Redmi 1S Camera Review: The Best Smartphone Camera in its Price Segment    

The Redmi 1S is the newest entry to the hot and happening budget smartphone market in India. At Rs.5999 (~$99), it is cheaper than its competition like Moto E, Asus Zenfone 4 and Micromax Canvas Unite. In spite of that, the Redmi 1S carries much superior hardware specs to any of these smartphones, and that includes the Camera. The Redmi […]

Review: LG G3: Is Display Magic Enough?

Review: LG G3: Is Display Magic Enough?

Releasing a great tech product can be a bit of a mixed blessing. Yes, the initial acclaim (and the sales that follow) can be very gratifying, but as time passes, the question looms on the horizon: now, can you do something like that again? It is a question that many companies struggle to answer. And after the praise earned by […]

Not often that you see us at Technology Personalized reviewing a bluetooth speaker. It’s not that we don’t want to, but we hardly come across something different and cool enough to catch our attention. Logitech X100 is one such Bluetooth speaker which caught our interests and we sprung on to it to review. But does it have enough to merit […]

 
     
 
 

Review: Xiaomi Mi 3 – Yes, Those Specs at THAT Price

Review: Xiaomi Mi 3 – Yes, Those Specs at THAT Price

It has become a fairly frequent occurrence of late. The sound of tech jaws hitting the turf in surprise on hearing relatively low prices of devices that boast decent hardware. We heard it when Moto unleashed the Moto G and Moto E, when Microsoft showed off the Lumia 630 and when Asus paraded the ZenFone 5. But none of those […]

 
     
 
 

Review: Asus ZenFone 5: Taking on – and Beating – the Moto G?

Review: Asus ZenFone 5: Taking on – and Beating – the Moto G?

Verily it is the season of devices which deliver dollops of superb performance at relatively low prices. We have already seen the Moto G and the Lumia 630 do just that, pretty much redefining what we can expect from a sub USD 200-225 device. And now, Asus has thrown the ZenFone 5 into the same ring – claiming to deliver […]

LG G Pro 2 Review: a Great Alternative to the Galaxy Note 3    

The LG G Pro 2 is a follow up to the last year’s Optimus G Pro phablet, and is now much faster, feels nicer, has an improved camera and a bigger display, and runs a newer version of Android. But the idea is still the same – a really big device which tries to blur the line between a smartphone […]

Lava Iris X1 Review – Great Looks Let Down by Average Performance    

Ever since Motorola jumped into the budget smartphone arena, local OEMs like Micromax, Karbonn and Lava have been busy releasing Moto E alternatives. Not that they didn’t have smartphones in this price range before, but these are now running the latest OS (Android KitKat) with decent hardware. The Iris X1 is Lava’s answer to Moto E and Micromax Canvas Unite […]

     
 
 

App Review: Yahoo Aviate Launcher (Android): A Launcher that Changes with Time

App Review: Yahoo Aviate Launcher (Android): A Launcher that Changes with Time

Contextual launchers or launchers that change as per location and time rather than on any tinkering by you, seem to be the rage these days. We saw Nokia using the concept in its very bare-bones Z launcher, which focused more on speed and simplicity, while sacrificing customization options. Yahoo! has however, chosen to blend these three together in its Aviate […]

     
 
 

Wafer NFC Tags: Affordable Yet Highly Customizable [Review]

Wafer NFC Tags: Affordable Yet Highly Customizable [Review]    

What’s so great about NFC Tags? They have been around for years now, and still hardly anyone uses them. It’s not like not many phones come with NFC. Most mid-to-high end Android phones come with NFC support, but the usage of NFC tags is restricted to some large events or dark rooms of few nerds. One of the most important […]
