Here's how to force update to Windows 10

Today is July 29, the day Microsoft launches final version of Windows 10. However unlike previous versions of Windows, Microsoft is doing a phase rollout of Windows 10 upgrade, which means not everyone will get the update on the same day.
But as they, where there’s a will, there is a way. And so if you are in the same boat as many others whose Windows 10 upgrade hasn’t automatically started downloading yet, you can follow the tutorial below to force Windows Update to download the update for you right now. I have personally tested this and can confirm it worked on my Dell laptop. There’s no reason why it won’t work for anyone of you on any other computer running Windows.
How to check if your PC isn’t already downloading the Windows 10 upgrade? Navigate to C:\ drive and see if it has a folder named $Windows.~BT (you may have to enable Hidden items to check this). If it is there, you are all set, but if it isn’t there, you will need to follow the instructions below to force Windows 10 downloading.
Ready? Lets do this!

The flagship battle between the budget phones: Moto G3 vs YU Yureka Plus vs Xiaomi Mi 4i

Motorola has just launched the long-awaited Moto G. And like many other competitive handsets around, Moto G, too, has seen its fair share of rumours and leaks.The device is available in two variants and will be available on Flipkart by midnight, today.
The device boasts of a 5-inch 720p display with 1280×720-pixel resolution and 294ppi. It is powered by a 1.4GHz Quad core CPU and the processor has been upgraded from Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 to Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, along with an Adreno306 GPU. It is juiced by a 2,470 mAh battery that can last roughly up to a day. The handset is available in two variants- 8GB storage with 1GB RAM and 16GB storage with 2GB RAM.
Camera specifications include a 13MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, Field of view (FOV) up to 76 degrees. The 5MP front camera consists of a f/2.2 aperture and Field v (FOV) 72 degrees Display flash with fixed focus.
We have pitted the Moto G against the smartphones in the similar price bracket. Let us see how it fared.

As we can see above, Yu Yureka Plus is apparently leading the way to be the first choice of the market due to the same, or better specs in each category at a much cheaper price. But, Moto G should not be undervalued in this race. We think that by adding features like being waterproof for up to 3 feet for 30 minutes, or just shaking the handset for the camera to start automatically, should take the Moto G (Gen 3) a step forward. And, how can we forget the choice between 10 different coloured shell covers and 5 flip covers that leave us spoiled for choice.

The difference between One and Two or Two and Three

After months of leaks, speculations, announcement and hype, the OnePlus 2 is here, and like many, we had to watch the launch without the VR Cardboard, which was more like seeing a footage shot with fish-eye lens with motion sensors. Anyway, OnePlus says that the OnePlus 2 is going to be the flagship killer and with the price of Rs. 22,999 for the 16GB variant and  Rs. 24,999 for the 64GB variant. To help you decide whether the phone is worth a hole in your pocket, let’s take a look at the main factors made while purchasing a phone – performance, display, camera and notable features.

OnePlus One was criticised for overheating quickly and this time, the company seems to have taken care of it. The new OnePlus 2 uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, which combined with thermal gel and graphite in the phone should take care of the overheating problem. The 1.8GHz octa-core 64-bit processor combined with 4GB of RAM is fast enough to run Facebook, Twitter and Clash of Clans simultaneously at the same time.
Although the processor is capable of 4K streaming, you won’t be able to view any 4K in its native resolution. The phone sports a 5.5 inch display with a 1080p resolution. While it is natural to expect a 4K display in this age, it is also important to note that a 1080p display is more than enough at 5.5 inch. Higher resolutions are better experienced on large screens, such as TV or computer displays. The picture may be clearer at 4K but even 1080p provides good viewing experience.
one plus 2 USB
The phone uses the Type-C USB port, which is good because it is a reversible port that can take care of power, data transfers, and display output. Being slim and compatible with almost every device with standard USB ports relieves customers of four or six connecting ports. It reduces the demand of the system’s space and gives manufacturers freedom to trim down the size of machines and, hence, weight. Moreover, OnePlus 2 uses a lightweight aluminium alloy, so the phone should not feel like a clunky device in your hands.
OnePlus 2 sports a 13MP rear camera with sensor pixel size of 1.3 micron pixels. While OnePlus has retained the same megapixels, by increasing the sensor size it has improved the quality of the image. Put it this way, iPhone 5S used a sensor with 1.5 micron pixels and most standard phones use a sensor with 1.12 micron pixels.  Thus, your images will be captured faster, will be less blurred and even if you capture a photo in a dark environment, it won’t be a monstrosity. For selfie lovers, there is a 5MP front camera.
one plus 2
The phone can be customised using OnePlus’ StyleSwap covers available in four variants – Bamboo, Black Apricot, Rosewood, and Kevlar. According to reviews so far, the covers can be swapped without any hassle. Also, there is a new feature called the ‘alert slider’. It is a button on the side of the phone that toggles between three notification profiles – ‘None’, ‘Priority’ and ‘All’. The button was added on the suggestion of a Reddit user. The phone has a 3,300 mAh non-removable battery and runs on Android 5.1 with OxygenOS.
For those disappointed with the display, do not worry. Adding 4K resolution would’ve only added to its cost and moreover, streaming 4K content consumes a lot of data. Given that OnePlus has improved the overall design of OnePlus 2, it is worth its value.
The OnePlus 2 will be available in India from August 11.

The cons of the OnePlus 2

The Plus 2 officially arrived today, and at first glance, it is worth the price. Still, like many who complain about The Avengers for being incomplete, there are some who wish OnePlus 2 could have been more than it is.
We look at 5 things that OnePlus could have included in its flagship killer (their words, not ours):

4K or 2K Display

OnePlus went with 1080p display for the OnePlus 2, citing it enough for viewing experience. Although 1080p resolution makes for a good viewing experience, 4K display adds more clarity and livens up the picture. Remember Sony Xperia Z series? If you ever watched the 4K trailer for The Amazing Spider Man 2  on a Xperia Z, the 4K resolution makes the trailer look full of life, not to forget the smoothness with which it plays. OnePlus could’ve used the advantage of Qualcomm Snapdragon 810, but it didn’t. The upside to this is  – the 1080p display might’ve helped keep its cost down.

NFC

NFC: While not huge, NFC has become important over the years. NFC could’ve allowed users to pay directly from the phone, connect accessories, transfer files and much more. Seems like a missed opportunity for OnePlus. At the India launch, the company claimed that the product has been made after conducting extensive research from consumers. Apparently, the data collected showed that not many users were inclined on using the NFC feature.

Open Sale System

OnePlus Invites
OnePlus faced criticism for this last time and the company faces it again, this year. Invites are dreadful; they may arrive late, may be expired and above all, it is hard to score one in the first place. For example, the company said that regular visitors on its forums would be favoured. OnePlus has to find a better way for the registration process.

More Storage Options

It’s unfair. OnePlus offers OnePlus 2 in two variants: 16GB/64GB. While those with 64GB may have no problem with storage, those with 16GB will be banging their heads against the wall. The company can introduce an expandable storage option in the lower variants. Or it can do the alternate: make the 32GB the lowest model, just like Apple did. This should satisfy users with storage problems.

Wireless And Quick Charging

one plus 2 USB
Since smartphone companies have failed to provide us with long-lasting batteries, they should be focusing on making sure that charging a device is quick and easy.
Any other feature you wished the OnePlus 2 had? Feel free to leave a comment below.

Motorola launched the Moto G (3rd Gen) custom made for Indian market

Motorola announced the launch of its new smartphone the Moto G (Gen 3) today. The phone is part of the Moto G series, which became a huge success in India when its first installment released in November 2013. Their mantra is to give their user the pure Android experience, priced reasonably.

Finally OnePlus TWO has been launched

 We been following the young Chinese start-up, OnePlus, since it released its first smartphone in December 2013, OnePlus One at a price of Rs. 21,999. The first thing everyone noticed about OnePlus was that it provides the user with quality as well as a reasonable price tag.OnePlus thrived, in both the Indian as well as Chinese markets, despite it being a new company and despite conducting all its transactions online, including its launch. And yet again, OnePlus is creating waves. Today, we meet the second flagship by the company, the OnePlus 2.


OnePlus adopted a new strategy for the launch of their new device by leaking sneak-peeks of their smartphone on the official blog, almost at regular intervals. This created a frenzy around the device with speculations about its display, processor, launch date etc.
Amidst all the anticipation, we have the final details of the OnePlus 2’s Exclusive launch today. As leaked by their official blog previously, the display of the phone is 5.5 inch screen with a 1080p resolution. The smartphone comes with a chipset of Qualcomm Snapdragon 810.
OnePlus 2
One of the exciting features about this phone is its 13MP rear camera with sensor pixel size of 1.3 microns, which are supposedly 35% larger than standard smartphone cameras. The added Laser Focus feature will help take clear shots in less that 0.3 seconds. The camera even includes OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) – a feature previously seen on the iPhone 6 Plus. The company has added a 5MP camera in the front.
As previously revealed, the new smartphone has a reversible USB Type-C charging/syncing port and a fingerprint sensor which can store five unique fingerprints.  The OnePlus 2 comes with an Android  Lollipop-based Oxygen OS.
Design-wise, the company has taken things up a notch. While like the previous iteration, it features a textured Sandstone back cover, the company has also added a premium metal rim. In case you’re not fond of the Sandstone finish, the company is also launching StyleSwap covers along with the phone. For now, they announced Bamboo, Black Apricot, Rosewood and Kevlar.
Here’s our first look at the smartphone:



The OnePlus 2 will be available in two variants – 16GB and 64GB. The 16GB variant, with 3GB RAM, will be available for Rs. 22,999 and the 64GB, with 4GB RAM, will be priced at Rs. 24,999.
The smartphone will be available to buy in India from the 11th of August. The company has also announced that it would be opening pop-up experience stores in cities around the world. This will help potential consumers get a better idea about the device, before spending their money. In India, Bangalore and Delhi are the chosen cities which will host the pop-ups.

Everything you need to know about the OnePlus Two

By @TechRockerzWala

After achieving a great success of the OnePlus' One, they are about to launch the successor to the One.



As far as I know OnePlus is the world's first mobile company to reveal or sort of tease it's upcoming handset's specs which has made a #hype on the social media. Well you might be thinking,"Ahhh... what the hell this guy us talking about,, come to the point man!".



So the things unveiled by the are that the Two will house a USB type 'C', if you don't know about it don't worry I'll tell, it was first unveiled by Apple in their new MacBook which is a flip able cable and has faster read and write speeds by this I mean a lot faster. Now comes the processor which is the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 810 v2.0. 
Which will not be making it a frying pan like the LG G Flex2 and the HTC One M9. For multitasking its going to a lot smoother with the 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM again which was first unveiled by Samsung on their Galaxy S6/EDGE but having 3Gigs. A fingerprint sensor which the company is teasing to be better than on the Samsung Galaxy S6/EDGE and on the Apple iPhone 6/6Plus and the battery will be of 3300mAh which is slightly bigger than on the One.

Here are some of the leaked images of the new Moto G (2015)


By TechRockerzWala
Take a look at this year’s Moto G (2015), also known as “Osprey” or model XT1540. An anonymous tipster just sent us the photos you see above, which show one of the best looks yet at Motorola’s still unannounced smartphone.


We don’t have confirmation from the source on what to expect on the hardware side of the spectrum, though earlier reports have pointed to a Snapdragon 410 chip, 1GB of RAM and a 5-inch 1280 x 720-pixel display, a 13-megapixel camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 8GB of storage and LTE support.


There’s no word yet on when the third generation Moto G will hit the market. Last year’s model launched in September, so it’s plausible the third generation will launch a year later.
