  1. Huawei launched a new smartphone that defies everything we've known so far about smartphone cameras. At first, we didn't believe in the hype ourselves until we got to use the smartphone for ourselves. The P30 Pro can take pictures in almost every environment and can even take detailed images of the moon. The P30 pro is not only about offering great cameras, but it also features great design, awesome performance and impressive battery life. The P30 Pro may just be the perfect smartphone every company has been trying to make in the past decade. So, let's find out why the Huawei P30 Pro is probably the only smartphone you want to look at this year: Design & Display When it comes to the design of the smartphone the first thing you will notice is the gradient colours. We have seen the Chinese company breathe new life to smartphones with their Honor branded smartphones and the Mate 20 Pro, and it seems like the company is looking to continue that tradition. We got to use both the Aurora Blue and Breathing Crystal variants and they both looked absolutely stunning. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla When you look beyond the colours, the Huawei P30 Pro is not particularly a small device. It has a 6.47-inch display and has curved edges similar to the Mate 20 Pro. The edges on the back of the smartphone also have a curved profile giving it a much ergonomic feel that its predecessor. Overall, the design is impressive, however, the P30 Pro is quite prone to scratches on both sides. We would recommend you use the supplied cover to protect the phone from any damages you may incur overtime. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla When it comes to the display, the 6.47-inch FHD+ AMOLED display has a smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro as it does not have the same sensors for facial recognition. Face unlock does work on the P30 Pro but it isn't as reliable as the Mate 20 Pro or the iPhone XS. The display is also used as a loudspeaker instead of having a traditional grille for audio output. You may find it weird at first, however, we got used to it in a matter of days. The AMOLED display quality is excellent where the colours are vibrant and have balanced contrasts. The sharpness is also quite impressive if you like to watch movies and play games. Having said that, we did find the hue on the display on the cooler side which could be annoying for some users. Software © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The smartphone is powered by Huawei's Kirin 980 chipset that is particularly fast and works in tandem with Huawei's EMUI. Having said that, EMUI is a quite bloaty skin that is particularly not clean. Even though we've not been fond of EMUI in the past, the P30 Pro comes with some cool AI features such as an AI video editor (similar to Google Photos), scene detection features for the camera app. It even comes with digital well-being features such as a downtime feature for applications. When you reach your limit for a particular app, the screen turns grey preventing you from doing what you were meant to stop. The P30 Pro also comes with another nifty feature i.e. a Digital Car Key. Basically, you can use the P30 Pro to use as a key for select Audi cars. You can even start the engine with your smartphone. Alas, we did not get to test this feature, however, you can read up more literature about this on Audi and Huawei's website Camera © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The star attraction of the Huawei P30 Pro is its impressive camera setup. It's touted to have incredible digital photography capabilities and for good reason. The array on the back has a 40MP 27mm f/1.6 wide-angle main sensor, a 20MP ultra wide-angle 16mm f/2.2 and an 8MP 5x optical periscope zoom lens, plus a ToF lens. The zoom lens on the P30 Pro is one of the most impressive sensors we've seen as it can do image stabilisation even when zoomed in well over 10x. The P30 Pro uses OIS + EIS at the same time to achieve this feat. Of course, the quality does drop down a bit when you exceed the zooming parameters, however, it is still the best we've ever seen on a smartphone. We could even capture some very accurate and detailed shots of the moon with 50x zoom. You can see the clarity in the photo samples below. Huawei has partnered with Leica to make some of the most impressive we've ever seen. The new sensors are called SuperSpectrum sensors that use RYYB instead of the traditional RGB. Yellow has been used in place of green as it can take in both red and green lights. The sensor is capable of capturing more information and clearer images. Having said that, not everything is peachy here as when you take images of flora, there is considerable saturation which is entirely accurate when it comes to real colours. The Huawei P30 Pro is also incredible at taking low-light images, especially in the night. The light sensitivity ISO goes up to 400,000 which is completely unheard of on a smartphone. You can take some incredible night shots using the Night Mode, which works similar to what you find on Google Pixel 3. It basically takes multiple frames at different levels of exposure and then combines them into a single image. The ToF sensor basically comes in handy when you want to capture the depth or take portrait images from your smartphone. It can read objects and gets a better idea of the subject in front of the camera. The ToF sensor records how long it takes for the light to hit the object in front of the smartphone. This resulted in some awesome portrait images, however, did not work as advertised in dark environments. P30 Pro Camera Samples Performance The Huawei P30 Pro is powered by the Kirin 980 chipset which is also the Chinese company's flagship processor. In terms of RAM, the smartphone comes with 8GB of RAM and a Mali-G76 MP10 GPU for gaming. We encountered no issues when it came to the smartphone's performance and gaming was a breeze as there were no noticeable frame rate drops. We managed to play PUBG in high settings but we enjoyed playing Fortnite more due to the smooth graphics. The P30 Pro also comes with a proprietary file transfer system which basically is faster in reading/write speeds than anything we've seen so far. In terms of benchmark tests, our review unit was able to achieve a score a respectable 3292 in the single-core test while it scored 9657 in the multi-core test. Battery Life © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The P30 Pro has a 4,200 mAh battery and we managed to get 8-9 hours of screen-on time. The smartphone supports 40W fast charging and 15W wireless charging. Much like the Mate 20 Pro, you can even turn on the reverse wireless charging feature to charge other devices such as the new AirPods or the Galaxy Buds. The battery life on the P30 Pro is probably one of the best we've seen on an Android smartphone. The P30 Pro easily lasted more than 17 hours on a single charge and our usage included heavy gaming, GPS navigation, texting, internet browsing and even reverse wireless charging at times. The Final Say As smartphones get increasingly saturated, there are only a few fields left where it can be improved upon. Companies keep trying to improve mobile photography or performance or battery life but often sacrifice at least one of these key features. Having said that, the P30 Pro offers all of these features and do them well. The Huawei P30 Pro does offer the best camera on a smartphone right now and is genuinely a jack of all trades. In some cases, it's even a master of one such as low-light photography. When it comes to competition, only the Pixel 3 comes into mind that can stand up to the P30 Pro when it comes it mobile photography. For Rs 71,9990; you get the latest tech with awesome performance and extraordinary cameras.
  2. Apple has updated its line of smart battery cases for the current generation on iPhones and the Cupertino giant has not only refined them but made them work in the favour of iPhones. The iPhone XR already has an impressive battery life and with the addition of the new Smart Battery Case, we were astonished as to how many hours our iPhones lasted. We got the smart battery case for the iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR and couldn't be happier with its performance. The new iPhone Smart Battery Case costs Rs 11,900 in India and here's our detailed analysis to let you know why it's worth it. How Does It Look? © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Apple follows a similar design ethos as the original Smart Battery Case. However, there are a few design features that have changed from before. It has the same soft silicone material as the normal covers but has changed ergonomically. It has micro-fibre in the inside so that it keeps your iPhone clean and now has a light that lights up when you charge the case separately. The hump at the back is now evenly distributed and extends to the bottom of the case. At the front, Apple has also removed the chin so that you can now use gestures easily to navigate on your iPhone. The top end of the Smart Battery Case is bendable which you use to slip in your iPhone. Do make sure that you slide in the phone rather than popping it in as you can damage the lightning port inside the cover. Having said that the Smart Battery Case is refined ergonomically, the case does make your phone heavier. It's also quite thick which can be an issue for people who like to wear tight fitted jeans/bottoms. How Does It Work © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Smart Battery Case is integrated with iOS and you can see the status of your battery on the lock screen or on the battery widget. The Smart Battery Case has a dedicated Lightning port which means you can charge the case and iPhone at the same time. The case offers Lightning Passthrough which makes it easier to charge both devices at the same time. You should note that it will charge the iPhone first and then the Smart Battery Case. You can even fast charge both devices as the Smart Battery Case also supports USB-PD (power delivery). You will need Apple's fast charger and USB-C to lightning cable in order for this to work. © Apple You can even charge both the case and the iPhone wirelessly as it works almost the same as it does via the wall charger. The iPhone will get the priority and then it will charge the Smart Battery Case. How's The Battery Life? When it comes to battery discharge, the Smart Battery Case keeps the iPhone charged to 100% for almost an entire day. The iPhone first consumes juice from the smart case and then starts to use its own battery when the juice on the case is depleted. This effectively made the iPhone XR last up to almost two full days (42 hours) on a single charge and the iPhone XS Max for around 38 hours. Do note that we used both the smartphones as our daily drivers that included hours of browsing, GPS navigation, a little bit of gaming and a lot of emails. If you are the kind of iPhone user who spends most of the day on your phone and your life depends on it, this accessory is a no brainer. Sure, it's expensive but it is probably the most comprehensive and reliable battery case you can get. It's integrated with iOS and has smart charging features that you won't find in any third party smart battery cases. It works wirelessly and can also be charged rapidly with Apple's fast charger. iPhone cases are our favourite accessories for the phones, and if you are planning to buy one soon; why not extend your battery life while you're at it?
  3. There are some movies that are bad and then there is 'Kalank', which is so bad that people only love to troll it. 'Kalank' is one of those movies that could have just been a trailer or a short film. The story was so predictable and almost everything was given away in the trailer itself. But, people still went to watch it and we guess the only reason was to come back and make these hilarious memes. © dharma productions However, out of all the performances of Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapoor or Madhuri Dixit, it is the performance of the CGI-Ed bull that was loved by people. Although the makers put a disclaimer mentioning that no animals were harmed while filming the bullfight scene, why wasn't there any disclaimer stating "Watch it at your own risk because the CGI is bad"? © dharma productions We guess KJo loves bullfights, or maybe he wanted to take inspiration from 'Baahubali: The Conclusion'. Also, FYI, Karan Johar's Dharma Productions is the same production house that produced 'Baahubali: The Conclusion'. © arka media works Seriously what is this obsession with showing a character's strength by making them fight a bull? First it was Bhallaladeva, now it's Varun Dhawan's Zafar. But, just look at the difference between the CGI effects and VFX in both the movies. Looks like internet can't seem to get over Varun's struggle with the fake bull and have turned that particular scene into a meme. Pic 1: Expectation Pic 2: Reality#KalankReview pic.twitter.com/gQey2wYZHM — Satyam Singh (@MyFreakyTweets) April 17, 2019 Read that Kalank has a Varun Dhawan-bull fighting scene.

It seemed like I was watching TV serial. Bull fight VFX is poor. take inspiration from other directors. Feeling sorry for @Varun_dvn — Shivam jaiswal (@Shivamjaswal5) April 17, 2019
  4. Looks like the audience cannot get enough of being 'tabaah ho gaye' after watching and experiencing the magnum opus of this year, 'Kalank'. The Alia Bhatt-Varun Dhawan starrer movie is a tale of pain and love set amidst the backdrop of the pre-partition era and while many expectations have been shattered in a day, the memes cannot stop pouring on our social media feeds. Audience after watching Kalank. #KalankReview pic.twitter.com/FxGps5Bb2y — Sagar (@sagarcasm) April 17, 2019 Audience in theatre: #KalankReview pic.twitter.com/cdD93CUqEv — Bwoy Bakchod (@bwoybakchod) April 17, 2019 People are claiming they tried hard to find something they can actually like about the movie but alas, they couldn't. Audience looking for good story, plot, screenplay, entertainment in kalank. #KalankReview pic.twitter.com/bFdxBztsdv — SwatKatð (@swatic12) April 17, 2019 Also, while many loved Varun's acting, some ended up making him the meme itself. You can buy skin but not skills... #KalankReview pic.twitter.com/Hzx6vWBNK0 — ImDahDude (@Im_Dah_Dude) April 17, 2019 Pic 1: Expectation Pic 2: Reality#KalankReview pic.twitter.com/gQey2wYZHM — Satyam Singh (@MyFreakyTweets) April 17, 2019 If you still have weekend plans, do it at your own risk, we say.
  5. The very popular, albeit annoying to the level of self-destruction, Chinese video making application TikTok has been finally taken down from Google and Apple app stores in India. The (awesome) news comes after the Madras High Court prohibited its downloads on 3rd April. Now, following the direction of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, the app has been temporarily banned in the country. © Twitter The popular app which was actively used by millions of Indians to create short videos was said to contain “inappropriate content”, in a petition filed by senior advocate S Muthukumar. He further stated that children using the app were vulnerable to potential paedophiles using the application, and sought an immediate ban on the use of TikTok. © Justdial While there is strong merit in those allegations, we must recall that Indonesia also temporarily blocked TikTok last year, saying that it contained pornography and blasphemous content. Perhaps it is really time for TikTok to take a step back and think about regulating its content and privacy/security details. View this post on Instagram Comments how that vedio you like or not ???

So, true to that data, imagine the insane amount of video “content” that is being churned out on the platform on a daily basis. While some can be genuinely fun to look at (only once in a while), most other videos are pure torture to the beholder. While this news must be heart-breaking for Indian TikTok 'stars', the following cringey videos are all the proof we need that the ban is in all of our best interest. What did we just see?!

  6. Marvel has given us a lot of friendship goals, and not just on-screen. The entire cast, especially the OG Avengers, love each other and are always very wholesome and pure on social media. They never shy away from showing how close they are to each other. While most of the time, we're focussed on Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr and their Twitter bromance, there's someone else out there taking over RDJ's spot as the best BFF for Chris. Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans have always had such a cute friendship and it's so underrated, to be honest. But, we have to thank Mark Ruffalo for bringing it up again and getting this friendship the recognition it deserves. Recently, Mark shared this behind the scenes picture from the sets of 'Avengers: Endgame'. #FBF to our long days on the #AvengersEndgame set ð¾ @ChrisEvans Only 2ï¸â£ more weeks to go! pic.twitter.com/yNYSUhHi6v — Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) April 12, 2019 It obviously got a lot of people excited in the replies but the best reply came from Chris himself. As it should be, Chris. This is my new favorite picture. https://t.co/ZUUueSDG6b — Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) April 13, 2019 But, he didn't stop there.

  8. With just a few days left for the release of this year's biggest release, 'Avengers: Endgame', our excitement has reached its pinnacle. With each passing day our wait is only getting harder, as people continue to flood the internet with theories related to Thanos and the superheroes who are all set to 'avenge the fallen'. Marvel Studios While everyone is busy wondering what Thanos is up to in the MCU, we've got our hands on an exclusive footage of him dancing with none other than Spiderman. And not just any song, but Varun Dhawan's song 'First Class' from his upcoming movie 'Kalank'. Well, we're not cooking this up, someone actually imagined it and made a Tik Tok video out of it. Dharma Productions What's more, Thanos might be dancing on Varun Dhawan's 'First Class', but his killer moves are inspired from our beloved Psy and his MV 'Gangnam Style'. Best #firstclass ever #avengersendgame https://t.co/DevsqIzbp4 — Varun ZAFAR Dhawan (@Varun_dvn) April 13, 2019 Seriously, if this isn't the best crossover ever, we wonder what is. In fact, Varun was so impressed with this that he couldn't stop himself from sharing it on social media. Directed by Abhishek Varman, 'Kalank' also stars Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditya Roy Kapur, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt and is expected to release on April 17.
  9. People who are trying to lose weight and drop some body fat are always looking for the best thing available for fat loss. The best diet, the best fat burner, the best type of fat loss cardio, the best exercise for fat loss—anything and everything that will help achieve this. Still, nobody has yet figured out the best exercise for fat loss. Want to know the best exercise for fat loss? THERE IS NO SUCH EXERCISE. Pexels Yes, you read it right. If there was ever a best fat loss exercise and if it worked, you would see 90% of the people at the gym doing just that one single exercise. Do you see everyone in the gym doing one same exercise every time you walk in? Obviously, not! Now, let's understand what leads to fat loss: A Caloric Deficit It has two components—the food intake part and your activity levels. The food intake is the 'Energy In' and the exercises you do/lifestyle you have is a part of 'Energy Out'. The best way to increase your energy out? Simply move more. Yeah, it is as simple as that. The thing you should be focusing on is to move as much as possible and to engage as many muscle groups as possible when you hit the gym. Single body part a day? I do not think so. Your bicep/triceps day or your shoulder day? Not even that. Pexels Focus on full body movements or compound exercises that work for two to three muscle groups simultaneously instead of doing the one muscle group a day workouts. Just take a guess, what will burn more calories? A back squat which works your full body at a given time or a set of bicep curls which work two fibers of your muscle? On top of it, you also want to watch the number of calories going inside your mouth. You can do all the full body exercises, you can take all the fat burner pills, burn as many calories as you want but it won't account for anything if the number of calories you are consuming is more than the number of calories you are burning. Long story short, stop looking for best anything. Fat loss is calories in lesser than calories out at the end of the day. And if you want to burn more calories, start doing exercises that burn more calories and not one body part a day.

  10. A gaming mouse is easily one of the most recognizable gadgets in the world. From an exaggerated design with sharp corners to flashy RGB lighting, they're distinctly visible. Buying a gaming mouse, however, isn't an easy task. There are tons of factors to consider. Well, don't worry. We've gathered together some of the best gaming mice that are out there. No matter what kind of games you're into, we're sure you'll find the best gaming mouse for your needs here on our list. Logitech G502 Hero © YouTube The Logitech G502 Hero, as you can see, clearly screams gaming from any angle you look at. It's got RGB lighting, a ton of customizable buttons, 1ms latency, a jaw-dropping 16,000 DPI sensor, etc. However, this is one of those gaming mice, which you can comfortably use even when you are not gaming. Yes, it comes with adjustable weights, which you can swap out anytime when you're, say, doing a more casual task like browsing the web. Just like the Logitech G402, this one's also not for users with big hands though. But other than that, the Logitech G502 Hero is extremely popular and it's easily one of the best gaming mice out there. Price: Rs. 4,295 HyperX Pulsefire Surge © YouTube This particular gaming mouse from HyperX, a brand that's known for its headsets and other gaming accessories, is definitely worth considering if you're on the lookout for a new gaming mouse. It's a well-designed mouse that's packed with a ton of awesome features like the 16,000 DPI sensor. As we said in our review, it's very comfortable to use, both while playing games or otherwise. It natively supports Windows shortcuts and comes with cool RGB lighting. Above all, the HyperX Pulsefire Surge is easy on the pocket compared to the ones that cost upwards of Rs. 10,000. Price: Rs. 4,799 Razer Deathadder Elite © YouTube The Razer Deathadder Eite is an all-rounder when it comes to gaming mice. It comes in a simple and fantastic shape that's perfect for all sorts of grips and hand sizes. Be it for playing games, editing photos, or simply browsing the internet, the Razer Deathadder Elite won't let you down. Like, seriously. It uses a 16,000 CPI optical sensor which has 99.4% resolution accuracy and a 450 IPS rating. All the technical terms aside, it just means that this mouse will provide flawless tracking at all times. It also comes with two perfectly placed, generously sized thumb buttons. They prove to be good for all types of grips, be it palm, claw, or tip. Price: Rs. 3,899 Steelseries Sensei 310 © Steelseries The Steelseries Sensei 310 is an ambidextrous mouse, which means it's good for both left and right-handed users. It's also grippier than most other mice, which is always good for playing games. Just like its predecessor, the Sensei 310 comes with really good sensors, so you don't have to worry about any tracking issues. Since the Sensei 310 is ambidextrous, you'll get a pair of identical thumb buttons on the left and the right. Don't worry though, the shape and size of this particular mouse has been tweaked since the last one to avoid any accidental clicks. Overall, the Steelseries Sensei 310 is a really good small, light and ambidextrous mouse, which you can rely on. Price: 4,599 CORSAIR M65 Pro © YouTube The Corsair M65 Pro is a fantastic mouse for competitive FPS gaming. The highlight of this particular mouse has to be the 'Sniper' button, which essentially lowers the DPI while holding it down. Lower the DPI, the more easily you'll be able to maintain your aim at the target. It's really great for users with a claw grip, but even palm grip users will find it very compelling. The Corsair M65 Pro, just like some other mice in our list, comes with tunable weights, which can be accessed by removing the screws on the bottom. You can dislodge between one and three 6-gram weights, giving the mouse an overall mass that's between 97 grams and 115 grams. Price: 3,599
  11. Racing games are one of the most popular forms of time-pass when you want to keep yourself entertained. This is especially true when you game on your smartphone. There's a plethora of racing games on the App Store and Play Store which makes it confusing for people to know which one is the best. Some games are casual enough to keep you busy for a while, and some premium driving experiences that are very close to console level graphics. Here are five of our favourite racing games for your smartphones. 1. Absolute Drift If you love drifting and want to play a game specifically designed for that experience, look no further than Absolute Drift. The game requires you to practise a bit if you need to get the perfect drift around those corners. If you happen to own a compatible controller, the experience is even better and rewarding. The game is available on both iOS and Android so you can play this game on the platform of your choice. 2. Asphalt 9: Legends This is a free-to-play game that's available on both iOS and Android digital stores and has microtransactions inbuilt. The game provides a more realistic approach to the game when compared to previous installations. Gameplay is exciting and full of energy, a combination you always expect from an arcade racing game. 3. Rush Rally 3 If you're a fan of rally racing, we would suggest downloading 'Rush Rally 3' as it is your best option for smartphones right now. Available on both iOS and Google Play, the game is quite challenging and is full rally racing simulator. Even though the game has touch controls, we suggest you use a Bluetooth controller to play this game for the best experience. 4. Red Bull Air Race 2: The Mobile Game 'Red Bull Air Race 2' is probably the only game you want to download if you love air-racing. The game recreates raced Red Bull hosts around the globe and you get to control you own very plane. Eat course is a real-life recreation of the actual tournament. 5. GRID Autosport This game is actual proof that console-level racing games can be ported to smartphones and deliver almost the same experience. The original game first came to consoles and PC and is now available for smartphones. This is proof that AAA racing games can be handled easily by top-tier smartphones.
  12. It's been 4 years since I cut the cord and if you're looking to switch from traditional TV to streaming content, you will probably need a streaming device for your TV. Yes, you can watch content on your smartphone but nothing really beats the big screen. I personally own almost every possible streaming device that you can buy in India, in every room. If you are looking for a streaming device for your room, look no further than this list: 1. Apple TV © BCCL It's probably our go-to streaming box that supports every App out there. As a part of the Apple ecosystem, you get access to thousands of applications on Apple's App Store. Apart from applications, Apple TV can also support casual gaming and with Apple Arcade on its way, you will be able to play console-level games on this device. The Apple TV plays host to every essential app such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube and Hotstar. Apple is also launching its own video streaming service which you can read more about here. You can even get the 4K version if you own a 4K television. 2. Google Chromecast/Ultra © BCCL Chromecast is by far our favourite casting device that can take care of every streaming need. You can even mirror your Google Chrome tabs if you want to stream content from third-party sources. In fact, some of the video players on websites have direct native support for Chromecast. Applications such as Netflix, YouTube, and Hotstar can also stream content directly to Chromecast via your smart device or the Chrome browser. It even supports Google Assistant which is a nifty feature to have if you want to stream content effortlessly. Even though Google doesn't sell Chromecast Ultra officially in India, you can still get your hands on one through unofficial channels. It supports 4K streaming across all applications. 3. Amazon Fire TV © Amazon It's probably our least favourite streaming device on our list as we find the operating system clunky and slow. It does not have native support for YouTube, which is a big negative point for us. The original FireStick TV's remote is also notorious for draining out batteries extremely quickly. Make sure you always have spare batteries or rechargeable batteries handy. In terms of content, FireStick TV does have native support for Amazon Prime Video, Netflix and Hotstar. You can even use Kodi to manage your own library if you know what you're doing. There's also a 4K version available to buy which takes the viewing experience up by a notch. 4. Nvidia Shield TV © Nvidia Nvidia Shield is a device that is focused on streaming video but also appeals to gamers who own an Nvidia GPU. Nvidia Shield TV supports 4K resolution and HDR streaming based on the Android TV platform. You can play games from Android's app store or stream your PC games over WiFi. For 4K streaming, it supports all the major OTT services besides Hotstar.
  13. You may have heard that scientists finally unveiled the first picture of a black hole yesterday, unless you were inside a black hole yourself. The image is groundbreaking news for mankind but of course, we came across some hilarious memes that stole the thunder. A team of astronomers revealed the image yesterday in a press conference and the image was captured using radio telescoped called the “Event Horizon Telescope.” The black hole measures 40 billion km across and is three million times the size of our planet. Having said that, anything that breaks the internet has to be fodder to memes and hilarious tweets that's now become a norm. If you want to know more about the black hole image, you can read about it in detail here. As for now, it's time to glance over some of the funniest memes and jokes we could find on the internet: Me: mum take a nice picture of us Mum: how does it work Me: just press the button fgs Mum: pic.twitter.com/iEePmsxv5N — Rosie Percy (@rosiepercy) April 10, 2019 All my relationships ... in one picture.#BlackHole pic.twitter.com/twH1AvQxTc — Ananya Bhattacharya (@ananya116) April 10, 2019 I am sure the spatial resolution of the #blackhole images will get better in future. pic.twitter.com/uN9lmN9fGe — Fakhar Khalid (@FakharKhalid) April 10, 2019 Oh look a photo of a black hole.....wait a damn minute....middle earth ?!?! #BlackHole pic.twitter.com/TOXZlPrxJc — Rick (@KickAssTakeNaps) April 10, 2019 © Twitter © Twitter The third eye ðï¸ looks so similar to Black Hole discovered today ð pic.twitter.com/ITVDN2EcLt — Navroop Singh (@NavroopSingh_) April 10, 2019 Profile picture vs tagged #EHTBlackHole https://t.co/YK5gGqX694 pic.twitter.com/GyX6CSV8nd — Evening Standard (@EveningStandard) April 10, 2019 The photo of the black hole is blurry, but if you zoom and enhance then you can see its full destructive power pic.twitter.com/c1wPV0vmrC — Mark Doherty (@dohertymark) April 10, 2019 The internet is busy transforming the first picture of a black hole into jokes and memes.

  14. Following an overwhelming defeat against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) earlier in the tournament, Mumbai Indians (MI) had revenge on their minds when they hosted the Preity Zinta co-owned franchise at the Wankhede stadium on 10th April. A solid top-order batting performance by KXIP had led to an embarrassing eight-wicket loss for the three-time IPL champions at the PCA stadium. And Mumbai knew it wasn't going to be easy beating them at the Wankhede either. A 116-run opening stand between KL Rahul and Chris Gayle got Punjab to a flyer. And then, while Rahul notched up his maiden IPL hundred, Gayle's blazing willow saw him amassing 36-ball 63 as the visitors romped their way to a competitive total of 197 runs. Following Punjab's carnage, Mumbai, in the absence of Rohit Sharma, knew they needed something special if they were to avenge their defeat. Twitter/@IPL And, special it was from stand-in skipper Kieron Pollard who finally announced his arrival in the IPL this season. Leading from the front, the big West Indian, promoting himself to the No. 4 spot, arguably produced one of the most entertaining innings of the tournament this season. The 31-year-old went hammer and tongs at the KXIP bowling attack, slamming a blistering 31-ball 83 which was decorated with three fours and a staggering 10 sixes. Kieron Pollard last 26 balls: 6 6 4 0 6 0 1 6 6 2 1 0 1 6 1 0 6 1 4 0 6 6 1 6 4 W Brilliant innings under pressure! — IPL (@Icc_power) April 10, 2019 Though he couldn't finish the game for his side, falling to Ankit Rajpoot's short of a length delivery in the final over, Pollard's game-changing knock inflicted a three-wicket loss on Punjab and overshadowed the batting geniuses of Rahul and Gayle. Speaking at the post-match presentation, Pollard said: “I would like to thank God. Need to thank him for giving strength to me for doing the things that I do. Also, love to thank my wife, it's her birthday today and I want to dedicate this to her”. Twitter/@IPL “We finished on the right end of the result and thanks to God for that to. Obviously, Rohit is the captain of the team and it was only a precautionary measure for the team. He should be back in the next game. I would gladly give it back to him and field at the boundary, while also thinking of what to contribute to the team,” he concluded. After his 'Man of the Match' performance, the cricket fans were left in awe of Pollard's blitzkrieg which took the social media by storm. Kieron Pollard is back. Back at his best. Sensational batting. Great finish.... — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) April 10, 2019 POLLAAAAARRRRDDD welldone big fella..

  15. There isn't a better person whose ears we would like to talk off with our nonsense on any given day. No other individual we would rather share a beer with, or haul-ass with when being chased by the traffic cops for not wearing helmets. And definitely, there isn't another one like them who would stick around regardless of all the messy brawls, broken promises and cancelled plans over the years. © Vinod Chopra Films That is how it is with best friends, you will mess up more often than you would want to admit, give each other a hard time over a number of things, yet stick up for each other whenever it comes to you two against the rest of the world. And if you ask us, that is the biggest charm about having a best friend. You can be your best with them, but you can also be your worst, and they would still stick around simply for the “sake of old times” (no, simply because it's you). © Excel Entertainment That is exactly what two friends roaming the streets of Mumbai on a bicycle said about friendship, in not so many words. And that was all the inspiration we needed to fill your feed with a sappy, but heartfelt story on why we let our best friend(s) sweet talk us into the most stupid stuff and get away with it, all the freaking time. For now, read what these two friends of 15 years told Humans of Bombay about their adventures. You see, that is just how we have felt on innumerable occasions - after getting our asses whooped for being stupid enough to give in to each other's crazy ideas, with nothing to help us out of the soup we landed ourselves in after. Yet, regardless of the greatest mess we whip up together, there seems to be no going back after a point of time. We always seem to find our way back to each other, with or without the differences and all-out fights that plague us every now and then. © T-Series A 2009 study has also shown that most friendships last about seven years, anything beyond them and you can be sure that your best friend is here to stay for the long haul. Yet, it doesn't make sense why we always get “sweet-talked” into stupid shit when it comes to them. Actually let us rephrase that, why do we let ourselves be sweet-talked into stupid shit when it comes to them, even when we know full well that “it isn't a good idea”? © T-Series Consider these 5 reasons: 1. They Really Are Our “Brother/Sister From Another Mother”. Now you can't screw that up even if you tried, can you? Actually, you can. Don't date their ex. Just don't. 2. They Get You. As sappy as that might sound, it's a fact none of us can deny. Our best friend gets us in a way nobody else does, and this fact makes them so darn special. 3. You Get To Let Your Weirdness Out, Unapologetically. Think of the craziest, funniest and most ludicrous thoughts or ideas you ever came up with. Who was that one person besides yourself who knows about it, and is still friends with you? Yeah. © Rajkumar Hirani Films 4. You Care, Respect And Look Out For One Another In Your Own Way. There exists this unsaid pact that best friends always maintain wherein even when we can constantly berating one another, we still maintain a sense of respect towards them and look out for each other in our own way. 5. But Most Of All Because… You want to do it just as much as them because it's your friend and anything and everything you do with them is fun!
  16. Running a marathon isn't easy. Unlike your regular morning runs or evening sprints, running (and finishing!) a marathon requires an enhanced level of stamina, endurance, and commitment. Of course it also requires you to harbour the knowledge of which marathons you ought to be running in to begin with. After all, you can't just expect to leave your house and randomly chance upon a marathon you'd want to take part in! Well fortunately for all you avid runners out there, we at MensXP have done the required research for you, and as such, have come up with a list of the best marathons in India. So whether you're a beginner or expert at running, here are the top marathons in India that you need to check out. 1) The Hell Ultra Race © Official Instagram / @thehellrace Now here is a marathon that should pretty much be on every runner's bucket list. The Hell Ultra race is a truly unique sprint that will challenge your skills and endurance levels like never before. As you run through five mountain passes, reach an elevated height of 9350 meters, and encounter Himalayan rivers and streams on your way, you are guaranteed to indulge in an experience that you won't be able to forget anytime soon. Besides making you run a truly one-of-a-kind marathon on the Manali - Leh Highway, the Hell Ultra is also going to take your fitness game to new heights, making it one of the most exciting upcoming marathons in India that you ought to know about. When: 15th - 23rd June, 2019 Where: Manali - Leh Total length: 480 kilometers 2) The Solang Sky Ultra Race © Official Facebook / @thellrace Fair warning, this race is not for the feign hearted. After all, the Solang Sky Ultra race is considered to be India's only mountain running event. Don't let the total length of this marathon - approximately 60 kilometers - fool you into believing that it's going to be a cakewalk. In reality, you'll have to be properly prepared, both physically AND mentally, before you run this marathon. The run will take you to an altitude of 3,650 meters, and will be the ultimate test of your strength and endurance. Before you decide to run this extreme race, make sure you are carrying the proper equipment and gear. This includes two pairs of trail running shoes, a wind proof jacket, sunglasses, hydration pack, headlamp (with battery cells), reflective vest, and a whistle. When: 6th October 2019 Where: Solang Valley Total length: 60 kilometers 3) Uttarkashi 2019 © Shutterstock If you wanted to run a marathon that also brought you just a little bit closer to your spiritual side, then this is the perfect race for you. Making you run along River Ganga, peaceful villages, and lush hills, with the Himalayan mountains giving you company, running this marathon will also require you to climb a total of 34,000 feet! While the main marathon will let you run for up to 220 kilometers, those wanting to opt for a less exhausting run can opt for the 160 kilometers or 100 kilometers variants instead. When: 6th - 8th September, 2019 Where: Rishikesh - Dehradun Total length: 220 kilometers 4) The Kaveri Trail Marathon © www.myracephotos.in If you wanted to run a marathon and get close to Mother Nature at the same time, then you'd be pleased to know about the Kaveri Trail Marathon. As the name suggests itself, running this marathon will get you close to River Kaveri, but that's not all as you will also get to run past the Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary, and even natural waterfalls! There are three different versions of this race that you could opt for, including the 10 kilometers, 21.1 kilometers, and 42.2 kilometers variants. The best part about this marathon, however, is all the wildlife you'll get to encounter along the way - including wild ducks, wooley cranes, and even otters!! This is, undoubtedly, one of the best marathons in India that you could take part in. When: TBA Where: River Kaveri, Ranganathittu Bird Sanctuary Total length: 11.5 kilometers 5) The Delhi Half Marathon © Official Facebook / @runadhm The Delhi Half Marathon is probably the most popular marathons in the country. In fact, if there is one marathon that most runners (even beginners) would have participated in, it's this one. As such, it makes for the perfect option for all those who are either looking to run their first marathon, or just want to take part in a run that won't be too challenging. Having first begun in 2005, taking part in it has become no less than a ritual, one which not just Delhitites, but people from around the country excitedly indulge in. When: 20th October, 2019 Where: New Delhi Total length: 21 kilometers 6) The Mumbai Half Marathon © Official Facebook / @MumbaiHM Just like its Delhi counterpart, the Mumbai Half Marathon too is incredibly popular and attracts a large number of participants every year. The 2019 edition will be its fourth iteration, and is almost certain to be bigger and better than ever before. And just like the Delhi Half Marathon, the best part about this run is how almost anyone (above the age of 18 that is!) can participate in it.

  17. When it comes to royal Indian fashion, the first name that comes to our mind is that of Padmanabh Singh, the Maharaja of Jaipur. Also known as 'Pacho', the 20-year-old King has been making quite an impact in the international fashion arena. Right from setting the ramps of Milan on fire, to being the fiercest royal fashionista, he is the epitome of royal elegance. He recently posted pictures of the Holika Dahan that took place at the City Palace, Jaipur, and he looks straight out of an opulent Bhansali flick in them. Take a look. © Instagram/Pachojaipur © Instagram/Pachojaipur We are in love with the ivory sherwani paired with the silk white churidar, along with the royal safa accentuated with a red Bandhani dupatta. Also, the golden buttons and brooch, along with the bejewelled purple sword-sheath, are perfection. © Instagram/Pachojaipur © Instagram/Pachojaipur His outfit, honestly, is a reflection of the inimitable grandeur that the Indian royalty is all about. The splendour of the palace, in all its sheer luxuriousness, is perfectly mirrored in the way the Maharaja has clothed himself. © Instagram/Pachojaipur © Instagram/Pachojaipur The huge fire of Holika Dahan, along with the royal fireworks, is a reminder of the glory that pervaded all throughout India once upon a time. © Instagram/Pachojaipur © Instagram/Pachojaipur © Instagram/Pachojaipur © Instagram/Pachojaipur All we can say is, nothing can match the magnificence of these rituals, and the clothing that were a part and parcel of the proceedings.
  18. The Huawei P30 Pro and P30 have finally made its way to India where “P” denotes the meaning for photography.

The ToF sensor is capable of delving more accurate bokeh picture. The smartphone also comes with a 32-MP selfie camera. Specifications Roundup © Huawei The P30 Pro has a 6.47-inch OLED Display and a 6.1-inch OLED display. It has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and has a teardrop design which houses the selfie camera. The smartphone comes with an all-glass finish with a gradient design when it comes to colours. The P30 Pro is powered by Huawei's Kirin 980 SoC and runs on Android Pie 9.1 out of the box. The P30 Pro as a 4,200 mAh battery and it also supports reverse wireless charging, just like the Mate 20 Pro and some other devices like the Galaxy S10.

  19. The insane wait to watch the final season of 'Game Of Thrones' is about to end in a week's time when we finally witness some crazy action. Naturally the premiere has happened and the cast is pretty active on social media, contributing to the buzz around the digital premiere. Over the weekend, the good folks at 'SNL' got Kit Harington to host the night and needless to say, it was just as we expected. The best part, however, was the cast members, especially Emilia Clarke budging in and asking for spoilers, which Kit extensively refused to reveal. Adding to humour was the Night King himself asking if they could be friends and Kit's real life wife who had some fun questions to ask as well. Kit is ððð revealing how @GameofThrones ends. #SNL pic.twitter.com/cVyUmFbsGT — Saturday Night Live - SNL (@nbcsnl) April 7, 2019 Now isn't that a big tease because as the days go by, all we want is for 15th April to arrive soon so we can finally get some visual action. Until then, this was the best pre-watch for sure!
  20. Apple has officially cancelled its AirPower wireless charging mat, however, the demand for the product is still quite high. The charging mat was a bold wireless charger by Apple that would charge an iPhone, AirPods and Apple Watch by placing them anywhere on the mat. Currently, devices have to be placed on wireless chargers with a specific orientation in order for it to work. However, many companies have figured out a way to charge multiple devices at once ever since AirPower was announced. Just because you can't get your hands on the AirPower doesn't mean you can't enjoy wireless charging for multiple devices. Here are the best AirPower alternatives you can buy in India right now: 1. Baseus Smart 2 In 1 Wireless Charge © Basues This 10-watt wireless charging mat can simultaneously charge two smartphones and an Apple Watch. It's available in all white and is compatible with any Qi-certified device. It comes with Overload protection which means you don't have to worry about overheating. 2. Samsung Wireless Charger Duo © YouTube The Wireless Charger Duo consists of a stand and a pad, allowing you to charge two devices at once. Both spots support fast-charging which is always a plus to have. It is also Qi-certified which means it can charge any device that supports Qi wireless charging. 3. Boost Up Charging Dock By Belkin © Belkin The new wireless charging dock by Belkin can wirelessly charge your smartphone, Apple Watch and has additional USB-A port to charge other devices. It comes with a 45W AC adapter and can charge all iPhone models at 7.5W. The Apple Watch will be carted on 5W/1A via the USB port. 4. Nillkin Gemini Dual Fast Wireless Charger Charging Pad © Nillkin The Nillkin Gemini wireless charger can juice up two devices at the same time and has support for wireless charging. It can charge the iPhone with an output of 7.5W whereas, for Qualcomm devices, it goes up to 10W.
  21. You don't necessarily need to have deep pockets to buy a good flagship phone in 2019. There are some amazing options out there from the likes of OnePlus, Honor, etc. Heck, even Apple proved that with the iPhone XR last year, that offered almost all flagship features at a reasonable price. Now this year, it's Samsung who's trying to do the same with its Galaxy S10e. Yes, it's a phone for those who envy all the flagship features of the Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus but aren't willing to shell out big bucks. Well, if you are that person, then I am here to tell you that it's a great idea. I say that because I've spent the better part of the last few weeks using the Galaxy S10e as my daily driver, and I absolutely love it. In fact, I think this is the best Galaxy model for most people who're looking to buy one of the newer Galaxy S10 phones. Let me tell you why: Design & Display Of course, the first thing that I am going to talk about is the size of this phone. The Galaxy S10e is a small and compact phone. It's very much a one-handed device, and my palm completely wraps around it. It's one of those cute little phones that are really hard to find these days. Everyone who I handed over this phone to, was surprised by how tiny and compact it is. Just perfect! © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla From the power button/ fingerprint scanner on the right-hand side of the phone to the volume rockers and the Bixby button on the left, I was easily able to reach all of them without any issues. Trust me, that's not something I can say for all the phones in 2019. And before I proceed, let me acknowledge the fact that this phone has a great fingerprint scanner. Easy to reach and amazingly fast. I'd also like to point out that the Galaxy S10e, because of the smaller form factor, makes it look and feel different from the bunch. That, however, isn't necessarily a bad thing. I still love the Galaxy S10e. It's a premium looking device with glass on both front and back with an aluminium frame. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla On to the front, the Galaxy S10e has a 5.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. It doesn't have WQHD+ screen resolution unlike the other two variants, but you won't really notice it. The screen looks sharp, plus it's HDR10+ certified, so it has great colour accuracy which makes it great for content consumption. And thanks to its bezel-less design, the Galaxy S10e is even smaller than the Pixel 3, which has a 5.5-inch display in comparison. Samsung managed to pull off the bezel-less design by punching a hole in the display for the front-facing camera. I honestly still find it a little distracting, but there's not a lot that you can do to avoid it besides using some clever wallpapers to hide from the home screen as I did. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla The hole-punch display or the Infinity-O display, as Samsung likes to call it, didn't really bother me that much. It's still an awesome display to consume content, be it gaming or watching Netflix, etc. If you hate it though, then sadly you'll either have to stick to a phone with a display notch or a pop-up camera module like the Vivo V15 Pro. Overall, I'd say the Galaxy S10e scores full marks in the design and display department. It looks and feels like a premium Galaxy flagship in every way, only smaller. Its pocketable size in an era of phones with massive footprints is a breath of fresh air, and I am sure you'll love it. Performance The Samsung Galaxy S10e is armed with Samsung's new Exynos 9820 along with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, which you can expand via a microSD card upto 512GB. Now, in case you're a fan of benchmarks, then let me get that out of the way before I talk about my day-to-day experience with the phone. I ran the Galaxy S10e through Geekbench 4, AnTuTu, and 3DMark, and here's how it performed - © MensXP In Geekbench, the Galaxy S10e scored a single-core score of 4,496 and a multi-core score of 10,129. It scored 322,973 in Antutu, finally scored 4,309 in 3DMark's Sling Shot Extreme test. These results, I'd say are on par with other flagship phones on the market. And that also translates to great real-world performance as well. But that's not really a surprise, is it? I am yet to have noticed a single stutter or a hint of lag. I like to give credits where it's due, so I'd like to point out that the Samsung's new OneUI is in-part responsible for that. The UI is nice and clean, and I am really happy with how far Samsung has managed to come from the old Touchwiz interface. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Even with 6GB of RAM, you'll be getting the full flagship power. I also played games like PUBG and Asphat 9, and the phone was able to run even the most demanding titles without breaking a sweat. So overall, it is safe to say that the Galaxy S10e doesn't stray far from the regular S10 or the S10 Plus's performance benchmark. You'll essentially get the same performance in, you know, a smaller package. Since we're talking about the hardware, I think it's a good time to point out the Galaxy S10e has a 3.5mm headphone and an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. Oh, and the speakers? Well, they're just as good as the ones you'll find on the standard Galaxy S10 and the Galaxy S10 Plus. Biometrics As I mentioned previously in this review, the Galaxy S10e has a traditional scanner on the side, instead of an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. Am I complaining about it? Absolutely not. In fact, I am glad that I didn't have to put up with a slower and a comparatively less accurate scanner. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla Also, the side-mounted fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy S10e is located in a perfect spot, in my opinion. It's the spot where my thumb naturally rests on the phone, making it very quick and easy to scan or even pull down my notification shade. And did I tell you that it's really fast? In case you're not a fan of a physical fingerprint scanner for some reason, then you can choose to use Samsung's face unlock to get into the phone. It's obviously not as reliable or secure, but it gets the job done too. Camera Oh yes, the cameras! Unlike the Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus, the S10e only has two rear-facing cameras. There's a 12-megapixel wide angle camera and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera for times when you want to fit more of everything into an image. It lacks the telephoto camera, but frankly, it's not something you should worry about too much. Simply put, the cameras on the S10e are fantastic. If I am being completely honest, I kinda missed shooting pictures with a Samsung phone, and it was great having it around during my testing period. © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla As you can see, all the images shot from the Galaxy S10e have plenty of detail. The photos, as usual, look nice and vivid. Samsung's image processing is also playing a huge role here to make the flowers and monuments looks a tad bit better on screen. I couldn't compare the S10e's cameras with that of the Galaxy S10 or S10 Plus, but I am sure there's not a big difference in terms of the quality. I also had a great time testing the phone's ultra-wide camera too. This ultra-wide camera, in case you're wondering, captures a 123-degree field of view, with which you can fit in more people or literally mimic what you see in front of you in the real world. The ultra-wide shots are taken with the 16-megapixel sensor, so you'll have a lot of details to play around. The front-facing camera takes great selfies too. It only has a single 10-megapixel sensor on the front, but you can use the software to fit in a few more people in the shot. The shooting modes are more less similar to what you get with the standard Galaxy S10 and the S10 Plus. There's a 'Live Focus' mode which works really well. Then there are some other interesting modes like Instagram, with which you can post the image straight to Instagram as a post or a story. Battery Life Now that I've talked about everything that's good with the phone, let me address my only real concern here: the battery life. Samsung has tucked in a 3,100 mAh battery, and all things considered, it's a little disappointing. Don't get me wrong, you'll still be able to get through a full day with moderate usage, but it's not a heavy hitter. © MensXP I'll admit, I tend to push my phones pretty hard, so I wasn't really surprised with the battery life here. During my testing, I used the phone to do all my basic tasks like playing games, using 4G LTE to do some web-browsing, mindless Instagram scrolling, watching movies, shows on Netflix, among other things. I was able to get around 4 to 4 and a half hours of screen on time, and I found myself reaching for the charger every single night. In addition to the fast wireless charging support, the Galaxy S10e also supports Samsung's new Wireless PowerShare feature, with which you can charge other wireless charging-compatible devices by placing them on the back of the device. I feel like it's a cool party trick that can come handy at times when you need to charge smaller devices like your earbuds, etc. The Final Say © MensXP/ Akshay Bhalla So, should you drop your money on the Galaxy S10e to make it your next phone? Well, if you are looking for a small and compact phone that performs well and has great cameras, then go for it. Yes, it falls well short of perfection in the battery life department, but given the fact that you're getting so much for as little as Rs. 55,990, I am willing to make that detrimental sacrifice here and recommend it. Seriously, the Galaxy S10e is only the best 'compact' phone I've tested in a long time, but it's also the best value Galaxy S model this year. And like I said, it's the Galaxy phone that most people should buy this year without the fear of missing out flagship features found on other phones.
  22. Even though they're always hidden from view and not meant for public consumption, choosing the right pair of underwear for every occasion is just as important as picking out the rest of your outfit. Making the wrong choice entails a full day of constant adjustments, uncontrollable itching, and sweat in the most uncomfortable of places. Nothing can ruin your day quite like having to dive down into your pants every so often, which is what makes underwear selection such a crucial decision. Despite what you might think, the one-size-fits-all mentality doesn't work when it comes to underwear. There is a plethora of styles, cuts, and fabric options out there to choose from, not to mention the various colours and prints you could go for. A well-stocked underwear drawer should ideally contain some of the best options in each style, allowing you to make a decision based on the day's activity. Of all the different styles out there, briefs are probably the one men are most familiar with. There is a sense of comfort and security associated with them, probably because these were what most of us wore as children. However, times have changed, and there are a lot more choices out there than the plain white variety we're all used to. Why Briefs? The most recognisable characteristics of briefs are the elastic waistband and no leg coverage. They usually extend from the waist and stop at the top of the thigh, providing excellent support to your nether regions thanks to their snug fit. This also makes them the underwear of choice for men who favour slim cut trousers or low rise jeans, as they're less prone to bunching up or rising up. They're also an excellent option if your job involves sitting at a desk for most of the day, as they end conveniently in the natural crease between your torso and your legs. Although they can't match up to boxer shorts in terms of freedom, which is why you wouldn't pick them to wear when you're lounging around at home, they're the go-to underwear style for the man on the go. With that in mind, here's our list of the best briefs for men who want to make an informed, tasteful and highly useful addition to their underwear drawer. These Are The Best Briefs For Men To Add To Your Underwear Drawer 1.

  23. Saif Ali Khan has been pulling off a rather suave formal style game since a couple of years now, and honestly, no one does it better in our opinion. The inherent 'Nawabi' swag is something that he clings to even while going out wearing shorts, so clearly, when he does go out in public all nice and proper, very few people can steal his thunder. However, that takes effort, and it shows in the way he sagaciously picks out every piece his outfits entail. He just stepped out wearing a smart semi-formal ensemble with a blue shirt and blue jeans, but the one piece that gave the outfit its inimitable edge is the belt he decided to wear with it. © Viral Bhayani From a distance, it looks like a regular brown leather belt with some embellishment and embroidery, but it's a lot more. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani The belt has a charming floral pattern with flowers of different sizes across the length, and some of them are studded with silver buttons. This one right here is an accessory that will instantly amp up any formal/semi-formal outfit. © Viral Bhayani We're digging how Saif chose to stick with a pair of classic bell-bottoms instead of skinny jeans, and his leather shoes go perfectly with the belt. © Viral Bhayani Also, brownie points for that cool man bun. Let's just say Taimur is learning from the best, when it comes to matters of style.
  24. From one of the most popular sports to fun and leisurely escape, swimming has varying definitions for the water babies amongst us. So, whether you are planning to dive into your community pool; gearing up to take a dip into the ocean, OR prepping to look effortlessly cool at that much-awaited pool party, there are a few things you need to keep handy. Out of the other swimming essentials; swimming goggles, swimming cap, to name a few, swimming trunks make for the most requisite ones.

To accomplish that, the initial step is to invest in a pair of quality swimming trunks, which not only look appealingly good but also feels snug on your nether region. While you can easily find a plethora of websites, and shops dealing in swimming trunks, there are certain factors that you need to keep in mind before investing in one, the most essential ones being- 1.

To avoid just that, it is essential that you invest in a pair which features fine stretch fabric, which ensures freedom of movement and utmost comfort. 2. Quick Drying Ability: As much as the water babies like to spend time inside water, having to walk around in a soaked swimming costume post the swim can be highly uncomfortable. This makes it essential that you opt for a costume which features a quick-drying technology. 3. Durability: Whether you are a regular swimmer or someone who has a hip pool party coming up, nobody likes investing in a pair of swimming trunks which begin to lose their hue, as soon as you take the very first dip in the water. The chlorine present in water can cause the (poor quality) fabric to fade away, hence you need to make sure that you are investing in swimming trunks which are made out of good quality or chlorine resistant fabric.
