OnePlus 11R 5G Review: Back in Form

The OnePlus 11R 5G is the company's latest ‘value flagship' and it's not hard to see why this phone is getting a lot of attention, maybe even more than the flagship OnePlus 11 5G (Review) which was announced at the same time. To fans of the OnePlus brand, the 11R 5G represents the company's original philosophy of offering lots of premium features at a disruptive price, which is something we haven't seen for a long time. The 11R 5G is a big upgrade to last year's 10R 5G (Review) and thankfully, OnePlus hasn't cut too many corners this time.
The OnePlus 11R 5G offers users a flagship-grade processor, the same primary camera that the OnePlus 11 5G has, and very quick charging — all at a starting price of Rs. 39,999 in India. There aren't many phones at the moment in India that offer this combination of features at this price, which is what makes the 11R 5G a very enticing option. It's time to see if it's actually as good as it looks on pap..

Moto E13 Review: Filling the Void

Smartphones keep getting more expensive every year and there's no stopping it. With the increasing cost of components, coupled with most big brands focusing more on premium smartphones, there is a void in the entry-level segment in India. Motorola, which had a busy 2022 launching several G-series and E-series phones in India, is trying to fill that void with the launch of the Moto E13.
The Moto E13 is the company's most affordable phone to date in India. It aims at getting the basics right while still offering a budget-friendly price. Should the Moto E13 be considered if your budget is under Rs. 10,000? Here is our review to help you decide.
Moto E13 price in IndiaThe Moto E13 has been launched in India with 2GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which is priced at Rs. 6,999. There is also a 4GB RAM and 64GB storage option, which is priced at Rs. 7,999. Motorola sent us the latter variant for this review.

Moto G73 5G First Impressions: Focussing on 5G

Motorola's current G-series lineup can be best summarised as confusing. The older Moto G62 had 5G connectivity, but the recently launched Moto G72 (Review) missed out on it. Now, there's the new Moto G73 which gets 5G connectivity but is officially priced the same as the G72. The latter fared well in our review, save for the missing 5G element which we considered as a big drawback. Despite Motorola's odd reasoning behind this move, the G72 felt a bit out of place, especially at a time when 5G connectivity was already available in major cities.
The new Moto G73 5G is expected to be the much-awaited Moto G62 5G upgrade, but it also serves as a 5G alternative to the more recent Moto G72. Here's our first impressions of the new smartphone.
The Moto G73 5G has a slim and chiselled appearance, compared to the Moto G62 5G it replaces
It is easy to spot this generational leap once you have seen Motorola's new design philosophy, which is quite evident in the chiselled ..

Jabra Elite 5 True Wireless Earphones Review: Jack of All, Master of None

Danish professional and consumer audio brand Jabra has been among the most quietly impressive brands in the true wireless earphones segment for a few years now, thanks to its consistency, attention to detail, and all-round performance that also tends to get voice-based communications right. Focused typically on mid-range and high-end true wireless earphones, Jabra has a strong, value-driven product range that admittedly deserves much more attention than it gets. The company's latest true wireless headset in India is the Jabra Elite 5, a mid-range pair of earphones with a strong feature set.
Priced at Rs. 10,999 in India, the Jabra Elite 5 features active noise cancellation, support for the Qualcomm aptX Bluetooth codec, and compatibility with the excellent Jabra Sound+ app. Going up against strong competition from brands such as OnePlus and Oppo in this price range, is the Jabra Elite 5 worth picking up?

The Last of Us Season 1 Review: A Tale of Single Parentage Rooted in an Unforgiving, Mouldy World

“When you're lost in the darkness, look for the light.” This is a message that resonates throughout The Last of Us series, in both a literal and metaphorical sense, signifying the search for hope in an otherwise lifeless wasteland. You know what else is known for being lifeless? Video game adaptations that are clearly made to cash in on the popularity of the original property, often ruining the original experience and drawing hatred from fans. HBO's latest post-apocalyptic drama, however, is anything but that. On top of the immaculate piece Neil Druckmann sculpted — that is the original PS3 game, filmmaker Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) has laid a thick spit-shine, delivering a splendidly emotional tale that appeals to both fans and newcomers alike.
As cheesy as it sounds, The Last of Us is indeed that scarce beam of light seeping through the shady, dense branches of ill-fated adaptations. Now to be fair, the HBO series was somewhat primed for success, given the source material was ..

Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra vs iPhone 14 Pro Camera Shootout: Time for Apple to Step Down?

iPhones have long been hailed as the “go-to” smartphone of choice when it comes to video recording. Whether its content creators or mobile photography enthusiasts, Apple's iPhones pack enough power and capabilities to satiate everyone's video capturing requirements. However, this year more than ever, Apple seems to have fallen behind in terms of still imaging quality. In my previous smartphone camera shootout between the Google Pixel 7 Pro and the iPhone 14 Pro, it was easy to tell how big of a leap Google had over the iPhone 14 Pro. At the same time, our review of the Pixel 7 Pro (Review) also drove home the fact that while Samsung's Galaxy S22 Ultra (Review) might be the 'king of zoom', it still had a lot of catching up when it came to regular still photography.
It's 2023, and Samsung has launched its latest Galaxy S23 Ultra, which exceeded expectations in our review thanks to its new 200-megapixel primary camera sensor and the customised processor from ..

Oppo Find N2 Flip Review: An Impressive Debut

Oppo has long neglected the premium segment of the smartphone market in India. The Oppo Find X2 Pro (First look) arrived in 2020 and we haven't had any other Find series phones until now. The Oppo Find N2 Flip made its global debut in February, and just a month later Oppo has launched it in India. The Find N2 Flip goes up against the only other vertically folding smartphones in India, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 and its predecessors, which up until now had gone unchallenged.
The Find N2 Flip follows the same formula as Samsung and Oppo has implemented similar software features too. Where it distinguishes itself is with its much larger outer display, higher resolution cameras, larger battery, and quicker charging. Are these features enough to make it worth picking over the established rival? Let's have a look.
