Preview: Nokia G20

Published

on

HMD Global announced a slew of new products – six smartphones and an audio accessory to be precise – on Thursday. The new smartphones that were launched, include the Nokia X20, Nokia X10, Nokia G20, Nokia G10, Nokia C20, and Nokia C10. The company sent us a non-retail device for a quick hands-on, and so, here’s a first look at the device.

While the X Series is being positioned as the company’s take on premium-range devices, the G series sits at the mid-range, below the X Series, and above the C Series. With the G20, Nokia wants to strike a balance between performance, features, and pricing.

In terms of design and build quality, the Nokia G20 is average. The phone has been constructed using a mix of plastic, glass, and metal. On the front, you get a 6.5-inches screen that offers an HD+ resolution. You also get an aspect ratio of 20:9, with a brightness boost that keeps the screen brighter under direct sunlight.

On the left edge of the device, you get a dual SIM tray that accepts two nano SIMs, with a dedicated area for using a microSD card. Just below the SIM tray on the left edge, you get a dedicated button for Google Assistant. On the right edge, you get the volume buttons and the power button, which doubles up as the fingerprint scanner.

On the top edge, you get the 3.5mm audio jack and a noise-cancelling microphone. On the bottom edge, you get the USB-C charging port, a second noise-cancelling microphone, and the speaker grille. The phone measures 164.9-by-76.0-by-9.2mm in dimension, and weighs 197-gms.

In terms of the hardware, the Nokia G20 is powered by the Mediatek G35 processor, running at a clock speed of 2.3GHz. You also get 4GB of RAM and you can choose between 64GB or 128GB of storage. The unit sent to us, came with 128GB of storage, which can be further expanded to up to 512GB of storage, using a microSD card.

The Nokia G20 also comes with a quad-camera setup. Now, this includes a 48MP main camera offering an aperture of f/1.79, an ultrawide lens rated at 5MP, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, you also get an 8MP sensor for all your selfies. The quad cameras support night mode, portrait mode, and OZO audio for crisp audio in video footage.

The phone is powered by a 5050mAh non-removable battery that uses a 5V2A charger. Inside the retail box, the company includes the Nokia G20 along with a bunch of accessories including a USB Type-C cable, a 10W wall charger, a “Quick Start” guide, a SIM ejector tool, a screen protector, a headset (in select markets), and a protective case (in select markets). We will be publishing an unboxing video once we receive the retail pack from Nokia to show you the contents of the retail box.

The Nokia G20 runs on the Android 11 operating system. Nokia guarantees two years of OS upgrades and three years’ worth of monthly security updates. Since the unit we received was a non-retail pack, we have not been able to run any benchmarks on the device. However, during a couple of days, we had the device with us for a hands-on, we found the phone was quite fluid in terms of user experience.

Since the Nokia G20 runs a vanilla version of the Android 11 operating system, the overall experience was quite good, without the bloat of bloatware. We will soon be receiving the retail pack of the device and we will be putting the retail unit through a series of benchmarks and imaging tests. We will report back about the real-world performance in a full-on review of the device.

The Nokia G20 is priced at AED 599 and it goes head to head with other newly launched mid-rangers we recently reviewed here on GadgetVoize.com.

Preview: ASUS ROG STRIX LC RX6800XT

Published

on

Close to the heels of AMD launching the new RX 6800 XT, ASUS launched its own ineration – the ASUS ROG STRIX LC RX 6800 XT Gaming OC. This one comes equipped with the goodness of a 240mm liquid-cooled radiator, as well as a low-noise blower on the card.

The big radiator will offer up the huge cooling potential for the chipset, allowing it to high a much higher boost clock and maintain it for big performance increases.

Meanwhile, the blower fan is there to keep the memory chips and power delivery hardware cool, but overall, that shouldn’t have to spin too much. Some of the features of this behemoth include a 1527 MHz Core Clock, a 2410 MHz Boost Clock, AIO Liquid Cooling, 240mm radiator, 2 x 120mm fans, low-noise blower fan on the card, and of course, ARGB lighting. This one is a high-end liquid cooled 6800XT card.

You also get 600mm tubing for compatibility with EATX chassis and alternative mounts, and Super Alloy Power II that includes premium alloy chokes, solid polymer capacitors, and an array of high-current power stages.

The GPU also accompanies the ASUS FanConnect II, which equips a hybrid-controlled fan header for optimal system cooling. And there’s GPU Tweak II, which provides intuitive performance tweaking, thermal controls, and system monitoring.

The ASUS ROG STRIX LC RX6800XT is a hybrid cooled graphics card, which means it uses both air and liquid cooling to keep things, well, cool. This thing is beautifully designed, but by no means is a small card.

It has clean looking hardware – one half of the card features a funky STRIX digital graffiti design on it. This is the same design seen on ASUS’ recent motherboards, gaming mouse, power supplies, cases, and so on.

When it comes to the tech specs, the 6800XT gets 72 activated CUs multiplied by 64 shader units. You also get 16GB of GDDR6 memory based on a 256-bit memory bus, which essentially translates to 512 GB/s of memory bandwidth.

The TDP listed is at 300 watts for this product. The 2250 GHz boost clock is spectacular. However, the more average game clock is listed at 2015 MHz. New in this GPU is a 128MB infinity cache and support for PCI-express 4.0.

The RX6800XT graphics card showcases an assertive black ROG design and comes with a backplate. In the I/O area, the card includes two DisplayPort 1.4 ports, one HDMI 2.1, and a USB Type-C connector.

Installing any graphics card is straightforward these days. Once the card is seated into the PC, make sure you hook up the monitor and, of course, any external power connectors like 6/8-pin or the new 12-pin PEG power connectors.

We suggest you get yourself a power supply that has these PCIe PEG connectors natively. Purchase a quality power supply, calculate/estimate your peak power consumption for the entire PC, and double that number for the power supply as your PSU is most efficient at half the load value.

So, if during gaming you consume 300W Watts on average for the entire PC, the recommended power supply would be a 600+ Watt one.

Our test bed inlcuded the following:
Processor: Intel Core i7 9700K
Motherboard: ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI APEX
PSU: ASUS ROG THOR 850W
Memory Module: GSKIL TridentZ 3200MHz CL14 2x4GB

In order to test the performance of the GPU, we put it through some tests. On the 3DMark: Night Raid the score achieved was 65493, while the graphics score was 147600. In the 3DMark: Fire Strike benchmark, the score was 31493, while the graphics score was 51956. Meanwhile, in the 3DMark: Fire Strike Ultra test, the score stood at 12321, while the graphics score stood at 12956.

In 3Dmark TimeSpy, we were able to clock a score of 15488, while the graphics card stood at 18168. In 3Dmark Port Royal test, we clocked a score of 9257. The non-OC 1K, 2K and 4K test results were as below:

For the operating temperatures, we used the FurMark 15 min Test. The results are below:

The regional pricing of the ASUS ROG STRIX LC RX6800XT hasn’t been announced yet. That being said, the card offers a higher boost clock, comes with an RGB lit 240mm AIO liquid cooler, comes built with premium components, and offers top-notch performance.

Preview: ASUS ROG Delta S Gaming Headset

Published

on

If you are into gaming, you know that your gaming PC’s or laptop’s specs is not the only thing that matters to attain awesome gameplay. Gaming accessories also matter, including, the pair of headphones you use for your gaming sessions. ASUS’ ROG range of gaming devices are known on the market for top notch quality.

So, we didn’t think twice when ASUS said it is sending across the new ROG Delta S Gaming Headset for a test drive. This latest pair of gaming headphones features the Master Quality Authenticated (MQA) technology to offer improved audio quality for gamers.

What this means is that this gaming headset is designed to offer superior audio quality for gaming enthusiasts, and comes packed with a Hi-Res ESS Quad-DAC and large, high-quality drivers, allowing you to enjoy music streamed in high resolution. The headset also offers RGB lighting and is compatible with PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and even the new Sony PlayStation 5.

The headphones also come with stereo speakers that deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience. In terms of design, the headphones offer a comfortable full-size form with ear-cups that fully enclose your ears. This offers sound isolation and hence, it won’t leak sound to your neighbors. 

The headphone weighs around 300-gms and does not come with a detachable cable, which many may find a downside, though the cable length is about 1.5 meters. The ROG Delta S can however be folders so it is easy to transport.

The overall look, feel and build quality is very good. While the headset is made of plastic, it is one of the most sturdy-feeling headsets I have come across in recent times. The stainless steel headband also contributes to the overall build quality in a good way.

You can switch between leather and velour ear-cups and you will find that both offers a good amount of comfort. The outside of the ear-cups have stellar RGB lighting, which can be toggled between Soundwave Light Mode, RGB Wave, and No Lighting Mode. These lighting modes can be toggled with a little switch on the left ear-cup.

The headphones connect to your gaming device through the USB-C port and comes with an AI Noise-Cancelling microphone. Inside the packaging that this headphone arrives in, you also get a USB-C to USB-A 2.0 cable that extends and makes your headset usable on many different platforms.

To check out the audio quality of the headsets, we used them with games and movies. As a gaming headset, the ROG Delta S focuses a lot on mids and treble. While the bass is there and if you find it not to be adequate enough, you can easily adjust it through the equaliser settings.

Overall, the audio quality offered by the ROG Delta S was exceptional – the audio sounded very detailed and natural. The mid treble is balanced and not too boosted like on other gaming headsets. The built-in quad DAC also contributed so much to gaming, since it provides extremely low background noise.

The ASUS ROG Delta S Gaming Headset is something you need to invest in if you are serious about gaming! The device isn’t available yet in the region and the local pricing hasn’t been announced yet.
