Smartron t.phone P design

As far as we have noticed Smartron is the best class design phone as it doesn’t comprise with its look. As you would have seen the t.phone had a bright orange rear panel, where the srt.phone has a Sachin Tendulkar’s photo and autograph with optional back panels. And the new t.phone p is somehow the exact match to the ZTE Blade A6 in hardware, except its selfie camera touts a 5-megapixel camera while ZTE phone has 8 Megapixel selfie camera. Without being surprised until we knew ZTE is the manufacturing partner for the t.phone P, specifically for the hardware but keeping software separate.

It has plastic all over that wraps around the t.phone p’s bottom and top and has a metal rear panel just to render some elegance to the design and support to fingers while holding it. On the left side, you’ll see a SIM tray and the power and volume buttons on the right. Smartron has picked up the textured metallic on and off Power button while volume keys are made of plastic, due to this change, users can easily navigate through the buttons.

The phone flaunts a 5.2 inch of a display with embedded capacitive touch button below it. Going up there is a selfie camera with flash just like a rear camera flash. At the back of the left corner, the phone has a primary camera along with a single LED flash and just around there is a fingerprint scanner that is easy to handle. There are the 3.5mm headphones jack and the secondary microphone sitting on the top. With the compact design, the phone is convenient for one-handed use. It measures around 8.9mm thick in size and weighs 160g including its 5000mAh battery.

 

Smartron t.phone P specifications and software

The most budget phone might show weak performance with its processor as it’s an underpowered but safe to use and is an exception to Smartron t. Phone P. The smartphone gets its juice from Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 4-core octa-core processor that runs at a clock rate of 1.4GHz and the other four at 1.1GHz. It holds a 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage, which can further be extended to 128GB. There is a hybrid dual-SIM design structure lets the expandable device work.

The phone has a 5.2-inch screen of 720×1280 pixels resolution generates seemly viewing angles. As with most budget phones, the Smartron phone p doesn’t give any option to tweak contrast, color temperature and the colors that it has are quite neutral. The tphone has a 13-MP rear camera and a 5 MP front camera. Regarding connectivity, it boasts a Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/h, GPS, FM, AND GLONASS support. The phone has a dual sim slot, but you can use two nano sims at a time or a single sim with MicroSD. And yes, it supports 4G and VoLTE.

Speaking of software, the smartron t.phone P runs on Android 7.1 Nougat with a few inbuilt customizations options. This time the Smartron has a slew of changes on UI. There is a launcher just like Google pixel 2 to open an app drawer when you swipe up the screen. The phone has an improved notification dots, a feature from the latest Android Oreo, that displays a bubble on app icons during notifications from them. As the UI somehow looks like stock android, but some news changes has been added this time.

You’ll see some preinstalled apps by Smartron itself on the smartphone. Some names are t.cloud, t.store, t.care, and a forum app. Smartron’s cloud storage’s app is t.cloud that offers you 1000GB of free cloud storage, and you’ll leverage this when you create a TronX ID, though you might face some error while signing up, if  it happens then try register with company’s own website as most of didn’t face any issue. Still, There is a possible chance that you might fail in creating with TronX ID.

This is being occurred because the company is still working on it and assured us that retails units will work smoothly as butter. The t.care app is utilized for contact support, and t.store is a collection app for the company’s online accessories store. You see inside it a Powerpoint, Microsoft Word, OneNote, and Skype on the phone. These are installed by default and cannot be deleted but you can disable them.

 

Smartron t.phone P cameras, performance, and battery life

The t.phone P is equipped with decent Core parts, the result will be visible in a single day as the performance is just optimum compared to most of the relevant priced smartphones which are using some other outdated or underpowered processors instead of Qualcomm Snapdragon. So far the experience of using Smartron t. Phone p has been a lag-free and no signs of delay in the UI. To some extent, the smartphone throws a lag before unlocking it and a little bit slow in fingerprint scanner.

We have compiled the benchmarks to see if it is taking on its competition. The t.phone P scores a total of 44,508 points in AnTuTu while in the Single-core and multi-core test in Geekbench 4, it scored 668 and 2,655 points sequeintly. And the phone has managed to show a 28fpg in GFXBench. Shortly the Cameras DxOmark result will be rolled out.

Battery life of this phone is just impressive we didn’t find any sudden drain in the battery while playing Shadow Fight 3. The Gaming performance is decent as well, and we didn’t notice any intense heat after a long gaming session. Despite of its large battery size the phone doesn’t support a quick charging.

smartrone-t.-phone-p-gaming-performance

 

In the HD video loop test, the t.phone P managed to show a remarkable time of 20 hr and 47 mins, which is by now the best time recorded in the sub-range 10000 Rs segments. Not only that the phone also supports reverse charging which means that you can use the t.phone P to charge other devices just like you use power bank and this phone will be your power bank too. Smartron comes bundled with a 10.5W charger in the box, and it requires at least 3 hrs to top it up.

Unlike battery performance, the camera is just an ordinary and has only few modes you can choose from. In addition to the basic photo and Video, there are Time-lapse, Beauty, Panorama, manuals and Multi-Exposure modes.

Manual mode lets you play with ISO, exposure, auto-focus, and white balance. Multi-Exposure mode lets you snap artistic photos by overlapping frame, And you see normal photo filters too which are used in normal photo mode.

As far as the camera quality is concerned the Smartron t. Phone P couldn’t impress us at some point, the images coming out were bit burn out when set to overexpose mode. Even Macros are overexposed. And the photos captured at room light or indoors showed a better quality compared to daylight. We noticed that when we kept the camera steady while taking a picture, the result came out to be fairly good, As the camera requires more time to focus on an object by reducing the shutter speed.

At the same time, the noise is almost regulated. Night shots show fewer details and selfies are overall nice and clean, and the beautify mode is seemly good in smoothening output.
Selfie shooter has a wide selfie mode to help you stitch three shots together to provide a wider frame. Regarding video quality, the rear camera remits 1080p, and front camera maxes out at 720. Smartron t. phone p’s cameras compared to related priced phones are much better, and this might be the key point of its marketing plan.

 

Conclusion:

As we have allocated its strength and vulnerability, the Smartron t. Phone P boasts good hardware for such a low price considering specs. Design and build quality is well finished, battery life is superior due to its big battery. However, camera wise, the phone is not that great but an excellent pick for this price. You’re getting what you’re paying. If you bother about the long battery life and good hardware then The buying a Smartron t. Phone P is the best decision you can ever make.

LG Q6 Review

LG Q6 Review

Before we sit back relax and read the LG Q6 Review, we are highlighting some ins and out of the LG’s recent phones. LG’s smartphone arm is having an unfavorable year so far, as its G6 flagship smartphone hasn’t been a fugitive success. Despite it being an excellent smartphone, the company has missed translating that into good sales. In addition to the premium tier, the company hasn’t had any breakout hits with its budget or mainstream contributions either. Now, with its latest Q series, LG wishes to beat the mainstream market with features leaked the G6. The big highlight of its first reveal is the taller FullVision screen.

LG launched three exceptions of the Q6 with different amounts of RAM at the beginning of July, and India has got the Q6 with 3GB of RAM. The device is priced very attractively at Rs. 15,000 (under), which LG expects will draw value-conscious buyers who want to stand out. Still, can the display only be enough to make the Q6 a hit? Let’s find out.

LG Q6 design and build quality

The LG Q6 is unquestionably one of the most comfortable 5.5-inch most recent usable smartphone, thanks to its extremely slim screen borders. The display has rounded corners similar to G6, but the Gorilla Glass would be better if it had a 2.5D curve and sat flat. It has the resolution of 2160×1080 credit goes to the taller aspect ratio. Sadly, there’s no notification LED or always-on display utility to indicate you missed notifications, so you’ll have to turn the display on steadily just to check. There’s just enough area above the screen for a selfie (front) camera and sensors, while underneath, you see an LG logo.

While the LG Q6 Review, we observed The phone uses a 7000-series aluminum frame, which is impressive reflecting we’ve usually seen this grade of metal used in expensive phones. The corners are rounded too, resembling the shape of the display. The back is plastic and attracts dirt very quickly, due to this phone looks a little unattractive during daily use. It also quickly accumulates scratches easily, so that’s something to think of.

The power and volume buttons seem good at a place, and on the left, you see the slots for two Nano-SIM cards & a microSD card. The primary slot accommodates a Nano-SIM and a microSD card whereas the second one is for a second SIM. There’s a headphone socket along with Micro-USB port on the bottom, and at the back, you get a mono speaker. It’s a quite unpleasant not to have a USB Type-C port here, even if it only operates at USB 2.0 speed. Gladly, the camera module lies flat on the back, and we didn’t get any chipping or scuffing while reviewing

If you haven’t seen it yet, the Q6 has one dazzling omission, and that’s none other than a fingerprint sensor. For some reason, LG has discarded this security feature. You’ll see the face recognition alternatively, which works great but there are some glaring imperfections which might be the issue. By default, face recognition works fast enough – all you got to do is mount the smartphone to your face, and it will automatically unlock itself. But, in front of the camera, it can easily be tricked by holding a simple photo of the user. Secondly, even though you are supported to register just one face, you can technically cheat by adding someone else’s face with the help of the ‘Improve face recognition’ option. However, to get access to this feature, you will require a pattern or a pin, so there’s some level of security put in place.

If you want to secure the recognition feature then there is a way to do it called ‘Advance face recognition.’ This doesn’t allow the 2d feature pass off for your face. But it may take a loathsome of time to unlock the phone. The low light won’t allow this function work correctly.
Overall, the Q6 is an eye-catching device, mostly thanks to its display. Feels sturdy, well built and has an ergonomic design. We’re not quite disappointed with omissions like the USB Type-C port, fingerprint sensor and notification light on the phone.

LG Q6 specifications and feature

The Q6 isn’t an individually dominant smartphone, rocking the inexpensive Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 435 platform that also works in the sub-Rs. 10,000 Xiaomi Redmi 4. This is a 64-bit octa-core SoC chipped with eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocks at 1.4GHz. It still depends on the old 28nm fabrication process. Regarding graphics, we get an integrated Adreno 505 GPU. Benchmark numbers are below average, In AnTuTu it scores like 42,392 points and 12fps in GFXbench.

Other specifications hold 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi b/g/n, USB-OTG, FM radio, and 4G VoLTE.Wi-Fi/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, USB-OTG, 4G VoLTE,

The Q6 doesn’t have a direct video call option in the dialer app, which is usually seen on Samsung phones. We’re hopeful that LG has used an up-to-date version of Android (7.1.1 nougat). Even the security patch status is relatively recent (July 1 at the time of this review).

LG’s default theme isn’t the sleekest, but you can dial down these customizations and bring the look closer to stock by the Settings app. The on-screen buttons on the navigation tape at the bottom of the screen can be re-ordered and customised, and you can add a fourth button for shifting between SIMs or drag down the notification shade, without any hassle to expand. The default single-layered look can be interchanged for the traditional app drawer layout, & Google Assistant is now too.

Stock apps add LG Mobile Switch to assist you with transfer your data from an old device to the Q6. RemoteCall Service which permits an LG customer care agent to manage your phone remotely to fix problems; a portal for themes and general news about LG products named LG Smart World; and Smart Doctor which allows you monitor your battery, RAM usage and storage. The notification shade also contains a toggle called Capture+, which permits you to draw and add text to screenshots.

The Settings app is divided into tabs which make it easy to notice what you’re looking for. You can modify the way downloaded apps scale to the 18:9 screen. This works fine with games, and you can shift between aspect ratios although this will restart the app. Other settings allow you to change the font, text size and thickness, and settings for the blue light filter.

 

LG Q6 performance, cameras, and battery life

Despite its lackluster benchmark scores, the Q6 manages basic tasks properly. We found the interface to be still without any stuttering in animations. Multitasking is controlled surprisingly well, and apps load reasonably quickly. The handset doesn’t heat up with regular use of conventional apps, but the metal frame does get hot when gaming. The Q6 also does a fair job of rendering most 3D games with playable framerates. Games like Xenowerk run smooth but heavier ones like Asphalt 8 aren’t very fair.

LG offers a feature termed ‘Game battery saver’ which when allowed to operate, is assumed to diminish the resolution of games to preserve power, but can have the impact of improving framerates. There are three choices: Extended, Maximum and Custom. The latter lets you cut the resolution to all the way to ‘low,’ which causes remarkable pixellation in games. We saw a slight increase in framerates in Asphalt 8, though the game still didn’t run as smoothly as it supposed to be. There’s also a feature termed ‘Break time,’ which pauses games and decreases the screen brightness and SoC performance to keep battery power when you leave the phone untouched.

The media playback is good to get run by a Q6’s display.But it can’t manage 4K video files. The screen is a little reflective but brightness is fair, and colors are carefully saturated. The speaker goes reasonably loud in games and media, but since it’s installed at the back, it doesn’t offer the soundest experience.

The 13-megapixel back camera captures modest levels of detail in landscapes and macros. Colors are well represented, and focusing is justly quick. The Q6 camera viewfinder holds a DSLR-style green square to showcase autofocus points, but this doesn’t always imply that your point is in focus. It’s helpful to tap the coveted area on the viewfinder to secure proper focus. Edges nearby objects in close-ups and landscapes have some compression artifacts, but this is only noticeable if the crop is done in a 100% way. The Q6 performs a decent job in low light too, with a minimum noise and details like text you see in the background of images being readable.

The quality of recorded video is fair, but the resolution is bounded to 1080p. A ‘Steady recording’ toggle in the settings supports stabilize footage reasonably well. The front 5-megapixel camera delivers surely average selfies, but you do get a wide-angle mode with which you stuff more physiques into a frame.

The camera app is simple and obvious to navigate. All the buttons and toggles are placed correctly as you would want them to be. There’s a Square Camera mode, similar to what we viewed on the G6, which permits you to use half of the screen as a viewfinder and the other half as a source to frame your shots. LG has also added a hidden carousel for smart sharing to social media.

We noticed that the 3000mAh battery endured us through almost a whole day of regular usage, but constant video playback makes a bigger hole. In HD video loop test, it lasted just 9 hours and 32 minutes, which isn’t surpassing. There’s no fast charging, which is frustrating.

Verdict

The 18:9 screen aspect ratio is certain to become big in the smartphone cosmos, and the LG Q6 seems futuristic despite its value pricing, which could be a dominant selling point. Even its look should also not be old-fashioned down the line. It isn’t the most powerful smartphone in its range so if brute force is something you’re looking for, then you better search for redmi note 3 or Honor 6x.

The Q6 stands out for the reason of its design and display, and we also admire the level of customisation we get by its custom Android UI. Apart from these items, there’s little extra to get excited about. Its budget-level processor manages performance level in particular games and apps. The back camera is decent, but the front camera could have been salutary. Battery life isn’t too powerful either. Lastly, the missing fingerprint sensor is sure to be a trouble.

We would assume that the LG Q6 is a good buy if you prioritize looks above all elements and like holding something to show off.
