    Budget 20-25K Mobile phones within 25k

    Samsung A50s is the refreshed variant of A50 with slightly better specs. Another option in this price range. But then again, redmi k20 offers far more value at this price point.

    Budget 20-25K Mobile phones within 25k

    Having used a phone without a jack for a while, I found it was too much of a headache. I used to keep the converter connected to the headphones. Now if you forget to carry the headphones, you just can't borrow from anyone and start using. Also, charging and keeping the headphones connected at...

    Budget 20-25K Mobile phones within 25k

    Those are good options for someone willing to wait. But the initial flash sales for note 8 would be a headache.

    Budget 20-25K Mobile phones within 25k

    Haha, even I'm on the lookout for a phone for my wife who's upgrading from iphone 6. It's really difficult to convince her for redmi or even oppo/vivo. That's why even I'm looking at samsungs at this price bracket. One plus is a bit costlier and the lack of headphone jack is a no go. Camera and...

    Budget 20-25K Mobile phones within 25k

    Did you consider galaxy A50? Comparing M40 to A50, I think the biggest drawback would be lack of an amoled screen. Apart from that they seem mostly similar (except the notch style and I hate both). OTOH, M40 seems to have 1500/- discount on amazon for ICICI which makes it lucrative price wise...

    English TV series discussion

    I have watched a couple of episodes and it reminded me of Happy Death Day (and of course Edge of tomorrow). It has been receiving a lot of praise so I'll continue to watch what they do with the premise. I'd really recommend Sex Education on Netflix though. Went into it expecting a quirky British...

    Naming reasons for TE IDs and your choice of Strangest IDs

    Amen to that. I might've completed the game thrice. I knew the streets and directions so well I'm pretty sure if I load up the game today, I would be able to drive my way around many known locations/safe houses. Sorry for going OT. I chose renegade as it sounded badass and I have a the same...

    Buy PS4 Pro now or wait for PS5?

    I had played GOW 1 and 2 remastered on PS3 few years back but never got around to play 3. The button mashing gameplay (specially 1) and the camera angles weren't something I enjoyed too much but the scale was epic so the games were fun. Recently I tried GOW3 remastered but I just couldn't...

    Buy PS4 Pro now or wait for PS5?

    They had a lot of good ideas in The Order, and it also looked stunning. But boy was it unsatisfying! The combat wasn't enough, too much cutscenes and the game just .. ended abruptly, after about 6 hrs or so. What a waste. I has borrowed it from my cousin, wouldn't recommend anyone to buy it. I...

    PS4. Have found few deals for Uncharted and Rise of tomb raider on OLX. Will pick one of them.

    Want to avoid Open world games for now. That's why not considering Far cry 5, Assassin's Creed or RDR2. And RDR is quite costly anyway. Just considering whether the current price of uncharted (1300/- around) is worth it since this isn't a full length campaign.

    Moving to Pune.. suggestions

    Unfortunately, public transport's a mess in Pune. With Ola and Uber it has slightly improved but then the traffic situation is really bad. IF your wife works at Hinjawadi, it's better if you find an area which is equidistant from both Yerwada and Hinjawadi so that you guys both don't spend too...

    Rate the Last Movie You Saw...

    Ready Player one - 7/10 Although a decent watch, it's a fairly mediocre movie with references to 80s and 90s pop culture which are fun to catch. A quiet place - 8.5/10 A brilliant premise executed brilliantly. The stakes are set at the start itself which are pretty high and the tension never...

    The Witcher 3 - Discussion Thread

    I just couldn't dodge the flying crows attack, even quen wasn't enough. It just took a major chunk (almost 75%) of the health. And then playing the whole fight from the start was a chore.

    Exactly. Guess the idea behind QTEs is to showcase a cool action sequence which isn't possible with the gameplay. But I'm only concentrating on when and where the next button prompt might appear and actually not watching or enjoying that sequence. So the whole point of it is lost.

    I hate QTEs in any games. Got really frustrated in Tomb raider and far cry 3 and left Heavenly sword halfway. What's worse is when the game takes you back and asks you to fight the boss again if you fail to press a single button:mad:. Vaas from FC3 was the worst where you had to listen to the...

    I know :). But as I mentioned I'm not a fan of RPGs and had left skyrim after 30 hrs or so. After playing Dragon age inquisition and hearing so much praise for this I was actually waiting for good price on the PS4 version. But the GOTY edition never got down below 2k and I finally picked this...

    I've started the Blood and Wine DLC for Witcher 3. I thought Hearts of stone was very good but this is even better. This game just keeps getting better. I don't think I've had so much value in any game recently. This is coming from a person who isn't even an RPG fan.
