PTron BassBuds vs BassBuds Pro vs BassBuds Lite | Which one should you get?

Image
I checked out all three of PTron's latest range truly wireless earbuds named as the BassBuds series.

Despite all of them being under 2000 INR, there are some key differences between the three which I think many of you would be interested to learn about.



So, here is a brief comparison between the Bassbuds, Bassbuds Pro, and the BassBuds Lite.

Build and Design: Though the three are very similarly priced, there are significant changes in their design. 
The BassBuds Liteare like the cheap version of the Realme Buds aka Realme's version of Apple Airpods.


Consumer tech is becoming a lot like Bollywood now. It all seems pretty good on the surface, but nobody can come up with anything original anymore.


Anyway, the Bassbuds Lite are not only one of the cheapest truly wireless earbuds in the market, but they're also, by far, the cheapest feeling ones.
The Build quality is so bad it's almost inexcusable. The plastic case is glossy and gross-looking. I know that it isn't sup…

Andy Rubin's Billion Dollar Smartphone Company, Essential, Shuts Down

Image
Everybody was pretty hyped when The father of Android Started a venture to make one of a kind consumer electronics products under the brand name Essential.
The company's first phone, the Essential PH-1 made quite a lot of headlines for its unique design and the cyclops-notch design, which was one of the early designs of modern notches.

However, the phone only managed to sell about 100,000 units in the first year and the future sales did not seem to catch on with the mainstream consumer market as they hoped.

They were in the news once again in recent times for unveiling a new kind of phone they were testing out names the Project Gem.

But sadly, they seem to have hit way too many roadblocks in their journey and they revealed that they will be ceasing all operations in their latest blog post.
" Our vision was to invent a mobile computing paradigm that more seamlessly integrated with people’s lifestyle needs. Despite our best efforts, we’ve now taken Gem as far as we can and regr…

Swiggy's New Browser Extension Replaces Cuss Words with Tasty Dishes | What The Falooda!

Image
I don't need to tell you that the internet and social media can be pretty nasty sometimes. There are of course content moderators in place but they cannot possibly rectify everything from their side.

Some people are just straight up just but others say root things only out of frustration or because they are upset. They usually feel bad about it later when asked.


So to avoid hurting someone's feelings unintentionally in the spur of the moment, Swiggy has come up with the initiative to replace offensive words with food.

They have come up with an extension for your browser which works similar to any other sentence moderation tool like Grammarly.

Forgive the 'Falooda' Ups!

Whenever it detects that you are typing or have already type something that could potentially hurt someone's feelings, it suggests alternative words for it which instantly convert the sentence from offensive to delicious humor.

I highly recommend that you check out this project of theirs and instal…

Image
We've all been there, haven't we? We hook up our headphones, grab some snacks, and fire up YouTube to watch some stuff.

The video page opens up, but the never-ending "loading" swirl doesn't seem to end.

The frustration sounds familiar, doesn't it? Well, there are a few things you could try before losing your head in anger.

So here are 10 things to try when a YouTube video loads up but doesn't play.

1. Clear the browser/app cache

PTron Boom 3 VS Realme Buds 2: A Non-Basshead's Perspective

Image
The budget bass-boosted earphone market is filled with some incredible choices for the price. It's only natural that you would lose sleep deciding which one to get for your buck.

One such question seems to be around two particular earphones offering some top quality sound under 600 INR; the PTron Boom 3 and the Realme Buds 2.

And since at least one of you have this question in your mind (because I literally got one comment asking me to do this), here's my comparison between the two.

Build and Design: Right off the bat, from the unboxing, I noticed the superior quality of the Realme buds. The Boom 3 just feels plasticky and hollow, maybe because they are indeed plasticky and hollow.
The realme buds have a nylon braided cable, solid magnetic earbuds and a much more solid volume/microphone pod. Boom 3's feel like a toy in comparison.
Then there are the functional differences, like the PTrons having one of those volume sliders which have their own amp, whereas the Realme Buds…
