HONOR 8 LITE

 The Honor 8 Lite smartphone has a 5.2″ (13.21 cm) display and Its running on Android v7.0 (Nougat) OS. The gadget is controlled by an Octa core (2.1 GHz, Quad core, Cortex A53 + 1.7 GHz, Quad core, Cortex A53) processor matched with 4 GB of RAM. To the extent the battery is concerned it has 3000 mAh. It has a 12 MP rear camera and the front snapper is controlled  a Back-illuminated sensor (BSI).

Design and display

The Honor 8 Lite is not light-weight as it comes with a combo of metal and glass, which gives a “false” feeling of premium-ness.Its the same design as the Honor 8, the smartphone’s back is covered with a layer of glass while the front has a 5.2-inch screen with 2.5D glass. These, when added up with the brushed metal side panels and 7.6mm thin profile doesn’t just make the handset look more elegant but also fragile at the same time.

There’s a rear camera on the top left corner with LED flash, a fingerprint sensor at the center and a company branding below. There are two speaker grilles at the bottom, of these just one is the main speaker while the other mirrors the audio coming from the main speaker. A micro USB port lies in the middle of the speaker.
The volume and power buttons are on the right side and within a thumbs reach but unfortunately not as tactile as we’ve noticed in some other handsets. The SIM card and microSD card slot lie on the left side bezel, while the front-facing camera lies on the speaker grille placed above the display. There is also a multi-colour LED notification light for alerting users.

Performance and camera

Performance is one of the departments where the Honor 8 Lite falls short of impressing us. Although it is the same processor (Kirin 655) that powered the Honor 6X, which was an impressive handset in itself, it fails to make the Honor 8 Lite run fluently. We encountered lags in certain places while playing heavy games and multitasking. For instance, we tried the newly-launched graphic-heavy Injustice 2 and the device hanged every single time. Playing full-HD videos from the storage was no problem per say.

The octa-core processor (4+4 Cortex A53 cores with Mali-T830 MP2 GPU) is supported by 4GB RAM, which is likely the saving grace for the handset’s processing performance. We ran both Antutu and Geekbench on the Honor 8 Lite and as expected got low scores of 57739 and 816,3348 (single-core, multi-core) respectively.

Android OS and the user interface on top also plays an important part in the performance section. After using the smartphone for sometime along with our experience with previous Honor devices, we can say that Huawei has done an impressive job with its EMUI. The Honor 8 Lite runs the same version as we saw in the Honor 8 – EMUI 5.0, which has the comparatively new Android 7.0 Nougat as its base. EMUI does seem a different initially with its overlayed options and more. But it is easy to find your way around.

A ton of features and customizations can be found if you dig the Settings option deep enough. You can enable/disable 4G calling, switch the home screen style along with app layouts and grid customizations, select a combination of navigation keys that are placed at the bottom of the display, customize the fingerprint sensor to take images, answer calls and more. Similar to Honor 8, the Honor 8 Lite also lets you customize the fingerprint gesture to show the notification panel, browse photos and more, a function we are a big fan of.

The fingerprint sensor worked with accuracy everytime during our use. We mostly used it for unlocking the device.

For better productivity, you can activate a floating dock, switch to one-handed UI design, activate motion control features such as flip to mute as well. Honor has its own HiBoard when you swipe to the extreme left on the main home screen. For those unaware, HiBaord is Honor’s way of letting users search for content from both inside and outside the device. It can be deactivated by long pressing on the home screen and navigate to the ‘Settings’ option.

The dual-SIM smartphone comes with a hybrid microSD card slot. So you can either have two SIM cards activated at once or a single SIM activated with extra storage capability.

Camera is not the best in the segment but is impressive enough to fulfill the needs of majority of customers. The Honor 8 Lite comes with a single 12MP rear autofocus camera with f/2.2 aperture and LED flash. The colour are well saturated and the images shot in both daylight and artificial light conditions are impressive. The images shot in low light are equally good with much lesser noise levels as compared to others during low-light shots. There is one-touch access to most of the frequently-used features such as video capturing, switching between front and rear cameras, filters, Beauty mode, gallery and the enable/disable flash option.

Swiping towards left will give you the camera and video settings where you can change the aspect ratio, and toggle touch to capture, smile capture and other features. On the right there are different capturing modes to choose from. There is an 8MP front-facing camera with wide-angle lens, which makes taking selfies easier.

Battery, being one of the deciding factors in a smartphone, won’t let you down. The Honor 8 Lite uses a 3000mAh battery, which in our day-to-day usage ran for over 9-10 hours constantly on a regular use. Light users will be able to stretch the running time to over 12 hours easily.

 

Honor has thrown in a couple of battery-saving features in its 8 Lite as well. You can activate the Power Saving Mode, which like seen in other handsets with similar options, limits the background app activity, reduces or disables visual effects and sounds, disables background email retrieval and more. There is also an ‘Ultra Power Saving’ option that runs only select apps. What’s nifty is the handset’s constant reminder from time to time about the apps that hog power in the background.

 Verdict

Honor 8 Lite does leave a good impression in the battery, OS and camera department. These three factors does make it one of the potential contenders in the particular price point. Design, to some extent, is decent but nothing that you aren’t familiar with. It does come with useful features baked right inside the UI and the obvious new features that come with Android 7.0 Nougat. But not everything is impressive with Honor 8 Lite.

 The smartphone’s display is just about average and smudge-friendly, which could be bothersome for users. The processor, though being one of the latest ones, struggles when it comes to multi-tasking between heavy apps or smooth handling of games. It, however, will be able to get most of the job done.

Xiaomi Redmi 4 Full Review | Budget Smartphone Under 10k

Xiaomi launched in India in the year 2014 and since then the budget smartphone market has been treated like the junior flagship segment of india because we know, India is a place where most of the people look for a smartphone which is less in price with impressive specification.
And xiaomi did just that.The company has been climbing up a positive sloping graph since then and recently launched a couple of devices in the name of Redmi Note 4 and Redmi 4A. While Redmi Note 4 (priced at Rs 12,999 4GB+64GB) has the potential to destroy any mid range or even flagship devices, in some case, Redmi 4A, on the other hand, is the cheapest smartphone in India at Rs 5,999 from the Chinese giant.
However,Xiaomi announced its Redmi 4 in India and the device is priced at Rs 8,999 and it is the successor to last year’s redmi 3s which was another best seller for the company.

Design

Yes, we have a metallic unibody design  again but, at this price range, you can’t expect for something different, can you? Besides, Redmi 4 doesn’t feel like a  10K device. In fact, when I first took the device in my hands it felt really compact. While most of it might have to do with my recent obsession with 5.5-inch smartphones, Xiaomi Redmi 4 offers a comfortable on-hand usage even if you have small hands. The volume rockers and the power button lies on the right while we have the dual hybrid SIM tray slot on the left. Up top, we have the 3.5mm headphone jack, the secondary microphone and an infrared blaster. At the bottom, we have the microUSB with speaker grills on each side although the left one is actually a microphone. Flipping the device to the back side, we get a fairly similar camera and fingerprint placement while the front now has a 2.5D curved screen which, in my opinion, does make a difference here. I also had a chance to keep the Redmi 3S and Redmi 4 side-by-side and judging by how these devices feel in hand, I instantly picked the Redmi 4. To sum up the design part, Redmi 4 is more like a miniature version of Redmi Note 4. Redmi 4 will come in Gold and Matte Black colour options and measures at 139.2 x 70 x 8.7 mm weighing 150 g. At the end of the day, you don’t get anything new here so don’t go expecting a design overhaul but as they say, don’t fix it if it’s not broken.

 

Up front, we have a 5-inch 720p IPS LCD display giving you a pixel density of 294 ppi. We have the 2.5D curved display now and rest remains the same. By default, the colour on the Redmi 4’s display is on the warmer side, although you can change it by going into display settings. Apart from that, the display does get decently bright indoors but you might struggle sometimes when you are outdoors in bright sunlight. Also, my unit did take a lot of scratches, so there is a possibility that Xiaomi has skipped any kind of protection. Therefore, a screen guard recommended. Else, the auto-brightness worked just as it should.

Hardware and Software

When it comes to hardware, Xiaomi Redmi 4 is not a major upgrade. The device comes with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 chipset which is not a whole lot different from Snapdragon 430 found on Redmi 3S or 3S Prime. The Snapdragon 435 is an Octa-Core chipset clocked at 1.4 GHz and is paired with the same Adreno 505 GPU. Besides, we get 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which is further expandable via microSD. Out of this 32GB internal storage, you get about 24GB as user accessible which can be used to put in your favourite apps, music, photos etc. The Redmi 4 runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow with MIUI 8.2 on top.

redmi4 back

Now converting all this in practical terms, Redmi 4 will not stutter in your daily course of usage. The 3GB RAM and a slightly improved Snapdragon 435 chipset make sure that you get most of the tasks done seamlessly. While the device surely takes a time to open up some heavy apps and games might take ages to load, sometimes, I rarely noticed any lag in the UI. Apart from stock Android, I have started to like MIUI 8 over time especially when it offers features like Dual-apps, One-hand mode, Lite mode, Quick Ball, and my favourite – Second Space. Unlike the regular option to use two profiles on the same android device, Second Space actually means it literally.

You can save a separate fingerprint password for two or more profiles and the device will automatically recognise a particular fingerprint scanner and login to the respective profile. Apart from this, MIUI will not give you an app drawer rather your apps will be lined up in pages right on your homescreen. For the bloatware, MIUI does come with some Mi apps and some third party apps like Amazon Kindle, Facebook, WPS Office. Fortunately, the latter can be uninstalled while the former, presumably, cannot be removed. Another downside with MIUI is the amount of time it takes for the first boot.

For the gaming performance, the Redmi 4 actually excelled by expectations. I played a bunch of light puzzle games along with some heavyweights like Need For Speed – No Limits, Asphalt 8: Airborne, N.O.V.A Legacy etc. Bearing some rare hiccups inside the gameplay, I never noticed any frame drops or lags while playing all these games. The device did warm up a bit but not up to the point it became uncomfortable.

Camera

Although the megapixel count is same between the Redmi 3S Prime and Redmi 4, the camera performance has definitely improved. Stating the numbers first, the Redmi 4 comes with a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF and LED flash while at the front we have a 5-megapixel f/2.2 camera. Both the cameras can record 1080p videos at 30 fps. You will not get disappointed with the camera performance at all. The device manages to click some good photos during broad daylight with some good amount of detailing and colours were quite close to the source during the testing period. The phone also took some good macro shots and it was quick to focus the subject.

redmi 4 camera

 

Coming to the low light condition, the camera does a decent job here as well. Though you might see some grains in the images, but the overall quality of the images was just fine. The camera UI is pretty simple to use and comes with different modes including Panorama, Timer, Audio, Manual, Straighten, Beautiful, HHT, Scene and Tilt-shift. There are numerous filters as well. The front camera does a decent job in daylight, but same cannot be said for low lights. Lastly, I found that the HDR mode adds some dynamic effects in the image. The mode sometimes adds some charm to the photos, but otherwise, it does the opposite job as well. But, overall, like I said before, the performance of the camera is at par with the rest of the competition.

 

Battery

Apart from the impressive performance at an affordable price, Xiaomi is also known for putting in some huge batteries in their smartphones. Following the pattern, the Redmi 4 comes with a 4100 mAh battery inside. The battery takes up quite a bit to charge and is also non-removable so this is what you get. For the battery life, I was able to get about 6 hours of Screen on Time (SoT) with almost 2 days of usage. Starting the day at 7 AM in the morning, the Redmi 4 easily lasted to till about 6 PM, the next day. My normal day would include web browsing, Facebook, WhatsApp, loads of YouTube, about one hour on calls and about half an hour of music listening. Also, these battery stats are based on Reliance Jio network so you might save on power if you use more Wi-Fi.

redmi 4 screenshots

 Connectivity

In terms of connectivity, Xiaomi has given all the necessary options including Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS with A-GPS etc. There is a fingerprint scanner at the back which is accurate but a bit slow to respond, sometimes. Meanwhile, the earpiece performs just fine and the single bottom firing speaker will not impress you.

Xiaomi Redmi 4 Review: best budget smartphone for 2017?

Xiaomi Redmi 4 review is here! Is this success better than the Redmi 3s and 3s Prime? What all is improved? What are the pros and cons and should you buy it?

Verdict


So the sub-10K category which was currently ruled by the Redmi 3S Prime can gracefully be passed on to the Redmi 4. Priced at Rs 8,999, Xiaomi has done necessary improvements while keeping the rest of pillars almost similar. Compared to the Redmi 3S, you get a slightly better processor, a better camera, a slightly more compact design and a new matte black colour variant. If you are looking for a sub 10K device and Redmi Note 4 is too big for you, this one is meant for you.

New Nokia 3310 Full Review | Most Awaited Mobile Phone

Nokia 3310 Reloaded

The most awaited mobile phone is eventually here, however does the new Nokia 3310 live up the hype? Is it everything your rose-tinted view of the year 2000 is crying out for?

not many stuff can sincerely be defined as “iconic”, let alone pieces of generation that are right here today and long gone the next day. The authentic Nokia 3310, loved internationally for Snake, its obvious indestructibility and simplicity, is probably about as close as devices get.

Keypads – Do you remember ?

Nokia 3310 keypad view

The “new” Nokia 3310 is extra like a homage to the unique than a straight-up remake. It looks vaguely like the authentic, way to its blue and gray colour scheme, oval buttons and Nokia logo. however the display – now a 2.4in QVGA colour beast – and the body are vastly stepped forward, at the least within the geographical regions of a “candybar” feature cellphone that could be at home in the year 2010.

The back comes off to reveal the detachable battery, micro-sim and microSD card slot – here you’ll need the older, barely large sim card size, no longer the modern nano-sim, or at least an adapter. The front is fixed, so pick out your coloration accurately.

in the top there’s a microUSB slot for charging, which means no more tiny pin Nokia charger, and the bottom has some thing even Apple’s iPhone 7 can’t boast: a headphone jack.

nokia 3310 colors

Is the display as sharp as the latest apple iphone 7 plus ? No, not even close.But It’s
very colourful and has very good horizontal viewing angles,If not vertical ones,and can just about be read outdoors.It has buttons
including a D-pad,select,two menu buttons,call and hang-up buttons and 12 number keys.

It’s not same as the earlier 3310’s select,up,down and cancle buttons,but its running on a same software either.The new 3310 runs Nokia’s new-old Series 30+ with an “all new user interface” and many more navigation options.

New Nokia 3310 Specifications

  • Screen: 2.4in QVGA LCD (167ppi)
  • Storage: 16GB + microSD card (up to 32GB)
  • Operating system: Nokia Series 30+
  • Camera: 2MP rear camera with LED flash
  • Connectivity: 2G, Bluetooth 3.0, FM radio and USB 2.0
  • Dimensions: 115.6 x 51 x 12.8 mm
  • Weight: 80g

Nokia 3310 2017: Review of Specifications + Opinions!

Storage & Battery Life

The new Nokia 3310 doesn’t have much features,but it’s fast enough to mimic what I remember from the 2000s. It’ll send texts,make calls and has a 2G internet browsing capabilities.There’s no 3G or 4G connectivity,which means you’ll not able to use jio sim in this mobile.

There’s a 16MB of storage,but in reality you’ll only get 1.4MB of storage rest is taken up by the operating system including
apps.For storing music,pictures and videos you’ll need microSD card. It’s actually disappointing that in INR3500 you can buy 500 times the storage(8GB) in a tablet.
So,it is recommeded to buy a microSD card with it.

Battery life is measured in days instead of hours and with pretty much usage I dropped less than a quarter of the battery a day.You can use it for regular usage for calls ,texts and a bit basic web browsing.Nokia says the new 3310 lasts a month on standby which is pretty awesome.

Snake Game

snake game nokia 3310

Ohh yeah, the new
Nokia 3310 has Snake game in it,but its looks nothing like what I remember.By default it’s set to a timed mode,rather than out-and-out survival.There are power-ups and bombs.This time snake has to eat apples which is pretty funny.

It’s quite fun, and I did get a nostalgia hit of it,but I quickly rememberd how much better
Space Impact is.

Camera

new nokia 3310 camera

The new Nokia 3310 has a 2 megapixel camera. Its snaps photos,can shoot video.You can even zoom.

But the pictures are really bad.They look
normal on the phone’s screen,but get them off to another smartphone or pc and they look horrible.Its just has a very basic camera.

there’s no front camera,but it’s not difficult to turn the phone around and point it at your face and the flash is useless.

Price

You can buy this phone from offline stores in around INR3500 and its comes in four colours.

Verdict

As the new Nokia 3310 is a basic phone with basic features in a novelty,nostalgic shell.the bettery life is awesome,it makes calls and the browser is surprisingly very good as of a non-smartphone.

Its good for making calls but texts take ages to write,you get hand cramp in the process,and you’re not even really,truly disconnected from the internet world.You can check your emails.

This phone is not for those who want to play games or surf internet at lightning speed,but for the classic lovers who like it vintage and nofrills.

 

Pros: long battery life, 3.5mm audio jack, microSD card slot, removable battery, camera, flash/torch, Snake game

Cons: tedious T9, too expensive, no Spotify,2G-only
