The MateBook D 15 is a fantastic 15-inch laptop. It’s perfect for both work and learning. It’s equipped with the AMD Ryzen 3500U processor. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s a processor that’s often been compared to the Intel Core i5 8250u.

It’s also home to features like a hybrid power and fingeprint scanner button, a now-you-see-me, now-you-don’t recessed webcam, and the nifty Huawei Share that lets you quickly share files and control your Huawei or Honor phone straight from the laptop.

MateBook 13

Albeit smaller, the MateBook 13 actually packs more power. It’s powered by a 10th gen Intel Core processor with a 16GB dual channel RAM and 512GB of internal storage. Huawei says you can expect fast reading and writing speeds, image and video editing tasks, as well as entertainment experiences.

LG Singapore launches Lazada store, offers discounts

Up to 25% savings can be had on purchases

Published

on

Amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, more and more tech brands are relying on online stores to reach their customers. LG Singapore is the latest brand to go online with the opening of its flagship Lazada store. To mark the opening, it is discounting its appliances and devices for a limited time.

There’s a wide range of appliances on offer with LG’s Lazada store. Customers who buy LG appliances from May 23 to May 31 can get savings of up to 25% and a further 3% discount with a minimum purchase of SG$ 499.

Those who work from home will find a great range of LG TV and monitors on offer at the online store. They can also purchase the latest LG Gram through Lazada should they need a trusty laptop for their work.

Those who wanted to step up their facial self-care routine will also appreciate LG store’s selection of Pra.L appliances. For a limited time, LG will give away two complimentary brush heads with every purchase of Pra.L Dual Cleanser.

Other appliances offered on the Lazada store include LG refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, and more. There’s something for everyone on the online store, so be sure to check it out here.

Youtube support channel

LG has also put up a Youtube support channel to help customers in troubleshooting their appliances. Their Youtube channel features handy tutorials on common troubleshooting problems. Since most customer service centers are still closed or are operating in a limited capacity in most areas, the channel is a great alternative for those who need help with their LG devices.

With LG opening its online store on Lazada and putting up a support channel on Youtube, customers don’t have to go to a physical store just to buy or have their appliances repaired. This is not just convenient for many, but also necessary as Singapore still restricts many non-essential shops from opening.
