Design & Built
10.or E is available in two colors Pure Gold and Black. Starting with the front part here we get a 5-megapixel Camera which captures some decent shots, beside it an earpiece, LED Notification which is a single color LED Notification and different sensors. We also get a front flash for taking low light selfie. Coming below we get 5.5” FHD Display, which is covered with 2.5D curved glass which gives additional looks to the phone and rests they have also added a Corning gorilla glass 3 on top of it for extra protection. Now in this price how?
Sliding little bit down here we get on Screen back keys which works quite well and has no options to swipe it from left to right or right to left.
Coming to the bottom portion of the phone here we get a Micro USB port, beside it a primary MIC and a speaker grill which is properly crafted. The speaker is quite loud too. The Phone is not having fast charging and only support normal 5 Volts at 2 Amp charging speed.
Turning to the top, we get a 3.5mm audio jack, rest nothing much which needs to be mentioned over here.
Turning to the right, here we get Volume rockers and gives quite hap-tic feedback. One thing which i found a bit odd is that the power button is at upper side and the volume rocker is at lower side which makes it but difficult to access power button on continuous basis. Accidentally we most of the time press volume down button only.
Coming to the left side of the phone we get dual Trays out of which the first tray support Nano sim only and other tray support single sim and at the same time a micro SD card that to up to 128 GB. In this price they are offering a dedicated micro SD Card Support with dual Trays.
Finally coming to the back panel of the phone here we get 13-megapixel camera, beside that a LED flash, below that a Fingerprint sensor which really works pretty fast. Below that we get 10.or branding. Overall the built of the design is made up of polycarbonate and feels like metal. Due to its built, stock Android it comes in the category of best smartphone under 9,000 INR.
10.or E comes with a 5.5-inch FHD with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The Display colors are sharp tone and watching movies, and playing games look great. It will somewhat give you the feel of using an AMOLED display. While watching a movie on to the phone give immense experience. The Sunlight legibility is also good because of its really great brightness. When we compare the brightness with other budget-oriented phones, 10.or E, has better sunlight experience. It is great that they are offering Full HD Display in this price.
Viewing Angle is good, and blacks are decent enough. While watching movies from odd angle won’t affect you in any way. Overall no complaints with the display rather i loved it.
The phone comes with Snapdragon 430 processor which features a 2/3 GB Ram. This combo makes it a decent purchase at this price. Out of 32 GB of internal storage, you get about 23 GB free after that also you can expand it to up-to 128 GB as the phone support dedicated tray for SD Card.
We get Antutu Score of 45369 and certain other scores are also decent. To low down the price they have not even remove a single sensor from the phone which are required. It is having all sensors like gyroscope, orientation sensor and all the sensors which are needed in a mid range phone.
Coming to the gaming part, we can play almost all games. In my use i have not seen any lag or frame drops even in Asphalt 8 high setting. Every game even in high end setting arr working well. After taking the device in your hand you can’t even guess the price of the phone. Everything is perfect in this price range.
Attaching the camera samples which will help you know to know more about it. We can only record videos at 720p and no Pro mode is available still the performance of the phone is fast.
10.or E is loaded with Android Nougat 7.1.2 out of the box and soon be updated to Andorid 8. With 2/3 GB RAM the UI works well as it came up with stock android. The device can handle even high multitasking on the phone due to stock android they are using. The software is loaded with negligible bloatware which we can always disable and uninstall same like other devices. The bloatware which i am talking about is for amazon app and amazon prime app nothing else is there. They have tried to optimized the UI quite well. Rest, Everything will work fine for normal users. The best part is that every game is working well on this processor with almost no lag.
Coming to battery part of the phone which is its 4000 mAh Battery which works really well. It took me 3.5 Hours to charge from 0 to 100% using its default charger. Battery usage of the device is good. It will easily going to last you more than a day because of good software optimization and small display size. Rest all what we can expect from it.
Coming to the battery performance, on high usage it will easily last you for a day and on normal usage it will easily last you for more then a day.
Overall, in this price i just loved the device.
