This Vivo smartphone provides the privacy features of Android 12. Small audio and video indicators appear in the notification area when the phone’s microphone or camera is used. In addition to all this, it includes some Funtouch widgets inspired by Origin OS. The notification tray and quick settings menu don’t look like a Google Pixel running on standard Android. It doesn’t have the powerful search feature in the app drawer, but the notification history compensates for it, and you can use it by scrolling the notification bar to the bottom (you need to activate it first by going to Settings).
The company has added a new Game Space app to the phone, but it doesn’t do much and only tells you what games are on your phone and how long you’ve been playing them.
The Vivo V23 Pro performed as expected in the standard benchmark test. It scored 950 and 3216, respectively, in Geekbench’s single-core and multi-core tests. At the same time, he scored 6,24,567 points on AnTuTu. This rating is obviously on par with the rating of the mid-range smartphone and for the same price range.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC found in the phone is lower than the CPU score.
The gaming performance of the phone was good. This phone also heats up while playing games like Call of Duty: Mobile and Asphalt 9: Legends at the highest settings. However, it handles long gaming sessions well without showing any impact on performance. Asphalt 9: Legends runs smoothly at 60 frames per second, but Call of Duty isn’t much fun, as its touch sensitivity didn’t help me with my goal of moving fast and hitting enemies during gameplay. I lost several tournaments due to this slight delay in the reaction to the touch. Even after reducing the quality of the graphics to the lowest level, it does not lag behind the phone.
Vivo V23 Pro has a speaker that sounds quite loud, but at high volume the sound feels cracked. Stereo sound is often found in phones in this price range, which is missing in this phone. To balance the sound, the phone had to have a stereo speaker setting.
The AMOLED panel of the phone is good. It is bright enough and the colors are saturated, but when viewed in direct sunlight, the colors look a little pale. A refresh rate of 90 Hz is sufficient, but many of its competitors receive a higher refresh rate than this. Its curved edge makes the panel special. They don’t look much different in everyday use, but the average slot size of the phone looks a little different, as most Android phones these days (below and above this price range) get a hole punch, which gives clean display, while taking up less space.
Even after being thin, the phone’s battery life is very affected and the phone provides a decent battery backup. The phone lasted 12 hours and 7 minutes in our HD video loop test, which is slightly below average. Under normal use, the phone lasts all day on a single charge, but can not be called the best in this segment. Consumers who want more battery power will have to look for another option. The phone charges quickly with a 44W fast charger. It charges to 65 percent in 30 minutes and fully charges in one hour.
Vivo V23 Pro cameras
The specifications of the Vivo V23 Pro camera are quite attractive. Both front and rear cameras can record 4K at 60 frames per second. The front camera also has HDR video recording and two LED flashes. The phone has a total of three rear cameras and two front. Its main rear camera is 108 megapixels, the second camera is 8 megapixels with an ultra wide angle lens, and the third lens is 2 megapixels for macro shooting.
The main camera in the front camera is 50 megapixels, which comes with autofocus. The second camera is an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, so group selfies can be taken easily. The camera interface is well tuned and all the necessary settings are quickly available. For this purpose, there is a menu at the top left (when the phone is upright), in which the settings can be changed easily. It’s worth noting here that special video features like Steadiface and Super Night can only record 1080p at 30 frames per second. HDR video is also limited to 1080p and 30 frames per second for 4K. While 1080p recording is limited to 60 frames per second in super stabilization mode.
Photos taken with the 108MP camera were saved at 12MP. The saturation was high in daylight shots, but the dynamic range and detail were good. The photos taken with the ultra wide angle camera were below average in terms of detail. Only photos taken in daylight could be used.
The 50-megapixel selfie camera also saved the photo in 12-megapixel. The selfies, taken in daylight, were sharp and clear and had a good dynamic range. It also separates the background from the subject very well. Edge recognition and more detail were excellent in portrait mode. The same is observed in the portrait mode of the rear camera. The photos from the ultra-wide selfie camera were also excellent and were much better than the ultra-wide rear camera. The 2-megapixel macro camera was very useful when taking close-up photos, but the quality was average.
In low light, the main rear camera took decent pictures with decent detail and dynamic range. Night shots were also better. Objects look sharp, but in contrast mode the photo looks slightly artificial. There were some photos where I noticed that the accents were more exposed around street lamps or other light sources. The photos taken with the ultra wide angle camera in night mode looked good on the phone’s display, but the details were not much on the monitor screen.
Selfies taken in low light were sharp and the details were better with the flash of the projector than with the flash on the screen. However, the quality of the photo cannot be assessed above average in both ways. The night mode didn’t help either. In most cases, the main selfie camera struggled to focus even after the flash was turned on.
Speaking of the video, there was a slight disappointment here as well. The company paid a lot of attention to the additional features, but left the main features behind. The best video quality in the phone was found when shooting 4K videos at 30 frames per second. No details were found in 1080p video recording in daylight. Stabilization was very good at 1080p, but nowhere was seen when recording 4K video at 60 frames per second.
The phone has Ultra Stabilization mode, which completely stabilizes the video, but its resolution is limited to 1080p at 60 frames per second. As I took selfie videos in all daylight resolutions, the background became overexposed. In HDR mode, the subject and background were clearly visible, but the exposure was high and the details below average. Vivo has introduced a stabilization feature called Steadiface, which makes shots smooth even in daylight and low light.
When shooting videos in low light with the selfie camera, the shots came out quite grainy. The Super Night video mode helped narrow it down a bit, but the frame rate went wrong. Details were not found when shooting the video in 1080p. The videos, shot at 60 frames per second, were recorded quite dark and the stabilization was also not very good. There was a slight reduction in the smoothness of the video during operation. There was a problem with video stability, even when the resolution was reduced to 4K. The 4K frames at 60 frames per second were quite dark and the videos trembled even when panning. The videos looked slightly blurry and pale in ultra stabilization mode.
This phone is for those users who want a slim and light smartphone or want to enjoy the latest Android smartphone. Its color change panel is quite different. This phone is one of the few smartphones available in this segment, which offers a display with curved edges. However, for users who want gaming performance and great battery life, this phone does not meet the test.
The competition for the Vivo V23 Pro is very tough. Having tested the Realme GT and iQoo 7 Legend in our reviews, I can confidently say that iQoo has the best camera of them all. In addition, there are many more smartphones on the market, such as the OnePlus 9R, Xiaomi Mi 11X Pro and the recently released Xiaomi 11T Pro, which give better gaming performance than the Vivo V23 Pro. All of these phones come with stereo speakers and an AMOLED display that includes a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. The Mi 11X Pro also receives an IP53 rating.
The photos taken with the Vivo V23 Pro camera are very impressive, but the video recording needs a lot of improvements. This smartphone turns out to be better than the V20 Pro in many ways, but it can’t be called perfect. Its high price makes the competition harder for it, as it has to compete with first-class smartphones in this range, which perform better than that.

According to a report by 91Mobiles, a new OnePlus smartphone is likely to be launched in India soon. The smartphone has been spotted with model number CPH2413 as approved in the BIS India certification database. According to an earlier report by 91Mobiles, a new OnePlus smartphone is likely to be launched in India soon. The smartphone has been spotted with model number CPH2413 as approved in the BIS India certification database. A previous report suggested the same model number for the OnePlus 10RT.
OnePlus 10RT expected specifications
A report by 91Mobiles has shared some of the specifications of the OnePlus 10RT, citing tipster Mukul Sharma. For color options, this smartphone can be available in black and green color options. As a display, it can get an AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. This triple rear camera setup is expected to come as a camera setup.

iQoo Neo 6 Review: A Powerful Phone at a Reasonable Price!
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 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.
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.
Nokia G11 Plus budget Android smartphone introduced with 50MP camera
HMD Global introduced its budget Android smartphone to the market a few months ago under the name Nokia G11. The company has sold millions of smartphones so far. Now the company has announced the new model of this smartphone, Nokia G11 Plus. However, the addition of the Plus to this Nokia smartphone isn’t really an upgrade over the original model when it comes to specs.
