10.or (pronounced as tenor) a Chinese brand known for its budget segment smartphones has a great range of budget smartphone services 10.or D,10.or E and 10.or G. 10.or an part of the program ‘Crafted For Amazon’. so, today we have come up with a review of a 10.or device The 10.or G, which features great features under its price range having two Variants 3GB Ram /32 Storage & 4GB Ram/64 GB storage priced at 8,999 & 11,999 respectively.
Design and Build
The 10.or G sports a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1920×1080.Talking about the pixel density of 401 ppi, the screen is quite crisp & sharp.The color reproduction of the panel is decent for an LCD. Of course, the contrast ratio takes a hit. The 10.or G comes with a metal body. The build quality is great and phone is quite handy. The Phone has rounded edges and smooth finish which feels nice. The phone comes with on-screen navigation keys and has quite thick bezels around the screen which of course doesn’t look good. There is fingerprint sensor placed at the back of the phone and is quite fast.
Software and UI
The Phone runs on Android Nougat 7.1.2 out-of-the-box.We get stock Android on the phone which is a great thing.The Phone has a standard Nougat user interface. The app drawer can be accessed by swiping up an arrow right above the dock. It also features Google Assistant, which can be accessed by long pressing the home button. The response time is quick and it can recognize a variety of basic commands in different Indian accents.It does, however, come loaded with bloatware from Amazon. You get Amazon Shopping, Prime Video, and Kindle apps pre-installed in the phone.
The 10.or G runs an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 chipset clocked at 2.3 GHz.\The combination of Snapdragon 626 and stock Android works well. The navigation is smooth. The 4 GB RAM ensures smooth operations even with multiple apps open in the background.If you are a gamer you would get a good gaming experience. We play High Graphics games such as Asphalt 8: Airborne and Modern Combat 5 which ran quite well in High graphics. You might notice a slight frame-rate drop once in a while. This phone heats up quite bit while playing high graphics game. However, that’s perfectly normal, as the device is dissipating heat via metal.
The 10.or G has a dual camera setup at the back i.e the one 13MP RGB sensor accompanied by a depth sensing 13MP sensor. The phone offers Face Detection Autofocus and HDR.The 13MP shots present plenty of detail under good lighting conditions. You also need steady hands for good results, as the camera lacks OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation). The low-light performance of the camera is nothing to write home about.
The phone records Full HD 1080 videos at 60 fps. However, the videos turn out to be quite shaky unless you have undergone the sniper training. Another niggle is that the camera tends to refocus all the time.
It can, however, create fancy bokeh effect thanks to its dual camera setup. The 10.or G allows you to select the focal point and adjust the magnitude of the blur effect.Thanks to the selfie-rage, front-facing cameras are now more important than ever. The 10.or G offers a 16MP front-shooter with an LED flash to keep it a company. Although selfies are not my cup of tea, I must admit that the camera is very good at snapping self-portraits. The camera captures a good amount of detail and renders natural colours.
The 10.or G is powered by a 4,000mAh battery. As a result of a high capacity battery combined with a power-efficient processor, the phone offers excellent battery life. On a single charge, the phone easily lasts for 30 hours. This includes nearly nine hours of screen time. The phone lacks quick charging feature. It takes two and half hours to fully charge the battery.
I would say the dual-speakers are quite loud and do a pretty good job. Not that they offer depth and quality sound, but if you wish to watch a YouTube video without plugging in your earphones, the phone has got you covered. The 10.or G comes with a good old 3.5 mm audio jack. When paired with good earphones, the phone’s output is quite good.
The 10.or G offers good build quality, great performance, and long battery life. I would say Its camera could have been better, camera doesn’t produce such great results when compared to the specs mentioned in the box.Overall it is a good phone. All in all, if you are looking for a budget smartphone, the top two contenders are still the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and Mi A1.You Can Go for 3GB/32 GB Variant which would be a good option.
