Google Search Speed Test

Test was completed on my Zenfone 3

Update: I was at Johor Bahru over the weekend and Speed Test was not available…

Free Internet: McDonald’s, PSA

Located at: #01-25 PSA Building

I honestly thought this was part of ARC

You can see McDonald’s from ARC’s directory… But the address above came from McDonald’s website.

So you connect to their WiFi.

Then on your browser, Ronald (McDonald) will need additional information which includes your name, email address, birth year and month, sex and your mobile phone number (you will receive a one time password through SMS)

Nougat on Asus Zenfone 3 (ZE520K)

Received my update March 09, 2017…

Asus Zenfone 3 Nougat

Better late than never… And as I mentioned earlier, I believe this will be the last major Android update my phone receives (although I would love to see 7.1).

Noticeable changes?

By default, holding the Recent Apps Key will take a Screenshot, you will need to deactivate this feature in Settings to enable the Split Screen Mode.

Notification panel looks new… And yes you can reply to your messages there…

Other than that… It’s basically the same phone…

Crossing my fingers to get Google Assistant soon!

Anker PowerPort+ 5 USB-C with USB Power Delivery

Just purchased an Anker PowerPort+ 5 USB-C with USB Power Delivery from Lazada

I actually purchased it weeks ago, but this is the first time I’m using it…

powerport-5-usb-c-with-usb-power-delivery

 

As you can see, my desk is a bit cluttered today.

You can actually see my Multi Plug Extension in the background…

Don’t get me wrong, I love using my Multi Plug Extension while travelling.

However, as new devices can accept higher voltage/ampere… A faster charger would be handy…

This is where my PowerPort+ 5 comes in… USB-C for my Nexus 6P and Zenfone 3 (and future devices)… Yes, my GoPro Hero 5 also uses a USB-C, but I have a few USB-A to C which should make the other USB Ports useful.

According to Anker (I’ve also sent them emails on this product), it also has enough power to charge a Macbook (including the Pro) and the iPad Air…

I’m not testing it with Ampere this time, but noticeably. It really charges my devices faster…

Zenfone 3 in less than half a day from less than 10% battery and less than 4 hours to fully charge my Power Bank (I needed 2 days to charge this using any of the chargers I have).

Physically, this thing looks and feels good… Even the packaging looks great!

It’s small, but it has a noticeable weight.

It’s tough to recommend this charger to anyone… Most people I know are just happy to use the free charger that came with their devices.

But once you’ve experienced using the PowerPort+ 5 USB-C… You will never find a reason to use your old chargers again.

I can even confidently say, if you use a a Power Bank that’s more than 10,000mAh, you need to have this charger!
