Walton has been a market leader when it comes to consumer electronics in Bangladesh for a long time now. The company ventured into the phone market almost a decade ago with its own line of feature phones. Over the years, the company manifested itself in the smartphone industry from entry-level to high-end phones. In line with their commitment, the brand recently launched the Walton Orbit Y50 on 27th September 2022 in the Bangladeshi market. Here’s a detailed take on the device. Key Specifications of Walton Orbit Y50 Design and Build Quality It's every bit generic smartphone design as we have seen previously from Walton. It is not necessarily a bad thing. The dimensions of Y50 are 173.5 by 78.5 by 9.3mm. It weighs 212g including the battery. Not to mention the phone is a bit heavier than the similarly priced competitors from international brands. Read More: Xiaomi Redmi A1+ Review: Budget phone with fingerprint sensor The Y50 boasts rounded edges with a texture-like plastic back and a vertical camera housing. The back also houses the fingerprint scanner, one that is increasingly becoming obsolete in the back position. On the front, there is a glass display. the display isn’t rated for protection. But that is understandable given the price it comes at. While the bezels and chin might feel a bit thick by 2022 standards, it is what you get for what you pay. All the other ports and buttons stay in their usual place on the Y50. The 3.5 mm jack has been housed on the top of the device with the sim tray and micro SDXC slot finding their place on the right of the device. Read More: vivo Y22s 4G Review: Will it survive competition? Overall, the design and build quality of the Y50 won’t blow anyone away. But for its price, it’s a perfectly functional design with daily usage in mind. Display Walton Orbit Y50 sports a 17.3cm or 6.82-inch IPS V-Drop Display that features a 20:9 aspect ratio and 2.5D Glass construction. The display of the Orbit Y50 is an HD+ IPS IN-CELL display. Walton calls it their full-lamination V-drop display. That’s just a fancy way of naming the TFT tech and the waterdrop notch on the screen. Read More: Xiaomi launches Redmi Note 12 series: Can it hold the legacy? For its price, the choice of IPS IN-CELL is understandable. Walton did a better tuning with their display this time around as it looks much more vivid and sharp compared to other similar devices. However, the viewing angles aren’t all that great. There are noticeable color shifts along with flickering if you view the display from the sides. The brightness levels are also average and even though the display is fully laminated, you would still see a strong glare under direct sunlight. It’s clear that the Y50 won’t be the perfect media consumption device. But for day-to-day use, it will get the job done regardless. Read More: realme C30 Review: An entry-level phone with smooth performance Camera The Orbit Y50 boasts a triple camera setup on the back. Walton claims it to be an AI camera which is again, their fancy way of naming the object detection tech included in the main sensor. Even though there are three sensors on the back, the main 13 MP sensor does all the heavy lifting. In fact, Walton doesn’t even provide any information regarding the accompanying secondary cameras. Coming to picture quality, the pictures look sharp and detailed in outdoors and well-lit environments. The portrait mode also works well to detect the edges and properly expose the subject. Read More: OPPO F21s Pro Review: What new features does it offer? But the problem starts in artificial lighting conditions. Even though Walton claims that the main sensor has a larger aperture, it still fails to properly expose subjects every now and then. This leads to underexposed and grainy shots at night. The story is similar to the front 8 MP camera as well. It produces passable results but nothing out of the ordinary. The videography of the Y50 is limited to 1080P at 30 fps. But without any internal and external stabilization features, the video ends up looking shaky and out of focus at times. Read More: Infinix Zero Ultra Review: Worth the hype? Processor and Performance The Orbit Y50 comes with an Helio A22 chipset based on the ARM Cortex A53 chip design. At its core, it has an octa-core chip design with 6 mid-range and 2 high-performing cores. The CPU is complemented by PowerVR Rogue GE8300 GPU. The processor performs just as it does on paper. It’s a through-and-through entry-level processor designed for basic day-to-day tasks like social media browsing or YouTube. But does that mean you can't game on it? Fortunately, you can. Even graphics-intensive titles like Asphalt 9 and PUBG run well without a hiccup on low graphics settings. If you go for more than that, the device will heat up really fast and thermal throttling will kick in. Read More: Tecno Pova 4 Pro Review: Budget gaming phone with a massive battery The device also has a modest RAM of just 4 GB with 64 GB onboard storage. Given the RAM capabilities, it would be best not to push heavy gaming on this device. However, one of the positives of this device is that it comes with Android 12 out of the box. Even though it's not the latest one, users can expect to get the 13 sometime in the future. Battery and Charge Time The Walton Orbit Y50 comes with a 4200 mAh battery. The large battery compared with an entry-level display and power consumption makes this device good enough to run for 8 to 10 hours at a stretch. Read More: vivo V25, V25e Review: Is the Price Difference Justified? However, charging the device would be a hassle as there is no provision for fast charging on this device. Official Price of Walton Orbit Y50 in Bangladesh Walton has officially launched a single variant of 4/64 GB in metallic gold, baby blue, and pine green color. The price of the device is currently 12,999 BDT. However, the price is subject to change. Final Words Walton is a local brand and the Y50 is an ultra-budget device. Being a local brand, Walton can incorporate features and experiences on the Y50 which would otherwise be impossible for any sub 15K BDT device. So when you look at the features and specs, bear in mind the value proposition it brings to the table. Read More: Top 10 phones coming to Bangladesh in November 2022 The Orbit Y50 doesn’t really reinvent the wheel; rather it takes the existing features of a great entry-level phone and repackages it with a refreshed design. The battery, hardware, and software experience are definitely its highlight. However, in a classic entry-level fashion, the device does fall short in the display and the camera department. So if you aren’t bothered by an above-average display and a mediocre camera, then Walton Orbit Y50 is sure to be worth every penny.
The Chinese electronics company Xiaomi’s subsidiary company Redmi was first introduced in July 2013 as a low-cost smartphone line. In 2019 it was separated into a sub-brand of Xiaomi to produce entry-level to mid-range Smartphones and gadgets. A1+ debuts in September 2022 under Redmi's entry-level lineup 'A' series. Let’s take a look at the specs, advantages, and limitations of Redmi A1+. Key Features of Xiaomi Redmi A1+ Design and Features The Xiaomi Redmi A1+ has preserved the dimensions of 164.9 x 76.8 x 9.1 mm or 6.49 x 3.02 x 0.36 in. It weighs 192 g. and has two SIM cards. It has a loudspeaker and a 3.5mm jack. The WLAN communications such as Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, hotspots, and so on are also there. It supports Bluetooth 5.0, and NFC. It has GPS, as well as A-GPS, GALILEO, GLONASS, and BDS. The phone bears a fingerprint scanner at the upper mid portion of the backside. It is probably the first smartphone in the international market to offer a fingerprint sensor. The rear side of the phone is made of premium-category plastic. It has a leather texture that gives an utmost elegant look. The back side also rooms a dual camera with a flashlight at the left upper corner of the phone. Read Morevivo Y22s 4G Review: Will it survive competition?: There are three color options available for the Redmi A1, including light green, dark black, and light blue. For the purpose of this review, we used the option with the light green color, and we found that the natural hue pairs well with the simple design of the smartphone. Display The 6.52-inch IPS screen on the front of the device offers a typical 60 Hz refresh rate and an HD+ resolution of 1600 x 720 pixels. The display has a 120 Hz touch-sampling rate, a 400-nit screen brightness, and glass that resists scratches to safeguard the screen. Additionally, the front of the device sports a notch that houses a 5 MP selfie camera. On the phone, there is no fingerprint reader. If you want to use it to view SD video, the display is fairly good. The display has a ceiling that it reaches rather early, and there isn't much more you can do with it after that. The outcomes were in line with what one would expect from a budget smartphone when we viewed videos on YouTube, Netflix, and Hotstar. Not really unique, but excellent for the cost. Read More: Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro Review: Know the Pros and Cons In addition, the display is capable of reaching a maximum brightness of 400 nits and a refresh rate of 60 Hz. Although the sensation of scrolling is satisfactory, the haptic stimulation has been turned up to a significant degree. It's possible that you'll need to spend some time configuring the phone in order to fix that issue. Camera The cameras on the Redmi A1 Plus are similarly more focused on getting the job done than on wowing users with their quality or capabilities. When the lighting conditions are favorable, the 8-megapixel primary sensor on the rear of the device produces shots of satisfactory quality. It even does a respectable job with portrait photos (aided by the secondary 0.3-megapixel snapper on the back). If you do not go into this situation expecting top-of-the-line colors and detail, you will not be disappointed. Instead, you will end up with snapshots that are excellent enough to post on social media and send in emails and texts. Read More: Infinix Zero Ultra Review: Worth the hype? Videos are, at most, suitable for sharing on social media, although there is a useful time-lapse mode available. When there is not enough light, either still or moving images will have worse quality. Even while the color reproduction of the 5-megapixel front-facing camera is not quite up to grade, if you take your selfies in well-lit environments, you will have photos that are worthy of being shared. This is not a camera for serious photographers; rather, it is a point-and-shoot model in the traditional sense. If you take enough precautions, you should be able to get passable results. Perhaps even the odd one out that stands out. Read More: OPPO F21 Pro 4G Review: Special attraction for Shakib fans Performance and Hardware The Redmi A1 Plus is driven by a chipset identified as a MediaTek MT6761 Helio A22. The performance of this processor is satisfactory when it comes to carrying out fundamental activities like navigating the internet, making video calls, utilizing navigation, and many other activities. 32 gigabytes (GB) of storage space is provided, and 3 GB of RAM. The Redmi A1 Plus utilizes Android 12 GO, which is an operating system developed by Google specifically for use in low-cost smartphones. On top of this operating system, you won't find much evidence of MIUI at all. The user interface is rather uncluttered, and with the exception of Facebook Lite, the phone does not have any bloatware applications. We put the smartphone's graphics processing unit, or GPU, to the test by playing some light games like Subway Surfers, Candy Crush, and Clash Royale. The handset features a PowerVR GE8320 GPU. Read More: vivo V25, V25e Review: Is the Price Difference Justified? As soon as we were satisfied with the smartphone's overall performance, we fired up Garena Free Fire Max and got to playing. Even though there were some delays, the phone performed a good job of providing a gaming experience that was excellent. Battery and Charging The Redmi A1 Plus features a battery pack with a capacity of 5,000 mAh. As it is combined with the phone's basic hardware and operating system, results in extremely long battery life. The smartphone's battery was easily able to last for two days with moderate use, which included sending and receiving messages on WhatsApp, browsing the web, listening to music, taking pictures, and watching nearly two hours of content each day. If you use the battery backup system more sparingly, you should have no problem reaching three days. Read More: Top 10 phones coming to Bangladesh in November 2022 The smartphone can be fully charged using the 10W charger in less than three hours. Price of Redmi A1+ in Bangladesh The Xiaomi Redmi A1 Plus is not yet available officially in Bangladesh. In the Indian market, the phone costs INR 7,499 or BDT 9253. The conversion rate here is 1 INR = 1.23 BDT. However, the official price of Redmi A1+ in Bangladesh may vary due to tax and other issues. Conclusion In this phone, the manufacturer has included all of the necessary features that consumers anticipate seeing on an affordable smartphone without sacrificing the device's overall performance. A few features like the chin and bezel width and the VGA camera on the rear could be improved for a better experience. Read More: Xiaomi launches Redmi Note 12 series: Can it hold the legacy? On the whole, the Redmi A1+ phone provides a standard experience under the budget range. Those who are upgrading from a feature phone may consider Xiaomi Redmi A1+.
The smartphone market for entry-level to lower mid-range has always been filled with competition. vivo has been a key player in this market with its range of devices, especially the Y series. The series first debuted in 2019 with the vivo Y3. Over the years there have been several additions to cater to the dynamic needs. vivo’s latest Y series phone Y22s was launched on 23rd August 2022 globally. Now, it is available in Bangladesh. Here’s our detailed take on the key features of the vivo Y22s so that you can decide whether to go for it or not. Key Specifications of vivo Y22s Design and Build Quality The design elements of the vivo Y22s are reminiscent of its previous generation, the Y21s. There is a similar brushed-back design with diffused reflection making it look much more premium than its price class. It also does an excellent job of repelling fingerprint smudges and overall wear and tear. However, the build is still plastic. The phone features plastic all around with an unrated glass front. At this price point, the choice of a premium design with a plastic build is not surprising. And it shouldn’t bother you much if you put in a case on the device. Read More: Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro Review: Know the Pros and Cons The dimensions of vivo Y22s are 164.3 by 76.1 by 8.4 mm. The device weighs about 192g. Moving on to ports and buttons, the Y22s features all the essentials. The 3.5 mm headphone jack still stays right beside the secondary mic and the bottom-firing speaker. The left of the device features the sim slot along with the dedicated micro SDXC slot. The right side features the volume rocker and the power button which also doubles as the biometric sensor. The overall design and the build quality of the Y22s are satisfactory. However, the only drawback might be its front design which has rather thick bezels and chins compared to the 2022 standards. Read More: Apple iPad, iPad Pro 2022 Review: World’s most advanced tablets Display Perhaps the most visible letdown of the Y22s is its display. While it might seem like a stretch, for its price vivo should’ve included better hardware in the display department. Considering this is the primary contact point between the user and the device. The Y22s features a 6.55-inch 720P IPS LCD panel with 270 PPI density. It has a resolution of 720 by 1612 pixels. The choice of IPS LCD is still understandable, but considering that vivo has priced the device in the mid-range segment, it definitely should’ve included FHD+ resolution or a faster refresh rate. Many of vivo’s competitors offer the same along with AMOLED at this price point. Speaking of the display itself, it doesn’t have the weird color shift or blue tint like that of other HD+ LCDs. However, that’s the only good thing. Read More: Top 10 phones coming to Bangladesh in November 2022 The colors on the device look a bit washed out and the lack of vibrancy is even more noticeable because of the lower resolution. The display does get relatively bright in both indoor and outdoor use but it’s no match for direct sunlight as you will notice glares even with max brightness. Overall, the display could’ve definitely been better on the Y22s. What it brings to the table is passable but it definitely won’t be the key selling point of the device. Camera The vivo Y22s features a dual camera system. This might seem like a downgrade from the previous generation which had a triple-camera setup. But there’s more than meets the eyes. Read More: Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Review: Can it fulfil users’ expectations The main sensor of the vivo Y22s is a 50 MP ( f/1.8) wide-angle shooter. This is the same main sensor found on the Y21s. the Y21s had an additional 2 MP depth and macro sensors. This Year vivo dropped the depth sensor and kept the 2 MP (f/2.4) macro shooter for a dual camera setup. Moving on to the performance of the cameras, the main sensor steals the show here. The pictures look great in outdoor condition with decent lighting. For a mid-range smartphone, the camera was surprisingly good at capturing the dynamic range and details. The portraits however were a hit or a miss. Sometimes it captured great details along with proper edge detection. But other times the subject wasn’t properly exposed. Read More: vivo V25, V25e Review: Is the Price Difference Justified? The exposure issues become even more apparent indoors or in dimly lit environments. The Y22s also suffer from grains and noises in any form of artificial light. The videography of the phone is limited to 1080P at 30 fps. The front side offers a generic 8 MP (f/2.0) shooter which gets the job done. It can capture 1080p footage at 30fps. Processor and Performance Moving on to the processor, the vivo Y22s features a Snapdragon 680 4G chipset based on the 6nm architecture. The 680 chip from snapdragon is the perfect mid-range chipset which has been a reliable choice for a few years now. The processor’s graphic unit is equipped with an Adreno 610 GPU. Read More: OPPO F21 Pro 4G Review: Special attraction for Shakib fans Similar reliability is reflected in the performance as well. Although not touted to be a gaming phone, the Y22s can handle gaming pretty well. Especially titles like COD, PUBG, and Asphalt 9 play at the highest settings without any hiccups. The only problem here is that the device does get heated up after quite some time of continued gaming. For day-to-day task, the Y22s performs like a breeze. The Funtouch OS also came a long way from its initial days to be more streamlined and responsive. Overall, the performance of the Y22s justifies the price it comes at. Battery and Charge Time The vivo Y22s comes equipped with a 5000 mAh battery. Combine this with the moderate display and the device can easily last around 8-10 hours of continued usage. The device also supports 18W wired fast charging which vivo claims can go from 0 to 70% in 70 minutes. Read More: realme C30 Review: An entry-level phone with smooth performance Official Price of vivo Y22s in Bangladesh The Y22s is available in two variants – the 6/128 GB one and the 8/128 GB configuration. Currently, the 6/128 GB variant is officially available in Bangladesh. The price of the device is 21,999 BDT and can be currently pre-ordered. However, the price is subject to change. Verdict The vivo Y22s checks a lot of the boxes when it comes to affordable mid-range devices. It has got a good camera, a decent battery, and a durable build with stylish looks. However, the one aspect that will bother any user is the display. Other than that, the vivo Y22s smartphone seems to be a standard phone for average day-to-day tasks.
Youth-centric brand realme will bring the entry-level smartphone C33 with a stylish design and powerful camera Tuesday.

Xiaomi's sub-brand Redmi launched four new phones, Redmi Note 12, Note 12 Pro, Note 12 Pro+, and Note 12 Explorer, under its latest Redmi Note 12 series on November 1 in China. The phones are expected to be launched in Bangladesh and other Asian countries by the end of November. Let’s take a look at the key specs of the Redmi Note 12 Pro. Key Features of Redmi Note 12 Pro Design The Note 12 Pro represents a continuation of the previous generation’s design. The front screen with a flat back panel and a straight-back frame basically resembles the design of the Note 11T Pro. But 12 Pro has a larger, more powerful camera module. It comes in four colors, black, blue, white, violet or purple. The side still includes a power button that functions as a fingerprint too. On the top, you will get an IR emitter, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and NFC. However, the SIM card slot does not function with TF cards. Read More: Apple iPad, iPad Pro 2022 Review: World’s most advanced tablets The 187g weight, as well as the 7.9 mm width, contributes to the Note 12 Pro feeling like a lightweight device despite its 162.9 by 76 height and length. Note 12 Pro should get a very high score for its form factor at a mid-range. Display The Note 12 screen looks the same as the one on the 11 Pro, but there are some small upgrades. A larger 6.67-inch OLED display uses a smaller bezel, which yields the most noticeable difference between those two devices. It looks more beautiful than average mid-range phones do from the front. The quality of the screen is excellent and creates a diamond-quality pixel. The display’s resolution is 1080 × 2400 pixels with a 120Hz refresh rate. It uses a 1920Hz pulse-width modulation dimming in low brightness and supports Dolby Vision (900 nits peak brightness). The quality of this screen is best in the same price range. Read More: Top 10 phones coming to Bangladesh in November 2022 Hardware Performance on the Note 12 Pro’s weaker side comes from using the Dimensity 1080 chip, a 6nm mid-range MediaTek chip. Both AnTuTu and 3DMark are showing very similar ratings to the prior Generation Dimensity 920 with a 968,607 AnTuTu score. The graphic unit is enriched with Mali-G68 MC4 GPU. The phone runs on MIUI 13 OS on top of Android 12. Ultimately, you can evaluate the level of performance of a chip when you visit the framerate information for each video game. Of course, it’s no problem for PUBG on a mobile device. As per Genshin Impact, its average fps was less than 40, which is not an excellent performance. Read More: vivo V25, V25e Review: Is the Price Difference Justified? So, it is better to buy Dimensity 8100 phone if you prefer a better chip. So, Note 12 Pro falls behind the Note 11T pro in hardware comparison. Storage Although you cannot add an external memory card, the four memory variation should be good enough for you. Note 12 Pro comes with 128GB 6GB RAM, 128GB 8GB RAM, 256GB 8GB RAM, and 256GB 12GB RAM version. But you might not get all the versions in Bangladesh. Here you get UFS 2.2 data transfer technology. Read More: realme C30 Review: An entry-level phone with smooth performance Camera Redmi focuses on the camera of Note 12 Pro. However, it does not use the latest 200MP main camera. But Redmi emphasizes filters and Art frames. Seven new filters have been added to the Note 12 series, all of which make photos appear grainy while altering the color. Moreover, some scenes may look excellent on these filters, making them great for film photography. So, this phone is recommended for people who enjoy photography. Rear Camera Series The back camera includes a 50 MP wide-angle main camera that features an f/1.9 aperture, 24mm lens width, and 1/1.56-lens size. This sensor has introduced a new optical image stabilizer this time. Read More: Infinix Zero Ultra Review: Worth the hype? The sensor part has also become larger, so the video recordings or photos in dim light have improved over the previous context. In particular, the 2x magnification is just fine with handshakes, even as the recent 5x magnification has no shaking in the dark as it was before with previous models. Now the night vision setting is even more fun. It does not improve the dynamic range but just lowers the highlights and darkens the dark portions. Consequently, it makes night scenes more enjoyable and relaxing without noise. Some scenes demand stronger highlights, and it can cause unwanted exposure, just like a neon box, which doesn’t look as good as the automatic mode. And oftentimes, the color temperature is too cool, so it can be difficult to take a good photo at night with the Note 12 Pro if you lack expertise and skill.

It also has a 2 MP macro sensor with an f/2.4 aperture. However, the macro camera performance is not the best. It is not recommended for frequent use. Front Camera On the front side, Redmi Note 12 Pro sports a 16 MP (wide) selfie sensor. Its sensor size is 1/3.06-inch and 1.0µm. Video Capacity The video recording quality has improved significantly than Note 11 Pro. Because its ability to stabilize video recordings is improved by the addition of OIS. But additionally, by taking into consideration other smartphones with EIS, Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro’s recording is not superior. Read More: Xiaomi 12T Pro Review: Is the hype real? The highest camera shooting parameters on the Note 11 Pro are 4K 30fps for the main camera and 1080P 30fps for the ultra-wide camera, which are the same in the Note 11 Pro. With the front camera, you can shoot 1080p footage at 30 or 60fps. Battery and Charging The Note 12 Pro comes with 67w charging power for a 5000mAh battery. However, it is 20g lighter than Note 11 Pro, and the battery is 160mAh smaller. Since the phone might give you a reduced performance, the battery life should be long-lasting. Therefore, it is a good improvement over 11 Pro+.

However, the official price of Redmi Note 12 Pro in Bangladesh may vary due to tax and other issues.

The display also supports Dolby Vision, HDR 10, 10-bit color, and HDR 10+. All these models are powered by Dimensity 1080 chipset.

Xiaomi released its Redmi Note 12 series on October 27 in China. This series has 4 models, including Note 12, pro, Pro+, and Explorer Edition. Note 12 is the basic model in the Redmi Note 12 lineup. Although Note 12 serves as a starting point for the Redmi Note 12 series and provides the greatest bargain for certain customers, it is far from a low-end device. It has a few good features with some drawbacks. Let’s take a look at whether Redmi Note 12 can fulfill the expectations of the Xiaomi fans. Key Features of Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Design The Redmi Note 12 is a masterpiece in this area, as Xiaomi has essentially mastered the art of making its phones seem to be flagships. While choices from manufacturers like Nokia and Motorola make a valiant effort, they tend to have a certain clunky feel that Xiaomi continually avoids with its tiny budget phones. The 6.67-inch screen dominates the front, which has very tiny bezels all the way around. The "chin" has a somewhat larger frame, but even so, it is still just a few centimeters thick. There is very little area utilized for anything other than the screen because of a tiny notch at the very top of the display in the middle. Read More: Apple iPad, iPad Pro 2022 Review: World’s most advanced tablets the dimensions are 165.9 by 76.2 by 8 mm. Weighing 188g Note 12 won’t feel much heavy. It bears dual SIM. IP53 grade splash and dust resistance make the device more user-friendly. The stylishness is seen on both sides. Even though it is slightly prone to smearing, the smooth plastic is pleasant to hold and gradually slopes toward the corners. A sizable rectangle in the upper left corner perfectly encloses the dual-camera array. Display The screen of the Redmi Note 12 is a 6.67-inch OLED device with a resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 or 409 pixels per inch. It is also capable of 120Hz refresh rates, however, you have to choose this option since 60Hz is the default. Read More: Top 10 phones coming to Bangladesh in November 2022 And except for one aspect, it's a great screen. With a volume of 95.8%, it shows a complete spectrum of colors in an accurate and brilliant manner and covers 95.4% of the sRGB gamut. Despite using OLED technology, it still has a good 428cd/m2 brightness level, making it legible unless on the brightest of days. Due to OLED technology, contrast is also excellent. All of this results in a screen that is on par with others in this price range (and several above it), but there is one peculiar aspect. The text on the menus sometimes drags and appears in two locations at once for a little period of time, making the text look as if it can't keep up with the pace of screen refresh. Camera Depending on your perspective, the Redmi Note 12's inclusion of no less than 2 cameras on the rear is impressive—or too ambitious. There is just a 2MP (f/2.4) depth sensor in addition to the wide 48MP primary camera. The main sensor features a 0.8 nichrome lens size. Read More: vivo V25, V25e Review: Is the Price Difference Justified? On paper, everything seems great, but the pudding is the true test, and to stretch the analogy too far, this dessert is noticeably underdone or more accurately, undersaturated. On the front side, the Note 12 sports an 8MP wide selfie camera featuring an aperture of f/2.0, with a 1/4" and 1.12µm lens size. The 8MP front-facing camera exhibits the under-saturation issue while taking selfies. With the main rear camera, you can shoot 1080p footage at 30 or 60fps; while the selfie camera allows you to capture 1080p footage at 30fps. Read More: OPPO F21 Pro 4G Review: Special attraction for Shakib fans Performance and Software Things have been going rather well up until now, but they are about to take a turn for the worst. The scores gave a rather mixed image of the capabilities of the Qualcomm Snapdragon, despite the fact that the Redmi Note 12 feels absolutely quick while surfing the internet and switching between apps. The processor used is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 4 Gen 1 6nm chipset, and it is accompanied by Adreno 619 GPU. Note 12 has up to 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage space. Its variants are 4/128GB, 6/128GB 6GB, 8/128GB, and 8/256GB. The device features UFS 2.2 data transfer technology. Read More: realme C30 Review: An entry-level phone with smooth performance To evaluate the gaming performance of Redmi Note 12 we have done 3D testing. It has almost half the performance of the similarly priced competitor phones. Battery and Charger A battery with a capacity of 5,000 mAh is considered to be rather ample; the only time you'll need to go for a charger throughout the day is if you're engaging in energy-intensive activities such as gaming or GPS navigation. It's remarkable that after an hour of watching a streaming video with the volume turned down and the brightness turned all the way up, the battery only dropped by five percent despite these extreme conditions. Read More: Infinix Zero Ultra Review: Worth the hype? Because of its low price point, the Redmi Note 12 does not support wireless charging, which is to be anticipated in a device of this kind. On the other hand, the wired 33W charging works quite great, and you can get a full charge on this phone in a little over an hour if you start from zero. There is no cause for concern with regard to the charge of the battery or the duration of its use. Price of Redmi Note 12 in Bangladesh The Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 is not available in Bangladesh officially, yet. In the China market, it costs 1199 yuan or BDT 16,846. The conversion rate here is 1 Yuan = 14.05 Taka. However, the official price of Redmi Note 12 in Bangladesh may vary due to tax and other issues. Conclusion Though Note 12, like any other cheap phone, is a negotiated settlement, its design, screen, build quality, battery life, and other common features seem standard. However, its camera quality and general performance are where the users will notice the concessions in the price.

The efficiencies of iPads have significantly increased over the last several years. Nowadays, an Apple tablet is capable of doing a far wider range of tasks than it could in the past. So, many people are simply replacing their business laptops with these incredible gadgets. Let’s take a look at the key features of iPad 2022 (10th generation) and iPad Pro 2022 models. Apple iPad vs iPad Pro: A Comparative Review What are the differences between the iPad from the iPad Pro, and how can you tell which one is the better option for you? Design iPad Pro 2022 model comes in two sizes 11-inch and 12.9-inch. To be quite clear, the iPad Pro is an absolutely delightful piece of hardware. It contains a multitude of cameras. Both the front and back cameras feature depth sensors that might be utilized for augmented reality (AR) or 3D scanning. It operates really fast. The display and speakers are excellent, particularly on the model with a 12.9-inch screen. Read More: Top 10 phones coming to Bangladesh in November 2022 The iPad Pros include screens that employ Apple's ProMotion variable refresh rate technology, much like the iPhone 13 Pro and 14 Pro. These displays have a 120Hz refresh rate, which makes it incredibly easy to browse through content and use the device overall since it is so fluid. The iPad 2022 is the first iPad to fully adopt a full-screen design with narrow bezels rather than the other iPads' traditional big bezels and home buttons. This brings about a number of significant improvements for the iPad. Because currently there is no home button. The fingerprint sensor that is used for Touch ID is now integrated into the power button that is located on the top frame. Read More: vivo V25, V25e Review: Is the Price Difference Justified? No matter how you use the iPad, you won't have any trouble getting to it, and its speed and dependability will live up to your expectations. The improved design also makes room for an enhanced two-speaker landscaping system to be installed. Display Apple is able to fit a substantially bigger display into the same footprint due to the iPad's thinner bezels. The iPad 2022 has a 10.9-inch display, as opposed to the 10.2-inch display of the previous iPad versions. This means extra space for applications, games, and movies. As for the display quality, you have instantly been reminded of the iPad's rudimentary origins. The display has a resolution of 2360 x 1640. In addition, it boasts a maximum brightness of 500 nits and Apple's True Tone display technology. Read More: OPPO F21 Pro 4G Review: Special attraction for Shakib fans However, its display misses many of the luxuries seen on the Air. Specifically, the display is not laminated to the front glass, lacks an anti-reflective coating, and lacks P3 wide color gamut support. The 11-inch iPad Pro 2022 model comes with an 11-inch screen featuring a 2388-by-1668-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch (PPI). On the other hand, in the 12.9-inch iPad Pro 2022 model, you get a 2732-by-2048-pixel resolution at 264 PPI in the 12.9-inch display. Not to mention, a larger screen is always a welcome addition, as it makes working with many applications less cramped. Read More: realme C30 Review: An entry-level phone with smooth performance. iPad Pro 2022 models are blessed with Wide color display (P3) technology, True Tone Display and many more features. Camera Additionally, Apple made a number of noteworthy enhancements to the camera system included on the new iPad. It now sports a rear camera with the same 12-megapixel (F/1.8) resolution as the Air. Although it is not the greatest camera on the market, it is now capable of capturing video in 4K resolution, when the model from the previous year could only achieve a maximum of 1080p. iPad Pro has installed Wide and Ultra Wide cameras. The Wide camera features12MP a sensor with ƒ/1.8 aperture; while the Ultra Wide camera sports a 10MP sensor with ƒ/2.4 aperture, and a 125° field of view.

Performance and Software iPadOS 16 offers a wonderful user experience in the iPad Pro 2022 model. It has 64GB RAM. The internal storage ranges from 128GB to 2TB. The iPad Pro 2022 from Apple is equipped with Apple's M2 chip. The fact that this tablet utilizes the same processor as the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro with a 13-inch screen from this year makes it a strong contender for the title of most powerful tablet currently available. Apple claims that the eight-core CPU, which has four performance cores and four efficiency cores, offers an increase in performance of fifteen percent over the M1 processor. The ten-core GPU will offer visuals that are 35% quicker than the M1 GPU. Read More: Motorola Moto Edge 30 Ultra Review: Rebranded for New Market On the other hand, Apple iPad 2022 model is equipped with an A14 Bionic chip. It is run by a 6-core CPU, 4-core graphics, and 16-core Neural Engine. It has 8GB RAM with 64GB or 256GB of internal storage. Battery and Charger 10th-generation iPad is supported by a 28.6‐watt-hour rechargeable lithium‑polymer battery. To tell you the truth, you won’t be blown away by its 10-hour battery life. The limited battery life might have been due to the fact that you will need to incorporate the tablet into your workflow. At the conclusion of each of the first two days of your trip, you will have anywhere between 20 and 30 percent completed. Thankfully, that has not been the case throughout the second half of the weeklong testing that you will be doing, and you will have every reason to believe that the seven to eight hours of usage that you receive each day will continue for the foreseeable future. The implementation of USB-C as the standard port on all iPads, however, has been a blessing in disguise. Because you just need one charger to power your smartphone, laptop, wireless earphones, and your iPad. Read More: Tecno Pova 4 Pro Review: Budget gaming phone with a massive battery The iPad Pro 11-inch has a similar battery experience. While the iPad Pro 12.9 inch comes with a built-in 40.88-watt-hour rechargeable battery.
