Tuesday, February 15th, 2022

Google Pixel 6 (S$999) and Google Pixel 6 Pro (S$1,299) have arrived in Singapore. They are now available exclusively on the Google Store online, together with a selection of phone cases and accessories.

Google Singapore had sent me both the Pixel 6 Pro and the Pixel 6 to try out prior to today’s launch, so I’ve been playing with both phones for a while now.

Powered by Android 12, Google has given the new phones a new user interface (UI) they call “Material Me”, which provides themed UI skins and widgets that are supposed to be highly customised to your you needs.

The Google Pixel 6 Pro is available in Stormy Black and Cloudy White with cases (S$49) in Stormy Sky, Soft Sage, Light Frost and Golden Glow.

I’ve been using the first generation Google Nest Hub at home for years, and it’s brought hours of entertainment to the family.

The second-generation Google Nest Hub reprises many of these same functionalities.

Unboxing the Huawei Watch GT 3 health/fitness/sports smartwatch.

It offers improvements which includes features that had debuted with the flagship Huawei Watch 3 and Watch 3 Pro which was released for APAC in July this year.

Major improvements over its predecessor in the sporty GT (Gran Turismo or Grand Tourer) line include an upgrade of the operating system from the Lite OS to HarmonyOS 2.1.0, an Apps grid replacing a scrolling menu, additional sensors, more accuracy in measurements and a rotatable crown.

Compared to the muscular flagship Watch 3 Pro, the new Huawei Watch GT 3 feels lighter and is slightly smaller though both watch faces measure 46mm.

The Watch GT 3 does not have the eSIM & Wi-Fi capabilities of the Watch 3 Pro, but has a much longer 14 days battery life.

TUCU Review: Belkin SCREENFORCE UltraGlass Treated Screen Protector for iPhone 13 Pro Max

Sunday, December 5th, 2021

Tech-U-Can-Use (TUCU): Guest reviewer Jennifer Lee just received her new iPhone 13 Pro Max so in order to protect it, she got herself the Belkin SCREENFORCE UltraGlass screen protector and applied it herself to the phone. Here’s her experience.

#tech4xmas: This SCREENFORCE UltraGlass screen protector from Belkin makes an ideal Christmas present for the iPhone 13 Pro Max owner.

I am amazed at how easy the application was.

No fuss, just follow the very simple step by step visual guide (included) using the Easy Align Tray.

Belkin makes it easy and fuss-free to self-apply the SCREENFORCE UltraGlass screen protector DIY, as the reviewer tried out.

Unlike most screen protectors, the Belkin Ultraglass application was flawless, precise and bubble-free even at the first attempt.

The Ultraglass feels seamless on the screen, without any curves or bends and you won’t realise there is another layer of screen protector on top.
