Over the past year we've seen a galaxy (pun intended) of all-singing, all-dancing smartphones, but there was only one launch that could stop the whole planet in its tracks. If they'd sold tickets to the iPhone unveiling, they would have been snapped up quicker than the canapés at a piranha convention. Thinner, lighter and more powerful, the new iteration of the world's most influential gadget is unmistakably Apple because it's also restrained, shunning pumped-up specs for style, simplicity and a build quality that puts the competition to shame. Try Asphalt 7 (as seen in pic) to set your retinas scorching on the new 4in screen, the first game to be optimized for the new size. This 7.6mm-thin, 112g gadget is so important that we felt its presence long before it arrived. Mostly in the form of rumors on the internet.

Apple iPhone 5


Smaller is better, no? With local players Vodafone and Airtel placing orders for Nano SIMs, the launch of the iPhone 5 here is imminent.


The new Nano SIM takes lesser space than the Micro SIM. Cutting your current SIM won’t help because it is even thinner. Wait for the official launch, unless you feel very, very adventurous.

Game on

The new A6 chip has a CPU and a graphics processor claimed to be twice as fast as the A5 chip in the 4S and iPad 2. Apple says this allows for ‘console-quality’ graphics. Ask no more.

HD FaceTime

FaceTime gets a 720p camera and the option to use your network connection as well as Wi-Fi. Siri, meanwhile, gets improved local search skills, which should help.


The new screen is still a dazzlingly crisp 326ppi Retina display, but it’s now a 4in, 1136x640, 16:9 window. More space for app icons and films, but there’ll be black bars down the side of some apps.

Engineering marvel

Diamond-cut aluminum edges, textured anodized surfaces and glass inserts fitted to within microscopic tolerances come together to offer a luxurious feel as you hold the device.

iPhone5 - should you upgrade?

The resemblance between the iPhone 5 and the 4S is striking. But it is only when you look closer and pick up the device that you begin to truly absorb the amount of micron-level precision engineering that’s gone into its making. If I had to buy Apple’s latest toy, I would buy it for its solid build, larger screen, the seamless way iOS 6 gets things done and LTE, which along with the power of the new A6 processor, will allow you lightning-quick browsing if you are in Bangalore or Kolkata (thanks to Airtel’s 4G network).

2.    Nokia Lumia 920 - Nokia's great yellow hope


Just before Apple unveiled the iPhone 5 and the internet almost hypegasmed itself inside out, a little-known rubber manufacturer from Finland launched a phone of its own. And you know what? It looks pretty good. The Lumia 920 adds half an inch to the iPhone's 4in screen matches its 4G innards and includes wireless charging and NFC inside its primary colored, polycarbonate package. It's also one of the first to get the new Windows Phone 8, which means a more customizable home screen, updated Nokia Maps (with offline mode and indoor cartography) and ‘lenses' which add tricks and filters to the 8.7MP camera. How ‘do you like them, Apple?

Clearing it up

It might not be a 41-megapixel monster like Nokia's PureView 808, but the 920's PureView snapper combines an f/2.0 aperture and floating lens tech for bright, smear-free snaps.

Lens flair

A new on-screen ‘lenses' button links to the 920's camera apps. Our favorite is Smart Shoot, which combines multiple shots to remove unwanted objects from your pics, post-snap.

4G - All you need to know

It's fast

Theoretical maximums of the new 4G network make for some exciting reading - figures such as 100Mbps have been hollered, although a real-life download speed of 25-35Mbps is more realistic for now. Rest assured, webpages on 4G should run like Usain Bolt over hot coals. Apps too should be able to load around a fifth of the time as they do over 3G, and 1080p YouTube videos should buffer and play in under 10 seconds. That's bloody quick!

It's here

Currently, Airtel is the only network here that supports the 4G network, and you can enjoy 4G speeds if you are in Bangalore or Kolkata. 4G data plans are offered at rentals as low as $17.99, up to $54.99. The plans include free data usage between 6-30GB. But the remaining players aren't far behind. Reliance has a massive 4G rollout plan that has us interested. If things go according to plan, over 700 cities in India should be able to enjoy 4G coverage. However, considering the way things go here, it looks like a distant dream right now. However, we are mighty hopeful for a zippy 4G future.

Nokia Wireless Charging Pillow

One of several brightly colored accessories announced alongside the 920, the Wireless Charging Pillow is a powered cushion that will juice your Lumia without wires. It's made by Fatboy, a company better known for its giant bean bags, but we're not sure sitting on this mini version would be such a good idea.

Nokia Purity Pro by Monster

Monster might've parted ways with Dr Dre, but Nokia has taken the producer's place. The Purity Pro Stereo Headset has Beats-esque styling, but the inclusion of NFC tech for quick Bluetooth pairing with your phone shows that Monster may be OK with forgetting about Dre after all.

Nokia Play 360

Much like the Purity Pros, Nokia's Play 360 wireless speakers use NFC to connect to your phone with a tap, allowing you to stream your music straight to it. The inbuilt rechargeable battery runs 20 hours (depending on how hard you rock it). Buy two of these and you can have stereo sound for your house parties. We like.
