Xiaomi’s new sub-brand Poco has managed to create quite a stir with the Poco F1. The handset sets a new benchmark for performance and value for money by packing flagship specs in a device that costs only Rs 20,000/$300. Even better, unlike most Xiaomi smartphones, the Poco F1 is launching in Europe and other major markets as the Pocophone F1 as well.
Xiaomi has been on a roll in India. After the success of the Redmi Note 5 Pro from earlier this year, the company recently launched the Mi A2 in the country. The Mi A2 is the successor of Xiaomi’s first Android One device from last year, the Mi A1. The handset builds on the Redmi Note 5 Pro and offers a more powerful internal and camera experience.
Android Pie comes with plenty of new features and enhancements which aim to deliver an even better user experience than Nougat. In this article, we take a look at our favorite Android 9 Pie features.
Samsung’s latest Note, the Galaxy Note 9, is all set to go on sale in most parts of the world from next week. While the Note 9 might seem an iterative upgrade over the Note 8 and shares the same internals as the Galaxy S9+, Samsung has made a few key improvements that make it an interesting device to own.
The Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ like the Korean company’s previous flagships are made primarily out of glass. Samsung has improved the durability of its latest flagship handsets by using a thicker glass and a larger aluminum chassis on the edge.
Earlier this month, Xposed framework for Android 8.0 and Android 8.1 Oreo was release. This came as a sigh of relief to many as Xposed framework for Nougat took over a year to arrive. This led to a decline in the popularity of Xposed and many developers ended up abandoning their modules for the framework.
The Redmi Note 4 was among the most popular budget mid-range Android devices released last year. While the handset was not available in Europe, the United States and other developed markets of the world, it sold like hot cakes in India, China, and other Asian countries.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 are the Korean company’s flagship handset for 2017. Both feature beautiful and large OLED panels at the front that are curved at their edges.
Samsung’s UI has come a long way since its Touchwiz days. While Touchwiz on the Galaxy S3, S4 and S5 was universally hated for being slow and being filled with bloatware, Samsung has made huge strides with its UI and UX starting with the Galaxy S6. With the Galaxy Note 8, Samsung’s Experience skin has probably reached the point where it offers the perfect mix of ease of use, features and customization options.
