The less-than-30,000 category just a lot more exciting this year, as we have seen two big names Realme and OnePlus released their budget-friendly phones. The Realme X3 series which includes the Realme X3 and Realme x3 superzoom offers some really good specifications including a telephoto camera for the price. OnePlus recently released its much-hyped Nored smartphone, making it the second affordable mobile from the company. Vivo also went ahead and launched V19, which also good a good rating from the users. These phones make some really good list of the phones that are under Rs. 30,000. But what if you have to choose just one. Don't worry. We are here to help you to make the decision and purchase the best phone for your hard-earned money.
The OnePlus Nord is a new phone from OnePlus and the good news is that it falls into the budget category while providing some of the best specs around. It manages to deliver a similar Android experience as the OnePlus 8, which is a pricier smartphone. OnePlus has kept all the major specs such as the AMOLED display, warp charge, fast charging, and a massive battery power to back up the phone all day long. The OnePlus uses a glass cover on the back and it's more like plastic.
The phone features Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G which does support 5G, that is cool. Overall it is hard to find any flaw in terms of performance. You can play video games or watch videos without getting it too hot or lagging performance. It uses four rear cameras with two front cameras. The primary camera is 48MP and uses the same sensor as the flagship OnePlus 8, complete with optical optimization to eliminate blur and unwanted noise. It can sharpen things in tricky shooting scenarios, like harsh sunlight. The front camera can record in 4K at 60fps.
We are so dependent on our smartphones these days that just a single day without one can feel quite disconcerting and extremely inconvenient, but what about a whole year?

Reports about the Samsung Galaxy S6 PLUS has been leaked online. The device will be a high-end "PLUS" version of the current Galaxy S6 flagship.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 PLUS Model number is (SM-G928) and will be 151mm tall, 73mm wide with 5.5" QHD SuperAMOLED display. The device is also reported be powered by the hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 mobile chipset (10-cores unit). The rest of its rumored specs include 32GB of built-in storage,16MP main camera, and 3,000 mAh battery.
Overall, the Galaxy S6 Plus looks set to square off directly against the next large-screen iPhone, which will also debut in September. Stay Tuned for more details about the device going forward.
Nokia's first Android tablet, Nokia N1, is doing well in China. Nokia N1 went on sale in China today, and the Finnish company exhausted the initial batch of 20,000 units in record time. It only took 4 minutes and 2 seconds to go through all that inventory. It's important to mention that the Tablet is running Android 5.0 Lollipop out-of-the-box.
It looks like Nokia chose to go the flash sale route, perhaps inspired by Xiaomi's success with this model. The next opportunity to buy the N1 will come on January 15th, if you're in China of course. Otherwise, you will have to wait longer as the N1 isn't yet available anywhere else.
Recently, Galaxy Note 6 rumors have been flying around a lot. To add to that mix, the latest rumor suggests that the Note 6 could be featuring a curved 5.8-inch Slim RGB panel with 1440p resolution. However, GSM Helpdesk also adds that the curved display is still just a possibility as Samsung has not yet decided whether to use a curved panel or a flat one. One thing that all rumors are suggesting is the fact that whether it is a curved display or a flat one, the Note 6 WILL feature a 5.8-inch screen.
If reports are to be believed then Samsung will only release a single Note device this year, which means that Edge+ or Note Edge models are no longer a part of Samsung's plans for 2016. That single device will supposedly be powered by a huge 4000mAh battery. This would most likely make the Note 6 slightly bigger in certain dimensions than the Note 5, but it should not really be a problem as the super-successful S7 and S7 Edge are also larger than the S6 and S6 Edge. The beautiful design of the two smartphones make the increased size irrelevant. Add to it the superb battery life on these two devices, and you will probably have a hard time finding a single person who is complaining about the slight increase in bulk.
Other features "leaked" in this rumor include the same 12-megapixel camera as the S7 and S7 Edge, 6GB of RAM and Snapdragon 823/Exynos 8890 SoC. We were already aware of these specs as was reported by us earlier, but how much of this actually makes their way to the actual version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is something that we will have to wait to find out for sure.

A Samsung employee who is only known by his surname "Lee" at the moment, apparently was in a bad gambling debt which amounted to somewhere around $800,000! Just as any other logical person would handle a debt of that size, he decided to steal 8,474 Samsung mobile phones (which are worth a total of $711,000) from Samsung's head office in Suwon, Gyeonggi. If you have not caught on to my sarcasm yet, then let me affirm that it is indeed sarcasm and stealing from your employer or anyone else is definitely not the logical solution to any problem!
The disabled man had apparently started stealing test units meant for developers from way back in the December of 2014. In fact his operation was active till November last year; a timeframe in which he managed to steal an astounding 8,474 Samsung test units. Lee used to pawn these stolen smartphones via a used phone reseller and before long, these handsets, which were never even meant to be on sale, were being sold and used in Vietnam. As Samsung caught a whiff of the con job going on here, the matter was reported to the police. After months of investigation, Lee has finally been found and charged. Although he is clearly a reckless gambler and a thief of massive proportions, one cannot help but be amazed at the efficiency with he had run the con job for all these years without ever being caught once.

Limefuel Lite is a 15,000 mAh Dual-USB Battery Charger Pack With LCD Screen which will cost you only $34.99. Just think about what you could charge with a 15,000 mAh battery. Flagship Android smartphones pack a 3,000 mAh battery on average, so the Limefuel would provide about 5 charges.
And because this unit has dual-USB ports, with 1A and 2.1A output, you could charge your tablet with it, but also your Bluetooth earphones and speakers, Android Wear watch, MiFi router, and more.
The Limefuel Lite also packs a handy LED flash for those power outages or dark nights, and an LCD screen to show you exactly how much battery you have left and which ports you are using. It measures 5.8 × 2.8 × 0.9 inches and weighs only 12 ounces, making it close to the size of 3 Galaxy S5s stacked on top of each other-not bad!
