Reviewing the Nokia 5

Reviewing the Nokia 5

Nokia with all the hype created for its Android debut has not disappointed us yet.  Starting from the Nokia 3, then Nokia 5, Nokia 6 and the upcoming flagship device the Nokia 8. The devices have withheld the body and the feel of some of their more successful Lumia devices mainly the 1020 and the 950, which is great. Today, our focus is on the mid ranger Nokia 5. Straight out of the bat, the device just looks gorgeous, specially the Tempered Blue version. The device has a 5.2 inch 1280 x 720 HD  polarized display wrapped around an aluminum uni-body.  The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass making the front of the device quite durable to front facing falls.  The display is quite sharp and makes streaming YouTube videos a pleasurable experience. Also, it is quite bright so using it outdoors was never a problem. The finger print scanner is housed on the front on the device which doubles as a home button which I personally do not like, as there were a couple of instances, while unlocking the device, I accidentally kept on opening Google Assistant. which became a bit annoying. The size of the scanner could have been slightly bigger, though understandable why Nokia opted for a smaller sensor, as we live in a world where small to no bezels have started to become a norm. That being said, the sensor is quite decent and works quite well in most cases. Under the hood lies a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor, which is strong enough for most apps to work without a hitch, though some graphic intensive games like Injustice 2 did have a bit of lag. This is also due to the fact the device comes with only 2GB RAM, while most of the devices in its category are now housing 3GB. In terms of storage the device comes with 16Gb on board memory, but not to worry too much as it also houses a microSD card slot upto 128GB of storage. The device has a single speaker in the bottom, but is quite loud and holding the phone horizontally does not muzzle the sound at all which is great. Now talking about the camera’s, the Nokia 5 comes with a 13MP primary shooter and an 8MP camera on the front. One of the highlights about this device is that, both the camera’s have auto focus. This means no more blurred out or selfies or groupfies. The camera performs quite well in day light, specially the auto HDR mode helps in making the colors pop. Both cameras are capable of taking videos in Full HD (1920×1080). Macro shots from the...

Camon CX & Camon CX Air Make A Marvelous Entry In A Grand Ceremony In Lahore

Camon CX & Camon CX Air Make A Marvelous Entry In A Grand Ceremony In Lahore

At a glittering recent event, leading mobile phone brand, TECNO Mobile unveiled its latest camera-centric smartphones, the Camon CX and Camon CX Air, organized at the Royal Palm Country Club, Lahore. The evening was star-studded with prestigious media personalities, famous celebrities, fashion icons, high ranking bloggers and the top leadership of TECNO Mobile which included the General Manager of TECNO Mobile Mr. Stephen Ha, adorning the event with their presence. The launch event’s Red Carpet was hosted by a well-known fashion designer and journalist Sarah Gandapur, who talked to the celebrities and singers including Sana Raj, Hiba Khan, Xille Huma, Dania Sheikh and many more about their views on the TECNO Camon CX launch event. Hosts for the event, the famous Pakistani singer/actor Fahad Sheikh along with stunning Sophie Anjum who is known for her Radio show “Drive on with Sophie” on FM 91, were there to welcome the guests. General Manager of TECNO Mobile, Mr. Stephen Ha, opened the evening with a presentation, highlighting TECNO’s successful journey around the globe. The innovative “Selfie Phone”, was the main highlight of the event. TECNO officials emphasized on how the smartphone world has been rocked with the introduction of Camon CX series. The smartphone uses a smart image sensor supporting 16 mega pixels on the front camera coupled with TECNO’s unique ‘4 in 1’ technology. The smart pixel sensor basically captures the individual images and turns them into signals. These signals are then joined to form a single, brighter and clearer picture. This makes bright selfies in all kinds of environment especially the dark environments. Along with other features such as the customized ring flash on the rear camera which is a unique feature by TECNO only, light speed charge and a full HD screen, it is now easier than ever to take photos on the go. These 30% brighter selfies are effectively paired with a high-end de-noising system, making the pictures vivid and clear, even in situations with dull light. Yet, if that extra boost of light is still needed, the dual front flash does the job perfectly without blurring or distorting images. All of this gives the Camon user a true selfie experience. Camon CX Air was also displayed at the launch event. Both smartphones featured a number of industry firsts. Building trust among the customers is an important factor for an international brand like TECNO Mobile. Keeping this in view, TECNO Mobile has announced a “100-days replacement warranty” for the newly launched Camon CX smart phones series. Currently TECNO Mobile is the only international brand in Pakistan offering such a replacement warranty to its customers. The Camon CX and CX Air were put...

The Nokia 3310 – The Legend is Reborn!

The Nokia 3310 – The Legend is Reborn!

The original Nokia 3310 had become somewhat a legend, some may even argue it was the most durable phone ever built. Throw it off a 2 floor balcony, drive over it, drop on the concrete and it would just keep on soldiering on like a Boss! 17 years down the road and Nokia decided to revive that legend once again. So, call it, nostalgia or call it whatever you like, the Nokia 3310 is a sight for sore eyes! The 2017 version of the Nokia 3310 does looked like the phone has evolved in all this time. The phone’s body is much thinner than its older brother, but has maintained that classic curved look, with dimensions 115.60 x 51.00 x 12.80 (height x width x thickness), on the front you will find a 2.4 inch QVGA polarized colored curved display (240×320 pixels). The keys on the keypad (you don’t hear that, quite often these days) are very soft and its a lot of fun typing on them. On the back of the device you shall find a 2MP camera with LED flash, which to be honest, can take some decent shots in lighted areas or even day time shots are not bad. You do get a 3.5mm headphone jack, so you can either listen to the inbuilt FM radio or listen to your own tunes, thanks to the 32GB microSD card support. The phone itself houses 16MB storage, which is plenty for keeping old text messages, or even keeping a few songs or pictures. Talking about the software the device runs on Nokia Series 30+ (and NOT android as a lot of people had predicted it to be). The UI is quite simple and does have that classic feel to it. While we are on this topic, the Nokia 3310 did come with its share of games and one in particular got a lot of stardom and still does till date. That game was “Snake”, we used to spend hours trying to see how long we could make that 2D snake grow and to our utmost joy Nokia has brought it back as well. The new Snake keeps the classic feel to it, but does add a lot of modern elements to it, like the snake can actually travel diagonally now, which makes the game even more challenging but still fun. The Nokia 3310 comes with a removable 1200mAh battery which promises to last and after our rigorous testing it does actually last a week easily! Even longer depending on how you use it. Other than that the device comes with Bluetooth 3.0 to help you transfer data easily. It comes in two versions a...
