Product Review - BeoPlay H2 #Headphones @BangOlufsenSA #BeoPlaySA #TheLifesWay

Hi Guys,

Bang and Olufsen has been in the market since 1925 when the company was founded by Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen. The brand has been the pioneers in various products from time to time. The first headphones Bang and Olufsen introduced in 1978 was called U70 and forty years later they are leaders in the niche segment of headphones. They have collaborations with various computer, telecom and automobile brands to use their technology to enhance the end users audio experience across platforms. I have always been a great fan of earphones and headphones. I have bought so many and my luck is like if I win any twitter or facebook contest, the prize from that will be of headphones. Bang and Olufsen is one brand that is still not in my kitty but I would love to have the Active Noise Cancellation ones if given an opportunity. 
Bang and Olufsen H2 Headphones a #thelifesway #photoyatra
Bang and Olufsen introduced H2 designer headphones in 2014 which are designed by Jakob Wagner. I got the review device to test and write about and as soon as I saw the device, I immediately liked it a lot. From the packaging to the end product, you get what you paid for. This one is priced at around R3500 in South African market. 

Bang and Olufsen H2 Headphones b #thelifesway #photoyatra
BeoPlay H2 headphones are available in 5 colors namely Deep Red, Shaded Rosa, Carbon Blue, Silver Cloud and Feldspar Green. I was reviewing the Deep Red colored headphones and the packaging contains the headsets along with a cable with three-button remote and microphone. The buttons can be used to play and pause the track as well as to receive and reject the phone calls on certain iOS devices. The button can increase and decrease the volume also of the music being played. 
Bang and Olufsen H2 Headphones c #thelifesway #photoyatra
Bang and Olufsen H2 weights only 155 grams and sits tight on your ears. They feel comfortable due to its design of the earcups made of genuine lambskin. The left and right is marked on the mesh design of the earcups.The length of the headphones can be adjusted using the push in and out design to sit on your ears. As H2 are On-ear headphones so it becomes a necessity to adjust them properly so as to get a nice noise isolation experience.  The headphones can be rotated to sit around your neck while not in use giving a necklace kind of style with earcups resting on your chest. 
Bang and Olufsen H2 Headphones d #thelifesway #photoyatra
The other side of earcups is made of rugged textile which is also used to cover the top portions of headphones. This is the thing that brings color to these headphones. Though the cloth kind covers will be durable but are susceptible to dust, oil and water. They can easily get dirty if not taken  care or are touched while eating etc. It's this design that brings all the pleasure of buying and spending some extra money on H2. I was thinking that the packaging will also contain some kind of cloth bag to carry headphones around but nothing was included in the review unit. 
Bang and Olufsen H2 Headphones e #thelifesway #photoyatra
The sound quality is produced using the 40mm neodymium magnets which give nice output and pleasure to the ears. Even at top of the volume option on my iPod Shuffle, there was no noise on the headphones. It performed nicely even at low volumes and audio was crisp and clear. The bass is not as much as Beats Solo HD produces but sufficient to give a nice surround sound effect. As they sit comfortable and tightly on you head and ears, they give immersive audio experience which takes you places in your music world. 
Bang and Olufsen H2 Headphones f #thelifesway #photoyatra
In the end, I could not find much difference in audio quality from the cheaper Sennheiser headphone which are one fifth of the price and Bang and Olufsen H2. Though there is significant difference in the style and packaging of the product. There is definitely a market for audiophiles who wants to show what they are wearing around their necks and ears. Bang and Olufsen H2 will take you to an amazing new level of respect among your peers for not compromising on money to get great looking niche headphones. I would love to use these H2 as my day to day headphones and only thing I would love to get from Bang and Olufsen is Android cable included in the packaging and a canvas bag to carry these headphones if I am unable to wear them around my neck. 

Cheers!!!

Product Review - Acer C205 LED #Projector @AcerAfrica #TheLifesWay

Hi Guys,

Acer Africa sent me a LED projector and when I received the bag from the courier guy, I thought they forgot to send the same but as I opened the small pack I really felt grateful for what the technology has to offer to the world. Never had I have seen the projector so small other than those which are built in tablets and handy-cams. I immediately fell in love with the brand and started using the projector right away. 

The first thing I loved about is the size and the projected screen quality the device is able to produce. It hardly weights 300 grams and is shipped with a nice soft cloth leather mixed Acer cover to accommodate and protect the LED projector. The same can be carried around easily in your bag pack or even in your tablet bags. This makes it very easy for professionals and other users to showcase their work in front of many people in a single go. 
Product Review - Acer C205 LED #Projector @AcerAfrica #TheLifesWay
The box contains two cables to connect the Acer projector to an Android phone/tablet (MHL Cable - HDMI to micro-USB) and other cable is HDMI to HDMI one. The box also contains the AC to DC power adapter to charge the built-in 3980mAh battery. The great thing about this projector is that you can charge your smartphone too in case required. The battery is enough to stretch through a normal English movie of 95-110 minutes in full charge in ECO mode. 

The MHL cable gives you the possibility to keep it really small as you can just download your presentations in your android or windows mobile and connect your LED projector to showcase your work to your clients anywhere anytime of the day. I loved watching Youtube video's of my favourite TV serials and some of my clicks from the recent holidays on the big wall of my home. I simply attached the Acer projector with the small mobile camera stand and projected on the wall. It was good to setup like that because then the projector is stable and you can simply sit on you bed and watch your content. 
Product Review - Acer C205 LED #Projector @AcerAfrica #TheLifesWay
Specification document says that the Acer LED projector Lamp will last for 20000 hours in Normal mode and increases by 50% to 30000 hours in Economy mode which means you can watch unlimited content for the next 3.4 years nonstop. It is amazing value at the price range of R7000-7500 from various online stores in South Africa. 

The brightness that Acer LED Projector is able to produce is 200 lumens which is enough in a dark room or when viewing in the night but your heart wants more brightness when the room is slightly lit and you are projecting bigger than the resolution capability of 1280X800.
Product Review - Acer C205 LED #Projector @AcerAfrica #TheLifesWay
The audio capability of the Acer LED projector is 2W stereo output which is good if you are watching in a small room. You can increase or decrease the volumes using the touch panel buttons on the top of the projector. The fan noise is 20db which doen't interrupt the fun you are having watching movies at this LED projector.

The Acer LED projector can be directly charged as well as play using the AC to DC power adapter. Once it's fully charged it easily lasts for about 110-120 minutes of video audio output. The USB port  provided in the rear portion of C205 can also charge your smartphone in case of emergency.
Product Review - Acer C205 LED #Projector @AcerAfrica #TheLifesWay
Overall this is awesome buy if you want something handy in the LED projectors and the market has opened up for this kind of small projectors as LG and other companies have also launched the similar kind of products. But I loved Acer Africa's C205 LED Projector and would love to buy it myself. Thanks to Acer for sending the product for review. Looking forward to review some more cool gadgets in the future.

Cheers!!!

Design Premiere 2016 - School of Planning and Architecture #IndiPR

Hi Guys, 

“Design Premiere 2016”, the annual Design Degree exhibition, showcases the creative talent of 21 graduating students from the Department of Industrial Design (DoID), School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi. The exhibition showcases innovative products in domains ranging from Social Innovation, Safety+Mobility, Health+Wellness, Education, Households, Lifestyle, Experience Design among others. 

This five day exhibition will be held from the 27th to 31st of May at the Visual Arts Gallery, India Habitat Centre, New Delhi. 

In these Final Year Degree Projects (Master of Design Course), conducted over a span of 16 weeks, students have undertaken projects (some of which are sponsored by industries) to demonstrate their abilities as Industrial Designers before they step out as professionals in the Design Industry. With study, research, analysis, concept generation and subsequent development of solutions, they have carried the projects into completion as prototypes that can be further developed for production. Retaining the academic perspective and the objectives set by the design brief, they have designed products and systems that are sustainable and an answer to the growing needs of our cultural context. 
Design Premiere 2016 - School of Planning and Architecture
As students venture from academia into the “real” world, these projects stand on the cusp; they intended to push the boundaries of design, often questioning standard practices, rethinking and innovating products and systems that address critical issues we encounter on a day to day basis as well as those that improve quality of life. 

Government of India has declared this decade the ‘Decade of Innovations, Driven by Design’. Thus this public exhibition, held annually in prominent locations, is an attempt for academia to connect with the rest of the city, the general public, businesses, industry to spread design awareness and create design related dialogue and discourse.

Designed for India, these product celebrate the diversity of cultures, habits, lifestyles that give India its vibrancy. Through design thinking, innovation and a human-centeric approach, these projects demonstrate how good design can be the key differentiator for a business while being culturally, socially and environmentally appropriate. 

This exhibition is a set of 21 design stories, tales of how these products evolved. Check out more at - https://www.facebook.com/Department-of-Industrial-Design-School-of-Planning-and-Architecture-Delhi-491841810887981/?fref=ts

@ZoFindIndia Brings Apna Dil, Apni #Delhi Website To Find #Local #Travel Experience #IndiPR

Hi Guys, 

Everyone has that one technophobe friend – the one who knows the city through their own eyes, and goes places asking directions – but when the time comes for you to figure out a new place to hang out in, has a perfect option for you just around the corner. You didn’t know about this coffee shop, or restaurant, or theater, because Google Maps or Apple maps did not have it in their database. What if we told you that there is now a way you can stay ahead of your rustic friend?

Introducing ZoFind
An website developed by an Indian startup Venture, Zofind isn’t exactly a novel ground-breaking technology or a billion-dollar idea. Rather, it is a venture that takes an already existing idea and projects it toward an audience that said idea had hitherto overlooked. While PVR Saket or Regal would be mentioned in Google Maps, would every local theater hall be also there? We imagine not! With Zofind, you’ll find not only the big guns, but also the small businesses that are in Delhi. 
ZO dil kare , wo FIND karo - ZOFIND #thelifesway #photoyatra
Covering the Capital
So far, being a recent Start-up venture, ZoFind has only covered the capital of India, Delhi. Delhi is one of the largest cities in the world and has no end to attractions in it. With all the recent hype about Make in India, it is kind of sad that when it comes to entertainment, we inevitably turn to large corporations with tremendous western influence while neglecting the small businesses that serve the country from a very grass-root level. Our hope is that with a small but effective website such as ZoFind, you’ll be able to get into your attention span numerous small businesses that’ll change the way you look at the city and give the rustic life a chance. 

The Developers
website developer Mohit Bardia aided by his team have come up with an extensive and elaborate framework of hotels, parks, restaurants, coffee shops, movie theatres and what not around the city of Delhi. You can access them from their website which will soon be available in and around the android marketplace. The website will be targeted, as stated earlier, solely at one city for now, but the developers hope that following their success, they’ll increase the outreach of the website to span other cities as well. 

Naturally, since they’re competing with giants such as Google and Apple, it’s obvious that the developers of the website need support from the common Delhi man in the street if they are to be successful. It’s up to the massive android customer base to ensure if India’s battle for net-neutrality will remain put, and a sure fire way of making sure that giant corporations do not get control over the internet is so support small applications such as these which not only have the plus side of being completely Indian, but also have benefits that famous apps do not provide. Quite naturally, ZoFind has already developed a reasonable customer base and is looking to increase in demand as time goes by. Check it out - http://www.zofind.com/

World Can Be Saved With Collaborative Efforts @TsogoSun @MonteCasinoZA #BirdGardens

Hi Guys,

Sometimes something happens around your world which makes you believe in humanity that it can really bring about the necessary change in saving the true human nature and the world we live in. Community member Flora Ndadza and her family, of Cambell just outside of Musina, were instrumental in saving the life of a female ground-hornbill caught in a snare. They managed to free her and knowing she was an important bird they kept her in a cage and tried to feed her mice and grasshoppers they had caught. 
The ground hornbill if free to fly #thelifesway #photoyatra
She was however too stressed and badly wounded to eat but was spotted by a local farmer who had come to buy pigs. He got in touch with the Mabula Ground Hornbill Project who have been working to protect the species in the Limpopo River Valley since 2000. They, together with Leon de Jager, head of the Limpopo provincial conservation agency, were able to rush her through to Montecasino Bird Gardens where Dr Katja Koeppel was able to successfully operate. 
Dr Katja Koeppel operates on the ground hornbill #thelifesway
Two weeks later, thanks to the care from the team at Montecasino Bird Gardens she had healed well enough to be returned to the wild. Both Gauteng and Limpopo conservation officials were also able to expedite the permits required to move her back before the stress of captivity became an issue. This was a massive collaborative effort to keep a female ground-hornbill safe so that she can return to the wild to do what is so desperately needed by this Endangered species – to be able to rear another generation.

@HoldingWilley Launched HW Cricket App #NothingButScores #Android #IndiPR

Hi Guys, 

On 12th of May 2016, Aditya Phatak, Strategy lead of HoldingWilley launched a cricket app which will, in course of time change the way people surf scores in their mobile phones. ‘HW Cricket’ as they call it, is defined on four pillars namely – Fast, Lite, Innovative and Shareable. With so many cricket apps already in the play store, what and how will this app make a difference?
The creators have stated a particular reason to come out with this cricket scores app. Here is a brief from their about us – 

Everything we do, we believe in challenging the conventional, we believe in thinking differently. The way we challenge the conventional is by making something which is original, innovative and precisely what a user needs. We just happened to make a great cricket app. Wanna try it? For cricket fans, we believe live scores matter way more than anything else while s/he surfs a cricket app. They are ecstatic even more if scores reach them easy and as fast as possible. At the same time, we believe a user is quite perceptive to data usage at all times while surfing apps. We tried to solve this.

HW Cricket is an ‘only scores cricket app’. We believe in being clean, easy to access, innovative and simple. Therefore no ­- so many sections, so many buttons, so many links, mindless commentary and a distasteful design. Fast, Lite, Simple, Innovative and easily Shareable.

Hi Guys, 

Ever seen something you liked and had a ton of questions about it, like, “What is this?”, “How much does it cost?”, “Where can I buy it?”, with Pixarium System’s new mobile app, Scan It, all your questions will be answered, all you need to do is take a picture to get the answers to all your questions and the best online deals in under 30 seconds. 

Scan It is India’s first full stack image recognition mobile app, that is capable of recognising anything from Electronics, Clothes, Accessories, Shoes all the way to Plants, Animals and Food up to a 98.5% accuracy rate. All a user needs to do is take a picture of anything they like to get the following information - 

1. Product Description
2. Where it’s available in physical retail (based on current location) - Store Locator
3. Option to order it online from your preferred online retailer

The app also allows a user Google search anything they take a picture of hence making it a full stack informational app and not just a facilitator of online shopping, allowing a user to be completely independent when it comes to acquiring information about anything in the world! 


Check out the app on Android and iOS - 


Scan It also serves as a great marketing solution for retailers looking to maximise their marketing efficiency. Retailers can list themselves as sellers for particular products, and Scan It will display them as Scan It Suggested retailers under the store locator section along with their contact details and directions to their store and website. This means that retailers can reap the benefits of advertising at the right place and at the right time, exactly when a customer is most interested in their product, thus generating great brand recall! 

If you want to be a part of the revolution that is Image Recognition, download the app and give it a try, you will not be disappointed!

@HuaweiZA Debunks #Battery Charging Myths by Peter Hu #HuaweiSouthAfrica

Hi Guys, 

Peter Hu, Managing Director of East and Southern Africa, Huawei Consumer Business Group continues to break some myths related to battery charging and taking care of the same. 

The verdict is in. Everyone has one big ask for their phone and that’s better battery life. In 2015 visitors to the Consumer Electronics Show voted improved battery life as the most critical feature in a smartphone. It is 2016 and only now are phone manufacturers starting to get the message. Many brands are clamoring trying to provide devices that meet their customers basic need. 

We are Huawei are proud to say that not only did we understand our users’ for a long lasting battery, we have also addressed another users pain point, which is the time it takes to charge a battery. Already in 2015 we unveiled a super battery prototype, demonstrating its tech advancements on two prototype removable lithium-ion batteries that can be fully recharged in only a few minutes. Now this battery expertise is filtering down to our everyday handsets. 

Our new premium entry level phone Huawei Y6Pro boasts the most powerful battery in its category. It clocks in at 4000mAh and utilizes Power Saving technology 3.0 to stay strong through an impressive two days’ heavy usage with an extremely quick charge time; just 10 minutes of charging delivers three hours of call time. Adding to that, the phone can also double up as a portable charger for other devices.

Despite a clear understanding of the value of powerful battery, many consumers are still unclear on issues such as when to charge it, how long to charge it for and how to get the best from your battery. To help users get the utmost of their battery, we have compiled a selection of the most common mobile charging myths and debunked them. 
Huawei Logo #thelifesway #photoyatra
MYTH #1: ONLY CHARGE A BATTERY ON 50% POWER OR LESS
This is the most common charging myth; however, it’s no longer true anymore. Today’s batteries are lithium-ion, which means they don’t have memories, they can’t be trained to take more charge and there’s no reason not to top up your battery whenever you feel like it. 

MYTH #2: AN OFF-BRAND CHARGER WILL KILL YOUR PHONE
An off-brand charger won’t affect your battery, but cheap, knock-off chargers are a different story as they have been proven to be a safety hazard. Branded chargers are the best if you have a special model like the Huawei Y6Pro’s super-fast two-amp (5V2A) charger that powers three hours of talk time in just 10 minutes because of its Smart Power Saving technology using eight separate power-optimisation approaches.

MYTH #3: YOU SHOULDN’T CHARGE YOUR BATTERY OVERNIGHT
Today’s mobile batteries don’t have memories (see Myth #1) but they are smart. Your battery will stop charging when it’s full and leaving it plugged in overnight does no real harm. Saying that, if your phone runs hot, remove its case before an overnight charge session to ensure excess heat can escape.

MYTH #4: IF YOUR PHONE GETS HOT WHILE CHARGING, PUT IT IN THE FRIDGE
Smartphone batteries have been designed to function at normal room temperature. Is your refrigerator normal room temperature? No? Then definitely don’t put your phone inside it. The freezer and the oven are also off limits, and sunny car dashboards should be avoided too.

MYTH #5: IT’S BEST TO POWER DOWN WHILE CHARGING
While phones can benefit from an occasional break, there’s no reason to power off while charging. Smartphone designers know they’re building phones, so batteries are designed to work well under full-time use. Power down if your phone is running particularly slowly or you need to install an update, but otherwise, don’t bother.

Follow these tips and tricks to get the best life out of your smartphone batteries or rather buy a Huawei Smartphone.

@SonyXperiaZA Launched Xperia XA Ultra #Selfie Smartphone #XperiaXLegend #eXperience

Hi Guys, 

Sony Mobile Communications announced a new addition to the revamped Xperia X series with the stylish selfie-cam masterpiece, Xperia XA Ultra. Its large 6” screen, 16MP front camera, low-light sensor, up to two days battery life and stylish thin design with a borderless screen makes it a fantastic mid-range smartphone for every need. 
Sony Xperia XA Smartphone #thelifesway #photoyatra
Boasting an advanced selfie cam, it captures the perfect pose day or night. This is made possible by its 16MP front camera and Sony’s renowned low-light sensors. The Sony camera technology used in the Xperia XA Ultra helps achieve sharp, bright, blur-free shots every time and features a smart selfie flash to naturally illuminate a face for night scene selfies. It benefits additionally from the Optical Image Stabilisation system to counter hand shake for both photos and videos. Taking a selfie is made even easier with the Hand Shutter feature. All it takes is raising a hand and the shutter timer will start to count down, leaving enough time to make the perfect pout and strike a pose. Capturing the perfect spontaneous shot is also possible with the super-fast main camera, featuring 21.5 megapixels, Sony's exceptional Hybrid Autofocus and quick launch and capture so one can go from standby to capture in a fraction of a second.
Sony Xperia XA Smartphone #thelifesway #photoyatra Camera
Fitting beautifully in the hand, the infinity-feel borderless 6-inch Full HD display with curved glass is encased by a metal surround that creates a seamless feel. Despite the large screen, the Xperia XA Ultra's razor thin design and One-handed Operation Mode means it sits comfortably in one hand.

The Xperia XA Ultra might have a big, bright display, but that doesn’t compromise the Sony battery standard. It still gets up to 2-days of battery life from a single charge, leaving more time to chat, snap and watch. When the need comes for a quick battery top-up, the Xperia XA Ultra coupled to the Quick Charger UCH12 will get 5.5 hours of battery life in just 10 minutes. Additionally, with integrated Qnovo adaptive charging technology the lifetime of the battery is extended so over time one gets much more use out of the device. 
Sony Xperia XA Smartphone #thelifesway #photoyatra Colors
This breakthrough model comes on the heels of Sony Mobile Communications' announcement of the appointment of Mr. Jason Smith as its new Vice-President for the Middle East and Africa, effective 1st of April 2016.

Product Review - LG G5 @LGMobileSA #LGG5PlayMore #Smartphone

Hi Guys, 

It's been a while that I fell in love with the camera on a smartphone device, last time I remember I really liked HTC One M9, Samsung S6 and LG G4 cameras but with the launch of latest LG G5 the capabilities of smartphones have increase multifold. The best part of LG G5 is it's amazing modular body which gives you power to create your phone as you like. You can have multiple batteries available, can listen to high fidelity Bang and Olufsen amplified music and have a full fledged point and shoot camera accessory. All these things are called the LG G5 Friends as they enhance and support the phone through thick and thin.

“I began to realize that the camera sees the world differently than the human eye and that sometimes those differences can make a photograph more powerful than what you actually observed", As rightly pointed out by the Galen Rowell, LG G5 dual rear cameras really takes your photographs to a new level. I had the opportunity to click several amazing pictures throughout my two three weeks of review device. Check out some of the photographs I took using the camera on instagram with #LGG5PlayMore.

LG’s new flagship, the G5, is equipped with two rear-facing cameras, one with a traditional lens (16MP, f1.8) and another with a wide-angle (8MP), 135-degree version. The latter is approximately 1.7 times wider than those of existing smartphone cameras lens, allowing users to capture more subject matter in a single photo. This is why the G5's second lens' near-fisheye field of view has proven so essential, given how carefully it has been integrated with the main camera. Now your landscapes photographs will be awesome. I am really going to miss the LG G5 when I will go to Drakensberg and other parts of very soon. The LG G5 features a collection of powerful photo effects including Pop-out Picture, Film Effect and Auto Shot.

The software to control the dual camera is upgraded version from LG G4 and one can easily switch between the two in the camera app. I really loved that without moving your feet, you can take photographs of the whole large group as well as portraits of small number of people. The phone also allows to take RAW images and gives you total control of the camera in manual mode. Also the SD card can take 2TB of card so as you carry on clicking your photographs. I checked the file size in JPEG format is nearly 6MB per photograph and reaches 10MB per snap while shooting in RAW format.

I really loved the display of LG G5 and games like MMX Racing looked wonderful on the phone as well as text documents. The phone is fast to process different games and apps and never got warm when I played the games or took a lot of photographs. The only time it got warm was during the fast charging and that too only little warm. I have always used the top of the end smartphone for my personal use and HTC One phones I use have the best of displays. G5 has 5.3in Quad HD IPS display producing 554ppi giving superb visual quality.

The removable battery on G5 is 2800mAh which comes with fast charger unit and can be fully charged in around 80-90 minutes when plugged in electrical power source. It easily gave me more than a full day usage when I played MMX Racing (10 tickets) multiple times each day. LG G5 comes with marshmallow Android Operating System enabling you to stay on the top of the latest technology. The processing speed is awesome with it's Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM.

The build quality of G5 is really great and comes with the latest USB Type C charging port where the cable can be used both ways just like lightening cable used in Apple devices. Though it's a new addition but I really felt helpless as I could not attach my old OTG Android drive to post photographs on Instagram. The only solution was then to use the built in memory of the device or the external Micro-SD card that can be inserted along with the nano-SIM slot on the right hand side of the phone.

The other side of the phone has a small button to use the modularity of the phone. The battery can then be taken out revealing a seamless body with which anyone will fall in love. The only problem I faced was the resetting of setting like time/location etc when taking the battery out of the smartphone without any active nano-SIM. I also felt that the body doesn't attach as seamless as we want it to be once you have taken the battery out. Maybe I was using a demo unit which must have been used several times on display so that mismatch has developed but as this feature is still new, it will take time to be precised.

The back volume buttons as you must have seen in LG G4 has been moved to the sides and now sits on the left hand side in LG G5. The speaker slots are on the bottom of the phone along with the new Type-C charger. The headphone jack is on the top side along with infrared sensor. I felt speaker slots gets covered by my hands while playing the games in a certain fashion and you had to revolve the smartphone by 180 degrees.

Going with the punchline of the product - "Life's Good When You Play More" the LG G5 allows you to definitely do more at the same time. The package contains the fast charger and Type-C USB cable in the demo unit. I really want the phone back as the same felt the right size in my hands and is lightweight with metal alloy body which is non-slippery. There is so much to talk about this phone about which I have already posted on my blog. This is one phone which you can use daily without any problems faced and TheLife'sWay would definitely want to use it as day-to-day usage smartphone if sponsored by LG South Africa
