  • Excellent semi flagship smart phone

    Been using LG v40 thinq for last 3 month, excellent back cameras, excellent screen, even more excellent audio. Unfortunately it has one big bug, can't receive call while on LTE network. More unfortunate, the phone is a 2nd set from AT&T USA. And there is no way to update the software which dated back in 2018. Usable for other thing but can't receive call. So enter the P30.

    There was 7.7 sale on Lazada Malaysia with P30 selling for MYR1499 or ~350USD.

    Compared to LG v40, P30 is better on battery life, faster charging 22w, better 32mp selfie camera, 3x optical zoom, better night mode.
    Extremely fast face recognition. Gesture navigation is fast and fluid, with very minimal lag.

    LG v40 is better in audio, both have 3.5mm earphone jack, traditional back fingerprint sensor is faster and accurate compared to P30 in screen sensor. Always on screens on v40 has many options, style as compare to P30 one and only style.

  • My first proper flagship

    My 1st proper flagship from any manufacturer. Bought used obviously.

    Bought as a replacement to Meizu 16x that suddenly has camera malfunction, so not able to get any autofocus. Generally I still prefer Meizu 16x due to notchlessess design, compact body and excellent video OIS. And battery life is excellent even with 3100mAh.

    Better on LG v40; wide angle camera, marginally faster processor, excellent sound >Boombox speaker, Quad DAC , DTS surround, 3.5mm Jack, come with earphone inside box. Micro SD slot. Thanks LG. Amoled screen is nice too but not better than Meizu 16x. A lottttt of customization but strangely no gesture type of navigation.

    Bad points> Poor battery life even worst than smaller capacity battery in Meizu 16x and Meizu x8. No obvious advantage of QHD resolution, even make battery life worsen, luckily can switch to FHD. Non programmable Google button. Poor front camera and zoom camera quality, no proper night mode, video stabilization no very effective.

  • Excellent notchless smartphone

    Kudos to Meizu for staying loyal to notchless design. Upgrading from Meizu x8 which I bought 8 months ago. They have similar 710 processor but somehow 16x just feels faster and more responsive in every aspect.

    The main reason for upgrading is the constant failure of Meizu x8 to lock satellite for navigation and other purposes.

    Surprisingly the battery on 16x last longer than x8 even though the capacity is slightly lower 3100 vs 3200 mAh. And charge faster too.

    The overall camera image quality is not significantly better than x8 but x2 and x3 zoom definitely looks better, more details than x8. Even macro shot is better because focusing distance is closer on 16x. Video stabilization now available with OIS.

  • Excellent midrange phone, cheapest SD660.

    Feels extremely smooth to use. Almost no lag at all. Bright, punchy coloured screen. Extremely fast finger print sensor and facial recognition unlock.
    Excellent good camera in good light, good camera in low light. Selfie camera above average but with strong beautification.
    LTE, wifi and Bluetooth connections are excellent.
    Good enough battery life for whole day. With relatively fast charging.
    Very loud sound from loud speaker and 3.5mm earphone jack port.

  • Relatively small but powerful midranger

    Bought this to replace my Cubot x18 plus which has 4000mah. Surprisingly the 3200mAh perform almost similar to the bigger battery but very old chipset in x18 plus. Shorter, slimmer, lighter easier to hold. Notch not really bothering me. Excellent camera in good light, good enough selfie, acceptable low light performance. Loud speaker is loud enough, excellent sound through earphone and Bluetooth headset. 4g connection is good, but not excellent, wifi connection is excellent so far.
    Charging less than 2 hours. Really like the m-back button for navigation.

    Don't like; screen dimming excessively in low light, difficult to see under bright sun light under auto screen.
    No 4g/3g sign on main screen, has to drag down the notification bar all the way down to see whether I am in 4g/3g mode.

  • Excellent rugged phone with big memory

    Going for the built in 128gb memory. Out of the box still have 110gb of built in storage. Not testing waterproof function. Using it as a normal phone. Has surprisingly loud external speaker. 3.5mm jack is a good inclusion for device that has usb-c port. Battery slightly better than my Cubot x18 plus.

    The only real bad side is the front facing camera and overly simplified camera apps. Other shortcoming are quite acceptable.

    Positives
    • Good battery life
    • Good main camera
    • Fairly light for rugged phone
    • Attractive design, suitable for daily use

    I bought this Cubot x18 plus as a replacement for my old Lenovo K6 note. It cost 130USD during Gearbest flash sale, almost half the price of K6 note when I bought it 1 years ago.
    The improvements I get ;
    Sound from earphone and Bluetooth speaker is definitely louder on X18 plus
    Slightly faster processor than K6 note Snapdragon 430 processor
    Bigger, taller screen
    Slightly better battery life

    Downgrade ;
    Both front and back camera, K6 note slightly better
    even with higher resolution on x18 plus
    Loud speaker slower and have distorted sound on high volume

  • Good for the intended use.

    Specifically bought this Ulefone mix as a back up phone. Mostly use it for Spotify, YouTube, Web browsing, FB. The most surprising feature is actually the screen. Extremely bright screen, with good contrast and colours. HD resolution is all I need. Even FHD screen felt over kill on 5.5 inch screen. 54gb usable built in memory is a bonus.
    Never, ever buy this for its camera.
    The positve ; one of the most good looking phone that I ever have.
    Button on left side, perfect for left hander like me. Maybe the designer is a left hander to

    Already use this K6 note for almost 1 year. No sign of slowdown or hardware problem yet. Might last another year. Looking forward to K8 note as replacement , hopefully end of 2018.
    Generally has quite boring, unremarkable design but as daily phone it never let me down.
