    One of the Chinese largest mobile phone OEM manufacturer entered Indian market with the launch of Xiaomi mi 3 with the state of the art Qualcomm's Snapdragon series 800 SOC and adreno 330 Gpu , which costs fraction of the price of Samsung s4/s5 and SONY xperia z1/z2 Which do comes with exactly same set of specification

    It comes equipped with 5 inch 1080P IPS panel with stunning 441 pixels per inch at par with Xperia Z1 bravia 2 engine panel
    MSM8274AB SERIES 800 SOC Quad core with each core clocked at 2.3 ghz which is a major frequency bump compared to its predecessor Series 600
    ANDRENO 330 GPU
    2GB RAM
    GLONASS support
    13MP and 2mp front and rear HD camera's capable of full HDR
    Comes in a magnesium frame outerbody and rigid construction just 0.1 mm thicker than the xperia z2( 7.9mm thick)

    A major thing here is that we must appreciate Xiaomi's commitment in delivering low cost mobiles to Indian market with flagship features and migrating from the traditional MEDIATEK SOC's

    Will be available with flipkart for pre booking , flipkart partnered with xiaomi to sell these mobiles

    Most of us wanted to run the latest android firmware on our mobile, but in reality without the specified hardware restrictions set by manufacturer one cant get the update,
    Wait but there is an easy way to install the latest Android 4.4.x kitkat os version on your mobile by simply unlocking the admin grant access to your mobile

    Please do this, if your mobile is already out of warranty else your warranty gets void

    first I would like to go with my favourite devices Xperia, will publish later on for other manufacturer's devices
    I tried this thing on my old Xperia arc (Runs on 1ghz MSM8255 single core QUALCOMM snapdragon chipset with 512mb ram, its a 2011 xperia range)
    I am successfully able to overclock the base frequency of 1000mhz to 1700 MHz there by improving the performance boost

    Yet to try it on my Z1 will do once iam done with my warranty :)

    Pre-requisites:





    1. Before rooting your device, make sure to create a backup of
    all personal information, settings and data files using the Sony PC
    Companion or manually copying them to your computer.


    2. Enable USB debugging mode on your device. Go to "Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging."

    3. Battery level must be at least 50 per cent to avoid power interruption.

    4. Download the DooMLoRD Easy Rooting Toolkit to your computer.

    Rooting Instructions:

    1. Connect your Xperia device to the computer using a USB cable.

    2. Extract the downloaded zip file to a new folder.

    3. From the new folder where the extracted files are, open the
    "root.bat" file and follow the instructions displayed on the screen.


    4. Once the rooting process is completed, check if your Xperia
    phone or tablet gained root access by download the Root Checked app from
    the Play Store.


    5. In case the device failed to get rooted, redo the rooting process once more.

    Once done with this, You can now flash with the custom rom of your choice

    you can get custom rom's for xperia devices at www.xda-developers.com

    Anyone Experienced 3D sound apart from regular 2D home theatre systems

    Here comes a new product for Auro-3D , they created a third axis for swinging music along that plane ,there by providing a realistic virtual surround with great quality without missing anything whether it may be at low mid or high frequencies..

    Here apart from the regular two dimensional travelling of the music along length and breadth of the room,they included ceiling speakers which reflects its output towards the ground there by providing a virtual third axis ...

    Here im posting the self drawn pic for a better understanding
    but couldn't able to show the three dimensional

    Actually sound travles along length,breadth and the roof to the bottom in 3 directions..

    Is your Led/Lcd Color Blind??

    Most of the manufacturers over saturate and enhance the colors there by giving a vivid and bright displays so as to woo the customers,

    but in reality they cant differentiate shades of the same color

    To findout whether your LED/LCD is color blind or not

    just download this video/picture from the following Sony website

    in that a video will be played under a transparent blue shaded background if your LED/LCD is color blind it will display only the blue shaded screen without any video playback

    but if your LED is normal one without any over saturation you should be able to watch the video
