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...

Huawei’s quality & safety ensured by the highest standards

Huawei’s quality & safety ensured by the highest standards

HUAWEI Consumer Business Group, a brand known for putting quality at the forefront of their product development strategy, recently shed light on its quality standards. HUAWEI goes out-of-the-way to ensure that all its products are extremely safe to use and provide the highest quality. Earlier in August 2015, the ambient light sensor (ALS) from ROHM in Awn 4, MateS and Honor 7i had a failure rate of 0.1%. Maintaining HUAWEI’s reputation for quality, all of the smartphones using that batch of sensors were sent back for rework. Even if the ALS fails, the phones can still perform almost all the functions but regardless of the huge cost incurred, HUAWEI still called back all devices. When we talk of HUAWEI – it is the only global brand today, with no record of any exploding-device. HUAWEI has effectively and consistently kept ‘user-safety’ at the forefront of all its operations. No product with even the remotest possibility of posing any health-hazard is ever approved or distributed among the HUAWEI users. Extensive stress-testing is done to ensure maximum safety protocols. “Quality is the integrity and lifeline of Huawei. Huawei employs the craftsmen’s spirit’ to measure its products and ensure zero defects.” said Richard Yu, CEO of HUAWEI’S Consumer Business Group. To ensure the quality of HUAWEI Health App 2.1, it underwent numerous tests by the testing crew. To guarantee the tracking precision, running tests were held in multiple cities. They ran over 1,000km, equivalent to 24 marathons. To guarantee the heigh tracking precision, the crew climbed up and down over 1,200 stories of stairs, equivalent to climbing up the Burj Dubai on foot for 7 times. To guarantee the precision of step count, the testing crew walked over three million steps covering a total distance of over 2,000km, equivalent to walking back and forth for 10 times between Shenzhen and Guangzhou. HUAWEI has also opened the doors to its “Device-Testing facilities”, in order to boost the consumers’ confidence in its products. Consumers can now be sure that maximum quality is ensured through due diligence for each one of their...

The world’s leading technology company Xiaomi recently launched the Redmi 4X in Pakistan  through distribution partner SmartLink Technology. The launch event took place at Ava Gardner, Faletti’s hotel, Lahore and was hosted by none other than the charming and witty Taimur Salahuddin AKA Mooroo. Audiences were provided double dose of entertainment with the hilarious jokes of Mooroo and scintillating performances by Pakistan’s leading band Noorie and Nescafe Basement band with Altamash Sarver who made audiences dance to their favorite tracks. The stunning Mira Sethi also made a special guest appearance who was all praises for the newly launched Smartphone, equipped with the latest technology in such an affordable price. Smartlink Technologies Marketing Director Ahmed Butt was quoted as saying, “Majority of the Pakistani consumers prefer to purchase smartphones remaining in this price bracket and thus this bracket has always remained a key market for all brands. We have confidence that Redmi 4X will be a hit within its own price bracket, as the smartphone surely outperforms its competition in the market.” Redmi 4X features a full metal body, is the slimmest in design at just 8.65mm of thickness and weighs a mere 150g. Equipped with a 4100mAh battery, Redmi 4X has an impressive standby time of up to 18 days! Bid those dying battery issues adieu!

Every Redmi 4X will ship with MIUI 8 which builds in several technology breakthroughs such as being able to clone apps and manage multiple accounts on the same phone. This means that users can have two instances of a messaging app on the same phone that correspond to different accounts, removing the inconvenience of having to log in and out on the same app. With MIUI 8, users can also split their smartphones into two accounts. This means that a different password or fingerprint can allow you to access a different home screen entirely, with independent apps and data. According to their needs, users can choose to merge certain data such as the address book and their call log history.
