    Honor 8 Lite First Impressions: A good-looking mid-range contender

    The Honor 8 has been our favorite smartphone with dual-rear camera setup in the sub-Rs 30,000 price range, offering a compact form factor, capable hardware and good camera and overall performance. The company’s latest smartphone, the Honor 8 Lite, is an affordable variant of the Honor 8 that misses out on the dual-rear camera setup. Priced at Rs 17,999, it does retain front and back glass design, metal frame, and comes with a decent hardware on board. Here are our first impressions of the Honor 8 Lite. More →

  • सोनी Xperia XZs स्मार्टफोन रिव्यु: क्या सोनी का ये प्रीमियम कैमरा फ़ोन एक बार फिर से उपभोक्ताओं को सोनी की ओर आकर्षित करेगा?

    सोनी Xperia XZs स्मार्टफोन रिव्यु: क्या सोनी का ये प्रीमियम कैमरा फ़ोन एक बार फिर से उपभोक्ताओं को सोनी की ओर आकर्षित करेगा?

    सोनी का स्मार्टफ़ोन बाज़ार पर जो कण्ट्रोल था वह पिछले कुछ समय में काफी तेज़ी से गिरा है। हालाँकि सोनी अभी भी बाज़ार में अपने आप को कायम रखे हुए हैं, और इसने स्मार्टफ़ोन का निर्माण अभी तक बंद नहीं किया है। और इसके लिए तो सोनी को काफी धन्यवाद अदा करना चाहिए कि वह अभी भी स्मार्टफ़ोन सेंसर्स का निर्माण करने में लगा है। इसी को सोनी ने अपने स्मार्टफ़ोन में अभी भी जारी रखा है हालाँकि अन्य स्मार्टफ़ोन कम्पनियां आसानी से ऐसा नहीं कर पाती हैं। इसके अलावा एक बाद सोनी की जो मुझे काफी चुभती है वह यह है कि इसके स्मार्टफ़ोन की कीमत बहुत अधिक होती है। और आपको ये भी बता दें कि अपने पिछले कुछ स्मार्टफोंस से कंपनी इतना कुछ भी नहीं कर पाई है। More →

    Sennheiser HD 4.40 BT Review: Quality wireless audio, but is it worth the price?

    For all of the headphone manufacturers that have products available today, only a handful have the distinction of offering quality, performance and value for money. Sennheiser is one such brand, with a wide product range that covers a wide range of prices from affordable to premium. It’s also among the older audio manufacturers around, having been in the business of audio manufacturing since 1945. More →

    Sony Xperia XZs Review: Can this premium camera phone win back customers for Sony?

    Sony Xperia XZs Review: Can this premium camera phone win back customers for Sony?

    Sony’s hold on the smartphone market may have fallen drastically, but the Japanese company is still firmly present and continues to develop and manufacture its devices. And thanks to its continuing development in the field of smartphone sensors, Sony continues to have certain advantages in its smartphones that other manufacturers simply don’t have the technology to replicate. However, Sony’s phones are also ridiculously overpriced, and we haven’t been thrilled with its last few devices. More →

    The Sennheiser HE 1 is Rs 45 lakhs worth of luxury personal audio, complete with theatrics and powerful sound

    The Sennheiser HE 1 is Rs 45 lakhs worth of luxury personal audio, complete with theatrics and powerful sound

    In a world where you can get a decent pair of functional headphones at under Rs 1,000, the Sennheiser HE 1 might come across a tad ridiculous. After all, would you really spend Rs 4,500,000 on a pair of headphones? If you had that kind of money to spend, wouldn’t you buy yourself a fully equipped Mercedes Benz, or perhaps even a small flat?

    Smartron srt.phone Review: A smartphone tribute to Sachin Tendulkar

    Smartron burst onto the scene last year with the t.phone, an affordable flagship device that had its fair share of issues. Another key talking point for the company was its famous brand ambassador, former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.

    Samsung Galaxy S8+ Review: It’s glorious, but with some caveats

    Samsung Galaxy S8+ Review: It’s glorious, but with some caveats

    If you’re lucky enough to have no limitation to your budget for a new smartphone, what do you buy? The options are fairly limited, since not a lot of devices can truly claim to be the complete package. If you’re a power user and want the pure Android experience, you’ll probably want the Google Pixel or Pixel XL. If you’re looking at simple sophistication, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are for you. But if it’s a feature-packed all-round Android experience you seek, that’s where the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ come in. More →

    Tekfusion Twinwoofers M 2 Review: Punching above its weight

    The affordable headphones segment has traditionally been dominated by a few names, with brands such as Philips, Panasonic, Sony and Sennheiser being the go-to options for most buyers. Recent times have also seen the emergence of Chinese brands such as Soundmagic and Brainwavz, but one thing that’s definitely missing here is a noteworthy Indian name in affordable personal audio.
