  3. Decently fast phone and responds to quick touches well – especially while using at 90hz
  4. Able to handle games easily – its a future proof chipset
  5. Aesthetically, no concerns – decent phone to carry around
  6. Great connectivity with my various bluetooth enabled devices – My Bose 700 soundbar, Oppo Enco X TWS and even my fitbit smart band.
  7. Surprisingly good video call quality on selfie camera
  8. Rear Camera setup – since not my primary phone, but if I have to rate it, I will give it 7/10.

Cons:

  1. 18w is a decent charging adapter – but if u r used to faster charging, this will dissapoint you
  2. Screen brightness is good, but being an ips LCD display, it will still keep you wanting more
  3. Mono Speakers are decent but not loud enough.
