Brief Review:

Samsung Galaxy A6 in the latest smartphone launched in the last week of May 2018. With this smartphone, Samsung has aligned some of the features with the latest trends and a few still to be achieved. Samsung has one of the best industrial design and manufacturing processes in the world and you can be assured of that by the looks of this smartphone. Built primarily of metal, the smartphone feels totally premium without any two ways about It. The metal construction makes the smartphone solid and well-gripping in hand.

On the front, is the iconic Infinity Display at an aspect ratio of 18.5: 9 with a resolution of 720 x 1480 pixels with a pixel density of 294PPI on a 5.6-inch Super AMOLED Panel, the resolution isn’t what we were expecting. It had to be at least a 1080p panel but Samsung has invested into an infinity display which has some borders on the sides and very significant ones at top and bottom. The display feels a lot better than a 720 x  1480 display and is super bright, super saturated and the colours just feel so crisp and punchy.

At the back, we find a refreshing approach to Antenna bands by flaunting them. In the center, is the vertically oriented camera housing with rounded corners. The fingerprint sensor sits right below the camera, followed by Samsung logo embellishing the smartphone. We are not satisfied with the size and placement of fingerprint sensor as It is quite difficult to reach and It still has quite a small surface area. We admire the design of Galaxy A6, It carries the surplus amount of premium and finesse, It is somewhat heavy but doesn’t compromise on build quality and construction materials. 

The hardware side of things isn’t a whole lot sweet with Exynos 7870 powering the smartphone. For those who don’t know, Exynos 7780 is an octa-core CPU with Cortex-A53s all lined up and working at 1.6GHz. The device is grossly under-equipped for Its price as the devices coming in at half the price pack equal or better performance. Performance is one of the most crucial aspects of a smartphone and while the normal, everyday tasks are just fine. The deficiency in power starts to show up as you push the device further by opening several apps and switching between games.

Galaxy A6 comes in a single variant with 4GB RAM and 32GB of onboard memory. 4GB of RAM is enough for most cases and makes multitasking bearable on this smartphone. There is a dedicated MicroSD slot to expand the storage up to 256GB. The general performance is no doubt fluid and snappy but the struggle this phone faces on facing multiple apps is quite conspicuous. We recently reviewed Honor 7C which is a budget device and shockingly the performance here is quite similar. Samsung has just thrown the value for money parameter out of the window and for a smartphone priced above Rs 20k, you don’t expect that.

MALI T830 GPU is capable but is still not up to Adreno’s standards on other Qualcomm Snapdragon-based smartphones so the smartphone does fair in casual games but starts to struggle with heavy titles. On the GeekBench, the smartphone scores 723, 3605 on single core and multi-core tests respectively. On the Antutu Benchmark, the Samsung Galaxy A6 scores around 46000.

Let us talk about the camera now, As with most Samsung smartphones, the camera performance sways us away. The smartphone has a single, 16 MP (f/1.7) sensor with LED flash and while you might be complaining about dual cameras, hold on because this smartphone camera does a lot better than other smartphones which have dual sensors. Yes, the smartphone is missing the portrait tricks but It takes absolutely stunning shots whether It be bright daylight or some low-light situations, thanks to the wide aperture. In some shots, we observed excessive sharpening which is software based as Samsung has to compensate for putting a wide aperture lens. The colour reproduction is great and noise levels are fairly low, even in low-light conditions. There is a whole lot of detail and yeah, Samsung cameras do have the tendency to make the scene appear more cinematic and picturesque than It usually is so you can’t escape that. 

The front sensor is equally delightful with 16MP, (f/1.9) with soft LED flash for night time selfies. The front sensor also captures some really amazing photos with tons of details and less noise even in low-light situations, It is not as good as the rear sensor in night time but It sure makes a great selfie camera. Again, the selfie camera does some softening on Its own with some added processing to make the photos appear more ‘good looking’ and that’s again a Samsung thing you can’t do anything about.  Overall, we are quite pleased with the camera performance of Samsung Galaxy A6, It does equally well on all front and rear shots with good details and dynamic range on spot.

On the software side,  Samsung Galaxy A6 runs on Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, with Samsung’s own software overlay on top. The skin is called Experience 9.0 and Its a grown-up version of TouchWiz we’d say, but a lot better. We like the overall look and feel of the skin. On top, there are some Microsoft apps which can’t be uninstalled. Experience is fast on Its way to become TouchWiz and Samsung is not much concerned. There are a lot of features, well packed in the UI and a lot of them are quite useful as well, but we feel the Samsung Experience is getting more and more bloated by each iteration.

Samsung Galaxy A6 gets Its power from a non-removable Li-ion, 3000mAh battery which is well enough for a day. Credits to this can be attributed to the OLED panel and the low-power chip which powers the device. Talking of charging, things get a little out of colour here as there is no fast charging support, on top of that there’s a MicroUSB port instead of a USB-C. There is a single downward firing speaker beside the charging port and yes, It is not outrageously loud but It is not any bad either. The device doesn’t carry any IP ratings with It, so don’t get it close to water or dust, for its longevity. The panel is an OLED panel, has Samsung’s always-on features where you don’t have to wake the smartphone to see time, notifications and other basic stuff. It makes life easy.

Brief Review:

Samsung Galaxy A6 plus is the higher variant launched along with the Samsung Galaxy A6 in May 2018. As always the build quality is amazing, with not the top notch but a decent camera and a low value for Money score. Let us talk about each of the features of Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus.

Samsung Galaxy A6+ is slightly bigger than the Galaxy A6 with a 6-inch Super AMOLED Panel with a Full HD resolution of 1080 x 2220 pixels. The display comes from the line of famous Samsung ‘Infinity Displays’ so its tall at an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. This makes up the pixel density to be ~411PPI which is quite better than Samsung Galaxy A6’s ~292PPI. This difference is well seen in real life as well, where we find the A6+ having a more bright, punchy and crispier display with better contrast levels. So, this sets it out straight - Samsung Galaxy A6+ doesn’t only have a bigger screen but a better screen than Galaxy A6. There are some bezels up top and bottom as well. There’s is no notch, and the top houses an array of sensors, earpiece, front camera and a soft LED flash for selfies in low-light.

On the rear, the device is again identical to Galaxy A6 with premium metal design and quite visible antenna bands in a rounded pattern. The striking difference comes in the camera housing, where Samsung Galaxy A6+ has a dual camera set up against one on the Galaxy A6. The fingerprint sensor sits right below the cameras and again, we don’t like the position as It often leads to fingers on camera and is quite difficult to reach as well. The device is quite gorgeous and quite slippery as It comes sleek at 7.9mm thickness and weighs over 190 grams, It definitely gets tough to grip this one tight for longer durations. In all, we love the design and build quality of Samsung Galaxy A6+, Its an absolutely beautiful device with some amazing build quality with zero compromises.

Samsung Galaxy A6+ is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450. Yes, the same Snapdragon 450 found in Xiaomi Redmi 5, the budget champion. We are quite shocked with Samsung’s choices here, being a mid-ranger the least we expected is a Snapdragon 600 series SoC but the situation is even worse here. Ergo, the performance is like a budget smartphone and multitasking is quite not what we would expect with lags and hangs as the number of apps get more. On the Antutu Benchmark, the Samsung Galaxy A6+ scores around 57000 which is quite low for a performance index of a mid-range smartphone.

Adreno 506 serves as GPU and It works fine with most games but we did observe some stutter and frame drops in normal mode in some heavy games like Asphalt 8. All of this is backed by 4GB of RAM, which is great but makes quite a weird combination with Snapdragon 450.  The result is, that the smartphone is able to keep more apps in memory and hence switching is a bit faster. There is an option for expandable storage up to 256GB with a dedicated MicroSD card besides the 64GB of onboard storage. Everyday tasks are smooth and the UI is responsive, If you aren’t much of a heavy user, the smartphone performance isn’t gonna concern you a lot, but in comparison with other mid-rangers like the Nokia 7 Plus or even some lesser ones like Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, Samsung Galaxy A6+ eats dust. 

The camera is perhaps the best thing about Samsung Galaxy A6, and it doesn’t get much different here with a single sensor now being replaced by dual sensors with the primary sensor being 16 MP (f/1.7) and secondary being 5 MP (f/1.9) with LED flash. The presence of two sensors makes Galaxy A6+ portrait mode capable. The camera performs the best at the price with best colour accuracy and dynamic range. The sensor taps on a lot of details but exposure gets misplaced at times which can be corrected with a tap to focus. There is some noise in low-light shots but they are still admirable. Moreover, the A6+ can intelligently detect objects or scenes being shot, and optimise camera settings accordingly, to get the ‘best’ shot.  We like the camera on A6+ in all, it is probably the best camera in the range right now with some micro issues, that you can look over like the colour temperature and some absurd bokeh shots at times.

The front camera is brighter with a 24 MP (f/1.9) coupled with a LED flash, and the selfies are just stunning. The front flash accompanies you through dark times and It never let us down, It gets super bright making it virtually impossible to distinguish selfies taken in daylight to ones taken at night. The big sensor keeps all the details, intact with some reasonable noise. Samsung Galaxy A6+ as a camera is quite excelling

On the software side, Android Oreo 8.0 is the in charge, with Samsung Experience 9.0 skin on top. We see a ton of redundant apps from Samsung and Google for the same thing, and now some of the apps by Microsoft have also laid permanent claim to the device. We can’t let go of the word, ‘bloated’ here. The best you can do is put all the apps in a folder, forget about it and smile. Nonetheless, we felt no hiccups while tinkering around and playing with Samsung Experience, It is still responsive and fluid like before.

There is a Non-Removable, Li-Ion 3500 mAh battery at play here, which lasts for a day at best. Samsung has had a rough time in the past with batteries so we don’t really blame them for playing safe but compared to other smartphones with the same amount of battery, Galaxy A6+ tend to last less, maybe this can be attributed to software or the general chemistry of Samsung batteries is different. A MicroUSB 2.0 port sits at the bottom for charging, yeah, no USB-C here, additionally, there is no fast charging.

The speaker on the A6+ is identical to one on the A6, so there is not much to compare here in sound quality as well. The speaker is reasonably loud but has a bit shrill in Its signature. There is a dedicated microphone for active noise cancellation during calls, which we found out to be pretty effective during our testing. The sound output via headphones is a whole different story with Dolby Atmos. The sound quality, staging and clarity are just as we’d expect from a Dolby Atmos capable device and we are quite delighted. Samsung hasn’t mentioned any IP rating for the device, so we assume none and advise you to keep It way far from liquids and dust. The panel is an OLED panel, has Samsung’s always-on features where you don’t have to wake the smartphone to see time, notifications and other basic stuff. It makes life somewhat easy.

  • 4 GB RAM | 64 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 256 GB
  • 5.8 inch Full HD+ Display 1080p
  • Back Camera: 16MP + 2MP Dual Camera
  • Front Camera: 16MP
  • 3000mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Colors

Best Price ₹19999



Brief Review:

Huawei P20 Lite amazes with the beautiful display and looks. It features a 5.84-inch full view display with an aspect ratio of 19:9 and FHD+ resolution. The display has sharp colours and you will not find any issue viewing it even in the bright outdoor light. It has a metal frame in between front and back and a 2.5D curved glass back with glittery textures that make it look superior to any other phone in this price segment. You would like to use a back cover as the glass is a fingerprint magnet.

On the Performance front, it is powered by a Kirin 659 processor and 4GB of RAM. Kirin 659 is the processor seen on Honor 7x, Honor 9 Lite and Honor 9i. It is a powerful processor which coupled with 4GB of RAM can handle all the multitasking and gaming you do with it, but lags way behind the Redmi Note 5 Pro which has a Snapdragon 636 scoring around 110000 on the Antutu while the Huawei P20 lite just manages to score a little above 75000. So definitely, Redmi Note 5 Pro will offer better performance.

Coming to the most talked about feature, the camera. It has a dual rear camera with 12 MP and 2MP sensor which clicks fantastic images and the camera app has various modes panorama, HDR, pro, beauty, slow motion and a few more. It has bokeh effect works perfectly fine and in the daylight, the camera has decent performance in the price range. You will see some noise when you zoom into the images but that should not affect you much.The rear camera supports 1080p video recording and we believe it should be extended to 4K through software updates to make it stand out. The low light shots are also good with no major shortcoming.

For the selfie, we have a 16MP sensor that clicks beautiful and sharp images in all lighting conditions. The camera quality and performance is not outstanding but reasonably good for the price. It has software features and beauty algorithms that very well recognizes and modifies the colour temperature, skin tone to make the photo look perfect. The software algorithms are also used to provide bokeh effects in the image.

P20 Lite comes with a 64 GB onboard storage which can be expanded up to 128 GB using a hybrid sim slot. It runs of EMUI 8.0 which is a custom skin build over Android 8.1 Oreo. There is some bloatware and overall the software experience is decent and Huawei has added some new features to its EMUI layer. 

It houses a 3000 mAH battery but weighs just 145 gm and only 7.4 mm thick. The battery can power the phone for around one complete day. There is no IP rating on this phone so you would have to keep it protected from water and dust damage. It comes with a fast charger and can charge the battery from 0 to 100 percent in just 90 minutes.

It has a fingerprint sensor on the back and also supports face unlocking via the front camera. It comes with dual Bluetooth that allows you to connect to two Bluetooth devices simultaneously. Overall, a decent and complete phone for the price but faces crisp competition from the likes of Redmi Note 5 Pro and Nokia 7 Plus.

Brief Review:

Its 2018 and Notch-iness is all over the mobile world, thanks to Apple for being such a force. (Phew.) Oppo launched F7 in March 2018 and added one more device to the list of Androids sporting the infamous iPhone X notch design. The smartphone is all about modern design with bezels pushed to the ends and that cute little notch up top, guess what, Its looks very much like the iPhone X. The smartphone has a giant 6.2- inch, LTPS IPS LCD display with a 1080 x 2280 pixels resolution, packing a pixel density of ~405 PPI, we don’t need to say now that the display is just gorgeous. Even with that giant display the smartphone is just 7.8mm thick and weighs 158 grams, and fits comfortably in hands. There are some bezels up top and bottom. The display is protected by a Gorilla Glass 5. The build is fairly solid, a plastic unibody design. The notch houses the selfie camera and a bunch of other sensors.

Under the hood, Oppo F7 has a MediaTek Helio P60 running the cause. Helio P60 appears to be a very capable SoC on paper 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. To serve all your gaming needs there’s a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU, which is not as good as Adreno on Snapdragons but gets the job done. Oppo F7 comes in two variants with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage and the other one having 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. The specifications are really impressive and give good vibes about this smartphone.

The smartphone runs on Android Oreo out of the box with Oppo’s age-old ColorOS skin on top, which just doesn’t make the cut. When put under tests, the Oppo F7 scored as follows - On GeekBench 4, 1533 in single core drives and 5845 in multi-core. On AnTuTu, the Oppo F7 scores around 137000. The smartphone overpowers Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5 Pro in both GeekBench and Antutu. The smartphone has power and responsiveness, It works smoothly in everyday tasks and gaming isn’t a problem as well.

Talking about cameras, as Oppo calls Itself a camera ‘expert’, the device features a single 16MP, a f/1.8 sensor with LED flash at the back and a large 25MP,f/2.0 sensor at the front for selfies. Oppo seems to have really shown some confidence in single sensor setup this time as the results show, the camera outperforms Vivo V9, another notch-featuring contemporary. The low-light shots are great thanks to the wider aperture on the Oppo F7. The story continues with the selfie camera as well. The shots are rich, vibrant and well balanced. As there’s no secondary rear sensor, Oppo uses software tricks for the much-touted bokeh effect, which as you would have guessed doesn’t hit the spot.

The smartphone packs a 3400mAh battery, which is pretty average now-days, we are devastated that this neo-modern smartphone from Oppo shows no signs of fast charging, hell there’s MicroUSB 2.0 instead of USB-C. Thankfully, there’s a headphone jack. And to your caution, there’s no IP rating on this one so keep it as far from liquids as possible. Thanks to the power efficient chipset, Oppo F7 battery backup is great. With medium usage, you can expect 1.5 days of backup on a single charge. With light usage, it will last for even 2 days.

The smartphone is priced at ₹ 21,990 and It is not the best deal around but It is certainly one of the satisfying ones at the price. Oppo is giving a gorgeous smartphone with latest features at the decent price. Go for it if you need a gorgeous looking smartphone with good cameras, a powerful processor at around 20k.

  • 6.3 inch Full HD+ Display 1080p
  • Back Camera: 16MP + 5MP Dual Camera
  • Front Camera: 24MP
  • 3260mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Gold, Black Colors

Best Price ₹22990



Brief Review:

Vivo V9 is the latest smartphone launched by Vivo on 23rd March 2018. Vivo has always been focused towards the selfie camera, but this time, in addition to the Selfie Camera, Vivo has come up with many new features and yeah the notch as well. In terms of design, V9 looks mesmerizingly beautiful with a bezel-less display of 6.3 Inches Full HD+ display having 1080 x 2280 resolution. It is a FullView Display panel with19:9 aspect ratio (90% Body to Screen Ratio) and a notch at the top similar to iPhone X, but is smaller and narrower.

Talking about the specifications, Vivo V9 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 which scores approximately 67000 on the Antutu Benchmark Score. It has 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 256 GB with a dedicated SD card slot and Dual sim usage.

In the camera department, Vivo V9 has a rear dual sensor of 16MP and 5MP which is placed vertically on the back. The Rear Camera produces perfect bokeh shots and uses AI techniques to improvise on the images. The dual camera has a wide angle lens so you can capture more in a single shot.  You can even shoot first and focus later, transforming every photo into an artistic masterpiece.

The front camera is a 24 MP sensor and reflects the inclination of Vivo towards Selfie, the selfie also supports depth/bokeh effect using Artifical Intelligence(AI) .V9 comes with AI Face Beauty that uses Machine Learning to find users' age, skin tone, sex and other features to "truly represent the person beauty". It also features a Selfie Lighting feature as was seen in iPhone X. So you will never be short of a great camera and selfie images anytime. It also has AR stickers for selfies which is just like Snapchat filters.

Vivo V9 also puts emphasis AI Smart Engine that is responsible to handle storage and app launching based on user behavior and AI Attention Scanning that lowers the volume of notification when the user is looking on the display. In terms of unlocking, it comes with a fingerprint sensor on the back and also supports face unlocking that again uses AI and Machine Learning (AI Face Access) that improves the accuracy of the Face Unlock Feature. Both the methods work smoothly and have very good accuracy.

On the Software front, Vivo V9 runs on Funtouch OS 4.0 which is a custom skin built over Android Oreo 8.1. The UI is clean and comes with many software features to ease your day to day activities. The battery of Vivo V9 is rated at 3290mAH and given the big screen size it lasts only for a day. Fast Charging is supported in Vivo V9 with the mobile getting fully charged in less than 1.5 hours  The battery is not a huge one to keep the check on the thickness and weight which just measure 7.9 mm and 150gm respectively. Vivo V9 is not water resistant or dust proof as it does not have any IP rating.

So if you are looking for a great camera setup and Fun of AI in your life, you can go for it, there is only one small disappointment that it runs 2 years old Snapdragon 626 which has been preceded by Snapdragon 630 and 636. Still, the overall performance is good and you won't face any lags while multi-tasking or gaming.

It is available both on Flipkart and Amazon at 22990 with different offers which can be checked on the links above. Overall, it is a great looking smartphone with excellent cameras. Go for it if your budget is around 25000.

Launch Offer on Flipkart: Flipkart is offering extra 2000 off on exchange. Plus, 5% instant discount (Rs. 1150) if you pay with HDFC cards. 0% Interest EMI also available.

Launch Offer on Amazon: Amazon is also offering extra 2000 off on exchange. Plus, 5% cashback in Amazon Pay if you with any credit or debit card. 0% Interest EMI also available.

Brief Review:

Say whatever, Vivo is one of the fast players in the mobile space and since 2017 was the genesis year for bezel-less smartphones, Vivo couldn’t be kept out of the circuit for long. So here’s Vivo V7+ launched in September, 2017. The V7+ builds upon the Vivo V7, in many ways.

Starting with a big 5.99 inch display at a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels, at 18:9 ratio that gives a mundane density of ~269 PPI. Vivo says that the display is protected by Gorilla Glass 4, with nearly no side bezels but some at the top and bottom, housing the camera and speakers. Vivo V7+ is quite thin at just 7.7mm and weighs around 160 grams. Not so heavy for such a large smartphone.

Looking at the smartphone, you won’t get the ultimate premium appeal, credits to plastic unibody build. The 2.5D curved screen glass gives it some premium touch though. The IPS LCD is not that impressive considering the price of the smartphone and that’s probably the elephant in all our disappointments with this smartphone. What’s no less hurting is that the smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 450 SoC, featuring 8 Cortex A53s clocked at 1.8GHz. To handle graphics, there’s an Adreno 506 onboard which is definitely not a gamer’s delight, but yeah Its quite okay for casual gaming on Android.

One thing about which we don’t know to be happy or perplexed about is the RAM. Vivo has packed 4GB of RAM in this device, which is quite not equalling to the Snapdragon 450 chipset. (Why Vivo?) Vivo V7+ has 64GB of onboard storage and is expandable via MicroSD. The smartphone is running on Android 7.1.2 Nougat out of the box - with no sight of Oreo update. And to lower us this smartphone more into Its grave, Vivo’s iOS-Ripoff Android skin called the FunTouch 3.2 is all over the place.

Let’s talk numbers, On GeekBench 4.1, Vivo V7+ scores 767 on single core drives and 3912 on multi-core tests. On AnTuTu, Vivo V7+ scores 57791, which is well below Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 4 and Note 5’s score 61616. The Redmi Note 5 Pro is on a different level with a score of above 100000.

Coming to cameras, because Vivo calls Itself market ‘leaders’ in camera, the Vivo V7+ boasts a 16MP, f/2.0 rear sensor with 1-micron pixels. On the front, we have a gigantic 24MP, f/2.0 sensor with LED flash. The rear camera performs well is daylight conditions and takes pictures with plenty of details. The performance under low-light is decent as well.  The selfie camera takes excellent pictures. There's beautify mode as always which makes you look better.

Apart from that, we have rear-mounted fingerprint scanner above the Vivo branding. The smartphone has a 3225mAh juice pack which is okay-ish but not impressive as the smartphone runs a 6-inch IPS LCD display which is bound to burn the fuel pretty fast. Thank the lord, we have a 3.5mm jack. There’s no fast charging, as Snapdragon 450 isn’t enabled for that, so embrace the USB2.0. There’s no IP rating, so if you buy V7+ please keep it safe away from liquids.

Priced at around Rs. 20000, we think it is a bit overpriced. With Xiaomi spoiling the crowd with dirt cheap smartphones with superb features and internals, it is difficult to justify this pricing. Still, if you are a selfie lover and need a bezel-less display phone then this is a decent option.

Brief Review:

Infinix after the success of budget smartphones Infinix Note 4 and Infinix Hot 4 Pro in the Indian market, has launched a mid-range smartphone Infinix Zero 5. As is evident from the specs, it has everything that a phone user looks for. Let's find out how it delivers to what the specs promise in our Infinix Zero 5 review.

Infinix Zero 5 comes with a stylish look and grip in the hand, it has a 5.98-inch Full HD display which is protected by a  2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The colours are vivid and the display has good viewing capability even at extreme angles. On the design side, Infinix Zero 5 has a unibody metal design which looks sturdy and stable.

As with all the phones launched in 2017 that got a thumbs up in the various review, Infinix Zero 5 has also put a special focus on the camera quality. The rear camera is a dual camera setup which is a combination of 12MP Wide Angle and 13MP Telephoto lens which has f2.0 aperture with 2x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom. The camera supports various mode like portrait, panorama, professional etc. In our initial camera review of Infinix Zero 5, we found the image quality to be brilliant in the daylight, the colours are punchier, natural and delivers well to the expectations but in the low light the camera struggled a bit and we could see some minor noise in the images.

The front camera of Infinix Zero 5 is a 16MP shooter with front flash and supports bokeh mode, the front camera also delivers well and clicks clear selfies with good colour reproductions. Both the front and rear camera support video up to 1080p but the video as well struggle a bit in the low light condition. The rear camera in Infinix Zero 5 supports OIS which works perfectly fine and the video is not shaky when shooting while moving.

Talking about the performance review of the device, Infinix Zero 5 is powered by Octa Core 2.6GHz Mediatek Helio P25 MT6757 Chipset. The Antutu benchmark score of the device is around 66000 which is similar to benchmark scores seen in Lenovo P2, Mi A1. This MediaTek chipset is not the best in the market and there are better options available in Qualcomm Snapdragon processor range. It looks like Infinix looks to add a lot of things into the phone by compromising a few points on the processing power side. We did a few initial tests and review with the gaming on the Infinix Zero 5, but to our surprise, given the MediaTek chipset, there was no lag or frame drops or heating issues observed. Looks like Infinix has managed the internal software and heat dissipation efficiently.

Zero 5 comes with 6GB of RAM, that makes multitasking a breeze. It has internal storage of 64GB which can be expanded with a dedicated micro SD card of up to 128GB, along with dual sim usage.

Inifiniz Zero 5 comes with XOS which is based on Android 7.0 Nougat but the company has promised an upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo. In XOS, the company has added inbuilt features like an anti-theft system, split screen mode and smart interactions. The software is clean with some limited bloatware, the UI is fast and easy to use. The fingerprint sensor is on the back which is quick and accurate, takes about half a second to unlock.

The battery size of Infinix Zero 5 is rated at 4350 mAH, it is huge and easily lasts for more than a day with normal usage. It comes with a 18W fast charger which is capable for a very quick charge of a full battery in around 1.5 hours and USB type C which assists fast charging and fast data transfer. Infinix Zero 5 does not have IP rating and is not IP 67 or IP 68 certified so it is not waterproof and should be used accordingly.

One thing that Infinix Zero 5 misses from the trend is the Bezel-less display, we have seen phones like Honor 9i (Check full review), which is one brilliantly crafted smartphone, priced in the similar range coming with the bezel-less display. Zero 5 though looks good but at Suggest Phone we think bezel-less display would have raised the level of looks. The company would have surely thought of this and maybe restricted itself to save the cost for other features added to the phone.

Overall in our first complete review of Infinix Zero 5, we found the smartphone has a tradeoff between performance, camera and looks. The phone performs decently well in all the departments and so if anyone is looking for a well-settled phone, with a metal body, huge RAM for multitasking, fast charging and big screen, you can go for this. The phone will go on sale from 22nd November and will be exclusively available on Flipkart. It comes with some of the launch offers which can be checked here.

With the launch of Inifnix Zero 5, Infinix has also launched Infinix QuietX (XE05) Headset with Mic and Infinix Quiet 2 (XE02) Headset with Mic which are focussed on noise reduction with some great new features.

  • Back Camera: 12MP + 8MP Dual setup
  • Front Camera: 16MP

Brief Review:

Motorola Moto X4 was released at an event at IFA in Berlin in September and the phone is set to launch in India on 13th November. With Moto X4, Motorola makes a comeback with its X series phones in the mid-range segment. The phone looks stunning, has a powerful hardware inside and many new features.

Though we call Moto X4 as a mid-range phone its looks and design are extremely premium. The smartphone features a 5.2 inch IPS LCD display and has glass on both front and back and a metal frame in between but lacks a bezel-less display.  The front of the Moto X4 which is protected by a Corning Gorilla glass comes with a fingerprint sensor at the bottom and a front camera of 16 MP at the top. The back of the phone hosts a dual camera setup of 12 MP + 8 MP which protrudes little out from the back panel. 

Motorola Moto X4 comes with an IP68 certified tag, which can keep in Dust and waterproof for up to 1.5 Meters and 30 minutes. Ohh, and one other great news about Moto X4 is the Stock Android experience, currently working with Android 7.1(Nougat) and a planned upgrade to Android 8.0 (Oreo).

In terms of the performance factor, Moto X4 comes powered by 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Chipset, with an Antutu benchmark score of 70,000, a 10% increase over the Snapdragon 625 seen in many smartphones like Mi A1, Moto G5S Plus and Honor 9i. Moto X4 has 4GB of RAM and internal storage of 64 GB which is expandable up to 2TB, so memory and RAM are never going to be an issue. The performance is top notch and no lag experience whatsoever could be seen in our initial reviews.

Motorola Moto X4 had a lot of rumor on the camera specifications which Motorola calls Advanced Dual Rear Camera System, capable of clicking Stunning Portraits and Wide Angle landscapes. The rear camera is a dual camera setup of 12MP + 8 MP, the 12MP sensor uses Dual Autofocus Pixel technology to deliver crisp results in any lighting conditions, and the 8 MP gives a 120 Degree field of view. The rear camera setup has a Dual LED flash and can shoot videos at 4K resolution. The camera is slow and takes time to process the images. Maybe this will be fixed by Motorola with a software update.

The front camera setup of Moto X4 has a wide-angle 16 MP sensor with a LED flash with an adaptive low light mode for perfect selfie even in low light conditions. 

The camera software comes with various features named as Selective Focus(Bokeh) which adds a blur to background or foreground of images while keeping the main subject in clear focus and Selective black and white which allows changing the background or foreground to black and white with the main subject in full color.

Moto X4 packs a 3,000 mAH battery, with turbocharging capability. The battery would last for around a day with normal usage. Also, the phone is sensor-rich and comes with all needed sensors like Compass, Gyroscope etc. 

Apart from the regular specifications, Motorola has added some new taste to Moto X4, which comes with Bluetooth 5.0. With this upgrade, Moto X4 can stream music wirelessly to up to 4 Bluetooth speakers and headphones, whose volumes can be controlled independently.

Moto X4 is a Flipkart exclusive device in India. The 3GB-32GB variant is available at Rs. 20999 and a 4GB-64GB variant is available at Rs.22999. We think the higher variant offers more value for money so you should buy that.

One small disappointment that Moto X4 has that it does not have Radio in it. So you cannot tune in to FM with Moto X4.

Final Verdict, With all these features under its hood, Moto X4 looks like a very promising Mid-range phone, capable of redefining the market as Motorola did with its budget phones. If you are confused about color, then go for sterling blue. Black and Blue both look stunning but we all see a lot of black phones, sterling blue looks something different and is our favorite.

9. Oppo F5

Features

  • 4 GB RAM | 32 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 256 GB
  • 6 inch Full HD+ Display 1080p
  • Back Camera: 16MP
  • Front Camera: 20MP
  • 3200mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Colors

Best Price ₹17990



Brief Review:

Oppo F5 is the next mid-range smartphone to be launched in India by Oppo in the F series. This phone is available for pre-order from Flipkart and will go on open sale from 8th November 2017

The latest phones in the mid-range segment have seen a bezel-less display and Oppo F5 is being seen following the trend. It comes with a 6-inch Full HD+,  bezel-less display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 called full-view display. The screen has thin borders and the back is curved along the edges making it comfortable to hold. With the power and volumes button well within reach, the ergonomics of Oppo F5 stands perfectly.

Oppo F5 is powered by an Octa-Core MediaTek MT6763T processor. The Antutu score is about 64000 equivalent to as seen in Honor 9i. The phone comes with a 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory. We might also see a 6GB/64GB model launched by Oppo.

Coming to the camera performance of the Oppo F5, the primary camera is a 16 MP sensor with LED flash, though the image quality was crisp, a lot of competitor phones have come up with a dual rear camera, and not holding a dual camera could be somewhat negative for the Oppo. While the unique selling point of Oppo F5 is the front camera, where it holds a 20 MP sensor and the company claims that its AI-powered camera software can recognize your facial features to click the best photo. Oppo F5 also has a portrait mode to add bokeh effects to the selfies and the initial impression of the camera are impressive. The handset, though, does not support 4K video recording. 

Check Out the list of Best Camera Phones under 15000.

The gaming performance of Oppo F5 is smooth and no lag or heating issues were observed during our initial testing. It runs Android 7.1(Nougat) with ColorOS V3.2 on top which allows using two apps side by side. Its supports a battery of 3200mAH which will last just more than a day in case of normal usage. We believe the reason behind this battery size is to keep phone light in weight with Oppo F5 weighing 152gm with 7.5mm of thickness.

Also, the phone supports dual sim (Nano + Nano) with dedicated micro SD card slot expandable up to 256GB. The fingerprint sensor on the back is of little oval shape and works very smoothly. However, the phone comes with micro USB and not the Type C.

The Overall performance of Oppo F5 is up to the mark and sleek and slim design makes it look attractive but we still feel that its a little overpriced considering Honor 9i and back and upcoming Honor 7X. The selfie lover and Oppo fans might just overlook the price. You can buy Oppo F5 from offline retail outlets or from Flipkart.

Honor 9i has dual camera setup on both front and back, has a bezel-less display and is available at less cost than Oppo F5. As of date,  we think it might be just the perfect phone for you. Read full review of Honor 9i here

Brief Review:

Asus has started the rollout of Zenfone 4 series with dual front camera phones for selfie lovers. Selfie craze has gone up exponentially in last few years and now we are seeing front cameras which are better than back cameras. Here we are taking a look at Asus Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro.

The USP of the device is the dual front camera setup with flash. We have a 24MP sensor with a 5MP sensor which helps to give a wide-angle view and depth effect to the selfies. The 24MP camera is actually a 12MP dual pixel camera that is why they call is a 24MP camera. There is a portrait mode option in camera app using which you can blur the background. There is a flash on the front as well which helps in low light selfies. The front camera setup is capable of recording 4K videos as well. Overall the front camera setup performs well and takes some beautiful shots. We tried the portrait mode and pictures look good but the edges are not sharp. We think this is a software issue and Asus should be able to fix it with a software update.

There is a single 16MP camera on the back with a flash. The camera performance is fine. The images are sharp and detailed. 

Regarding the looks, Asus has done a good job. The Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro looks very premium because of its sleek look and beautiful AMOLED display. The phone is less than 7mm thick and feels very good in the hand. The disadvantage of the sleek phone is average battery capacity and here we have a 3000mAh battery. The battery should last a day on a single charge. Plus you have fast charging as well which can charge the phone in less than 2 hours.

The rest is pretty standard for phones in this price range. The processor is Snapdragon 625 which we have seen in a lot of phones this year. The chip is very efficient and performs well so no complaints regarding that. We have 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage. Storage can be increased with a MicroSD card but the sim slot is hybrid so you can put 2 sim cards or 1 sim and 1 MicroSD card. 

Overall Zenfone 4 Selfie Pro is a phone for selfie lovers. If you do not like to take selfies then there is not much exciting in this device. Other options with similar specs and lower price are Mi A1, Moto G5S Plus, Redmi Note 4, Lenovo P2.
