Samsung Gear S2 - The Latest Samsung SmartWatch

The gear 2 is a device that nobody proposal would appear... At the least no longer this quickly after the first version. It is whatever of a climbdown for Samsung to relaunch a product so soon, but as an alternative than call it embarrassing i'd a lot as an alternative applaud Samsung for the feat.

Admittedly those that purchased the primary, costly, model is not going to be joyful there is a new one out already - but alternatively, it's an awfully nascent market and there will not be too many customers out there.

The gear 2 has a enormous exchange or two compared to the normal: first of all, it's now jogging Samsung's jointly-developed Tizen OS as a substitute than Android, and it can be moved the digital camera into the physique of the watch, alternatively than forcing it onto the strap.

The overall seem is far-sophisticated and there is a bevy of recent science to make this valued at a seem when you pushed aside the primary apparatus.

Samsung Gear 2 Overview

this means that you may now change straps for your Galaxy equipment, which is likely one of the essential disadvantages we noted within the long-established. It's also now imbued with an infra-crimson blaster, meaning you can manage your television and set high box from the alleviation of your own wrist.

You're going to desire a compatible Samsung gadget with the intention to use the apparatus 2, of which there are presently 18, together with the new Galaxy S5.

At the same time it is managed to convey in some key specs and beef up the design quite, the gear 2 remains to be a alternatively expensive smartwatch, coming in at £250 ($295, AU$350). That is virtually the rate the customary emerged at, and it suffered due to that cost tag.

The rationale is inconspicuous: while the gear 2 is a cool factor to have (Samsung would not want it being known as an adjunct, instead a standalone gadget) it nonetheless struggles to have an actual use case, which is why losing that so much money is usually a hard promote to patrons still getting to grips with spending a lot on a smartphone.

To alleviate that purpose for purchase, Samsung has decided to add in some health ability with the apparatus 2 in the form of a sophisticated pedometer and a coronary heart expense reveal, as good as endeavor tracking so which you could run, stroll, hike or cycle.

The battery lifestyles is improved vastly, the gear 2 can splash round in water and dust due to being IP67 rated and comes in a variety of nicer colours (rose gold and silver) and is frequently a significantly better device - but is it worth the nonetheless-high fee tag Samsung is commanding, in particular when the equipment 2 Neo (the same smartwatch produced from inferior materials and losing the digicam) is a lot more cost effective?


The design of the gear 2 is very similar to the primary iteration of Samsung's smartwatches, however nonetheless manages to come with its possess sense of exact style.

It can be rough to give an explanation for, however the fact the strap is now a separate piece to the principal physique of the watch has forced Samsung to refine the design of things like the digicam and the house button.

Samsung Equipment 2 Review

Correctly, the latter phase is ordinarily one of the first-rate bits of the reshaped equipment 2, with the dwelling button now on the entrance of the mobile phone as a substitute than being a small plastic protrusion on the side of the watch.

That is essential should you've got even a modicum of arm hair, as tapping the button would mostly result in pulling out just a few stray follicles, meaning you're left with a Pavlovian hate of making use of your high priced new watch.

With the metallic button on the front, with a best quantity of travel, the expertise is the same as far as the UI goes (lengthy press to show off or activate out of doors mode) and you could assign many options to the double tap action.

Samsung Apparatus 2 Assessment

This implies it is handy to access elements like notifications with the gear 2 in sleep mode, and is a swift motion too.

The equipment 2 isn't a small device, coming in at 36.9 x 58.4x 10.Zero mm, nevertheless it does not believe cumbersome on the wrist. It's overt, that's for certain, and those who select a smaller and daintier timepiece is not going to believe like it is a nice fashion accessory, but when you're looking to get your palms on a smartwatch it is now not over the top.

Samsung Gear 2 Evaluation

The Sony Smartwatch 2 and the Pebble steel are each better gadgets in terms of size, however Samsung's mixture of business design and more refined elements (like the digicam and IR blaster integration) still brings an detail of premium nice to court cases.

The display, a 1.Sixty three-inch OLED affair, is first-class too. It's now not best if you are looking to do some thing with high res portraits, corresponding to portraits or equivalent, nevertheless it's great for any snaps you have got taken utilising the gear 2.

The contrast ratio of the OLED monitor approach if you are doing some thing like timing your meals, testing how many steps you've taken or simply flicking by means of music, appears fairly best and is a nice expertise on whatever you might have spent a lot money on.

Design-wise i'm an actual fan of what Samsung has accomplished with the apparatus 2 - it is tough to fault the commercial design that won plaudits in its last new release from jewellers. The screw holes would have disappeared, which is some thing of a shame given than added to its premium industrial design, but it surely's still acquired an awfully smooth seem to it.

Being ready to vary the straps will likely be a real boon to a few users, however I particularly just like the straps that healthy. I'm not a tremendous fan of the Rose Gold color that I had on scan, however it nonetheless drew some admiring glances from others.

Micromax YUREKA Launched at Rs. 8999 In India

Micromax Yureka (yes, it is not YU but YUREKA) has been launched and suprisingly the phone is priced below what most would have expected. At Rs. 8999/- the phone probably has one of the highest “Value For Money” quotient!

While most of the details we put up yesterday (read below) are bang on, we expected a 3GB RAM phone with higher storage space. But at Rs. 8999, there is nothing much to complain about. The phone is firmly targeted at mid-range users and competes with likes of Redmi Note 4G and second generation Moto G.
Micromax Yu Specifications

Here are the official specifications of the Micromax Yureka phone.:
  1. Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 Cortex A-53 64bit SOC ARMv8 clocked at 1.5GHz Octacore and Adreno 405 GPU.
  2. Full 4G LTE CAT4 Support.
  3. Cyanogen OS 11
  4. 5.5 inch HD IPS Display With Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
  5. 13MP shooter with Sony EXMOR sensor with f/2.2 aperture with a blue filter.
  6. 5MP front facing selfie camera.
  7. 1080p at 30fps and 720p at 60fps video recording with 120fps coming soon.
  8. 16GB Internal with 2GB RAM.
  9. Expandable storage.
  10. 2500 mAh Li Po battery.
  11. Dual SIM
  12. Warranty will still be there if u root ur YUREKA.
  13. Doorstep replacement/repair.
The phone is definitely going to appeal to millions of Indians, as it checks most of the boxes that people want. It is dual Sim, has expandable storage and comes with decent 2GB RAM, which means it is not going to stutter even with some heavy applications running.
What we expected was that Cyanogenmod OS would launch their Lollipop CM12 update, but that did not happen. Once this phone is updated to CM12, the phone is really going to shine with their 64bit SOC support!
The only downside we see with this phone is the battery. The 5.5 inch screen on Yureka is going to guzzle battery like crazy and it should just about pull through the day with normal usage. Thankfully, it has CyanogenMod on it, which should help with battery life.
Overall, it is an excellent phone for the price 
We will post a detailed review as soon as we get our hands on it!

Finally, the much talked about Micromax Yu Branded phone will launch on Thursday, December 18th. And from what we know, the phone is not only going to be a beast, but will also come at a price point that is extremely competitive!
Yes, something very similar to OnePlus One (or even better). The launch will be in New Delhi on 18th, followed by events in Mumbai (19th) and Delhi (20th). Micromax co-founder Rahul Sharma is expected at all the 3 events. Here is the invitation we have received from Micromax.
But first, why Micromax Yu as a separate brand?
Micromax needs to reinvent itself due to onslaught of newer Chinese brands like Xiaomi, OnePlus and Gionee. They are selling phones that are not only better, but also at a price point that is affordable to most!
While Micromax Smartphones are cheap, they have also known to churn out under-powered devices. With Micromax Yu they want to reposition themselves against these Chinese Smartphone players.
Are you wondering how the first Micromax Yu phone will be?
While Micromax has not announced anything, we know from our sources that it will be a high-end phone, that will probably have better specifications than OnePlus and price which is even lower!
Here are the specification details that we know…
The Yu Smartphone will be the first in India to have a 64 bit support. It will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core CPU and will support the 4G-LTE networks in India.
As far as the screen goes, it will 5.5 inch screen with HD display or higher.
[Updated: We just got hold of main Micromax Yu Specifications. Here they are] With Micromax’s exclusive partnership with Cyanogen OS, there is no question which OS Micromax Yu will sport. However, it is interesting that only Android Lollipop supports 64 bit architecture, and Cyanogen is still not out with their Lollipop update. It might just happen that Micromax Yu may be the first phones to get their upcoming Lollipop updates.
With Micromax Yu, they are also changing the way the phones will be sold. It will be Online-Only model just like OnePlus One and Xiaomi phones. The Yu phones will be available exclusively on Amazon India.
Wondering what the price of this phone will be? Any guesses?
Again, there is no official confirmation, but in our view price will be around Rs. 19,999/-. At that price, Micromax YU will probably be the most Value For Money high-end smartphone available in the market.
I am wondering what are the likes of Samsung, LG, HTC, Sony and others are going to do…
Update: Ok, so the price of the phone is closer to Rs. 10,000 rather than Rs. 20,000. While I am happy that price is very low, it also suggests that phone probably has 2GB RAM (or 1GB) rather than 3GB which I had expected. The import details shows that the import cost of this phone is Rs. 8301. So, it will be priced around 9-10k! Probably competing with Redmi Note 4G.

And here is the actual picture of the phone!

First Micromax Yu Yureka Sale

On January 13th, first Yu Yureka Sale happened and Micromax had announced that they had 10,000 units for sale. The sale was a complete fiasco with over 300,000 users registering for 10,000 phones. However, after the sale many users came to know that evem 10k phones were not available, only 3000 were available for price of 8,999. Many users were shown the price of 12,499/-.

Upcoming Samsung Phones 2014: The Fastest Samsung Handset On The Planet

For the past couple of weeks, we have seen one of the upcoming Samsung phones for 2014, and it certainly looks like the Korean tech giant wants to directly aim at the upcoming 4.7-inch version of the iPhone 6. 
According to several leaked images and reports, the Galaxy Alpha, Samsung's answer to the smaller iPhone 6, will be the manufacturer's first smartphone to actualy get a metal frame. 

While it is not the news we wanted - we certainly would have wanted a metal case from front to back - it is still considered a huge leap for Samsung who have always settled for polycarbonate plastic in its flagships.
The interesting thing to point out here is that aside from the rumored chipset, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha is actually a high midranger. 

The upcoming Android smartphone gets a 4.7-inch display with only HD (1280 x 720) resolution, compared to the QHD (2560 x 1440) display of the Galaxy S5 LTE-A for Korea, and the Galaxy Note 4. 
Other  specs of the Galaxy Alpha include a 12 or 13MP primary camera, possibly with OIS, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of built-in memory without microSD card expansion, eerily similar to that of the iPhone. 
However, what most reports and consumers are waiting for is the Exynos chip that will come with the device. There are some rumors which claim that the Samsung Galaxy Alpha would get the company's latest Exynos 5433 chipset, which in a previous benchmark trumped the latest Qualcomm chip, none other than the Snapdragon 805. 
If the Exynos chip outperformed the Snapdragon 805 in a smartphone that has a QHD display, then theorethically, it should be leaps and bounds faster in just an HD screen. 
Is Samsung finally launching a no-compromise handset just to match Apple's iPhone 6? That's still uncertain right now, though if the rumors do pan out to be true, then we could see one of the closest mactchups between Apple and Samsung in recent years.

Top 5 Most-Popular Android Smartphones of 2014

Wow, we had a busy winter and early spring, at least in terms of new Android phones. This year kicked off with CES 2014 in January, and was followed quickly by Mobile World Congress 2014 in February where we had our first look at the Galaxy S5. Then, in late March, we were introduced to the HTC One (M8). Smartphone makers certainly aren’t sitting still — who could expect them to? — and that means the market is ripe with some new devices.

So, of course, we’re here to bring you our latest quarterly listing of the top 5 Android phones on the market. As usual, these are not in any specific order. Yes, we think the One (M8) is the best Android phone on the market right now, but we know tastes differ among consumers. Let’s get started.

1. LG G3


The LG G3 can be easily termed as the most powerful Android phone in the market today (July 2014).
The device is the latest entrant into the market with LG having launched the phone in June.

It arrived into the UAE market this month (July).

Display-wise it has a 5.5 inch screen and a 2,560 x 1,440 (Quad HD) resolution and is powered by a quad-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 801) Krait 400 processor.

Another significant feature of the LG G3 is its 13 MP camera that comes with a laser autofocus for taking much faster pictures.

While the 16GB device comes with a 2GB RAM the 32 GB model has a 3GB RAM.

The expandable memory slot can take an SD card with upto 128GB memory. A 16 GB model of LG G3 can be currently purchased in the UAE for Dh2,199.

2. HTC One M8

The phone stands out in terms of design and specs with its metallic finish and an equally powerful processor.

Like last year`s HTC One M7, the latest edition retains the design elements with a metallic uni-body finish that flows right up to the slightly bigger 5-inch, full HD (1080p) display.

With a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, and a 2GB RAM, the device is definitely faster compared to the previous edition.

The ultrapixel dual camera in the smartphone - the first of its kind in a mobile device is actually a 4MP camera that uses larger sensors for low light conditions.

HTC initially launched the device in three colours – Grey, Silver and Gold. It later introduced additional versions adding a red variant and a Harmon Kardon edition.

The device can be purchased today in the UAE at Dh2,199.

3. Samsung Galaxy S5

The device holds the distinction of possibly being the number one selling Android smartphone so far this year. Samsung unveiled the device at Berlin in February with some new features - water and dust resistant, additional sensors to measure heart rate, a pedometer to track and measure the walking distance, calories, speed, duration, and so on.

Samsung received a lot of flak for persisting with the same design as that on the Galaxy S4.

The hardware however is powerful enough with a 2.5 GHz quad core krait 400 processor and Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset and a 2GB RAM.

The S5, however, comes with a 2800mAh removable battery. The device is currently available here in the UAE for Dh2,099.

4. Sony Xperia Z2

Sony’s latest device is a power horse. The Xperia Z2 was also announced at the MWC but Sony failed to roll it out into retail stores for several months.

It only arrived here at the local and regional markets last month in June. The most impressive feature of the phone is its camera – thanks to its 20.7 MP sensor and is capable of recording 4K videos.

The device incorporates the latest Sony TV display technologies.

In terms of design, the phone looks similar to its predecessor. The phone comes with a one-piece aluminum frame with glass panels all around. Sony has however increased the display size of the Z2 to 5.2” offering high-resolution Full HD Triluminos Display with X-Reality and a 1920 x 1080 progressive scan at 423 pixels per inch.

In terms of hardware the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 3GB RAM and also a large 3200 mAh battery.

The device can be currently purchased in the UAE for Dh2,199.

5. Lenovo Vibe Z

One of the first devices to be launched in the regional market this year Lenovo Vibe Z is the company’s first smartphone that is LTE-enabled.

The design of the phone looks wanting for improvement with a  polycarbonate plastic body and weighs just 147 grams.

The phone has a 5.5 inch screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Quad-core 2.2GHz processor, 2GB RAM and up to 16GB of internal storage, apart from a 13MP rear and 5Mp front camera.

The device can be currently purchased for Dh1,499.
