Brief Review:

Moto One Power is a mid-range Android One smartphone from Motorola which comes with a massive 5000 mAh battery. Recent Motorola phones like the G6, G6 Plus were overpriced but the One Power looks reasonably priced. Should you buy it? Let's find out in our brief review below.

Looks wise, the Motorola One Power looks very similar to the Redmi Note 5 Pro. Just add a notch display to Note 5 Pro and you will get Moto One Power. The camera placement on the rear is vertical and the fingerprint sensor is placed in the center. The Moto logo is above the fingerprint sensor which is not the quickest but does the job well. The design is metal unibody and there's not much to write about it. The display on the front is a 6.2 inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of Full HD+ 1080p. The display is good. The colors are rich and viewing angles are fine as well. The front camera and the earpiece are placed inside the notch.

The phone feels solid but it is a bit bulky because of the massive 5000 mAh battery inside. It weighs 205 gms and the thickness is around 9mm. If you like slim and light-weight phones then this is not for you. The 5000 mAh battery means excellent battery life. You can get 2 days of backup on a single charge with mixed usage. Motorola is providing a fast turbocharger inside the box and it charges the phone from 0 to 100% in just around 2 hours and 15 minutes which is great. 

Moto One Power comes with a dual rear camera and a single front camera. The rear setup is 16MP+5MP where 5MP is the depth sensor to add bokeh effect to your images. The 16MP color sensor has a f/1.8 aperture and the performance is not that great. The portrait mode pictures look very average and Motorola needs to improve it with a software update. The video doesn't have any stabilization so that's shaky. The front camera is 12MP and takes decent pictures outdoors. Indoors low light performance is average for both rear and front cameras. This isn't the best phones in the segment for camera lovers.

The chipset inside the Motorola One Power is the Snapdragon 636. The SD636 chipset is very powerful and can handle any task you throw at it. Using multiple applications and games is going to be a breeze. Moto One Power scores around 115000 on the Antutu Benchmarks which is similar to phones like Note 5 Pro and Zenfone Max Pro. Moto One Power is an Android One smartphone with no bloatware installed. The clean software with a powerful chipset provides a very smooth experience.

Moto One Power comes in just 1 variant which is 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The storage can be expanded via a dedicated MicroSD slot by up to 256GB. The only color available is black. We were expecting more options from Motorola but that didn't happen. 

Moto One Power is exclusively available on Flipkart at Rs.15999. Considering the performance of the phone, we think it offers good value for money. If you need a phone with notch display, stock android, powerful processor and a big battery then Moto One Power will be perfect for you. If you need better cameras then go for Mi A2.

Brief Review:

Honor 8X is the successor of Honor 7X which was launched in the first quarter of 2018. 7X was a big upgrade over the 6X and now 8X is a big upgrade over 7X. We are really impressed with what Honor has done here. Let's take a look at the brief review of Honor 8X.

First, let's talk about the design. The Honor 8X looks stunning. The phone redefines the midrange segment. The only phone which comes close to Honor 8X in looks is the Nokia 6.1 Plus. Honor 8X has a glass sandwich design. On the front, we have a large 6.5-inch display with very thin bezels. Even the chin at the bottom is one of thinnest we have seen on Android devices. The screen to body ratio is over 91% which is excellent. The back of the phone is also covered with glass has a beautiful reflective design with 2 colors. We love how the phone looks.

The 6.5-inch display is an IPS LCD notch display with a resolution of Full HD+. The display is very sharp with great colors, good saturation, and contrast. It is one of the best displays available in this segment. Looks wise, Honor 8X is the best phone available under Rs. 15000 as of October 2018.

Honor 8X is powered by the Hisilicon Kirin 710 which is the latest mid-range chip from Huawei. Kirin 710 is built on 12nm process and offers great performance and power efficiency as well. It has 4 Cortex A53 core and 4 Cortex A73 cores. Performance wise the Kirin 710 chipset is similar to Snapdragon 660 in performance. It scores around 135000 on Antutu benchmarks. With Kirin 710, Honor 8X comes with 4GB to 6GB RAM and 64GB to 128GB storage. The lowest variant comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage and even that variant handles multitasking and gaming with ease. Normal day to day usage on 8X is a breeze with no lag. Heavy games like PUBG and Asphalt 9 also run fine. If your usage is very heavy and involves switching between multiple heavy apps/games then going for the 6GB 128GB variant would be a good option. 

Inside the Honor 8X, we get a 3750 mAh battery which is decent considering the large display size. The battery backup is decent and the phone would easily last for a day with medium use. With light usage, you might get a backup of around 1.5 days. The phone comes with a 10W 5V 2A charger in the box. Honor says it has fast charging but the charging time is around 2 hours for 0 to 100% which is very normal for a device with 3750mAh battery. The port is still MicroUSB. We think Honor should now move to USB Type C ports.

On the camera side, we have a lot of AI stuff going on. Honor has provided a dual 20MP+2MP dual camera on the back. The 20MP is a f/1.8 color sensor and the 2MP is a depth sensor for portrait shots. On the front, we have a 16MP single sensor. Honor is using AI for a lot of stuff. It can adjust settings depending on scene recognition. The AI also helps in improving the quality of low light pictures. The overall performance of the camera is good. Pictures taken in day light looks excellent. The color accuracy is not great and we hope that gets fixed via a software update. The portrait shots also look good with proper edge detection and natural looking bokeh in the background. The video recording also supports slow motion up to 480 fps which is something we don't see on midrange phones.

Honor 8X runs on Honor's EMUI 8.2 which is a skin based on Android Oreo 8.1. EMUI has some bloatware installed and doesn't have a clean look like stock Android but you can always install Nova launcher on it so it is not an issue. EMUI has useful features like dual apps using which you can have 2 WhatsApp on the same phone. EMUI is very stable and doesn't have any irritating bugs. The phone runs smoothly and you won't face any lags.

Honor 8X doesn't have any IP waterproofing certification so keep it away from water and dust. The phone is very slippery because of the glass back so covering it with a nice case would be a good choice. There is a dedicated MicroSD Card available using which you can increase the storage by up to 128GB. Dual VOLTE is also available which is great if you want to use 2 Jio sims at once.

The Honor 8X comes in 3 variants: 4-64GB is priced at 14999, 6-64GB is priced at 16999 and 6-128GB is priced at 18999. The lowest 4-64GB variant provides good performance and excellent value for money so if your usage is not very heavy, go for the lowest variant. The phone comes in 2 colors: Blue and Black. If you need something cool and flashy then go with the Blue color option.

Brief Review:

Realme has made a strong market in the under 10k smartphone and is looking to capture the attention of users having a budget of 10k to 20k. With Realme 2 Pro, Realme certainly looks to heat up the competition with an awesome list of specs and a practical smartphone. Here we review the Realme 2 Pro which comes in 3 variants. Let us discuss the specifications and features this Realme 2 Pro offers which will be a Flipkart exclusive smartphone.

Realme 2 Pro comes with a 6.3-inch display having the Full HD Plus resolution with the Full-screen display. The display is perfectly bright and the brightness is well maintained in the outdoor conditions. Watching videos or movies on this smartphone is appealing and provides a good experience. On the front, we have a waterdrop or also known as the teardrop notch which makes the phone look amazing, which results in an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The earpiece is available just above the notch.

Realme has worked well on the designing on the smartphones and this one is no different, however, they have not replicated the diamond cut design which was features on Realme 1 and the Realme 2. So the Realme 2 pro comes with a polycarbonate body and a perfect glass type shiny finish which will be available in three colors Black Sea, Blue Ocean, and Ice Lake. The box also bundles a TPU(Transparent) case for the smartphone protection.

Coming to the performance of this smartphone which would surely invite a jaw drop reaction, the Realme 2 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 660 chipset and the base variant has a 4 GB of RAM with 64 GB of internal storage. The smartphone scores around 1,33,000 on the Antutu Benchmark which clearly explains how powerful this smartphone is. In our usage of this phone as a primary phone, we played games, watched YouTube videos, listened to music and all other day to day usage like calling, messaging etc and we did not face any problem at all. 

We also played heavy games like PUBG for instance and the phone was able to multitask and handle heavy stuff easily. The Realme 2 Pro comes with an inbuilt AI gaming accelerator which helps boosts the performance. Here you also get Dual sim slot and a dedicated SD card slot to expand the storage by 256 GB. 

Finally on the camera side, Realme 2 Pro has left everyone stunned with a powerful dual camera set up at the back that does not disappoint you at all. On the specification side, the dual rear camera comes with a 16 MP f/1.7 aperture (Sony IMX 398) which is the primary sensor and a 2MP sensor which is the depth sensor and a LED flash. The camera clicks perfect images in both and low light conditions and we were really stunned by the beauty it delivers. The front camera is a 16MP sensor which comes with the AI beautify mode and recognizes the personal characteristics to give you the best photo. The rear camera takes excellent pictures and the front camera is not great as of now. We hope Realme fixes it with a software update.

Both the front and the rear camera on Realme 2 Pro can click portrait shot and the edge detection is perfect. The camera app comes with 5 Light mode namely the Film Light, Mono-Tone Light, Natural Light, Rim Light, Bi-Colour Light which captures and transforms the photos. The camera is also powered by AI that can recognize various scenes and modify the images to look based on contrast, colors and best exposures.

The Realme 2 Pro runs on Color OS 5.2 which is a custom skin based on the Android 8.1 and is the same as used on the Oppo branded smartphones. Here the experience is not the best as the UI is not very clean and there are some bloatware apps which is a compromise in this beautiful and perfect smartphone.

On the battery side, we have a 3500 mAh battery to power the smartphone, in our usage, the battery lasts justs above a day with medium type usage. The phone has a micro USB and does not bundle a fast charger. Also, there is no IP rating on this phone, so protect it from dust and water. For the unlocking of this smartphone, you get both fingerprint and face unlocking mechanism and both are accurate and very very fast which unlock the smartphone in the blink of an eye.

The Realme 2 Pro has 3 variants which are priced as mentioned below.

Variant (RAM - Internal Storage) Pricing (in Rs)
4GB - 64 GB 13,999
6GB - 64 GB 15,999
8GB - 128GB 17,999

To us, the pricing on this Realme 2 Pro looks super exciting, especially the limelight is 8 GB version smartphone has been launched under 20000 for the first time. Realme 2 Pro comes with a tagline of Max Power Max Style and it surely very well delivers on the same. Overall, with its brilliant specifications, features, the Realme 2 Pro is a midrange killer and certainly should be your top choice for a smartphone under 15000 to 20000.

Brief Review:

Pocophone is a sub-brand of Xiaomi like Realme is of Oppo and Pocophone or known as Poco has launched its first smartphone in India on 22nd August 2018. Pocophone has left everyone amazed with a very aggressive pricing despite being powered by the top shot Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 which we saw in the OnePlus 6 and the Zenfone 5ZPoco F1 comes with a notch display, a powerful battery, a good to go camera and everything that a user looking to spend 25k would look for. It smashes all the record of the value for money score and here in this review, we discuss the specifications, features and every detail on the Poco F1, which you as a prospective buyer would look for.

Poco F1 comes with a 6.18 inch Full HD plus display having a resolution of 1080 x 2246 pixels. The display has a notch design which is slightly big and holds the front camera and the IR sensor. The software gives you the option to disable the notch if you do not like it and use the phone like a bezel-less display phone. The screen is of IPS LCD type and is of good quality with perfect brightness and no issues could be observed even using it in the direct sunlight with auto brightness. The one thing which we found a little weird are the thin bezels even above the notch which does affect its looks and design. 

On the build quality side, the Poco Phone comes with a polycarbonate body which is a small compromise comparing the beautiful and gorgeous glass design pattern which we see in the phones today. That does not mean the phone ranks poor on the build quality, overall it is good with metal in between back and front and is decent at the price point considering what all it offers as discussed below. The 8GB 256 GB variant comes in a Kevlar back material which is textured and looks better with a better build quality and is priced at 29k. You can take a look at the Kevlar variant here. The Pocophone is not a fingerprint magnet and there are no smudges as we see on the smartphones with glass designs. Also, there is a translucent case bundled in the box.

Coming to the highlight of this Poco F1, The Performance, and here everyone has their jaw dropped as we witness the all-powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 which till date was only seen in the budget flagship and the flagship smartphone. The Snapdragon 845 in a budget smartphone at 21k is totally insane and has put a big question in front of other manufacturers to think of what should they introduce next. Snapdragon 845 needs no introduction as it was seen in the OnePlus 6 and the Zenfone 5Z. It is an octa-core processor comprising of 4x2.8 GHz Kryo 385 Gold & 4x1.8 GHz Kryo 385 Silver along with Adreno 630 GPU. The Poco F1 also witnesses the LiquidCool Technology, which keeps the CPU temperature maintained that allows the Snapdragon 845 to perform to its full capacity when you are gaming in the super heavy mode.

The phone comes with a 6GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 256 GB with the hybrid micro SD card slot. Without any iota of doubt, the performance is mind-blowing and the RAM management is amazing, the multitasking is super smooth, the gaming performance is brilliant and we did not find even a small hiccup in our usage. The Poco F1 scores a massive 285302 on the Antutu Benchmark shattering any record that existed for a smartphone priced around 20000. On the GeekBench, the Poco F1 scores, 2467 on the Single Core and 9081 on the multi-core, and we would ask you, what else would you get for only Rs 20000. Full marks on the performance to the master of speed, Poco F1.

On the next important aspect of the Poco F1, the camera. Here we get a dual read camera placed vertically in the middle of the phone with 12MP Sony IMX363 + 5MP Samsung, f/1.75 sensors and dual LED flash. The colours in the photo look rich and the shots are pretty much detailed. The images are sharp and you are going to love it for 21000 bucks. Frankly speaking, the camera is not as great as the OnePlus 6 priced at 35000 but gives a tough competition to it.  There is support for 4K videos but the Poco F1 only supports Electronic Image stabilization (EIS) and does not support Optical Image stabilization (OIS). In the portrait mode, the edge detection in bang on and we could see even the hairline edges are very well aligned. There are some AI optimizations in the colours using the object detection. The low light shots are also very bright and contain very less noise, OnePlus 6 is better but only by a tad margin as it captures more light and has slightly better low light images. Also, OnePlus 6 has better image stabilization because of the presence of OIS and the difference could be seen in the videos recorded at 4K resolution of Poco F1 and OnePlus 6.

The front camera comes with a 20 MP sensor and it also supports the portrait mode. The shots are full of details and you might even look better than what you look in the real life. At the pricing of 21k, we are in love with what the camera has to offer. A budget flagship capability in a budget pricing in what Poco offers. The camera configuration, is similar to the Redmi Note 5 Pro and people had questions that if the camera performance in any better? So here, we do not think we should compare, because the camera image quality on the Poco F1 is far better and class apart than the Note 5 Pro which is also directed by a far better image signal processor in the Snapdragon 845.  Poco F1 has the best ever camera seen in any phone in India for a pricing of 21000.

The PocoPhone F1, runs on MIUI 9.6 with POCO specific optimization and is build over the Android Oreo. Poco has promised an update to the MIUI 10 and also the Android P (Pie). The MIUI has some bloatware but the POCO has enabled the gesture recognition which if enabled on your device removes the three button from the bottom and reads your gesture for all the tasks, something similar to what we saw in the iPhone X.

Poco F1 not just comes with a massive processor but a huge battery life. it features a non-removable 4000 mAh battery and gives a screen on time of around 6.5 to 7 hours and with medium usage, you can easily run with the phone for at least 1.5 days. Fro the heaviest of usage, you may still see a battery backup for a full day, this speaks volume of the optimization that comes with the phone and the efficiency of the Snapdragon 845 processor. The Poco F1 has a USB type C port and supports Quick Charge 3.0(quickly charges up the first 20%) with a fast charger bundled in the box. The total time it takes for the charging is about 100-110 minutes.  Poco F1 is not water or dust resistant and there is no IP rating so keep it protected from any damage.

For the unlocking, Poco F1 comes with a fingerprint sensor just below the rear camera and is super quick. It takes less time than the blink of the eye. For the face unlocking, which is also very accurate and fast comes with an additional feature of IR sensor, which enables you to unlock the phone even in darkness. It has a stereo speaker where the main speaker is located at the bottom and the earpiece is used as the second speaker but you do not get a true stereo speaker like seen in the Zenfone 5z but it is decent enough for the pricing. 

After all this, we can just say that Poco has entered the market with a band and is a total game changer for the industry. Without any doubt, the Poco F1 is the best smartphone under 25000 and we can hear the trumpets of the thumping victory this Poco F1 from Xiaomi is going to blow.

The Poco F1 sale starts from 29th August 2018 and is exclusively available on Flipkart via the flash sale. For the 21k variant, you are going to see huge demand as was for the Note 5 Pro. There is a launch offer with Poco F1 where you can get additional Rs 1000 discount if you pay via HDFC credit and debit card.

Brief Review:

Nokia came back last year with Nokia 6 and launched plenty of devices after that. Overall response to Nokia smartphones has been decent. Now, Nokia has launched the successor of Nokia 6 which is Nokia 6.1 Plus. Nokia 6.1 Plus is a midrange smartphone priced around Rs. 15000 in India. Let's take a look at what it offers in this brief review.

Nokia is known for their excellent build quality and Nokia 6.1 Plus is not an exception. The phone is well built and feels very solid in hand. It weighs around 150 grams and the thickness is around 8mm. With excellent build, the design is gorgeous as well. The phone is covered with glass on both sides and looks very premium.

The display on the front is 5.8 inches notch display of 19:9 aspect ratio and Full HD+ resolution. The display is bright and sharp with good viewing angles. Because of 5.8 inch display and thin bezels, the size of the smartphone is smaller compared to phones like Redmi Note 5 Pro. The size is perfect for you if you don't like big phones. You won't face any trouble while using it with one hand.

On the back, we have a fingerprint sensor and dual camera setup. The fingerprint sensor is accurate and quick. The dual camera setup on the back has a 16MP color sensor of f/2.0 aperture with 1um pixel size. Plus, there is a 5MP depth sensor which helps with edge detection to give bokeh effect in portrait mode pictures.

On the front, there is a 16MP single camera sensor which can also take portrait mode selfies. The camera performance is good in outdoor natural lighting conditions. The images look colorful with plenty of details. The portrait mode also works well with good edge detection. Similar is the case with front selfie camera. The camera performance under low light conditions is not great though. We hope Nokia fixes it with a software update.

Inside the Nokia 6.1 Plus, we have a Snapdragon 636 processor powering the device with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Snapdragon 636 is a very capable midrange processor with excellent performance. We have already seen it on phones like Redmi Note 5 and Asus Zenfone Max Pro. 4GB RAM + SD636 is a good configuration for a midrange smartphone. You won't notice any lag while using multiple apps or playing games. On the benchmark side, you will see a score of around 110000 to 115000 on Antutu benchmark. 

64GB is a decent amount of storage. If you need more, you can use the MicroSD slot provided. Do note that it is hybrid slot and you won't be able to use the second sim if you are using a MicroSD Card.

The Nokia 6.1 Plus is an Android One smartphone and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo. There is no bloatware at all. Stock android makes the overall experience very snappy with quick switching between apps. Because it is an Android One device, you can expect quick updates. Android P should arrive in a couple of months.

The battery inside the Nokia 6.1 Plus is an average one. The battery capacity is just 3060mAh and you can expect a day of backup with medium usage. If you are a heavy user, you might have to plug the device in the evening. The phone supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 but doesn't come with a fast charger inside the box. Buying a fast charger would be a good investment for heavy users. 

Nokia 6.1 Plus isn't water or dust proof so there is no IP rating for it. The glass on the back and front makes it a bit slippery so add a case if you are one of those who tend to drop their phones a lot.

Nokia 6.1 Plus comes in 3 colors: Black, Blue, and White. If you ask us, which one is the best color then we would suggest you the Black version. The other 2 colors are great as well. 

Overall, we love the Nokia 6.1 Plus. It has great design, excellent performance, and good cameras. The only negative point is the average battery backup but it is not a deal breaker. Earlier Nokia phones were a bit overpriced but this time Nokia has done well. The pricing of 15999 is really good and makes it one of the best phones in this segment.

Nokia 6.1 Plus is a Flipkart exclusive smartphone and it will be available from 30th August.

Brief Review:

Oppo has launched the Oppo F9 and F9 Pro which are the successors of the last year's Oppo F7. The latest phones have some improvements, we won't call it a big upgrade. The F9 and F9 Pro are exact same phones with only one difference which is the RAM. F9 comes with 4GB RAM and F9 Pro comes with 6GB RAM.

The Oppo F9/F9 Pro comes with a very modern design. Oppo has ditched the rectangular notch which we have been seeing on almost every other smartphone. Oppo has come up with a new notch called as waterdrop notch. The notch is really small and houses the front camera. The bezels are minimal and screen to body ratio is over 90% which is excellent for a phone priced under 20000. 

The display size is 6.3 inches with Full HD Plus resolution and an aspect ratio of around 19.5:9. The display is beautiful with rich colors, good saturation, and contrast. Because of the small notch and thin bezels, watching movies or playing games on this device is a great experience. 

On the back, you will see some 3D effects. Oppo has used 2 colors on the back with diamond cuts which can be seen from an angle. It is a fresh design and you will love it if you are bored of seeing boring plain black or white backs. If you don't like flashy stuff then you might hate the back of Oppo F9. The phone comes in 2 colors: Red and Blue. Blue one is our favorite. 

The thickness is under 8mm and it weighs around 170 grams. You will find it comfortable in hand. One hand usage might not be possible though.

On the back, we have a fingerprint sensor and a dual camera setup. The Oppo F7 came with a single 16MP camera but this time Oppo has added a secondary 2MP depth sensor to help with portrait mode pictures with depth/bokeh effect. The front camera is the same 25MP shooter as we saw on the F7. The camera performance is similar to F7. The outdoor pictures look vibrant with good amount of details. The indoor pictures under low light conditions are not that great and not bad either. Oppo is using AI to enhance the pictures depending on the scene. The selfies look great as well. The phone will beautify your face using AI. If you don't like that, you can turn it off. Overall, it is a good camera phone with shots that are rich, vibrant and well balanced.

Under the hood, Oppo F9 and F9 Pro have a MediaTek Helio P60. Helio P60 is a very capable SoC with 8 cores out of which 4 are high-performance Cortex A73s while the other 4 are high-efficiency Cortex A53s, all clocked at 2.0GHz. For all your gaming needs there’s a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU which also works well. The hardware is powerful and power efficient and you won't face any day while day to day usage or gaming. On Antutu, you can expect a score of around 135000 which is similar to the score of Snapdragon 660. 

The Oppo F9 and F9 Pro pack a 3500mAh battery, which is decent capacity. Thanks to the power efficient SoC, you can expect a day of backup with heavy usage and 1.5 days of backup with low to medium usage. The phone comes with VOOC fast charging which is really fast. You can get 2 hours of talking with 5 minutes of charge. This is crazy quick. Oppo has bundled a 20W Fast charger in the box which is great. 

The Oppo F9 runs on Color OS which is a skin based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Color OS is a heavily customized skin and has a lot of bloatware. If you are someone who likes the look and feel of stock Android then Oppo F9 is not for you. If you absolutely hate the skin and like the phone then installing Nova launcher is a good option.

And to your caution, there’s no IP rating on this one so keep it as far from liquids and dust as possible.

The Oppo F9 is priced at 19990 and the F9 Pro is priced at 23990. We think F9 provides more value for money. The F9 Pro has just 2GB of extra RAM so spending extra 4000 for it doesn't make a lot of sense. 

Oppo F9 is a gorgeous smartphone with latest features at the decent price. Go for it if you need a fresh looking smartphone with good cameras, a powerful processor at around 20k.

  • 6 inch Full HD+ Display 1080p
  • Back Camera: 20MP+12MP Dual Camera
  • Front Camera: 20MP
  • 3010mAh Battery

Brief Review:

Mi A2 is the successor of Mi A1 which was the first Android One smartphone from Xiaomi. Mi A2 is also an Android One phone and is priced little above 15000 in India. While there have been significant improvements in terms of chipset and camera performance, a lot of compromises have been made. Let's take a look at the brief review and find out whether you should buy it or not.

Mi A2 back design is similar to that of Redmi Note 5 Pro. The phone has a metal unibody design. Metal feels great in hand but it is slippery so having a case would be a good option. The dual camera setup is placed vertically at the corner and the fingerprint sensor is at the center. The antenna bands have moved closer to the top and bottom edges of the phone. The phone comes in 3 colors: Black, Blue, and Gold. If you are wondering which one is the best color of Mi A2 then our answer would be Black. 

The display on the front is also similar to Redmi Note 5 Pro's display. The size is 5.99 inches with Full HD+ resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. The display is sharp and bright with good colors and viewing angles. Overall, the phones look good and feel comfortable in hand.

Let's talk about the camera which is the USP of this device. There is a 20MP+12MP dual camera setup on the back. Both 20MP and 12MP cameras are color sensors. We would have preferred a wide angle lens or a telephoto lens. The pixels are large and the aperture is f/1.75 which helps in low light photos. The camera performance of the rear camera is great. The pictures look great with plenty of details, natural colors and good dynamic range.

The front camera has a 20MP sensor and the performance is again excellent. The selfies look great with plenty of details. You can use the beautify mode to make your pictures look better. Plus, it supports portrait mode which detects edges properly and adds a natural looking blur. Excellent camera performance makes it one of the best camera phones under 20000. 

The Mi A2 is powered by the powerful Snapdragon 660 chipset which coupled with 4GB of RAM can handle any task you throw at it. Whether you like to switch between tens of apps or you like to play heavy games like PUBG of Asphalt 9, this phone is going to handle it with ease. You won't notice any frame drop or lag. It is a great option for gamers as well.

On benchmarks side, you will see a stellar performance. On Antutu benchmarks, the Mi A2 scores around 135000 which is a great score for a phone priced in this range. On Geekbench, you will see a score of around 1600 on single core and 4600 on multicore. 

The phone has 64GB of inbuilt storage and there is no MicroSD slot to increase the storage. Yes, no MicroSD slot. They could have easily put a hybird sim tray in there but they decided to go against it. So if you need extra space, you don't have any option to expand it.

Plus, there is no 3.5mm headphone jack as well. Why? Maybe Xiaomi was unable to find space for it or maybe they just want to follow the stupid trend of removing the headphone jack for no reason at all. When IP68 rated smartphones like LG G7 can have the headphone jack then why can't Mi A2? Removal of the headphone jack and MicroSD slot from Mi A2 are couple of the things that we hate most. 

Inside the Mi A2, there is a 3010mAh battery. The device would last for a day on medium usage. With heavy usage, you might need to charge it in the evening. Battery performance is just average here. The phone does support Quick Charge 4.0 which should charge your device very quickly but the fast charging brick is not included in the box and you need to buy it separately. It comes with the normal 5V 2A charge in the box.

The device is running on stock Android Oreo. It is an Android One device so you will get software updates very quickly. The latest Android P should arrive in a couple of months. There is very little bloatware on the device which makes multitasking a breeze. RAM management is good as well. 

So should you buy Mi A2? Depends on what you want and what you can live without. If you need excellent camera performance, powerful chipset and stock android and you can live without a headphone jack, a MicroSD slot and average battery backup, then go for it. 

If you need a good battery backup, a headphone jack and MicroSD slot with little lower camera performance then Redmi Note 5 Pro or Asus Zenfone Max Pro 6GB are better options.

Brief Review:

Honor is on a roll in India and they are launching phones at a crazy rate. Till August, we have seen more than 10 launches from Honor. Honor Play is the latest one which is priced under Rs. 20000 and specifications are going to surprise you. Let's take a look at the brief review of Honor Play.

Honor Play is a nice looking phone. The phone has a metal unibody design and has a matte finish on the back which gives it a nice look. Both Black and Blue color looks great. The dua camera setup is placed vertically at the corner and the fingerprint sensor is placed at the center. The fingerprint sensor is quick and responsive.

On the front, we have a notch display of 6.3 inches. The resolution is Full HD+ and the aspect ratio is 19:9. Notch was more of a compromise when it showed up on iPhone X and after that, every OEM copied it like it was some kind of feature. We are not really a fan of the notch but some people do like it. Overall, the phone looks really good and is comfortable to hold.

Honor Play is powered by Huawei's own Kirin 970 chipset which is there on their other flagship phones like P20 Pro, Honor 10, View 10 etc. The Kirin 970 is an octa-core SoC with 4x2.4 GHz Cortex-A73 and 4x1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 cores. It is similar to Snapdragon 835 in performance.  For handling the graphics workloads, Kirin 970 packs an impressive Mali G72 MP 12 as GPU, and It has serious power. Honor has made things even better with GPU turbo which provides better performance and more efficiency. With 4GB of RAM and Kirin 970, you are going to see flagship like performance on the Honor Play. Whether it is switching between multiple apps or playing heavy games, this phone is going to handle it with ease. 

The performance is visible in Antutu benchmark as well. You can expect an Antutu score of around 200000 which is 30-50% more than other phones in this price range.On Geekbench, you will see a single core benchmark score of around 1800 and multi-core score of around 6800.

Honor Play comes in just 1 variant which packs 4GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB of UFS 2.1 storage. You can expand the storage via MicroSD up to 256GB. But it is a hybrid sim slot so you cannot use 2 sim cards with a MicroSD. The RAM and storage are again flagship grade which is something you don't usually see in this price range.

Honor Play comes with a dual 16MP+2MP camera setup on the back and 16MP single camera on the front. The dual camera setup on the back has a 16MP color sensor and the 2MP sensor helps to give a bokeh effect to the pictures also known as portrait mode. The camera can record 4K videos and has EIS-AIS stabilization as well. The camera performance is good in outdoor natural light conditions. The pictures have a good amount of details with natural looking colors. The portrait mode works well.

Honor Play is also using AI in the camera which detects the category and surrounding to optimize the pictures. If you are taking a picture in a park in daylight, it will tweak settings according to it and if you are taking pictures inside a room in low light conditions then settings will be tweaked according to that. It all happens in real time and you don't have to do anything. 

The front 16MP camera also takes decent shots indoors and outdoors. It also uses AI to enhance/beautify your face. Plenty of options are provided to make your selfies look better. Selfie camera is also used for Face unlock which works well and unlocks your phone in less than a second.

Honor is pitching Honor Play as gaming smartphone. In addition to GPU Turbo, there's one other interesting feature which is 4D gaming mode. It takes the gaming experience to next level by providing feedback like vibrations while you are shooting in a game. It is going to drain the battery faster but it is a cool feature.

Honor Play comes with EMUI 8.2 which is a custom skin based on Android 8 Oreo. EMUI has some bloatware but it is not laggy. It has some useful features like dual apps which can come in handy if you want to use multiple accounts on apps like WhatsApp. Overall, the UI looks good and it is responsive as well. You won't face any lag during the day to day usage.

Honor Play comes with a 3750mAh battery which is a good capacity. You can expect a backup of around 1 day on medium to heavy usage with a screen on time of around 6 hours. With low usage, it would last for 1.5 days on a single charge. The phones come with a 9V 2A fast charge in the box which is another plus point.

Honor Play is not water or dust proof and there is no IP rating so keeping it away from the water will be a good option.

So what are we getting at a price of 20000? A good looking phone with a nice large display on the front, a powerful chipset, 4GB of RAM, dual camera, large battery and excellent performance. We think Honor Play is the best phone under 20000 as of now. The only negative point is the availability. It is available via flash sales and the stock is very limited so getting hands on a device is going to be difficult.

Brief Review:

Samsung is on a spree of launching a new smartphone in India. With Samsung Galaxy J6, J8 and On6 receiving great response from the Samsung lovers, Samsung has taken this opportunity of good times and launched the all new Samsung Galaxy On 8 2018 version. So here we are with the review, features and specification on the Samsung Galaxy On8. We have also listed a few pros and cons on this smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy On8 comes with a 6-inch infinity display or as Samsung calls it a bezel-free design, having an aspect ratio of 18.5:9 with the Samsung all-time favourite, a Super AMOLED display. The display has HD Plus resolution and before you feel disappointed of the resolution not being a Full HD as seen in other smartphones in the price range of 15000, let us tell you that the display is sharp, bright and has a perfect colour reproduction. The Super AMOLED display is perfect to watch videos, play games and the experience will not ever let you down.

In terms of the build quality, Samsung On8 is build of a plastic body (polycarbonate) with a metal frame in between back and front. Samsung is a trademark for good quality and the On8 very well justifies it. The phone feels comfortable and easy to hold in hand. Again even if you are not a Samsung lover, you will have no issues using this phone for a long time as the quality is solid and durable.

Let us now talk about the performance factor where Samsung has shown some resilience from the beginning especially in the budget segment. Here Samsung Galaxy On8 comes powered with Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 which scores about 57300 on the Antutu benchmark. The Galaxy On8 looks to compete with Redmi Note 5 Pro and Zenfone Max Pro and Realme 1 in this price segment. Though we are not much excited with this choice of processor, but it all depends on your usage if you are not a very heavy user and only use your smartphone for normal day to day usage like browsing, using WhatsApp, watching videos of YouTube, then you will not face any problem here with the Snapdragon 450. 

On the Samsung Galaxy On8 2018, We get 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory which is a good configuration and the RAM very well supports the processor and hence we did not observe any issue with low to medium end games and decent multitasking. However heavy gaming does see some frame drops and lag while using. 

Next segment to discuss here in the review of Samsung Galaxy On8 is the Camera, where Samsung always puts its heart out to give you the best experience. Here On8 gets a dual rear camera with 16 MP(f/1.7) + 5MP(f/1.9) sensors and a single LED flash. With this camera on the Galaxy On8, you would be mesmerized by the sharpness and colour reproduction and contrast in the images. The shots look near to real life view and we will not hesitate to rate Samsung Galaxy On8 as one of the best camera phones in the price range of 15000 to 20000. Also, the bokeh shots are spot on with near to perfect edge detection and blurring effect. The camera has various modes like pro mode, panorama, portrait etc to keep you always engaged with it.

While every other smartphone manufacturer company is playing with AI for its camera images, Samsung with the Galaxy On8 2018 has introduced really cool features which you would not like to miss. The first one is the Background Blur Shape, where you can change the background blur light to apply objects like stars, heart etc in the blurred form which looks good in some of the pictures we clicked. The next in the  Portrait Dolly feature where we can create a GIF where the focussed object or person zooms in and out of the background giving a special stature to the focussed object. The third interesting new feature on the On8 is called the  Portrait Backdrop (Live Focus), where you get the control of changing the focus on the already clicked image and blur or add any of the different predefined effects in the background.  Samsung has also added a feature of Live Stickers, that further allows you to play with the photos by adding any of the predefined stickers to the image and have fun with it.

On the front camera, we get a 16MP sensor with a variable front LED flash and if you click a lot of selfie in your day to day routine, then you are surely going to fall in love with this camera for its beautiful image capture. The colour quality and brightness all look great for a camera in this price range. To add to the camera review on Samsung Galaxy On8, we also observed that the low light shots look good with both rear and front camera and only minor noise was observed in some cases. The front camera of the On8 also supports bokeh effect which works pretty well.

Samsung had recently launched a Char Over Video Feature, in some of the recent smartphones, and this continues with the Galaxy On8 as it is a useful feature. What this does is, it allows you to chat with your friends on social media while you are watching a video on your phone and this happens simultaneously. Here, the background of the chat box is made transparent with a small pop and does not hamper your video viewing experience at all.

As we discussed the internal storage of 64 GB, we also get a dedicated SD card slot to expand the storage up to 256 GB. This allows it to be used as a proper dual sim phone. Galaxy On8 runs of Android Oreo 8.0 with a custom skin at the top. In the software, we see some preinstalled Samsung apps and other little bloatware but the user experience is smooth and easy to use. This smartphone supports both fingerprint and face unlocking methods which are quick and accurate.

On the battery backup, we have a non-removable battery rated at 3500 mAh which easily works throughout the day. The battery can many times last more than a day because of a not so heavy processor on this smartphone.  There is no fast charging and we get a usual micro USB port and not a type C port. Also, the On8 2018 does not come with any IP rating and you should keep it protected from dust and water.

Overall, considering the previous Samsung smartphones, the recently launched J series (J6 and J8) and now the On6 and this Galaxy On8 offer great value for money as a smartphone. For a Samsung lover and even for not so Samsung enthusiast people, if you are not looking for a top-notch performance phone, this On8 offers a good perspective to bet on for a budget of 15 to 20k.
