  1. Companies are now innovating or re-inventing the design of smartphones to pave way for the future. Weâve seen brands make full-display smartphones to devices that fold. However, Xiaomi made a smartphone straight out of a science fiction movie that is wrapped with a display from all sides. The smartphone was first shown off last year and we got to see the smartphone for ourselves this week. © MENSXP/Akshay Bhalla While it may look like a concept device, the smartphone is actually going on sale in China soon and if converted to Indian Rupees, it can cost up to Rs 2.5 lakh. It uses flexible OLED panels just like folding phones, but instead of being a foldable device, it has screens all around it. At first glance, you might think the Mi Mix Alpha is some high-tech device from the movie Minority Report but it actually works as advertised. The #MiMixAlpha is action. Resisted really hard to not pick it up and play around with it. pic.twitter.com/vTpLaZzjEh â Akshay Bhalla (@Bhallanator) January 16, 2020 Xiaomi has termed this technology as âSurround Displayâ and it has a 189.6% screen-to-body ratio. It has almost no bezels at both the top and bottom of the device and has a vertical stripe at the back that houses the primary camera and all the necessary sensors and antennas. Notably, the smartphone does not have a selfie camera as one can simply flip the phone and use the primary camera for taking selfies. The second screen at the back is used as the viewfinder for selfies and will automatically launch once you flip the smartphone. © MENSXP/Akshay Bhalla When it comes to availability, only around 500 of them exist as of now which is why it also comes with a hefty price tag. Xiaomi is currently evaluating whether the smartphone should be available for Indian customers but we will only know for sure in some time. When it comes to the durability of the smartphone, Xiaomi says it has used a titanium alloy frame for the chassis while the strip at the back has been made with ceramic. Naturally, being an all-screen display, one has to be careful while using it, but Xiaomi has provided a special case for the smartphone to protect it from fall damage. Since the smartphone is all screen, there are no speakers or physical buttons to adjust the settings of the phone. Instead, Xiaomi uses capacitive buttons on the stem of the smartphone to control functions such as increasing/decreasing volume, control other features such as WiFi and other shortcuts that you may want to use on the fly. Since there are no speakers, Xiaomi has embedded an earpiece into the display that also functions as a proximity sensor. In fact, this technology was developed by Sony and the Japanese company calls it âAcoustic Surfaceâ. It is the same technology Sony is currently using for some of their high-end televisions. © Xiaomi When it comes to the specifications, the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha comes with a Snapdragon 855+ chipset, 12GB RAM, 512GB of internal storage (UFS 3.0) and a 108MP primary camera. The smartphone also Haas 5G connectivity capabilities and supports power delivery fast charging. Interestingly, when charging the smartphone, the Mi Mix Alpha has a unique animation that converts the entire display to a battery status indicator. It starts with a red-orange hue when it has low charge and goes all the way up to bright green when it reaches full charge. The Mi Mix Alpha is definitely not a smartphone that everyone can afford and is reserved for the affluent. Which is why Xiaomi is considering whether it makes sense to sell the smartphone in India. However, if the brand eventually brings the smartphone to India, expect it to come in very limited quantities and with a hefty price tag. Nonetheless, a beautiful smartphone that is also one out of five hundred is probably worth more than the monetary value to some people. View the full article
  2. All the Samsung fanboys out there are probably waiting for the big announcement to see the next phone in the highly anticipated Galaxy S series. The company has been updating this line up for 10 years now, so let's just say it's something that we all are looking forward to. But it looks like Samsung has some different plans this year. The company appears to be re-branding the series and the new name is said to be Galaxy S20. The same has been confirmed through a series of leaked images showing the phone. The images were obtained by the folks over at XDA Developers. Here, take a look at it yourself - S20+ 5G looks absolutely insane pic.twitter.com/0vppZ65wys — Max Weinbach (@MaxWinebach) January 12, 2020 As you can see, the phone's startup screen confirms the name. Why did they change the name? Well, nobody knows that for now. Perhaps they are naming by year now? Anyway, we can also see a punch hole on the front for the selfie camera, which is similar to the Galaxy Note 10. The phone seen in the image is a Galaxy S20+ 5G, so it's the larger variant. If XDA's source is something to go by, then it looks like we'll be getting more than a few variants this year. Samsung Galaxy S20 Samsung Galaxy S20 5G Samsung Galaxy S20+ Samsung Galaxy S20+ 5G Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G — Max Weinbach (@MaxWinebach) January 12, 2020 On the back, we can see the large camera array that's rumored to include a regular wide angle lens, an ultra-wide angle lens, portrait, and even a macro lens. It's funny how the sticker at the back specifically says "Do Not Leak Info". For those of you who are interested, Samsung will be unveiling all the phone at its Unpacked event on February 11. We'll definitely be bringing you all the updates from the event, so stay tuned. Source: XDA Developers View the full article
  3. The Realme 5 Series turned out to be a huge success in India. The company ended up selling a ton of Realme 5 and Realme 5 Pro devices, and now, they're bringing a new phone in the series today. Called the Realme 5i, it's replacing the Realme 5 and it's more like an upgrade to it. The highlight of the phone is the quad-camera setup and the 5,000 mAh battery. Let's check it out - The Realme 5i, as you can see, has a different design at the back. It doesn't have the crystal design anymore and instead, has a textured back. The Realme 5i sports a 6.52-inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1600. It also has a waterdrop notch on the front that houses an 8MP selfie camera. It's powered by the Snapdragon 665 SoC, just like the Realme 5. © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP It comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage, which is a standard thing for budget phones. In terms of the optics, the Realme 5i sports a quad-camera setup which includes a 12MP primary sensor, an 8MP sensor with a wide-angle lens, a 2MP portrait lens, and a 2MP macro lens. There's a 5,000 mAh battery inside that's keeping the light on and it's running on ColorOS software based on Android. Pricing And Availability © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP Realme has launched the new Realme 5i at Rs 8,999 in India. The phone will be available in two colour variants i.e. Green and Blue and it'll be available exclusively through Flipkart starting January 15, 2020. View the full article
  4. Samsung usually launches a new Galaxy flagship every year in February and we are only months away from the official release of the next Galaxy S series smartphone. Most people would assume that the next smartphone would be called “Galaxy S11”, however it seems like Samsung is going to ditch the annual nomenclature and instead call it the Galaxy S20. © MensXP/Akshay-Bhalla This information comes from renowned Samsung leaker Ice Universe on Twitter who tweeted "Galaxy S20, Next year is 2020, and 20 is a new beginning." Ice Universe has been accurate with leaks in the past and this new naming scheme could turn out to be true given the reasons behind it. It seems like the start of the new decade would also mark the inception of the Galaxy S20. Next year is 2020, and 20 is a new beginning. — Ice universe (@UniverseIce) December 24, 2019 Smartphone companies tend to jump numbers when naming their smartphones as Apple never released an iPhone 9 and instead jumped straight to the iPhone X. Similarly, Samsung also never released the Galaxy Note 6 and jumped to Galaxy Note 7 even though it didn't work according to the plan in the end. © MensXP/Akshay-Bhalla Having said that, skipping to Galaxy S20 might be confusing to many consumers if the messaging is not on point by Samsung. Regardless of what it is called, the Galaxy S11 or S20 will be packed with powerful specifications if the rumours are to be believed. It is rumoured to come with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 processor and 5G capabilities. In terms of cameras, the next flagship is expected to come with 108MP primary sensor and other cameras for different modes. Sooner or later, these specifications will be confirmed when the smartphone launches in February. It remains to be seen whether Samsung will call it the Galaxy S11 or Galaxy S20.

  5. 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
  6. A few weeks ago when I reviewed Xiaomi's Redmi Note 8, I said it was the best phone to buy under Rs 10,000 in India and nothing comes close. Well, the Redmi Note 8 is still a kickass phone, but it's no longer the only phone we recommend in this price range. Yes, Realme has updated the Realme 5 with new optics and called it Realme 5s. But it's not exactly a bad thing because the Realme 5 itself was a really good phone and it only needed the optics to go head-to-head with Xiaomi's new budget king. So, is the Realme 5s a good phone to buy? Well, let's find out. 1. Design & Build Quality © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP Realme has been making some really good looking phones and the new Realme 5s is no exception. I absolutely loved the design of the Realme 5 when it came out, so I am glad that they decided to stick to the same design. The Realme 5s looks exactly the same. I mean, if it wasn't for the new 48MP moniker on the camera sensor or the new Crystal Red colour, you won't be able to tell the difference between the two. Since we're looking at the same design, we must point out that it's a little unwieldy. I mean, it's a tall phone with a massive display on the front and a huge battery inside. So it's not a easy phone to hold and use, at least not with one hand. But if that's not an issue, then you'll love it. Realme has done a great job when it comes to the build quality. © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP The Realme 5s has the classic Realme diamond pattern at the back. There's also a fingerprint scanner at the back, which is just as fast and reliable as any other physical scanner. It can be a little hard to reach if you have small hands. And since Realme hasn't changed anything else apart from the camera, we're looking at the same micro USB port at the bottom. It's a bummer, considering the fact that other competing phones are now offering a USB Type C port. 2. Display The Realme 5s sports a 6.5-inch LCD display with a waterdrop notch. It's a tall display, but it's only an HD+ panel, which means, it's not going to be as sharp as the displays on some other phones in the same price range. Also, the LCD isn't as bright and colourful as you'd expect, so I'd say the display is one of the weak points of the phone. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad display by any means. But we wish it was at least an FHD+ panel. © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP Apart from that though, I don't have any other complaints with the display. The bezels are slim, viewing angles are good and even the sunlight visibility is pretty good. It's a perfectly serviceable display for a phone that costs under Rs. 10,000. 3. Performance The Realme 5s has the same specifications as the Realme 5, which means it shares the same specs as the Redmi Note 8 too. It packs a Snapdragon 665 SoC chipset and 4GB RAM, which is a good combo for keeping things quite smooth on a budget phone. During my testing, the phone managed to push through all the day-to-day tasks such as web browsing, social media apps and more. © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP However, gaming is not exactly a strong suit of Snapdragon 665 SoC, so you may notice lags and jitters occasionally while playing games like PUBG Mobile and Asphalt 9. But that's the case with most budget phones, so you might want to consider spending a little more if you want a phone to play games. I must point out that Realme's ColorOS based on Android Pie is pretty good. It has gotten a lot better over time and is now one of my favorite Android skins. Yes, it still comes with a ton of bloatware, but you can remove most of them. I just like how smooth the UI is. Software makes a whole lot of difference and I am happy to report that you won't have any issues with the Realme 5s when it comes smooth day-to-day performance. 4. Camera © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP Yes, the cameras! Like I said, the only reason why this phone exists is the camera. The Realme 5s sports a quad-camera setup which includes a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultrawide camera, a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The rest of the sensors are the same as what we saw on the Realme 5, so essentially the 48MP is the highlight here. So, how's the camera performance? Well, the 48MP sensor offers a lot of details in daylight photos with ample light. There's a ton of details on the images captured in the 48MP mode and the brightness is also on point. There's also a dedicated night mode on the Realme 5s and it can take some really good shots. Even the images captured using the other modes are really good, so I'd say this is a really versatile camera. Here are some samples - 5. Battery Life The Realme 5s packs a massive 5,000 mAh battery, which is what makes this phone a little bulky. If you're looking for a phone with good battery life, then look no further. The Realme 5s can last you a very long time on a single charge, even if you're a heavy hitter. I usually go hard on phones while testing them and hence they give up very easily. © Karthik Iyer/ MensXP But with Realme 5s, I was ending my days with up to 40-percent charge, even on the day when I am using it extensively for watching media, taking pictures, etc. It's that good. But it only comes with a 10W charger, which means it'll take a lot of time to get fully charged. You'll be looking at around 2 hours to get this phone from 0 to 100-percent. 6. The Final Say So, is the Realme 5s worth the asking price of Rs. 9,999? Well, yes. At that price, you're getting a really good phone with a great internals, a massive 5,000 mAh battery and a really versatile camera setup. These are the only thing that matters to budget phone buyers and I think Realme has done a good job. Yes, I would've loved to see an FHD+ panel and USB Type C port, but it looks like, we can't have it all. So, I'll wrap up my review by saying that Redmi Note 8 is not the only phone that's worth checking out under Rs. 10,000. The Realme 5s is also here now and it has a lot going for it. Be sure to check out our detailed comparison between the Redmi Note 8 and the Realme 5s to learn more about them. View the full article
  7. After the successful launch of the Redmi Note 8 series, Xiaomi is now gearing up to launch a new smartphone in the country. It Looks like the company is looking to finish the year strong with yet another kickass phone, which is why it's bringing a phone with a 108MP camera. Yes, a 108MP smartphone camera. The company recently launched the Mi Note 10 (CC9 Pro) in China along with the Mi Watch, and we think this new phone that's coming to India is the Mi Note 10. We don't have an official confirmation, but we're quite positive that it's the Mi Note 10 since it's the only Xiaomi phone with a 108MP sensor. © MI The company posted a tweet saying "It's Coming #108" with a bunch of camera emojis. The same tweet was also posted by Xiaomi India's head Manu Kumar Jain and a bunch of Xiaomi employees in India. They're definitely looking to create a hype leading up to the big release. Talking about the Mi Note 10, it's a premium handset with a glass and metal design. It sports a 6.47-inch AMOLED panel on the front and it's powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G processor with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. It runs on MIUI and has a massive 5,260 mAh battery. Coming to the highlight of the phone, which is the optics, the Mi Note 10 has a penta-camera setup at the back. One of the five cameras is a 108MP sensor and it's accompanied by a 12MP portrait lens, a 20MP ultra-wide lens, and a 5MP telephoto camera. There's also a 2MP macro lens. It's a super versatile setup and we just can't wait to play around with all the cameras and see how it fairs against the competition. Here's a sample image taken from the phone with the 108MP camera - © MI Xiaomi is clearly eyeing to one-up the competition here. Realme, which is one of the closest competitors in the country, recently launched the X2 Pro with a 64MP sensor. More megapixels doesn't mean the camera is going to be good, but the versatile setup has definitely grabbed our attention. We'll learn more about the phone's release date and other info very soon, so keep your eyes peeled. Source: Xiaomi View the full article
  8. The old Nokia phones, as we all know, are a tough nut to crack. You may have heard a lot of stories about a Nokia feature phone saving people's lives by stopping a bullet. It's a testament to how durable those really are, which is something we simply can't expect from a modern-day smartphone. However, a recent incident proved that not all modern-day phones are fragile. Last week, a Google Pixel 3 XL smartphone saved a man's life by stopping a bullet from hitting him. Impressive, isn't it? Our photographer was shot by a rubber bullet on Monday in the battlefield of #polyu #hongkong The #pixel3 phone stopped the bullet and was destroyed. He didn't get hurt. Surprised it can still be turned on. @madebygoogle @googlepixels @Claudibus pic.twitter.com/Gtz0jFvHXg — Studio Incendo (@studioincendo) November 19, 2019 The incident happened in Hong Kong and the victim was one of the photographers covering a protest near the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The photo studio then sent out a tweet saying that one of their photographers was shot and got saved by the phone. It's, however, worth pointing out that the bullet in question here isn't a regular bullet from a lethal firearm. It was a rubber bullet, which is essentially a less-lethal alternative to a normal metal bullet. But the phone still saved the man's life because even rubber bullets can sometimes kill people or permanently disable them. Yes, the shot wasn't as lethal as it could've been, but the phone was able to stop the projectile and prevented any kind of mishap from happening. © Twitter/ @studioincendo As you can see from the images, the bullet hit the bottom right corner of the phone. The impact was obviously strong enough to completely shatter the glass on both sides. But we're surprised to see that the phone is still turning on. The display is clearly damaged and the back glass is shattered to a point that it's not safe to use, but the phone still turned on, which goes on to show how durable it is. We live in a world where smartphones and other mobile devices are getting more and more fragile. So, it's definitely a relief to see at least a few of them still holding strong. View the full article
  9. When we thought the future of smartphones is going to be foldable, we didn't think we'll get to see some classic retro phones being brought back. But, Motorola has now decided to bring back the classic 'razr' phone as a foldable device. Yes, you read that right. Motorola has resurrected the classic flip phone as a foldable Android phone. It's like a modern spin on the iconic phone and here's what it looks like - You're gonna flip! #razr #bethefirst #motorolarazr #feeltheflip https://t.co/Ay4BnJ0TVS pic.twitter.com/31ocA3Ybx2 — Motorola Global (@Moto) November 14, 2019 Looks pretty cool, right? As you can see, the overall form factor of the phone is more or less the same, but they have replaced the T9 keypad and the LCD display with a single display that folds from the middle. This is a plastic OLED panel, but Motorola has managed to make it fold without a visible crease in the middle. As for the specs though, we think Motorola could have done a better job. They're simply banking on the nostalgia factor here, hoping that people would pay the price to go back in time and feel the flip. © Motorola The Motorola Razr sports a 6.2-inch 21:9 plastic OLED panel inside that fold in half along the horizontal axis. There's also a smaller 2.7-inch panel inside which Motorola is referring to as a 'QuickView' display. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 710 processor coupled with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. As for the battery, the phone packs a 2510mAh battery with 15W TurboPower charging and runs on Android 9 Pie out of the box. In terms of the optics, the Razr phone sports a 16MP rear camera with an f/1.7 aperture and there's a 5MP front-facing shooter with an f/2.2 aperture. © Motorola Since this is essentially a new version of the classic flip phone, Motorola has also added something called the 'Retro Razr' mode which turns the display into an image of a display and keypad. It makes it sort of look like the old Razr phone. Pricing & Availability Motorola has launched the razr phone for $1,499 and it will be available to pre-order on December 26. The phone will go on sale starting in January 2020 in the US. Motorola India has also confirmed that the phone is coming to India very soon, although we don't have a release date for it just yet. We hope to learn more about it very soon, so keep your eyes peeled. View the full article
  10. Recently, PM Narendra Modi hosted a reception at his residence that was attended by the who's who of Bollywood. From Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez to Kangana Ranaut and Ekta Kapoor, almost every famous celebrity attended the 'Change Within' event, posted selfies and pictures from the party and thanked PM Modi for inviting them. View this post on Instagram Excellent interaction with leading film personalities and cultural icons. A post shared by Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) on Oct 19, 2019 at 9:48am PDT However, there's an interesting backstory that was shared by veteran singer SP Balasubrahmanyam on social media, where he low-key expressed how upset he was with PM Modi for being partial towards the Bollywood celebrities. Singer Balasubrahmanyam was also present at the same event, but he didn't post any pictures from there, nor any selfies with PM Modi. Why? Because his phone and that of a few other guests were taken away by the security personnel and they were given tokens for the same. So, how were the Bollywood celebrities allowed to carry their phones inside? That's exactly the point everyone is raising now. In his post on Facebook, he wrote "I am grateful to Ramoji Raoji, (Eenadu), because of whom I was able to attend a reception hosted by our Hon. Prime Minister at his home on the 29th of Oct. Upon entering the premises, we were asked to leave our cellphones with the security personnel and were given tokens for the same. But I was bewildered at the STARS taking selfies with the PM on that day. THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMMM????? (sic)" The 'Change Within' event was organised to promote the ideologies of Mahatma Gandhi.

  11. Remember we told you about a 'TikTok Phone' which the app's parent company was supposed to launch? Well, the phone is now official. It's not called 'TikTok Phone' as we all expected (although that would've been cool), but it still looks like a decent phone. The phone is called Jianguo Pro 3. It's a Chinese name because the phone is being released under a brand called Smartisan, which TikTok's parent company Bytedance acquired earlier this year. By the way, 'Jianguo' translates to 'Nut' in English, so don't be surprised if you see a phone called 'Nut Pro 3' in the news somewhere. (c) Smartisan Bytedance helped make the Jianguo Pro 3 and hence it comes with a lot of branded features that scream TikTok. Apparently, users can swipe up on the lock screen of the phone and jump directly into the Chinese TikTok app. Yeah, why go through the hassle of unlocking and looking for the app, when you can simply open it from the lock screen and get to business, right? Additionally, it looks like the users will also be able to apply TikTok effects and filter to videos of any length. So if your TikTok doesn't let you record long videos with its effects and filters, then this smartphone might actually be useful to you. So clearly the phone has a lot of fancy camera features that are targetted towards the TikTok users. (c) Twitter Speaking of cameras, the Jianguo Pro 3 actually comes with a bunch of cameras. There are 5 cameras to be more specific. A quad-camera setup at the back and a selfie shooter on the front. The quad-camera setup at the back is pretty decent as it includes a 48MP primary sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide camera, an 8MP telephoto lens, and a 5MP macro lens. For selfies, there's a 20MP camera on the front. Other hardware specs are also nice. It's powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855+ SoC with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. It has an in-display fingerprint scanner and a 4,000 mAh battery with Quick Charge 4+. Jianguo Pro 3 has been launched at a starting price of 2,899 yuan, which is around Rs 29,000. You can pre-order one and import it from China if you want because we doubt if it will make its way out of China. There's no word about it yet, and we'll keep you posted if there is an update.

  12. Football referees are serious business. During the game, if you manage to get a look at their faces, you'd realise that they are even more dialed in than the players and are looking for the minutest of problems to blow that whistle. But in a first, this referee turned out to be the most hilarious and chat-worthy part about a football game. Why? Well, because she showed legendary Brazilian player Kaka a yellow card just so that she could get her phone out and grab a quick selfie with the man. During a charity match for peace in Israel, the former AC Milan and Real Madrid veteran scored with an amazing kick in the 44th minute to help his side of Bralizian legends take a 3-2 lead in the first half. It is at this point that the female referee blew the whistle, got her yellow card out in front of Kaka and brought the game to a standstill. The 2007 Ballon d'Or winner stood there perplexed as to what had happened when the official ran up to him and asked for a selfie, and the 37-year-old couldn't say no. While some of the other big names of the football world also took part in the game with the Brazilian roster boasting names like Ronaldinho, Roberto Carlos, Rivaldo, Cafu and Bebeto, it was evident that Kaka was the star showstopper and the crowd had rushed to the stadium just to get a glimpse of the AC Milan Hall of Famer playing the way he once used to. Given the whole vibe of the charity peace game, the rest of the Brazilian players, who can get pretty riled up about co-curricular activities during a game, also went up to the referee and shook hands with her. One can't help but imagine what would happen if one of the Premier League referees tried to pull a stunt like that? View the full article
  13. 2019 has been a spectacular year for smartphones, especially the budget ones. Between just Xiaomi and Realme, we got more than 15 smartphones in the budget segment, which is absolutely incredible. But as a fan of the Redmi Note series since the Redmi Note 3, I was super excited about the release of the Redmi Note 8 series in India. It's safe to say that every new handset in the Redmi Note series has brought exciting updates while maintaining an affordable price tag. I mean, it's not called the "King Of Budget Phones" for no reason. But I was particularly interested to know what the Redmi Note 8 brought to the table since it hasn't been that long since the Redmi Note 7's launch. Anyway, I've been using the Redmi Note 8 as my primary phone since it was launched in India, and I think it's currently the best phone to buy if you're looking for one under Rs 10,000. Here's why I think so - Design & Build Quality © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer I've said this before and I'll say it again - design and build quality is no longer a tradeoff when it comes to budget phones. Xiaomi itself has a lot of budget phones that look just as good as some of the premium flagships out there, if not better. Well, the Redmi Note 8 is no exception. The Redmi Note 8's design isn't a radical improvement like the Redmi Note 8 Pro, but it still looks very elegant. I really love what Xiaomi is doing with the "Aura Design". I personally think that the "Moonlight White" is the best color, but I'd say the Neptune Blue which I got for review isn't too shabby either. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The quad-camera module makes it stand out, but I am not a huge fan of the camera bump itself. But I like the fact that Xiaomi hasn't skimped on things like the 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C port, IR blaster, etc. There's also a fingerprint scanner at the back, which is fast and reliable. Overall, I really dig the Redmi Note 8's design and build quality. It's a well-built phone that looks good and has pretty much everything that you'd want in a phone. Display © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The Redmi Note 8 has a 6.3-inch FUllHD+ panel on the front with a waterdrop notch on top. By now, I am used to having a notch on the top, so should you unless you're willing to put up with mechanical parts of the pop-up selfie camera module. But I don't like the "Redmi" branding on the chin. The display itself is an IPS panel, which gets decently bright in direct sunlight. Of course, it's not as good as an OLED panel, but it's solid for the price. You also get the usual set of options to customize the display, and there are things like the blue light filter, etc. on MIUI. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer During my review, I watched a lot of shows on Netflix and YouTube and also did some gaming to see if I had any issues. But I am happy to report that it's a perfectly serviceable display, and you should have no issues with it whatsoever. Performance & Software The Redmi Note 8 is powered by the Snapdragon 665 SoC and it comes with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage. The storage, by the way, is expandable via a microSD card slot up to 512GB. Unlike the Redmi Note 8 Pro's Helio G90T, the Snapdragon 665 SoC is a tried and tested piece of hardware. It's also the one powering devices like the Realme 5 and Xiaomi's Mi A3, and I think the SoC with its 11nm architecture is solid for this price range. You'll have no issues using the Redmi Note 8 for basic tasks like web browsing, using social media, media consumption, etc. They all work flawlessly on this SoC, so no worries there. Gaming experience, however, is probably not the best we've seen so far. © MensXP Of course, you can run titles like PUBG Mobile, Call Of Duty Mobile, etc., but you may notice occasional lags and frame drops every now and then. If you're someone who likes to play a lot of games on phones, then you might want to pick up the Redmi Note 8 Pro. I mean, the "G" in Helio G90T stands for gaming, so you can't go wrong with that. On the software side of things, the Redmi Note 8 is currently running on MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie. It's kind of a bummer that these phones aren't running the new MIUI 11 out of the box, but that update is coming later this year, so there's nothing to worry about. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer As for the software, well, it's MIUI so there's a lot of room for improvement. There's nothing particularly wrong with the software, but I hate that I have to clear a bunch of pre-installed apps on a new phone. Also, the ads that keep showing up every now and then. If you're coming from a Xiaomi phone, then you know what to expect. Camera With the Redmi Note 8, Xiaomi now has a phone with quad-cameras for under Rs 10,000. The Redmi Note 8's setup includes a 48MP primary sensor with an f/1,79 aperture, an 8MP Ultra wide-angle camera, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, the Redmi Note 8 sports a 13MP selfie shooter. Xiaomi's camera app has also improved a lot and it now offers a lot of features. There's a dedicated night mode for taking pictures in low-light, and the phone also lets you record macro videos, which is quite impressive. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The images taken during the day time with good lighting have lots of detail and I like how the ISP tries to maintain the original colours in the scene. The exposure seems to be on point with great textures. I also took a ton of low-light pictures at night with the Redmi Note 8 and found its 'Night Mode' to be really impressive. A few macro shots that I managed to capture also turned out much better than I expected. Again, there's still some room for improvement, but I like the cameras on the Redmi Note 8. Here are some camera samples - Battery Life The Redmi Note 8 packs a 4,000mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging. In fact, Xiaomi is being super generous by adding the 18W fast-charger inside the box. I think that's really cool, and there's something to learn for every manufacturer. It's the little things like this that make the phone worth recommending. On a single charge, I was getting about 5 to 6 hours of screen on time, which is not bad at all. I consider myself a heavy user, and I go hard when I am reviewing a phone with max brightness and all that stuff. With that, I'd say we have a winner here. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The Final Say The Redmi Note 8 starts at Rs 9,999 in India, which if you ask me is incredibly good. In fact, I think the Redmi Note 8 is currently the best phone under Rs 10,000 and that says a lot about it considering the fact that we got some really good budget phones this year. The real competition is coming from none other than Realme in the form of the Realme 5. But all things considered, the Redmi Note 8 seems like a more well-rounded phone and things like 18W fast-charger inside the box makes it an even better deal. You should totally check out the Redmi Note 8 Pro if you can stretch the budget, but the Redmi Note 8 is the real budget king!
  14. HTC is back in the news, but we're not sure if it's for a good reason. While on the bright side we finally have the cryptocurrency phone that it promised to launch, on the other hand, we're not sure if it's even worth the wait. So the new cryptocurrency phone is called Exodus 1s and the main selling point of the phone is that it can function as a full Bitcoin node by itself. What does that mean? Well, the phone can verify and perform transactions on-device without having to rely on any other service. © HTC That's cool, but you'll have to invest in a big microSD card for that. Why? Well, the current Bitcoin ledger which holds the record for all bitcoin transactions takes up to 260GB. The ledger is very important for this phone to work properly and it's growing in size by the day. So if you want to use this particular phone to buy and sell cryptocurrencies, then you'll have to shell some money. But that's not even the worst part. The HTC Exodus 1s is running on age-old hardware, which makes absolutely no sense in today's world. The Exodus 1s is powered by Snapdragon 435 SoC, which is a three-year-old processor. And it's running on, get this, two-year-old Android 8.1 Oreo. © HTC Seriously? It's possible that people who buy this phone don't care about the software experience, but throwing in a three-old-processor? And we doubt how safe this phone will even be when you think about the 2-year-old software. In case you're interested in this phone, it's available for purchase in Europe, Taiwan, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE, and it'll cost you around $250 which is roughly Rs 18,000. Yeah, it looks cool from the outside, but you should stay away from it.
  15. It's been a phenomenal year for smartphone buyers in the budget segment. Among options from makers like Realme, Samsung, Vivo, and Xiaomi, we now have a ton of great budget phones on the market. And Xiaomi has already been heating things up by launching two different budget phones in just the past couple of weeks. Today, we'll be talking about the Redmi 8. The Redmi series, as you probably already know, sits between Xiaomi's Redmi A series and the Redmi Note series. The Redmi 8 is no exception, and it sits right between the Redmi 8A and the new Redmi Note 8. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer There's a lot to like about the Redmi 8, but it's hard to forget that there are a ton of other options out there, some from Xiaomi itself, that are equally good or even better. So is the Redmi 8 worth buying? Let's find out! Design & Build Quality Xiaomi has been making some really good-looking phones lately and the Redmi 8 can also be added to that particular list. It sports a seamless finish with a single piece of a plastic panel covering the back and the frame. It's slightly thicker and heavier, but I don't mind using such a device if I am going to get an impressive battery life. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Both color variants of the phone have a glossy, mirror-like finish, so it's kind of hard to keep them clean, but I must say that I really love the way this phone looks. It's also not too big and rests nicely in the palm, and the curved design makes it easy to get a good grip as well. Overall, I really like the design and the build quality of the Redmi 8. In fact, there's hardly anything to hate here because the phone also has a USB Type-C at the bottom and a 3.5mm headphone jack too. Xiaomi has now got a good grip on the design and almost all of their phones, irrespective of the budget, look very elegant. Good job, Xiaomi! Display © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer The Redmi 8 sports a 6.22-inch HD+ IPS display with a waterdrop-style notch at the top. Not only does it look similar to the Redmi 8A, but I'd also say it looks like any other budget phone that's out there. This one also has a chin on the bottom with 'Redmi' branding, and that's something which I'm not a big fan of. The display itself is good and I am happy to say that it's protected by Gorilla Glass 5. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer I'd say it gets decently bright so you can comfortably use it outdoors, but the colors are a bit off out of the box. You might want to tune the colors of the display from the settings to make it look good. I must point out that this isn't a high-resolution display, so you'll definitely notice the pixels if you go looking for them. Performance & Software The Redmi 8 is an entry-level phone that's powered by the Snapdragon 439 SoC and comes with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. I was kind of surprised to learn that the Redmi 8 is powered by the Snapdragon 439 SoC since it's essentially a step down from the Snapdragon 632 used by the Redmi 7. But this one does have more RAM and storage than the predecessor. So, how's the performance? Well, obviously numbers will show you different results, but I think it's just as good as the Redmi 7 if not better. These are entry-level smartphones that aren't meant to keep up with heavy lifting. The Redmi 8 will do just fine in day-to-day usage, juggling between apps, etc. Unless you're trying to stress-test by opening a bunch of apps together, you'll be happy with the Redmi 8. © MensXP Similarly, gaming isn't going to be very enjoyable on an entry-level phone. That said, you can play games on this phone if you really want to. Basic games will do just fine, but I won't recommend running Asphalt 9 and PUBG Mobile and expect a solid performance. Just keep that in mind. As for the software, the Redmi 8 is running MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie. I am not a huge fan of MIUI, but there's definitely a lot to like. Bloatware aside, it does come with a ton of features and I am sure you'll like a couple of them like gestures, theme support, etc. Camera The Redmi 8, just like the Redmi 8A, sports a dual-camera setup which includes a 12MP Sony IMX363 sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. I'd like to take a moment to point out that this is the same 12MP sensor that's used in the Pixel 3a as well. Yes, the Google Pixel 3a, the phone which has been my first choice for photography. That said, images taken on the Redmi 8 look nothing like the ones taken from a Pixel 3a. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer Honestly, I'd say the images are just okay-ish at best. The dynamic range in limited and it tends to blow up the highlights. It's also worth pointing out that the phone struggles to lock focus, resulting in blurry images for the most part. Even low-light shots suffer for the most part. Don't get me wrong, the Redmi 8 can take good images provided that there's good lighting and you have steady hands. But I'd say it's still a challenge to take very good-looking images out of this phone which I'd like to share online. That is definitely a deal-breaker for me, and I am sure you'll find better camera phones out there if you're willing to spend slightly more. Anyway, here are some camera samples that I managed to take during my testing - Battery Life The Redmi 8 sports a 5,000mAh battery, and let me tell you that it's very hard to kill this phone. The huge size, coupled with not-so-powerful internals and just HD+ display makes the Redmi 8 a long-lasting phone. Even with moderate usage which includes watching videos online and browsing social media apps, I struggled to exhaust the phone's battery for almost two days. © MensXP/ Karthik Iyer It's also worth pointing out that the Redmi 8 supports 18W fast charging and even the included 10W charger inside charges the phone fairly quickly. The Final Say So, is the Redmi 8 worth the asking price of Rs 7,999? Well, in all fairness, the Redmi 8 is an entry-level phone that has a lot going for it. The look and feel of the phone is pretty solid, and I really like how Xiaomi has improved the things that matter the most like battery life. Although you can't really push the Redmi 8 to get a solid performance or use it to get mind-blowing pictures, I'd still say it has plenty to offer if you're looking for a new phone in this price segment. That said, if you don't mind spending a little more, I'd suggest you check out the Redmi Note 8 which is way more impressive for the price.
  16. The game Fortnite has been a reason for a lot of discussions these days. The 'black hole' was the only thing you could see on Twitter for a couple of days. But, now that the hole has closed and the game is back. So it must be a relief for a lot of people. While mostly people who actually play the game were talking about it online, Fortnite became one of the biggest trends yesterday because of the black hole and it was everywhere on Twitter. No one could escape the tweets about it, so naturally people who don't know about it or what was happening got a little curious. Even Lady Gaga had a very important question - What's fortnight — Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) October 15, 2019 Before anyone roasts her, it's nice she's asking questions a lot of people are afraid to ask.

  17. Yay, the fifth 'Friend' is finally on Instagram, only one to go now! Jennifer Aniston joined Instagram yesterday and well, let's see how long it will take her to 'take a break' from it. (I promise this is the first and last 'on a break' joke) Her picture on the social media platform, obviously, had to be related to Friends because, of course, she killed it with a selfie with all of her friends. Only Mathew Perry is left to join Instagram and then we'll have the complete set. Coke on a phone and a card in hand. Aniston has the right friends https://t.co/0V3AwXwWCn — Shaun B. (@Beano__) October 15, 2019 Anniston joining Instagram basically broke the app and literally every celeb has commented on her picture and welcomed her. A lot of people also couldn't help but trash the horrible quality of the picture. Come on, Jen, you're a millionaire, get a better phone. Yes, the picture is adorable and making people nostalgic about the classic TV show, but almost everyone missed out on the most important part of the picture. Jen, what is that? © Instagram/Jennifer Aniston Is that coke? © Instagram/Jennifer Aniston Jen, we need answers. Moreover, it's pretty well-known that Mathew Perry has struggled with substance abuse for years, and it was actually pretty bad when they were filming the show back in the day as well. It could very well be a reflection on the phone and just a repeat of that infamous Karan Johar video. Remember the controversies? Or, it could actually be coke and she just didn't realize it was there before posting. When you have Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, David Schwimmer, Matt Le Blanc, Lisa Kudrow, and Mathew Perry, obviously, people won't look at anything else, least of all a phone on the table. While we're still confused about what it actually is, some people are convinced it's coke for sure and are honestly finding it iconic. The lines of coke on top of the iphone in Jennifer Aniston's first Instagram picture is one hell of a way to make your social media debut. https://t.co/5mLshMlNxL — ð ð ð ð ð ð ð ð (@deviIette) October 16, 2019 But mostly, people are just asking the same question. is that coke on the phone #friends #JenniferAniston pic.twitter.com/rupV4KOTNR — #46 simmsy #44 (@simmsy501) October 15, 2019 We never knew it was gonna be this way.

  18. We've already seen a couple of gaming phones from the likes of ASUS, Black Shark, etc. in India. And now, the Chinese smartphone maker Nubia has also launched the new Red Magic 3 gaming phone in the country. The Nubia Red Magic 3 has a lot going for it like an internal cooling, flagship specifications like Snapdragon 855 SoC, and more. Well, here's everything that you need to know about this phone. © Nubia The Nubia Red Magic 3, just like the OnePlus 7 Pro, sports a 90Hz 6.65-inch FHD+ panel with support for HDR. As mentioned earlier, the phone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 SoC and it comes with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. The Red Magic 3 also has an Adreno 640GPU to take care of the graphics side of things. The Nubia Red Magic 3 is also the world's first smartphone to sport an internal cooling fan. Yes, this particular phone, regardless of the variant you buy, comes with a cooling fan to keep things nice and cool while you're gaming. In addition to a cooling fan, the phone also takes advantage of the liquid cooling system. © YouTube Yes, it sounds like overkill, but there's no such thing as 'too much' power when it comes to anything related to gaming, and we're glad that Nubia has decided to pack this phone with all these features. The internals of the Red Magic 3 will be kept powered by a 5,000 mAh battery with support for 27W quick charging, just like the Black Shark 2. In terms of the optics, the Red Magic 3 sports a 48MP Sony IMX 586 at the back, and there's a 16MP selfie shooter on the front. The phone is also said to be capable of recording 8K videos and we're sure the cooling fan will come handy in such cases. Other noteworthy specs of the phone include shoulder buttons for gaming and front-facing stereo speakers for an immersive media consumption experience. Pricing & Availability The Nubia Red Magic 3 will be available exclusively through Flipkart. The Red Magic 3 starts at Rs 35,999 for the base variant and it goes all the way up to Rs 46,999 for the high-end variant with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage.
  19. 2019 has been one heck of a year for ByteDance, the operator of the popular video app TikTok. The app saw tremendous growth over the last few months and even got banned for a couple of weeks in India before getting back online. Now, if a new report is something to go by, then it looks like ByteDance is planning to launch its own smartphone too. Yes, you read that right, the TikTok owner is said to be working on a new smartphone to step into the hardware realm. © Reuters According to the Financial Times, two of their sources have reportedly confirmed that ByteDance is readying its own smartphone that will, of course, ship with ByteDance's app pre-installed. The fact the ByteDance's new phone will ship with its own app isn't all that surprising. In fact, that appears to be the primary reason behind the company's decision of making its own smartphone. One way of getting people to use your apps and services is by making phone makers pre-install the apps, so users can start using them out of the box. Well, TikTok being TikTok, it appears as though no phone makers are ready to pre-install it or even other ByteDance apps for that matter. © Reuters The report noted that ByteDance CEO Zhang Yiming has “long dreamt” of building a smartphone full of preloaded apps. And it's been confirmed that the company has even signed a deal with Smartisan earlier this year to start building the phone. There's still a lot that we don't know about this TikTok phone. We don't know what it would be called, what it'll look like, etc. But if ByteDance ends up making this phone, then it's guaranteed to come pre-installed with ByteDance's apps like TikTok, Lark, Feiliao, etc. Will it worth checking out? Well, if you're a TikTok fan, then maybe yes. But if not, then only time will tell how good or atrocious this phone will be.
  20. Black Shark 2, the gaming phone that we've been waiting to get our hands on for a long time, is finally here in India. It packs pretty much everything that you'd expect from a gaming phone in 2019 like a powerful Snapdragon 855 processor, up to 12GB of RAM and more. Let's check it out. To start with, the Black Shark 2 packs a 6.39-inch Full-HD+ AMOLED display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 2340×1080 pixels resolution. It's doesn't have a 90Hz display like the OnePlus 7 Pro, but the display takes advantage of features like “Fast Finger” and “Magic Touchh”, and has a 43.5ms response time. The “Magic Press” tech, in case you're wondering, works like Apple's 3D display, meaning you'll be able to press down harder on the display to actuate different functions. © Black Shark Internally, the Black Shark 2 is powered by Qualcomm's 7nm Snapdragon 855 chipset, coupled with up to 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. It also features Liquid Cooling 3.0 for even improved heat dissipation. There are 2 vapour chambers and a copper plate inside the phone to keep things cool while gaming. As for the optics, the Black Shark 2 sports dual rear cameras with a 48MP (f/1.75) primary sensor and 12MP (f/2.2) secondary sensor. On the front, there's a 20MP (f/2.0) selfie shooter. The phone also comes equipped with a huge 4,000 mAh battery for which Black Shark is also including a USB Type-C 27W fast-charger. © YouTube All these beefy internals are packed inside a body that looks kickass from the outside. The company says the phone's ergonomic design resembles that of a sports car. Seriously, the Black Shark 2 looks like a true gaming phone with its curvaceous build and metal+glass design. Oh BTW, the phone also comes with LED strips on the edges and a glowing Black Shark logo at the back. Black Shark 2 Accessories In addition to the phone itself, the company also showcased a bunch of accessories to go along with it. There's a fancy cooling fan attachment and switch-style dual controllers. Lastly, you can also get an HDMI to USB Type-C cable and use the “console mode” to hook it up to, say, a TV. Pricing and Availability The Black Shark 2 gaming phone has been launched at Rs. 39,999 in India for the base variant with 6GB RAM & 128GB storage. You can also get your hands on the 8GB+128GB variant for Rs. 49,999. The phone will exclusively be available for sale on Flipkart from 4th June.
  21. 'Call Of Duty: Mobile' is the next free-to-play game that is currently in Beta on Android. Being one of the biggest gaming franchises of all time, the first-person shooter game is already garnering new players every day and is now PUBG mobile's biggest competition yet. The game is currently working for Android smartphones; however, you need to pre-register to access the game via the Play Store. © Call of duty mobile Having said that, there is a way to access the game without having to wait for registrations. The process is a bit more complicated than simply installing the APK file. The game comes with some classic maps from previous AAA Call of Duty games, multiplayer game modes, battle-royals mode, familial characters and signature weapons. © Call Of Duty Mobile In order to play the game, we recommend you have a file management app already installed on your device. Once you have installed a file manager, follow these essential steps below to make the game work: Download the APK file and additional OBB files from here Install the APK file and extract the OBB files. Copy the OBB files into a folder and name it as “com.activision.callofduty.shooter” Copy the com.activision.callofduty.shooter folder and past into the following path: Phone Storage Android OBB After pasting the files, go ahead and start playing the game. © MensXP/Karthik Iyer You can now register yourself with your Facebook account or play as a guest. You can access the game for now; however, you will lose all your progress once the game officially launches as the game is still in beta.
  22. Xiaomi's Redmi phones have been a huge hit for the company. So much so that 'Redmi' is now a separate sub-brand. So far the Redmi has been limited to the budget segment, but the company is about to change that with its upcoming flagship device - the Redmi K20. The Redmi K20, in case you don't know, is a flagship phone, and Xiaomi officials have been calling it the 'flagship killer 2.0'. We still have to wait for it to launch officially to see if it's really a flagship killer, but we do know quite a bit about the phone already, including a picture of it. Rumored Specs That We Know So Far The Redmi K20 has been confirmed to sport Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 SoC, which means the phone will enjoy its space as a flagship phone alongside the Mi 9. As a flagship phone, it's safe to say that it'll carry a minimum of 6GB of RAM, although you can also expect an 8GB RAM variant. © Weibo As for the optics, the Redmi K20 will feature triple cameras on the back. You can clearly see all the three cameras in the render. Here', take a look. © Twitter Furthermore, the primary sensor of the phone is said to be a Sony IMX586 with 48MP resolution. It's the same sensor that's being used by OnePlus for the OnePlus 7 Pro phone, and we're quite optimistic about the picture quality.
