  • Smartphones have driven a silent social revolution | The Financial Express
    government s push on Make in India and subsequent decision to increase countervailing duty for mobile phones early last year roughly 40 of smartphones sold in India were manufactured or assembled locally by the first half of 2015 Most vendors still import semi knocked down SKD kits Government policies and tax structures are expected to change again to encourage local manufacturing and we expect completely knocked down kits CKDs to become more prevalent thereby taking manufacturing to the next stage of sophistication Security will be a key hygiene factor for enterprise class phones Massive security breaches of companies are becoming all too common IDC believes that more companies will begin utilising the biometric security built into both company and employee owned smartphones to help secure everything from PCs and networks to physical access to buildings All current generation Apple iPhones now have fingerprint scanners and the technology will trickle down to many flagship premium Android phones and gradually to mid tier phones over time We anticipate smartphones pre installed with biometric features to be seen on a rise in 2016 Mobile apps hyperlocal and vernacular usage will be key India has one of the largest internet user bases where more than 50 are mobile only internet users and the mobile is the primary screen for internet access for more than 80 of internet users With smartphone penetration of around 20 IDC anticipates Tier 2 cities and beyond to drive the next wave of growth It is evident that a majority of users in smaller cities and towns use the Internet in their local languages And hence it is imperative for vendors to target these first time users with an increased focus on localised content Similarly hyperlocal apps connects apps users in target markets with vendors in a mutually beneficial way And hence they are increasingly looked upon by businesses in creating a personal equation with the targeted audience Online share is likely to plateau by 2016 end The growth spurt driven by the online marketplace model is quite remarkable in India primarily led by Flipkart Amazon and Snapdeal However online platforms see a majority of their device sales during festive periods at other times roughly 67 75 of devices are bought through traditional retail outlets Certain vendors have successfully experimented with online only distribution models as a launch pad into India With more price discipline looming vendors going into traditional distribution to drive volumes we expect this advantage to diminish and the online platforms to settle at a 40 45 market share by the end of 2016 and stay there through next year Smartphones have driven a silent social revolution in the country For the first time ever they have provided an economical method for hundreds of millions of people to access to the magic of the internet Thereby driving consumption greater efficiencies in government services transformation in the business to business commerce ecosystem and the creation of an entire new industry with world leaders such as Micormax 2016 will

  • Zen Cinemax 2 review: An average phone with an attracting price tag of Rs 4,199 | The Financial Express
    comparison in terms of performance Microsoft s Lumia is way ahead of Zen Cinemax 2 When we started reviewing the Cinemax 2 we were quite taken aback by the unacceptable level of lag stutter and delay even in using the basic features such as Call or Google Play Store The Zen Cinemax 2 has a 5 5 inch screen with 960 x 540 pixels qHD resolution The display quality is fairly satisfactory A 3 5 mm headset jack and USB cord are placed on top edge while three capacitive touch keys are placed on the bottom The power key is on the right edge while left has space for volume rocker keys The detachable rear panel which is made of plastic is home to Zen branding and speaker grille in the bottom and a rear camera at the top With thickness of 9 40 mm and weight of 157g Cinemax 2 is neither too thick nor too heavy The Zen Cinemax 2 runs on Android 5 1 Lollipop operating system and its entrails are powered by a 32 bit 1 3GHz quad core Spreadtrum 7731 processor paired with 1 GB of RAM The phone has 8 GB internal memory for storage that can be expanded up to 32 GB via a microSD card While doing multi tasking between the apps we had some tough time as apps crashed or many a times reported unbearable lag On the camera front Zen Cinemax 2 comes with a 5 megapixels rear camera with an LED flash for low light photography and 2 megapixels front camera for selfies Both the cameras offer decent picture in regular lights However they failed to deliver even an average quality in low light conditions Also when you see pictures with full zoom they turn out to be blurry with lot of visible noise in the images The device is packed with a replaceable 2900mAh battery that offers decent standby time and could last between 5 7 hours with multitasking and regular data usage The device support 2G 3G Wi Fi and Bluetooth but quite strange it does not support 4G especially at a time when people are looking for affordable 4G smartphone Overall the Cinemax 2 is an attempt by Zen Mobile to improve upon its previous offering in Cinemax series However there is nothing substantial for the users except that it has been attractively priced for the budget segment First Published on February 4 2016 12 02 am Please Wait while comments are loading Calculators Tax Calculator House Loan Calculator Financial Planner Inflation Planner Pension Calculator Employee PF Calculator Equity Screener Auto Loan Retirement Plan Savings Investment Guidance Videos BMW 7 series Merc S600 showcased at Auto Expo 2016 Auto Expo 2016 Maruti Suzuki Ignis Baleno RS unveiled Auto Expo 2016 Toyota Innova Crysta MPV makes its India debut Auto Expo 2016 New Hyundai Tucson SUV revealed Galleries IPL 9 auction Market Capitalisation Employment index Vegetable oil import BSE Sensex more PM Narendra Modi inaugurates Paradeep oil
