10.or G first impressions: budget smartphone with dual rear cameras

Leave a Comment
10.or G was launched in India around couple of months back. It was preceded by an entry-level device, the 10.or E. For the uninitiated, 10.or is a new online-only smartphone brand entering the market exclusively via Amazon.

10.or G front

The smartphone comes in black and grey color variants (we have the former one). Concerning specifications, the device features a full HD display and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 octa-core processor. It comes with a 5.5-inch screen. There are two variants of the device based on the RAM and storage, one with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB internal memory, and the other with 4 and 64 gigs combination. We have the higher variant with us. The storage is expandable up to 128 GB via the microSD card slot. The device runs on Android Nougat 7.1.2 and packs a 4,000 mAh battery.

The smartphone features a display with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. The three standard buttons for Menu, Home, and Back are placed on the screen (same as the E) resulting in the wastage of a lot of space at the bottom bezel. Additionally, there is a 16 MP front-facing camera lens located above the display, to the right of the earpiece grille, which is itself in the center. The LED flash is located to the left of the earpiece. The notification indicator LED, and the ambient light sensor is placed at the right of the sensor.

10.or G primary cameras

The smartphone's hardware includes Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 octa-core (8x2.2 GHz) processor and dual 13 MP rear cameras with dual tone LED flash located beside the camera lens'. Above the camera lens lies the secondary noise-cancellation microphone. Below the camera is the circular fingerprint sensor, which delivers more misses than hits. Below the fingerprint module is the 10.or branding. The top antenna line is placed in between the microphone and the cameras, and the bottom antenna line is below the branding.

10.or G left and right

The right side of the device features the power key (located on the top) and the volume rocker key (located below it). The hybrid SIM tray is found on the left side of the device. One of the two nano SIM slots is hybrid; only one slot supports 4G LTE at any instance in time.

10.or G bottom and top

The 3.5 mm headset jack is on the top left. The micro USB port is at the bottom center. The speaker grille and the primary microphone are placed on either side. The right grille houses the speaker, while the left one is a decoy for the microphone. The other speaker is located on the top of the phone without any grille.

10.or G features a metal unibody design, i.e., the rear panel is non-removable. The device has rounded corner, while the display is pointed.
