I think Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro (2016) might be the best Samsung phone to buy this year

Man, is it tough for flagship smartphones out there this year! While they are not exploding or scratching or making people live without 100-year audio ports, they are having to compete with ‘flagship-killers’ – smartphones which pack specs and performance as good as those of flagships at a price which…

WTF?! Samsung’s Gear IconX wireless earbuds have some pretty un-icon-y battery life

I’m a huge fan of what Samsung has been doing with their wearables lately (I really like the Gear S2 and Gear Fit 2 and would surely consider them is they were compatible with iOS. The bulky and heavy Gear S3 that they recently launched, that’s another story altogether.). That’s…

PSA: Buy any other phone, but not the Samsung Galaxy J2

For all my respect for Samsung’s newest flagship, the Galaxy Note 7 and excitement for the work Samsung is doing in the wearables space, the Korean giant has just stabbed me through the heart with its Galaxy J2 2016. Seeing the success of last year’s Samsung Galaxy J2 and latest…

This one extension is not letting me purge Chrome from my life!

I was a bigtime Google Chrome user and fanboy till last year. The Chrome browser was web-browsing nirvana when it launched in 2008. It was blazing fast and incredibly light on your computer’s resources – a slap in the face of Firefox and other browsers which had become a bloated…
