Portrait Mode on all Smartphones | Tech Tips
Ever since Apple introduced Dual Camera portrait mode on its iPhone 7 plus smartphone, the trend of portrait photo has become a rage amongst the consumers.

And smartphone manufacturers are more than happy to provide the consumers with dual cameras and portrait photo mode.

This feature is not just reserved for expensive smartphones but have also made its way to almost all budget smartphones.
But if you own the latest budget smartphone or a mid-range smartphone, you may have noticed that this mode doesn't really work that well.

Majority of the time, the edge detection is not great and some manufacturers apply a blurring algorithm that looks outright fake.

Now You don't need to worry! 
If the Portrait mode on your smartphone does not work well then you can just capture a regular image and use an app to convert it to portrait photo.

This app works really well and is very good at detecting edges and blurring the background beautifully.

Why Face Id makes more sense than Touch Id! | Tech Talks

Face Id makes more sense the Touch Id

I recently came across an article which shared a new rumour about the Galaxy S10 which Samsung may launch next year.
It's funny to see that despite the imminent launch of galaxy note 9, we are getting leaks about galaxy s10 and not the note 9.
Anyways, according to this new rumour, Samsung may ditch its iris scanner in next year's galaxy s10. 

What would come, in its place, is a 3d face scanner like Apple iPhone X for secure face unlock. Samsung, like Apple, would then be able to utilise it for its payment service, Samsung pay, as well.
Even the recently launched Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer edition has 3d face-scanning tech for secure face unlock.
This shows the growing popularity of face Id.  In this article, I will tell you why it actually makes more sense than not just iris scanner but also fingerprint sensor.

Face Id-advantagesFace unlock isn't new to the smartphone market. 
Android was actually the first to incorporate it in its version - ICE CRE…

Best app to add text to photos
Smartphones have been a great invention. They have allowed people to easily do tasks that previously required a desktop computer, an expensive software and technical skills.

One such functionality is writing text on photos.
Previously, this task used to require a software like Photoshop which people used to achieve this functionality.

But now there are plenty of apps to do this very easily.

One of the easiest to use and my personal favorite is PHONTO.




PHONTO - Add Text to Photos The best part of this app is that it is very simple to use and also is cross-platform. What that means is that it is available both on Android and iOS platforms.

After installation, when you open the app, you are greeted with this screen on Android. The iOS screen layout may be slightly different.

iPhone SE | Best Phones under ₹20,000

Apple iPhone's have long been the dream smartphones for many people. Especially in India where the price and availability hampered iPhones growth severely.

However, over the last few years, this situation has changed drastically.

Not only is Apple taking the Indian market seriously and launching their smartphones early, prices of a year or 2 old devices have also reduced so as to make them affordable.

The best aspect of an iPhone is that even a year old iPhone is as good as any latest android flagship device. Currently, one of the cheapest iPhones you can buy is the iPhone SE.

In this article, we find out if it is worth buying!




Phones under ₹ 20,000 The Sub ₹ 20,000 price range in the Indian smartphone market is one of the most competitive smartphone markets in the world.
With so many companies launching multiple products, it's always a task to find the best from the rest. We have some great looking smartphones such as the Huawei P20 lite…

iOS 12 Best Features

If you are an Apple fanboy or you own and love your Apple devices, WWDC is always the time to be super excited. Apple announces its new set of software updates that arrive with new and improved features.
And WWDC 2018 this year has been no different. Apple announced iOS 12, macOS Mojave, WatchOS 5 and a new version of tvOS.
Of course, like all of us, you all must be excited about whats new in iOS 12. So if you missed the keynote or even if you didn't, just sit back and read out all the fun new features coming to iOS. we bet you didn't know about many of these.


WIDE SUPPORT
In my opinion, this is the biggest feature any company can provide. An update to such a vast range of devices is unheard of. iPhone 5s is more than 5-6 years old now. And Apple is still supporting it.
And not just supporting it for the sake of it. iOS 12 promises performance and speed improvements to iPhone 5s making it even faster than it currently is.
One can get an iPhone 5s in India…
