  1. You might think that your hair only needs a good shampoo and conditioner to feel great. You are thrown with tons of options and it gets easier than ever to make it a part of your arsenal. But please, hold on. The downside to this is that you'll end up losing your hair drastically and if you don't want a receding hairline so soon, we are here to help you cut through the clutter. From the right sort of hair oil to which shampoo you should use, here are some best hair products for you that add volume and make your hair look good at all hours. 1.

  2. While the culinary experience continues to evolve and grow, a major chunk of the country is slowly embracing alternate dietary options for various reasons ranging from philosophical to health-related. And one of the most popular options that seem to have become a recent rage is- Veganism. © Instagram What started as a celebrity-first dietary shift in the West, has quickly made its way into the Indian lifestyle and a huge number of personalities are known to follow and endorse this brand of vegetarian diet. What is Veganism © Pexels Veganism essentially calls for a complete rejection of animal products especially when it comes to food intake. While there exist further categories under Veganism, vegans are primarily known to consume plant-based food, nuts, legumes and fruits, while they categorically reject any product or food ingredient of animal origin, such as dairy products, eggs, etc. Why Veganism © Pexels While health continues to be one of the biggest catalysts in making this shift, people have also been making the leap due to ethical and environmental reasons such as rejecting the commodity status of animals, exploitation and right to life. No matter the reason why one chooses to make the shift, here are 6 of the fittest Indian celebrities who have turned vegan: 1. Akshay Kumar © Viral Bhayani The most recent addition to the list, itâs only been a month or two since Akshay shifted to a vegan diet. Also otherwise known to eat clean and less spicy food, we canât wait to see how he takes to it. 2. Aamir Khan © Star World It has been over 3 years since Aamir turned vegan following an episode with his already vegan wife Kiran. It was a 1-hour video by a doctor talking about 15 most-common, life-threatening diseases which can be avoided by making dietary changes which pushed Aamir to make the shift. 3. Virat Kohli © Instagram Back in 2018, Virat finally adopted Veganism and joined his wife Anushka who already followed a vegan diet. He has since undergone a serious physical transformation and admitted that it has improved his fitness and game. 4. Shahid Kapoor © Instagram Even though Shahid swore off non-veg while dating Kareena, it was a book by Brian Hines called Life is Fair that finally inspired Shahid to switch to Veganism a few years ago. 5. R. Madhavan © Instagram One of the most dedicated, oldest practising vegan in B-town, Maddy has been very vocal about his support towards animal rights and even received a PETA Person of the Year in 2012. 6. Vidyut Jammwal © Twitter One of the fittest and most active actors in the industry, Vidyut has often credited his vegan lifestyle for his ripped body. He has even publicly spoken about going vegan and said, âBeing vegan helps me keep fit. I love the way I feel.â View the full article
  3. Foldable smartphones are not a thing of the future anymore as we see multiple companies now releasing their devices. As of now Samsung, Huawei, and Motorola have all showed off their foldable smartphones with unique designs. However, with any folding screen smartphone, the first concern is its durability and how many times it can withstand the folding and unfolding action. Samsungâs first attempt at the Galaxy Fold was the perfect example of how things can go wrong and in the case of the Motorola Razr, we got to know what the problem could be. In an initial teardown of the smartphone, the foldable screen is not particularly as fragile as Samsungâs first version of the Galaxy Fold but the hinge is facing issues. © Motorola For the Motorola Razr, CNET kept a lower goal i.e. 100,000 folds and in the test, the result was quite shocking. In the test, CNET reveals that after 27,000 folds, the Motorola Razr was not able to close all the way. Thatâs less than half of what Samsungâs claim for the Galaxy Fold. While CNETâs test may not reflect real-world use of the new Razr, however, it seems like the durability of the hinge is seriously a big worry. If CNETâs test can be translated to a real-world test, the Motorola Razr will not break in a year however will not last as long as traditional smartphones. The Motorola Razr retails in the U.S. for $1,500 which might be a huge risk if the long-term durability of the smartphone is not certain. Source: CNET View the full article

  5. It's okay to admit that it is, in fact, impossible to smell good all the time. It goes without saying that none of us naturally smell like fresh-cut roses. However, it is possible to create an arsenal of scented products that make you smell really good, should you want to. So, here's a quick guide to help you smell good at all times. 1. Use A Good Tooth Paste You need a toothpaste with a formula that's safe and gentle but also leaves your mouth feeling fresh. This is the first step that you need to start and end your day with to nix bad breath. 2. Rinse With Mouthwash © Getty Images Now, we all know that brushing your teeth may not be enough for the entire day. Carrying a handy mouthwash then saves you in times of crisis when you want to fix that bad breath in the middle of the day at work. 3. Never Rub In Your Fragrance © Getty Images Spray your perfume on your wrists, the back of your neck, or mist it into the air and walk through it. But don't rub it in, because this will make the fragrance disappear entirely. And for a long-lasting scent, you must know that you should avoid this step. 4. Try An Essential Oil-Roller © Getty Images With an essential oil roller, not only do you get 48 hours of sweat protection, but you're also left with an extremely calming scent. So, you could experiment with rollers with formulas of lavender, tea tree, oudh, and eucalyptus essential oils. 5. Wear Strong Perfume © Getty Images If you're not comfortable with rollerballs, try keeping this solid perfume on you instead. You can always keep travel-minis in your bag for a quick fresh-up in the middle of the day. 6. Don't Forget The Body Cream The body cream will not only hydrate your skin but will also leave room for absorbing the perfume, further enabling the scent to last longer. View the full article
  6. Not all movies are meant to entertain us and be watched with friends or family. Sometimes, on days when our hearts are full of doubts and the weight of the world is upon our shoulders, one needs to just have a good cry. Mark this list for the days when you need to watch a tearjerker and cry in peace: 1. Masoom Please prepare to go on a roller coaster of emotions with this absolutely beautiful movie about a little boy craving the love of a family and a father who is too embarrassed to have him. 100% guarantee that it will clean your eye ducts. 2. Sadma Catharsis is a beautiful literary device and this wonderfully sad (if I may call it) movie ensures that the end will leave you wiping your tears. 3. One Day A gorgeously written unconventional romantic movie which explores the various aspects of a relationship which finds its roots in a friendship. Anne Hathaway gave us all the feels and our hearts bled towards the end. 4. Hachi Probably the only 'dog' movie I have ever been able to watch in my life because it is easy for me to watch humans die in a story but the pain of a dog is unfathomable for my soul. However, no dog deaths are involved in this but it explores the pious relationship your canine love shares with you. Please watch it when you need a hearty cry. 5. Room A young mother and her son are kept captive for years, and the mother fights hard for survival. A small movie that can leave a big impact on your heart and make you love things in life harder as you appreciate them. 6. Taare Zameen Par If the song 'Maa' was not enough, this movie can melt the strongest of hearts. There is something about the little protagonist trying to fit in the adult world which makes you want to hug yourself for all the times you felt alone. View the full article
  7. 'Avengers: Infinity War': Thor almost lost his eye for good Thor can easily be dubbed as the most beloved character in the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Recently it was revealed that Thor could have potentially lost his eye, permanently, in the Avenger universe in Avengers: Infinity War. News reports suggest that Thor wasn't always supposed to get his eye back in the film. Over the last few years, Thor's characters has seen numerous changes, from personality to appearance. His locks snipped, Majlnir destroyed and his eye gorged out by his returned sister Hela. For Thor, in Avengers: Infinity War, most of the character's traits were kept intact but Anthony and Joe Russo made a few changes along the way. One of the most major being, returning Thor's eyesight through Rocket. The eye change has since then become one of his most signature looks, however it wasn't pre-planned from the get-go. Fans can see that Thor still had an eye patch on during his time in Asgard, after he put on a lot of weight. According to Burt, this was because the eye transfer was not written into the script at that point during its development. He was quoted saying, "He didn't have the cyborg eye at this point in the script that he gets in Infinity War, so I was still giving him eye patches or giving him the sunglasses with one dark lens."
  8. Photo: fileSeveral members of the national cricket team offered their best wishes to the U19 side ahead of their departure for South Africa, where the U19 Cricket World Cup will be staged from January 7. The senior players, according to a press release by the Pakistan Cricket Board, hoped that the U-19 side would carry last year’s winning momentum into the World Cup, and advised the players to make the most of the platform as it would lead to their eventual recruitment into the national team. “I wish all the best to the U19 team. My message for them is to do well, like they have been doing recently. Help each other and believe in your teammates’ abilities,” said T20I captain Babar Azam, who was part of the U19 World Cup in 2010 and 2012. “Our batsmen and bowlers are in good shape and after having played in South Africa, I would suggest the batsmen to stay upright while batting. Enjoy this opportunity and put your heart in it as that would enhance your performances.” Test captain Azhar Ali, who was a part of the U19 team in 2002 World Cup, told the current crop to focus on unity and aggressive play. “I wish all the best to this team and advise them to stick together as a unit and play fearless cricket," he said. “Playing the U19 World Cup gives you a flavour of international cricket as the matches are televised and the players get to experience the pressure of international cricket. "It is a great opportunity for these cricketers to learn, which will certainly help them when they graduate to the senior team." Azhar praised U-19 captain Rohail Nazir and Haider Ali, saying that "they have done well at the U19 level and impressed at the first-class level too. When a player performs at the first-class level, it lifts his morale up. If these two are able to stretch their form into the World Cup, the team will benefit immensely. Recent graduate of the side, Naseem Shah, also expressed his confidence in the former team. “I was recently playing with this side and I am hopeful that they are going to do well in the tournament. They have gelled very well and possess good combinations, which will help them excel in the World Cup." “I wish good luck to Rohail Nazir and his team,” he added. Shaheen Shah Afridi, who played in the previous edition of the U19 Cricket World Cup, reminded the youngsters of the importance the junior platform. “The way this team played in South Africa and won, I am hopeful that the U-19 team will win the World Cup. “U-19 cricket grooms a cricketer. It happened with me as after the last World Cup, in which I was the highest wicket-taker [for Pakistan], I was picked up for the PSL and subsequently called-up for the senior side. “This is a very good side and I wish them all the best. I have played with Rohail Nazir and Aarish Ali and I know they are very good players.” “Pakistan have a very good record at the U19 level and I am sure this team will do very well in the tournament," said Fakhar Zaman, who played U-19 domestic cricket. “U-19 level is very important for a player and such international tours help a great deal in the development of the players as they provide crucial opportunities to rub shoulders with the best cricketers. “I have played domestic cricket with these players and they all are very talented and have proved themselves.” Mohammad Hasnain, another former Pakistan U-19 player, said: “I wish all the best to the team and hope that they will do well. U-19 cricket is a very important phase in the development as it teaches you the basics which help in graduating to the next level. “My message to the team is to work hard and eye a spot in the national side.” The Rohail-led side begin their ICC U19 World Cup 2020 campaign on 19 January against Scotland. They will play Zimbabwe U19 and Bangladesh U19 on 22 and 24 January respectively in the group-stage.
  9. Dandruff and winters go hand in hand. Sure, there are people who do not need to deal with this travesty as often as some others, but these people are clearly a minority. More often than not, you'll find that even the most well-groomed among men have to deal with this problem, once the temperature takes a dip. © Instagram/ranveersingh Now, as much as we would like to get rid of this problem once and for all, it's not actually possible. Some of the less fortunate among us have just been cursed with bad genes and bad skin, and it is people like us who have to deal with the worst manifestations of this issue. © iStock Now, you might want to consult a dermatologist if you have a severe condition and have dandruff throughout the year. Meanwhile, here are some easy, budget-friendly hacks that work well and limit how much of your scalp you actually shed. 1. Coconut Oil © iStock Time and again, we have said that coconut oil is God's gift to mankind. No matter what your skin ailment is, you can bet on coconut oil massages to at least alleviate the issue, if not remedy it completely. Simply heat up some coconut oil and massage it gently on your scalp. Don't get too rough with it, otherwise, you may disturb the flaky layers of your scalp and start shedding more. Coconut oil not only helps your scalp in retaining the right amount of moisture, it also helps in keeping the pH levels balanced. 2. Aloe Vera © iStock Aloe vera is again one of those naturally growing, versatile things that are easily found in every household. Now, they may not be a kitchen item technically, but they can be abundantly found around every residential area. Simply slice up an aloe vera leave and rub the sap that oozes out, gently on your scalp. The sap has a number of nutrients and elements that help in keeping the pH balance neutral. Plus, the sap acts as a great anti-oxidant for your skin. 3. Camphor © iStock Camphor works really well for your skin, during any given weather, more so during winters. Simply crush some camphor in your palms and rub them over your hair, and massage gently on your scalp. This not only gives the hair a nice sheen, it also protects it from the dryness of the air by locking the moisture in, right into the hair. 4. Using Clean Towels © iStock Just ask yourself, when was the last time you washed your towel. Ideally, you should be using a fresh towel every day. However, considering that we don't have the luxury to hire housekeepers who would treat us like guests at a hotel, try to wash your towel at least once every 3-4 days. And when you're drying your hair, pat your head gently with the towel instead of rubbing the towel on your head vigorously as if you are trying to light a fire with sticks. 5. Watch Your Bath Water © iStock Finally, keep a good eye on your water heating system that you draw your bathwater from. Ideally, you should not use water that's too hot - that just messes up your scalp, skin as well as hair. Try to wash your hair and head with lukewarm water even during winters. That way, your scalp will retain the right level of moisture and won't dry out. View the full article
  10. The much-awaited trailer of Himesh Reshammiya's Happy Hardy and Heer is finally out and we know who're the people really excited about this one - meme makers. The trailer begins with internet sensation Ranu Mondal singing Teri Meri Kahani which shows Happy (Himesh Reshammiya) and Heer (Sonia Mann) appearing to be madly in love, although the truth is Happy has actually been friend-zoned. Heer then ends up falling in love with Hardy, who's basically a sunglass-wearing stylish musician version of Himesh. Wow, so much in the name of true love! © Pooja Entertainment This 2-minute trailer features Himesh Reshammiya in a double role where one Himesh, wearing turbans, fights the stylish Himesh, because let's accept it; if there's anyone better than Himesh, it's Himesh himself. Both of them are fighting hard to win the girl's heart and literally NO ONE, throughout the trailer, is going to be curious or shocked about why they look like a carbon copy of each other. Maybe that's the mystery they'll solve in the movie? Honestly, we're now excited and waiting for honest reviews from memesters. Directed by Raka and produced by Deepshikha Deshmukh, Happy Hardy and Heer was earlier expected to release on January 3, but it will now hit the theatres on January 31. View the full article
  11. Breast scans are recommended for women above 50 who exhibit no signs of cancer. Photo: AFPA computer programme can identify breast cancer from routine scans with greater accuracy than human experts, researchers said in what they hoped could prove a breakthrough in the fight against the global killer. Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in women, with more than two million new diagnoses last year alone. Regular screening is vital in detecting the earliest signs of the disease in patients who show no obvious symptoms. In Britain, women over 50 are advised to get a mammogram every three years, the results of which are analysed by two independent experts. But interpreting the scans can leave room for error, and a small percentage of all mammograms either return a false positive — misdiagnosing a healthy patient as having cancer — or false negative — missing the disease as it spreads. Now researchers at Google Health have trained an artificial intelligence (AI) model to detect cancer in breast scans from thousands of women in Britain and the United States. The images had already been reviewed by doctors in real life but unlike in a clinical setting, the machine had no patient history to inform its diagnoses. Read more: Intel creates chip to control quantum computers The team found that their AI model could predict breast cancer from the scans with a similar accuracy level to expert radiographers. Further, the AI showed a reduction in the proportion of cases where cancer was incorrectly identified — 5.7 percent in the US and 1.2 percent in Britain, respectively. It also reduced the percentage of missed diagnoses by 9.4 percent among US patients and by 2.7 percent in Britain. "The earlier you identify a breast cancer the better it is for the patient," Dominic King, UK lead at Google Health, told AFP. "We think about this technology in a way that supports and enables an expert, or a patient ultimately, to get the best outcome from whatever diagnostics they've had." Computer 'second opinion'In Britain all mammograms are reviewed by two radiologists, a necessary but labour-intensive process. The team at Google Health also conducted experiments comparing the computer's decision with that of the first human scan reader. If the two diagnoses agreed, the case was marked as resolved. Only with discordant outcomes was the machine then asked to compare with the second reader's decision. Read more: China jails scientist who gene-edited babies The study by King and his team, published in Nature, showed that using AI to verify the first human expert reviewer's diagnosis could save up to 88 percent of the workload for the second clinician. "Find me a country where you can find a nurse or doctor that isn't busy," said King. "There's the opportunity for this technology to support the existing excellent service of the (human) reviewers." Ken Young, a doctor who manages mammogram collection for Cancer Research UK, contributed to the study. He said it was unique for its use of real-life diagnosis scenarios from nearly 30,000 scans. "We have a sample that is representative of all the women that might come through breast screening," he said. "It includes easy cases, difficult cases and everything in between." The team said further research was needed but they hoped that the technology could one day act as a "second opinion" for cancer diagnoses.
  12. India set a record on 1st January 2020 of the most number of babies born worldwide on New Year's Day. Yes, it is what it sounds like! According to data released by UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund), around 392,078 babies were born across the globe on January 1 and 67,385 were born in India. After India, China stands at 46,299 newborn babies born on January 1 followed by Nigeria (26,039), Pakistan (16,787), Indonesia (13,020) and the USA (10,452). © BCCL UNICEF's Executive Director, Henrietta Fore said, “The beginning of a new year and a new decade is an opportunity to reflect on our hopes and aspirations not only for our future but the future of those who will come after us.” The first baby of 2020 was delivered in Fiji in the Pacific and the last baby delivered on January 1 was born in the US. UNICEF celebrates babies that are born on January 1 and this year India topped the list of most born babies on New Year's Day. However, according to PTI, in 2018 around 2.5 million newborns didn't sustain even for a month and around one-third of them died on the first day itself. © Unsplash “Too many mothers and newborns are not being cared for by a trained and equipped midwife or nurse, and the results are devastating. We can ensure that millions of babies survive their first day and live into this decade and beyond if every one of them is born into a safe pair of hands,” Fore added. According to PTI, India is also said to break all records and become the most populated country by the year 2027, leaving China behind. According to the UN, India's population will increase by 273 million people between 2019 and 2050. Yes, you heard it right! View the full article
  13. Some things in life are not to be messed with. Under any circumstances. But unfortunately, some people don't get it and decide to let their adventurous sides get the better of themselves. That's exactly what happened when a Reddit user decided to try a bizarre combo involving idli and tea. Not idli-sambar, idli-podi, idli-chutney but idli dipped in tea. The user shared an 8-second video of the adventure along with the caption, "Hello, I'm new to India. I hope I'm doing this right." Hello, I'm new to India. I hope I'm doing this right. from r/india Err, new or not, the trick to trying new cuisines is to observe how people are eating it, or better yet, simply asking people how it is meant to be eaten! Why would anybody want to put Idli-lovers through such pain is beyond us. Sure enough, people sharing similar sentiments began leaving comments letting the user know just how many people they have managed to unsettle with that 8-second video. From outright anger to passive-aggressive comments, there is a lot people had to say about it. Check out the comments here. View the full article

  15. The Indian cricket team was made to look like one of those below average teams against Kieron Pollard's West Indies side in the second T20I match at the Greenfields Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram. After winning the toss, Pollard decided to bowl first and despite getting a surprising beating at the hands of Shivam Dube in the first half of India's batting innings, were able to make amendments. Expertly gauging the changing pitch conditions with time, Pollard's bowlers were able to limit India's total to a sub-par 170. How do you feel about us chasing this? #IndvWI #ItsOurGame #MenInMaroon pic.twitter.com/VLSWECTtRB — Windies Cricket (@windiescricket) December 8, 2019 And thanks to some awful fielding by the Men in Blue, it was easier than expected for the Windies to win the second match and tie the series at 1-1. Having said that, there was this brief moment in the early moments of India's bowling attack which had a greater significance in the chemistry of Team India which goes beyond the final result of one match. After a couple of overs by Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, skipper Virat Kohli walked to the middle of the field to have a brief meeting with Rishabh Pant and Rohit Sharma. Evidently, Kohli had made up his mind to give Chahar a small break from the bowling rotation and introduce Washington Sundar into the attack. © Reuters But this is where Sharma stepped in and opined that it would be for the best to let Chahar bowl one more over because ending his spell was important and without a lot of discussion, Kohli obliged. It's a debate for another day that Chahar had a really expensive over and both of the Windies openers sent his deliveries for multiple boundaries. However, it is worth noticing how Sharma is being a part of such mid-game decision-making more and more with every game. And based on the success he has had in Kohli's absence and as the leader of the most successful franchises of the Indian Premier League, his inputs most definitely have credibility. Another reason why Kohli has started approaching Sharma for his thoughts is the absence of the former Indian captain and wicket-keeper, Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Not too long ago, it was Dhoni who'd help Kohli make important decisions at crucial moments during a match. As one of the most experienced players of the current Team India and the vice-captain, Sharma has definitely filled the void that MS Dhoni has left behind. © Reuters A month ago, rumours of a tiff between Kohli and Sharma had filled the sports columns of every tabloid and news website. It is therefore refreshing to see such teamwork and two of the best cricketers in the world working together as a unit. View the full article

  17. Celebrities do enjoy a status of wealth, good health and an enormous amount of love that comes their way, courtesy their fans, but they also have the moral responsibility of doing their bit by giving back to the society. Not every celebrity uses their moral compass for the good bit but on 'International Men's Day', here are 5 men who use their celebrity status to stand up for a good cause and are actually the real influencers. 1. Akshay Kumar The 'Khiladi' of Bollywood is not just a superstar, courtesy his movies which give out great messages, but in real life as well, Akshay Kumar always does his bit to make sure he uses his status in a positive way. He made notable donations towards the survivors of Pulwama attack, he's constantly contributed for the jawans, he spoke and ensured action was taken for providing insurance for the stuntmen of the Bollywood industry, he also launched the 'Bharat Ke Veer' app to bridge the gap and raise funds for soldiers and their families amongst many more initiatives that he takes. © Twitter 2. Leonardo DiCaprio The Hollywood star is not only a great actor who is loved for his stellar acting, but also for the amount of work he's been doing for this planet. The actor is an environmentalist who also has a dedicated non-profit organisation which works for causes relevant to the planet. He supports various charities and donates continuously for all the causes he believes in. He even posted about the rising level of Delhi pollution levels and urged people to do their bit.

He went with the Khalsa Aid to provide food and water to the Kerala flood victims and is a man with a strong sense of responsibility. He's also been vocal about other initiatives as well.

  18. Dressing down a notch can be as tricky as dressing up. Especially when you have somewhere important to go to, but the dress code is 'casual'. However, for celebrities, stylists always have their backs. From airport looks to red carpet event, each look is well thought out with multiple back-up alternatives by a team working solely to design a celebrity's look. Take Vijay Deverakonda for example. His airport looks and red carpet looks both have been a major source of inspiration for men across the country. Recently, for an event, Vijay wore a rather subtle outfit. He wore an NM Design studio coordinated blazer and shorts, such that it looked like he had forgotten his pants at home. Along with the suit, he had paired an SShomme shirt and a pair of adidas Originals Supercourt sneakers. These sneakers are priced at Rs 7,599. © Viral Bhayani While Vijay Deverakonda is better known for his signature haircut, he was seen with a longer hairstyle this time. This interesting combination was surprisingly working for him. Take a look: © Viral Bhayani What's the most impressive about Vijay is that his style keeps on evolving. Earlier this year, he was spotted wearing a pair of Gucci sliders worth Rs 45k. Another time, he wore tie-up pants that looked like modern lungis. In fact, Vijay's joggers also reminded us of the loose pants Ranveer Singh wore recently. Taking into account how experimental Vijay Deverakonda is, we can't wait to see his next offbeat look.

  19. The much-awaited trailer of Panipat featuring Arjun Kapoor, Kriti Sanon and Sanjay Dutt is finally here and this might just be one of the biggest war films of 2019. Set in 1761, the trailer begins with the Maratha Empire rejoicing their grip on Hindostan and flourishing with no one to challenge until an invader sets his eyes on the throne of Hindostan. The invader is none other than Ahmad Shah Abdali, who is known for his ruthlessness, cruelty and winning streak. © Vision World Standing in front of him is Sadashiv Rao Bhau, the commander-in-chief whose army might be low on man-power, but they are beaming with courage who are willing to sacrifice their lives to save their land. Based on the third battle of Panipat, the trailer features Arjun Kapoor as Sadashiv Rao Bhau, who served as the commander-in-chief of the Maratha forces during the battle, Kriti Sanon plays his wife and Sanjay Dutt as Ahmad Shah Abdali, the founder of the Durrani empire. © Vision World Talking about the trailer, the graphics, the action scenes and the majestic grandeur makes the trailer a good watch. Good enough to ignore Arjun Kapoor's poor dialogue delivery. Well, given that it's directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, we can't expect anything, but the best quality work. Although, there were moments that made everyone feel that there's something missing in the trailer and the answer is - Ranveer Singh. There were scenes that look strikingly similar to that of Padmaavat and Bajirao Mastani. Panipat is releasing on December 6, 2019. View the full article

  21. Xiaomi has been on a roll this year with smartphone launches and the Redmi Note series got a new update two weeks ago. The Remi Note 8 Pro was one of the smartphones launched by the company that features an all-new chipset, quad-camera setup and a premium design - all for Rs 14,999. While no smartphone is perfect and every device comes with its own issues, the Redmi Note 8 Pro is a strong contender for being the most reliable smartphones in this category. It offers more features than some of the premium smartphones and is now updated with features that make it a complete smartphone, let alone a budget device. Here's our review of the Redmi Note 8 Pro and why it's the most reliable device you can get right now. Design and Display © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Redmi Note 8 Pro now comes with a more streamlined and premium design than ever before. It has a glass back with Corning's Gorilla Glass 5 and has a more subtle design as compared to its predecessor. It is elegant and not too jarring as compared to other smartphones that come with flashy colours or gradient designs. The Redmi Note 8 Pro is also larger than its predecessor which may be a deal-breaker for some or an upgrade for many. At the back, you have a camera module that houses three sensors and the fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint sensor is right below the last camera sensor in the module and can be a bit confusing to use as you can smudge the sensor. It takes time to get used to it as there isn't much to differentiate between the camera sensor and the fingerprint sensor. Ideally, we would have loved to see some distance separating them, but it seems like Xiaomi prefers a more uniform look. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla At the bottom, you will now find a USB-C port which has been a long-requested feature for the Redmi Note series. Xiaomi was using the micro-USB port for the Redmi Note series until now and this is a welcome change. For Indian audiences, Xiaomi has also included a separate microSD slot for expandable storage. This feature is not available in the Chinese variant of the smartphone, making it an exclusive feature for Indian customers. The Redmi Note 8 Pro comes in three colours i.e. Halo White, Gamma Green, and Shadow Black where the 'Halo White' colour is by far our favourite. The Gamma Green also looks awesome but is an acquired taste. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla In the display department, the Redmi Note 8 Pro comes with a bigger 6.53-inch FHD+ display and has a notch at the top that houses the selfie camera. It has a resolution of 2340x1080 pixels and a screen to body ratio of 91.4%. The display itself is good enough for casual video streaming and watching videos in general. The display also supports HDR content which is rare to find on smartphones in this price range. The overall brightness of the display is sufficient enough to use directly under the sun and it can go as high as 635 nits. The panel itself peaks at 460 nits in auto mode which is more than enough for outdoor use. In terms of colour accuracy, the display does deliver reliable contrast levels. However, the colours are not as accurate as we would like them to be. The overall tone of the display is blue where even the white colour has a bluish hue. The cyan levels are also quite over-saturated which can be an issue for fussy people. Apart from these minor issues, the display is reliable enough for gaming and videos as the colour accuracy issues are not too extreme. Cameras © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Redmi Note 8 Pro comes with a quad-camera setup at the back and a 20MP selfie camera in the front notch. The primary sensor is a 64MP shooter co-developed by Xiaomi and Samsung, while other camera sensors include an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP macro lens. Overall, the camera performs better than expected and takes images with some great detail especially in the 64MP mode. We were also quite surprised by how the smartphone performed in low-light conditions while using the night mode. For a smartphone that costs less than Rs 20,000, the Redmi Note 8 Pro does an incredible job at taking pictures. The portrait mode also has drastic improvements while the macro mode needs slight improvement to capture more detail. The camera app also comes with cool editing tools such as replacing the background on portrait images, the sky replacement feature for landscape images and other cool filters you can play around with. For portrait images, you can even adjust the bokeh level post taking the image or add effects such as light trails to make it more interesting. Check out our camera samples below to see for yourself: Performance © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Redmi Note 8 Pro is the first smartphone in the series that comes with a MediaTek chipset rather than the usual Qualcomm SoC. The MediaTek G90T is the first chipset by the company that promises good gaming performance and is clocked at 2.05GHz. It's a 12nm chipset which may not be as efficient when it comes to power efficiency as the 10nm chipsets by Qualcomm. The smartphone comes with 6GB or 8GB of RAM depending on the model you pick. We were using the 8GB variant during the course of our review and it performed well in all our tests. We would have liked it to be on par with Qualcomm chipsets but unfortunately, that is not the case. The Redmi Note 8 Pro scored 495 (single-core) and 1533 (multi-core) in Geekbench 5 tests. It may not be an impressive score when compared to flagships, but is still reliable enough to use the smartphone as a daily driver. While gaming, we recommend using the medium graphics on PUBG mobile as the smartphone will last longer and not drop any frames during gameplay. In extreme settings, the game is still playable but you may experience some overheating issues. The battery size on the Redmi Note 8 Pro has also been upgraded as it now comes with a 4500mAh battery. That enables the smartphone to last at least one full day on a single charge and up to 1.5 days with moderate use. The battery can also be fast-charged at 18W with the bundled wall charger and takes about 1.3 hours for the same. You can also use any power delivery charger with the Redmi Note 8 Pro and it will charge at the same pace. The Final Say The Redmi Note 8 Pro is a good, reliable smartphone that gets the job done for power users. There are minor issues with the smartphone that we can live with as the smartphone delivers more than its worth. It comes with a great camera that can take incredible images and performs well when it comes to gaming and battery life. While the design of the smartphone is premium, we would have loved to see the fingerprint sensor placement to be distinguished from the camera sensor. Overall, if you aren't looking to spend a lot of money on a smartphone and yet want a reliable device, the Redmi Note 8 Pro is the one you're looking for. View the full article
  22. It's been a phenomenal year for smartphone buyers in the budget segment. Among options from makers like Realme, Samsung, Vivo, and Xiaomi, we now have a ton of great budget phones on the market. And Xiaomi has already been heating things up by launching two different budget phones in just the past couple of weeks. Today, we'll be talking about the Redmi 8. The Redmi series, as you probably already know, sits between Xiaomi's Redmi A series and the Redmi Note series. The Redmi 8 is no exception, and it sits right between the Redmi 8A and the new Redmi Note 8. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer There's a lot to like about the Redmi 8, but it's hard to forget that there are a ton of other options out there, some from Xiaomi itself, that are equally good or even better. So is the Redmi 8 worth buying? Let's find out! Design & Build Quality Xiaomi has been making some really good-looking phones lately and the Redmi 8 can also be added to that particular list. It sports a seamless finish with a single piece of a plastic panel covering the back and the frame. It's slightly thicker and heavier, but I don't mind using such a device if I am going to get an impressive battery life. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Both color variants of the phone have a glossy, mirror-like finish, so it's kind of hard to keep them clean, but I must say that I really love the way this phone looks. It's also not too big and rests nicely in the palm, and the curved design makes it easy to get a good grip as well. Overall, I really like the design and the build quality of the Redmi 8. In fact, there's hardly anything to hate here because the phone also has a USB Type-C at the bottom and a 3.5mm headphone jack too. Xiaomi has now got a good grip on the design and almost all of their phones, irrespective of the budget, look very elegant. Good job, Xiaomi! Display © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The Redmi 8 sports a 6.22-inch HD+ IPS display with a waterdrop-style notch at the top. Not only does it look similar to the Redmi 8A, but I'd also say it looks like any other budget phone that's out there. This one also has a chin on the bottom with 'Redmi' branding, and that's something which I'm not a big fan of. The display itself is good and I am happy to say that it's protected by Gorilla Glass 5. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer I'd say it gets decently bright so you can comfortably use it outdoors, but the colors are a bit off out of the box. You might want to tune the colors of the display from the settings to make it look good. I must point out that this isn't a high-resolution display, so you'll definitely notice the pixels if you go looking for them. Performance & Software The Redmi 8 is an entry-level phone that's powered by the Snapdragon 439 SoC and comes with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. I was kind of surprised to learn that the Redmi 8 is powered by the Snapdragon 439 SoC since it's essentially a step down from the Snapdragon 632 used by the Redmi 7. But this one does have more RAM and storage than the predecessor. So, how's the performance? Well, obviously numbers will show you different results, but I think it's just as good as the Redmi 7 if not better. These are entry-level smartphones that aren't meant to keep up with heavy lifting. The Redmi 8 will do just fine in day-to-day usage, juggling between apps, etc. Unless you're trying to stress-test by opening a bunch of apps together, you'll be happy with the Redmi 8. © MensXP Similarly, gaming isn't going to be very enjoyable on an entry-level phone. That said, you can play games on this phone if you really want to. Basic games will do just fine, but I won't recommend running Asphalt 9 and PUBG Mobile and expect a solid performance. Just keep that in mind. As for the software, the Redmi 8 is running MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie. I am not a huge fan of MIUI, but there's definitely a lot to like. Bloatware aside, it does come with a ton of features and I am sure you'll like a couple of them like gestures, theme support, etc. Camera The Redmi 8, just like the Redmi 8A, sports a dual-camera setup which includes a 12MP Sony IMX363 sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. I'd like to take a moment to point out that this is the same 12MP sensor that's used in the Pixel 3a as well. Yes, the Google Pixel 3a, the phone which has been my first choice for photography. That said, images taken on the Redmi 8 look nothing like the ones taken from a Pixel 3a. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Honestly, I'd say the images are just okay-ish at best. The dynamic range in limited and it tends to blow up the highlights. It's also worth pointing out that the phone struggles to lock focus, resulting in blurry images for the most part. Even low-light shots suffer for the most part. Don't get me wrong, the Redmi 8 can take good images provided that there's good lighting and you have steady hands. But I'd say it's still a challenge to take very good-looking images out of this phone which I'd like to share online. That is definitely a deal-breaker for me, and I am sure you'll find better camera phones out there if you're willing to spend slightly more. Anyway, here are some camera samples that I managed to take during my testing - Battery Life The Redmi 8 sports a 5,000mAh battery, and let me tell you that it's very hard to kill this phone. The huge size, coupled with not-so-powerful internals and just HD+ display makes the Redmi 8 a long-lasting phone. Even with moderate usage which includes watching videos online and browsing social media apps, I struggled to exhaust the phone's battery for almost two days. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer It's also worth pointing out that the Redmi 8 supports 18W fast charging and even the included 10W charger inside charges the phone fairly quickly. The Final Say So, is the Redmi 8 worth the asking price of Rs 7,999? Well, in all fairness, the Redmi 8 is an entry-level phone that has a lot going for it. The look and feel of the phone is pretty solid, and I really like how Xiaomi has improved the things that matter the most like battery life. Although you can't really push the Redmi 8 to get a solid performance or use it to get mind-blowing pictures, I'd still say it has plenty to offer if you're looking for a new phone in this price segment. That said, if you don't mind spending a little more, I'd suggest you check out the Redmi Note 8 which is way more impressive for the price.
  23. People adore Vijay Deverakonda, the OG Arjun Reddy. Not just for his acting but also for his stellar sense of dressing. In fact, his airport looks have been a point of major inspiration for men. Recently, for an airport look, Vijay decided to wear an intriguing outfit. He wore a plain white t-shirt with a long grey shrug and paired it with loose joggers. Rounding off his look was a hat. While Vijay Deverakonda is better known for his beard, he was seen in a clean-shaven look this time. And even this interesting combination was surprisingly working in his favour. Take a look: © Instagram/Viral Bhayani The thing about Vijay is that his versatile style keeps evolving. Earlier this year, he was spotted wearing a pair of Gucci sliders worth 45k that people couldn't stop talking about. Another time, he wore tie-up pants that looked like modern lungis. In fact, Vijay's joggers also remind us of the loose pants Ranveer Singh wore recently. When it comes to his films, Vijay Deverakonda is set for the release of his film, Meeku Maatrama Chepta this week on October 18, 2019 which is probably why we're seeing a couple of on-point outfits by him. Considering how experimental Vijay Deverakonda is, we can't wait to see his next airport look.
