Haste makes waste! You have come to know about the specifications of the Sony Xperia L1. But you are still not advised to buy it without knowing about its features. More importantly, you should spend your money to buy it only if there are features or specification that you desire.

New Features of the Sony Xperia L1

Sony has decided to take the bull by the horns. Sony is generally known for better picture quality instead of creating smart experiences with new features. This has pushed the company into the corner. Taking this into account, Sony has now added many new features to make your smartphone experience brilliant like never before, thanks to the incorporation of new features in Sony Xperia L1. Let’s discuss them below in detail and see how they can make life easy for you.

5.5 inch Display Size:

This is one of the best features of this phone. Its display is Multi-touch, IPS LCD Capacitive, supports 16M colors and 720*1280 pixel screen resolution and provides protection against scratches. Its display is intuitive enough to make sure you get the best video/photo viewing and gaming experience like never before. Spend your money on it if you want its loop surface design and narrow borders which let you share your favorite content with your contacts while you’re viewing your favorite videos/photos or even while playing a game.

Only a 2620 mAh Battery:

There is nothing impressive about the battery capacity. It is possibly a setback for smartphone users. Sony definitely needs to understand that users nowadays prefer smartphones providing more battery life than a 2620 mAH battery can offer. This is not the must-have feature that any smartphone lover would find in Sony Xperia L1. Gone are the days when camera quality and looks are the primary factors used to inspire users to buy a smartphone. Considering its battery life, business class people will have to charge it at least twice a day, which is sometimes difficult to do. Sony needs to consider supplying it’s smartphones with more than 3000 mAh battery size.


Do you like to listen to high quality music? Incorporation of Spotify will take your music taste to the next level. The Sony Xperia L1 provides you this feature in your hands to make sure you get access to the world’s best music albums and artists just by touching the Xperia L1 with your fingers.

Camera Quality:

Sony smartphones provide camera quality like no other smartphone manufacturer in the world. A 13 MP main camera and 5 MP Selfie shooter will impress you with features like an auto focus ISO 3200, F2.2 lens, 3X clear image zoom and a 24mm wide-angle lens F2.2.

Final Thoughts:

This device could be very expensive like all other Sony smartphones. Taking its battery life into consideration, businessmen should think twice before making this purchase. It will be available in black, white and pink colors. Sony Xperia L1 is perfect for selfie queens and social butterflies.

Samsung Unveils Two New Galaxy Smartphones

samsung Galaxy

Samsung has recently unveiled its brand new Galaxy series smartphones, the Galaxy On5 and On7. With this release, the company has declared these two models as value for the money devices and planned to target the young consumers. Priced aggressively, the new Galaxy series smartphones pack features including Ultra Data Saving (UDS) and MixRadio.

Look and Feel

The South Korean company released these budget handsets after months of analyzing customer needs and working on the new model. Both the smartphones have identical front and back panels. Apart from the screen size, there is not any noticeable difference between the devices. The use of metal frames has given the handset a sturdy feel. The signature physical Home button is just below the screen on both the phones. The volume rocker is located on the left while the power button is on the right. When compared, Galaxy On5 is easier to hold using a single hand.

Specifications and feel

The Galaxy On5 proudly features a 5-inch HD 720x1280p TFT display that is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1.5GB of RAM. It sports an 8MP rear camera and 5MP front camera having decent picture quality. It holds 8GB of built-in storage that is expandable up to 128GB. Various connectivity options on the Galaxy On5 include 4G LTE, Micro-USB, 3G, Bluetooth, GPS and Wi-Fi b/g/n. The phone weighs 149 grams and owns a 2600 mAh battery.

On the other hand, the Galaxy On7 features nearly identical specifications to Galaxy On5, except for the larger screen size, display, different processor, high-resolution camera sensor, and larger battery. Galaxy On7 sports a 5.5 inch HD TFT display and runs on a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with 1.5GB RAM. It clicks brilliant pictures with a 13MP rear auto focus camera and a 5MP front selfie camera. Galaxy On7 is similar to the Galaxy On5 in terms of built-in expandable storage. The battery size is 3000 mAh, which is larger than On5 and measures 151.8×8.2mm, weighing 172 grams. Running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, both the handsets are skinned with Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.


While browsing through the default apps and menu, one of the major takeaways is that there is a lot less of Samsung’s bloatware than present in other models. Both smartphones have very few pre-loaded apps but there are no Microsoft apps present. Moving towards the camera, it is quickly launched within a few seconds of touching the icon. The camera is uncluttered and switching between the cameras is quick and easy. Images taken with the Galaxy On7 were crisp while those with On5 were quite blurry when zoomed. Both the devices are facing stiff competition, but they are worth their costs.

Nexus 6P Outshines its Competitors

Nexus6Google’s Nexus 6P is finally out. The phone is decent and is an improvement of its predecessor.


Nexus 6P is a large and heavy phone but thankfully, Nexus 6P is manageable. The screen size has drastically dropped from 5.96 to 5.7 inches. The handset’s dimension has reduced in both weight and thickness. This has finally allowed the new phone to sit comfortably in the hand. Through the round edges on the rear, it easily snuggles in your palm, yet it becomes tricky to reach everywhere on the screen with one hand. Surprisingly, the metal unibody has provided a premium appeal to the handset.


The smartphone boasts a screen size of 5.7 which is quite shiny, with a colorful band and extremely responsive under the touch. Everything seems exceptionally sharp on the screen with the QHD resolution while colors turn vibrant with the AMOLED technology. The screen is protected with Gorilla Glass 4 that helps it survive a number of knocks, and is coated in fingerprint and smudge resistance. The screen display runs at a 1440p resolution that translates to 518 pixels per inch. Design wise, the smartphone was made of “aeronautical-grade aluminum” and has come in three colors – graphite, frost, and aluminum, giving it a premium feel.


Nexus 6P features a rear camera of 12.3MP with laser autofocus that instantly focuses on objects. In also incorporates a slow-motion mode that captures 240 frames per second and 4K video recording. With regards to the front-facing selfie camera, it sports an 8MP camera with an f/2.4 aperture and HDR+ provided for HD selfies for your Instagram account.


Under the hood, the phablet features a Snapdragon 810 V2.1 processor with 3GB RAM which is another impressive specification in the Nexus 6P. The phone comes preinstalled with Google’s all new Android 6.0 Marshmallow, that brings along features including Doze mode, a battery saving mode called the ‘biggest breakthrough to date with regards to the battery life of smartphones’.

This is by far the best looking Nexus phone when it comes to the visual allure.

Keep it Big with Micromax Canvas Mega

Micromax Canvas

Micromax has launched yet another smartphone, Micromax Canvas Mega (E353)that falls well in the budget category. The phone comes with 5.5-inch screen size with a resolution of 720 pixels by 1280 pixels. Now the phone has been listed on the top by the company. Micromax Canvas Mega is a dual sim device that successfully runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. Micromax could have easily shipped the device to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, but it clearly chose not to.

At the back, it sports 13-megapixel autofocus camera that clicks decent pictures with LED flash, and a 5-megapixel rear camera that in also on board. On the connectivity front, The cell phone offers 3G, GPRS/EDGE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Micro-USB as well as Bluetooth options. It packs sensors such as accelerometer, magnetometer, ambient light sensor and proximity sensor. The not so beautifully curved phone is black in color. Sadly, the dual sim smartphone lacks 4G LTE and incorporates 2820 mAh battery that delivers 10 hours of talk time and up to 600 hours of standby time. Should it be a smartphone any first-time buyer could consider? The below-listed specifications will further clear all your doubts.

The basic specifications include:

  • Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • 5.5-inch IPS LCD display, 720 x 1,280 pixels, 267 pp
  • 13MP primary camera and 5MP secondary camera
  • 1.4GHz octa-core MediaTek processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB ROM, and microSD card slot (up to 32GB)
  • Dual-SIM card slot, 3G, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, GPS, microUSB v2.0 port, and 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Ambient-Light Sensor, Accelerometer, e-Compass, Gyro-Sensor, and Proximity Sensor
  • 2,820 mAh battery

Though the smartphone is good when it comes to performance and value for money but experts aren’t recommending it because there are a lot of worthy alternatives in the market such as Xiomi Mi 4i, Lenovo K3 note, etc. and most importantly the company owns Yu Yureka.


Micromax Bolt Q332: Low Budget Average Phone

Micromax Smartphone

Micromax had earlier made waves by introducing its Canvas series and offered a capable smartphone at an affordable price with high-end  specifications. Now the company is back with a more powerful phone – the Micromax Bolt Q332. Having dominant processor and better performance, the Bolt Q332 is a “pocket home theater” that comes with inbuilt speakers and offers an aufio output of 96dB.

The phone is dual sim incorporated with a wide 5-inch (480×854) FWVGA IPS display. It sports Android 5.1 Lollipop powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor coupled with 512 MB of RAM. You can enjoy an efficient and seamless smartphone experience with aesthetic design and notifications on the lock screen. It is also equipped with faster access by customizing app usage but limited access to apps for external users. In addition, there are some pre-loaded apps such as Amazon shopping, Quickr, and Snapdeal where you can shop till you drop.

The only drawback experienced is less than expected storage. It comes with only 2GB internal storage capacity which is further expandable up to 32GB. The camera too is not up to the mark. The 5MP camera clicks decent pictures, but pixel distortion is noticed when zoomed whereas the secondary camera is 2MP which doesn’t take brilliant selfies. The rear camera comes with some attractive features that include scene detection, face recognition, geotagging, panorama, best shot, smile shot and also HDR options.

On the connectivity front, the smartphone offers rapid 3G, GPRS/EDGE with an uploading speed of 11.2Mbps and downloading speed of 42Mbps. The Wi-Fi is 602.11 b/g/n and also Micro USB and Bluetooth options. Bolt Q332 is packed with an average battery of 2000mAh that can rate up to 6 hours of constant talk time and 225 hours of standby time. But the wide 12.7cm screen allows you to watch videos in stunning motion clarity at 16M color depth. Micromax has never been good with its battery life and this phone is no exception. It weighs 141 grams and measures 141.1x73x9.7mm. Unfortunately, there is no color range and the smartphone comes in black only.

If you are planning to buy a low budget smartphone with music clarity then there is nothing better than Micromax Bolt Q332. A smartphone with brilliant features at an affordable price. But if you think it will fulfill all your basic expectations then your expectations may not be met.

Huawei Honor 7 First Impression

Huawei is a rising company that is getting more popular by the day in the smartphone market. It has become comparatively easier to visit a street store and buy their products. The company has released a new smartphone, the Huawei Honor 7.

Huawei Honor 7


The elegant design is the very first thing that will strike you. The Honor7 has employed a metal design, but the rear cover isn’t removable. The sides of the cellphone are so nicely beveled giving it a good finish that it will make you fall in love with it. The phone weighs approximately 157 grams and is 8.5mm thick. Surprisingly, the Huawei Honor 7 price is quite nominal.


The phone rocks 5.2 inches of full HD display that seems to be pretty crisp. The Honor 7 comes with an IPS panel that ensures perfect viewing angles. Color and text appears sharp and vibrant. Similar to its predecessor, the phone houses a Kirin chipset. It incorporates the 5.0 Lollipop version of the Android OS and Wi-Fi 802.11ac. The performance is smooth without any lag and the Huawei Honor 7 reviews are quite good.

Camera and Battery

Most of the Honor phones have impressive cameras. The Honor 7 includes a 20MP rear camera with dual-tone LED flash and 8MP front camera for the selfie lovers. It also supports phase-detect auto focus for quick focusing. The user interface has been carried forward from its predecessor, the Huawei Honor 6 Plus, but there are two additional modes in this phone – the Good Food mode and Light Painting mode. The camera clicks of the phone are quite satisfying.

The Honor 7 has a non-removable 3100mAh battery that promises a day-long battery life. Just like other recently released phones, it also supports fast charging technology.


Huawei has managed to build a reputation in the smartphone market. The company is expecting to sell its new handset in bulk, but there are many other phones in the same price range which it has to compete with. However, pick up this phone if you need a wide screen and stylish design and want to stand out in the crowd.

Oppo Latest Smartphones Are Ambiguous Surprises

oppo smartphone

Oppo is a reliable brand in the smartphone market. Recently, it took the wraps off its two new phones, the R7 Plus and R7 Lite. The R7 Lite is the successor in the R7 series. The R7 smartphone is comparatively slimmer than the other phones previously launched. Moreover, the cost has also been reduced.

Both the phones are slim and lightweight, which makes them easy to hold. The R7 Lite feels absolutely sleek but fragile whereas the R7 Plus is bigger and wider which makes it difficult to hold and use single-handedly. The feel of the R7 Lite is pleasing over R7 Plus as it is slimmer and easy to hold. The only change Oppo made is that it incorporated a full metal unibody to both of the smartphones, but this didn’t manage to give it a classy feel.

Both of these Oppo smartphones have sensors, earpieces and front camera at the top of the front panel and a loudspeaker at the bottom. Due to the difference in their sizes, the R7 Lite has capacitive touch buttons and the R7 Plus has on screen buttons. On the inside, both the Oppo phones run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with the smart user interface. However, the notification pop up design makes it appear that Android 4.4 KitKat is being used. On the other hand, a bigger notification panel should have been added in the phone to make way for quick access.


The newest Oppo devices have a crisp and vibrant screen. Out of the two, the R7 Plus, is the clear winner because of its 6-inch full HD display screen and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The Oppo R7 Lite has a 5 inch HD resolution screen which is one inch smaller from the R7 Plus, but the screen size doesn’t add an extra advantage over the other. Due to fast, lag free and responsive features these devices have become noticeable. While the R7 Lite sports 2GB of Ram, the R7 Plus has 3GB.


The camera of both the devices is quite impressive. However, plenty of camera modes are available in these smartphones including Panorama, HDR, Slow Shutter, Ultra HD etc. These phones indeed have an excellent 13MP rear camera with f/2.2 apertures and an 8MP front camera with f/2.4 aperture. Furthermore, R7 Plus has an autofocus property for quick capturing of photos. The only benefits the Oppo R7 Plus has over Oppo R7 Lite is a fingerprint sensor feature as it adds more security to the device.


The Oppo R7 Plus has a fair battery life of 4100mAh that lasts for a day and a half whereas the R7 Lite has a 2320mAh non-removable battery. These devices charge 75% of the battery within half an hour.

However, most of the features found in these Oppo phones are available in other devices at a much cheaper price but adopters of these devices can receive more RAM, decent selfie camera, metal body and more inbuilt storage. Therefore, the new Oppo phones have a nice design but are unable to compete with other phones with same specifications.
