Motorola is back in the game with its new Moto Z. The new smartphone range was launched on February 17th, 2017 by Lenovo through its subsidiary Motorola Mobility. The most talked-about features of the new phone, besides its thinness, are its Moto Mods. Continue reading
If you ask me, I am one of the most unsatisfied smartphone customers (blame my excess usage of social media apps and online reading habit for it). Anyways, so, ever since I have been deprived of my Samasung Galaxy S3 on gun point, a.k.a mobile snatching, my life has been terribly miserable. I couldn’t find a single smartphone that can work effectively without getting hung or confused at what I am commanding them. LOL.
Jokes apart, one day when my Huawei P8 Lite completely refused to start and did not cooperate, I was forced to search about the best phones I can get in the most reasonable price. Though some of these brands are available locally through black market, I usually prefer going for brands that are officially available in Pakistan.
Cutting the long story short, out of four best phones that I came across, two of them aren’t available in Pakistan yet. Sigh and sobs!
How I wish these brands were available in this part of the world as well (I hope so they will think about it soon)
It was the first brand that popped up in my search bar, so I will definitely start with it. Headquartered in China, Xiaomi is determined to introduce the high quality latest technology in an affordable rate. They are already present in Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia, India, Brazil and Indonesia. I hope they further expand their market to Pakistan. So far, their most loved brands by consumers are
Xiaomi Mi Mix
It is the latest addition in Xiaomi’s family. The most futuristic phone with 91.3% screen to body ratio. The almost no-edges design wasn’t easy to develop and required a lot of work in other areas too. Apart from great design, Xiaomi Mi Mix offers 6 GB RAM, 16 MP rear camera, 256 GB storage and a battery of 4400 mAh.
Other notable devices by Xiaomi are:
· Xiami Mi 5
· Xiaomi Mi 4i
· Xiaomi Redmi Note
· Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G
· Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime.
In 2012, five entrepreneurs decided to open up a small startup that has now grown up to become a full-fledged organization. iDroid USA aims to become the market leader with its cutting edge technology and this mission is the reason they are relying on extremely sophisticated and advanced research methodologies.
iDroid Royal V7
This phone is just perfect for anyone who is looking for a good camera. Its 13 MP rear and 5 MP front cameras are ideal for HD pictures and shoots. V7 is actually a Phablet with 540×960 pixel resolution. With 1 GB RAM and 8 GB ROM, which is comparatively a bit less than other vendors, this phone offers a decent design, which is unlikely to be found in other counterparts. Instead of round edges, V7 has rectangular corners to give you a premium feel.
Other phones of iDroid that I look forward to are:
· iDroid Apache G6
· Tango 2 White
· iDroid BALR X7
· Tango A5
Apart from these, I would really like to see Amazon phones making their way in the Pakistani market. However, I think these two brands will probably be successful in making me forget my previous phone by staying with me through thick and thin. RIP Samsung Galaxy S3!
There are very few artists who give value to their friends, let alone celebrate their fifteen years of association with a dedicated hashtag. Sounds strange, right? Well, this certainly is not. A few days back I saw posts with #15yearswithcallfans being shared on my social media timelines. Excited to read the name “Call” I decided to examine the hashtag and it got better with every passing minute.
If you have lived in Turkey or enjoyed their traditional food in the Middle East before, you will definitely know my struggle to find the similar authentic Turkish taste in Pakistan. So, after I was disappointed in finding the best Hummus in Karachi that tasted exactly like the one they have in the Middle East, a friend referred me to the ongoing Turkish Food Festival at Avari Towers. Intrigued by the name only, I decided to give it a try because among all the high end hotels I know; only Avari Towers is well-known for celebrating food festivals from different regions where they do not compromise on the taste and quality.

Now that you are here to find out the chick, let me tell you, you won’t regret reading about the tenderness and juiciness this scrumptious delicacy is made of. C’mon, do not be a pervert. We are talking about Golden Chick, the new chicken outlet that is winning the hearts (and tummies) of Karachiites and not the one you were thinking about 😉
Over the years, Dolmen Mall has established itself as the favorite destination of shoppers. And why not? With so many brands under one roof, amazing activities that are happening almost every other day and shopping festivals that keep enticing the customers, the group of shopping malls have become an ultimate destination for family and friends get-together. This time around, the leading chain of shopping malls kicked off its annual shopping festival, Dolmen Shopping Festival (DSF) on December 16th, 2016. The fun filled festival will last for 17 days while offering amazing discounts and exciting activities to its visitors.
“Woman commits suicide with 2 children over dowry”
“Woman ends her life for not bringing enough dowry”
“Woman burnt for not asking dowry from her parents”
These are just few of many headlines from newspapers that popped up when I entered the word “Dowry” on Google. Needless, to say many of such cases go unreported because a bride’s parents are too ‘poor’ or ‘powerless’ to even get justice.
One fine day, I was scrolling through my Facebook timeline and I came across a handsome guy donning an absolutely stunning shirt. Inspired by the amazing print, I took a look at the page Brumano and was awestruck to see their unusually fascinating men’s clothing range. They have everything required to make man a gentleman. From shirts, trousers, polo shirts, jackets, sweaters and accessories, the website is a game changer in men’s fashion. Continue reading
I am a marketer by profession and whenever I come across some stellar concept, I cannot help talking about it. This time around, it is Coca Cola which has surprised me with their latest breakthrough initiative. The Company has come up with a new innovative technology that enables the deaf to experience music. Can you imagine how extraordinarily amazing the idea is? It is super cool and I can see it as a new benchmark in the music industry. The idea was promoted on Coke’s existing music platform Coke Studio.
The marketing strategies for telco brands had been a bit mainstream and obvious in the past few years. It either used comic, satire or unnecessarily stretched dance numbers to convince users to switch to their network. Though these tactics are entertaining and fun to watch, they seriously lacked inspiration. However, recently while watching the #TelenorRawaan ad, I was hooked to the screen.
