How to Run pokemon go in kolkata even after the blockage

Pokemon Go!, its everywhere, except some places, If you are in kolkata /banglore/chennai/hyderabad and maybe some other city and getting a blank map you are not alone..

The game hasnt officially launched in India , but still people are playing it by downloading it from apk sites, And specially the big cities like kolkata / banglore/hyderabad/chennai/kerela which was causing server overload, which the makers didnt liked, so they started new strategy, blocked it in these cities, i know this has caused much frustration ,

But we are known to do some "jugaad" (tricks for getting things done) So here are some jugaad to get it working in these cities: (Note:- These tricks are actually used for different purposes they are used for playing this game without getting out , you'll read more )

Method 1 (requires root for android and also also work for unlocked iphone):
Fake gps app-> Basically what we 're going to do is tell the server we are not in that city.. (Like Our facebook page for more tricks)

By using this app you can enter any location like New York etc. And the game should be working , but then the game become too easy as you can move the gps pointer and find pokemons without getting out...


Method 2 (requires root too): If that app is not working then probably this one as it forces the phone to change gps location -> Xpos Framework with gps module but it works with android only here is the link

Nokia Partners With Airtel to Offer Free Download of Android Applications

Nokia said in Mumbai on Friday it has partnered with Airtel to offer six months of free download of Android applications on its newly launched Nokia XL phone.
"To help our consumers experience these apps, we are offering free downloads on Airtel from the Nokia Store and several popular third-party apps stores," Nokia India Sales Director Marketing Viral Oza, said in a release.
The plan allows up to 500MB of free usage through which consumers can download their favourite apps from the Nokia Store and the 1Mobile store.
On the Nokia XL Dual SIM (Review | Pictures), consumers can access and download a wide array of Android apps, which can be side-loaded as well as downloaded from Nokia's own store and several popular third- party app stores.
Last month, Nokia had launched the Nokia XL Dual SIM Android smartphone at Rs. 11,489 in India. It runs the Nokia X software platform (version 1.0), which is based on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and is powered by Microsoft and Nokia services.
The Nokia XL Dual SIM supports dual-SIM (GSM+GSM) cards with dual standby. The smartphone features a 5-inch LCD display with WVGA (480x800 pixels) resolution, and offers a pixel density of 187ppi.
It is powered by a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, clocked at 1GHz, alongside 768MB of RAM. The Nokia XL Dual SIM comes with 4GB of inbuilt storage and supports expandable storage up to 32GB via microSD card.
The Nokia XL Dual SIM sports a 5-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and also houses a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The smartphone packs a 2000mAh battery which is rated to deliver up to 16 hours of talk time and up to 720 hours of standby time.

Nokia XL Review: The Experiment Continues

In our review of the pioneering Nokia X nearly a month ago, we said we were uncertain of the Android-based platform's future. Considering the fact that Microsoft was, at the time, just about to gain complete control over the Finnish phonemaker, it seemed odd that the software giant would embrace something fundamentally dependent on its biggest competitor's work.
Since then, the Microsoft-Nokia acquisition has been finalised, and not only has the Nokia XL been launched, but rumours of an improved second-generation Nokia X line are growing stronger. On the other hand, the Nokia X has received a hefty price cut and is already selling for around 25 percent less than its initial launch price.
Despite its obvious shortcomings, there's definitely a place in the market for the Nokia X, even with strong new competition in the form of the Motorola Moto E. Things aren't quite as clear when it comes to the Nokia XL, a larger and more expensive variation of the X. In terms of features and specifications, the two are almost identical, which means the XL is at a disadvantage in a market already crowded with relatively modern Android and even Windows Phone devices.
The Nokia X line was meant to sit below the Lumias and attract entry-level customers to the Nokia brand, in the hope that they would someday graduate to a more expensive device. However, the XL is more expensive than the Lumia 525 and is just about the same price as the brand new Lumia 630 Dual SIM. Interestingly, while the 630 is a bit more powerful, it doesn't have a front camera, flash, or some of the other niceties that the XL does. We'll examine this curious state of affairs along with our evaluation of the XL on its own merits.
Look and feel
The Nokia XL is a magnified version of the Nokia X in every way. It has exactly the same proportions, lines and angles, and is even available in the same retina-scalding palette of primary colours. The main differences are the addition of a flash on the rear panel and a camera on the front. The only other changes are inconsequentially minor: the 3.5mm headset socket is in the centre of the top edge rather than to one side, and the speaker grille has evolved from a small patch to a long slit.
There's still only a single capacitive button on the front face, and it's still not backlit. The front-facing camera sits next to the Nokia logo, leaving the rest of the front pretty bare. There are no status or charging indicators, but Nokia has included its Glance screen tech which lets you see the time and notification alerts even when the phone is in standby.
The power and volume buttons are on the right side, and the left edge is blank as is the case with most Nokias now. The brightly coloured shell extends around the sides of the phone itself, giving the front face a distinct border, but also adding bulk. Beneath the shell, you'll see the removable battery and slots for two Micro-SIM cards and a microSD card.
The XL is pretty hefty and unwieldy. The hard corners are even more of a problem than they were on the X because you'll need to stretch to reach the corners of the larger screen with your thumbs. At 190g, this phone is noticeably heavier than nearly everything else of its size on the market today.
Construction quality is absolutely top-notch. The Nokia XL's finish is just as good as that of any of the more expensive Lumias. You won't see rough edges or cheap materials anywhere. The white and black variants actually feel pretty premium.
Specifications and features
If you were hoping that Nokia would redefine value at this price point, you'll be disappointed. The Nokia XL is built around a rather arthritic Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play processor; a two year old dual-core model that runs at 1GHz. There's 768MB of RAM; a paltry 256MB improvement over the Nokia X. There's 4GB of internal storage space, of which less than 2GB is available to users. You'll have to buy a microSD card, and at least the XL supports capacities up to 32GB.
The screen measures 5 inches across diagonally, compared to its smaller sibling's 4-inch screen. It doesn't sound like a huge difference, but it is. Sadly, the screen's resolution wasn't scaled up with its size, so it's still the same 800x480 grid, except that it looks a whole lot worse. This works out to 186.6 pixels per inch, which is the lowest density we've seen in a very long time - most phones around this price range and especially this screen size are at least 960x540, if not 1280x720.
Connectivity is adequate - the XL supports 3G data only on the primary SIM, but there's also Wi-Fi b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0. There are a few sensors - an accelerometer, proximity sensor and ambient light sensor - but nothing fancy.
The software is identical to that on the Nokia X, which you can read about in great detail here. Android fans will find a lot of familiar sights below the surface and it's all still fairly easy to use, but the Nokia XL is ultimately limited by the underpowered hardware. The single back/home button is also still annoying, as is the somewhat unpredictability of whether you'll end up on the home screen or Nokia's Fastlane screen of notifications and recently used apps. There are also no shortcuts and no dock for frequently used apps such as the phone dialler. Of course you're free to customise the experience and experiment with grafting on the missing parts of the Android experience.
Nokia's excellent Mix Radio and Here maps are complemented by a large number of preloaded apps and games: Bookmyshow, Facebook, Twitter, PicsArt, Plants vs Zombies, Danger Dash, Bejeweled 2, Astro File Manager, Opera, Vine, BBM, WeChat, NewsHunt and Sony Liv, amongst others.
A Cleanup app shows you a list of recently used applications that you can close with a single tap, as well as a display of the amount of RAM currently used. It's nice to have since there's no other way to switch between running apps or close them.
The Nokia XL performed very slightly better in our tests than its smaller sibling did, which is probably down to the marginal increase in the amount of RAM available. Since all other hardware is the same, there's nothing else we can attribute this result to. That's still not saying much, as both sets of scores are amongst the lowest we have on record.
The interface is quite laggy, but we didn't see quite as many "Please wait" screens as we did on the Nokia X. There still isn't much hope for video playback, though. Even 720p videos were laggy to the point of being unwatchable. Audio was loud enough, but not clear.
We had no problem with call quality, though there was at least one place in which 3G reception dropped out and we were forced to fall back on EDGE even when other phones on the same network were fine. Battery life was extremely disappointing - the Nokia XL lasted just 4 hours, 35 minutes when looping a video, which makes us uncertain whether it can even survive a full day of moderate usage without needing a recharge.
For all its other shortcomings, the Nokia XL has a fantastic camera. It's almost unbelievable how good our test photos were. In daylight, images were crisp and accurate without any clue that they had been taken with a low-end phone. The camera had a bit of trouble judging exposure levels in tricky scenes with light and dark elements, but other than that the results were fantastic. Low-light shots came out quite well, but the flash was a bit disappointing, and gave photos a somewhat artificial quality.
You can set the contrast, sharpness, saturation, ISO and white balance, and there's also automatic face detection, touch-to-focus, and a few simple colour filters. We were impressed to see options for exposure metering and manual focus control, though these are buried in the settings menu. The front camera is also pretty good, but you have far less control over it.
(Click to see full size)
Photos are taken at 1600x1200 by default, but the resolution can go up to 2592x1944, and there's also a wide aspect ratio 1920x1080 option. Picture quality is set to "superfine" by default, which explains the sharpness and low levels of noise. You can also choose between H.264, H.263 and MPEG4 encoding for videos, for some reason, but videos are recorded at the pointlessly low resolution of 352x288 unless you change this manually.
Performance that was just about acceptable from a phone costing Rs. 8,500 is more than disappointing from a phone that costs Rs. 11,500. Not only has Nokia acknowledged that the original X was overpriced, but fresh competition in the form of the Moto E has made it even tougher to recommend. That means the Nokia XL is even worse value right now.
Sure, you get a big screen, but it's comically low-resolution and there's no advantage to it whatsoever unless you really love the Nokia X platform and have poor eyesight or extremely large fingers. The flash and front camera are also nice to have, but definitely not worth the premium.
Despite all its charms, we cannot recommend the Nokia XL, simply because there are far better phones at its price in the market today - one of which is Nokia's own Lumia 630. In a battle between the two, the XL would have the better cameras and potential compatibility with Android apps, but the Lumia 630 would tie or win on pretty much every other count, including performance, battery life, screen quality, construction quality, ease of use, practicality, and weight.
On the Android side of the fence, the Moto E is cheaper and the Moto G is only slightly more expensive. There's also the Lenovo S660Samsung Galaxy S Duos 2Sony Xperia E1 and HTC Desire 210, plus a whole raft of choices from Indian brands.
The Nokia XL's only saving grace is that some people value large screens above everything else. We expect a hefty price cut down the line, so even if you're tempted now, we'd suggest holding off.

Alleged iPhone 6 Compared With Samsung Galaxy S5 in Leaked Image


Apple's much-anticipated next iPhone, expected to be called the iPhone 6, has been speculated about and leaked in images several times over the past few months. And it seems there's no stopping till the date Apple officially reveals its next-generation iPhone devices - leaks have been tipping there will be two display size variants - 4.7- or 5.5-inch.After being compared with the Apple iPhone 5 on Thursday, a new leaked image posted by GSMArena shows the alleged iPhone 6 pictured beside the Samsung Galaxy S5.
The alleged wider, thinner iPhone 6 seems to feature a 4.7-inch display, and is slightly shorter than the Galaxy S5 (which sports a 5.1-inch display) in side by side comparison. The alleged iPhone 6 in the leaked image also appears to be thinner than the Galaxy S5 (Review I Pictures), which is 8.1mm thick.
Apple's rumoured iPhone 6 is widely anticipated to sport curved edges, doing away with its current straight-edge design. Further, the next iPhones' sides are said to house the power button positioned on the right panel of the device, instead on the top panel seen on current iPhone models. Meanwhile, the side panels are likely to include a slightly modified volume buttons.
A Taiwanese celebrity named Jimmy Lin on Thursday posted an image of the alleged iPhone 6 compared alongside iPhone 5 and also shared his first-hand experience with the unannounced iPhone. According to Lin, the alleged iPhone 6 with 4.7-inch display had a great display and was easy to grip despite of its large display size.
A recent report claimed that Apple's next iPhone would hit the shelves on September 19.
The Cupertino-based company has been rumoured to be testing a higher screen resolution on at least one of the two iPhone models likely to debut this year. An earlier report suggested that one of the two alleged iPhone 6 models would come with a 960x1704 pixels resolution screen, compared to the 640x1136 pixels resolution found on the current iPhone models that sport 4-inch displays.
We remind readers however, that nothing is official yet, and that all such leaks must be taken with a pinch of salt.

Motorolo E vs Micromax Unite 2

Motorola Moto E vs. Micromax Unite 2: Which One is for You?

Motorola entered the sub-Rs. 10,000 smartphone arena with the Moto E and we called it the Goliath of budget smartphones in our review. A lot of Indian manufacturers had to race to catch up with it.Micromax is one among them and its new offering, the Unite 2, tries to do something different with support for 21 Indian languages out-of-the-box.
The common features in both the phones are that they run Android 4.4.2 (Kitkat), have 1GB of RAM, and have 5-megapixel cameras. We pitted both phones against each other and did a feature-by-feature comparison to figure out which one comes out on top.
Look and Feel
One phone has character and the other is just another sheep in the flock. The Moto E is the former and the Micromax Unite 2, the latter. With the trademark curved back, dimpled chin and interchangeable rear covers in different colours, the Motorola fits perfectly in with the company's new design philosophy, which started with the premium Moto X. On the other hand, the Micromax Unite 2 is a boring black slab available with four different coloured back panels, which is still fewer options than the Moto E. Also, the Unite 2 is heavier than the Moto E.
The Unite 2 has a bigger 4.7-inch screen with a resolution of 480x800, but the Moto E has a comparatively smaller 4.3-inch screen sporting a resolution of 540x960. The higher pixel density on the Moto E coupled with slightly better viewing angles makes it superior to the Unite 2. This round clearly goes to the Moto E.
Moto E: 1 Unite 2: 0
On paper, the quad-core Mediatek MT6582 processor seems better than the dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200. Both phones feature 4GB of internal storage, but the Unite 2 offers only 890MB to user while the Moto E offers around 2.2GB. Thankfully, both phones support microSD cards of up to 32GB.
While the Moto E has a 5-megapixel camera, it has no flash or auto-focus, unlike the Unite 2. Moreover, it doesn't have a front-facing camera while the Unite 2 has a 2-megapixel one. Overall, Micromax Unite 2 comes out on top here.
Moto E: 1 Unite 2: 1
As we mentioned earlier, both phones run Android 4.4.2 (Kitkat), but the Moto E's version is closer to vanilla Android save for a few additional apps. The Unite 2's support of 21 Indian languages is an advantage. 
However, the Unite 2's additional apps are more irritating than functional, whereas Moto Migrate, Assist and Alert on the Moto E are quite useful. We're also quite sure that the Moto E will get the Android 4.4.3 update sooner. All in all, the Moto E wins this round.
Moto E: 2 Unite 2: 1
The Moto E's camera is a joke. It is almost like Motorola added it as an afterthought. The camera on the Unite 2, on the other hand, takes decent photographs. At least one can focus on a subject using the camera on the Unite 2. Take a look at the samples below. The Unite 2 knocks out its competition in this round.
Moto E: 2 Unite 2: 2

(Click to enlarge the Micromax Unite 2 camera's sample picture, above)
When it comes down to pure numbers, the Unite 2's quad-core MT6582 outperforms the Moto E's dual-core Snapdragon 200, but in the graphics tests, the Moto E's Adreno 302 has better numbers than the Mali-400 MP2 in the Unite 2. 

At the end of the day, they are merely numbers. We can vouch for the fact that the Moto E performs better in everyday tasks such as opening multiple apps and browsing the Web. The Micromax Unite 2 has better battery life, though. Choosing the winner in this round was tough but we think the Moto E beats its opponent.
Moto E: 3 Unite 2: 2
In the end, the  Motorola Moto E has a marginal upper hand over the Micromax Unite 2. For users worried about after-sales service, Motorola India has committed to providing enough service centres around the country. Motorola also recently resolved the unregistered IMEI number issue affecting some Moto G units.
There is a minor hassle, which is that the Moto E is available only through the e-commerce website Flipkart and is currently almost always out of stock. On the other hand, the Micromax Unite 2 was launched at Rs. 6,999 but since then the price seems to have been bumped. We are speculating here, but it could be because Micromax wants to make the most of the Moto E's scarcity. Whatever the reason, the Micromax Unite 2 definitely has a better camera and is therefore the phone you should choose if that is a big priority for you when buying a smartphone. Otherwise, we think the Moto E is a better bargain and is more future proof in terms of software updates.

Cool gadgets for your iphone

We use our phones while driving far more often than we should. It is our GPS, way of asking Auntie what the directions are, texting our friends, and method of looking up local eateries around our destination. However, we do this while we’re driving a one-ton death machine. If you want to keep your phone out of your hands, but still need it to find your way, then you’ll want a mount of sorts to keep it within your field of vision, without having it in your grasp.

The Grip Strip is a sticky pad for your dashboard that will keep your phone in place. It’s made of a polymer compound that will keep pretty much whatever you stick on it in place. While it is primarily meant for navigation systems or flat-backed phones, this would also work for pens, sunglasses, and pretty much anything else you want to keep in place. Well, maybe not your coffee, as that is never going to go well.

It’s resistant to water, high temperatures, sunlight, and if it starts to lose its stickiness, just wipe it down with a wet towel. It is not recommended that you stick this to any airbag panels, for what seems like obvious reasons. Thankfully, this shouldn’t stain or leave a residue, and that should work both ways. Getting one of these will cost you around $12, while getting a back of three will cost around $30. You’ll have the option of getting these in red, black, or blue.The Grip Strip keeps you safe while driving!
