Well as per recent surveys: Android market is dominated by 5.5 inches screen size. There are very few models available blow this standard size and some are even growing larger. Mi have Mi Max and Lenovo have Lenovo Phab 2 Plus which are some devices going above 5.5 inches screen size. Now Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra is another contender in this category. Let’s have a look at the various aspects of it :

The first thing that you notice after looking at this smartphone is it's size. Because this device have 6.8 inches large screen which is obliviously not easy to handle.

Not only this but fitting this device in your pocket is another issue by itself, you need a handbag or backpack if you want to carry it along with you.


In terms of build quality Asus has done an amazing job. Look of the device is also premium. Phone is flat from both the sides and have curved edges surrounded with metal band.

Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra Specification And Performance:

If we compared to screen resolution with screen size the combination looks bit unusual since 6.8 inches with 1080 X 1920 pixels. This device is best for enjoying Full HD video and movies. But how Asus has managed to sustain such sound and crisp visual display that produce vivid colors on it, really good job by Asus. The device which we received have 4 GB RAM memory and 64 GB internal out of which 53 GB is user available. You can also expand the external storage using memory card up-to 200 GB and additionally as we get 100 GB of Google drive free space for 2 years.

Well on the battery front. I must say Asus has done some extraordinary work for battery performance. Even with our heavy usage we are able to use this device till one and half days until battery turns out to be Zero. Asus have equipped the device with 4600 mAh battery juice. Well overall we have faced only one glitch while using this device that this device do get heatup while charging which is usual case with Asus fast charging. It will take around 2 Hours to charge the device completely from Zero to Hundred percent.

Price:

Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra available on Flipkart online with price tag of 49, 990/- which is considered as bit high as compared to configuration. We can say mid range configuration at flagship price.

Verdict:

Asus has packed some good configuration in Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra. This device's major focus is on good quality display and better battery life. If you need some tablet type big screen phone with SIM carrier data usage then this is best bet for you in class. Not only this it provide excellent camera performance and best sound output in speakers as well in earphones. Only thing that bother you is price of the device that is much over price at this time.

Honor 6X Review : Dual Lense Camera Device

00:16 Add Comment
Recently Dual lense camera setting has become the trend in smartphone world. After success of Honor 5 and Honor 8 now Honor has launched dual camera setup device called Honor 6X here we are going to review this device and share our experience with you guys. So let's get started.

If we talk about Honor 6X according to the price range it have solid contenders in the market to compete with like Moto 4G and strong contender like Redmi Note 4. Here I will discusss about various aspects of Honor 6X offer. Let's get start with it.


Design and Build :

Honor 6X seems to be design very well and slip and have premium finish. Metal unibody case with stylish curve make appearance of the device attractive and unique. But device grip also differ with you  way of handling it. Device can easily slip out of your hands and curs are nice for look but for grip doesn't help much. Especially people having sweat problem in their hand, I will suggest them to buy one back cover for it.



Honor 6X comes with 5.5 inches of screen having full HD display with good viewing angle, provide good color for user. Text and icon are display and videos playback is very good as well. Color display brightness is adequate for outdoor usage and screen is visible very well to operate the device in direct sunlight.



Honor 6X have Hybrid SIM tray which can accommodate dual SIM cards or one SIM and memory card in second slot. on the right of the device have volume rocker and power button which is standard design we have seen in Honor's devices. Well coming to bottom of the device have Micro USB port for charging the device (bit downside of Honor 6X) along with microphone and mono speakers. On the top of the device it have  mm audio jack and mic.



On the back of the device it have dual camera setup and single tone flash on right of the device. Below camera it have fast and smooth fingerprint sensor followed by Honor log and Huawei branding at the bottom of the back. On the front it have front camera folowed by light ambiant sensor and LED notification. Below the screen panel it have Honor logo.

Honor 6X Specification:

The Honor 6X has SoC developed by Huawei in-house, called the Kirin 655. This octa-core chip processor in four Cortex-A53 CPU cores running at 2.1GHz and four companion Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.7GHz. In terms of graphics, we have a Mali-T830 GPU. This SOC handle the games good enough. This device have rounding off to 57000 which considerably good score looking at the price point. Honor 6X have two variant having 3GB RAM with 32GB ROM and  4GB with 64GB ROM. We have rceived 4GB + 64GB version. 

Device runs on Android 6.0 still now which is bit disappointing since Honor should have release Android 7 for their users. Honoe 6X runs their custom UI called EMUI4.1 on top of Android provide their user with lot of customizations. Notification panel is divided in to 2 tabs notification zone and quick setting or toggle zone. It have single layered interface offer customization from boot animation to themes. The Emergency Services aka SOS menu lets you define a customized text message along with your location coordinates which can be sent to up to three contacts.

Honoe 6X have all the connectivity like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM radio and VoLTE. Device support hybrid SIM support. Device have all the sensor except that of gyroscope and also miss out dual band Wi-Fi ac which is common in devices now a days. Honor 6X also motivate user for their fitness and maintain their diet using inbuilt app that also count footsteps and also synch the data with Google fit app.

Honor 6X comes with lot of pre-installed app but fortunately it allow you to uninstall the third party apps.

Honor 6X Performance and Camera:

When it comes to performance all device said to be packed with good specs but performance in real-time differs a lot. Honor 6X have inbuilt memory optimizer and management software and it work amazingly well what it meant for. Even with their heavy EMUI honor 6X handle heavy games and application effectively without any lags. We have tried NOVA and Dead Effect 2 which are resource consuming games but works fine on device. 

We love the fact that device does not heatup even after heavy gaming and camera usage. The stock music and video players handle media well. The Honor 6X can play 1080p video files and FLAC audio files. You even get an audio enhancement features when you use headphones, although audio quality good in earphone but speaker audio quality need some improvement. Personally speaking play-list setting need lot of improvement in stock music player like play-list music songs are sorted alphabetically. User cannot create their own preferred play-list in stock Honor 6X music player. 

Now coming to camera section of Honor 6X it have dual lenses setup that allow the user to take object focused photos with Bokhe effect. The primary 12 MP sensor accompanied by 2MP  sensor. Primary sensor focused on object while secondary sensor focused on background to provide battery quality pictures. Rear camera perform well under normal light conditions but front as well as front camera drastically disappoint user under low light conditions. 

Below are some sample sample:

Low Light Camera

Auto Mode

Bokeh Effect

Front Camera

Front Camera Low/ Artificial Light

Rear Camera Pic Taken From Running Train
Frankly speaking about battery life it is decent enough to live with it for regular user and last less then a day for heavy user. Honor 6X packed with 3340 mAh of battery juice. Device have support fast charging but lacking for USB type C which seems to be common for devices these days.

Verdict:

Still device does not offer any special out of box feature. Just dual camera lenses is some feature Honor is offering, but on other hand low light condition user will be unhappy with the quality. Beside still Honor does not provide Android OS updates. Still there are many feature lacking that feel bit disappointing like Type C charging, camera performance in low light, hybrid SIM so no true dual SIM. Honor 6X variant 3GB RAM and 32GB of storage for 12999 while for 4GB and 64GB version you have to pay 14999 INR which not good bargain for this.

Beside Honor 6X have strong contender for competition for Redmi Not 4 and Moto 4G Plus. We give this device :

8 Out Of 10
So here is all about the review of Honor 6X. If you have nay question then lets know in comment below. Thank you for reading.

Samsung Redefines TV Picture & Design With the Launch of QLED TV India

05:59 Add Comment
Samsung introduces world’s first TVs with 100% Colour Volume, HDR 2000 nits of brightness and one Remote Control and an innovative design solution called Invisible connection on New Delhi. Samsung Electronics today launched its flagship premium line-up of QLED TVs in India and showcased its innovative TV.



The ‘TV of Light’, a name given to Samsung QLED TV for its delivery of optimal brightness levels and stunning visual experience, is a new era of televisions and transforming the living room of tomorrow with its focus on the lifestyle TV concept. QLED TVs come with four global first innovations. They achieve 100% Colour Volume, the HDR 2000 functionality brings out hidden details, an Invisible Connection keeps your living room clutter free and One Remote Control offers an intuitive experience. The No Gap Wall-mount and the optional easel-like Studio Stand light up the aesthetics of your home. Fusing a slim, sleek and premium metal body with a nearly bezel-less display, QLED TVs set the tone for exceptional sophistication.



Samsung also showcased its newest innovation – The Frame. Instead of fading to black like a conventional TV, The Frame’s display transforms into a work of art, letting users select from a collection of more than 100 art pieces in 10 different categories, including landscape, architecture, wildlife, action, drawing and more. Paired with numerous options for art layouts and colours, as well as customizable accessory options including interchangeable bezels and an optional Studio Stand, it truly complements the user’s living space.

Here are some official words from Mr. HC Hong, President and CEO, Samsung Southwest Asia, said, 
“Samsung’s QLED TVs are ushering in a new era of televisions, with innovations that are ahead of their time. These televisions reflect our global ambition. Samsung has been the world’s biggest television brand for the last 11 consecutive years. We are also India’s top television brand for the last decade and the most trusted brand in the consumer electronics category.”
 Mr. Rajeev Bhutani, Vice President, Consumer Electronics Business, Samsung India said,

“QLED TV, powered by Samsung’s quantum dot technology, provides true-to-life images that no other TV can match. It empowers you to think about the television in a new way, bringing art and entertainment into new parts of your home. The QLED TV is as beautiful when turned off as it is when it’s on and will help us grow the demand for premium TVs as well as our market share in India even further,”

QLED TVs have been designed with the consumer in mind and focus on addressing three key consumer pain points through solutions known as Q Picture, Q Style and Q Smart. Lets see each concept in detail: 


Q Picture: Turns Light into Perfect Colour

The newly-announced QLED TV takes quantum dot technology to the next level with advancements in light efficiency, stability and a wider colour spectrum. With new metal alloy quantum dots, the QLED TV addresses all major aspects of picture quality, including Colour Volume, brightness, bold contrast and viewing angle. QLED TV can express accurate colour and achieves a 100% Colour Volume – the highest in the market today, earning accreditation from Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker (VDE), one of Europe’s largest technical-scientific associations.

QLED TV’s advanced HDR 2000 functionality allows users to see every hidden detail as it was meant to be seen, with no loss or distortion of colour. In addition, QLED TV’s rich, deep black levels and bold contrast provide a consistent viewing experience regardless of a room’s lighting.

Q Style: Design Your Space

The all-new Invisible Connection cable helps manage unsightly cords and clutter with a refined, single cord system. Consumers can now design their space with a single optical cable that brings all devices together, reclaiming the living room space once occupied by set-top boxes and external devices.

Samsung has also introduced the No Gap Wall-mount, which brings the TV flush against the wall, closer than ever before. For those who do not wish to mount their TV onto the wall, there is also a range of Samsung TV stands. Consumers can use the stylish metal stand that accompanies the TV or buy the Studio Stand that is designed like an easel and is an ideal accompaniment for any artist-inspired living space.

Q Smart: Control Devices and Content with One Remote Control

With the Samsung One Remote, consumers can control most connected TV devices with just one remote control. The enhanced Samsung One Remote now supports more devices and offers voice control capabilities across more Smart TV features.

In addition, Samsung’s latest Smart View App allows users to seamlessly share content from their smartphone to the TV. Users can enjoy a more personalized experience with the new ‘Smart Hub’ interface on the ‘Smart View’ app. The Smart View app supports both Android and iOS mobile devices.

QLED TVs will be launched in three series, Q9, Q8 and Q7, in 55 inches (138 cm), 65 inches (163 cm), 75 inches (189 cm) and 88 inches (223 cm), starting May 2017. QLED TVs will be priced between INR 3,14,900 and INR 24,99,900 in India.

Consumers can pre-book their QLED TVs between May 2 and May 21 to avail the special pre-book offer of a free Samsung Galaxy S8+ (Gold). For more details on the pre-book offer, consumers can visit: www.samsung.com/in/microsite/qledtv/

Intext Aqua Crystal Smartphone Review

21:29 Add Comment
Recently Intex has launched their new Aqua series with the 3 devices.  Intex Aqua 4.0 which is belong to low range market, Intex Aqua Crystal which belongs to Low-mid range market and Intex Aqua Supreme+ which is high end device. We have got Intex Aqua Crystal almost a week ago, here we are going to share our view for this device.




Unboxing:

Well after getting this nicely packed attractive box, when you open it, first thing you will find is Intex Aqua Crystal device lying on top. Underneath the device you find all accessories like Wall charging adaptor with power cable, a earphones, Transparent crystal back cover case along SIM ejector tool with user manuals.

Design And Display:



Well talking about the design this smartphone look very premium at a glance. Device have metal alike frame on sides and glass finish back side gives phone a shiny look. Intex Aqua Crystal is very simple phone that has 3.5 mm jack on the extreme top of the device. At bottom smartphone have microphone followed by Micro-USB charging slot and at the end speakers.





In front side device have proximity and light sensor followed y 5MP selfie shooter ending with earpiece in the middle. At the bottom of the screen device have 3 touch sensitive navigation buttons. Well on back side in upper left corner Intex Aqua Crystal have 8MP rear camera and beside that it have dual tone LED flash light. Below the camera there is Intex branding at the back.



One side of the device contain Volume rocker keys along with power button where as on the other side we have hybrid SIM tray.





Intex Aqua Crystal comes with 5 inches HD IPS display producing vivid colours range with crisp and sharp display.

Hardware Software And Performance:



Intex Aqua Crystal have 5 Inches HD IPS display panel integrated producing dynamic colours range. At the given price range display provided by Intex is very good. Device is powered by 1.25 GHz quad core MediaTek processor with 1GB RAM. Looking at the processor front device seems to be low performing as compared to others in the same price segment like Redmi 3S. Device have Hybrid Dual SIM slot supporting 4G network for faster internet access.

Intex Aqua Crystal have 8 GB internal storage (4GB usable) expandable upto 32GB by SD card. The thing that are bit disappointing are 8 internal memory our of which only 4GB are usable and 1GB RAM memory along with weak processor. By looking at the app size these days device cannot sustain itself for long run, but expanding memory with SD card can help to some extended. The first thing I'll suggest you do after getting this device is remove the bloatwares and disable system apps that you do not use, it will help you with saving some space on your device and improve overall performance.

Device runs on Android 6.0 that is Marshmallow. Intex haven't done much of customization on Android. Device runs very smooth and fluid. But sill if you consider price factor still a good deal. Well device handle light weight apps multitasking very smoothly. But still looking at processor used I would say device performs better then expected.

Well talking about camera Intex Aqua Crystal have 8MP rear camera which provide some decent quality pictures. Video recording with this device is below an average quality. In Past we have used 8MP camera and today smartphone manufacturers provide 8MP front camera capable of recoding Full HD videos. Frankly speaking Intex Aqua Crystal doesn't stand a chance in this competition. Front 5MP camera is also basic nothing special in that. Image quality is decent.

Device support 4G LET network (compatible with JIO as well), device also have other connectivity options like WI-FI, Bluetooth, GPS, FM radio. One thing I want to mention here is call quality was excellent throughout our review. No call drops and loud and clear voice from and to the ends. Beside if we talk about battery Intex Aqua Crystal have 2100 mAh Non Removable battery. Battery provide average usage time of about 4-5 hours for average users. It takes around 3 to 3 and half hours to charge it 0% to 100%.

Intex has priced this device at INR 6,990/- which is lowest price that you can get.

Final Words:

Frankly speaking if you want one spare device supporting 4G network for day to day usage device is very good. Intex Aqua Crystal provide still decent usage at this price point. Obliviously it have some cons as well but still I will say a decent deal. But if you want good performance at this price range batter go for Coolpad Note 3 Light or Redmi 3 or 3S.

Here is all about Intex Aqua Crystal. If you have any questions or queries feel free to comment below. Stay tuned for more. Thank you for the reading.

Creative Aurvana In-Ear 3 Plus Review

07:27 Add Comment
Creative is one of the most renowned brands when it comes to earphones and sound section. We earlier reviewed the Creative Aurvana In-Ear 2 Plus and now we have also got our hands on it's successor creative Aurvana In-Ear 3 Plus. Aurvana In-Ear 3 Plus are upgraded version of Aurvana In-Ear 3, even though both are very similar but there are some changes ofcource.


Unboxing:

Aurvana In-Ear 3 Plus comes in transparent hard plastic box. You can only see the earphones packed within on upper half and lower half of the box is covered by banner with Aurvana In-Ear 3 Plus and their specification. While opening it you might find it bit difficult since you have pull out upper part hard to open the box. Once you open it you can see the ear-buds are nicely attached to the plastic stand and below that you will find accessories, you will get earphones, different sized ear-tips, clearing tool, nice earphone carry case and an aeroplane adaptor with some user manual.

Build And Design:


Design of Aurvana In-Ear 3 Plus is almost same and very much resemble to Aurvana In-Ear 3. Aurvana In-Ear 3 Plus looks very nicely design and attractive. Have nice build quality beside earphone cable are also quoted using braided fabric. The one we have received are in copper brownish colour looks very premium and nicely design  In-Ear earphones.


This are one of the upside down or can say cable over the ear variety earphone.  You will mainly face 2 issues while getting used to this in-ear earphone:
  • Finding perfect fit for you ears, since medium size comes as default size.
  • If you used to use normal in-ear earphones then getting used to this type is bit hazy.
So, overall quality is good but not best in their price range.

Connectivity:

It seems creative does some excellent job for manufacturing Aurvana In-Ear 3 Plus. Aurvana In-Ear 3 Plus have 4.25ft long cable with quoted using braided fabric. Creative has provided single remote containing button along with volume slider. You can use the button for play and pause the music by single press and can forward the song using double tap. Volume slider comes very handy when it comes to controlling volume at various situations. One of the biggest advantage of this, you don't have take out your smartphone every now and then to adjust the volume. But we would recommend you not to listen to the full volume using volume slider. Beside earphone provide excellent sound quality during the call.

Sound Quality:

Well on sound quality Creative did some excellent job where Aurvana In-Ear 3 were lacking. We have tested this earphone using many smartphones and music players, they perform well. If we talk about lows then sound quality on low bits are solid. You can hear the lows clearly but again it depend of level of bass used in soundtrack. Most of instrument and vocals have their sound under the mids in the song. They are very crisp and clear during our testing. In highs treble are controlled well, unlike in the Aurvana In-Ear 2 Plus treble are not controlled well so was bit disappointed. But here Aurvana In-Ear 3 Plus creative has rectify their shortcoming on previous versions.

Still when we talk about bass Aurvana In-Ear 3 Plus is still lacking behind. The effect are not as expected but considerably good. So if we talk about overall sound and music experience Aurvana In-Ear 3 Plus perform very well just creative need to work on bass a little bit for reaching excellence. Active noise cancellation is very effective. While listening to music with perfect ear-fit you are hardly able to listen to outside noise.

Pricing And Final Words :

Well this Aurvana In-Ear 3 Plus in India at 11,999/- INR and are available to order from Amazon. The price seems to be bit higher. But looking at build and sound quality price is considerably reasonable. Music lovers who are keen for every beat of the sound and want to listen ups and downs crisp and clearly for them this are perfectly suited. Even cable are durable and well protected for rough usage. So overall our rating for this earphones are :
 4.5 Out of 5
