pocofone-f1
Overall Best Pick
  • Performance beast
  • Undermines most of the other flagships
  • Value for money device

As you might have already known, Pocofone is a new subsidiary of Xiaomi that was recently unveiled in the country.

The company’s first launch in the market, the Poco F1 is already the new talk of the town even before the device is being released to the hands of the public.

Build and design

For a premium budget smartphone priced under Rs.25,000, the Poco F1 has gone beyond our expectations. The metallic body feels firm and easy to hold in hand.

The curved edges helps this comparatively large device easy to hold and operate with a single hand.

The Poco F1 looks similar to many of the expensive flagships in the market with a vertical dual camera setup at the back and a notched display up front.

What makes this device stand out from the pack is the inclusion of a liquid cooling technology that will avoid the device from getting hot while gaming or any other intense resource hungry operations.

Mighty Snapdragon 845 – Yes, not a typo!

Most of the mid range smartphones today feature a perfectly capable, but not necessarily high end processors.

The last greatest SoC to be used in a premium budget smartphone was the Snapdragon 660 which is powerful and efficient.

The absolute beasts like Sandragon 845 was only reserved for the elite flagship smartphones that priced a fortune.

But not anymore.

The Poco F1 comes with the top of the line Snapdragon 845 processor for under Rs.25,000.

This beast is supported by a fast LPDDRX 8GB RAM to chew through whatever apps or games you throw at it.

This device also comes with a 256GB storage and gives the option to increase the storage capacity by a hybrid SIM slot.

Large 6+ display.. with a notch!

The Poco F1 features a large 6.18-inch full HD+ display that reproduces stunning lifelike images with true to life colours.

This IPS display has excellent viewing angles and gives a sharp and crisp output, thanks to the 403 ppi pixel density even with this large size.

The display has a notch up top, which is of fairly big size.

If you don’t like the intrusion of a notch, you can technically turn it off in the settings but with a slight reduction in screen real estate.

AI cameras at its best

The Poco F1 comes loaded with a rear dual camera setup that has a 12MP+5MP setup of which the secondary lens is a depth sensing unit.

Along with the physical depth calculations, the AI integration that the company has built in will give you possibly one of the best image output in the segment.

The front camera is a 20MP shooter assisted with infrared sensors to give clear selfies even during darker environments.

The only gripe we had with the camera department is that there is no Optical Image Stabilization available.

Battery

The Poco F1 has a 4000mAh Li-ion battery inside which will easily last over a day even with heavy use.

Xiaomi is already known for including higher capacity batteries on their certain models such as the Redmi Note 5 Pro.

This time the company has even bundled a Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 certified fast charger that will let you charge the device even faster.

Final verdict

If you can get hold of a unit while the lottery like flash sales in flipkart, this might be the best mobile money can buy in recent times.

The absolute beast of a performer, the Snapdragon 845 is the centerpiece of all attractions and won’t definitely fail your expectations – be it multitasking or gaming.

With the slightly modified, less cartoony MIUI interface, you are going to get a plethora of customization options as well.

Feature-Rich Smartphone

Oppo and Vivo, even though while owned by a single parent company, compete against each other in terms of new models and features.

The Oppo F11 Pro is the answer to Vivo V15 and priced in the same league offering tough competition to the former.

Design and Build Quality

Oppo stunned the smartphone world with the release of the Oppo Find X which featured an industry first motorized sliding camera. The same camera technology has been now ported into this much more affordable smartphone priced under Rs.25,000.

The Oppo F11 Pro has a very eye catchy design that looks amazing at the first look.

The back panel is made of polycarbonate with a gradient glass finish. It has a gradient glossy colour design which looks similar to those in the budget Realme devices.

The back is susceptible to scratches so do remember to use a transparent case if you want to conserve the style and that pristine look on your smartphone.

Display

The Oppo F11 Pro features a tall 6.5-inch TFT LTPS display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. This amounts to a pixel density of 409 ppi.

The visuals and texts appear sharp and detailed on this display and it offers great contrast levels and deep blacks. The colours are much more natural and vivid as well.

Processor and Performance

The Oppo F11 Pro is powered by the powerful midrange SoC, MediaTek Helio P70.

This chipset performs similar or even better than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660.

With 6GB of RAM, multitasking is great and the device breaks no sweat processing multiple resource-intensive apps sides by side.

6. Honor 10

honor-10
Smartphone with the Best Design
  • The elegant and futuristic style
  • System-wide AI enhancements
  • Ultrasonic fingerprint sensor

Honor 10 is the flagship smartphone from Huawei’s budget subsidiary Honor.

The company is emphasizing AI capabilities of this device, especially the camera.

The Honor 10 comes in attractive colour options that make it one of the most eye-catchy smartphones under Rs.25,000.

Processor and Performance

The Honor 10 features a powerful HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor coupled with 6GB of RAM.

Although the device lacks an expandable storage option, the phone comes with 128GB of internal memory out of the box.

For most users, this will be more than sufficient for storing their files and installing apps on the device.

The Kirin 970 performs so well without any lags even while having multiple apps open in the background.

The games run smoothly without any frame drops as well.

Display

Talking about the display, Honor this time decided to join the notch bandwagon. The Honor 10 features a 5.84-inch full HD display with an aspect ratio of 19:9.

The notch up the front of the device accommodates the sensors, earpiece and the front camera.

Miscellaneous

The fingerprint situation on this device is a bit interesting, to say the least. It is located on the bottom front chin of the Honor 10 under the glass.

Honor calls it as an ultrasonic sensor, which works as fast as any other direct to touch fingerprint sensors in the market.

This smartphone comes equipped with all the essential features that a device priced under Rs.25,000 should possess.

There’s an IR blaster on this phone to control your home appliances. Additionally, there’s the NFC feature for contactless payments.

Camera

Optics front, this smartphone has a 16MP+24MP rear camera unit.

The 24MP is a monochrome sensor that captures details in the frames precisely.

The AI part, we feel is a bit of an exaggeration from Honor’s part.

The AI effect produces over-processed photos which can be easily achieved by applying filters from one of the photo editing apps.

The camera app has a manual mode that will let you tweak finer aspects such as aperture size, white balance, ISO etc to get a more desired output.

Summarizing, the cameras on the Honor 10 are capable of producing images with great details, without the AI filters.

EMUI and Battery Life

Honor 10 comes with Android 8.1 out of the box with the latest EMUI 8.1 on the top.

EMUI skin adds a lot of extra features that are useful for tighter control over the operating system but frequent updates are a concern.

The 3400mAh battery holds pretty well and lasts well over a day with moderate to heavy usage.

Verdict

The Honor 10 from Huawei is a smartphone that’s a stunner in terms of design and looks. The phone has capable internals and performs excellently as well.

Samsung usually reserves major technological breakthroughs for its higher-end Galaxy S series and Note series smartphones.

Display

The Samsung Galaxy A50 features a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity U display with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels.

The notch on this display is small and doesn’t feel obtrusive while watching media content on this smartphone.
