Brief Review:

Oppo Realme 2 has been launched as the successor in just 4 months after the success of Oppo Realme 1. Realme 1 lacked a dual camera, a fingerprint sensor but at the pricing was a great phone. Oppo has launched Realme 2 at a similar pricing but with better specifications and follows the current trend and also covers up the features that were missing in the Oppo Realme 1.  It gets a notch display, beautiful design, long battery, dual camera and finally a fingerprint sensor all available under 10000. Let us look at the features, specifications and reviews of this great budget smartphone Oppo Realme 2.

Oppo Realme 2 comes with a 6.2 inch HD Plus screen having a resolution of 1520 X 720 pixels and has proper brightness and good viewing angles. The display has a notch design with an aspect ratio of 19:9. In terms of design, it comes with the OPPO famous diamond cut pattern that adds true beauty to the smartphone and it is easily the best-looking smartphone under 10000.

Realme 2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor supported by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of memory. It scores around 77000 on the AnTuTu Benchmark and works smoothly in all the day to day usage so you can use depending on your usage. You can also play low to medium level games but high-end games face some lag issues. There is a 4GB 64 GB variant also available for this smartphone.

On the camera side, Realme has not disappointed this time as it comes with a Dual rear camera with 13MP which is the primary sensor and 2MP which is the depth sensor for the portrait effects. Here you get an HDR mode, portrait mode for blurring the background and also the beauty mode. The front camera is an 8 MP sensor which comes with the HDR mode and also supports depth effect using the software. The front camera also has AI beauty support to improve the selfie experience and offers you the best selfie. The shutter speed of the camera is quick and we could click pictures without any delay. The video recording support on the Realme 2 has a maximum 1080 pixel resolution and the audio quality is also recorded clear on the video.

Oppo Realme 2 runs on ColorOS 5.1 which is a custom skin based on Android Oreo 8.1 and comes with some third party apps preinstalled. Realme 2 has also introduced a fingerprint sensor which was missing on the Realme 1 smartphone. The fingerprint sensor is very quick and accurate. The smartphone also supports face unlocking supported by the front camera which is located in the notch. 

It has a proper dual sim support and a dedicated SD card slot that can expand the storage up to 256GB. It has a massive battery capacity of 4230 mAh and the phone still does not weigh heavy and can be easily held in hand. The battery gives a backup of around 1.5 to 2 days which is good for people who look for a long battery smartphone. It has a micro USB port available for charging and does not support fast charging and you get a 10W charger inside the box. There is not an IP rating on this phone and hence keep it protected from water and dust.

Overall, in this Oppo Realme 2, you get a stylish looking smartphone with a notch design, a good processor and camera for the price range, a massive battery and support for finger and face unlocking. Certainly, as per our review of Oppo Realme 2, it is the best phone under 10000.

Brief Review:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Brief Review:

Honor has been very aggressive in the under 20000 smartphone range. They have launched Honor 9 Lite, Honor 7X, Honor 9i which have received great response from the users. Honor is now launching Honor 9N, which is a rebranded Honor 9i(2018) launched in China. It comes with a notch display and beautiful design and is a good smartphone under 15000. Let us look at the reviews, specifications and features of this beautiful phone. 

Honor 9N comes with a 5.84-inch notch display with a Full HD Plus resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels. The display is a full view display having an aspect ratio of 19:9. In terms of design, it has a glass design and looks similar to the one seen Honor 9 Lite. The front has a notch and the back has a horizontal dual camera setup with a LED flash at the top and a fingerprint sensor. Honor has launched Honor 9N with a tagline of #ExtraOrdinaryBeauty and the design and looks truly upholds the statement. It is lightweight and easy to hold and operate with one hand.

On the performance side, Honor has once again used the in-house Kirin 659 processor which we have seen in all the midrange phones starting from Honor 9 Lite, Honor 9i (2017) and the Honor 7X. This smartphone has 4 GB of RAM with 64 GB of internal storage. We have seen the similar configuration in all the Honor phones in this price range and though Kirin 659 is not a powerhouse as Snapdragon 636 seen in Redmi Note 5 Pro but does handle multitasking with ease and one can easily go through all the daily tasks without any difficulty. But that Kirin 659 at the pricing of under 15000 does not raise the bar in the performance side when compared to the likes to Note 5 Pro, Asus Zenfone Max or the Mi A2 which has just launched. Honor 9N scores around 75000 on the Antutu Benchmark.

Coming to the camera, Honor 9N supports a dual rear camera setup with 13MP as the primary sensor and 2MP sensor as the secondary sensor with Dual tone LED flash and autofocus. The camera works fine with clear and crisp shots and good colour reproduction. The camera also supports face detection, portrait (bokeh) mode and HDR mode. The front camera is a 16MP shooter which is located inside the front notch and as expected clicks beautiful pictures and also supports portrait shots via software processing.

Honor 9N runs on EMUI 8.1 which is a custom skin based on the Android 8.1 Oreo and works smooth. They are some bloatware but Honor has well refined the EMUI over the years. There is a hybrid micro SD card slot to expand the memory up to 256 GB. Honor 9N supports both fingerprint and face unlocking mechanism and both of the methods work accurately and swiftly. Honor 9N does not carry any IP rating so keep it safe from the dust and water.  It has a battery rated at 3000 mAh which can keep the phone powered up for a day. You would need to charge it after a full day usage. 

Honor 9N though has been launched as the rebranded version Honor 9i (2018) but in actual it is a more beautiful version of all the Honor midrange phones. It has a stunning looking notch and is Honor's first phone under 15000 with a notch. The dazzling looks are very attractive and if you are looking to buy a phone under 15000 with a notch display, Honor 9N has to be your top choice. If you are not much concerned with the high-end gaming or heavy usage, this phone would work through easily.

The 3GB 32GB variant is priced at Rs. 11999 and the 4GB 64GB variant is priced at Rs. 13999. Honor has added a 4GB 128GB variant as well which will cost you 17999. We think the middle variant 4GB 64B provides the best value for money.

Brief Review:

Samsung doesn’t really trust in value for money and is quite reliant on Its loyal fanbase across the subcontinent. For people, who just can’t get enough of Samsung, the company has been steady albeit slowly trickling down features from Its star-of-the-arena flagships. So, Samsung has been quietly upgrading Its mid-segment and ‘budget’ arsenal with top of the line, 2018-grade features namely face unlock, minimal bezels and some more minor add-ons.

After some success with the A and the J series of smartphones, Samsung is looking to up Its On lineup with the latest trends and Samsung Galaxy On6 becomes the first smartphone to receive the 2018 treatment. Let’s find out what all Samsung has packed in there to delight the customers. Let us look at point by point review of the Samsung Galaxy On6 features and specifications.

Talking about the design and build quality of Samsung Galaxy On6, iconic Samsung design thrills could be well sensed here with a tall display, slightly rounded-more squarish feel. The smartphone looks great, especially that blue shade but when you hold It you know It that Its built of plastic with no trace of metal or the aluminium frame you’ve come to expect of upper budget range smartphones. That doesn’t take away the fact that the smartphone looks nice and feels solid.

It is fairly slim at 8.2mm and weighs only 154 grams which are nice numbers for a comfortable use. On the front, you’ll find the touted ‘Infinity’ display which is just Samsung teasing you with Its toned version of edge to edge displays, not curved and with some bezels up top and bottom. The design is not exactly surprising for Samsung smartphones. At the back we find a single sensor based camera setup sitting at the centre with a flash and fingerprint sensor and then there is the same silver Samsung branding. So, to sum It up - Samsung Galaxy On6 is not exactly new on the design front and looks like most other Samsung smartphones, the new is the display which now goes to the edges of the smartphone. Its solid but not metal solid and feels good in the hand.

On the display side of the Galaxy On6, it has a 5.6-inch Super AMOLED panel with a 720 x 1480 pixel resolution at an aspect ratio of 18.5:9. That makes up ~294 PPI on pixel density and while the display isn’t really at the top with other smartphones in resolution, Its really nice display credits to Samsung’s AMOLED panel. The contrast levels are great since Its AMOLED, the colours are punchy and brightness is in plenty. It is a great show affair and we think you’ll share this opinion.

Samsung phones have not been the best multitasking machines, even in 2018, when other phones are raking in with the best processors. But still, Samsung has been able to crack its fan base audience very well.  This is where Samsung ‘budget’ and most of Its mid-range devices seem to slack and this time Its no different. Samsung Galaxy On6 is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7870, which is basically composed of eight Cortex A53s clocked at 1.6GHz. On the graphical processing, On6 has got Mali-T830 MP1. Now, this configuration is not really even a close match for other smartphones in the range packing the best of the crop Snapdragon 636.

Don’t get us wrong, the smartphone packs enough to get you done through basic everyday usage- checking emails, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and some casual gaming but as things start to get serious you start seeing frame drops, stutters and lags. To consolidate multi-tasking, there is 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage which is on par with the pricing. So, If you expect serious performance from your smartphone Samsung Galaxy On6 can be a disappointment but for normal, casual usage, Its nothing bad. It scores around 47000 on the Antutu Benchmark which is again not the best but if you are a Samsung love but not a performance freak. Samsung Galaxy On6 would not disappoint you.  It has a dedicated microSD card slot to expand the storage by upto 256 GB which is a good addon point from Samsung.

The camera has been one of the favourites of Samsung and comes with a long-standing reputation. They have some of the best cameras in the range and we are delighted to give a nod to that here as well. Samsung Galaxy On6 has a 13 MP (f/1.9, 28mm) sensor with AF and LED flash. So no dual sensors but that isn’t bad news for the people looking to get background blur as Samsung has equipped the smartphone with software-based bokeh tricks which don’t go well all the time but you can expect them to be almost close to other smartphones in the range with dual sensors.

Coming to image quality, the camera takes great shots with an abundance of detail at daylight, the exposure and the white balance hits on the spot. Though, the Samsung style saturated colours and sharpening can be seen. The camera holds its ground gracefully in low-light conditions as well, the shots are not awesome but impressive for a budget aimed device, which can’t be said for most other smartphones in the range. On the front, there is an 8 MP, a f/1.9 sensor with LED flash, again ready to make your selfies shine even in low-lights and It works really great, so If you want to keep your self-fame strong - On6 is a great choice.

Let’s talk about the software - Samsung’s Experience UI 9.0 can be seen on top of Android 8.0 Oreo. Now, the experience is snappy and responsive but the minimal and uncluttered appeal Samsung gained with this new UI theming is slowly fading away with tons of bloatware and redundant apps. So, If you seek a clean, neat performant software experience Samsung won’t be the apt choice but it does have some nifty additions like the bike mode and others which are really practical.

Samsung Galaxy On6 is powered by a 3000mAh which is a decent performer and can get you through the day on normal usage but If you like to heat things up a charger would be essential to carry around. So the shocker comes as there is no fast charging support or USB-C. There is no IP rating as well which we usually expect from Samsung, so would be wise to keep It distant from water. Except that, there is Samsung Face Unlock which works decently - it is not insanely fast but gets the job done and for all the faster requirements there is the fingerprint scanner at the back.

The smartphone is out there for you to buy on Flipkart. The pricing puts it in the den of budget lions like Asus Zenfone Max M1 and of course Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. The smartphone is available in two colour options- Blue and Black, Blue stands as out as the favourite.

Brief Review:

Vivo, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is on a streak of launching some great smartphones, painting the full display screen and notch over the world. Vivo Y83, launched recently in India is not exactly a budget device but falls slightly above the mark in sub ₹ 15k range, which is a pretty fiery segment to be competing in with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, Asus Zenfone Max Pro and many more, Could Vivo Y83 best them all? Let’s find out.

If you have been around the Vivo camp for a while, you know about the company’s conspicuous ‘inspirations’ from Cupertino boys. It’s time to face the truth that abhor it, love It, notches are the new cool and Vivo knows how to play with brand value and style status. Ergo, we find the full view, notched, 6.22 inch IPS LCD display on the Vivo Y83 with a super tall aspect ratio of 19:9. The display as goes full stretch to the ends with a noticeable chin at the bottom.

The display has a resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels which clocks in a pixel density of 270 PPI. We expected better but nonetheless, the display is bright and gives a satisfactory viewing experience, with decent viewing angles and nothing marvellous. The sunlight readability is not quite legit, though. The metal back with matte finish looks not so flashy but feels good in hands. The design is not very striking, with curved edges but It is quite comfortable to hold. The shiny metal finish rim encloses volume controls, sleep/wake button on the sides and to our satisfaction, a 3.5mm jack on the bottom with standard MicroUSB port for charging. If you’ve seen Vivo V9, X21 then Y83 feels quite similar. At just 7.7mm thick, Y83 is quite sleek and weighs just 150 grams which is quite appreciable for a smartphone over 6-inches.

Vivo Y83 is powered by the latest MediaTek processor: Helio P22 which is built on 12nm process and provides good performance and power efficiency. Vivo Y83 scores around 70000 on Antutu benchmarks which is similar to the phones powered by Snapdragon 625 or 630. Vivo Y83 performs well and just rolls over all the workloads we could through at It. No lags, no stutters. The system performance is smooth and fluid at all times even with a plethora of apps running at tandem, thanks to 4GB of RAM.

The smartphone comes with 32GB of onboard storage which can be easily expanded to 256GB via MicroSD. In our first impressions, we found casual gaming to be quite smooth and free-flowing, we are not too confident about heavy gaming yet. Stay tuned for the full review. In all, the smartphone seems like a stunner in performance with some clouds over gaming performance but Its quite above the danger mark though.

The primary camera on the Vivo Y83 is a 13 MP (f/2.2) sensor with LED Flash and It is like every budget mediocre camera out there, nothing out of the line, satisfactory shots with some good detail but plenty of noise. Low-light photos are full of grains, It is practically just surviving in harsh lighting conditions. The front sensor is in the same tune with 8 MP (f/2.2) sensor which does a pretty decent selfie job and again, in low-lights its just shooting out in the wild with superb noise levels. Vivo has something called AI beautification mode, which is supposedly meant to enhance selfies, we didn’t find a whole lot ‘AI’ involved in the process, It was more a softening and adding beauty filters process much like most camera apps in Play Store do.

Let's talk about software now. Vivo software skin called FunTouch OS on top of Android Oreo 8.1 run the show on this smartphone. FunTouch OS is another element of Vivo ideology that is inspired heavily from iOS, even to elemental things like the app icons. It just takes it so much towards iOS and so far from Android that the user feels in a limbo. It is heavily bloated and it is not an amazing feeling swiping through the screens and using gestures as they are not very smooth and kinda stick sometimes which is really annoying. There are a host of minor nagging issues here and there in the skin which sums up resulting in quite a struggling experience. Vivo can love iOS and Apple all they want but they need to refine. It has been long since FunTouch received a meaningful upgrade, Vivo folks really need to up their game in software to craft a utopian experience around their devices.

Vivo Y83 comes with a non-removable 3260mAH battery which is decent enough for a day on medium use, If you are a pusher, carrying a charger would be the best policy as this device won’t last an entire day on heavy use. There’s a MicroUSB port on the bottom of the device for charging, what’s sad is that there is no fast charging, which makes charging this device a long process occupying nearly 2.5-3 hours. The single downward firing speaker on the bottom beside the charging port gets loud enough. It pumps well-balanced sound with decent clarity. Vivo Y83 also Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic, so the in-call noise is reduced and It works nicely.

In your interest, you are hereby informed that there is no IP rating for the smartphone, so It would be nice to keep it way far from liquids and dust to ensure Its life and working capacity. Since there’s is all the notch and full-screen display, you might have been missing some FaceID ripoff and Vivo doesn’t disappoint. There is face unlock feature going by the name of Face Access and It works perfectly in most scenarios except low-lighting conditions.

Vivo Y83 is priced at ₹ 14,990 and Customers can get the smartphone from any offline retail store or from Amazon, or the company's official website. At this price, we think it is a good option for those who are looking for a big display phone with a notch. The phone performs well in multitasking and casual gaming as well but it is not the best in this range for those use-cases. The camera performance is also decent in daylight conditions but low light images can be disappointing.

Brief Review:

Realme 1 is an Oppo branded smartphone which comes with a very attractive pricing and features. This phone will be sold exclusively via Amazon and if you want to grow above the likes of Xiaomi, this phone can totally fill the gap. Let us find out what all it holds in this review.

From the design perspective, Realme 1 has a 6 inch Full HD Plus display with a bezel-less display and 18:9 aspect ratio. The display quality is amazing with perfect colour reproduction and clarity. On the back, it has a glass finish with glossy effect and a diamond cut pattern (as seen on the Oppo F7 and Oppo A83) that looks completely beautiful but is also a bit of a fingerprint magnet. On the design front, this is a great looking smartphone.

Let us now talk about the performance, this Realme 1 from Oppo uses a very powerful processor Helio P60 from MediaTek that scores around 135000 on the Antutu Benchmark. This score indicates the Helio P60 powering the Oppo Realme 1 beats the likes of Redmi Note 5 Pro which is powered by Snapdragon 636. The Antutu score depicts the performance of the phone and with our usage we found the phone to be replicating the same. It gave a powerful performance with not even a slightest of lag or issue with any sort of multitasking.

In the Camera department, Realme 1 comes with a single rear sensor of 13MP with LED flash and an 8 MP sensor on the front. The rear camera images have a good amount of details but when the images are zoomed in, there is a bit of noise that can be seen. The Realme 1 uses AI and beautification mode to enhance the images. On the front camera, we again have the option of bokeh effect, the image quality is good with sharp colours and clarity. Both the rear and the front camera features AR stickers.  Comparing the camera performance, the Redmi Note 5 Pro camera absolutely stands out in both rear and front camera with punchier details and better clarity but Oppo Realme 1 camera is much better than the Redmi Note 5.

This smartphone uses Color OS 5.0 as its operating system which is based on Android 8.1. This is the same operating system version seen on oppo F7. There is very little bloatware and comes with some much-needed features that ease the use of your phone.

Oppo Realme 1 comes with face unlocking using the front camera but does not have a fingerprint sensor. Face unlocking is becoming more popular nowadays with most of the smartphone featuring it and users have been comfortable in using it. So the removal of fingerprint sensor should not be a roadblock for this phone but is a move from Oppo to cut down the cost and offer a great price. It is a dual sim phone with a dedicated SD Card slot that can be expanded up to 256 GB.  It also has a 3.5 mm headphone jack but no Type C port.

This phone has a battery of 3410 mAH which can easily last for a day with normal usage. Oppo claims that the phone has AI battery management features which learns as per the usage beahiour and shuts down the background apps to enhance the battery backup. Realme 1 does not support fast charging and will take about 130-150 minutes for a full charge. This smartphone from Oppo weighs only 155 gm and feels comfortable in hand. There is no IP rating on Realme 1 so you will have to keep the phone safe from dust and water.

Let us now talk about the pricing, this smartphone from Oppo comes in 3 variants of 3GB/32GB variant priced at Rs 8999, 4GB/64GB variant priced at Rs 10999, 6GB/128GB variant priced at Rs 13999. The pricing as per specification this phone offers is very competitive and holds the mettle to rake in very good sales and demand.

This Oppo Realme 1 is a powerful beast and the variant are a great value for money. It has perfect looks, performance and a decent camera for the price range. If you have a budget of under 10000 or under 12000, then buying the Oppo Realme 1 makes a lot of sense as you get the same processor(in 3GB and 4GB model) and features which actually stands out when compared with any other phone in the price range of 10000.

If you are looking on this phone with a perspective of the camera, then it is a bit of disappointment, especially when comparing the 6GB model priced similarly with the Redmi Note 5 Pro, 4 GB model having a top-notch camera quality.  But on the other side, if the camera is not your topmost priority but you are looking for a power house, then the 6GB model at the pricing of 13999 can happily suffice your requirements.

Brief Review:

Asus has partnered with Flipkart to launch exclusive smartphones for next 3 years. Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is the first smartphone to be launched under the partnership. The Zenfone Max Pro M1 has specs similar to Redmi Note 5 Pro which has been doing very well in the Indian market. Let's take a look at the brief review of Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1.

Below is an overview of Zenfone Max Pro. If you are interested to know more about this phone take a look at our in-depth review of Asus Zenfone Max Pro.

The Zenfone Max Pro M1 comes with a 5.99-inch display with Full HD+ resolution. The display has 450 nits brightness and is very colourful and vivid. The viewing angles are good as well. The display is covered with a 2.5D glass which gives it a premium look. Asus has reduced the bezels on the top and bottom so the overall size of the phone is still same as a 5.5-inch device. The design is bit boring though. You get metal unibody design so nothing special or new here. The phone weighs 180 grams which is surprising considering the massive 5000 mah battery it carries. Overall, the phone feels good in the hand. 

Let's talk about the battery which is the USP of this device. The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 comes with a large 5000 mah battery which will provide a battery backup of 2 to 3 days on a single charge. If you hate charging your phone every day then you are going to love Max Pro M1. Asus claims that it can run Youtube for 20 hours. The phone comes with a 10-watt charger and it charging time is expected to be little less than 3 hours. The charging time is decent considering the large battery size.

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 comes with a dual 13MP + 5MP rear camera with a 1.12-micron pixel size for better low light performance. The camera performance is good under daylight outdoor conditions. The pictures look colorful with a good amount of details. The camera can take portrait mode pictures as well. In our initial tests, the bokeh effect looked good with proper edge detection. The rear camera can also record 4K videos. Asus claims that this is the best camera in class. We would wait for an in-depth comparison with Redmi Note 5 Pro which has an excellent camera setup both on the front and back.

The selfie camera on the Zenfone Max Pro M1 is an 8MP shooter with a LED flash. The front camera is a decent performer in outdoor lighting. Under low lighting conditions or artificial lighting, the selfie camera performance is average.

The chipset inside the Zenfone Max Pro M1 is Snapdragon 636 which was launched globally with Redmi Note 5 Pro. The SD636 chipset is very powerful and can handle any task you throw at it. Using multiple apps and games is going to be a breeze. Thanks to the powerful chipset, Zenfone Max Pro M1 scores around 116000 on the Antutu Benchmarks which is a bit higher than the score of Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Asus is taking audio quality very seriously as well. There is a Maxxbox which amplifies the sound by 2X. For audio via 3.5 mm jack, Asus has added an NXP audio chipset which improves the sound quality. Sound quality is usually not given importance in the mid-range devices so it is good to see Asus doing something different here to improve the user experience.

On Software side, you get pure Android Oreo on Zenfone Max Pro M1. This is a great step from Asus. There is almost no bloatware on the device. Asus promises to provide next 2 big Android updates as well. So you will get Android P and Android Q

The Zenfone Max Pro M1 comes in 2 variants: 32GB storage and 3GB RAM variant would cost your Rs. 10999 and 64GB - 4GB variant will cost you 12999 only. This is excellent pricing from Asus. Asus has used LPDDR4X RAM which should improve the overall experience. If you are a heavy user then go for the 4GB RAM variant as the extra 1 gig of RAM should help a lot in multi-tasking. The MicroSD slot is dedicated so you can use 2 sim cards with a MicroSD card. 

Overall, we think Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is an impressive device. It comes with the latest display, powerful chipset, decent cameras, pure Android. Multitasking is great and the battery lasts for 2 days. It is clearly one of the best phones in this price range.

It will be available on Flipkart from 3rd May. A new 6GB RAM variant with better camera setup will be launched after some time at Rs. 14999.

Brief Review:

Xiaomi has grown tremendously over last 2 years and disrupted the Smartphone Market to become the leader. This is credited to the success of Redmi 4, Redmi 4A and Redmi Note 4 which were bestsellers last year.  On 14th Feb, Xiaomi has launched Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro in India and is set to break and shake the industry again. Check out Redmi Note 5 here.

Redmi Note 5 comes with a 5.99-inch Bezelless(18:9) display which looks beautiful and marks the entry of Xiaomi in bezel-less phones in the budget segment. The infinity display has a resolution of 1080p Full HD Plus which good viewing angles and vibrant and punchier colors. Note 5 Pro has a metal unibody design and a very strong build quality, something inspired by the Redmi Note 4.

The display size, though, has increased to 5.99 inches, the size of the device is almost same as other 5.5 inch devices as Xiaomi has reduced the bezels. So if you are using a 5.5-inch device, you won't find any difficulty operating with Redmi 5 Pro. With no bezels, the navigation buttons move to On-Screen buttons.

On the Camera side, the smartphone does a wonderful job, it comes with a Dual Rear Camera with a Sony12MP sensor with f2.2 aperture and a Samsung 5MP sensor with f2.0 aperture. These 2 lenses on the back are stacked vertically, similar to something seen in iPhone X. The dual camera can take excellent portrait mode pictures with bokeh effect. Performance is similar to what we saw on Mi A1.

On the Front Camera, we have a special selfie-focused Sony IMX376 sensor, with a resolution of 20MP and f2.0 aperture. It is a great camera for selfies lovers. There is flash on the front side so low light selfies also look decent. Do note that the front camera is capable of taking portrait mode selfies as well with bokeh effect. During our initial test, the selfies came out sharp. The portrait mode worked well with good edge detection and blur effect. We think Redmi 5 Pro is probably the best selfie phone from Xiaomi.

Let's talk about video recording now. Redmi Note series has been weak with video recording as there was no stabilization available. But things have changed now and Redmi Note 5 Pro has EIS(Electronic Stabilization) so the videos won't be shaky and will look much better than other Redmi Series smartphones. In our initial tests, the videos looked good and stabilization also worked well. There's no option to record 4K videos so that a negative.

The camera on both front and rear does a brilliant job overall and you won't have any complaints given the price point at which Xiaomi offers all these features. This Camera performance of Redmi Note 5 Pro has a lot of improvements compared to Redmi Note 4(2017 Best Selling Smartphone) or the Redmi Note 5. Camera lovers won't be disappointed with Redmi Note 5's performance.

This budget beast gets a big boost in the processor department and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 which has an Antutu Score of around 1,10,000. Redmi Note 4 comes with Snapdragon 625 which scores around 65000 on Antutu benchmark. So by this comparison, the Note 5 Pro has 70-80% more processing power. 

It comes in two variants, one with 4GB RAM and other with 6GB of RAM clubbed with 64 GB of internal memory in both the variants, assuring of a power-packed performance with Smooth Multitasking and no lag or delay even with the higher end games. Xiaomi has used DDR4 RAM here which is a great thing because we don't really see DDR4 in budget phones. Only the flagship phones are using DDR4 as of now.

The back of Redmi Note 5 Pro has a curved back making it easier to hold and grip. There is a 2.5D gorilla glass on the display. With a strong build quality, great looks, this Note 5 Pro certainly feels nice in hand. Xiaomi has added a translucent silicon case in the box which fits the phone very nicely. Thumbs up to Xiaomi for adding a free case.

Redmi Note 5 Pro, comes with a fingerprint sensor that is quick in unlocking your phone. Xiaomi has added the face unlock feature in the first update. In our initial tests, the face unlock has been working great. It is quick and unlocks the phone in less than a second. Plus, it works even when your phone is about at waist height and you are looking at it. So, you can just take your phone out of pocket and look at it, it will unlock. You don't need to lift the phone to face height to unlock it. We liked the speed and accuracy of the Xiaomi's face lock. Also, it didn't work when eyes were closed so you don't have to worry about someone unlocking your phone when you are sleeping.

The Redmi Note 5 is not water resistant or dust proof as it does not have any IP rating.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro is running on latest MIUI 9 which is based on Android Nougat 7.1.2,  which will surely be upgraded to Android Oreo in the near future. Those who love stock android won't like the MIUI interface so just go for Nova Launcher.

Still not able to hold what all this smartphone offer. Hold Tight. Apart from raking in the best features in all the departments, This Redmi Note 5 Pro comes with a big 4000mAH which can easily last of 1.5 - 2 days in case of normal usage, given it comes with a power efficient processor. In first few days of use, we got 7 to 8 hours of screen on time which is excellent for a large 6 inch display phone with a powerful processor.

Our charging tests are still in progress and we will add results here soon. 

With ranking high in this department as well, Redmi Note 5 Pro, does not leave any point that can be strictly negative towards it.

Overall, Redmi Note 5 Pro is a great value for money smartphone which looks decent and performs well. If your budget is around 15k then go for it.

Brief Review:

All of the Xiaomi's smartphones, Redmi 4, Redmi Note 4, Redmi 4A and Mi A1 were bestsellers last year. Redmi Note 4 became the best selling phone in India. Today, on 14th Feb, Xiaomi has launched Redmi Note 5 in India. Check out Redmi Note 5 Pro here.

Redmi Note 4 and Redmi Note 5 are very similar devices. The only change is the display which has now changed 5.5 inches 16:9 display to 5.99 inch 18:9 display. Xiaomi is finally jumping on to the 18:9 bezel-less display trend. The resolution of the display is Full HD Plus. The bezel-less display looks beautiful and gives a premium feel to the device. The colors are vibrant and brightness is decent. The display is covered with gorrila glass.

Even when the display size has increased, the size of the device is almost same as other 5.5 inch devices as Xiaomi has reduced the bezels. So if you are using a 5.5-inch device, you won't notice much change in device size.

Smaller bezels mean there are no dedicated navigation buttons on the front of Redmi Note 5. Redmi has moved from dedicated buttons to on-screen buttons to reduce the bezel size. The phone follows metal unibody design approach and the build of the device is solid. The design is very similar to Redmi Note 4 so no surprises there.

The back of Redmi Note 5 is curved a bit which makes it easy to hold. There is a 2.5D glass on the display as well but we don't know whether it gorilla glass or not. Overall, the device feels nice in hand. It is a bit slippery so getting a case would be a good idea.

Now let's talk about the camera. Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 has a single 12MP sensor on the back(again same as Redmi Note 4) of the phone with 1.25-micron pixels, f/2.2 aperture, PDAF, and LED flash. The back camera performance is decent in daylight outdoor conditions. The pictures look good but are not that detailed.

The camera performance in low light conditions is average and same as Redmi Note 4. 

On the front, there is a 5MP selfie camera with a LED flash. The front camera can take decent selfies and the front flash helps under low light conditions.

For security, there is a fingerprint sensor on the back of Redmi Note 5. The fingerprint sensor placement is same as that on Redmi Note 4. The fingerprint sensor is fast and accurate and you won't face any issues with it. The Redmi Note 5 is not water or dust proof so there is no IP rating.

Inside the Redmi Note 5, we have the same Snapdragon 625 chipset which we saw on Note 4. It comes in 2 variants, first one with 4/4GB of RAM and second with 32/64GB of storage. The Snapdragon 625 has been Xiaomi's favorite and they have used it in various devices like Note 4, Mi Max 2 etc.

On benchmark side, you will see Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 scoring around 65000 on Antutu Benchmark which is a decent score. Overall, the Redmi Note 5 performs performance is good. It handles multitasking as well. Plus, you won't face any issues with heavy games.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is running on latest MIUI 9 which is based on Android 7.1.2. We are sure that Xiaomi will be updating the Redmi Note 5 to Android Oreo. 

The battery inside the Redmi Note is of 4000mAh capacity. This is same as what we saw on Redmi Note 4. Large battery and efficent processor means you can get 2 days of battery backup.

There is no fast charging on Redmi Note 5 so charging time will be around 2 hours 30 minutes to 2 hours 45 minutes for 0 to 100%.

Overall, Redmi Note 5 is a good value for money smartphone which looks decent and performs well.

  • Back Camera: 16MP+2MP Dual Camera
  • Front Camera: 8MP
  • 3340mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Aurora Blue, Gold and Black Colors

Best Price ₹14985



Brief Review:

Honor 7X is the successor to the Honor 6X which was first dual camera phone in mid range. Honor 6X sales were good because of the fact that it was one of the first dual camera phones in this range plus the overall performance of the device was good as well. Huawei would like to replicate the success with Honor 7X.

Honor 7X is actually a lot like Honor 9i which was launched recently in India. The internals are same with the same chipset, same RAM. The camera setup at the back is same. The display is also same. Only things that have changed from 9i to 7X is that front camera on 7X is a single 8MP sensor while it was a dual camera setup on 9i and the camera placement on the back has changed. In Honor 9i the dual camera setup is placed vertically in the middle and on Honor 7X the dual camera setup is placed horizontally on the top corner of the device. Because a lot of things are similar, the review is also similar. You can take a look at Honor 9i review here.

Honor 7X has a metal unibody design with a 2.5D glass covering the display on the front which is 5.93-inch display with Full HD Plus resolution. The aspect ratio of the display is 18:9 which we are seeing a lot in latest phones and trend is expected to continue for next few years. In a couple of years, all phones might come with these full view 18:9 displays. 

The hardware inside the Honor 7X is decent as well. We have a Kirin 659 SOC which is an octa-core chipset with 2 clusters of 4 A53 cores. One cluster is power efficient and runs at a lower frequency. The other cluster runs at higher frequencies and is able to handle heavy workloads like heavy games and apps. For storage we have 3 variants: 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. There is a hybrid sim slot as well which can be used to increase the storage by up to 256GB. We do not like the concept of hybrid sim slot but companies are still going for. We hope it changes in future.

In the camera department, we have a dual camera setup on the back. There is a 16MP+2MP dual camera setup. The higher resolution sensor is a color sensor and lower resolution is a black and white sensor. Details from both sensors are combined to improve image quality. It also helps in giving a depth/bokeh effect to your pictures which are also known as portrait shots. In the camera app, you can actually change the object that you want in focus which is quite useful sometimes. The camera performance is good for a device in this range. The Mi A1 back camera is slightly better than this but it does not have a large 5.9 bezel-less display. On the front, there is a single 8MP camera which is capable of taking some nice detailed shots in daylight. The camera performance is decent. The front camera on Honor 9i is better because it has a dual camera setup on the front as well. So selfie lovers should go for Honor 9i.

The Honor 7X runs on EMUI 5.1 which is based on Android 7.0. EMUI has some useful customization with very little bloatware. Overall performance is good. Everyday usage is smooth with no lag.

The battery inside the Honor 7X is 3340 mAH battery which will last for a day on single charge. The charger in the box is a 10W charger with 2A 5V. Charging time of Honor 7X is around 2 hours.

The prices mentioned above on this page are expected prices as the device has not been launched in India. Pricing of Honor 7X in China is 1399, 1699 and 1999 for 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB variant respectively. Honor has priced the Honor 7X at 12999 for 32GB variant and 15999 for the 64GB variant. We think 15999 is little overpriced. There shouldn't have been a difference of 3000 just for 32GB extra storage. Plus, we are disappointed that Honor didn't launch the 128GB variant.

Overall we think pricing is decent and Huawei will be able to compete with Xiaomi which is expected to launch Redmi Note 5 in December with a similar configuration of dual cameras and bezel-less display. 

Honor 7X is an Amazon exclusive device and is available in flash sales only.

Honor 9i is another great option if you take a lot of selfies as it has a dual front camera setup. Buy Honor 9i from Flipkart.
