Roughly eight months on from X70 Pro+, which itself came just six months after the one before it, Vivo is back with another flagship phone. Gadgets 360 senior reviewers Sheldon Pinto and Aditya Shenoy join host Akhil Arora to discuss the Vivo X80 series. Read: Vivo X80 hands-on: promising premium all-rounder We talk about Vivo’s attempts to simplify the new naming convention — this time, we have a Vivo X80 at Rs. 55,000, and a X80 Pro at Rs. 80,000 — and the resulting confusion it creates. We delve into what the two phones offer, be it their triple and quad rear camera setups, the high refresh rates displays on par with Apple and Samsung, or that humongous camera module on the back. Read: Vivo X80 Pro hands-on: worthy upgrade? Along the way, we touch upon how Samsung is pushing the industry to do better with their Android update promises, and why the likes of Vivo need to stop showing off a “cool” new feature with every launch.

New phones, new watch, new wireless earbuds, and even a new tablet. Is Google getting serious about hardware? Gadgets 360 executive editor Jamshed Avari and deputy reviews editor Roydon Cerejo join host Akhil Arora to discuss the best of Google I/O 2022. The only bit actually confirmed for India is the Pixel 6a, a “budget” phone in the US that will likely end up around Rs. 40,000 or more in India. It’s not due before August, so who knows what that segment — already very competitive — will look like by then. With the Pixel Watch, Google finally enters wearables and puts its Fitbit acquisition to good use. No price on that though. The Pixels Buds Pro do have a price, and they seem to be going up against the AirPods Pro and others of its ilk. Google also teased a Pixel Tablet for 2023, and the next generation of its flagship phones — the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro — expected in late 2022.

Alexa, what’s the latest episode of the Orbital podcast about? Amazon India’s Alexa chief Dilip R.S. and Gadgets 360’s in-house Alexa expert Ali Pardiwala join host Akhil Arora to discuss Alexa’s growth in India. The biggest challenge for any voice assistant is to make it understand its users. For one, Alexa must adapt to “Indian English” words and our varied accents. On top of that, it must also navigate the fact that we frequently use two (or more) languages in the same sentence. Still, Amazon Echo devices have been bought in 85 percent of pin codes in India, Dilip notes. Of course, it’s another matter how useful they are — and how many are actively being used. For more such trends, tune into the episode. We also touch upon how Amazon pushes to intergrate Alexa into non-Amazon devices and platforms, and how thanks to Alexa, voice is the first mode of interaction with the Internet for some.

Gadgets 360 deputy reviews editor Roydon Cerejo and senior reviewer Sheldon Pinto join host Akhil Arora to discuss the new Xiaomi flagship smartphone. The 12 Pro boasts similar hardware to phones in its range, and it doesn’t have anything to set itself apart. Xiaomi has polished the look and feel though, and the 12 Pro feels like a premium device.

A Dolby Vision display that can go down to 1Hz refresh rate, rear cameras with wider aperture than you normally see, quad speakers with Dolby Atmos, and 120W fast charging that’s in line what’s currently out there.

India’s smartwatch market is growing, but that depends on how you look at it. Gadgets 360 senior reviewers Ali Pardiwala and Aditya Shenoy, and IDC India research director Navkendar Singh join host Akhil Arora to talk about that and more. As with all things tech, India remains a cost-sensitive market, with average selling price in fact going down in recent years, Singh tells us. Low-cost smartwatches have taken over from fitness bands (while the premium segment struggles). That’s because these ‘basic’ watches — Rs. 4,000 or less — are cramming in a lot of features, though they naturally don’t naturally fare well in accuracy. But does the Indian consumer care? Read: The best smartwatches to buy in India For those who do, you’re going to have to pay a lot — with premium watches from Apple and Samsung coming in at 5–10 times the price.
