5 Best Affordable Android's you can buy!

We all love Smartphone's but when it comes to buying one, the price tag stops us from having them. In the 5 Godly Smartphone's I had listed previously all had a price range of Rs.30,000. Some can't afford it while some hesitate spending so much on a phone. Well, the advantage of Android Smartphone's is that you can buy one from the price range of Rs.8000 to Rs.35000. Low priced Android allows the common man to enjoy the fun of using a Smartphone without burning his pocket. But again there are many entry level low priced phones form numerous companies to buy. So, here's a list of 5 Best Affordable Android's that you can buy.

1. Samsung Galaxy Ace
Rating: 4/5
Indian Price: Rs.14,000
The Good: 5 megapixel snapper with LED Flash, Samsung Apps brings a few nice apps for free, Built in Document editor.
The Bad: Video recording @ 15fps is below par, No Flash support for Web Browsers.

2. Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini Pro
Rating: 4/5
Indian price: Rs.15,000
The Good: 720p HD Video recording, Android 2.3 latest, 1Ghz processor at such low price, Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine, Super smooth designed Timescape UI
The Bad: It's small 3 inch screen is only the bad point which led this phone to be ranked 2nd on my list.

3. HTC Wildfire S
Rating: 3.5/5
Indian Price: 13,000
The Good: XviD Video support, Ultra-fast boot time, Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) with HTC Sense 2.1 UI.
The Bad: Poor Camera, No Document Viewer, 3.2 inch screen.

4. Motorola FIRE XT
Rating: 3/5
Indian Price: 13,000
The Good: Flash included for the browser, Good Camera & Video Recording, Android v2.3.4 (Gingerbread)
The Bad: Moto Switch UI not good,  You cannot update your Android for a newer version as Motorola doesn't send updates in India.

5. Samsung Galaxy Fit
Rating: 3/5
Indian Price: 10,500
The Good: 5 megapixel snapper, Document/Image Viewer/Editor, Good Build Quality
The Bad: Poor Video Recording @ 15fps, No Flash for browsers, No video call camera.

There are many other options but these 5 stand out from others in there own manner. Low level Smartphone's are good for daily use but it won't give you the WOW factor a higher level Smartphone would give. If our pockets are loaded then you can buy the Best of all Smartphone's.

How to get the new Facebook Timeline in 10 steps

In my previous post of Facebook is getting a new look again! I had mentioned that Mark Zuckerburg introduced a new feature named 'Timeline'. Well later today I found a way to get it before it's official release. It's really very good, well designed and works smoothly. One can view every photo, every status update, in short everything you ever did on Facebook in one single page called Timeline from where you can also select the date or month to view what you had done at that point of time.

Follow these steps carefully to get the Timeline:
1. Log on to Facebook

2. Go to the developers page by adding '/developers' in your address bar.

3. Now you will have to Allow the app for it to access your account.

4. Next, click on the Create new app icon on the top-right side of your page.

5. Give it some random name. Don't worry even if you name it 'ababbaba' in both the lines, it won't matter. Make it Random. 

6. Don't forget to tick the I agree to the platform policy box and then click on Continue.

7. Then a security window pops up, asking you to type in the letters you see. Enter them.

8. You will be taken to a new page. Select 'Open Graph' on the upper left had side of the page.

9. Now fill the boxes with two verbs. I used 'watch' & 'movie'. You can use the same. No worries. After this click on 'Get Started'.

10. In the address bar again now visit In 2-3 secs, you will receive notification at the top asking you to try Timeline. Click on 'Get it Now'.

This is how my profile look with the Timeline
That's it. Now your good to go. I'll prefer you guys take a tour to understand. I personally loved it. 

How does your account look? You liked it?

Note: You cannot undo this new look but don't worry Facebook has announced that this new look will become public from 30th Sept. Only users using the Timeline can view your account's Timeline for now.

Facebook is going to get a new look! Yes Again!

Yes you heard it right so don't be shocked if you sign in one morning and discover that your account's got a completely new look. On 22nd September at f8, Facebook's annual developers conference held in San Francisco, Mark Zuckerberg announced all the new features that are soon going to get added up to our profiles. It's going to be a total revamp. A new Facebook.

The guy needs to know that we still are trying to understand the new features he just added. Yet, whose going to stop him from doing this? Even though the new changes would come I don't think people are going to stop using Facebook. Are you? You can get rid of the new ticker on the right side of your post. Read this. to do so.

Here's a list of the new features:

1. Timeline: When Mark Zuckerberg announced this he said,"Millions of people curate stories of their lives on Facebook every day and have no way to share them once they fall off your profile page. We have been working on ‘timeline’ all year. It’s the story of your life and completely new way to express yourself. It has three pieces: all your stories, your apps and a new way to express who you are.”
Now this is something cool. One can view every photo, every status update, in short everything you ever did on Facebook in one single page called Timeline from where you can also select the date or month to view what you had done at that point of time.

2. Open Graph Media Apps: Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg explained that where you would normally "like" something your friend is watching or listening to, you can now just turn on the same stream and begin watching or listening to the song or video yourself.

Now you can see what your friend is listening, watching, eating, reading, playing and every other thing we can do. What's unique is that even you can exactly to do the same. This video below will give you a clear idea about what i'm talking.

3. Other small features:

  • A private activity log to help you filter what you've done that you want to promote and what you want to hide.
  • A huge new "cover" photo to help you express yourself at the top of your timeline.
  • The ability to fill in your timeline, adding stories, photos and more to specific parts of your past.

Your new profile Page will look like this

Facebook really proved that they rule the Social Networking world by announcing these features just after Google+ went live. Seriously, Google will have to innovate to even survive. Facebook is becoming successful at their aim to share everything a person can with the world. To socialize the world. To connect everything.

Within a few weeks, we all will be able to see the new Facebook. Stay tuned.

How to get rid of the New Facebook look

In my previous post off Google+ going live I had mentioned that even Facebook today had launched some new features.

All of you who logged on to Facebook today must have come across the new look of it. The News ticker on the right hand side is practically of no use. This ticker needlessly busies the News Feed page. It's a Facebook news feed inside a Facebook news feed.

Thankfully, there is a quick and easy way in Google Chrome to get rid of the ticker.

Simply visit, Google Chrome's Webstore and search for Hide Facebook SideBar Ticker

You should get this after search 

Install this extension and your good to go. Login to your Facebook account and see the magic. The ticker is gone.



5 Godly Smartphone’s everyone would want to have!

We all love Smartphone's but to be frank Apple's iPhone is the one we all think about when it comes to being the Best Smartphone. Well, let me warn you my friend there are other better Smartphone's that will blow your mind off. From Samsung to LG, everyone's having a piece of share in this list of 5 Godly Smartphone's everyone would want to have. And when I use the word Godly, It really implies that they are something extraordinary.

     Samsung Galaxy S2
Rating: 5/5
About: Combining a top notch Super AMOLED Plus display with the best of connectivity and the prowess of a 1.2Ghz Dual-Core Processor, to add up a 8Megapixel snapper with Full HD recording built in just a body of 9.9mm of thickness, this beast is the GOD of all phones without any doubt.
The Good: Exceptionally awesome AMOLED display (the best), Dual Core Processor, Android 2.3, Superb Video Recording quality.
The Bad: Practically None. Just a disappointing plastic build at the rear.

Apple iPhone4
Rating: 4/5
About: The name is self-explanatory. No comments. Love it or Hate it, it’s Apple.
The Good: Well built iOS 4, 720p HD recording, BOLD looks, The ‘Apple’ Tag.
The Bad: Antenna issue, Not all apps support multi-tasking, No flash and many more.

Motorola Atrix
Rating: 4/5
About: Is this a laptop or PC or a Media Hub? Oh! Wait, it’s just a Smartphone. My confusion will clear all your doubts when you watch the video below. This beast is a true all rounder in terms of portability experience when combined with the docks..
The Good: Powerful Dual-Core Processor, All the docks, Finger print scanner.
The Bad: Expensive docks, Bad Camera quality.

HTC Sensation
Rating: 4/5
About: HTC’s first dual core Smartphone that delivers a true Android experience combined with HTC’s Sense 3.0 UI experience.
The Good: Gorgeous looks. HTC Sense. 4.3inch qHD Display. Fastest boot time.

LG Optimus 3D
Rating: 3.5/5
About: Wouldn’t it be exciting to have a phone that could shoot in 3D & give you a 3D experience? Well, it surely is ground breaking what LG has done. Combining a Dual Core processor with 3D recording & 3D display, this phone is one attractive beast.
The Good: Good display, 3D fun, Fast.
The Bad: Very limited 3D apps and 3D content. 3D not quite impressive just a gimmick. Bad battery life.

This is my list of 5 Best Smartphone's. What is your list? Any additions to this list? Feel free to comment or ask for advice's.


Google+ goes live

Finally, Google yesterday announced that it's Google+ social network is live and needs no invitation to log in. It's now open to everyone. 
Google Inc and Facebook together released
out a variety of new social networking features in back-to-back announcements heating up the competition more. 
Google added its flagship search feature into its 3-month old social network while Facebook on the other hand released a new "ticker" on its users' home pages, providing real-time notifications of what friends are doing on the service. Facebook also revamped the service's main news feed to flag important items. Facebook also changed the way photos are displayed on the site, increasing the size of pictures that appear in a users' news feed.
What's more interesting is that Google's infant social network, shows Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as a member of its services. Some are waiting to see if it can maintain the rapid momentum of its first months.
I feel Google has still a lot to work on before it becomes as famous as Facebook. Facebook is much more superior and is well established. Google+ is new, people may log in to try it but Google has to do something groundbreaking here to attract more users and keep them attached.
