Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design is a premium new smartphone. Let’s take a look at what it gives you. This is one of my favourite new mobile manufacturer companies at the moment.
Main specs: 6.0 inch Display, AMOLED screen type, 1440×2880 pixels, Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.1 on top, Kirin 970 Chipset, Octa-core processor with 4x 2.4GHz Cortex-A73 and 4x 1.8GHz Cortex-A53, Mali-G72 MP12 GPU, No card slot, 256/512GB Internal storage phone and 6GB of RAM!
But the main thing that is the most amazing is how this phone comes with a main Triple camera! It features 40MP + 20MP + 8MP lens! This is super impressive I have never seen a phone with this setup in the past. The three apertures are F1.8 + F1.6 + F2.4! Of course this will boost up the price so it will only be a phone for people with wealth!
The secondary camera comes with a 24MP lens! It has a more standard F2.0 and 1080p video recording! In terms of Bluetooth it’s a bit sad this phone lacks Bluetooth 5.0 and only comes with 4.2.
The battery is pretty big as well with 4000mAh! But it’s a non-removable battery. This phone comes in 2 colour editions Black and Red. The price will be around 1600 euros. Which is like buying two iPhone 8! The USB connector is 2.0 Type C. You don’t get any 3.5mm jack which is very sad at this price range.
Not too thick phone just 8.5mm and the weight is 183 grams with IP67 certification which makes it dust and water resistant up to 1m for 30 mins. This is also a Hybrid Dual SIM phone! The fingerprint sensor is located at the rear side!
Vivo X21 is a new phone that looks very similar to the iPhone X! It has a huge display that will be a bit too much for majority of people.
Main specs: 6.28” Display, 1080×2280 pixel screen, Android 8.1 Oreo, Snapdragon 660 Chipset, Octa-core processor with 4x 2.2GHz Kryo 260 and 4x 1.8GHz Kryo 260, Adreno 512 GPU, microSD card support up to 256GB, 64/128GB Memory variant, 6GB of RAM, Dual main camera with 12MP + 5MP Lens, 12MP Secondary camera, 3.5mm earphone jack and Bluetooth 5.0 support!
In terms of OS you get a skin on top of Android that is called Funtouch OS 4.0. The display type is Super AMOLED same as Samsung usually like to use. The build is very premium with Front glass and Aluminium Body. It’s a super slim device with only 7.4mm thickness.
The non-removable battery comes with 3200mAh. One thing that is a bit sad is to see no USB Type C but only microUSB connector. But this is a mid range device in price so it’s not too bad. The colours it comes in are Black, Aurora White and Ruby Red. Another nice thing is how it has hybrid Dual SIM support. The weight is also very slim only 156 grams.
The fingerprint scanner is rear mounted as many others. The video recording function only supports 1080p not higher resolution recording so that is a bit boring.
On the top side you could see a notch installed. This thing started with the Apple iPhone X. Now other companies are starting to copy that especially Android phones. I like how the display is an all-screen display with no bezels. On the back side you can see the traffic light design that also the iPhone X comes with. But it doesn’t seem to protrude as much.
Vernee M6 is a new smartphone that comes with an iPhone like rounded design.
Main specs: 5.7 inch Display, 720×1440 pixels screen, 18:9 aspect ratio, Android 7.0 Nougat, MT6750C Chipset, Octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, ARM Mali-T860 MP2 GPU clocked at 520MHz, 4GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage, Micro SD card support up to 128GB, 4G VoLTE support, Dual SIM Dual Standby support and 3.5mm earphone port!
Front camera on Vernee M6 is having 13.0MP lens with the GC8024W sensor and 4P lens. The back camera comes with 16.0MP and the OV13855 sensor with 5P lens.
One thing that is amazing about this device is how it comes with a notification LED. But the Bluetooth edition is only 4.0. Sadly not many smartphones seems to be quick to adopt the latest Bluetooth 5.0 technology.
Other nice things in here is OTA updates, OTG support and fingerprint scanner. 3300mAh battery that is built-in. Quick charging is supported with 5V/2A. This is a very thin device with 7.65mm thickness.
The front camera comes with the famous Beauty effect. But my favourite thing is the genuine slimness. Something not many new phones have. Would love to see more phones below 6mm in thickness.
On front side below the display on Vernee M6 there is also very little dead space. So it creates a nice overall symmetry. The screen may be a bit too big for many. Would love to see more 4.3 inch devices enter the market again. But the demand still seems to be there for big screen phones.
Vernee has proven itself in the past to be able to produce many amazing low cost Android phones. These days you could spend below 200 dollars and get an amazing Android experience. A few years ago this wasn’t possible. But the cost to produce new phones are going down.
Oukitel U11 Plus is a more premium device than the other device that I talked about earlier today from the same company. This one is more in Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 zone!
Main specs: 5.7 inch Display, FHD resolution with 1080×1920 pixels screen, 2.5D curved front and with LTPS, 5 Points touch, Android 7.0 Nougat, MTK6750T Chipset, Octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, Mali T860 GPU, 4GB of RAM, 64GB Internal storage, TF card support up to 128GB, Aluminium alloy shell material build, Dual SIM Card Dual Standby and 4G data speeds!
In terms of cameras the main one is 13.0MP lens with true dual flash LED and the secondary camera also comes with 13.0MP lens but perhaps it has a lower aperture. Bluetooth edition is the older 4.0. Wish it came with Bluetooth 5.0 since it’s fairly expensive device.
Another downside with Oukitel U11 Plus is how it’s still using Micro USB 5Pin connector instead of new USB Type C! In terms of thickness it is 8.3mm. The battery packed inside has 3700mAh and probably a non removable variant. One good thing is you still get a 3.5mm earphone port! Something that many new high end Android phones lack!
The two colour editions that exist are Jet Black and Blue. Wish we could have a red Edition too. More in terms of build this phone has been built using CNC craftsmanship and the aluminium feel will make it having a more premium touch.
Oukitel U11 Plus reminds me a bit about Huawei Honor 8 and Honor 9 in the sleek back design. LTE 4G+ will truly give you amazing data speeds. The Android experience will probably close to very stock look. Not any premium DOOGEE skin on board.
One downside may be that at the front it seem to have a bit dead space below the display. Reminds me about Sony and their Xperia phones.
Oukitel U22 is a new cheap smartphone that is great for a person that is just starting out in the Android space. It cost around the same amount as a Nokia 3310 successor edition!
Main specs: 5.5″ HD IPS Display, 1280×720 pixels screen, 2 Points multi touch, Android 7.0 Nougat, MT6580A Chipset, Quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, Mali-400 MP2 GPU clocked at 200MHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB Internal storage and TF card support up to 32GB!
The front facing camera on Oukitel U22 has 5MP + 2MP lens! And the rear camera also comes with dual but it has 8.0MP + 2.0MP! Another good thing is the fingerprint ID sensor and a detachable battery with 2700mAh! Usually in the Android space you do not even get removable batteries 2018.
This phone is pretty thick with 9.6mm thickness dimensions. Another downside is that it doesn’t come with any 4G data speeds. But it support Dual SIM Dual Standby. The two colours variants that exist are Black and White.
It’s nice that it has Android 7.0 Nougat it’s not the latest Android 8.1 Oreo but still fairly new Android release. On the rear side there is a good distance between the fingerprint sensor and rear camera so you won’t confuse the two. The camera design is same as on iPhone 7 Plus.
Another thing with Oukitel U22 is that it comes with 3 capacitive touch buttons on the front below the display. Something that many other companies are removing and instead starting to use on-screen keys.
The screen have a 2.5D curve. It even comes with a metal frame which is something we usually doesn’t see on mega cheap devices like this one! Very elegant phone for the low price that you pay.
Especially they managed to make so the fingerprint sensor looked very modern.
