  1. Apple decided to knock it out of the park with the new Mac Pro. It's one of the best and the most powerful pieces of hardware that Apple has ever put out. But with a starting price of $6,000, the Mac Pro, needless to say, is a pricey affair. That $6,000 price tag (roughly Rs 4.15 lakhs), by the way, is for the base variant of the Mac Pro. Apple decided to remain tight-lipped when it comes to the price of a maxed-out Mac Pro, which sort of makes it pretty obvious that it's not going to be cheap. Nope, not happening. In fact, the folks over at TheVerge decided to play around the number a bit and came up with an estimated figure. They shopped around for equivalent part that Apple announced during the keynote, and turns out, it's going to cost you a lot of money. Like, a lot. Well, before we tell you how much it'll most likely cost, let's check out how powerful a fully maxed-out Mac Pro really is. Once Apple puts it out on the market for purchase, you can configure a Mac Pro with a 28-core Intel Xeon W processor, to begin with. That's significantly more powerful than the 18-core iMac that they launched last year, which is already a beast of a machine. In addition to that processor, you can configure the Mac Pro with, wait for it, 1.5TB of RAM. No, that is not a typo. You can actually get a Mac Pro with 1.5 Terabytes of RAM. Also, you can get up to 4TB SSD and four AMD Radeon Pro Vega II Duo GPUs. That is, of course, if you can afford even one. © Apple As you can see, Apple's new Mac Pro is one of the most powerful computers out there on the market right now. The amount of performance you can get out of this machine is something that's almost impossible to comprehend. So, how much is it going to cost? According to TheVerge, a fully maxed out Mac Pro i.e. the top-of-the-line Mac Pro complete with a 28-Core Xeon processor, 1.5TB RAM, and all that good stuff will cost you at least $33,000, which roughly translates to about Rs. 22 lakhs. But wait, we haven't even added GPUs yet, which could easily bump the price up to around an eye-watering $45,000 i.e. roughly around Rs. 32 lakhs. Now, this isn't an iMac Pro we're talking about here, so you have to buy a monitor separately. Lucky for you, Apple also introduced a new 6K display called Pro Display XDR monitor. As the name suggests, it's basically the best monitor has ever created and it's apparently comparable to reference monitors out there that cost upwards of $40,000. © YouTube So, if you add that to the price to make it a fully maxed-out Mac Pro setup with Apple's best display, then you're looking at at least $50,000 which is roughly Rs 35 lakhs. Oh, you know what? Apple is not including the stand for the display inside the box, so please add that as well. That'll cost you an additional $1,000. Go figure! Do make a note that these are just estimates based on the prices of the components that are already out there on the market. We still don't know how much Apple is going to charge you for a fully maxed-out Mac Pro. But looking at Apple's history of pricing, you can expect it to be more than the market standard. And if you're planning to buy one in India, then you'll also have to factor the import duties, which is only going to make it more expensive. That being said, the new Mac Pro's, at least a fully a maxed-out Mac Pro, isn't meant for average everyday users anyway. By the word 'Pro', Apple is targetting the 'true' professionals like cinematographers and filmmakers. We can totally imagine the folks over at some film studio using a fully maxed-out Mac Pro to edit huge chunks of files.
  2. Besides all the kickass software, Apple wowed everyone by unveiling a glorious new Mac Pro at the WWDC 2019 keynote. We've been waiting for a new Mac Pro since 2013 and Apple has packed this piece of hardware with high-end specs like a 28-core Intel Xeon processor and an Afterburner movie-editing graphics card. As good as it is from the inside, well, we sadly can't say the same for its exterior design. It features a boxy silver case with matching feet and handles. Alright fine, let's just admit it, the new Mac Pro looks like a cheese grater! Seriously, just like the mesh panel on the front and back. You can't unsee it now. And as always, Twitter was quick enough to welcome Apple's shiny new design with some freshly made memes. Here are a few of them that'll make you hungry for more cheese grater memes: Oh yes! We can't wait for the videos. So who's the first YouTuber that's going to ACTUALLY grate cheese on their new @Apple Mac Pro just for the views? ð§ð§ð§ #MacNCheesePro #MacPro #WWDC19 pic.twitter.com/hYz3t1O6AP — Brian Tong (@briantong) June 3, 2019 28 Chedderflops of memory?

  3. Apple's Touch Bar implementation on the MacBook Pro received a lot of flak for not exactly being the most useful hardware feature. No doubt, it comes handy at times, but it's not really the most practical piece of hardware. But what if the Touch Bar is replaced with a 14-inch 4K screen, which can essentially act as a secondary display? Well, that's exactly what ASUS has pulled off at Computex 2019 with its new ZenBook Pro Duo notebook. Before we talk about the laptop and all its features, let's take a moment to appreciate how good it looks. Yes, it looks incredibly cool, right? Well, it's ought to, because you're looking at two 4k screens there. There's a 15-inch 16:9 OLED panel, which is just like what you get on most other laptops. But in addition to that, the ZenBook Pro Duo offers a 32:9 IPS “ScreenPad Plus” screen right below it. Yes, it's just like Apple's MacBook Pro's Touch Bar, except it's bigger and appears to be much more functional. The notebook's keyboard deck looks very similar to the one seen on ASUS' Zephyrus S, which we recently reviewed. It's got a touchpad on the right side that also doubles up as the Numpad with just the press of a button. © YouTube Internally, the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo can be configured with up to an octa-core Intel Core i9 processor and with an Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU. It's got a Thunderbolt 3 port, two USB-A ports, a headphone jack, and an HDMI port. It's a bit on the heavier side, coming in at 2.4 kgs. But if you want a smaller, slightly lighter one, then you can choose to go with the 14-inch variant. ASUS hasn't announced the pricing or the availability of the notebook, and it looks like ASUS is going to keep us waiting for a while.
  4. It's true, hard workouts equal hard results and it takes lots of effort to get a great body. Your entire hard work means nothing if you can't recover from your killer sessions. © Getty Images The faster you can recover, the more intensity you can keep up in your sessions. If you are looking to speed up your recovery so you can get bigger and stronger, then follow these 5 guidelines: 1) Embrace Your Post Workout Meal: You need food to be energized. Many of you are hungry and are low in energy after a workout. You get energy from food and beverages. Ergo, you need to eat some carbs and protein post-exercise. How much? That's subjective. A good range would be 40-80g of carbs and 30-40g of protein. 2) Short Naps: In addition to a good night's sleep (if your schedule will allow it) get in at least one 15 to 20-minute nap during the day. These little short naps help to aid in recovery. Small naps are good for your heart, blood pressure, stress levels and even weight management. When you sleep your body recovers. 3) Hydration And Caffeine: Drinking adequate amounts of water will help you to flush out toxins from your muscles. your body needs water to function; a small two per cent dehydration will result in a 10 per cent reduction in strength. © Getty Images Proper hydration also helps to keep our joints lubricated. Drinking water will lead to improved gym performance and fuller muscles. Caffeine has shown to suppress fatigue and might help you to boost you after your workout. Have a cup of coffee pre-workout if you like it. 4) Active Rest Recovery Is Your Friend: Rest days give your muscles a hard-earned break from yourself beating at the gym. If you feel up to it, some light movement like grocery or clothes shopping, an easy bike ride, watching a movie, or even doing mobility drills could help in recovery-promoting effects as well. These strategies come under active recovery. Light cardio after a heavy strength training session will help relieve soreness by stimulating blood flow and improving circulation to the muscles. If you experience muscular tightness, then foam rolling can be an excellent way to fight this for flexibility but don't expect any wonder to happen via foam rolling, a new meta-analysis on foam rolling says its a complete waste of time just helps in some flexibility. 5) Reduce Overall Stress: Acute stress-which comes from training is a good thing. Chronic stress from other sources like work, relationship, inadequate sleep, etc can significantly affect how you feel on a day-to-day basis as well as how quickly you recover. Too much stress can drastically delay your recovery time between workouts. When hard workouts are tossed into the volatile combination of high chronic stress and an already tired body, you are asking your body to finally break down in the form of dull results or, worse. © Getty Images Any form of stress in your life is going to take a toll on your overall well-being and your body's capacity to take on anything further. Take steps to reduce your stress level to ensure you can jump back faster. Do something you really enjoy, make yourself happy, and surround yourself with people who love you and support you. Recovery is a crucial part of any fitness-related goal. No recovery = no results! Author bio: Yashovardhan Singh is an online fitness coach with www.getsetgo.fitness, an online fitness platform.

  5. Huawei's budget sub-brand Honor has been launching some amazing phones lately. Honor's phones usually go easy on your pockets, but offer great value for money. On the same lines, the company has now launched three new phones under the new 'Honor 20 Series'. Let's check them out: Honor 20 & Honor 20 Pro Both the Honor 20 and the Honor 20 Pro are more or less the same phones. They both look stunning and offer some really powerful internal specs. You're looking at a 6.26-inch IPS hole-punch display just like the Honor View 20. It comes with a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 on both devices. They both have the same screen-to-body ratio i.e. about 91.6 per cent, and they simply look stunning from the front. © Twitter In terms of the specs, the Honor 20 and the Honor 20 Pro are powered by Huawei's flagship Kirin 980 chipset with oodles of RAM and storage to go along with it. While the Honor 20 tops out at 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage, the Pro variant has 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage. Besides the RAM and storage, both the devices also have a slightly different camera setup. Both devices have a 48MP f/1.4 main camera, a 16MP f/2.2 wide-angle camera, a 2MP f/2.4 macro and a 32MP f/2.0 selfie camera with a punch hole on the front. The only difference is that the Honor 20 Pro comes with an additional 8MP f/2.4 telephoto camera, whereas the Honor 20 comes with a 2MP depth sensor. With 30x digital zoom and a large 1/2-inch Sony sensor, the telephoto camera's Handheld Moon Shot allows you to capture the moon's beauty with no extra equipment. #HONOR20Series #CaptureWonder pic.twitter.com/Dd60ZWnRgO — HONOR (@Honorglobal) May 21, 2019 The Pro variant of the phone also has a slightly bigger battery with 4,000 mAh capacity, while the regular variant has a 3,750 mAh battery. Rest of the stuff is the same. You get a side mounted fingerprint scanner, fast-charging support, etc. The Honor 20 Pro will be available in Phantom Black and Phantom Blue colour variants, whereas the regular variant comes in Midnight Black and Sapphire Blue shades. Honor 20 Lite © Twitter Next up, we have the Honor 20 Lite, which is more of a budget option for people who are not looking to splurge a lot of cash. The first and the most obvious difference here is the waterdrop notch on the front, instead of a punch hole display. It's a 6.21-inch FHD+ screen with a 32MP selfie shooter tucked inside. The Honor 20 Lite also packs a triple camera setup on the back, which includes a 24MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra wide-angle sensor with a 120-degree FOV, and a third depth sensor. In terms of the specs, the Honor 20 Lite is powered by the Kirin 710 chipset, coupled with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. It's got a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and the phone will be available in Phantom Blue, Phantom Red, and the classic Midnight Black shades. Pricing & Availability The Honor 20 has been priced at 499 Euros for the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant, whereas the Honor 20 Pro with 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage will cost you 599 Euros. The Honor 20 Lite, which is a budget option, will set you back 299 euros.
  6. Apple has refreshed its MacBook Pro laptops with new and powerful Intel core processors, which means you'll now get better performance out of these MacBooks. In fact, Apple says these are the fastest MacBook Pro laptops it has ever made. That's cool, but the most important change here is the new keyboard. Apple has been receiving a lot of flak for making poor keyboards for a long time now, so we hope these new ones are better. The company didn't provide any details, but we do know that they've changed the material used in its butterfly switch keyboards to avoid the problem of producing double keystrokes. © Apple As for the spec bump, here's how powerful the new MacBook Pro models are: The 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bat now comes with faster 8th gen processors. The base model packs a 2.4GHz quad-core Core i5 CPU with Turbo Boost speed up to 4.1GHz, and you can configure the notebook with a beefier 2.8GHz quad-core Core i7 CPU if you're willing to shell out more cash. The non-Touch Bar model sadly hasn't received a spec bump, so the new base 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar is now 2.3x faster than the fastest dual-core non-Touch Bar 13-inch MacBook Pro that's available. As for the 15-inch MacBook Pros, well these are show stoppers. Apple has updated the 15-inch MacBook Pro models with 9th gen Intel core processors. The base model here comes with a 2.6GHz six-core Core i7 processor with Turbo Boost speed up to 4.5GHz. Meanwhile, the top end variant comes fitted with a 2.3GHz eight-core Core i9 processor with Turbo Boost up to 4.8GHz. © Apple There's also a variant with a 2.4GHz eight-core Core i9 processor with Turbo Boost up to 5GHz. That, of course, will cost you a lot of money, but it's the fastest MacBook Pro laptop that Apple has ever made to date. All the 15-inch MacBook Pro models with Radeon Pro 555x and 560x discrete graphics, depending on the model you're picking. Let's hope these new ones won't have any heating issues. Pricing & Availability The new MacBook Pro lineup starts at Rs. 1,59,900 for the 13-inch with Touch Bar model, whereas the 15-inch model will come at a starting price of Rs 1,99,900. These updated MacBook Pro laptops will be available in India starting this week and you'll be able to pick one up from Apple Authorised resellers across the country.
  7. There was a lot of hype surrounding the new OnePlus 7 series phones and rightfully so. The company launched both the phones earlier this week with much fanfare. ASUS, on the other hand, just launched a new device called the ZenFone 6 without much fanfare. Anyway, here's everything you need to know about this phone. The new ASUS ZenFone 6, much like the OnePlus 7 Pro, sports a completely bezel-less screen. However, it doesn't have a pop-up selfie camera. Instead, the ZenFone 6 has a flip-top camera, which is just as crazy as it sounds. It's very similar to Samsung's Galaxy A80, but this one appears to have a little more complicated setup and we have our doubts about its durability. © YouTube The flip-top camera setup includes two lenses - there's a 48MP Sony IMX586 coupled with a 13MP ultra wide-angle lens. And since the setup can be rotated, you get these two super powerful cameras for the selfies too. As for the specs itself, ASUS has decided to go all in with a Snapdragon 855 SoC, up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage. Both the front as well as the back are protected by Gorilla Glass 6, and the phone has a 5,000 mAh battery inside. Above all, ASUS has decided to go with a near-stock version of Android with this phone, which is just awesome, and it also has a 3.5mm headphone jack. Nice! © ASUS Pricing & Availability The ASUS ZenFone 6 will be available in Europe for a starting price of €499 for the base variant. The 6GB + 128GB version will retail for €559, whereas the top-end variant with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage is priced at €599. The prices, as you can see, certainly makes it look like a better deal than the OnePlus 7 Pro or any flagship phone out there on the market right now, but we'll have to see how it performs and how much it'll cost in India.
  8. OnePlus' new OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro smartphones are now official. There's a lot to like about the new OnePlus 7 Pro, and you can read all about it in our full review of the phone right here. While most people are excited to see a new triple camera setup and a faster 90Hz display, one of the cool new features that I really like about the phone, is that the pop-up selfie camera can automatically retract itself during a fall. Yes, you read that right. The OnePlus 7 Pro's pop-up camera module, that houses the 16MP selfie shooter, can automatically retract itself when, say, you've dropped the phone while taking a selfie or unlocking it via facial recognition. The company did talk about this feature yesterday during the launch event, but it wasn't until today when I saw the feature in action. Here, check out the video and see the feature in action yourself - DROP TEST WITH THE #OnePlus7Pro! Watch how quickly the pop-up front facing camera retracts to protect it! pic.twitter.com/9EBvN3sphB — iJustine (@ijustine) May 14, 2019 As you can see in the video, the phone uses built-in sensors like an accelerometer and a gyroscope to detect when it's falling. In such cases, if the pop-up selfie camera is in use, then it'll automatically lower itself down and make sure that it's not getting damaged. OnePlus says the pop-up camera module is very durable. Heck, the company even showcased a video at the launch in which the module is seen lifting a block that's 40.2 pounds (22.3 Kgs) heavy. Yes, it appears to be very strong, but a little bit of smartness to protect a mishap from happening doesn't hurt anyone, right It's a simple, yet meaningful use of the device' sensors to protect the hardware features. I am sure there are a ton of other features that are worth noting, but it's little things like this that matter the most when it comes to user experience. Good job, OnePlus!
  9. Finally! The OnePlus 7 Pro is officially here in all its glory. This time around, OnePlus went out of its way to build an ultra-premium smartphone that comes fully loaded with powerful hardware like Snapdragon 855 SoC, up to 12GB OF RAM, a 90Hz refresh rate display, 48MP Triple camera setup, and more. From its awesome new bezel-less design to the cool new pop-up camera, here's everything you need to know about the new OnePlus 7 Pro. © OnePlus The new OnePlus 7 Pro sports an awesome bezel-less design with nothing but just the display on the front. It's a 6.67-inch AMOLED display with a QHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. OnePlus managed to eliminate the notch by using a pop-up camera module. So, the selfie camera will now pop-up only when you need it. Internally, the OnePlus 7 Pro packs some really powerful internals. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC coupled with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. It's running OnePlus' OxygenOS based on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box. The device also has an in-display fingerprint scanner for unlocking and a USB Type-C port at the bottom that supports OnePlus Warp Charge 30. The OnePlus 7 Pro also packs a 4,000 mAh battery inside, and it also sports Dual stereo speakers, an upgraded vibration motor, and more. All the tech is packed inside a beautiful body that's protected by Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front as well as the back. © OnePlus Moving on to the optics, the OnePlus 7 Pro features a 48MP Sony IMX586 sensor at the back with an f/1.6 aperture, OIS, and EIS. The main sensor is supported by an 8MP Telephoto lens with an f/2.4 aperture, along with a 16MP Ultra Wide Angle Lens with an f/2.2 aperture and 117-degree field of view. There's dual LED flash and 3x optical zoom with which you can close in to your subject. On the front, there's a 16MP selfie shooter with an f/2.0 aperture. OnePlus 7 In addition to the OnePlus 7 Pro that literally stole the show, we also got the new OnePlus 7. Unlike the OnePlus 7 Pro, the OnePlus 7 isn't a radically different from the last year's OnePlus 6T. In fact, it looks very similar to the 6T in terms of the design and it even packs the same display with a notch design. The changes have been made internally. The OnePlus 7 is powered by a Snapdragon 855 SoC just like the 7 Pro and it comes with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage. In terms of the optics, you're looking at a dual camera setup just like last year. It's a 48MP + 5MP combo at the back, and there's a 16MP selfie shooter on the front. The phone will also come with 20 watts fast charge support. The OnePlus 7 will be available in two color variants i.e Red and Mirror Gray. Pricing & Availability The OnePlus 7 Pro will go on sale in India starting May 17, and you'll be able to pick one up from Amazon India or OnePlus retail stores in the country. The base variant of the OnePlus 7 Pro with 6GB RAM + 128GB storage will start at Rs. 48,999. You can also pick up the variant with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage for Rs. 52,999 or you can go all in and purchase with 12GB RAM + 256GB storage variant for Rs. 57,999. As for the OnePlus 7, the base variant is priced at Rs. 32,999. You can also pick up the 8GB + 256GB variant for Rs. 37,999. The OnePlus 7 will go on sale starting the same day. OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2 © OnePlus Lastly, we also have the new Bullets Wireless 2 earphones. These new pair of earphones come with a slightly new design and a superior sound quality according to OnePlus. The company says you can listen to over 10 hours of music on a single charge and they also support the OnePlus Warp charge. The new OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2 will be available starting XX and they'll cost Rs. 5,999.
  10. The OnePlus 7 Pro was launched in India today and we've been using the smartphone for a while to let you know how the smartphone fares in 2019. OnePlus is one of those unique brands that have been able to dethrone giants like Apple and Samsung in India by offering flagship-level smartphones for a considerably less price. OnePlus makes smartphones using top of the line components and offer a seamless OS experience that can only be matched by Google's Pixel smartphones. The OnePlus 7 Pro has a complete design overhaul when compared to the OnePlus 6/6T with some new features, a brand new display and Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 855 processor. Here's what we think about the OnePlus 7 Pro and everything it has to offer: Design And Display © MensXP The OnePlus 7 Pro is beautifully designed and comes with no notches, almost zero bezels and a very vivid screen. At the back, there's a slight curve for better ergonomics and has a reflective glass that catches light from different angles. The colours are not over the top as other smartphones keeping it interesting and alluring at the same time. The OnePlus 7 Pro comes with a triple camera setup and has the same branding placement as the OnePlus 6T. The OnePlus 7 Pro comes in three colours: Nebula Blue, Almond and Mirror Gray. At the bottom, the smartphone has the USB-C port, a speaker grille and a SIM card slot. OnePlus has removed the headphone jack as well in favour for better water resistance as it was quite expected since it was removed from the OnePlus 6T as well. At the front, the notch has been completely removed and now has QHD+6.67-inch AMOLED display. The display itself is one of the most beautiful panels we've ever seen on a smartphone. This is also the first time OnePlus has included a 90Hz refresh rate panel which results in a smoother experience and better performance on games. Having said that, the battery life of the smartphone does drop considerably when used in the 90Hz mode. Thankfully, OnePlus has given you the option to switch to 60Hz refresh rate in the display settings. © MensXP The display itself is very bright and has a pixel density of 556 ppi. The colour reproduction on the display has been outstanding and gave the Samsung Galaxy S10+ a run for its money. It was a delight to watch TV shows on Netflix that has HDR support as the OnePlus 7 Pro's display is also HDR10+ certified. The blacks look deep and dark, the contrast ratio is on point and has high saturation levels. In order to complement your viewing experience, the OnePlus 7 Pro also comes with dual stereo speakers that were previously missing in the OnePlus 6T. Since there is no fingerprint sensor, the OnePlus 7 Pro also has an in-display fingerprint sensor just like the OnePlus 6T, albeit it works far faster and smoother than before. Since the notch has also been removed, OnePlus 7 Pro now comes with a pop-up selfie camera just like some VIVO and OPPO smartphones. Having said that, it is worthy to point out that the OnePlus 7 Pro is a very heavy phone and cause fatigue if you are used to the company's previous lighter smartphones. There were times when our fingers and palm would simply tire out when using the smartphone due to its weight. If you plan on using a cover, then it is even heavier. However, once you start using the smartphone, your palm and fingers will get used to it over time. Performance OnePlus smartphones are known to have great components under the hood and the OnePlus 7 Pro is no exception. The OnePlus 7 Pro is blazingly fast and it's all thanks to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 processor. The flagship level processor is coupled with 6/8 or 12 GB of RAM and comes with different storage options. We tested the 12GB RAM variant and it exceeded our expectations way too much. We ran a simple Geekbench 4 test and our review unit scored 3509 in the single-core test while it scored a very impressive 11130 score in the multi-core test. That's the fastest Android smartphone we've tested this year and is probably the only device that comes close to the iPhone XS Max's performance. © MensXP While gaming, you can run games like PUBG Mobile on the highest settings and there is no frame rate drop according to our Gamebench test. The smartphone also comes with new Haptic Vibration that amplifies your experience while playing games. The heat management is also up to the mark as the OnePlus 7 Pro now comes with a 10-layer Liquid Cooling system. The OnePlus 7 Pro also has a RAM boost mode which basically means that it will allocate remaining RAM to memory intensive applications such as First Person Shooter games. This means you will be able to load games faster thanks to the new mode in combination with the new UFS 3.0 type of storage. UFS 3.0 is probably the fastest form of storage that basically means it can read and write files at a much faster pace than any other smartphone out there. Overall, the performance of the smartphone was outstanding and it is by far the smoothest Android smartphone we've used till date. This is also partly because of OnePlus' Oxygen OS skin that is bloat-free and comes with new features. Cameras © MensXP In terms of photography, the OnePlus 7 Pro comes with a triple camera setup at the back where the primary sensor is a Sony IMX586 48-MP sensor that has an aperture of f/1.6 and pixel size of up to 1.6 μm. The sensor has both OIS and EIS. The second sensor is an ultra-wide 16 MP, f/2.2, with a 117° field of view. The third is an 8 MP, f/2.4, a telephoto sensor with 3x zoom. Now that you know the camera specifications, we were left quite disappointed with the camera performance on the OnePlus 7 Pro. Don't get us wrong, it can do a fair job of taking pictures but overall the quality of images felt underwhelming. The portrait images were not accurate at blurring the edges of our subject while there was no noticeable difference taking images with NightScape. The smartphone does a decent job of taking good images in good lighting conditions but did not perform as expected in the darker environments. Images would turn out to be very warm and sometimes lack the detail that one looks for in pictures. Some images were also overly saturated even when we tried our best to turn the levels down. Overall, the imaging on the OnePlus 7 Pro needs a lot of work and tweaking at the moment as most images simply look too soft. We hope a future update could fix these issues in the near future. © MensXP The biggest change on the OnePlus 7 Pro is the placement of the selfie camera. Since it is a pop-up selfie camera, it comes out from the top of the smartphone each time you switch modes or when you need to unlock using facial recognition. While testing, the pop-up selfie camera would take less than a second to arise and around the same time to go back down. The selfie camera has a 16 MP, f/2.0 sensor that is more than enough for taking simple selfies. The pop-up camera works just like it does on the Vivo V15 Pro and other smartphones that have a similar feature. Here are some camera samples for your reference: Battery Life The OnePlus 7 Pro comes with a 4,000 mAh battery that performs well if you know what you are doing. For example, if you are using your display with 90Hz refresh rate and at QHD+ resolution, your battery life will fall considerably. You can turn down the refresh rate or the resolution in order to conserve battery life. Having said that, when you have turned down either one of the options, you can expect an average of 5 hours and 30 minutes of screen-on-time with around 20 percent left. If you tweak either the refresh rate or the resolution, expect the screen on time to fall considerably faster. Having said that, we used the OnePlus 7 Pro extensively for navigation, playing memory and GPU intensive games like PUBG Mobile and Asphalt and a lot of internet browsing. The OnePlus 7 Pro also comes with the company's new Warp Charge 30 adapter with basically is the same charger that came with the McLaren edition of the OnePlus 6T. It increases your charging speed by 38% and we saw our smartphone go from 10% to 69% in less than 20 minutes. Software © MensXP When it comes to the software, I would buy a OnePlus smartphone just for Oxygen OS. It is by far the cleanest and most stable skin you find on a smartphone apart from Pixel smartphones. It offers almost a pure Android experience without any bloat or add-ons. This time around OnePlus has added new features such as Zen Mode. It basically lets users turn off almost all features of the smartphone apart from receiving phone calls. It is the company's effort for better smartphone management and digital wellbeing. The feature cuts access to the smartphone for a period of 20 minutes so that you can tackle smartphone addiction in a better manner. It cannot be cancelled once you start Zen Mode and lock all the apps until 20 minutes elapses. You can also use Google's native Digital Wellbeing feature to track your habits and the amount of time you spend on certain applications. The OnePlus 7 Pro also comes with a gaming mode where it mutes notifications and let you toggle custom settings such as disabling automatic brightness. Within the gaming mode, you also get a new Fnatic mode which basically takes these settings to the next level. It basically blocks all notifications apart from low battery notification, alarm and timer. It also fine tunes the processor to give gaming priority and disable the secondary SIM to give priority to the Primary SIM card for better signal strength. You will need to enable the gaming mode first in order to switch on the Fnatic mode. The Final Say There's no other smartphone that can perform as well as this beast, has a crisp display that offers vivid colours and gives great battery performance if you know what you are doing. Having said that, if you love to take pictures, the OnePlus 7 Pro still needs to improve a lot, especially because of the price tag. When you charge almost flagship level prices, the camera performance has to be up there as well in order to justify a recommendation. Having said that, the performance outweighs the camera performance for us as there's no other Android smartphone that can match up to the OnePlus 7 Pro at the moment. If you want a premium smartphone that can last long, perform well while gaming and take decent pictures, the OnePlus 7 pro is for you.
  11. I am super pumped up for the upcoming week. My dream smartphone, OnePlus 7 Pro is hitting the markets on May 14 with a grand global launch across New York, London and Bangalore at 8.15 PM IST. You know what this means for tech watchers like me, right? All we are doing right now is spending hours on Twitter speculating how this product will turn out to be. While this is a huge news in itself, there is something even bigger - a chance to experience the flagship device first-hand before everyone else. How you ask? OnePlus will host a one-of-a-kind 'OnePlus Experience Pop-Up' on May 17 (three days post launch), starting at 7PM at Amphitheatre, Select City Walk, New Delhi. The Experience Pop-Up will be an experiential zone where the OnePlus community will come together to get their hands on the latest flagship from the brand - the OnePlus 7 Pro. There will also be limited stock pop-up stores on May 15 across seven major cities in India - Bangalore, New Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune, Chennai and Ahmedabad, where attendees will be the first to get their hands on the device. There's more! Early birds at these pop-ups will also stand a chance to receive exclusive goodies including OnePlus Type-C Bullets, Netflix and Amazon Vouchers, along with OnePlus back cases, OnePlus tote bags and OnePlus 'Never Settle' t-shirts. There will also be exclusive workshops and exciting events for the community, over the course of the month including gaming leagues, content creation and photography workshops. Ready to Go Beyond Speed? Invites for the #OnePlus7Series Launch Event are now LIVE ð¨ Get yours here - https://t.co/qh8beU9AOI pic.twitter.com/JYtn7F8rUU — OnePlus India (@OnePlus_IN) April 25, 2019 So what is that we are expecting out of the brand this time? We speculate that the OnePlus 7 is likely to do away with the dewdrop notch which was introduced in the OnePlus 6T. Instead of the notch, the OnePlus 7 Pro may include a pop-up camera selfie camera instead and also have QHD+ 90Hz AMOLED display. While there are too many speculations and rumours floating across the internet, we can find it all on May 14 when the flagship product launches. More than 8,000 attendees are expected to attend this worldwide launch. But for those who cannot, live stream the launch here.
  12. The OnePlus 7 Pro already sounds like the perfect smartphone ever by the Chinese company as its launch is scheduled for next week. OnePlus has now confirmed that the OnePlus 7 Pro will have an HDR10+ display in addition to the 90Hz refresh rate on the panel. The display on the OnePlus 7 Pro has already been awarded an A+ grade by DisplayMate however, the inclusion of HDR10 takes the smartphone even further. © Twitter Currently, only the Galaxy S10/S10 Plus supports HDR10+ on its screens and the OnePlus 7 Pro will be the second smartphone in India to have support. It is the perfect display for users who love to watch video content on the go. Currently, platforms like Amazon Prime, Netflix and even YouTube have HDR compatible shows which should be supported by the OnePlus 7 Pro. OnePlus clarified that it's not ready to share OTT partnerships as of now. HDR10+ is known to adjust the contrast and the dynamic range on HDR content. OnePlus says, since “it is an open format, it's license and royalty free and therefore easily adoptable by manufacturers and content producers with quality maintained through an HDR10+ certification and logo program.” © Twitter “HDR10+ is the future of not just television displays, but also smartphone displays as well. We hope that our newest device will set a new benchmark for the smartphone industry and open up a new world of visual fluidity for users. We're glad we are leading the ranks in sharing quality technology with the world.” says OnePlus CEO Pete Lau. © Twitter The launch event for the OnePlus 7 series is scheduled to take place on 14th May and will be held in three cities i.e. New York, London and Bangalore and will start at 8:15 PM IST. According to rumours, the OnePlus 7 Pro is going to have a QHD+ 90 Hz AMOLED display and will be relatively cheaper than flagship devices. The OnePlus 7 Pro is rumoured to have a starting price of Rs 49,999 for 6GB + 128GB model. You can read more about pricing leaks here.
  13. We're still a few days away from the official launch of the new OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro. However, we already know pretty much everything about the phone, including its pricing. Yes, we just learned that the OnePlus 7 Pro will retail in India for a starting price of Rs 49,999 for the base variant of the phone with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. You will also be able to pick up the variant with 8GB RAM and 256G internal storage for Rs 52,999, or you can go all in and get the high-end variant with a whopping 12GB RAM and 256GB internal storage for Rs 57,999. Exclusive: Here's the #OnePlus7Pro India Pricing: 6GB+128GB: â¹ 49,999 8GB+256GB: â¹ 52,999 12GB+256GB: â¹ 57,999 Disclaimer- Prices MAY change before launch under some circumstances and I can't be 100% sure about such leaks.#OnePlus7 Pro #OnePlus7Series #OnePlusIndia pic.twitter.com/Rgo2oD8kpA — Ishan Agarwal (@ishanagarwal24) May 4, 2019 The prices are a bit high compared to the previous OnePlus smartphones, but that's not really a surprise considering the fact that we are talking about the Pro variant of the phone here. There's no information about the prices of the regular OnePlus 7, but we think it'll comparatively cheaper. As always, it's worth pointing out that these aren't the official prices confirmed by the company. These prices were put out by Ishan Agarwal, a noted leaker with a good track record. But even he tweeted the pricing with a disclaimer, so we suggest you take it with a pinch of salt. By the way, he also noted that the OnePlus 7 Pro will be available in Mirror Grey, Nebula Blue, and Almond color variants. The new phones, as mentioned earlier, will be officially launched in a couple of weeks time, so stay tuned for more details.
  14. OnePlus is all set to debut the new OnePlus 7 series of phones on May 14. However, it looks like there's no stopping the flood of leaks about the phones that are hitting the shores. Following the OnePlus 7 Pro box packaging, the official renders of the OnePlus 7 Pro have now leaked online. The renders have been obtained by the folks over at Android Central from a noted leaked Ishaan Agarwal, and it shows off the phone in all its glory. © OnePlus 7 Pro As you can see, the upcoming OnePlus 7 Pro will have an all-screen design on the front and a triple camera set up at the back. These cameras, in case you don't know, have 3x optical zoom too. The renders apparently feature the Nebula Blue and Mirror Grey variants and we gotta say that the phone looks absolutely gorgeous. Just look at that display! We can also see the alert slider on the right side of the phone along with the power button, whereas the volume rockers are on the left. The device also looks very slim, but we can't really say if it's slimmer than the OnePlus 6T just yet. © OnePlus 7 Pro The back design of the phone is largely unchanged, and the front is where it's at. As you can see, the front is almost entirely covered with the display. It's said to be a 90Hz QHD+ resolution panel, so we're really excited to see what it looks like in person.
  15. It's almost time for one of the biggest launches of the year and there's now a new leak which has nothing to do with the phone. Instead, we get to see everything that will be launching alongside the new OnePlus smartphones. The leaked images look more like the reviewer's box which includes everything from the smartphone to the accessories. © Twitter_Ishan Agarwal The leaked image gives us a glimpse of everything else OnePlus is planning to launch. At first glance, you see the OnePlus Wireless Bullets 2 which is rumoured to be a triple-driver Bluetooth earphone similar to what 1MORE makes. Apart from the wireless OnePlus bullets, the Chinese company is also looking to launch a Warp Charge 30 car charger. © Twitter_Linus Tech Tips The OnePlus 7 Pro also reveals that the in-car charger will be based on the Warp Charge 30 charger that was introduced with the McLaren edition of the OnePlus 6T. This also kind of confirms that the wall charger will be the same as the McLaren edition as well. © Twitter_Ishan Agarwal The leak of the images came from an accidental tweet by Linus Tech Tips and more were shared by Ishan Agarwal on Twitter. The images shared by Mr Agarwal show more details about the packaging; however, the actual device has not been pictured yet. The packaging has the 'Go Beyond Speed' tagline we've seen in previous rumours. However, the accessories in the box are what impressed us the most and we can't wait to check them out ourselves.
  16. OnePlus is all set to unveil its new OnePlus 7 smartphone along with a more premium model, the OnePlus 7 Pro, on May 14. While we are still a couple of weeks away from the launch, the first camera samples from the OnePlus 7 Pro are already out. The folks over at WIRED went hands-on with the phone and shared their experience. The first piece of information to note here is that the OnePlus 7 Pro will be capable of 3x optical zoom functionality. Since optical zoom is a hardware-based zoom solution, you can expect to retain the details even when you're zooming in on the image. Bells and whistles make noise. We make phones. #OnePlus7Prohttps://t.co/ViZaz53XXk pic.twitter.com/wIHg7fd7U4 — OnePlus (@oneplus) April 25, 2019 Optical zoom capability isn't something that we've unheard of. In fact, we already have smartphones like the Huawei P30 Pro that touts 5x and even 10x optical zoom. That being said, it'll be interesting to see what OnePlus has managed to pull off here with the OnePlus 7 Pro. Before we take a look at the camera samples shared online, here's a quick look at some other noteworthy features of the OnePlus 7 Pro's camera - 0.3 seconds or less shutter lag 10x digital zoom support Auto HDR enabled by default “Natural” portrait mode Anyway, here are the camera samples - While speaking to WIRED, OnePlus imaging director Simon Liu said the OnePlus 7 Pro has a shot at competing with the first tier phones. “I don't think we can beat them, but the imaging world is always subjective”, said Liu.
  17. The OnePlus 7 Pro is one of the smartphones being launched on 14th May and it has already managed to score points for one of its features. According to OnePlus, the OP 7 Pro has managed to achieve an A+ Top Tier Display Rating from Display Mate. The company is the leading organisation that evaluates displays on various devices and gives results according to a series of comprehensive in-depth lab tests and measurements. © Twitter OnePlus claims that their latest smartphone scores are exceptionally well when it comes to colour accuracy, contrast accuracy, pixel density and brightness. Users will also have the ability to adjust the colour gamut of the display and the temperature for ease of viewing. The OnePlus Pro also got a certification of 'Safety for Eyes' from VDE Testing and Certification Institute. The smartphone is said to filter out harmful blue lights better than other displays and the new adjustable display features are said to aid in eye protection further. The launch event for the OnePlus 7 series is scheduled to take place on 14th May and will be held in three cities i.e. New York, London and Bangalore and will start at 8:15 PM IST. According to rumours, the OnePlus 7 Pro is going to have a QHD+ 90 Hz AMOLED display and will be as expensive as flagship devices. © Twitter The OnePlus 7 is being touted as the company's biggest launch ever and is being held in the Bangalore. Being the home-ground for the company, we can expect the launch to be larger than any other OnePlus launch we've ever seen from the company. OnePlus was recently included in the top five premium brands list by Counterpoint Research and we can expect to see some sort of celebration at the event. Being the biggest event by OnePlus, the company is also selling launch event voucher for fans that will go on sale on 25th April at 10:00 AM. You can buy the tickets for the Indian launch event at OnePlus.in (www.OnePlus.in). The company has given some hints about the launch in their official video which went live with the launch date announcement. You can have a look at the video below for your reference:
  18. The Huawei P30 Pro is probably one of the only smartphones out there that actually does everything it advertises. It's got a great camera system and performs like a beast when it comes to daily usage. The smartphone boasts a unique design and some features that are simply unheard of on smartphone ever before. Smartphones can either innovate or improve upon features that are already present on most devices. We reviewed the Huawei P30 Pro and rated it as one of the best smartphones for photography. However, there are a few features that we would like to highlight that stand out from everything else we've used this year. Here are our favourite features on the P30 Pro that makes it one of the greatest devices of this year: SuperZoom Camera © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Huawei P30 Pro is able to capture details even when you are far away from your subject. The smartphone supports 5x optical zoom and a massive 10x hybrid zoom (OIS +EIS). However, the smartphone can also zoom up to 50x and can take images of the moon easily. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Our sample image is proof enough that this smartphone can do much more than any other smartphone right now. Imagine being at a cricket game and being able to capture the image of a player from the stands with impressive clarity, the P30 Pro can do that. It Has Awesome Battery Life © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The P30 Pro comes with a 4,200 mAh battery that can be fast charged with Huawei's 40W charger. It even supports 15W wireless charging if you want to go cord-free. In our review, the smartphone easily gave us 9-10 hours on screen-on time which is quite impressive for any smartphone in 2019. Huawei was the first company to introduce reverse-wireless charging and the same tech is also available on the P30 Pro. You can reverse charge accessories like the AirPods or even a toothbrush if you will. An Immersive Display © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Huawei P30 Pro comes with a 6.47-inch FHD+ OLED panel that is perfect for watching movies and playing games. This time around, Huawei is using a smaller notch design instead of what we see on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Sure, the display may not be as good as a Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus' display but it comes quite close. Dual-View Videos © YouTube Still photography is great on the P30 Pro but it can also shoot two videos at the same time. The Huawei P30 Pro basically uses the main telephoto lens and the wide-angle lens to get a clear view of your subject. The phone will display both videos on the screen where you get to see a wider view and a zoomed in version as well. If you attend many concerts, this feature is a life-saver for capturing those moments and reactions. The One Feature That Was Missing © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla To be honest, the only disappointing feature on the Huawei P30 Pro is the absence of the headphone jack. Some would say that EMUI is probably one of the biggest turnoffs, however, we can always adjust that with custom launchers and icons. As an audiophile, I dearly miss headphone jacks on smartphones simply because of the raw warm sound from analogue headphones and speakers. Bluetooth earphones are great for convenience but often lack proper sound quality.
  19. OnePlus is all set to unveil its new OnePlus 7 series of flagship phones on May 14th. And now, in a typical OnePlus style, the company has started slowly teasing the features, and the first teaser has seemingly confirmed what the rumours have claimed so far. OnePlus posted a 10-second teaser clip on social media that says “bells and whistles make noise.” OnePlus “makes phones.” While the teaser itself doesn't show the full design of either of the phones that are expected to launch, it does confirm that at least of the phones in the series will have three cameras at the back. Here's the teaser - Bells and whistles make noise. We make phones. #OnePlus7Prohttps://t.co/ViZaz53XXk pic.twitter.com/wIHg7fd7U4 — OnePlus (@oneplus) April 25, 2019 The fact that the upcoming OnePlus phone carries a triple-camera setup shouldn't come as a surprise if you've been following the rumors around these new phones. Several trusted sources have provided plenty of information on the same. If the rumors are to be believed, then you can expect at least one of them to be a 48MP sensor, which is said to be paired with an 8MP and a 16MP wide-angle lens. This will be the first time a OnePlus phone will have three cameras, which is very exciting. © Twitter As we've said in the past, OnePlus really needs to fix its cameras. The cameras on the previous OnePlus cameras are not bad, but they're certainly nowhere near the competition. That's pretty much the only thing that's stopping OnePlus' phones from being perfect devices. Well, let's hope it changes this year
  20. Considered to be one of the greatest talents to have ever placed his foot inside the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) ring, Phillip Jack Brooks aka CM Punk made a comeback to pro wrestling five years later since bidding adieu to the business in 2014. However, it was the way in which the former ECW superstar made his comeback to the sport that was unexpected. While a lot of his fans had hoped for the 'Straight-Edge' wrestler's return to wrestling with WWE, Punk decided to make it a smaller affair. To get you on pace with the story, in an MKE Wrestling event called 'The Last Knight' on Friday, a masked man interfered with one of the fights of the evening and hit one of the wrestlers with CM Punk's signature move, the 'Go To Sleep' or the GTS, kneeing him in the head. CM Punk Returned to pro wrestling and this was his big return 𤣠wow ð® CM Punk! CM Punk! #wwe #aew #cmpunk pic.twitter.com/DQc6fR1IvY — Mr. Extra™ï¸ (@WWEMrExtra) April 21, 2019 What made the fans believe that the mystery man want indeed CM Punk was the hoodie he was wearing at the time of the “assault” because earlier in the day, Punk was seen wearing a similar hoodie while attending a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament in the neighbourhood. While the star has neither confirmed nor denied the theory, Wrestling Inc., a well-renowned wrestling news site has shown credibility to it. According to the site, plans were made for Punk to take off his mask after the attack but the star apparently decided otherwise at the last moment. After the self-proclaimed “best in the world” had left Vince McMahon's company in pursuit of a career in MMA he had said that if he were to return to pro wrestling, it would not be on a big stage like WWE of Japan's Ring of Honor (RoH) but a smaller more localised organization. CM Punk is the kind of guy who has the charisma of a champion and a fan following big enough to make any wrestling show draw in major sponsors and make it a big hit. If he is indeed back to the wrestling business, all of us are in for a treat.
  21. Huawei launched a new smartphone that defies everything we've known so far about smartphone cameras. At first, we didn't believe in the hype ourselves until we got to use the smartphone for ourselves. The P30 Pro can take pictures in almost every environment and can even take detailed images of the moon. The P30 pro is not only about offering great cameras, but it also features great design, awesome performance and impressive battery life. The P30 Pro may just be the perfect smartphone every company has been trying to make in the past decade. So, let's find out why the Huawei P30 Pro is probably the only smartphone you want to look at this year: Design & Display When it comes to the design of the smartphone the first thing you will notice is the gradient colours. We have seen the Chinese company breathe new life to smartphones with their Honor branded smartphones and the Mate 20 Pro, and it seems like the company is looking to continue that tradition. We got to use both the Aurora Blue and Breathing Crystal variants and they both looked absolutely stunning. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla When you look beyond the colours, the Huawei P30 Pro is not particularly a small device. It has a 6.47-inch display and has curved edges similar to the Mate 20 Pro. The edges on the back of the smartphone also have a curved profile giving it a much ergonomic feel that its predecessor. Overall, the design is impressive, however, the P30 Pro is quite prone to scratches on both sides. We would recommend you use the supplied cover to protect the phone from any damages you may incur overtime. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla When it comes to the display, the 6.47-inch FHD+ AMOLED display has a smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro as it does not have the same sensors for facial recognition. Face unlock does work on the P30 Pro but it isn't as reliable as the Mate 20 Pro or the iPhone XS. The display is also used as a loudspeaker instead of having a traditional grille for audio output. You may find it weird at first, however, we got used to it in a matter of days. The AMOLED display quality is excellent where the colours are vibrant and have balanced contrasts. The sharpness is also quite impressive if you like to watch movies and play games. Having said that, we did find the hue on the display on the cooler side which could be annoying for some users. Software © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The smartphone is powered by Huawei's Kirin 980 chipset that is particularly fast and works in tandem with Huawei's EMUI. Having said that, EMUI is a quite bloaty skin that is particularly not clean. Even though we've not been fond of EMUI in the past, the P30 Pro comes with some cool AI features such as an AI video editor (similar to Google Photos), scene detection features for the camera app. It even comes with digital well-being features such as a downtime feature for applications. When you reach your limit for a particular app, the screen turns grey preventing you from doing what you were meant to stop. The P30 Pro also comes with another nifty feature i.e. a Digital Car Key. Basically, you can use the P30 Pro to use as a key for select Audi cars. You can even start the engine with your smartphone. Alas, we did not get to test this feature, however, you can read up more literature about this on Audi and Huawei's website Camera © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The star attraction of the Huawei P30 Pro is its impressive camera setup. It's touted to have incredible digital photography capabilities and for good reason. The array on the back has a 40MP 27mm f/1.6 wide-angle main sensor, a 20MP ultra wide-angle 16mm f/2.2 and an 8MP 5x optical periscope zoom lens, plus a ToF lens. The zoom lens on the P30 Pro is one of the most impressive sensors we've seen as it can do image stabilisation even when zoomed in well over 10x. The P30 Pro uses OIS + EIS at the same time to achieve this feat. Of course, the quality does drop down a bit when you exceed the zooming parameters, however, it is still the best we've ever seen on a smartphone. We could even capture some very accurate and detailed shots of the moon with 50x zoom. You can see the clarity in the photo samples below. Huawei has partnered with Leica to make some of the most impressive we've ever seen. The new sensors are called SuperSpectrum sensors that use RYYB instead of the traditional RGB. Yellow has been used in place of green as it can take in both red and green lights. The sensor is capable of capturing more information and clearer images. Having said that, not everything is peachy here as when you take images of flora, there is considerable saturation which is entirely accurate when it comes to real colours. The Huawei P30 Pro is also incredible at taking low-light images, especially in the night. The light sensitivity ISO goes up to 400,000 which is completely unheard of on a smartphone. You can take some incredible night shots using the Night Mode, which works similar to what you find on Google Pixel 3. It basically takes multiple frames at different levels of exposure and then combines them into a single image. The ToF sensor basically comes in handy when you want to capture the depth or take portrait images from your smartphone. It can read objects and gets a better idea of the subject in front of the camera. The ToF sensor records how long it takes for the light to hit the object in front of the smartphone. This resulted in some awesome portrait images, however, did not work as advertised in dark environments. P30 Pro Camera Samples Performance The Huawei P30 Pro is powered by the Kirin 980 chipset which is also the Chinese company's flagship processor. In terms of RAM, the smartphone comes with 8GB of RAM and a Mali-G76 MP10 GPU for gaming. We encountered no issues when it came to the smartphone's performance and gaming was a breeze as there were no noticeable frame rate drops. We managed to play PUBG in high settings but we enjoyed playing Fortnite more due to the smooth graphics. The P30 Pro also comes with a proprietary file transfer system which basically is faster in reading/write speeds than anything we've seen so far. In terms of benchmark tests, our review unit was able to achieve a score a respectable 3292 in the single-core test while it scored 9657 in the multi-core test. Battery Life © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The P30 Pro has a 4,200 mAh battery and we managed to get 8-9 hours of screen-on time. The smartphone supports 40W fast charging and 15W wireless charging. Much like the Mate 20 Pro, you can even turn on the reverse wireless charging feature to charge other devices such as the new AirPods or the Galaxy Buds. The battery life on the P30 Pro is probably one of the best we've seen on an Android smartphone. The P30 Pro easily lasted more than 17 hours on a single charge and our usage included heavy gaming, GPS navigation, texting, internet browsing and even reverse wireless charging at times.
