    Crash Team Racing plays and feels like a time-capsule back to the early 2000s. And with local and online co-op and a plethora of game modes like battle mode and challenge modes, Nitro-Fueled is a must-try for anyone looking for a fun kart-racer to try out.
  • Redmi Note 8 Pro

    The Redmi Note 8 Pro is one of the last entries in the mid-tier smartphone category for 2019. And, it’s amazing that as 2019 draws to a close, a device like the Redmi Note 8 Pro can exist– a 64MP primary sensor, a 4500mAh battery that will last you throughout the day, a great CPU and GPU with which you can play the most demanding games and perform all your tasks, a serviceable screen, 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM– all for the price of BDT 27,999.
  • VIVO V17 Pro

    The successor to the successful V15 Pro pulls out all the stops in the camera department, quietly making a category for itself in the smartphone game. Unlike the OnePlus 7 or K20 Pro, which are approximately BDT 10,000/- more than the V17 Pro, vivo’s answer to this corner of the market is similar to how Google approached the flagship game – killer cameras.
