Redmi 5A was just launched as "desh ka smartphone" because of its pricing. At just 5000 it offered excellent value for money and we thought this is the best phone at 5k and you cannot get anything better than this but we were wrong. Tenor or 10.or has come with an even better smartphone at the price of Rs. 5000. Let's take a look at its brief review.
10 or D body looks like metal but it is plastic. The plastic has been painted to provide a metal look and it goes look good. The build quality of the Tenor D is good and the phone feels comfortable in hand. Tenor D is a 5.2-inch device so you will not face any problems with one hand usage. The display resolution is HD 720p. It is very bright and colors are accurate. The viewing angles are also fine.
There are no dedicated navigation keys on the bottom of 10.or D. We think Tenor should have reduced the bezels on the bottom if they are not going to provide navigation keys there.
The rear camera on the Tenor D is 13MP camera sensor with F2.0 PDAF and the front camera is a 5MP shooter. Both cameras perform well in outdoor conditions and average in indoor low light conditions. Considering the price point of Rs. 5000, we can't complain much.
On the inside, Tenor 10 or D has a Snapdragon 425 chipset which is an entry-level chipset with decent performance. Snapdragon 425 is a very efficient chipset as well so we are happy that Tenor has gone with Snapdragon instead of MediaTek.
Tenor D comes in 2 variants. First one is with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage and the second one comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. The lower variant is priced at Rs. 4999 and the higher variant is priced at Rs. 5999. We would suggest you go for 3GB 32GB variant as at just Rs. 1000 extra you get 1GB extra RAM and double internal storage. 1GB extra RAM can be very useful while multitasking.
If 32GB space is not enough for you then you can use the dedicated MicroSD slot on the 10.or D which can increase the storage by up to 128GB.
The Antutu benchmark score of the Tenor D is around 36000 which is expected because of the Snapdragon 425. This is by no means a high score, but for a device priced at 5000, this is great. As you can expect there is no IP rating for this device. We do hope that someday budget devices like the 10 or D will be IP67 rated.
For security, there is a fingerprint sensor on the back of 10.or D. The fingerprint sensor performs well and is quick and accurate. It is good to see that Tenor has included a fingerprint sensor in a budget device.
So that was all we had on 10.or D. We think Tenor has done a great job here and it will be able to give tough competition to Redmi 5A. At the same price, it offers a bigger display, a bigger battery, a fingerprint sensor and stock Android.
If you are looking for a good comparison of 10.or D and Redmi 5A then take a look here.
If you can spend more then we recommend Redmi 4 which offers better processor, better battery, metallic back and fingerprint sensor.
The best price of Tenor 10.or D is around Rs. 4999. The prices keep changing so please check the latest price and available deals & offers at links below
Redmi 5A was launched recently and we loved the device because of decent performance at excellent pricing. Tenor 10.or D goes one step ahead and provides a fingerprint sensor and stock android at the same price. It is the best smartphone you can get at Rs. 5000.
