Ricoh Theta Hands-on: an Awesome WiFi Camera for 360 Panoramas

There were just a few things which blew our mind here in Berlin at IFA 2013, and one of them is the Ricoh Theta WiFi camera. Smartphones have made Panorama shots really popular.

Lenovo K900 Review    

While Lenovo is yet to make an impact outside the Chinese market as a smartphone vendor, it’s leaving no stones unturned to do so.

HTC Desire 600 Dual SIM Review

The original HTC Desire, when it came out back in 2010, was a phenomenal device and many, this editor included, fell to its charms.

BlackBerry Q5 Review: BB10 for the Masses

BlackBerry Q5 Review: BB10 for the Masses    

Very recently, this editor met with the India country head of a smartphone company, and caught him using a BlackBerry Bold 9790. Intriguing, since the outfit referred to isn’t BlackBerry, but one that makes touchscreen Android devices.

As a company, Micromax has had a great run so far, and is the leading home-grown handset vendor in India in terms of market-share.

LG Optimus G Pro Review

LG Optimus G Pro Review    

When it comes to mobile phones, LG’s always been a bit of a dark horse. It’s had quite a few gems in the past, and we’ll be glad to jog your memory. How about the one with that superlative camera, the Viewty, or those enticingly designed Chocolate models? LG’s also been a step ahead of most in terms of innovation […]

Samsung Galaxy Mega 5.8 (GT-I9152) Review    

The bigger, the better, right? If you follow this maxim, you may have noticed that the smartphone world is moving along the same path. It may come as a surprise, but Dell was really one of the pioneers in the large-screened smartphone category, or phablets as some like to call them, with its 5-inch Streak. However, due to various reasons, […]
