Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 review: 6 months later

The Redmi Note 4 has held up really well after 6 months of use.

6 months after its release, the Redmi Note 4 is still one of the best phones in the budget segment in India. There are plenty of options in this category — the Moto G5 Plus is Motorola’s best effort yet, and the Honor 6X is similarly great. Then we have the likes of Smartron, with its sophomore effort considerably better than its first  [Read More…]

This is the thinnest Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus case on the market (Giveaway + Review)

I’ve been on a bit of a phone case kick recently. I’ve never been big into protecting my devices as I seem to go through them so fast that they never end up picking up wear and tear. I’ve decided to slow down on new devices at this point in my life so I’m doing […]

The Silent Age: Point-and-click done right (Review)

In an era where endless games with pixel graphics abound in the Play Store, it is always pleasant to find developers who focus on providing a different, rewarding, and immersive experience. Even though people think that polished, refined games are reserved for consoles, we’ve seen through the years that developers can also come up with […]

Samsung Galaxy S8 review: Three months later

This is how Samsung’s 2017 flagship has held up after three months of use.

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are still top-of-mind for those looking to buy a flagship phone today, so it’s hard to believe they’ve actually been available for a full three months already. Our initial review was published on April 18, and I’ve been using the phone since that week. Naturally I’ve hopped around to other phones in that time, but continued coming back  [Read More…]

The New Moto E4 is a budget-friendly Nougat machine (review)

The Android spectrum seems to be shrinking more and more with each passing year. Gone are the days between true top-tier flagship (us old-timers used to say “hero”) phones and the budget-friendly devices made for the masses. Motorola– I mean, now Lenovo, is a shining example of this increasing parity in the smartphone market. From […]

Casio ProTrek Smart review: Adventure watch

Casio gets a lot more attention than some other watchmakers on the MrMobile channel, and that’s because it’s one of the few companies doing something different with Android Wear. Last year, I reviewed the company’s feature-packed but pricey WSD-F10 outdoor smartwatch, and this summer’s sequel has ditched the clunky model number for a (slightly) streamlined brand name.

Much else is familiar though; the ProTrek Smart keeps the chunky frame, water resistance and the high price point – not to  [Read More…]

Huawei Watch 2 Classic review: Leather is better

With the Huawei Watch 2 Classic, a metal body and leather strap make all the difference.

It’s no secret that we weren’t big fans of the Huawei Watch 2, a plastic-and-ceramic successor to a metal legacy that left us feeling dejected and a little confused over the company’s seemingly half-baked plans for wearables.

Well, after having used the Huawei Watch 2 Classic for some time, I can safely say the issue lies largely with branding and marketing  [Read More…]

Xiaomi Mi Max 2 review: Bigger is better

With a 6.44-inch display and a massive 5300mAh battery, Xiaomi’s latest phablet is the ideal device for consuming multimedia on the go.

Last year’s Mi Max was Xiaomi’s first attempt at a phone with a screen size over 6 inches. The phone wasn’t the company’s first phablet, however, with the 5.7-inch Mi Note making its debut back in 2015. While the Mi Note was a flagship device, the Mi Max was targeted at the budget segment and  [Read More…]

IPVanish VPN review: A rich set of features that also caters to novice users

IPVanish has everything you love about a VPN, including a lack of user logs, a long list of servers, and features for advanced users.

Virtual Private Networks (VPN) are increasing in popularity due to the ever-eroding nature of online privacy. A VPN can be best described as an encrypted tunnel that protects your data as it moves between your device and the open internet. Not only that, it also helps keeps you anonymous while you go  [Read More…]

Samsung Level On Pro wireless headphones review: Leave buttons and the noisy world behind

Never leave home without headphones.

If I leave my phone at home, I’m gonna kick myself for forgetting. If I forget my headphones at home, I’m going back to get them every time. Headphones are the key to my sanity in a world of obnoxious coworkers, crying kids at the supermarket, and ridiculous noises. A good pair of headphones is as important as a good phone, because I’ll use the headphones just as much, if not more  [Read More…]
