Muviz Navbar Audio Visualizer is amazing if you’re into such things

Music is something we all enjoy, at least most of us. And it’s everywhere, from yourown personal libraries, radio stations, treaming stations, advertisements, movies and so on. Remember playing music on your PC when PCs used to be cool? Those amazing lines or circles floating around in the Windows media player when a song was played? I always turned on the visualizer, finding it much more entertaining than staring at the album art — or worse, the placeholder image when no art was available.

A cool visualizer was a also a pretty feature on the earlier versions of the Sony Walkman app on android. But since smartphones aren’t always plugged like PCs, staring at the screen while music plays wasn’t a thing that made sense. This is where Muviz comes in.  Continue reading “Muviz Navbar Audio Visualizer is amazing if you’re into such things”

The $4 smartphone is real and this is what it’s like to use it.

Four. That’s how many US dollars the Freedom 251 costs.

It’s a shockingly low number, especially if you’re used to doling out $600 for a flagship phone. And despite raising many eyebrows when it was unveiled by Indian company Ringing Bells back in February — with some doubting that the phone would materialize at that price — not only is the Freedom 251 real, it’s also surprisingly decent.

OPPO F1s review: Great hardware, inexcusably old software

The craze for selfies doesn’t need an introduction, especially when phone manufacturers start to give more importance to the camera at the front as compared to the one on the back. After all, why not? The front camera gets used, if not more, then as much as the rear camera nowadays. If you are a selfie-lover, then you would have probably heard of Oppo’s F-series smartphones, which the company calls as ‘selfie-experts’.

Oppo debuted its camera-centric F-series at the beginning of this year with the launch of the Oppo F1 in India. Shortly after, we got the F1 Plus, which was a more premium model. The company has been marketing this new series aggressively, especially in offline retail channels.

It’s been more than six months since the launch of the F1, and to be honest, it feels a bit dated today given how the competition has marched forward. The F1s is a much-needed upgrade, in terms of both design and features, in order to give it a fighting chance.Indeed, with both the F1s and Plus side by side, it’s impossible to know which is which except if you’re looking at specific things — not necessarily a bad thing, since the F1 Plus is a nice piece of hardware. The new F1s is a little larger, a little less powerful, and is making its debut in India for ₹17,999 ($270).

The focus however, continues to be on the front-facing camera. Let’s see how it fares.
