Motorola Moto 360 (2nd Gen) review: The best Android Wear smartwatch gets better

Motorola set the benchmark for Android Wear smartwatches last year with the Moto 360. It was the face of Android Wear by being among the first smartwatches with a round display, metal finish and overall premium design.

Canvas 5 review: Micromax’s coming of age

Micromax’s YU may be doing well with its geeky Cyanogen-powered smartphones, but the Indian smartphone vendor hasn’t forgotten about the masses. While it has frequently launched smartphones in its Canvas range, it has been nearly two years since it launched the Canvas 4. Earlier this month however, the company launched the fifth iteration of the flagship smartphone – the Canvas 5. Unlike its predecessor which was priced close to Rs 18,000, the new smartphone is much more aligned with the current trends, and is aggressively priced at Rs 11,999. We have spent quite a bit of time with the Canvas 5, and here is our review. More →

OnePlus X review: Do not settle

OnePlus came out of nowhere last year with its sensational flagship killer, the OnePlus One, which offered high-end smartphone specifications at a third of the price most tier one brands would command. This year the company launched the OnePlus 2, which received mixed reviews. However, OnePlus had one last trick for the year - a mid-end smartphone focused on premium design and build quality. A lifestyle smartphone, if you may. Say hello to the OnePlus X. More →
