As an off-shoot of renowned Smartphone manufacturing brand Oppo, OnePlus got a huge reputation worldwide for producing flagship killer phones. Day by day, OnePlus has stepped into the realm of flagship phones. On the 14th of October 2020, the OnePlus has launched its latest flagship innovation OnePlus 8T. Can this Smartphone fulfill the users’ expectations? Read this OnePlus 8T review to know its specs, features, and price in Bangladesh.
OnePlus 8T comes with an easy-to-grip flat display. Its glass built backside with metal frame offers a premium experience. Like the 8 Pro version, 8T’s back panel sports a fingerprint-resistant matte finish, which is an upgrade from the OnePlus 8’s fingerprint-hungry glossy finished back. However, 8T lacks the aesthetics of the 3D curved display we got in the OnePlus 8 and the Pro version. The design of 8T looks quite similar to the budget counterpart Nord model.
The OnePlus 8T bears a fast-responsive in-display fingerprint scanner and face unlock feature. However, the 8T lacks the dust and water-resistant rating feature making the OnePlus fans disappointed! However, OnePlus boasts about applying some kind of sealing techniques that would save this gadget from sudden impacts of water splashes.
On the top-right hand side of 8T’s rear panel, a quad-camera setup is housed on a rectangular platform. This is a noticeable change compared with the middle positioned triple rear camera set up of the ancestor OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro versions. The 8T includes a stereo speaker, but no headphone jack. It has no slot for a microSD card. The fresh flagship Oneplus 8T is found in two amazing color options: Aquamarine Green and Lunar Silver.
OnePlus have won the crown of magnificent displays, and its latest 8T continues this legacy offering a Fluid AMOLED panel with HDR10+ display. Its 6.55-inch sized screen size is both manageable to handle and comfortable to watch the contents. The 8T’s full HD resolution (2400 x 1080pixels, 20:9 ratios, and 402 PPI densities) assures flagship-level visual experience through vivid color pallet, contrast, and details.
What is more? By virtue of a 120Hz refresh rate, the OnePlus 8T features a butter-smooth navigation experience. Once you get used to a phone with such a high refresh rate, the 60Hz displays can no more satisfy you! Its front-screen and back panels are protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 5. With 678 nits brightness, 8T performs great in direct sunlight which many pricier competitors have failed to offer!
The OnePlus 8T is equipped with Kryo 585 octa-core processor with the utmost 2.84 GHz of clock speed. Though fans were expecting the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus processor in the OnePlus 8T model, it stagnates at the same old SD 865 SoC! It is a pity that OnePlus has applied the same chipset provided in the ancestor OnePlus 8 model. Maybe it happened due to the cost-cutting reasons. The 8T bears Adreno 650 GPU.
You get the OnPlus 8T in two variants: 8/128GB and 12/256GB. Like the 8 versions, 8T carries the LPDDR 4X RAM. However, the pro version’s LPDDR5 RAM was expected in the latest 8T. Nevertheless, with 3.1 data storage technology, the OnePlus 8T out-wins its ‘8 Pro’ version.
Running on the up-to-date OxygenOS 11, the 8T is blessed with the latest Android 11 OS. 8T’s OS is rich in the top-notch security features and privacy options. Though the latest OxygenOS11 operating system is highly optimized, it feels lightweight, clean, and super fast. One of the most exclusive features of the OxygenOS 11 is the ‘always-on’ display showing diverse notifications as well as versatile clock styles.
The 8T’s SD 865 CPU and powerful RAM would facilitate the smooth operations of heavy-duty apps and software. Furthermore, the intelligent vapor chamber cooling mechanism has been applied in this gadget in order to prevent the heat generation process. The gamers would love playing the latest multiplayer games such as COD, PUBG, Freefire, Asphalt 9, etc on 8T. However, playing demanding games for a long time can make this device a bit warm.
The OnePlus 8T’s quad rear camera series includes a 48MP f/1.7 prime shooter with a 16MP f/2.2 ultra-wide sensor. 8T also has a 5MP f/2.4 macro and a 2MP f/2.4 depth camera. On the front screen, a 16MP selfie camera is provided which we have also seen in the ancestor 8 version. However, the telephoto lens is omitted in the 8T version.
Its 48MP prime rear sensor takes bright and vibrant 12MP photos applying the pixel binning mechanism. Though its images feature enough detailing and greater dynamic range, it can’t capture full 48MP photos. The shots come up with a bit of imposed color tints and smoothing effects. In the portrait-mode photos, the skin tones of the subjects suffer from an over-whitening effect that everyone may not like. However, the portraits still look decent for uploading on social media.
In the low light situations, the night mode can efficiently illuminate and highlight the dark areas besides adding details. This 48MP camera is built with Sony’s IMX586 sensor which we have also seen in the ancestor 7T Pro. Certainly, an upgraded sensor could make the 8T a more lucrative deal!
Its 16MP ultra wide-angle camera features a 123-degree field of view. This sensor is efficient in capturing large groups, extensive structures, and panoramic landscapes. In ample light, this sensor takes average quality images with good detailing. The ultra-wide sensor also works with the night mode feature. However, the image processing performance is not so overwhelming.
8T’s 5MP macro sensor takes good photos but the detailings are less than the ‘8pro’ version’s micro-lens photos. However, using its 2x digital zooming capacity you can see the details. Moreover, you can shoot pleasing monochrome photos with the 8T’s 2MP monochrome camera. However, this sensor feels like a sort of publicity stunt. The provision of a telephoto lens could do better.
On the front side, the OnePlus 8T holds a 16MP f/2.4 selfie camera like its ancestor 8 and the 8 pro versions. 8T takes pretty selfies revealing sharp edges. Like the rear main camera’s portrait photos, the front shooter’s selfie-portraits bear some added hues, and softening effect.
Starting from 1080p@30fps, the rear main camera's utmost video recording capacity reaches 4K@60fps. And its Super Slow Motion mode can capture 720p footage at 480fps/1080p/240fps. The auto-HDR, gyro-EIS, and Nightscape mode can alleviate the quality of video clips. Though OnePlus claims that 8T’s video recording options include the portrait bokeh mode, its effectiveness is questionable. Besides these, the selfie camera can record 1080p videos at 30fps.
The OnePlus 8T is powered up with a 4,500 mAh battery. At the highest 120Hz refresh rate, 8T provides about 5.5 to 6 hours of screen-on-tome (SOT). Certainly, it is good news for the people who tend to use phones for long hours of the day. Lowering the screen’s refresh rate, you can enjoy longer SOT. The OnePlus 8T takes less than 40 minutes to get fully recharged. Credit goes to its dual battery pack and 65W fast charger. However, we have already seen these features in many budget phones like Realme 7 pro. However, the lack of wireless charging facility questions the fat price-tag of the OnePlus 8T once again.
OnePlus 8T's basic variant (8GB/128GB) is unofficially available at BDT 49,990 in Bangladesh. And the top variant (12GB/256GB) costs about BDT 54,990. The price may vary depending upon circumstances.
The new OnePlus flagship Smartphone 8T presents a combination of flagship-level features such as fluid AMOLED panel, full HD resolution, 120Hz display, powerful RAM, adequate storage, etc. However, in the camera section, the 8T seems to lose its flagship title. And, we have found no significant fresh technology in this phone. Most of the 8T features are available in the ancestor OnePlus phones as well as the contemporary competitor phones. Overall, considering the features, the Oneplus 8T phone’s price-tag seems a bit exorbitant.
The iPhone 12 has just been announced which means another year for mobile phone aficionados to rally behind Apple’s latest technological breakthroughs. Certain leaps like camera quality and processing speed are always appreciated, but there are a few basic features that have been put on the wayside over the years. We understand that Apple’s minimalist goals promote a more user-friendly experience, but we’d like to walk down memory lane and reminisce over some of the older features we miss from previous iPhones.
Having a Charger and Earphones WITH an IPHONE
Let’s address the elephant in the room from iPhone 12’s reveal. It’s safe to assume that no one was expecting Apple to throw a curveball like this in their latest announcement. Regardless of brand, a charger and earphones are uncompromising staples every consumer would expect when picking up a brand-new phone, but the iPhone 12 has changed this status quo - and we worry a day might come when other phone companies decide to follow suit. We understand their attempt to reduce the carbon footprint on a massive scale; it is admirable, but at what cost? Apple acknowledged that with over 2 billion existing chargers out in the wild (excluding external brands) and over 700 million earphones, there was too much wasteful manufacturing from a logistics standpoint. It’s hard to argue with these eye-opening figures but an alternative over a deletion would be nice.
Going wireless can be seen more as a preference than technological advancement. Sometimes, the wired alternative gives us a chance to use certain headphones that offer the perfect sound we’re looking for; and other times, it’s just easier on the wallet. Regardless, having a headphone jack gave us an extra option that we now do not have. The new adapters are an acceptable replacement, but the cable quality can vary between working wonders for almost a year to fizzling out in just a couple of months. The plus side is that replacing the jack with an additional speaker did make sound distribution a lot better, but some may argue that it wasn’t worth the sacrifice. On top of that, we’ve had to say our goodbyes to the good old days of charging our phones while listening to music without an adaptor. Granted, it has been a few years since iPhone users have had to go jack-less, but that doesn’t mean that this feature will be sorely missed.
Having the magic home button on the iPhone removed has in no way made the iPhone series less desirable, but we’d be lying if we said that not a single person in the community wanted it back. The introduction of facial recognition on the debut of the iPhone X was a game-changer and definitely boasted Apple’s proficiency in innovative technology (let’s pretend Samsung doesn’t exist for a moment). Your phone being able to only recognise your face is certainly by leaps and bounds more secure than a fingerprint scanner on a button; but we could make a case for preferential differences for unlocking speed and convenience. Apple did implement a setting that allowed the user to freely place a digital home button anywhere on the screen, but it isn’t quite the same. Given the current global situation, masks are probably the bane of everyone who uses facial recognition at the moment.
If you are looking for a highly efficient camera-centric Smartphone under BDT 20000, don’t miss the realme 7i. The trend-setter Smartphone manufacturing company realme has won the hearts of millions of people by launching advanced phones with the hottest features under affordable price tags. Following this legacy, realme 7i debuts in the Smartphone market of Bangladesh on the 13th of October of 2020. Stay with us to know the specs, features, limitations, and price of realme 7i in Bangladesh.
realme 7i weighs about 188g which is not too heavy. On the right side, it holds the home button and volume rocker. On the left side, it has a SIM card slot for inserting two nano SIMs with a micro SD card. The upper edge remains clean; whereas the bottom edge carries a 3.5mm audio jack, USB type c port, speaker grill, and the primary microphone. Its plastic built rear panel holds the quad-camera platform and the fingerprint scanner.
One of the most fascinating features of realme 7i is the ultra-smooth 90Hz refresh rate. You would enjoy faster display speed while browsing apps, watching movies, playing games, and surfing diverse sites/ social media. Its 6.5-inch screen bears an IPS LCD multi-touch display panel protected by the corning gorilla glass. The 90% screen to body ratio makes this phone look gorgeous.
However, 7i’s HD+ (1600 by 720p) resolution may dishearten the realme fans, as the competitor phones like Samsung galaxy m21 are offering AMOLED panel with full HD display within similar price ranges. The realme 7i’s outdoor visibility (270PPI) is quite average. This phone is available in two astonishing colors: Aurora Green and Polar Blue.
On the 7i phone, Realme is providing a fascinating camera configuration that no other brands are currently offering under this budget. 7i comes with a quad rear camera setup on its rear panel along with a front camera. The rear camera bump is a little bit elevated. Using the provided back cover you can protect the rear camera series from scratches.
Here you get a 64 mega-pixels prime rear shooter featuring a 6p lens with f/1.8 aperture. This sensor takes amazing photos with enough sharpness and magnificent color contrast in daylight and indoor light. The color vibrancy is a bit saturated but still looks gorgeous. The low-light captures will surprise you with good detailing that keeps 7i one-step ahead of the similarly-priced competitors.
realme 7i has an 8MP ultra wide-angle sensor featuring a 5-pixel lens f/2.2 aperture and 119°field of view. In ample daylight, this camera can capture satisfactory images with less distortions. You can also shoot beautiful videos with this secondary sensor.
Its 2MP depth sensor bearing f/2.4 aperture can take nice portraits by blurring the background efficiently, adding details to the main subject, and showing the edges correctly. The rear camera series also includes a 2MP Macro lens with f/2.4 aperture that can shoot average quality photos from about 4cm shooting distance.
Overall, the rear camera series of 7i delivers superb performance considering its price range. You can also improve and edit the photos using the provided photography features such as 64MP Mode, Bokeh Effect, Super Nightscape Mode, Expert, Night Filters, Panoramic/wide-angle view, Timelapse, Slow Motion, Portrait, Ultra-wide, Filter, Ultra macro, AI Scene Recognition, AI Beauty, HDR, Chroma Boost, etc.
Using the rear cameras, you can shoot 1080p@3fps video footage at maximum with several other video recording options like 720P/60fps, 720P/30fps, and 720p/120fps (slow motion). The video quality is better than average phones. What is more? Realme 7i is blessed with a bunch of video options including Cinema Mode, UIS Video Stabilization, UIS Max Video Stabilization.
Now let’s turn to the front camera. The realme 7i is blessed with a 16MP In-display Selfie camera built with Sony IMX471 Sensor. This sensor features an f/2.1 aperture and a 5P lens. This selfie camera is smart enough to capture pretty photos for uploading on social media. Like the rear camera set series, the selfie camera offers a range of photography functions such as Portrait, Face-Recognition, Bokeh Effect, Filter, Panoramic view, Beauty, HDR, and Timelapse. The front camera offers 1080p@30fps and 720p@30fps video recording capacity with the UIS stabilization feature.
Realme 7i is equipped with an octa-core processor with Kryo 260 cortex architecture featuring 2.0GHz clock speed at maximum. In this phone, realme has used a new chipset Qualcomm SM6115 Snapdragon 662 SoC 11 nm. This CPU is combined with Adreno 610 GPU. 7i is programmed with realme UI on top of Android 10 OS.
The official realme 7i is available at 8GB LPDDR4X RAM. The powerful RAM makes this phone highly efficient for regular multitasking, and smooth operations of heavy app/software. According to the experts’ view, it would have been better, if 7i could offer a better processor with a bit low configuration RAM. 7i has a 128GB internal storage with UFS 2.1 data transfer technology. This massive storage can be helpful for storing media files, high definition movies/gaming software, videos, pictures, documents, etc. And the memory is expandable using an external memory card.
Though realme 7i is not strongly recommended for heavy-duty gaming purposes, it can be used for low-end gaming. You can play PUBG at smooth graphics under medium settings. After playing PUBG for half-an-hour, you may experience some lags. The Asphalt 9 game runs on 7i but the frame drops may occur. Interestingly, the Freefire, and COD game can be playable on this phone quite smoothly without much lags. You can also try other contemporary games on this phone.
realme 7i is packed with the essential sensors like Light sensor, Proximity sensor, fingerprint sensor, Magnetic induction sensor, Gyro-meter, Acceleration sensor, etc. The networking mechanism includes GPS / AGPS / Beidou / Glonass system. This phone also includes Wireless network 2.4/5GHz, 802.11b/g/n/a/ac, and Bluetooth 5.0 technology. Its 3.5mm audio jack works fine and the type-C port proves handy.
realme 7i is powered by a 5000mAh battery. This phone can stay alive for around one day, even after heavy use. This battery supports a reverse charging facility which is good news for busy professionals. The provided 18W fast charging adapter (9V/2A) can recharge this phone within a short time.
The realme 7i 8/128GB variant is officially available for BDT 18,990 in Bangladesh.
realme 7i out wins the competitors with the 64MP rear camera specifications. Its 90Hz display offers butter smooth navigation. The 8GB RAM makes the phone highly efficient for multi-tasking. 128GB storage is enough for regular usage. However, the provision of an AMOLED panel with a Full HD display could have made 7i a better deal. Overall, realme 7i is a superb camera-centric phone under BDT 20000.
