What inspired you to get into the tech business?

Jun 18, 8:10AM EDT0

Hello, i started tech blogging when i was 17. I was always a tech guy. Every new phone launch made me excited and i remember getting every new phone from the phone king of that time NOKIA. iPhone launch was a turning point for not only the tech industry but for me too. I knew that this is the phone which will change the tech industry and it did that too. So you can say the launch of the very first iphone inspired me to get into the tech bussiness.

Where did you study for your MD?

Jun 17, 10:23PM EDT0

Hello I did my MBBS From Xinjiang Medical University, China. It was really a wonderful experience studying there.

What is the brst smartwatch to buy?

Jun 17, 7:25PM EDT0

Hello, unfortunately smartwatches are still not widely used as expected. I use an Apple Watch and for me this is the best smartwatch in the market.

You can also look out for the Huawei watch running Android Wear. Samsung Gear S2/S3 running Tizen is also one of the best smartwatches with buttery smooth user experience and useful features. 

Smartwatches are mostly the same with limited functionality. All i do with my Apple watch is to check notifications without taking out my iPhone.

If you own an iPhone go for an Apple watch eyes closed. If you own an Android phone specially from Samsung go for Gear S2 or S3 rather than a smartwatch running Android Wear.

GoPro Hero 5 all the way for me :)

Jun 17, 5:23PM EDT0

Samsung, iphone, or?

Jun 17, 2:45PM EDT0

Hello, now that is a very good question. Apple and Samsung both are tech giants. When i have to choose between the two, it comes down to my choice of OS.

Starting with Apple, iPhones are classy with premium built quality. The software/hardware combo from Apple is truly a winner. iOS is buttery smooth with loads of quality apps. iOS and iPhones are all about the user experience. The only downside for me is the lack of customization options in iOS and we are forced to use our phones  the way Apple wants us to. 

I feel like Apple is catching up with Samsung in terms of new features. iPhones still don't support wireless charging, Quad HD screen, heart rate sensor, iris scanner and few other fun to use features which are present in Samsung flagship phones. 

On the other hand Samsung phones are powered by Android (some are powered by Tizen). Android phones used to be laggy and buggy but things have changed a lot. Gone are the days when you used to reset your Android phones now and then for a smooth user experience. 

The biggest plus for Android phones is the ability to customize your phone. Android apps are now as good as their iOS counterparts and some are even better due to an open nature of Android.

Samsung phones now have premium looks too with the use of metal and glass in their flagship devices. You will find the best hardware in Samsung flagship phones with really useful features like iris scanner, face face unlock, wireless charging, IP68 Water Resistant Rating and much more. The user experience is smooth too with their new Samsung Experience (previously known as TouchWiz). 

LG,HTC, Sony are good too but nothing beats Samsung and Apple. 

I use an iPhone 7 and Galaxy S8, but i rely more on my iPhone.
