microsoft-surface-pro

Microsoft is quite clear on its decision of not introducing Surface devices in India, instead the company has taken assistance from local companies like Notion Ink and Micromax to produce 2-in-1 ‘Surface’ like affordable devices. These similar yet low-quality devices have been introduced in India, but conscious tablet consumers in the country want Microsoft to think again about its decision.

Micromax Yu Yuphoria: 6 Reasons Why it May Repeat Yu Yureka’s Success?

Micromax has picked its collaboration right with Yu and that was for all to see with the Yureka smartphone—its maiden launch in this domain. After success in online sales still going strong on Amazon India, Yu will release its next phone—Yuphoria on Tuesday.  The maker has hit bull’s eye with pricing of INR 8999 only; the Yureka takes processing and multitasking seriously with its octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC. What might be a brownie point for sales is the 2 GB RAM and 16 GB onboard storage. Prodding into the viral leaks and videos further, fans can expect a classy physical build that also enhances the smartphone’s sturdiness. On a 5-incher screen size, Yuphoria promises 1080p display as well. The metal design might be off-track at this price, but we are expecting a smart polycarbonate look. Adverts are pointing to amazing sound quality—plausibly of DTS or Dolby grade on the [+more]

Microsoft Lumia 532 Dual SIM Review: Up Against the Android Army

Microsoft Lumia 532 Dual SIM Review

Microsoft Lumia 532 Dual SIM is one effort from the maker to swash away competition in the budget smartphone segment. With a pocketable price and value for money specs, the Lumia 532 Dual SIM looks like it can deliver performance with its matte look combined with glossed up sides. However, the pointed corners and the plasticy feel is depressing at a time when design is as essential for appeal as a device’s entrails. The 4 incher screen size clubbed with a below average 480×800-pixel resolution makes the Lumia 532 Dual SIM outdated. The angle views, screen colors and image feel are simply non-impressive when compared to what we get even in a newbie maker such as Xiaomi. Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 with 1.2GHz Cortex-A7 core barely helps to add zing to the phone’s speed. 1 GB RAM again is a compromised choice as is the Adreno 302 graphics. GB onboard storage is [+more]

xiaomi miui screenshot

The Chinese giant Xiaomi has caused more than a stir in Indian terrain with the Mi 4i. The MIUI 6 interface overlapping Android 5.0 Lollipop has been a talking point for initial buyers but we figured that the latest ware from China’s Apple has a lot more to offer in this context. Besides the superb visuals on screen, the grand gesture responses and the amazing fonts styles, what got us hooked here was ability to add a fresh home screen to accommodate your phone widgets in a less clustered way. Not that we have not seen this is the Note Series from Samsung or the LG L series previously. However, coming from a budget maker like Xiaomi, this is a surprise. Further, ease comes with ability for allowing root access for all apps on the Mi 4i. Perhaps the best part of the MIUI 6 security app is how it [+more]
