Oppo Reno5 Brief Review – The Oppo Reno was first introduced in 2019, this year is already entering the third year of the Oppo Reno’s age and various innovations, technologies and device variations have been introduced. In 2021, Oppo Malaysia brings the Oppo Reno5 series to the local market with specifications more or less the same as the variation in China. Unlike the Oppo Reno4 where models sold in Malaysia use a chip that has lower power than the Chinese model.
We’ve been using the Oppo Reno5 for a few weeks. Oppo is once again focusing on camera capabilities. Only this time the greatness of the software -based camera is more emphasized such as video recording capability with night mode, Color OS 11 which is smarter and closer to the original Android and of course focuses on design. Is this your dream device for 2021? Can a software -powered camera be able to turn the Oppo Reno5 into a camera device? This is our review.

Among the uniqueness with this Oppo Reno5 is, it uses an electrochromic back panel – where the color of the back panel can change. But that’s limited to the Pro+ variation only. Even so, the use of this all -new slope color also brings a very beautiful, attractive color and uses a matte finish that is pleasant to the touch. Although it feels like slippery, but it still gives a good grip.
The camera module uses a rectangular design with curved corners. Each lens is also quite large as the lens from the iPhone 12, but arranged lengthwise. On the right side there is a power button that can also be set as a Google Assistant call button and on the left series there is a volume button. Below are the speaker lattice, audio jack port, and USB-C port.
This Oppo android feels very comfortable in the hand. It’s thin, light and fun to rub on the back panel. Flat screen design with 2.5D curved finish, perforated screen – everything is pretty and neat. This design will also likely be used on one of the OnePlus 9 models. A bit disappointing on this device is, it still has a thick chin.
Realme X7 Pro Performance And Benchmark Scores – First play on this device gives a different experience. For example, when playing first like PUBG Mobile it can play at High setting only. The playing experience is quite satisfying, but after about one session – it starts to heat up. But not so hot, because the device can still be held and operated well. But after playing Genshin Impact, it was limited to 60FPS only. Then throughout the play period it was a bit snagged and the animation transitions were a bit weird and as if it wasn’t the first time there were graphics bugs. Just 10-15 minutes of play, the device starts to heat up until it is uncomfortable to hold.
Not only that, in the Don’t Kill My App test to see memory management. This realme android is a bit weak. It is not capable of handling many applications simultaneously. The score is only 58%. It could be that 8GB of RAM is not enough for this chip and it could also be that the use of UFS 2.1 internal storage is not a wise choice.
The benchmark score was 509498 from AnTuTu, while Geekbench 5 earned 766 for single-core and 2758 for multi-core. The score reaching 500K is the equivalent of the Snapdragon 865, but still not great enough as most are around 550k.

Realme UI still has a lot of fat apps built -in. This is one of the reasons why the optimization of the operating system is unsatisfactory and causes problems. Even so functions like dark theme mode, Realme Share, Focus Mode, Customizable Icon, Smart Driving and many more are ready to help users to add a fun user experience.
Realme UI is pretty smooth if used for casual, but when it starts playing first, it becomes problematic. The system crashes frequently such as time lag problems, the screen cannot be touched; there is a time lag between scanning a fingerprint and going to the main screen and more. This problem does not occur during the first play only. In fact, when the device is not touched for about 30 minutes to 1 hour – it also suffers from serious time delay problems.
Turning to the Realme X7 Pro design quality, again it is similar to the Oppo Reno. Only the Oppo wins, because of the beautiful and unique back panel. Realme only uses a regular glossy slope color with a smooth finish. Most annoying is the writing “Dare To Leap” filling the back panel. The shape of the camera module is similar to the Oppo, but the Oppo looks more premium and there is a class because of the design of each lens which is more striking.
On the side of the device there is only a power button and on the other side one is the volume up button. No 3.5mm audio jack port is offered, the speakers are stereo and have a 4500mAh battery capacity with 65W SuperDart Charge fast charging support.

The screen on this device is really great. For the first time personally I was fond of the refresh rate screen on a Realme android. The 120Hz setting supported on this device is like using a more expensive device. It is very smooth, fast and very satisfying. It’s like the first time trying out a device with a refresh rate screen; like the first time I tried the 90Hz screen on the OnePlus 7 Pro. Surprising!
But alas, the color of this screen is not very bright and the screen of this device is not very bright. The screen color of this device is not attractive enough, it is as if the color is described only using a filter. It is too sharp and does not preserve the details well. Maybe this is the sacrifice that has to be faced for a smooth screen? However, watching videos is not a problem. Only on apps and launchers there is this problem. Netflix, YouTube and even Disney+ are just beautiful. It corresponds to AMOLED screen devices priced below RM2000.
Oppo Reno5 Pro Camera Quality – The Oppo Reno5 Pro uses a main quad-camera system with a 64-Megapixel configuration for the main sensor. Next, followed by 8-Megapixel for Ultra-Wide as well as two more 2-Megapixel lenses for macro and mono sensors. Then, selfies can be take through the 32-Megapixel front camera. The camera interface is also easy to understand and there is absolutely no problem to access every available camera mode.
The Oppo Reno5 Pro has the ability to record video with the highest settings up to 4K (30fps). Not only that, but there are various key functions build into the camera that can be find- aim at improving the performance.
Touching on performance, the camera is able to provide good image results. Each resulting shot looks good with detail detail on the subject satisfactorily and bright colors. Plus when the AI Scene Enchancement function is activate, the shots look brighter and prettier – with more prominent colors.

Next, the wide-angle results are also not disappointing. It is seen to be able to provide good detail – although the effect of taste distortion may already be common. Finally, the results for macro lenses are however unsatisfactory. The resulting image is seen to lack good detail detail. It is, however, already to be expect for picture results from a 2-Megapixel sensor.
Ultra Night Selfie Mode, Ultra Dark Mode & Night Flare Portrait
These three functions are suitable for night shooting results. It will make the picture brighter even when taken in dim conditions. Then, Night Flare Portrait is able to make the subject in the picture stand out with the bokeh effect on the back.
So, it can be said that this Oppo android is adequate for daily tasks as well as the first. But, what is the main problem here is – the issue of easy heat on the back panel. Even more frustrating, this hot issue often makes it uncomfortable to hold the device when it happens. Arguably around 10 – 15 minutes of game hot problems on the device can already be feel.
Oppo Reno5 Pro Design Quality – Touching on the question of design, one of the uniqueness of this device lies in the type of finish used. The use of all -new slope colors makes it unique and stylish. Especially for the Oppo Reno5 Pro model in a Galactic Silver color finish – where the color of the back panel changes according to the user’s point of view. However, the review model we received was Starry Black. The black hue is simple but looks elegant. In our opinion, what Oppo presents on this model is quite different than before.
However, we have to admit here this back panel feels a bit slippery and is quite easy to trap fingerprint dirt. At the same time, it is also vulnerable to the risk of fine scratches. Therefore, you are advised to use the plastic frame provided free of charge by Oppo in the purchase box.

Next, the back panel also houses a rectangular camera module – along with three different camera humps for each lens. Also visible, there is another additional lens that is placed side by side and looks flat. The front panel has not received any changes – still like the previous Oppo Reno5.
“Design for Reno” – which gives an idea of the decorative concept used is exclusive to devices under the Reno series only. Finally, the SIM tray compartment is placed at the bottom along with the USB-C connection port and speakers. Notice or not, the drawback here is the absence of a 3.5mm audio jack.
Overall, what we can say is the display quality is good. The screen is seen to have satisfactory brightness along with sharp colors. Then, the details on each content are also good with quality at a satisfactory level. In a simple sense, every piece of content featured looks beautiful. Plus, no matter where you are – whether outdoors or indoors, the display on this smart android still remains clearly visible.
Samsung Galaxy A02s Achievements – For internal specifications, the samsung galaxy a02s uses the same processor as the previous samsung galaxy a11-via a snapdragon 450 chip generation. It brings an eight-core chip, via an Octa-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A53 with the use of an adreno 506 GPU. memory is larger than the device – namely 4GB of ram and 64GB of internal storage (eMMC 5.1). This space can also be expanded via a dedicated microSD slot with a maximum limit of 1TB.
If we want to talk about performance, Samsung Galaxy A02s is able to perform the basic functions of a smartphone well. Use of the most basic activities – for example surfing the web, social media and so on. This smart Samsung android is capable of operating satisfactorily. It’s just that there are times when the problem of time lag still occurs for some situations. For example, when we are scrolling, click any application or type on the keyboard.
Also Read: Samsung Galaxy A02s Official Release
When this happens, it results in the process of opening the application feeling a bit slow. Later, the scrolling process was also somewhat disrupt and not very smooth. Typically, it often happens when there are some heavy applications in the background. However, such a situation seems to be already to be expected for a device in such a class.
Touching on the first performance; intensive games like PUBG; or Call Of Duty can still be play. However, the condition for getting a good gaming experience is only on the basic graphics settings. If you expect something more, we can only say the performance was a bit disappointing. What makes matters worse is that the game is a bit snagged and not smooth for some situations. As for the Asphalt 9 game, we didn’t try it – because we found it not to be found in the Google Play Store.
Samsung Galaxy A02s Official Release – Are you looking for a device on a budget below RM600? Samsung has recently opened the curtain on 2021 with the offering of two devices-one of which is the Samsung Galaxy A02s. This smart device comes with entry -class specifications and offering at an affordable price is one of the efforts that Samsung is trying to pay attention to.
Still, it doesn’t really emphasize good specs when compared to devices sold at equivalent prices. Even so, every smart device certainly has its own strength value. The same goes for the Samsung Galaxy A02s. So, where does the strength lie in this smart device? Continue reading this article:
Also Read: Wiko Power U20 Design Quality
We start with the design first. The Samsung Galaxy A02s brings a design that is quite synonymous with some of the other models under the galaxy A series – especially for the design on the back panel. As can be seen, this smart android uses a construction entirely of polycarbonate with a striped texture finish with a prism-like design.
Holding this device for the first time – its build is arguably quite thick and heavy. It may be due to its large battery capacity. Even so, it is still comfortable to hold. Coupled with such a textured back panel – indirectly able to provide a pretty good grip and not easily escape from the user’s grip.
The Samsung Galaxy A02s, however, does not have fingerprint scanner support – either physically or built into the screen. Instead, you are only given the option of a face scan function and a few other common security settings. For example, swipe settings, patterns, pins or passwords.
As far as we use, this face scan function is seen to give a good and responsive response. Then, it is able to unlock this smart device quickly. Arguably, this function is easier for users to compare with other common security settings.
Wiko Power U20 Design Quality – It has become a habit, every time a review article will start with a physical design first. The Wiko Power U20 carries a plastic -based rear construction or its scientific name polycarbonate. Even so, it still looks pretty good in a shimmery finish. The back panel is also seen giving a bit of light reflection that is interesting to look at. Only, there is no change in terms of color appearance that results through it.
For information, the review unit received is the Wiko Power U20 in Slate Gray color. For other options, there is also the Wiko Power U20 in a cheerful color shade of Navy Blue which is able to add an exclusive touch to a casual design. If you want something different, the Wiko Power U20 in Mint color feels more appropriate because its appearance looks more prominent with the writing “Let’s Power-Up” which is quite large. Each of the color finishes provide is suitable only to be style by women or men. In fact, it is also easily adapt to match various types of clothing. In addition, it is also able to meet the tastes of the wearer who wants the appearance to look relaxed.

Undoubtedly, the Wiko Power U20 has an important element in terms of comfort. Why? This is due to its good and strong body shape – at the same time making it comfortable to hold. In addition, the design is ergonomic and not too heavy or thick – also helps in adding more comfort and a better grip experience. Overall, it is a good smart android, neat and has a satisfactory build quality. Only, the back panel feels a little slippery and so easily traps fingerprint dirt. However, this problem can be overcome with the free silicone frame provide in the purchase box.
What I was disappointed with the Vivo V21 was that, despite being equipped with OIS on the front and rear cameras, it didn’t seem to help. The image still looks soft just like the camera of a device that only uses EIS. Hopefully in the next software update it will be fixed. Throughout use a lot feels as if Vivo relies on software alone. Indirectly, low -light mode images are not very pretty.
Ultra wide angle images are no problem at all on this device. It is capable of taking pictures with a clear point of view. But the color is not so flashy and looks like an edit only. But if there is enough light, the picture result is adequate.

The most frustrating thing on this fancy android is, it only uses mono speakers. It’s mono, there’s no 3.5mm audio jack. With mono speakers, the audio is unbalanced and will feel a little weird when watching videos, listening to music or playing the first.
But luckily, the speakers are loud enough and loud enough just with a flat audio profile. If you listen to pop songs, light songs or videos that focus a lot on vocals-the audio of this device is adequate. But it would be nice to have a pair of stereo speakers. Maybe this will only be offered on next year’s Vivo V22.
The 4000 mAh battery has no problem supplying power all day. At its lightest use it easily lasts for two days with another remaining balance of around 5%. In heavy use, SOT alone for 5 hours can be enjoyed. The heavy use here is a lot of using social media apps, streaming video, using cameras and running firsts. This medium -large battery takes around 60 minutes to fully charge via the 33W charger provided with each purchase.
Vivo V21 Software Quality – Like I said earlier, Vivo is getting smarter in software development. I started noticing this since the Vivo X50 again. But started using it fully on the Vivo X60 Pro a few months ago. As a user who loves native Android, Funtouch OS tries to follow in Oppo’s footsteps through Color OS. Many heavy theme elements were removed and replaced with lighter themes. Then many native Android elements are included to be more suitable for use by global users.
Even so, Vivo still wants to focus on the results of their efforts, namely their own applications that are already built-in.
If MIUI 12 and Color OS 11, Google’s apps are used for phone calls and messaging, Vivo still uses their own apps. Users are still given the option to download the app from the Play Store and replace the Vivo standalone app with an app of their own choice.
Additional interesting features on the existing Funtouch OS such as Jovi, EasyShare, gesture control, and more are still retained. On the device settings section, it’s still annoying because it’s not organized. Of all the Android third -party launchers, Funtouch OS is among the most fibrous in my opinion. Other brands are more structured and can be said to provide a more or less similar experience.

The Data Transfer Performance
This device has no serious problems in telephone, regardless of the use of phone calls or mobile data. Unlike many Poco and Redmi devices with more or less the same chip but having WiFi and data issues. The audio quality of a voice call is obvious, but I’m not particularly fond of being in a long call session. Because the design is too thin and such a flat is not very comfortable.
On GPS performance, however, the time taken to lock the location is a little slower than usual. It also varies by application. On Google Maps it works fine. On the Waze app the time taken becomes longer. Then when wanting to share location via WhatsApp for example, it takes longer than the two GPS applications earlier. This is disappointing as the Vivo V21 supports all major geolocation systems namely GPS, BeiDou, GLONASS and Galileo. Other middle-class devices we’ve reviewed are able to show the exact location in a shorter and more consistent time.
Vivo V21 Brief Review – Like Oppo, Vivo also focuses on lifestyle in accordance with the meaning of Vivo itself is “life” in Latin. Vivo puts more emphasis on design, selfie capabilities and tries to offer a wide selection of devices that have their own style. Among the highlights in the Vivo product line is the V series. It is a mid -range device that offers professional -level photographic capabilities. Among the latest in the Malaysian market is the Vivo V21.
We chose this device as the camera phone of choice for Hari Raya because of the camera capabilities it offers. After using it for a few weeks, we can feel that Vivo is smart in offering attractive products that are affordable but still look premium. In this review article where we formulate whether the Vivo V21 is worth it or not to own.

The device uses a 6.44-inch AMOLED screen with FHD+resolution. It also supports 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10+display. In addition, Vivo also uses a Dimensity 800U 5G chip with a combination of 8GB RAM memory and 128GB UFS 2.2 internal storage. The camera is 64+8+2 Megapixels with a 44 Megapixel selfie camera. Uniquely both the rear and front cameras are equipped with an OIS stabilization system with two LED flashes also placed on the front.
The battery is 4000mAh with 33W wired fast charging support. There are no additional wireless or reverse charging features on the V21. A fingerprint scanner is an optical type located at the bottom of the screen. The Vivo V21 runs the Funtouch OS 11 operating system based on Android 11.
The design of this device is more to the identity of the X Vivo series that started since the X50. It’s no exaggeration to say the V21 is very similar to the Vivo X60 we’ve reviewed before. The slim design, the build that feels good in the hand; the captivating colors and the overall bit of modernity are among the advantages of this device. But alas on the screen, the Vivo still uses a small notch that has already begun to be abandoned by many manufacturers.
Oppo A74 5G Telephone and GPS – There is 5G network support but we are not able to test this because it has not been launched. Phone calls using the LTE network are satisfactory, clear and without any problems. If your telco supports VoLTE, the A74 5G supports it and higher quality voice calls can be made. No difficult issues getting a good LTE signal were experienced during the review period.
GPS performance is also fast. The Waze and Maps applications when used can track the location of a vehicle in less than two seconds. While driving there is no issue of sudden loss of signal or wrong location being shown in the app. As a phone and navigation device, the A74 5G works brilliantly.

Continuing the theme that the A74 5G is a Nord N10 5G with some specification changes, the camera capabilities between the two devices are also. Picture performance in good lighting situations is very satisfactory with sharp images as well as acceptable color reproduction on a middle class android. The warm picture is a little yellowish compared to the real situation but still looks beautiful.
Zooming up to 2X gives a picture that is still satisfactory in quality but when to a maximum zoom of 6X it looks a little soft but the quality is still acceptable. Without OIS support on all lenses, images produced using the zoom mode are less sharp. This is a standard issue on all devices with only EIS systems on the market. EIS is not a good substitute for OIS.
Night mode is another satisfying aspect. In the various experiments performed, the resulting images had significant noise issues. Unlike on the pinnacle devices we often review, the camera aperture is different according to the lighting situation. On the Oppo A74 5G the aperture is consistent around 2 seconds when night mode is used.
So we found the picture not very clear and sharp again due to the lack of OIS on the camera system. Holding the device for two seconds will cause the hand to move; and the result will be a less satisfactory image.
The SIM slot display on Samsung Galaxy 32 LTE and 5G devices is different. Wherever, the Samsung Galaxy 32 LTE supports up to three different card slots to facilitate the use of microSD and dual-SIM cards simultaneously. In contrast to the Samsung Galaxy 32 5G which is designed based on a hybrid via Nano-SIM (SIM1) + Nano-SIM/microSD (SIM2) slots.
Moving on to the front panel, well here are some notable differences that can be seen. Roughly speaking, both use a front panel with a small notched design. In fact, such a design can be considered a bit outdated as most of Samsung’s latest smart android are ready to support perforated displays. Then, the bezel size on both also appears to have an average size except for the chin part which is still thick.

Small Notched Screen-Infinity U-Display
Even so, the Samsung Galaxy A32 LTE gives a slight advantage; through the use of an AMOLED FHD+ panel with a pixel density of 450ppi. Not only that, there are also advantages to the LTE version – where the display supports high refresh rates reaching 90Hz. Unlike, the Samsung Galaxy A32 5G is slightly lower with a TFT LCD panel; and only supports HD+ resolution along with a pixel density of 270 ppi. However, you should also know that the size on the Samsung Galaxy A32 5G model is larger than the LTE version. Where, the Samsung Galaxy A32 LTE only comes with a 6.4-inch screen. Meanwhile, the screen on the Samsung Galaxy A32 5G is 6.5-inches in size.
Samsung Galaxy A32 5G & Galaxy A32 LTE Front View
In terms of performance, both provide good display quality results to use. Through it, you can see each content with good coloring along with high brightness levels. In addition, both are also capable of providing a satisfactory degree of screen viewing. Only, the LCD screen on the Samsung Galaxy A32 5G model is not as sharp and prominent as the quality presented by the LTE version.
Oppo A74 5G fingerprint scanner is placed on the right side. In a pandemic era where face scans are difficult to use (they are included if you want to use them as well), the existence of a fast physical fingerprint scanner is necessary. Just a little disappointed it is placed on the right side and not on the back like on the Nord N10 5G. If you are a left -handed user, the unlocking process may be a little challenging due to the position of this scanner.
Audio jacks are also still included for those who are not yet ready to switch to wireless audio accessories. With this option the issue of audio time lag during first play will not be an issue on the A74 5G.
Dual-SIM and micro SD card support is also still available in accordance with the needs of the Malaysian market where having dual-SIM and adding storage is normal. Oppo is also not shy because the dual-SIM tray and the micro SD card are separate. All three can be used simultaneously.
Processors And Benchmarks
The Snapdragon 480 5G is a new chip launched last January as an entry -class 5G chip from Qualcomm. Even so it shares many similarities with the Snapdragon 678; as it still uses the Cortex A76 -based Kryo 460 core. But don’t be fooled by the numbers 678 and 480 here. The Snapdragon 480G uses 8nm technology instead of 11nm like the Snapdragon 678. Plus the Andreno 619 GPU is better than the Adreno 612. The numbers may be smaller; but in terms of performance the Snapdragon 480 is a better processor complete with 5G support through the built -in X51 model.

We now live in a world where the naming of Snapdragon chips can be confusing; because the 400 series is not necessarily weak and the 600 series is not necessarily powerful. In the benchmark test we did, the scores recorded by the Oppo Android A74 5G are as below.
The experience of using the first is only moderate. Most 3D primers can be played at medium settings with satisfactory frame rates. The heating issue is not so noticeable in fact we say lukewarm but not as warm as the Snapdragon 888. If the first 2D only you play, the Snapdragon 480 is more than adequate. It’s also powerful enough for 90% of everyday used apps like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Octima, and WhatsApp.
Oppo Find X3 Pro Picture Quality. The photo pan is very good with the production of more natural colors with the object taken always sharp without noticeable noise. The camera app works fast with no time lag even if the sensor used is large in size. Maybe someone said “What’s the big deal?”. It’s a big issue because there are still landmark android manufacturers out there that use large sensors but camera apps work as slow as a tortoise. Speaking of speed, the Find X3 Pro’s focusing system is also pretty fast in a variety of tested situations. An example of a picture taken is as below. For the curious, all standard modes such as panorama, macro, night and portrait are included in the app.
You can see for yourself the images taken using the ultra wide angle, wide angle, 2X and 5X settings. The zoom performance is satisfactory up to 5X the hybrid. The image is still sharp with accurate color production. The only drawback is that at 5X zoom, the viewfinder starts to sway. At the 20X zoom setting the quality of the resulting picture is completely unsuitable for use due to breakage. In addition, the image in the viewfinder makes the process of taking a picture impossible. With its good camera performance, we didn’t miss the loss of the zoom system can go any further. The Find X3 Pro camera package is almost perfect this year.

Stereo speakers use a configuration of one shoot forward and one shoot to the side. This is not an ideal configuration and as a result the audio produced feels unbalanced. The audio from below is clearly louder than the speakers from the top. At the highest settings even the resulting audio is still loud and clear. A Dolby Atmos system is included on the X3 Pro but it cannot be activated when using these stereo speakers. This is a mystery that has been lingering for so long. Why is it not activated when it can only be used on Apple and Samsung devices. Could it be that additional licensing and testing could increase costs?
The audio performance of the X3 Pro’s physical speakers is satisfactory but not stunning. But with matching accessories, the audio experience with headphones and earphones is much better. The good audio performance is not surprising as Oppo was originally a company that produced high quality audio equipment and the company’s pedigree can still be heard on the smartphones produced.
We would like to commend the speed of the included Oppo Find X3 Pro biometry system. The fingerprint scanners used may still be from the optical family but are extremely fast. As fast as the S21 Ultra which uses an ultrasonic scanner. The device can be locked without a finger being pressed hard on the scanner sensor. For those who use face scan (why use it in this masked world) it is faster than the iPhone 12 Pro Max. Just pick up the device and the screen stays locked. The only drawback is if the face unlock is done in the dark because the X3 Pro does not have the iPhone and Huawei Mate infrared transmitter.
After a week with the X3 Pro what we can say is that not only is Oppo’s design capabilities now mature but more importantly on the software side they are also able to provide an experience that is as good as other top android manufacturers. So it’s no surprise why Oppo dominated the Southeast Asian market and overtook Huawei as the number one device maker for the Chinese market in the first quarter of 2021.
What we’re hoping for is support for older Android updates from Oppo. Currently it is only given two years after the device was launched. They are behind Google, Samsung, Nokia and OnePlus in providing Android version update support for up to three years. Since Oppo and OnePlus are the other siblings of Pete Lau’s mother, it is hoped that this 3 -year support will also be given by Oppo in the near future.

In the Geekbench 5 test; the Find X3 Pro with Snapdragon 888 recorded 933/3306 marks compared to the Apple A14 Bionic; which recorded 1598/3971 marks and Exynos 2100; which recorded 1066/3345 marks. In the Antutu 3D test, it recorded 630,020 marks; compared to 667,807 marks (Apple A14 Bionic) and 631,702 mark marks (Exynos 2100).
Oppo Find X3 Pro screen is the best this year. Even under the scorching sunlight, it was still clearly visible. The HDR content viewed is very bright and there are no time lag issues. Scrolling on the Find X3 Pro feels very smooth like an oil man trying to escape from a mob of raging villagers.
If want to find the defect it is located on the hole of the selfie camera and still use the built -in fingerprint scanner under the screen of the optical type. This is hard to forgive as the Find X3 Pro is marketed as a premium flagship android and if the affordable Mi 11 can use an ultrasonic scanner what is Oppo’s reason this time around?
Next we go to the Snapdragon 888 processor which is matched with 12GB of memory and 256GB of storage on the model we reviewed. There is no micro SD card support as it has been done by Oppo over the past few years. The specifications of the device are extremely high and can meet 99% of the needs of Android users now. There are no negative comments we can write about it.

The Unique Camera
Next up is a very unique main quad-camera system. The wide -angle lens is matched with a 50MP Sony IMX 776 sensor; the ultra -wide -angle lens is also matched with a 50MP Sony IMX 776 sensor; the telephoto lens is matched with a 13MP sensor and finally a micro lens with a 3MP sensor. By using the same sensor size on wide -angle and ultra -wide -angle lenses; Oppo wants to solve the issue of different colors when photos are taken using these two lenses.
Oppo dares to go against the flow because it only offers hybrid zoom up to 5X and digital zoom up to 20X only. It is indeed much lower when compared to Samsung and Huawei’s flagship devices. The good or bad of this strategy we will discuss in the camera segment below later; along with its unique microscope features. On the front, a 32Mp sensor is used on the selfie camera.
Oppo Find X3 Pro Brief Review. Many gimmicks are used to sell devices in the market now. Some can take 8K video, HDR screen and support stylus as a remote control are among those ever offered in the Malaysian market. So producers are racing to find the next gimmick that can grab people’s attention.
The Oppo Find X3 Pro is the latest flagship device that has just been launched. On paper the Snapdragon 888 processor and very pretty body design are enough to impress but we feel the camera system as if its microscope will probably be the talk of the town. This is our complete review for the current Oppo Find X3 Pro.

Specifications And Designs
The 6.7 ″ screen from the AMOLED family was used this year with high -resolution WQHD+ support and an adaptive refresh rate of 120Hz. This puts it on par with the screen used on the Galaxy S21 which was praised in previous reviews. Like the screen of the Samsung device, the Find X3 Pro screen changes dynamically between 5-120Hz according to the needs of the application. This reduces battery usage which has long been a flagship android issue.
Oppo supporting refresh rates at the highest settings is nothing new. Even last year the Find X2 Pro was the first device we review that supported it; while Samsung failed to provide the same features. This screen is capable of displaying up to 1 billion colors; that on paper should avoid the color-banding issues that poisoned previous generation OLED screens. One unique feature we didn’t find on other devices is that; it’s the Color Vision Test feature that ensures the colors on the screen look accurate even if the user has color blindness problems. This is a big issue actually considering 1/12 of men; and 1/200 of women of the world have color blindness problems.
Firstly the greatness of the screen is slightly scratched as it remains with a double-curve on the sides. We admit the curved screen does make the device look more stylish; and sexy but in reality it is less practical. Video spills out in full screen mode and the camera app’s viewfinder doesn’t display the actual frame. Lastly Curved screens are not a feature we want to continue.
Redmi Note 10 Picture quality the mid -range devices like the Redmi series usually has results that can only be. But with the Redmi Note 10, changes are starting to appear where the photographic capabilities are much better. This makes this device fun to use as a side camera. While the difference of 48MP vs 108MP lenses is far, Megapixel is a non -determinant of picture quality. Both of these devices have beautiful, bright results, good colors and are also quite surprising.
Not many devices sold at prices around RM699-RM1099 have camera capabilities as great as these two devices. Normal mode or automatic mode looks pretty good. Focus is also no problem and fast enough and as far as sharing results on social media-these two devices are already good enough. Macro mode, ultra wide angle mode and digital zoom are all supported. The same goes for the night mode, where all of these modes have good results
Portrait pictures and selfie cameras are also quite good and bright, There are still facial problems that are softened with beauty mode. But it is acceptable. Portrait mode is not very neat, tetaopi for devices in this class – this is what will captivate your heart.
The video sample is for the Redmi Note 10 Pro, where the regular version has only basic video capabilities. The Pro mode is a bit towards an experience like a flagship device or the Mi Note 10 Lite, but the colors are still not that pretty. It’s just that it’s one of the best in this class.

Telephones And GPS
Both of these Xiaomi android also have no problems in making phone calls. It’s clear enough, but in a noisy environment the microphone is a little difficult to capture the audio being delivered. Just overall it’s really good with no problems in terms of noise or intermittent.
Both models are limited to 4G only. The internet network is more or less the same, each receiving 4G and is quite stable. But the Pro is more stable and fast in downloading things. GPS, on the other hand, is no problem, there is a slight time lag to lock the location but only travel around Kuala Lumpur – no problem getting lost or missing tracking.
Redmi Note 10 Benchmark. The benchmark test this time is a little different. This is because the Redmi Note 10 Pro cannot run Geekbench 5 apps, but the Redmi Note 10 can. Other apps like AnTuTu and Don’t Kill My App have no problem running. Well, the Snapdragon 678 is built with an 11nm design and the Snapdragon 732G is 8nm. Theoretically the Snapdragon 7xx is more powerful than the Snapdragon 6xx and the benchmark score should be vastly different.
In our test, AnTuTu displayed approximately the same score. Both devices received scores in the 200,000 category. As always, we used Black Shark cooling accessories for testing at optimal temperatures. The Redmi Note 10 Pro received 289,166 on the first test and around 270,000 on the second test and above. The Redmi Note 10 on the other hand obtained a score of 232950 and around the same score for the next test.
This is the usual score obtained for chips in this category. Even scores are mere numbers and actual usage is the right benchmark. Importantly, both of these devices have good performance for daily use.

MIUI 12 is still in use on both of these devices. But it’s based on Android 11. It’s a bit disappointing that Xiaomi took quite a while to offer MIUI 12.5 which is supposed to have more great capabilities with more interesting functions and features. Good enough that even though these two are middle class devices, they already come with Android 11. While there are still devices in the same class that are just sold in the local market come with Android 10 again.
The original Android elements of Android 11 can be used very smoothly. MIUI 12 with a design that is still the same as MIUI 11 is not boring because it is still smooth and there are no problems with system crashes or time lag. Overall, the MIUI 12 used is still the same – only the MIUI 12.5 has a lot of significant changes. For now, the existing MIUI 12 is ideal for use by former users of native Android devices as well as iOS.

Redmi Note 10 Brightness problem, the regular version is a bit dimmer than the Pro. But it’s not bad and it’s not that hard to try to use the screen in the scorching sun. Satisfaction will be more felt with the Pro version as it can display HDR content and has 120Hz refresh rate support.
It is already a trend that middle class devices come with high refresh rate support. The Pro version is unfortunately limited to 60Hz only. Even so, both screens of this device are quite adequate for any task. The Pro version just makes the device feel faster and faster when scrolling. That’s it, it’s just to make a Redmi Note 10 a little more Pro. The refresh rate system is still not very consistent compared to the pinnacle devices.
What’s important is, the Redmi Note 10 series are both despite the different chips it still gives a more or less the same usage experience. The difference is only small which for some people they may not even pay attention to 120Hz or 90Hz.
The performance of the Pro version is of course better, from memory management, multi-tasking, swapping applications and so on. Both of our review units are 6GB of RAM, so it’s easy for us to compare the two. Here it proves that the middle class Redmi devices need a minimum of 6GB RAM memory because the experience of using the last Redmi device with 4GB RAM is quite bad.

These devices also have no severe heating issues and are only lukewarm for daily use. The same goes for the use of a camera, even when recording 4K video it’s not that hot right away and can still be held well. The issue was only clearly visible during the first play. The first one tested, or what we run to torture this Redmi Note 10 series is the Genshin Impact.
Both devices are recommended to play on medium settings only. Too bad 60FPS is hard to achieve for both of these devices. In the first run of about 15 minutes, the device still does not heat up and is just warm. Like using a camera, it’s not crazy hot so it’s hard to hold. Just after a few more minutes, the regular version starts to slow down and get stuck compared to the Pro version which is still smooth. Playing PUBG Mobile also has more or less the same fate. Limited to medium settings only, but the Pro version if set to the High setting it can still run only overheating starts to occur and an unforgivable time delay starts.

Vivo X60 Pro Phones and GPS Quality. 5G is a good and fast network. But Malaysia to this day still does not offer the use of 5G to the public, so many think that a 5G modem on a device is a justification for selling at an expensive price. In my opinion it is not. 5G modems still have a function for our country that still uses 4G. In areas where my iPhone 12 Mini only accepts 4G with 1 bar for Maxis and Yes plans, the Vivo X60 Pro with two similar plans can reach 4G+ or VoLTE with full bar or at worst less than one bar only.
This makes data usage easier and faster. It is also much more stable. For phone calls, this device has a bit of a noise problem, but not severe. Only if making a phone call in the long run, this noise will be a little annoying. Although the sound is clear, this noise becomes a nuisance.

GPS is also no problem on this device. It’s fast enough to lock in locations, and there’s no problem finding intricate directions. The device also does not heat up in a brief use of Google Map.
Such a thin android of course has a small battery. But it’s not that small, as the Vivo X60 Pro packs a 4300mAh battery with 33W fast charging power. Vivo has no other charging system support except wired for this device. Then 33W is also not fast time, this is a system that is commonly seen present on devices under RM1000. Premium devices like this Vivo in my opinion a 50W or 65W system should be offered. Or at least 45W? Small batteries are supposed to have a much faster charging system.

Vivo X60 Pro Review Conclusion. The selling price of this Vivo X60 Pro device is. Yes, it is an expensive price when compared to the Mi 11 or the base model of the Asus ROG Phone 5. Just, what you need to know is the Mi 11 is for good use in overall terms. ROG for gaming, Oppo for more premium usage and there is a class and the Vivo X60 Pro is more for photography. If photography is what you want, this Vivo X60 Pro is among the cameras that I personally say are able to compete with the Pixel. It’s good. Very good. The videography is also pretty great. It allows the average user to become a professional in the blink of an eye.
The X60 Pro also uses a beautiful and state -of -the -art AMOLED screen, it has a slim and premium design, supports a 120Hz refresh rate, and runs a similar operating system to the native Android. Many of the things that Vivo has to offer on this device can grab people’s attention. I was previously less fond of the Funtouch OS and Vivo android cameras, but the X60 Pro made me fall in love with the Vivo.

The drawbacks I found on this device were the stereo speakers, the engine vibration was weak and I could only insert a regular battery once. If those three you can sacrifice, this is the device for you. Don’t think the Snapdragon 870 isn’t powerful enough and just expect the Snapdragon 888. Make a decision based on what you want to use. The Vivo X60 Pro checks all the lists for someone who wants a device that can play well first, a great camera, a gorgeous and premium screen.
Maybe with this sale price you will feel expensive. But this price is definitely for a camera, as it’s rare at all for a company from China-moreover Vivo has a device with a great camera like this.
Vivo X60 Pro Selfie Camera Quality. The selfie camera is 32 Megapixels with f/2.45 lens aperture. It’s basic only, but can still support night mode and interesting portrait mode. More fun, the selfie camera of this device has an almost realistic makeup mode. A variety of lipsticks, powders, and more can be chosen from color, glossy or matte and more can be used.
Does relying heavily on artificial intelligence or software make this device’s camera great? Yes can. Google has proven it through Google Pixel, now it’s Vivo’s turn to prove that they can too. With the help of Zeiss, Vivo X60 Pro is able to take very beautiful, interesting and charming pictures. I take selfies with this device and always look handsome, that’s the level of confidence I have on this device.
We start with a selfie camera. See regular mode and portrait mode. Both are pretty and the details are very well preserved. Not only that, the result of the portrait is neat with good and beautiful bokeh effect. To be more creative there are many filters and settings for a variety of different bokeh styles. The selfie camera on this device fades like other models and is able to preserve HDR values well. The color is also quite good and not so saturated.

Another interesting mode is the makeup mode which can make anyone wear makeup. It has a built -in beauty mode, and the results given are quite realistic and convincing.
Switch to the main camera, of which there are many modes. 48MP mode or using the main camera is beautiful. The same goes for the sleek ultra -wide angle mode, sharp colors, and pleasing to look at. Then with additional sensors specifically for portraits, many details are preserved and can make the result of the portrait image more neat. If a single -lens selfie camera can, let alone a rear camera that has three.

Vivo X60 Pro Antutu Score. The Vivo X60 Pro to me is 12+3 GB of RAM with 256GB of storage and it received an AnTuTu score of 680,756. While the Geekbench score is 1031/3374 for single core and multi-core. Comparing the score of this device with the Mi 11, which is a Snapdragon 888 device that you can already buy and the sale price starting from RM2,799 – received a score Mi 11 received a score of 1127/3670 and 706990. Oppo Find X3 Pro also received a score of 933/3306 and 630,020.
Because Vivo uses internal storage as additional “RAM”, I also tested the device with the Don’t Kill My App app to see memory management performance. Within a few hours of use, this device has no problem in obtaining a score of 100%. My own use of no time lag and no apps loading with a long time proves the memory management capabilities of the Vivo X60 Pro.

Although Vivo has launched the Origin OS operating system along with their X60 series in China, this new operating system is still limited to that country only. Global users, including in Malaysia, will be limited to the latest Funtouch OS, namely Funtouch OS 11 which is based on Android 11. Not sure if this new Funtouch OS will be popular or will make people feel bored or not. For myself, I really like it. Just a second! What? Funtouch OS fun to use? Isn’t this operating system a lot of heavy themes, fat apps and all sorts of other things?
Here you are wrong. Since last year, I’m starting to realize that the Funtouch OS is slowly and quietly moving towards a native Android usage experience. The android launcher is so basic and simple. From the notification tray, the existing Google Discover launcher side, the app tray and more; it provides a user -like experience similar to the original Android. Many original Android 11 elements are also included and easy to use. Funtouch OS 11 is more stock than Oxygen OS and Color OS.
