  • Yi’s home and action cameras are now available on Amazon India

    Yi’s products finally make their debut in India.

    You no longer have to go through Chinese resellers to get your hands on Yi Technology’s excellent home and action cameras as the brand is now offering its products directly on Amazon India.

    The Xiaomi-backed manufacturer is currently listing two internet-connected home security cameras — a dome camera with a 720p imaging sensor and 360-degree field of view that retails for ₹4,490 and a 180-degree camera with a 720p sensor for just ₹2,999. The dome camera has pan, zoom, and tilt options, and you can configure it to send alerts if it detects any motion in a room.

    As for action cameras, you can choose between the standard 1080p variant with a 16MP sensor that costs ₹6,999, or the newer model that shoots in 4K. The 4K action camera has a 12MP Sony IMX377 imaging sensor, and will set you back ₹17,999.

    The 4K action camera has a 2.19-inch LCD touchscreen and hooks up to Wi-Fi to wirelessly transfer images….

  • Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 review: Six months later

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

    Six 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 phone, and Lenovo’s Z2 Plus has aged very well.

    I used the Redmi Note 4 for a month back when it launched in January and rotated it as a secondary device on and off for the last five months. One of the main advantages of the Redmi Note 4 is the 4100mAh battery, which gives it excellent standby time and at least a day’s worth of use on a full charge. Read on to find out how the device has fared six months after its release.

    Great hardware in a new color variant

    I initially used the gold color option of the Redmi Note 4, but I switched to the matte black variant in March. Of …

  • Snapdragon 836 in a Google Pixel 2 would be the least interesting thing about the phone

    It’s slightly faster.

    The Google Pixel 2 might ship with revised internal hardware from Qualcomm in the form of a new processor, the Snapdragon 836. That’s according to silicon rumormonger Fudzilla, which offers up the following plausible but completely unsurprising info, courtesy of its sources:

    The Pixel 2 phones will be the first to ship with Snapdragon 836
    The chip itself will supposedly be a minor revision to the 835, with a small bump to maximum clock speeds. (Base clock speeds may not increase, or only increase negligibly.)
    There’ll also be some battery life improvements.
    If true, this would mirror the situation of last year, when the first Pixel emerged as the first phone with Snapdragon 821 in the West — the 821 being a minor revision of the 820 chip powering many of 2016’s flagships. Once again, a prominent new flagship would end up using the latest processor from Qualcomm. That’s not the most unexpected thing in the world.

  • [Deal Alert] Get an HTC U Ultra for $499 ($200 off), an HTC 10 for $399 ($100 off), and more as part of HTC’s summer sale

    One of the biggest criticisms about HTC smartphones as of late has been about their prices. For instance, $749 is kind of a lot for a U Ultra when you can get a Galaxy S8 for less. But with HTC’s Summer Sunset Sale, you can chop a couple hundred bucks…

  • You can now order the HTC U11 with 128GB storage and 6GB RAM

    The HTC U11 is getting a new model, and it’s even better than before.

    HTC’s U11 flagship is one of the year’s best phones so far, and the company is doing everything it can to get it into as many peoples’ hands as possible. Starting today, July 25, you can order a 128GB version of the phone in the U.S. for $729, a $70 premium over the 64GB model that’s been available since May.

    Available from HTC.com as an unlocked model exclusively in “Amazing Silver”, the 128GB model also comes with 6GB of RAM, which matches the model sold in China. With the extra memory and storage, the HTC U11 looks pretty future-proofed, a device that people will feel comfortable holding on to for a couple of years at least. It’s also pretty great value against something like the Galaxy S8, which is sold unlocked $725 with 64GB of storage and 4GB of RAM (though it’s on sale right now).

    If you’re looking for something a little less pricey, HTC is discounting some older devices until August 7. The HTC U Ultra i…

  • Porsche Design Huawei Watch 2 launches today for the princely sum of €795 ($925) in Europe and the UK

    The Huawei Watch 2 Classic’s regular price of $369.99 already puts it among the higher end of the Android Wear market. However, its price is somewhat justifiable – it looks good, has a high-resolution AMOLED display, the latest Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor, more RAM than its competitors, a large battery, GPS, and NFC. It’s expensive because it has high-quality components. So what does the Porsche Design Huawei Watch 2 bring to the table for the extra $555?

  • Never settle: OnePlus keeps sending push notification advertisements to its devices

    Advertisements have a time and a place, and the notification tray should be off limits. Several companies have shamefully used advertisement notifications before, including Samsung and HTC. OnePlus has had quite a few mishaps over the past few months, but that hasn’t stopped the company from pushing ads to its own devices.

    The earliest instance I can find of this behavior was about a month ago, to promote the OnePlus 5 launch.

  • Android O feature spotlight: System apps (and apps without icons) get a new icon

    Icons can either make an operating system look very modern or very dated. You could have the most state-of-the-art OS, but the wrong icon will make that OS seem like it’s straight out of 1995. Google knows this, and so it’s updated all of its system apps and iconless apps to show a new, contemporary-looking icon.


    1, 2: The current default icon. 3, 4: DP4’s default icon.

    The last icon that was used for all apps without icons was a green one that depicted the top part of an Android mascot’s body, and it launched with either Lollipop or Marshmallow.

  • Three months later, Google still hasn’t fixed Android Wear’s Google account copy bug

    Android Wear 2.0 has been a mixed bag, to say the least. The platform’s largest update yet hasn’t been popular with everyone, and several notable bugs plus a slow rollout have hindered its success. Another widely-reported bug related to setting up Goo…
