OnePlus Nord 2 5G Unboxing And First Impressions ⚡ Dimensity 1200, 90Hz AMOLED, 50MP Camera & More

The much awaited OnePlus Nord 2 is here. After a long time OnePlus seems to be back with a Flagship Killer. OnePlus made its name as Flagship Killer & this time we have the OnePlus Nord 2(successor of the OnePlus Nord). When it comes to performance, battery & a lot other things, it’s a huge leap. This is the 1st phone to come with OPPO-OnePlus integrated code based OS. There are many new things in the OnePlus Nord 2 & we’re going to unbox it & give its first impressions. We’ll tell you all about it & I’m really hoping it comes close to the Flagship territory. It comes with a black box with NORD written on it. Box Contents – Upfront you get the phone & there’s Nord’s signature blue colour. There’s documentation with stickers, red cable membership card, quick start guide & safety information. There’s a sim card tool, a Type C cable in signature red & a 65W Warp Charge fast charger.

There’s a good quality case which we’ll put on OnePlus Nord 2 Looks – Should I call it OnePlus Nord 2 or OnePlus 9 Lite because it’s very similar to OnePlus 9. It looks familiar with 2 big sensors on the OnePlus Nord 2. This is Haze Blue color, you get Grey Sierra & Green Wood color options too. In Hand Feel – It feels slightly hefty & is a little on the heavy side, but it’s built very well. It feels premium, fits well in the hand & it also looks close to a flagship phone. Build Quality – The case is good & bulky but it looks nice with the case [Drop Test] The case is good so it wouldn’t matter even if I drop it harder. It comes with a preinstalled scratch guard , so I’ll take it out.

The in hand feel is not the best nor the worst, but feels good & it’ll feel big with small hands. Let’s weigh, I think it’ll be close to 200g. It is 189g! Maybe, I thought it’s heavier because of the heft. And the weight distribution is ok, it’s not bad at all. There’s glass both on the front & back. We aren’t sure of the Gorilla Glass version & the frame is plastic. Ports & Buttons – Below, there’s a speaker grill, a USB Type C port, a microphone & sim card tray. On the left, you get volume rocker(up & down). And the buttons are solid & clicky. There’s a noise cancelling mic on top.

On the right, there’s the alert slider with the power button below. The sim card tray has a dual nano sim card slot & there’s no expandable storage. Let’s start the phone & while you’re enjoying our unboxing, do hit LIKE, SHARE & SUBSCRIBE! Display – It’s a typical OnePlus display with 6.43” Super AMOLED with 90Hz fast refresh rate & HDR10 support. There’s no exact screen-to-body ratio but the top & side bezels are thin & the chin is smaller than average. Specifications – It has MediaTek Dimensity 1200 5G SoC which is based on 6Nm fabricated technology. There are 3 variants : 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB & we have 12GB+256GB top variant. Good thing, it has UFS 3.1 storage type making good read-write speeds & has LPDDR4X RAM type. Performance – It’s the successor of the OnePlus Nord which had Qualcomm SD 765G SoC.

And if I compare it with Dimensity 1200’s AnTuTu Score, the performance has nearly doubled! The AnTuTu Score on this 12+256GB variant is around 6.87L which is a big jump. The AnTuTu Score on SD 765G was around 4L. And Dimensity 1200 clearly has a big jump. Battery – It has a 4500mAh battery with 65W Warp charging & battery capacity is big compared to 4115mAh on OnePlus Nord. The 4500mAh battery will charge 0-100% in 30 minutes. Overall, a great upgrade in battery & performance. OS UI – It’s my favourite clean OxygenOS & having 90Hz fast refresh makes overall scrolling & animations smoother. But due to the integrated code base, the camera UI is from ColorOS. Being a daily OnePlus user, it looks a little out of place. There are 2-3 things added from ColorOS. In the battery section, you’ll get a high performance mode. Looks like ColorOS is creeping into OxygenUI. The thing missing from ColorOS is the level of customization of AOD, which would’ve a welcome feature.

So I’d say it's a mixed bag of OxygenOS. For regular usage there wouldn’t be a problem. Especially, you’ll have fun using it with Dimensity 1200 & UFS 3.1. You can play games with high-very high & HDR settings. We played for a long time & it was fun & smooth. Camera – The OnePlus Nord had a quad camera setup (48MP+8MP+5MP+2MP). This one has a 50MP+8MP+2MP(triple camera). The 50MP sensor is an IMX766 Sony sensor. On the front, there’s a 32MP selfie sensor. And looking at the photos, the IMX766 sensor works well. But when you move to Ultrawide, it lacks sharpness & results in softer images. Even the selfies’ the colors & dynamic range is good. Let us know what you think in the comments.

The 50MP sensor works very well. Surprisingly, the video quality options are downgraded compared to the Nord. With rear camera, you’d be able to take [email protected] which was possible with the OnePlus Nord but with the 32MP front camera in Nord, you were able to shoot [email protected] videos. In the Nord 2 there isn’t any support for 4K, but maybe with updates it’ll be available. Sensors – All sensors are available, in-display fingerprint sensor & face unlock both work fast & are reliable. Connectivity – It’s excellent as you get 5G with 11 band support which is a benefit of Dimensity processors. You get more band support(11 bands) with dual 4G VoLTE, WiFi Calling, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 & NFC support. We tried testing carrier aggregation but there’s some issue with Dimensity 1200, so I’m not sure if it’s there. Multimedia – It's bright AMOLED screen is great & the viewing angles are also good. You get stereo speakers, one below & another in the ear piece above, which are good & loud. You’ll get a flagship multimedia experience on the Nord 2.

And there is no 3.5mm jack. Features – You get Camera2api support, so you can use GCam, there’s Widevine L1 for HD streaming.

POCO X4 GT..Redmi Note 11T Pro Plus Unboxing & First Impressions⚡World’s Cheapest D8100 Phone😯

I love when phones like this arrive at our studio! I love value for money phones which are rare especially in 2022. I’m going to unbox & give the first impressions of the Redmi Note 11T Pro+. And this is a 1700 Yuan(Rs 22-23k) phone, & if I compare it with realme GT Neo 3 & OnePlus 10R. They come at around Rs 36-37k price range & this phone with similar specs is priced at Rs 22-23k. The phone's name is big & is prohibited all over the box.

Plus it has a 120W Turbo charge. It's launched in China & might come to India as POCO X4 GT. And I'm sure it'll come. So wait for it. Box Contents – First you see the case, documentation & a SIM card tool. There's the phone & a 120W charging brick. And you also get a USB type A to C cable. Let's keep everything aside & look at the POCO X4 GT. It has a boxy design & take a look at the colour. It gives a total Chrome-Platinum feel & looks metallic. This phone looks tall as compared to other Redmi phones. There's a reason as it's a 20.5:9 aspect ratio phone while others have 20:9. The back is plastic while the front is Gorilla Glass protected.

I'm not sure of the version but it's there. The SIM card tray is a dual nano slot, so you don't get expandable storage. It has a beautiful in-hand feel. It's well built & even average hands can hold it. It feels around 195g in terms of weight. Let's see. It's an even 200.2g. Should we drop it without the case? It comes with Gorilla Glass but let's see what happens after we drop it. Nothing as it comes with a scratch guard applied. There shouldn't be any problems from the back as well. Hit SUBSCRIBE if you're enjoying the video. It's time to start the phone & see what's inside. That's a 6.6" FHD+ 144Hz talk LCD display. And it's an adaptive display & goes from 30Hz-144Hz accordingly. You can also manually change it from 60Hz or 144Hz. Even though it's not AMOLED, it gets an A+ rating by Display Mate for its IPS screen. And the quality is top notch. If you look at the display, it really looks nice & very close to AMOLED.

The display & video viewing is fun. You're getting a tall & wide display. If you're buying a phone for multimedia, then this'll be nice as it has stereo speakers (Dolby Atmos). And even the display supports Dolby Vision. Generally you get Widevine L3 on Chinese phones but here you have L1. Specifications – The base variant (6GB+128GN) comes at 1699 Yuan(Rs 22-23k). Its processor at under Rs 25k is the Dimensity 8100. On paper it's Antutu score is 787341 which is almost like a flagship score. Xiaomi claims that it goes around 8.3L. But when we tested it was around 7.8L And the score is noticeable when playing games. The performance is top notch as it has an LPDDR5 RAM & UFS3.1 storage type. Now they're flagship level specs & improves the performance.

You can play BGMI on Ultra-HD as it's locked. But it might be available when it comes to India as POCO. But you can play it on the 2nd highest graphics & it'll run smooth as well. We played Apex Legends as well as CODM & it's fun playing on it. If you're into binge watching or gaming then the 4400mAh battery seems less. But you get a 120W fast charging so that's great. Now this is the Pro+ variant with a small battery & super fast charging. Whereas if you buy the Pro variant, you'll get a 5080mAh battery with 67W fast charging. It's a better combination. Which one would you prefer? COMMENT below! But the 4400mAh battery is enough. In fact, it has a P1 chip that increases its battery. So you can use it throughout the day. Connectivity – It gets top notch connectivity with 5G & it'll come with at least 8 bands in India. It has WiFi 6 & BT 5.3 Sensors – You get all sensors, a side mounted fingerprint sensor, an IR blaster & NFC as well.

When it comes to India as POCO X4 GT, the NFC support may/may not be there. Other Features – It's IP53 certified & is dust & water resistant. Camera – I can't really say that the cameras are flagship level. It has a 64MP(primary)+8MP(UW)+2MP(Macro) triple camera setup. And the primary sensor is Samsung GW. And it clicks average photos. And we've provided all photo links in the description for you to check out. Overall, the cameras are average or slightly above average. There's a 16MP selfie sensor & the skin tones are ok as it's a Chinese variant.

The 64MP sensor supports [email protected] & the 16MP selfie supports [email protected] for videography. Camera Features – There's a 1960fps slow motion, time lapse, clone, macro videography etc. If you look at the camera module, it looks exactly like the iPhone. OS – It comes on Android 12 out of the box with MIUI 13. It's a Chinese variant & you get many pre-installed apps. But it's butter smooth & in terms of performance, I loved it. I just hope it comes at the same price range(Rs 22-23k) & it'll be highly recommended at these specs. That's all for this video, until the next one, Keep Trakin and Stay Safe! .

realme GT Neo 2 Unboxing & First Impressions ⚡ Mid-Range Performer!

[Intro] realme GT Neo 2 is here! It has an interesting naming convention because when realme GT Neo launched in China, it didn’t launch with the same name in India, it came as realme X7 Max which is priced at Rs 26-27K. And this one is slightly above that one. If you look at all things, the GT Neo 2 is an upgrade over the X7 Max. The GT Neo’s price on the box is Rs 35K but I think it’ll be around Rs 30K.

I don’t know the price while unboxing. After saying this, let’s open the box & look at the phone! If you enjoy our unboxings then do hit LIKE & SUBSCRIBE! Unboxing – “Exploring the aesthetics of technology.” We’ll see! There’s documentation, the phone, oh!- This is very interesting! Because I know, when I hold a realme phone, I can tell you without looking that it’s a realme phone! This here has a different feel! It feels like a OnePlus phone honestly! We’ll look at it soon & I hope I’m right, let’s see. There’s a gray coloured case & it’s good quality. I like it! It has a nice satin finish. Ok, there’s a 65W SuperDart charger & you get a USB Type C cable. Last but not least, a sim card tool.

Let’s keep everything aside & look at the phone! In-Hand Feel – As I said, from the back it clearly looks like a realme phone but the in-hand feel says otherwise. Generally, realme phones are light & feel good in the hand. This is good too but this is on a heftier side. I won’t say it’s on the heavier side. But yes it’s slightly heavy.

Colors – Look at this colour! OMG, this is a buoyant colour & it just stands out! If you hold the phone in your hand & talk on it, people will definitely notice for sure! This colour is Neon Green colour & there’s not a single but double black stripes! And there’s “Dare To Leap” written on it. It’s an interesting design. Some may like it, some may not but I’m ok with it. I’m just not so sure about the jazzy design. How did you find its design? Do let us know in the comments! But for me it’s a little too bright. I’d say. Build Quality – The in-hand feel is good, it’s slightly heavy. It’s weight should be around 190-200g. Let’s see. Ohoho! It’s 205g! So its weight distribution is good! And it doesn’t feel like it’s about 200g. It feels 195g. Let’s put on the case & see. It fits nice & snugly. If you don’t like the green colour so much, then you can have this gray case.

There are 3 different color variants – Neo Black, Neo Blue & Neo Green. So if you want a jazzy colour, then you can look at the Green or else go for traditional Black/Blue. [Drop Test] We always do it, it’s our proprietary thing! Nothing, it’s a good case! [Drop Test] Nothing & when you buy the phone, you’ll get a scratch guard installed on it so that’s nice. Now it’s time to start the phone! Ports & Buttons – Below there’s a speaker grill, a USB Type C, a microphone & sim card tray. On the left, there's a volume rocker. Above, there’s a noise cancelling microphone. And on the right, there's a power on/off button. Meaning there’s no side mounted fingerprint sensor, it’s in-display! Display – It’s a big display! And if you compare it with the realme X7 Max, then it’s a big display! The X7 Max had a 6.43” display, while this one has a 6.62” screen that’s E4 AMOLED. The E4 AMOLED is kind of like the latest generation AMOLED, which is 15% more power efficient.

So the display is big, bright & good! It has a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate so it automatically shifts from 30Hz to 60Hz to 90Hz to 120Hz. Depending on how you’re using the phone. The display is immersive & the bezels are thin & even the chin is small. And you get a 92.6% screen-to-body ratio which is good & it also has Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Specifications – It comes on Qualcomm SD870 SoC. It's a tried & tested flagship level processor. Although SD888 comes above it as it’s overclocked but this one is a very stable SoC.

It’s AnTuTu score is around 7.19-7.20L. And there’s one reason why it’s high scoring. It has UFS 3.1 & LPDDR5 RAM. And there are 2 variants – 8GB+128GB(base variant) & 12GB+256GB(upper variant). Battery – Generally realme phones have a 4500mAh battery but in this you get a 5000mAh battery with 65W fast charging. And realme claims that it’ll charge 0-100% in 36 minutes. One of the reasons why it’s on the heavier side is because of that big 5000mAh battery. OS UI – It comes on realme UI 2.0 which is a downer because it just launched & should’ve come with realme UI 3.0.

And they haven’t told us when it’ll be updated. So it’s based on Android 11 so the update should’ve come out of the box with realme UI 3.0. And there are many pre-installed apps. In fact, realme has its own apps that send you notifications. You get a realme community & yes you can stop these notifications but there are many of them with a lot of bloatware. Camera – I’ll tell you a thing, the GT series(the GT/GT Neo), they are not known for their cameras. And if you compare it with the X7 Max, then its camera is exactly the same – 64MP+8MP+2MP. It’s nothing much to write about & under normal conditions the photos will be good but cameras could’ve been better.

But these are performance phones so they’re focused on that! The center punchhole selfie camera has a 16MP sensor. I’m showing you some photos on the screen, so check it out! Generally the realme photos are good under normal lighting conditions. And realme GT Neo 2 isn’t any different. It has a good camera, we haven’t tried any low light or other condition photos but you tell how you feel these photos are! There’s 1 good thing, you can shoot videos on [email protected] on the rear camera so that’s definitely good! Camera App Features – There are good features, it's packed with features like Starry Mode, Street Photography mode for you, there’s AI photography mode so features are quite good! Sensors – You get all sensors & thankfully it’s got an in-display fingerprint sensor & face unlock as well that work well. Connectivity – It has very good connectivity options.

It has 8 bands 5G support, there’s WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, dual 4G VoLTE with WiFi calling & there’s also NFC support so all connectivity options are present! And it also has a 360 degree light sensor, so the ambient display/auto-brightness changes well according to the conditions. Multimedia – It’s excellent! I like it! After performance, you’ll love this phone for multimedia! Especially since it has a big display with an immersive viewing experience. Being an AMOLED screen the viewing angles are good & video viewing experience is great! And the screen is bright as well so even if you’re watching it outdoors, you’ll have fun watching it. Plus add to that, you get stereo speakers that are loud & good quality. Overall a big thumbs up for multimedia. Performance – I forgot to mention the gaming performance, it was quite good! The speakers are good & you’ll have fun gaming on it.

But the 120Hz fast refresh rate & 600Hz touch sampling rate is one of the highest. I think OnePlus 9RT is rumoured to have the same as well. It’s one of the highest touch sampling rates. And when you play games while using the gun, you can feel it. This has a vapour-cooled chamber where we played BGMI for half an hour on highest settings & it didn’t have any heating problems. Thermal performance is good as it gets just a little warm. There’s 1 feature, the game mode & you can adjust the touch sensitivity when you’re playing! And it has a GT Mode 2.0(Game Mode) where you get a full performance when set! And while playing, we noticed that the haptic feedback is very good & I really liked it. Generally, we don’t see it this good but this one has got extremely good haptic feedback. Features – There are many other features, but there’s no 3.5mm jack. Slowly the phones above Rs 20K are removing headphone jacks & I think this is why the TWS & Wireless earphones are getting popular.

But yes, there’s virtual RAM so if you buy the 8GB variant, you’ll get 5GB virtual RAM. If you buy the 12GB RAM variant, you’ll get 7GB virtual RAM to expand. So it’ll go up to 19GB! There’s no IP certification, it has Camera2Api support, Widevine L1 support, no notifications light, nor FM Radio. And yes! There's a DC dimming feature so low light eye strain will be less! So that’s what realme GT Neo 2 is all about! It's an out & out performance smartphone.

Cameras are not the highlight of this phone, it’s a decent camera & not all bad but the display is excellent! The performance is great as it’s a little more expensive than the X7 Max around/under Rs 30K. And according to that if you want a performance smartphone, then you should definitely look at realme GT Neo 2! If you have any more questions then COMMENT down below & hit LIKE if you enjoyed the video! That’s all for this video, until the next one, Keep Trakin & Stay Safe! .

moto g82 Unboxing & First Impressions ⚡ 10-bit pOLED Screen, OIS Camera @ Rs.19,999*!

We forgot the drop test!? That's wrong! Before unboxing I'd say, the 2022 phones have a good price to performance ratio. But I think the moto G82 comes close to it. It's not like 2018/19 where you had serious value for money phones. But it's somewhere quite close. Its effective price is around/less than Rs 20k. And for that price, I'd say it's a balanced phone. Unboxing – There's the phone upfront, with the case, a 33W charger with USB Type C to A. There's documentation as well as a SIM card tool. Let's keep it all aside & take the cover off. This phone has a 10-bit display that supports upto 1 Billion colours. Design – The phone has a boxy design with flat sides & a curve at the back. It's glossy but if you see there's a pattern on the back which is also a dust & fingerprint magnet. It's a typical Motorola phone that looks good & is lightweight as well.

If I guess the weight, it seems around 170-175g It's 172.3g so that's nice! It has a side mounted fingerprint sensor & speaker grills above so it seems like a stereo speaker setup. On the left, there's a SIM card tray which would be a hybrid SIM card slot(2 sims/1 sim & 1 SD card). It has a very nice in-hand feel. The phone already started as I was talking. Display – This is the successor of moto G71 & it was released in China as G71s. But while it reached India, it became moto G82. It has a 6.55" FHD+ 10-bit pOLED 120Hz screen. So the colours are definitely bright & saturated. The phone is quite slim as well since pOLED panels are slimmer compared to OLED. That's why the devices' thickness gets lower.

It's 7.99mm thin. Specifications – It's got the most popular SD 695 5G SoC. It's popular among phones around Rs 20k. It's a good SoC but there are some shortcomings which I'll talk about later. There are 2 variants – 6GB+128GB & 8GB+128GB. It has LPDDR4X RAM & uMCP storage type which is above UFS 2.1 but below UFS 2.2 A UFS 2.2 would've been better.

It has a 5000mAh battery on the 6nm processor which would last for 1-1.5 days easily. It comes with a 33W fast charging & it goes 0-100% in about an hour. Performance – It comes on Qualcomm SD 695 SoC & its Antutu score is 408331 which is very respectable. You can play BGMI on HD-High & Smooth-Ultra settings & it was fun playing. And you can also play CODM on Very High-Very High settings. From a performance perspective, it has absolutely no problem. This phone comes on Android 12 out of the box & it has a clean & optimized UI. So its power efficient as well as performing. Nowadays, all phones have virtual RAM. If you buy the 6GB phone, then you'd get 7.5GB RAM. OS Features – You get a clean Vanilla Android experience but you get customizations. There are some unique features like Power Touch for quick launch icons/shortcuts. There's a double tap to turn on Power Touch. You get ThinkShield's extra layer of security. Along with moto gestures. You also get a peak display which acts just like AOD. But being pOLED, it should've had AOD.

Also it should've had an in-display fingerprint sensor but it's side mounted & it's ok keeping the price in mind. Sensors – You get all sensors including the side mounted fingerprint & face unlock that work very well. Multimedia – You get stereo speakers along with Dolby Atmos support. The pOLED's display quality is absolutely great. You'll have fun consuming multimedia. The audio is quite loud & the overall multimedia experience is great.

Hit LIKE if you're enjoying the video! Connectivity – You get dual band WiFi, 4×4 mimo, dual 4G VoLTE, WiFi calling support BT 5.1 & NFC support as well. And you also get 13 5G bands support which is good! Cameras – It has a 50MP(OIS) camera, the 2nd is an 8MP ultrawide sensor & there's also a 2MP macro sensor. But the 2MP macro delivers very different colours so don't use it much. Rather, if it were a macro in the 2nd camera(with autofocus) that would've been great. So there's a 50MP main sensor with OIS that's click good photos. In fact, the 8MP ultrawide has a very less colour shift which is good too! All original quality photos are provided in GDrive along with its link. On the front, there's a 16MP sensor which clicks decent selfies. The colours are good with good skin tones & are slightly on the softer side. Interestingly, the phone clicks only 4MP photos by default. You also get slow motion, portrait mode, night mode, dual view mode etc. Even the camera UI is great & user friendly.

You cannot do 4K videography on this phone which is an inherent problem with SD 695 SoC. It can shoot up to [email protected] but not 4K. The OIS works well on [email protected] There's no notification light, no FM Radio. But you do get IP52 certification so it's water & dust resistant. There's Widevine L1 support, Camera2api & SAR value is within limits as well. So in short, the moto G82 is a pretty balanced phone. The display, performance is really good & the stereo speakers are good for multimedia. The battery is good & 6nm is power efficient for the 5000mAh battery.

So the main features are good along with a 50MP OIS camera. So it's good in these 4-5 departments but smaller things like storage type, 4K videography & HDR playback is lacking. So small things are missing but overall for the price it's a good smartphone. COMMENT below if you have any questions. That's all for this video, until the next one, Keep Trakin & Stay Safe! It comes with Panda glass so it won’t be much of a problem. It has plastic at the back & like I said, motorola phones are well built! .

realme GT Master Edition Unboxing & First Impressions ⚡ Snapdragon 778G, 120Hz, GT Mode & More

Introduction Alright friends let’s see what’s in this box! Sometimes it’s really difficult to open them! Ok, “Dare To Leap”, “Mastery Beyond Speed” & so many stickers! There’s “realmeow”, “mastery beyond speed”, “dare to leap GT”, etc & why’s this there? It looks like the DSLR camera’s belt, but I don’t know why they’ve included it in the box. Let’s see! What do we do with it? Huh? I don’t know what to do! There’s realme & DARE TO LEAP branding everywhere! Let’s keep this aside & check out the phone box & its contents.

Unboxing – realme GT Master Edition : Exploring the aesthetics of technology! I’ve noticed that realme is slowly getting really aggressive at marketing compared to their previous launches. Look at the amount of things they’re sending. Anyways let me tell you, you’ll only get the box & not the other stuff. Let me see the phone! Nice! I’m going to show it to you, but let’s look at the other box contents as well. Look at this nice case, I like it. You can see the ridges on it. It’s not a bad case, look at it! There’s a 65W SuperDart charger with a USB Type C cable & that’s about it. Yes! It’s definitely inspired by a suitcase. There’s realme branding & there’s a designer’s autograph. The designer’s name is Naoto Fukasawa, I’m sorry if I pronounced it wrong.

It looks good & I really like this phone to be honest. I think it’s one of the best gripping phones. It doesn’t feel like it’ll fall off from your hand after picking it up. And the weight for that matter, I think should be around 175-180g. Let’s check it out. It’s 181g! Wow! Oh, it’s 180g. Perfect, on the dot! Let’s put on the case. Putting the case on, preserves the phone’s design, as it has a somewhat similar design. So I actually like the case & it fits very nicely! Drop test? Ofcourse! [Drop Test] No, nothing. [Drop Test] Even after putting on the case, the phone doesn’t look big. The scratch guard is already applied. I can see the bubbles as well. So I’m going to remove it. Let me tell you, I love this phone’s in-hand feel! Even if it’s in your hand without the case, I don’t think there’ll be any problem with scratches. Because it’s 100% vegan leather.

So don’t use the case, this looks good enough! There are 2 colour variants – Black & White. But the ridge finish comes only in this variant. Ports & Buttons – Below, you get a speaker grill, a USB Type C, a microphone & a 3.5mm jack. On the left, you get volume rockers & a sim card tray above. Above, you get a noise cancelling microphone. On the right, you get a power on/off button. The sim card tray doesn’t have expandable storage. It’s a dual nano sim card slot. The exteriors of the phone are good & I like it & now it’s time to see the insides. If you’re enjoying the video, then hit LIKE & SUBSCRIBE, while the phone boots up. Display – Look at that screen! I love it. It’s a 6.43” sAMOLED display which is ideal size with a 120Hz fast refresh rate. And a 360Hz touch sampling rate that supports HDR10+ & its peak brightness is up to 1000 Nits. It has a 91.7% screen-to-body ratio, so the side & upper bezels are thin with an average sized chin.

Overall, the display is nice & it’s seriously a manageable phone. Specifications – It comes on Qualcomm SD778G SoC. It’s a new 6Nm processor in India. Yesterday a phone launched on the same processor & today another one has launched on this very capable processor. I’ll mention some other specifications before talking about its performance. There are 2 variants – 8+128GB(base variant) & a 8+256GB(upper variant). The storage type is UFS 3.1 & RAM type is LPDDR4X. So the read & write speeds are good! Battery – It’s a 4300mAh battery which could have been 4500mAh, but it would have increased its weight. The battery is a little less but it has a 65W fast charging which goes from 0-100% in 33 minutes. There’s dynamic RAM expansion(virtual RAM), so you can increase RAM up to 5GB more. So if you have 8GB RAM, with the additional 5GB you get total 13GB of RAM. Performance – Many people have the same question : How good is SD778G’s performance? To talk about its AnTuTu score, it’s about 5.40L which is somewhere between SD855 & SD855+ We played a lot of games like BGMI on HDR-Ultra & the gaming performance was very smooth.

I loved it! We didn’t play much but there were no frame drops & the 120Hz fast refresh rate with 360Hz touch sampling does show when playing. And there’s a GT Mode(Performance Mode) & with that on, it’s going to be fun! This is the realme GT Master Edition, it’s slightly lower than the realme GT, which we have unboxed as well! OS UI – It has realme UI 2.0, which is based on Android 11, with July’s security patch. And there are many pre-installed apps that are increasing with more new phone launches. And that’s not good! But there are 2-3 good things in this phone. There’s DC dimming, which is good, it doesn’t flicker during low brightness & that’s good for your eyes. There’s also a smooth scrolling feature & you do feel that smoothness! And friends, the internal apps send you notifications which seem pointless! You’ll get 2 years of Android updates, so Android 12 & Android 13 are coming in as well.

There’s another feature in the UI, called PC Connect. If you’re going to buy the realmeBook, then you’ll get seamless connectivity, pairing & data transfer etc. Sensors – You get all the sensors, along with an in-display fingerprint sensor & face unlock that work fast & well! Connectivity – You get 8 bands’ support in a Snapdragon SoC, which makes it somewhat future proof. We still don’t know what bands are coming to India for 5G, but there’s an 8 band support which is good! There’s DS+DS(5G on both sim cards), dual 4G VoLTE, WiFi calling, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 & NFC support as well.

Camera – On the rear, you get a triple camera setup, with a 64MP primary sensor. I’m not sure about the sensor, it must be Omnivision/Samsung. They would have mentioned it if it was Sony. There’s an 8MP ultrawide sensor & a 2MP macro sensor to capture macro shots/videos from about 4cms. There's a 32MP small punch hole selfie sensor on the left side. We haven’t used it much to talk about the photos in the first impressions, but under normal conditions photos look good. The dynamic range in realme phones is generally good. The photos are sharp, but skin tones seem slightly yellow. Like I said, we haven’t used it much, we’ll tell you all in the detailed review if we make it. But, the dynamic range is good & stands out in initial impressions. I’m showing you some sample photos, do let me know about your views in the comments. To talk about camera app features, there’s no [email protected] video recording, you get [email protected] There’s no 4K on the front camera as well, it’s just 1080p. There’s a feature for street photography, where you can see the focal length.

There are many new filters to capture photos, there’s tilt shift, slow motion, etc. Multimedia – The video viewing experience from various angles is great due to the amazing display. But I can’t say the same thing about audio, there’s a mono speaker which is loud but stereo speakers would have been better. So thumbs up for video viewing, but audio not so much. But there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack! Other features – There’s no carrier aggregation, no FM Radio, no notification light. Luckily there’s Widevine L1 support for HD streaming, there’s Camera2api support for Gcam. The SAR value is within limits. And there’s no IP certification, so it might not be dust/water resistant. And we also don’t know if there’s Gorilla Glass Protection on it. It has a plastic frame & not metal, but it looks like metal.

So finally, what do I think about this unique phone? There are 2-3 things that stand out! The performance & display are really good with full marks! The camera is not the best nor the worst, it’s slightly above average. I didn’t like 2-3 things like carrier aggregation which should’ve been there, the mono speakers that should’ve been stereo. I don’t know the price while I’m unboxing the phone, but I’m hoping it comes under Rs 25K. If it comes in that price range, then I think it’s a nice offering by realme! That’s all for this video, until the next one, Keep Trakin & Stay Safe! .

Redmi 10 Prime Unboxing & First Impressions ⚡ MediaTek Helio G88, 90Hz, 6000mAh & More

[Intro] Redmi 10 Prime is here! It’s the 1st phone from the Redmi 10 Series. No, I’m not talking about the Note Series, it’s a Redmi 10 Series phone. It's launched globally as the Redmi 10, but it’s launching here in India as Redmi 10 Prime. There’s a little difference, if you look at the global version, we’ll tell you all about it. I’ll also compare it with the Redmi 9 Prime to see how it’s an updated version. But before that, I’ll unbox it & give you my first impressions & will tell you all along the way! If you enjoy the unboxing, then do hit LIKE & SUBSCRIBE if you haven’t already! Let’s start! Unboxing – “India’s No.1 Smartphone Brand”, “Made in India”, the Redmi 10 Prime. Friends, it has a 90Hz FHD+ Adaptive Sync display.

Remember, it’s going to launch around the Rs 11K price range. First, we get the sim card tool in the box, then there’s documentation(no one reads it, I know) And you also have a nice quality case! Generally, the Redmi cases are a little flimsy. But this feels a little more sturdy! So its quality is good, we’ll put it on & show you the looks. This is the phone, alright. There’s a 22.5W charger, but the phone supports only 18W charging. And you get a Type C cable. Let’s keep everything aside, let’s look at the interesting thing, the phone! It does feel heavy & thick in the hand.

Oh my goodness, this is shiny! Yes! Alright, look at this. It’s very shiny, & it’s a plastic back. But it’s definitely a fingerprint magnet! And if you use it without a case, there’ll be scratches on it. But it’s very shiny, I’d say! Let’s put on the case. Nice! The case fits snugly. It looks nice as well! It seems huge with the case on. And we’ve to drop it! Alright! Let’s do this! [Drop Test] The case is good & comes out.

So you can use it with a case & not worry. I don’t think anything will happen even if it falls down from 8-10 ft. If it falls on a big stone right in the middle, then it might get a little damaged. But with the case, you’re safe! To talk about weight, it seems closer to 200g, for sure. It has a huge battery so- [bloopers] Oh, it showed 207 & then- It’s 194g! Wow! I thought it’d be more than 200g. Because, remember it’s got a 6000mAh battery. Wow! It’s 194g even with a 6000mAh battery. It’s probably the lightest smartphone with a 6000mAh battery. It’s interesting that it’s lighter than the Redmi 9 Prime. And it had a 5000mAh battery, while this has 6000mAh.

So well done! The in-hand feel is ok, it seems big but it fits well in the hand. Ports & Buttons – Below, there’s a microphone, USB Type C port & a speaker grill. On the right, there’s a power on/off button that doubles up as a fingerprint sensor. And there's a volume rocker above it. Above, you get an IR blaster, a microphone & a speaker grill. Yes, it has stereo speakers & a 3.5mm jack. On the left, you get a sim card tray above, which I hope has a dedicated SD card slot. Yes, there’s a triple card slot. You get a dedicated SD card slot for expansion. Time to start the phone. And look at it’s inside. If you’re enjoying our unboxing, then do hit LIKE! Display – It’s a 6.5” FHD+ display, there are very few phones in the price range with an FHD+ display.

And it also has a 90Hz adaptive refresh rate! It adapts according to what you’re doing. With movies, it’ll be on 45Hz, with gaming it’ll be on 90Hz. So it does have a fast refresh rate with a 180Hz touch sampling rate. The screen-to-body ratio is good as the side & upper bezels are of average size. The chin is slightly thick, but it looks modern. Specifications – It comes on Helio G88 SoC. It’s the 1st phone with this processor which is an upgrade to the G85. You get about a 10-15% boost in its performance. The AnTuTu scores of G85 are around 2.10-2.15L This one has a score of about 2.45L. So there’s a jump. Remember, it has an eMMC storage type. There are 2 variants in this 4GB+64GB & 6GB+128GB with LPDDR4X RAM type. It has a massive 6000mAh battery with 18W charging. I won’t say 18W is fast charging but you can say it if you want. But it’ll take about 2-2.5 hours to fully charge the battery. But the 6000mAh battery, under normal usage, will go on for 1.5-2 days! So thumbs up there! Performance – To talk about gaming performance, we played the games on HD-High settings, you can play games very well! Remember you’ll get the phone at Rs 11-11.5K.

And according to that price, the performance is quite good! The swipes & touches are really nice. OS UI – You get MIUI 12.5 out-of-the-box, which is based on Android 11. You also get July’s security patch. Interestingly, while setting up the phone, we didn’t see many ads so that was a welcome surprise! They’ve limited the ads but not completely removed them. There might be some ads but we didn’t see many. There are some pre-installed apps that you can uninstall & some Xiaomi apps as well on this phone. Overall, it’s ok & you know they're still are some issues with MIUI 12.5. This phone also has virtual memory(extended RAM). If you buy the 4GB variant, you’ll get an additional 1GB RAM. And with the 6GB variant, you’ll get 2GB of additional RAM(total 8GB). I really don’t know how useful it is. But it’s there. You get Google dialer & Google messaging app in the OS. Camera – It has a quad-camera setup & it’s a big upgrade if you compare it with Redmi 9 Prime.

The Redmi 9 Prime had a 13MP primary sensor. While the Redmi 10 Prime has a 50MP primary sensor. Xiaomi didn’t mention the camera sensor’s brand(Omnivision/Samsung/Sony) But they’ve given more attention to post-processing of pictures & that they’ve concentrated more on the outputs. The quad camera setup – 50MP(primary) + 8MP(ultrawide) + 2MP(depth) + 2MP(macro) I’m not going to talk about the 2MP+2MP. The 8MP(ultrawide) is ok. But if you compare it with the 50MP primary sensor, they aren’t all that great. They look a little soft. I’m showing you some samples on the screen, do check them out & let us know how they are. The selfie sensor is only 8MP. So, it could’ve been better.

It’s a center punch hole. But yes, the 8MP should’ve been better with 12MP/13MP. Sensors – It has all the sensors. There’s a side-mounted fingerprint sensor & face unlock and both work quite well. Connectivity – It’s not a 5G phone, the G88 SoC isn’t a 5G chipset. You get dual 4G VoLTE, WiFi calling support, Bluetooth 5.1 & dual-band WiFi support. Features – You get Camera2api support as well to use the Gcam port. There’s Widevine L1 support so streaming would be fun. The display is good, so you won’t have any problems there. You get FM Radio but there’s no notification light. The SAR value is within limits & it’s a splash-proof design! There’s no certification, but a little water or dust won’t harm the phone. Multimedia – It’s an FHD+ display with a 90Hz fast refresh rate. So the display is good with great viewing angles. Yes, it’s not as good as AMOLED but, it’s quite good. You’ll have fun watching videos. And with the stereo speakers along, it’s even better! So multimedia experience gets a big thumbs up! So friends that’s what the Redmi 10 Prime is! And 2-3 things are highlighted according to me.

Firstly, the battery is 6000mAh even after reducing the weight. And the display, if it comes at Rs 11-11.5K, I’d say it’s one of the best displays in this price range. The G88 SoC gives a good performance. So overall performance, display & the 50MP camera is really good! Apart from that, I won’t be able to say much, the 50MP sensor clicks good photos. Overall, I really like this phone! Let’s see at what price it gets launched! If it’s more than Rs 12K, then I’ll say it’s slightly overpriced. But at Rs 11-11.5K, it’ll be a very nice offering in that price range! That’s all for this video, until the next one, Keep Trakin & Stay Safe!

OnePlus Nord 2 5G Unboxing And First Impressions ⚡ Dimensity 1200, 90Hz AMOLED, 50MP Camera & More

The much awaited OnePlus Nord 2 is here. After a long time OnePlus seems to be back with a Flagship Killer. OnePlus made its name as Flagship Killer & this time we have the OnePlus Nord 2(successor of the OnePlus Nord). When it comes to performance, battery & a lot other things, it’s a huge leap. This is the 1st phone to come with OPPO-OnePlus integrated code based OS. There are many new things in the OnePlus Nord 2 & we’re going to unbox it & give its first impressions. We’ll tell you all about it & I’m really hoping it comes close to the Flagship territory. It comes with a black box with NORD written on it. Box Contents – Upfront you get the phone & there’s Nord’s signature blue colour. There’s documentation with stickers, red cable membership card, quick start guide & safety information. There’s a sim card tool, a Type C cable in signature red & a 65W Warp Charge fast charger. There’s a good quality case which we’ll put on OnePlus Nord 2 Looks – Should I call it OnePlus Nord 2 or OnePlus 9 Lite because it’s very similar to OnePlus 9.

It looks familiar with 2 big sensors on the OnePlus Nord 2. This is Haze Blue color, you get Grey Sierra & Green Wood color options too. In Hand Feel – It feels slightly hefty & is a little on the heavy side, but it’s built very well. It feels premium, fits well in the hand & it also looks close to a flagship phone. Build Quality – The case is good & bulky but it looks nice with the case [Drop Test] The case is good so it wouldn’t matter even if I drop it harder. It comes with a preinstalled scratch guard , so I’ll take it out. The in hand feel is not the best nor the worst, but feels good & it’ll feel big with small hands.

Let’s weigh, I think it’ll be close to 200g. It is 189g! Maybe, I thought it’s heavier because of the heft. And the weight distribution is ok, it’s not bad at all. There’s glass both on the front & back. We aren’t sure of the Gorilla Glass version & the frame is plastic. Ports & Buttons – Below, there’s a speaker grill, a USB Type C port, a microphone & sim card tray.

On the left, you get volume rocker(up & down). And the buttons are solid & clicky. There’s a noise cancelling mic on top. On the right, there’s the alert slider with the power button below. The sim card tray has a dual nano sim card slot & there’s no expandable storage. Let’s start the phone & while you’re enjoying our unboxing, do hit LIKE, SHARE & SUBSCRIBE! Display – It’s a typical OnePlus display with 6.43” Super AMOLED with 90Hz fast refresh rate & HDR10 support.

There’s no exact screen-to-body ratio but the top & side bezels are thin & the chin is smaller than average. Specifications – It has MediaTek Dimensity 1200 5G SoC which is based on 6Nm fabricated technology. There are 3 variants : 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB & we have 12GB+256GB top variant. Good thing, it has UFS 3.1 storage type making good read-write speeds & has LPDDR4X RAM type. Performance – It’s the successor of the OnePlus Nord which had Qualcomm SD 765G SoC. And if I compare it with Dimensity 1200’s AnTuTu Score, the performance has nearly doubled! The AnTuTu Score on this 12+256GB variant is around 6.87L which is a big jump.

The AnTuTu Score on SD 765G was around 4L. And Dimensity 1200 clearly has a big jump. Battery – It has a 4500mAh battery with 65W Warp charging & battery capacity is big compared to 4115mAh on OnePlus Nord. The 4500mAh battery will charge 0-100% in 30 minutes. Overall, a great upgrade in battery & performance. OS UI – It’s my favourite clean OxygenOS & having 90Hz fast refresh makes overall scrolling & animations smoother. But due to the integrated code base, the camera UI is from ColorOS. Being a daily OnePlus user, it looks a little out of place. There are 2-3 things added from ColorOS. In the battery section, you’ll get a high performance mode. Looks like ColorOS is creeping into OxygenUI. The thing missing from ColorOS is the level of customization of AOD, which would’ve a welcome feature. So I’d say it's a mixed bag of OxygenOS. For regular usage there wouldn’t be a problem. Especially, you’ll have fun using it with Dimensity 1200 & UFS 3.1.

You can play games with high-very high & HDR settings. We played for a long time & it was fun & smooth. Camera – The OnePlus Nord had a quad camera setup (48MP+8MP+5MP+2MP). This one has a 50MP+8MP+2MP(triple camera). The 50MP sensor is an IMX766 Sony sensor. On the front, there’s a 32MP selfie sensor. And looking at the photos, the IMX766 sensor works well. But when you move to Ultrawide, it lacks sharpness & results in softer images. Even the selfies’ the colors & dynamic range is good.

Let us know what you think in the comments. The 50MP sensor works very well. Surprisingly, the video quality options are downgraded compared to the Nord. With rear camera, you’d be able to take [email protected] which was possible with the OnePlus Nord but with the 32MP front camera in Nord, you were able to shoot [email protected] videos. In the Nord 2 there isn’t any support for 4K, but maybe with updates it’ll be available. Sensors – All sensors are available, in-display fingerprint sensor & face unlock both work fast & are reliable. Connectivity – It’s excellent as you get 5G with 11 band support which is a benefit of Dimensity processors. You get more band support(11 bands) with dual 4G VoLTE, WiFi Calling, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.2 & NFC support.

We tried testing carrier aggregation but there’s some issue with Dimensity 1200, so I’m not sure if it’s there. Multimedia – It's bright AMOLED screen is great & the viewing angles are also good. You get stereo speakers, one below & another in the ear piece above, which are good & loud. You’ll get a flagship multimedia experience on the Nord 2. And there is no 3.5mm jack. Features – You get Camera2api support, so you can use GCam, there’s Widevine L1 for HD streaming.
