  1. There is no denying that iPhones are one of the most popular smartphones in the world but have you ever thought which ones are the highest-selling units of all time? Well, we wanted to find out for ourselves and compared statistics from Investopedia to find out the answer. It turns out that quite a few models sold in astronomical numbers. These numbers were last updated as of December 2020: 1. iPhone 6 Series © safarulla-kasmi-unsplash The most successful smartphone for Apple is still the iPhone 6/6s series till this day with the smartphone recording a sale of 222.4 million units. In fact, the phone still manages to sell in India today as one can grab a new one for about Rs 15,000. The phone was first launched in 2014 where it featured a 4.7-inch LCD screen, a fingerprint scanner, and up to 128GB of internal storage. The phone was available in three colours i.e. gold, silver and Space Gray. 2. iPhone 5s © christian-allard-unsplash Not surprisingly enough, the iPhone 5s is Apple’s second-highest selling smartphone ever with sales accounting to 163.7 million units. The phone was an upgrade to the iPhone 5 and came with a 4.0-inch display, up to 64GB internal storage and an 8MP primary camera. The phone also featured a front-mounted fingerprint scanner on the home button that could also be used to launch Siri. This was the first time we saw a fingerprint scanner on a smartphone that provided added security via biometrics. 3. iPhone 5 © michael-weidemann-unsplash The iPhone 5 did not come with a fingerprint scanner but it was still one of the highest-selling smartphones for Apple. The phone came with a larger screen when compared to its predecessor. The design of the smartphone was so iconic that it was used three times for subsequent models. The phone also used an aluminium body which was lighter and thinner than the previous models and featured a new Lightning port as well. This was quite controversial at the time since it replaced Apple’s 30-pin design used by previous models and countless accessories. 4. iPhone 6s Series © shiwa-id--unsplash This is a surprising one simply because the iPhone 6s Series was considered to be an incremental upgrade using the same design as its predecessor. The iPhone 6s lineup sold an impressive 124.5 million units worldwide. The phone featured an upgraded 12MP primary camera and had the ability to capture 4K video at 30 frames per second. The iPhone 6s came in the same colours as the iPhone 6 with the addition of Rose Gold as the new colour. View the full article
  2. The Indian government announced a set of guidelines and rules that social media platforms and OTT services such as Netflix, Prime Video and others will have to follow. The rules are officially known as Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules 2021 and will be enforced to moderate content on various platforms. The government listed how it will enforce these rules in detail which you can check out in detail here. And now, we also know the rules that need to be followed in detail, thanks to a PDF of the order shared by Medianama. Here are some of the key rules that digital media platforms will have to adhere to: OTT Platforms © pexels/cottonbro Streaming services will have to start self-regulating and censor content according to a code. Every show on the platform will now have to provide an age certification for content U (for all ages), U/A 7+, U/A 13+, U/A 16+, and A (adult).OTT platforms will now also have to offer a parental lock system to keep children away from mature content rated above U/A 13+. Social Media Platforms © Reuters Social Media companies will also have to appoint a nodal officer beside a grievance officer that can be contacted by law enforcement. The person has to be available at all times and can be contacted directly to address objectionable content. Every social media platform will have to publish a monthly report that will contain information about the number of complaints received and resolved. Social Media Platforms will also bear the responsibility of tracking the originator of objectionable content. This rule is also extended to applications such as WhatsApp and Signal which means instant-messaging apps may have to discontinue end-to-end encryption in the country. Social Media platforms will have to remove offensive content within 36 hours after a court order has been issued. Each platform should also have a voluntary verification program where users can be verified through a mobile number.The government also plans to introduce regulations for digital news publishers where the government has proposed a three-tier mechanism. Publishers will also have a self-regulation code by publishers, an oversight mechanism and a regulatory body of publishers. The rules for digital news outlets are still at an early stage.

  3. With every new role, Alia Bhatt takes her acting prowess to another level, proving why she is the queen of versatility. Just yesterday, the makers of Gangubai Kathiawadi released the teaser and it took the internet by the storm. People loved the teaser and also appreciated Alia for her fierce persona. Then, there were people who felt that Alia is not a perfect fit for the role as she doesn’t match the personality of a strong character like that of Gangubai Kathiawadi. They felt that she might have given her best but for this particular role, strong and mature-looking actors could have been better. Some named Vidya while some preferred Bhumi, Tabu, and Priyanka. Here are the reactions: Really sorry, no hate but imagine a female with a strong and bold attitude like tabu, vidya Or priyanka no offense to alia but it looks like a elaborate costume party! Even a shraddha kapoor or parineeti would have sufficed #GangubaiKathiawadi https://t.co/YbHEpSbP1n — Meowwwwwwww 🐅 (@RoamingInNarnia) February 25, 2021Just saw the teaser of #GangubaiKathiawadi .Though my review doesn't matter at all but as an audience,i didn't like it at all. I think @vidya_balan would have rocked it as alia looks too young and dialogue delivery was not up to the mark. — Akansha 🇮🇳 (@Akansha0619) February 25, 2021I like the teaser but I don't like Alia in it.#GangubaiKathiawadi — Dev Parekh (@DevParekh29) February 25, 2021However, for first time, I get that miscasting feel in SLB movie. Someone like Tabu, Vidya etc could have been more convincing. #GangubaiKathiawadi — Kunal (@KunalSays_) February 25, 2021Vidya Balan/Tabu/Sushmita Sen should have been made the lead actress in Gangubai Kathiwadi movie..... It's a powerful story about a powerful woman ,but Alia Bhatt just doesn't sit good for the role..... Dissapointing#GangubaiKathiawadi — The iatrogenic Doctor 🇮🇳🏻‍⚕️🩺🦠 (@Paramomycin) February 25, 2021People have also made memes on the teaser and some even targeted Alia for being a misfit. Some people even went to say that it felt like a Flipkart advertisement wherein young kids play the role of elders. That’s harsh! I thought it was a Flipkart advertisement Where children play the role of elders #GangubaiKathiawadi #SanjayLeelaBhansali — ER Harshit bhavsar (@harshitbhavsar4) February 25, 2021@aliaa08 in #GangubaiKathiawadiTeaser Its like flipkart ad where children play tye role of elders After Watching audience Reaction #SanjayLeelaBhansali Be like #GangubaiKathiawadi #AliaBhatt pic.twitter.com/xHsmGiHNpK — ER Harshit bhavsar (@harshitbhavsar4) February 25, 2021Alia took Flipkart ads too far!#GangubaiKathiawadi pic.twitter.com/lf7rSBGtmn — Vagabond (@ExMachina1196) February 25, 2021The film is based on one of the chapters of noted author Hussain Zaidi’s book, Mafia Queens of Mumbai. For the uninitiated, Gangubai was an Indian criminal, don, *** worker, and businesswoman who operated a *** racket in the Hera Mandi red light district. She fell in love with her father’s accountant and ran away with him to Mumbai at the age of 16. She wanted to try her luck in movies but everything changed for Gangubai when her husband sold her for Rs 500 to a brothel. Are you excited for this biographical drama that releases on July 30?

  4. Bigg Boss 14 finally came to an end on February 21 and most of us were pretty unhappy as Aly Goni was eliminated in the finale. Post the show, though, what has kept fans excited and glued to their phones are his appearances with Jasmin Bhasin. While their bond instantly grabs everyone's attention, even Aly's fashion game can't be missed or ignored. © Viral Bhayani Goni has been spotted in some stellar outfits, back to back, ever since he came out of the BB House. If you also take a quick glance at his Instagram profile, you would see him sporting some flamboyant outfits and sneakers. Recently, when he was seen with Jasmin at the Mumbai airport, we couldn't help but check out his swanky look. © Gucci Aly was seen wearing Gucci's Tennis 1977 sneaker. These are low-top sneakers and presented in blue and ivory stretch cotton along with a monogram motif. The style has the brand's signature 1977 label detailing with textured GG motif at the sole as well. These tennis shoes aren't ordinary shoes, hence cost almost Rs 48,426, plus the usual customs and import duties levied on them. While such type of sneakers can be assumed to be inexpensive, these, coming from a luxury brand, cost quite a lot. © Louis Vuitton We would also like to talk about the backpack that Aly is carrying here, as it's yet another expensive item that we've seen. This is Louis Vuitton's Dean Backpack with Monogram detailing and a huge front pocket. The style is packed with refined detailing with stamped leather on the corners, and an LV pattern on the back.

  5. Influencers in India may have a tough fight ahead as the Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI) have issued new draft rules for advertising and promotions by influencers on digital platforms. The new rules are being introduced to protect consumer interest as the watchdog seeks to oversee the growing influencer market. © Twitter/Technical-Guruji (For representation purposes only) Unlike the USA, in India influencers are not required to declare any paid promotions or advertising at the moment to their followers which has been problematic in the past. The new draft code now has a rule where influencers will have to clearly identify and label upfront that said communication is an advertisement. “The biggest part of the new rules is to tell consumers that you are watching an ad and not content. That disclosure has to be in a prominent position," said Manisha Kapoor, secretary-general, ASCI. The new rule suggests that influencers will have to distinguish advertisements and paid promotions that a follower can clearly identify. The new rules will be applicable for all digital devices across phones, tablets and laptops. The advertisement or sponsored segment needs to be visible regardless of the product or app is being used or not. The new rules will be applicable across all platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, Youtube amongst others and is applicable to video, audio or picture promotions. For audio, the disclosure needs to be stated at the beginning and the end. © Youtube/GeekyRanjit (For representation purposes only) The rules also extend to claims made for sponsored products to exaggerate claims the brand is making. “In case of a shampoo ad, the influencer should not use a filter to make the hair look shinier," said Subhash Kamath, chairman, ASCI, adding that sponsored posts also need to be truthful and honest. The new rules have been prepared in collaboration with digital and social media influencers and key stakeholders. The rules are open for public discussion and suggestions until 8th march. The final guidelines are going to be introduced by 31st March and will be enforced for all promotional posts published after 15th April 2021. View the full article
  6. Pulkit Samrat's fashion choices are rather zany. The fact that he can up his style game with ultra-dramatic trends is something that very few celebrities have come close to. From his tall sneakers to caged pair, Pulkit has an unbeaten record of sartorial adventures. While we have seen him wear such OTT silhouettes during casual outings and at the airport, he left no stone unturned recently, when was seen at an evening function as well. © Instagram/Pulkit Samrat © Viral Bhayani We usually see celebrities decked in classic silhouettes during such events. Pulkit too was dressed in an elegant manner, in a quirky traditional ensemble, but a quick glance at his feet and you would be stunned at the pair of shoes he wore. But before we speak in detail about the loafers, let's talk about his outfit. © Viral Bhayani Pulkit looked every bit of royalty in his traditional avatar. He is wearing a Bandhgala, with off-centred placket and a high-low silhouette. The houndstooth print in dark hue added a touch of contemporary to his look. He paired this kurta over subtle black pants with tapered hem. Pulkit's outfit has an edge in terms of detailing and the buttons here gave it a sophisticated look. © Viral Bhayani The pair of loafers here helped amp up his style game. The killer spiked loafers add to the rebellious, non-conformist statement. The decoration of razor-sharp spikes in metallic, despite being so edgy, is actually comfortable. While Pulkit's entire outfit is simple and classy, these slip-on, loafers, looked dangerously appealing we would say. © Viral Bhayani Coming to the accessories, we like how he has paired the deconstructed sunglasses here. These are again a kitschy piece to go with this outfit. Add to that, the choice of wearing a smartwatch could have been swapped, for leather or metallic watch. But, since it's Pulkit, we think this accessory still looks resplendent with his overall look. © Viral Bhayani On a serious note, we couldn't take our eyes off the dangerous pair of loafers here and these are our favourite pair of shoes, by far. Way to go, Samrat. View the full article
  7. Kartik doesn't go bonkers with his outfits, but definitely hits it out of the park with the sneakers he wears. He does know how to stock up his shoes well. While most celebrities have shown their love for chunky, dad sneaker trend, Kartik, on the other hand, has always kept it minimal and still makes a statement with it. It also won't be wrong to call him a style maven. His swanky snake jacket, diamond sneakers or the Balmain Fever T-shirt all show his inclination towards zany pieces. © Viral Bhayani © Puma These are Puma's Rebound Lay Up Softfoam sneakers. These sneakers are inspired by the high-top basketball sneakers of the 80s. Furthermore these have Puma's SoftFoam+sockliner, that grants cushioned ride with mid height padded collar, which gives extra stability. © Armani Exchange Coming to the other details of his outfit, Kartik can be seen in a athleisure jacket by Armani Exchange. This jacket is called diagonal stripe lightweight jacket, and comes with a zipper and colourblock design. The sleeve is embellished with the branding. As for the price, this suave jacket costs almost Rs 15,000. The jacket is sitting perfectly over the simple, neat white T-shirt. That, coupled with classic blue denims, made his outfit stand out.

  8. Riteish Deshmukh is one of the most bankable actors of Bollywood. He has proven his mettle in the industry with his on-point comic timing and wit several times. When it comes to fashion and style as well, Riteish has been scrubbing up with his style statement. From his graffiti printed sneakers to his powder blue pants, he has shown up in some standout pieces in the past. When it comes to his personal style, he has found his haven in relaxed yet relatable clothing. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani As for his feet, he can be seen wearing chunky white sneakers, which apparently glow in the dark. It also looks like this trend is going to become huge in B-town as very recently, even Ranveer made a mind-boggling appearance, with his neon sneakers. We are glad to see Riteish serving us with more and more classy looks and this, indeed, is an ensemble styled pretty well. On the work front, he will be a part of Bachchan Pandey and Koochie Koochie Hota Hai. View the full article
  9. OnePlus is known for making flagship-level smartphones that don’t cost as much as its competition. However, even though the company may not have the same ethos anymore, it has still managed to make some incredible smartphones in the past few years. We decided to list some of the best OnePlus smartphones that made the brand a household name in the country. 1. OnePlus One © Youtube_Meteroite Theory OnePlus started off with one of the most iconic devices the company has ever made. The brand launched its first device not so long ago; 2014 to be precise and it did it with the OnePlus One. The smartphone is iconic for various reasons but for many, it was the sandpaper and wooden back panel on this phone that people most remember. The phone also launched with Cyanogen OS, a custom ROM that was most popular amongst the Android modding community. While the company has now moved on to its own Oxygen OS that borrows quite a few features from the custom Android skin, it was the bloat-free experience from Cyanogen OS that users loved the most about the phone. 2. OnePlus 3T © Youtube_Slashdot The OnePlus 3T is often remembered as the biggest leap OnePlus made when it comes to reliability and usability. The 3T was a mid-cycle update to the OnePlus 3 that improved upon the processor and the battery. It was also one of the cleaner designed phones by the company that set a precedent for future smartphones by the company. 3. OnePlus 5T © Youtube_TecworkZ When talking about minimalistic design, OnePlus outdid itself with the update to the OnePlus 5 series. It was the first OnePlus smartphone that came with a full front screen design where it ditched the home button/fingerprint sensor. The phone still had bezels that may seem like a long time ago especially since most phones have adopted an all-screen design today. Instead, OnePlus moved the fingerprint sensor to the back and used the same dual-camera design as the OnePlus 5 at the top. The company also dabbled with releasing special editions for this phone culminating with a Star Wars: Episode VIII — The Last Jedi version. We later saw the company partner with Marvel, McLaren and Cyberpunk 2077. 4. OnePlus 6T © OnePlus The phone that ruined notch phones for everyone was probably the OnePlus 6T's design before it moved to the full-screen experience. The OnePlus 6T changed the controversial notch on the OnePlus 6 to the water-drop design on the 6T which was an instant success amongst OnePlus users. The OnePlus 6T gets a lot of things right and was the company’s first step towards an all-screen smartphone. It was also the debut of the in-display fingerprint sensor for OnePlus which has now become a staple on every Android device today. 5. OnePlus 7/7T Pro © MensXP_ Akshay Bhalla The OnePlus 7/7T Pro are still the best all-screen experience you can have on a smartphone even in 2021. In fact, both smartphones feature the pop-up camera design which we may never see again on smartphones. The OnePlus 7T Pro/7 Pro aren’t much different from each other apart from the processor under the hood. However, both devices were the mark of OnePlus moving to the premium smartphone segment as it was quite costlier as compared to its predecessors. While the company did launch the OnePlus 8 Series in 2020, it lacked the charm the OnePlus 7/7T Pro has. View the full article

Realme X7 Series © Realme Realme has also confirmed that it's kicking things off in 2021 with the new Realme X7 series. The phone is said to be powered by MediaTek's Dimensity 1000+ and the Dimensity 800U chipsets. The phone is also said to feature AMOLED panels and more.

POCO M3 © Poco Although POCO hasn't officially announced that the M3 is coming out next month, some sources have confirmed that it's coming out in February. The phone will reportedly come in two variants and will be priced at around Rs 11,000. Redmi Note 10 Series © Xiaomi Redmi's popular Note 10 series is also expected to debut next month, and we think it'll be a great offering for people who are looking to buy something new without splurging a lot. The exciting thing about this year's Redmi Note series phones is that they'll support 5G too. We'll learn more about these phones soon, so stay tuned. Well, those are some of the phones that we're really excited to check out next month. We'll have more to talk about these devices later when they come out, so stay tuned to MensXP for more info.

Indian Summer (Available on Audible.in) © Audible Steeped in the private papers and reflections of the participants, Indian Summer reveals how the acts of a few players changed the lives of millions and determined the fate of nations. 3. The Indian Army (Available on Audible.in) © Audible Lieutenant General H. S. Panag, as a writer, who straddles the serious and the idyllic with equal ease, unequivocally condemns the tying of a citizen to the bonnet of an army jeep in Kashmir in 2017 in one piece, and in another, tells the intensely passionate, albeit tragic love story of a soldier and a Kashmiri girl. As candid as it is incisive, The Indian Army is a must-listen for every Indian who has stopped to think about the powerful institution that the army is. 4. Inglorious Empire (Available on Audible.in) © Audible Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor shows how Britain's Industrial Revolution was founded on India's deindustrialisation and the destruction of its textile industry. In this bold and incisive reassessment of colonialism, Tharoor exposes the devastating effect and how the inglorious reality of Britain's stained Indian legacy. 5. The End of India (Available on Audible.in) © Audible A brave and passionate book, The End of India, is a wake-up call for every citizen concerned about his or her own future, if not the nation’s. 6.

The lovers meet again in Kargil where Karan is in a warzone. Will the two reunite again? 8. Kashmir The Story (Available on Amazon Prime Video) Kashmir The Story is a documentary which gives an insight into the conflict-ridden region, showcasing facts as they are.

  12. The Galaxy S21 Ultra is going to be available for Indian customers and if you’ve been wondering what are the best features of the phone, we decided to compile a list for you. If you want to know more about the smartphone in detail, do check out our review where we talk about its performance, cameras, and everything else that makes this phone great. However, we handpicked some of the best Galaxy S21 Ultra features that stood out the most during our usage: 1. Design © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy S21 Ultra is probably the most premium smartphone Samsung has ever made, especially the Phantom Black version. The smartphone sports a premium design that feels good in the hand and has a unique finish at the back that makes it feel quite luxurious. This is Samsung at its peak when it comes to the design of the smartphone and we highly recommend checking out the phone for yourself if you need more convincing. It’s probably the only premium Android phone right now that makes other flagship phones feel cheap. 2. S-Pen Support © Samsung If you’ve ever wanted to use a stylus with a Galaxy S series device, you can now do so on the S21 Ultra. Samsung extended support for the S-Pen to the smartphone this year which means you can use the stylus for doing things you would do on a Galaxy Note device. Having said that, you will need to purchase the stylus separately and a cover as well if you don’t want to lose the stylus and have it with the smartphone at all times. We do have to mention that the phone does not support exclusive S Pen features such as using the button for controlling apps like camera, YouTube or other applications. 3. Gorgeous Display © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy S21 Ultra has one of the best displays we’ve ever seen on a smartphone. The colour calibration of the panel makes the display on the Galaxy S21 Ultra superior to any smartphone out there, even better than the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The display also supports HDR10+ content on OTT apps which makes the viewing experience one of the best we’ve ever encountered. Additionally, the display also supports adaptive refresh rate which means the smartphone can go up to 120Hz refresh rate when needed or drop it as low as 48Hz in order to conserve battery life. The Galaxy S21 Ultra now also supports higher refresh rate on QHD+ resolution, however it does sacrifice a bit of the battery life in return. 4. Cameras © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Galaxy S21 Ultra has one of the most versatile camera systems where it has been outfitted with a 12MP wide-angle camera, a 108MP main sensor with OIS, a 10MP 3x optical telephoto sensor with OIS, and a 10MP 10x optical telephoto sensor. The cameras are capable of capturing highly detailed images with the primary sensor and work especially well with features like ‘Single Take’. The smartphone is also capable of 10x optical zoom and shakes far less when zoomed as compared to its predecessor. Night Mode works fairly well and beats most of the other Android devices with ease as well. 5. Performance © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Indian variant of the Galaxy S21 Ultra is powered by the Exynos 2100 chipset and this time around, the SoC is as powerful as other flagship chipsets if not better. Samsung has really worked hard to get their silicon on the same level as the competition and so far, the performance looks impressive. We did not experience any throttling or overheating issues with this smartphone and it worked like a charm with demanding games. In fact, the Exynos 2100 may just be the best chipset Samsung has ever made and it reflects in the overall experience. View the full article

Back 4 Blood is a four-versus-horde shooter and it's very similar to the Left 4 Dead games. We're really excited to play this one mainly because we think it's going to be just as thrilling to play as Left 4 Dead. Back 4 Blood is bound for PlayStation and Xbox consoles, as well as PC in June this year. Deathloop Deathloop is being made by the same folks who worked on the Dishonoured series. It's an action game about an assassin who's stuck in a time loop. He has to take out 8 targets before the time loop resets. But there's another agent named Julianna after him, so we know it's not going to be easy. In the multiplayer mode of the game, players will be able to take the role of Julianna and run after Colt. Deathloop is slated to come out this year on PC as well as the PS5. Dying Light 2 Dying Light 2 has been one of the most anticipated games and we're glad that it's finally coming out this year. It's going to refine the original game's first-person parkour action gameplay to make it better than ever. We can't wait to experience the game's city-based location and engage with zombies. The game is expected to come out in the first half of 2021 for PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. Ghostwire: Tokyo View the full article
  14. Nvidia is doing some really cool things with its Reflex technology. It was introduced last September. But in order to take advantage of this Reflex tech, you'll need certain hardware and software to work in harmony. One way to take advantage of the tech is using a supported gaming mouse. Obviously not all gaming mouses are going to work Nvidia's Reflex tech and that's exactly why the company has listed a bunch of supported mouses. For now, the list is small, but it's only going to grow and we'll start seeing more and more offerings in the future. © YouTube/Techvania In addition to the mouses, you can also get Reflex supported gaming monitors. And to use the tech, you'll need a supported GPU as well. Everything from the GeForce 900-series (Maxwell) onwards has you covered, so that shouldn't be an issue. Outside of the benchmarks though, the Reflex technology isn't going to majorly help you in any way, at least not in all video games. Yes, you'll get a better understanding of latency and even cut down some of that. But it can make a huge difference in older mainstream cards. It's indeed a promising technology and we expect it to get better over time. Combine Nvidia's Reflex tech with a good gaming monitor and a gaming mouse, and you might land a few more clutch shots.

  15. It's not just our B-towners who have a massive collection of sneakers but if you leave it up to some TV actors as well, they will show you some uber-cool collectables too. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani We have stars like Karan Tacker, Maniesh Paul, Prince Narula etc. who have stirred the fashion landscape with their sneakers. However, if there's one celebrity who beats them all, not just with his sneakers but also his style sense, has to be Jay Bhanusali. © Viral Bhayani Jay has established himself to be a great actor in the Television world. When it comes to his style statement, he makes it pretty relatable. He keeps it understated and yet knows how to stand out. This recent instance too, is a perfect example of that. © Viral Bhayani While his outfit looked laid-back and casual, his sneakers, on the other hand, caught our attention stat. Take a look: © Puma These sneakers that Jay is wearing are by Puma and are called X-ray sneakers. These are a vintage style pair, with the best athletic technology by the brand. The chunky silhouette and the oversized elements make for a perfect style for all the vintage enthusiasts. That, with injection-moulded EVA midsole, helps one stride comfortably. © Puma If we talk about the price of these sneakers, the good news is that these won't burn a big hole in our pockets too. These cost only Rs 3,000 right now and in fact, many celebrities are seen wearing this pair. © Viral Bhayani Coming to his outfit, the subtle white T-shirt with the branding of Pepe Jeans, looks stylish. The denim here totally made him score brownie points, for the way he has styled this ensemble. That, with a black mask, embroidered with a yellow danger sign, blends well with the aesthetics of this look. In all, we are taking notes from your sartorial style, Jay. View the full article
  16. With more people looking to ditch WhatsApp and switch to other messaging apps, Signal and Telegram have the ones that have stood out. We already did a story on all the WhatsApp features that are already on Signal. Now, we'll be checking out some of the Telegram features that'll make you want to ditch WhatsApp for it immediately. Multiple Number While WhatsApp users can only have one number for WhatsApp on one device, Telegram users can add up to 3 numbers on the same device. This is a handy feature for those using a dual SIM phone with two different numbers on the same device. © Reuters Scheduled Messages This feature is pretty self-explanatory. Well, Telegram lets you schedule messages on its app and we think WhatsApp should add this feature soon as well. Imagine not having to worry about being on time to, say, wish someone a 'Happy Birthday' at night. You can just schedule it. Sharing Files Up to 1.5GB Currently, on WhatsApp, you can't send a file that's larger than 100MB. But Telegram users, on the other hand, can share files as big as 1.5GB. This is an extremely useful feature and we think WhatsApp should definitely increase the file size cap. © Reuters Hide Phone Number This is perhaps one of our favorite Telegram features. Being able to hide phone numbers from other people ensures that we don't end up sharing our numbers with random users. It'd be awesome if WhatsApp adds an ability to use usernames instead of phone numbers. But for now, it looks like we'll have to stick to Telegram. In addition to the ones mentioned above, we're sure there are some other features that you might like on Telegram. Be sure to let us know by dropping a line. View the full article
  17. CCTV cameras have become an extremely important piece of hardware, especially in the digital age we are living in right now. Be it on the streets, offices, stores, or even your homes, CCTV cameras are everywhere. If you don't have one at your place, then we highly recommend you get one. © Unsplash According to a new report, Chennai is said to have the most number CCTVs in the world. SurfShark's report has revealed that Chennai has the most number of CCTVs per square kilometre in the world. They looked at the world's 130 most populated cities and analyzed which one of them has the densest CCTV networks. © Unsplash What's more interesting is that the second city on the list is yet another South Indian city - Hyderabad. Hyderabad is said to have 480 CCTVs per square kilometre, which is not bad compared to 657 CCTVs per square kilometre in Chennai. China’s city of Harbin with 411 CCTVs per square kilometres took third place, whereas London in the UK with 399 CCTVs took fourth place. New Delhi managed to get on the top 10 list. With 289 CCTVs per square kilometre, New Delhi managed to get 8th. © Unsplash The top 10 list is populated mostly by China. 6 out of 10 spots are taken by Chinese cities which isn't surprising considering the fact that the country has a huge population. China's Beijing is said to have 1.1 million CCTV cameras, which is an insane number. Source: Surfshark View the full article

  19. 2020 has come to an end and usually, we kick off the year with what we can expect in the world of technology for the next year. There have been numerous new gadgets that are expected to launch in 2021 including new gaming consoles, concept smartphones, smartwatches and other unexpected devices. Here are all of the coolest gadgets we can look forward to in 2021: 1. Apple AirTags © Twitter/GunHo Lee So far, Apple has announced quite a few rumoured products such as the smaller HomePod, AirPods Max and the M1 Macbooks. However, it has been long rumoured for Apple to launch its tracking devices that work similarly to the Tile trackers. However, in this case, the devices will use a U1 chip for more accurate tracking and will be integrated with the ‘Find My’ app. We can expect Apple to launch the tracking devices sometime in 2021 alongside the next iPhone or even sooner. 2. Nintendo Switch Pro © Youtube/TheGamer We’ve already heard the rumours of Nintendo working on a new Nintendo Switch that will come with upgraded hardware and a better design. The upcoming Switch Pro is expected to have a larger screen with smaller bezels, a new Tegra chip by Nvidia that will upscale content to 4K and use DLSS for better frames and better battery life. There are also rumours of the next Nintendo Switch to be a bit more ergonomic than the current generation. Nintendo has already asked plenty of developers and publishers to upscale their games available on the eShop to 4K which is a good indication of the upcoming upgraded console. 3. OnePlus Smartwatch © Youtube/TechyImran OnePlus users have been asking for a wearable device for a while now and the company has finally confirmed that it is working on one. The smartwatch is expected to launch sometime in 2021 possibly alongside the OnePlus 9. While not much is known about how the smartwatch will work but rumours suggest it will use Google’s WearOS platform. It would be interesting to see what the smartwatch looks like as the company’s sister company OPPO unveiled its smartwatch in 2020 that looks an awful lot like the Apple Watch. 4. SprayCare Band © SprayCare The SprayCare Band is one of the coolest gadgets to launch in 2021 that is logical and convenient to use. It essentially works similar to Spider-Man’s web-shooting device where it is attached to your wrist and shoots sanitiser on objects. It can also be used to spray essential oils and perfume from its reusable canister. View the full article
  20. Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan’s Coolie No 1 has received backlash from all corners. The film is the 45th directorial venture of David Dhawan who also helmed the original, which featured Govinda, Karisma Kapoor, and Kader Khan in the lead roles. Just after the release, it became the target of memes who had issues with scenes in the movie that had no logical explanation. In one of the scenes, Varun Dhawan is seen running atop a moving train and jumping off it in the nick of time to save a child. This scene was trolled mercilessly by people and nothing has impressed the audience, be it acting or the plot. They felt Sara and Varun are trying to imitate Karisma and Govinda which completely backfired. The film has only been rated 1.4 on IMDb, which is even lower than the worst-rated IMDB Bollywood movies of all time. © IMDB Here are the movies that rank higher than Coolie No 1 but were dissed by the audience: 1. Welcome To New York © IMDB Sonakshi Sinha and Diljit Dosanjh’s movie was ridiculed for being a flat satire on Bollywood’s ways and award ceremonies. People didn’t like the movie and termed it to be not worth one’s money and time. 2. Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag © IMDB We have grown up listening to how people have hated this particular movie. People called it a bad spoof of a cult movie Sholay and it didn’t work out in RGV's favour. In an interview, RGV took a dig at his own movie and said, “one thing about Aag that makes me happy is that the film did manage to provide mass entertainment if only in ripping it apart.” 3. Himmatwala And Humshakals © IMDB The remake of Jeetendra starrer 1983 release Himmatwala starring Ajay Devgn was termed as a painful watch. From the dialogues to the story, people bashed every aspect of the movie mercilessly. © IMDB Humshakals also was seen in the same light as people called it a worthless comedy as it had no humour and was hiding behind nine popular names who too couldn’t elevate the poorly written story. 4. Prem Aggan © IMDB If you have been a fan of Pretentious Movie Reviews, you might recall their review of this Fardeen Khan movie. The movie had so many sexual innuendos that calling it cringey would be an understatement. 5. Race 3 © IMDB With awful performances, this Salman Khan film was bashed by both the critics and viewers alike. The movie is so bad that it has been rated as the worst film of all time. Have you watched these movies? Let us know in the comments section below. View the full article
  21. 2020 was not the year that humanity will remember, as a lot went wrong, but video games did make it easier to get on with your life when you were stuck inside. Video games were probably the most important medium of entertainment this year as it encouraged people to interact with each other, curb mental illness and simply have a great time when you can’t do anything else. We decided to narrow down some of the best games of 2020 that everyone should experience at least once in their life: 1. Final Fantasy VII Remake © Square Enix Final Fantasy VII Remake will go down as one of the best RPGs ever made and the game has managed to rake in awards for its beautiful visuals and addicting gameplay. With great characters, a compelling story, incredible music and engaging battle systems, Final Fantasy VII Remake is one of the best games of this decade let alone 2020. There’s a sequel coming for this instalment as well however we recommend playing the remake if you haven't played already. If you want to know more about the game, read our full review here. 2. Ghost of Tsushima © Sucker Punch Productions, Sony Interactive Entertainment Ghost of Tsushima is a brand new franchise by Sony Interactive Entertainment that has dominated charts ever since it was released. The game features stunning landscapes, a beautiful soundtrack and one of the most polished combat systems we’ve ever seen in a game. You play as Jin Sakai who is a samurai on a quest to protect the island of Tsushima during the first Mongol invasion of Japan. The highlight of the game is its one-on-one sword fighting duels that are backed with epic music and presented in the style of Akira Kurosawa movies. If you want to know more about Ghost of Tsushima, read our full review here. 3. Hades © Supergiant Games Supergiant games are known for making great Indie titles and ‘Hades’ is no exception. It’s one of the best roguelike action role-playing games you will play this generation with beautiful environments and gameplay that you cannot put down once you start. Hades was one of the biggest sleeper hits of the year that nobody expected. 4. The Last of Us Part II © Naughty Dog Hate or love it, TLOU part 2 is one of those ground-breaking games that people will remember for a long time. If you’ve ever wondered whether games can ever give movies a run for its money, look no further than Naughty Dog’s TLOU Part 2. Gameplay is far more refined from the first game and it tells a painfully beautiful story that shows both sides of the coin. It challenges the usual tropes of video game story-telling and at the same time make you feel emotional with a compelling story. If you haven’t played the game, check out our spoiler-free review here. 5. Spider-Man Miles Morales © MensXP, Sony Interactive Entertainment Spider-Man Miles Morales is yet another Sony PlayStation exclusive that you need to play. The sequel tells the story of Miles Morales and shows how he struggles with his newfound powers. He has a deep connection with his Harlem neighbourhood and does everything in his power to help the city while Peter Parker is away on vacation. In our review,we called it ‘an incredible extension of the first game even on the PlayStation 4. The game shows off finer details such as Miles’ characteristics effortlessly and adds new layers to the combat system.’ If you want to know more about Spider-Man: Miles Morales, check out our full review here 6. Yakuza Like a Dragon © Sega Yakuza Like a Dragon is an excellent crime-based RPG that SEGA has released since Yakuza 0. The developers also change a few things this time around by adopting a turn-based combat system instead of the usual Beat 'em up style. This instalment introduces a new protagonist Ichiban Kasuga and is mostly set in the city of Yokohama. With a new setting and a different style of story-telling, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is a must-play entry from the franchise. To know more about Yakuza Like a Dragon, check out our full review here.

  22. As 2020 comes to a close, we have to say it out loud, that Kunal Kemmu showed us some of the best sneakers from his collection. That's not it, some were so flashy that even sneakerheads would have turned green-eyed looking at them. © Viral Bhayani This time too, when he was spotted with his wife Soha Ali Khan, Kunal took his look to bold new heights with his vibrant pair of sneakers. These sneakers are so flamboyant and OTT that we couldn't stop gazing at Kunal's choice. Here's why we say that. © Balenciaga © Viral Bhayani For someone who is a fan of chunky and extravagant pairs, can copy this style from the original website for $950 which converts to approximately Rs 72,000. Mind you, this doesn't include your regular customs and import duties. View the full article
  23. Words fall short to describe how the year 2020 has treated us all. With the stretch of unfortunate events kicking off in this year, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that 2020 has been cruel to the entire world, including the entertainment industry.

  24. Smartwatches have seen a boom in India and around the world for several purposes such as fitness, managing notifications and using it for payments as well. Smartwatches are no longer the bulky devices on your wrist with very limited functionality. Today, smartwatches are elegant, powerful and can do much more than just being a digital calculator. Here are the best smartwatches that are available to buy in India right now: 1. Apple Watch Series 6 © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Apple Watch Series 6 is the latest smartwatch by Apple that has been reigning the top smartwatches' list ever since the first iteration was launched. The new Apple Watch has the ability to track SPO2, heart rate, GPS and exercises. Apart from being a great fitness accessory, the Apple Watch has other nifty features such as fall detection, music streaming over LTE, ECG tracking and other health features that have saved countless lives in the past. If you are an iPhone user and want the best of the best, it doesn’t get better than the Apple Watch. 2. Galaxy Watch 3 © Youtube_Shane Symonds If you are an Android user, you really can’t go wrong with Samsung’s offering that does almost everything the Apple Watch can. It is by far the most intuitive and reliable Android smartwatch you can use in 2020. It uses Samsung’s Wizen operating system which is far easier to use than Google’s Wear OS. The smartwatch also has the ECG function, heart rate tracking and sleep monitoring. The smartwatch can also read SpO2 (blood oxygen saturation levels) and VO2 max (oxygen consumption during exercise). It is by far the only alternative to the Apple Watch that packs all the features you need from a fitness and health tracker. 3. Fitbit Versa 3 © Fitbit If you are looking for a reliable accessory for your Android smartphone that does not cost as much, the Fitbit Versa 3 is a great smartwatch to consider. It can last for an entire week on a single charge even with its always-on AMOLED display. The smartwatch is best for fitness enthusiasts who want something more flexible than the Apple Watch. It can track 20 different activities and can detect exercises automatically as well. The Fitbit is also a bit more accurate at counting steps with its ‘Active Zone Minutes’ feature where it only tracks steps when doing physical activity. 4. Amazfit Bip © Youtube_Nathan Kontny Not all smartwatches need to cost a lot of money as Amazfit has demonstrated with the ‘Bip’. It’s a budget-friendly smartwatch that works with both iOS and Android devices. The smartwatch comes with GPS and heart rate tracking as well which was quite unexpected in a watch that costs less than Rs 5,000. The smartwatch also comes with a transflective colour display that is easier to use and does not drain the battery. It can work for 45 days on a single charge and is one of the longest-lasting smartwatches out there. 5. Mi Watch Revolve © Xiaomi Xiaomi’s first smartwatch is probably the most feature-packed affordable smartwatch on this list. It also uses a very elegant design which can go well with all types of outfits. It has all the usual tracking functions and performs better than what we expected. The smartwatch can last up to 14 days on a single charge and can be customised with up to 110 watch faces. View the full article
