iPhone Xs, Xs Max & Xr Launch review

I am confused where to start, I am not even focusing on Apple Watch as the product is out of budget range and I’m not mostly into workouts or outdoor activities. So, coming to the iPhone launch, I was expecting something unique or at-least some new innovations which were not leaked in online, but to my surprise every announcement was predictable and analysts released all those even before the event. To be honest I felt really sleepy during the entire event and one moment they shook me up was the pricing of three iPhones, it was unbelievable. Coming to each product overview, first one was iPhone Xs 

  • Most android users’ comment was that the phone was replica of last years' iPhone X and other than new color option nothing has changed 
  • Devotees might raise question about A12 Bionic processor, for all those devotees making a note of it, the last year processor was already a beast 
  • Dual sim support to Xs was actually stunning, as I was expecting the support would be available only to lower spec phone 
  • Again, the iPhone X camera was already creating stunning images than competitors and hope it would be continued this year as well. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”

12. Anxious days for my salary revision

After a year long’s hard work at my new company and ratings from my manager, I was anxiously waiting for my salary revision. During last year’s rating, I was awarded 3rd rating as I have joined this company very late and was not eligible for the salary hike. Even though I was not eligible for the previous years’ salary revisions, I got negligible few percentages hike and it didn’t impact much on my expectation. However, for this year’s salary revision process, I was awarded 1st rating and even hoped for a promotion. I knew back of my head that promotion was a long shot and it isn’t happening anytime soon. As expected promotion was not communicated, however the salary revision was delayed by a month and still there were no proper clarity on the expected hike percentage. Hope there was at least marginal hike in salary, so I could manage by personal expenses and inflation across products. Continue reading at “G R Team Sites”

India’s first test Match review

So, after finished watching the movie, I switched to the sports channel to check the score for the India’s first test match with England and was surprised to see some other match highlights were going on. I thought either it should be raining or India would have won the match bit early with their best batting skills. I was still hesitant to check the score in online and was hoping to see some scroll in the channel mentioning the play for delayed due to rain. My patience was getting worse every minute and had to overcome my nervousness to check the score online. The moment I opened the sports page online to check the score, I was shell shocked to see title “India’s batting collapse led to England’s victory. It was worst ever performance by the Indian batsmen and bowlers no winning the match despite holding upper hand in almost maximum number of sessions than England. I was too frustrated and didn’t even wanted to see any other cricket matches or highlights ever in the TV. My whole Saturday got ruined because of unwanted office call early in the morning, delayed lunch post washing the vessels and then finally India’s batting collapse to lose yet another test match outside home ground.

Joining new company

I have joined this company almost 2 years back and been offered the basic job profile. Even though I had experience of more than 5+ years, I have been given basic profile. This was all because of the job I switched from my first company, I was enjoying a lot at my 2nd company and had no job satisfaction due to lack of learning opportunities and/or recognitions. So, I have decided to move to this company with moderate hike and with basic job role. When I joined this company, I have been treated as a fresher and have been asked to learn from new College graduates who had just 1-year work experience at their current role. A guy who joined along with me and who was given high grade than me was offered more priority than me in the team. At one point of time, I felt more disappointed than ever and was hoping that at one point all would be normal. After lot of struggle and hard work on the projects I have been assigned, I was able to prove myself and been one of the top performer in the team.
