ZTE’s Premium Gaming Phone In Mid 2023 Review: ZTE Nubia Red Magic 8S Pro

The RedMagic 8 Pro impressed  us at the end of last year with its incredible performance, long battery life, and sleek new appearance. Now that its replacement has appeared, we left wondering why it even existed in the first place because it has a comparable design and the same CPU at its heart. When it first came out, the 8 Pro was the world’s fastest gaming phone, but it has since slipped from the top rank. The 8S Pro is attempting to retake that first place with an upgraded cooling system and a specially overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. The RedMagic 8S Pro maintains the previous generation’s squared-off, sharp-cornered appearance. The button, port, and vent positions, as well as the size, shape, and weight, are almost similar. The choices for gloss and hue, however, are novel. It has a rather understated appearance by the standards of gaming phones, but the light show starts when you launch a game. Red, blue, green, and yellow LEDs illuminate the fan when it activates, and it is visible via a transparent ring on the rear panel. This caught us off guard since when it’s off, all that can be seen is an engraved pattern. This effect is extremely nice. Of course, you can turn off the entire light display, including the fan LEDs, if you don’t like it. Personally, we believe the lighting looks nice and that it’s a good idea to have the LEDs light up when there is an unread notice present. In comparison to the RedMagic 8 Pro, little appears to have changed in terms of the display. It was already one of the most amazing displays available, and it continues to impress us with this latest model, so that’s not a bad thing. It offers a 400ppi resolution, a dense output of 1300nits, and a steady refresh rate of 120Hz. It benefits from DC dimming to lessen flicker and eye strain and is accurate, covering 100% of the DCI-P3 wide gamut.

This phone uses the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, as we indicated in the introduction, but it has a substantial overclock that should put it ahead of the competition. According to RedMagic, the 8 Gen 2 performs 5.7% quicker on the GPU and 2.5% faster on the CPU. Alongside it is the company’s proprietary Red Core 2 processor. All the additional gaming features, including audio EQ, fan control, haptic feedback, and RGB lighting effects, are handled by this second processor. The idea is that the Red Core 2 will handle the ancillary jobs so that the SoC may concentrate on pure performance. RedMagic OS 8.0, which is based on Android 13, is used by the RedMagic 8S Pro. It has a similar appearance and feel to earlier RedMagic skins, so it doesn’t go too far from pure Android and has less bloatware. This model doesn’t come with the default home screen widgets, so it looks much cleaner right out of the box. However, you may put most of them back if you find them useful. There isn’t much to explore because the cameras are the same as on the prior phone. The highlight is the primary camera, which uses the tried-and-true Samsung GN5 sensor and produces decent pictures, especially in natural light. The HDR effect and color processing, however, aren’t as good on RedMagic’s cameras as they are on those from more well-known brands. However, the primary camera is certainly enough for casual users. It performs better than we expected in low light, although you must be cautious of motion blur. You’ll also need to keep in mind to disable the watermark, which is still annoyingly enabled by default. In most cases, it is recommended to avoid using the ultra-wide and macro settings. The selfie camera in the display is the same. Although it’s a great piece of technology, the selfies produced by it are really unattractive because to the harsh sharpening effect that was used to make up for the too-soft image.

At this point, Nubia has a ton of expertise with gaming phones, and it shows. The OEM is skilled at producing a fantastic gaming phone with little extras. The new 8S Pro is a good gaming option despite its faults including a lackluster camera experience, a poorly translated user interface, and a lack of HDR support. Even if cooling might have been improved, we really enjoy the design that was carried over from the 8 Pro. The cooling system on the 8S Pro is unquestionably among the best we’ve tested, if not the greatest. Long gaming sessions shouldn’t be a problem because the 8S Pro has no trouble handling continuous and demanding workloads. Given that the cell needs to power the overclocked Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the display and battery life are amazing, to say the least. The gaming-specific features are also, as usual, pleasant and smart for the most part. Owners of RedMagic 8 Pro shouldn’t upgrade to this, it’s just too similar. But for everyone else, it’s only a little upgrade on one of the greatest gaming phones. There is no need to explore further if you want pure performance.

Samsung Released Its Galaxy Z Fold5 And Galaxy Flip5 With Slight Design Improvements And Specs Upgrade 

Samsung has announced its next-generation folding-screen products, including the well-known Z Flip phone, along with new, high-end tablets that are water-resistant and Galaxy Watch smartwatches. The Galaxy Z Flip5 and Z Fold5 were presented on Wednesday at an event in South Korea, the company’s country of origin, along with a new line of Android tablets from the Tab S9 family and the Galaxy Watch 6, which runs Google’s Wear OS operating system. The market-dominating Flip series has been updated with a significantly bigger exterior cover screen that can be used for rapid message responses, widgets, and as a viewfinder for snapping selfies with the two primary 12MP cameras. The internal folding screen also includes a unique water-drop hinge design, which the firm claims is 25% more robust and lowers the wrinkle in the center of the display. This design also enables the phone to fold completely flat with no gap along the edges when closed. The water-resistant Z Flip5 is slimmer, lighter, and equipped with Qualcomm’s quicker Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip than its predecessor. For its fifth generation, Samsung’s groundbreaking folding phone-tablet hybrid has also undergone some important improvements. The Z Fold5 closes without a gap at the sides thanks to the enhanced water-drop hinge design shared with the Flip. The internal screen is 25% more durable, brighter, and stylus-compatible.

Samsung Launched Its Galaxy Tab S9 Series With Flagship Specs And IP68 Certification Very First Time

The most recent upgrades to Samsung’s Galaxy Tab series are now available after years of constant improvement. Similar to last year, Samsung will offer a standard tablet with an 11-inch screen and a plus-sized model with a 12.4-inch diagonal, while its top-tier Ultra model has a massive 14.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X panel. The Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra might not appear to be much that different from its predecessor at first appearance, but Samsung was able to make a number of significant improvements. As the first popular Samsung tablets to provide this degree of ingress protection, all three Galaxy Tab S9 models are now IP68 dust and water resistant. The 14.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display on the Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra has a large 1,848 x 2,960px resolution and a 120Hz variable refresh rate. The innovative feature here is Samsung’s Vision Booster, which is also included on Galaxy S23 smartphones and enhances color and display visibility in highly bright environments. A standard wide and an ultrawide 12MP front-facing camera module are housed in the notch cutout, which is still there. The optical in-display fingerprint scanner is also retained, and the quad speakers with AKG tuning are now 20% bigger.

Similar to the Galaxy S23 series and the most recent foldables from Samsung, the Galaxy Tab S9 series is outfitted with the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy processor. The 12GB or 16GB RAM and 256/512GB or 1TB storage options for the Tab S9 Ultra are available. Additionally, each Tab S9 gadget enables microSD card expansion and is available in Wi-Fi only or 5G trims. Dual camera rings and an LED flash are included on the Tab S9 Ultra’s sleek rear. The primary 13MP sensor has autofocus and supports 4K video recording at up to 60 frames per second. The secondary module has a 12MP ultrawide lens, which should be a significant improvement over the Tab S8 Ultra’s 6MP sensor. Samsung is also bringing continuity features for some flagship Galaxy phones, including the new Flip5, which lets you use your phone as a companion display for your tablet in some apps and offers a shared clipboard across your Galaxy devices. The Tab S9 series boots Android 13 with Samsung One UI 5.1 on top. Samsung has also committed to provide five years of security upgrades and four updates for Android. The Tab S9 line of devices will also gain certain unique applications and features, such as GoodNotes, one of the most well-liked iPad note-taking apps that is now accessible only on eligible Samsung Galaxy Tab devices on Android. All three tabs continue to come with a S Pen stylus from Samsung. The Tab S9 Ultra also has a 45W rapid charging, 11,200mAh battery, but you will need to provide your own brick since it is not provided in the retail packaging. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 comes with the same Dynamic AMOLED 2X display as its bigger siblings, in contrast to last year’s Galaxy Tab S8, which used an LCD. The Tab S9 features a single 12MP front-facing camera, a UD fingerprint reader, and an 11-inch diagonal display with a 120Hz adaptive refresh rate. Similar to the Tab S9 Ultra, the Tab S9+ sports a 12.4-inch diagonal, the same refresh rate, and dual 13MP + 8MP rear cameras. The Tab S9 and S9+ versions of the tablet both have Samsung’s Vision Booster. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy processor is also included in the Tab S9 and Tab S9+, although the Tab S9 can only be configured with 8/12GB RAM and 128/256GB storage, while the Plus comes standard with 12GB RAM and can be configured with 256/512GB storage. The Tab S9 has an 8,400mAh battery, whereas the Tab S9+ has a 10,900mAh battery, which is the second area of distinction. Both tablets allow rapid charging at up to 45W. All Tab S9 versions have S Pen styluses and run One UI 5.1 based on Android 13.

Twitter App Renamed To X On iOS App Store And Google Play Store

The famous bird in Twitter’s emblem, known as Larry Bird, was recently discontinued by Elon Musk. Twitter received a new logo and a formal rebranding last week under the name X. Even if the iOS software was updated a few days later to reflect the new brand. Twitter is now listed on the App Store page as X instead of Twitter. Several users have already observed that the Twitter page in the App Store currently just displays the name “X” without any other words or characters. The switch from Twitter to X has generated a lot of controversy. Not just because Musk made the dubious choice to discontinue one of the most well-known brands in the world, but also because it appears to have been a last-minute decision. On the Google Play Store, the app is also renamed and now known as X too. It seems like Musk wants to make X into a worldwide version of WeChat, which is popular in China. According to CEO Linda Yaccarino, the platform’s goals are as she describes in the following tweet.

It remains to be seen whether this rebranding is a good idea or not, after all, Twitter was once a well-known brand. Even when Google and Facebook reorganized as Alphabet and Meta, respectively, they retained the names of their most well-known products. Not only the site/app name, after being widely used, the word “tweet” has been replaced with the more general “post”.

Xiaomi’s Flagship Killer Tablet In Mid 2023 Review: Xiaomi Pad 6

The Xiaomi Pad 6 was introduced in China right away after its announcement in April, 2023 but it has recently begun to make its way into international markets. This one has caught our attention since it provides a well-rounded experience and a few affordable must-have extras. The no-nonsense unibody form of the Xiaomi Pad 6 and its somewhat sizable 11″ display, which boasts a high resolution, 10-bit color depth, 144Hz refresh rate, and Dolby Vision certification, immediately catch your eye. Four Doby Atmos speakers are used to complete that amazing show. Xiaomi’s Pad 6 is equipped with a powerful Snapdragon 870 CPU, 6GB or 8GB of RAM, and 128GB or 256GB of storage. This Xiaomi Pad 6 does not have cellular connectivity. The Xiaomi Pad 6 has Wi-Fi 6, a large 8840mAh battery with quick 33W cable charging, and it runs MIUI 14 on top of Android 13 with support for up to four active apps at once. Additionally, Xiaomi offers a premium Cover cover, a magnetic Smart Pen, and a unique Keyboard case with a powerful magnetic attachment. The Xiaomi Pad 6 appears to be a promising tablet that can be used for working, playing games, watching movies, and even going to school. The Gorilla Glass 3 screen cover and aluminum unibody of the Xiaomi Pad 6 tablet make it a slim and light device. All surfaces of the matte metal are very smooth to the touch and sufficiently grippy. The flat, 6.5mm-thin edges provide a strong grip and excellent handling.

The Xiaomi Pad 6 is a standard tablet with a large 11″ screen that is interruption-free. The 144Hz dynamic refresh rate, HDR10, and Dolby Vision streaming are all supported by the IPS LCD panel’s 309ppi density. Should you want to use the Bluetooth-enabled, magnetic Xiaomi stylus, there is also compatibility for the Smart Pen. The screen bezels are uniformly small and thin enough all around. The front 8MP ultrawide-angle camera will be situated on top of the screen if you are holding the tablet in landscape mode with the USB-C connector facing left. Due of its extra-wide field of vision, this camera features FocusFrame, a fancy word for topic tracking through cropping. Given that we are still speaking in terms of landscape, the Tab 6 boasts four symmetrically arranged, equally powerful speakers that enable Dolby Atmos. The power/lock key is similarly located on the left side, adjacent to one of the speakers. There is no fingerprint reader or 3D face unlock on the tablet, hence there is no biometric security. You will need to use a PIN or password, but if you wish to set up 2D facial recognition or unlock with a Bluetooth accessory like a wristwatch, you can. Between the two speakers on the right side are the USB-C port and one of the microphones. On the bottom, nothing is present. The volume control key, two microphones, and the magnetic pin for the add-on Smart Pen pen are all located on the top. On top of Android 13 is MIUI 14, which powers the Xiaomi Pad 6. Although there are a few enhancements, like as landscape orientation and improved multi-tasking, MIUI for tablets isn’t all that different from MIUI for phones. All of your applications are on your home screens, and MIUI 14 supports widgets, huge folders, and fast shortcuts. The Google Discover page is designed with large screens in mind. In order to take use of the wide screen and great quality, several programs enable a two-column view. Similar to the majority of modern tablets, the dock at the bottom of the screen contains Recently Opened applications in the left corner. The Xiaomi Pad 6 sports a single front and a single back camera. The 13MP camera on the back supports autofocus and 4K video recording. The 8MP is the front camera. The FocusFrame function, which is supported by this camera, will keep you focused during video conversations by intelligently cropping as you go. The viewing angle will also change if another person suddenly enters the scene and then contract again when they leave.

Xiaomi Pad 6 Specs

  • Body: 254.0×165.2×6.5mm, 490g; Glass front (Gorilla Glass 3), aluminum frame, aluminum back; Stylus support (magnetic).
  • Display: 11.00″ IPS LCD, 1B colors, 144Hz, HDR10, Dolby Vision, 550nits, 1800x2880px resolution, 14.4:9 aspect ratio, 309ppi.

With an enhanced aluminum unibody design, a higher-resolution and 144Hz refresh rate display, quicker hardware and charging, and some amazing first-party accessories, the Xiaomi Pad 6 is an improvement over the Xiaomi Pad 5. The Xiaomi Pad 6 is perfect for entertainment of any kind, provides fantastic on-the-go gaming, and thanks to the color temperature sensor and automated screen changes, its 11″ Dolby Vision display is great even for reading books. Dolby Atmos and four strong speakers enhance the already fantastic experience. The software is extremely intuitive and gives superb multitasking features despite being rather tidy. You may even utilize the Xiaomi Pad 6 for some productivity with the help of the Smart Pen and the Keyboard Cover. The Xiaomi Pad 6 has a brilliant display, excellent speakers, and a surprisingly high-quality camera. It is also quick and powerful. Additionally, the battery life is good, and although not the fastest, the charging speed has improved since the previous model. Overall, it’s simple to recommend the Xiaomi Pad 6. Another reason to enjoy it is the affordable price.

Nothing Releases First Software Update For Nothing Phone (2) With Major Camera Improvements

On July 11, 2023, the Nothing Phone (2) was formally launched. The news is that the phone has just received its first ever software upgrade will please the public. This will be ready when people unbox their phones if they already ordered online. Looking at the change log, the upgrade appears to be rather large. Many camera-related improvements are to be expected, including Portrait mode supporting 2x zoom, Motion capture support in 50MP mode, optimized HDR effectiveness “across the board”, better photo clarity at zoom rates between 4x and 10x, improved camera quality in third-party apps, reduced lag when shooting videos, and improved video stabilization algorithm. In addition, this update offers enhanced wireless charging and Battery Share consistency, as well as improved face unlocking and fingerprint sensor performance. It also brings improvements in battery and charging efficiency in challenging environments. NFC and Quick Settings expansion bugs, as well as anonymous and general ones, were solved, and network stability should also be improved. You can now make and record your own Glyph Ringtones thanks to Glyph Composer, which is accessible through the Play Store. With the help of Glyphs, you can add widgets to your lock screen and Always-on-Display and check the status of incoming Uber rides. Finally, you receive four new wallpapers, a one-handed mode, revised Nothing Machine notification noises, rewritten Nothing Machine ringtones, and the option to add your most frequently used Quick Settings tiles straight to your home or lock screens. The 105MB is the update size downloadable over-the-air.

Nothing’s Premium Flagship-Killer Phone In Mid 2023 Review: Nothing Phone (2)

One year after the first Nothing Phone, The Nothing Phone (2) launched. It is building up to be a spectacular follow-up with enough meaningful changes, including a bigger screen, flagship hardware, better cameras, and quicker charging. Oh, and the Glyph UI has, of course, been enlarged. The Glyph UI, which many saw as a gimmick, is now a permanent feature of the Nothing Phone (2) and offers some fresh, fascinating features. The Nothing Phone (2) is in fact continuing the tradition set by its predecessor. A better LTPO panel and bigger 6.7″ OLED screen on the Nothing Phone (2) provide a dynamic refresh rate between 1Hz and 120Hz. It offers 10-bit color depth, HDR10+, 240Hz touch responsiveness, and brightness levels that may reach 1,000 nits under direct sunlight. The processor has been upgraded from the Snapdragon 778G+ in the previous edition to the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. The Nothing Phone has suddenly advanced from the midrange to the flagship category. The twin 50MP cameras on the rear resemble those on the Nothing Phone (1) in that they are wide + ultrawide (with macro), but according to the promotional materials, the upgraded ISP and freshly created sophisticated algorithms allow them to collect more data. And it should be really advantageous for the 2x Super-Res Zoom. Its battery now has a slightly bigger 4,700mAh capacity due to the larger screen and body. Additionally, the wired charging has been enhanced; it has increased from 33W to 45W. There are still alternatives for 15W wireless and 5W reverse wireless. The ingress protection has been upgraded from IP53 to IP54, meaning the Nothing Phone (2) can now withstand splashing water for around 10 minutes. This last enhancement is not evident to the human eye.

The Nothing Phone (2) is a well-rounded product with balanced specifications and well-chosen features. It also provides something special that isn’t found on any other phone on the market: Glyph UI notification LEDs. Nothing has been able to provide top-tier performance while maintaining a mid-range pricing, so we’d say that is a victory even though the most recent Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip may have made it better. We can only think of two things after reading the specifications list in its entirety: an IP67 or IP68 rating would have made this phone an even more appealing proposition. We apologize, but we suspect that this 32MP selfie camera employs yet another Quad-Bayer sensor despite our best efforts to the contrary. Here’s one more thing to consider, many consumers will view the Nothing Phone (2) as a substitute for the Nothing Phone (1). It is in reality a more expensive, premium option with flagship-level specifications. The Nothing Phone (1) model will continue to exist as a more cost-effective variant that provides a roughly comparable experience.

Nothing Phone (2) Specs

Image Source: intl.nothing.tech
  • Body: 162.1×76.4×8.6mm, 201g; Glass front (Gorilla Glass), glass back, aluminum frame; Multiple LED lights on the back (notifications, charging progress, camera fill light), Blinking red light on the back (video recording indicator), IP54 certified.
  • Network: 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G.
  • Display: 6.7″ LTPO OLED, 1B colors, dynamic 120Hz, HDR10+, 500nits (typ), 1,600nits (peak), 1080x2412px resolution, 20:9 aspect ratio, 394ppi.
  • Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 5G (4nm).
  • Memory: 128GB 8GB RAM, 256GB 12GB RAM, 512GB 12GB RAM; UFS 3.1.
  • OS: Android 13, Nothing OS 2.0 (1st Release).
  • WLAN: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/6.
  • Rear camera: Wide (main): 50MP; Ultra wide angle: 50MP.
  • Front camera: 32MP.
  • Battery: 4700mAh; 45W wired, PD3.0, QC4, PPS, 15W wireless, 5W reverse wireless.
  • Others: Fingerprint reader (under display); NFC; stereo speakers.


Particularly at its present price point, The Nothing Phone (2) is a compelling offer in a market that is mostly saturated. The phone features the Glyph UI, which no other phone with the exception of Nothing Phone (1) possesses. Even better, the increased LED capability is a pretty unique and practical way to keep an eye on what’s going on with your phone without having to glance at its screen. A welcome improvement over the Nothing Phone (1) is the Nothing Phone (2)’s bigger, brighter, and more adaptable LTPO OLED display. The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 flagship chipset, which makes using the Nothing Phone (2) easy and supports gaming, is the most noticeable update. The longer battery life is another benefit, the stereo speakers’ fuller sounds, and overall higher photo and video quality. Not to be overlooked is the 45W charging speed. The smoothness of the Nothing OS 2.0 on the Nothing Phone (2) also caught our attention since it is so clear, uncomplicated, and quick. There are some problems with the Nothing Nothing Phone (2), though. First, while having a powerful hardware platform, it does not enable High Frame Rate gaming, which is quite disappointing. Even though the ingress protection grade has increased, the Nothing Phone (2) is still not water-resistant. The Glyph UI is still the key component of every Nothing Phone. Either you love it and use it, or you don’t, in which case the Nothing Phone (2) just becomes another offer. We’ve looked at a ton of options if you don’t need Glyph, and we’re confident that some of them will suit your requirements and budget. But if you want, or if you simply want a breath of new air, a type of innovation in a mostly uninteresting sector, the Nothing Phone (2), or (1), will not let you down. Contrarily, the Nothing Phone (2) delivers a smart selection of features with a dash of quality and two of innovation, that’s why we do suggest taking the Nothing Phone (2) into consideration and perhaps even purchasing it.

Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked Event Is Confirmed To Take Place On July 26, 2023

Samsung said a month ago that the Galaxy Unpacked event will take place in South Korea during the final week of July. The rumor was that it will occur on July 26. As of today, Samsung officially verified the date, proving that the rumors were true. On July 26 at 11am. UTC, the Galaxy Unpacked in Seoul, South Korea, will start. It will be live broadcast on Samsung’s official website and YouTube channel. The number of products Samsung will reveal at this Galaxy Unpacked is unknown, however the company did publish a press release in which it stated that “A new cultural driver is coming” and ask people to “Join the flip side,” with an image that seems to be the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5. That means the Flip5 will be made public at this Galaxy Unpacked event, but we also anticipate the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold5 to be released on July 26; the Korean conglomerate has yet to promote it. It could appear in the next teasers and videos that Samsung has promised to release in the next several coming days.

OnePlus’s Flagship-Killer Phone In Mid 2023 Review: OnePlus Nord 3 5G

It’s finally time for the OnePlus Nord 3 5G, since Nord 2 5G first entered the market more over two years ago, it appears that the wait was worthwhile. The Nord 3 5G has a premium Fluid AMOLED display, the top-tier Dimensity 9000 5G processor, and an enhanced main camera with a top-of-the-line Sony IMX890 sensor with dual circle camera setup of Nord 3 5G. The design is neater without the protruding rectangular camera housing, and the phone is now officially IP54 certified for dust and splash protection. A 6.74-inch display with a dynamic 120Hz refresh rate, 10-bit color depth, up to 1000Hz touch sensitivity, and HDR10+ compatibility with Netflix and Prime support out of the box make up the Fluid AMOLED, which is now larger, faster, and more colorful.

Next, let’s talk about the chipset. It is the flagship-grade Dimensity 9000 5G, a significant upgrade over the Dimensity 1200/1300 in the previous generation with a powerful processor and graphics capable of taking down flagships. Yes, we had to mention those famous words. A 50MP OIS primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, and a 2MP macro camera make up the triple camera on the back, which at first glance is identical to the one on the Nord 2 5G. However, the primary camera now uses a premium Sony IMX890 sensor which also found on the OnePlus 11 and Oppo Find X6 Pro, so it should result in better photos and videos. Additionally, 4K at 60fps video recording was possible because to the new hardware platform. Additionally, the OnePlus Nord 3 5G has dual speakers that can support Dolby Atmos, a huge 5,000mAh battery with 80W SuperVOOC charging, and Android 13 with the most recent OxygenOS 13.1 UI. Black packaging with blue Nord logos is how the Nord 3 5G is shipped. The phone itself, which has a protective film already on it, an 80W power adapter, and one of the recognizable red USB cables are all found within. The big paper section has no protective casing within, despite its size, you will also discover some documentation, a thank-you note from OnePlus.

OnePlus Nord 3 5G Specs

It’s simple to adore the OnePlus Nord 3 5G because of its amazing high-resolution display and astoundingly tiny bezels and cutouts. In this price bracket, the premium hardware is a genuine pleasure, as are the flagship battery life and charging. Additionally, we cannot help but enjoy the IP54 certified body, a considerate choice that adds an extra measure of security. There is no denying that the camera has improved since the Nord 2 5G. Both the primary camera and the ultrawide shooter capture stunning images and movies, day and night. Sure, it was a little over-processed, but it was still superior than what Nord 2 5G had to offer.
