It's been quite a while since I last wrote a quick guide. Well, things have been busy and since there's no budget for a new device, well… device reviews will be paused for quite a bit. Instead, I will be writing reviews for apps and quick guides for overcoming errors in my devices.

So, what's in store this time? Recently, I switched from Xiaomi Mi Note 2 to Asus Zenfone 3. Why, because the Mi Note 2 was not mine, and I won a free Zenfone 3. I prefer Zenfone 3's camera (which uses the same sensor as Mi 5, BTW) so I switched. Fortunately, the Snapdragon 625 wasn't that much slower than the former-flagship 821, so I don't really notice the downgrade.

Before returning the Mi Note 2, I had to remove my Google Account in it. Otherwise, the owner will need my password to re-use that device, even after a factory reset. That's been the case ever since Android Lollipop, to at least make it more di…

Nowadays, we tend to have more than one gadgets. Most of us, I reckon, have at least one smartphone and one power bank (and probably a tablet). Imagine living in a house with more people, and that number rises. If each of us use a single adapter for each of our device, how many outlets do we need? Many. And I'm pretty sure you wouldn't want to put extension terminal everywhere in your house, right?

Enter the Aukey PA-T11, a multi-port USB charging station. It has enough USB port to charge 6 of your devices with a single outlet. Also, it supports Qualcomm's QuickCharge 3.0 standard for those who think that the standard 2A charging is too slow.

Infinix is probably a brand most of you never heard before, but here in Indonesia, the brand has gained quite a traction, especially in the official market (that's the term for "legal" phones, which have passed certain regulations and have a more dependable warranty), in which Xiaomi still has limited presence. FYI, Infinix is also present in Africa, the Middle East, and some Asian countries.

Enter the Infinix Zero 4 Plus. Positioned as a flagship for the brand, it houses some key specs such as Mediatek's Deca-Core Helio X20, 20.7MP Camera with OIS, and a large, Full-HD 6" screen. Its big screen may be cumbersome for some, but this means that this smartphone should be perfect for gaming and multimedia consumption. With a competitive price of Rp3,799,000.00 (~U$285), is it a worthy phablet to have?

Non-CPO Refurbished iPhone - 6 Months Later...

Remember the iPhone6 I told you about in this post? Well… it's been about 6 months, and I've decided to part ways with it. In the last week, I've experienced something strange: ghost touch.
What's ghost touch? Ghost touch is a term when your touchscreen detects touches when you don't, as if there's a ghost playing with your phone. This is very annoying, as this not only renders your phone unusable, but also performs unwanted actions in your phone, like calling someone, messaging random people, etc.

At first I thought it was a software bug. During the first times, it rarely happens, and disappears after locking and unlocking the phone. As time goes, it becomes more and more prominent, that even a restart couldn't fix it. I've tried restoring it, starting anew, delete my phone backup, and it still doesn't work.

So, what did I do? Find out after the break.

A few years ago, when I was in the college, I don't even know what Markdown was. It wasn't a programming language, and learning it had no effect on my GPA. Skip to graduation and entering the professional world, I began knowing bit by bit about this simple markup language, especially when I was trained to use GitHub.

Instantly, I felt that Markdown is the right language for me, who writes a lot, and asked myself why I hadn't learned it earlier. Compared to your traditional word processing techniques, Markdown offers unparalleled simplicity and speed. For example, you just need to add asterisks (*) to make the text either italic, bold, or both. To create headings, just use hashtags (#). The more hashtags you use, the lower the header rank is. Creating lists are also much simpler.


With the new blossoming love for the language, I decided to create a simple web-based Markdown editor which instantly converts …
