  •        Lenovo has finally launched the Moto G4 and G4 Plus in India. And in sync with the company’s stated plan to be known as ‘Moto by Lenovo’, there is almost no mention of the Motorola brand. Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus are still pitched as budget benchmark devices offering a pure Android experience. Moto India says, G4 is for those looking at a balanced smartphone while G4 Plus is for those looking at a little advanced and secure smartphone. 





    The Moto G4 Plus comes at a price tag of Rs 13,499 for the 16GB inbuilt storage+2GB RAM version, while the 32GB storage+3GB RAM has been priced at 14,999. The handset is up for pre-orders exclusively on Amazon India. The company did not reveal the price of the Moto G4 smartphone but said that it will be available in June.





    Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus handsets are successors to the company's Moto G (3rd Generation) that launched last year. Both the Moto G4 handsets support VoLTE connectivity and support dual-SIM with dual standby with 4G and 3G connections. For those unaware, the previous Moto G (3rd Gen) smartphone offers 4G+2G standby support.




    The Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow-based Motorola Moto G4 Plus is a dual-SIM (Micro-SIM cards) smartphone that features a fingerprint sensor on the home button. It bears a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display with a pixel density of 401ppi and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The smartphone is powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 (MSM8952) SoC coupled with an Adreno 405 GPU and a choice of either 2GB or 3GB of RAM



    Design and Display 


    Moto G4 Plus looks and feels exactly like its predecessor, but is now thinner than the previous generation devices. Moto G4 Plus is 7.9 mm thick and is no longer water-resistant, which was one of the USPs of Moto G3. Moto G4 Plus fits nicely in the hand. However, it won’t appeal to those looking to use the phone with one hand.



    Camera


    Moto G4 fixes the long-standing flaw of Moto G series – cameras. Lenovo is claiming big improvements to its G4 series lineup. At the launch, Motorola’s Director of Product Management, Allison Yi claimed Moto G4 Plus’ camera is better than iPhone 6s Plus. That is one really bold claim to make. 








    Battery 


    Moto G series never had a huge battery, but rather came with great battery optimisation to keep the device running all day long. Moto G4 Plus comes with a 3000mAh battery, and also supports Turbo charging. 





    Software


    Moto has also added its own features like Moto Display and Moto Voice to the stock Android UI. With Moto Display, users can not only see incoming notifications from the lock screen, it can also be accessed with the help of a swipe. Moto G4 supports Moto Voice, but the feature is not as enriched as the one on Moto X series.


  • After all the speculations Xiaomi finally launched Mi Max on Tuesday along with the newest version of its operating system MIUI 8.

    After the launch of MIUI 7 previous year, this iteration of the MIUI was claimed by Xiaomi to be much more colourful and stylish. The company also claimed to that its color would change with the weather.

    Xiaomi had always been a big player in the Global market and claimed that it had over 200 million users Worldwide. Alibaba claimed that Xiaomi phones were in the top 10 phones sold in the month of March. We are not at all surprised as the progress made by Xiaomi had it ripples in India previous year.

    MIUI is likely to release its Global Version in India next month so be sure to stay-tuned to Tech-xcyT for more updates.

    Inspired by the Kaleidoscope the main intention was to make the user interface more colourful and stunning. 


    Applications like Notes, Phone, Calendar, Gallery, Calculator and SMS has many new features and UI changes which gives the user a totally new taste of MIUI.

    Here we present the TOP 11 features of MIUI 8.

    1.   1) WALLPAPER CAROUSEL: You can change you wallpapers directly from the lockscreen and choose from a gallery of high quality wallpapers. Although it was introduced in MIUI 7 now it has increased the categories to 12 and the quality of the wallpapers.


    2   2) MI LANTING: Mi introduced a new font in MIUI 8 which increases the readability of the text even after prolonged sessions of looking at the screen. Mi Lanting is supported by the English, Chinese and Latin scripts.

        3) POWER SAVING MODE: Mi introduced a new power saving mode which freezes the background tasks and applications and suspends all the syncs and updates to enable the phone to run as long as possible. Now you can also select the applications to be loaded at bootup just like in Windows.

  • Good news to all Mi Fans out there!

    The Mi5 will be launching the next month on 20th, but Xiaomi’s flagship phone just popped up on one online retailer’s website. The long-rumored handset was briefly spotted at Chinese site GearBest, revealing a few new images and a full list of hardware.



    According to AndroidHeadlines, which caught the leaked product page before it was removed, the Xiaomi Mi5 will offer flagship-level specs. That includes:

    • 5.2-inch Quad HD display
    • Snapdragon 820 processor
    • 4GB of RAM
    • 16-megapixel rear camera
    • 8-megapixel front-facing shooter 
    • 3600mAh battery

    It’s not all good news though. The Mi5 will apparently start at just 16GB of storage, presumably with a 64GB option as well. It may also run outdated Android 5.1 software, along with Xiaomi’s own MiUI 7 skin. For the most part this lines up with previous leaks.



    These new images aren’t much of a surprise either, though the Mi5 looks great with a glass-and-metal design in gold, black or white. It’s also the first Xiaomi
    phone to sport a physical home button, which is where the company is expected to put its new fingerprint reader.



    We’re still a little blurry when it comes to how much the Mi5 will cost. Conflicting reports suggest the company could stay as low as $320 off-contract or raise the price so it’s closer to $400. Either way it’s still a great deal considering what you’ll get in return. Mi5 will start its operation in India after 2 months of launch in China.

    So, you want to buy a new budget Android phone and still want to get the best bang for your buck?
    Want most of the features, but can stretch upto Rs.5, 500 only?
    Then you are at the right spot as here not only your doubts will be answered, but you will also be  guided though all the alternatives which will help you to decide one will be your next  worthy buy.

    We at Tech-xcyT do not accept sponsorship from any manufacturer, thus what we say, our views remain unbiased and completely impartial.
    In this price bracket, we have shortlisted phones from Micromax, InFocus and Lava. Yes, there are other options out there, but they couldn't make it to the top 3 in our research.


    1. Micromax Canvas Spark:

    The Canvas Spark comes in a sleek and elegant body complemented by a cool metallic rim. Available in White & Gold and Grey & Silver. The 4.7" display comes with Gorilla Glass support. 



    The Micromax Canvas Spark is surely a strong contender over here and ticks all the checkboxes for being the perfect buy.


    You can buy it exclusively from Snapdeal at http://bit.ly/1Skymvf

    2. InFocus M2:

    Quite new to the Indian market, InFocus is trying best to make a mark in the budget friendly zone and also in the premium segment. The InFocus more or less have the same specifications as that of the Canvas Spark. But InFocus beats Spark in the Display compartment fair and square. Spark sports a qHD Display (960*540) whereas M2 boasts of a 1280 x 768 pixels LTPS LCD.  
    M2 also gives you the goodness of Dual 8MP camera, that is, the front and rear camera both are 8MP and it just doesn't stop here! It also features dual LED Flash, making M2  a delight for selfies!

    3. Lava Flair Z1 8 GB:

    Lava flair Z1 features a clear 12.7 cm (5) FWVGA TFT screen. The display resolution is of 480 x 854 pixels at 196 ppi (pixels per inch). Sounds low on paper, but in reality, it is not that bad. You can watch movies and play games on this phone in an immersive and engaging manner. Lava steals the show with its stylish design and we loved it!

    AND THE WINNER IS!

    Trust us, it is really difficult to call anyone of them the numero uno. Each one of them is great and is bound to satisfy anyone who is looking for casual gaming, day-to-day tasks, etc. You just cannot go wrong  with any of them. 

    Still, to give a definitive answer, it all boils down to you. If you like a larger screen, go with Lava. If you wish to enjoy better camera quality and love clicking selfies, go for InFocus. If you wish to go for an established brand, go with Micromax Canvas Spark. The choice is yours!

    Lava Flair Z1: Buy from Snapdeal
    InFocus M2: Buy from Snapdeal
