tech4xmas 2017 gift ideas review: LG gram notebook computer

Thursday, December 21st, 2017

tech4xmas 2017 gift recommendation: One of few gadgets that totally blew me away and convinces me it is worth its high-end price tag. The road warrior would love to have this as his/her Christmas present. I know I would be absolutely elated!

My take: “The LG gram excels streaks ahead in all four areas that are critical to me - lightweight, battery-life, startup-time, and external connectivity.”

My take: “The LG gram 14 excels streaks ahead in all four areas that are critical to me – lightweight, battery-life, startup-time, and external connectivity.”

Notebooks are such a commodity nowadays that you can get a pretty decent one that meets your needs at an affordable price.

The pricier ones are usually the flagship models of each manufacturer that, in my personal opinion, offer only marginal additional benefits for a huge surcharge.

And usually much of these additional features are in the department of styling and design that, as a pragmatic user, I don’t really care.

So when I tried out the 14-inch LG gram 14 (14Z970), I was pleasantly surprised to find myself planning it as my next purchase – despite its relatively high price tag.

Specs wise, it’s no doubt high end – gram is the only notebook series that LG sells in Singapore.

But what impressed me was how it really stood out in the areas that matters to me – and I mean really stand out!

Firstly, the light weight at 970g. I believe it’s the lightest notebook I’ve ever used, with its enhanced durability Magnesium alloy body.

It’s so light I took a double take when I first handled it – wondering if it was a plastic mockup, even though I knew full well it was a real functioning notebook.

Review: LG G6 Android flagship smartphone in Singapore

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

The G6 is LG’S flagship smartphone sporting a sleek 18:9 aspect ratio, beefed up rear dual cameras and a stunning display all ready for HDR movies. Price in Singapore: S$988.

A post shared by John Tan (@tech4tea) on

My take: The LG G6 packs a large display in a compact body, and is a strong flagship offering that goes back to basics to strengthen usability. Its 18:9 aspect ratio introduces new flexibility in terms of screen layout and user friendliness. The G6 also makes it easy to share the good photos it takes on social media through tight integration in the user interface.

The LG G6 sports a 5.7-inch QHD+ display with an 18:9 wide-screen aspect ratio.

The 2,880 x 1,440 pixels on-screen has a high resolution of 564ppi that’s similar to the 570ppi on its rival, the Samsung S8.
