CompAsia Launch ‘ReNew+’ - Making Buying New Smartphones More Affordable Every Year, now with Maybank EzyPay

11:36 am Deelicious 0 Comments

Yupe! You read it right. A new phone every year.
Regional IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) company,  ComputerAsia Sdn Bhd (brandname CompAsia ), unveiled a smart ownership programme called ‘ReNew+’ to fundamentally change the way people buy and own their smartphones in Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines. The introduction of ‘ReNew+’ marked a rare pioneering move ever undertaken by an ITAD company to penetrate and compete in the new smartphone devices markets in these countries.


Set up in 2012 to reinvigorate and impact the ITAD industry Asia-wide, CompAsia operated its first facility in Petaling Jaya in 2012 to undertake secure data removal, repair, rebuild, refurbish and remarket used consumer electronics such as laptops, desktops, servers, PC monitors, tablets and smartphones. The refurbished machines and devices are sold directly to consumers via its optimised online retail store and its distribution channels located nationwide. Today and 4 years later, CompAsia has also expanded to Singapore and built its second ITAD facility in the Philippines in 2016, as the Company continues to grow to become one of Asia’s leading and trusted suppliers of professionally-refurbished consumer electronics, IT and telecommunications equipment.

With the maiden launch of ‘ReNew+’ today, CompAsia has just made buying a new smartphone every year more affordable. This smarter upgrade programme unleashes its first product offering - it allows customers in Malaysia to pay only a low monthly fee for a new iPhone 7s or 7+ and also allows them to trade them in after 12 months of payments to get the next generation iPhone without the hassle of any upgrading or termination fees.

Customers are required to purchase the latest iPhones from CompAsia‘s online store (www.compasia.com) or from the participating stores of its collaborating partners. Tied to MayBank’s EzyPay that offers an interest-free instalment plan of up to 24 months, this robust upgrade programme allows eligible customers purchase the new iPhones using Maybank’s credit cards.

With low monthly payments and no upfront payment, ‘ReNew+’ also comes bundled with ‘Phone Guard’ that provides a one-year free protection for cracked screens.

For me, with my experience with the recently "recalled" units, it's a nightmare. I wished this was introduced to me prior! Sigh....



In a nutshell, ReNew+ is uniquely designed to provide a smarter choice for owners who want to upgrade their high end smartphones every year. However unlike other traditional plans offered by local carriers, ReNew+ is uniquely carrier-independent as it frees users from having to be locked to a single carrier for two years. This super-flexible upgrade plan simply allows owners the freedom to choose new carriers or even continue with current ones. More significantly, users are also free to switch carriers even after 12 months without the hassle of getting out of a carrier’s specific two-year plan.

“ReNew+ is launched to initially offer upgrades for iPhones because there is always a great demand for them in the resale market as these cherished premium-priced iOS devices are still unaffordable by many in the developing Asian markets. Additionally, iPhone users tend to upgrade more frequently than other smartphone owners,” said Julius Lim, CEO of CompAsia.

He added CompAsia’s aim was to be able to offer more choices and flexibilities than current traditional consumer OEMs and local mobile carriers because majority customers just wanted a hassle-free and good early upgrade deal. With ReNew+, he said customers have now become aware that there is a different way they can actually buy and sell their smartphones.

“We hope ReNew+ can impact, if not, ‘uberized’ the way smartphones are being sold and bought here in Malaysia, Singapore and the Phiippines. The ‘uberization’ of this smartphone market is just getting started and we can expect to see new and smarter ways of maximizing utilization of capital and assets to tap both the forward and reverse logistics of the smartphone supply chain. Clearly the smartphone market and its development are accelerating so rapidly making it the next big business ripe for Uberstyle disruption,” he opined.

“We aim to maximise the lifecycle of every smartphone and we will reuse and repair until it has no re-use value before we recycle them. We strongly feel re-using them is a great technology choice that can help reduces the overall impact on the environment. Sustainability has always been the core driver of our ITAD business at CompAsia. Deloitte Global has predicted one billion smartphones will be purchased as upgrades for the first time in 2016. So what happens to older ones? As such we feel moving forward in the supply chain to tap the new smartphone devices market is a right move for us especially given how the smartphone market is primed for such massive growth,” he added.

“Today CompAsia is expanding beyond ITAD and ReNew+’s debut today signals CompAsia’s push into the new smartphone devices business. Like any other businesses, we have long been attracted and committed to finding new, innovative and transformative ways of driving growth in our ITAD business and ReNew+ is just another step in that direction. We view the ReNew+ as the right strategy at the right time to catalyze upgrades. ReNew+ is a relatively straightforward way to get more users to give up their older phones when they decide to upgrade to the most newer/recent smartphone. RENEW+ is set to fundamentally change the way people buy and sell their smartphones," Lim emphasised.

Getting into this new smartphone devices market is going to be another exciting challenge for CompAsia but we have the right drivers and experience - as a leading ITAD player, we have been helping consumer OEMs and carriers refurbish their used smartphone devices thus allowing them to unlock additional value from their own reverse supply chain. We have the necessary infrastructures in place such as the two ITAD facilities in Malaysia and the Philippines to undertake professional refurbishing activities and more importantly, the secure removal of data in second-hand smartphone devices. We are a leading player in the resale market for re-used smartphones which forms a significant part of the mobile ecosystem so it’s a logical move for us to want to participate in the way new smartphones are being sold too.”

Lim also pointed out, “The rise in the smartphone re-use market has impacted the sales of its new smartphones market. Similarly the growth of the new devices market has also affected the growth of its second-hand market. We believe there is a direct correlation between growth of new devices market & growth of its used market and it is said to be about 10%.”


Deloitte Global has predicted a total of 1.6 billion smartphones are expected to be sold in 2016. In the same year, the worldwide market for refurbished smartphones is forecasted by Deloitte to grow to 120 million units (worth $17bn or 7% of total smartphone sales) and this used smartphone market is expected to grow 4-5 times faster than the overall smartphone market.

Lim finally disclosed: “CompAsia’s ReNew+ will also be unleashing yet another exciting upgrade opportunity for high-end Android devices by early next year too. More significantly, it is set to be ‘brand-free’ as qualified customers can also upgrade their smartphones to different high-end brands.” 

Ain't this awesome? Great news for those who want a new phone every year!!!

adidas shower gel: The harder you go, the better it works!

7:03 pm Deelicious 0 Comments

The all-new adidas climacool shower gel - get ready to perform better!

Who doesn't need this? adidas just launched a full range of shower gel for men and women. With the On-the-Go Freshness with Move-Activated Tech, adidas climacool shower gel releases fresh fragrance during movement!

If you have a demanding and active lifestyle but don’t want to smell like you been out whole day, sweating, bau asam? Then this is the perfect product for you.

Its latest climacool shower gel is infused with its proprietary move-activated technology that transforms your movements into invigorating freshness, so the harder you go, the better it works!


How does climacool shower gel work? The magic – or, more accurately, science – lies in the exclusive fresh capsules in the formula. While you enjoy a rejuvenating shower, these capsules come into contact with your skin and cling on even after you towel yourself off. During the course of the day, these capsules kick into action upon contact or friction – such as a light touch or rolling up the sleeves – and breaks to release the zesty fragrance inside. This means you constantly feel and smell fresh, from the gym to the office to the fancy dinner with friends.

Not only that, you no longer need to have a battalion of bottles and products in your bathroom. Each climacool shower gel is actually three products – a body wash, a hair shampoo and a facial cleanser. In other words, you can use it for top-to-toe cleansing without worries, as the dermo-tested formulation is designed to maintain the skin’s natural pH balance. Moreover, the easy-to-rinse lather leaves skin soft to the touch.


The shower gel is adidas’ latest product to feature its climacool technology, which has been a favourite of active urbanites for a while. The first product was created with modern athletes in mind, catering to their need for long-lasting freshness. Thus, adidas climacool ventilated sportswear was rolled out. It became a hit, loved for its ability to dissipate heat and moisture, thereby keeping the sporty crowd cool and dry even during intense effort.

With the success of the sportswear, adidas upped its game. The climacool anti-perspirant was the brand’s next star. Infused with move-activated fresh capsules, this product gained a strong following with its 48-hour dry protection.

Now, the introduction of the shower gel completes the climacool routine. Designed for those who embrace the thrill of being on-the-move, this routine ensures that the harder you go, the better it works to keep you cool and collected.

Some of the celebrities attending the launch!
Some may wonder, if the climacool shower gel’s fragrance is so long-lasting, will it clash with the fragrance of the climacool anti-perspirant? Don’t sweat, adidas is one step ahead. The shower gel’s fragrance matches the scent profile of the anti-perspirant, thus both complement each other in maximizing the refreshing experience.

Male and female versions of the shower gel are specifically tailored for each gender. Blending notes of lemon, mint and lavender, the male shower gel exudes an energetic and bold signature. In harmony with this, the scent for women is a zesty mix of juicy citrus and bright floral tones, emanating a youthful and feminine allure.

The climacool shower gel packaging is cleverly designed to put an end to slippery blunders in the bathroom. The variant for men features grips down either side of the bottle for an ultra-comfortable hold, while the female version is a gently-curved profile that prevents the bottle from slipping out of wet hands.

The all-new shower gel by adidias
When the going gets tough, the tough stays cool. Activate freshness all day long with the adidas climacool shower gel! The adidas shower gel comes in two different sizes for men and women. The 250ml bottle retails at RM10.90, and the 400ml at RM14.90.

To complete the climacool experience, put on climacool anti-perspirant deodorant spray or roll-on after your shower for long-lasting dry protection and fragrance. They retail body spray at RM19.90 for men, RM15.90 for women and RM8.90 for roll on men and women respectively.


The climacool body care ranges are available for purchase at leading pharmacies and supermarkets nationwide. Get yours today, and get ready for performance in motion.
