The smartphone is offered in two variants. One with support for 4G only and another with support for both 4G…

Realme 6 Pro Review

Even before there were 5G flagships, it’s Realme’s Pro series that really plastered its name in people’s minds.

As much as I like asking the question, the answer is quite simple. It is a cheaper alternative to upgrading your TV. Say you have a TV from 2015 or 2016. It still has a couple of years of life left in the panel. But the Netflix app on that TV has stopped working or the TV wasn’t really smart, to begin with. In such…

Samsung Galaxy S10e detailed review When we think of flagship devices in 2019, form factors that come to our mind range from giant phablets to bezel-less, edge-to-edge displays to even displays that fold. And while Samsung did launch flagships that are large, that can fold and have more cameras than you can keep count, the Korean giant also came out with the Galaxy S10E, a compact flagship to cater to a segment of users that have mostly been ignored in India.
