The era of Samsung Galaxy S series is a one of the most successful time for the company. Beginning with Samsung Galaxy S2, it created a new benchmark in the history of Android smart phones and the legacy continues. But the incorporation of plastic build phones which made them look cheap when compared to other models like HTC One, M8, iPhone 5S, the Samsung Galaxy S series of mobiles (S3, S4 and S5) got severely criticized for their build quality. Samsung now have to overcome this and yes, they took a major overhaul with the Samsung Galxy S6.

Xiaomi Mi4: Review

The Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is well known for budget phones with higher end hardware. This was proved when they released the Mi3 last year. Now comes the Mi4 which is not likely a polished new Mi3, rather its a new step forward in terms of design as well as features.  The Xiaomi Mi4 is completely different when compared to Mi3 and it also comes at a reasonable price. The Mi4 was released in China long back but I don't know why they delayed its release in India. Finally I got my hands on this mobile for a review.

Micromax YU YUREKA - Huge Features over Cyanogen MOD at a Cheaper price

Micromax is known at offering amazing features in terms of hardware at a cheaper price in India. It provided quad core and octa core processor mobiles accompanied by 2 to 3 gigs of RAM along with decent cameras at a pretty cheaper price. My concern was that these processors failed to reach the appropriate benchmark scores when compared to other processors with same juice. Most of the Micromax mobiles were powered with ARM7 processors and these processors failed to reach up the expectations when compared to Snapdragon processors in terms of speed and performance.

But the new YU YUREKA preferably called as Micromax YUREKA comes with amazing features like Octa core Snapdragon 615 processor along with 2 GB RAM. Most of the features are similar to HTC Desire 820. But the difference comes with price. YUREKA is available at less than half of the price of HTC Desire 820. Lets dig into the details.

Oppo R5: Sneak Peak

The Chinese manufacturers proved themselves that they can give a tough fight to the leading brands with their immensely powerful mobiles at a cheaper price. Mobiles like Xiaomi, Gionee and Oppo have stunned the world by offering high end features at a lower price. The one good thing I personally like is that these mobiles are released globally at once, so that everyone can get their hands on.

Oppo has carved its mark in Android market with some decent mobiles like Oppo find, Oppo mini and many more which had specs and features. Oppo R5 is the latest release by the Chinese manufacturer and it claims to be the thinnest mobile till date. Lets have a quick look.
