Things to consider while buying a refrigerator

27th February 2021
"Buying refrigerators isn't a piece of cake. From storage capacity to other features everything must be considered,"

Refrigerators, one of the essentials for every kitchen, be it for storing your veggies and eggs or for storing your dairy products or any leftovers. As it stores every ingredient in your dish and every food you cook, its purchase should be done considering all the factors. Besides your health, refrigerators are bought to last a longer period; so, several factors should be considered. Here we show you some of the most important things to consider while buying a refrigerator.

Energy star

Who knew you could benefit yourself and the environment at the same time? The refrigerators with ENERGY STAR mean low prices, low energy consumption, and a low hindrance to the environment without having to compromise or reducing your satisfaction. So, try considering the purchase of ENERGY-certified refrigerators.

Storage capacity

First off, know the space available for your refrigerator. Don't forget to measure the dimensions of your old unit, in case of replacement, or the dimensions of the space that you allocate for your refrigerators. Don't forget to measure the counter depth and entry points as well. Besides the space capacity, the storage capacity of the refrigerator itself is also essential. So, know the required storage capacity for your refrigerators.

Style

The refrigerator you buy today lasts for a long time; so, you might not want to get bored and frustrated with the designs and features in the near future. Some refrigerators come with top freezer, some with bottom freezer, side-by-side, and some with french door; so, make your choice considering your requirements.

Freezer

The freezer may be at the top, bottom, or at the side. Try to stick with the top-mounted freezer refrigerators as far as possible unless If you essentially need others. Refrigerators with top-mounted freezers comparatively use less energy ( less than a 60-watt light bulb). Also, the refrigerators with top-mounted freezers are cheaper than others. 

Size and Compatibility

The size of refrigerators should be considered while buying a refrigerator. The greater the size, the higher the energy consumption; but you don't want to consume high energy unnecessarily, do you? Normally, 16-20 cubic feet refrigerators are best for your kitchen, there's no need to go higher than that.

Features most essential for you

Most of us, go for the fanciest design and features if we have an abundant budget and compromise in case of a tight budget. Rather than compromising or over fancying, go for the refrigerators that actually fulfill your need and has features that are required. Even the budget refrigerators come in different variants with different specifications; so, examine and ensure the features you require thoroughly before buying.

Essential compartments

Not all refrigerators have the same features and nor do they all have the same compartments. Some refrigerators may not have dedicated compartments for meat or dairy or cheese, and some may not have autofill water pitcher and so on. If you require such dedicated compartments and features, don't forget to look out for them.

LG’S ICONIC INSTAVIEW REFRIGERATOR HITS SALES MILESTONE OF ONE MILLION UNITS WORLDWIDE

26th February 2021
"LG Electronics’ premium InstaView Door-in-Door™ refrigerator hit a milestone this month when it reached one million in sales worldwide since its introduction in 2016."

LG Electronics’ premium InstaView Door-in-Door™ refrigerator hit a milestone this month when it reached one million in sales worldwide since its introduction in 2016. With an average of more than 700 units sold every day, this large-capacity refrigerator from LG is now available in approximately 150 countries in six continents.

LG Electronics’ premium InstaView Door-in-Door™ refrigerator is designed to deliver an elevated culinary lifestyle, striking the perfect balance between form and function. It boasts stylish aesthetics and practical features that have won recognition from some of the world’s most prestigious design awards such as Red Dot Design Award and iF Design Award.

“This milestone is a testament to LG’s ability to develop differentiated, high-quality products that have propelled us to the top of the ranks in many home appliance categories,” said Dan Song, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “Today’s appliances include as much technology as a computer or smartphone and our customers have extremely high expectations of them. Our advanced technology and customer-first approach is resonating with consumers who have made InstaView one of the fastest selling refrigerator brands as long as refrigerators have existed.”

LG InstaView gets its name from the refrigerator’s chameleon-like panel in the door that can be transformed into a transparent window with just two knocks on the glass. This allows users to see what’s inside without opening the door, reducing cold air loss. Along with InstaView, Door-in-Door™ provides easy access to favorite drinks and snacks while minimizing exposure of the main refrigerator compartment to room temperature air, helping to decrease cold air loss by more than 41 percent.*

To satisfy growing global demand of InstaView refrigerators, LG has added the convenience-enhancing feature to more refrigerators in its lineup, including French-Door and Side-by-Side, among others. What’s more, the popular InstaView technology can now be found in other LG appliances such as the LG SIGNATURE Wine Cellar and ThinQ™ Range.

LG’s never-ending quest to add value to its refrigerators through useful innovations has led to the development of more technologies designed to create a more efficient and more pleasant culinary life. For example, Smart Care+ utilizes LG ThinQ™ AI to keep food fresh longer, lower energy costs and deliver a more personalized service. By analyzing data collected over several weeks, the intelligent appliance can detect usage patterns allowing it to lower its temperature prior to times of heavy use in order to better maintain its set target temperature. Smart Care+ leverages the same data to reduce energy waste, automatically putting the refrigerator in Save Mode during periods of infrequent usage. And with Craft Ice™, dinner hosts can pretend to be experienced bartenders, mixing the perfect drinks with round ice to liven up any cocktail.

Things to look out for when buying a gaming smartphone

27th February 2021
"it is important to know what things in a phone make it stand out among the others and make it a worthy gaming phone."

As more and more people are inching towards mobile games such as PUBG Mobile, Fortnite, COD Mobile, it is important to know what things in a phone make it stand out among the others and make it a worthy gaming phone. Here are the things which phone should have to give its user the best gaming experience :

Performance

This is probably the most important thing which separates a normal phone and a gaming phone. The SoC (System on Chip) is the thing that runs your games and your day to day apps. The SoC comprises CPU, GPU, and many such components. The better the SoC the better the phone will perform in the games. Having a 4GB ram is enough. Currently, the best SoC which is offered by Qualcomm is Snapdragon 865+(launched 2 months ago). Snapdragon 855 is more widely available. 

Screen

This is the thing you look the most while gaming and if it's not a good one, it'll ruin your gaming experience. A good screen comprises of 3 things:

Screen resolution: Gaming at high resolution will give you an edge over your opponent. 1080p is perfect as going beyond it will barely give you any advantage as human eyes will hardly notice a difference between 1080p and higher resolution. 

Type of screen: Having a phone with AMOLED display will enhance your gaming experience as it provides better contrast and vibrant colors compared to an LCD panel. Also, AMOLED panels are more efficient than LCD panels. Having AMOLED will also give you a better content consumption experience

Screen refresh rate: Higher refresh rate screens will provide smoother gameplay. The normal phones have a refresh rate of 60Hz. Currently, 90Hz has become common among devices and will smoothen your gameplay by a lot. But some devices even offer 120Hz which will enhance your experience even more. 

Cooling system

Gaming is a very intense and resource-heavy task for a device, which in return produces a lot of heat. Heat and electronics don't go well together. Also, a gamer holds the device for an extended period of time. So having a device that has a better cooling solution will help in performance and will also help the person holding the device. Many devices offer some sort of liquid cooling and a small number of devices even offer a fan!

Battery + Fast charging

Having a device with a large battery will significantly extend your gaming session. A device with a 5000 mAh battery is more than enough for a gaming session of about 4 hours+. A device offering fast charging will greatly reduce the time between your gaming sessions. Some devices nowadays even offer devices with 6000 mAh battery and blazing-fast 30 W charging
