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.
Also Read: Redmi Note 10 Brightness Problem
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.
Also Read: Vivo X60 Pro Review Conclusion
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.
Also Read: Vivo X60 Pro Usage Experience
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.
Vivo X60 Pro Usage Experience. The screen of this device is like most other AMOLED screens. But the uniqueness here is, the Vivo uses Samsung’s latest AMOLED panel with a perforated screen in the middle. The screen is slightly curved on both sides, but not very deep and still fun to watch videos, play the first or read. The screen of this device is quite beautiful, the color is bright, the brightness is bright enough and there is no problem in the scorching sun. But when compared to the Mi 11, the screen panel of this device still has its drawbacks. It’s still not as pretty as premium flagship devices and more to the OLED panels used by premium midrange android.
The included 120Hz refresh rate support makes the usage experience better. Scrolling the screen from any direction is incredibly smooth. Also matched with 240Hz touch rate support that makes no time lag when using the screen. The refresh rate on this device is the usual adaptive type, where it can only switch from 60Hz to 120Hz only. Unlike existing panels LTPO technology can be as low as 1Hz up to 120Hz.
Also Read: Vivo X60 Pro Back Panel Design
Software optimizations also help make the experience of using this device more satisfying, such as faster animation transitions and no flaws when scrolling or there are system issues crashing when opening or closing applications.
Speaking of apps, this device is fast enough to handle multiple apps opened simultaneously. This is because the Vivo uses 12GB of regular RAM and an additional 3GB of RAM taken from internal storage. This is a concept as used on Windows computers. At first I thought this was just a mere gimmick, but the crazy smooth performance of this device made me believe in Vivo’s words. Over the course of a few weeks of using this device, the only issue I faced was the device warming up when playing first and using the camera. No time lag issues, system crashes or screen scrolling there is a time lag.
Vivo X60 Pro Back Panel Design. The back panel is blank only, neat and minimalistic. The right side of the device are important buttons such as the power button and volume control. On the left side there is nothing, above there is only a microphone hole and below is the USB-C port, the speaker lattice and another microphone hole.
The design of this device is very different from other Vivo android and feels like it is a flagship device of theirs while the NEX is the flagship. On the front, Vivo has used a new AMOLED panel with a perforated screen in the middle. It is also well designed to offer a thin forehead and chin as well as an almost invisible bezel. The device’s screen is 6.56-inches in size and supports a refresh rate of 120Hz, limited to FHD+, and can also still display HDR10+content.
The device is powered by a Snapdragon 870 processing chip, which is a newer and more powerful chip than the Snapdragon 865+. It is built based on 7nm design, supports 5G, Adreno 650 GPU and overall is still powerful enough to compete with the base model of the Snapdragon 888 device. The memory on this device is 15GB of RAM, weird because the actual RAM is only 12GB and Vivo uses software to use 3GB of memory. taken from internal storage to further upgrade the performance of this device. Storage is up to 256GB UFS 3.1, but unfortunately there is no microSD card slot.

The device’s camera is also among the great ones; as it still retains a gimbal stabilization system-which is a 5-axis type for more beautiful video recording. Vivo is also partnering with Zeiss for better camera capabilities. The system used in the Pro version in Malaysia is a 48+13+13 Megapixel tri-camera and a 32 Megapixel selfie camera. As always, the Vivo device’s camera is power with more powerful artificial intelligence than ever before.
The battery is 4300mAh with 33W fast charging support only. The device also runs the Funtouch OS 11 operating system based on Android 11. The specifications look very interesting; is it just that this collaboration with Zeiss really works or is it just a gimmick? Did Vivo manage to offer a crazy great camera and be able to beat other flagship devices? In the first few weeks of use, this was among the devices with the greatest cameras I have ever used.
OnePlus Nord N10 5G Nightscape Quality, night mode is also less consistent. Sometimes the resulting image is bright and sharp. Then when taken again the focus runs away as well as showing significant noise issues. Focusing at night is also not so appropriate. Often times it focuses on the background object so that the object to be captured appears blurred.
Macro mode is just an additional feature that is actually better not included. Because of the small size of the 2MP sensor, noise problems, sharp objects and dark -looking pictures appear frequently. In our opinion the implementation of macro mode on the Nord N10 is like dropping the shell on the stairs.
The audio is satisfactory as the included stereo speakers are loud. Because of the configuration of one side -facing and one front -facing, the audio produced is less balanced with the louder bottom speakers. At the highest settings, audio is still acceptable without the issue of it sounding broken. The addition to the bluetooth accessory is good especially if it supports the LDAC codec The result is better audio from a given physical speaker. OnePlus also provides a 3.5mm audio jack. Therefore bonus points are awarded on the Nord N10’s audio capabilities.

In normal home use, an SOT life of up to 10-11 hours can be achieved with the device operating up to 23 hours. We didn’t have time to testing android with LTE completely because the pandemic made us rarely be outdoors. But based on personal, a 10 hour SOT with WiFi is the equivalent of 6-7 hours using LTE.
This life is achieved by taking pictures, using social media apps, watching YouTube and surfing the web. We didn’t even try a long first session because we didn’t play the first on the phone very often. The Nord N10’s 4300 mAh battery performance is good for devices with a 90Hz LCD screen. Even if the battery runs out it can be recharged in about 50 minutes using the 30W charger included with each purchase.
OnePlus Nord N10 5G Fast Fingerprint Scanners. It is also faster than the optical and ultrasonic systems we have used. With the pandemic era still not over, fingerprint scanners are the most suitable biometric system because scanning faces is now very difficult due to the wearing of face masks.
The classic feature of a 3.5mm audio jack is also retained on the bottom of the device. For those who hate the time lag when using TWS, these included audio jacks are much appreciated. Stereo speakers are also provided but with a configuration of one shooting to the side and another shooting to the front.
Complementing the specifications is 5GHz WiFi support, bluetooth 5.1, various satellite navigation systems, VoLTE and NFC. Perhaps many are aware that the Nord N10 does not have any waterproof and dustproof standards. But typically OnePlus puts a splash -proof coating on the internal components of the device just not undergoing official standard testing to reduce the selling price.

Usage And Software
Android 10 is compatible with the Oxygen OS 10.5.11 launcher. Yes dear readers, the Nord N10 is still using the Android 10 operating system. Maybe this is OnePlus’s move to keep the number 10 theme on this entire device. It has to be said this is disappointing as we are now in March 2021 and this operating system is almost two years old. Samsung, which was previously hated for using the old operating system, is no longer continuing this bad habit.
The positive thing we can write about the user experience is that Oxygen OS 10 is still among the smoothest with a variety of interesting additional features. It’s all done with an interface that almost looks like a native Android. Here the identity of OnePlus can still be clearly seen. In 90% of situations the device works fast and feels very smooth because of the 90Hz screen used. We only notice choke scrolling if too many apps are launch simultaneously. Maybe this is because the RAM is only 6GB.
Another worrying thing is that the Nord N10 will only receive operating system support for one year only. When it receives Android 11 later, it will be the final version. When the review was write OnePlus has yet to say when the Nord N10 will receive Android 11. This decision we feel is unwise for a company that uses the slogan don’t set. This year Samsung has already started providing operating system support for up to three generations on their midrange android. So the one -year promise for a device that uses the operating system for almost two years is unforgivable at all.
In November last year, the OnePlus Nord N10 5G officialy launched as a mid -range device for the international market except Malaysia. With this market being very competitive in Malaysia, many would have thought it would not be launched in our country. But without being called out, all of a sudden it went on sale making many wonder is this affordable version of the OnePlus still retaining the Never Settle pedigree? Through this quick review we try to answer all the questions that may be hidden in the hearts of all readers.

Specifications And Designs
With a 6.49 ″ LCD screen, the Nord N10’s screen is among the most disappointing aspects. Over the past year, the use of OLED screens has begun to become commonplace in the middle -class device segment. The color display is less pronounced with limited viewing angles. Under the hot sun, the screen becomes difficult to read. It is this shortcoming that has led to OLED screens starting to be the technology of choice with LCDs only being used on budget class devices. As an OLED screen user, the performance of the Nord N10 screen is not only satisfactory without the wow factor.
Only the supported 90Hz refresh rate reduces OnePlus embarrassment. Scrolling feels very smooth and fast even though the device is only equipped with a Snapdragon 690 processor. This refresh rate is not of the adaptive type and sometimes it does not work at a consistent frame rate. Not a lot of Chrome tabs and we can see the device choking when doing a quick scroll. The 90Hz capability on the Nord N10 is not comparable to its big brother OnePlus 8T and 8 Pro.
The screen bezel is thin except at the bottom which is quite noticeable. This makes the device look unbalanced but on a middle class android this is forgivable as it is aesthetically standard. The screen is flat which makes no issue of images spilling out to the side when watching videos. There is a small screen hole but it doesn’t overly detract from the view. OnePlus provides a feature of adding a top bezel in case you don’t like the camera hole appearing when watching videos in full screen.
Samsung Galaxy A52 gaming performance. We had a chance to test this smart device with several mobile games – it included Genshin Impact and Asphalts 9. Through it, we found that the Samsung Galaxy A52 can play Genshin Impact games. However, you are advised to play at the lowest graphics setting at 30 fps to have a good and satisfying gaming experience. Still, that doesn’t mean it can’t be played on higher graphics. The answer is, it is still possible but the user experience will change. Where, you will start to notice the game will be a bit distracted and stuck. In contrast to Asphalts 9, it can only be played at the highest graphics settings well without any extreme heat issues.

Speaking of cameras, the Samsung Galaxy A52 uses a quad-camera system on the back with 64-Megapixel with OIS (optical image stabilization) support to reduce the effects of shaking. The camera system is then followed by a 12-Megapixel for wide-angle sensor and two more 5-Megapixel sensors for depth as well as macro. Not to be outdone, the camera on the Samsung Galaxy A52 also supports digital zoom up to 10X. For selfies, this smart device uses a 32-Megapixel sensor.
In terms of quality, the photographic capabilities for this time look much better than the previous generation. The quality of the pictures taken in the lighting conditions is enough; to show good results for a middle class android. In fact, we ourselves can also see the colors here look saturated and every picture taken looks sharp with good focus. It can be said, it is also suitable to be shared directly to social media; without having to bother to edit first.
Next, the capture at low lighting is also fine. Although it still shows the effect of noise, but the details in the image are still there. However, to get better results you are advised to activate the night mode built into the camera application. Through it, it will to some extent help in providing images with brighter and more prominent colors.
Samsung Galaxy A52 Display Quality. Moving to the screen, the size used is 6.5-inch Super AMOLED with FHD+resolution. More interestingly, this display also offers 90Hz refresh rate support. Furthermore, the front display is also covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 support – which, can be considered an interesting improvement if you want to compare with its predecessor which uses Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
Before I talk more about the performance on this screen, I have noticed some comments on the video as well as a previous first glance article. There are a handful of people who ask, isn’t the Samsung Galaxy A52 also available in the version? The screen is 120Hz? Well, the answer is correct. The Samsung Galaxy A52 is indeed present in two different variation offerings namely 4G and 5G. But unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy A52 5G version is not offered at all to users in Malaysia. Instead, only the 4G version is available. So here, I hope this description answers your previous question.

In terms of personal experience, I admit to liking the screen on this smartphone. The reason is, this AMOLED screen looks so beautiful. Not only that, just look here the screen quality also looks sharp and bright. The color processing on this display is also pretty good – where the visual or video content displayed on the front of the device looks great. Everything, can be watched clearly without problems – including outdoor use.
Through it too, the resulting colors look more vibrant, in addition to the blacks that look really dark. The 90Hz refresh rate support on this samsung android is also commendable in terms of its performance. This 90Hz screen works well and every movement can be detected accurately. In a simple sense, it was satisfying and the scrolling really felt good throughout this review.
Samsung Galaxy A52 thin and light design also allows it to be easily carried anywhere without feeling burdened. Apart from that, its compact and pocket -friendly size also makes it ideal for those who prefer an ideal sized device. Easy story, fit in a small bag or hold in hand all just comfortable.
Another model approach used by Samsung here is the support of a perforated screen in the middle to fit the front camera with a single lens. As a user, you do not have to worry about the existence of this hole because its size is small and does not interfere with the use of this smart android as a whole. So, it doesn’t matter whether you use it to browse the web, or even play first. Everything is fine.

Side Device Design
For the design of the side of the device, it places the power button and volume up on the right side. Next, it places space for the SIM at the top. Talking more about it, this space only supports dual-sim slot; however it is designed based on hybrid via Nano-SIM (SIM1) + Nano-SIM/microSD (SIM2) slot. It will indirectly make it difficult for some users; to take advantage of both SIMs simultaneously when a microSD card is in use.
For connectivity, the Samsung Galaxy A52 uses a USB-C-based port for charging and data transfer purposes. More interestingly, Samsung also still retains the 3.5mm audio jack; that is placed on the bottom along with the speakers and USB-C port earlier. This is good news for anyone who is not ready to use TWS or wireless earphones. Here, Samsung provides what you need.
What makes this device even more interesting is that the support for the speakers is a kind of stereo with Dolby Atmos support. In terms of audio performance, it is capable of presenting a good experience. The resulting sound sounds quite loud at the highest settings. Using it for phone calls is also satisfying.
Samsung Galaxy A52 Official Release. Moving into 2021, we can see Samsung bringing a new identity to their Galaxy A series. There are up to four different models introduced namely Samsung Galaxy A32, Samsung Galaxy A32 5G, Samsung Galaxy A52 and Samsung Galaxy A72.
However, our focus for this article is the Samsung Galaxy A52. Unlike before, Samsung has taken a more interesting approach to the collection this time around. Each element included this time has an interesting value. Not only that, each of them is also carefully planned by Samsung’s designers.
As you can see, the appearance of each of them looks more relaxed, dynamic and even interesting. Not only that, but it also certainly does not disappoint us as consumers. Although the back panel for this time is still plastic but it is not a smooth and shiny plastic construction like before. Instead, Samsung uses a kind of matte material with four interesting color variation options – such as Awesome Blue, Awesome Violet Awesome Black and Awesome White. To find out more? Keep reading this review article to the end.

You can see for yourself, can’t you? How is the presentation for Samsung’s designs on their device collection this time around? If before, among the brands that are often associated with attractive design offerings on devices are Vivo and Oppo. This time, Samsung also does not want to be left behind to compete in providing something special for loyal users. Undoubtedly, they are now quite smart in choosing designer finishing materials for this collection. Through it, it is not only delicious to hold but does not feel slippery at all.
At the same time, such a finish can also overcome a concern that often haunts all users – namely the effect of dirt that easily sticks to the android backpanel. Moreover extreme fingerprint dirt. This time, we guarantee there will be no more problems with the matter. On the other hand, you can use it quite comfortably and well.
Samsung Galaxy A72 Battery Quality. A 5,000mAh capacity battery is used on the Samsung Galaxy A72. At the same time, it also supports fast charging reaching 25W and more importantly, Samsung also provides a charger head in the box along with it. Through this battery, it is able to provide good durability through SOT readings around 7 – 8 hours for use throughout the day. As usual, this durability will of course change according to the use of each. For recharging, it can be made via the USB-C connection port and the included cable is USB-C to USB-C type. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy A52, it includes a USB-A to USB-C type cable.
In addition, although the Samsung Galaxy A72 is a middle class android. But, it comes with interesting capabilities often found on flagship devices – such as the IP67 waterproof rating. Terroristically, according to Samsung this smartphone can be submerged in water up to 1-meter in about 30 minutes. However, it is not recommended for use on the beach, swimming pool and soapy water. Apart from that, it also has a stereo type speaker with Dolby Atmos support.

For me, the improvements that Samsung brings to their latest flagship devices are actually quite large. Who is this device for? It is more recommended for users who want a device with a premium build, attractive photography system, waterproof and even stereo speakers. I also feel not many smart devices in the same class are capable of offering this complete package in a smart device.
The offer price is RM1,899 for one. I admit, this offer may be a bit expensive for some. Still, you need to know that – to get the best of things. Of course, you have to spend more and it would not be a mistake if done in the right circumstances. In fact, I also think the design on it is more premium than a number of other devices on the market today. But if you want something cheaper, don’t worry because you still have another option, namely the Samsung Galaxy A52 which is sold at a price tag of only RM1499. As always, for those who are interested you can already get it today too!
Samsung Galaxy A72 Camera Quality. Although the Samsung Galaxy A52 and Samsung Galaxy A72 have main quad-camera system support. But, these two models actually have different sensor offerings. Where, the Samsung Galaxy A72 has an 8-Megapixel telephoto sensor along with support for 3X optical zoom and Space Zoom digital zoom up to 30X.
So, the camera settings on the Samsung Galaxy A72 consist of a combination of 64-Megapixel (Main) + 12-Megapixel (Ultra-Wide) + 8-Megapixel (Telephoto) + 5-Megapixel (Macro). Arguably, the offering is quite attractive as this is features found on a number of Samsung’s flagship devices before. For selfie photos, users can use a 32-Megapixel sensor placed in a small screen hole.
When it comes to camera capabilities, pictures taken on Samsung android certainly have their own characteristics. Similarly with the Samsung Galaxy A72, it showcases better capabilities than the previous generation. Here, it is capable of capturing photos with attractive, neutral color reproduction and quite good sharpness.

As seen on a number of examples included below. The image on the lighting quite capable of being taken sharply and there are no immediate problems. In addition, the pictures at night are also quite good with satisfactory results. But, more prominent picture production enjoyed by activating the night mode built into the camera app.
Moving to the ultra-wide picture result, it still shows the effect of distortion. At the same time, the details are also a bit runaway for some situations – at the same time, making the resulting image look less sharp. As always, nothing expected with a 5-Megapixel macro sensor on it-the result is extremely unsatisfactory with unsatisfactory colors and unsatisfactory details.
Unlike the Samsung Galaxy A52, the Samsung Galaxy A72; becomes more attractive with the support of 3X optical zoom and 30X digital zoom. The quality looks good in bright lighting, but is a bit disappointing when used at night.
The Samsung Galaxy A72 Achievements. uses the same chip as the Samsung Galaxy A52. It is powered by a 720G Snapdragon chip with a combined Adreno 618 GPU, 8GB of RAM memory and 256GB of internal storage. We also had time to do some benchmarking tests on this smartphone. Where, the Samsung Galaxy A72 managed to record a score of 288,922 points for the Antutu test. Meanwhile, 550 points for the single -core test and 1,655 points for the multi -core test are through the Geekbench benchmark.
Friendly, I haven’t experienced any performance -related iau. Overall, it is seen to be able to offer a pretty good daily use experience, not too shabby. All the processes of opening daily applications and websites can be done in a short time. Not only that, the use for multi-tasking also feels smooth.

In terms of games, there are several types of games that have just been tested. For example Alphats 9, this game can only be played at the highest graphics settings without any extreme problems. Later, the Samsung Galaxy A72 can also play Genshin Impact games that is a flagship games just like the previous Samsung Galaxy A52. However, you are advised to play with the lowest graphics setting at 30fps. It, however, can still be played at higher settings. Only, the gaming experience will not be the same in the future.
For interface support, it also uses the OneUI 3.1 operating system built on Android 11 – the same as can be found on the Samsung Galaxy A52. As always, a variety of user -friendly features can be found on it. Also, my personal experience has found the use to be very user friendly. The interface is also easy to understand and the design and icons are still minimalist.
Thanks for reading the android review article titled “The Samsung Galaxy A72 Achievements”
Samsung Galaxy A72 Size Review. Although basically the size on the Samsung Galaxy A72 can be said to be quite large for a smart device. But, its good construction makes this smart android device comfortable only to be held or held for a long period of time. For your information, I am one of the users of Samsung Galaxy Note 10+. So I had absolutely no problem getting used to a device of this size.
But, it can also be said, you as a consumer or buyer have some good options. The point here is, if you prefer a device with a large screen size – the Samsung Galaxy A72 is among the options I feel are appropriate. If not, you can just choose the Samsung Galaxy A52 which has a 6.5-inch screen size that is more ideal and easy to carry anywhere.

Speaking of quality, there’s no denying it’s a beautiful screen. All the icons and images displayed look pretty sharp and unbroken. In a simple sense, just comfortable to look at. Still, I started noticing an issue when using it outdoors – for example in the scorching sun.
To be honest, it makes me feel a little uncomfortable. I found that the screen would continue to dim – even if the brightness setting used was at its maximum. This indirectly makes it difficult for me to see or read what is displayed on the screen.
In comparison, I did not experience this issue when testing the Samsung Galaxy A52 before. The screen is bright only and can be used without any problems. All content displayed can only be read properly on the screen of the Samsung Galaxy A52. So, it is clear here that the performance on the Samsung Galaxy A72 is very different from the Samsung Galaxy A52.
