A bit more from the Technology.
By Sandeep Kumar | 27 Jul 2018
The phone is quite good as it provide what the trend currently is. But the most important factor why should I choose this phone over other phones is simply because I want a faster phone and the ability of using on screen finger print. Admit it, we want this since the day one from the smartphone brands but none came up and if they did they were all in prototype. I checked the phone thoroughly it does not seem gimmicky but let's face it, what is original anymore!? The phone is slim and weigh like those of the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium and has good battery and good camera. It is not good in every aspects but the implementation of technology in decice is promoting more and more innovations to land on the hand of the average consumer. Coming to FunTouch OS, I am able not gonna complain as the system is fluid and it gets the work done. The phone doesn't stutter under heavy loads. It works like the clone of Iphone and its true the ease of opening action bar from bottom does increase the speed. The optimisation of software is similar to what we experience in Xiaomi Devices (miui 9 or 10). The camera has shown some good picture and it works quite fast. After using the chinese variant of the device and getting the global version seems very promising and stable. The device itself is very solid and it does fall into a category of a premium device as it is vivo flagship smartohone currently. It is a promising device. Fue to unavailability of the micro SD slot, the 256gb variant should be available as 128 GB is not a very big storage option, people need lot of media content (in UHD and full HD) to enjoy on this phone obviously 128 GB doesn't let you do that. Those who are into brands might not buy it but those who like to feel the innovation and pay for the exact demands of entertainment and future might just buy it over one plus 6. The screen is vibrant just like all AMOLED panels available out there. Thanks Samsung for that. At the end the device is very good. The lack of IP67 or 68 lets it down to compete with the likes of Galacy S9, the only drawback I can find of this phone during the usage of a week.
