So when I saw this at Lazada RM 56 for an OTG drive that supports USB 2.0, Lightning interface for iOS and Android devices, it looked too good to be true.
Ordered it online and it arrived two days later.
To read from iOS, I had to download a custom app from the App Store. That worked adequately. I could read from my iPad and transfer files to the OTG thumbdrive.
So is it another fake?
Short answer no.
Initial test shows that 128Gb space is genuine. However performance wise it's quite slow.
In conclusion, it's genuine. But I'm probably going to use it just to backup temporary files like my TV shows/movies and temporary transfer medium on my other device like projector or TV. It's okay. You get what you pay for. I needed at least one thumbdrive (I lost all my others) so this will do quite nicely. It's especially useful for clearing up and backing up my limited 16Gb iPad of pictures.

One of the main reasons why new services like ZeptoExpress comes to light and are created.
I remember listening to a radio interview how CEO and founder of ZeptoExpress was so disappointed with "fast" delivery courier services like GDEX that he started a whole new company just to address the shortcomings he saw from that niche industry. Now that ZeptoExpress and many other similiar services have taken off I see now that it was a sensible if not ingenious decision.
Sort of like the Taxis vs Uber. One of these days GDEX will go the way of the dinosaurs if they don't improve their service. (Yes I think they might still have a chance, albeit slim). Otherwise they will be replaced with newer, better and faster services.
