    Micromax YU Yuphoria launched in India for 6999

    I'll take your word for it. Will report after trying other camera apps on it. Btw, from initial reports, it seems that the Yuphoria has screen and camera issues too.

    Micromax YU Yuphoria launched in India for 6999

    I don't mean to sound condescending, but other than SD615 vs SD410, what's better on the Yureka? I've extensively used a friend's Yureka and it had one of the worst cameras (both front and back) I've seen in recent 6k+ phones. I'm hoping the Yuphoria will have a better camera since it can't get...

    Micromax YU Yuphoria launched in India for 6999

    EDIT: I was wrong about the lack of expandable storage. This looks to be way better than its competition. The Lenovo A6000+ costs 7.5k, while the Redmi 2 has half the RAM.

    Xiaomi Mi 4i pre-orders begin!

    No, it works with all Android devices with 4.4+ and iOS devices with iOS7 and above. I am definitely buying one. Xiaomi kind of stole Asus' thunder yesterday. The Mi4i is a good phone to pitch against the 15k Zenfone 2. I'm not sure how the new SD 615 fares against the Z3560, but the Mi4i...

    ZTE Grand S II launched in India, 5.5FHD, SD800 at Rs.13,999/-

    I don't have anything against ZTE. Hell, my first Android phone was the ZTE Blade, an iconic dev device. Anyway, I appreciate the price point and price to features ratio of this phone. My main concern about the different version is that if there's any amount of dev support for the International...

    ZTE Grand S II launched in India, 5.5FHD, SD800 at Rs.13,999/-

    Why does India always get the inferior (read 'shit') version? Snapdragon 800 vs 801 in the International version 2500mAh vs 3100mAh

    ZTE V5 with 5-inch HD display, 13MP camera launched in India for Rs. 10999

    If this had 2GB RAM, it would be a good alternative to the Zenfone 5.

    FS: Video Card Brand New Sapphire Dual-X R9 270X

    Was this specific card used for mining? I'm aware you've mentioned that you bought 5 cards for mining purposes, but was this specific card used? If yes, for how long? I'm asking this because I'm genuinely interested in buying it, albeit at a negotiable price. Please let me know.

    Budget 41-50k Please help me build a gaming PC within Rs. 40k

    Thanks for this information, mate. I actually did check out that review yesterday and I understand that the Seasonic SII is one of best PSUs in its class. What I still don't understand is why are the others (the ones I mentioned in my earlier post) almost never recommended considering their...

    Budget 41-50k Please help me build a gaming PC within Rs. 40k

    Thanks, Harshil. There's one question that I've been meaning to ask since a long time. Is there any specific reason why the Seasonic SII 520W is so universally recommended? Compared to the likes of the Corsair CMPSU VS550 (3.2k), Corsair CMPSU VS650 (4k) or Cooler Master GX 550W (4.4k), the...

    Once again, thanks a ton crossbow, Harshil and Crazy_Eddy! After reading your posts and weighing my options for the umpteenth time, I've decided to go with the core i5 4590 + R9 270X + Seasonic S12II 520 configuration. As recommended by crossbow, I'll go with 1TB HDD + 4GB RAM initially and...
