Brief Review:

When we saw all new Nokia 6, we knew HMD isn’t gonna stop there and here we have one more - The all new Nokia 7 Plus. Announced in February 2018, Nokia 7 Plus aims to consolidate HMD’s ground in the under 25000 smartphone segment. As always, Nokia 7 Plus speaks volumes about Nokia’s commitment to design and build supremacy. It is built with 6000 series Aluminium and has copper edges looks amazing and feels amazingly solid in hand. As is with other Nokia smartphones, the pursuit of durability and sturdiness often lets ergonomics down.

Nokia 7 Plus has the all-new 18:9 aspect ratio with almost no side bezels but considerable ones on top and bottom. There’s a 6-inch, Full HD+1080 x 2160 pixels, IPS LCD display packing 403 PPI. There’s some protection with Gorilla Glass 3 on top. At the back, we have the same iconic vertical cutout for the camera and the flash with emblazoned Zeiss branding. Nokia 7 Plus has a dual camera setup, followed by a circular cutout for a fingerprint scanner.

Let’s talk about the performance of Nokia 7 Plus because the guys at HMD have been bailing on that previously. The Nokia 7 Plus has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 at its heart backed by Adreno 512 for gaming. There’s a big 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage, which makes the operation swift and smooth. The storage is expandable via MicroSD up to 256GB. In the numbers game, the superb performance of this smartphone is pretty evident - 141822 on AnTuTu 7 Benchmark and 1641, 5920 on GeekBench single and multi-core tests respectively. These numbers are certainly better than smartphones like Xiaomi’s Redmi 5 Pro and Oppo R11s.

Photography is one thing we expect a Nokia smartphone to be excellent at. There’s not one but dual camera setup on Nokia 7 Plus to give fodder to our excitement. There is a 12 MP sensor which is the main lens and 13 MP sensor being the telelens for optical zoom. The camera has gyro EIS(Electronic Image Stabilization), dual pixel phase detection autofocus, 2x optical zoom along with the very famous Carl Zeiss Optics. The camera is undoubtedly one of the best we have seen in the bracket, It takes great low-light shots with low levels of noise and great detail. On the front, there’s an equally impressive 16 MP (f/2.0, 1.0 µm) sensor which guarantees great looking selfies.  If you want a great camera on a smartphone and avoid spending fortunes on flagships - Nokia 7 Plus just might be for you.

The camera app of Nokia 7 Plus has options for HDR mode, Bothie mode that allows capturing pictures from both front and rear camera together, beautification mode, and a Pro mode. Like the Nokia 8, Nokia 7 Plus comes with OZO Audio technology that captures the right sounds and reduces the noise while capturing videos.

Nokia 7 Plus runs on Android 8.0 Oreo, under Google’s Android One Program - which means timely and hassle-free updates to pure stock Android on Nokia 7 Plus. HMD promises the Android P and Q updates to Nokia 7 Plus as they are out. We really admire the stock Android experience and mixed with timely updates - Nokia smartphones are really doing great with software.

There is a big 3800mAh battery, which is great for the smartphone to be up all day long and when you do need to charge - there’s USB-C based fast charging to sweeten the experience. Nokia 7 is built with all the major connectivity features including VoLTE and Bluetooth 5.0. The smartphone is very robust in build and would hardly take a dent and has an IP54 rating which is better than nothing for protection against water. Don’t know about IP ratings? Here’s an amazing-amazing article.

Nokia 7 Plus would cost ₹ 25,999 which is again Nokia-grade overpriced. There are some amazing alternatives but If you want to go with amazing build quality and some supercool Zeiss shots, Nokia 7 Plus won’t disappoint. You can pre-book the phone on April 20th and it will go on sale on April 30.

Strong build quality, Powerful Chipset, Perfect Camera Images, Android One makes it one of the best phones under 25000.

Brief Review:

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

Under the hood, Oppo F7 has a MediaTek Helio P60 running the cause. Helio P60 appears to be a very capable SoC on paper with 8 cores out of which 4 are high-performance Cortex A73s while the other 4 are high-efficiency Cortex A53s, all clocked at 2.0GHz. To serve all your gaming needs there’s a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU, which is not as good as Adreno on Snapdragons but gets the job done. Oppo F7 comes in two variants with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage and the other one having 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage. The specifications are really impressive and give good vibes about this smartphone.

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

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

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

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

Large Bezelless Display, Powerful Chipset, Good Camera Perormance, Dedicated MicroSD makes it one of the best phones under 25000.

3. Vivo V9

V9

Features

  • 4 GB RAM | 64 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 256 GB
  • 6.3 inch Full HD+ Display 1080p
  • Back Camera: 16MP + 5MP Dual Camera
  • Front Camera: 24MP
  • 3260mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Gold, Black Colors

Best Price ₹20990



Brief Review:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Great Design and Looks, Cool Camera Features, Supports Fast Charging, Dedicated Sd card slot makes it one of the best phones under 25000.

Brief Review:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Solid Build Quality, Huge RAM, Good Rear Camera, Dedicated MicroSD Slot makes it one of the best phones under 25000.

Brief Review:

Moto X4 was released today on 13th November in an event by Motorola. With Moto X4, Motorola makes a comeback with its X series phones in the mid-range segment. The phone looks stunning, has a powerful hardware inside and many new features.

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

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

In terms of the performance factor, Moto X4 comes powered by 2.2 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Chipset, with an Antutu benchmark score of 70,000, a 10% increase over the Snapdragon 625 seen in many smartphones like Mi A1, Moto G5S Plus and Honor 9i.

Moto X4 has 2 variants. The lower variant comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and higher variant comes with 4GB of RAM and internal storage of 64 GB which is expandable up to 2TB, so memory and RAM are never going to be an issue. The performance is top notch and no lag experience whatsoever could be seen in our initial reviews. We recommend going for the 4GB 64GB variant as the price difference is just 2k. The 6GB RAM variant is priced at Rs. 24999.

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

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

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

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

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

Moto X4 is a Flipkart exclusive smartphone and will be available from midnight of November 14.

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

Final Verdict, With all these features under its hood, Moto X4 looks like a very promising Mid-range phone, capable of redefining the market as Motorola did with its budget phones.

Dual Camera Setup, Stock Android, Powerful chipset, Perfect Front Camera makes it one of the best phones under 25000.

Brief Review:

Honor 9i comes with 64GB of storage and it is the first smartphone in the world to have 4 cameras. 2 in the front and 2 on the back side of the phone.

The build quality of Honor 9i 64GB is solid and it feels premium because of the metal unibody design. On the front, we have a5.9-inch full view display with Full HD+ resolution. The display is large but the size of the phone is still similar to other 5.5-inch display phones because of small bezels on the Honor 9i. The display is 18:9 or 2:1 aspect ratio which we have seen earlier in flagships. The display is sharp and vivid with good viewing angles.

Inside the Honor 9i we have a 2.3 GHz Octa-Core Kirin 659 processor.  In Antutu benchmarks the octa-core Kirin 659 scores 63800 which is similar to the score of Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 which scores around 63100 on most phones. The storage is 64GB with 4GB of RAMPlus there is a MicroSD card slot which can be used to increase the storage by up to 256GB. The slot is hybrid so you can either use 2 sims cards or 1 sim card and a MicroSD card. The 4GB RAM is capable of handling a lot of apps. Most of the phones in this range are coming with 4GB of RAM and we like that because anything more than 4GB looks like an overkill. It is not going to be useful for most users so it will be a waste of power which means lower battery backup.

The dual camera setup on both sides is the highlight of this device. Honor 9i is the first smartphone to have both dual rear camera and dual front camera. The back camera is a 16MP + 2MP dual camera setup while the front camera is a 13MP + 2MP dual camera setup. The camera with lower resolution is a monochrome sensor and another one is an RGB sensor. The dual camera setup helps to give a depth effect to your pictures which is also known as portrait mode. In our first few tests, the camera performance of both front and back cameras looked good. Portrait shots had the object in focus with blurred background. With initial impressions, we can say that it looks like one of the best camera experience in this range. Plus, Honor 9i also supports the feature where the image background can be blurred even after clicking the image. You can select any object you want to keep in focus and blue everything else.

The Honor 9i is running on EMUI 5.1 which is a skin based on Android 7.0. EMUI is not really bloated and performs well overall. There are few useful customizations as well to increase productivity. 

The Honor 9i has a 3340 mAH battery and you can expect a day of backup on a single charge which is decent for a large screen phone.

Honor 9i in black colour looks great. It wasn't available before but it is available now. Buy Honor 9i Black from Flipkart.

Other smartphones in this price range are Mi A1 and Moto G5S Plus. According to us, Honor 9i provides a much better value for money than other phones in this price range.

Brief Review:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sleek and Stylish, Beautiful AMOLED Display, Dual Front Camera, Front Camera Flash makes it one of the best phones under 25000.

Brief Review:

Moto G5S Plus is the updated version of Moto G5 Plus which was launched a few months ago. Things that have changed are the display size, camera, and storage.

G5 Plus had a 5.2-inch display and G5S Plus has a 5.5-inch display panel. Resolution is same at 1080p Full HD. The display is sharp and vivid and viewing angles are good. There was a 12MP camera on the back before but now we have 13MP + 13MP dual camera setup which helps to give bokeh effect to the pictures. Plus, you can change the background of an object in the picture using inbuilt features. Motorola has done a great job at integrating these features directly into the camera app of Moto G5S Plus. 

On the front, we have an 8MP camera with flash. Front flash is a great addition for selfie lovers and should help in improving quality in low light conditions. Overall both camera perform really well and it is safe to say that Moto G5S Plus offers best camera experience in this segment. On the storage side, we have 64GB internal storage now which was 32GB before in the G5 Plus. 

The processor is same Snapdragon 625 with 4GB of RAM. The hardware is good and G5S Plus is able to handle heavy games easily so it is a good mid range option for gamers as well.

The build quality has improved. Previously the sides of Moto G5 Plus were plastic but now it is all metal. The phone feels very solid in hand and has a premium look. The battery has been kept the same at 3000mAh. You should get a day of backup with a single charge. Moto G5S Plus comes with a fast charger so battery backup should not be a problem.

With these improvements, Moto G5S Plus has become a very solid competitor in the mid range segment. G5 Plus was launched at Rs 16,999 but the improved G5S Plus has been priced at Rs 15,999 at launch which is excellent pricing.

Mi A1 is another good option in this range which can take even better pictures. See our blog post: Comparison of Moto G5S Plus and Mi A1 Plus

Premium Metallic Build, Excellent Dual Camera, Stock Android, Fast Charging makes it one of the best phones under 25000.

9. Samsung J7 Max

Features

  • 4 GB RAM | 32 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 256 GB
  • 5.7 inch Full HD Display 1080p
  • Back Camera: 13MP
  • Front Camera: 13MP
  • 3300mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Black, Gold Colors

Best Price ₹15900



Brief Review:

Samsung On Max and J7 Max are the exact same phones with a slightly different chipset. On Max has Helio P25 and J7 Max has Helio P20. On Max is slightly more powerful. Samsung has done that to keep On Max Flipkart exclusive and the J7 Max is available on other website and offline as well. If you are buying online go for On Max as it will cost you 1000 less. 

Samsung is not known for value for money phones but the Samsung J7 Max is little different. The phone has a metal build which feels strong and looks good. The display on the front of Samsung J7 Max is a large 5.7 inch Full HD display with good colors and viewing angles. The display is covered with a 2.5D glass which gives it a premium look.

Above the display, there is a 13MP front camera with flash. Selfie lovers will love this combination of a high-resolution camera with a flash for low light conditions. Below the display, we have a fingerprint sensor which is quick and accurate. On the back of J7 Max, we have a 13MP camera with larger pixels for low light conditions. The performance of both front and back cameras is decent.

Inside the Samsung J7 Max, we have MediaTek P20 processor with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Samsung has gone with MediaTek instead of or Snapdragon or its own Exynos to keep the cost low. The P20 is a decent chipset with performance similar to Snapdragon 435 but it is not that power efficient. With a large display and a MediaTek chipset, the 3300mAh battery, the J7 Max will last a day with moderate usage. A battery size of 4000mAh would have been a better choice by Samsung.

Overall the Samsung J7 Max is a well-balanced device and is a good option for those who love Samsung brand. If you don't have any problems with other brands then Motorola G5 Plus is a good option which provides equally good camera and better overall performance because of a better chipset. If front and back camera is not your top priority and you want to save some money then take a look at devices like Redmi Note 4 and Lenovo P2.

Premium Metallic Build, Vibrant Display, Smooth Multitasking, Good Camera makes it one of the best phones under 25000.

  • Back Camera: 16MP

Brief Review:

Oppo announced Oppo F3 Plus in April 2017 and the phone was out in public in May 2017. Oppo F3 Plus boasts a giant 6.0-inch Full HD display at a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels at 16:9 aspect ratio, making a pixel density of ~367 PPI. The display is rich and vibrant with good brightness levels.  It is also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5, making it scratch resistant, In a unibody aluminium enclosure, this device feels oddly familiar. 

Oppo F3 Plus is a plus-sized phone which weighs heavy at 185 grams, still manages to be very thin at 7.4mm. Oppo F3 Plus is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 supported by at least 4GB of RAM in the base model with 64GB onboard storage or 6GB RAM with 64GB onboard storage. The device packs a lot of power and performs great on a various day to day tasks.  Oppo F3 Plus scored a respectable 4695 in multicore GeekBench and 1438 in the single core performance. When tested in the AnTuTu field, the device takes the benchmark score over 90k, by clocking at a whopping 91458. In the mid-range, the Oppo F3 Plus is a solid performer, with no performance issues in any task, surely it fetched water in front of flagships like Snapdragon 835, but in real life usage, you won’t experience much of a difference. The storage can be pumped up to 256GB via MicroSD through a hybrid slot.

Focusing on the cameras, Oppo F3 Plus showcases a great 16MP (f/1.7) rear sensor which has great low-light capabilities and a dual 16 MP + 8 MP, f/2.0 front sensor for selfies and stuff. The camera quality is great and the performs strongly in low light conditions too. With dual-pixel autofocus, It gets more accurate and noticeably faster. Dual cameras transformed smartphone photography and placing a pair of lenses at the front - not just the rear - may as well be the new cool, which didn’t become quite as much as was predicted.  The camera performs excellently but the software doesn’t add to the performance, Oppo surely needs to work on is camera app, as its a pure mess. Images from this one are not oversaturated and exhibit good contrast levels. It has got a slight yellow tint, which is not much of a deal, dynamic range is decent, the sharpness is strong. The software noise reduction is way too strong and might ruin the photo so beware. HDR Auto is not much impressive as well. The detail levels are awesome and make up good photos in nearly all conditions. The selfie camera doesn’t have the bokeh effect but does some good background work with the wide angle lens. There’s also a beauty mode, of course, its Oppo and they are so-called selfie leaders but my advice would be to steer clear of it. 

The Oppo F3 Plus is powered by 2-year old Android 6.0 Marshmallow which is rather shocking for a device aiming at upper mid-segment. And what’s charming is that the boys at Oppo aren’t working on the Nougat update, let alone Oreo. If that’s not enough insult to the software, you have ColorOS UI on top, that just messes things up more.  Talking about ColorOS, as with all the Chinese OEMs, ColorOS unsurprisingly bears a lot of influence from Apple’s iOS and it is quite visible through the interface. 

The Oppo F3 Plus has a giant 4000mAh battery that lasts a day with 7-8 hours of screen on time with a breeze. Charging on the F3 Plus is very fast, thanks to the VOOC charging support by Oppo. The device gets up from 0 to 58% in just 30 minutes.  For what its worth, Oppo F3 Plus has the good old headphone jack, how does that sound? Also its worth mentioning that the device doesn’t have any kind of IP rating so keep it way back from liquids and dust.  If you can get above the software relic we have here, Oppo F3 Plus is one of the best phone in that price bracket, certainly worth every penny. 

Swift performance., Best camera quality, Fast charging, Huge battery life. makes it one of the best phones under 25000.
