Review:


I got this phone after my Iphone SE broke. It was my first android phone I've used. it was pretty easy to switch from Iphone to Android. The only things that annoys me is the keyboard since the texts are a bit smaller. I found the phone handy to use and easy to fit in the pocket. It's got some pretty tough glass too. I've dropped my phone a couple times screen down and there is not a single scratch yet.


Software:


The software on this phone is good. I wouldn't give it a 10/10 though. I like this phone because you can design it however you want. It is also good compared to other phone because it doesn't have a bunch of stock apps installed on it. This makes the phone look really clean. You can install custom themes to suit you. I also find the second space useful since you can use it to bypass screen time :) Now the downside is the notifications. Every time I install a new app I need to adjust some settings in order for there to be notifications. Usually there will just be a vibration and you can't see what the message is. But this isn't a problem since you can manually activate notification in settings.


My rating: 8/10


Hardware:


The phone runs really smoothly. There isn't any lag when using the phone. Sometime chrome crashes when using it but that isn't really a problem. I find this phone great for gaming. I can run most games about 30fps. The finger print scanner is pretty accurate. It wouldn't work if your hands are too cold or they are wet. This phone also includes a 2D face unlock which is pretty accurate and fast. This phone also includes duo SIM. It is very important for people like me since I travel to Hong Kong a lot so I can use 2 SIM cards. Now here are the downsides. I often find the GPS not too accurate and it often glitches. I'm also pretty sure NFC doesn't work when your at second space. The other downside is the camera. It doesn't happen often but it will glitch sometimes. you have to expect that to happen. Some errors include that the camera doesn't pop back in, sometimes the camera doesn't pop up or it says that the camera can't close while it's already closed. But all these errors could be fixed by simply rebooting your phone.


My rating: 7/10


Camera:


Both the cameras have good quality. It's got 3 cameras. A normal one, a 48mp one and a super wide one. I prefer using Snapchat while taking photos because it makes everything look more natural. All the cameras including the front camera takes pictures and videos with great quality. There are also different type of modes like portrait and night mode which give the picture more details while taking pictures.


Would I recommend this phone?


Yes I would recommend this phone. It is a great phone to use. Most of the errors could easily be fixed with a reboot. This phone is great for all types of use. You can use it for gaming, work and technically any type of use.


Overall Recommendation: 8/10
