  3. Ever heard about clay masks or sheet masks? They’re a type of face mask for men that help in clarifying and hydrating the skin so that you can glow, even during the gloomy days of winter. Winter skincare is far from being easy. No matter how much moisturizer you apply, your skin always needs more hydration. This is why adding a men’s face pack to your skincare routine is a must and we’re here to help you pick the perfect one for your skin. Here are the best face packs for men to try in 2022. 1. Aloe Vera Sheet Mask For Detanning It’s a common myth that winter sun causes no skin damage, while the fact is that sun causes skin damage regardless of the season. In fact, we tend to spend more time in the sun during winters, hence your skin is more prone to damage during winters. __ECOMPRODUCT__1715__ If you too love basking in the winter sun, this sheet mask is a must in your kit. Not only does it help with cell regeneration and tan removal, but also in healing sun damaged skin so that your skin can go back to its natural complexion. 2. Red Clay Face Mask For Acne Prone Skin If your skin is acne prone, you know that winters rarely provide any relief. The excess oil and bacteria accumulation causes breakouts that not only take days to heal but also leave acne marks on your skin. __ECOMPRODUCT__681__ This red clay face mask is enriched with willow bark, neem extract, red clay and AHAs, that help in reducing as well as preventing acne. Say no to excess oil, blocked pores and acne with this face pack for men. 3. Green Tea Sheet Mask For Pollution Damage Unless you’re living in a less populated, secluded region, pollution is definitely affecting your health as well as your skin. It causes dullness and faster aging amongst many other serious skin conditions. __ECOMPRODUCT__1917__ This green tea sheet mask is made to help your skin heal from pollution damage and make it healthy from within. Enriched with all-natural extracts, it also hydrates and nourishes your skin. 4. Hydrating Yellow Clay Face Mask Dryness is one of the most common problems during winters. Be it someone with an oily skin or dry, winters have a similar effect on all skin types. __ECOMPRODUCT__683__ If this is the case with you too, hyaluronic acid is one of the best ingredients for your skin. In fact this face mask is also enriched with olive and cherry extract which soothe irritation, redness and deeply nourish your skin. 5. Detoxifying Black Clay Mask Last but not the least, we have a gentle yet effective formula for all those who have an oily skin type. This face mask is enriched with activated charcoal and black clay, which help in absorbing excess oil, reducing acne and detoxifying the skin from within. __ECOMPRODUCT__682__ If you need a men’s face pack to protect your skin from pollution damage, ageing as well as excess oil, this face mask for men is a must in your skincare kit. The Bottomline Face masks are a great way of giving your skin as well as your mind some much needed TLC. Sit back, relax and let your skin soak in all the goodness that these face masks have to offer. Trust us, you won’t regret it. Explore More View the full article

The news brought out nostalgia and excitement at the same time. On one hand, we instantly reminisced about the times spent with the pellet-munching, ghost evading, wacca-wacca-ing character (PAC MAN lovers reunite!) On the other hand, I was ecstatic about how leading tech giant OnePlus will make PAC-MAN a part of it’s latest Nord edition. Knowing OnePlus, we knew it wouldn’t be one of those pseudo collaborations with the PAC-MAN logo mopped on the packaging and...that’s it. Nope. That’s not OnePlus. View this post on Instagram A post shared by OnePlus India (@oneplus_india) The brand has really pulled out the big guns and made it a nostalgic, gamified smartphone experience that people will remember for years to come. Priced at Rs 37,999, the OnePlus Nord 2 x PAC-MAN Edition comes with a reimagined rear cover boasting a dual film design with phosphorescent ink applied to its innermost film that enables the device to glow in the dark. Yes, you read that right – the OnePlus Nord 2 x PAC-MAN Edition glows in the dark, showcasing a maze inspired by the classic game. In this special edition, the OxygenOS’s UI gets a gamified upgrade in the form of games, challenges, and tons of exclusive (and hidden) PAC-MAN content that the user can unlock while using the phone. How cool is that? The smartphone will be sold in a single variant with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. View this post on Instagram A post shared by OnePlus India (@oneplus_india) Okay, now for the most exciting part - you can get exciting offers on this edition just by playing PAC-MAN!

  5. Flashback to 2020 - OnePlus Nord became the world’s first smartphone to launch in AR, and it was one memorable affair. The brand enabled people to enjoy the launch from the comfort of their couch - a true experience in augmented reality. Fast forward to now, the Nord successor, OnePlus Nord 2 5G has become the talk of the tech town, for more than one reason. Here’s what makes it worth the hype: OnePlus Joins Hands With MediatekOnePlus Nord 2 5G is powered by the Mediatek Dimensity 1200-AI Chipset. This chipset packs numerous AI-based features that make this phone stand out. AI gives a major boost to the phone’s display in the form of AI Resolution Boost and AI Colour Boost. In simple words, a world-class display experience that is immersive, impressive, and illustrative. Is this the future? Or did we just use a really great camera? The Sony IMX766 sensor on the OnePlus Nord 2 5G’s primary camera lets in 56% more light for vivid night shots that look like they’re from another era of cool.#ShotonNord by Chi Chu pic.twitter.com/KvX1ft3Cj3 — OnePlus India (@OnePlus_IN) July 15, 2021 Next up, OnePlus Nord 2 5G will also have features like AI photo enhancement, AI video enhancement and Nightscape Ultra. So, whether you want to click pictures from a moving car, zoom into a far off scenery or click golden hour selfies - trust this phone’s camera to excel in every field. There are regular camera sensors, and then there’s the IMX766. It’s kinda like we put a giant vacuum on Nord 2’s main camera that sucks in 56% more light for improved colour, sharpness, and low-light shooting. Get Notified - https://t.co/gXhknbFnwe pic.twitter.com/qpM7kFfv89 — OnePlus India (@OnePlus_IN) July 14, 2021 The collaboration between OnePlus and Mediatek has enabled the phone to improve its photo processing speed and image stabilization capabilities. In a nutshell, the AI-based features make this phone a solid gadget for video gaming, photography, video editing and streaming high-definition content. Features That Are Creating BuzzOnePlus has confirmed that the phone will have a 6.42” fluid AMOLED screen, a refresh rate of 90Hz and a 50 MP AI triple camera. In fact, the main camera of this power-packed phone absorbs up to 56% more light for improved colour, sharpness, and low light shooting. Taking colourful, blur-free photos of people trotting around on the beach is challenging. Well, unless you’ve got a OnePlus Nord 2 5G with a light-gobbling 50 MP IMX766 primary camera with OIS. With Nord 2, you can say “neigh” to bad photos.#ShotonNord by Umurozcan pic.twitter.com/55aLJBPVfr — OnePlus India (@OnePlus_IN) July 14, 2021 What’s more? OnePlus Nord 2 5G comes with pre-installed OxygenOS 11 and is HDR 10+ certified.

  6. The Galaxy S20FE 5G is Samsung’s way to give competition to budget flagship players like OnePlus and Xiaomi. The phone is packed with features that you would want from a Samsung flagship smartphone but without the flagship price tag. The smartphone comes with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate display, 30X Space Zoom on its camera and 5G connectivity. The Galaxy S20 FE puts across a great alternative to the S21 Series by offering almost everything for a cheaper price. It has been a few weeks since I’ve been using the smartphone and here’s why I feel it’s a great smartphone to own in 2021: Design and Display © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Samsung has made a few sacrifices in order to make the S20 FE affordable and it comes in the form of a polycarbonate body. While it may sound like a cheap substitute, the S20 FE does not feel cheap in any way. In fact, the device feels solid in the hand and does not give off the vibe of a cheap budget device. To stand out from everything else out there, you also get to choose from six colour options i.e. Navy, Lavender, and Mint. Overall, the Galaxy S20 FE feels a bit more premium than its Chinese competition which one cannot ignore when looking for a value flagship smartphone. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy S20 FE also has a different display primarily because of its thicker bezels. The display may not be offering a full-screen experience as the mainline S20 Series, but it doesn’t hamper the experience in any way. Samsung does compensate in other ways by having a smaller front-camera cutout than the Galaxy S20. Samsung also offers additional design features that give it an advantage over the competition. The smartphone is IP68 rated for water and dust resistance which not many value flagships offer. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla In the display department, the Galaxy S20 FE features a 120Hz fullHD+ AMOLED display with 2400 x 1800 pixels. Having a 120Hz refresh rate is a welcome addition to the FE series as it results in smoother browsing, scrolling and better frames in games. Using apps like Twitter, Flipboard and even our own website feel ultra-smooth. The AMOLED display has a size of 6.5 inches, making it perfect for OTT video consumption. The display is rather vivid considering the price of the smartphone where colours pop in a series like ‘The Last Kingdom’ on Netflix. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The S20 FE’s display is also quite bright where it reached a peak level of 675 nits with adaptive brightness turned on. The S20FE’s colour calibration is also on-point where it fared better than other flagship devices that launched in 2021. The smartphone registered 132.4 % of the DCI-P3 colour space which is higher than most smartphone’s display in the same price category. Cameras © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy S20 FE comes with a triple camera setup at the back which is one of the most versatile setups you can get. It comes with a 12 MP, f/1.8 main camera, 8 MP, f/2.4 telephoto sensor and a 12 MP, f/2.2 ultra-wide camera. The ultra-wide camera is particularly fun to use thanks to tis 123-degree filed of view and better clarity than the rest of the devices I’ve used this year. The Space Zoom feature also works as well if not better than the main S20 Series. I was able to zoom into objects and take clear images of subjects that simply isn’t possible on other devices. The S20 FE also takes remarkable portrait images in daylight with an accurate bokeh effect along the edges of subjects. Portrait images don’t lose details and do a good job at getting the lighting right. However, I do wish that some of the images did not have the typical over-saturation levels that Samsung smartphones are known to have. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The main camera on the S20 FE also performs well with sharp results and enough details for it to be social media worthy. Some images look absolutely brilliant with popping colours however there were instances of the camera capturing slightly saturated images as well. High saturation images are most common when capturing pictures in high daylight scenarios. Low-light imaging is also quite reliable even with night mode turned off. We didn’t notice great noise levels from the main camera however the same cannot be said about the ultra-wide sensor. The night mode works very similarly to the S20 series but it isn’t as consistent as other night mode images I’ve captured with other devices. If you want to have a look at some of the camera samples from the Galaxy S20 FE 5G, have a look here: Performance and Battery The Galaxy S20 FE 5G is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chipset and has been paired with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM. In my experience, the S20 FE 5G felt snappier and faster than other smartphones by Samsung that are powered by the Exynos platform. I threw everything at the phone and there was no sight of it being slowed down or throttling. The phone was able to run Genshin Impact and Call of Duty Mobile on maximum settings without dropping any frames or getting hot by the extra pressure on the GPU. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla In terms of benchmark tests, the S20 FE 5G performed as expected with impressive scores. On Geekbench 5, the S20 FE 5G scored 2,928 (multi-core). The scores were reflective of real-world usage. For gamers, the smartphone reached 1,325 frames (21 frames per second) on GFXBench’s Aztec Ruins Vulkan test. The smartphone beats the Galaxy S20 by a slight margin but still trails the iPhone 11’s GPU performance. The Galaxy S20FE 5G is equipped with a 4,500 mAh battery that can last an entire day with moderate to heavy use. The phone comes with a 15W charger out of the box but doed support PD fast charging at 25W as well which you will have to purchase separately. The Final Say The Galaxy S20FE 5G retails in India for Rs 47,999 which is a great deal considering what you get in return. The smartphone’s photography capabilities are better than its competition. With a great 120Hz display and striking colours to choose from, the Galaxy S20 FE sets itself apart from the deep abyss of smartphones in this price category. View the full article

  9. Most of us say that we can’t ever get enough of our favorite food but imagine not one or two but 42 packages of your favorite food getting delivered at your doorstep! That’s exactly what happened with a little girl when she tried to order a packet of chicken cutlets, rice, and French fries for herself and her grandmother. The delivery app she ordered from malfunctioned and due to technical glitches, the 7-year-old ended up ordering the same order 42 times. The parents of the little kid were away for work and they left her with a smartphone to order food for both of them. But, the delivery debacle happened due to an honest mistake by the little one. The whole incident was recorded and was posted by a neighbor on a Facebook post who said the child looked upset and was on the verge of crying when she realized the glitch and has caused the mistake. Check out the post here- This happened due to poor internet connection and the little girl ended up tapping on the app’s order button many times and as the app was malfunctioning, the order was placed 42 times. The girl didn’t realize but the delivery person ended up dropping the packets one by one. The whole order ended up summing to a huge amount of Rs 13,000 and left the girl feeling helpless. However, all the neighbors came together to buy the excess orders by the delivery persons and made sure they did not return home without money for the packets. Also, they made sure they did not have to pay for so many food packets all alone. View the full article
  10. We finally got to test the HomePod Mini, Apple’s new smart speaker that is way smaller than its bigger brother and is a direct competitor to Google’s Nest Audio and Amazon Echo. The HomePod Mini is Apple’s answer to the small smart speaker market which is everything an iPhone user needs in 2020. It’s more affordable and can do everything the larger HomePod can do. If you are an iPhone user who is heavily invested in Apple’s ecosystem, you will absolutely adore this smart speaker. It works with the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod and every other recent Apple product launched in the past few years. Here’s what we think about Apple’s HomePod Mini: Design We’ve already mentioned the HomePod Mini is small but what sets it apart from everything else out there is its half-spherical design. The entire speaker is wrapped in a fabric mesh similar to the larger HomePod and has a touch control pad with LED indicators at the top. Apple has retained the original design of the HomePod albeit with slight changes to the overall design. The fabric mesh is supposed to make the sound better on the HomePod Mini which has proven to be effective in the larger model. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The HomePod Mini does need to be plugged in at all times and is not a portable device you can carry around the house. The smart speaker also does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack if you want to play music from other devices and heavily relies on Apple Music and other streaming services. The small size also means it can be easily installed in a bookshelf, desk or the kitchen counter if you are looking for something more discrete. Apart from the subtle changes, the HomePod Mini follows a similar design ethos as the larger HomePod and fits the Apple aesthetic perfectly. Features While the HomePod Mini might feel like a cheaper, smaller device, it doesn’t mean the smart speaker does not have all the features. The HomePod Mini does everything the larger HomePod can do powered by Siri. You can control smart devices that are compatible with Apple’s HomeKit and even use it for streaming content from Apple Music, TuneIn, Podcasts amongst others. Alternatively, you can also use the Handoff feature from your iPhone by simply tapping on the speaker with your phone and it will transfer whatever was playing. You will get a notification on your iPhone and feel haptic feedback whenever you are transferring audio to the HomePod Mini. Having said that, in order for this feature to work, both devices need to be on the same WiFi network. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Apple has also introduced a new intercom feature that allows users to broadcast voice messages to other Apple devices at your home. You simply need to say “Hey Siri, Intercom…” followed by your message. You can turn off this feature from the Home app settings or select when to receive notifications. I’ve personally set it on “When I’m Home” as I don’t expect to step out anytime in the near future. You can send voice notes via Intercom to iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches, AirPods to family members which you have to choose in the Home app. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla If you are looking to get two HomePod Minis, you can also pair them up in stereo for a better audio experience. This was possible on the larger HomePod as well which is great for users who would like to pair it with their Apple TV. You can place it in a manner that you get the best audio acoustics from the smart speaker. The speaker is also powered by Apple’s U1 Wideband chip which does help in tuning the audio according to the environment and detect iPhones for the handoff feature. Sound Quality © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla I’ll be honest, I did not expect the HomePod Mini to pack a punch when it comes to audio quality due to its sheer size. The speaker is loud enough to fill up a medium-sized room and keeps the sound balanced for all types of genres. The HomePod Mini is clearer than most other speakers we’ve used that come in a similar size and sound less distorted. The mids and highs are balanced perfectly and can be distinctly heard at medium to low volumes. Having said that, the lows or bass still needs a bit of tuning even though it still sounds better than the competition. You do get enough bass without having the overall sound getting distorted which is always a good sign with small speakers. However, if you are looking for a more powerful bass sound, we recommend getting the regular HomePod for your needs. If you listen to a lot of podcasts, the HomePod Mini is the perfect smart speaker for listening to spoken word content. The Final SayIf you are an iPhone user looking for a smart speaker that works seamless with your phone, the HomePod Mini is a great option to consider. It doesn’t take too much space and sounds great for its size. The smart speaker can handle all of your queries via Siri and is perfect for controlling HomeKit devices such as cameras, smart lights and other devices. There’s finally an affordable option for iPhone users who want to make full use of their HomeKit and Apple’s ecosystem. View the full article
  11. OnePlus recently launched the new OnePlus Nord, an affordable smartphone with killer specs. But now it looks like it's working on a new phone and this time we're looking at an entry-level phone. Yes, OnePlus seems to be working on an entry-level phone. According to a new report, OnePlus is said to be working on a phone that's powered by Snapdragon 460 chipset. This news is coming from an insider who confirmed that the launch is imminent. The phone will apparently be available in the global markets, so we can expect it to arrive here too. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla This new phone is codenamed 'Clover' and it looks like it has a 6.52-inch 720p IPS panel, 4GB RAM, and 64GB internal storage. We also have info on things like the availability of a microSD card slot, capacitive fingerprint scanner, and more. As for the optics, we're looking at a triple camera setup at the back but the standout feature seems to the 6,000mAh battery. That with a 720p display and we're probably looking a battery life champ here. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla If the rumors are something to go by, then this phone will come later this year and it'll be priced at around $200. This looks like an interesting price point to tap into. OnePlus has never launched a phone at this price point, so we'll have to see how it works out for them. We still have no official confirmation on the arrival of this phone, so let's not speculate further and just wait. Source: Android Central View the full article
  12. The coronavirus lockdown across the globe has brought a looming doom on humans at the moment. As we continue to stay in quarantine, the world is divided in several categories of lifestyle. On one hand we have the privileged lot which is trying hard to make it look like one long vacation, and on the other hand are people who cannot afford a single meal. Talking about first world problems in this pandemic, Indians are dying for âthekasâ to open so they can fill up their booze stock at home and continue having a quarantined life in peace. However, as per new guidelines, sale of liquor and cigarettes is banned, and maybe rightly so. The governor of Nairobi in Kenya has been the target of some flak after the COVID-19 care packages that are being given by the government include alcohol as well. âWe will have some small bottles of Hennessy in the food packs that we will be giving to our peopleâ¦â - Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko Note: WHO warns that drinking alcohol does not protect you against COVID-19 and can be dangerous pic.twitter.com/vuSuVAb8dy â Citizen TV Kenya (@citizentvkenya) April 14, 2020 When the governor was questioned, he agreed to the claim and actually had an explanation for the same. He explained that alcohol is in fact a âthroat sanitiserâ although according to WHO, alcohol doesnât protect you from COVID-19 nor is consumption recommended. The video went viral on social media and people had many opinions around this move. Creative politician award to Mike Sonko governor of #Nairobi, #Kenya He distributed #COVID19 care packages included food, other needs & cognac, #Hennessy. Sonko suggested the #WHO suggested alcohol helps kill #Coronavirus, the Hennessy would serve as a âThroat Sanitizer.â ... â Delrish Moss (@Delrish_M) April 18, 2020 People actually want to vote for him and wish every government was this cool. Everyone is hating on the governor of #Kenya for giving out bottles of Henny in Rona relief packages but come on, I want my government to be this cool...@MikeSonko hook it up!!!! â Bill Tracy (@BillTracyIV) April 17, 2020Not sure about his choice of outfit here, but he had me at HENNESSY! pic.twitter.com/XRKvdyU6zz â Shawnasaurus Rex (@ShawnG927) April 18, 2020 Jokes apart, some people didnât find it cool and called him out for this health hazard. There is alot of ignorance as regards preventing COVID19 in Africa, just heard a governor in Nairobi Kenya shared cognac to his people claiming it kills coronavirus, some Men for Naija go like that kind Governor ooooo â Owen Gee (@OfficialOwenGee) April 17, 2020His hand sanitizers are pretty cool actually with all that customisation included. I wonder if it has a personalised not as well? © Twitter/ _Kimenyi All things said and done, hope you are staying indoors and adhering to the government rules. source: CNN View the full article

  14. Thor: Ragnarok raised the bar for MCU films, no questions about it. Often making it to the top three in several ranked lists featuring all 22 films, Taika Waititiâs take on the superhero genre was witty, hilarious, engaging and at the same time, deeply emotional and heartfelt. Back in 2017, we saw a Thor who was at his lowest - ripped apart by his sister Hela, forced to fight without Mjolnir by his side, take on an old friend in The Hulk and prove to himself that he was capable of defending his people - while simultaneously getting a haircut. Three years later, Thor: Love And Thunder promises perhaps one of the most serious and crucial plot points in the post-Endgame era for MCU fans - how the ownership of Mjolnir and title of Thor moves on from Odinson to (at least in the comics) to Jane Foster, played by Natalie Portman. With co-star Tessa Thompson revealing acting legend Christian Bale to be Fosterâs first major villain in the MCU, speculations are running high as to which character he will play. While the theorists are busy typing away, weâre taking a look at some of Baleâs best efforts in darker roles - chalking up why we think heâd do a superb job in the film, regardless of who heâs cast as. The Dark Knight Trilogy Straight up - these three films redefined not just Christian Baleâs career, they also changed the game when it came to superhero films in several different ways. Whatâs interesting, however, is that after 2012âs The Dark Knight Rises, Bale has admitted in interviews that he was extremely disinterested in working on superhero films with anyone other than director Christopher Nolan, even mentioning that a personal tragedy that occurred during the filming also left him unable to watch them again himself. Yet, heâs found himself as the main antagonist in Love And Thunder - so what gives? While we think a healthy contract might have had something to do about it, getting Bale on board likely has something to do with Taika Waititiâs excellent script and direction chops that could bridge the gap between Baleâs previous skepticism and his own experience as Batman. Heâs proved that he can handle the gravitas and psychological pressure required to pull the role off for three films - the action and stunt experiences from them will probably help Bale immensely when it comes to Love and Thunder, while the drama and dialogue might help him pull off a serious, no-bullshit villain. American Psycho Winding back the clock by a few years, we hit Baleâs first truly negative major role and one of cinemaâs best-ever performances as the detached, eerie yuppie persona of Patrick Bateman - a soulless investment banker by day who finds meaning in life through torture and murder by night. Needless to say, Bale is absolutely terrifying in this film - his manicured, ultra-perfect character breaks through to reveal horrifying bloodlust underneath, and thereâs fewer ways to make a villain memorable than to make him utterly terrifying. With the film putting the idea of Thor on a fresh, clean slate, thereâs a wealth of experience from this film that Bale can channel into his next role. The Prestige The first Bale film after Batman Begins happens to be yet another Nolan-helmed project - looks like those two really got along in the mid-late 2000s. The Prestige brings us a version of Bale thatâs deceitful, cunning and harbours a dark secret - a magician ready to oust his rival no matter the cost. Thereâs plenty of proof here that Bale can play the detached psychopath as well as the mysterious schemer. Apparently, Nolan has stated that it would be âunthinkableâ to cast anyone else, and it certainly shows. The Fighter A 2010 biographical sports drama isnât exactly where youâd expect to find a convincing villain, but given that itâs Bale, we may as well raise our expectations. Performing the same (yet not so extreme) weight loss regime he previously did for 2004âs The Machinist, Baleâs role takes him into the shoes of a boxer past his prime, hopped on cocaine while committing crimes to get his fix. While the star of the show here was undoubtedly Mark Wahlberg, Baleâs performance was top-notch in a role that swings from hopeful and optimistic to selfish and opportunistic with masterful skill. Weâre fairly certain that Marvel will continue with their one-off villain strategy here, similar to Cate Blanchettâs Hela and Michael Keatonâs Vulture - so a story arc that draws Bale from being Thorâs ally to her enemy might feature in the upcoming film. Terminator Salvation Finally, thereâs the elephant in the room - all MCU films are, at their core, action-dramas with healthy doses of CGI mixed in, and Bale hasnât exactly done a film like that⦠or has he? Terminator Salvation came out with a whole lottaâ weight riding on its shoulders - it was the first ever Terminator movie without Arnold Schwarzenegger in it, and had a lot to prove to the industry as well as fans. While the film did all-right by box office and critical standards, Baleâs performance and screen presence were praised, and meanwhile, the actor was given an important chance to work in studios filled with greenscreens - a great primer for what heâll expect at Fox Studios for the Thor film.

  15. Vivo has launched a lot of great phones this year including the Z1 Pro and the Z1x. Now, the company is looking to finish the year strong with the new Vivo V17, a new phone in its camera-centric V-series of devices. Besides the camera, the new Vivo V17 packs a lot of other great features. It's got great internals, a really good display, huge battery with fast charging and a whole lot more. We think it's a really good phone and here's everything that you need to know about it. Brilliance is here! Hold your breath as we reveal all the features of the #ClearAsReal #vivoV17. pic.twitter.com/XF0Yl6GHnG — Vivo India (@Vivo_India) December 9, 2019 Vivo V17 The Vivo V17 sports a 6.2-inch display on the front with the world's smallest punch hole for the camera. It looks very small, so we think it won't really bother while using the phone. The phone also has a really good build quality. The glass body makes it look super premium and I think it looks awesome in both the colour variants. Internally, the phone is powered by the Snapdragon 675 processor and comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. It packs a massive 4,500 mAh battery which supports fast charging. And just like every other Vivo phone, this one also runs on FunTouchOS. As for the optics, the phone packs some really good cameras. There are four cameras at the back, out of which one is a 48MP sensor. The other lenses can be used to take super wide angle shots, super macro photos or portrait images. There's also a 32MP selfie shooter on the front, which is said to take some really crisp selfies. The camera software, of course, comes with a lot of great features like Night mode, Portrait Lighting effects and more. Vivo also talked a lot about the video recording capabilities of the phone, so we're excited to check out that out too. Pricing and Availability Vivo has launched the V17 in India at the price of Rs 22,990, which, if you ask me, is great for everything that it brings to the table. We haven't had the chance to check out the phone and use it extensively just yet, but we think it'll be a solid option for those who are looking to buy a phone under Rs 25,000. It goes on sale starting December 17. View the full article
  16. Huawei has already launched the Y9 in India and is preparing to get the View 20 soon as well. On the other hand, its sub-brand, Honor, too is gearing up for the upcoming year. The phone was launched in China a couple of months back and it has proven itself in terms of sales globally. The budget smartphone segment has been getting extremely cramped due to a wide range of offerings from various makers. Hence, brands are trying their best to offer more features, at the lowest possible price. For Honor, the gradient design has been loved by many and has become one major differentiating factor for consumers. © Twitter / @Sandeep9sarma The Honor 10 Lite touts an attractive design with a glass-like 3D rear panel that sees dual cameras and a fingerprint sensor on the rear. The front has a small semi-circular notch along with a heavy front camera. The phone has a 6.2-inch Full HD+ LCD display with a resolution of 2280 x 1080 pixels. Thanks to the notch, it has a screen-to-body ratio of 90 percent and an aspect ratio of 19:9. Under the hood, the device is powered by a Kirin 710 chipset that claims to offers a significant improvement in power efficiency and performance as compared to the previous generation chipset. © Honor It comes with the option of 4GB or 6GB RAM along with 64GB internal storage. Both the options support expandable storage via a microSD card slot up to 512GB. The fingerprint scanner is located on the back and it also has Face Unlock authentication. On the rear is a 13-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor. The front has a 24-megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture. The standard Honor UI equips you with HDR, beauty mode, as well as automatic enhancements via AI. © Honor On the software front, the Honor 10 Lite boots Android Pie-based EMUI 9.0 out of the box and is powered by a 3,320mAh battery. The phone will be exclusively available via Flipkart. The 4GB+64GB option is priced at Rs 13,999 and the 6GB+64GB variant is priced at Rs 17,999. The Honor 10 Lite will be up for grabs in Midnight Black and Gradient Blue.
  17. This trippy stoner comedy brings us four hijackers who can't decide why they have hijacked the flight in the first place. You have DJ Rakesh (Sumeet Vyas), who is carrying candies, which in reality ain't candies. You also have an uncle who loves cracking jokes that makes you laugh. 'High Jack' dropped its first trailer and by the looks of it, we got to agree it looks like one helluva ride. The movie is being promoted in India as the first 'stoner-comedy' and is packed with humorous one-liners. (c) Phantom Movies Sumeet, who entertained us with his web-series 'Permanent Roommates', is killing it with his performance in this trailer. While hijacking is a serious issue, here the people who have hijacked the flight are actually the employees of an airline and are doing it with an intention to punish their employer. And what makes this a stoner comedy? The fact that every passenger on the plane is high. While this is not an ideal situation in a crisis like this, but it's totally worth it for the audience. (c) Phantom Movies Another highlight of the movie is Nucleya's background score that adds the perfect fun vibe to it. Directed by Akarsh Khurana, the movie also stars Mantra, Sonnalli Seygall, Kumud Mishra, Sarthak Kakar, Muzamil Qureshi, Radhika Bangia, Priyanshu Painyuli, AnishJohn and Aadhar Khurana. 'High Jack' turns hijacking into one big party which looks pretty interesting. The film is slated to release on April 20, 2018.

At a time when Govinda was ruling the roost with his comic timing, Salman owned the scene with his frivolous act. © Twitter If reminiscence of the 90s is your thing and you still listen to the ‘building' song then hold your heart.
