copenhagen72, 03 Apr 2024If you have a problems with making photos of an A4 papers, ... moreI doesn't help much. You are loosing details that way and it looks worse than on my old phone. The more I compare photos, the more I am glad I had returned it. There is something wrong with the photo processing anyway. It makes strange "halo" everywhere on lots of objects, near or far, that other phones do not do.

        I returned mine back because it couldn't even take any close shot clear and crisp. Impossible to take a picture of A4 letter that my 5YO phone is able to. With any lens. When shooting from say 40-50cm distance with main lens, it is a blurry mess and objects have strange halo around them. Every picture looked like I needed glasses or something, not pleasant to look at them.

        Other than that, the main sensor is quite good even in low light conditions and 2x zoom. Providing you don't take any close-ups that is. I liked their processing approach, no over the top de-noising and image looks softer rather over-processed mess (oil painting).

        Telephoto is great too, capable of very nice macros. Some pictures were really sick.

        Then there is an ultrawide camera. Rather useless waste of space. They should have used some normal wide lens with a bigger sensor capable of crisps close-ups. That would be a killer triple camera setup for me.

        Battery is insanely good, soc doesn't extremely heat up. The phone is fast. Camera focus fast, it takes pictures like a machine gun. Yes, the back on the asteroid black variant is slippery. Curves are nice to hold in hand. Curved screen is kind of ok I guess. At least you don't get stuck on screen protector using gestures which is nice. GSM signal is ok, GPS signal ok, no problems with bluetooth and USB file transfer fast as well.

        I really liked that phone, maybe one day, then next model...

          proUser, 19 Mar 2024Using this device from last 3 days 1) fantastic camera 2)... moreUsually battery gets a bit better with time since it "learns" your behaviour and how you use the phone. At least that was my experience on my past few phones.

            Kindly update the comparison section as many Flagships are now available including Xiaomi 14 Ultra as well as Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra.

              Using this device from last 3 days
              1) fantastic camera
              2) best and fast charging
              3) OS experience is good not best
              4) Speaker volume is low (less loud)
              5) Battery drain is faster than expected ( even high cap. battery it lasts day or less)

              I expect more battery optimization needed to utilize this high capacity battery to run at least 1.5day without worry.

              Only main cons I face is it heats early using camera/video for atleast 10-15min and battery drain is high compare to other devices. But for that fast charger is blessfull. But they need more and better thermal control

                          With the original charger, it didn't work (1 hour for 0-100% recharge). Alternative 120w charger worked (30min for 0-100%)
                          My problem now is that most apps don't show up notifications even when they are enabled for those apps. But even with that, I'm satisfied with this phone

                                Mine only shows notifications from some apps and other (majority) don't show notifications at all. IDK if it's something with OriginOS or with Android 14.

                                    This phone is a real beast!

                                    I hope one day I'll have the chance to test OxygenOS. It is unknown for me and it is the only thing keeping me away from buying this phone.

                                      Both recharged in 40min.
                                      But I'm good with that.

                                        We need a x100 pro vs x100 camera comparison.
