The Oppo Reno 8 Pro 5G is a premium smartphone from the company that is focussed on offering a premium design. The phone has a slim and elegant design that uses glass and metal.
Its display gets quite bright and colours appear vibrant. It features a thin bezel all around that adds to its overall premium appeal. The phone’s display is also HDR10+ certified and it all works as expected when it comes to streaming supported content.
The phone runs Oppo’s ColorOS 12.1, which is based on Android 12. Everything works as expected and Oppo’s O-Haptics vibration system enhances the software experience.
Camera performance in daylight is quite good, but the same cannot be said about the ultra-wide and macro cameras. In low light, the phone captures good photos, but its performance is not consistent. Battery life is quite solid and lasts a day and half on a single charge.
The OnePlus 9RT has a good in-hand feel despite its hefty 198.5g weight. The rounded edges of the aluminium frame make it comfortable to hold. It has a relatively large 6.62-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a full-HD+ resolution. The second big change lies in the performance of the phone. The OnePlus 9RT uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC making it equal to the OnePlus 9. OnePlus has even tweaked the touch response of the 9RT's screen, which can boost to 600Hz (from 300Hz) in certain games.
The in-display fingerprint sensor is lightning quick at authentication, and navigating the phone's menus is quick. Switching between apps was also seamless and it never felt like I was stressing this phone, no matter what I did. The 4,500mAh battery lasted for 20 hours and 16 minutes in our internal test, which runs an HD video clip on loop till a phone shuts off. The camera app on the 9RT has been lifted straight from sister company Oppo's ColorOS. Image quality is good but low light performance could have been better.
The OnePlus 9RT is a solid flagship that needs a couple of thousand Rupees shaved off its current asking price for it to be a good deal. If you can't wait, Xiaomi, Realme and Samsung have equally enticing offerings at better prices.
The Realme GT Neo 3 (150W) aims to offer an improved experience over the GT Neo 2 with a focus on gaming, but ends up falling a bit short of expectations in its attempt to offer more features.
Its design remains similar to the GT Neo 2, with some minor modifications to its finish. Performance with its MediaTek Dimensity 8100 SoC seems to have taken a bit of a hit when compared to what the competition offers. Gaming performance is good but not the best in this segment.
Camera performance is good both in daylight and in low light and it’s mainly down to the new OIS-enabled sensor from Sony. But it’s not as good as what the competition offers.
The 150W model offers a 150W charger in the box which does a good job of charging the smartphone quickly, but heats up the phone quite a bit.
The Nokia XR20 is a very niche smartphone for a niche set of consumers. It’s rugged design looks tough and modern, but does not feel like someone stuck a bumper case to a smartphone. Its design comes with an IP68 rating and a MIL-STD-810 rating which means it can be used in a variety of harsh environments unlike most other premium devices.
The phone has a regular LCD display with a standard 60Hz refresh rate. There’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 480 processor, which is more budget in terms of performance than what a premium smartphone delivers.
Regular software performance was quite smooth, but gaming performance was well below the mark especially when compared to similarly priced premium smartphones.
Battery life was quite good, but charging was relatively slow. Camera quality is quite inconsistent in general. While the daylight photos looked average, low camera performance was well below the mark.
