Logitech K380 multi-device keyboard review: Essential for road warriors

Smartphones and tablets these days are powerful enough to do most of the common tasks one does on a PC or a tablet. But one of the biggest pain point most face is typing on a tiny touchscreen, which deters most users, yours truly included. One solution is to have Bluetooth keyboards but they tend to be tiny and cramped, which might not give the best user experience. That was my biggest apprehension when I started using the Logitech K380 Bluetooth keyboard. More →

Asus Zenfone Max review: A smartphone that’s also a power bank

If you were to ask a smartphone owner what is the one thing they would like to see improved, more often than not, the answer would be the battery life. Charging a smartphone has become a daily chore that you simply can’t avoid. To change that, we have recently seen the likes of the Gionee Marathon M5 and Lenovo Vibe P1 launch in India boasting massive batteries. Joining the club is the Asus Zenfone Max with its mammoth 5,000mAh battery, and a set of specifications that are aimed at maximizing the battery performance. What’s more, the smartphone is also light on the pockets with a price tag of Rs 9,999. We spent a considerable time with Asus’ new smartphone, and here’s our review. More →

YU Yutopia Review: Not the flagship killer we deserve

YU signed off 2015 with its latest flagship smartphone, YU Yutopia. Touted as the ‘most powerful smartphone on the planet’, the Yutopia is perhaps the most ambitious device from Yu thus far. Priced aggressively at Rs 24,999, the Yutopia checks all the boxes for being a worthy ‘flagship killer.’ More →

Teewe Theatre Review: Beat the torrent blues

Many of us have hard drives full of movies and seasons of different shows. Yes, downloaded content can be easily shared but still hassle of looking for more physical storage is at times big turn off. Like many users I too have started to prefer media streaming apps over traditional downloads. There are several apps for movie and music streaming such as Spuul, Apple Music and Saavn among others.

Apple iPad Pro Review: The perfect iPad, almost

Apple iPad Pro Review: The perfect iPad, almost

I bought the first-generation iPad when it was launched in 2010. Five years later, it still works and is actively used by my family. For my mom, it is her only access to the Internet. My sister sketches on it, while my five-year-old niece watches her favorite YouTube videos. Since then, I have used multiple variants of the iPad, including the mini and the Air, but I never ended up using any of them daily.

For me, the iPad was dead. More →

HTC One A9 Review: A worthy mid-range Android smartphone

I was more than curious to try out the HTC One A9, the phone accused of being an iPhone 6 lookalike. HTC has been quite vocal about its feelings on the subject, but there is no denying the fact that the One A9 does look like the iPhone 6. More →
