2020 iPhone SE

2020 iPhone SE: What could we ask more from a low-cost iPhone

Starting at 400 euros for the 64GB base model, the iPhone SE takes the best of the iPhone 11, its processor and software, and puts them in the body of an iPhone 8

Apple‘s latest phone was a surprise product from the low-cost company that brings back the classic design and challenges any other mid-range smartphone. The design is almost completely unchanged from the iPhone 6, a design language dating back to 2016 with the traditional Home button but with the performance of a recent iPhone.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″]

It is positioned as a great force in the middle segment dominated by Android smartphones, but with the best performance and service that you can get from a phone, that only Apple can offer.

The design of the iPhone we know today took a different path in 2018. In 2020 the iPhone SE screen is smaller than today’s 4.7-inch standards, but its body and construction are timeless. In the end, this smartphone gives more than the screen suggests.

The dimensions and materials are the same as the iPhone 8. Glass front and rear, aluminum on its sides, fingerprint scanner Touch ID, Lightning connector but without 3.5mm headphone port and Face ID. It weighs 148 grams, making it much lighter than its rivals.

2020 iPhone SE Hardware specifications

  • Screen: 4.7-inch Retina HD (LCD) with 326 pixels per inch
  • Processor: Apple A13 Bionic
  • RAM: 3GB
  • Storage: 64, 128 or 256GB
  • Operating System: iOS 13
  • Camera: 12-megapixel rear with optical stabilization, 7-megapixel front
  • Connectivity: Esim, LTE, Wi-Fi 6, NFC, Bluetooth 5, Lightning, and GPS
  • Water resistance: IP67 (1 meter for 30 minutes)
  • Dimensions: 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3mm
  • Weight: 148 grams

Equal performance with the iPhone 11

The 2020 iPhone SE has the iPhone 11 processor, the Apple A13 Bionic, and it works the same way. This means that even in the years to come, the iPhone SE remains competitive in this regard.

It costs only 400 euros and in this category does not recognize a rival in performance. But this performance costs us the battery. The battery lasts only 27 hours between two chargers, enough to get to bed in the evening, or an hour longer than the iPhone 8 and eight hours less than the iPhone 11. Charging the 2020 iPhone SE with the 5W adapter is a painful process. It reaches 55% after 60 minutes and takes 2 hours and 45 minutes to reach 100%.

The smartphone also has wireless charging technology but is not the best choice to charge the phone quickly. With iOS 13, the phone learns from user behavior how it charges the smartphone and sends the battery up to 80% and waits until you’re ready to pick up the smartphone, and then it charges the rest.

iOS 13

The iPhone SE comes from the box with iOS 13.4.1, the same iOS version installed on the expensive iPhone 11 models. The main difference between iOS iPhone SE and expensive phones is the control through gestures. The iPhone SE has a physical button that comes with Touch ID which performs all the gesture functions of the iPhone 11.

You’ll get Dark Mode, better privacy, and a clean menu of quick options. What sets an Apple product apart from others is definitely its support for nearly 5 years. The best of Apple’s rivals could be close to 4 years, but only for flagships and not low-cost models like the iPhone SE. Apple offers 5 years of support for each of its smartphones.

The Camera

The 2020 iPhone SE has a 12-megapixel rear camera which is identical to the iPhone 8’s camera but with the iPhone 11’s software power. The combination is really good.

In bright light it is difficult to tell the difference between a photo taken with the iPhone SE and the iPhone 11 Pro, a smartphone that costs twice as much. The images are well balanced with numerous details and accurate colors. In medium light, iPhone SE images start to lose quality. iPhone SE does not have Apple Night Mode but has Portrait Mode. Videos can be recorded at 60fps in 4K.

Overall the camera can only bitted from the Google Pixel 3A. The selfie camera is also high quality producing high detail and properly exposed photos in sufficient light.

Worth noting

  • The haptic feel is fantastic on the iPhone SE
  • There is no adapter for headphones in the box but there are Lightning EarPods headphones
  • Stereo speakers are very high quality
  • You can’t open the notifications panel by holding down the lockscreen as you would any other iPhone
  • The iPhone SE is extremely small for some wireless chargers

Price

iPhone SE is sold in three colors, black, white, and red with a price of 400 euros for the 64GB model, 450 euros for the 128GB model, and 549 euros for the 256GB model.

For comparison, the iPhone 11 costs 700 euros for the 64GB model, 749 euros for the 128GB model, and 849 euros for the 256GB model. Google Pixel 3a costs 300 euros, OnePlus 8 600 euros, and Galaxy S20 800 euros.

The Verdict

Usually when Apple is mentioned the last thing that comes to mind is value, but iPhone SE is the opposite. The 2017 iPhone 8 was revitalized in 2020 with a cost reduction and state-of-the-art processor. The combination is potent. You get a real iPhone several times at a lower cost.

The design is old but easily manageable for a smartphone of this size. Good screen, good battery, quality camera, wireless charging technology, water-resistant and high build quality. The icing on the cake is definitely the A13 processor and industry-leading software that is iOS with at least 5 years of support. In short, you can buy an iPhone SE and use it for the next 5 years with a level of quality and uncontested performance.

It’s not perfect because it lacks some features like Face ID, high battery life, and 3.5mm headphone jack. iPhone SE is the phone to buy for those people who just want a non too big and a long-lasting functional smartphone.

Pros

  • Low Price
  • 5 years new iOS versions
  • A13 Bionic
  • Wireless Charging
  • Good Camera
  • High performance
  • Easy to maintain
  • Water resistant
  • Touch ID
  • Great value 

Cons

  • Battery life
  • No 3.5mm headphone port
  • No zoom camera
  • No Face ID
  • Old design
  • Slow charging

OnePlus 8 Pro Review

OnePlus 8 Pro: The phone that Samsung feared the most

OnePlus’ latest flagship lineup is an alarm for Samsung thanks to its sleek design, 120Hz display, 5G, better cameras, and even wireless charging

Starting at €799, the OnePlus 8 Pro is more expensive than the €649 OnePlus 7 Pro and the €699 7T Pro. With the latest smartphone, OnePlus distanced itself from the motto of the “flagship killer” company by competing more directly with Samsung and Apple products without the massive price advantage.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″]

8 Pro simplifies the design of last year’s models. The “pop-up” selfie camera has been removed, replaced by a traditional “hole-punch” camera. The 6.78-inch QHD+ elite screen is the star of the show and covers almost the entire front of the device.

This year the refresh rate has been increased from 90Hz to 120Hz while staying in line with the Galaxy S20. The difference between 60Hz and 120Hz screens is something that is easily noticed when browsing lists, content, and other animations that are smoother at 120Hz.

The screen can be used on either FHD+ or QHD+ at 120Hz, unlike Samsung where 120Hz is limited to FHD+ only.

The rear of the glass is not only an aesthetic element but paves the way for wireless charging technology. The smartphone weighs 199 grams and is 74.4mm wide and 7g lighter than the previous model. It is significantly more comfortable to hold in the hands compared to the Galaxy S20 Ultra and 2.7mm longer than the 7T Pro. The OnePlus 8T Pro is the first OnePlus smartphone with IP68 certification of water resistance.

Specifications 

  • Screen: 6.78-inch 120Hz QHD AMOLED (513ppi)
  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 865
  • RAM: 8 or 12GB RAM
  • Memory: 128 or 256GB UFS 3.0
  • Operating System: Oxygen OS 10.5 based on Android 10
  • Camera: Rear 48-megapixel main, 48-megapixel and super wide, 8-megapixel telephoto, 5-megapixel color filter; 16-megapixel front
  • Connectivity: 5G, two SIM cards, Wi-Fi 6, NFC, Bluetooth 5.1 and GPS Water resistance: IP68
  • Dimensions: 165.3 x 74.4 x 8.5 mm
  • Weight: 199 grams

Speed and battery lifespan

The 8 Pro has the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor with 8 or 12GB of RAM as the OnePlus 8. This means unquestionable performance with 5G technology. The 8 Pro also has the battery life of the OnePlus 8 with 32 hours between charging cycles. Three hours used in 4G, in Wi-Fi with FHD+ 120Hz screen, 50 minutes video, 7 hours Spotify with Bluetooth headset, and about 20 photos. This is what you can do in a day with the OnePlus 8 Pro battery.

The 5G’s performance was similar to the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, while when two SIM cards are used, the smartphone is limited to only 4G. The Warp Charge 30T is so fast that it charges the 50% battery in 28 minutes and the full charge in 77 minutes. The novelty for this year is the optimized charge which saves the battery by delaying the charge to 100% at night till the moment you pick up the smartphone in your hands.

New is also wireless charging, including the Qi standard and Warp Charge 30 Wireless technology. 9 Pro can also charge other devices with Qi wireless technology. The OnePlus 8 battery withstands 800 charge cycles up to 80% capacity.

Oxygen OS 10.5

OnePlus 8 Pro comes with Android 10.5 Oxygen OS 10.5 operating system based on Android 10. This operating system is among the best if not the best based on Android with balanced functionality, aesthetics, and speed like no other.

OnePlus offers a 3-year update since debut, including two years of Android version updates and another year of security updates. Samsung offers 4 years of support for the Galaxy S series and Apple 5 years for the iPhone. So OnePlus has work to do in this regard.

The Camera

The OnePlus 8 Pro has four rear cameras where it combines: a 48-megapixel main camera with Sony’s new sensor, an ultra-wide 48-megapixel camera with last year’s Sony sensor, an 8-megapixel telephoto camera, and a camera 5-megapixel colors filters.

The 48-megapixel main camera is excellent producing some of the best photos, details and exposure from a smartphone. Auto-HDR mode accurately manages high-contrast scenes, while the light performance at least differentiates it from the 7T Pro and 8 without the need for “Night Scape” mode at all. Normally the smartphone captures 12-megapixel photos combining four pixels in a single.

The 48-megapixel ultra-wide sensor is one of the best modules also in this camera segment producing quality images in good light. Problems with this sensor start in low light environments where it often produces image noise. Night Scape helps you in such scenes.

The 8-megapixel telephoto camera is good too but suffers in low light environments. There is a hybrid zoom (optical and digital) 3x and a digital magnification only 30x. In bright light, you can capture detailed objects even with 24x magnification.

Finally, the 5-megapixel photochrom filter is more advertising than usable. There are endless software that do the best job combined with the main camera.

Observations

  • The side slider easily passes between Silent, Vibrate and Ring modes
  • Stereo speakers are excellent
  • The smartphone comes with a plastic screen protector from the box
  • Excellent call quality
  • OnePlus sandstone cases are better if you want your smartphone not to slip

The Price

The OnePlus 8 Pro starts at 799 euros for 8GB of RAM and 128GB of memory and goes to 899 euros for 12GB of RAM and 256GB of memory.

OnePlus 8 starts at 599 euros, OnePlus 7T Pro at 699 euros, Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra at 1,199 euros and Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max at 1,149 euros.

The Verdict

8 Pro shows that OnePlus is no longer the number 2 hidden under the shadow of the big ones. Rather it brings technology capable of rivaling industry leaders.

Fantastic display, stylish design, wireless charging, and water resistance. The software is best on Android, battery life is high and the experience with Android interface beats clearly Samsung and Google.

The Chinese firm has managed to address the weak point, the camera, and maintain the strong point of the software, the speed and longevity of the battery. It is no longer the cheapest smartphone, but the cheapest and best option among the best.

Pros

  • Fantastic screen
  • Battery life
  • Quality camera
  • Slider of notifications
  • 5G
  • Fast fingerprint scanner
  • High performance
  • Fast wireless and wired charging
  • Excellent software
  • Water-resistant
  • Two SIM cards

Cons

  • No 3.5mm headphone port
  • Only three years of software updates
  • 5G disabled when two SIM cards are used
  • Expensive

AOMEI Backupper

[AOMEI Backupper] Use Backup Software to Retain Your Precious Memories

-Do you back up your PC data regularly?

-Of course I am not!

This conversation often happens in our lives. Many of our friends even ourselves rarely back up computer data regularly. What should we do if something unexpected happens? For example, a PC is suddenly damaged, or data is lost due to a virus intrusion or incorrect operation. So we should keep in mind “Backup Data is Important”!

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″ tdc_css=””]

At this point, you might say “Backup is time-consuming, and I can’t remember the steps of backup”. Yes, I don’t like complicated things either, so I rarely do manual backups. But recently, for the first time in several years, I used a backup software to replace my rare manual backup for doing a backup. The tool called AOMEI Backupper – a best backup software to protect our valuable data forever. The biggest feature of it is that it is easy-to-use and it can be easily used to back up for PC beginners. Don’t worry about paying, because there is a free version of AOMEI Backupper. Although there are some restrictions on functions of free version, free regular backups and even disk/partition clone and other operations can be achieved. Next, I will introduce AOMEI Backupper in detail based on my personal feelings after using it. I hope this article can help those who want to easily back up their computers, or want to make a backup but do not understand the backup process, or just want to back up specific files and folders.

What Is Backup?

First, what is backup? Some people get it wrong sometimes, so let me mention it briefly. The backup is that the same data exists in two separate locations, and we can restore the data even if the data in one location is lost.

Do You Need Backup Software?

If you have a lot of important data on your computer, if you are not familiar with PC, or if you are not used to regular backups, we recommend that you try backup software. When you actually use it, you will feel that it is so easy to do regular backups with software, and you no longer have to worry about any data loss.

About AOMEI Backupper

AOMEI Backupper is the backup software of AOMEI Technology. AOMEI Technology is a software development company specializing in backup and disk management. Its products are recognized by users around the world. AOMEI Backupper Standard is an all-in-one backup freeware that embeds backup, sync, restore and clone functions at a very affordable price: FREE. The paid version is AOMEI Backupper Professional, but the backup can be done by using the free version. For normal use, I think the standard version is completely sufficient.

The AOMEI Backupper Standard allows the following backups:

  • System backup: All contents of the system partition, such as Windows operating system, applications, etc.
  • File backup: specific data files, such as documents, photos, videos
  • Disk backup: everything in HDD (create disk image)
  • Partition backup: specify a partition

How to Use AOMEI Backupper Standard to Backup Windows?

I actually backed up the entire operating system using AOMEI Backupper, so I will show you the whole process.

Step 1. Download and open AOMEI Backupper Standard from the official page. The standard version is free. Select “Backup” option from the left menu and click “System Backup”.

Step 2. AOMEI Backupper Standard automatically selects the system drive and boot drive as the source partition. Then you choose the backup destination (storage destination) path to save the system image file.

Step 3. Finally click “Start Backup” button, and then all you have to do is just wait for the backup to complete.

It didn’t end after the first backup. However, once a backup has been made, it becomes easier to back up from the second time. You can also use the schedule management function to make backups automatically, and can also choose the backup frequency and time as you want.

You can even set up automatic backups when the PC starts, right before the power is turned off, or when a USB memory is inserted.

You can also choose from three backup methods:

  • Full backup: Make a new full backup as above. The advantage is security, but the disadvantage is that it takes time and space.
  • Incremental backup: Back up all changes or additions since the last backup.
  • Differential backup: Save only the parts that have changed since the file was last saved.

Conclusion

The above is a review of AOMEI Backupper and how to use it for a full OS backup. In addition to backing up your system, you can back up any file. If you think “I don’t know what to do” or “troubleshooting”, we recommend that you try a backup with this free software. You will find that the backup process is simplified and easy to perform. If you are looking for backup software, consider the easy and free AOMEI Backupper Standard.

OnePlus 7T

OnePlus 7T: If you are looking for excellence but without spending too much this is the phone to buy

OnePlus is undoubtedly the king of the highest-value smartphones for their cost, and the company is already back with another hit: the OnePlus 7T.

This phone takes many of the features that users have loved so much in the OnePlus 7 Pro and puts it at an affordable device even more powerful than the phone itself. But deepening what the OnePlus 7T is all about is crucial to clearing the confusing line of OnePlus products.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″]

Technically the OnePlus 7T is the successor to the OnePlus 7 and not the OnePlus 7 Pro.

OnePlus 7T Design and Display

OnePlus 7T shares multiple design notes with the previous generation of OnePlus but with some major changes. The shape is tall. It resembles an extended version of OnePlus with the 6.55-inch screen compared to the 6.41-inch OnePlus 7.

The screen has a smaller “notch” than the OnePlus 7. The biggest difference with the previous generation is the camera’s circular panel on the back of the phone. The screen is gorgeous but not without flaws. It’s only 1080p, which means it has lower resolution than the OnePlus 7 Pro. We would have liked to see the 1440p screen.

However, like the OnePlus 7 Pro, the OnePlus 7T has a 90Hz frequency display providing a smoother graphics experience. Animations and movements are smoother than on 60Hz screens. The screen also has an extremely high brightness of up to 1,000 nits. And foremost is the AMOLED display with solid, clear colors and deep levels of black.

Specs:

  • 6.55-inch 1080p AMOLED (90Hz) Display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ processor
  • 8GB of RAM 128 and 256GB of memory
  • Three 48 + 12 + 16-megapixel rear cameras
  • 16-megapixel front camera
  • Battery 3,800 mAh

OnePlus 7T Performance

Perhaps more important than the look of the phone is performance. OnePlus 7T has the upgraded version of the Snapdragon 855 flagship processor used on other Android phones such as Galaxy S10, Snapdragon 855+.

This processor is accompanied by 8GB of RAM. Thanks to the 90Hz display you’ll get an even more brilliant experience. Games like the Asphalt 9, which are known for their high graphics intensity, make this phone shine and work without a hitch.

Like other OnePlus phones, the OnePlus 7T also has a gaming mode that blocks notifications and keeps the screen bright and fast.

Battery life can go all day but no more because of the hollow processor and 90Hz display. But thanks to 30W fast charging, the phone is charged at 70% for 30 minutes. However, the OnePlus 7 has no wireless charging.

Software and Camera

OnePlus 7T is the first OnePlus phone to debut with Android 10. Overall Oxygen OS, the customized version of Android for OnePlus phones, has all the latest Android features.

It’s clean and easy to use and the interface is clean of foreign applications. With the OnePlus 7T the camera quality has reached another level. It’s not the level of the Google Pixel 3 or iPhone 11 Pro, but thanks to its three-lens setup, it easily captures crisp, natural photos. It can even capture quality photos in low light conditions thanks to the “Night Scape” mode.

But if you want the best camera experience, go for the Google Pixel 4 or iPhone 11 Pro.

Finally 

OnePlus 7T is a great phone. Performs at a high level, has a higher quality camera and technology for fast battery charging. The 90Hz display further enhances the experience, especially for gamers.

But it will lack some high-end features like wireless charging and high-resolution display. But is OnePlus the best option? In fact, the OnePlus 7 Pro is better in many ways because it has a higher resolution screen, better camera and no frame display. If you can afford the cost of the OnePlus 7 Pro you’d better pay $70 more.

OnePlus 7T Pros:

  • Slim Design
  • 90Hz Screen
  • High Performance
  • Budged phone
  • Quality camera

OnePlus 7T Cons: 

  • No wireless charging
  • Battery life below expectations
  • 1080p Screen

Asus ROG Phone: Is it the best gaming phone?

Asus ROG Phone: Is it the best gaming phone?

Your smartphones are not more left in a shell of calling, cameras and music player now. You can go for extraordinary features too by paying some extra grand or bucks for that. Just like that, gaming smartphones are the ones who have caught the attention of smartphone users last year. Along with the better camera, sleek looks and high-end features, these devices are particularly designed for gamers. So, these devices offer high-end processor pair with 6-8 gigs of RAM and a powerful GPU too.

[td_block_ad_box spot_id=”custom_ad_2″ tdc_css=””]

Asus just like that has launched its ROG Phone which is specifically inclined towards gaming experience. Not only Asus, but many companies’ products like Razor Phone, Xiaomi Black Shark, and Nubia Red Magic have already entered in this niche of smartphones.

Asus ROG Phone has now entered the gaming niche of smartphone devices with features like 90Hz display, design tweaks at the price tag of Rs. 69,999. But at this high range, do you really need this device? You can check out the availability with Amazon Coupons to get best rates.

Design

Asus ROG Phone packs a 6-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The screen is full-HD AMOLED with Gorilla Glass ) protection for scratch resistance. Above the screen, it bears a selfie cam with some sensors and a notification light. Also, it gets a stereo firing speakers which are very powerful.

Particularly designed for games, Asus ROG comes from the company’s gaming series laptops. Asus sets the phones with a dual cam setup, an LED Flash, and a polygon-shaped fingerprint sensor. It sounds weirder but Asus ROG gets an irregular design. Why would a company use that?

Also, the fingerprint sensor is not in the perfect position but when you get used to it, it will seem fine. Like Razor device, this device also gets a ROG logo with RGB lighting. The rear gets a Gorilla Glass 5 back for smudge proofing and scratch resistance. Coming to the overall design, the device gets a unique look which some users might love.

ROG Phone also packs three ultrasonic sensors on its frame known as “AirTriggers”. While two of them are on the right side, the other one is on the lower left. The right ones are touch-sensitive buttons which can be used while gaming in landscape mode. On the other hand, the left one can be triggered when you are playing in portrait mode.

Performance and Software

Under the hood sits a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with clocking at 2.96GHz. The device bears carbon pads, cooling chamber and heat spreaders for heat dissipation which will cool and help the device in heavy loads.

The chipset is paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB onboard non-expandable storage. Though a 512GB version is also available, Asus has still launched the 128GB one in India.

The device supports HDR and has 90Hz refresh rate to produce a great color gamut. Also, you can control the refresh rate between 60Hz to 90Hz- a selectable tweaking of display output.

OnePlus 6, a rival of the iPhone X but with half the price

OnePlus 6, a rival of the iPhone X but with half the price

The whole front of it is the screen, practically all with glass. There is a relatively small side at the bottom of the screen where it joins the body, but the frames are narrow around the sides and at the top.

OnePlus has embraced what appears to be the smartphone trend for 2018, the “notch” – the upper part of the screen trimmed on the screen to make room for the sensors, the loudspeaker and a 16-megapixel camera. The AMOLED display of 6.28 is large, bright, with great viewing angles.

Also new to OnePlus 6 is a rear of the glass, available in both options, mats and mirrors, which makes the phone feel really entertaining in hand. However, there are some weaknesses in the back, where we mention that it is not slippery in the hand and the screen surface gathers fingerprints like a magnet.

Scratches are also inevitable and will be less powerful if you crash it. Fortunately, OnePlus is one of the small non-Apple manufacturers that offers very good products.

Zero delay

When OnePlus claims there is no delay of any kind, this is no joke. The entire system is extremely fast in all directions, from switching applications to camera launch.

The battery life is good but not good enough. OnePlus 6 lasted 29 hours on the battery, starting at 7 on the first day and extending until noon on the second day. Even during these hours there was a maximum use of smartphone services.

Charging is really fast through the Dash charger, reaching 30% from 0 to 17 minutes, 70% to 38 minutes, and a full charge in just under 90 minutes.

OxygenOS 5.1

OnePlus puts a customized Android version on its phones called OxygenOS, this time based on Android 8.1 Oreo, which is the latest available with Android P coming in the summer.

OxygenOS is a slightly refined version of the so-called “stock” Android with add-ons and small tools, such as the ability to duplicate certain messaging applications including WhatsApp. OxygenOS 5.1 in OnePlus 6 is smoother and more refined, comparing it to Google’s Pixel 2 speed.

Missing the Google Feed panel, instead of what OnePlus has called widget containing widgets. Personalization options include the ability to exchange traditional Android navigation buttons, gesture back buttons similar to those used on the iPhone X, and a choice to hide or hide it from the status bar.

Camera

OnePlus has tried hard to compete with Apple, Google, Samsung and now Huawei when it comes to the camera. OnePlus 6 has a 16 + 20 megapixel camera system on the back.

Use both color cameras to enhance detail and low light performance, as well as provide a pretty good portrait mode. The camera has improved a lot, producing some really enjoyable, highly detailed and colorful images in good lighting.

Low light performance is also significantly better than last year’s phone and the application is simple and easy to use. But OnePlus 6 is not compared to Huawei P20 Pro or Google Pixel 2. It can not have any real noise features and lack optical zoom, but most will be very happy with the images.

The front camera is very good, saving a large amount of detail, even in very poor fluorescence.

Optional beauty mode also manages soft skin without wiping the beard, which is better than most. OnePlus 6 lacks the slider-motion 960fps that 2018 competitors have, but will record a very good 720p at 480fps as long as you want.

Price

OnePlus 6 is available in three colors and three variants in storage space. It starts at 469 pounds with a black finish, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.

The 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage space costs 519 pounds in white, glossy or black, while an 8GB of RAM, 256GB of black color costs 569 pounds.

If compared to the Huawei P20 Pro 6.1-inch, it costs 799 pounds with 128GB of space, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro 6in with 128GB costs 699 pounds, the Samsung Galaxy S9 + 6.2in ​​costs 869 pounds with 128GB of space, the Google Pixel 2 XL 6in with The 64GB costs 799 pounds, the Honor 10 6in with 128GB costs 450 pounds and the iPhone 5.8in with 64GB costs 999 pounds.

Conclusion

OnePlus 6 is a premium device that provides the required services in exchange for a price under 500 pounds. Starting at 469 pounds, it’s certainly not a cheap smartphone, but it’s less than half the cost of the Apple iPhone X and much cheaper than Samsung.

Offering a high performance on the inside, it makes it one of the best smartphone experiences available at that offered price. On the contrary, OnePlus 6 shows that no matter what merchants say, you do not have to pay 700 pounds up to 1,000 euros for a really great phone.
