    WTB Fitbit Charge 3 battery

    Your best bet would be to search on Ali Express and get it locally changed from some mobile repair shop.

    Fitness Tracker/Pseudo/Dumb-Smart Watch

    Hi guys, I have been using Fitbit Versa for a few years now. Of late the watch's display is giving out and the battery life is on the wane. I am in the market for a new fitness tracker, primarily steps, heart rate, and sleep tracking. I do not need in-built GPS since I always carry my phone...

    Audio True Wireless (TWS) Earphones / Earbuds - What is your opinion about them?

    Thanks for the elaborate reply. You made a very pertinent point about the inability to get these devices repaired, there just isn't any room for it. Smartwatches suffer from the same issue and e-waste generated from these devices is a big issue. I often go for jogs and the wired ones would be...

    Audio True Wireless (TWS) Earphones / Earbuds - What is your opinion about them?

    I am torn about TWS, maybe it is just my experience but I would love to hear about the experience of others. I was using Anker Liberty Air 2 (link), I was never really able to make them fit snuggly and they would often pop out of my ear on their own. I tried changing the tips, to no avail. Soon...

    Apple TV 4K experience?

    Since there are a lot of people who own an Apple TV here, I thought I'd ask about an issue I'm facing with my Apple TV 1080p with my Mi TV 4K. I am unable to set up the volume control on the Apple TV, i.e. I cannot control the master volume of the TV via the Apple TV remote. I have tried the...

    Front loading or top loading washing machine?

    Descaler - How often do you recommend one should use a descaler? We use our washing machine pretty much every alternate day. Which descaler do you guys recommend? There are so many out there, each company sells their own, and now even Surf Excel sells their own. TIA!

    The Raspberry Pi Thread

    I wasn't sure if I should make another thread, so I'm going to post here since this seems to be the main repository for all things Pi. I want to build a media server and NAS to use in my home network. I will be streaming 1080p content but I want the capability of streaming 4k content in the...

    Yep! That’s what they meant. A broadband, TV and landline.

    Airtel Xstream Fiber Experience (Direct Cities)

    Has anyone subscribed to the Airtel Xstream TV services? They are laying optical fibre lines in my locality and state that they'll be providing TV services with it. I was wondering how the live TV (popular news and entertainment channels) plans are? I cannot seem to find them anywhere or find a...

    Video 50-55" Television - 35k Budget

    Wanted to update you guys, I just pulled the plug on Mi 4X 50" 4K with 2 years extra warranty from Amazon Sale. It ended up costing me ~Rs.28,750/- after the cashback. Last night and earlier today morning, I was considering the Motorola or Nokia TV. But after putting in a bit of research, I...

    Video 50-55" Television - 35k Budget

    I tried that. They only had the 43" in stock and believe it or not, they were selling it 10k more expensive than the price quoted on their OWN website. Absurd. I also tried calling their helpline and they don't have a centralised inventory system, so you have to call each individual store to...

    Video 50-55" Television - 35k Budget

    It seems to be back in stock on Amazon but they're only offering 1 year warranty. I'll wait till it comes back in stock on either Reliance or they offer 3 or 5 year warranty on Amazon or FK.

    Thank you, that was very helpful. Great job on the review. So you'd recommend waiting for the Hisense to come back in stock? Yeah, I've heard that too. Though I'm not sure how it compares to Hisense. TCL is the OEM brand for iFFALCON too. Yep, that is why it is one of the contenders. Ah...
