Never Settle without One

OnePlus One India specific invites giveaway. Coming soon.

Never Settle on just one. Get OnePlus One



OnePlus has finally made its debut in India with the launch of its much awaited "Flagship Killer" Smartphone One. The Smartphone is exclusively available on Amazon.in at Rs. 21,999 for those who have an invite to purchase.

OnePlus is following this typical invite based model where only those people will be able to get their hands on the device who have an invite either earned via the contests being run on the OnePlus forum or have received a shareable invite from someone who has purchased the One.

After Xiaomi, OnePlus is a new Chinese player in the Indian market and One is their self-proclaimed "Flagship Killer" Smartphone which claims to have the best specifications inboard with an affordable price tag. And at Rs. 21,999, having a 5.5 inch Full HD IPS LCD display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 (401 PPI) and 3 GB of RAM combined with the Quad-core power of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU clocked at 2.5 GHz with internal memory of 64 GB (no expandable memory though), it's not a lie either. Is it?

The One also proudly boasts a 13-megapixel six lens Sony sensor which has a shutter speed of only 0.3 seconds. It also sports a distortion free selfie sensor of 5-megapixel.

The OnePlus One runs Cyanogen 11S which is based on Android 4.4 KitKat but as an effect of the recent partnership of Cyanogen with Micromax, OnePlus had some serious implications which resulted in the discontinuation of the Cyanogen OS with the One in India in the near future. Fortunately, the current device ships with the Cyanogen OS but unfortunately, it won't receive any future updates. But OnePlus has promised that it will release a custom build of Android 5.0 Lollipop to the Indian fans this December lessening the Cyanogen jolt to an extent.

For the folks who are willing to buy this device and are concerned about the after sales service, here's the update. HCL Care will be the exclusive after sales service partner for OnePlus across India having more than 20 service centers.

OnePlus One is a beautiful piece of technology crafted with the innovation which caters to all the modern needs of today's generation. And at Rs. 21,999, it's a true value for money device. Let us know in the comments if some of you have got a chance to encounter it.

Moto 360: Now available on Flipkart

India's biggest online electronic store Flipkart.com has finally revealed the price of Motorola's Android-wear based smartwatch Moto 360 and it's now available for Rs. 17,999. However, the product became out of stock at the time of writing this.


Moto 360, the smartwatch which runs on Android-wear platform can be paired with most of the Android smartphones running Android 4.3 or above. The thing which makes Moto 360 stand out from the crowd is that it looks just like any other normal wrist watch. Motorola has retained a classic wristwatch design with Moto 360 by giving the watch a round dial unlike other smartwatches like LG G Watch and Samsung Gear live. It also comes with a number of watch faces (both analog and digital) to choose from.

Talking about the specs, Moto 360 comes with a water resistant 1.56 inch Backlit LCD display (320x290 pixels) which is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with pixel density of 205 ppi. It has 512 MB of RAM with internal memory of 4 GB.

Moto 360 uses a low energy feature to connect with the smartphone using Bluetooth 4.0 which claims a battery backup of 12 hours. The 360 mAh battery of the smartwatch can be charged wirelessly using the charging dock included in the package.

Why you should buy Moto 360?

This seems to be an imperative question as one needs a very strong reason to spend 18k rupees on a wristwatch. Here's a glimpse of the features of Moto 360 which you would like to know before buying it.

1. Get notifications based on your location, be it weather, flight alerts or traffic. Get the new text messages/emails and missed call notifications at just a twist of the wrist.

2. Send a text, schedule a meeting or navigate using your voice with the "Ok Google" voice command.

3. Stay healthy and keep track of your steps and heart rate with an in-built pedometer.

4. Stay connected with friends using a number of social networks like Facebook and Twitter and never miss out on anything.

No doubt Moto 360 is an appealing and innovative wearable tech gear but spending 18k might be a little hard on the pocket.

Motorola launches Moto G in India

After successive delays, the much awaited budget smartphone from Motorola has finally been launched today in India on the online mega store Flipkart.com. Yes, we are talking about none other than Moto G which was creating massive clutter over the internet for the past few months. 


Moto G is Motorola's first smartphone in India after the company winded up the operations from the country a couple of years ago. The USP of this device is its price which is Rs. 12,499 for 8 GB and Rs. 13,999 for 16 GB model. 

Motorola has priced Moto G very aggressively targeting the budget segment and this is the first time we are seeing a device being launched at almost the same price in India as it has overseas. This proves that India is quite an important market for the global companies in terms of the smartphone business.

Talking about the phone, it's a dual SIM device with internal memory options of 8 and 16 GB. Though, there is no expandable memory still you can count on this device for its other brilliant specifications:

  • 4.5-inch (1280 x 720 pixels) display at 329 ppi with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with Adreno 305 GPU

Android 4.4 KitKat update for Nexus 7 available now


Google had started rolling out the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the Nexus devices a couple of weeks ago but most of the people were complaining about not receiving the update even after the official announcement. Though, Google made it clear that initially the update will be available for the Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013) Wi-Fi only models followed by the mobile data versions of Nexus 7 and Nexus 4, still there was no sign of update on most of the Nexus 7 Wi-Fi devices during the course of the time.

Now there's a good news for all of the desperate "fandroids" eagerly waiting for the KitKat update as the Nexus 7 devices have now started receiving the update. Being a desperate Nexus 7 owner I used to check my device every day for the update and today was the day when I rejoiced the taste of KitKat on my device.

What's new in Android 4.4 KitKat?

It's a 185.3 MB OTA update which brings a whole new UI experience to your device. There are also some major improvements towards multitasking and battery conservation.
