Oppo K10 Review: How Much Competition Will It Give in the Budget?

Published

NDTV Gadgets 360 Hindi
In the last few years, Oppo has launched budget series K smartphones in China. Now the company has brought this series to India, which started with the Oppo K10. Some of the highlights of the phone are the IP54 rating, scratch resistant design and some improvements to the camera to protect against dust and water. That being said, the Oppo K10 comes with medium specifications in India.

The smartphone market is flooded with phones in the 20,000 range, which include 5G phones, high-definition cameras, super-fast charging, stereo speakers and even IP ratings. Will the Oppo K10 be able to survive this race? Let’s know.

Oppo K10 price India

The price of the 6 GB RAM version of the Oppo K10 in India is Rs 14,990. Its version with 8 GB of RAM costs 16,990 Rs. 128 GB of memory is provided in both versions. The phone is available in Black Carbon and Blue Flame color options.

Oppo K10 design

Although it is low-budget, Oppo has made the look of this phone quite attractive in terms of this price segment. I really liked the bright and dynamic look of the blue color. The frame of the phone has a matte finish, and the back panel also has the same element in most parts. Its smooth texture does not allow easy passage of fingerprints. I also tried to scratch the back panel with my fingernail, as Oppo claims, but there were no marks on it. Even without the case, it probably won’t cause you any problems.

Its rectangular camera module resembles the Oppo A76, but has a separate bright area around the camera’s protrusion. Some things like “Super Performance” and “10-K” are written here. Oppo says this is only part of the design of the phone, while initially I thought it was related to the name of the phone.

The headphone jack is given at the bottom of the Oppo K10. There is also a speaker, but the headset is used for stereo sound. The fingerprint sensor is given in the power button.

The phone features a 6.59-inch LCD display with Full HD + (2412×1080 pixels) resolution and 90Hz refresh rate. This is a pretty standard looking panel. The brightness and colors are very good. There is a cutout for the selfie camera, which looks quite modern. You will see thick frames around the display.

disgusting

The Oppo K10 case comes with a transparent case and a 33W SuperVOOC charger, along with several other accessories. The quality of the case is quite good, it provides protection of the display everywhere. It also protects the sides and ports of the rear camera. The surface of the phone is quite smooth, so this case prevents the phone from slipping in your hand.

Oppo K10 specifications and Software

The IP54 rating given in the Oppo K10 is one of its special features, as the IP53 rating is seen in other competitors in this price range. As for dust protection, it will work like other smartphones, but in terms of water protection it should be better.

The company used a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor in it. It does not support 5G connectivity, but it is quite powerful. You will also find this processor in phones such as Realme 9i and Redmi Note 11. In addition, the phone has features such as dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, GPS and FM radio. Its battery capacity is 5000 mAh. With 33W fast charging it charges very fast. There is also a special microSD card slot in the SIM card tray. Supports storage up to 1TB.

disgusting

The Oppo K10 smartphone comes with Android 11 based ColorOS 11.1. There are many pre-installed applications in the phone, but most of them can also be removed. Some applications provided by Oppo, such as Theme Store and Game Space, sometimes send spam notifications. Oppo has not promised updates for a long time. Therefore, it is not possible to say whether there will be any update in it even after Android 12.

Oppo K10 performance and battery life

The 6GB version of the Oppo K10 I tested performed very well during the review. The phone was very fast in normal use and the fingerprint sensor was never damaged. There is also facial recognition, which works well even in low light. The K10 also comes with a RAM expansion feature that is set to 2GB by default. But I didn’t feel the need to increase it. By the way, it can also be expanded up to 5GB.

disgusting

I enjoyed watching and listening to videos with the phone display and speakers. But the left and right channels are not well balanced. The main speaker sounds much louder than the headset, but is better than no stereo sound. The display can be read comfortably even in direct sunlight.

The gaming performance of the phone is quite good. However, most heavy games like Asphalt 9: Legends and Call of Duty Mobile did not get the best experience. The visuals were a little disappointing. Then, after rotating the “Very High” chart, the Call of Duty’s visualization improved slightly. Most of the advanced graphics settings were not available.
In terms of battery life, the Oppo K10 performed well. With one charge I managed to use the phone for almost two days. The phone also performed well in our HD video cycle and lasted about 15 hours. Not the best, but it’s pretty good. The battery can be charged quickly. The phone is fully charged in about an hour.

Oppo K10 cameras

The Oppo K10 has a 50-megapixel main camera, as well as depth and macro shooting. You don’t get an ultra-wide camera, which can be frustrating. I would prefer an ultra-wide camera rather than the other two 2-megapixel cameras on the phone. This is not just the case with the K10. Recently, the same was observed in Realme 9 5G, when the ultra-wide camera was missing from the phone. There is a 16-megapixel selfie camera on the front.

The camera app seems to be standard, similar to what is seen on the latest Oppo phones. There are some features in this phone that I haven’t seen before. One of them is the AI ​​Palette function. You will find it in the photo gallery edit menu. This allows you to apply a different color tone to the photo. This is very useful for those who like to edit more with their photos. Apart from that, there is an AI Re-Touch slider, which can be used to adjust the level of beautification of people’s faces in photos and videos. But it only works in the rear camera. The phone also has the Oppo Bokeh Flare Portrait filter, which we saw in the Oppo Reno series.

The main camera was able to take good looking photos in good light. The Oppo K10 struggles a bit with exposure to direct sunlight or light backlighting. However, the landscape photos were good. Close-ups taken outdoors were also good. The macro camera did not impress with its quality.

The colors were good for landscape photos in low light, but there were no details. It had a flowering effect when taking pictures in front of a light source, which is fixed after turning on the night mode. However, even then the details did not make much difference. Close-ups taken in low light were also good.

Outdoor selfies were good. The camera recorded them at a full 16 megapixels. Edge recognition was not very good in portrait photos. The low-light selfies were medium and lacking in detail.

The Oppo K10 smartphone can only record videos up to 1080p. You will not get stabilization in this. In addition, there is no separate stabilization mode, even if you keep the resolution up to 720p. In terms of quality, the videos were recorded, usable in daylight, but not at night.

Sentence

The Oppo K10 is very similar to the recently released Oppo A96 in terms of design and specifications. Thanks to the stereo speakers, macro camera and the degree of IP54 in the phone, it looks more profitable. The phone’s battery life is pretty good. You’ll love its fast loading, captivating display and overall performance. The price of the phone is also good, but keep in mind that 5G options are available on the market at the same price. For example, the Poco M4 Pro 5G comes as a good option that has an IP53 rating. The Redmi Note 10S is a bit old, but still a good phone at the same price as the K10.

The biggest weakness of the Oppo K10 is its poor video recording performance and lack of an ultra-wide camera. If you are not very interested in photography or video, then this may be a good option for you. The base version of the Oppo K10 gives the best value.

Published

NDTV Gadgets 360 Hindi
iQoo has launched the Neo series in India along with the Neo 6. In this tough competitive segment under Rs 30k, the company has launched the phone with full gear. It carries the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chip, offers 80W fast charging and sports a 120Hz AMOLED display. The charging speed given by the company in this price range is really commendable. It is rare in this segment. But do all these features make the iQoo Neo 6 a phone that can’t be beat? My first impressions of the phone were positive and now it’s time to find out if it’s as good as it looks or not.

iQOO Neo 6 Price in India

The iQoo Neo 6 is priced at Rs 29,999 in India, which comes with the 8GB RAM and 128GB storage model. Its top model comes with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage, which costs Rs 33,999. The iQoo Neo 6 can be purchased in Dark Nova and Cyber ​​​​​​​​Rays colors.

iku neo 6 design

The iQoo Neo 6 phone is a rebranded model of the iQoo Neo 6 SE that was launched in China earlier this year. Neo 6 is a large smartphone in terms of dimensions and weighs 190 grams. The phone has a 6.62-inch AMOLED display with a punch-hole design at the top for the selfie camera. Display bezels are thin. The frame of the phone is made of plastic and is kept flat on top and bottom.

iQoo has added an IR (infrared) emitter that sits near the secondary microphone on the top. At the bottom there is a slot for a USB Type C port, a speaker and a SIM tray. The back panel is made of plastic with curved sides. The phone is quite comfortable to hold. Its right side is narrow and carries a thin power button and volume rocker.

The dark new color of the phone looks quite elegant. It has a gradient finish that shows a mixed shade of dark blue and bright blue. If you want a flashier phone, then you can also check out its Cyber ​​​​Rage variant. The phone’s camera module will grab your attention. It has a two-tiered design on which the Neo branding is placed, which is seen separately.

The company has also provided a transparent case inside the phone box. The back panel has a matte finish, so fingerprints don’t fall off so easily. You also get a USB Type C to 3.5mm audio adapter, which is a good thing.

iQoo Neo 6 Specifications and Software

Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC is provided in iQoo Neo 6 which is the most powerful processor for this price range. The Mi 11X competes directly with this phone, which has a similar chip. iQoo says it has included a liquid cooling system in the phone to keep the processor cool.

The Neo 6 has a Full HD Plus E4 AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It has a 360Hz touch sample rate that can go up to 1200Hz in some games. The display is also HDR10+ certified and its brightness is 800 nits. iQoo has also provided stereo speakers in the Neo 6, but the phone does not have an IP rating.

This iQoo phone supports Bluetooth 5.2, dual-band Wi-Fi, four 5G bands, dual 4G VoLTE and five satellite navigation systems. You don’t get NFC in this. iQoo Neo 6 has a 4700mAh battery and supports up to 80W fast charging. You also get a compatible charger in the box.

Talking about the software, it runs on Funtouch OS 12 which is based on Android 12. The company has promised two years of Android updates and 3 years of security updates with the phone. Its user interface is almost similar to Vivo X80 which I reviewed recently. Too bad I have the same experience with bloated software in this as well. Some applications may be uninstalled. The browser keeps sending spam notifications throughout the day which is quite annoying.

iQoo Neo 6 performance and battery life

iQoo Neo 6 has a powerful processor and there is no lag in the phone even with prolonged use. I had its 12GB variant on which I could multitask, switching between apps very comfortably. I didn’t see any apps reloading at any point. The phone has an extended RAM feature and can use up to 4GB of system memory as RAM.

I enjoyed watching videos on the phone’s AMOLED display. Stereo speakers make the experience even better. The refresh rate is high, so scrolling is smooth in apps and menus. The company has set the Smart Switch refresh rate as the default. It runs at 120Hz most of the time at this setting.

iqoo

iQoo Neo 6 has an in-display fingerprint scanner which is quite reliable and never gets damaged during use. FaceUnlock also works in a similar way. The phone scored well in benchmarks. Its AnTuTu score is higher than the OnePlus Nord 2 with 729,331 points. In Geekbench 5, it scored 983 and 3074 points in single and multi-core. In the GFXBench graph, it scored 50fps in the Car Chase test. Users who want good performance, this phone will not disappoint in terms of results.

I played Call of Duty: Mobile on it, which by default was running on very high graphics and had the frame rate set to high by default. I played the game for 20 minutes in which the battery dropped by 5%. The phone didn’t heat up, which explains its liquid cooling capability.

I loved the battery performance of this phone and it lasted comfortably for one and a half days. In the HD video cycle test, the phone lasted 21 hours and 17 minutes, which is quite impressive. Its 80W fast charger charged the phone 83% in 30 minutes and the phone was fully charged within 50 minutes.

iQOO Neo 6K camera

The iQoo Neo 6 features a triple camera setup that includes a 64-megapixel primary lens with OIS, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens with a 116-degree field of view, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. For selfies, there is a 16-megapixel camera. The camera app is very easy to use and looks similar to the Vivo X80 app. The main camera takes 16-megapixel photos by default, but you can click full-resolution photos if needed.

His daylight landscape photos were accompanied by detail and subjects were easily recognizable even from a distance. Words written on distant buildings can also be read. AI optimization is available in the phone which improves the contrast in the output. The ultra-wide camera has a wider field of view and gets the same color profile as the main camera.

The phone takes close-up photos with clear and full details. This creates a natural bokeh effect between the background and the subject. Edge detection was good in portrait mode. The macro camera also captured extremely close-up shots.

The phone proved to be very fast when shooting a low-light scene, for which it held the shutter open for a long time. Thanks to this, the image was captured with a clear and detailed picture. In very dark areas, the phone itself suggested switching to night mode.

The phone’s sensor captures the selfie in full resolution. The app adds a beautification filter by default, but it can also be adjusted or disabled if needed. In daylight, the skin tone is accurate to the photo. In low light, the screen flash is activated automatically for better results. Edge detection was good in selfies taken in portrait mode and the level of background blur was also adequate.

Its primary rear camera can shoot 4K video at 60 frames per second. Its selfie camera can also shoot videos at this resolution and frame rate, which is rare. Footage was fairly stable in daylight, but motion in low light was a bit shaky. The camera app has a dual video mode so that the main and selfie cameras can record videos at the same time.

our solution

If you are looking for a 30k budget smartphone then you can keep this phone high on your list. The phone’s performance is pretty good, as you’d expect from a device with a Qualcomm chip. The promise of Android and security updates makes it future proof. In my opinion, its base 8GB variant seems better value for money.

I don’t have many complaints about it other than the pre-installed bloatware on the phone. If you pick up the phone for video recording purposes, then be aware that it doesn’t perform as well in low light.

If you want pure software, you can look at the Motorola Edge 30. If you can’t compromise on performance, go for the Mi 11X and OnePlus Nord 2, which are good alternatives in the same price range.
