There’s definitely something to get excited about the start of May, and it’s the monthly sale from Lazada and Shopee. However, fussing about what things to buy can be a chore. So, it would be indeed helpful if there is a list of things (particularly gadgets — of course!) that one can find at bargain prices during the monthly 5.5 sale.
Without further ado, here’s our unique picks that we think you should be adding to cart this 5.5:
1. Teclast X6 Pro
If you’re looking for a budget Windows convertible that looks and plays the part of a Microsoft Surface, then the Teclast X6 Pro might be the GadgetMatch for you. Be mindful though, as this one has an outdated Intel processor. However, the outdated processor is redeemed by features such as high-res display, 256 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM, plus plenty of ports for whatever peripherals you want to connect.
2. Machenike F117-V65
Machenike is one of those gaming brands that sound too good to be true. However, they have also been delivering the goods at prices that rival its competitors. Machenike’s F117-V, for example, features the not-too-shabby Intel Core i7-10750H processor coupled with a powerful NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650Ti. To round that out, it has a roomy 512 GB SSD storage, a metal shell, and even a backlit RGB keyboard.
3. ThinkPad X1 Nano
There’s a lot to like about the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano. First, it comes in a lightweight package that even rivals the MacBook Air. Second, it delivers with its capable performance, 16:10 display, and a respectable battery life. Finally, it has the legendary ThinkPad branding — expect a good keyboard plus solid build all around.

1. Sony Xperia 5 II
Sony continues to churn out capable smartphones that stand out among the crowd. One of these smartphones is the Xperia 5 II, which is basically the smaller and cheaper version of its flagship 1 II. It inherited all the goods that made the 1 II a great performer and packaged them all in a much compact body. The result? You still get the signature Sony-branded camera setup and apps, along with that unique 21:9 display.
2. Nokia 5.4
This Nokia midrange smartphone is down to a low price for a limited time, so make sure to get it now before it’s gone. It also a good deal, considering that the Nokia 5.4 comes with a capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor. Plus, it even has a respectable 128 GB of storage. The display is big too, which means that it is perfect for extended hours of streaming and light gaming.
3. Infinix Hot 10
Infinix has been making a splash for more-than-capable smartphones offered at mouthwatering prices. The Hot 10 is a good example of this. It comes with a capable MediaTek Helio G70 processor, 128 GB of storage coupled with 4 GB of RAM, and triple cameras for snapping photos in between gaming session and browsing.
ACCESSORIES & PERIPHERALS
1. 18cm Moon Lamp
Can’t go outside to see the moon? Make it your lamp instead with this nice little fixture that’ll play the part of your lovely night light.
2. Tylex X-E02 Extension
Extension cords can be a pain. Just ask anyone who is plugging an EU-made charger into a US plug. Thankfully, this universal extension cord exist. With a length of up to two meters, it should be long enough for most users especially those who love charging multiple devices at once. It even has dedicated USB-A ports which is perfect for those who like to do away with power adapters.

If you want to scream out loud that you’re a weeb that’s crazy about Attack on Titan, this is the way to go. Flaunt this whenever even if there’s no costume party or whatever. Be proud! Just don’t go screaming Sasageyo! randomly.
2. Attack on Titan Necklace Pendants
