Review: HONOR X9

Published

on

HONOR launched its HONOR X Series a while ago and we had reviewed the X8, as well. This time around we have the new HONOR X9 5G. The X9 brings users a raft of innovative flagship features, a beyond exceptional experience, and extraordinary quality, all at an affordable price point.

The HONOR X9 comes packed with a 4800mAh long-lasting battery and it uses HONOR’s flagship fast charging technology, the 66W HONOR SuperCharge, to ensure you get from 0% to 50% in just 15 minutes and to 81% in just 30 mins. The HONOR X9 has also been designed with flagship-level 1.05mm super-narrow bezels, which HONOR says is 40% narrower than most smartphones in the same category.

The HONOR X9 also offers a screen-to-body ratio of 94%, thus giving you more screen real estate for an immersive entertainment experience while watching movies, indulging in gaming, and during web browsing.

The build quality and design of the HONOR X9 are quite good for a mid-range device. On the front of the device, you get a big 6.81-inches FHD+ HONOR FullView Display, that offers a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The display also offers advanced eye protection features to protect your eyes during prolonged smartphone usage.

Just above the display, you will find the 16MP front camera for all your selfie requirements. On the right edge of the device, you get the volume rockers and the power button which also doubles up as a fingerprint scanner. On the top edge, you get the speaker grille and a noise-cancelling microphone. On the bottom edge, you get the USB Type-C port, the dual SIM slot, speaker grille, and another noise-cancelling microphone.

At the rear, you will find the triple camera setup that includes the 48MP main camera, 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP bokeh camera. In terms of photography, you get lots of modes such as aperture, night, portrait, panorama, HDR, super macro and so on. In terms of videography, the HONOR X9 can shoot videos at 1080, and supports Dual View recording and micro movie production, through the Story mode.

Under the hood, the HONOR X9 5G is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 5G Mobile Platform. You also get 8GB of RAM and a choice of either 128GB or 256GB of storage capacity. The HONOR X9 also supports the company’s RAM Turbo Technology that adds 2GB of RAM to the already existing 8GB, virtually, thus extending the total RAM capacity to 10GB. This is particularly useful when playing graphically demanding games and performing memory-intensive tasks.

The HONOR X9 also comes packed with a 4800mAh battery that in our real-world tests, offered more than a day’s worth of battery life. If you do run out of juice, though, you can rely on the 66W HONOR SuperCharge to quickly charge your X9 in minutes.

The overall performance of the HONOR X9 was very good, thanks to its solid specs. HONOR’s RAM Turbo further enhances the overall performance by converting a small portion of Read-Only Memory (ROM) into RAM, thus boosting efficiency. The RAM Turbo technology is particularly useful since it stops background processes from getting killed when you switch apps, ensuring you can make a video call or write a message when you are gaming or watching a movie. Apps will still be running in the background and waiting for you to pick up exactly where you left off.

Photography and videography features also perform on point, on the new HONOR X9. It does not matter whether you shoot photos or videos under good or low light conditions. The results are always consistent.

The HONOR X9 is priced at AED 1099 for the 8GB+128GB variant, while the 8GB+256GB variant is priced at AED 1199. The HONOR X9 is also the most advanced 5G smartphone in this price range. For such an affordable price point, you also get a smartphone that offers a good design and build quality, very good internals, HONOR’s RAM Turbo for enhanced performance, HONOR’s 66W SuperCharge, and very good photography and videography skills.

Price: AED 1099 (8GB+128GB), AED 1199 (8GB+256GB)

Review: Amazon Echo Show 10

Published

on

The Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd Gen) is the company’s new smart display and speaker, powered by the Alexa voice assistant. The Echo Show 10 comes packed with a combination of voice, audio, and display-based smart features. On the front of the device, you get a 10.1-inch display, that offers a resolution of 1280×800 pixels. You also get motion features that allow the screen to automatically turn to face you and follow your gaze when visual content is being viewed on the screen.

On the right edge, just above the display, you will find a 13MP camera with a built-in privacy cover and auto-framing features. The Echo Show 10 also comes with a speaker system that includes two 1-inch tweeters and a 3-inch woofer. The speaker is built into the base of the device, while the screen attaches separately to the top of the base. You will also find the buttons for volume and muting the microphones at the top of the screen.

The footprint of the Echo Show 10 isn’t much larger than other smart speakers on the market with a 10-inch display. The base of the device measures 6.7-inches in diameter, while its screen is 9.9-by-9-inches. However, it does need a lot more room to swivel around. When you switch the device on, it automatically calculates the space required for it to swivel around and recommends placements.

Amazon says you need to have a 15-by-10-inch area for the Echo Show 10 to rotate. While the Echo Show can very silently rotate 360 degrees, you do have to manually tilt its display to angle it the way you want. The base portion of the Amazon Echo Show 10 is covered in a smart speaker fabric, which is available in either charcoal or glacier white options. The variant we received for this review was the glacier white one.

Inside the box, you get the Amazon Echo Show 10, along with the power adapter and the rotation footprint template. Setting it up is a breeze. All you need to do is download the Amazon Alexa App, follow the onscreen instructions and you will be done in minutes.

Talking about motion, Amazon offers a wide range of options through the Echo Show 10’s settings. You can either trim down the turning radius of the display, set an exact idle position, or even disable motion completely. You can even restrict motion to “During Select Activities” such as calling, watching videos, or displaying recipes. If you do select “During All Activities”, the Echo Show 10 will track you for music playback, asking questions, or other interactions with Alexa.

A Zigbee hub is also built into the Echo Show 10, which allows you to set it up easily with other smart home products. To wake the Echo Show 10 up, all you need to do is use a wake word such as “Alexa”, “Amazon” or “Computer”. The Echo Show 10 will get into action and then turn to face you. As long as you’re in its field of view and range of motion, it will keep turning as you walk around the room, interacting with it.

One of the features I loved about the Amazon Echo Show 10, is the option of using it as a smart home camera. With Home Monitoring enabled in the display’s settings, anyone in your household can view the camera’s live feed from their Alexa app, as long as the camera’s shutter isn’t closed. You can also control the Echo Show 10’s motion remotely, by sliding your finger across the app’s live feed in the direction you’d like the display to face.

You can even make audio or video calls using the Alexa app. In addition, it also supports calls through Skype, Zoom, and so on. I was impressed by the overall audio quality, both during online calls, listening to music, and watching movies. Its dual one-inch tweeters and three-inch subwoofer combined to produce music that sounded very crisp, with brilliant mids and highs.

The Echo Show 10’s app and services ecosystem includes Prime Video, Netflix, Careem, Spotify, Anghami, and more. The Echo Show 10 can also be used as an Alexa Guard sensor. What this feature does is that if it hears a smoke or CO2 alarm or hears glass breaking, for instance, it will send an alert to your smartphone. Alexa Guard can also be connected to DIY home security systems, thus adding an extra layer of protection.

The way the overall Alexa ecosystem has developed over the past couple of years, I believe devices such as the Amazon Echo Show 10 will be more than just a smart display and speaker. For a price of AED 1099, you get a very capable smart display and speaker that also offers a wide range of features such as online calling, entertainment, security and so much more.

Video Review of the POCO F4 GT in the UAE

Published

on

POCO’s new F4 GT is a gaming smartphone that packs in top-notch specs at a pocket-friendly price. The F4 GT is a beautiful-looking smartphone that has been built using premium material. On the front of the device, you get a 6.67-inch FHD+ 120Hz OLED panel that brings in a good balance of resolution, refresh rate, and battery life.

The phone offers a choice between either 60Hz or 120Hz refresh rate, which can be chosen from the Settings menu. Or you can just leave it on Auto for the device to dynamically change it based on the content being consumed.

On the left edge of the device, you get the volume rockers, a microphone, and the dual SIM slot. On the right edge, you get the power button that also doubles up as a fingerprint scanner. You also get a couple of shoulder magnetic pop-up triggers, which are aimed at gamers, since these can be used as gaming controllers. POCO has included a pair of sliding buttons that can be used to pop the triggers out and retract them.

On the top edge, you get the IR blaster, another microphone, and the speaker grille. On the bottom edge, is where you will find the USB Type-C port, a microphone, and the speaker grille. The POCO F4 GT comes with a quad-speaker setup and support for Dolby Atmos. The phone runs on the Android 12 operating system with MIUI 13.0.2 running on top of it.

Inside the box, you get the POCO F4 GT, a clear case, a SIM ejector tool, a Type-C to 3.5mm audio jack adapter, a 120W hyper charger, and the L-shaped USB Type-C cable, designed with gamers in mind. Under the hood, the phone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, coupled with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage space. The POCO F4 GT also supports virtual memory extension by 3GB for a smoother gaming experience. The POCO F4 GT is cooled using the LiquidCool Technology 3.0.

The phone is available in three different colours – Stealth Black, Knight Silver, and Cyber Yellow. The one we received for this review is the Knight Silver variant. The phone measures just 8.5mm in thickness and weighs around 210-gms. The phone’s overall form factor is pretty nice and feels nice in the hands. The phone is also protected by a glass on the back and Gorilla Glass Victus on the display.

On the front, just above the display, you get a 20MP camera offering an aperture of f/2.4. On the rear, you get a triple camera setup. Now, this includes a 64MP wide-angle main camera with an aperture of f/1.9, an 8MP ultrawide camera with an aperture of f/2.2, and a 2MP macro lens with an aperture of f/2.4.

The POCO F4 GT comes with a 4700mAh battery, which in our tests offered a battery life of almost a day before it needed recharging. However, thanks to the 120W hyper charger bundled inside the box, the POCO F4 GT can be fully charged in about 18 minutes, which is insane!

Thanks to its strong internals, we saw brisk performance while launching apps, using the camera, and multitasking. This means you won’t have any issues performing daily smartphone tasks. Gaming performance was very fluid, too was very snappy too, as games such as Dead Trigger 2, Genshin Impact, and so on, delivered a very smooth experience. The popup triggers were really useful during the gaming sessions. You can also map these triggers to on-screen virtual buttons through the Game Turbo side menu, for PUBG, emulators, and other games.

The cameras also performed really well. Images and videos shot under good lighting conditions turned out pretty well. Even under low light conditions, the POCO F4 GT held its ground.

You get loads of modes, including clone mode, steady video mode (cropping in from the main camera), long exposure suite, dual video option, movie effects mode, and a vlog mode. All of these modes are in there, keeping content creators in mind.

For a price of AED 2499, the POCO F4GT offers a great gaming smartphone at an attractive price point. You get a flagship chipset, excellent internal specs, retractable shoulder triggers for gaming, and brilliant 120W hyper charging. The POCO F4 GT thus comes across as highly recommended.
