To start with uniqueness, the quad camera setup, NavIC, side mounted fingerprint sensor, haptic feedback, glassy finish all the factors makes the phone pretty cool.
Camera - The phone produces very good images using the 3 sensors(depth, macro, wide) according to customization along with the primary 48mp shooter. The image produced will be highly dependent on factors like light exposure, camera handling, mode selected etc. Video recording is available with EIS & 30 and 60fps. There is an option to record videos with movie scope. Overall 4.2/5
NavIC - The ISRO developed positioning system adds more accuracy while navigating. I really liked it and its our country's technology. 5/5
Design - The phone is packed with almost all sensors, no issues. The glassy finish, front and back gives the phone a premium look. Comes with Gorila Glass 5 protection in 3 layers. 4.5/5
Dedicated external memory slot - no need to buy a 128gb variant fearing the limited storage, can expand storage upto 512gb. 5/5
Network reception - i witnessed a commendable hike in download speed, so the NW reception is very good. 5/5
MIUI - Yes there were some preinstalled stuff which can be uninstalled easily. About the annoying ads and notifications, they could be disabled with some settings(available on many internet blogs). There where some minute bugs, which i'd expect to be sorted out with the next UI update. 3.8/5
Notch - The user can manage how the punch hole cam could appear according to his desire. I don't like to hide it, as it looks good for me. 4/5
Processor - RAM - The qualcomm snapdragon 720g with 2.3ghz clock speed makes the phone more reliable and very smooth. The RAM was able to retain the cache of previously opened apps for a noticeable amount of time, so switching between the apps now and then is not an issue the Processor and RAM pulls it off easily. 4.3/5
Speaker - earpiece - Both sound outputs are commendable. 4.3/5
Type c USB & 3.5mm headphone jack - Type C cable along with 18w charger, charges the phone within 2 hours from 10% to 100% without any heating issues. 33W adapter can obviously charge the device even faster, but it's not provided in the box. 4/5
Battery - With a whopping 5020mah battery a moderate user can use the device for more than 1.5 days with one time full charging. 5/5
Notification light - It was nice to see the notification light available. After stuffing so many sensors they did not forget to add that, appreciate that. 5/5
Gaming experience - I'm not a mobile gamer, so refresh rate is not a concern to me. Still the qualcomm snapdragon 720g processor can easily handle games like PUBG or COD with HDR graphics.
I haven't faced any kind of heating issues nor lags while using the camera.
Overall it's a very good phone, for this price range it is packed with commendable features and no compromise with the sensors.
