The design and UI is totally unique, along with the most comprehensive analysis of each and every feature and specification of mobile phones(to begin with). Techook will make decision making for buying mobile phones easier than ever before. The stack-based platform in the Indian scenario will be the most unique and user-friendly UI. We are confident of creating great user value with comprehensive content around mobile phones and in the future, around other gadgets. This will be an ad-free product, and user experience will be of the highest standard.”
But what really sets Techook apart from other tech portals is its focus on leveraging technology as a key differentiator. The platform has employed world-class technology for an uncluttered user experience, pioneering the card-format layout in India. This allows users to move from one page to another without leaving the current page. There is no browser load, and the navigation is smooth and hassle-free with swipe-based, ad-free premium content and layout. This focus on a seamless interface and engaging content has allowed the platform to capture and retain reader interest.
“In this digital day and age, technological adoption is no longer a choice. This also reflects in how Techook is designed. We have conducted exhaustive market research and user feedback surveys to create a platform that met and exceeded the expectations of the new-age user. With this launch, we are now one step closer to cementing our leadership status in the tech journalism segment,” added Sandeep Amar.
