The Google Pixel is a successor to the successful Nexus line of phones which started to dwindle in popularity towards the end of their cycle. Google’s new Pixel and Pixel XL are what iPhone and iPhone Plus are to Apple, proprietary phones, designed to work perfectly well with their software. The Google Pixel and Pixel XL also break the traditional price barrier for Nexus devices pricing them upwards of US$ 649 and in India starting at a Rs. 57000 slightly short of the iPhone 7 price tag. However, the Google Pixel has failed to excite the Indian consumers like the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus did, according to our source at Flipkart. The company has received little pre-orders and [...]
The state of affairs are poor for Samsung Mobile, as the company deals with its biggest disaster yet. The Note 7 has truly turned out to be a problem for the brand, an expensive problem at that.
The reported recall and disposal of the Note 7, will cost the parent company a whopping $5.3 Billion. However Samsung has assured its investors that it plans to recover the losses in less than three quarters after the Note 7 process is complete.
Samsung claims it will expand sales of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge and will not be releasing updated versions of those devices. Samsung has recalled 1.9 million Note 7 units in the US , 200,000 phones in China and about half [...]
Samsung has confirmed that they will be putting the Note 7 to rest the old fashioned way. The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 units will be completely disposed off, as it seems Samsung wants no reminder of its failings. Samsung has already adjusted its quarterly estimates to account for $2 billion in losses.
The reality is that, short of Apple’s new recycling initiatives, smartphones are not really recycled. They end up in landfills causing huge environmental damage. Samsung has in all manufactured over 2 million Note 7s, and inefficient manufacturing along with no plans of smartphone recycling make the difficult-to-mine rare earth elements, like gold, silver, copper, platinum [...]
The Note 7 is Dead and with it Samsung has essentially lost market share, customer loyalty and a whole lot of goodwill for the fiasco, not to mention billions of dollars of losses and enormous environmental trash. But, in a last ditch effort to save face with Samsung owners atleast in the US, Samsung is offering US $ 100 in Samsung Credit (for future purchases) to those who exchange the Galaxy Note 7 with another Samsung device.
Samsung will still give you just $25 if you decide to rather switch to Apple, HTC or any other brand. The best option might be to avoid the exchange and get a full refund where available.
The Note 7 is not the only device affected with the [...]

OnePlus may have ended the production for their OnePlus 3 flagship phone, due to which the delivery times for the phone in most countries is between three and four weeks for the OnePlus 3 to ship. In India, however, stocks seem to be aplenty for both the Graphite and Gold colour variant.
OnePlus has faced major problems securing proper supplies of the AMOLED panels which are in short supply due to their popularity. One new news emerging is that the company will be halting production of the current outgoing OnePlus 3 smartphone and replacing it with an upcoming model which will feature an LCD display. The reworked handset is expected to be the OnePlus 3 Plus or the OnePlus 3 [...]
Xiaomi is yet to launch the Redmi Note 4 in India. However we got an early preview of the device by ordering it from China. The Redmi Note 4 is an update to the Redmi Note 3 launched earlier this year and is expected to hit India in the next few weeks. Xiaomi may launch the phone in India with a Snapdragon chipset due to patent issues, but, we have heard news that they have been resolved. So we might see the Mediatek variant in India after all .
The Redmi Note 4 has a 5.5 inch LCD display which has good visibility indoor and outdoor, along with wide viewing angles. The front houses a 5 MP camera, and the rear a 13 MP shooter with decent colour optimisations. The Redmi [...]
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 has turned in the Achilles’ heel for the South Korean electronics giant, leading to irreparable damage to the company’s reputation.
The new smartphone which was touted by many as being the best Android Smartphone of the year initially started to catch fire while charging. The company then issued a global recall of the smartphone, which in itself was poorly executed, while reports of more Samsung phones, including the Galaxy S7 Edge, Core Prime and some other previous models of Galaxy Note catching fire and exploding emerged.
