Itel S23 Specification

Detailed Review

This is the Itel S23, and although an entry-level smartphone, it does have a couple of  tricks up its sleeve. ITIL didn’t tell me this, but the color of this phone changes. I was so surprised to see this white phone turn pink the second I walked under the sun. At this price point, you don’t see stuff like this. It also comes in a black color as well, but only this white one changes color, so bear that in mind.

It has a circular camera module, we don’t typically see that these days. The rear is made of plastic, and although it’s glossy plastic, it doesn’t show too many fingerprint marks because of the white color. Yes, it’s made of plastic, but you can still trick someone into believing it’s glass. The rear design definitely looks premium.

The front design, though, hasn’t changed; we still have that teardrop notch in front, huge bezels, and a sizable chin at the bottom. The display is a 6.6-inch 720p LCD display with a 90 Hertz refresh rate. 90 Hertz! This is again stuff that we do not see on phones at this price point. Like, how did they manage to do this? The quality you get out of this display is very fine too. On YouTube, you can watch videos in 1080P, for some reason, and this might not translate well on camera, but the quality is very okay. And then when you add that higher refresh rate, it’s even better. Scrolling around the UI was pretty smooth and responsive. Anyone coming from the S18 or lower would definitely notice the smoothness the second they scroll. Still can’t believe they added this, so a better display this year, but still that teardrop notch.

I’m sure that most people buying this phone don’t mind it as much as we do, but I’m sure they would prefer a hole punch cutout like that on the P40 Plus. Speaking of the P40 plus, the S23 uses the same processor as that phone, the Unisarc T606. It’s a chip-set designed to be faster, so just like the P40 Plus, the S23 feels fast and responsive. It is definitely the fastest Itel phone I’ve used alongside the P40 Plus, but that doesn’t mean it won’t have its limitations. The first being gaming. You can play some light games on this, like Subway Surfers and other games like that, but I wouldn’t buy this phone for gaming. It can also do some multitasking, like keeping two or three apps open in the background, but if you keep piling up the apps, they would have to restart when you open them. It’s very fine for this price category and for someone getting their first smartphone. Interestingly, there’s a variant with 8 gigabytes of hardware RAM and an extra 8 gigabytes of virtual RAM. So, of course, the variant with more RAM would multitask better, but they both get 128 GB of storage. That’s a big deal.

Another big deal would be the rear camera. It’s 50 mega-pixels, that’s a lot, but it’s not only about the number, right? And I would say the photos aren’t bad. They’re not 50-megapixel good, but they’re also not bad, especially when you give it sufficient light and a subject to focus on. Now, note that after you hit the shutter button, you have to wait for about two seconds or your photos come out blurry. Learned that the hard way. Videos aren’t any better, as expected at this price point, though. But I would say footage can be somewhat usable if you’re standing still or perhaps using a tripod. Cameras definitely aren’t one of its strengths.

Battery life, though, is impressive. It has a 5,000 mAh battery, and because of the not power-hungry chipset, this is easily a phone that would last the entire day.

Without color-changing back, these side-mounted fingerprint reader USB Type-C ports, which actually is a first on the Itel S Series. A 90 Hertz refresh rate display, which is like gold for this price category. Up to 8GB of RAM, or 16GB if we count virtual RAM, again never seen in this price category. The fact that it comes with all of these features and is priced this low makes it super easy to recommend, as it’s a worthy upgrade from the S18.

Infinix Hot 12 Play Specification

Detailed Review

The Infinix Hot 12 Play was released alongside the Infinix Hot 12, but the Hot 12 seems to be getting all the attention. The 12 Play has similar specs to the Infinix Hot 12, you could save some money if you buy it ahead of the Infinix Hot 12.

The phone has 4GB RAM, it can be expanded to 7GB using some storage space on the phone. We have the Helio P35 powering the device, but is it sufficient enough to power a phone that costs this much? Infinix collaborated with Free Fire on Hot 12 Play, and there’s a special Free Fire theme in the settings. I find it well done that I had to download the Free Fire game on the phone.

There is a 30-megapixel main camera, a whopping 6000 mAh battery, a 6.8-inch display with 90-hertz refresh rate, just to mention a few specs. The phone is made of plastic with a textured pattern at the back. Hiding fingerprint stains; I’m sure the black color will show fingerprint stains. The frames of the phone are also covered with plastic. There’s a fingerprint scanner at the back, and its placement is not so convenient. Nonetheless, the fingerprint scanner is fast and reliable. The Hot 12 has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, which is one of the differences between the two phones.

There are two cameras at the back and a flashlight. The phone charges through a USB-C port, which is great to see. There’s also a headphone port, a speaker at the bottom, and a microphone. The SIM card and SD card holder is to the left, and the phone supports two SIM cards and a dedicated SD card slot. To the right, we have the unlock key and volume keys that are clicky and tactile. Holding the phone feels comfortable in the hand, but again, it depends on the size of your hand.

Up front, we have a center hole cut out for the surface camera. It is not the smallest I’ve seen, but it doesn’t disrupt while watching content online. The display is an IPS LCD with 720p resolution, but since it has a 90Hz refresh rate, maybe we can forgive them since they didn’t give us a full HD display like they did with the Hot 12, but they added a high refresh rate. The 90Hz refresh rate is noticeable while scrolling on the phone; it makes the display pleasing to the eye and makes scrolling faster and smoother. You can turn on the display back to 60Hz in case you don’t like the high refresh rate. I see no reason why you should do that, though.

Watching YouTube videos is okay; the colors are quite good. Of course, it is not as bright as watching on an OLED display; it is very rare to find a phone with an OLED display at this price, so IPS is just okay. Outdoors, the display is usable even under direct sunlight. The display peaks at 500 nits, but you have to set it to auto brightness to hit the maximum brightness. The bezel launching on the display is noticeable. The display is flat with no curves, exactly how I like displays; they should always be flat. The touch response rate is also very fast, and you can also change the settings of the display in the phone settings.

The display is 6.8 inches, and it might be too big for some people with small hands. Personally, I don’t mind; I have fairly large hands, and the big screen makes gaming more fun. We have 4G RAM onboard, but due to memory fusion, you can expand the RAM to 7GB. Memory fusion is one of the major selling points of the Infinix 12 Play. The feature is supposed to improve app retention in the background and how quick the device performs. As far as I’m concerned, it doesn’t really improve overall performance. The variant I have comes with 64GB storage space, but there is another variant out there with 128 GB of storage space.

The Hot 12 Play is running on Android 11, which is another difference with the Hot 12 that is running on Android 12. XOS 10.0 is the user interface, and you also have the option to use the Free Fire interface in the device theme setting. As usual, you get some unwanted apps on the interface. Some of them push notifications on the phone, which can be annoying. The good thing is that most of them can be removed. You can also add up your themes, phone styles, and wallpapers in settings. By opening the special function in the settings, you have access to memory fusion, the gaming assistant Xclone that allows you to multiply apps, and social toolbox. You can also activate some gesture commands in the special function settings. Icons look smooth because of the refresh rate. The UI keeps getting better. One thing, though, is that I’m not sure if the device will get an Android 12 upgrade. Infinix has a track record of not pushing software updates; hopefully, that will change.

The phone is powered by the MediaTek Helio P35, which is an 8-core chipset that was released in 2018. While the Hot 12 Play is advertised as a gaming device, the chipset doesn’t handle games at the best. Here’s the benchmark score from using Geekbench. I played games like Free Fire and PUBG, and the performance was not at its best for a gaming phone. The phone handles basic tasks like a champ, but after excessive use, it gets warm to the touch. It opens up apps quickly, and performance is just okay, nothing over the top.

There are two cameras at the back: a 20-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. There’s also an 8-megapixel selfie camera at the front. The battery is 6,000 mAh, and charging it can’t be a pain. Infinix added a 15-watt charger inside the box, and charging the phone takes almost three hours. It’s best if you charge the phone at night while you are sleeping. Battery life is superb, however, because the phone can last up to two days with the high refresh rate turned on. Battery life is a standout feature of the Infinix Hot 12 Play.

Rounding up, the Infinix Hot 12 Play is okay for most people that don’t demand too much from their phone. Battery life is as good as any phone in this price category, but if you want better cameras, then there are devices like the Infinix 119 that cost a little bit more but offer better cameras. The display is okay, but most of us want a full HD resolution nowadays. It is advertised as a gaming phone, but it doesn’t handle games quite well.

Xiaomi Redmi 12C Specification

Detailed Review

This is the Redmi 12C, actually it’s a successor to the 10C from last year, and this boasts 4 gigs of RAM, 128 gigs of storage, and the Helio G85 processor from MediaTek.

You get a plastic-built smartphone with cheap-feeling tape-like corners. You can also notice this stripe-like pattern going across the rear of the smartphone and extending beneath the camera module, a design similar to those we saw last year. There is also a fingerprint scanner placed at the rear of the smartphone, and you don’t have this power button doubling as the fingerprint scanner. As for the design, you get a dual SIM tray with a dedicated micro SD card slot. The audio jack is also retained on this device, and there’s a power button and the volume rocker on the right side of the smartphone. Other parts, as far as IO are usual, seem to be a single down-firing speaker grille, micro USB port, and the microphone.

So, you get a plastic-built smartphone with cheap-feeling tape around corners. Honestly, this smartphone feels like it was made in a hurry without any design concepts in mind, just a slab of glass and plastic. The stripe-like pattern on the rear feels like it’s melting under the camera module, design yikes. It’s like a bad tattoo that you can’t get rid of. It has a fingerprint scanner at the back, which is pretty cool. But you know what’s not so cool about this smartphone? The fact that we will get a micro USB connector in 2024. Come on, Redmi, we’re not living in the Stone Age!

Now, the display on here is an LCD panel at 6.7 inches, which is usually bigger than my ego, and that’s about where the interesting bits on this display end. You get 60Hz as far as the refresh rates. The resolution here is just HD, pretty basic display if you ask me, and nothing really interesting to see here. And if you’re using the smartphone in direct sunlight or outdoors, you might as well be staring into the sun directly because this display isn’t the brightest to use outdoors. But that is not peculiar to this smartphone as you should be expecting the same from other similarly priced smartphones.

Now, you get out of the box MIUI 13, which is based on Android 12, for the Redmi 12C. On here, I don’t know about software updates, but it’s just pretty basic MIUI you get on here. You have the Helio G85 processor, 4 gigs of RAM, 128 gigs of storage. Sounds impressive, right? But wait, there’s more. Performance here isn’t top-notch, but it’s still pretty decent for your day-to-day mobile computing tasks and the entry-level games you play with devices. However, I wouldn’t recommend this as a gaming smartphone, unless you want to rage quit every time you try to play a game on this device. Then, by all means, go ahead and do that. That’s your choice. But seriously, this isn’t a gaming smartphone, and you’ll thank me later for saving you from that frustration.

Now, you get a dual-camera setup at the rear here: a 50-megapixel main sensor and a depth sensor to complement this other one. Photos are not exceptional and also not the worst you get from the price you pay. Here are the photos you should expect from this device. Just let me know what you think about them. 

Now, the front-facing camera isn’t the best. It features a 5-megapixel sensor, yes, that’s it, 5 megapixels for a front-facing camera. I wouldn’t take photos with this camera, but actually, I’d rather take selfies using the rear cameras on the smartphone.

This smartphone has a 5000 mAh battery. You have enough juice to power through a day with this device and with no worries. You can charge the smartphone over the 90s in the slow but steady 10-watt charger you get from within the box.

So, what’s my final take and verdict on the Redmi 12C? Is it worth your money? Well, here’s one thing: micro USB isn’t something I expected to see on smartphones in 2024. And while the Redmi 12C isn’t a bad device, there are other brands like Tecno and Infinix that offer better value for money around the same price range. In fact, the 10C, which is its predecessor, feels like a better value for money than this one. However, if you prioritize updates, then the Redmi 12C might be a better option than those other devices, because this might likely happen to be one year of update or so. I don’t know. So ultimately, it’s left for you to decide.

Realme Narzo 50 Specification

Detailed Review

You get 6GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory in Realme Narzo 50, which makes it quite reasonable considering you don’t have to be stuck with those 64 GB of internal memory, right?

We get the 33-watt charger, a Type-C cable, and of course, you do get the device itself. Now, my device is called the Speed Black variant, and there is another Speed Blue version. Realme is really going for the speed thing in this particular device here, so let’s find out what kind of specs it does have.

Before we talk a little bit about the specs, I want to share with you about the design. Now, in terms of the design, it does have this very, very interesting glossy back panel which obviously captures a lot of fingerprints. It does come with a very nice and subtle design on the inside, and that means we do have this kind of kevlar-looking design. Some of you might think it looks a little bit like carbon fiber, so it’s very, very sporty themed. If you are a person who likes sports cars like myself, I actually quite like this kevlar kind of look at the back. Now, bear in mind that there is no actual feel to the texture; it’s completely smooth to the feeling, and it’s only a visual kind of thing that you can see on the back panel right here. Now, apart from that, I must point out that the camera cutout at the back here is barely even sticking out. It’s super flat at the back, and you only have these few lenses sticking out to which we actually have three sensors there, which I will talk about a little bit more later.

Now, apart from that, everything is very smooth all around. You have a grayish kind of frame over here, and at the bottom, you do have your Type-C port, you have your headphone jack, and unfortunately, only single-firing speakers. You don’t get stereo speakers on this device here.

So, now that we’ve finished talking about the design, let’s move on and check out the display at the front because it is quite a nice one considering the price point. So, at the front, we do have a 6.6-inch 1080p LCD display that refreshes at 120Hz, and Realme is saying that it does come with support for multiple refresh rates. So, when you’re not doing too many things on the phone itself, it will try to reduce the refresh rate to try and save you a little bit of battery. Apart from that, it also supports a hertz touch sampling rate, and last but not least, it comes in at approximately 401 PPI pixel density. That means everything here is actually quite clear. Now, the good thing that I do want to point out here is that after using this display for a couple of days now, I noticed that it is actually a very good LCD display. And what I mean by that is that it’s very similar in terms of colors to an AMOLED panel. Now, I’m not kidding here – the colors look really good; it’s very saturated, and they pop very much. In fact, when I turn on dark mode, you will notice that the blacks on this panel are actually very deep black. So, it’s definitely a very good LCD display on the Realme Narzo 50. In terms of brightness levels, I did not find the exact number of nits that it is able to go to, but again, I’ve been using this device outdoors most of the time, so I can vouch for you that this device here, the display, will actually be bright enough for you if you are the kind of person who is mostly outdoors.

Now, moving on to the next thing, let’s talk a little bit about the sensors at the back because we actually have a triple camera setup, although you might see four circles at the back. Now, in terms of the number of megapixels, we do have a main 50-megapixel sensor, a 2-megapixel depth, and a 2-megapixel macro lens. So, having said that, you guys already know that the main interesting sensor here is all about the 50-megapixel sensor. It’s really a shame that we do not have an ultra-wide on the Realme Narzo 50, but again, the 50-megapixel main sensor does take some pretty decent shots. I’m willing to forgive them about that, but I definitely hope in the next Realme Narzo device, we will have that ultra-wide sensor. Now, having said that, let’s take a look at a couple of pictures taken by the Realme Narzo 50.

Now, moving on to night mode, the good news here is that the Realme Narzo 50 is able to brighten a very dark scene, and that’s great. Most devices today in night mode are able to do that very well. So, not much to comment about that, but in terms of the amount of detail and amount of noise, we do see a little bit of noise coming in on the Realme Narzo 50, but at this price range, again, this is to be expected.

Now, moving on to the power, let’s talk a bit about processing power because that is also very important, considering Realme is saying that this is a gaming device. Now, what this device is being powered with is the MediaTek Helio G96 processor, and that is actually the most powerful processor that Realme has put on a Narzo series to date. Previously, it was the G85, then it was the G95, and this time, it is the G96. Now, in terms of RAM, I did mention earlier that mine is a 6GB version, and I am actually able to extend that to 11 GB with the additional RAM expansion. Now, in terms of internal memory, it does come with 128 GB of internal memory, but the good news here is that the memory card slot here is actually supported, so you can put in the micro SD card to expand that memory further on.

Now, how is the experience like using the Realme Narzo 50? Well, honestly speaking, day-to-day use is actually fine – browsing the internet, social media, and all that. Sometimes, it does take a couple of seconds to load up the content, but that is, again, to be expected. In terms of gaming, I did play the Mobile Legends game, my favorite game, and yes, I was able to go to high graphic settings on the Realme Narzo 50. The good news here is that it did not lag too much; there wasn’t that much heat coming up from the device. So, again, it really depends on what kind of games you are playing. If you are playing games like Mobile Legends, racing car games, and all that, that should be fine. But if you’re looking to play games like Genshin Impact, super graphic-intensive games and of course, this device here will support that, but you will have to reduce the graphics to lower graphics settings, so that’s that.

Last but not least, I should also mention the battery. The battery here is a 5,000 mAh battery, and it does support 33-watt fast charge, and it does zero to 100 in less than one hour – pretty standard stuff here, but good to see this again on devices at this range.

Alright, guys, that pretty much sums up our quick look at the Realme Narzo 50. If you’re wondering who this device is for, well, I have to admit that this space is very competitive at this price point, but if you’re looking for something with a great display of hertz, a very smooth LCD display that also looks great, you know, it comes with 33-watt of fast charge, it has a decent 50-megapixel sensor, and of course, it does support the expandable RAM all the way up to 11 GB, so you might actually want to check out the Realme Narzo 50.

Tecno Pova Neo 2 Specification

Detailed Review

Tecno Pova Neo 2 has a 7000 mAh battery, a large 6.82-inch IPS LCD display with a 90Hz refresh rate. It brings the new HRS 12 skin on Android 12. The Pro Value 2 is powered by the MediaTek Helio G85 with 4 or 6GB RAM and 128GB storage space. In the camera department, we have a 16-megapixel main camera and an 8-megapixel selfie camera. On paper, the phone is targeted at gamers on a budget, but should you buy the Tecno Pro Value 2 with the intention of playing games?

Tecno Pova Neo 2 has a glossy plastic build at the back that catches fingerprint stains easily. I mean, you have to put on a case on the phone, or else every contact with your fingers will stain the phone. The Pro Value 2 has a gaming aesthetic, and I wish there were some type of LED light that came out of the stripes at the back of the phone. There are two cameras at the back with a flashlight by the side.

The phone has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and it’s fast. The volume rockers are slightly ahead of the fingerprint scanner. It charges through a USB-C port, and there is also a headphone port and single speaker at the bottom. The speaker on the phone is remarkable, and I enjoyed how it sounded. The Pro Value 2 supports dual 4G SIM cards, and there’s also a memory card slot. The color I have with me is the virtual blue, but there are other color options like orange magma and urano light gray. The design of the Tecno Pro Value is a bit refreshing; my only problem is the way it catches on to fingerprints.

Tecno Pova Neo 2 comes with a large 6.82-inch IPS LCD display panel with a 90Hz refresh rate. The resolution is full HD, but I wish it was full HD plus. It has noticeable bezels around the display, especially the chin, but it’s normal since it’s a budget phone. The display is bright enough, and I was impressed by the level of brightness even when I was under the sunlight. The 90Hz refresh rate on the display of the Tecno Pro Value 2 makes scrolling enjoyable and snappy. There is a cutout for the selfie camera, but it isn’t really intrusive; it won’t distract while watching content or playing games on the phone. There was no issue while using the display, and it’s one of the best features of the phone.

The Tecno Pro Value 2 is powered by the MediaTek Helio G85, and performance was just okay. You can use the phone to run demanding games at low frame rates, and I use it mostly to toggle through social media and calls, and it was just okay. Even though Tecno is advertising it as a budget gaming phone, it won’t play games smoothly, and there will be minimal lags when playing demanding games. Its best use case will be for handling normal tasks like social media and casual work. There are two models, and I have the one with 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage space. The phone has memory fusion, and you can add 5GB of RAM using some storage space on your phone. You can also now turn off memory fusion in the special function menu in the settings.

Software-wise, the Tecno Pro Value 2 is running on Android 12 and the new HRS 12. The phone has NFC, and there are new arrangements on the home screen. You also get the regular Bluetooth on the phone, and they push some unnecessary notifications to the notification tray. Some of the bloatware apps can be removed, while others can only be stopped. Opening up apps isn’t fast, and there are lags sometimes from the animation. You can also do a lot of customizations on the phone. The software isn’t really the best, but I feel little refinements made by Tecno will make it better. I don’t think there will be any software update on the phone, the more we plead to Tecno to send out Android 13 updates.

The Pro Value 2 comes with a 16-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The images are quite okay with HDR present. The colors aren’t popping, and they look washed out in most cases. There is a super night mode in the camera, which sharpens images in low light to make them look better. You have to keep your hands steady to get the best out of the night mode. The depth sensor also does a good job, but there are noticeable color shifts when you switch from the depth sensor to the main sensor or vice versa. There’s an 8-megapixel selfie camera up front, and you need to be in a really good lighting condition to get the best out of it.
