We loved HTC One and the latest update promises to be even better. But the burning question is- Is this one going to be game changer? Probably not! But the all new HTC One ME Dual appears to be great phone. It has a larger screen, two rear camera sensors and the familiar HTC’s sense UI albeit in an improved avatar. The chassis appears to have become more metallic. Overall, the HTC smartphone has a lot to take your breath away but can it create the same magic its predecessor weaved? Let’s take a look.


The latest from HTC supports dual SIM, fingerprint sensor, Nano SIM with 4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and the same old connectivity options that other smartphones offer. The screen is bigger this time around and the 5.2 inch WQHD screen offers a 1440×2560 pixel resolution making it great for viewing graphics from any angles. It takes reading e-books, playing games or watching games to a whole new level of display. The Corning Gorilla Glass 4 delivers stunning color consistency.

The HTC One ME Dual SIM runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop with HTC’s sense UI on top of it. The 64 bit 2.2 GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor promises superior performance, blazing multi-tasking and a thrilling gaming environment. The processor is backed by a 3 GB RAM and 32 GB of internal memory which is expandable up to 2TB via a Micro SD card slot. This gives more than enough space to store all your data.

Coming to the cameras of this smartphone, we absolutely love the 20 MP primary camera with dual-LED flash and a f2.2 lens. With such camera specifications, you don’t even need a DSLR. The 4 Ultapixel front camera lets you make video calls and click amazing selfies. The 2840MAH battery promises an improved battery life. The HTC BoomBoundspeakers come with Dolby surround Sound to give you a great music experience.

The Meizu m1 Note was launched in India on 20th May at a price tag of Rs. 11,999 and can be purchased exclusively at amazon.Thankfully, unlike most phones that are being sold at flash sales, you do not need a prior registration for this one.Here is our first impression of this mid-range Mediatek phone.

Looking at the current trend of Meizu phones, this one is no brainer; sure it comes with a 2K display but is that really necessary? The phone did impress us with its chic design so here’s a closer look at the same.

Design and construction

Meizu has been pretty good at designing decent looking smartphones and the M1 note is no exception. At first it looks like a muscular version of iPhone 5C albeit a cheap knock-off. Most of the front panel is occupied by a 5.5 inch IGZO IPS display. It is surrounded by a two layers of bezels with different thickness. All the physical buttons and ports are exactly where they should be except the power button which is inconveniently placed at the top.

Display and Multimedia

The display of this phone sets it apart because it is difficult to come by such displays in this price range. The 1920x 1080 resolution, the 5.5 inch screen and a sheet of Corning Gorilla glass 3 on top of it make it quite a contender. The outstanding viewing angle and color reproduction due to IGZO panel are like a cherry on top.

This super display does need an equally amazing multimedia experience and the M1 scores on that as well.The loudspeakers provide a decent sound and an immersive multimedia experience.

OS and UI

Majority of the non-expandable multimedia memory is taken up by the OS of the phone- FlyMe (version 4) which looks a lot like a skinned version of Android KitKat. The custom UI of Meizu will need some getting used to especially if you are afirst time user. But once you get used to it, you will certainly find it to be refreshing change. Besides it doesn’t come with a lot of bloatware and installing third party apps feels like a breeze.


Apart from the lack of creativity in design, the phone scores well almost everywhere. This is not to say that it can be called a perfect handset because we can still list a lot of shortcomings. But sweep them under the rug of all the positive features and you have adecent smartphone that performs well.

Sony Xperia M4 Aqua with Advance Features

A lot of people were raving about Sony’s Xperia Z3 last year which came with stunningly sleek design and was waterproof as well. But it came with a high price tag. This time though, the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua seems to be a much more affordable version of Sony’s Xperia series. However, the internal specifications have paid the price and the phone has been toned down a bit. Nevertheless, it still is waterproof, has Xperia’s beautiful body and a 4G LTE.

Though the official release hasn’t been confirmed but Sony is set to launch the phone this Spring and will be available for Rs. 20,675


The design will remind you its predecessor Xperia Z3, and this isn’t bad at all. It has a glass front with identically rounded edges along all the sides. In fact, from some distance, you might not be able to tell the phones apart. But move a little closer and you will find out that the band is of plastic and not metal, as in Z3. It is slightly thicker than Z3 at 7.3mm thick. It borrows other features from Z3 such as a plain back design, minimalist Sony branding and standing-out silver power button. It is waterproof meaning it can survive all the accidental spills or you can take the phone to the bathroom without worrying about dipping it in water. A physical camera button outside means you can take photos underwater. Even the Micro-USB port doesn’t need a rubber port to keep the water out.


The smartphone runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor with an octa-core chip and is supported by 2GB of RAM and powered by Android 5.0 Lollipop. The 5-inch display has a 1280×720 pixel resolution which isn’t much to cheer about because the screen isn’t fully HD. But it does give you a crisp and bright display. Sony claims that the battery can run for two days and the phone sure does have a long battery life. There is a 13 megapixel camera at the back which can take amazing photos. The 5 megapixel front camera also lets you take better selfies.

Micromax’s YU which turned heads with its Yureka is all set to launch its latest Cyanogen based Smartphone- Yu Yuphoria. The new smartphone will be launched today and following in the footsteps of Yureka, the device will be available on and the registrations for the same will start from 28th May. It even carries a lesser price tag than its predecessor; it will be available for Rs. 6999 only.


The sub Rs.10,000category is getting highly competitive with giants such as Xiomi and Lenovo launching budget smartphones with more than decent specifications. Yu has great value for money and it seems to be taking on Xiomi Redmi. The key feature of Yuphoria is its design. The company claims it is a genuinely well-designed smartphone. One look at it reminds you of Nokia Lumia 925 with a plastic rear and a metal frame. But Yuphoria’s rear case and battery is removable. The metal frame comes with soft edges around the corner and gives a good feeling upon being held. The design and 5-inch screen make it a good device to be held and extremely comfortable to be used with one hand. The company says it has a centrally-aligned design. The camera, audio port at the top and USB port are all lined up along the center. The company claims that it reduces the chances of fingers coming in between when clicking photos.

The specifications of the phone will easily blow away the competition. It offers a 5inch screen, 720p display with bright and crisp colors and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor. What’s more is the 2GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage which aren’t found in devices under the same price bracket. It has an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 5 megapixel front camera. The smartphone runs on Cyanogen OS 12 atop Android Lollipop and offers a smooth and crisp performance.

Micromax has released two promotional videos for the smartphone. In the first video, a user accidently drops the device on the floor when someone utters “the Yuphoria is fine” before the camera is pointed towards the floor to reveal a broken tile. Both the teasers point towards the build quality and specifications of the phone.

Lenovo Launched Lenovo A7000

Lenovo announced its A6000 in February and within just three months; it has come out with A7000. For all practical purposes, it seems like an upgrade to A6000. The phone was released on April 15 for a price of Rs. 8,999 and much like its competitors; it would be sold in flash sales. Here is all you need to know about the Lenovo A7000.

Processor, Storage and RAM

It features a 1.5 GHz octa-core processor which has been upgraded to MediaTek MT6752m Soc and paired with 2GB of RAM. Both these features make it a great choice for a phone that performs quickly. As far as storage is concerned, it offers 8GB storage, out of which only 3GB is available to the users. This isn’t much but you can expand it up to 32 GB using a MicroSD card.

Display and Build

The A7000 is much slimmer than its predecessor and has a flat profile at the edges. It offers two SIM card slots, one of which can run on 4G.The 5.5 inch HD display is bright and colorful. Due to its IPS panel, it has a vibrant feel even from different angles. However, the Corning Gorilla Glass protection is missing.

OS and other features

It runs on Google’s latest mobile OS- Android 5.0 Lollipop. It comes with a Vibe UI skin atop it, much like most of smartphones from Lenovo. Another USP of this smartphone is its Dolby Atmos support.It comes with an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. The 2,900 mAh removable battery offers good battery life and can last a day.

Quick Review

This one by Lenovo comes with a sturdy built and an ergonomic design and feels compact when held in hand. The display is great and offers good brightness even at different angles but the lack of a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 is a setback as most of its competitors offer it in this price range. The performance is excellent, especially for this price range and so is the Android interface. The camera is pretty decent but the sound quality is even batter for a surround sound experience. It runs heavy games and applications without any lags, which most of its competitors in this price range lack.

The much awaited follow up to Asus Zenfone 5 which was released last year, has finally arrived in the market and is creating quite a stir. The latest to enter the tech market is Asus Zenfone 2 which can easily be called the best android smartphone by Asus till now. With amazingly hot looks and colors that are sure to get noticed, the all new Asus Zenfone features latest high-end specifications.

Looks aren’t the only thing that is making people rave about it. The 4GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage is another feature we cannot get enough of. The 5.5inch, 1080p display and 13 megapixel camera are other features the phone offers. Here is all you need to know about the latest Asus Zenfone 2.


The design is very similar to its predecessor Zenfone 5 so you can expect the same curved back, metal chin and a plastic body but there are certain changes here and there. The plastic back panel comes with a metallic finish in two series – transfusion and illusion series. The volume key is still at the back but the phone has slimmer edges this time and is 3.5mm at its thinnest point. The back casing can be removed but the battery cannot be replaced. The front panel consists of a 5.5inch screen, 1080p display covered with a Gorilla Glass 3 and soft touch keys. The full HD display screen is bigger and better this time around.


The Zenfone 2 comes with time saving tricks which most of us will like. You can scribble a letter on the phone’s locked screen and the phone will automatically open a pre-destine folder or application. But on the downside, you can only use 5 such commands. You can also shrink the size of the screen by double tapping on the screen with your thumb. The 13 megapixel camera is a blessing and photographers are sure to love that. It is powered by Intel’s quad core 2.3 Ghz Atom Z3580 processor and supported by a 4GB RAM. It comes with a 32 GB internal storage and microSD card slots with 64GB memory. The first sim can support 2G, 3G and 4G while the second sim works on 2G.The phone runs on Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and the custom Android based user interface is very impressive.


The Asus Zenfone 2 is certainly the best Android phone by Asus and the future-ready smartphone will go a long way. With a price tag of Rs. 12,999 it might be the next big smartphone.
