Realme has been a consistent performer in the budget personal audio category, offering good products for an attractive price. They recently launched two new models in their Buds Wireless 2 series that are meant to succeed their older Buds Wireless neckband. While the Realme Buds Wireless 2 flaunts some premium features like active noise cancellation (ANC) and support for Sony's LDAC codecs, the one with the Neo suffix that we have for review today, is a scaled down version of the same.

Before brands like Realme, Soundcore and OPPO spread their wings to the sub- Rs. 2,000 segment of wireless earphones and upped the ante, brands like Boat and Boult Audio were viable options in the category. Boult recently launched their new Airbass ENCore true wireless (TWS) earbuds that claim to focus on supreme call quality among other things. The buds are meant to have a superior environmental noise cancellation algorithm, and hence the highlighted ENC in the model name.

There are dozens of fitness watches in India but hardly any smartwatches. Today, we got our hands on one of the most recent and popular smartwatches around, the Samsung Galaxy Watch4 Classic. This series is crucial for Samsung too as they look to jump from their homegrown Tizen platform to Google Wear OS.

Just recently we reviewed the Redmi Earbuds 3 Pro that boasts of some features unheard of under Rs. 3,000. And, now Realme's new Buds Q2 hopes to do something similar in the sub-Rs. 2,500 category of TWS earbuds. While Xiaomi opted for a more radical approach like a dual driver setup and aptX Adaptive support, Realme has chosen to tread a feature-rich but known path. It would be fair to say that it is a path they have paved themselves.

The popular screen sizes for Full HD TVs in India are 40 and 43-inches. 42-inch TVs used to be a thing almost a decade ago and Thomson is looking to bring it back in their PATH series of Android TVs targeted at budget conscious buyers. And even better, they have priced the 42-inch model similar to competing 40-inch TVs.

One look at the spec-sheet and I was keen on getting my hands on the Redmi Earbuds 3 Pro. After all, how often do you get dual-driver true wireless (TWS) earphones, and that too with aptX Adaptive compliance under Rs. 3,000? Those are the features you generally find in wireless earphones upwards of Rs. 6,000, and not necessarily all of them. On top of that, a promise of close to 30 hours of battery backup and this pair of TWS earbuds from Xiaomi seems to tick all the right boxes.

A few days ago we reviewed a fitness band with a larger than usual screen. Continuing on the same theme, we now have a budget fitness watch with a large display. Meet the Realme Watch 2 Pro from the company's latest generation of fitness watches that were released not too long ago. Other than the display, this fitness watch offers a bunch of useful features like built-in GPS, good battery backup, SpO2 sensor and more.

Huawei has been a constant presence in the fitness wearables segment in India over the past several years. The Band 6 that we have for review today is the sixth iteration of their fitness band, and it's an interesting one. One thing I generally miss in fitness bands is a larger display. I know, it's a band and needs to be sleek, but Huawei has looked to address that issue here. The Huawei Band 6 slots right in between regular fitness bands and a fitness watch, courtesy of its larger than usual display.

32-inch smart TVs are generally targeted at price-sensitive buyers by most manufacturers. Full-HD resolution on a TV this size has become extremely rare these days. More often than not, you get a 768p panel (resolution of 1366x768 pixels) to keep the costs down.
