Looking for a smartphone with face recognition feature? You are at the right place. In this article have covered the top 10 best phones with face unlock in India as of March 2019. Price of these smartphones varies from Rs. 10000 to Rs. 90000. So if you are looking for a face unlock smartphone under 10000, 15000, 20000 or 30000, you will find plenty of options.

If you are looking for phones in 10000 to 15000 segment then take a look at best phones under 10000 with a great camera.

Face recognition feature has been there for quite some time but it took off after iPhone X was launched 2 years ago. Now, almost all the latest phones are coming with face unlock. Face unlock is a useful feature and it does reduce fingerprint usage. You just have to look at the device and it unlocks. The negative point about face lock is that someone who looks similar to you, might be able to unlock the phone and sometimes the phone can be unlocked by using a picture as well.

Only Apple iPhone X has dedicated hardware for face unlock. All other phones rely on the front selfie camera for unlocking. The dedicated hardware on iPhone X makes it much faster and secure than on other devices. Still, other devices also perform well and most of them unlock the device in less than a second.

Let's take a look at the best face unlock phones available in India.

Brief Review:

Realme was a sub-brand of the very famous Shenzhen-based Chinese brand OPPO until 2018 when it separated to become an independent company. Realme focusses on mainly budget segment phones priced between 7k to 15K price segment. With offerings from Xiaomi and Samsung at this price point will the Realme 3 be able to keep up with the competition? Or will it be just another phone brand trying to survive in the ocean of budget smartphones?

Read on to find out as we list what’s good, average and bad in this brief review of the Realme 3.

Now when you first unbox the case of the Realme 3 you are pleasantly greeted with the phone followed by a 10W fast charger, a micro USB cable, and a clear film TPU case. Its good to see that Realme is providing a case right out of the box until you purchase a new one. Well, when you hear the word micro USB you might be thinking that its outdated right? But the fact is that this is a sub 11K phone and we can’t really complain much in this price range. An exception comes from Redmi Note 7 which impressively offers fast charging for a sub 10k smartphone.

Coming to the design first, the Realme 3 has a plastic body but a new gradient finish design giving it a much expensive look than it actually is. The fingerprint scanner sits behind the phone, although mention needs to be made of its slightly higher placement than the usual. Other design features include the vertical dual camera and a single LED flash set up at the leftmost corner. The primary camera comes with this yellow paint job around the rim of the camera that Realme calls the ‘Real Ring’.

Coming to the front gate, we have a large 1520 X 720 pixels 6.22-inch HD+ teardrop notch display giving it an 88.3 percent screen to body ratio. However, the phone comes with a considerable chin at the bottom. The display is 720p instead of 1080p and it is a bummer considering again it's previous offering the Realme U1 have 1080p displays. The quality of the display is however good for a 720p one. Again, what disappointing is the chin on the Realme 3 is actually larger than the company’s previous offering which is the Realme U1. The display is protected by gorilla glass 3 and has a max brightness of 450nits which is decent for this price point, though other manufacturers have moved to Gorilla Glass 5 and 6.

Coming to the camera front the Realme 3 houses a 13MP f1.8 primary sensor and a 2MP depth sensor for portrait shots. It is to be noted that this is the same setup seen in the previous Realme U1 which is not absolutely great in the price range but doesn’t disappoint the users either. The selfie camera is a 13MP f2.0 sensor which also comes equipped with face unlock. This, however, is again a downgrade from the Realme U1's 25MP selfie shooter. The camera captures decent images with good contrast and also supports AI capabilities to improve the images. Overall considering the phone priced at under 9000, the phone offers decent features and quality.  One fact about the camera is the rear camera is that the video recording capability is locked down to only 1080p despite the processor Helio P70 has 4K recording capability.

Staying on the processor front as mentioned earlier the Helio P70 from MediaTek is the animal running the show on this phone. The P70 is based on the 12nm manufacturing process and is an extremely capable processor as its almost on par with the Snapdragon 660 which is actually a good thing considering the phones lower price point. Even while gaming the Mali-G72 holds up to itself and games like PUBG mobile will surely play just fine on medium settings. Realme 3 AnTuTu score comes out at 1,37,901 which again confirms a strong performance.

The Realme 3 unlike some of its competition offers the best of both the world when it comes to SIM and Memory card slot. It provides both of them 2 SIM card slot and a separate Memory card slot which is expandable to a whopping 256GB. Other features include headphone jack at the bottom. Yes, we see the headphone jack as a feature as phone prices 5 times its own are removing it. Flanked beside the headphone jack are not 1 bit 2 microphone the micro USB cable and the speaker grill.

When compared to other phones in this price range that usually come with a Snapdragon 636, the P70 just crushes the competition. However, when compared with the Snapdragon 660 it falls slightly behind. So, performance wise the Realme 3 surely delivers.

Finally coming to the battery backup. The battery on the Realme 3 is a massive 4230 mAh. This is a major upgrade compared to the companies last offering which is the Realme U1. Combined with the 12nm P70 and a lower resolution 720p display, the phone delivers around 1.5 days of backup.

For the software, the Realme 3 comes with the latest Color OS 6.0 based on Android 9 Pie which comes with app drawer and other useful features. There are some bloatware apps that come installed on this phone. Also, there is no IP rating so you have to protect your phone from water and dust unlike Note 7 which offers splash-proof protection. 

Now, we have been talking about the price point of the Realme 3 for a long time and here are the variants that are gonna be made available to the end users. The Rs  8999 variant will get you 3GB RAM and the 32GB of internal storage. While the Rs 10999 variant will get you 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.

So, to sum everything up. The Realme 3, doesn’t really improve from its predecessor but makes some noteworthy change on the battery and processor department. It is true that the display is not all that great and the camera is also slightly above average but the 4230 mAh battery and the Helio P70 makes up for the other compromises.

According to us the best value for money is the base variant at rupees 8999 because at this price a P70 and a 4230 mAh battery is actually a great deal. So if the camera and display is not the topmost priority and performance and battery life is all that you want to go for this phone. At this price point, the phone faces stiff competition from Redmi Note 7 and Asus Zenfone Max M2

Brief Review:

Samsung had mainly focused its sale for its flagships. However, we saw a steep change in both its offering and strategy with their mobile sales when the M series arrived that provided huge value for the buck that you spent. Samsung has been offering phones in their A series since 2014. The A series mainly focus on offering some of the features that are seen in only the upper flagship models. This makes the A series an upper mid-range offering. The 2019 A series aims at hitting the perfect balance between price and features.

Compared to the Samsung Galaxy M30, this Galaxy A30 features more or less the same plastic back but a perfectly polished to give it a glass look. This is not necessarily a bad thing as it provides great ergonomics for the users to hold their device, It has the same Infinity-U notched Super AMOLED display which is 6.4 inch at FHD+ resolution. The total resolution is 2340 x 1080 pixels giving the A30 an overall 400+ ppi of density. What this basically converts to great media consumption with rich and punchy colors.

Coming to what is powering this Galaxy A30, we again have the same in-house built Exynos 7904 from Samsung. And this processor has proven its ground as a very capable contender as it was used before in the M20 and M30 too. There is really not much to complain about the performance side all thanks to the Exynos 7904. The Exynos 7904 is not the best processor available at this price range but however gets the job done. It is basically is a combination of 2 cortex A-73 clocked at 1.8 GHz. and 6 cortex A-53 clocked at 1.6 GHz. This phone has an AnTuTu score of 1,08,000. This is not the absolute best but like we said it gets the job done.

There is a 4GB RAM and 64 GB storage available on the phone which has a dedicated SD card slot to expand the memory to 512 GB with proper dual sim usage.

Let us now go to the camera review of Galaxy A30, It has a primary rear camera with a 16MP F1.7 lens and 5MP F2.2 ultra-wide lens and that’s it. The selfie camera upfront is a 16MP f2.0 sensor. The camera captures clear and sharp images with good contrast and color reproduction. The camera has been a strong department for Samsung always and it goes on well with this phone. The low light shots also have good details and the portrait shots are spot on in detecting the edges and blurring the background very well. Additionally, you get the capability to click ultra wide shots. Overall the camera works great and you will be able to capture good crisp moments with this camera.

The A30 also runs on the latest Android 9 pie with One UI on top. A lot of the experience that the users would be receiving would mainly be from One UI. One UI is basically the pinnacle of evolution of Samsung’s over the year refinements and what you're left with is much-improved UI with great features.

Coming to the battery, Galaxy A30 has a battery rated at 4000 mAh which provides a backup for a full day easily. It has a fast charger and a USB Type C port for charging. The phone feels lightweight in hand and only weighs 163 gm. Though there is no official confirmation however this article from GSMArena claims that the Samsung Galaxy A30 comes with an IP68 rating so it is water and dust proof.

Samsung has brought M series and A series to target the market of under 10k and 20k and this A30 does a decent job overall with a strong camera performance, good processor, dedicated SD card slot and an improved UI. For a price point of 17000, this is a very welcome phone from Samsung given we saw Samsung A6 and A6 Plus being launched with the pricing of around 20k and a specification of an under 10k smartphone. With this revamp, Samsung has up its ante to take on the budget segment.

Samsung A30 is available in blue and black colors and is available on Flipkart and Amazon.

Brief Review:

Redmi smartphones have been feeling the competitive pressure from the likes of Realme 2 Pro, Samsung M series. Redmi Note 6 Pro did not see much updates apart from camera and got a subdued response, not something Xiaomi is used to. Here we go through the Redmi Note 7 and bring out its top features, specifications and the pricing. Alongside, Redmi Note 7, Xiaomi has also launched the much awaited Redmi Note 7 Pro.

Redmi Note 7 comes with a 6.3 inch IPS display with a Full HD plus resolution. There is a dot notch on the top which holds the selfie camera and the phone has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The display looks perfectly bright and has punchier colors. It is not an AMOLED display but of great standard that your experience will not fall short while watching movies or playing games. The back of the phone is built of glass and has a gradient color look which we have seen in the phones from Honor similar to the Honor 10 Lite. It is the first time Redmi has introduced glass back in the budget segment phones. Previous Redmi Note series phones were not used to focus on looks but with Note 7, Xiaomi has also looked to strengthen this area as well.

The phone comes with the Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and back and the build quality is very strong. Xiaomi has been teasing the phone in many of its videos regarding its durability. The phone has decent build quality but not the best as it failed in the bend test. There is a transparent case bundled in the box so you can use it to further add protection to it.

For the processor, Xiaomi has finally decided to move ahead from the Snapdragon 636 for which they were heavily trolled on the social media. The Redmi Note 7 features the Snapdragon 660 processor and works very smooth. On the AnTuTu benchmark, Note 7 scores around 1,44,840 which is a good score for a phone at this price. Redmi Note 7 has been launched in 2 variants, 3 GB RAM with 32 GB storage and 4 GB with 64 GB storage. There is a hybrid sim slot to use it as a dual sim phone or expand the storage up to 256 GB, something which Xiaomi might want to update in future phones by bringing a dedicated storage space with dual sim support.

Performance wise, the phone works like a charm and we did not find any lag or heating issues even with extended usage. Redmi has been marketing the phone with the keyword “Next level” and we feel the phone truly delivers on the expectation. It is not a new chip in the market but powerful enough to support true multitasking. We have seen phones like Asus Zenfone Max 2 Pro and other being launched with the same and they have fared well even after months of usage but the previous phones used to work on the underclocked processor hence they did not get the true performance. Redmi Note 7 brings in the proper true variant of Snapdragon 660 which is not underclocked.

Now coming to the camera review of this the Note 7 review. Here Note 7 has a dual rear camera with 12 MP f/2.2 sensor and a 5 MP f/2.4 secondary sensor. We found the camera shots were decent with a good level of details. The color accuracy also looked good in most of the scenario. The portrait shots work well and are able to perfectly blur the background in most of the scenario to pop out the subject but there were some scenarios where some objects did not get blur. These small improvements can be made anytime with the software upgrades as the portrait works fine in most of the shots.

Note 7 and Note 7 Pro also introduces a Night Mode for low light images. We observed that this mode does a decent job by clicking a near to accurate pictures. The shots had limited noise and the lampshades, the sky seems to be captured properly with proper details of the surrounding.  The camera also supports HDR, short video, AI features and filters as part of other features of the camera and all of them to deliver on the expectations. The 4K video recording is disabled in the phone which was anyway above expectation from a budget segment smartphone.

For the selfie shots, Note 7 has a 13 MP sensor and supports HDR and AI mode. The selfie images are crisp with a good level of details. The portrait shots also blur decently well. Overall, the selfie camera has a lower Megapixel sensor from the Redmi Note 6 Pro 20 MP but the performance is slightly better. Overall the cameras are decent for the price range of 10k. If you are looking for a camera, then you should go for Redmi Note 7 Pro which comes with 48 MP Sony IMX568 sensor.

From the software perspective, the phone runs on MIUI 10 which is based on the Android Pie and brings in a lot of useful software features but the MIUI bloatware somewhat kills the fun. Depending on how used to you are to the MI apps and bloatware, you may feel comfortable with the software.

The battery has a capacity of 4000 mAh which easily lasts for more than a day in medium usage and at least a day with heavy usage. Though the battery capacity remains the same, the phone weight has gone a little up to 186 grams. On the other hand, Redmi has also taken the fight to next level by introducing a Type C port for charging which the industry experts have been waiting for a long time. The phone supports fast charging but the bundled charger is a 10 W charger so you will have to buy a fast charger to use the quick charge support

Redmi has kept the 3.5 mm headphone jack alive, there is also an IR blaster available to use your phone as a remote for home appliances. There is a notification LED available at the bottom. There is no IP rating as such but Redmi claims that the phone is splash proof but we have not tested it yet. For unlocking, this phone has a fingerprint sensor on the back and also supports face unlocking using the front camera and both the method work super fast and accurate.

Coming to the pricing, Redmi variants look to keep the whole budget segment engaged and happy. The 3GB-32GB variants costs Rs 9,999, 4GB-64GB costs 11,999 . Depending on your usage and budget, you can look to choose any of the above variants.

Overall the smartphone does a great job and we can say excellent given the price range of 10000 to 12000. The looks are gorgeous, the processor and the camera performance sees a decent upside. Introduction of Type C and fast charging are like icing on the cake. 

In comparison to the Redmi Note 7 vs Redmi Note 7 Pro, the major differences are in the processor and the camera performance. The looks, build quality, battery and charging remains the same. Xiaomi is currently fully focused to get the Redmi Note 7 rolling well and with such powerful specifications and features, we are sure Redmi is going to get a good reward from its user base

Brief Review:

Oppo K1 is Oppo's first smartphone in 2019 and it comes with plenty of features and at a surprising price point. With this pricing, it goes head to head with value for money brands like Redmi, Realme, Asus etc. So how is Oppo K1? Should you buy it? Find out in our brief review below.

Oppo K1 is a midrange smartphone and is priced in the 15000 to 20000 price segment. It comes with a reflective gradient back design where you will see shades of blue and purple as you come from top to bottom. The design is flashy so some people are going to love it and some will hate it. If you don't like it, there is a simple black color variant for you. 

On the front, we have a large 6.41 inch AMOLED display panel of 1080p Full HD+ resolution. AMOLED panels are something that we don't see in this price segment. The display panel is gorgeous with sharp colors and good viewing angles. The notch design is dewdrop and the bezels are thin all around which means the screen to body ratio is over 90%. Oppo has used an AMOLED panel to place a fingerprint sensor below the display. This in-display fingerprint sensor is also a first in this price segment. Before this, we saw it on Vivo V11 Pro which was priced around 25000 in India.

To run the apps and games, we get Snapdragon 660 AIE chipset with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The storage is expandable up to 256GB via the MicroSD card slot in the triple slot sim tray. The performance of the device is good and it can handle a lot of apps and games without any lag. The UI is a bit clunky though and there is a lot of bloatware which is not surprising because the phone runs on Oppo's ColorOS. Still, the overall experience is good.

There is a 3500 mAh battery inside the phone. Color OS is well optimized and doesn't drain the battery at all. You can expect battery backup of 1.5 days with normal use. The charger is usual 5V 2Amps and will charge the phone fully in around 2 hours 15 minutes. The charging port is still MicroUSB. It would have been great if Oppo has provided a USB Type C port here. 

For taking pictures, Oppo has provided a powerful set of cameras here. The rear setup is 16MP+2MP dual where 2MP is the depth sensor. The 16MP sensor has an aperture of f/1.7 which helps in getting more light in low-light conditions. The camera uses AI to detect various scenes and optimize the settings. Beauty mode and stickers are also available if you like to use those. The front camera is a 25MP sensor and takes beautiful selfies in almost all kinds of conditions. The pictures look good with plenty of details. Background blue in portrait shots also looks natural. 

Overall, Oppo K1 is a feature packed phone at an excellent price. AMOLED display, In-display fingerprint, powerful processor, good battery, good camera performance makes it one of the best phone under 15000 to 20000 segment. Other options in this range include Mi A2, Redmi Note 6 Pro, Moto One Power, and Nokia 6.1 Plus.

Brief Review:

Honor 10 Lite comes as a successor for the Honor 9 Lite which saw a great response from users in 2018. 10 Lite comes with major upgrades in the processor and looks domain and is the first phone from Honor in 2019.

Talking about the looks, this phone is an absolute killer which comes with the 6.21-inch long display having Full HD Plus resolution and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The back of the phone is built of plastic and gives nice reflections and design pattern due to the glossy finish. Surely, It attracts some fingerprint smudges but those are visible only at some point and with a TPU case you can keep the looks intact with no smudges. The top side of the phone has sim slots and secondary microphone and the bottom houses a micro USB port for charging, speaker output, 3.5mm headphone jack, and primary noise cancellation microphone.

On the design side given the pricing, the phones gets a 9 on 10.

The waterdrop notch adds to the look and holds the front camera but if you do not like it then it can be removed from the settings. The display has a 91% screen to body ratio and with Full HD Plus resolution and offers good brightness levels and punchier colors. Playing games or watching videos on the phone will be entertaining as the color reproduction is perfect.

For the performance, Honor has used the latest Kirin 710 processor. It is an octa-core chipset with four Arm Cortex A53 cores (for day to day applications) and four Arm Cortex A73 cores (primarily to boost clock speed in graphics intensive gaming sessions). There is a 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of internal memory to support the multitasking and storage requirement. However, you get a hybrid sim slot so you can either use it as dual sim or expand the memory and use in a single sim configuration. There is also a 6GB/64GB variant but that costs around 18k (4K more than the 4GB/64 GB variant) which we feel offers less value for money until you have a high multitasking requirement. 

Read about the Kirin 710 comparison with the other competitive Qualcomm Snapdragon processor

Honor 10 lite scores around 1,38,500 on the AnTuTu Benchmark which indicates powerful multitasking capability as was reflected in our review tests. We did not face any lag during our testing and the gaming performance was also spot on with no heating or latency issues with even the high-end games.

Now coming to one of the Honor stand out the domain, the camera performance. The rear camera comes with a dual rear sensor setup having a primary 13MP sensor (f/1.8 aperture) and a dedicated 2 MP depth sensor for the portrait shots. The photos come out with pleasant color and as usual, the Honor camera apps offer some extraordinary app features and AI support which enhances the color and contrast. In the daylight shots, the photos were clean and looked appealing because of the sharpness and quality.  For the portrait shots, the edge detection worked fine and the image captures a lot of details. Honor has also added a lighting effect feature for the portrait shots.

For the selfie shots, Honor 10 lite has a 24MP Sony IMX 576 sensor with different scene recognition. Overall image look crisp but the colors were sometimes a bit out of touch but with AI enabled, the camera does a better job.  In low light, the camera does a decent job but there was noticeable noise. Also, there is no stabilization available for the video.

For the software, this phone comes with Emotion UI (EMUI 9) which is built over the latest version of Android, Android Pie (9.0). The UI has some bloatware but comes with some features that can be really helpful. Other features like Party mode is available on Honor Lite 10, using which you can connect with multiple Honor phones nearby to play the same song creating a party like atmosphere. 

To get the phone to unlock, Honor has provided both fingerprint and face unlocking mechanism. Both methods are extremely responsive and accurate. The phone weighs around 160 gm and has a battery of 3400 mAh capacity. It can provide a backup of around 1 day and less if you are a heavy user.

Honor should have looked to give at least a battery capacity of 4000 mAh given the increasing use of the phone. There is a micro USB port to charge the phone. You get a standard 10W charger bundled in the box which charges the complete phone in around 2 hours as the phone does not support fast charging. Also, you do not get any IP rating or certification with this phone, so dust particles or water can harm the phone. The audio output is loud enough with decent sound quality but not something extraordinary compared to other phones in 10000 to 15000 price segment.

Overall, Honor 10 Lite is a lighter version of the Honor 10 and comes with pretty attractive design, powerful chipset, and a decent camera.

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:

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:

Pocophone is a sub-brand of Xiaomi like Realme is of Oppo and Pocophone or known as Poco has launched its first smartphone in India on 22nd August 2018. Pocophone has left everyone amazed with a very aggressive pricing despite being powered by the top shot Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 which we saw in the OnePlus 6 and the Zenfone 5ZPoco F1 comes with a notch display, a powerful battery, a good to go camera and everything that a user looking to spend 25k would look for. It smashes all the record of the value for money score and here in this review, we discuss the specifications, features and every detail on the Poco F1, which you as a prospective buyer would look for.

Poco F1 comes with a 6.18 inch Full HD plus display having a resolution of 1080 x 2246 pixels. The display has a notch design which is slightly big and holds the front camera and the IR sensor. The software gives you the option to disable the notch if you do not like it and use the phone like a bezel-less display phone. The screen is of IPS LCD type and is of good quality with perfect brightness and no issues could be observed even using it in the direct sunlight with auto brightness. The one thing which we found a little weird are the thin bezels even above the notch which does affect its looks and design. 

On the build quality side, the Poco Phone comes with a polycarbonate body which is a small compromise comparing the beautiful and gorgeous glass design pattern which we see in the phones today. That does not mean the phone ranks poor on the build quality, overall it is good with metal in between back and front and is decent at the price point considering what all it offers as discussed below. The 8GB 256 GB variant comes in a Kevlar back material which is textured and looks better with a better build quality and is priced at 29k. You can take a look at the Kevlar variant here. The Pocophone is not a fingerprint magnet and there are no smudges as we see on the smartphones with glass designs. Also, there is a translucent case bundled in the box.

Coming to the highlight of this Poco F1, The Performance, and here everyone has their jaw dropped as we witness the all-powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 which till date was only seen in the budget flagship and the flagship smartphone. The Snapdragon 845 in a budget smartphone at 21k is totally insane and has put a big question in front of other manufacturers to think of what should they introduce next. Snapdragon 845 needs no introduction as it was seen in the OnePlus 6 and the Zenfone 5Z. It is an octa-core processor comprising of 4x2.8 GHz Kryo 385 Gold & 4x1.8 GHz Kryo 385 Silver along with Adreno 630 GPU. The Poco F1 also witnesses the LiquidCool Technology, which keeps the CPU temperature maintained that allows the Snapdragon 845 to perform to its full capacity when you are gaming in the super heavy mode.

The phone comes with a 6GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage which can be expanded up to 256 GB with the hybrid micro SD card slot. Without any iota of doubt, the performance is mind-blowing and the RAM management is amazing, the multitasking is super smooth, the gaming performance is brilliant and we did not find even a small hiccup in our usage. The Poco F1 scores a massive 285302 on the Antutu Benchmark shattering any record that existed for a smartphone priced around 20000. On the GeekBench, the Poco F1 scores, 2467 on the Single Core and 9081 on the multi-core, and we would ask you, what else would you get for only Rs 20000. Full marks on the performance to the master of speed, Poco F1.

On the next important aspect of the Poco F1, the camera. Here we get a dual read camera placed vertically in the middle of the phone with 12MP Sony IMX363 + 5MP Samsung, f/1.75 sensors and dual LED flash. The colours in the photo look rich and the shots are pretty much detailed. The images are sharp and you are going to love it for 21000 bucks. Frankly speaking, the camera is not as great as the OnePlus 6 priced at 35000 but gives a tough competition to it.  There is support for 4K videos but the Poco F1 only supports Electronic Image stabilization (EIS) and does not support Optical Image stabilization (OIS). In the portrait mode, the edge detection in bang on and we could see even the hairline edges are very well aligned. There are some AI optimizations in the colours using the object detection. The low light shots are also very bright and contain very less noise, OnePlus 6 is better but only by a tad margin as it captures more light and has slightly better low light images. Also, OnePlus 6 has better image stabilization because of the presence of OIS and the difference could be seen in the videos recorded at 4K resolution of Poco F1 and OnePlus 6.

The front camera comes with a 20 MP sensor and it also supports the portrait mode. The shots are full of details and you might even look better than what you look in the real life. At the pricing of 21k, we are in love with what the camera has to offer. A budget flagship capability in a budget pricing in what Poco offers. The camera configuration, is similar to the Redmi Note 5 Pro and people had questions that if the camera performance in any better? So here, we do not think we should compare, because the camera image quality on the Poco F1 is far better and class apart than the Note 5 Pro which is also directed by a far better image signal processor in the Snapdragon 845.  Poco F1 has the best ever camera seen in any phone in India for a pricing of 21000.

The PocoPhone F1, runs on MIUI 9.6 with POCO specific optimization and is build over the Android Oreo. Poco has promised an update to the MIUI 10 and also the Android P (Pie). The MIUI has some bloatware but the POCO has enabled the gesture recognition which if enabled on your device removes the three button from the bottom and reads your gesture for all the tasks, something similar to what we saw in the iPhone X.

Poco F1 not just comes with a massive processor but a huge battery life. it features a non-removable 4000 mAh battery and gives a screen on time of around 6.5 to 7 hours and with medium usage, you can easily run with the phone for at least 1.5 days. Fro the heaviest of usage, you may still see a battery backup for a full day, this speaks volume of the optimization that comes with the phone and the efficiency of the Snapdragon 845 processor. The Poco F1 has a USB type C port and supports Quick Charge 3.0(quickly charges up the first 20%) with a fast charger bundled in the box. The total time it takes for the charging is about 100-110 minutes.  Poco F1 is not water or dust resistant and there is no IP rating so keep it protected from any damage.

For the unlocking, Poco F1 comes with a fingerprint sensor just below the rear camera and is super quick. It takes less time than the blink of the eye. For the face unlocking, which is also very accurate and fast comes with an additional feature of IR sensor, which enables you to unlock the phone even in darkness. It has a stereo speaker where the main speaker is located at the bottom and the earpiece is used as the second speaker but you do not get a true stereo speaker like seen in the Zenfone 5z but it is decent enough for the pricing. 

After all this, we can just say that Poco has entered the market with a band and is a total game changer for the industry. Without any doubt, the Poco F1 is the best smartphone under 25000 and we can hear the trumpets of the thumping victory this Poco F1 from Xiaomi is going to blow.

The Poco F1 sale starts from 29th August 2018 and is exclusively available on Flipkart via the flash sale. For the 21k variant, you are going to see huge demand as was for the Note 5 Pro. There is a launch offer with Poco F1 where you can get additional Rs 1000 discount if you pay via HDFC credit and debit card.

Brief Review:

As it has been for the past couple of years, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is not the lone warrior Samsung unleashed before the world. The plus model, aimed at people who love big smartphones is named Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus. Same as Galaxy S9, the S9+ is not monumentally different from last years S8+. The device looks identical to S8+ with a few minor changes.

S9+ just like the S9 refines the best phone Samsung has ever made and takes it all the way further. It follows the same glass sandwich design with metal unibody and glass encasing. The brilliant infinity display is the one and the only thing on the front, which is 6.2-inch diagonally, Super AMOLED display with a breathtaking resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels at 18.5:9 aspect ratio (~529 PPI).

We don’t need to tell you what infinity display looks like, Its one of the best displays out there, probably the best on a smartphone if you can take a little over saturation of colors. The display topples iPhone X display to rank the best display. It is HDR10 compliant and with everything rest aside, in a nutshell, the display is the best in the market.

The Galaxy S9 Plus is not much different when it comes to performance from its smaller brother. The device is also based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 845/Exynos 9810 and is what you expect from every flagship in 2018. Where it is different from S9 is that S9+ plus gets high on RAM this time around, with 6GB RAM compared to 4GB on the S9. The tear through all your graphics workloads, Adreno 630 is onboard.

The device comes in two versions with 64/256GB of onboard storage which is also expandable up to 400GB using MicroSD. The slot is hybrid though so you cannot use 2 sim cards and a MicroSD at the same time.

Samsung is very proud of the cameras on the Galaxy S9 and S9+. This time around, Samsung has decided to create more distinction between S9+ and S9 by including a dual camera setup on the S9+ while S9 has to go with a single camera setup. Both the primary cameras on the devices are identical with variable aperture - the first in a smartphone. The primary sensor is a 12MP, f/1.5 + f/2.4 variable aperture sensor while the other one is also a 12MP, f/2.4 wide-angle sensor for depth information.

The smartphone retains the same 8MP f/1.7 sensor on the front as in case of last year’s Galaxy S8+. Galaxy S9+ also catches up to iPhone X with super slow-mo video capabilities which enable the smartphone to record at 960fps.

Samsung Galaxy S9+ similar to Galaxy S9 runs on Android Oreo, tweaked a lot by Samsung. The software is fast and responsive but carries a boatload of bloatware and redundant apps by Samsung. The UI is minimal and pleasing to the eyes.

The Galaxy S9+ is IP68 certified same as Galaxy S9 - so you can take it out in rain or close to a pool.

Finally, Samsung has put stereo speakers in a Galaxy smartphone, up front. It keeps the headphone jack, which is certainly rare in 2018. The battery is a 3500mAh one which is not enough for a 6.2-inch smartphone in 2018. It will pull off the day if you are an average user, otherwise, do keep a charger around. Talking about charging, Fast charging is available along with wireless charging on the Galaxy S9+. Samsung also sells a wireless charger which made it to our list of best wireless chargers of 2019.

Brief Review:

‘One more thing’ has been the words Apple doesn’t take colloquially, and whenever you hear these, then something truly extraordinary is about to dazzle. The same happened at the end of Apple’s 2017 September event. Despite all the leaks and rumours, the love and outpouring for iPhone X didn’t seem to falter. iPhone X is in itself a new direction for the iPhone since its original launch in 2007. It has been 10 years and Apple has a clear vision of changing the world with iPhone X for the next decade. The smartphone takes the ‘bezel-less’ motto of 2017, way too seriously and all you’ll see on the front of the device is that giant and magnanimous display which goes edge to edge, except that cut out up to infamously known as the top ‘notch’.

iPhone X features an all-new OLED display panel with an all-new size of 5.8 inches with a resolution of 1125 pixels by 2436 pixels. The display is called Super Retina HD by Apple and is undoubtedly the best display on the market, ever, according to rating agency DisplayMate. The form factor is totally different from what we’ve been seeing with the iPhones from past 3-4 years. It has an edge to edge front with a top-notch which has people divided into hate camps and embrace camps. Apple iPhone X is as premium as it gets with a glass back same as that on an iPhone 8 and is surrounded by metal bands as the rim. The iPhone X being the most astonishing smartphone of the year is also the most breakable phone of the year with huge repair costs involved, so if you are getting one, do buy a good case, some of the best ones are listed below.

iPhone X is powered by the same mighty A11 Bionic on the inside which has no parallel in performance erstwhile in the industry, coupled with 3GB of RAM, same as iPhone 8 Plus. We can’t really say more about the absolute powerhouse this device is. The Antutu benchmark score of the iPhone X is approximately 226000, beating any other Android phone in the market by at least a margin of 25%.

Since the launch of Pixel 2, the mobile smartphone camera standards have been redefined. After much anticipation on the camera quality of iPhone X, It doesn’t shy back with a score of 101 at DxO Mark, instils which is greater than the Pixel 2. While the Pixel 2 is the best smartphone camera no doubt, iPhone X is more or less equal. On the rear, we have a dual camera setup of 12MP and 12MP sensors of which one is a telephoto lens for 2X optical zoom without any loss in the image quality. The dual sensor setup n iPhone X is now vertical to enhance AR apps with similar sensors as on the iPhone 8 Plus but Optical Image Stabilization(OIS) on both the sensors. Portrait mode gets better and Portrait lighting debuts on the iPhone, with which you can now create studio lighting effects on your photos, that’s just way cool but still in beta, so don’t put your hopes high.

On the front, we have a 7MP camera sensor with f 2.2 aperture, you have that infamous notch although it houses state of the art FaceID tech. We have a TrueDepth camera system, which enables FaceID and portrait selfies, which of course looks totally awesome. And you have Animoji now on the X as the exclusive, we can’t possibly tell how much fun they are.

Read all about how the Face ID from Apple works.

To give emphasis on the Face ID proprietary technology, Apple has removed the fingerprint sensor from the iPhone X, and it takes a lot of courage and trust in their Face ID technology in taking this huge step. Apple has always redefined the market and is undoubtedly the leader in terms of innovation. 

iPhone X comes with iOS 11, as Apple calls it, “The Most Advanced, Secure, Intuitive Mobile Operating System” but this isn’t totally the case this time around as iOS 11 still appears to be a late beta product. It certainly needs more work, especially in the battery and efficiency department. As with others, iOS 11 is beautiful, intuitive and super secure as always, more than anything you can get.

iPhone X doesn’t shine in the battery numbers, It has a 2716 mAh juice pack, which surely sounds measly in the world of 4000mAh batteries but Apple has always been about efficiency. And despite the battery power of 2716 mAh, It's  not as bad as it seems, iPhone X can readily give a handsome 6-7 hours of onscreen time which is enough to stay awake for a full day usage, all thanks to the new OLED panel.

Apple iPhone X, as in iPhone 8, is protected by IP67 certification which means that is is completely dust resistant and also water resistant for up to 1 meter of depth for 30 minutes. Read everything about what IP ratings mean.

The phone supports fast charging but the box does not have the fast charger. The box also contains ear pods and a cable to convert charging jack into the headphone jack. The microphone also acts as a speaker which gives the sound, a stereo effect.

Overall, iPhone X is the best phone in terms looks, is most powerful and clubbed with great innovation. The product though is overpriced if we see the specification, but comes with the Apple brand and undoubtedly has great features which the Android phones would take a few years at least to master.
