    Budget Above 40k Is it the right time to buy iPhone 11…?

    Actually they were talking about the improvements in the new ipad air as compared to the last gen. The last gen ipad air had A12. Maybe a reason that they didn't speak about the efficiency improvements is that they didn't want to steal the thunder from the imminent iphone event. Or maybe they...

    Budget Above 40k Is it the right time to buy iPhone 11…?

    There was a discussion on this thread around whether we can see a 40% jump in the performance. I had initially commented that is certainly possible. I was certainly wrong. Based on yesterday's time flies, the A14 improvements are quite underwhelming. 40% jump over A12. Meh. Also, no mention...

    Less than 10K Google Pixel - Is it a good phone and should I buy?

    Absolutely agreed. I am a long time Android user. Always ran custom roms on my phone. Switched to the xs last year and it wasn't a big deal to switch platforms. I would say I prefer Android slight more as an OS but certainly not enough to base a phone buying decision on Android vs ios. Both...

    Budget 15-20K Best Phone Under 20000

    Moto hardware has longevity problems based on personal experience. Wife had a Moto Z that started having screen flicker and battery issues just 8-9 months. They replaced both screen and battery. Battery again went bad a few months after warranty expired. Her sister had a Moto one power, that...

    Budget 10-15K Phone for the parents. Durable + Close to stock or easily rootable

    Unfortunately in the budget segment xiaomi redmi phones are the only ones with decent dev support. Now a days you need to wait for 7 days to get the bootloader unlock permission from the company. Like puns said above, Samsung phones have very limited and non intrusive bloat. That would be my...

    Budget 10-15K Phone for the parents. Durable + Close to stock or easily rootable

    Just curious, why would you want a rootable phone for your parents. Samsung M21, M31 etc would be a good choice for parents. Nokia phones are pretty decent for those who care about the UI. The problem is their lack of quality control. Two out of two friends had a messed up charging port within...

    Budget Above 40k Is it the right time to buy iPhone 11…?

    Ideally they would price the 5.4 inch Iphone at the same price of the current iphone 11. If they price what is essentially an iPhone 12 mini at 80k, then it will be too much. I am hoping that it doesn't happen like that. With apple and toyota though you can never be sure :). They can price it...

    The 'How much can I sell this for?' thread

    The best way to find a price for commonly sold phones like iphones is to look up the price based on the condition of your phone on Cashify. They provide the absolute worst price because they offer the convenience and they have to make money by flipping that. If you sell directly to a buyer. So...

    Budget 25-30k Successor for my OnePlus 3T

    Have unlocked the bootloaders and relocked then plenty of times. It can be done without problems if you relock after installing stock recovery. Never relock with twrp installed. Also, encryption does encrypt the internal storage. Your point about security still stands though. If devices with...

    Budget 15-20K Best Phone Under 20000

    Samsung is the only real option then. Choose one out of M21, M31 or M31s. Minor differences between them. Looks and cameras are slightly better on the M31s. Performance would be similar.

    The 'How much can I sell this for?' thread

    Hey guys..what can i expect for my Poco F1 - 22 months old, 6/64 - physical condition 3/5 - no dents - scratches on the back panel (keys in the pocket kind of scratches) - aftermarket battery with around 3.5-4 hour sot (original battery had swollen) - usage wise it's in a perfect condition - box...

    Budget Above 40k Is it the right time to buy iPhone 11…?

    Lets look at a few things 1. Apple doesn't discount phones middle of the cycle. Happened only once with xr when they had gotten too greedy in the beginning and had to course correct. 2. Iphone se likely won't get discounted much since it released recently. It is currently at 38k. 3. So if the...

    Budget Above 40k Is it the right time to buy iPhone 11…?

    If I remember correctly, there was a 40 % jump in single core performance from A9 to A10. And an even bigger jump in multithreaded performance from A10 to A11. So, I wouldn't put a 40% jump beyond Apple when there are going to be massive efficiency improvements due to shift to 5nm process...

    Budget Above 40k Is it the right time to buy iPhone 11…?

    Definitely should wait. I think the iPhone 11 won't get discounted much because then they would need to manage the prices of iphone SE and iphone xr both. Iphone xr won't be sold below SE and SE can't be discounted since it was recently released. So most likely iphone 11 would head out and...

    Budget Above 25K Please suggest a successor to OnePlus 3

    Good choice. 7t pro is ultra smooth. I didn't go for it when it was time to change because of the heft. But if someone is if fine with the weight, the display is simply gorgeous. At 37k, it is a great deal.

    What exactly is Government of India doing?

    Wow. Thanks for the detailed post. Gives a lot of stuff to delve deeper into. Coming weekend's deep dive topic is sorted :). The "seemingly" wasn't meant to be a jibe, I didn't know that you are an epidemiologist.

    What exactly is Government of India doing?

    Red Dragon, since seemingly you know more about this than what I do I will ask the question that I am unable to comprehend. The serological surveys showed that 23% in Delhi have developed antibodies. Does this mean that over time almost 45L-50L have been infected and cured. Does this mean the...

    Android Where to buy Phone/Tablet Spare parts online?

    Same thing I noticed as well. Was looking for a battery from Aliexpress but almost all decent rated options have shipping cost which is 80% of the product price.

    Android OnePlus Nord is a "budget phone"

    The only issue with rooting is that getting the UPI apps to work is a pain. Otherwise both lineage and PE are very well supported regular updates.

    Budget Above 40k Looking to upgrade my K20 Pro

    Depending on what priority you give to regular security updates, you should consider an S10 lite. Oneplus is good at giving out updates for its flagship phone of the year , since that is what gets covered in all those tech reviews. Once the phone is an year older, the updates start to get...
