As one of the biggest names in the world of smartphones, tablets, and computers, Apple has a range of top-of-the-line gadgets. Renowned for their sleek designs and powerful specs, Apple’s products are sought-after by millions of consumers all across the globe. However, choosing an Apple product that exactly suits your needs can be tough. To help you with your purchase, here are some tips to get you started.
When buying an iPhone in Malaysia, make sure you get one with a smaller size or screen if you prefer one-hand use. Apple’s previous iPhone smartphones like the 6s fit snugly in the pockets and in one hand. If you’re one of those who think great things come in small packages, then it’s best to look at the non-plus versions of iPhones.
On the other hand, if you like watching a lot of videos and playing games, then an iPhone Plus model is the ideal choice. iPhone Plus versions may be bulky but they wield larger screens that offer excellent color, contrast, and sharpness, such as the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 7 Plus.
Aside from the size and display, there are other factors you need to consider such as the processor’s performance, battery life, camera performance, and storage capacities. If you want an iPhone with a top-notch processor, there’s the A11 Bionic processor that is found in iPhones such as the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and the iPhone X.
If you want a model with the longest battery life, then choose between the iPhone 8 Plus and the 7 Plus – both iPhones have been optimized to perform up to 21 hours of talk time, 13 hours of internet use, 14 hours of video playback, and 60 hours of audio playback.
iPhones in Malaysia are known for their cameras, which are their main selling point. If there’s one iPhone that can take better photos than any other smartphone in the market, that would be the iPhone X. The iPhone X comes with a cutting-edge camera, perfect for those take mobile photography seriously. In addition, when checking for the camera, do not be fooled by the large camera megapixels, instead focus on essential aspects such as aperture (lower values are better), dual lenses, and optical image stabilization.
As for storage capacities, iPhones these days come with 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB storage variants. Some even have 256 GB of internal storage, which is more than enough to store a ton of photos and hundreds of non-HD videos.
If you want a larger iPad, you can go for the iPad Pro which comes in two size variants – 12.9-inch and 9.7-inch. These display sizes won’t make you miss your TV’s big display. Also, the iPad Pro sports four speakers that sound great while watching movies or playing games. On the other hand, if you find the iPad Pro a bit on the expensive side, there’s the iPad 5th generation which is integrated with a decent chipset. It also comes with a Touch ID fingerprint sensor and a 9.7-inch retina display.
Although iPads in Malaysia typically come with larger screens, there are certain models such as the iPad mini that wield a smaller screen at 7.9 inches. This is perfect for those who want an iPad that can easily be used with one hand and handled easily.
Aside from the size, other things you need to consider are the memory, connectivity, and processor. Also, take note of the storage - if you prefer watching a ton of movies or downloading a lot of apps and games, you’re better off with a larger storage model. Otherwise, go for a model with less memory.
Apple Malaysia has laptops and desktops that not only sport sophisticated chassis but also wield powerful processors that are optimized for multimedia applications, gaming, and much more. If you want to get an iMac, consider the type of display before buying. There are two display types, 21.5-inch and 27-inch, which can either be retina or standard. Retina displays offer high pixel densities with a wide color gamut.
Graphics processor is another essential aspect to consider. If you are into working videos and photos, then choose a model with an AMD Radeon graphics. Otherwise, you can go for those with Intel graphics processors, which offer a decent performance.
For Macbooks, if you want a decent, general-use Mac laptop, either get the MacBook Pro 2015 version or the latest model – both wield 13-inch displays. Of course, if you want better performance, it’s best to get the latest model, however, it comes at a premium price. All in all, the right MacBook depends on what you’ll use it for and how much cash you can shell out. Also, don’t forget to get the right specs so you can perform your activities quickly and smoothly.
