Feb-24-2018 By Maniha

As Android 8.0 came, Google introduced new Ar stickers in Pixel 2 XL. Augmented reality is a camera mode in which you can drop augmented reality objects into your photos. They aren’t a separate app, you’ll find them inside your camera mode.

Below is a video I made with the AR mode. ūüôā

Apple airpods

Dec-2-2017 By Maniha







Hi everyone, I am back! I hope you all are doing great today. I made a review on the apple AirPods so I am going to be telling you about them. AirPods are driven by the custom designed apple chip Apple W1 chip. they are wireless headphones and easy to use. It has a great battery life and you can use them for 5 hours on a single charge. There is a voice accelerator which recognizes your voice when you are speaking and works with a beam-forming microphones which filter out all the external noises. It also knows when you are talking because the optical sensors and the accelerometers work with the w1 chip to control the audio and engage the microphone which gives¬† the ability to use both AirPods.¬† You don’t have to connect it, it connects automatically for you to any apple device you are using. So apple fans, go ahead and buy them. ūüėÄ

Google home

May-30-2017 By Maniha










Hello everyone, after a long long time. How are ya’ll doing today? I hope you doing good. Ramadan is here so yeah Ramadan Mubarak. I have been busy in exams so I haven’t got much time to blog about stuff, but yeah today I finally came out to vlog about this gadget I have and it’s called “Google home.” Yes it’s the new Google assistant, similar to Cortana and Siri. My assistant has a beautiful voice. So yeah. My father got it from Uk for me. Gotta admit, at first it won’t work properly, ¬†as in it won’t respond to me when I say ‘Ok Google’, but somehow when I was making a video for vlogging, I saw that it started responding to me. Maybe I should have made a video with it earlier, maybe it just wanted to be famous and video. Haha. Jk.¬†

How to set up the “Google home?”

1 Plug the power adapter card into the base of your Google home.

2. Plug the power adopter into an outlet. The unit will automatically boot up, introducing itself and directing you to the Google Home app to finish setup. Google home app can be downloading from the playstore or the appstore. 

3. Then open the Google Home app. 

4. Tap devices, the TV and the speakers in the top right corner of the screen.

5. Tap setup in the card for your new Google Home. 

6. Once the app has found your Google Home, click set up. 

7. Once connected, Play test sound to ensure it’s connected and connected to the right unit. If you hear the tone by Google, tap “I heard it.” Connect Wifi to your google home and have fun using it.¬†


So these are the steps you need to follow. Once everything is done, Say “ok Google” ¬†or “hey Google and ask questions or anything. You can ask google things like:

  1. Weather
  2. News
  3. Play music
  4. Talk to it like you talk to friends, it also tells jokes and a small story.
  5. It can help you set an alarm and wake you up and answers study related or any questions for you and so on.

Note: If it doesn’t respond to “Ok Google” there is also a button on top of it just press it and speak manually. The speaker button also lies up there. You can mute the microphone or not. Make sure there isn’t much background music when you talk to it.

I am quite enjoying this device, the voice is great. ūüėÄ

Also I made a vlog on this.



LG G4 Releasing Soon

Dec-30-2014 By Maniha


Hi, guys. I am back and yeah I know am blogging after a long time. I am kinda addictive to anime, so yea deal with it. Soon new the LG G4 will be released around 2015. We can still get excited about it. The G4 is supposed to come with a 5.3-inch 2560 x 1440QHD display rather than  the previous one which was 3840 x 2160UHD screen.

It is also said that LG has launched a trademark filling for a new stylus known as the G Pen. LG could be making a G Pen stylus accessory for its existing or future handsets. If it is reducing the number of handsets it produces, it might focus on this as an alternative revenue stream. It could signal a re-brand of the LG series, with the LG G4 which is a serious competitor of the Galaxy Note 5. The LG G4 may have the aluminium body like the Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Alpha. The LG G4 is currently available at Amazon for $599.99 . Well, get ready Android lovers for a new phone like this.

Hey everyone, it’s been a long time since I blogged about something. Been busy, currently applying to universities. So anyways, my daddy got me LG G3, just a few days back. It’s one awesome phone and I love it.¬†There are a number of key features that LG is touting as new and improved this year with the G3, but none sticks out as prominently as the QHD screen. Some might think that this is four times the pixel count of an HD screen, and you’d be right to a degree.

The screen is brilliant.¬†Internet browsing, looking at pictures, watching high-end video, all is awesome.¬†Internet browsing, looking at pictures, watching high-end video. The icons are redesigned. Different applications have their own color scheme. It has a¬†metallic¬†skin. It has 5.5 inch screen and has ¬†laser focusing camera. Its wait is just 149g. Its volume button and the power button is at the back of it and they are much better. The controls are also very easy to reach with. It has 3.5 mm headphone jack and microUSB port at the bottom. It has a 13 megapixel camera. You can take a picture by waving your hand. Also there is an awesome picture taking method. You can say the words kimchi, cheese, LG, whisky or smile and it will automatically take your photo. Pretty interesting, isn’t it? The phone is good for taking selfies too and to make videos. It runs the Android 4.4.2 Kitkat version which is pretty fast. One must¬†definitely¬†try out this phone. Android lovers would love it. That’s all folks, until then see ¬†ya.¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†

Android KitKat 4.4

Jan-31-2014 By Maniha

android kitkatAnother awesome software came in Android a while ago with a really yummy name that is called “Android Kitkat”. Haha it’s funny how Android software names are so yummy, looks more like a candy factory. Anyways, I am going to tell you about it. One thing is that, you don’t need to touch the screen to launch google now, just saw “OK GOOGLE” and there you go, you’ll get your voice search, send text, get directions and etc. When listening to music, or seeing movies on CHROMECAST, you’ll see a full screen album and movie when your device is locked. There is an immersive mode which hides everything except what you want to see. Just swipe the edge of the screen to bring back your status bar and navigation buttons.¬†

Android 4.4 optimizes your memory. It improves your touch and your phone becomes much faster. The new app automatically¬†prioritizes¬†your contacts based on the people you talk to the most. You can search for nearby places, businesses, your contacts or the people in the Google apps domain. If you get a call from a person you don’t know, your phone will look for matches from businesses with a local listing on Google maps. With the hangout app, you will never miss a message. All your old conversations and video calls will be stored. You can even share your location and send animated gifts. Emojis (colorful Japanese¬†emoticons) are now available in the Android¬†keyboard so texting would be more fun. You can also print documents , webpages, photos or anything now from your phone. You can print to any printer connected to Google Cloud Print, HP ePrint ¬†Printers and to other printers that have apps in the Google Play Store.¬†With quickoffice, you can open or save files on Google Drive or your device. With quick access to recently used files, it’s easier than ever to send the file you were just working on. I can’t wait to get the Android Kitkat on my HTC One.

Xbox 1

Jan-31-2014 By Maniha


  • Microsoft Xbox is an amazing game set for everyone.I love to do gaming. It integrates live TV in an innovative fashion and control your cable or satellite cable box, TV and receiver.¬†The One has a slightly better roster of exclusive launch games compared with the PS4’s.¬†¬†The Xbox One goes beyond gaming with its ambitious live TV integration, but at launch it can’t deliver a knockout blow to the PS4 due to a higher price and uneven voice control. We suggest you wait for improvements, but for now, the Xbox One is better suited to forgiving early adopters.


Under the xbox one’s hood is an eight-core AMD CPU, 8GB of DDR3 RAM and a GPU clocked at 853 MHz. It is bulkier andess sleek than PS4. It weighs around 8 pounds and measures in at 13.4 inches wide by 10.4 inches deep by 3.2 inches tall. It is designed to be on nearly 24-7, if only because it sits in line between your cable box and TV.¬†Microsoft is emphasizing the Kinect’s integration with Xbox One through features such as a built-in Skype¬†client for¬†videoconferencing, user recognition and tracking, and the ability to use voice commands¬†and gestures to navigate the console’s¬†user interface. New gaming functionality includes an expanded Xbox Live¬†service, improved Kinect functionality,¬† cloud computing, the ability to automatically record and share video highlights from gameplay, and support for¬†live streaminggameplay online. I would love to do gaming in it. It is just so awesome.¬†

Note3Concept-400x231The Note 3 has a 5.7 inch full high -definition¬†screen and a slight boost from the 5.5 inch display. The Note 3 is thinner and lighter measuring 8.3 mm and weighing 168 g. It’s really easy to hold in one hand unless you have smaller hands like me. The screen is bright, colorful and responsive. Under the slablike screen there is a 2.3GHz processor with a 3GB RAM. There is a 3200mAh battery. It is really speedy too.¬†It has 4G LTE for connecting to the Internet at high speeds, with support for the fastest category 4 4G. It has a 13 mega-pixel camera with LED flash. It also has a S Pen which is its stylus stowed away in the bottom of the phablet. The basic use of the S Pen is to scrawl a note or a memo. ¬†Multitasking is much easier as it has a bigger screen. With Multi Window you can divide the screens in half between the two apps.¬†You can drag and drop stuff between two apps: no more cumbersome copying text, switching apps, pasting it, switching back, copying the next bit, and so on and so on. It’s one amazing phone, I cant wait to get it. ūüėÄ

It has a stunning design , a supreme screen and a explosive power. It has a 4.7 inches Full HD screen. The phone ia much bigger than my tiny hand. It has 32 GB of storage, top-end bluetooth ,wifi and a 3G/4G connections. It is so thin and can easily slide in your pockets. It is not light weight either.¬† The machined holes that allow sound to come from the dual front-facing speakers looks amazing and sounds great. You wont find anyspaces, holds or light leakages. The volume control button is the same as the other Android phones. The power button resides on the top and doubles as the infrared blaster. The phone is slippery due to the metallic chassis. It gets hot really quickly.¬†It runs the Android version 4.2.2. It is awesome to use. ūüėÄ
