First Impressions: CREO Mark 1 – Glassy, Glossy, Classy!

One of the most remarkable things about the launch of the Mark 1 phone by CREO was the fact that there was little talk of the design or the hardware of the device – the Bengaluru-based company is looking to make a mark (pun intended) with the software on the phone, Fuel OS, which will be regularly refreshed, justifying its […]
