Xiaomi Mi 9T in for review

Xiaomi Mi 9T in for review

Let's talk about that.

While there is no doubt that these new W series phones are a massive upgrade over LG's previous generation budget smartphones, they are not even close to best-in-class in terms of the hardware on offer.

The LG W10, at a cost of Rs. 8,999, and the W30, starting from Rs. 9,999 ($145), will go on an initial flash sale on July 3. The phones have much in common, sharing a 4,000mAh battery, a rear fingerprint scanner, microUSB port, a lightweight take on Android Pie, camera-based face unlock, and at least two rear cameras. The back panel comes with a pattern that gives a distinct look when light falls on it. We got the Platinum Gray model for review which has internal grooves like that of a frosted back and it surely gives a premium look. Unlike Redmi Note 7 Pro, Xiaomi's Redmi Note 7S uses Samsung sensor to deliver 48-megapixel resolution. The company's phones have never shied away from taking ... The design is very similar to Realme's. The display looked vibrant and adequately bright in the indoor venue of the launch event, but viewing angles could have been better. The colours look good and the text looks sharp in nature.

Coming to the display, the LG W30 has a 6.26-inch HD+ screen IPS screen with 19:9 aspect ratio. LG is also allowing users to tweak notch design via Settings. Redmi Note 7S is slightly more expensive than the LG phone. The memory can be further expanded via microSD card slot.

The Redmi Note 7S is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor along with Adreno 512 GPU. Camera The LG W30 has a triple-camera setup comprising a 12-megapixel low-light camera with 2 times zoom, a 13-megapixel wide-angle camera and a 2-megapixel depth camera. On the front it has a 16-megapixel selfie camera. The camera UI is pretty barren and offers just a handful of features such as bokeh, AI beauty, and time lapse. However, a wide-angle lens at this price is highly appreciated along with the depth sensor.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 7S also comes with the trendy gradient colour back cover. The camera setup is quite neatly tucked and the encasement doesn't lead to any wobbling. In real-life usage, the phone captured some sharp images in broad daylight conditions and macro shots came out to be quite impressive in nature.

Winner: Redmi Note 7s for day-to-day photography, LG W30 for having a wide lens.

Software is where the Redmi Note 7S gets sloppy. This phone is on the bulkier side, but it feels premium, thanks to the solid build quality and the metallic rim running around the edges, which LG claims is made from aircraft-grade Aluminium.
