  1. Xiaomi has officially confirmed that the Mi Mix 3 will have some mind-blowing specifications that nobody expected. The Chinese company teased something with a poster via Weibo, however, the company later confirmed a few details about the upcoming smartphone. The Mi Mix 3 will be among the first few smartphones that will have 5G support and will also be one of the first to feature 10GB of RAM. © Weibo We've already seen smartphones that sport 8GB of RAM which is more than enough to run Android on smartphones. 10 GB of RAM definitely feels like an overkill, but one never knows how it would work with MIUI. 5G networks seem more interesting, as this technology won't be available in every country until 2019. © Xiaomi Chipsets that support 5G connectivity are not currently available for OEM's to implement in their smartphones, which begs the question that how did Xiaomi do it. It seems like the smartphone is using an external modem, probably Qualcomm's X24 or X50 to achieve this. The two external modems are probably working in tandem with Snapdragon 845 and may cause battery drain. Pricing Details: The 6GB RAM/64GB storage variant will be priced at $510 while the Ceramic Edition will cost $660. The 6GB RAM/128GB variant will cost $555 and $705 for the Ceramic Edition. The 8GB/128GB option will be listed at $600 and $750 for the Standard and Ceramic Editions respectively. Lastly, the 8GB/256GB variant will cost $645 (Standard model) and $795 for the Ceramic Edition.
  2. YouTube experienced widespread broadcasting issues, affecting YouTube, YouTube TV, and YouTube Music, with the Google-owned streaming service down for almost two hours. YouTube said it was "working on resolving this and will let you know once fixed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you updated." Soon enough, the company announced "we're back!" and said, "if you continue to experience issues, please let us know." Almost two hours after the planet experienced the terrifying outage, the video streaming service reassured us all that the natural order of the world had been restored. The popular site rarely has an outage like this, and they're usually resolved much faster. Here's a look at some of the reactions people shared: 1. Here's One From Us! © Yash Raj Films That moment when YouTube stops working, in the middle of the week, and we can no longer binge-watch stand-up comedians and cat memes! Anushka Sharma has depicted our condition in the most precise manner! And that's everyone's reaction when YouTube is finally back up after a couple of hours! © Yash Raj Films 2. Celebrities Went Missing! YouTube has cultivated its own set of celebrities who have gathered a huge fan following thanks to their videos on the platform. Within a second of YouTube going down, they found themselves without their empire. Obviously, the outage has been temporary and they'll continue to operate. Many already faced a similar nightmare when Vine went down and took along all the stardom a few users had earned. 3. People Vent It Out On Twitter © Twitter It's become a norm now, the moment a major site experiences an outage, users shift to an alternate social network and it becomes a hot topic in no time. Some people considered the #youtubeacalypse and wondered what would happen if the site never came back. Here are a few outrages on Twitter! 4. Bollywood memes © Twitter How can we not bring in our precious collection of Bollywood memes! Here's one of Kangana Ranaut! 5. #YouTubeApocalypse © Twitter Are the Simpsons again going to predict the future? But, Google brought back the site in some time and everyone calmed down. The platform is back, our entertainment remains unhindered, and we can again go back to being a couch potato! Things always come to a good end!

  5. If the stats are to be believed, around 80 per cent of people will experience lower-back pain at some point in their lives. In a recent analysis, lower-back pain was the leading cause of physical disability worldwide. The problem certainly hasn't gotten any less common in recent time as well. You know what will really amuse you? Both athletes and sedentary people seem equally prone to lower back pain. But it's still the majority of desk jobbers who are affected by this the most. Since I help people in recovering from various musculoskeletal injuries and I have myself dealt with a herniated disc in the past, here are some really effective and easy exercises that will help you: 1) Prone Leg Extension © YouTube Take a yoga mat and lie down on your abdomen. Now lift one leg keeping your knees locked out and raise it up 30 degrees from the floor. After you have elevated the leg, you need to count to ten and return the leg to the starting position. Then repeat the same with the other leg. If this seems too difficult to perform, you can bend your knees to make it a little less challenging. This exercise strengthens your glutes and the lower back. 2) Knees To Chest © YouTube Lie down on your back with your legs straightened out. Now lift one leg up while bending your knees and try to bring the knee as close to your chest as possible. You have to try to touch your chest with your quads or bring it as close as possible. Feel the stretch and maintain it for around 5 seconds before releasing the stretch. Your other leg will remain constant on the floor while you perform this movement. Now do the same movement for the other leg. 3) Bird Dog © Builtlean The Bird Dog exercise can help you strengthen the stabilizer muscles in the core by relieving excessive pressure on the lower back. To perform the bird dog exercise, come down on the floor with your hands and knees touching the floor. Now position your shoulders over your wrists and your hips over your knees. Keeping your abdominal muscles engaged; lift your right leg straight behind you. Keep them at the hips level. Once your core feels stable, lift your left arm forward. Stretch your body out long. Keep the back of your neck in line with your spine. Hold for a few seconds before returning to your starting position.

  6. If you're still confused about the 'type' of girl you'd like to date, we can make it rather simple for you. How, you ask? Well, by throwing famous pop-culture references your way of course! By that I mean, we're so intrigued by popular character sketches on TV shows and series, that we imagine finding that very person to be acquainted with. It's quite fascinating really. But what if these shows are actually throwing subliminal messages your way telling you to find the right kind of people? Because let's face it, you always end up with the wrong kind, most times in your life. © 20th Television For instance, I was watching re-runs of 'How I Met Your Mother' (HIMYM) and I thought to myself, "man it'd be cool to have a woman like Robin Scherbatsky in my life". And why not! She's smart, she doesn't give a f*** about the most inane things in life and she's hot. Maybe you can't find fictional characters that often around you, but they do leave you with certain traits you can look for in the next girl you'd want to date. So, this time I am choosing Robin for you, because man, she's cool as hell! For all you know, you can learn a lot about relationships, from Robin's character in 'How I Met Your Mother'. (1) She Doesn't Rush Into Relationships Robin is the kinda girl who likes to build a foundation before jumping into a relationship, just like any smart person should ideally be doing. Even though Ted made a grand gesture by stealing a blue French horn for her from a restaurant, she didn't make a quick decision about dating him instantly, even though he put her on an uncomfortable pedestal. Robin is the kind of girl who takes her time in a relationship and doesn't get too carried away. So, if you find someone who takes it slow and doesn't build your expectation, that's a mighty good thing for you. (2) She's On Your Face Yeah, Robin doesn't mince words. She tells it like it is. So, if you're a fan of tough love at times, you need a Robin. If she doesn't like that shirt on you, she'll tell you straight up, if she thinks she needs to put her career before the relationship, she'll be honest about it. If you like your woman to sugar-coat things for you, then she isn't the girl for you. (3) She Never Gets 'Hangry' I've been with women who get hangry so quickly, you need to find food as soon as possible. While that's endearing, it's also annoying at the same time. But with Robin, that'll never be the case. Remember that episode in HIMYM, where she went hangry after her 'cleanse' when the gang decided to search for the 'perfect burger'?. Yeah, she didn't lose her cool then and she was a good sport! (4) She's A Scotch Drinker Women who know their Scotch are the perfect catch. They like finer things in life and are usually independent enough. She knows how to hold her drink and is very selective in her choice of Scotch. Reason enough? (5) Her Sense Of Self Rocks Do you want an insecure GF always looking for validation from you? I don't think so. If anything, you'd go right ahead and compliment her yourself, without her having to constantly ask you. Well, Robin doesn't need any compliments because she's very secure about the person she is and the way she looks. She knows she's hot and she owns it and she's her own knight in shining armour. (6) She's A Good Friend If she was friends with you before you started dating and things didn't work out between the two of you when you dated, she'll still be around to be a good friend. Not just to you, but she's a good friend in general. She stands up for all her friends and is always there when they need her support. (7) She's Open To Trying The Kinkiest Thing(s) In Bed Isn't that the dream? Well, if it is, then Robin's your go-to girl! If you remember the episode where she's describing a sexual act with a popular celebrity, you'll know what I am talking about. Oh and she's not averse to cameras in the bedroom either. With prior permission of course! (8) She's Just A lot Of Fun Having a Robin in your life is like a constant happy trip. She's crazy, she'll join you in any fun you'd like to have and she definitely isn't a buzz kill. Hell, she'll even root for the same team as you and celebrate the victory with a scotch and cigar session, while giving you the best time she can, in bed! I reckon you begin the search, now!
  7. What is it about a steaming cup of freshly brewed tea, that instantly elevates your mood and almost makes you feel powerful enough to conquer the world? Okay, maybe that was an exaggeration, but bhavnao ko samjho yaar. It's almost as if there isn't a thing in the world that a cup of tea can't solve. Well, mostly. A good cuppa made to your personal liking is powerful enough to evoke nostalgia stronger than any joint, on a given day. It holds the power to take you back to the chai ki tapri in some old gully back from the day, where the chai transported you to another world. © MensXP Drinking tea is more of a daily ritual in our country, and it is as much about the taste, as it is about the experiences it lends to the consumer. So, when Chaayos' co-founder Nitin Saluja was looking for a similar chai-experience one fine night in the US, and was disappointed to not find any, a possibility stirred in his heart. Two years later in 2010, after having quit his fine job in the US, Nitin came back to India and got in touch with Raghav Verma, a friend and former colleague from the company Opera. The IITians hit it off instantly, and in the following interactions, Nitin shared his dream of starting a tea joint for chai lovers in India, much like Starbucks for coffee maniacs, where people can enjoy a good brew even outside their homes. © MensXP Having dabbled with startup ventures previously, and being a tea lover himself, Raghav came onboard for the project almost immediately. For the next two years, Nitin and Raghav launched a full-fledged market research, and the results only brought them good news. India is a country of tea drinkers, where 30 cups of tea are sold for every cup of coffee, and this revelation promised a lot of potential for a lucrative business. Then came the first Chaayos outlet in Cyber City, Gurgaon on November 2012, which was built with the aim to serve a fresh, custom-made cup of chai to its consumers. They have taken customisation to a whole new level by offering 12,000 different ways of how one can enjoy their cup of tea, along with a number of delectable tea accompaniments they introduced over time, which are a major hit with their customers. © MensXP Cut to 2018, the duo has managed to launch 52 chai cafes across Gurgaon, Delhi, Noida, Ghaziabad, Chandigarh, Mumbai and Thane. What makes Nitin and Raghav's concept click with the consumers, is their acknowledgement of the fact that “there is no one right chai” for India, and that's how the 'Meri Wali Chai' made its first appearance on the Chaayos menu. Now we know what went into coining that name. Since then, they have not looked back, and the brand has only taken more and more steps forward. However, this success wouldn't have been theirs to celebrate, had they paid heed to the naysayers, who constantly told them how bad an idea this was. They were explicitly told that they would never be “as cool as coffee” but even that changed when they had the same customers come back thrice a day for a sip of their tea blends. © MensXP This went on to become their USP- a unique experience around tea. They have had 300% year-on-year growth, with 42% month-on-month customer repeat rates, which has constantly added to their nationwide popularity. Yet, the co-founders haven't forgotten their early days, and the personal challenges they have had to overcome to reach to this point. Their families were shocked and more than a little apprehensive about the big move their IIT graduate sons were making, by leaving their fancy jobs to sell chai. But they pursued their dreams, and as we all know now, the venture has been more than successful. For all of you, who want to give your own dream a chance, this is what Nitin has to say. “Have a lot of perseverance and be at it” no matter what life throws your way. As for Raghav, he believes that “quality associations are key” and that's what makes an organisation magically good. They have a great story to share, so check out what they've got to say here:
  8. A majority of the bros who lift have one single goal that is to be as swole as possible and have a bicep bigger than the other bros in the gym. Okay, that may be a bit exaggerated (or not) but the goal for most dudes is to build muscle and look buff. It is hardly ever that some dudes end up achieving this as they focus on all the wrong stuff and burn themselves to the ground. The mistakes these guys often do is to try to 'confuse' the muscle or buy some 'magical' supplements etc. © Thinksock None of this will work and for your muscle building agenda to work, you need to have a few things in place: 1. Eat The most overlooked aspect of muscle-building phase. For building muscle, you need to eat in a calorie surplus. Doing this will ensure your body performs its daily functions and still has some calories left to build muscle. If you are not eating in a calorie surplus consistently, you are simply wasting your time. And again, by calorie surplus, it does not mean you eat as many calories as possible. Even that works, but you would be bulky in a way you do not like. Start with a 10% surplus and slowly add calories to it as and when needed. 2. Work Out Using A Full Range Of Motion Jerk bicep curls or half squats will not really do much. To gain muscle, you need to load and then overload your muscle progressively. To ensure that you are properly recruiting muscle when lifting and want to grow maximally, a full range of motion is paramount. It may initially even mean lowering weights and if that is needed, do so. 3. Get Strong A wrong notion that bodybuilders need to only workout in the hypertrophy range and keep the pump on exists. There is nothing wrong with working out in that range but just that range, it is a mistake. Think of it logically, if you get stronger, you can lift more weights and you can later lift heavier in the hypertrophy range as well. 4. Vary Your Rep Ranges For Different Exercises Your body has different types of muscle fibers that respond to different stimuli. Do some strength work in the 4 to 8 rep range, some hypertrophy work in the 12 to 15 rep range and even some high rep training in the 20+ rep ranges for isolation exercises. And when you do this, ensure that you are training heavy. If you set out for an exercise with 12 reps, you should not end the set with enough strength to push 6 more reps. If that happens, you are not lifting heavy enough. © Thinksock 5. Train With A Higher Frequency Do not waste your time doing one body part once a week. Studies have shown that your muscle protein synthesis rates drop to baseline after 48 hours of training them. If your goal is maximal muscle growth, waiting whole 7 days before lifting again or training it again means lost opportunity for gains. Start with a 2x frequency for hitting every muscle per week and then slowly push it upwards as needed.

  9. Nine years after its foundation stone was laid, Sikkim finally got its first ever airport in Pakyong today. The aerodrome was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. © Twitter PM Modi is on a two-day visit to the state and arrived on Sunday. While most people were busy looking at the beauty of this engineering marvel, we saw something that was sort of hidden from all of us- PM Modi's photography skills. © Twitter People often complain about PM Modi's national and international tours. However, we don't want to bring politics in here, so we'll only talk about how his trips almost always give us major travel goals. In all honesty, he is living a life every wanderlust dreams of living. © Twitter Had PM Modi not been a politician, he could have made for a good travel photographer and these pictures are proof. Alright! Maybe, we exaggerated a bit, but it's the effort that counts, right? He clicked these pictures from his chopper and shared them on social media with the caption, "Serene and splendid! Clicked these pictures on the way to Sikkim. Enchanting and incredible! #IncredibleIndia." Serene and splendid! Clicked these pictures on the way to Sikkim. Enchanting and incredible! #IncredibleIndia pic.twitter.com/OWKcc93Sb1 — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) September 23, 2018 These pictures not only manage to capture the beauty of Sikkim but also have wanderlust written all over them. Talking about the airport, it's located on top of a hill nearly 2 km above Pakyong village at 4,500 feet above sea level between the Himalayas. It also happens to be North-East India's first greenfield airport. The cost of constructing this airport is more than Rs. 600 crores and it is located around 33 km from Gangtok. Reportedly, the first commercial flight from Pakyong will take off on October © Twitter The inauguration of this airport and these pictures are reasons enough to make travel plans to Sikkim soon. What do you guys think?
  10. Looks like 2018 so far has been a great year for Bollywood movies, money wise. There have been a bunch of hit movies and also some really terrible ones that basically sucked, but still managed to join the elite 100 Crore Club for no apparent reason. (I'm lying, I know the reason, some people prefer mediocrity over actually good movies with substance) So, here's a list of all the movies that a lot of people wanted to see and well, that worked out in the favour of the makers because, let's just say, these movies made a shit ton of money. Here's the list of Bollywood movies to cross Rs. 100 crores in 2018 so far: 1. Padmaavat I mean, after all the controversies and so much hate and riots, if this didn't do well at the box office, we all should've really been worried about the universe being broken. After its release, it became one of the fastest 100 crore earner ever by managing to earn a whopping amount of Rs. 166.50 crore within a week. It even went on to collect around 500 crores overall, and I feel like a lot of people just went to see what the hype was all about and why some people wanted to cut off Deepika Padukone's nose. 2. Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety I don't think people initially expected this movie to do so well, but hey, we were all in for a pleasant surprise. The movie ended up crossing the 100 crore mark within a month of its release. 3. Raid Ajay Devgn's 'Raid' has a lifetime collection of Rs. 103.07 crore at the box office so it just tipped over and its way into the club. 4. Baaghi 2 People love Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani for their respective talents, but they love them, even more, when they're together, so this movie was destined to do well from the beginning as it seems. By being a truly entertaining movie, it managed to collect about Rs. 164.38 crore. 5. Raazi Everyone loves Alia Bhatt and everyone loves Vicky Kaushal, and when you add a kickass storyline with some stellar acting, the movie honestly starts selling itself. The movie ended up getting great reviews and joined the Rs. 100 crore club in less than a month. 6. Sanju This one shouldn't really surprise anyone, to be honest, since 'Sanju' is like the movie of the year. The movie was watched by people who love Bollywood, and also by those who don't, but it was applauded equally by everyone. The movie has not only earned more than Rs.100 crores, it has also made its way into the top 10 highest grossing Indian movies, not just Bollywood movies. 7. Race 3 Now, this one doesn't surprise me, but it disappoints me immensely. But, what can you do, people can't help but watch Salman Khan movies, apparently. The movie has reportedly earned more than Rs.166 crores at the Box Office and mediocrity won! 8. Stree Another surprise hit, but we all know how great of an actor Rajkummar Rao is and his movies deserve at least one watch. The movie ended up crossing the Rs.100 crore mark within three weeks after some great reviews. 9. Gold Of course, the list wouldn't have been complete without Akshay Kumar and he literally struck gold with 'Gold'. The movie has a total collection of over Rs. 105 crores. 10. Veere Di Wedding I don't think people liked the movie that much, but with such a huge star cast, everyone was curious about it and well, it paid off. The movie has reportedly earned over Rs. 138.80 crores.
  11. This year has been very interesting for Vivo, as they've not only gained market share in focus countries like India, but have also released new products that stand apart. The Vivo NEX brought in a sliding camera setup, which abolished the need for a notch. While this implementation is still questionable and can be judged only over a longer period of time, it undoubtedly is interesting. The next-in-line is the in-display fingerprint scanner. Vivo showed off the X21 in May, the first phone in India to have the technology. Back then, the phone was powered by a midrange chipset, but priced quite high. In fact, it went up directly against the OnePlus 6. Now after a few months, the company has launched the Vivo V11 Pro, which is basically the same as the X21 but priced a lot cheaper. The first thing you'll notice is obviously, the in-display fingerprint scanner. With the V11 Pro, Vivo has managed to bring a new and striking feature to the midrange, and things are even more interesting, because Xiaomi's POCO F1 has been on a roll. In the same segment, we also have the OPPO F9 Pro and the evergreen Nokia 7 Plus. Is Vivo able to make a mark with the Vivo V11 Pro? Is the in-display fingerprint scanner worth the hype? Can the phone stand against the POCO F1? Let's find out. 1. Design & Hardware: © MensXP The first thing you'll notice is the body, which is built of polycarbonate. But the back has a slight gradient that Vivo likes to call the Starry Night. It has an adequate shine to it, but the premium feel that you get from metal is missing. We've all come to expect phones in this range to have a metal build now, but this has been the primary area where Vivo has cut corners. The phone isn't slippery and looks stunning from the front. The screen has a high screen-to-body ratio of 91.27 per cent, the chins are small, and the notch is redesigned. Similar to the OPPO F9 Pro, the V11 Pro has a water-droplet style notch that houses the front camera only. The earpiece is located above the display and the infrared scanner is on the right side. The phone has a 6.4-inch Full View AMOLED display and it's among the best panels we've seen in this range. It is very bright, the colours are slightly oversaturated by default, and the viewing angles are perfect. The saturation and temperature of the display can be changed from the settings menu. © MensXP The bottom of the phone has a speaker grill on the left, the micro-USB charging port in the centre and the audio jack on right. On the back, the Vivo branding is located in the centre while the vertical dual camera setup will always remind you of the iPhone X. The power button is located at a convenient height, you won't have to stretch your fingers. Coming to the in-display fingerprint scanner, it is definitely a lot more improved than the X21's, and the most common question everyone has asked is, "Is it usable in day-to-day usage?" Yes, it is. The scanner is sufficiently fast and accurate. You do need to place your finger a little more firmly, but other than that, there is no difference. The software is well optimised and thought off to make full use of the scanner, even if you lift your phone, the AMOLED display will show you the scanner circle with futuristic animations. I've hardly had to actually use the power button to unlock the phone. © MensXP The phone also comes with Face Unlock support that works in the dark as well, thanks to an infrared sensor. The authentication is fast and rarely fails to recognise me. The SIM tray is located on the left side while the power button and the volume rockers are on the right. Even the case that Vivo has shipped with the phone is of good quality and feels solid in hand. 2. Performance: © MensXP The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 660 processor along with 6GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage, there are no other memory configurations. The storage can be expanded to 256GB via a microSD card. In a nutshell, the phone is fast and smooth. I've rarely encountered any lags or stutters, but the UI does feel dated. We'll talk more on that in the software section. Games like PUBG were a little disappointing though, even at medium settings it encountered a lot of stutters and felt like the phone is struggling throughout the game. Also, even though a high screen-to-body ratio is good for looks, it becomes a major problem while gaming, you just don't have enough place to hold the phone firmly. © MensXP Except for games, everything else runs smooth. Even when I'm shifting through multiple apps like Outlook, WhatsApp, multiple tabs on Chrome, and Google Drive, the phone would go on without a glitch. The phone is backed by a 3400mAh battery, and it is more than sufficient to get you through one full day of heavy usage. The one thing I loved about the phone is its standby time, it hardly takes up any power even when you have 4G / WiFi connected full time. Thanks to the AMOLED panel, even the display isn't very hungry. The battery supports Vivo's new dual-engine fast charging, I could get it from 5 per cent to 96 per cent within 1 hour 40 minutes. 3. Software: © MensXP While everything about the phone is well above average, Vivo desperately needs to update its FunTouch OS UI. Since the Vivo V5 Plus, I haven't noticed any difference. Obviously, it has been heavily inspired by iOS, and sadly Vivo is stuck at iOS 10 while the world has moved on to iOS 12. The UX feels very old especially when you use gesture navigation. It is outright visible that the company has added the gestures on top of the previous UI, making it cumbersome. The two modules just don't feel well integrated. The animations often feel slow, and the gesture to open recently used apps is terribly slow. I won't be too hard on the software because it is something that can be fixed with an update, and I hope Vivo takes into consideration. Now that I've established that the UI is old, it does bring in a host of added nifty functionality like support for dual-apps and deeper customization. The phone comes with Vivo's version of an email, calendar, and a few other utility apps. The phone also comes with some bloatware like Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram. 4. Camera: © MensXP The V11 Pro has a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor on the back, the same ones we've seen on the X21. The pictures are very detailed and sharp during the daytime and there is hardly a shutter lag. Dynamic range is decent and the portrait mode is spot-on in detecting the depth, it also comes with some added customization options in the camera app. The colour reproduction is very accurate. During macros, the subject is sharp and the background is perfectly creamy. In low-light, the setup performs surprisingly well, but there is a slight shutter lag, but if you have a steady hand, the output is superior. The noise levels are low and currently exposed. © MensXP The front has a 25-megapixel single sensor that is very sharp and detailed. The portrait mode also works perfectly and the detection of hair and headgear is properly processed and it also has a few extra filters like natural light, studio light, and rainbow light. We can also put in a monochrome background. The Camera app is again heavily inspired by Apple but comes in with a tonne more functionality. There is obviously a pro mode available along with Vivo's signature beautification modes, that have a very deep level of customization. You can change your skin tone, as well as the size of your nose. The camera can be also triggered via voice commands or palm gesture. © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP © MensXP The Final Say © MensXP Overall, I'd recommend this phone to everyone. When compared against the POCO F1, the V11 Pro misses out only on the top of the line performance. The camera is superior, has all the trendy features, and the in-display fingerprint scanner is a good cherry on the top. The POCO F1 is for those who need raw performance on the go, the Vivo V11 Pro is suited for a more casual user base. If you like iOS, you'll feel right at home, along with the added openness of the Android ecosystem.
  12. So, you're soon going to be 22 and life at this point seems like a world full of possibilities (and uncertainties), which is possibly what made you click on this article, in the hopes of figuring out what to really expect from this awkward stage in life. You don't feel like your older, fresh-out-of-school self but neither do you feel like you're up to adulting anytime soon, post your graduation. Well, it doesn't matter where you are at in your life currently, because these 15 things are applicable to all, and will surely help you navigate through what is to come in the near future: 1. Take Care Of Your Body © Pexels The sooner we learn about our body and master how to take care of it, the better. With all the junk we put into our system and the screwed up sleep patterns in our early 20s, this one is a must. 2. Learn To Cook Your Favourite Dish Whether it is rajma chawal or a loaded cheesy pizza, master cooking that one dish/food that can pull you out of a black hole on any given day. Trust us, you'll know what it's worth during the moment of need. 3. Be Alone © Pexels Yeah, brutal but honest too. By this point in your life you must master how to step out into the big, trying world outside with no other company but yours alone. Whether it means going to a movie alone, or checking out that restaurant you wanted to try, learn to enjoy your company. 4. Get Over Fears That Are Holding You Back This one could be anything, from interviews to public speaking and even extreme sports, no matter what fear, master the art of scraping them off your list the first chance you get. 5. Take Out Time For Your Fave Sports/Hobby © Pexels Yes, you need to master the trick that will allow you to indulge in your favourite sports or hobby, as you step into the corporate conundrum and suddenly feel there is nothing left in your life besides keying numbers into your laptop at work. 6. Own Up To Your Mistake 22 is often regarded as a tricky age. It's like you aren't too young anymore but neither too old and yet, people want you to somehow do the right thing, always. But that isn't how it's going to be. You will make mistakes, so you better master how to own up to them and learn from those mistakes. 7. Pen Down A Solid Signature © Pexels Never thought that's even important, right? Well, it is. It's a mark you are going to leave on every official document! So you better get a dope signature figured out for yourself ASAP. 8. Manage Your Own Laundry If you've lived alone, then you would have probably gotten a hang of it. If not, then this is just about the right time to start. Try it, clean clothes aren't all that bad. 9. Manage Your Finances © Pexels It isn't just the piggy bank or pocket money that should be your concern anymore. Major finances that involve paychecks and doing taxes need to be undertaken at the earliest. 10. Receive Constructive Criticism Positively Well, this was to come your way sooner or later. Criticism is every other Indian's favourite pastime, so count on receiving plenty of it. But what you also need to master is how to receive the constructive criticism positively and leave the rest of the BS behind. 11. Learn To Speak A Foreign Language © Pexels Today's global citizen needs to know as many foreign languages as possible. Who knows where fate (work) might take you, right? Be sure to master at least one foreign language by 22. You'll thank yourself later. 12. Challenge Yourself & Move Out Of Your Comfort Zone While you're still young, it's best to never get too comfortable with anything in your life. Your dreams, your worldview and even your job, no matter where you are in your life, become comfortable with the idea of constantly challenging yourself. 13. Make Friends You Can Trust For The Long Haul © Pexels Ah, yes. A tricky one to figure out but this one is essential. Make friends you can trust and count on. By this time, you may have figured out a few of them, but don't settle till you find the ones you can trust with your life. 14. Let Go Of Toxic Friendships This one follows from the previous point. You gotta learn to let go of a few “friends” in the process of finding the 'friends like family'. Cutting out certain people, particularly toxic ones, from your life is a necessary step you must learn if you want to move ahead. 15. Believe In Yourself © Pexels Last but surely not the least. There's a long, adventurous life awaiting you with a gazillion experiences to live through. So, you have to master the art of placing undying faith in yourself and your capabilities. Post that, the world will be your oyster! How many have you checked off the list?
  13. 'Bigg Boss 12' has started with a bang and we can't get enough of the delicious supply of drama. Like it or not, BB is the talk of the town and almost everyone around us is definitely talking about who is doing what inside the House. It's only been a couple of days and Anup Jalota, Jasleen Matharu and former Indian cricketer Sreesanth are making headlines. While Anup and Jasleen are the talk of the town for their 'relationship', Sreesanth is getting into heated arguments, as expected. He simply can't seem to have people messing around him and recently, he ended up having an argument with commoner Somi Khan. Things got so out of control, that they started attacking each other's upbringing, to make matters worse. View this post on Instagram Will this be @sreesanthnair36's last night in the #BB12 house? Janne ke liye dekhiye #BiggBoss12 tonight at 9 PM! @iamappyfizz @oppomobileindia @thegarnierman @letsdroom A post shared by Colors TV (@colorstv) on Sep 18, 2018 at 11:53pm PDT Well, we all know how Sreesanth can get quite aggressive and true to form, the former Indian cricketer lost his cool and threatened to leave Salman Khan's show if this is how things were to continue in the House. However, if this is what he plans to do, his decision will cost him a lot more money than he thinks. The player will lose around Rs 50 lakh if he quits the show mid-way. As he is a celebrity contestant, the contract comes with a hefty clause. View this post on Instagram Socha tha karenge jodiyon ko all-out, but @sreesanthnair36 ne task se kiya walk out. BB conference mein aaj raat hoga ek naya dhamaka! Make sure you tune in at 9 PM. #BiggBoss12 #BB12 A post shared by Colors TV (@colorstv) on Sep 18, 2018 at 2:02am PDT This isn't the first time he has done something like this. Previously, he had walked out of another reality show 'Jhalak Dhikla Jaa' after he got into a heated argument with the judging panel consisting of Madhuri Dixit, Remo D'Souza and Karan Johar, when they gave him their feedback about the flaws in his performance. View this post on Instagram He's definitely got both the swag and style! Catch cricketer @sreesanthnair36's mind-blowing entry only on #BB12 . @BeingSalmanKhan #BiggBoss12 A post shared by Colors TV (@colorstv) on Sep 16, 2018 at 10:49am PDT Talking about his reaction he told PTI, “The outburst was more because of the disappointment than anger, as I was doing extremely well on the show during the past six weeks. I think I just had a bad day. It was the wrong timing and wrong choice of song.” Well, it will be interesting to see if Sree is willing to pay the massive amount in exchange for his freedom, or if he finds a way to survive in the House.
  14. Samsung smartphones are known to get leaked well before its official launch and sometimes the leak comes accidentally from the South-Korean company. The next flagship to launch for Samsung is the 10th anniversary Galaxy S10 and some details about the smartphone has surfaced online. © Twitter The upcoming device is expected to have an all-new design, an unconventional triple camera setup and a new 'ultrasonic' in-display reader. It's also rumoured that Samsung is working on a proper Face ID alternative and will probably incorporate it on the Galaxy S10. The leak was spotted by reliable leaker Ice Universe, where he came across a benchmarking test for the Galaxy S10 and it seems like the leak comes straight from Samsung. The test revealed details that give us a clearer picture about the new smartphone. According to the test, the Galaxy S10 has a new 19:9 aspect ratio with a resolution of 3,040 x 1,440 pixels. To put things into perspective, the Galaxy S9 has an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Reports suggest that Samsung will not be making the phone any bigger than its predecessor but rather make the screen taller by removing top and bottom bezels. © MensXP We know that Samsung tries to hide their Galaxy S model by using different code names. For example, Samsung uses names such as 'SM-G4x5' to hide smartphones from the general public before launch. This particular Galaxy S10 leak had a similar code name and was referenced as 'SM-G405F' in the benchmark tests. There's a good chance that this leak comes directly from Samsung, albeit accidentally. © Twitter Of course, since this is just a leak based on a benchmark test, it should be treated with a grain of salt. Leaks generally turn out to be true especially when they are based on a benchmark test. However, one never knows that this might be a prototype device by Samsung that may never see day of light. We'll know more about the Samsung Galaxy S10 near its official launch and that seems a bit far away as of now. Source: Forbes
  15. Maniesh Paul is one of the most famous hosts of the general entertainment category in the country right now, and he obviously does an amazing job at showcasing eclectic talents. Little did we know that he will do an equally brilliant job at showcasing to us our own financial insecurities, just by wearing a pair of shoes and carrying a fanny pack (that costs Rs 90,000). © Viral Bhayani Maniesh was carrying a red fanny pack by Gucci - the 'Gucci Print leather belt bag', which has the logo of Gucci printed on hibiscus red leather, inspired by colourful retro prints from the '80s. He clearly loves it, as he is pairing it with multiple outfits. © Viral Bhayani Before we were done marvelling at the fanny pack, we saw his shoes - and let's just say now all we can think of is, we want them bad. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Maniesh is wearing the Supreme x Nike Air More Uptempo “Suptempo” basketball sneakers in Varsity red and white. Designed by Wilson Smith, the Nike Air More Uptempo – known for boasting large “AIR” branding on the lateral and medial sides – is one of the boldest basketball sneakers ever. © Viral Bhayani © Fight Club Now, coming to how much they cost, they might not be as expensive as his Gucci fanny pack, but they sure don't come cheap. They cost around $750, which when converted to INR comes around Rs 55K. © Viral Bhayani Maniesh clearly is making the most out of them, and rightfully so. We would, too!
  16. Google is a household name around the globe, everyone knows it, and uses it. The company is a lot more than just a search engine, everyone uses Android, Gmail, YouTube, and many more apps, all belonging to Google. In a similar way, Amazon too has expanded rapidly and made in-roads to many new markets. Unlike Google, Amazon is dependent on both online as well as offline business operations. While Google is the world's largest advertising company, Amazon is valued at almost US$ 1 trillion, right next to Apple. Now considering the Indian market, the two companies have made it large here locally. © Reuters Since its entry in the country in 2013, Amazon has quickly expanded its operations and holds 30 per cent e-commerce market share. The company has long surpassed the homegrown Flipkart, completely knocked out Snapdeal, and all other smaller players are either being acquired or going bust. Google being an Internet company does not depend on offline operations, but has managed to focus on the market by making practical products like Google Pay, Files Go, RailWire, and on a wider spectrum the Android Go platform. Advertising revenue from the country is booming, Google Cloud is expanding its data centres, and even the Pixel and Android One phones are selling like hot cakes. © IndianExpress Now, let's have a look at another American company that has been in the country for more than a decade and is currently the most valued in the world, Apple. Even Apple holds an enormous amount of brand recognition in India, but where are the sales? For years the behemoth has said it's serious about India and wants to play a bigger role, but year after year we see no change. In fact, Apple's market share is down to just 1 per cent in Q2 2018, according to Counterpoint Research. We can argue that India is a developing country and the majority of the sales are from the budget and midrange segments, but there is still a much bigger premium market than just 1 per cent. This becomes even more evident when we see OnePlus and Samsung selling their top-tier devices in huge quantities. © Samsung Now, the argument shifts. How can we compare a OnePlus or Samsung flagship with Apple? Globally, yes we can. But, not in India. The price difference is too big. To put this in perspective, the Note 9 costs Rs 67,900 while the iPhone Xs starts at INR 99,900. The two are supposed to be around the same price segment, but Apple has created a new bubble for itself, the ultra-premium segment. And this is where the problem lies. Apple's constant ignorance of the market. They say they care, but their actions say a different story. It's easy to blame India's 20 per cent import duty for the price difference, but after all these years, every company has found a solution, Make in India. Everyone does it, so does Apple, but only the iPhone SE and iPhone 6. I really doubt they'll make the flagships anytime soon, while on the other hand Samsung has a huge facility in Noida and is churning out phones that also get exported. © Twitter/Narendra Modi Google is being smarter as well, they don't have the scale to produce locally, but to stay relevant and rational, they take a hit on the pocket in terms of premium. That's what you'd expect a giant to do, especially in the beginning. Also, the Pixel is just one of many Google products, not the primary revenue source. Why is Apple not able to simply throw around money in India and expand rapidly? Because it always has run-ins with the government. Apple wants to directly operate stores in the country, meaning direct selling, not being dependent on the resellers. But the country's law says it needs to produce 30 per cent of its products in the country before it received approval to open retail stores. © 9to5Mac The company was stuck in a year-long disagreement with TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) over their reluctance to support the watchdog's do-not-disturb (DND) app. Apple had refused to carry TRAI's DND app on its App Store, saying it accesses a user's calls and message logs, which is against its privacy policy. According to an August report, the two have finally come to an agreement with the rollout of iOS 12. If these weren't enough, the company has also put Apple Pay on hold because the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) has made data localisation compulsory for companies to set up a payment service in India. While this is a minor setback and even Amazon is affected, Apple is facing multiple issues on multiple fronts. Quite honestly, Apple has the capability to breach the market and establish itself rapidly just like Amazon and Google. But, the company already faces too many hurdles.
  17. Imagine you are scrolling through your Facebook feed, the autoplay is turned on and you are greeted by a wild cacophony of sounds that instantly make you cringe and you wish you could get a detox done, right then and there. But alas, that is not to be. There is no coming back from the trauma of living through Tahir Shah's 'Eye To Eye' even if it was merely for a few seconds. While most decent human beings would try to recuperate from the shock and let it go, I decided to turn my pain into a means of mass torture to put things in sync with the 'Morose Monday' #feels. In the last few years, numerous 'viral' songs hit our screens and made us pull at our hair in the sheer hope that anything besides this, would be a better source of agony. So I decided to pick the 7 most terrible (read dardnaak) viral songs in the recent years that made our ears bleed. 1. Dhinchak Pooja 'Selfie Maine Le Li Aaj' & 'Dilon Ka Shooter Hai Mera Scooter' With 36,118,838 and 12,160,485 views respectively, who would guess these are a sham in the name of songs? When Dhinchak Pooja's 'Selfie Maine Le Li Aaj' came out, it was so widely circulated across social media platforms that you couldn't have escaped it even if you tried. The pain was for real and lasted for weeks to come even after you went ahead on a social media detox. 2. Pikotaro - 'PPAP' (Pen Pineapple Apple Pen) While the obscure lyrics of this one apparently made the song “catchy” for some and even evoked laughter at first, I wouldn't say I could tolerate it for a second time, even as it was picking up the pace in India. My Instagram and Facebook feed was literally blowing up with this guy's face and his strange song talking about a non-existent fruity pen that nobody really gave a shit about. Also, what was with that outfit?! 3. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan - 'Love Charger' God must have his ways of bringing people to justice because after putting people through this torture, it is only a miracle the victims have survived to tell their stories. I wonder who wrote such horrid lyrics and then added such ear-puncturing music to produce such a ghastly composition that will trouble generations to come, who have access to this god-awful piece. 4. Om Prakash - 'Bol Na Aunty Aau Kya' It is with a heavy heart that I am including this song to the story, because neither the song nor the lyrics possess anything of value to go viral. The lyrics are sexist, demeaning and introduce rape as the normal outcome of wearing short clothes or hanging out with friends. The very fact that people found such a derogatory song entertaining and funny is appalling, to say the least. 5. Vennu Mallesh - 'It's My Life Whatever I Wanna Do' Another masterpiece that shattered the little semblance of tolerance we had for upcoming talents. Who decides to fund such songs and even rent out an entire studio for such a joke of a music video? And to top it all, this went viral because, of course, we had never heard anything of the sort before. 6. Rinku Bhabhi - 'Mere Husband Mujhe Pyaar Nahi Karte' I wouldn't lie but I had a fit of laughter the first time I heard this song. I know I said the first time because I am guilty of having heard it two more times when my sister and best friend decided to make me relive the moments of “ecstasy” during two different occasions. I really cannot say I can make much sense out of this. 7. Taher Shah - 'Eye To Eye' & 'Angel' I really have no words for these two jewels right here, but if you have heard these songs, know that your life wasn't the same after. Also, you gotta watch both the videos to share my pain. Please. Tell us, which of these make it to your most painful viral videos list?
  18. We are no strangers to the gazillion superstitions our moms and grandparents seem to believe in. We have literally grown up watching them follow weird beliefs, some of which they even forced us to follow, whether we liked it or not. While most of us feel these beliefs are baseless, over the years a lot of people have managed to provide probable reasons as to why such superstitions are followed in our country so faithfully. Whether there is any truth in them or not, is not what we're about to discuss. Instead, our focus today is to take up a few, popular superstitions in our society that even men have followed at least once, at some point in time. Whether it was because you were young and gullible or because you fret over things going bad, no matter the reasons, you ended up believing it and gave in to this craziness. 1. Teen Tigada, Kaam Bigada © Excel entertainment Can we get over this one? This was such a regular during our playground meetups or when we divided up our teams for a match. Nobody wanted to add an extra third player for the fear of the rest of them screaming “teen tigada, kaam bigada” at the top of their voice. It kinda almost felt we might end up losing the match after all. 2. Kaali Billi Ne Rasta Kaat Diya, Ruk Jao Kisi Aur Ko Pehle Jaane Do © Flickr None of us can claim that this has never happened to us. It was as if ever since we came across this saying, all the black cats in the locality conspired to cross our path at all the wrong times. We still remember the fear it evoked when we had similar rendezvous on important days of exams and results. We ensured somebody else crossed the road ahead of us. 3. Mangalvaar Ko Maans-Macchi Nahi Khana © Twitter The no non-veg on Tuesday policy is so strong, some of us still follow it without second thoughts. Turning vegetarian every Tuesday seemed absurd, yet unknowingly consuming non-vegetarian food on the day would give us the most terrorising mini heart attacks. 4. Mangalvaar Aur Guruvaar Ko Baal Matt Kaatna © Instagram No haircut or shave on Tuesdays and Thursdays is another one that mothers ensured their kids followed with no questions asked. Of course, all of us have been tempted to break the rule and see what might happen. Some have even dared to go ahead with it, but the fear of the unknown in these situations is for real. 5. Number 13 Ka Prakop © Maxpixel Though most people say it is a western belief, this superstition finds a lot of takers in India too. From the fear of Friday the 13th to some people avoiding rooms and house numbers with the double-digit, 13 evokes a pretty creepy feeling when you think of it. Bad luck or not, everybody wants to stay away from it. 6. Itni Saari Hichki? Pakka Koi Yaad Kar Raha Hai © Vinod chopra films Even though it is mostly the ladies in our lives who say it, repeating it often almost makes us think that there is some truth to it. It is said that sudden hiccups mean someone is thinking of you and a series of them would quickly catch people's attention. However, when they repeated this a few times over, it made us really consider who might be thinking of us right that very moment. Our crush, hopefully? 7. Haath Mein Khujli, Paise Milenge! © T-Series This one is pretty common too. We have heard a lot of people say it and many people believe it too. An itchy left palm is said to be an indication of monetary profit, and well, who wouldn't love that? This one is something that many of us would gladly like to believe. 8. Raat Ko Peepal Ke Ped Ke Aas Paas Nahi Ghumna Chaiye © Clean Slate Films This one sounded so spooky when we were little. Yes, there were times when we really wanted to confirm those ghost stories, of Peepal trees being haunted by ghosts, but we wonder how many really did go in the dead of the night to confirm this. It seems funny now that the mighty tree could scare us once, right? Tell us, which ones did you believe in? Be honest.
  19. For Indians, September probably signifies the announcement of the new Apple phones and the start of a new season of 'Bigg Boss'. The 12th Season is all set to kick off in a few days and while fans are loving this year's batch of contestants and are waiting to watch Salman Khan in action, the aesthetic pleasure of having a home tour of the infamous 'Bigg Boss House' is another important factor for the viewers. © Colors Thanks to social media, a few images and videos of the 'beach' themed house have been leaked and by the looks of it, they look pretty awesome!

  20. The new iPhone Xs and Xs Max have dual SIM standby. In the normal world, this would mean that you have a SIM tray that can house two SIM cards. But this conventional method doesn't work in the Apple world. Sure, Apple will release a similar dual-SIM variant, but it will be restricted to China. In every other country, you'll need an eSIM to actually use the dual SIM support. What Is An eSIM? eSIM is an Embedded-Subscriber Identity Module, in simpler terms, the physical SIM card that we use daily is digitally embedded into the system, hence no physical card is necessary. With this technology, you omit the need for a physical card, and while this is definitely the future of telecommunication, it requires support from carriers. © Apple Currently, only Reliance Jio and Airtel support eSIM functionality in India. With this, it is easier for you to port to a new operator, as the system changes can be done digitally, and no new SIM needs to be activated. With the new iPhone Xs and Xs Max, you can easily insert one physical SIM card like you've always had, but to use the dual SIM capability, the second connection will have to plug via the eSIM. So, while Apple has, for the first time, given us a much-required feature, it does come with a lot of SIMs attached! © Apple Why Use An eSIM? An eSIM is even smaller than a nano-SIM card, hence it takes up lesser space. Also, with eSIMs, you don't have to worry about keeping a physical tray. Remember the days when batteries used to be swappable? Majority phones cannot be opened today, and in the same way, we should soon see an end to swapping SIM cards. © Apple An eSIM also helps in quickly porting carriers because they can be remotely activated. The adoption of this technology has been rather slow because hardly any company has pushed it to actual use. Apple Watch LTE uses this same technology, so does Google's Pixel 2 (the USA only). With the iPhones getting eSIM support, we expect more phone makers, as well as carriers, to adopt it. Once the technology gains wider acceptance, travelling internationally will also become easier. No need to keep a track of SIM cards, your new number will be directly sent to your iPhone and you are good to go. Neat right?
  21. It has finally been confirmed that the next OnePlus device will not sport a headphone jack, which has somewhat been a marketing tool for the company. OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei said in an interview with TechRadar, "When we started OnePlus, we set out to make the best possible smartphone, but making a great phone doesn't mean putting every component available into the device,” Pei continued to add “As per a survey conducted by OnePlus, around 59 per cent of the OnePlus users do not already own wireless headphones.” © YouTube Pei may not have mentioned the OnePlus 6T by name, however, it can be assumed that the next device will be the 6T. Pei explained that the removal of the headphone jack will free up more space and will allow them to fit in a larger battery. This, in turn, will result in improved battery life which has been one of the most asked features by users. In order to compensate for the removal of the headphone jack, Pei said "We're adding an adapter to the box, allowing you to use your 3.5mm headphones normally," he explained. "We're also making a new version of our Bullets V2 wired headphones, which will have a USB-C connector. © YouTube The removal of the headphone jack will certainly cause inconvenience to users, as the only port on the phone will be used for both chargings and listening to music. This can be particularly annoying if you're low on charge. Having said that, Samsung and LG remain the only two flagship device manufactures that include a headphone jack. We will know more about the OnePlus 6T closer to its launch and how the removal of the headphone jack will affect users. Source: TechRadar
  22. The new iPhones have become even more expensive: the so-called cheaper iPhone XR costs Rs 76,900 while the iPhone XS starts at Rs 99,900. The most expensive one being the iPhone XS Max 512GB that costs a whopping Rs 1,44,900. Interestingly, when we compare these prices to Samsung's latest and most advanced phone, the Note 9 costs Rs 84,900 for a 512GB variant. Now that we know the new iPhones are going to be extremely heavy on the pocket, there's a silver lining as well. Apple has officially slashed prices on the previous generation iPhones being sold in India, and this list includes last year's iPhone X as well as the age-old iPhone 6S. © MensXP Last year's iPhone X 64GB now starts at Rs 91,900, down from Rs 95,930, the 256GB variant costs Rs 1,06,900, down from 1,08,930. The iPhone X has received the least percentage of the price cut and continues to cost almost Rs 40,000 more than competing flagships. The iPhone 8 64GB variant is now available for Rs 59,900, after a price cut of Rs 8,040 and the 256GB variant of the device is available for Rs 74,900, after a price cut of Rs 6,600. The iPhone 8 Plus 64GB is now available for Rs 69,900 and the 256GB variant costs Rs 84,900, down by Rs 7,660 and Rs 6,210, respectively. © Flickr/Maurizio Pesce The iPhone 7 32GB variant has received a price cut of Rs 12,470 and is now available for Rs 39,900 while the 128GB variant is now available for Rs 49,900. The iPhone 7 Plus 32GB also costs Rs 39,900 and the 128GB is also marked at Rs 49,900. The iPhone 6S 32GB variant is available for Rs 29,900, down from Rs 42,900, while the 128GB variant is down to 39,900 from Rs 52,100. The 6S Plus on the other hand starts at Rs 34,900 and the 128GB variant costs Rs 44,900. © Apple When compared to the Android counterparts, these are still extremely expensive. But over a period of time, it has been made clear by the market demand as well as Apple, the products are in their own bubble. The company does not intend to compete with others based on pricing and wants the whole chunk of the premium market for itself. Read Also: Here's Everything You Need To Know About iPhone Xs and XR
  23. What if a 'khush khabri' makes you not so 'khush' but awkward? The trailer of Ayushmann Khurrana & Sanya Malhotra's 'Badhaai Ho' just dropped and it is the quirkiest thing we have watched in a very long time. The poster of the movie was shared earlier and it did raise our curiosity. Ayushmann Khurrana, Sanya Malhotra and Gajraj Rao can be seen curled up in a foetal position in the poster, and every character has a different expression. While Ayushmann and Gajraj look stressed, Sanya has a chilled out look. © Junglee Pictures © Junglee Pictures © Junglee Pictures The film has everything to do with a 'naya mehman' coming into the house. This slice-of-life comedy revolves around Neena Gupta's character (Ayushmann's mom) who ends up getting pregnant at an older age and this surprising twist takes them through a roller coaster ride. © YouTube Sanya Malhotra, who plays his love interest, is very chilled out about the issue and often delivers the quirkiest lines. Every scene takes you on a laughter riot. Surekha Sikri (of 'Balika Vadhu' fame) plays Ayushmann's grandmother and fits the bill right. It is amazing to see Neena Gupta on the big screen after a long time. This is the first time we see Ayushmann and Sanya together and one can't miss their chemistry. They will light up your screen with their crazy antics. Directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, the film also stars Surekha Sikri, Gajraj Rao and Sheeba Chaddha. The movie has a strong ensemble cast that makes this a hysterical ride and will hit the screens near you on October 19. Check out the trailer here:
  24. The Razer Phone has been off to an amazing start since its launch. The brand has always been known for its gaming rigs and accessories, and with the Razer Phone, the company has carved out a niche for itself. Following the Razer's approach to mobile gaming, many other companies like ASUS and Xiaomi have also started focusing on gaming phones. In a recent earnings report, Razer confirmed that the Razer Phone 2 was in production. The Razer Phone was launched last year, and a new successor is expected to be just around the corner. It's become very normal for us to see a plethora of leaks and reports before every launch, same is the case with Razer. While there hasn't been any information on the new design, we do know a few of the specifications that the phone would boast. © Razer According to AnTuTu, a benchmarking app, the phone has a 5.7 inch Sharp IGZO LCD screen with a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. The phone will also have a 120Hz refresh rate thanks to Qualcomm's Q Sync display technology. The phone will be powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset along with 8GB RAM and a humungous 512GB internal storage. The phone has also been spotted on another benchmarking app, Geekbench, that confirms the phone will be having a Snapdragon 845 chipset and 8GB RAM. The listing also revealed the phone will be running on Android 8.1 Oreo. One thing is sure, the phone will receive the Android 9 Pie update soon after its launch, or the company could surprise us by shipping it out of the box. © YouTube The phone is expected to have an 8-megapixel selfie camera and 12-megapixel dual rear shooters with dual-tone flash and wide-angle lens. There have been rumours floating around suggesting there could be a major design change and the company's Chroma LED lighting system will be incorporated. A few months back Min-Liang-Tan, the CEO of Razer had confirmed that the brand is working on bringing the phone to India. However, we haven't seen any progress there yet. The phone was earlier alleged to be launched at IFA Berlin, but that did not materialize, we expect it to launch in November though.
  25. The September 12 Apple event is just around the corner and the internet is filled with numerous leaks and reports. This time, Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones, one of them will be the 'iPhone XC'. This time, the company is trying to target three iPhones, each at a different price segment. SlashLeaks has shared images of the reported iPhone XC and it is expected to launch in Red, Blue, White, and Rose Gold. The blue colour will be making a comeback straight after 2103's iPhone 5C. The other two devices, the iPhone XS and XS Max are expected to launch in the usual three colours. © SlashLeaks Coming back to the iPhone XC, the device shall sport a 6.1-inch LCD display, a huge jump from the iPhone 8' 4.7-inch and iPhone 8 Plus' 5.5-inches. In the last few years, we've seen a majority of the Android devices sport a 5.0-inch or larger panel, and this has pretty much become a standard for flagships now. The most interesting thing about the iPhone XC though is the support for two SIM cards (or dual SIM as we generally call it). Adding to that, it is expected to support dual 4G support, meaning you can use two 4G connections simultaneously. This is a very basic functionality that has become pretty common in the Android world, finally, iPhone users too will have it. iPhone Xc (6.1” LCD) clones/dummy models in new colors. pic.twitter.com/RybRhE7XSO — Ben Geskin (@VenyaGeskin1) September 6, 2018 Analyst Ming-Ching Kuo, known for pretty accurate predictions regarding Apple devices, had even predicted that the bigger iPhone XS Max will come with dual-SIM support too. The phones will be made available in single-SIM and dual-SIM variants, depending on market and region. © SlashLeaks The iPhone XC is being termed the 'cheaper' iPhone variant right now, though, in the Apple ecosystem, cheap isn't really that cheap. To cut corners, the phone is expected to have an aluminium build, instead of steel. On the bright side, all the three models are expected to sport a notch along with Apple's Face ID authentication system. A quick recap of what we know so far, the trio is sure to run on Apple's latest A12 processor. The iPhone XC is alleged to have a 6.1-inch LCD panel, the iPhone XS is expected to have a 5.8-inch OLED panel, and lastly, the XS Max may have a 6.5-inch OLED panel. Source: Ben Geskin
