Nokia Lumia 720 Review

Nokia Lumia 720 Review

Nokia has had so many new releases in the recent past, that it is tough for the biggest mobile enthusiasts to keep track of all the new models in the Lumia range of smartphones. Ever since Lumia 920 (along with Lumia 820) was announced back in September 2012, we’ve seen multiple new WP8 devices by Nokia, clearly aimed at addressing […]

 
     
 
 

Micromax Canvas 3D A115 Review

Micromax Canvas 3D A115 Review    

Ah, the third dimension! It’s been conquered in cinema theaters and on television screens, and encroached the smartphone arena a while ago. And while the technology has its naysayers, it’s here to stay, at least on the big screen. On phones however, it’s a different set of rules that come into play in deciding how well it’s received (not to […]

     
 
 

Samsung Galaxy S4 Review: a Smartphone that Packs it all

Samsung Galaxy S4 Review: a Smartphone that Packs it all    

What’s the formula for success? Clearly, Samsung knows a thing or two about this, having followed a similar strategy for its Galaxy S, S2 and S III smartphones – each model a bigger success than its predecessor. And with its latest flagship, the Galaxy S4, the Korean manufacturer hasn’t broken the mold, and is attempting to follow the same tried and tested route […]

     
 
 

Asus FonePad Review

Asus FonePad Review

While we can’t think of any good reason to put a 7-inch device to your face, clearly, manufacturers think along different lines. The Asus FonePad, not to be confused with the same outfit’s PadFone, is a 7-inch Android slate that comes with full voice calling capabilities. And while it’s definitely not the first one to do so, it’s notable because […]

 
     
 
 

Lenovo IdeaPhone S890 Review

Lenovo IdeaPhone S890 Review

It feels strange to try out a smartphone bearing the Lenovo badge – being a name traditionally associated with laptops and all-in-one PCs. The manufacturer has a new range of smartphones out, and we have with us the IdeaPhone S890 – a mid-range 5-inch, dual-SIM handset that runs Android Jelly Bean. And though it isn’t really top-of-the-rung in terms of […]

DailyApp: Iron Man 3: The Official Game (Android, iOS): Fix this, Jarvis!

‘Tis truly written in the annals of modern entertainment – “every blockbuster film should be accompanied by a game bearing the same title.” The latest in the Iron Man film series is no exception – even as Tony Stark descended, armor and all, on the silver screen, so did his counterpart on Android and iOS devices. And he did so […]

Daily App: Cut The Rope: Time Travel (iOS, Android) – Om Nom, Twice Over!

When it comes to titles that made the handset a viable gaming device, Cut The Rope enjoys the kind of status that Angry Birds does. The game has won over millions of users with its physics-bases simplicity and yes, the sheer adorability of its protagonist, the frog-like Om Nom. For those who know the game not (alas, alas for them), […]

     
 
 

Huawei Ascend G510 Review: A Value-for-Money Device

Huawei Ascend G510 Review: A Value-for-Money Device

In the face of flagships flaunting drool-inducing specs and mind-boggling features, it’s easy to overlook devices at the lower end of the smartphone spectrum. Just as gargantuan signboards and full-page newspaper advertisements peddle handsets costing upwards of Rs 35k ($650), it’s the budget and mid-range devices that actually sell in larger numbers and deliver value for money. And thankfully, specs […]

Daily App: Facebook Home (Android): Are You Moving in?

You cannot help but feel a tad sorry for Facebook Home. It has been almost a couple of weeks since Mark Zuckerberg took the wraps off it, and by and large the app has been put through the wringer (including by Yours Truly in a preview piece on this site). It has been hammered for being too Facebook-oriented, invasive, commercial, […]
