[Smartphones] | Xiaomi Black Shark Helo : The Successor with RGB Lights!

Image
As techtober rolls on, we get to see more and more incredible smartphones released on a daily basis! The rate at which these phones are getting launched is absolutely too fast for a single person who manages a small tech blog like me. But that doesn't mean that I am not willing to lose my sleep over it! Better late than never, right?

Here's everything you need to know about the brand new Xiaomi Black Shark Helo, the successor to the original Black Shark gaming phone.


Apparently 6 and 8GB of RAM is not enough for the tech junkies of the 2018. So, this is the only other phone in the market as of now which has a whopping 10 GB RAM variant, other than the Mi Mix 3. It's amazing how a manufacturer well known for making mid range phones can bring two smartphones with insane spec sheets in the same year, isn't it? That's Xiaomi for you, I suppose!

Anyway, the Black Shark Helo has quite similar design aesthetics as that of the original Black Shark smartphone.

These are ther…

[Smartphones] | OnePlus 6T : Everything you need to know

The much awaited OnePlus 6T is finally here. I planned on streaming the entire live event but totally forgot about it at 8:30 p.m. today. My bad! Anyway, I'm not stalling any further. Let's get straight into the new OnePlus 6T and everything that's different about it compared to the OnePlus 6.

1. New fingerprint sensor technology


The 6T ditches the traditional capacitive fingerprint sensor which is on the back of the OnePlus 6 and instant apps for an optical sensor under the display. Though this sensor is a lot more futuristic and cool to look at, it takes a bit longer to recognize your fingerprint and unlock the device.

This means that you are losing one of the most prominent features of OnePlus phones, their lightning-fast fingerprint sensor. It's not a total loss though, because their blazing fast Face unlock a still here.

2. Still has a notch but a smaller one this time

Just like the Vivo V11 Pro and the Oppo F9 Pro, OnePlus 6t incorporate the dewdrop or water drop …

[Smartphones] | Mi Mix 3 : A Sliding Successor!

It's needless to say that Xiaomi has been ruling the smartphone market here in India since the past 2 years or so. Even though I have recommended a bunch of their devices to others, I never considered buying one for myself because they're all mid-range smartphones. Don't get me wrong, they're still great phones. Why else would I recommend them in the first place? But me, I am a flagship lover.


I've always liked premium phones because of the attention to detail and the overall premiumness that they have to offer. Call me crazy, but I'm willing to spend 3 times as much for those minor added benefits. And I'm not alone in that mentality.

But apart from their best selling mid rangers, Xiaomi does have some really great flagships. The mi 8 for one, is an incredible device in my opinion. I'm still waiting for the Explorer edition to be launched in my local market so I can take a closer look at it.

But the phone that we're going to talk about right now is…

[Smartphones] | Honor Play | The Best gaming phone to buy right now!

Image
Back when Huawei released the Honor Play at a very aggressive price tag, it was covered to oblivion by just about every single tech publication out there. So naturally, I thought I'll sit this one out. But in light of recent Amazon offers, this smartphone has ridiculously dropped its price.

Since it has only been 3 months since its launch and with this new attractive price tag, I thought we might as well be taking a second look at the Huawei Honor Play smartphone. So, let's just do it.


My first impressions when I held the phone were 'damn, this thing is compact'! It could be because I, being a Galaxy Note user, am used to a huge display. But the Honor Play has pretty much the same display size (6.3") as my Galaxy Note 8. Yet, it feels more comfortable hold in the hand. This once again proves my point that not all displays are made the same.


That display is a bright, vibrant FHD+ (2360x1080) IPS LCD panel. It's the standard tall aspect ratio which we have all…
