Sony Bravia A1 KD-55A1 OLED TV Review

Sony Bravia A1 KD-55A1-8

The future is OLED. The deep blacks and simply jaw-dropping contrast levels, viewing angles possible using the tech create an image that almost  pop out from the screen. So it’s really no surprise that the top end television in Sony’s line up sports an OLED panel similar to LG and Panasonic’s line up. We’ve been testing out the Bravia A1 KD-55A1 for the last few weeks and here’s what we think about it. Continue reading “Sony Bravia A1 KD-55A1 OLED TV Review”

Nokia 8_fonearena-18

It’s probably fair to say that there’s a bit of nostalgia associated with the Nokia brand. Most cellphone enthusiasts have sported one at some point in their life and others continue to swear by the legacy of the brand.

Mi Mix 2 -2

Sure, Sharp had announced a number of them over the years but a product that remained stuck in Japan doesn’t really count, does it? So, when out of the blue, Xiaomi of all brands introduced a modern, uncompromised smartphone that simply broke all design conventions, it quickly became the talk of the town.

In the year that has followed, bezel less and 18:9 are terms that almost every major smartphone manufacturer has latched on to. Now that the gimmick isn’t new or unique, the Mi MIX 2 has to stand up on its own merits. We’ve spent a bit of time with the new hardware. Not nearly enough to write a review but enough for us to pen down some initial thoughts. Let’s talk about the Mi MIX 2. Continue reading “Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 First Impressions”
