Lenovo recently launched the Vibe K5 Note in India. Successor to its popular Vibe K4 Note, the Vibe K5 Note takes on some popular mid-range handsets like Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 and LeEco Le 2. Despite coming with inferior specs compared to its competitors, the Vibe K5 Note is a great no-nonsense phone.
LeEco is a relatively new entrant in the fiercely competitive smartphone market. The company has limited presence in China, and outside it, India is the only other country where the company sells its smartphones. Recently, the company launched its latest budget handset, the LeEco Le 2, in India to take on Xiaomi’s popular Redmi Note 3.
Chinese OEMs have taken over the smartphone market, but there are very few Android devices in the market that have been executed like the OnePlus 3. The handset’s beautiful aluminium design is paired with powerful hardware and a decent software to offer a top-notch smartphone experience.
There is a saying, ‘Dont trust everything you see; Even salt looks like sugar.’ This is especially true, since we all know at least one person who has made this mistake. Likewise, a good prank on a friend or family members device can sure lead to confusion on their part and hilarity on yours. If you enjoy pulling a good prank, or you just want to have a healthy dose of laughter, check out the following pranks.
For its price, the Redmi Note 3 offers an unbeatable value for money. The handset sports a beautiful unibody aluminum design albeit chunky thanks to a 4050mAh battery, a fingerprint scanner, and a powerful Snapdragon 650 chipset.
For its price, the Xiaomi Mi 5 offers an unbeatable value for money. The handset sports a top-notch build quality with a beautiful glass design, a fingerprint scanner, a powerful Snapdragon 820 chipset, and a 3,000mAh battery that ensures it will easily last through a day of heavy usage.
For countries like India, WhatsApp has become the default way of mobile communication. It has replaced SMS completely and soon might do so for VOIP calls as well. WhatsApp has more than a billion active users worldwide, and it is extremely popular in Asian countries. And while it might look like a simple SMS replacement app on the top, it’s filled with many rich features underneath.
For $199, the Honor 5X packs in quite a punch. The handset features a metallic unibody construction, a 13MP rear shooter, a fingerprint scanner, a 5.5-inch Full HD display, and all-day battery life. You really are going to struggle to find a smartphone that is better than the Honor 5X inside $200, and if you have spent your hard earned money on it, congrats! You sure have taken a very wise decision.
The Nexus 6P was easily among the best smartphones released last year. It did not excel in one particular department, but it did not disappoint in any either.
