We all know how Google likes to switch things up on their search home page with special themes for seasons and celebrations. They also like to get kids in on the fun, and last October kicked off their annual Doodle 4 Google art competition, asking students to create a doodle to tell the world “What makes me…me.” This time around, they added a little twist: for the first time in eight years of Doodle 4 Google, there were no restrictions on the medium or materials kids could use to create a doodle.

What’s the best cheap smartphone you have used?

Written by Josh Twin on .

For most of us, when you walk into an electronics shop, you first look all around the shop at all the cool gadgets on display, then finally zoom into what you’re interested in for that time. For example when you walk into a phone shop in your favourite mall or Mutaasa Kafeero, your attention will be drawn to the section with the flagship smartphones. If you aren’t in a hurry or if you are just curious, you will first check out the latest Samsung Note, the Huawei P8 or Mate, the iPhone 6 Plus, and maybe a tablet or two. That is regardless of whether you’re in the market for one of those or you’re actually looking for a device lower in the food chain!
