Aur kitna choona lagayenge ye! 

 

 

We are really at peak smartphone. Mr. MCBCMKC here means we are getting higher refresh rate and more memory as if an average consumer needs those things. An avg. consumer needs a better battery life but doesn't give a damn about refresh rate. Give a charger inside the box ffs. 

Aise to bolenge fridge aaega ek din phone me. So we are not at the peak yet.

He was very diplomatic in the video.

Kinda felt that he is for sure gonna say "I can see why it makes sense" when iPhone 14 comes out with the same chip for higher price.

He has always been interested only in the money making and keeping brands happy. I have never cared for his reviews. In fact most tech you tubers are same these days.

Pixel Buds A lowest price ever on Flipkart.

 

With SBI CC, you can get these for 5k. 

 

Absolutely insane deal. 

I bought these for almost 9k a few months ago.

People with S22 Ultra, what screen protectors if any do you use? The glass ones seem to interfere with the ultrasound fingerprint scanner while the film ones seem to leave bubbles, and tend to peel off from the curved edges.

My comment is directed towards Apple. 

 

I think MKBHD is correct here. But peak or not. If Apple don't include new chip this year, their price hike won't be justified. I know their recent phones are also more or less the same thing with different name but at least on paper it provided some upgrade. This one the hand, shall be their lowest point if they decide to charge extra for the same thing. 

 

Why can't companies skip a year if they are not able to provide something new.

Some random plastic one (not Tempered) from Amazon, can find the link if you're interested.

Cost me 5.3k with SBI CC. I wish I didn't buy Galaxy Buds Pro early this year, they sound amazing but the fit is horrendous. And it causes ear infections for some people.

I use it with my iPhone and it pairs easily. 
After the initial setup, it connects instantly after opening the case. 

Mic quality is very good. 
 

This was surprising coz every review said that all the features would work only with Pixel/android phones. 
But things like ear detection (auto pause/play), tap controls work just as well on iOS. 
 

But the Pixel Buds app is only on android at the moment. 

So if you want to make any adjustments to bass/treble, you should pair it with any android phone and change them. 

Once changed, it works with the same settings everywhere.

Please do share. How's it holding up?

 

I ordered Spigen tempered glass. Quite expensive and quite a few reviews complaining about poor fingerprint sensitivity. But had no other glass alternatives, and past experiences with film based ones have made me weary about ordering them.

I like them more than the Airpods 2nd gen.

Well balanced, vocals sound amazing. Not too heavy on bass. 

 

Mainly use them for workouts because of the fit. They never fall out of my ear, thanks to the wing tips.

You need to enable the fingerprint sensitivity option, somewhere in the settings. Helps with tempered glass. 

 

This is the one I bought:

As per some leaks iPhone 14 and 14 max will stick with A15 chip and 14 pro and pro max will get the A16 chip. Imo it's quite an absurd decision if true.

Is Samsung S20 FE 5G good purchase now? I am getting it for 28.5K after corporate discount?

It's one of the good android phones out there, decent battery, fantastic processor, competitive camera. 
Only downside is its close to 2 years old now, and there is probably just 1 more OS update left for it.

It will still have 2 more years of security updates and I am not worried about OS update as my wife wont be bothered by it. Is there any other good phones between 25-30K?

S20FE 5G has some heating issues and battery life will be average. A52S is the better option for better battery life and less heat. M53 is also good option at 25k. And finally Mi 11 Lite NE 5G and Realme 9 Pro Plus
