The real "essential" flagship.
on 19 August 2018
Excellent screen as it is AMOLED - deep blacks, good brightness level and the options to correct the colour. Screen resolution being 1080p is not an issue at all. You will enjoy this screen.
Camera is unimaginably great - it can be compared to other ₹60k+ flagship phones and it has both front camera portrait and back camera portrait too (portraits can be taken to capture multiple people too unlike few phones that blur people beside the centre person).
Audi Quality through 3.5mm jack - It is this feature I enjoyed the most in this phone. It gives good bass output (not artificially boosting), clarity is decent, can be compared with latest flagships which offer some extra enhancements in their audio.
Network quality - I experienced the best network speeds and ping times and reduced times for the websites to start loading etc. And it supports VoLTE for both sim cards at the same time.
Software - This is the only phone out there in flagship range that gives pure Android feel other than pixel and also gives extra "essential" features which doesn't slow the phone down no matter how many days you use it without restarting the phone. And no bloatware at all.
Battery - Easily comes through out the day and even to the next day. Charging times are the fastest. This phone can be charged in full speed while using the phone and it won't get heated up.
Speaker out - Although it is not Stereo speaker, it gives decent quality and volume without distorting the clarity. A lot better than other phones out there.
Ergonomics - due to the phone's curved back shape and sharp side edges, this phone holds in hand more easy than I expected even though it has glass back.
Hardware - This phone has the fastest speed I experienced in all the android phones due to fastest processor and software optimisations in it.
Fingerprint sensor and face recognition - fastest and accurate in different conditions than other phones.
Looks of the phone - Feels 100% premium with glass back and almost full screen to body ratio.
Not so good things Or things to be noted.
Vibration motor - is bad if you are more used to vibrations for tapping screen.
Icons due to notch - Although the notch us good to experience, some essential icons like hotspot, vibration mode are hidden and you have to drap notification panel down to see them.
The Case which comes in box although protects the screen, doesn't protect the camera when you place the phone on the table facing screen up. You definitely have to buy other cases online.
Coming to the service, the service centers are exclusive like apple and the parts prices are given online.
