Micromax finally launched it's much awaited smartphone 'Canvas 4'- a 5" phablet at a price of  17,999. It is a successor of Micromax Canvas HD , which was one of the most popular smarphones.

Canvas 4
The popularity and fast-growth of Micromax smartphones in Tech-Market is because of the perfect blend of features and economical pricing. But this time micromax seems to have taken the different turn. With the Canvas 4, the company's key focus areas are the build and construction of the device and a differentiated user experience.

The design of Canvas 4 is simple and sleek and much similar as its
predecessor. The only new thing in Canvas 4 design is aluminium casing that surrounds the edges and gives a phone a premium look. To avoid scratches it has a Corning Gorilla Glass at the front. 

The Canvas 4 has a 5" IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels that results in a 294 ppi density. The Phone's viewing angle is very impressive but the colour reproduction disappoints a bit. The screen is responsive and Navigation is very smooth. The phone can be unlocked either by shaking or blowing air.

The Canvas 4 is equipped with a 13 megapixels rear camera and 5 megapixels front camera for video calling. You can record a 1080p HD Video with Canvas 4. Geo-tagging,4-way Panorama, touch focus, smile and face detection are some of the features it has. It also has a burst shot mode that lets you capture up to 99 photos in less than 15 seconds. Isn't it impressive ?

Company has tried to do something new with Canvas 4 by adding some cool features that actually give it an edge over its predecessor. But as far as the chipset is concerned there are not much improvements. Canvas 4 is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex A7 processor and is supported by 1 GB of RAM.

No Doubt Canvas 4 has got some cool features and has an edge over it's predecessor but is that enough to spend 17,999 on a Micromax product?

Images and a video of Apple's rumoured 'budget iPhone' recently made an appearance on the web.The photos come courtesy of a site creating Android knock-off handsets, Techdy.

Techdy claims to have got their hands on the much talked about Apple's budget iPhone shell , possibly made up of polycarbonate.

The images reveal a good looking rounded-design handset with 4" Display and having one speaker grill at the bottom. It looks more like the original iPod classic rather than an iPhone.

The new article at Techdy blog, written by Chris Chang (Editor-in-Chief of M.I.C Gadget) claims that the budget iPhone will be made from polycarbonate materials. It will have a similar 4" Display screen as in iPhone 5 and having a shape much similar as original iPod classic.

This report maybe genuine because Chris Chang has been much accurate in the past with iDevice design predictions published at M.I.C Gadget. Or it maybe a Publicity Stunt by Techdy Blog to Promote its new "Basic Bear" product - an Android powered smartphone with a much similar design of the above purported low cost iPhone.

Battery Low - Smartphone
Are you fed up of your smartphone's poor battery life and 'Battery Low' warning? Here are some Android apps that can make your life easier by boosting your smartphone's battery life significantly.
Be it task management or multi tasking, Android has improved in with each function as a Platform.But one of the first complaints from new smartphone users is the poor Battery-life. I was also unsatisfied with my smartphone's battery-life and spent some time exploring a number of Battery saver apps on PlayStore, and i have become fond of some of them. Here's a list of my Favorite-5-Battery-Saver-App.





Juice Defender
 



It is a powerful yet easy to use power manager app specifically designed to extend the battery life of your Android device. Packed with smart functions, it automatically and transparently manages the most battery draining components, like 3G/4G connectivity and WiFi. 
Standout features: Multiple versions to suit needs; user profiles; scheduling; and location-aware features


It is a Powerful, smart tool to reduce battery loss and prolong battery life by 50%. It intelligently manages your battery use to your own needs after configured. With pre-set modes and smart toggle control, GO Battery Saver & Widget enables you to configure the battery saving schedule to your unique needs. After configured, it runs by itself and intelligently switches modes, turns on/off toggles as with different battery level, phone status, or time. It can't be easier!
Standout features: Handy widgets; multiple user modes; very clean interface; a steady stream of development updates





Unlike other battery savers like JuiceDefender that require regular user manual actions, GreenPower is an easy battery saver that is fully automatic: Once configured, it runs and saves your battery by itself. It does so by smartly managing Wifi, Mobile data, Bluetooth and Screen Brightness: Turning them off when you don't need them, but ensure minimum disturbance: Automatic turned ON when needed by you or by other apps (e.g retrieving mails).
Standout Features -: Battery life indicator in notification area,Wifi management,Mobile data management.

  

You don't need to manually turn on/off the Internet connection anymore. This app extends battery life by using a smart algorithm to turn on/off the Internet connection, reduce battery consumption and data usage, but still keep the important background data synchronized.
Standout Features -:
Auto manage 3G/4G/WiFi connection in the background
Show battery level and usage in the status bar
Efficient & easy to use

  
 
It is One of the easy to use Battery saver i've ever encountered.It Automatically disable WiFi and data connection after you turning off your screen(with 15~20 secs latency).One of the interesting feature of this app is Genius Sync, which allows app to sync in every 15 minutes.
Standout features -: Easy connections toggling; sleeping mode; staggered sync; and battery percentage in notification bar.

Hello Googlers ! I frequently get emails askin for 'How to start a blog' ? Although i am not a Blogging expert but i decided to share some of the blogging tips for begginers so that i can direct those readers to this post :)

There are many things you can do with your blog to make it more responsive and popular but here are some basic tips for begginers who want to make a successful blog :



1. Choose The Right Topic : Blog is like a personal diary, choose the topic that you are familiar with or you are passionate about. Pick one that you can write about at any time of the day. If you don't have the passion for your topic you will not be able to hold your readers. If you stick with the right topic sooner or later your blog will be a success.

2. Know Your Audience : It is very important to know your audience and the design and content of your blog should match their taste . For e.g. If your audience are mostly corporate proffessionals the design should be simple, elegant and classy. If your intended audience are teenagers then the design and content of your blog would be quite different than a blog targeted to corporates.

3. Content : To be a successful blogger you need to know that you can only attract readers by your content. If your Blog content is good readers will come automatically. Before writing about something do some research on it. Read other blogs or wikipedia article related to that topic. And  Don't try too hard just Write contents that YOU will love to read. Be innovative and creative about your ideas. Rather than writing a big useless post write a post with a good,creative,inspiring and helpful content.

4. Ask For Help : No one is perfect neither you nor me. If you get stuck at any point and need help then don't be afraid to reach out to fellow bloggers for help. Even the most experienced bloggers need help sometimes. The blogging world is an ever-changing place, no one knows everything about blogging. Remember the success of a blog depends on its social network. Therefore be willing to increase your connectivity.

5. Be Yourself : Your blog can't be a success if you aren't true to who you are. Don't try to do so many things just be natural and what you are. Don't worry much about grammatical mistakes and misspellings. No blog is perfect therefore throw perfectionism out of the window. 

6.  Be Patient : There is no magic spell to make your blog popular or attract thousands of readers in a day or a week. The only key to attract readers is a good-content and patience. So Chillax, dont think too much about traffic and popularity just be patient and keep blogging.

7. Be Willing To Learn : Everyday is a new day with some new topics to learn about. There are many features and tools that keeps changing frequently. Keep an eye on the latest features, tools and widgets maybe a new tool or updated feature can make your life easier and enhance your blog reader's experiences .
