  1. It has been a while since the Board for Control of Cricket in India had declared the list of final 15 cricketers who will be representing the country in the 2019 ICC World Cup and while the level of talent and skills the roster boasts, a good portion of the fans of Indian cricket are questioning the Board's decision to not pick the 21-year-old Rishabh Pant, former Australian captain, two-time World Cup winner and Delhi Capitals Head Coach, Ricky Ponting being one of them. "I was surprised when he was left out of the squad. I thought he'll be in and I thought he'll actually play in the starting eleven. I thought that someone like him batting at No. 4 or 5 in their side would have just been that sort of player who could have had that X-factor about him that could have been the difference between India and some other teams in the World Cup,” said Ponting, according to an International Cricket Council (ICC) report. Pant â Karthik â India have named their @cricketworldcup squad â¬ï¸https://t.co/7fOjI2he3X pic.twitter.com/q8WnsVCa42 — ICC (@ICC) April 15, 2019 Ponting, who has been one of Pant's hardcore fan ever since his brilliant innings in the Test series against Tim Paine's Australian team in January 2019, has become more of a mentor to the Roorkee-born as integral parts of the Indian Premier League franchise, Delhi Capitals. "He is sort of like another Adam Gilchrist" – Ricky Ponting on Rishabh Pant after the India wicket-keeper batsman hit an entertaining ð¯ at the SCG. READ ðhttps://t.co/fofFrxgqLi pic.twitter.com/7CsO9ITloR — ICC (@ICC) January 5, 2019 Having spent more than a month together now, the Aussie was in Pant's corner when the Indian squad for the World Cup was announced and got to see him take in the rejection up close. According to him, Pant naturally felt a bit dispirited and depressed upon learning his exclusion but was quick to get back on his feet. "The thing that he has to remember, and we all have to remember, [is that] he's still very, very young. He's got an opportunity to play, potentially, in another three or four World Cups during the course of his career," Ponting said. "One thing that we know about Indian cricket is that there is a lot of depth around, particularly around the batting side. Unfortunately, this time, Rishabh is the one that has missed out, but as I said, I think knowing what he's like and the talent he's got, I'll be surprised if he doesn't play at least three World Cups before his career is over." While the World Cup teams have the right to make amendments to their respective teams until 23rd May 2019, the Australian truly believes that Pant's chances of being called this year, are negligible. Instead, he wants the Indian wicket-keeper batsman to focus all his energy towards helping Delhi Capitals do better in the ongoing IPL and try a win them their maiden title. This. Is. New. Delhi. ⤠Coach Ricky Ponting out there giving us all the #MotivationalFeels with his speech after the #MIvDC game ðð¥ The boys are ready for #DCvCSK at #QilaKotla! #ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals #CoachSpeaks pic.twitter.com/hLzTuQI7X2 — Delhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) March 26, 2019 "What he can only focus on now is win games for the Delhi Capitals. I think there's enough motivation there for him with that, he's talked a lot about wanting to be a successful part of a successful Delhi team. We've got that opportunity now over the next month."
  2. At the Lotus Fashion Week 2019, on the second day, among other designers was a remarkable menswear collection called 'Meld' by Dhruv Vaish. © Studio picsing © Studio picsing © Studio picsing Inspired by modern industrial art, and keeping the masculine sensibility in account, the collection is a fusion of geometric prints, versatile textures and fabrics crafted in slick solids. Introducing fabrics like satin for men, alongside traditional works of cottons and wool. The shiny fabric has been juxtaposed with very earthy handloom cottons in contrasting hues of dark navy, purples, browns and vibrant yellows to put together a stellar outfit. © Studio picsing © Studio picsing © Studio picsing © Studio picsing © Studio picsing © Studio picsing © Studio picsing The collection represents the constantly evolving definition of traditional menswear with a limited range of shapes and colours. Introducing a plethora of unconventional colours and a range of clothing like long coats, hybrids, double layered jackets, high-waisted pants, put together with space age sun glasses represents the on-the-go modern man in Dhruv Vaish's collection.
  3. While a few of the cricket pundits are adamant to boycott Pakistan during the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 without considering the plausible long-term consequences for the brilliant athletes such as Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah who have helped built one of the most talented cricket teams in the history of Indian cricket, the Indian National Olympic Committee (NOC) have already taken a major step towards cutting all relations with the neighbouring country. During the 34th edition of the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Cup, currently taking place in New Delhi, India decided to refuse visas to two of the Pakistani shooters in GM Bashir and Khalil Ahmed. The ban comes as a response to the unfortunate suicide bombing in the Pulwama district of Jammu & Kashmir, the credit for which was taken by the notorious terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed. © Reuters However, according to clause 6 under the Fundamental Principles of Olympism in the Olympic Charter, every Olympian enjoys a set of 'rights' and 'freedoms' what shall be secured without discrimination of any kind, such as race, colour, ***, sexual orientation, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. In other words, Even though the political scenario between India and Pakistan, no matter how strenuous it may be, should have no effect on the olympic athletes belonging from either of the countries. Clearly having violated the mandate, the International Olympic Committee has decided to not indulge with friendly talks with the Indian NOC with regards to providing the rights for hosting future Olympic events in the country, “until and unless a written clearance from the government is obtained”. The hasty decision to ban the Pakistani shooters from participating in the ISSF World Cup, might seem to be justified in the eyes of a lot of us who are scarred by the forlorn incident but it could have massive repercussions for the Indian athletes in the future. © Reuters First of all, for a country as diverse as India with a huge number of fans for nearly every Olympic sport, it is crucial to continue to host major events like the ISSF World Cup. Eventually, we will have to give in to the Olympic Charter if we wish to be associated with the greatest sporting platform, period, thereby completely negating the the value of their ongoing protest. Secondly, if push comes to shove, the IOC will not even think twice before banning India as a whole as they did Russia in 2018, taking away the rights of the country to hoist their flags during the tournament and sing their national anthem. For a country that sends one of the biggest contingents to the historical tournament with national teams and individuals preparing for years to get that one shot, an international ban would not only result in a lost opportunity but also the loss of potential earnings. India doesn't lack in athletes who are trying to make ends meet. Taking away an opportunity like this would only bring hardships and struggles to the people of India. The protest then, would be the last thing on our minds.
  4. Wireless Charging has been slowly gaining traction in the last few years and a wide range of phones support it today. Even though the practicality of using the technology has often been challenged, there is no doubt that it offers more convenience. Just keep your phone on the charger and you're good to go. © Youtube/Mobile Fun There are many out there who prefer a "fast wired charger", and for them, technology has been improving at a quick pace. Wireless Chargers too now support faster charging and with almost every other flagship phone being equipped with the tech, it's sure to take over the world soon. After all, we did slowly get over the headphone jack! For those who aren't aware, Wireless Charging is technically called Inductive Charging and uses an electromagnetic field to transfer energy. An induction coil in the charger creates a field while another coil in your phone receives it. These are our top recommendations for the best wireless chargers: 1. Belkin Boost Up: © Belkin Belkin has worked closely with Apple to design the charging pad and it's perfectly optimized for the iPhones. It supports the universal Qi protocol for wireless charging and hence can also work with supporting Samsung, LG, Sony, and Google phones. It supports 7.5W of charging and can also work with cases up to 3mm thin. A green LED light shows when your phone is correctly aligned on the pad and charging along with an amber light in case foreign objects are detected or the phone isn't placed properly. The surface is non-slippery and just for your peace of mind, it comes with two years warranty. Buy from Amazon.in 2. Samsung Wireless Charger Pad 2018: © Samsung Samsung's charging pad is built keeping the brand's smartphone offerings in mind. It looks similar to the Galaxy phone design language. Unlike Belkin's offering, this one supports charging up to 9W. Though, Samsung officially says the 9W figure is functional with compatible S and Note series phones only. The charger supports Qi wireless, meaning it can also charge your iPhone or other OEM devices. It also has a built-in fan that keeps your device cool and more efficiently charges it. Buy from Amazon.in 3. Google Pixel Stand: © Google The Pixel 3 supports wireless charging, but if you want to get the fastest wireless charging, you'll need the Pixel Stand (or another, Google-licensed 10W wireless charger). With a third-party charger, the transfer has been limited at 5W, which is base Qi speed. Though, the Pixel Stand can do more than just charging. Once paired with Google's new phone, it provides quick access to Google Assistant by voice or touch, along with shortcuts to popular Assistant commands. Buy from Google 4. Mophie Wireless Charger: © Mophie Just like a majority of other charging pads, this one too supports 7.5W wireless transfer and is compatible with Qi standards. Its base has a rounded outer edge and the cable slots into a recessed port along with a flush finish at the mat's edge. Also, this particular charger ships with a wall adapter in the box meaning that you'll be charging the moment you take it out of the box, a convenience that can't be said about thousands of options available out there. Buy from Amazon.in 5. Haavitek Wireless Charger: © Haavitek While most of the chargers here are directly from a smartphone maker or certified by one, the Haavitek charger is purely universal. It's built keeping all types of phones in mind and supports the Qi standard for transfer. This one is capable of 10W fast charging and has a design similar to the Pixel Stand, without the smart capabilities though. Compare to other chargers, this one is significantly cheaper. Buy from Amazon.in
  5. Apple takes health extremely seriously and it's all reflected in the Apple Watch with new features that helps humans from fatal diseases. Apple Watch has already been credited for saving numerous lives by detecting discrepancies in heart rate that would, in turn, make diseases discoverable to users. It seems like Apple Watch now wants to prevent other types of diseases and even sunburns. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Overexposure to UV rays have been credited to cause some serious health complications such as skin cancer. Other types of damages to the skin such as elastic and collagen tissue, discolouration and severe sunburn are other cancers for sun-seekers. Apple is now looking at a way for the Apple Watch to discover if the user is outdoors and how much the user has been exposed to UV light. The new patent by Apple was granted last week by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which is for "UV dosimetry and exposure alert.” It describes a system that will detect sunlight and track the exposure over time. The Apple Watch will then send users an alert about exposure levels and guide users on how to avoid excessive exposure. © U.S. Patent and Trademark Office The patent details that a future Apple Watt will have a number of UV light sensors which will aid the smartwatch to detect the user's location and outdoor conditions. It will also be able to determine the period of time spent outdoors by a user. The data from these sensors will then be fed into an analyser that will compute the total exposure time. Other sensors such as an ambient light sensor and an infrared light sensor can also be used to deliver more accurate data about the amount of light being exposed to the user. These sensors can also detect the type of light i.e. indoors or outdoors. © U.S. Patent and Trademark Office The Apple Watch could also use GPS to deliver "location-dependent UV index information” as levels change at different times of the day. Users could be warned in advance of high-risk UV exposure periods of the day. The inclusion of a UV monitor a user's UV intake would definitely set it apart from other smartwatches out there. This extension to Apple's already health and wellbeing features will make it the ultimate smartwatch to own that does way more than a regular fitness band. Having all said, this is a patent by Apple which was granted recently and it does not mean that the new feature will come in a future Apple product soon. Would you like this feature on a smartwatch? Let us know in the comments below. Source: Apple Insider
  6. Up until the PlayStation 4, the controller layout remained unchanged for years. Having said that, the Touchpad on the PlayStation 4 is more or less used as a quick action button in various games and wasn't really explored further. However, according to a new update to Sony's DualShock controller, the touchpad could be replaced with a proper touchscreen. © YouTube The patent was spotted by DualShockers, and suggested that the touchscreen can be used for interactive feedback such as showing stats, displaying a mini-map or other functions you need to see on the fly. Sony has already implemented an LED light bar which changes colour according to your gameplay. It's not the first time we've seen a touchscreen on console controllers. Nintendo's Wii U had a similar concept that did not impress gamers as a whole. The Sega Dreamcast also implemented something similar back in the day which was also a failure when we look at sales figures. However, Sony has been killing it when it comes to console sales all over the world and it may just be a successful implementation for the company if the company implement the latest patent. © Pexels Even though this is a patent, for now, it is possible to see a new Dualshock controller with the next generation of Sony PlayStation. Sony is reportedly working on the PlayStation 4 successor and it may be possible that we will see the new controller bundled with PlayStation 5. We can only know for sure once Sony unveils the new console which could release sometime in late 2019/early 2020. Source: DualShockers
  7. Five years ago, Jose Mourinho reportedly broke into tears when he learnt that David Moyes was appointed as the successor to Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United. Not known for being so emotional, Mourinho had wanted this job for years and following his fallout with Real Madrid in 2013, the Portuguese was expected by many to take the charge at hallowed Old Trafford. But, it wasn't meant to be, at least not at that time. Missing out on the dream job, the master tactician had to contend with his second innings at Chelsea which lasted for two years. During that period, United's struggle to find a worthy successor to Sir Alex saw the likes of Moyes, Ryan Giggs (interim player-manager) and Louis van Gaal make brief appearances in the dug-out. It was in 2016 that Mourinho got his wish as United - struggling to match their rivals - placed their faith in the Portuguese. With many allowing him some time to get into the groove at United, Mourinho did fairly well in his debut season, winning three trophies - FA Community Shield, EFL Cup and Europa League. But, in the years that followed, Mourinho has neither been productive nor impressive. The United manager ended last season, his second year in charge at Old Trafford, empty-handed before taking in a disappointing summer transfer window and a testing start to his third year at the helm. © Reuters The ongoing season saw the Red Devils lose two of their opening three league games for the first time in 26 years, including a 3-0 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur - also the heaviest home defeat in Mourinho's career. The fact that United are currently languishing at the 10th spot with just four wins in their first nine EPL games and, more recently, losing 0-1 to Juventus in the UEFA Champions League group game at home, sums up the plight of Mourinho. But, the Portuguese's problems don't end at the lack of trophies. The United owners and fans expected Mourinho to take his time to get going and bring the lost glory at the Manchester club. However, even if you give the benefit of doubt to the Portuguese regarding the lack of silverware, you just can't overlook the fact that United have shed their attacking style of play in favour of a more defensive and reserved approach. To the sheer disbelief of former United players and fans, Mourinho has been seen deploying different tactics in a bid to turn their misfortunes. It's like, he is stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea. He wants United to play defensively and, in the process, expects his side to snatch a 1-0 win. But, the fact that he knows the fans and United stars will not accept that, further makes his style a bit dodgy and unconvincing - the current state of United's sordid campaign. © Reuters The Ferguson's United dominated the Premier League on the back of their attacking display. It was the attacking intent to score goals while standing firm in defence that allowed Ferguson's men to notch up one silverware after another. Even when they lost, the fans and pundits were content with the way they played. But, Mourinho's United is not like that, something that further dents Mourinho's reputation at Old Trafford. What makes Mourinho's situation even more difficult, is the fact that while United seem to be going backwards, their rivals have taken huge strides to establish themselves. On one hand, where United have lost their presence in the competition, the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool are scaling new heights. Even Chelsea, for that matter, have shown great signs of improvement in such a short time under new manager Maurizio Sarri. So, why after three years, United are still waiting for Mourinho to find a winning formula? - a question that continues to echo at Old Trafford. © Reuters The frustration of United fans has reached an all-time high which probably explains why they were so keen to turn up for 'The Sportsman's Manchester Referendum' - ahead of their Champions League loss against Juventus. The ballot saw thousands of United supporters casting their vote (online and in person) on Mourinho's future at Old Trafford. And, the results weren't surprising at all. Out of over 15,000 votes, 55 per cent United supporters supported the axing of Mourinho as manager. We're three seasons into Mourinho's reign now. The Man Utd management has already spent a lot of money on players. But, the results are nowhere to be seen. The time is clearly running out for the Portuguese, especially with the Glazer family eyeing former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane as a potential replacement. And, now with the fans expressing their displeasure, it's certain that Mourinho's head will roll, the question is only 'when'.
  8. Along with the new iPhones, Apple also announced the next-generation of its Apple Watch lineup. Dubbed Apple Watch Series 4, it is a serious upgrade that brings in a bigger display, thinner design, faster processor, and above all, a ton of new features. The new watch face can display a humongous amount of data and is the first thing that will catch your attention at first sight. The Series 4 now comes in two new sizes--40mm and 44mm; the latter is available as an LTE (cellular) variant as well. Apple Watch now features a 30 percent larger display and it now runs to the edges rather than floats in a black bezel. It is powered by a new S4 chipset that Apple claims is two times faster. © Apple The speaker has been redesigned and is now 50 percent louder compared to the previous generation. The microphone has been shifted to the other side, away from the speaker, to reduce echo. Since its launch in 2015, all the variants of Apple Watch have sported a heart rate sensor, it can notify users about escalated resting heart rate and has already saved many lives. Apple is now taking health monitoring to another level by the adding the ability to take Electrocardiography readings (ECG). The results of the ECG can be easily shared via a PDF with your doctor and will also be saved in the Health app. © Apple Jeff Williams, Apple's Chief Operating Officer, explains, "We've added electrodes to the back of the Watch, and the digital crown allows you to take an electrocardiogram. Now you can take an ECG anytime, anywhere. You open the app and put finger on the digital crown. Built-in electrodes on the back and crown detect electrical impulses from your heartbeat and it will send them to S4 chip. Takes 30 seconds, and then you get a heart rate analysis." What's even more exciting is the watch has an improved gyroscope and accelerometer that can now predict if the person wearing it is falling. In case a fall is detected and no movement is recorded on the watch for one minute, it will automatically send out an SOS message. © Apple The Apple Watch Series 4 runs on watchOS 5 out of the box, this brings in a new modular face, three minimal faces, and watch faces based on fire, water, and vapor effects. Obviously, the update will be available to the previous generation of Apple Watch's as well. The Apple Watch is available in three colors for its aluminum finish, in silver, gold and space grey. The retail price starts at US$ 399 (Rs 28,700) for the GPS-only, non-cellular variant, and US$ 499 (Rs 36,000) for one with both GPS and cellular. It will be available for pre-order starting September 14 in the USA.
  9. It has been a while since we've seen a substantial graphics card launch and today all rumours come to an end, as Nvidia officially announced GPUs of the future. The company announced the highly anticipated RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 graphics cards and we have all the details. © Nvidia The name of the series has been changed from the popular 'GTX' name to 'RTX' for this generation and the new GPUs will be able to fuse ray tracing, have deep learning and rasterisation. The RTX 2090 Ti has 11GB GDDR6 memory and has 4352 CUDA cores. That is 20% more than the GTX 1090 Ti, proving it will be a very powerful graphics card. The improved memory bandwidth will also mean that the card will be more reliable than ever before. © Nvidia The GeForce RTX series clear focus is on real-time ray-tracing capabilities which basically translates into a better rendering of lighting effects. The new ray tracing technique will be able to produce real-time light reflections and other cinematic effects. These new effects can easily be taken advantage of by developers for their titles. Microsoft has also created a new DirectX Raytracing API to work in tune with Nvidia's new GPUs. © YouTube Alongside the RTX 2080 Ti, the company also announced the direct successor to the GTX 1080. The RTX 2080 will ship with 2944 CUDA cores, which is 15 per cent more than the GTX 1080. Nvidia's own 'Founder Edition' has a Dual Fan setup while previously leaked 'PNY' version will also have a three-fan setup for extra cooling. Nvidia is basically employing a comprehensive cooling solution for its own-branded GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. Here's how the new lineup of GPUs looks next to the current generation: The TDP on the two new graphics cards are also significantly higher when compared to its predecessors. The RTX 2080 sits at 285W compared to 180W for the GTX 1080. This is probably why the new GPUs have a triple-fan setup. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and 2080 Features and Specifications: . Real-Time Ray Tracing . NVIDIA® GeForce ExperienceTM . 6x Performance of Previous Generations . NVIDIA® Ansel . NVIDIA® Highlights . NVIDIA® G-SYNCTM-Compatible . Game Ready Drivers . Microsoft® DirectX® 12 API, Vulkan API, OpenGL 4/5 . DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b . Designed for USB Type-C and virtual link . HDCP 2.2 . NVIDIA® GPU BoostTM . VR Ready The pricing for the new GPUs is in line with the previous generation, as the RTX 2080 ( Founders Edition) will cost $799 on its website and the very powerful RTX 2080 Ti (Founders Edition) will cost $1199. The cheaper GeForce RTX 2070 will retail for $599. India pricing for the two GPUs are not yet known however we will get a better idea about it soon.
  10. Arjun Tendulkar is not the only son of a legendary cricketer out there, all prepared to match up to his father's legacy. The Junior 'Wall' is just 12-years-old right now, but he's already telling the world that he's going to be a force to be reckoned with in the cricketing arena. Samit Dravid is the eldest son of Indian icon Rahul Dravid, someone who honestly doesn't need any introduction. Dravid Jr. is playing for his school team at the moment (obviously, since he's 12) and has been giving one impressive performance after another. Twitter In this particular match, along with an unbeaten 51 knock, he also bagged 3 wickets while only giving 9 runs. Of course, this led to his school, Mallya Aditi International School, to a nine-wicket victory against the Cambridge Public School. I'll admit that I don't know much about cricket, but even I can understand that this is quite impressive. This isn't even the first time Samit has made people sit up and take notice of his performance; back in January, he scored a match-winning century in the BTW Cup Under-14 Tournament. He also received a 'Best Batsman' award back in 2015 in the Under-12 Gopalan Cricket Challenge. Twitter Going by his current performances, it's safe to say that this young cricketer will have a long career filled with even more incredible performances, just like his father.
  11. Smartphones usually get incremental upgrades with a facelift, that is not something which is appreciated by smartphone buyers. Every company is guilty of it, however, it seems like Vivo has taken it upon itself to get creative. Today, companies want to deliver a smartphone with a full view display, so that the viewing experience is not obstructed. While companies incorporated minimal bezels or a notch to tackle this problem, Vivo, on the other hand, removed the front-facing camera altogether and even the fingerprint sensor. The company launched the first in-display fingerprint sensor-based smartphone i.e. the Vivo X21 and the company has now launched the highly anticipated Vivo Nex. © MensXP Vivo Nex is probably the first smartphone that embraces a true alap-screen design. It doesn't have a notch and has a hidden selfie camera. The selfie camera is powered by a motorised moving part and the fingerprint sensor has been embedded under the display. There aren't many smartphones out there that are pushing the envelope like the Nex. Creativity and innovation aside, how is the phone and does it perform as well as its competitors? Is it just all talk and no walk, or does it really deliver what it promises? Let's find out! Design The smartphone is quite similar to other smartphones that you may see in the market, however, it is noticeably bigger, thicker and heavier than any other smartphone that has launched in India this year. The phone has a 6.69-inch true bezel-less display and a glass back that is prone to scratching. Speaking of the display, the Vivo Nex does have a very slim bezel at the top and the bottom which is quite negligible when compared to other smartphones. © MensXP The New also has a motorised module that pops up the selfie camera, which is probably why the smartphone has added weight. In terms of ports, the smartphone has a USB-C charging port and a 3.5mm headphone jack for music lovers. The right side of the smartphone has the power key and the volume rockers while on the other side Vivo has provided a dedicated key for Google Assistant and Lens. © MensXP Overall, the smartphone does not have a unique look when one sees it from afar, however, one would instantly notice the absence of the selfie camera or any bezels. In terms of design, the smartphone delivers what it was aiming for. Display The display of a smartphone can either make it or break it, especially when you're paying a premium. The Nex has a massive 6.59-inch display that has a full HD+ resolution. The smartphone uses a Samsung super AMOLED display which is probably the best a smartphone could use in 2018. © MensXP While the AMOLED panel is capable of delivering vivid and accurate colours, we did come across a pixelation issue when we attempted to watch a full HD TV show on Netflix. Regardless of rare issues, the smartphone is a pure joy to use due to the screen size and the fact that nothing obstructed our viewing experience. Normally, we don't talk about these features in the display section, however, there's a lot going on behind the display that needs to be talked about. The display also houses the fingerprint sensor under the display which works exactly how it does on the Vivo X21. Since there is no noticeable earpiece at the front of the phone, the display also acts as a speaker and the earpiece. Setting up the fingerprint scanner was sluggish, frustrating and a slow process and isn't the most reliable way to unlock the smartphone. The display refused to recognise my left thumb, even after I've wiped it clean of dirt, moisture, and self-doubt. Having said that, it is a brand new technology that needs more time to be developed, which is why it will get a pass this time around. Performance The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 SoC which is paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GG of internal memory. The processor and components have been complimented with Android Oreo 8.1 with Funtouch OS 4 on top. The user interface is probably our biggest disappointment, as it does not look refined or visually appealing. Having said that, the operating system works well and smoothly in terms of performance. Processor-intensive applications such as PUBG worked without any glitches, frame rate issues or lag. The RAM has been optimised enough to work well with SP 845, however, we feel it is not utilising its full potential. During the course of our testing, the Vivo Nex performed considerably well on Geekbench with a score of 2417 (single core) and 9094 (Multi-core), that's ahead of the OnePlus 6, Galaxy S9+, Galaxy Note 8 and other flagship devices. © Youtube- MKBHD When it comes to battery life, the Vivo Nex outperforms any smartphone in its class. It has a 4,00 mAh battery that can be fast charged thanks to the USB Type-C port. Having said that, we don't recommend you using a third-party charger, as the Vivo Nex will freeze up when charged by a different charger. In terms of battery life, our review unit easily lasted for one and a half day, which included heavy use of GPS services, gaming, and communications. We also used the smartphone to watch videos on Netflix and YouTube. Camera Quality © MensXP The Vivo Nex is outfitted with a 12-megapixel primary camera that has been partnered with a 5-megapixel depth sensing sensor, having an aperture of f/1.8 and f/2.4 respectively. The front-facing camera features an 8MP f/2.0 sensor which enables it to take some kickass selfies. The primary camera performs well for its price category but fails to challenge the status quo held by current flagships. In well-lit environments, the smartphone is capable of taking some impressive photos while underperforms in low-light environments. The camera is unable to capture details or colours when it comes to low-light photography. © MensXP The selfie camera, on the other hand, has an interesting feature that may interest onlookers. The 8-megapixel front facing camera pops out each time you fire up the selfie mode. While the camera pops up, it even makes a sound that gives it a feel of something arriving from the future. The selfie camera takes clear shots that also has a beautify mode that removes blemishes and marks. It is also capable of taking self portrait shots, which needs a little more tweaking for the blur effect to be accurate. Here are some samples from the camera for your judgement: Unedited pictures taken using the #VivoNex #smartphones #technology A post shared by Akshay Bhalla / Høax (@editorinchief) on Jul 23, 2018 at 1:30am PDT The Final Say Vivo Nex retails in India for Rs 44,500 and we feel that you get your money's worth if you make an investment in it. You get a cool phone with features no other device can boast of, it performs better than many other Android devices and it lasts really long in terms of battery life. The camera definitely needs improvement and if you are looking for an alternative to the OnePlus 6, you can definitely have a look at the Vivo Nex.
  12. The Vivo Nex was launched in India today and we've been playing with the smartphone for over two weeks now. The two big features that set this phone apart from the Android Pack are a fingerprint sensor under the display and a selfie-camera that pops up. The selfie camera has been removed from the display in order to have a true bezel-less display. Right after using the smartphone for a few hours one will notice a huge difference in experience as you get a display without any obstruction of bezels. © YouTube The under-the-display fingerprint scanner works like a charm and feels snappy enough to give the user a quick unlocking experience. Having said that, one will need to apply extra pressure to the screen in order to unlock it which will take time to get used to. The most noticeable thing about the Nex is the 6.6-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen and its unusual weight. The Vivo Nex weighs around 199g thanks to the mechanical parts of the phone for the selfie camera. The body of the smartphone is curved from the back and has a headphone jack on the top. The screen has a 86% percent screen-to-body ratio which is higher than the iPhone X and probably the only phone with a near bezel-less display. There is no notch on this smartphone which will make many hardcore Android users happy. © MensXP The retractable camera launches every time you try to take a selfie. Even though it has mechanical moving parts, the camera did not fail even once. The camera does take time to pop out but it certainly isn't something that would bother a user. Since the selfie camera is hidden at the top, the smartphone does not have a face unlock feature. The smartphone definitely feels like a high-end smartphone and is powered by Qualcomm's top of the line processor i.e. Snapdragon 845. The chipset has been paired with 8GB of RAM and 128/256GB of internal storage. It has a dual camera setup at the back with a primary 12-MP f/1.8 sensor and a secondary 5-megapixel one for depth. The camera also has Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) and PDAF (phase-detection autofocus). During our initial tests, the phone performed well at taking images and we will elaborate more on that in the official review. © BCCL In our opinion, the Vivo Nex is the futuristic smartphone we've all been waiting for. The retracting camera is exciting to use; however, we used it with caution for obvious reasons. The in-screen fingering sensor actually works accurately and maybe even better than Vivo's X21. This is a huge step for Vivo as a company in terms of innovation and creativity. To know more about the smartphone, we suggest you wait for the official review of the smartphone in the next few days.

  15. Good news! We've taken Invision Community's Blog app by the scruff of the neck and dragged it into 2018! There has been a growing trend for imagery to play a very important part of a blog entry. This update reflects that. Introducing Grid View We have added a new view that shows your blog entries as cards with space for a cover photo. We've very visual creatures, and a good photograph can entice readers into your blogs to read more. As you would expect, you can disable this mode from the Admin CP for purists that prefer the traditional list format. For those who's sense of adventure runs deep, the new grid mode allows you to show a list of latest blog entries as the blog home page. This puts valuable and engaging content right in front of your audience. This list view persists when you view a blog's entries giving a consistent feel. Viewing an entry We've given the blog entry page a little make-over by featuring the cover photo above the content. The slimmed down blog details bar allows your audience to focus on the content. Default Cover Photos You may have spotted that entries without a cover photo have a rather fetching geometric pattern in different colors. This is a new micro-feature of Invision Community 4.3. Currently, if you do not have a cover photo on a blog, profile or event, the bar is a rather sad shade of black. The new default cover photo feature makes it much more cheerful. Here's what a profile looks like. Much better. Here's a few technical details for those that love to know all the things. The grid view feature can be turned off in the ACP (but doing so will make me very sad) You can choose the default home page view: Latest Entries or List of Blogs. You can still view a list of blogs when you're on the latest entries page. This choice is stored in a little cookie (GDPR friendly, it doesn't contain any identifying data) so navigating back gets you the last view you chose. Let us know what you think! We love it, and hope you do too.
