When Beyonce asks you to put the BASS on, you obey her! The B-Queen knows what magic Bass note is capable of doing to any given song of any given genre. It’s like bringing the beats to life. SONY as a brand, being in the music industry for decades, surely knows the importance of this noise and that understanding has let to the production of one sheer piece of gadget indulgence – SONY MDR XB950B1 WIRELESS STEREO HEADSET WITH EXTRA BASS!   Yep, you heard it right. The headset is not only bluetooth enabled ‘wireless’, but it comes with a button for an extra pumped up dose of Bass. Now it’s hard to explain in words the huge impact bass makes to a song, but if I have to still scribble a line, then i’ll say it’s like letting EMINEM rap (Extra Bass) in a Beatles song. That’s the brilliance of the bass effect. Speaking about the SONY MDR XB950B1 EXTRA BASS STEREO HEADSET, then I can say that I’ve finally found a gadget that gives me pure musical experience with easy handling and application features, surround sound effect (makes you feel like you’re listening to music live in concert), cuts down on the external noise and boosts the amplification of musical beats to their full potential; with ease.   I vouch for the fact that the design of this headset is definitely a magnet in the crowd, because I have seen many heads turn towards this black beauty, while I walk past the herd, lost in the music. The matt black colour of this headset is a big hit among men, but turns out that it equally pleases the girl parade as well! Enhanced Battery life of SONY MDR XB950B1 is an added bonus for travellers like me, who prefer listening to …

March 14, 2017
Gionee S6s_10

Music fests are all about music, good wine, great company and a greater technology to capture the moments for life. And that’s exactly what I had aimed to do on my trip to attend the Sula Fest at Nashik couple of weeks back. And to keep up with the definition of natural light + spot lights that the arena experienced throughout the course of 3 consecutive days, I put to test Gionee S6s smartphone. I took this phone on testing for my entire Mumbai 2017 trip, took photos everywhere, in every kind of light possible, with as much zoom possible and I can let the photographs do the talking for you. Now before I go on sharing my experience on its camera quality, interface usage, processing and battery life, let me first introduce you to the specifications of Gionee S6s smartphone. Gionee S6s consists of a 5.5 inch IPS In-Cell display with HD resolution. Runs on 1.3Ghz MediaTek 6753 octa-core processor with 3GB RAM. The smartphone has an inbuilt storage of 32GB and is expandable using microSD card as well. THE LOOK Sleek, lightweight and smart is my definition of describing its look. It comes in two shades of colours, Latte Gold and Mocha Gold. The one that I reviewed was Mocha Gold. I liked the metallic sheen finish of its back cover with the front dipped in matt mocha and black.   The sleekness of this phone makes it more portable with easy grip handling experience. Amidst all the crowd and chaos, not even once did I lose the grip of it. THE INTERFACE Quite easy to use with some great inbuilt apps that come in handy upon usage, I found it easy to operate and customise it for my need. The phone comes with in-built basic social media apps like …

LYF FLAME 8 MOBILE PHONE REVIEW

August 24, 2016
LYF FLAME 8_24

With technology in communications growing in leaps and bounds, we are now spoilt for choice when it comes to gadgets. I remember the days when owning a mobile phone was an extravagant affair- with low quality user interface and exorbitant costs. Times have changed and today, we expect sophisticated technology, at pocket friendly prices. Reliance Communications has been at the helm of this mobile revolution in India, so when they announced the Lyf Smartphone+ phone, I decided to try them out for myself. The brand offers VOLTE 4G smartphone that they have categorised as per the 4 elements of life –Earth, Water, Wind & Flame. Each category consists of many handsets designed keeping in mind the colour palette and the look of the phone with reference to these elements. I picked the category that suits my aura best – FLAME. FLAME 8 being the latest addition to the ‘Flame’ family, that’s what we are talking about in this article. The mobile phone is light weight, edgy in appearance with a smooth finish around the corners and is quite sturdy. The glossy black back and a glass coating in the front makes it look stylish and sophisticated. The phone has an 8MP rear and 5MP front cameras. You can even play around with ISO levels, in-built filters, Face Detection feature, and custom settings to take vibrant shots on the go. This is great for someone like me, as I move around frequently, and we’re constantly chasing good lighting. For a phone priced under the 10k range, FLAME 8 definitely stands out as a winner. This gadget has a comfortable grip, and comes with a bright 11.43 screen with vibrant colour display, offering great video viewing and gaming experience on the move. The FLAME 8 comes with in-built JIO APPS that take …
