The Saregama Carvaan series has caught the attention of music lovers since it entered the market. The core strength of Saregama Carvaan is the huge collection of preloaded music. Non tech-savvy people are among the top buyers of Saregama’s products. In this series, a few days back Saregama launched a new product for small kids. Recently we got this Saregama Carvaan Mini Kids music player for review. This music player is specially designed for the under age kids.

The most enticing things of this music player are its design and the collection of preloaded rhymes, stories and other informative content. In the first look, the Carvaan Mini Kids looks very appealing and soothing for your eyes. As it has been designed for small kids, the color combination is very satisfying. Moreover, the material which is used to make this product is quite soft and smooth so it will not hurt the kids. This music player is easy to access and works without the internet connection so it is quite a good thing about this device.

Design, Built Quality and Portability

The design of Saregama Carvaan Mini Kids is very impressive and appealing. The music player is compact and lightweight thereby it can be easily carried anywhere. The total weight of this audio player is approximately 250 gms. The built quality of the audio player is really good as brand has taken topmost care while manufacturing this product. Overall, the audio player has a good design and built quality that make it a perfect choice for kids.

The audio player has dedicated buttons for each mode like Rhymes, Stories, Learning and Mantra.

Apart from these buttons, there are several other buttons as well on the top that can help users in managing the music. These buttons include, Power, play/pause, next/previous, volume controls and loop.

At the back side of the audio player, there is an LED light indicator, a Type-C charging port and a dedicated slot for Aux. Users can play their own collection of music by connecting other devices through the given USB port. Furthermore, next to the USB port, there is an option given to RESET the device.

If you look at the right side of the device, you will find a 3.5 mm headphone jack with which you can listen your favourite stories or mantra privately. And a bluetooth button is also there next to the headphone jack so you can connect your tablet or smartphone with this device. The model which we reviewed was of baby Blue color.

Features, Usage and performance

Saregama Carvaan Mini Kids has a large playlist which includes Rhymes, Stories, Learning content and mythological Mantras. The four buttons represent the particular mode. The first mode is for Rhymes, it is a collection of 80 preloaded classic Hindi and English rhymes that can help your kid learn the new things in a very simple way. The buttons are easy to press and you don’t need to put extra efforts. The loud and smooth audio suits to ears.

The next mode is for Stories where 300+ Hindi and English preloaded stories can be accessed. Some of the stories include Panchtantra, fairy Tales, Akbar Birbal, Moral stories and Mythological stories. The big and curated collection of stories fascinate even the old aged people and they can enjoy these stories along with their grandchildren. This mode is one of the best part of this audio player and such nice informative stories not even boost the knowledge of children but also improve their moral values as well.

Third mode is for Learning, You can let your child learn any fun learning songs out of 15 preloaded songs that cover several topics based on Numbers, Alphabets, Tables, Phonetics and more.

The last mode is Mantra which lets your child learn some devotional mantras. These mantras create a positive environment and allow you to learn something new. The mantras can be listened by anyone irrespective of the age. The audio player has a collection of over 30 preloaded mantras.

During the review, we listened to lots of stories, mantras and rhymes in order to evaluate its performance and the collection. After hours of usage, we were truly impressed with its performance. The audio quality is awesome and we did not observe any glitch throughout the review hours. The audio player is easy to use and you can leave it to your child for changing the modes, switching to the next or previous story/rhyme/mantra etc. Saregama Mini Kids is a complete package for your child’s educational and playtime needs. You can full charge this device in upto 2 hours and it can give upto 5 hours of battery backup. During our review, we got around 3-4 hours of backup but it all depends on the usage.

Price and availability

Saregama Carvaan Mini Kids is priced at Rs. 2,990 and comes with 6 months warranty.

Telecom Today Verdict

Saregama Carvaan Mini Kids is one of the best medium to make your child learn in an easy way. It is a complete package of good informative content that allows you to teach your kid. The USP of this audio player is the preloaded content library and good design. Moreover, you do not need an internet connection to operate this device and it is easy to use so no extra efforts required to operate it. It is good for the basic education for the children aged between 2-10 years.

Product Review: AVITA Essential

Avatar

AVITA recently launched its latest budget-friendly laptop AVITA Essental in India. We received this laptop for review so let’s check out what this laptop has to offer.

AVITA Essential Laptop Design

AVITA Essential is a quite modern and stylish laptop like the other models being offered by AVITA. The laptop seems to be an attention driver as its design and texture is really unique. The laptop comes in a cloth texture design and has a plastic body so it is slightly lightweight. Its actual weight is 1.37 Kgs which is not so heavy and allows you to carry it easily anywhere. However, the AVITA Essential is a budget-friendly laptop but due to its slim and unique design, it will give you premium laptop feel.

Apart from its design, there is nothing to see except the connectivity ports that are given on the backside of the laptop. It is to make this laptop free from tangled wires on the left and right sides. AVITA Essential laptop has one jack to power the laptop, 2 USB 3.0 Type-A ports, one full-size HDMI port, a microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. There are two 0.8W speakers underneath the laptop which are provided on either side to make a balance for a good audio output.

Keyboard for comfortable Typing

AVITA Essential laptop comes with a big keyboard which allows you more comfort while typing. The typing speed gets enhanced with a full-size keyboard and makes the typing experience even better. The keys of the laptop are designed in a way to provide perfect gripping. Apart from it, the touchpad of the laptop is a little bigger than the usual size.

Anti-Glare Display with Narrow Bezels

Today most of the budget category laptops don’t come with a narrow bezel display and carry the conventional display with thick bezels. But AVITA has gone an extra mile to provide a great viewing experience to its users by bringing a laptop with 4mm thin bezels. This is an anti-glare display so it doesn’t fend-off the quality of the content when we watch anything from side angles. Also, the display has 1920 x 1080 resolution to support HD content. However, the screen is not so much brighter and vibrant which disappoints to an extent.

The 2MP webcam has been given near the keyboard because of the narrow bezels. This angle is a little disappointing because it might not show the face correctly and you will have a bit of disappointment while being in a virtual meeting or doing video chat.

AVITA Essential Specifications and Performance

The laptop falls under the budget category but it doesn’t make any impact on its performance as the laptop is packed with some good features. AVITA Essential comes with an Intel Celeron N4020 processor. Also, the laptop has Intel UHD graphics inside so it will let you have a smooth user experience. AVITA Essential comes with a 3200mAh battery and AVITA commits upto 6 hours of backup. During our review, we got around 2-3 hours of battery support which is not so bad. The laptop runs on Windows 10 Home for a smooth and secure user experience.

As far as storage is concerned, AVITA Essential has something great to offer. The laptop comes with 4G DDR4 RAM and 256GB M.2 SSD. Due to the inbuilt SSD, the performance of the laptop has got a boost and we don’t see any lagging issues on the device. Moreover, the boot time of the laptop is nearly 10 seconds which is great.

AVITA Essential Price

MRP of AVITA Essential is INR 27,790 and it is available in three color variants, Matt White, Matt Black, and Concrete Grey. Pricing may differ depending on purchase platform.  

Telecom Today Verdict

AVITA has done a quite good job as AVITA Essential is really a nice laptop under budget. It is one of the ideal laptops for budget-conscious consumers who don’t want to spend much and want good features. The design of the laptop is really outstanding and it won’t let you feel that it is a budget category laptop. Also, the performance is good according to the features given on the laptop. People who are working from home and students who are learning from home can once consider this laptop for their daily work.

Product Review: Kingston Canvas Go! Plus SDCG3 MicroSD Card

Product Review: AVITA Essential

Kingston recently upgraded its Canvas portfolio of SD cards with the launch of its new Canvas Go! Plus microSD cards. The Canvas Go Plus series offers storage capacities starting from 64GB and goes up to 512GB. We received the 256GB variant microSD cards for review. The microSD card comes along with an optional SD adapter. We tested the canvas series storage product on various parameters during the review. Read below the complete and detailed review:

As per Kingston, the Canvas Go Plus memory card support blazing fast read/write speeds up to 170/90MB/s. These storage products can help you shoot 4K UHD videos and high-quality pictures with ease. These memory cards are ideal for those who love to shoot on DSLR/GoPro cameras for excellent pictures and videos. Additionally, Kingston stated that Canvas Go Plus memory cards are waterproof, temperature proof, shock and vibration proof and X-ray proof. So we were quite happy with the review of this product from Kingston. 

Performance

Although, the company says that it can deliver 170/90MB/s read and write speed, but we wanted to be assured from our end. So we went through a speed test for its read and write speed. First, we checked its write speed which generally means that we transferred a 4GB file from our Lenovo AIO PC to the Canvas Go! Plus MicroSD card. The data file included high-quality pictures, MP3 files, MP4 files, ZIP files, some word documents and etc. The memory product recorded data transfer speed upto 82.5MB/s. Such write speed is considered good and it can save your time while being in an urgency to copy your data from any device to the SD cards. 

After checking its write speed, we moved ahead to check the read speed. The read speed means transferring the data from the storage device to your local device. We transferred that 4GB data file from the Canvas Go! Plus memory card to our Lenovo AIO PC. The read speed was also commendable as the memory card recorded 158.2MB/s speed. 

The read/write speed of the Canvas Go! Plus MicroSD card is amazing and there is one more good news for those who are looking to buy the Canvas Go! Plus device. The memory card comes with a lifetime warranty which means you do not have to worry about its quality. Kingston has shown a commitment to the quality of its product by offering a lifetime warranty. 

As the microSD card is capable of shooting the 4K videos, we used the memory card for shooting videos in our DSLR camera. The overall experience while shooting the videos and clicking the pictures was truly overwhelming. We can say that this device is good for professional photographers/videographers.

Price & Availability  

The Kingston Canvas Go! Plus microSD Card is priced at INR 4600 and available across online platforms. 

Telecom Today Verdict 

The Canvas Go! Plus microSD card from Kingston is really a great offering and it is good for today’s content creators who work on big storage files. Data transfer used to be a tough task but with the Canvas Go! Plus storage, it is no more a challenge as per our own experience. The data transfer speed which we experienced was really great. Moreover, its compatibility is also noticeable. The memory card worked well with our DSLR and we did not face any issue while shooting the videos or while copying the videos/pictures from the SD card to our PC. This Canvas series is aimed at professionals who can boost their performance. We find Canvas Go! Plus MicroSD worthy in our review and we give it 4 stars out of 5.
