Review: Swipe Elite 2 – Affordable 4G Phone with Little Compromises

Review: Google Nexus 5X – A Classic Gets a Spec Boost!    

“If you can meet with triumph and disaster And treat those two strangers just the same.” We reckon the Nexus 5X would understand the sentiment that underlies those famous lines from Rudyard Kipling. Seldom has opinion about a phone swung so radically in a matter of weeks. Launched as the spiritual successor of the very successful Nexus 5, it was […]

Review: Qiku Q Terra – Just Terra-fic Value for Money!    

The element of surprise that used to accompany Chinese entrants in the Indian market has been gradually lessening.

Review: Apple Watch – The Nuanced, Artful Nudger

So permit me a slight digression into sport at the very beginning of a tech review. The game of cricket is supposed to be India’s ruling passion.

Review: Oppo R7 Plus – Bigger the Better?

Back in 2011, when Samsung launched the Galaxy Note smartphone which came with a humongous 5.3-inch display, some users and journalists were up in arms to protest this absurd size on a smartphone.

Review: Apple iPhone 6s and 6s Plus – Everything You Wanted to Know

We have been asked more questions about it than any other phone so we guess it is only fair that we structure the review of the new iPhones in the form of an extended Q&A – everything that you want to ask about the iPhone answered. We hope! Right, let’s get this out of the way first off – they […]
