Why is it good to buy an Android One phone?

I bought a Samsung Galaxy smartphone six years back when I got my first Government job. That was my first smartphone. But it turned out to be the biggest disappointment after spending Rs 11,000. My colleagues who bought Micromax and Celkon smartphones at the same time for just half the price of my Samsung phone were the happier lot. My Samsung Galaxy gave me a lot of troubles compared to the cheapest phones bought by my friends. Frankly, I could not find out any reasons as I was having less technical knowledge than I am holding now.

After a while, I have taken up another Government job in my native district where I am presently working. I started hating my Samsung more now. My hatred towards it had grown so huge that I decided to buy another phone. So now, I don't want to waste my money on some high-end phones which give me a lot of headaches. So, I decided to buy a Micromax Fire 2 on Amazon at Rs 6000. Surprisingly the new phone had never given me trouble. It worked like anything. I felt very happy but I wanted to find reasons for Samsung's failure. At last, I found reasons behind the efficient working of my Micromax phone. According to a tech-geek from Quora forum, the Samsung does not use the android as it is given by Google but it tweaks with it. It wantonly allows bloatware and adware in order to make the profit. Automatically the phone's performance falls. On the other hand, Micromax always uses stock android as it is given by Google. It never makes any alterations to it. That's why the performance of the Micromax phone was good.


But, what is android One?

Android One is the software OS originally intended for cheap smartphones aimed at encouraging the spread of smartphones to the masses. It gives the users stock Android experience and hardly falters on any scale. Further, Android One is regularly updated and upgraded by Google and security dispatches are dispatched on monthly basis. That's why Android One turned out to be the safest and secure software in the world. According to the agreement between Google and the manufacturers, the later will have nothing to do with the software on the phone. The just provide the specified hardware. Now, I am using android One phone and very much impressed by it, and this is the reason why I am writing this article.



Why not make android One your next phone?

Why I am a free-thinker

A free-thinker is the one who doesn't accept any theory without sufficient evidence. I have no doubt in calling myself a free-thinker. I am very happy to say I have freed my thought from religious or any other sectarian bias since a very young age ( at 16 ).
We must always understand the World as it is not as we want it to be. Our opinions should always be formed on the basis of reason and empirical evidence, not on authority, tradition or dogma. Besides, science has become a big help to the human race in the objective understanding of the World. So, it can only form a solid foundation for our knowledge.
I believe the matter is the fundamental substance in nature and everything including our thoughts and emotions are the effects of the matter. Nothing other than matter (and its different forms) exist in the Universe. Our thoughts and emotions have physical basis as they are the functions of our brain. 
Human beings are essentially rational but everywhere they are chained by do…

Market strategy until the next General Elections

There is some weakness apparently visible in the markets now. But, don't fear! It's quite common to find the volatility as this is an election year. And nobody knows when Modi announces the elections. 
Let's assume next General Elections are ten months away. How can we formulate our market strategy these ten months? I hope you are following at least ten stocks at a time. Always buy any of these stocks if they dive more than expected. If you are a salaried person, you can buy small amounts of stocks on every dip depending upon the availability of cash. This is the main point of our strategy. Don't sell any stock these ten months. 
You may ask me when to sell a stock. The best time to sell is after the new government takes over the reins. The market will be buoyant then. It will certainly make the northward movement. So, remember the right time to buy is during the election year. And the right time to sell is during the first two years of the new government.
