      Samsung Galaxy S4: Looks Impressive With New Price

      Thursday, February 26th, 2015 Amritesh no responses

      Samsung recently slashed the price for their 2013 flagship device. It is now available on e-retail stores at Rs 17,999/- ($ 290) approx. The phone does look as an interesting buy at this price. But as far as Samsung’s marketing strategy is concerned it seems pretty weird in my opinion. On one hand they are slashing down the prices of some their premium predecessor devices while launching new devices powered by low specs but with premium price tag. If one decks up the newly launched Samsung phones against Galaxy S4 you can’t help feeling that this older generation phone will come out as a winner.It can also be that Samsung is trying to expand its market reach by lowering the…

      Samsung Galaxy A3 (Metallic Body): My Views

      Saturday, February 21st, 2015 Amritesh 5 responses

      Samsung launched their Galaxy A Series Smartphones few weeks back which in my opinion boasts of mediocre specifications but comes with premium price tag. These phones have metallic unibody design which is a welcome change from the stables of Samsung. The Galaxy A3 phone has been launched with a price tag of around Rs 20,000/- ($ 320) approx.The phone does look as a major improvement over the previous generation of Samsung phones in terms of build and design but apart from the metal unibody design, the hardware specs are pretty modest for the price. The device is pretty thin at 6.9mm and weighs just 110 gms.It does sport the latest Snapdragon 410 chipset and GPU is also the latest Adreno…

      Samsung S3 Neo: Old Device But New Price

      Thursday, January 29th, 2015 Amritesh no responses

      Samsung recently slashed the price of Galaxy S3 Neo. The specifications on this phone really make it an attractive buy at this new price. I won’t do a full review of this device as it is a pretty old device by Smartphone Industry standards. It was launched early last year but with a very high price tag of around Rs 25,000/- ($ 400 approx) at that point of time. I strongly feel the present price of Rs12,499 ($ 200 approx) available on Flipkart is pretty much acceptable in present market and specifications on this phone justify the new price.Now let’s look at the reasons to buy this phone:-Samsung Branding: For brand conscious people one of the most important reasons to…

      Battery Calibration and Optimization

      Friday, January 23rd, 2015 Amritesh no responses

      One of the biggest concerns for Smartphone users these days is the battery life they get on their device. Most of the Smartphones struggle to last through the day on a single charge. Even the most battery efficient phone struggles to provide more than 4 hours of Screen time with 2G network enabled. It is a well known fact that Android, IOS and Windows devices tend to drain the battery pretty fast. This is due the various applications and games installed on the device apart from the fact that 2G/3G or WiFi network remains active on the phone for most of the time.However, if you apply few tricks then you may just improve the battery life of your device.Battery CalibrationBattery…

      Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G: My Views

      Sunday, January 11th, 2015 Amritesh 2 responses

      Xiaomi has enjoyed enormous success ever since its entry in the Smartphone market and is now the 3rdlargest smartphone vendor after Samsung and Apple. The reason behind the success not only lies in the fact that they manufacture some impressive phones but also the innovative style of selling along with competitive the pricing of the devices adopted by Xiaomi.In India they did very well with the launch of Mi and Redmi1s which sold like hot cakes. Last month they had launched the Redmi Note 3G variant which was impressive but had some flaws too. Note 3G came with the outdated Android Jellybean OS. Also the Mediatek Processor and Mali GPU used on Note 3G performed decently for most part but…

      Dual, Quad And Octa Processor: Need Or Marketing Myth

      Wednesday, January 7th, 2015 Amritesh no responses

      Smartphone is a segment were technology changes pretty fast and almost every month you will find new launches with some innovative features and improved hardware specifications. Not very long ago, Dual Core was exclusively for Flagship devices but currently we find them mostly in entry level phones. Even Quad Core Processors are seen on Budget and Midrange devices these days. Now we find Octa Core processors being used in some of the devices.But with this the question which arises is do we really need such powerful processors in our daily usage.In my opinion the Quad Core and Octa Core are definitely powerful processors but for smooth functioning of any device that’s not all. Any phone needs to be backed by…
