The Redmi 3S Prime no doubt is a very good handset with a very good price tag
Xiaomi launched the Redmi 3S and the Redmi 3s prime. This is the Redmi 3S Prime review, there is not much of a difference between the Redmi 3S and the 3S Prime, apart from the price, RAM/ROM and fingerprint sensor.

In terms of design. there is very little to differentiate between the Redmi 3s Prime and the Redmi Note 3. If you ignore the difference in the placement of the front facing camera and sensors on top of the display or that of the rear camera and flash, it is pretty much a compact version of the Redmi Note 3. The metal body is curved at the edges, which makes it quite slippery but the compact size ensures that it fits well in the hand.
Xiaomi had made a big deal about it in the redmi note 3 but somehow forgot about it in the Redmi 3s Prime. Having said that, there is no doubt that the Redmi 3s Prime is one of the most premium smartphones in the sub-Rs 10,000 price bracket, just like the Redmi Note 3. The speaker grille is at the bottom of the back. The physical buttons for volume and power are on the right, while the hybrid SIM slot is on the left. The phone accepts one Micro-SIM and another Nano-SIM or microSD card for storage. Unfortunately, this means that users will have to choose between a second SIM and a microSD card.
Under the hood, the Redmi 3S and Redmi 3S Prime both pack the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 (MMB29) processor, with four cores clocked at 1.1GHz and four cores at 1.4GHz, plus an integrated Adreno 505 GPU. Apart from the fingerprint sensor, the only differences between the Xiaomi Redmi 3S and Redmi 3S Prime are the amounts of RAM and storage. The Redmi 3S features 2GB of RAM with 16GB of inbuilt storage, while the Redmi 3S Prime has 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

The Xiaomi Redmi 3S Prime sets a standard for other smartphones in the same price band. We didn't face any lags while multitasking on this device, and there were no noticeable frame rate drops while playing games like Asphault.
Apps loaded quickly and the screen responded to touches without any complaints. The only issue that we faced was occasional restarts while running benchmarks, which is a repetition of what happened during the review of the Redmi Note 3. There was no heating while charging the phone or talking on calls. The phone did heat up a bit while using the camera app, but it never became too uncomfortable to use. We encountered no issues while talking for long hours on the phone.

The quality of sound through the speaker at the back of the handset was impressive, except that it went flat at maximum volume with no stereo effect. We did check the quality of music through our own wired earphones and we were not disappointed. There are plenty of tweaking options for music lovers.

The camera is nothing worth writing home about either. The front facing 5-megapixel camera gives out grainy results under most lighting conditions. The rear 13-megapixel camera is slightly better, but it isn’t something that you would get printed. Well, who does that anyway these days. Photos in low light conditions are grainy again and even in good lighting come out to be soft when zoomed in. It seems good camera sensors haven’t yet percolated to entry-level smartphones. And that’s really a pity for smartphones like the Redmi 3s Prime.Camera quality is above average.

The Redmi 3S Prime no doubt is a very good handset with a very good price tag, however it does not come with fast charging support and the Snapdragon 430 hardware is not as powerful as the Snapdragon 650 hardware redmi note 3 is using.
Redmi 3S prime cannot play 4K videos smoothly, Redmi Note 3 can. Also when you compare the benchmarks there is a good difference. Having said that the 3S is still a very good buy, you will hardly notice any difference in performance with you daily usage though technically Note 3 is powerful.

Moto e3 Power is a great budget smartphone, one that offers excellent battery life and fluid performance.
The budget smartphone space is heating up with Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 3 and Redmi 3s setting a benchmark. Here is our first impressions of the super budget offering from Motorola

Design and Display: Moto e3 Power follows the same design we seen on Moto G4 and G4 Plus. The front is very much a standard affair. There is a 5-inch display placed between and the earpiece and speaker. The earpiece and speaker are narrower than before, and they don’t hide stereo speakers, which is a letdown for me. And there is no fingerprint sensor. The plastic back is textured which feels reassuring, and features volume rocker and power button at the right, a microUSB port at the bottom and yes, headphone jack at the top.

Moto e3 has a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels. The display is neither sharp nor extremely bright, but it is well improved over the qHD (960 x 540 pixels) display found on Moto E2. The display is doing good under direct sunlight, The superior auto-brightness feature working very well. The display is also decent for watching YouTube.

Processor, Memory and Battery: Moto e3 Power gets the guts of a MediaTek processor. I used the device for a full day, I didn’t find any noticeable difference in terms of speed or performance. The MediaTek chipset coupled with 2GB RAM is running the devicevery smooth with good user experience. Moto e3 Power is ideal for people who use their smartphone primarily for chatting, browsing the web, reading news and most importantly staying updated and with MediaTek chipset, all of that is easily accomplished.

With Moto e3 Power, we get a very basic camera that delivers in broad daylight and while the software is normal and not making any extra efforts to bring a better lights and colorts in the photo. The camera is also not quick, there is a noticeable shutter lag which I can see. The bright picture here is the new 5MP front camera. It shots decent.

If you are going to love something about Moto e3 Power, then it will be its software. Moto e3 Power runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow (yeah, no Nougat) with near stock Android experience.

Not good for this price.
Here is my review about Xperia M5.
The phone design is looking good and having good feel to hold it on hand, but looks just like any other Sony smartphone released in the last three years.
like in other sony phones, The front and back sides are very flat, while the sides are rounded with prominent corners. And it made of mostly from plastic, which means it feels less fancy than any other phones at this price.
It has the waterproof which is an advantage to buy this phone.
The display is so good and bright with more colors. The videos are playing like a gem.
Just like any other sony phones, Both front end and back cameras are superb, speakers are so vibrant and noise-free.
The battery is just 2600mhs which seems very low for a high-budget phone. The battery life is being claimed to be two days, but, it seems it is not upto that level, it drained fully with in a day for an average usage.

A budget phone winner!
Xiaomi Redmi 3S comes with 2GB RAM/16GB storage, while the Redmi 3S Prime has 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. The 2GB Redmi 3S doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner on the back, unlike the Redmi 3S Prime. Given the pricing, the Redmi 3S and its Prime version are a new offering in the budget segment from Xiaomi.
In terms of specifications, Redmi 3S and 3S Prime have a 5-inch HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor, 13 MP primary camera and a 5 MP secondary camera. The battery is 4100 mAh. Xiaomi Redmi 3S runs MIUI 7 based on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and will come in Gold, Grey and Silver colour options. I’ve been using the Redmi 3S Prime, (the 3GB RAM version), and here’s my first impression of the phone.

The Design of the phone is almost similar to Redmi Note 3. the phone is incredibly light when you hold it, and it doesn’t feel bulky at all. With the smaller HD resolution display, the Snapdragon 430 processor. But Xiaomi has kept the metal unibody design as the same, and this price-point it is unusual to find a smartphone that looks so good. However the Redmi 3S Prime costs only Rs 1000 less than the 16GB version of the Note 3.
This phone has a more compact 5-inch display. Yes, the HD resolution feels underwhelming but not feeling like full HD, but it is still a very good display from Xiaomi.
On the overall performance front, the Redmi 3S Prime has so far proved to be more than adequate. Games like Asphalt 8 run smoothly on this, with no heating, and I’ve not yet faced any app crashes. But I’m going to spend some more time with the software and the phone, to see how it continues to perform.
The rear camera is 13MP, and I tried to make shots in varied lighting conditions. However, the few shots with lower lights are not upto that level but still good. The camera is fast, with no shutter-lag, and focuses quickly.
The interesting is the battery in the Redmi 3S phones is slightly bigger than the one in Redmi Note 3 at 4100 mAh. I say interesting, because . The battery size means this phone won’t die anytime soon.

A good phone with no surprising features.
Sony has made a new model at the top of its M class of smartphones, the Sony Xperia M5. It looks very similar to the Xperia Z3+, but is not quite as well-equipped on the inside. Its standout feature is a very promising front-facing camera, nothing else.
Sony might have given the Xperia M5's appearance just like any other Z series device, but the frame is made of plastic, not metal, leaving the M5 feeling cheaper than the Z3+. The build is, however, completely waterproof and dustproof.
The display is excellent and clear, and reproduces colors brilliantly. The contrast and color range are extensive and rich and the image quality comes close to UHD screens. It is having a 5-inch IPS panel with a full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels and a pixel density of 441 ppi. It exceeds the average resolving power of the human eye :).
Unlike the Sony's Z series, the Xperia M5 does not come with headphones. The in-built speakers are are very norma and offer mono rather than stereo sounds. The maximum volume is also quite low.
The Sony Xperia M5 cameras are clearly its strong point. The main camera delivers high-contrast, sharp images in 21.5 MP and the selfie camera produces pleasing wide-angle shots in 13 MP. The quick-start function can be used to wake the phone from standby and go directly into the camera app. However the shots were not quick sometimes.
And the phone has 2,600 mAh battery, which is about average for a five-inch smartphone. I don't know why Sony is still keeping the battery power low in their devices while the screen size of them are increasing in every new models.

OnePlus 3 has premium build and specs, but costs significantly less than class leaders from Samsung, LG, HTC, and others.
OnePlus is a Chinese company that has been pushing into the U.S. slowly over the last few years. The OnePlus 3 — its third-generation flagship handset — is the company's most attractive and powerful offering yet. The 3 is also the most "available" handset from OnePlus, as U.S. consumers can buy it easily online if they wish.

I'm not going to say OnePlus copied the design of the iPhone 6 Plus or HTC 10, but the 3 strongly resembles both these phones. It has a simple, direct, metal-and-glass appearance. It was milled from a single block of aluminum and has antenna lines that run side-to-side across the back. The metal chassis forms the rear and side surfaces of the phone, with 2.5D glass on front. The 3 comes in graphite or gold. I could write these same sentences about the 6 Plus and 10. It's a good design, but far from an original one.

The display is one spec where the OnePlus 3 trails the Alcatel Idol 4S and ZTE Axon 7. It measures 5.5 inches across the diagonal and sticks with 1080p full HD, rather than quad HD. If you're not interested in using your phone for VR, the OnePlus 3 still manages to hold its own. The 3 has plenty of pixels for browsing the web, watching videos, and viewing Instagram imagery. I found everything was sharp enough. The phone uses what OnePlus calls Optic AMOLED screen technology, which is in turn protected by a slab of Gorilla Glass 4. The display is plenty bright, offers rich colors and contrast, and puts out enough light for easy outdoor use. Viewing angles are quite good; there's a bit of brightness drop, but no blue shift. The OnePlus 3 may not have as many pixels as its competitors, but the experience isn't lacking.
The OnePlus 3 suffices as a voice phone. Call quality is acceptable through the earpiece with little-to-no distortion, but the phone doesn't pump out enough volume. I was able to hear calls in my quiet home, a stationary car, and an empty mall with no issue, but it's nearly impossible to hold a conversation in a noisy coffee shop, moving car, or any other space with lots of background noise. Clarity could be better; The speakerphone delivers clarity that's on par with the earpiece. It also comes up weak as far as volume is concerned.

OnePlus gave the 3 what has become the standard-size battery for a device in this class: 3,000 mAh. If you need all-day power, the OnePlus 3 has you covered in spades. I found the battery consistently pushed through 1.5 days without breaking a sweat.
The 3 includes what OnePlus calls Dash Power. It is a variant of Qualcomm's QuickCharge technology. OnePlus claims a 30-minute charge will replenish over 60% of the 3's battery, allowing for more than 7 hours of HD video playback. It recharges very quickly. The phone doesn't support wireless charging.
The OnePlus 3 delivers a lot of bang for the buck and deserves your consideration.

Good phone in the mid-range price segment, having decent specifications and good design.
The phone Galaxy J7 (2016) having the usual Samsung design, rouded edges, sleek form factor which makes it easy to hold. The device has a removable back panel and a removable battery. The rear has the 13MP camera with LED flash and the front is having a 5MP camera equipped with LED flash well.
It features a 5.5-inch HD display with 1280x720 pixels resolution. The AMOLED display produces clear and vibrant colors, but not good under the sun light. The viewing angles are fine.
The phone is clocked with a 1.6GHz Octa-core processor and 2GB RAM. The internal storage of the handset is 16GB, also can be expanded upto 128GB. The device performed pretty good, smooth and much responsive. I haven't not faced any lags while playing games and HD videos. However, There was a bit slowness while streaming the videos from internet.
Galaxy J7 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. A very clean and user friendly interface. but still having the same old TouchWiz UI.
And the phone has a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front facing snapper for selfies. it managed to click some good images with decent amount of details. The selfie camera too was also shoot some nice images, even in low light conditions, the front facing flash is so great and bright. And the camera also has various new modes to enhance the photography experience.
The smartphone also equipped with S-bike mode. This feature mutes the phone automatically when the user is riding a two-wheeler, and sends a text to the caller to call later. The S-bike Mode feature will help the bikers to concentrate on the road while riding.
However, the user can also mark some contacts as important so that they cannot be ignored while driving.

A good moto phone with no extra features, but improved.
The Moto G4 Play has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 (MSM8916) processor inside it with 4x Cortex-A53 1.4GHz CPU and an Adreno 306 GPU. With that is 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM and a replaceable 2800mAh battery. For someone that’s effectively purchasing this smartphone as a burner, a replaceable battery might be right up their alley.

Battery life is good - a day of average use should be easy for for a normal user – and a replaceable battery means that switching out for a second pack could make for a long trip without charging :), but that is not we want.

Inside the Moto G4 Play is 16GB of internal storage which I feel less campared to other models in the market at this price. But, on the other hand, it a microSD card slot for storage expansion.

The display on Moto G4 Play is 5.0-inches, with 1280 x 720 pixels across it. This display works with IPS LCD technology and is decent.

This device is bit lighter than its G4 friends at 137 grams instead of 155 grams, and comes in at a slightly smaller overall size as well, so its handy to have on hand and feeling good.

Where the real descent in quality comes is the camera. Both the front and the back camera are OK. While the Moto G4 Play doesn’t come up as hot while shooting photos in dim lighting, standard room light for non-moving objects can be captured by the device just fine.

There’s no NFC here, nor any fingerprint scanner. There’s no 5GHz band Wi-fi, just 802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz. This phone is a device made to function at an above-average level in all of the very few feature it has.

Overall, A good product from Samsung at low price.
Here is my review :
This device is nice and a good phone at this price.
The 5.5 inch display is good but not AMOLED
And it feels heavy to hold the mobile and takes around 2 and half to 3 hours to get fully charged.
The camera quality is okay and taking good photos in low light.
The device gets a bit of heavy during heavy use.

A premium quality phone in low price with some disappointments.
The phone looks extremely stylish and premium. here are my reviews after using it for a week.
1) - Premium build Quality
2) - Good UI and its such a wonderful feeling to browse the phone (Very good Touch).
3) - battery charged at fast speed
4) - display is very good
1) Battery - Though Le1S boasts of 3000 mAh Battery, its very ulterior when compared to normal smartphones. On the first day i charged the phone upto 80% in the night and to my surprise by next morning it was 20%. This is ridiculous coz considering that i haven't used the phone at all in the night and once under 15% the battery discharges in super fast mode and you could literally see the percentage drop. Unfortunately and surprisingly the Screen Time takes the maximum share of the Battery, even though you are not operating the phone. The moment you switch between screens of use any of the social media app, you can literally see the battery discharging very fast. Because of the poor battery life the whole Premium feel of the phone gets lost.
2) Camera - Majority of the Smartphone comes with 13MP Rear and 5 MP Front, but again surprisingly, both the cameras are so Horrible that its impossible for you to take good pics unless supported by perfect light conditions. The 5MP front camera is the worst i have ever seen so far. It does not have many options unlike many budget phones. I still wonder as to what kind of R&D these guys have done before launching this phone.
3) Call Quality - Call quality is pretty average with lot of fluctuations. Initially i was under impression that it could be due to poor signal from either of the parties, but after lot of validation, i came to conclusion that its not the signal or service provider, but the phone itself has issues with call quality.

A low budget premium phone
Oppo R7 Lite sports an elegant metal unibody design and having premius look. It makes use of a magnesium aluminum alloy in the metal. The phone is just 6.3mm thick but the camera module on the rear side budgin out a slight bit. The 147g weight gives the phone a nice heft and the weight is well balanced all over the phone.
This phone was launched alongside its elder sibling – the Oppo R7 Plus. So it has all the mid-range feature set. Inside it, you have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC which has an octa-core processor along with Adreno 405 GPU. It comes up with a 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage space out of which around 10 GB is available to the user. You won't get the chance to expand the storage if you so wish. Thats a big drawback.
The phone comes up with a 5-inch 1280×720 pixel display which gives a 294ppi pixel density. When compared to other full HD display sporting phones, it may not sounds like much and crispy, but It is still able to give out a sharp display. Pixillation is visible only on extremely close observation and holding it at an arms length ensures that you are able to see crisp text. Being an AMOLED display, Watching movies and playing high-graphic games on this display is a pleasure.
The phone has a 13MP rear camera with an f/2.2 aperture whereas an 8MP front-facing camera with an f/2.4 aperture. The rear camera comes with phase-detect autofocus technology. The image quality is good in a good light conditions. The focus speed is pretty quick. However, at 100% viewing, the micro aspects of the scene such as boats in lakes, fine designs tend to show some dithering around the edges. The low light photographs are bit noisy too.
It comes with a 2,320 mAh battery and supports Qualcomm QuickCharge feature which paired with Oppo’s VOOC charging mechanism offers you speedy phone charging. The battery is okay for a day medium use.

A very good phone from sony but the price is bit high.
It's amongst the best big screen phones I have come across.
The phone display is pretty awesome and having great display and clarity.
The brightness is pretty nice, and Adaptive Brightness feature seems to work better
It is a delight to play games on this huge screen but its bit hard to handle the screen with one hand.
The rear camera is as usual good and front facing camera is one of the best I’ve seen on any smartphone. Surprisingly, front camera sports a wide-angle lens but rear does not.
The audio quality is supreme. No doubt sound is powerful enough, all thanks to stereo speakers! Also, the sound quality is crystal clear, and no distortion was experienced.
The battery is pretty good and can be used upto 2 days for a normal use. But It has a little bit of heating problem while playing heavy games.

Excellent Android Experience and great features and fabulous Camera
From my perspective, there isn't a better value than the Nexus 6p. I got the 32 gig black version and it is beautiful. The metal body is both aesthetically please and gives the phone a nice build that screams quality. From a user experience perspective, the phone is fast and responsive. There are no lags at all. The Snapdragon 810 processor is zippy and I have not had any overheating or throttling of the processor despite being a heavy user. The battery life is good. It is easy to root and unlock the bootloader, if you like to tinker. The Nexus line is really built for those of us who like to mess around but this Nexus is great for anyone. The camera, which has been the bane of Nexus phones of the past, is outstanding and on par with the Galaxy S6 plus. Not only do outside shots look great, low light photography is also very high quality on the 6p. As to the previous reviewer who had concerns about how the 6p worked with Exchange mail, I do not agree. I have work Exchange mail and calendars that work fine with the GMAIL app. If I didn't like that, I could use K9 mail or any of a dozen other exchange email apps available on Google Play that would easily address his concerns. Don't let his over concern about exchange or his other irritations sway you. The Nexus 6p is easily the best Nexus ever and it is easily as good as any of the ranking flagship phones today (S6, G4, V10, Note 5 etc).

Note 3 feels more like an incremental upgrade that disappoints with some things like faulty(rarely) fingerprint protection, more ram and screen size.
So far we’ve been rather impressed with Xiaomi’s line-up of products. The Chinese firm’s smartphones and cheerful Mi Band Pulse have given us hope that you can get great tech without paying a fortune.

The Note 3 is powered by a six-core Qualcom 650 system on a chip, which despite first appearances is a significant upgrade to the eight core CPU in the Note 2.
The Note 2 housed a 1.92GHz octa-core processor, namely the Mediatek MT6795 Helio X10, which sports eight ARM Coretx-A53 cores and a PowerVR graphics unit. The Note 3’s chip also has four Cortex-A53s clocked at 1.4GHz for background tasks, and a pair of newer Cortext-A72s running at 1.8GHz for performance.
The handset itself also operates at a snail’s pace. There is noticeable lag when opening applications and if you open multiple apps at once you will see that RAM figure in the task manager slowly whittle down to below “719MB of 2GB available” rather quickly.
If the 16GB storage feels less than ample you can add an SD Card for extra space. The only problem is that you lose the second SIM slot if you do – something that is a much desirable feature on this phone.

Frustration abounds:
The most noticeable addition to the Note 3 is a fingerprint scanner. Located at the back of the handset it functions in the same way that Huawei and LG’s does in that you simply need to place your finger in the right spot and the sensor will scan your digit.
The problem, we found, was that the scanner wasn’t as responsive as on other handsets and often failed to detect our digit correctly. Compared to phones from the last couple of years, it was a bit disappointing.

The camera sensor at the rear of the handset has been bumped up from a 13MP in the Note 2 to a 16MP in the Note 3. You’ll find the usual list of features including HDR, Panaorama and Beautify. The camera is good but its still not quite enough to make the Note 3 feel special.

The 4 000mAh Li-Po battery will give about two days of use if the phone is used for the occasional call, text and social media update. In practice, we found this equated to one full day of heavy use for web and mail, and around 6-8 hours of continuous movie watching and game playing. Which is, on the whole, satisfactory.
The Note 3 does have fast charging which can bring your battery up to full charge in just under three hours from empty.
