Confused over Camera or Processing power? Here is a list of 2017’s top 4 smartphones

So you’re planning to buy a smartphone? Looking for the best possible buys of 2017? You might be in luck then. This article gives you a brief idea about some of the edgiest mobile phones that this year has to offer. All because that your time is precious and so that you don’t have to face the same hassles the next time you go to the nearest mobile phone store. Few factors that matter before you select the best smartphone for yourself include your budget, features, the right size and the particular platform that best suits your needs.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge/ S7

The Samsung Galaxy S7 set is surely a very appealing device, however, when it comes to design, the S7 Edge outdoes it, taking the no.1 spot as one of the most desirable mobile phones around. Both of them combine performance with power, displays of Quad HD resolutions and other features, whereas the S7 edge separates itself from its rival with those edges. Their build match some of the best devices available, and the inclusion of the micro SD slot lends practicality to them. The S7 Edge has a bigger size that provides bigger battery space. Both are fast and slick that offer every inch of that flagship experience to its users coupled with a smart fingerprint scanning mechanism for that ultimate knockout punch. Also, the S8 as well as S8 Plus are expected to succeed them. Nonetheless, they will still remain two of the major top buys for this year. All said and done, these two mobile phones are still not for any and everybody. There are plenty of other options to choose from.

Google Pixel / Pixel XL

This time, Google comes firing on all cylinders with its Pixel and Pixel XL mobile devices. The only difference between them is the size of their screen with the other features; specs, experience and performance remaining the same. While the regular Pixel is packed with a Full HD display of 5 inches, the XL variant is a shade larger with 5.5 inches display of Quad HD. Both the Pixel phones have a sturdy build with a smooth and fast user experience. The camera quality is top notch and battery life, good, thus promising a supreme Android experience. However, few of the possible things to reconsider would be the lack of a micro SD slot, no waterproofing and obviously, the price that is set at a higher end. The headphone jack is 3.5 mm.

Apple iPhone 7 Plus / iPhone

Though these two phones do not offer the invariable design overhaul that we are used to by now, iPhone 7 Plus is packed with more features as compared to its counterpart; features that include a precision zoomed camera and digital bokeh effect. The newer iPhones are even more refined that way, with the removable headphone jack to fit in the stereo speakers, combined with waterproofing and better functional hidden antennas.

LG G6

With G6, LG has gone a notch higher than all its rivals, knocking the ball way out of the park. The display, performance and build of the device are at par with every other smartphone around the block. The lightweight customizable device software and dual camera add the necessary punch to it, making it extremely versatile. It is costlier than every other device that has come out of the same house; although the build and the camera are comparable to the Galaxy S7 and Pixel handsets, taking its performance into consideration, the Google and Samsung phones score high on the software and overall experience meter. Nevertheless, it is an excellent smartphone that deserves to be up there with the best in the world.

Accentuate your figure; how a corset can provide all the support you need

While everyone knows that, a corset can help you achieve that bodacious hourglass figure, most people are unaware of the many benefits wearing a corset can have. Previously, people attributed the cause of conditions such as tuberculosis and other such diseases to wearing a corset. However, these myths have since been debunked and disproved. Although the corsets worn by women in the 1800’s were uncomfortable and could lead to a few health risks, the corsets of today have been improved to eliminate these risks. Earlier women wore corsets as inner wear, the way you would wear a bra today. These corsets usually had a steel bone frame to support the bust and the torso, with lace to tie it together at the back. The problem arises when women regularly wear a corset that is too tight for them. Nowadays, there are a number of different types of corsets available, that provide support while also giving you that curvaceous shape that you are looking for. There are a number ways in which the corset can help you out and provide the support that you need. Here is a list of reasons why you should get yourself a corset, right now:

Offers support to your back and strengthens muscles:

Patients with back injuries and weak spines use a brace for lumbar support. Research conducted actually shows, that corsets have been used for medical purposes to provide support to the back, torso and in strengthening the muscles. So go get yourself a corset, and look gorgeous while you support your back. Instead of having to wear, a bulky uncomfortable brace underneath your clothes, consult your doctor and find a corset that provides you with the support you need.

Helps you make a fashion statement:

Along with accentuating the figure, wearing a corset on the outside, help you make a bold style statement. The corset has helped numerous women, giving them the confidence they need to be comfortable with their bodies. You can wear a trendy corset on the outside and flaunt those sexy curves. From enabling you to fit into that bootylicious, figure-hugging dress to emphasizing your voluptuous shape in your wedding dress, wearing a corset underneath is just as stylish and helpful.

Assists your posture:

Working at an office requires long hours of sitting in front of the computer, cooking and doing household chores involves a lot of heavy lifting. If you have bad posture, this can cause you to develop backaches. Wearing a corset actually helps to keep your back upright and helps you avoid these problems. The corsets that have a steel bone frame are especially helpful in aiding your posture. You can find corsets and shape slimmers at Marks and Spencer and other lingerie shops that help to accentuate your figure while assisting with posture.

Support for the bustier woman:

When you have a big bust, it is tough to find a bra that provides enough support. Women with a heavy bust can try wearing an overbust corset that provides you with comfort as well as the support you need. Along with providing support, a corset also helps those women who are less-endowed, if you are looking for that push-up bra effect.

Helps you slim down a few inches from your waist within minutes:

You can find a waist minimizer or a waist slimmer of your size, which allows you to wear that sexy dress you’ve just bought. A waist slimmer or a waist shaper is a body-shaping corset that cinches the waistline and compresses the core. This helps accentuate your figure, giving you a flattering silhouette. Made of latex or cotton material, it is very comfortable and can be worn under your garments for an extended period. There are comfortable and effective waist or thigh-slimmers available at stores like Marks & Spencer (lingerie) or you can try at M&W as well.

Cannot fit all your essentials into your travel bag? Here’s a complete guide to buying the perfect travel sack that will marquee your travelogue!

A journey spanning over a hundred miles begins with the most trusted travel sack. Probably, the most important part of your journey is to pack, both light and smart. Packing everything you think you will need a single piece of luggage is no light weather. For that, the bag will need to have other features such as wheels and lock zippers.

How will you travel?

Will you need connecting flights to reach your destination or a few layovers, for that matter? Does your trip also involve bus/train rides? A light carry bag (or the wheeled ones) could just be your best bet should you consider intermediate transportation.

The amount of gear and the type of luggage will surely vary with the type of traveler in you. If a large part of your travel concerns sitting inside the premium suite at a deluxe hotel and appreciating the Thames, you should go for the rolled luggage, whereas if your camping equipment is what you swear by, a lightweight backpack is your calling.

Bring some color into the bedroom

Acropolis Kolkata

While many women shirk away from getting bright colors for their lingerie collection, you must have some interesting colors in your underwear drawer. While whites, blacks and skin tones have the advantage of being wearable under everything, the occasional red or neon green is also to be appreciated. When you’re picking out lacy lingerie for a steamy night out, it goes without saying that you’ll either be wearing something that won’t show off your bra colors through it, or something that intentionally flashes a little strap or lace. So don’t be afraid to go for a statement-making bright color that’ll just drive him crazy.

Teddies, garters and more

Don’t be afraid to mix up your lingerie drawer with different kinds of innerwear. Stockings can be an elegant hosiery choice to go with a short dress and what better to spice up the whole outfit than a sexy garter belt? You can spice up your summer nights with a babydoll teddy to substitute your pajamas once in a while. Don’t suffer from the misconception that practical innerwear can’t be sexy too. Marks and Spencer’s has tummy control high-waist panties that are made of silk and are invisible under your tight jeans. M&S stocks bustiers that make your dress look crease-free and are embellished with lace at the edges, making you feel like a goddess.

Hence, when it comes to showering them with your love, you have to ensure that you get the best for them. Listed below are six thoughtful gifts that you can pamper your grandparents with:

A movie that they love

There is always someone in everybody’s life that sets the epitome of being the perfect couple. In many cases, it may be your grandparents. Their unquestionable bond of love is something that you have always witnessed in your growing up years. Hence, taking them out for a movie date can be an ideal gift on your behalf. A hopelessly romantic Nicholas Sparks movie or a classic would fit the bill perfectly for the romantic couple. If your grandparents are lovers of fantasy, you can also opt for the latest Pirates of the Caribbean series. Cinepolis offers the experience of reclining and capacious seats that will surely make them comfortable to enjoy the movie. Make sure that there is a popcorn bucket for munching!

Spa treatment

Remember as a kid, on your weekends when you were given the best oil massage by your loving grandma? Hence it goes without saying that taking your grandparents out for a relaxing and rejuvenating spa treatment could be a nice thoughtful gift. A body spa at The Thai Spa or a hair spa at Eyecatchers can refresh their body, mind and soul.

Lunch Date

Taking your grandparents out on a lunch date can be a lot of fun. You can spend time together, listening to the crazy stories involving your parents and reminisce about your childhood days. There are multiple fine dining options like Chili’s, Acropolis and Asia Kitchen. A complete Chinese platter or an authentic continental dish accompanied by a glass of vintage wine can be the ultimate lunch date that you can have. Although it probably would be you who has to eat the most, as grandparents always tend to have a notion that their grandchildren never eat enough but the time that you spend together will be remembered and cherished forever.    

A step towards good health

Health is a wealth that should be in everyone’s possession. With the advancement of age, taking care of your health becomes much more important. Encourage your grandparents to go for regular walks. The best way to convince them is to gift them a pair of walking shoes. This way, they will not say no to you and at the same time, they will get to spend some quality time together every day on their daily walks. When it comes to comfort, Adidas and Puma are the best places to go to.

Capture and Frame Moments

A happy family picture portraying the bond of togetherness, framed in an equally appealing photo frame is a gift that will be admired and appreciated by your grandparents all their lives. Gift shops like Fondu Basket and Presto have very unique and incredible designs that you can choose from. After all, marvelous pictures do deserve a decorous frame.

Nothing works best than a gift with a personalized touch. Your grandparents are sure to love such things. It can be a key chain with a family picture, a coffee mug depicting their favorite quote, or a cushion bearing a meaningful message. You can also customize a t-shirt with their names or pictures that they can flaunt in their future selfies when holidaying.
