Sportskeeda, one of the leading sports website, has comp up with their own Sports app called the Sportskeeda Live. It’s not yet another sports app. Actually it as an altogether different take on how a Sports App works. Though the sports app is still in Beta, the level of quality it maintains comes as a surprise.

Talking about the design, the app features a minimal and well though UI which makes it easier to focus on the content rather than the design. As per the Sportskeeds team, they choose the UI after several weeks of testing to make sure it works flawlessly.

One thing that really makes the app presonal and relevant is it’s ability to be fully coustomized. One the first launch, the app prompts the users to select their favourite sports so that your neewsfeed are filled with only the sports you like.

Another great thing about the app is that it supports a very wide range of sports. Sports such as squash, badminton and many more have been covered in the app. Unlike many other sports app out there, this app supports live coverage of games, making it stand out of the crowd.

htc desire t7

Zuaba, an import-export tracking website, keeps a check on the devices that ship to India before the official launch has shared that HTC has shipped two versions of an unreleased tablet for testing in India.

These tablets have been shipped from Taiwan to India on June 26 with the name HTC Desire T7. Two versions of the device have been sent, one of which is Dual SIM while the other is single SIM. A total of 20 devices has been sent for testing purpose.HTC-Dream-8-inch-tablet-8-490x239

As per the sources, HTC Desire T7 Dual Sim features a 7-inch display with a 1.2 Ghz quad processor. The Single SIM Desire T7 is also expected to have the same configurations except that it will support only one SIM.

Desire T7 is expected to be priced at $180 and thus will be in the affordable segment for the users. Since the device is still in testing phase, there is no announcement on when Desire T7 will be launched.

Our take on HTC Desire T7

HTC is known for making really good looking and better-performing smartphones. However, there are two segments where the company seriously lags. One is the budget segment of smartphone i.e. the price bracket of $200 and other is Tablets segment.

Looks like HTC has started to work on the lagging segments and Desire T7 is the result of it. They have tried to kill two birds with a single stone by pricing Desire T7 in the affordable price bracket.

It will be really interesting to see how the market reacts to Desire T7.

HTC Blinkfeed app is undoubtedly one of the best apps that come pre-installed with any HTC device. Because of its super smooth UI, it has been the apple of eye for HTC users.

However, HTC left millions of hearts broken when they announced the introduction of ads in Blinkfeed. A new Blinkfeed update that rolled out recently added the ability to show ads in between the feeds.

In the blog post HTC mentioned that the advertisements will be limited in number and will blend in between the feeds. For now, the advertisements will be shown in a few markets only and will expand to other markets in the future.

Ads in BlinkFeed will be clearly marked with a Sponsored label or a Buy Now button and will look something like this.

desire-616-lollipop

HTC Desire 616 is undoubtedly one of the most budget friendly Android phone out there. Despite of its low price, HTC made sure that the device features a solid configuration and it might also be planning to unveil desire 816 lollipop update as soon as possible.

Desire 816 features a 5 inch Capacitive touchscreen having a resolution of 720×1280 pixels, giving the user an ultimate touchscreen experience. With HTC Sense UI pre-loaded on it, the device performs butter smooth and shows no lags whatsoever.

desire 616 lollipop

However one question that every desire 816 owner has is whether their HTC Desire 816 will get lollipop update or not. Even though the device performs pretty well with the current android version, yet the lollipop update would bring lots of new features and enhancements to the phone, thereby enhancing the over all experience of the users.

But as it seems, Desire 816 might not get official lollipop update from HTC. Actually HTC hasn’t even rolled out desire 616 kitkat update yet, so expecting them to release two android updates that too back to back is very impractical.

Though there might not be an official kitkat or lollipop update, the developer community of this device might soon come up with custom rom for desire 616 so that the users can taste the lollipop experience on their desire 616.

In the mean time, you can subscribe to our newsletter and like us on Facebook so that we can inform you as soon as any update comes out or a custom ROM is released for desire 616.
