There are many variables to consider from outline and working framework to security and solidness. We consider each part of the cell phone to decide if it’s a decent purchase for you, or in case you’re in an ideal situation with something different.

1. Samsung Galaxy S8:


Samsung’s Galaxy S8/S8 Plus is the best telephone for a great many people. It’s accessible over each of the four US transporters and opened. It has the best show on any cell phone at this moment, a head-turning, premium outline, a top notch camera, dependable battery life, and quick execution. Because of Samsung’s notoriety and the help of each of the four transporters, the S8 additionally has a lot of embellishments, from cases to battery packs to remote chargers, accessible to it.

The S8 comes in two flavors: the standard model and the bigger S8 Plus. Choosing the two fundamentally comes down to whether you need a bigger 6.2-inch screen or a more reasonable in-one-hand 5.8-inch show. Everything else (aside from value, the Plus model is about $100 more) is the same between the two models.

2. Apple IPHONE 8/8 PLUS:


Here we have the iPhone 8 Plus – likely a standout amongst the most foreseen cell phones of the year. Some vibe its sheer size makes it precarious to hold, yet there’s no denying Apple’s wonderful 5.5-incher is a victor. In the event that you lean toward iOS to Android and you favor getting the best cell phone around, this should be your first decision… that is, until the iPhone X turns up.

In case you’re not into the S8’s surprising outline or are bolted into Apple’s biological community, at the present time, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are the best alternatives for you. The two models have awesome form quality, sharp, shading exact screens, and simple to-utilize programming. The bigger 8 Plus gives you a greater screen, as well as offers a double camera framework that takes into account one of a kind photographic traps. The two forms have amazingly quick execution because of another processor, and the capacity to remotely charge — a first for any iPhone.

3. Google Pixel:


We can’t reveal to you how close it is between the Google Pixel, iPhone 8 Plus and S8 for the title of ‘best cell phone on the planet.’ All three are awesome, however the smooth outline, and astounding screen puts the Samsung ahead of the pack. The Google Pixel is as yet an astonishing cell phone – particularly on the off chance that you organize camera quality and need programming straight from Google.

4. Google Pixel XL:

Google Pixel 2XL

We can’t reveal to you how close it is between the Google Pixel, iPhone 8 Plus and S8 for the title of ‘best cell phone on the planet.’ All three are incredible, yet the smooth outline, and stunning screen puts the Samsung ahead of the pack. The Google Pixel is as yet a stunning cell phone – particularly on the off chance that you organize camera quality and need programming straight from Google.

Google’s Pixel XL is the best Android telephone we’ve ever utilized. It’s the primary Android telephone in history that can completely rival the iPhone in a few key regions: security, programming refreshes, client administration, and programming outline. It’s so great we named it the best cell phone of 2016. To be sure, in case you’re an Android fan who will never purchase an iPhone, the Pixel XL is the best telephone you can purchase. Here’s the reason.


5. HTC U11:


The HTC U11 is an extraordinary telephone, one that plays to its qualities and offers a dazzling sound affair and an incredible camera. The sparkling back won’t not be to everybody’s tastes, but rather it’s very much created and the 5.5-inch quad-HD LCD show is extraordinary. The BoomSound speakers are incredible, as well, however the absence of an earphone jack means you’ll be stuck utilizing either the included dongle or a couple of USB-C earbuds. Gratefully, HTC incorporates some conventional dynamic commotion wiping out buds in the container.

It’s awesome to see HTC advancing with the squeezable edges, which make interfacing with the gadget substantially simpler, and the insignificant changes they’ve made to stock Android are stunning, making this one of our most loved cell phones in 2017.

6. LG G6:


LG has at last made a gorgeous, premium cell phone free from contrivances. There are a considerable measure of highlights we adore here – that wide-point screen is incredible, the bezels are modest, and the double camera is truly helpful. Essentially, we truly delighted in utilizing it.

In any case, it’s a long way from an immaculate telephone. LG has utilized a 2016 chipset, so it’s not the most proficient cell phone accessible, and the skin over Android Nougat isn’t the best out there. It additionally feels less premium than its adversaries, with a marginally empty feel to the back packaging.

7. OnePlus 5:


Hoping to irritate predominance by the enormous brands is OnePlus, who surprised the portable world in 2014 with one objective, to be the leader executioner. We believe it’s fifth cell phone, the OnePlus 5, has at long last accomplished that objective.

With a marginally more costly sticker price of £449, you’ll get all the mod-cons of substantially more costly handsets, including a HD screen, helping quick unique finger impression sensor, a not too bad double camera and insane effective specs.

8. Moto G5 Plus:

Motorola’s Moto G arrangement has been broadly prevalent on account of its sub-$200 costs. The G5 Plus is the second since the Lenovo procurement, and keeping in mind that it’s somewhat pricier, it surely can’t be left off this rundown, particularly since the fundamental Moto G5 isn’t being sold in the U.S.

For $230, the base model of the Moto G5 Plus offers a 5.2-inch, 1080p screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, and 2GB of RAM. There’s additionally another, metallic outline that brings a more costly feel. You can choose 2GB of RAM and 32GB of capacity, or move up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of inward stockpiling, for an additional $50. Gratefully, if capacity is an issue, you can extend it by means of the MicroSD card opening.

9.Moto Z2 Play:


Motorola may have lessened the battery limit on the Moto Z2 Play from its antecedent, yet despite everything it offers the best battery life of any cell phone we’ve tried. In our audit, after overwhelming use, we were left with 45 percent by 6 p.m. — the 3,000mAh battery will effortlessly most recent two days with direct to light use. The Moto Z2 Play additionally includes Motorola’s Turbo Power quick charging innovation, which implies it will squeeze go down rapidly in case you’re in a rush.

The cell phone is fueled by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 626 processor, and keeping in mind that it won’t play graphically-serious diversions impeccably, it ought to effectively smash ordinary assignments. The processor is matched with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of interior stockpiling, or you can choose the model with 4GB of RAM, which will net you 64GB of capacity.

10. iPhone SE:


On the off chance that you need a littler telephone, the iPhone SE is the ideal decision. It packs the vast majority of the treats from the more established iPhone 6S (not the iPhone 7), but rather in a shell that can be utilized effectively in one hand. The same 12MP camera sits on the back, while the same A9 CPU and 2GB RAM control the gadget. This makes it super quick and a joy to utilize.

Touch ID and Apple Pay are here as well, similar to the bringing Rose Gold shading plan. 3D Touch, however, doesn’t make the cut. The littler show can’t coordinate the opposition for determination, yet it’s still sharp, brilliant, and pixels are hard to spot.

October authoritatively has a place with Google now. Precisely a year after it took the wraps off its first completely homegrown Pixel telephone, Google is back with the Pixel 2, and it’s taking it a radical new way.

Make that two new bearings. While a year ago’s models were bigger and littler adaptations of a similar telephone, Google has made more division between the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Be that as it may, while the two telephones look a ton changed outwardly, they still both offer a similar ordeal.

The tech monster is required to uncover the Google Pixel 2 close by a bigger XL rendition. The telephone is relied upon to include the new Android Oreo working framework, alongside a bigger bended screen and an all the more intense processor.

Google amazed numerous with its first cell phone outlined in-house, however now it has all the earmarks of being multiplying down on telephones, purchasing out an extensive lump of HTC’s cell phone division quite recently a month ago.

The discharge, which comes a long time after Apple uncovered its premium iPhone X cell phone, additionally has Google tipped to uncover a large group of new equipment, including a smaller than expected form of its Google Home savvy speaker, a refreshed Daydream VR headset, and a spic and span premium Chromebook.

Google’s unique Pixel cell phone is good to the point that it could be anything but difficult to neglect to check the most recent gossipy tidbits encompassing its successor, which we’ll call the “Pixel 2” for the time being.

While the gossip process doesn’t concentrate as much on Google’s Pixel telephones as much as it does on mainstream gadgets like the following iPhone or Galaxy telephone, there still are a couple of supposed subtle elements worth sharing.

By and large, it would appear that we can expect some conventional changes over the first Pixel, including its camera and outline. We’re likewise anticipating that Google should fill a few holes in highlights, similar to water protection, in the up and coming Pixel 2, as well.


Google Pixel 2 Release date:

Google has released a Youtube trailer called “Entertaining you ought to ask”, while bulletins have been showing up approaching clients to “Solicit more from your telephone”.

Both say to stay tuned for Wednesday, October 4, so we can anticipate that Google will dispatch its new items on an indistinguishable date from a year ago.

we can anticipate that deals will start around a comparative time. A year ago it went at a bargain on October 20.

Another kind of Android 8 Oreo:

Another initially gadget will demonstrate logbook occasions, movement, or flight status at the highest point of your telephone, and the hunt bar is currently arranged underneath the dock. There are likewise new Assistant highlights incorporated with the new Pixels, for example, communicating to Google Homes and schedules. The telephones will likewise highlight a see of Google Lens, which utilizes the camera to convey AI highlights to our general surroundings. 

Sound and video upgrades:

In any case, Google hasn’t forgotten audiophiles vulnerable. On the front of each telephone you’ll locate a coordinating pair of speaker barbecues above and beneath the screen. That is not only for symmetry—Google has incorporated stereo speakers with the new Pixels. There’s additionally another arrangement of earbuds, Pixel Buds, that bring touch controls, Google Assistant, and a pocket-sized charging case.

In any case, the star of the Pixel telephones is the camera. While the specs of the cameras themselves aren’t too not quite the same as unique Pixel, with a solitary 12MP, f/1.8 focal point with 1.4μm extensive pixels, the current year’s models do bring optical picture adjustment. In any case, as with a year ago, the genuine advantages are in the Pixels’ handling ability.

Pixel 2 cost and accessibility:

On both Pixel 2 telephones, Google has increased the base stockpiling to 64GB, which ought to be bounty for all the photographs and recordings you will bring with the new camera. The two telephones additionally have a 128GB choice at the top of the line, which costs $100 more.

Much the same as a year ago, the Pixel 2 won’t come shabby. The 64GB Pixel 2 will cost $649 and the 128GB model $749. The Pixel 2 XL is somewhat more costly than a year ago, beginning at $849 for the 64GB model and fixing off at $949 for 128GB. The Pixel 2 will send October 17 while the Pixel 2 XL won’t deliver until November. All preorders will get a free Google Home Mini.

Apple’s iPhone X is as much as two and half years in front of its opposition, a main investigator has guaranteed.

Be that as it may, the most recent gauge from Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI says Apple still can’t make enough of the handsets because of specialized issues with the forward looking TrueDepth camera it uses to filter individuals’ appearances.

The firm brought down its assessments of iPhone X shipments in 2017 to 30-35 million units from a past gauge of 40 million because of the issues.

Fame examiner Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities said Apple’s rivals will probably require no less than over two years to imitate the TrueDepth camera’s usefulness and client involvement in a financial specialists note acquired by MacRumors. The framework is the way to Apple’s new “Face ID” biometric security innovation, Animoji, and a few other new highlights.

Kuo’s striking forecasts come soon after he watched Apple’s legitimate showings of the camera framework, which influenced him to accept significantly more that the opposition won’t have the capacity to coordinate it. He already said that he thought match telephone creators would require maybe a couple a very long time to get up to speed.

Kuo’s new forecasts about the opposition accompany marginally bring down desires for the iPhone X’s achievement for the time being. KGI updated its 2017 transportation gauges from 40 million to 30 to 35 million units — yet the lower projection was expected just to the proceeding with worries about the X’s creation, not request. Kuo composed that he has “full certainty” that the X will be a long haul achievement.

Apple lurched somewhat and general society shared a merry snapshot of schadenfreude when executive Craig Federighi attempted to demo FaceID in front of an audience amid the X’s turning out gathering, yet the organization asserted that the come up short was really the consequence of the framework doing its business to require a password after an excessive number of unconfirmed open endeavors.

When shoppers have an opportunity to look at the TrueDepth for themselves, we’ll check whether it can satisfy all the buildup. In the event that Apple fans grasp the iPhone X’s facial following highlights and FaceID usefulness as they did when Touch ID appeared with the iPhone 5S, contenders confront the tough undertaking of building up their own particular turn on the tech to get up to speed.

With a specific end goal to make up for lost time, adversaries will either need to assemble comparable innovation or secure littler firms concentrated on it.

At its iPhone squeeze occasion a month ago, Apple tried contrasting Face ID with comparable innovation utilized as a part of adversary gadgets. The organization said that it can’t be tricked into giving clients access to telephones in view of photographs or by checking human-looking covers. What’s more, dissimilar to Android-based facial filtering choices, it is more secure than its Touch ID unique finger impression sensor in the iPhone 8.

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 confront checking highlights have been scrutinized for being tricked by filtering photographs, giving a window that programmers can use to hoodwink the innovation. Samsung, in any case, has said that its face scanner is secure.In terms of offers, Kuo trusts the iPhone X will be in enormous request by buyers. He assesses that Apple will pitch 30 million to 35 million of them throughout the following year.

Apple disclosed the most recent emphases of iPhone at their cutting edge Apple Park grounds in Cupertino, Calif., Tuesday morning.

In the interim in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait and Qatar pre-arranges likewise open on September 15, however, the iPhone 8 discharge date is set for September 23 in the UAE and September 29 in the rest.

Apple says the iPhone 8 has an ‘all-new’ outline, with a full glass back, and it comes in three hues: silver, space dim, and another gold wrap up.

There’s moreover an aeronautics audit aluminum diagram, while Apple ensures the iPhone 8 gloats the hardest glass ever on an iPhone – and it’s extra water and clean sheltered.

Xiaomi Redmi 1S Review: Everything That You Want And More

the news chef Xiaomi-Redmi-1S-Review-Everything-That-You-Want-And-More

When Xiaomi entered India, no one really expected the brand to make a name for itself in just 5 months (for good and worse). After doing pretty well with its flagship Mi3 smartphone, they switched focus towards the affordable mobile space in India, which is a real crowd puller. So when the Redmi1S was announced, and much to our surprise, priced lower than the printed price at Rs 5,999, heads were shaken and a big question was asked: have they managed to pack just about everything at this price? The answer follows.

What is it?
You’ve asked for a lot of features at an affordable price point and Xiaomi delivers that to you, yet again in the form of Redmi 1S. It’s got the display, the power and the camera that you’ll pick up any day for this price.

Who is it for?
That’s the best thing about Rs 5,999. Anyone can use it, even the first timers with smartphone might be tempted to try out their luck with the Redmi1S. No EMIs, just pure luck is all you need to get this phone.

Now, let me get this straight. If you want a drop-dead gorgeous phone for this price, then Redmi 1S is not for you. It’s not the lightest and definitely not the thinnest around but still, there’s more to a phone than just ridiculing for how it looks. Redmi1S is crammed on a regular-shaped 4.7-inch body with a not-so-glossy-and-ugly plastic body that doesn’t look cheap even a bit.

You’ll find the Mi branding at the bottom and the rest has been left as-is so that you can complement the phone’s simplicity. One thing we did not like about the Redmi 1S was its physical buttons missing out on the back-lit aspect. If you’re in the dark, good luck finding your way through the Back, Home and Settings option, positioned right below the display.

For a sub $100 phone to get the HD i.e. 1280x720p resolution is a mean feat, but giving out Asahi Dragontrail glass protection too, is just ridiculous. The display, thanks to all the protection is highly durable to all kind of scratches, even when inside your pocket and this coming from someone, who has a lot of stuff always, makes for a viable case with regards to durability. It’s bright, crisp and good for gaming, reading content on the web and even movies. Outdoor visibility might not be the best and the reflective nature of the display can be irritating at times but all in all, there’s not much to complain about the HD quality on offer. The closest you’ll get to HD in this range, is a 960x540p on the Moto E.

If you thought display was the end then you’ll be surprised with the power that Redmi 1S holds under its hood. It packs a 1.6GHz quad-core Snapdragon chipset with 1 GB RAM and offering 8 GB internal storage, expandable up to 32GB. It’s got the power to run multiple apps, web browser, listen to music and manage to play games as well. Movie watching isn’t a bad experience either, but not sure if you would watch one on a phone of this size. However, it’s not all rosy with the Redmi 1S. Constant heating can be bothersome to many and end up being a deal breaker, when you compare the phone with Moto E and Zenfone 4. The chipset seems to have been under-clocked to give the phone a balanced experience and that’s impacted the core performance. You can play games like Asphalt 8 and FIFA on the phone, but not without its share of issues.

Software/ Interface
Xiaomi Redmi 1S just like the Mi3 is powered by MIUI 5 running over Android 4.3 Jelly Bean version. There’s a lot to like about the interface. Firstly, it’s nothing like the custom Android versions we have seen on devices from the likes of Samsung, Sony and HTC among others.

MIUI has a clean, elegant look about it and everything has a reason for its availability. Add to that, you’ll find the Lite Mode on Redm1S, which is a perfect option for elderly users in your household. MIUI has its own set of drawbacks but none so major.

It’s hard to find a decent snapper on a phone that costs less than $100 and Xiaomi did just that. Redmi 1S comes fitted with an 8MP rear snapper with a capable LED flash. On the front side of phone there’s a 1.6MP camera, basic but quite good in the range. The rear camera offers decent clarity and image detail in daylight not in low light; but the image quality is better than any other phone in this segment.

We tried out the video option as well and the results were quite satisfactory, albeit a lot of heating on the sidelines became a common pain point.

This is probably where Xiaomi should have done a bit more research and development. The Redmi 1S is powerful, but the phone’s not capable of lasting through that power, over the course of day. During our basic video playback tests, the phone managed to last us for over 5 hours. While using the Redmi 1S as primary phone, we managed to get the battery juiced up for around 13 hours in a day. Compare that with Moto E and Zenfone 4, the Redmi 1S has scope for improvement on the battery front.

The good
Refreshing Android interface

Tragic flaw
Painstake heating
Battery life

Should you buy it?
Oh yes. That’s a no brainer. Redmi 1S is your’s if you dearly want it and we don’t see why one wouldn’t want to own it. Sturdy body, bright display, good cameras and a new name to call for. But if you’re sure about the China-aspect about Xiaomi and buying phones online (flash sales buying), then Moto E is the next best option.

Display: 4.7 inch; 1280x720p
OS: MIUI 5 over Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
CPU: 1.6 GHz quad-core Snapdragon
Storage: 8 GB, expandable up to 32 GB
Cameras: 8MP (rear), 1.6MP (front)
Battery: 2000 mAh

Android 5.0 Lollipop may be coming to Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Google’s new Android 5.0 Lollipop is one of the biggest visual updates to Android we’ve ever seen. It brings a ton of UI enhancements, updated security and encryption settings, and much, much more. It’s been confirmed by many OEMs that the software update will come to most current devices on the market today, but the devices that are getting to the 2-year-old mark aren’t necessarily guaranteed the update. In fact, it’s quite standard for device manufacturers to either provide updates to their devices for roughly two years or provide at least two major software updates.

With all that said, when the official Finnish Samsung website updated their “device update” table today, it took us by surprise. The table reads that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2, a device that was launched in 2012, will receive the update to Android 5.0.

Android 5.0 Lollipop is coming to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Samsung hasn’t always had the best track record when it comes to software updates, though they seem to be much more aggressive with the update to Lollipop. Either way, when we see a device that is slightly more than two years old scheduled to get a big software update like this, we have to wonder if it’s valid or not. Since this information comes to us from Samsung’s official website, we feel we need to believe it to some extent, but there are a few other factors in the table that warrant concern.

Looking through the update table, we see obvious devices that are in line for Lollipop: Galaxy Note 4,Galaxy Note Edge and the Galaxy Alpha. However, next to the Galaxy S5 (which has already started to see the update), they’ve listed the update as “no information.” With that said, the table obviously isn’t complete quite yet. That means theres always room for error, and the Note 2 Lollipop update could just be a simple mistake on Samsung’s part. We’ll take a look at the table in the coming days to see if any information changes, but for now, Galaxy Note 2 owners, it looks like a Lollipop update could potentially be in your future!

We’re unsure as to when the Note 2 will receive the Lollipop update, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted if we hear anything.
