Apple’s next iPad Pro model may have wireless charging support and a glass back | Digit

None of the iPads in Apple’s current tablet lineup supports wireless charging, but it looks like that’s about to change soon. According to a new Bloomberg report, the Cupertino tech giant is working on a new version of the iPad Pro that supports wireless charging. And to accommodate the tech behind that, Apple is also said to switch to a glass back for the new models. Both of these changes are quite significant to the tablet since its first release back in 2010. This would be the first iPad model…

Sony Alpha A9 Review: The mirrorless speed demon

Sony Alpha A9 detailed review Sony has launched the A9 last year in India, a camera that heralded the final evolution of the mirrorless camera. One after the other, Sony has cracked the formula for reliable image quality, high resolution and impressive film capture, and now, with the A9, they are treading the sports camera territory. Boasting the capability of shooting up to 20 frames per second (RAW) and a focus system that the company claims is perfectly suited for wildlife and sports photographers. But does the A9 deliver on…

Mi TV 4A Pro 49-inch Review: Fantastic 1080p performance, bleak HDR

Mi TV 4A Pro 49-inch detailed review The biggest problem with buying a budget smart TV in India today is that all of them run on AOSP (Android Open Source Platform). This means that even though you have access to hundreds and thousands of apps on the TV, including the likes of Amazon Prime Videos and Netflix, the experience is very underwhelming because these are mobile versions of the apps and can’t exploit the potential of the panel on your TV. Today we have with us the Xiaomi Mi LED…

Sony A9F TV Review: Almost perfect OLED TV

Sony A9F TV detailed review At CES 2018, Sony showed off the A8F OLED TV which launched earlier this year in India. The TV brought with it a new design but was essentially the A1 repackaged for 2018. You can read our review of the Sony A8F here. The highlight of Sony’s CES 2018 presence was the new X1 Ultimate chip that would replace scene-based rendering to object based rendering making HDR content look even more desirable. Sadly, there were no consumer TVs displayed showing off the power of the…

Lenovo Yoga C930 Review: High on style, performance, and price

The HP Spectre x360 2019 refresh, which I reviewed last month, is one of the few laptop models out in the market that I believe belongs to an unconventional product category I like to call Creative Convertibles. Apart from being portable, capable, and ready for pen input, such devices are also a little quirky in their exterior design. They sport expensive build materials in bright, bold colours to stand out in a crowd. They’re hipsters. They’re eccentric. They scream style and boldness. And the Lenovo Yoga C930 is one of them.…

Lenovo IdeaPad 530S Review: Suave looks. Slick performance.

Lenovo IdeaPad 530S detailed review Some twelve years ago, when the James Bond film franchise hit a period of doldrums, Eon Productions took charge of the matter by rebooting the entire series with Casino Royale and injecting the film with a fresh stream of maturity and classiness. A reboot of this sort, I believe,  has taken place with Lenovo’s current generation of IdeaPads. Launched in 2015, the 500 series of IdeaPads calls itself a range of ‘Powerful Multimedia Laptops’. And with the most recent addition, the Lenovo IdeaPad 530S, I…

Wings Slay Review: A decent budget TWS

Amidst the growing number of audio companies with budgetary offerings, Wings Lifestyle, a home-grown audio brand, is slowly but surely becoming a notable one with its lineup of affordable true wireless earphones and neckband-style wireless earphones. The Wings Slay is the latest addition to the relatively nascent company’s true wireless portfolio, and is also the cheapest TWS earphones they offer, priced at merely 1,799. Let’s see if Wings has developed a product that is worth considering below Rs 2,000 in our review. Build and comfort Inexpensive and well-built. These are…

Redmi SonicBass Wireless Earphones Review: A pretty decent budgetary purchase

Affordable wireless earphones from the likes of companies such as Redmi, Realme, Wings, OnePlus, Oppo and others have become increasingly popular amidst the largely price-conscious Indian market. While these earphones certainly do not contend against high-end wireless earphones from companies such as Sony, Jabra, Bose, and others, they are increasingly providing a compelling number of features and sometimes, even good sound quality at this lucrative price point. Priced at merely Rs 999, Redmi has now launched the Redmi SonicBass Wireless Earphones, a pair of neckband style wireless earphones. Let’s see…
