Review: Bose Frames Review

Mohammed Rayan

Since the dawn of wearable technology, we have seen a variety of smart wearable devices but none of them have been extraordinary. Sure, we have seen things like the Bose Soundwear Companion Speaker, but that doesn’t qualify as a wearable as the consensus for a wearable device is something that you carry anywhere without getting a weird look from people around you.

With the Bose Frames, that’s set to change. These new wearables from Bose are bluetooth- enabled sunglasses with speakers and a mic integrated in them, allowing you to listen to music or take calls without taking your phone out of your pocket. This is definitely a step up from the Snapchat Spectacles we saw last year. Continue Reading

2019 iPhone Case Confirms Rumoured Design

Mohammed Rayan

With the 2019 iPhones just 4 months away, leaks have started pouring in from all directions. This one comes from our trusted sources in China. We have our hands on what is supposed to be the case renders which case manufacturers use as a reference to design cases for phones. And since majority of case makers hail from China, we have very good reasons to believe that this is the real deal.

This confirms the rumors that Apple will have 2 flagships this year, apart from whatever they have planned for the XR lineup. What we have our hands on might be perhaps called the “iPhone XI” and “iPhone XI Max”. Continue Reading

Review: Samsung Galaxy S10+

Mohammed Rayan

In a world of smartphones dominated by notches, Samsung was the only company to stick to its industrial design of curved sides and thick top and bottom bezels. While some would say that this looked “old-fashioned” , others would choose words like “practical” and “symmetric”. And now with its latest offering, the Galaxy S10/S10+, Samsung has gone back to the drawing board to create a design that reflects the smartphone of today.

I have spent one month with the Galaxy S10+ as my daily driver and here’s my review. Please note that whatever I say holds true for the regular S10 as well, save for the battery capacity and the display size.

Starting from the front, The S10+ has the new “Infinity-O display” which has a cutout for the front camera in the screen, allowing the bezels to be thinner than ever on any Samsung phone till date. The screen is curved on the sides allowing it to blend seamlessly with the side. The rear of the phone is all glass, housing a triple camera system(which I’ll get to in a bit), also curving on to the sides.

The power button is on the right, which is placed slightly higher than I am used to on other phones. The volume rocker is placed on the left, right on top of the Bixby Key- which can thankfully be remapped this time around. To the bottom of the phone we have a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB-Type C port, and a speaker. The top of the phone houses the secondary noise cancelling microphone. Sadly, No IR blaster this time.

Mohammed Rayan

With the advent of smart speakers coupled with digital assistants, it’s only a matter of time that major tech companies get into this segment of smart home devices. We have already seen an implementation of it by Amazon. The Amazon Echo was released a couple of years ago and since then, there hasn’t been any new development in this segment.

This might change with Apple’s entry into the market, though. Sonny, the man famous for leaking details regarding unreleased Apple devices, has leaked several details regarding Apple’s upcoming smart speaker. According to him, The Cupertino based company is working on finalising the design of it’s upcoming speaker, internally know and “B238”. The speaker is rumoured to run a version of iOS and is going to be marketed as a Siri/AirPlay device. The device will also reportedly include Beats speaker technology along with Alexa-like functionalities.
