Plextone G30 Review : An earphone with an external mic!

Image
I recently came across a post on Facebook regarding a new kind of gaming headset by a company called Plextone. It was a wired, in-ear style headphone with an external mic attached to the left earpod. I dropped a message to the guys who posted it and ask if I could check it out.

Sure enough... here is my hands-on review of the Plextone G30dual microphone gaming headset after using it for 8 days.

Unboxing and Impressions:
I was initially pretty impressed with the packaging, but I ended up ripping it open, because I couldn't figure out how to properly unbox the thing. But whatever, what are you interested in? The box, or the earphones? My point exactly, let's move on!

When I first laid my eyes on the headphone itself, my first thought was " this thing is a lot bigger than I expected". That's what she said too (not really).



Taking the headphone out of the box, I was pleased with the build quality. Even though the entire thing was made out of different varieties of …

Redmi Note 6 Pro Review : Everything that's New

Image
Xioami has launched a successor to their ultra popular Redmi Note 5 Pro. I got a hands on with the Note 6 Pro and compared it to the Note 5 Pro for a while. The purpose of this article is to determine whether the Redmi Note 6 Pro is a worthy upgrade over the Note 5 Pro. So let's get on with it then, shall we? Build quality and Design: Right off the bat, I could tell that the Redmi Note 6 Pro is thicker than its predecessor. It's mainly because of the display which has been raised a bit higher from the frame than the Note 5 Pro. The two are nearly indistinguishable in terms of weight, but I feel the Note 5 Pro is a tad bit heavier.



The metal back used for the Note 6 Pro is slightly different than the one on its predecessor. It catches fingerprints and smudges a lot more. Also, it was making squeaking noise when it was first unboxed because some hinge inside it was loose. We had to forcefully push it down until it clicked itself in.

That is not very encouraging, because the Red…

ZenBeats X7 Review : A bluetooth speaker that works better wired

Image
I've always wanted a Bluetooth speaker for myself because sometimes, I feel like blasting music when I am out and about. A lot of us use our smartphones for it, but you might know that I use a Galaxy Note 8, and the loudspeaker isn't the note 8's stand out feature.


Recently, a company called as ZenBeats reached out to me and offered a review unit of their X7 Bluetooth speaker. Needless to say, I was hyped! I replied to their Facebook message and got it delivered to me.

It has been about Four days since I've been using the speaker, and I think I'm ready to give you my final thoughts on it. So, here is my full review of the ZenBeats X7 Bluetooth speaker.

Unboxing and impressions:


Unboxing experience of this product was, frankly, great. The box was properly sealed and the top cover was snugly fit on to the package. Along with a micro USB cable for charging, they have also included a short aux cable, which is a nice touch in my opinion.
These are the specifications of…

[Smartphones] | Samsung Galaxy J2 2018 : Have Low-end Phones Gotten Any Better?

Image
We all have our personal preferences when it comes to smartphones. Some of us like high end flagships while most others prefer affordable mid range devices. As time goes on and phones get cheaper, the population who want to go for a low end device gets thinner. But that doesn't mean some low end devices do not exist in the market anymore.

Technically, the low end devices are now the new mid rangers and current mid rangers are called upper-mid ranges for some reason. It could be because the budget CPUs are getting so good that the gap between the two is getting narrower.



I have checked out a lot of mid rangers during my time and a good number of flagships too. But this time, I decided to look at one of the popular low end (low-budget) phones in the market. The Samsung Galaxy J2 of 2018 happens to be one such phone.

I came across this device while searching for an affordable phone for my dad, who totally refuses to go for anything higher than 8000 Rs (about 120 USD). After getting…
