  1. Sony to launch Cyber-shot lenses for phones like the iPhone this month?

    A report from SonyAlpha Rumors indicates that Sony’s Cyber-shot WiFI lenses for smartphones will be getting launched by the end of this month starting at $250. These lenses are being expected to resolve the generally poor nature of photos clicked with smartphones by attaching wirelessly to the iPhone or Android phones, and clicking ~large 20 MP photos with fairly large sensors. There will be two versions of these lenses – the QX10, and the higher end QX100, and they will act like appendages of the phones they’re connected to. Read on below the break to know more about these lenses.                 Continue reading →
  2. 16 GB Samsung Nexus 10 tablet goes on sale at $339

    The Nexus line of tablets is always invariably associated with the bestselling Nexus 7s (both new and old). The reason is that the Nexus 7 just hit a sweet spot for Android tablets with both its size (as a 7 inch device), and its impressive specs at amazingly low prices (hovering around $200 or even lesser). Samsung made a fairly exciting Nexus tablet last year as well, and that was a 10 inch tablet called the Nexus 10. If you know about it, you’d be delighted to know that it has just got on sale for $339 for the 16 GB version on eBay. If you don’t, head to below the break to know more about it.               Continue reading →

  4. Here’s why buying an Android tablet is still a bad idea

      With the launch of every notable new Android tablet, the popular narrative is to expound on the improving standards of slates made on the Google operating system, while playing down the qualities of the known quantity that is the iPad (or iPad Mini). It has been particularly noticeable of late since the launch of the new Google Nexus 7, where several commentators have called the new Nexus a better tablet than the iPad Mini in almost every way.   Well, here’s the problem – the app ecosystem of Android was and is still inferior to that of iOS. While the gap may seem to be getting narrower by the day, that’s only true in the case of the smartphone versions of Android, as tablet optimized content is still a rarity in the Google Play Store. A new study from Canalys reiterates the fact that Android still has a lot of catching up to do as a tablet platform compared to iOS. Read on below the break to know why!                 Continue reading →
  5. Samsung harkens back to the days of clamshell phones with the new Hennessy smartphone

    Ever since the iPhone (or LG Prada, depending on which side of the fence you’re sitting on) got launched to the mainstream, practically every single phone manufacturer has gone on to embrace the idea of touchscreen phones which are housed in monolithic slabs rather enthusiastically. In fact, apart from a handful of feature phones, touchscreen displays are absolutely ubiquitous in the current day and age. Samsung is a prime example of a company that quickly dumped practically all of its phones with QWERTYs or numeric keypads and now is almost exclusively into making touch phones. Hence, their latest phone, named the Hennessy, is a curious little oddity in every imaginable way as it seems to be from a bygone era but has the relatively modern innards seen in smartphones today.

  6. Riptide GP2: Review

      Riptide was among the more popular (and somewhat ostentatious) games released in 2011, but it got some deserved kudos from critics as well as the buying public for its brilliant console quality graphics.  In the Android 4.3 event from last fortnight, the sequel to Riptide, called Riptide GP2, was one of the two new games given some extra attention (with the other being Prince of Persia : The Shadow and the Flame).             Continue reading →
  7. Do you click loads of photos with your Samsung Galaxy S4? Here are the post-processing apps you need!

    The Samsung Galaxy S4 has a rather brilliant 13 MP camera, and it is good enough to turn even the most uptight of its users into amateur photography enthusiasts in no time. However, the convenience brought about by mobile photography is often offset by the tiny and often ineffective image sensors found in even the best of mobile cameras, such as in the S4. What you need then is a great post-processing app to make your photos look almost pro-level quality. Read on to know some of the best options below the break.                     Continue reading →
  8. TouchWiz is ugly - Learn how to skin your Samsung Galaxy smartphone and give it a makeover in just 5 minutes!

    It wouldn't be an exaggeration to claim that Samsung *gets* Android phones. They have managed to combine their scorched earth policy of selling various phone models along with bringing through the biggest advances in mobile hardware at almost every step of the way. What they curiously don't seem to do well at all is design. We aren't targeting a specific phone here - Samsung's phones tend to be made of a cheap looking and feeling plastic (with no special treatment for their flagships either), while their default Android skin - Touchwiz - was, and is, an abomination. If you've bought a Samsung Galaxy phone at any point and wished you could just improve just about any aspect of the user experience, look no further than below the break to know more!             Continue reading →
  9. Google announces Android 4.3: Coming to all Nexus devices, along with Samsung Galaxy S 4 Google Edition

    Google's massive Android and Chrome event yesterday was most notable for the launch of the new Nexus 7 tablet, along with the possibly revolutionary Chromecast dongle. But another crucial part of the event yesterday was the launch of the new version of Android - version 4.3. It isn't Key Lime Pie yet, but this new (and possibly final) version of Jelly Bean has some great new features, and is available to almost all existing Nexus devices right away. Just as important, however, is the fact that the much touted Google Play editions of the Samsung Galaxy S 4 and HTC One will be getting it as over the air (OTA) updates soon enough as well.

  10. Bring iOS 7 to your Android device with Ultimate iOS 7 Launcher Theme

    Android may not be everyone's cup of tea as an OS to use daily, but there's no denying that it brings a level of customizability that the likes of iOS and Windows simply cannot get close to. It is possible to entirely change the look of an Android device with the help of the right launchers and themes (for better or worse), and while that level of granular control may overwhelm a lot of people, it does have its fans. Today, we bring you an app that can completely overhaul the 'Android-ness' of your Android based phone or tablet, and make its UI a dead ringer for Apple's recently launched iOS 7 mobile operating system.
