Logitech UE Roll Review 1

Logitech UE Roll Review

Home | Tv | Tv Reviews Logitech UE Roll Review by Gopal Sathe , 28 January 2016 Bluetooth speakers are a hugely popular category now and everybody seems to have one these days. And apart from the entry-level speakers that cost around Rs. 1,000 or so, there are plenty of higher end offerings as well. Some, like the JBL Charge, provide a decent speaker that doubles up as a huge battery pack. The Altec Lansing Lifejacket 2 is nearly indestructible, and the recently launched Logitech UE Roll is waterproof and ultraportable.
Priced at Rs. 8,495, the Logitech UE Roll is certainly not cheap, but it has a unique design that will catch everybody's eye, and it's also waterproof, so you can sling it from the shower head and level up your inner bathroom singer. Gadgets 360 used the Logitech UE Roll for one week to see how it measures up as a speaker, and whether you should buy one. Read on to know what we thought about it.

The Logitech UE Roll is a fairly unique looking speaker…

Sony MDR-ZX110 Review 2

Sony MDR-ZX110 Review

March 3, 2016 PTdrivers 0

When it comes to name recognition and market reach, few audio manufacturers can match the Sony's capabilities. Using a brand name that has been carefully built up over the decades, Sony is one of a handful of companies in India that can sell headphones by the thousand. This is thanks to a huge portfolio spanning various price ranges, from as little as Rs. 590, going up to Rs. 41,990.
One of Sony's most popular on-ear models is also one of its cheapest: the Rs. 990 MDR-ZX110. Boasting Sony's iconic design, the ZX110 is a budget champion and one of the best selling personal audio products in India. Can Sony deliver at such a low budget? We find out in our review.
Design, specifications and comfort
The Sony MDR-ZX110 looks fancy and expensive from a distance, with a combination of matte and gloss finishes on the body that comes across as more premium than anything else we've seen at this price. However, up close it feels strictly budget. The plastic is flimsy and bendy..

InFocus M680 Review 3

InFocus M680 Review

January 6, 2018 PTdrivers 0

InFocus has been a player in India for less than a year now, but it has been releasing a steady stream of new models, most of which we have received well. The US-based company, which specialises in projectors and office communication equipment, is working with Chinese electronics giant Foxconn to put its name on a line of smartphones aimed at emerging markets. Through this relationship, InFocus is trying to carve out a space for itself, and it seems as though the periodic flash sales it holds are receiving quite a lot of attention.
It can't be easy to compete in the Indian smartphone market, where a disruptive new device comes along nearly every other week. Still, InFocus appears to be gunning for the budget segment with a combination of low prices and premium features. Let's see if the new M680 can take on existing low-cost champions and leave a good impression.
Look and feel
We liked looking at the InFocus M680 from pretty much every angle except head-on. The front face is ..

Samsung Galaxy Note 800: First Impressions 4

Samsung Galaxy Note 800: First Impressions

January 16, 2017 PTdrivers 0

After launching Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 in UK and USA, the company has now introduced it in India as the Samsung Galaxy Note 800. On the specs side, this tablet packs in the new 1.4GHz quad-core Exnyos processor, 2GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal flash storage, and one can expand the memory via microSD cards of up to 32GB.
The 10.1-inch display comes with 1280x800p resolution, and there is a 7000 mAh battery on board. Just like the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note 800 is also S-Pen optimised. It will retail at Rs. 39,990.
We were very excited when we saw the specifications of the tablet, and really looking forward to laying our hands on it. We have been playing around this tablet for a few hours now since Samsung had provided a unit pre-launch. However, the actual experience with the tablet has been bit of a disappointment.
Of late, there have been quite a few ivory white tablets in entry and high end tablet segments and Galaxy Note 800 is the latest to join the bandwagon. At just 0.35 i..

Sky Sutra Is Part Shooter, Part Platformer, All Awesome - and Made in India 6

Sky Sutra Is Part Shooter, Part Platformer, All Awesome – and Made in India

December 26, 2017 PTdrivers 0

A corner table of a local bar is hardly where you would expect to check out a brand new, unreleased video game, but that's exactly what happened as we huddled around a laptop and played Sky Sutra. Created by Mumbai-based Yellow Monkey Studios, Sky Sutra has a heavy focus on couch co-op, and is coming to the PC and possibly, the PlayStation 4.
Yellow Monkey has already made a name for itself with high quality premium mobile games such as It's Just a Thought, Huebrix, and most recently, Socioball. Sky Sutra is meant for a new audience, but the developers have made a polished game that makes good use of the controller.

At first, we were skeptical, because Sky Sutra can easily be mistaken for many of the side-scrolling, endless runners we're subject to on Android and iOS. There's a cute looking art-style with colourful backdrops, two boxy characters, and a never-ending carpet suspended in..

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 310 review 7

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 310 review

November 25, 2018 PTdrivers 0

Samsung is probably trying to apply its smartphones strategy on tablets, as the company is launching Android tablets of varied specification in the Indian market. Starting from 7-inch, the Korean manufacture has a tablet for you in almost every possible size – 7.7-inch, 8.9-inch, and 10.1-inch.
The recently launched Galaxy Tab 2 310 is company's first Ice Cream Sandwich tablet to reach India and it is also a device that marks a big shift in company's target market. Instead of going after the iPad buyers, Samsung has realised that it is better to target buyers that don't have the budget to opt for iPad and can compromise a bit on features.
The Galaxy Tab 2 310 comes at almost half the price at which original Galaxy Tab was launched in India and has similar features, but has the reduction in price impacted the overall performance of the device? We find out in this review.
Hardware
Apart from the original 7-inch Galaxy Tab, all the Samsung tablets look identical, with just..

Xiaomi Redmi 2 and Xiaomi MiPad 8

Xiaomi Redmi 2 and Xiaomi MiPad

April 2, 2019 PTdrivers 0

Xiaomi unveiled the Redmi 2 and MiPad for the Indian market on Thursday. The two devices offer the typical Mi package – great specifications at affordable prices. While the Xiaomi Redmi 2 is priced at Rs. 6,999, the Xiaomi MiPad tablet will be available in India at Rs. 12,999.
We got some hands on time with the Redmi 2 and Mi Pad at the launch event in New Delhi, and while we'll reserve judgement until our full reviews next week, here are our initial thoughts on the design and some of the software elements.
(Also see: Xiaomi Redmi 2 Specifications)
The first thing you notice about the Xiaomi Redmi 2 is that it is lighter than the Xiaomi Redmi 1S and overall easier to hold thanks to the edges that appear smoother than before. The build quality of affordable smartphones has come a long way in the last 12 months and the Redmi 2 is a testament to this. The device doesn't feel cheap in any way, though we can't say the same about the Xiaomi MiPad, which comes across as plastic..
