Q mobile M6 – The power you need

I fell in love with Pakistan’s biggest smartphone brand Q mobile ever since I got my hands on the NoirZ12 (reviewed earlier) and then moved on to the then best, Q mobile NoirZ14. Still using the later one and no complaints what so ever. If there’s anything that a smartphone and social media enthusiast craves for in Android smartphones, it has to be a long lasting battery and no one is understanding this need better than Q mobile. 

The new addition to Q mobile smartphones family is a power packed M6 Android smartphone which is equipped with the most powerful battery. With 5000mAh battery this phone is going to be a must have. How I wanted to get rid of carrying that bulky power bank everywhere. 

At the biggest bridal fashion week of Pakistan- Q mobile Bridal Couture Week 2017, the most stylish Pakistani smartphone brand Q mobile displayed Q mobile M6 for a first hand user experience. From celebrities to common people everyone was discussing the power of M6. Fashion captured through the lens of M6 looks even better. 

The smart finger print sensor makes it even more desirable. QMobile knows the pulse of smartphone users and with such advanced features their smartphones are going to be the super power in your hands.

Look at the specifications of Q mobile M6. Hard to beat price (M6 has been launched for Rs 29,500) with such powerful battery. I am so willing to get it now. 

Q Mobile M6 Specifications:

  • CPU: 2.0GHz Octa-Core Cortex-A53
  • Chipset: Mediatek Helio P10
  • OS: Android 6.0 MarshmallowSupported 
  • Networks: 2G, 3G, 4G LTE; Dual-SIM

Are you the one underestimating a Pakistani smartphone brand so far? Take my words, you’ll not be disappointed with the power of Q mobile Noir series as I have personally used it for over an year now and so looking forward to get my hands on the power of M6. 

QMobile NoirZ12 smartphone is worth buying? 

To be honest I wasn’t ready to switch from a Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime phone to Q mobile Noir series phones but apparently I did. The reason being high end specs of Noir Z series while keeping the price range under 25K. The temptation of moving from a 1GB RAM smartphone that hangs, can’t run snapchat etc was way too high and eventually I had to surrender. Got a beautiful rose gold colored handset of QMobile NoirZ12 for less than 23K (the same price for which I’ve bought my previous Samsung Selfie phone) few months back.

The stunning Q mobile Noir Z12 smartphone

Apparently I was tempted to buy this set because of its high end specs and price that no one else offers for such features. Did I regret? Its been 8 months now and I have no complaints so far. Here are the reasons to love my NoirZ12 phone.

RAM/ROM

The set comes with a 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM(expandable via SD card). Been using snapchat ever since I got this phone and the app never crashed(touch wood). Smooth Android experience so far. The only problem with SD card is that you have to sacrifice second SIM option as it allows either SIM 2 or SD card. I am not fond of double SIM phones so it doesn’t matter but it has been advertised as a dual SIM phone that’s why it is important to note that the option limits use of expandable memory. On the other hand 32GB internal memory is more than enough too. Do it’s a 50-50 kinda feature. Not to love or hate.

Camera

This is one thing that I am peculiar about in my smartphones. Q Mobile NoirZ12 has 13MP rear and 8MP front camera & it is kick ass one. You can click HDR images to panorama ones. The result is outstanding. Selfie camera is quite good too. 5/5 for the camera. You’ll love the results.

Battery life

NoirZ12 comes with a 3000mAH battery and it can last for a whole day while using Internet on it. This is another plus of this pretty set that it has a great battery life. To charge it faster, open extreme mode and you’ll save time on charging too.

Color and appearance

Rose gold color of NoirZ12 makes it stand out from other sets of the brand. Loved the sleek and thin look of it. My blogger friends were surprised that its not an iPhone lol. The rise gold color and finishing of the set makes it look a lot like iPhone. The hands free of the set comes in Rose gold color too. So fancy.

Downside :

The phone Heats up sometimes when it was new. After a month or so it stopped behaving like that. Thank God.

USB Charger is not universal(it is a bit wider & has a flat pin). You need to get your own charging cable unlike other smartphones which can be charged with any other smartphone’s cable.

Dual SIM card restricts the use of SD card.

I just loved this phone. It is the best one in this price range out there.

Independence Day Mega Celebrations at Dolmen Malls

Dolmen Mall, Pakistan’s first international standard mall, is famous for being at the forefront of every major national celebration. With every event, they have continued to raise the bar when it comes to family entertainment and shopping in Karachi.

As our Independence Day approaches, we see the city changing itself to represent the colours of Pakistan, and Dolmen did not stay behind in giving its visitors a flavour of patriotism. This year, their theme, ‘Dolmen loves Pakistan’, was weaved around the concept of #HamariPehchan aimed at giving people a chance to celebrate Pakistan’s identity. Spanning across all three malls, namely Dolmen Mall Clifton, Dolman Mall Tariq Road and Dolmen Mall Hyderi, the event kicked off on 12th of August 2016.

Dolmen Mall Clifton independence day celebrations

“Living in a time where there is so much uncertainty and negativity surrounding our identity as a nation, we wanted to celebrate the achievements and entertainment aspects of Pakistan which we are known for. These things are relatable to the older as well as the younger generation of this country and they need to be celebrated. This is what makes us proud as Pakistanis,” 

said Anum Nadeem, Marketing Head of the Dolmen Group at the event.

A weekend worth of activities were executed in all its patriotic glamour and glory. For this, the mall was draped in shades of greens and whites. The walkways saw magnificent replicas of the country’s monuments. From live murals of national heroes to specially dressed guards standing and saluting the customers, the entire mall gave off 14th August vibes. The main atrium was designed to take the mall-goers on a photographic journey through Pakistan and its rich culture. Adding to the desi feel, a dhaaba was set up by Chai Wala offering fresh parathas and chai for all those craving for a cup of tea, Pakistan’s undisputed favourite drink. Folk music and a special Azadi Bazaar selling flags, badges, and other patriotic merchandise set the right mood to the three-day event.

To mark the eve of Independence Day, a grandiose performance by Sounds of Kolachi dazzled the audience. The soulful music melted into the beautiful notes of our National Anthem at precisely 12 AM, amidst a shower of confetti while the guards raised the flag and saluted. The moment was breathtakingly beautiful.

On the same night, visitors at Dolmen Mall Tariq Road were enthralled to find Noori performing live and did not shy away from fully enjoying patriotic beats.

On the digital front, an instagram competition was hosted, allowing amateur photographers to showcase their talent. Top three photographs were selected and awarded with prizes. More prizes awaited all those who visited Dolmen wearing green. Shoppers and visitors were, thus, pleasantly surprised at various occasions.

As another successful event comes to an end, Dolmen stands tall and proud; the management determined to keep providing more quality events and celebrations to its visitors. Let’s wait to see what they have in store for the next event!

#PoliceAwamSaathSaath – Bridging the Gap

Police Awam Saath saath is an initiative by National Police Bureau of Pakistan, aiming to bridge the gap between the police and the public of Pakistan. I have been seeing this community growing and making its presence felt on social media in past few months. Police department has no such praises under their belts despite sacrificing lives and always being there to serve us(Awaam) . Of course there’s a reason behind such public behavior of not recognizing the good things about our police, perhaps the wrong doings overshadows the positive vibes often. 

Police Awam Saath saath Whatever the case maybe, I guess it is about time that awam and police know each other through easily accessible social media platforms and put the forum to a good use by sharing their experiences or stories.

I see people calling police wala on the road as Tulla or farmi anda out of disrespect because we have a perception that they’re all corrupt. ‘Signal torro, Chai paani do aur nikal lo’,  This is our mindset and needs overhauling too. The hindrance one faces to report a crime to the nearest police station and the fear of dealing with police is an important issue too. There are good people in the police force too and it’s about time that we share their stories, listen to the hard work that they’re doing an Dahi their families go through. Afterall, policemen are one of us and they’re there to serve us. No one should be above the law. 

Police awam saath saath forum can also be wisely used as a platform to voice your opinions and experiences regarding police of your area. If you have experienced something, whether good or bad, let people hear it. Share it to bridge the gap. Let the fear of dealing with police die. It is also indispensable to make it easier for public to access men in power. 

#PoliceKoJanain aur apnay faraiz ko bhi janain taakay aap apnay haqooq k liae larr sakain. #PoliceAwamSaathsaaath hongay to Pakistani society tarraqi karegi.

#MothersDay 2016 happenings on Pakistani social media

Mothers day has become a cyber gala of celebrations in past few years. Brands tend to come up with unique offers, contests and lots of prizes to engage their consumers.

What brand comes to your mind when you think of #MothersDay or moms? I came to think of Dalda instantly because of “Jahan mamta wahan dalda” aur “Tang Maan k hathon ka pyar” . It will be of great disappointment if these two brands haven’t come up with something unique this Mothers day and guess what? They have pretty decent mothers day campaigns which you shouldn’t miss participating.

Here are my picks from a lot of #MothersDay 2016 digital campaigns and product related activities so that you can try your luck too.

Mothers Of Pakistan

Social Media Community called Mothers of Pakistan has been formed to honor mothers, where people from all over Pakistan are requested to share a message in text/image/video form for their mothers to make them feel special.

The objective of this campaign is to pay a tribute to all the Mothers of Pakistan and honour the efforts they make for their children at each phase of life. Dalda Foods and TCS Sentiments has joined hands with this community by offering giveaways. Do participate by sharing a message for your mom with #MothersOfPakistan.

 

#TangMissedCall #FromMeToMom

Tang has a unique activity going on. The idea is to send personalized pre-recorded messages. All you have to do is give a missed call on Tang’s special number. You will then receive a call and following the instructions you can record a message for your mother.

On Mother’s Day your mother will receive a call from Tang in which your pre-recorded message will be played. How cool is that? Imagine your mom listening to your voice message while you’re in front of her? I am hoping there are more surprises for moms with this call. IYKWIM.

MediaMagick memes

I must say these are different from the usual mothers day happenings and coolest desi Mothers day campaign around. They’re also hosting a blog competition.
