First Impressions: Micromax Canvas Selfie: Canvassing for the Selfie!

First Impressions: Micromax Canvas Selfie: Canvassing for the Selfie!

Yes, the Canvas Selfie is Micromax getting into Selfie land – as is fairly obvious from the name. And with a proper vengeance too. The company has launched phones with very powerful front facing cameras before (the Canvas Nitro had a 5.0-megapixel front facing camera while the Canvas Knight had a 8.0-megapixel one), but the company has pretty much thrown […]

Review: Classic Cut? The BlackBerry Classic Q&A

We have spent some time with the BlackBerry Classic, and must confess that we have been besieged by questions about it. So we decided to do our review in a Q&A format. Feel free to point out the questions we have failed to answer. The Passport was called so because its shaped resembled that of a US Passport. Why is […]

 
     
 
 

Yu Yureka Review: Yes, Yu Can!

Yu Yureka Review: Yes, Yu Can!

Seldom has a phone arrived in the Indian market with so much controversy. When Micromax announced its exclusive tie-up with Cyanogen (a company known for making a highly customized version of Android) and the launch of a new brand, YU, to represent it, the market had been buzzing in anticipation about what the devices under the new brand would be […]

Lenovo Vibe X2 Review: A Multi-Layered Performer!

Last year Lenovo took the wraps off a two-pronged strategy for its Vibe range of smartphones. While the Vibe Z series would be addressed at those looking for serious hardware muscle at relatively affordable prices, the Vibe X series would be targeted at the younger generation and although no weakling in the hardware department, would carry a greater accent on […]

 
     
 
 

Yureka Camera Review: Steady Performer!

Yureka Camera Review: Steady Performer!

A year ago, getting a good camera in a phone costing less than Rs 10,000 was considered a pipe dream. The Asus ZenFone 5 and Xiaomi Redmi 1S changed that perception, with cameras that delivered a very decent performance even though the devices in which they were featured did not cost a bomb. The result? Today, consumers expect decent cameras […]

Review: iPhone 6: Bigger, Better… But Not the Best iPhone

The arrival of a new iPhone has always had a touch of the ‘it was the best of times, it was the worst of times‘ about it, depending on which camp you belonged to.

At a time when OEMs are struggling to differentiate their offerings in terms of design and specifications, simply upping the MegaPixel count just won’t cut it. Sony has always been a frontrunner when it comes to smartphone cameras. Their premier flagship series, the Xperia Z line has always boasted top notch camera specs, along with interesting features.

BlackBerry Passport Review: Type ‘P’ for Productivity?

BlackBerry Passport Review:  Type ‘P’ for Productivity?

We had written earlier on how the Passport was the first device from BlackBerry in ages (perhaps even the first ever) to elicit curiosity from passers by. And there is no doubt that if one were to line up all handsets in its price point, the BlackBerry Passport would stick out. Quite simply because there has never ever been anything […]
