Powering this beast, we have 6000mah battery with 30W charging support that can last you 2 days with ease. This phone doesnt support any wireless charging.

The device looks more refined from previous generation. We have a gorilla glass 3 at the back with a very small slit for heat dissipation. There’s no headphone jack sadly but you do get a 2nd USB C slot, through which you can connect your earphones and other smart accessories.

You also get 3 cameras at the back, primary 64MP IMX 686 camera, 13MP ultra wide and 5MP macro lens.
The main camera sensor is capable enough to compete with the likes of OnePlus 8, NORD and Poco F2 Pro. It wont be as good as the iPhone’s or OnePlus 8 pro but seriously, it won’t disappoint you at all.

You get 2 triggers each at top and bottom right side and you can swipe to add 2 more. You get this X-mode which gives you peak performance consistently.

Verdict


The pricing is really good for indian market in particular, because it was launched at €999 in Europe and the base variant doesn’t even come with SD865+ chip but the normal SD865.

This will compete with Mi 10 and OnePlus 8 Pro at that price. And might surely not be an all-rounder but whatever it does, it does it really good.
And yes it is a bit more expensive than Rog 2 but that is due to the increased taxes, 5G support and SD865+ being a really expensive chip. But it actually performs for the price it asks for.
