  2. PUBG Mobile is currently one of the most popular games in the country, with millions of active players, and a fair share of controversies. They all go hard when it comes to all the customization and in-game rewards, so Tencent has decided to launch new subscription packages with better rewards. With the latest PUBG Mobile update 0.11.5, the new Prime and Prime Plus subscription are now live in India. These new subscription packages will allow players to purchase Unknown Cash (UC), discounts, and also the option to buy items with Battle Points (BP). The option to buy these subscription packages should show up as soon as you start the game. Here are all the details - © PUBG Corp. Both PUBG Mobile Prime and Prime Plus subscription will get you particulars like UC and the option to buy items with BP. Of course, the rewards are going to be greater with the Prime Plus subscription over the regular Prime subscription. So, with Prime Plus subscription, you'll get the option to keep the items purchased with BP permanently, more UC, RP, etc. What's not included in the Prime subscription are daily free RP points, and other miscellaneous items like one-day advance room card, premium crate coupon, and more. So you'll essentially be shelling out more on the Prime Plus subscription for additional rewards. © PUBG Corp. The PUBG Mobile Prime and Prime Plus subscription package price for Android-based devices starts from Rs 85 per day. For Prime Plus, you'll have to pay Rs 400 per month and the amount goes up to Rs 850 after the first month. For iOS users, the monthly subscription is for Rs 79 and Rs 419 for Prime and Prime Plus respectively. The amount for Prime Plus goes up to Rs 799 after a month.
  3. Samsung's new Galaxy S series flagship phones, as we all know, carry a hefty price tag. In India, you'll be shelling out as much as INR 1,17,900 for a top of the line variant of the Galaxy S10 Plus. The base variant of the Galaxy S10 Plus, on the other hand, is priced at INR 73,900. But just how much does it cost Samsung to make a unit of this phone? Turns out, not much. © YouTube The folks over at Tech Insights investigated a Korean Exynos-powered base variant of the Galaxy S10 Plus and estimated that it would cost Samsung only $420 (~INR 30,000) to manufacture a unit. The $420 price tag, in case you are wondering, is around 42-per cent of the phone's retail price tag of $999. If you take a closer look at the material cost break-up, the phone's 6.4-inch Super AMOLED panel is the most expensive component of the phone, costing as much as $86.50. Samsung is spending around $80 for the chipset and modems, whereas the S10 Plus' camera and memory come in at around $50 each. You can find the detailed component breakdown below - © Tech Insights The $420 price tag represents an increase of around $40 over last year's Galaxy S9 Plus (64GB). The display cost of the Galaxy S10 Plus is up by just $9 over the last year's variant despite having a punch-hole. Interestingly, the new Exynos 9820 processor actually costs $9 less to produce than the Exynos 9810 that powered the Galaxy S9 Plus. It would be interesting to see how much the Snapdragon 855 SoC variant of the Galaxy S10 Plus would cost though. It is, however, worth pointing out that the component prices mentioned above are only estimates, and there could be a lot of other factors that would affect the retail price. There are a ton of other things like marketing cost, R&D, shipping, and more that needs to be considered as well. But overall, it is safe to say that the manufacturing cost of the Galaxy S10 Plus is on par with other Samsung flagships. Source: Tech Insights
  4. Every year, Samsung starts off the year with a bang when it comes to flagship Android smartphones and the Galaxy S10 Plus is no exception. It's the ambitious attempt by Samsung to sway customers towards their products and the Galaxy S10 Plus is one of those devices. Last year, Samsung brought incremental upgrades to the Galaxy S9/S9 Plus from its predecessor which left many of their fans unimpressed. However, the Galaxy S10 Plus is a whole different story as it boasts quite a few upgrades in almost category. The Galaxy S10 Plus has a new 6.-4inch type of screen called the 'Infinity-O display', has a total of five cameras and the world's first ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. Unlike the U.S./Chinese version, the Indian unit is powered by Samsung's own Exynos 9820 chipset and is coupled with various RAM configurations. It comes in three stunning “prism” colours and starts from Rs 73,900 for the 8GB RAM/128GB internal storage variant. We've been using this variant for a few weeks and here's our review to determine whether it's worth the price tag: Design & Display Android smartphones are known to be bold and adventurous when it comes to experimentation and the end result is almost always awesome. Android smartphone companies are trying to experiment with displays to deliver an all-screen phone with various design innovations. Samsung chose to implement its 'Infinity-O' display that offers almost an edge-to-edge screen experience. The S10 Plus almost has zero bezels with the exception of a narrow chin. The dual-selfie camera hole on the display has been carved out using lasers giving it a flush look and achieving a near edge-to-edge display experience at the same time. Having said that, when you first use the Galaxy S10 Plus for watching video content, the holes are a bit distracting until you get used to it. This was true when we reviewed the Honor View 20 and it remains the same as Samsung's offering. However, if you want to hide the holes, you can always implement clever wallpapers like the ones we've mentioned here. The Galaxy S10 Plus is also not a small smartphone that can be used by one hand. It measures 6.2 x 2.91 x 0.3 and needs to be operated with two hands unless you have long fingers. The Galaxy S10 Plus also has a slight curve in the design which can result in accidental touches. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We've been using the Prism White variant of the Galaxy S10 Plus and it is one of the most beautiful colours we've seen on a smartphone. It changes colour whenever the smartphone catches the light and gives off a very regal vibe when viewed from afar. The Galaxy S10 Plus also comes in a ceramic finish (it's more expensive) which feels more durable than the all-glass design. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla In terms of display quality, the Galaxy S10 Plus has a quad HD+ Dynamic AMOLED display which has been termed as the best display on a smartphone yet. It has a wider colour gamut and dynamic tone mapping that enhances colours and brightness. The Galaxy S10 Plus also has a brightness level of 624 nits, highest on any smartphone yet. For reference, the iPhone XS Max has a brightness level of 603 nits. The display itself is one of the best you can find on a smartphone to watch video content on Netflix or Amazon Prime. It supports HDR10+ playback which is probably the highest quality you can get in videos when it comes to dynamic range. The Galaxy S10 Plus also has stereo speakers which are powerful enough to accentuate the experience further as it is powerful, clear and loud. The speakers have rich audio and a robust sound overall. Performance Our Galaxy S10 Plus unit is powered by Samsung's Exynos 9820 chipset and is coupled with 6GB of RAM. Having said that, the Exynos 9820 chipset is not as fast as Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 chipset which you can find on a U.S. version of the smartphone. The Snapdragon 855 chipset is based on TSMC's 7nm process, whereas the Exynos 9820 is based on an 8nm LPP FinFET process. Regardless, the Exynos 9820 processor works like a beast and showed some impressive results in benchmark scores. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla We also played games like Asphalt 9 and PUBG Mobile to check it's overall gaming performance. The Galaxy S10 Plus was able to run both games in the highest settings without any drops in FPS. Having said that, we did see the Galaxy S10 Plus overheat a bit right under the camera module at the back. On Geekbench 4, which measures overall performance, the S10 Plus turned in a multi-core score of 10,146, which beats the OnePlus 6T (8,972) and Pixel 3 (7,316). © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Even though the graphics are at par with other Android flagship devices, the Exynos version of the Galaxy S10 Plus underperformed when it comes to GPU benchmark scores. It managed to score 4265 on 3DMark Sling Shot Extreme score (OpenGL ES 3.1 test). In fact, the iPhone XS, Pixel 3 and the OnePlus 6T pulled ahead in this department. Battery Life When it comes to battery life of the Galaxy S10 Plus, the performance was slightly above average as it could not last longer than a full day of charge. Sometimes, the Galaxy S10 Plus would not even survive the full day depending on our usage. Keep in mind, we were testing an Exynos version and the battery life performance may differ for a Qualcomm version. We used the Galaxy S10 Plus for navigation, mild gaming, 4G LTE web browsing, music/video streaming and reading comic books. We had almost 4 hours 30 minutes of screen on time and the smartphone could last only a day and then some. This is with light usage which was not impressive considering the Galaxy S10 Plus has a 4,100 mAh battery. You can always switch the display to Full HD+ in order to conserve more battery life however QHD+ is so much better for watching videos which obviously sacrificed battery life. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy S10 Plus also has reverse charging if you want to charge any of your accessories or even second wireless charging supported smartphone. It's called 'PowerShare' and it turns the back of the S10 Plus into a charging mat. The PowerShare feature works great to charge accessories like a smartwatch and the great part is that the smartphone automatically disables the feature once your battery level falls to 30 per cent. Biometrics © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla This is the first time Samsung has included an in-display fingerprint sensor on a smartphone and it works a little different from what you may have seen before. It is embedded right into the screen and is fast to set up. You simply have to hold your finger in the specific area of the screen and it unlocks quite fast. Sure, it isn't as fast as a traditional fingering sensor, however, it does work when we need it to. It comes in handy in dark environments as the facial recognition on the Galaxy S10 Plus isn't as accurate. Having said that, during the day when facial recognition works, it is quite fast and you won't end up using the fingerprint scanner anyway. In terms of accuracy, there were a few instances when fingerprints weren't being read however overall the ultra-sonic sensor was consistent and accurate when scanning thumbs. Camera © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy S10 Plus has a triple-camera setup at the back and dual selfie camera at the front. The rear setup has an optically stabilised 12-megapixel main sensor with a dual aperture that can switch between f/1.5 for night shots and f/2.4 for the day. The second sensor is an ultra-wide 16-megapixel f/2.2 sensor that lets you capture more field of view and lastly a stabilised 12-megapixel telephoto sensor. The wide-angle camera lens works similar to what we have seen on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and other Samsung phones. You can zoom out and capture a wider field of view and somewhat get a fish-eye effect. It's a great lens to use, especially if you like to capture a lot of landscapes and environments. Having said that, the ultra-wide lens did give off some grain in low-light which is manageable by editing the images in third-party software. The portrait mode is known as “Live Focus” is also a dream to work with as it accurately blurs the background on objects and even pets. In fact, our favourite lighting option in 'Live Focus' mode is the “Colour Point” mode which basically turns the background into monochrome. The triple camera also does a great job of utilising HDR which you can see in one of our samples below. It was able to capture the blue sky and the definition of the clouds accurately. Having said that, we would have loved to see a dedicated night mode similar to what we see on the Pixel 3 and even budget Android phones like the Redmi Note 7 Pro. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The front cameras also feature dual-lens setup which basically lets you take normal or wide-angle selfies. You can even use the same portrait mode effect like “Colour Point” while using the selfie camera. It does a great job at blurring the background and is at par with other flagship smartphones. Here are a few camera samples that you can review below: View this post on Instagram Pictures shot using the #GalaxyS10Plus. I was quite satisfied with the picture quality, especially the "Colour Point" feature in the portrait mode. Wide-angle also does a decent job. #Technology #GalaxyS10 #tech #Gadgets #Smartphones #techie #samsung A post shared by Akshay Bhalla (@editorinchief) on Mar 4, 2019 at 8:45am PST The Final Say If you are looking for a powerful Android smartphone that can tick almost every box, the Galaxy S10 Plus is a great purchase you can consider. It has one of the best screens on a smartphone and takes some awesome pictures. It even supports HDR10+ content which is a plus if you like to watch movies on-the-go. Having said that, we did find the Galaxy S10 Plus lacking in the battery life department which we are sure can be fixed in a future OTA update. Overall, the Galaxy S10 Plus is very familiar to what we've seen before but at the same time makes huge leaps with various new features.
  5. Neymar Jr., the world's most expensive footballer, may have been ruled out for 10 weeks because of a metatarsal injury, but that didn't stop him from celebrating his birthday in the most epic (and fashionable) way possible. He wore a red suit, layered impeccably and accessorized with a hat. © Instagram The fact that he's truly fashion forward was proved by his choice of outfit and the way he accessorized them. Who in the world would have thought of using one's crutches as a fashion accessory? He just did that by carrying crutches that matched the colour of his outfit. © Instagram © Instagram Coming to footwear, he wore a pair of Jordans by Nike that had his name and birthday written on them. View this post on Instagram A post shared by EneJota ð§ð· ð» neymarjr (@neymarjr) on Feb 4, 2019 at 8:50am PST © Instagram © Instagram Let's just all agree that a birthday outfit doesn't get better than this. Get well soon, Neymar!
  6. The Galaxy S10+ is expected to launch soon. However, we've previously seen various leaks and renders that suggested its design. It was rumoured to have a large Infinity-O display with a wide cutout for front-facing cameras. The cut out was in the shape of a pill that suggested it would sport a dual front-facing camera setup. It seems like the rumours may have been true all along as it was spotted in the wild and we finally have a real-life image. © Slashleaks The image was posted on Slashleaks where the alleged smartphone was being used in a bus. The image is not as sharp as we would like it but it still gives away quite a few details. We can see on the top right corner of the screen where the pill-shaped dual camera setup is present. The bezels have also been reduced considerably as we can see the display covers most of the front. © Twitter/VenyaGeskin1 We've already seen a punch-hole design on the Honor View 20; however, it would be interesting to see if Samsung's front-facing camera actually works in the favour of the user. It could be a bit more intrusive. However, we can only know that once we use the device for ourselves. Previous rumours have suggested that the Galaxy S10 and S10 E will have a similar punch-hole camera setup as renders have shown a smaller cutout. The Galaxy S10+ is also said to have a 4,000 mAh battery just like the Galaxy Note 9. © Twitter/Evan Blass The launch date for these phones have already been confirmed and will launch on February 20th in San Francisco. The company has decided to skip the Mobile World Conference and it is unlikely that we will see any other major announcements from the South Korean giant that week. It's not the first time Samsung has skipped the conference, as in 2017, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S8 at a separate event in March. The smartphones are also rumoured to have an in-display fingerprint sensor and a headphone jack. If you want to know more about the upcoming smartphones you can always check out our previous coverage here. Samsung is also expected to launch the first 5G phone alongside the Galaxy S10 and is expected to have souped-up specifications as well. You can read all about Samsung's 5G phone here.

  8. Google confirmed on Monday that it will be shutting down Google+, a long forgotten social network that has been around for ages. Google said it was facing “significant challenges in creating and maintaining a successful Google+ product that meets consumers' expectations”, which means that the company was not able to run the platform successfully owing to a low user base. But, the most important factor here is that up to 500,000 Google+ user accounts were potentially affected by a bug that may have exposed their data to external developers, and this is what triggered the company to shut down the social network for consumers. Google opted not to disclose the issue, partly because of fears of regulatory scrutiny, the Wall Street Journal reported. © Engadget The company discovered a bug in one of Google+'s People APIs, that allowed apps' access to data from Google+ profiles that weren't marked as public. The bug was discovered six months back but wasn't announced publicly until now. Though, Google defended its actions saying “We found no evidence that any developer was aware of this bug or abusing the API, and we found no evidence that any Profile data was misused. However, Google+ is only shutting down for consumers, the product will remain active for Enterprise users. Google thinks the product still has a lot of potential and is already among the top choices for companies to run their internal social networks. Google will announce new Enterprise-focused products for Google+ in the near future. © Reuters Launched in 2011, Google+ was touted as an expansive social-networking platform that allowed more options for engagement than other social-media sites. However, the platform was never really able to take off. Google tried its best to port existing Gmail users to the new website, but people simply made accounts and left, active engagement has always been missing. Google has clarified that the data breach does not include "any other data you may have posted or connected to Google+ or any other service, like Google+ posts, messages, Google account data, phone numbers, or G Suite content." © Reuters Data protection laws and scrutiny by regulators has increased exponentially this year after Facebook's Cambridge Analytica scandal came to light. To prevent further complications, Google intends to keep Google+ in the past and move on.
  9. Smartphone companies have now started banking on devices that not only appeal to the masses but also offer value for money. Chinese companies like Xiaomi marvelled the idea in India and now there's an unexpected challenger giving them a healthy fight. HMD Global has been making some spectacular smartphones that offer a pure Android experience and look sexy at the same time. The Nokia 6.1 Plus is one of those smartphones that are priced modestly and offer a design that isn't being offered by anyone else. Here's our review of the Nokia 6.1 Plus. Design Language and Display © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Nokia 6.1 Plus has been crafted to give you the utmost premium feeling you can imagine that sometimes does not coincide with the price. When we first opened the box, the smartphone felt great in the head and for a second we could not believe this was a mid-tier budget smartphone. It has a glass back finish and overall feels lightweight, It has a USB Type-C port, has a headphone jack and a display with a notch. The inclusion of the headphone jack gives the 6.1 Plus a slight advantage over the Xiaomi Mi A2 in our books and overall feels a much better phone to hold thanks to its uncompromising premium design. The form factor of the smartphone is also quite different from the rest of the smartphones out there. It has a 5.8-inch Full-HD+ IPS LCD screen with an aspect ratio of 19:9 aspect ratio. The smaller form factor is a breath of fresh air especially since everyone is trying to go big when it comes to size. The smaller body does host a bigger display which is probably the biggest difference you will notice from its predecessor. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla At the back, the Nokia 6.1 Plus has a vertical dual camera set up in the centre and a fingerprint sensor right below it. There's a prominent camera bump which can be well protected with the supplied camera cover. The 5.8-inch display has a resolution of 2280X1080p and is not entirely an edge-to-edge design which may disappoint a few full-view display fans. There are very small bezels present beneath the screen albeit visible. Overall, the screen is bright for an LCD display however we did feel that the display did not represent colours accurately. The screen is great for casual use however it does not feel as vibrant when compared to its competition. The notch at the top is ever present as it cannot be turned off from the settings. That could be annoying for some users however the design of the smartphone is distracting enough for people to forget about it. Performance © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla We've been using the smartphone for almost 3 weeks now and we have to say, the Nokia 6.1 Plus performs as well as the Mi A2. It has the Snapdragon 636 processor and is coupled with 4GB of RAM. The phone is not meant for easy duty gaming but it can surely hold its own. We played PES, streamed countless YouTube videos and used it for navigation without ever facing any lag or glitches. The 3,060 mAh battery performed well while performing the above activities. The smartphone easily lasted for an entire full day with a single charge and we could fast charge the phone whenever needed thanks to the USB Type-C charger. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla During the course of our review, the Nokia 6.1 Plus scored a respectable 4903 points on the multi-core score and 1332 on the single-core test. If you want things put in a better perspective, the Nokia 6.1 Plus performed better than the Mi A2 in the multi-core test. Camera Quality © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla As far as the camera quality is concerned, it was the only disappointing feature we came across on the smartphone. The Nokia 6.1 Plus has a 16MP primary lens and a 5MP secondary camera which aides in taking portrait shots. While the camera performed well in well-lit environments, we found the smartphone lacking in dimly lite and low light environments.
