Available. Delivered in 5-6 business days.
XOLO A800 WORTH IT OR NOT ?
on 07 February 13
Sagar rated:

FIRST OF ALL THIS PHONE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH INTEL ! ITS NOT AN INTEL PHONE. IT HAS MEDIATEK PROCESSOR SAME AS MICROMAX'S A110 CANVAS 2 , KARBONN A21 ETC ETC ETC. ALL PHONES, BE IT ANY (MICROMAX,LAVA,KARBONN ETC) IN THIS PRICE RANGE, HAS THE SAME PROCESSOR !! AND ARE MADE IN CHINA. ONLY BRANDED IN INDIA, THE STUFF WHICH IS NOT FOUND SIMILAR IN THESE PHONES (MM CANVAS 2, KARBONN A21, LAVA XOLO A800 ) ARE THE TOUCH SCREEN, SPEAKERS, CAMERA AND THE BUILD QUALITY. HERE IS THE COMPARISON BETWEEN CANVAS 2, KARBONN A21 XOLO A800 AND WHERE THESE PHONES ACE.

DISPLAY: XOLO A800= 4.5/5
CANVAS 2= 2.5/5
KARBONN A21 = 3.5/5

PROCESSOR(RAM & ROM)
XOLO A800= 3/5 (1GHZ,512 RAM)
CANVAS 2= 3/5 (1GHZ, 512 RAM)
KARBONN A21= 3/5 (1GHZ, 512 RAM)

CAMERA
XOLO A800= 3.5/5
KARBONN A21= 3.5/5
CANVAS 2= 3/5

BUILD QUALITY
XOLO A800= 4.5/5
KARBONN A21= 3.5/5
CANVAS 2= 3/5

SOUND
XOLO A800= 3.5/5
KARBONN A21= 3.5/5
CANVAS 2= 4/5

PRICE
XOLO A800= 4/5
KARBONN A21= 4.5/5
CANVAS 2= I WOULD HAVE GIVEN 4 BUT DUE TO ITS SHORTAGE, IT IS BEING SOLD IN BLACK FOR MORE THAN 10K FOR ABOUT 12K-12.5K SO 3/5

HOWEVER THE SCREEN SIZE OF CANVAS 2 IS THE LARGEST BUT ITS NOT AS GOOD AS XOLO A800 OR KARBONN A21. XOLO IS MUCH BETTER THAN KARBONN A21. XOLO'S DISPLAY IS CRISP AND COLOR IS MORE VIBRANT.
MICROMAX'S CANVAS 2 IS IN SO MUCH DEMAND BECAUSE OF THE ADVERTISEMENTS. NO OTHER PHONE COMPANY IS DISPLAYING THEIR ADDS ON TV ETC , SO PEOPLE ARE BLINDLY GOING FOR MICROMAX CANVAS 2. FEW ARE BUYING BECAUSE OF ITS LARGE SIZE, JUST TO FLAUNT :P

KARBONN'S AFTER SALE SERVICE IS NOT SO GOOD, WHERE AS LAVA GIVES DOOR TO DOOR SERVICE FOR ITS XOLO SERIES, WELL IT SAYS SO.
THE LAVA XOLO A800 DOES NOT HANG BUT DOES LAG SOME TIMES. LIKE WHEN YOU START TEMPLE RUN IT LAGS ONCE IN THE BEGINNING BUT NOT AFTER THAT. EVEN AFTER RESTART IT DOESN'T. MAY BE BECAUSE OF 512 RAM, CONSIDERING THIS ALL PHONES WITH 4+ SCREEN SIZE WILL LAG A BIT AND CANVAS 2 DOES LAG. IN THE END I WILL SAY THAT DON'T SECOND GUESS AND GO FOR THIS (XOLO A800) AND FORGET ABOUT CANVAS 2 AND IF YOU CAN WAIT AND PUSH YOUR BUDGET LIMIT FEW THOUSAND MORE, THEN DO CONSIDER CANVAS HD ( MICROMAX A116) . FOR NOW XOLO A800 IS MUCH MUCH BETTER THAN MICROMAX, KARBONN,SPICE AND IBALL.

I SPEND ALMOST 4 HRS FOR 3 DAYS AT THE MOBILE SHOP JUST TO DECIDE WHICH ONE SHOULD I BUY ( THAT'S HOW WASTED I AM :P ). I HAVE USED ALL THESE HANDSETS AND CONCLUSION IS XOLO A800.

A MUST BUY
on 11 February 13
Sagar rated:

DELL INSPIRON 15R 7520

I HAVE BEEN USING THIS LAPTOP FOR MORE THAN A MONTH NOW AND HERE IS WHAT I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS LAPTOP.

THE VARIANT I AM USING HAS FOLLOWING CONFIGURATION.

CONFIGURATION

3rd Gen Intel Core i7 Processor (2.10 Ghz Turbo boost 3.10) WITH 6MB CACHE
8GB DDR RAM
2GB AMD 7730 GRAPHICS
1TB HDD @ 5400 RPM
SCULL CANDY SPEAKERS
4 USB 3.0 SLOTS WITH ONE POWER SHARE
1 HDMI SLOT
1 VGA SLOT
1 MIC IN AND 1 HEAD PHONE IN
DVD OPTICAL DRIVE
1 MP WEBCAM WITH NOISE CANCELLATION
BACKLIT KEYBOARD

GAMING

THE LAPTOP IS FAST AND SNAPPY . IT HANDLES GAMES LIKE GTA 4 , FIFA 13, CRISIS 2, BATTLE FIELD 3 MODERN WARFARE, BATMAN (ALL PARTS), FAR CRY, NFS MOSTWANTED 2, NFS SHIFT, NFS HOT PURSUIT, ASSASSINS CREED (ALL PARTS), ETC VERY WELL. HOWEVER THE GAMES TAKE A WHILE TO LOAD. SMOOTH GAME PLAY AND CRISP GRAPHICS. BUT THE PERFORMANCE IS NOT THE BEST ONE WHEN COMPARED TO OTHERS IN COMPETITION TO THIS LAPTOP. I AM NOT SAYING ALIENWARE, BUT COMPANIES LIKE SAMSUNG, HP AND ASUS.

MULTITASKING

MULTITASKING IS A DELIGHT ON THIS LAPTOP MUCH BETTER THAN HP'S DV6 LAPTOPS WITH NVIDIA GE FORCE GT 630M GAPHICS. THE DEVICE HANDLES HEAVY PROGRAMS AND SOFTWARE LIKE PHOTOSHOP PREMIERE PRO, LIGHTROOM, AFTER EFFECT, ILLUSTRATOR, INDESIGN, MAYA, AUTOCAD 3D PRETTY WELL. I HAVE TRIED MULTITASKING BY RUNNING WORDS 2010, PHOTOSHOP, PREMIERE PRO AND MEDIA PLAYER TOGETHER AND STILL ONLY 3 CORES WERE BEING USED. NO HANG OR LAG, WHICH HAPPENED WHEN I DID THE SAME ON HP PAVILION DV6 7040TX LAPTOP AND IT GOT HEATED UP SO MUCH EVEN WITH A COOLING PAD ON,THAT I HAD TO TURN IT OFF.
THIS LAPTOP DOES NOT HEAT EVEN WITH MULTITASKING USING HARDCORE SOFTWARES

WEBCAM AND MIC

THE CAMERA HAS NOTHING MUCH TO BOAST ABOUT BUT STILL DELIVERS A VERY WELL VIDEO QUALITY AND HAS AUTO FOCUS AND ZOOM TOO. THE NOISE CANCELLATION IS PRETTY GOOD.

SOUND QUALITY

THE SOUND IS LOUD ENOUGH BUT NOT THE LOUDEST ONE IN THE MARKET, SAMSUNG LAPTOPS WITH JBL SPEAKERS DELIVER MUCH LOUDER SOUND. THE SOUND IS CLEAR AND NO DISTORTION IN SOUND IS HEARD EVEN WHEN ITS ON 100%. DUE TO THE PLACEMENT OF THE SPEARS IN FRONT BOTTOM YOU HAVE TO RISE THE LAPTOP A BIT TO HEAR IT CLEARLY. THE BEATS AND TREBLE ARE GOOD ENOUGH.

DISPLAY

HOWEVER THE LAPTOP COMES WITH 720P OR 1080P RESOLUTION DISPLAY, BUT STILL ITS NOT SO PLEASING TO THE EYE. VIEWING ANGLES ARE OK , NOTHING MUCH. BIT DISTORTED IMAGES ARE SEEN WHEN VIDEOS ARE VIEWED CLOSER TO THE SCREEN. NOT THE BEST SCREEN ! DELL COULD HAVE DONE BETTER AT THIS PRICE TAG. HOWEVER CONNECT IT TO AN EXTERNAL SCREEN AND ENJOY.

BUILT QUALITY

DELL HAS DONE A REMARKABLE JOB HERE. THE LAPTOP, BEING MADE OF PLASTIC MATERIAL IS VERY WELL BUILT AND FEELS STURDY. GOOD TEXTURED PALM REST AND BACK PANEL. THE KEYBOARD IS ALSO WELL BUILT AND PEOPLE WHO LIKE THE CLICKING SOUND OF THE KEYS AND MOUSE BUTTONS WILL LIKE IT. KEYBOARD BACK LIGHT IS VERY GOOD AND MAKES IT EASY TO VIEW EACH AND EVERY KEY IN PITCH DARK NIGHTS.

AFTER SALES SERVICE

AT THE PRICE TAG OF RS 66800 MRP, THE LAPTOP IS QUITE EXPENSIVE FOR WHAT IT DELIVERS AND WHEN COMPARED TO ITS COMPETITORS. OTHER COMPANIES LIKE HP, SAMSUNG, ASUS HAVE PRODUCTS WITH QUITE SIMILAR CONFIGURATION AT MUCH LESSER PRICE. BUT WHEN IT COMES TO AFTER SALES SERVICE DELL IS THE BEST AMONG OTHERS. HP WITH THE MOST PATHETIC SERVICE. (I USED HP DV6 7040TX AND WITHING 4 MONTHS IT STOPPED WORKING. I COMPLAINED IT TO HP COSTUMER CARE AND THEY TOOK IT TO REPAIR AND DID NOTHING AND STILL HAVE THE LAPTOP WITH THEM. SUBMITTED IT ON 5TH DEC 2012 AND HAVEN'T GOT IT BACK EVEN TODAY 11TH FEB 2013, THIS IS HOW PATHETIC THEY ARE ! NOT BEING BIAS YOU CAN SEARCH IT ON THE NET AND YOU WILL FIND A LOT OF PEOPLE WITH ISSUES UNSOLVED WITH HP). ASUS DOES NOT HAVE MANY SERVICE CENTERS IN INDIA BUT DO HAVE A DESCENT SERVICE. SAMSUNG ALSO HAS PRETTY WELL AFTER SALE SERVICE.

RATING THE PRODUCT

PROCESSOR: 8.5/10
RAM: 8/10
HDD: 8/10
BUIT QUALITY: 8.5/10
SOUND: 8/10
DISPLAY 5.5/10

GAMING: 8.5/10
MULTITASKING: 9/10
CONNECTIVITY: 8/10
AFTER SALES SERVICE: 9.5/10

TOTAL : 81.5/100

VERDICT

THE LAPTOP IS VERY GOOD AND IS ONE OF THE BEST OPTION TO CHOOSE IN I7 CATEGORY. IF YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH AT BARGAINING (LIKE ME :P GOT IT FOR RS/- 58500) YOU MAY GET THE LAPTOP AT MUCH LOWER PRICE. ITS TOTALLY WORTH IT.

SAGAR KAPOOR PHOTOGRAPHY REVIEW:

Just one word.....AWESOME.
I recently bought a Nikon D7100, which is a 24 megapixel camera. As the superhero Hollywood movies say : WITH GREAT POWERS COMES GREAT RESPONSIBILITY. Its the same with cameras WITH GREAT CAMERAS COMES GREAT FILE SIZES. A normal class 4 SD card which often comes with DSLRS these days, cannot match upto the cameras speed. The transfer rate are extremely slow, and that's where this baby steps in. With a speed of 45MB/s it performs brilliantly. The buffer capacity is good, built quality, like all SanDisk products --AWESOME. It performs marvelously with cameras like
CANNON- 550D,600D,50D,60D,70D,6D .
NIKON-,D3200,D5200,D90,D7000,D7100,D300,D300s and good with the D600. The card works well with crop sensor cameras and few fullframes, however its ability to maintain the speed starts fading as you go towards higher models like the Cannon 7d,5d mark 2,3, Nikon D800 and above. There are no cons as such of this card, infact it is perfect for ( as i like to say baby DSLRs ) midrange DSLRs and few semi pro DSLRs, which make it a must buy for those who shoot sports or wildlife with the above mentioned cameras. Others who own more advanced or higher range cameras they could consider it as an alternate (emergency or backup) sd card. They should consider cards with speeds 90MB/s or more. MY RATING: 8.4/10

Price: Rs. 20653
In Stock. Delivered in 2-3 business days.
55-300 A GREAT LENS BUT !!
on 25 April 13
Sagar rated:

I LIKE CLICKING WILDLIFE, SPECIALLY BIRDS AND SOMETIMES THE MOON. I RECENTLY BOUGHT A NIKON D7100 AND WAS SEARCHING FOR A GOOD ZOOM LENS WITHING THE BUDGET OF RS 25000-30000. I WAS CONFUSED WHICH ONE SHOULD I BUY, THE 70-300 OR THE 55-300. NIKON D7100 IS A DX BODY AND THE 55-300 LENS IS ALSO A DX LENS. SO NO ALTERATION IN THE MAGNIFICATION AS SUCH, BUT THE 70-300MM IS A FX LENS, THAT MEANS 70-300 WILL BE 1.5X (CROP FACTOR) MORE THAT IS 105-400MM, WHICH SOUNDS GOOD FOR A PERSON LOOKING FOR LONG RANGE LENS AT LOW PRICE. BUT BOTH THE LENSES HAVE MINIMUM APERTURE OF F4.5-5.6 WHICH MEANS NOT MUCH LIGHT WILL ENTER AND THE IMAGES PRODUCED WILL BE DARK AT HIGH SHUTTER SPEEDS. IN PHOTOGRAPHY LIGHT IS EVERY THING. IN THAT CASE SPENDING 10K MORE FOR A SLIGHTLY BETTER LENS (70-300) WITH SAME APERTURE IS NOT A GOOD IDEA. THIS IS THE BEST LENS AVAILABLE IN THIS PRICE RANGE, HERE ARE SOME OF THE PROS AND CONS OF THE LENS.

PROS
GOOD BUILD
GOOD RANGE
SHARPE
HAS VR
HAS AUTO-FOCUS MOTOR

CONS
SLIGHTLY SLOW FOCUS
HAS AUTO AND MANUAL SWITCH BUT NO M/A SWITCH
HOOD NOT SO GOOD

OTHER THAN THESE CONS THE LENS IS GREAT AT THE PRICE RANGE.
RATING: 7.5/10

THE AWESOME NIFTY FIFTY (SKP REVIEW)
on 05 July 13
Sagar rated:

SAGAR KAPOOR PHOTOGRAPHY : Primes are always better than any other type of lenses. They are the sharpest and the lightest of the lenses. When it comes to prime lenses, 50mm gets an edge over other primes. 50mm ,feels just the right lens, as the focal length is not more or less, when it comes to portrait or landscape photography. Whereas 85mm is considered ideal for portraits, 50mm on a DX body gives you approx 75mm length which is quite close to the excellent 85mm prime lens, and that too at less than half the cost. The 50mm 1.8 or 1.4 are superb lenses and perform well in low light situations. With an amazing depth of field the lens over rules the 35mm prime lens. There is not much to complain about the 50mm lenses, except that few other brands manufacturing these lenses are not that well built when compared to Nikon or Cannon. In the end i would like to say that this nifty fifty is a must have lens.
Here are some of the pros and cons, well more pros of the lens than any cons .
PROS
GREAT SHARPNESS
CREATES BEAUTIFUL BOKEHS
AWESOME DEPTH OF FIELD
LOW LIGHT PERFORMANCE
SUPER FAST AUTO FOCUS
HAS M/A SWITCH
GOOD BUILT (NIKON OR CANNON)
LIGHTWEIGHT
SIZE

CONS
NON TILL NOW HOWEVER THE QUALITY OF THE LENS MAY VARY FROM BRAND TO BRAND ( EXCEPT NIKON OR CANNON)

GO FOR IT

Without thinking...go for it. Not just because the quality of sound is good but because its long lasting too. With very few cons these headphones are the best ones you can get at this price range. Comparing to Skullcandy's Rs 500/- headphones these are much more comfortable, better built, sturdy and have bit better sound quality than the skull's. There is not much to say about them..so here are few pros and cons of this product.
PROs
good built quality (8/10)
sturdy (8.5/10)
good wire strength (9/10)
comfortable (7.8/10)
good sound quality ( 6.5/10)

CONs
Low sound (not loud enough like the Samsung or Philips earphones but has no distortion at higher end)
Ok bass (Bass lovers wont be satisfied with but wont be disappointing either)

There are alternative options available to this but they are priced more than they should be. So making this one of the best earphones available at this price range. TILL NOW.
MY RATING: 7.1/10
