dry cheeks. It isn’t the worst skin type to be bestowed with, but it definitely does in some ways require more work in terms of upkeep.
  • What to use: It isn’t the most ideal solution, but what you can do for this skin type is to use an oil-free moisturiser on your T-zone and a moisturising cream on your cheeks. It’s costlier, but at the very least you’ll be using less of both on your face. This means they should last awhile.

Normal Skin

  • Characteristics: If you have normal skin, then lucky you! This skin type has an even skin tone, and experiences no flakiness or oiliness. It’s essentially what other skin types strive to be.
  • What to use: A gel moisturiser should be The One for you. These tend to contain high water content as well as some oil; both ingredients will help replenish your skin while maintaining hydration.

It might seem like a bother to look for the right moisturiser and heck, even tempting to skip right to your sunscreen, but it is exactly what you need to combat premature ageing. So don’t dismiss this important player in your daily skincare; your skin will thank you for it.

With online dating gaining more and more popularity in recent years, it is only natural that this question too gain prominence.

Now, without us getting into the sticky debate of which dating style should reign over all, be it dating one person at a time, multiple at once or none at all because to you, arranged marriage is the way to go, let’s take a look at why some people choose to date more than one simultaneously.

Bear in mind, we’re talking about dating, not exclusive relationships. With that cleared up, let’s go!

It’s a good way to build your confidence

Know those pesky last-minute jitters that have a nasty habit of showing up, right till the day of your date? And sometimes even during the date itself?

By dating multiple people at once, you’ll find that these bundles of nerves will eventually ease to a mere murmur, until they one day go away- at least almost completely. As you can imagine, this newfound confidence will help your dates go more smoothly, and hey, you might even start meeting amazing people you are attracted to.

Why? Because by working on your inside, you’ll meet amazing people who’ll do you justice- because by this time, you’d know and demand the respect that you deserve.

It’ll improve your dating skills

Dating is very much like attending a job interview. You meet a potential someone, chat with them, get to know them and by the end of the date (or string of dates), you decide whether you’d like to continue seeing this person. Sounds pretty easy, no?

Unfortunately for some, it is easier said than done. Some of us just aren’t as comfortable with initiating and holding a conversation with someone new. Fortunately, however, this is a skill that can be learned, and with time, you’ll also learn how to navigate your way through the other aspects of dating, as well as be able to pick out the red flags, if any.

It’s a way to expand your network

Who knows. Unsuccessful match ups don’t necessarily have to drop out of your radar. Perhaps you two sound like a perfect match online, but there’s no chemistry when you actually do meet. And that’s okay. If you’re lucky, you might just end up with a shiny new friend, and that’s not a bad thing at all.

It helps to know that you won’t get very far in life if you don’t work on expanding your social network- so get out there and get to know more people! It’ll only do you more good in the end.

You’ll know what you want in a partner

When you have the abundance of choice, you’ll be more aware of the options that are available to you. And this, my friend, is something you wouldn’t realise if you severely limit your dating options from the get go.

It is here that you’ll get a better idea of what you do and do not want in a partner. And if you have some pre-existing notion of what your ideal partner is, meeting new people might make you realise there are better matches out there for you. This, in turn, will also help you avoid settling for someone who isn’t that good a fit for you, all because you are unaware of the choices out there.

You’ll avoid putting all your eggs in one basket

Ever feel devastated that the person you’re seeing just isn’t that into you? The realisation of all the time, energy and emotional investment you put into that one person comes crashing down on you, and you agonise over what you did or didn’t do to cause them to lose interest. It’s exhausting and heartbreaking, to say the least.

By dating multiple people at once, you’ll avoid putting all your eggs in one basket (and potentially scaring them off too early!). It’ll help you be less emotionally attached, and most importantly, allow you to make choices more objectively. And should one person drop out of your dating life, the sting will lessen as well.

What’s more, this style of dating takes the pressure off having to impress that one person you’re meeting. It’ll be easier to relax and just be yourself.

All of this being said, dating multiple people at once isn’t for everyone. Some might find it overwhelming or not their thing altogether, even if it’s something as simple as just getting to know new people, and that’s okay. Just do you and make sure if you do go for this dating style, you’re open and honest about it if questioned.

After all, no one likes being led on!
