Redmi Note 13 Pro 5G

Since they first launched around a decade ago, Redmi mobiles have been some of my favourite phones, specifically because of the new features and value they bring in at an excellent price point. The Ultra Hi-Res 200 MP camera that takes photos and video that could put some flagships to shame, or the 1.5K AMOLED display, which is glorious for viewing media, content, and your apps. The double-sided glass body looks slick, while the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 5G processor provides great performance throughout use. The 67 W turbocharger ensured that I needed to charge only for 20 minutes for a day’s charge. Dual stereo speakers and a 3.5mm jack seal the deal for me. The series has been setting the bar since Day 1, and the Note 13 Pro 5G is a trendsetter for sure in its segment.

Rs 25,999

Govo GoSurround 970

G0VO’s soundbars offer clear audio, good bass, and excellent separation. The GoSurround 970 is a 5.1-channel soundbar with 525 W of power at your disposal. The 970 also employs Dolby Audio for a true cinematic experience. I played a few Star Wars movies with Dolby Atmos encoding and found the sound to be exhilarating, with minute nuances picked up by the speaker system. Apple Music via BT also sounded great with a super wide soundstage and crisp vocals. I do enjoy casting my Android mobile’s screen and sound to the TV while playing mobile racing games, and here is where the GoSurround 970 (compared to my TV audio) was outstanding. Top-notch soundbar for the price!!

Rs 11,999


CANVAS is an entire sound system built into a soundbar body to enhance the quality of sound coming from your TV. Available in multiple sizes to fit below TVs, the seamless speaker comes with a mount that works on floors and walls. Multiple tweeters, passive radiators, and woofers, along with HiFi amps and DACs, allow for a sublime sonic experience. Watching TV content and listening to music will never be the same again.
