Brief Review:

OnePlus took the entire market by a huge storm when it first released it's OnePlus One in the year 2014. It carried the best in class specs. A great operating system. Last but definitely not the least the price tag of $299. That was the One plus Mantra over the years. Best in class specs, at half the price of the flagships of the market.

Well, over the years since then the price has obviously gone up due to the use of premium materials and latest specs. Fast forward to 2019 sadly, you don’t get to buy it at the old less than $300 price tag. But what you get in return is a phone that’s filled with the latest and greatest spec to the brim and like their promise at half the price of a similarly specced flagship.

So has OnePlus finally settled going against their “Never Settle” motto. Or is it still going to be the flagship killer that it has always promised in delivering? This is the short review of the OnePlus 7 covering all the details about the smartphone. Like we always say that if a phone checks the 5 boxes it a great one. In no particular order: Build and design, Display, Battery life, Camera and finally Performance.

OnePlus once was the pioneer of bringing best in class design and improvised with every phone they had released up till the 3T. Right from the OnePlus 5 lineup, OnePlus has sort of settled with design choices that just works and resonates highly with what the other players have to offer. The same goes for the OnePlus 7 series.

The OnePlus 7 is basically a OnePlus 6T with new color options. Gorilla glass 5 to the front and back. An aluminum frame holding the body together with the alert slider and power button to the right. Secondary noise cancellation mic to the top. Volume slider to the left. Type C port, Dual SIM card slot, primary microphone, and primary speaker to the bottom. Why do I say, primary speaker? This is because after months of asking OnePlus finally doubles the earpiece as a secondary stereo speaker output. The icing on the cake it's tuned with Dolby Atmos.

Overall the design that the OnePlus 7 has to offer is not just familiar but safe too and people who have used the OnePlus 6T will definitely find it at home. Now for a year, OnePlus has believed in delivering the best FHD+ display in the market. Well, this belief of theirs is most definitely seen on the OnePlus 7. Much like the design cues of the 6T the display used is also the exact same.

To begin with, OnePlus 7 like we said before of a basically a 6T, but one steroid. The 7 has a 6.41-inch optic AMOLED display. It has a dewdrop notch and runs at a resolution of 2340 x 1080p. The panel is again very similar to that of the one plus 6T. Colors are punchy and vivid. Whites are white and blacks are deep. There is absolutely nothing to complain about with this display. If we were to describe the display in 2 words it would be “on point”.  This is one of the best displays that you can get at this price point.

OnePlus has always offered the best-in-class battery life thank the optimization of their OxygenOS, more on this later. With the 6T last year one plus had already bettered on their great battery life. OnePlus 7 gets the exact same battery from the OnePlus 6T. This means that the OnePlus 7 comes equipped with the same 3700mAH battery and you can easily expect an easy one-day battery life if you’re a power user. A day and a half if you’re a light user. This can be charged at 5V and 4A with the in-box WARP charger. This is pretty fast and is great as you don’t have to pay extra for the charger, unlike some other brands.

Now let us go to the camera department, This is one department that has stopped OnePlus from being called a true flagship killer since forever. So, the question is do they finally achieve it this time? Let’s first get the specs out of the way. The primary sensor on the OnePlus 7 is a 48MP F1.6 Sony IMX 586 lens which is assisted by a 5MP F2.4 depth sensor. The depth sensor is solely for portrait shots and nothing else. The selfie shooter is a 16MP F2.0 Sony IMX 471 shooter.

The primary sensor is simply amazing lots of details in daylight and a pretty good performer in the night. All in all, the picture’s that this camera takes will definitely be great. The selfie shooter is no slouch either. It’s just what one would expect of a 16MP shooter. Lots of details collected with slight beautification. You will definitely not be disappointed with what the camera on OnePlus 7 offers for a price tag of under 35000.

One area where OnePlus has dominated the smartphone market is in providing the absolute best smartphone performance. This continues even with the OnePlus 7. If you are even remotely interested in this company and have been following it for a while a few things will be very clear to you. Specs packed to the brim. A Software experience that rivals the very likes of stock android themselves.

The OnePlus 7 comes with the latest silicon for androids in the form of the Snapdragon 855. This is coupled with 6 GB RAM with 128 GB storage and 8 GB RAM with 256 GB storage variants. Now the already fast speed from the 855 and the behemoth amount of RAM is coupled with the use of UFS 3.0 based storage which is touted to be 2X faster than UFS 2.1. All of that RAM power gives the OnePlus 7 series an overall AnTuTu score at a whopping 361038. This is the highest any non-gaming android phone has ever scored.  

Now, if you are reading this article you must definitely, be knowing of the OxygenOS UI that runs the software side of things. Personally, we feel that OxygenOS is much better than Stock vanilla android. This is so as the UI is very close to stock Android with very few thoughtful upgrades. Performance on the 7 series is simply going to be butter smooth. Overall, OnePlus 7 is still the undisputed champion when it comes to performance.

Let’s take a peek into the price before wrapping things up. OnePlus 7 comes in 2 variants: 6GB RAM with 128GB storage that will cost rupees 32999 and the top end variant with 8GB RAM with 256 GB storage comes at rupees 37999.

This has been the very first time for OnePlus or any other company that successor, the OnePlus 7 is actually cheaper than the predecessor the 6T. If you all follow our blog regularly we had said in our Pixel 3A and 3A XL review that it’s going to get a tough competition from the OnePlus 7 series. Guess what we were damn right. Yes, it’s true that the 3A series has a much better camera than the 7 series. But there is way more to a smartphone than just the camera. The overall package that you get with both the 7 series phone is simply second to none.

Yes, the OnePlus 7 does have its shortcoming and yes it no more the $300 smartphone that we adored. The camera isn’t the best. The design isn’t groundbreaking. But once you look past these, the phone behind it is a solid buy especially considering its price point. We, are pretty sure that you will not be disappointed with the phone until next time considering the complete package this phone has to offer.

Brief Review:

Samsung Galaxy A70 is an under 30000 smartphone from Samsung after it redefined its own phones for the under 10000 and under 20000 budget with the launch of Samsung Galaxy A20 and Samsung Galaxy A50. Let us check out how Samsung A70 does in this brief review of its features and specifications.

Samsung Galaxy A70 comes with a big 6.7-inch AMOLED display which is bright and has one of the best color reproduction. It has a Full HD Plus resolution and is perfect for media consumption like watching movies, playing games and much more. You will not feel a tinge of lack in the display quality. Coming to the build quality, the back in the build of polycarbonate with gradient colors design. Surely the phone looks good with a notch display and a colorful back but the polycarbonate build is a little hit comparing the market standard of glass build.

Coming to the processor powering the Galaxy A70, we get the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 which is built on 11nm process and is a power efficient chipset. The 675 has a top the clock speed of 2.0Ghz and is the only Snapdragon 600 series processor which is built on the Kryo 460 architecture with a configuration of 6 Cortex-A55 and 2 Cortex-A76 cores. This is complemented by the Adreno 612 on the GPU making the 675 an overall powerful processor.

This is the same processor we saw on the Redmi Note 7 Pro. With Snapdragon 675 you get 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The phone scores around 170979 on the AnTuTu benchmarks and promises of a good overall performance. The multitasking and gaming performance showed no lag and we could use the phone smoothly.  You can expand the inbuilt storage up to 512 GB using a dedicated SD card slot.  Gaming offers a good experience and you can easily play at the maximum graphics setting.

Let us now catch up with the Camera specifications and review the quality of images the Galaxy A70 captures. It has a triple rear camera with the 32MP primary sensor, 8 MP ultra wide sensor and a 5 MP depth sensor. On the front camera, we have a single 32 MP sensor. Both the front and rear camera work great and capture images with great detailing, sharpness, and colors are brilliant. The 32MP sensor by defaults captures pictures in 12 MP to keep the size in control but you can manually switch to 32 MP to get more detailing. The portrait shots are perfect and you can control the intensity of the blur. 

The camera struggles a bit in the low light and Samsung needs for some improvement in this domain. Overall the camera is a good pick for the under 30k budget. 

Coming to the software, the A70 comes with a much refined One UI which is one of the best software from Samsung and is based on Android Pie. The software is a cleaner and lighter version of the Samsung UI ever launched. You will surely find a good software experience on Galaxy A70.

Let us talk about the battery, on the A70 where we get a big 4500 mAh capacity which gives a battery backup of around 1.5 days easily. You also get a 25 W charger bundles in the box and a Type C port for charging. The phone supports fast charging and can quickly charge the phone in around 100 minutes. 

The smartphones come with an always-on display which is one of the flagship features in Samsung phone. There is an in display fingerprint sensor which works quite accurately and is fast enough. There is no IP rating on this phone so you need to protect the phone from water and dust. The phone is splash proof to some extent. 

Among other features, the phone also supports Samsung Pay so you can easily pay at POS without carrying your credit and debit cards. 

Overall the Samsung Galaxy A70 is a great smartphone when considering the Samsung brand trust, great design, good camera, big internal storage, and a powerful battery backup with fast charging. The processor for the price range is decent but can handle most of the tasks easily. Owing to the OnePlus 7 launch, the expectation of the phone stands at the more powerful processor which somewhat lowers the value for money score of the phone. 

If you have a budget of around 30000 and are looking for a Samsung phone, the Galaxy A70 can fulfill your requirement.

Brief Review:

Oppo is no stranger to the Indian market as it has quite the reputation especially when it comes to mobile phone photography. Oppo has been trying to bring great flagship grade photography into its upper midrange phones for quite some time now. Finally, with its latest upper-midrange phone Oppo the F11 pro it looks seriously into changing mobile photography in a budget. Read on to find out how does the F11 Pro fair in the vision of photography that Oppo plans on changing.

To start things off we begin with the internals and the performance of the phone. At the heart of the phone lies the decently powerful MediaTek Helio P70. The Helio P70 packs a pretty good punch. This is because P70 is an 8-core chip based on 12nm manufacturing technology. This caries a combination of 4 low power efficient A-53 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz. and 4 high powered A-73 cores clocked at 2.2 GHz. Helio P70 on F11 Pro is a bit disappointing because phones like Realme 3 which are priced under 10000 have the same chipset and phones like Note 7 Pro comes with Snapdragon 675 and are priced much lower than F11 Pro.

Apart from the processor, the phone comes in only one variant which is the 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. There is support for memory card expansion up to 256GB however it's shared with the secondary SIM slot as it’s a Hybrid slot

When it comes to design, Gorgeous is the word that defines F11 pro. The phone is available in 2 colors and Oppo refers to them, as Thunder black and Aurora Green. The back of the phone is made out of glass and is basically a gradient finish. The glass curves at the back of the phone which results in great ergonomics.

The dual 48MP + 5MP cameras sit at the back of the phone right above the fingerprint sensor in this tiny strip which basically houses the 2-camera sensor and an LED. The front of the phone is completely clean with an extremely thin chin and earpiece tucked right up on the tiny upper bezel of the phone. The only let down is the inclusion of a micro-USB port at the bottom. This is a disappointment as a Type C port would bring this phone to 2019 standards. However, the overall build of the phone is top notch. Which reminds us of notches as the F11 pro has none, thus bringing us to display.

The front panel is a beautiful 6.5-inch FHD+ 2340X1080 pixels notchless LCD display. The quality of the display is great as it packs vibrant and accurate colors with great clarity. The display at a peak brightness of 480 nits is not the best in class in terms of brightness is definitely best in class when it comes to screen to body ratio. This is because the display features a massive 90.90% screen to body ratio. This is the highest screen to body ratio seen on any smartphone in this price range. Such a high screen to body ratio is achieved due to the absence of any sort of notch on the display. So does that also mean that there is no front-facing camera on the front of the phone?

The answer to that is both Yes and No. This is because the F11 Pro does pack a selfie camera however it’s not on the display of the phone but in a camera slider mechanism which is mainly seen on many expensive phones. This results in giving the phone that beautiful almost all screen display. Oppo has simply knocked the display out of the competition with the popup front camera mechanism. The use of the pop-up camera not only gives a higher screen to body ratio but a premium experience that is received using only high-end smartphones.

Staying on the camera front. The F11 pro has a total of 3 cameras. The rear cameras are a combination of a 48MP F1.79 shooter which is assisted by a 5MP F2.4 depth sensor. The pop-up selfie camera is a 16MP F2.0 shooter.

The main focus of the rear camera is the ability to shoot “Brilliant portrait in low light”. These are the exact marketing terms used by Oppo. Successfully the F11 pro proves it too. The 48MP primary shooter's large pixels help click pictures as it captures lots of light coming in. The great sensor is assisted by an AI algorithm for optimal photo experience.

Now as we know that in low light the ISO of the camera tends to shoot high to let in wore light and this results in blurry photos due to lack of stabilization. However, the F11 pro comes with a closed loop VCM ball bearing to smoothen out any shaky hands while shooting pictures in low light. Think of it as a kind of image stabilizing mechanism. This combined with the 5MP depth sensor results in great portrait in low light just like Oppo promises. The 48MP sensor is also able to capture Super Night Scene which is similar if not of the same level of what Google has to offer in its night mode.

The 16MP Pop-camera or Rising Camera as Oppo brands it is no slouch either. Oppo is extremely proud of the center placement of the camera for giving you a natural symmetric selfie. All in all, the choice of cameras on the F11 pro and their tuning is done right and we are quite happy about it.

Coming to the software side of this, the good news is this that the F11 pro runs on the latest version of Android which is Android 9 Pie. However, this is Android 9 Pie running Color OS 6 on top of it. While the prior versions of the color OS were IOS rip-off the present color OS 6 is much more streamlined with a borderless design. The OS provides with features like hyper boost which accelerates the performance when needed both in apps and games. It also has its own version of gaming mode called Game Assist which basically features streamlined notifications management, the game assist also allows for other features like screen record and message reply too.

It also features riding mode which mutes all notification and automatically texts back to decline calls. Color OS also features smart assistant which is similar to what is seen on one plus’s shelf on Oxygen OS.  The smart assistant brings features like an on-screen overview of the user’s favorite apps and gives an overall fitness track glance too. All in all, this is definitely not the best custom skin atop android but it is definitely the most refined version of Color OS.

The good news with the battery is this that the F11 pro comes with a huge 4000mAh battery. Which basically converts to all-day battery life. Not only this but the F11 pro comes equipped with Oppo’s VOOC Flash Charge 3.0. The VOOC charger comes inside the box and is rated at 5V and 4A outputting 20W in total. VOOC charge is basically a combination of FFC algorithm and fast charging allows the F11 Pro 20 minutes lesser charge time than VOOC charge 1.0. All in all, again the battery charging time and it's capacity are the best in class when compared with other phones in its category.

Now we finally arrive at one of the most important aspects of the phone. This is the price of the phone. The Oppo F11 Pro was launched at Rs. 24990 and comes in at the earlier mentioned colors which are Thunder black and Aurora Green. There is only one model available which is the 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage variant which can further be increased to 256GB via the Hybrid SIM card slot.

If all you want is a great camera, battery life, and an immersive display and if you don't mind the lack of a Type C port or a powerful processor then go for the F11 Pro. Else, there are better options like Samsung A50 at a lower price.

Brief Review:

Chinese Smartphone company BBK Electronics has been the dominating the smartphone market by introducing us with brands like Oppo, Vivo, Realme and even OnePlus. Vivo has launched the Vivo V15 Pro smartphone into the Indian market which is the successor of Vivo V11 Pro which was launched around 6 months ago at a price of around 25000. While being the 1st ever smartphone to be powered by the all-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor, Vivo also introduces a pop-up selfie camera like the one on the Vivo NEX but at a much lower price point at around Rs. 28,990. 

Beginning the Review with the main highlight of the V15 Pro, that is the camera on the V15 pro which has a triple camera setup at the back which includes a primary 48-Megapixel Samsung ISOCELL GM1 sensor with f/1.8 aperture, a Secondary 8-Megapixel Super Wide-Angle sensor along with f/2.4 and a 5-Megapixel Depth camera that too f/2.4 aperture. Now Vivo has claimed that to improve photosensitivity and picture quality, the V15 Pro uses professional “four-in-one pixel” technology that combines four adjacent pixels into a single 1.6μm large pixel, which delivers high-quality 12MP photos while ensuring that the user’s night shots are clearer than ever.

And speaking of the front, well it is a one of a kind pop-up 32-megapixel Selfie Camera with f/2.0 aperture that is a class to look at in its price segment.  The cameras are also equipped with features like AI Face Beauty, AI Scene Recognition, AI Portrait Framing, AI Super Night Mode, AI Selfie Lighting and AI Body Beauty. The camera performance of both and front cameras are really good and they are capable of taking beautiful pictures with good saturation, contrast, and dynamic range. The wide-angle camera pictures don't look that good and you might want to use the 48MP sensor only.

In terms of display, the Vivo V15 Pro comes with a 6.39” Ultra FullView Display which does not have a notch and produces Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels along with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. In simple terms, this is a real bezel-less-display phone with no notch and thin bezels all around. The Super AMOLED screen is also embedded with a 5th Gen in-display fingerprint reader, that is pretty fast and does the job perfectly. 

Now when we talk about performance, the V15Pro is the first smartphone with Qualcomm’s latest mid-range chipset, the Snapdragon 675 which is and Octa-core AIE processor that holds two Kryo 460 Gold cores running at 2.0 GHz and six Kryo 460 Silver cores clocked at 1.7 GHz., which clearly outperforms the Snapdragon 660 and in terms of Raw performance in single-core benchmark matches up to the Snapdragon 845. Although the new and improved Adreno 612 barely makes any impact when compared to its predecessor the Adreno 512 in the Snapdragon 660. While operating with FunTouch OS 5.0 that runs on Android 9 Pie OS. The V15 Pro offers Game Mode 5.0 for optimizing the Adreno 612’s performance during gaming. 

The Phone comes with a 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage that can be expanded to 256 GB with a micro SD card. Speaking of BenchMark scores, in terms of the multi-core score at GeekBench it scores 6527 and as for Single-core score, it is at about 2386 which is very impressive considering the Snapdragon 675. AnTuTu Benchmark score of the V15 Pro is 180774 and can be considered to be pretty fast at the mid-range processor segment. 

Taking on the exterior of the device, it comes with a polycarbonate back panel, which does looks premium in the eyes because of the subtle stripes pattern on the back but kind of feels plastic which held on to the hands, for which the Company provides an additional in-box back cover that has a transparent glass finish at the back along with rubber finish at the side for perfect grip of the phone.  While weighing around 185 grams, the phone measures 157.2 x 74.7 x8.2 mm. What’s also to take on notice is the 2.5 D glass on the notch less display which makes the smartphone to achieve an impressive 91.64% screen-to-body ratio. However, there isn’t any protection on the display as the company so users must take care of that beautiful screen on their hands. 

Coming to the rest of the features, Vivo offers its exclusive Dual-Engine Fast Charging, which claims to charge up to 24% in just 15 minutes. However, the phone does not offer any USB Type C leading it only support the normal Micro USB 2.0 for its 3700 MAh battery. The phone takes less than 2 hours to completely charge and will provide a backup of 1 to 1.5 days with normal usage.

Apart from this, the handset is equipped with the general connectivity features such as Dual 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS and Wi-Fi 802.11ac. While it is said that V15 Pro models which NFC support will be available in some regions like Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Russia.

Overall, Vivo V15 Pro is an interesting smartphone with a nice design, funky features like pop-up camera, good battery, powerful processor and great overall performance. The price of 29000 is a bit more than expected because if you can spend a bit more you can get flagships like LG G7 and OnePlus 6T.

Brief Review:

 

Honor View 10 came out last year and offered flagship like experience at a price of under 30000. It was a nice smartphone with powerful internals and a good camera. Honor View 20 looks like a big upgrade over View 10 and packs a lot of improvements. Is it the best budget flagship? Is it better than OnePlus 6T? Let's find out in our brief review below.

Honor View 20 comes with a fresh design and it is one of the best we have seen. The back is of glass and is super reflective. It reflects V pattern at different angles. The phone is built well and feels very solid in hand. It has a big battery but doesn't feel too heavy. 

The display on the front is a 6.4 inch LCD panel of Full HD+ 1080p resolution. The display has very thin bezels all around and there is no notch. The camera is placed inside a hole. Honor call it In-screen camera while some other manufacturers call it punch hole display. The camera is placed near the left top edge of the screen. The earpiece is in the top middle and is almost not visible. The display is good but not flagship grade at all. The Full HD+ resolution is mediocre these days and the display isn't too bright either. Color accuracy and viewing angles are decent though. 

The rear camera on Honor View 20 is a 48MP Sony sensor with a TOF 3D secondary lens. This is the first time we are seeing this sensor on a smartphone. The TOF 3D sensor is for mapping the depth of field and is useful in taking portrait shots, AR games etc. The primary 48MP sensor captures great pictures with natural colors, plenty of details and good dynamic range. Even in low light, the pictures captured looks really good. It is an impressive camera sensor and you will love taking pictures on your View 20.

The front camera(inside the display) is a 25MP sensor and it also takes some beautiful pictures. It does tend to beautify the face which is common on most smartphones. The pictures are well detailed and the bokeh effect looks natural as well. 

The Honor View 20 runs on Kirin 980 chipset which is the latest from HiSilicon and performs similarly to Snapdragon 845. It is built on the 7nm process and is very power efficient. There are 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage on View 20. Plenty of RAM and powerful chipset means this phone can handle multiple apps and games without breaking a sweat. Heavy games like PUBG also run smoothly. So, if you are a gamer, View 20 is a good phone for you. 

The View 20 comes loaded with EMUI 9 which is a skin based on Android Pie 9. EMUI has been renamed as Magic UI. It has some bloatware but it is well optimized so everything runs smooth. Plus, it has some nice features like dual apps.

The battery inside the View 20 is 4000 mAh and gives excellent battery backup. With low to medium usage, the phone will last for 2 days on a single charge and with heavy usage, you will get 1 to 1.5 days of battery backup. The phone supports fast charging and comes with a fast charger in the box The charger charges the phone from 0 to more than 50% in just 30 minutes. 

The phone doesn't have any MicroSD slot to increase the storage. Also, there is no support for Wireless charging and no IP rating as well. These are some of the features which define flagship but Honor has skipped all these.

At around 38000, Honor View 20 is a great option if you need a phone which looks great, takes excellent pictures and lasts long. If you need IP rating, Wireless Charging, and MicroSD slot then this is not for you. LG G7 is an excellent option which doesn't look as good but comes with plenty of features and is a proper flagship. If you are a OnePlus fan, then the 6T is a good option.

Brief Review:

OnePlus is one brand that was built and has grown well on user loyalty hence becoming the leader in the flagship smartphone companies beating low value for money Apple smartphones. OnePlus 6T is the latest smartphone from OnePlus and comes with a few updates from the previous OnePlus 6 and a similar launch price. Let find out everything about the 6T is this brief review.

OnePlus 6T comes with a slightly bigger 6.41 inch Full HD AMOLED type display. This does not come with the Quad HD screen but it has perfect colors, saturation and brightness levels. There is a waterdrop notch at the top which holds the front camera, proximity sensor, and an earpiece. You do get the option to hide the notch if you do not like it. The bezels at the bottom are slightly reduced compared to the OnePlus 6. The fingerprint sensor has been upgraded to the in-display sensor and the headphone jack has been removed. There is a Gorilla Glass 6 to protect the screen from damage and the box bundles a back case to protect the back from damage as it is also glass. So overall OnePlus 6T is a refreshed design on OnePlus 6.  

It is powered by the topmost Snapdragon 845 which has now featured in a handful of smartphones with the Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL being the latest entrant. The performance, without any iota of doubt, is the smoothest and there is no lag or hiccups whatsoever. The performance also gets a boost because OnePlus comes with the Oxygen OS which is one of the cleanest custom Android UI. On the hardware we have 6 GB and 8 GB RAM variants RAM with 128 GB internal storage. As with other Snapdragon 845 processor phones, the gaming and multitasking are super smooth and offer a great experience. There is no option to increase the storage and the phone only supports dual sim with no SD card slot.

Coming to the brief overview of the camera of OnePlus 6T, we see that the sensors remain the same as in the OnePlus 6 with some improved software features and functionality which will anyways be added to the OnePlus 6. On the rear camera, we have a dual sensor with a 16MP f/1.7 aperture which supports OIS - Optical Image Stabilisation and a 20MP sensor with f/1.7 aperture. The captures images look very much accurate in clours, sharpness, and brightness. The autofocus works really well and is quick. The camera app comes with many modes like the Pro mode, portrait mode, night mode, time-lapse, panorama, and a few others. The new night mode is used to enhance the low light photography by capturing more light and the phone does the job really well. HDR mode brings more details and makes the image attractive

The portrait shots in outdoor lightning come with proper edge detection and bokeh effect. No image looks over processed and proper details are captured in every click. The portrait shots in the low light images are good but not the best. They face some noise and not consistent all the times. The selfie camera has a 16 MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture and has EIS support. The front camera performance is also outstanding and can capture a lot of details with color accuracy.

In the video recording, the phone supports 4K recording at 60 fps with OIS while 4K recording at 30 fps only has Electronic Image Stabilisation (EIS). All video recorded at 1080p or lower resolution gets the Optical Image Stabilisation. Overall the camera performance has not changed much compared to the OnePlus 6 but is the best pick in the given price range of 40k. OnePlus 6T scores a massive 98 points on the DXO Mark.

From the software perspective, OnePlus 6T has the custom Oxygen OS build over the Android 9 (Pie) and is one of the cleanest custom operating systems which is fast and not at all clunky. There are minimum bloatware apps and the OS has many useful features. 

For unlocking, 6T offers a major upgrade with In Display fingerprint sensor compared to the rear sensor on the OnePlus 6. The sensor is very accurate but not as fast as the rear sensor. The performance has certainly improved with the previous phones having a display sensor. The response is not a touch and go and takes a few extra milliseconds to unlock the phone. The face unlocks uses the front camera sensor and is super accurate and extremely fast as on the OnePlus 6. 

The battery has also seen a major improvement as it gets an upgrade from 3200 mAh to 3700 mAh and given the clean software, 1080P AMOLED display, we could get a Screen On Time of 5 to 6 hours that results in a full day or more of battery life. There is a USB Type C for charging and the phone comes with a proprietary Dash charger that can charge the battery to 100% in around 60 minutes and quick 35% in just 20 minutes. With the improved battery life and a fast charger, you will never face any issue with this phone. Despite the glass back, we still see no support for wireless charging on this phone.

To make the space for a bigger battery and an in-display fingerprint sensor, OnePlus decided to shun the 3.5 mm headphone jack as we saw on the other flagship smartphones. There is a bundled dongle in the box which you can use when you want to use headphones. 

This phone does not have any official IP certification but the company claims that the phone is rain and splash proof but we proactive is saving it from any dust or water damage as it is not covered in the warranty. 

Overall, OnePlus 6T comes with tiny and big 6 incremental updates over the OnePlus 6 and is a perfect flagship for anyone looking to spend only under 40000 and experience powerful performance, great camera, and super quick charging. For any reason, if you are looking for other option, Honor has listened to you with the launch of Honor View 20 which comes with punch hole display and great looks.

Brief Review:

LG has been a slow player in the smartphone market but has maintained the quality it is known for. This time LG has launched the LG G7 ThinQ which is a budget flagship smartphone and seems to have perfectly delivered in each aspect on the smartphone. As with the latest trend, it has a notch display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 and a very superior camera. Let us find out the complete list of features, specifications in this review of LG G7 ThinQ.

LG G7 Plus ThinQ comes with a 6.1-inch display which has a Quad HD Plus resolution(1440 x 3120 pixels). Talking about the display quality, it is an HDR screen and has a Dolby Vision Certification. It is amazingly bright which looks gorgeous and provides you with the best picture and visual quality and very punchier colors. On the design side, the front has a notch design which translates to an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and 564PPI. You get a corning gorilla glass 5 on the back which is sort of a fingerprint magnet but looks a premium smartphone.LG has also added a cloth in the box for cleaning the fingerprint smudges when you get them. There is a rigid aluminum frame in between the front and back giving a solid hold to the smartphone. The phone is narrower compared to the standard design in other smartphone and is easy to hold in hand. The notch has an option to be removed if you are not a fan of it. 

On the performance side, LG has left no stone unturned and has made no compromise. LG G7+ ThinQ is powered by the beast Snapdragon 845 smartphone which is seen on the likes of OnePlus 6, Zenfone 5Z etc. The processing is supported with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. G7+ like the other smartphones 845 powered smartphones scored a massive 260000 on the AnTuTu Benchmark. You will never feel short on performance whatsoever you ask this smartphone to do. It has an Adreno 630 GPU that very well enhances your gaming experience and no lag or heating issues could be observed in our usage. So not much to talk on the performance as it can handle everything you throw at it. To expand the storage over the inbuilt 64GB, there is a hybrid sim slot that can expand the storage up to 512 MB.

Coming to the camera of the LG G7 Plus ThinQ, it has a dual 16MP(f/1.6) + 16MP(f/1.9) on the back. The f/1.9 sensor also has a 16mm lens for wide-angle shots and can easily capture about twice the normal frame. Here the camera captures perfect shots having the best in class color reproduction and crispness in the image and works well in both well lit and low light shots. The portrait shots are also brilliant with proper edge detection. The front camera is an 8MP sensor which also supports bokeh shots, HDR mode etc and though the selfie clicks are really good and cover a lot of details but is a tad below when compared with the likes of the flagship phones like Samsung S9 or S9 Plus. Also, there is an option to vary the amount of blurriness(bokeh) you want to put in the image when it has been clicked.  Overall, the camera impresses us with its quality and features and certainly, LG has done a tremendous task for under 40k smartphone.

LG in this G7 Plus has put a special focus on the audio quality both via the speakers and the audio quality via the headphone jack. Here the speaker is a boombox speaker that is perfectly loud and amplifies the sound. The only disappointment here is the phone does not have a stereo speaker and the earpiece is not being used as a secondary speaker. The audio via the headphone jack is one of the best one compared to any smartphone and if you listen to a lot of music or watch videos, it will totally immerse you in the highest quality audio output. It uses the DTS X technology to deliver the excellent sound experience. LG has also bundled an LG branded in-ear styled earphone which is pretty good and has a top-notch quality.

The battery on this smartphone is rated at 3000 mAh and the box bundles an 18 W fast charger. There is a USB type C on the phone and the battery lasts for a complete day. This is because of the optimization LG has added optimization in the display and has low power mode to save the battery. Though, for a high-end user, the battery life may not last a complete day and charging may be required in between.

The phone runs on Android 8.0 and has an LG custom skin over it. The UI has very little bloatware but the interface looks clunky and cluttery compared to the standard UI seen in the other phones. You would take some time to adjust to the aesthetics of it. Also, LG has been very slow with the Android updates as the phone still runs on the Android 8.0 and not the 8.1 version. There is a separate button in the middle of the right side that by default launches the Google Assistant. The good thing is that they have added the feature to customize the functionality of the button.

Talking about the other features, we feel that it will be wrong calling this smartphone as a budget flagship, given it has all the flagship features seen in the likes of Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus, Note 9 etc. Here the LG G7 Plus ThinQ has an IP68 certification which means it is completely water and dust resistant and will not harm the device. Also, the device supports wireless chargingThese are some features which have not been seen in the 30000 price segment. 

LG G7 offers a great flagship experience and is a true flagship killer because of its great price.

Brief Review:

Vivo V11 Pro is the successor of Vivo V9 which was launched earlier this year and was one of the first mid-range phones with a notch display. Vivo V11 Pro is a big upgrade over V9 as Vivo has updated the internal hardware and has added some latest features as well. Let's take a look at the brief review of Vivo V11 Pro.

The first thing everyone is going to notice in a smartphone is its design and Vivo V11 Pro excels at that. V11 Pro has a beautiful design. The display on the front is a large 6.4 inch panel with minimal bezels. The notch is tiny and houses the front camera. The chin at the bottom is small as well. The screen to body ratio of over 90% which is something you don't see in midrange phones. Moreover, the display panel is Super AMOLED which looks beautiful which high contrast and rich colors. The back of the phone has a dual color design with a nice glossy finish. Overall, this is one of the most beautiful phones you will see in this range.

The rear camera on the Vivo V11 Pro is a dual setup with a 12MP color sensor + 5MP depth sensor for taking portrait mode pictures. On the front there is a 25MP sensor. Both front and rear cameras take excellent pictures in outdoor good lighting conditions. The pictures are sharp with plenty of details, good contrast and saturation. The dynamic range is pretty good as well. The front camera on the phone is one of the best selfie camera we have seen. It takes excellent selfie shots. You can also choose various filters, stickers and beautification levels. The camera performance of the phone is excellent. The only thing you won't like about the camera is the video recording which is average because of no OIS or EIS support.

Now coming to the internals. The Vivo V11 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 which is a powerful midrange chipset. There is 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage on this device. Powerful processor and plenty of RAM means the device is able to handle multitasking and gaming with ease. You won't notice any lag during day to day usage. Heavy games like PUBG also run fine on this smartphone. 

If you need more storage then you can do that with the MicroSD slot which can increase the storage by up to 256GB. The MicroSD slot is dedicated so you won't be compromising with the dual sim functionality of the device. It is a dual VOLTE device so you can use two 4G sims simultaneously. 

The Vivo V11 Pro runs on Funtouch OS which is a skin based on Android Oreo 8.1. Funtouch OS is heavily customised skin with a lot of extra apps and features. If you like to use features like dual apps then you would like it. Things are a bit complicated though and the settings menu is not really ease to use and you might need sometime before getting used to it. 

Vivo V11 Pro comes with 2 new exiting features. First is the in-display fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint sensor is below the display and is not visible. Vivo says this is 4th generation in-display sensor and is faster and more accurate then the previous ones. The second exiting feature is the IR face unlock. Vivo is using the front camera for the face unlock and they have added IR as well which helps to unlock the phone in dark conditions. Both in-display fingerprint sensor and IR face unlock are nice to see in a mid-range smartphone. The performance is not the best but you can improve that by enabling a setting where the phone uses both fingeprint and face unlock together to unlock the device faster. 

The battery inside the V11 Pro is a 3400 mAh battery. It is not a big battery but V11 Pro does have power efficient AMOLED display and Snapdragon 660 chipset. Thanks to these, the battery backup of the phone is good and it will easily last for a day on a single charge. The phone supports fast charging and also comes with a fast charger inside the box and charges the phone completely in around 1 hours and 40 minutes. 

Overall, Vivo V11 Pro is an great mid-range phone. It offers a great design, gorgeous display, powerful processor, good cameras and latest features like in-display fingeprint and IR face unlock. If you have a budget of around Rs. 25000 then this is the phone you should buy.

Brief Review:

Huawei, as has been seen lately, is more aggressive than ever to make itself count in one of the top smartphone manufacturers. With Huawei Nova 3, the company tries to compete in the budget flagship segment and with the likes on OnePlus 6, Asus Zenfone 5Z as it did by launching the Honor 10, Honor view 10 to compete with previous versions of OnePlus. Here we review the Huawei Nova 3 and discuss the specifications, features and ratings of this gorgeous smartphone.

Huawei Nova 3 has a 6.3-inch full view display with a notch and a Full HD Plus resolution. The aspect ratio stands at 19.5:9 and the display is amazing with its colour reproduction and viewing angle. The back has a glass design which is becoming a Huawei winning formulae as it looks super attractive with its blue and purple shades outputting amazing colours at different angles. The glass back though is a fingerprint magnet but having a transparent back case can save you which also comes bundled in the box.

Talking about the performance factor of this Nova 3. It comes powered with an in-house Kirin 970 processor as was seen in the other Huawei phones in under 30k range like the Honor View 10 and Honor 10. Kirin 970 is a powerful processor and Nova 3 scores a decent 174000 on the AnTuTu Benchmark which is at par with the Snapdragon 835 but not close to the Snapdragon 845 as seen in the similar budget smartphone of 30000 to 40000 like the OnePlus 6 and Zenfone 5Z. The Snapdragon 845 clocks around 270000 points on the AnTuTu benchmark. While checking on the performance and comparing it with the other phones in this range, the performance in day to day usage with decent multitasking, gaming may seem okay and equivalent but when it comes to a super high usage (which SD845 is meant for), the difference could be observed.

Nova 3 with the Kirin 970 gets a 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. This smartphone gets also gets a hybrid MicroSD Card slot through which you can expand the storage by up to 256GB, which you usually do not see in a Budget flagship or a flagship smartphone. For the enhancement in the gaming experience, the Nova 4 comes with GPU turbo that brings out best of the graphics and also consumes less power.

On the camera domain, which is one of the most important features from every user perspective, Nova 3 get a dual rear camera with a 16MP primary sensor and a 24MP monochrome sensor both having f/1.8 aperture. The images clicked by the camera are perfect in the daylight, the AI used in the camera auto-detects the objects to improvise on the colours but at times they can get over saturated. The camera application in the Nova 3 gives you an option to save the non-AI image if you do not like the modifications done by the AI. The 24MP monochrome sensor is used to click black and white images and works decently well and is also used as a depth sensor for clicking the images with bokeh effect. The portrait shots are perfect with proper edge detection and blurring.

Coming to the low light conditions, the camera struggles a bit due to the lack of Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and you need to be extra cautious with stable hands to like a noise-free or low noise image.  Do note that the rear camera has a bump at the back and protrude outside. You can shoot video up to 4K which work fine in the daylight but the low light show noise and blur. Huawei has confirmed that the OIS would be rolled out pretty soon with a software update which would further output better pictures and video quality.

Talking about the front camera of Nova 3, which comes with a dual sensor here as well. Here the camera has a 24 MP primary sensor and a 2 MP depth sensor.  The images are sharp and bright with proper colours all around and the bokeh effects is super amazing. The camera poses an image assistant feature which uses AI, where you can click any image and Amazon assistant would guide you to a list similar products on Amazon. You can use this feature on any image in your phone by touching the image with two fingers.

The gaming performance is smooth and we did not face any lag or frame drops but some heating with the extended gaming. The battery has a 3750 mAh rating and could work enough for a day with medium type usage. The box includes a fast charger but takes about 110 minutes for a full charge, so it is not that fast as with the OnePlus 6. You also get an apple styled earphone in the box.

The software on the Nova 3, is the EMUI 8.2 build on the Android Oreo 8.1 and comes with some neat features that you will love. There are some bloatware apps but they can be removed. The notch also has the option to be removed and the phone to be used as a full view display smartphone.

Nova 3 comes with both fingerprint and face unlocking mechanism. The fingerprint sensor is located at the back and is easily accessible and works fine. The face unlock is done through the front camera but also has IR sensors that allow it to unlock even in low lighting conditions which the other face unlock devices expect the iPhone X fails. Though the face unlock is not as accurate compared to the iPhone X in the low light but does the job most of the time.

There is no IP rating on the phone so it should be protected from dust and water. Overall the phone is a decent piece of budget flagship with good hardware specifications but looks to not beat the likes of Onplus 6 either in performance or the camera quality.

In the launch offers, you can avail a discount of Rs 3000 when you buy Nova 3 using Amex card. You can check the other Nova 3 launch offers here.

Brief Review:

Asus Zenfone 5Z looks like a great bet from Asus for capturing the budget flagship market in India which is dominated by the likes of OnePls 6 and Honor 10. It has a very powerful configuration and some great features which makes it a true competitor in the budget flagship space. We are expecting Asus to be very competitive with the pricing and it can cost around 29999. We will update this review when the official pricing and unveiled. Let us talk about its specifications and reviews as a smartphone priced under 30000. The phone will be officially launched in India on 4th July 2018 and sale would start a week after that. It will be sold exclusively via Flipkart.

Asus Zenfone 5Z comes with a beautiful 6.3-inch display which has a Full HD Plus resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. It comes with a notch design and the IPS display has a perfect colour reproduction. With a screen to body ratio of 90 per cent, the phone looks amazing. The back of the phone has a reflective design that looks attractive and stylish. Both the back and front are protected by a 2.5 D Gorilla Glass. Despite a big screen size, the phone is sleek, lightweight and is easily operatable by one hand. The display also has a feature where its colour temperature is adjusted automatically based on the ambient lighting conditions.
