Galaxy M10 vs Redmi 6: Premium ambitions under Rs 10,000

first_img Next Amritanshu Mukherjee New DelhiFebruary 7, 2019UPDATED: February 8, 2019 08:12 IST HIGHLIGHTSWith its narrow-bezels, the Galaxy M10 sports a bigger 6.2-inch LCD display.The Redmi 6 looks dated with its older 18:9 display with uniform but thick bezels.With a bigger 3400mAh battery, the Galaxy M10 can easily last an entire day with moderate usage.Until now, if you had to buy a smartphone for less than Rs 10,000, the Xiaomi Redmi 6 would be our easy pick of the myriad of options from various manufacturers. Xiaomi has been at the forefront for offering a complete value-for-money device in the sub-Rs 10,000 category, often beating the likes of Asus and Motorola. However, Samsung, which is another major name in this segment, has finally come up with a new offering with an aim to capture a major share of the market. Their Galaxy M10 is the most recent addition to their smartphone lineup. With base variant starting at Rs 7,990, it challenges the Redmi 6 with a host of modern features.So, at almost Rs 8,000, how do these two smartphones fare on paper? Let’s find out.Galaxy M10 vs Redmi 6: Design and buildEven before we start, it is evident that the Samsung Galaxy M10 is the more modern looking of the two smartphones. The sleek and curvy design with a narrow-bezel notched display makes it one of the best-looking smartphones in this price range. The waterdrop notch makes for a bigger and immersive 6.2-inch display. There’s no metal or glass body, but the plastic unibody with a glossy finish has been crafted in a way to make it feel more premium. In short, the Galaxy M10 feels like a smartphone above its segment. The Redmi 6, on the other hand, looks dated with its older 18:9 display with uniform but thick bezels. The rear of the phone sports a dual camera setup with a centre-mounted fingerprint sensor – the latter is absent from the Galaxy M10. While the build adheres to Xiaomi’s typically high standards, the overall design feels outdated when compared to Galaxy M10.advertisementGalaxy M10 vs Redmi 6: DisplayWith its narrow-bezels, the Galaxy M10 sports a bigger 6.2-inch LCD display. This is an HD+ display with a wider aspect ratio of 19:9. In our review, the panel has impressed with a great performance – vibrant colours and adequate brightness. The narrow bezels make for a fairly immersive viewing experience. The Redmi 6 with its thick bezels has a 5.4-inch IPS LCD display that renders an image at a resolution of HD+. The panel is impressive though with fairly bright colours and contrasts. When placed side-by-side, both the Redmi 6 and Galaxy M10 hardly differ in screen performance, but the M10’s bigger size is more preferable.Galaxy M10 vs Redmi 6: PerformanceThis is where it gets polarizing. The Galaxy M10 is built around an Exynos 7870 chipset with a choice of either 2GB or 3GB RAM and 16GB or 32GB storage. The Samsung phones run on a custom Samsung Experience 9.5UI built on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. For the most part, we found the phone in our review to perform decently in terms of basic smartphone loads such as web browsing, video streaming, texting and others. The UI is optimised well and doesn’t lag or stutter unless you play demanding games such as PUBG MOBILE.The Redmi 6 uses a MediaTek Helio P22 chipset which is paired with 3GB RAM as standard and a choice of either 32GB or 64GB storage. As with all Xiaomi smartphones, it runs on MIUI 10 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The Redmi 6 is as capable as the Galaxy M10 while used as a daily driver. It will work without any stress with web browsing, video streaming and texting. In benchmarks, the Redmi 6’s Helio P22 chip excels the Samsung’s Exynos 7870 chipset by a tiny margin, but the difference isn’t noticeable.Galaxy M10 vs Redmi 6: CameraThe Galaxy M10 gains a slight advantage over the Redmi 6 in terms of camera performance. The M10 sports a 13-megapixel + 5-megapixel dual rear camera setup while the Redmi 6 sports a 12-megapixel + 5-megapixel setup for the rear. The primary sensor in the M10 has an aperture of F1.9 while the Redmi 6’s unit only has F2.2. Also, the 5-megapixel secondary sensor on the M10 is a wide-angle unit, which gives a completely different perspective to shutterbugs. In real-world situations though, both the phones are comparable. These cameras can be best used in daylight situations with ample light. Low light performance drops drastically.Both the phones feature 5-megapixel selfie cameras, but the Redmi 6 gains a slight advantage with its superior AI portrait mode.Galaxy M10 vs Redmi 6: BatteryWith a bigger 3400mAh battery, the Galaxy M10 can easily last an entire day with moderate usage. The Redmi 6 with its smaller 3000mAh battery will stretch to the end of an entire day if used cautiously. The Galaxy M10 gains an advantage with a 10W fast charging, which the Redmi 6 lacks.advertisementGalaxy M10 vs Redmi 6: Which one should you buy?Both the Samsung Galaxy M10 and Redmi 6 seem similar in the real world but are wildly different in terms of specifications and capabilities. The Galaxy M10 is the easy pick of the two – thanks to its bigger and modern waterdrop notched display, a bigger 3400mAh battery, a well optimised and polished UI and a wide angle camera. However, at Rs 7,990, you only get 2GB RAM and 16GB storage.The Redmi 6 offers 3GB RAM as standard in comparison but seems like an inferior product in many ways. The Helio P22 and the AI camera algorithms are the only reason you should buy the Redmi 6. Rest everywhere, the Galaxy M10 takes the lead by a substantial margin and, is, therefore, our pick in the sub-Rs 10,000 segment.ALSO READ | Xiaomi Redmi 6 review: Worthy Redmi 5 successor and one of the best phones under Rs 10,000ALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy M10 review: Samsung makes budget phones great againALSO READ | Asus Zenfone Max M2 review: Stock Android priced in India at Rs 9,999, Asus M2 packs a punchGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

And they put four guys there who don’t understand football to look at a slow motion replay … It’s just not possible!!!””How is a guy going to hold his hand behind his back,” he wrote in Portuguese on Instagram, before finishing with an expletive commonly used in Brazil.Neymar missed both legs of the tie after injuring his foot in January.The Brazil captain joined the French club from Barcelona in August 2017 for a world record fee and the Champions League has become the holy grail for him and a club that have spent big to fulfil that goal.However, this latest defeat marked the third time in three years they have failed to make the last eight of the Champions League.Even though Wednesday’s loss was just their third in 51 European games at the Parc des Princes, they have never reached the semi-finals of the continent’s premier club competition.advertisementAlso Watch:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Ordered 3D glasses to watch World Cup: Tweets Rayudu after exclusion

first_img Press Trust of India New DelhiApril 16, 2019UPDATED: April 16, 2019 19:02 IST Ambati Rayudu took to twitter to express his reaction after being excluded from the Indian World Cup squad. ( Courtesy by BCCI)Ambati Rayudu has ‘ordered 3D glasses’ to watch the World Cup, a day after he was pipped by the ‘three-dimensional’ Vijay Shankar in the Indian squad for the showpiece.All-rounder Shankar was preferred over the 33-year-old Rayudu for the contentious number four spot in India’s World Cup squad.”Just Ordered a new set of 3d glasses to watch the world cup,” Rayudu wrote on his twitter handle Tuesday.Just Ordered a new set of 3d glasses to watch the world cup .. Ambati Rayudu (@RayuduAmbati) April 16, 2019Disappointment knocked on Rayudu’s door when his name was left out of the squad just a few months after captain Virat Kohli had more or less earmarked him for the number four position.”We did give a few more chances to Rayudu but Vijay Shankar gives three dimensions. He can bat, if the conditions are overcast, he can bowl, plus he is a fielder. We are looking at Vijay Shankar as a No. 4,” chief selector MSK Prasad said Tuesday, justifying his selection.Prasad’s view was seconded by former captain Sunil Gavaskar, who called Shankar a ‘very handy cricketer.’On the other hand, in his quest to ramp up his limited-overs game, Rayudu had even given up on white ball cricket but he has struggled to be consistent.Three poor outings against Australia in the five-match ODI home series seemed to have put paid to his hopes. The experienced batsman also could not light up the Indian Premier League in a way he would have liked.advertisementWhile he enjoys an average of 47.05 in 55 ODIs, the three failures against Australia hurt him.The batsman was the team’s number four since Asia Cup last year. Between then and the home series against Australia, Rayudu scored one century and four fifties.A 113-ball 90 in New Zealand earlier this year paved the way for India’s victory after they were tottering at one stage.He played only two ODIs during the tour of Australia, but was the highest run-getter for India in the ODIs on the tour of New Zealand, with 190 runs in five innings at an average of 63.33 and a strike rate of 82.25.But the performances were not enough for him to ensure a ticket to the United Kingdom.Also Read | 3-dimensional Vijay Shankar preferred over Ambati Rayudu for India’s World Cup squadAlso Read | Why focus only on Rishabh Pant?

( AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSHe wouldn’t have read an article about him, he’s hardly ever on social media: ClarkeMS Dhoni is part of India’s playing XI for big match vs AustraliaRohit Sharma also said India players weren’t aware of the gloves controversyFormer Australia captain Michael Clarke has said MS Dhoni will be least bothered by the off-field controversy surrounding his wicketkeeping gloves with Army Insignia when the veteran takes the field during India’s much-anticipated clash against Australia.Dhoni was spotted sporting a pair of gloves with a “Balidaan Badge” during India’s World Cup 2019 opener vs South Africa in Southampton on Wednesday.After the International Cricket Council asked the Insignia to be removed from Dhoni’s gloves, a section of Inidan fans created a stir while backing the World Cup-winning former captain.Nationalistic debates dominated the narrative in the lead up to the big India-Australia clash in London but Clarke believes Dhoni wouldn’t even be aware of the controversy.Speaking to India Today from London, Michael Clarke said: “I wish it bothered. He will be as focussed as ever. He wouldn’t have read an article about him, he’s hardly ever on social media. He couldn’t care less.”Vice-captain Rohit Sharma, speaking to the press on the eve of the big clash between the former champions, said he wasn’t aware of the Dhoni gloves row.The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had written to the ICC to reconsider its directive on Dhoni’s gloves but the apex body of world cricket stuck to its decision and asked the India wicketkeeper-batsman to take off the Insignia.”I have no idea about it at all. I am not the captain I don’t know what is happening with that and have nothing to say about it. Let’s see what happens tomorrow,” Rohit told reporters.advertisementIndia Today reported that MS Dhoni and the team management were ready to play it by the rules. According to the ICC rules, equipment and clothing regulations do not permit the display of messages that relate to political, religious or racial activities or causes during an international match.India on Sunday won the toss against Australia and opted to bat at The Oval in London.

Hardik Pandya has come back really well when put under pressure in this World Cup: Virat Kohli

first_img Next Reuters LeedsJuly 4, 2019UPDATED: July 4, 2019 10:23 IST Hardik Pandya is the fifth-bowler at the World Cup 2019 and has been playing really well (Photo: Reuters)HIGHLIGHTSHardik Pandya has taken 8 wickets from 7 matches so far for Team IndiaHardik took 3 for 60 in Tuesday’s victory against BangladeshThe all-rounder has bowled his full 10 overs vs Australia, Afghanistan, England and BangladeshFor someone as flamboyant off the pitch as on it, it is fitting that Hardik Pandya’s transformation into India’s reliable fifth bowler has been nothing less than spectacular at this year’s Cricket World Cup.The 25-year-old, known for his flash clothes and love for bling, arrived in England with many wondering if he was good enough for the fifth bowler’s job in his maiden World Cup.The seam-bowling all-rounder has since effortlessly dispelled any shred of doubt with a string of stellar performances with the ball.He bowled his full 10 overs against Australia, Afghanistan, England and Bangladesh. India’s opening fixture against South Africa was the only match where the opposition lasted 50 overs and Pandya did not complete his quota.He now inspires so much confidence in Virat Kohli that the India captain went with only five bowlers in Tuesday’s victory against Bangladesh which secured their place in the semi-finals.”We experienced that Hardik, when put under pressure has, come back really well in this tournament…” Kohli said of what prompted his “gamble” with the bowling attack.”He finds a way to contain the runs and get you wickets. He’s really looking forward to do stuff for the team, that’s really helping his cricket.”Pandya claimed 3-60 on Tuesday and his victims included Bangladesh talisman Shakib Al Hasan, who top-scored for his side with 66, and Liton Das, who he dismissed with a trademark short ball.WISER PANDYAThe all-rounder has fine-tuned his bowling and appears to have returned wiser from a brief suspension earlier this year for his comments about women on a television show in January.advertisementKohli suggested that underneath Pandya’s casual exterior lies a cerebral cricketer who draws from his experience as an all-rounder to outwit batsmen.”When he comes to bowl, he thinks like a batsman,” Kohli said. “He actually wants the ball under pressure because he thinks like a batter, so he can check their body language and know what to bowl and when. He’s bowling really well for us.”Bowling coach Bharat Arun had earlier explained how much Pandya had evolved to fit the fifth bowler’s role.”It was a big challenge for him to bowl those 10 overs, and he realised that to be able to bowl those 10 overs I need to develop a certain armoury in my bowling’,” Arun said in Manchester last month.”And that’s what he’s worked on. He’s worked on his slow balls, his slow bouncers, and he’s also worked on perfecting his bouncers.””All these put together have given him the confidence to go through those 10 overs.”Also Read | World Cup 2019: How the points table looks like after England reach semi-finalsAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Kane Williamson rues lack of partnerships on difficult wicket after England lossAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

World Cup 2019: Each player would have some boxes to tick against Sri Lanka, says Dinesh Karthik

first_img Indo-Asian News Service LeedsJuly 5, 2019UPDATED: July 5, 2019 21:59 IST Dinesh Karthik made his World Cup debut against Bangladesh. (AP Photo)India have already qualified for the knockout stages of the World Cup, but Dinesh Karthik believes the Men in Blue would love to fine-tune their skills when they take on Sri Lanka at the Headingley Cricket Stadium on Saturday.”I think at the end of the day a few of the batters would want to have a good hit. Even for the bowlers, for that matter, it’s important that they work on the things that they want to do. I think there is scope for improvement in all aspects of our game.”I think we’ve been playing a good tournament, but I’m sure that personally each player would have some boxes to tick and I think we’ll all be looking to do that,” Karthik pointed out.Karthik added that the team was not looking beyond the Lanka game at the moment. “Look, first up is Sri Lanka. I think there are a few things a few players would want to achieve personally and as a team as well. We’d definitely want to play the best game that we can.Also Read | What happened last time India met Sri Lanka in World Cup?Also Read | India vs Sri Lanka World Cup 2019: Ravindra Jadeja likely to play at LeedsBut talks of the semifinal are bound to happen and Karthik said that all the teams are strong and looking in fine form.”Look, to be very honest, it’s a World Cup semifinal, so I think all the other three teams, apart from India, will look forward to that game. It’s hard for me to say which team will be a threat. But on any given day any team can stand up. And that’s the beauty of a tournament like World Cup, because once you hit the semifinal mark, it’s just that one day, and you’ve got to make sure you stand up on that day.advertisement”We’re really looking forward to it as a team. At the same time, I think we have a game to play in Leeds. We’ll do the best we can tomorrow,” he said.Asked if any of the boys will be rested considering that the Indians have already qualified, Karthik said: “To be very honest, I don’t know. I don’t know what team management is thinking. So obviously that call will be taken by the coach and the captain. Until now I have no clue what they’ve decided on the team yet.”While the England-Pakistan series before the showpiece event saw the players score beyond 300 at will, the same cannot be said of the matches in the World Cup and Karthik said the pressure of performing on the big stage is always there as are the conditions which have helped bowlers.”I think it’s a bit of both. When you’re batting first, it’s about seeing through the initial phase when the ball is new and then you have the ability to decide what the par score is and try and get there. When you’re batting, I think the wicket changes a bit, becomes slightly slower and helps the spinners a little bit.”For a lot of the teams, they’re bowling cross-seam and the wicket has been a little up-and-down as well. It’s not been that easy to execute shots. Also, this is a World Cup, so obviously there’s a bit of scoreboard pressure. I think a lot of teams have fallen prey to that as well,” he explained.Also See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

This tiny motor can ‘walk’ to perform and assemble complex tasks: MIT

first_img Next Indo-Asian News Service New DelhiJuly 6, 2019UPDATED: July 6, 2019 16:15 IST This tiny motor can ‘walk’ to perform and assemble complex tasks: MITA team of US researchers has developed a tiny “walking” motor that can move back and forth across a surface or turn the gears of a machine.The mobile motor could pave the way for robots to assemble complex structures — including other robots, said the team from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).These tiny robots to work in confined spaces”One emerging application is to make tiny robots that can work in confined spaces,” said Professor Neil Gershenfeld.Langford’s initial motor has an ant-like ability to lift seven times its own weight.About this novel motorThe team assembled the novel motor that moves an appendage in discrete mechanical steps, which can be used to turn a gear wheel, and a mobile form of the motor that turns those steps into locomotion, allowing it to “walk” across a surface in a way that is reminiscent of the molecular motors that move muscles.These parts could also be assembled into hands for gripping, or legs for walking, as needed for a particular task, and then later reassembled as those needs change.The ‘digital materials’Gershenfeld refered to them as “digital materials,” discrete parts that can be reversibly joined, forming a kind of functional micro-LEGO.To build in the “brains,” Langford has added part types that contain millimeter-sized integrated circuits, along with a few other part types to take care of connecting electrical signals in three dimensions.The work was set to be presented at the ongoing “International Conference on Manipulation, Automation and Robotics at Small Scales” (MARSS) in Helsinki, Finland.advertisementRead: Education Budget 2019: National Sports Education Board to be set up under Khelo IndiaRead: New IIT-Guwahati Director T.

Guptill got to know how Dhoni felt: Fans react to New Zealand’s Super Over heartbreak in World Cup final

first_img India Today Web Desk LondonJuly 15, 2019UPDATED: July 15, 2019 10:35 IST Martin Guptill was run-out in the super over as England won the World Cup 2019. (Reuters Photo)New Zealand’s openers Martin Guptill has had a torrid World Cup 2019 with the bat but will always be remembered for the two run-outs he was involved in.On July 11, New Zealand had defeated India to qualify in their second successive final of World Cup. Credit for that would partly go to Martin Guptill for that memorable run out of MS Dhoni in the semi-final. Dhoni’s wicket was the final nail in the coffin for India in their 240-run chase. Indian Cricket Team and the fans were left heartbroken after getting knocked out.Come July 14, Martin Guptill’s run-out in the super over restricted New Zealand to 15, thus helping England to win their maiden World Cup title on the basis of more boundaries in the final.New Zealand needed 2 runs to win the World Cup final and Guptill got run-out in his attempt of running back for the second run.This match will certainly go down as one of the best finals in the history of Cricket World Cups. Both teams played high attrition cricket on a pitch where run-making was not always easy.England’s pacers Chris Woakes, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood and Liam Plunkett were brilliant upfront before Lockie Ferguson bowled a sensational final spell to produce some thrilling moments in the World Cup finale.Guptill’s dismissal in the final prompted scores of memes and attacks on social media, with MS Dhoni fans pointing out Karma’ as the main reason behind Kiwi openers run-out in the super over.advertisementButler in an interview said he is a Dhoni fan, Never thought he is this much loyal #MSDhoni #butler #Guptill pic.twitter.com/DhukOiLl45#WeAreEngland Veri (@VickyVjAddict) July 14, 2019Guptill must be feeling how Indians felt when Dhoni got run-out…..@ENGvsNZ #CWC19Final #Guptill pic.twitter.com/vovFb6pBdrNihal Chaturvedi (@nihalpandit_) July 14, 2019New Zealand WC tour in Four pics #Stokes #Guptill #cwc19 #CWC19Final #CWC2019 pic.twitter.com/nonvXb7MGTMr Right (@ms_its_me) July 14, 2019Too much beauty in this picture that’s sportsmanship.
