Gionee Elife S5.1 Review

It’s raining slim phones! I just unboxed the Vivo X5Max last month, which is the slimmest phone in the world right now, but for a brief couple weeks, another phone held that title: The Gionee Elife S5.1. A successor to last year’s “slimmest phone in the world” (aka the Gionee Elife S5.5), the S5.1 is

The Xiaomi Redmi Note went on sale here in India about a month ago, followed by the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G late last month, which has a couple hardware differences.

HTC Re Review

HTC RE REVIEW

When the HTC Re Camera was announced, I was immediately intrigued by it. I was a big fan of Sony’s QX lenses but they were way too expensive, and way too slow. The Re camera is similar in the way it works, but much faster, much more convenient, though the quality might not be as

Lumia 535 Review

Now that Microsoft acquired Nokia’s handset division, it was only a matter of time till we saw the branding switch over. The Microsoft Lumia 535 is the first Microsoft-branded, Nokia-less Windows Phone so far. In essence, it is still everything you’d expect from a Nokia Lumia, just with a new brand name. There’s the budget
