Buy Sell through mobile in Malaysia

searching in google play results

BEST Among all these, Mudah.my is most probably the best if you want to choose only one app to sell your stuff.  The user navigation design is the best for both sellers and buyers.

WORST Maybank probably spent the most advertisement fee but what it publishes is just how bad they are unfortunately.

Best Value for Money mobile phone in Malaysia 2016 July

The following phones are selling mostly below RM 800 but have the features of what needed in today's modern world.

  • big RAM ie. 3GB
  • big Storage ie. 32GB
  • fast connection ie. LTE
  • acceptable resolutioh ~294 ppi pixel density
  • GPS & varies sensors



Both Xiaomi Redmi 3S Pro & Redmi Note 3 offer great deals for the money you paid.  After all Xiaomi could be considered as the "first" doable or successfully internationalized "alternative" brand i smart phone era.  So both of these phones are great choices for 1st timer getting a smart phone of those who wanted a backup phone but do not want to for go any useful features.

Note is the slightly bigger phone 5.5" compare to the other Redmi series ie 5"




The 2nd one is HTC Desire 628

I haven't used a HTC phone for so long that I don't remember its user interface but if I were to pick it up again I would probably start this this phone.  But since this isn't really that popular, this might not be my first choice on budget phone.


Wiko is another brand who goes along with "alternative" smart phone brands but unfortunately being late in the game, there are just way too many alternative brands nowadays that such alternative is really not a REAL alternative anymore.  Elephone is one example of such not so successful story. U Feel comes with fingerprint sensor but it isn't really a smart feature in my comparison factors.


Subsequently for a little bit more than RM 800 you could also get

Vivo V3 or
Huawei P9 Lite which is strongly recommended but only has 16GB storage

On the other hands, due to past less satisfactory experiences with their brands, these 2 are the qualifying phones but I personally could put them as my last options;

Asus ZenFone
Lenovo Vibe

So all and all, at this point in time.  If I were to get a new budget smart phone I would only go for Xiomi or Huawei for now.

Facebook kills Google ?

The launch of chat bot in Facebook will kill Google ?  So the news article below says -

For those who have seen the birth of Internet, it sounds funny because chat bot is so yesteryears.  It was one of the earliest invention, way before internet has come into form.  Universities dwellers crowd into a chat room talking days and nights.  Some lone souls keep talking chat bots and never gets tire of it.  Sometimes they were so proud that they showed their friends what bot can do too.  Very much like how you show off iPhone's Siri a few years ago.  Chat bots were created by researchers, students or hobbyists.  While nothing fancy other than just wordings, the AI design portion is pretty much there, it learns as it interacts.  Those who has involved AI would know, its about which learning pattern it will use.  As a matter of fact, a good AI would find and tune its own learning pattern.

However, at that time, there weren't enough powerful cheap machines to keep chat bot running for global community; there weren't an environment / eco systems  for bots to provide business values to; and ofcourse today's technology has added sound, visual and 3D animation

Haven't said that, its not like Google doesn't know bot at all.   They have chat bots all along even before their search site became popular.  They re-use it when they introduced google talks.  It's just that they have so many ventures they never really look into chat bots as a new Big thing to work on.

Google Translation bot : https://support.google.com/chat/answer/172257?hl=en

It will be interesting to see if Facebook can really turn this chat bot into the new Big thing.  My bet is it is far from it but it is a Good beginning.  Someone will make something out of it and perhaps Facebook will then acquired him.
