Let’s get a few things clear, I chose OnePlus after a two-year stint with Google Pixel 3, a top of the line 2018 flagship with a world-class camera. Also, all the other phones I’ve owned, be it the Nexus 5x or the Mi A1, have had vanilla Android OS.
Coming from Pixel 3, a $799 flagship, the $729 OnePlus 9 might seem like a downgrade but it does match up in specs
Snapdragon 888 (latest and greatest)
8/12 GB RAM
128/256 GB UFS 3.1 Storage — (fastest in the market)
4500 mAh Battery and 65W Wired charging
The top app preferences of an Android fanboy
Why would anyone want to read a list of my favourite Android apps?
Well, here’s why:
1. I love tech, everything associated with it, hence I pride myself in finding and using the best of everything tech.
2. Although a late adopter of Android (I had a Windows phone earlier if you can believe it), I am a huge fan of the operating system and love to play around with it.
3. Trying out new and useful apps is a hobby of mine, and I strive to stock my phone with the…

Since work-from-home has become the new normal, most of you would be contemplating an upgrade to a better laptop for work as well as home needs. Let’s go through all the factors that make a good laptop.
Anything above the ideal configuration does not exhibit a marked difference during normal tasks. …
True wireless earbuds are the rage these days, and rightly so because they do allow for an altogether unique level of freedom while using gadgets. Don’t believe me? Well, read on!
I am here to convince you why you should buy True Wireless Earbuds and why it should be the Jabra Elite 75t (or the Elite Active 75t).

Let’s start with why you need Truly Wireless Earbuds in the first place.
I’ll admit beforehand that I am a big fan of Google, its products, its ideas and its innovations. (I’ll try to be fair in this review, but I can’t guarantee it)

I’ve always wondered how some people took unbelievably detailed photos using mobiles. I tried different phones, various modes, and a variety of angles but to no avail, my photos were just not as good as theirs. Maybe, I was not a good enough photographer.
Or so I thought.
Recently I came across lenses for mobiles, offered by Moment. (This is not a sponsored post, I am genuinely impressed.) That was when I realized that all those photos supposedly promoting the excellence of mobile cameras, were taken with the help of accessories.
Predictably enough, I jumped the bandwagon and bought one…
(FYI, that’s not me in the photo.)
Let me start this post with a hard truth.
I am boring.
I don’t have an interesting life story to tell, I don’t have an all-consuming passion towards anything, nor am I particularly talented.
I had a good school life, living in the shadow of my teacher mom, completely oblivious of the nefarious activities, or for that matter, any activities other than studies, that took place in the school. I was an all-out nerd. I never had parties, I read books to pass time and seldom talked to the opposite sex. If I…
I haven’t been able to conjure up any catchy names for this post, so “Mumbai” it will remain.
(There is a very high possibility that any Mumbaikar reading this would promptly throw away his/her phone in disgust by the deep understanding of Mumbai that I pompously proclaim to have obtained in my three-day visit. You would be right too. It is easy for anyone to look at something and string two words together derogating it but living it is an entirely different thing. However, I have a bad habit of writing down what I feel. …
To travel is to live.
Being my first real post, why didn’t I write about Paris, or New York, or Mumbai or some other well -known place?
Well, the answer is simple. I haven’t been to any such fancy places.
Akathumuri is a sleepy little lakeside village in Thiruvananthapuram district of Kerala. Why should I bother to write an entire post about this? Because it’s worth it.
Most of the tourist spots in Kerala are teeming with people. Only very few places remain undiscovered and retain their natural beauty. This is one such place.
Kerala tourism describes it as “a…
To get a hang of who I am, I will share with you a journal written two years ago, when I was 20 years young.
How quickly the years pass, I remember the year 2002 when I was in Delhi, and I lied for the first time to my father — that I was unwell and couldn’t go to the school that day. So he took me to Deer Park, where we walked a lot — me clinging onto his hand, and in the afternoon we had Maggi that mum had packed for me. I remember 2005 when we…
