The plastic build of the Xiaomi Poco F1 was failed to pass the bend test

Poco F1, the new smartphone from Xiaomi that already gained huge popularity in India, has now undergone some durability tests. These come in the form of scratch, burn, and bend tests to ultimately check how the new smartphone performs in terms of toughness. The latest development comes days after Xiaomi officially confirmed the splash resistance of the Poco F1. The Chinese company also highlighted that the smartphone has Quick Charge 4.0 support, though it was initially announced with Quick Charge 3.0.

None other than YouTuber JerryRigEverything has released a video showing the durability of the Poco F1. Once unboxed, the YouTuber begins the Poco F1 durability test by start scratching the display panel that comes with a 2.5D curved Gorilla Glass 3 on top. The display is found to withstand scratches of up to 6 on Mohs’ scale of hardness. However, some deeper grooves were found at a level of 7. “It’s covered in Gorilla Glass, and you won’t have to worry about keys or coins or razor blades scratching the large 6.2-inch display,” the narrator describes in the video.

After scratch testing the display panel, the YouTuber took the sides of the Poco F1 to check the paint job. The shiny paint wasn’t able to resist the attacks of the sharp razor.

 

The fingerprint sensor that sits at the back of the Poco F1 is found to be “invincible” that resists scratches even from a sharp blade. Similar is the case of the protector covering dual rear camera setup that helps bear scratches. However, the back panel of the smartphone is highly prone to scratches. The plastic back, nevertheless, doesn’t shatter in case of any sudden drops, unlike models such as OnePlus 6 that carry a glass back.

Xiaomi Poco F1 Review

Further, the YouTuber took a burn test under which the screen of the Poco F1 wasn’t able to withstand an open flame even for few seconds. The phone also failed to pass the bend test. But notably, the body requires a huge force to change its shape.

Shardul Vihan Claims Double Trap Silver, India Fail To Reach Men’s Kabaddi Final For First Time


Fifteen-year-old shooter Shardul Vihan added a silver to India’s Asian Games 2018 Medal Tally when he finished second in the men’s double trap event. The youngster from Meerut is participating in his first Asian Games and has shown some tremendous skill and poise. Shardul was leading for most part of the final but lost some crucial points at key moments to relinquish his grip on a gold medal. India’s medal tally got moving in the morning when tennis player Ankita Raina won bronze in women’s singles. In a match that lasted a little over two hours, the Indian lost in straight games, 4-6, 6-7 to China’s Shuai Zhang. By winning the bronze medal, Ankita became only the second Indian woman to get her name etched in the Asian Games’ singles medallist list. Tennis star Sania Mirza was the first woman to win silver in the 2006 edition in Doha, followed by a bronze in the 2010 edition in Guangzhou.

Sania Mirza’s silver medal-winning performance in 2006 is India’s best women’s singles performance at the Games.

Earlier in the day, the pair of Rohan Bopanna and Divij Sharan assured India of at least a silver in men’s doubles tennis event as they progressed to the final. The Indian duo beat Japan’s Kaito Uesugi and Sho Shimabukuro 4-6, 6-3, 10-8.

Seven-time champion India failed to reach the Asian Games men’s kabaddi final for the first time after a shock 18-27 loss to Iran in the semifinals on Thursday.    

India, who had won the men’s kabaddi gold in all the earlier seven Asian Games after the sport was introduced in 1990 in Beijing, produced the worst ever show in the continental mega multi-sporting event.    

The country settled for the bronze medal along with Pakistan, who had lost to South Korea in the other semifinal.

India had finished second in the group stage after a loss to South Korea.

India, placed ninth, have a total of 18 medals on the Asian Games Medal Tally, with four gold, four silver and ten bronze medals.

Umar Khalid’s Attackers Fail To Surrender At Punjab Village


JNU student Umar Khalid was shot at in a high-security central Delhi area on Monday.

New Delhi: 

Two men, who had claimed responsibility for the attack on JNU student leader Umar Khalid and said that they would surrender in a village in Punjab, did not turn up yesterday, police said.

A team of Delhi Police’s Special Cell visited the village of Sikh revolutionary Kartar Singh Sarabha where the duo, Darwesh Shahpur and Naveen Dalal, had said they would surrender.

A senior police officer said the two did not turn up there and have not been seen in their native village Jhajjar in Haryana for the past few days.

In a video uploaded on Facebook on August 15, the duo claimed the attack on Khalid was supposed to be an “Independence Day gift” to the citizens. 

Police are verifying the authenticity of the video and trying to trace the IP address from where it was uploaded.

“We respect our Constitution. But there is no provision in our Constitution to punish mad dogs. By mad dogs, we mean the JNU gang that is making the country weaker and their number is increasing. Our elders in Haryana have taught us that such people should be taught a lesson,” Darwesh Shahpur had said in the video message.

The duo also requested the police to not trouble anyone and said they would surrender at the village of Sikh revolutionary Kartar Singh Sarabha on August 17. 

Umar Khalid was attacked on Monday when he was on his way to take part in an event at the Constitution Club here. He, however, escaped unhurt.

On Tuesday, the Delhi Police handed over the case to its Special Cell, which incidentally is already probing a sedition case against Umar Khalid and two other JNU students.

The police had also said that they were not “intimated” about Monday’s event attended by Umar Khalid. 

A police officer, privy to the probe, said the police had seized the weapon used in the crime and preliminary forensic examination suggested that the pistol had jammed when it was used against Umar Khalid.

He said they were yet to ascertain whether shots were fired as no empty cartridges were found at the spot.

A case of attempt to murder has been registered by police in the incident.

In Viral Quiz Show Fail, Contestant Confuses Obama With Osama


A clip from the game show The $100,000 Pyramid – a word association game.

About a week ago, a contestant on the Turkish version of popular game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? went viral for using up two of her lifelines to answer where the Great Wall of China is located. Now, a similar game show fail has gone viral – this time because a constant confused former US President Barack Obama with Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden. A clip of the unfortunate gaffe has collected over 2.5 million views since it was tweeted on August 14.

Comedian Evan Kaufman was a contestant on the game show The $100,000 Pyramid – a word association game and was paired up with actor and comedian Tim Meadows. Mr Kaufman had to offer clues to his partner so he could guess the answer to “People Whose Last Name Is Obama”.

That’s when Mr Kaufman, who incidentally has Barack Obama as a follower on Twitter, offers the clue “Bin Laden”.

While a longer clip shows Mr Kaufman offering “Barack” as his second clue, this clip – with over 35,600 ‘likes’ and more than 12,700 retweets – has all of the Internet’s attention.

Even model Chrissy Teigen.

Mr Kaufman eventually took to Twitter to share his side of the story. “Let me tell you the story about perhaps the most embarrassing moment of my life. #KillMe,” he tweeted. After explaining his state of mind during the show in his initial tweets, Mr Kaufman says he froze when he saw the square flip. “I can’t just say Barack. What I should have said was, ‘Michelle, Sasha, Malia, Bo! The PORTUGUESE WATER DOG BO!'” he tweeted. Instead:

“And so you have this perfectly viral clip. A clip that is insanely funny. It would be so funny if it wasn’t me,” he tweeted further. He eventually went home with $8500.

Over 200 Milk Samples Fail Adulteration Test In Ludhiana


340 samples of milk passed while 210 samples failed. (Representational)

Ludhiana: 

Over 200 samples of milk out of 550 failed an adulteration test during a campaign launched by the Punjab Dairy Development Board (PDDB), an official said today.

Dilbagh Singh Hans, Deputy Director, PDDB, said the village-level campaign to check adulteration in milk and milk products began on June 5 and concluded today.

A total of 550 samples were collected during this drive, of which 340 passed while 210 samples failed, he said.

Officials of the department also visited schools to educate children about ways to check milk adulteration, Hans said.

Under this campaign, experts from the Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University also spread awareness among people in villages about the Food Safety Act, dairy farming etc.

2 Spoons Of Cough Syrup Can Make You Fail The Dope Test In Punjab


Chandigarh/Mohali: 

From the ruling Congress, to the opposition AAP, politicians in Punjab are lining up to take dope tests in an attempt to prove they are serious about fighting the drug menace in the state. This comes after Chief Minister Amarinder Singh earlier this week ordered bureaucrats in the state to get themselves tested. 

Dr Debasish Basu, Professor drug de-addiction centre, PGI, Chandigarh, explains how the test is conducted.

“The common test is called immunoassay. It is a rapid screening test, like a common pregnancy test which can be done within minutes. It is only a screening test and there is always an issue about false positive and false negative… because it does not diagnose addiction or dependence. Nobody can diagnose drug dependence by a simple screening urine test”, he tells NDTV. 

Experts in Punjab say the dope tests will only detect the presence of narcotics in samples but will not diagnose addiction, that is, it tests use not abuse. For example, a person who had smoked cannabis in a party a few days ago but is not a regular user could test positive, whereas a regular user of heroin who had abstained for three to four days prior to their test could come out negative. 

“When we do these dope tests on under treatment patients, that’s to test re-lapse etc, in that context it makes sense but this way even a cough syrup, which contains chemical called Dextromethorphan – that will give positive opium. So it will appear that the person has taken heroin”, Dr Basu says.

To check whether cough syrup can also lead to a positive result, this reporter bought an over-the-counter cough syrup, consumed two teaspoons within four hours, and then got herself tested for Rs 1,500 at the district civil hospital in Mohali.

Within minutes the result is out and shows that the reporter has failed the test. So, a person seeking a government job or hoping for a promotion as a government employee could possibly be rejected based on a cough syrup.

The dope test is, however, not completely pointless, explains, Dr PL Garg, Former Executive Director, State Health System Resource Centre, Punjab. 

“This can be seen as a psychological warfare… to send out a message amid the ranks of police, bureaucrats”, he says. 

There are 3.87 lakh government employees in Punjab, which is barely 2 per cent of the 2.7 crore population of the state.

According to the government’s own survey in 2017, conducted by PGI Chandigarh, every sixth person in Punjab is dependent on some drug. But just the checks for government employees will cost the state an estimated Rs 48 crore.

Cabinet Minister of Punjab, Tripat R Bajwa explains the government’s need to make this test mandatory. “It is a strong message that anyone found involved, from DGP to a Constable, from secretary to a clerk no one will be spared”, he tells NDTV.
