Xiaomi Mi 10i 5G Review

For:

  • Although this is a pretty bulky phone, it isn’t too hard to hold and use thanks to the rounded edges. A bit of shuffling in the hand will be necessary but at least the rear isn’t too slippery.
  • One neat feature is the adaptive refresh rate, which can scale between 30Hz and 120Hz in six steps.
  • Chip is newer than the Snapdragon 765G and has some advantages in the form of more modern high-performance.

Against:

  • The 4,820mAh battery might not seem like much by today’s standards
  • The lock screen shows sponsored content by default and it takes a bit of digging in the Settings app to turn this off.
  • Fingerprint sensor is pretty narrow, and the size of this phone makes it very awkward to use

Realme Narzo 30 Pro Review

With 194 grams of weight, the phone might seem hefty but fortunately, it isn’t. There’s a side-mounted fingerprint scanner on the right side that doubles as a power button too. The best thing is that all the buttons around the edges have good tactile feedback to them.

The display mounted on Narzo 30 Pro 5G is not that impressive although it is something you get at this price tag. But the display has a 120Hz refresh rate which is quite awesome since it was only Poco X3 with such capabilities.
