And even as its […]

BlackBerry’s inability to find the perfect device for the “budget smartphone” segment has been touted as one of the reasons for the brand’s decline in recent years.

Vivo V5 Plus Review: Ye Selfie Supremo!

Love it or hate it, but only the very naive would deny that this is the age of the selfie.

Lenovo Yoga Book Review: Ecstatic, Erratic – The Harvey Dent of Two-In-Ones

Remember Harvey Dent? The charismatic district attorney of Gotham City (yeah, yeah, THE Gotham City where you find THE Batman) has a traumatic experience and thanks to a mutilated face, goes mad, and becomes a criminal known as Two-Face.
