Realme 8 Pro Call performance

Realme 8 Pro Call performance

Realme 8 Pro Call performance is also good – which is overall no problem. Clear call quality can be enjoyed. The voice can also be heard well. I also had a chance to test it with the built -in GPS function for Google Maps. It is seen to be able to work well and can be said to be almost accurate in terms of the direction displayed. In the meantime, the location can also be tracked quickly once the application is opened.

Camera

One new thing to know here, the Realme 8 Pro uses a 108-Megapixel main sensor with Samsung ISOCELL HM2 sensor support. Guess, this is just the most noticeable improvement. Other sensors are still the same as a number of their previous smart gadget. It is followed by 8-Megapixel (ultra-wide) + 2-Megapixel (macro) + 2-Megapixel for monochrome purposes.

The main camera is able to work well. We think it can give satisfaction to the user himself when the capture for the picture is made. In terms of performance, the resulting image looks good with satisfactory sharpness. Not only that, the sharpness of there image is also seen Successfully well preserved and the coloring on it is also almost accurate when taken in bright situations.

Special Mode

Being custom to Realme devices, each of them will come with a special mode called “Chroma Boost”. By activating it, it will further increase the contrast in the picture and make the color more accurate. However, I don’t like to use it because the picture results are not neutral.

The camera on the Realme 8 Pro can also be zoomed up to 20X. But, the zoom result that feels good is only up to 3X zoom only. On the other hand, it is not recommended at all because the image will then become broken. Later, it will look blurry and even worse the details on it also start to disappear.

Realme 8 Pro Rear Camera Module

Realme 8 Pro Rear Camera Module. One more thing here, if you notice the design for the rear camera module feels very different. Through it, there are up to four different camera humps for each of the sensors. They are all arranged in a rectangular shape. At the same time, the design of this camera module also looks a bit out of the body. Of course, it cannot be placed flat on a table surface. This is because, this smart gadget will definitely be upside down a bit.

Moving to important buttons such as the power button and volume adjuster can be found on the right side. Then, on the left side there is space for a SIM slot. This slot supports up to three different card slots to facilitate the use of microSD and dual-SIM cards simultaneously. For connectivity, the Realme 8 Pro uses a USB-C connection port and still provides a 3.5mm audio jack that is placed on the bottom along with the connection port earlier.

Display

This article continues to the front. The flat screen with perforated panels on the Realme 8 Pro has an ideal size. The screen is a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED with FHD+ resolution and supports 60Hz. If you remember, this is also the same offer found on the previous Realme 7 Pro model. In terms of quality, the screen description is quite good but nothing special. FHD+ resolution is already practically standard for any device in the same class.

Realme 8 Pro Is Finally Official

Realme 8 Pro Is Finally Official

Realme 8 Pro is finally official for users in Malaysia. Looking at the patent arrangements, Realme introduces new devices under the series for every six months. So we can expect them to introduce another new series offering in the next six months. Turning to the Realme 8 Pro, the beginning of its introduction became the focus of many. Why presumably? The answer is in this review article. Commenting further on its simple specifications, it is another smart device with a Snapdragon 720G chip in Malaysia for 2021.

Yes, the Snapdragon 720G chip. This is also the chip used by Realme since the previous Realme 6 Pro offering. However, Realme’s focus for this time is on the capacity of the camera with a higher sensor that is 108-Megapixels. In addition, the brand also makes 50W fast charging support as another selling point for this device. How to specify it in the real world? I will discuss in this review article. However, friendly said you have your own right to judge. Okay, let’s keep reading

Review

It seems to have become commonplace, most devices from Realme use plastic -based builds. Just like this Relme 8 Pro itself. This smart device still uses a plastic back panel. But, the finish here has a rather interesting texture. Clearly, Realme uses a slope color finish to further enhance the draw on this smart device so that it looks more beautiful. When held, the finish here feels rough with the ‘DARE TO LEAP’ logo and shiny realme.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite Camera Quality

Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite Camera Quality. A relatively conservative camera system is used with wide -angle, ultra -wide -angle and macro -only lenseas used. The quality of pictures taken using the main lens is good especially if there is perfect lighting. Sharp images with vivid color reproduction are only slightly yellow with the actual situation.

When the zoom done, we noticed a noticeable color difference. You can see for yourself the color fades slightly at the 2X zoom setting. At the 10X setting the image starts to become broken and blurry. The detail disappears along with the color becoming lifeless. Without OIS, the viewfinder starts to falter, making it difficult to get the desired image.

Indoor Quality

In an indoor place the picture quality is satisfactory only if you are a light source, the sharpness of the picture is slightly lost. The HDR mode on this device is not comparable to the landmark device but this is unforgivable as it is comparable to other landmark class devices ever reviewed. Macro mode also does not disappoint. Lastly the night mode satisfactory only a fairly noticeable noise.

In conclusion the capabilities of the Mi 11 Lite’s camera are satisfactory for a middle class device. The absence of a dedicated telephoto lens felt good photos can only taken up to the 2X zoom setting only at our expense.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite Interface Elements

Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite Interface Elements

Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite interface elements are now actually closer to native Android with some customizations that we feel are better than those used on Native Android. An example is a multi-task screen that displays more applications in one screen and vertically. On MIUI the process of selecting applications opened 7-8 past applications is easier and faster due to the lack of need to scroll. From the same screen the user can access the virus scanning feature in the device and clear storage as well as RAM usage. For those who subscribe to Netflix, HD resolution content can be streamed because the device is equipped with Widevine L1 DRM system.

Features

This additional feature does not exist on Native Android but is provided as standard. Usually when this is done the device will be slow (do you still remember with TouchWiz?) But on MIUI 12 the usage experience is almost perfect. Opened applications do not undergo a refresh process or are closed aggressively to reduce RAM usage.

The advertising issue that made us hate MIUI has also been resolved. There are still a few but the process of deactivating them is now much clearer. MIUI at once we no longer included in the list of operating systems; that made us want to punch the wall.

It’s smooth, fast, beautiful, neat; and most importantly more in line with what’s on offer on Native Android but with useful additions. Examples are Second Space, Dual App, Game Turbo and Lite Mode.

Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite Super Battery. The 4250 mAh battery supports 33W fast charging via USB-C port. The charger is also included by Xiaomi with every purchase. In 2021, Xiaomi still believes consumers still want a charger with every purchase. The charger provided is also faster when compared to those supported on Samsung and Apple flagship devices.

All power and volume buttons are placed on the right side. The construction feels sturdy with a finish that doesn’t feel fancy even though it’s made of plastic material. On this power button is placed a physical fingerprint scanner. It works fast but is not very left -handed user friendly. Scanners often fail to scan the fingers of the left hand.

The situation changes when using the right hand and thumb is scanned. For those who need another biometry system, facial scans are provided. The system is fast but in our time of always wearing a face mask, it is becoming less and less used.

The back panel is made of glass which is also flat. The panel has a smooth finish that is extremely easy to trap dirt. It was so slippery that several times the Mi 11 Lite fell off the table. We are thankful to Xiaomi for also providing a silicone frame that is quite rough on its surface. In addition to protecting the device it also reduces the incidence of frequent slipping off the table.

Snapdragon Gen of Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite

Snapdragon Gen of Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite. The Snapdragon 732G processor is still relatively new as it was launched less than a year ago. With two Cortex A76 -based cores and six Cortex A55 -based cores, it is capable of offering mid -range performance that does not disappoint. On the performance scale it is below the Snapdragon 765G and above the Snapdragon 710. From the experience of reviewing other devices with the Snapdragon 732G chip, it is among the chips that do not cause problems just no 5G support only.

The 8GB of RAM memory is matched with 128GB of storage that can be expanded using a micro SD card up to 512GB. The micro SD card shares a slot with a nano -sized second SIM. So think about it if you want to use two nano SIMs; as it cannot be used if you want to add more storage.

The camera system is 64MP wide angle, 8MP ultra wide angle and 5MP for macros. No high -end optical telephoto system is included. Even when looking at Xiaomi, Poco and Redmi devices, they are not very fond of including telephoto systems. This is possible to reduce costs because in the Mi 11 family only the Mi 11 Ultra has high optical telephoto capability.

On the front, a 16MP camera is used and placed in a hole on the screen. Video recording capability is up to 4K 30FPS only or 1080P 120FPS. The camera design used is large and similar to that found on the Mi 11 but not tall. The device can still be used on a table; without swaying like a bus at the end of the movie The Italian Job.

There is no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy A series is a line of Samsung devices that are often equipped with premium features while providing innovation opportunities available to the general public. Recently, another device under the series was found leaking in some contagious mocking images. Mocking Images of Samsung Galaxy A Series.

The image share by @onleaks on the Voice page. If this mocking image is true, Samsung is intending to continue their all -new design on the series. It shows off the Samsung Galaxy A22 in a comprehensive black finish with no prism-like design anymore.

Next, the back panel has a rectangular camera module that loads three sensors along with LED Flash. Initial speculation says it will matched with 48-Megapixel, 8-Megapixel and 2-Megapixel sensors. Then, the front camera placed in a small notch on the front panel.

For now, it is still unknown when Samsung will introduce this device. Furthermore, Samsung itself has not issued any statement regarding this device.

Lite?

Although the Lite name is used, Xiaomi is not shy about the screen technology used. The 6.55 ″ screen used is not only from AMOLED output but supports 90Hz refresh rate. With an AMOLED screen, content with brighter colors and HDR can also be enjoyed. The only drawback is that this screen does not support adaptive refresh rates which are more battery efficient. If battery is important to you, there is the option of choosing 60Hz. The screen is pretty captivating with even color production and no issue of the displayed image not being smooth. Use under the scorching sun is also very satisfying as the screen is still easy to read.

Flat screen with a moderately thick bezel. According to the 2021 standard; the bezel on the screen may be arguably thick but does not interfere with the use of the device. A small -sized camera hole is placed in the upper left corner. Its existence disfigures the video viewing session and the first when using the entire screen. We know many are already accustomed to notches as well as holes on the screen, but for the visual purists the existence of these holes can be hidden but the forehead becomes too thick.

Samsung Galaxy A32 Brings Excellent Specs

Samsung Galaxy A32 Brings Excellent Specs

Samsung is a brand that prides itself on offering technology to consumers. Last month alone they seemed to be aggressively offering various devices and one of them in the A series family is the Samsung Galaxy A32 brings excellent specs and is able to put them far from other competitors.

If you are looking for a basic class phone with a solid design and performance guarantee, here are reasons why you should choose the Samsung Galaxy A32 over other smartphones.

Performance of the Helio G80 8-Core Chip

It is an obligation for every smartphone to have more cores to support multi-tasking functions (Multitasking). With a powerful chip, it can simultaneously ensure the smoothness of an application that is being used and does not interfere with the experience of using the device.

The Samsung Galaxy A32 is in keeping with its performance and class, where it uses an 8-core Helio G80 chip with graphics capabilities that can provide a seamless experience while playing popular games. This MediaTek chip is also the latest on the market, thus providing a long lifespan for this device.

8GB RAM fast memory & 128GB Built -in Storage

Completing the Samsung Galaxy A32 is a fairly large RAM capacity for its class of 8GB of RAM. This can also help users in ensuring the smooth use of the application; and also allows the application to operate behind an active interface.

If that’s in terms of RAM memory, the storage capacity of this device is also quite large in its class. It offers 128GB of built -in storage and at the same time provides more usage value as users can load various audio and video on this smartphone.

And if the 128GB capacity is still not enough, users can choose to add storage capacity up to 1TB via the SD-Micro card slot. In 2021 not many phones offer this feature and praise should be given to the Samsung Galaxy A32.

5,000 mAh Battery Capacity With 15W Fast Charging

Time is gold. Why waste time charging your device. In 2021, fast charging should be a must for all devices; and Samsung has also included that functionality on the Galaxy A32.

On the Samsung Galaxy A32, 15W fast charging is also offered; saving users time to charge the device with a battery capacity of 5,000 mAh. At this capacity, the battery can last a long time with a standby time of up to two days.

And you can say no to carrying a heavy and harassing power bank.

Poco F3 Loud Stereo Audio

Poco F3 Loud Stereo Audio

A Redmi K40 renamed the Poco F3, so of course the speakers are the same – the stereo system. Only the Poco F3 has no Dolby Atmos. What’s surprising in my opinion is whether or not Dolby is available for devices in this class seems to make no difference. Making the listening experience interesting is the audio quality is pretty good. Poco F3 Loud Stereo Audio.

It is balanced, loud, has a good and satisfying rumble. Watching movies, listening to music all just feels great. But what isn’t interesting is the weird voice level control. When the scroll is up it gets louder, that’s right. But scrolling down to lower is sometimes too slow and sometimes just fine.

Usually devices in this class I will use audio accessories. But the acceptable quality makes me prefer to use only what is already on offer.

Battery

Among the premium Poco devices available in the market are the Poco F2 Pro and Poco F3 only now. Poco F1, let’s forget and let’s start with a new one. The 4520mAh battery on some people is adequate and there is also a sense of inadequacy. But with the use of OLED screens, there is a 120Hz, powerful chip – a large battery will help increase the lifespan of use.

Via Poco F3, the setting I use is always 120Hz, mostly screen brightness is from 60%-100%, frequently use speakers for music and videos, active in social media, little camera and on notification tray almost all active settings including Nearby Share -the battery is around 4-5 hours only and it’s hard for me to reach 6 hours. Whereas if the first play like Asphalt 9 is around 1 hour continuous, the battery is around 3-4 hours SOT.

This is poor battery quality. Probably due to inconsistent performance or system optimization making high power consumption. After all, the 7nm chip uses more power than the Snapdragon 888. The 33W fast charging support is also in my opinion. OnePlus 8 Pro also has a 4510mAh battery and 30W charging power only. So a little more awesome Poco is kind of helpful. The charging time is around 1 hour exactly according to the temperature of the device and the open application.

MIUI for Poco Is a Little Disappointing

MIUI for Poco Is a Little Disappointing

MIUI For Poco is a Little Disappointing. If the MIUI 12 on Xiaomi Mi and Redmi devices has inconsistent performance issues, ads, a lot of fat applications and still feel there is a problem. MIUI for Poco is twice as disappointing. But, when compared to other devices in the same category or at least with device sold at a much lower price-this operating system can only be updated and users are also free to change custom ROMs or other modifications.

The features and functions of MIUI for Poco are becoming more and more in line with regular MIUI. The interface design is pretty good, neat and easy to use. But the issue of notifications on MIUI is still unforgivable even after doing various settings and modifications, there will be notifications overlapping with other notifications.

Read Also: Poco F3 Device With The Best Usage Experience

MIUI also has no problem for prolonged use, but if you have already streamed video; or mai first – I encourage you to rest the device first so that it calms down. Otherwise time delay will occur. 120Hz assistance is good, only if a lot of background tasks or memory are used – it will also feel slow.

Like I said before in my other review, MIUI 12.5 is most likely the starting point for the best MIUI. If this version update is already available, purchase it at that time. If not buy first before the stock runs out and face; withstand a few flaws that exist in this operating system.

Continuing the native Android -like experience; Google apps continue to built with interesting elements of Android 11 supported natively without using the Xiaomi -developed version. even so, only from the application. Other systems are still clichés such as launchers or operating systems from Chinese manufacturers.

Poco F3 Device With The Best Usage Experience

Poco F3 Device With The Best Usage Experience

Poco F3 Device With The Best Usage Experience. The Poco F3 screen is among the best mid -range OLED screens or affordable landmark devices I have ever tried. The quality is very satisfactory and really tries to approach a premium flagship device. It’s not only bright, it’s crazy bright! Brightness reaching over 1k nits is very good if regularly using the device in the sun. The colors are sharp enough, there is optimization support to give a better dual use experience and with HDR10+support, movie streaming on Netflix is ​​really immersive.

120Hz support completes the screen greatness of this device. It helps a bit to make this device faster and smoother. Scroll anywhere, open and close the app and with MIUI transition animations everything is a shock! It’s just a pity 120Hz on the device uses a basic adaptive system of 60Hz to 120Hz and can’t go down to 90Hz or if you see a still image it becomes 1Hz. Then, 120Hz is not so consistent as it will change abruptly to 60Hz for no reason and this is annoying. 60Hz on MIUI is very slow and makes the device seem like a time lag.

User Experience

The Poco F3 also provides an overall user experience that is ok, but not ok when performance becomes inconsistent. The use of UFS 3.1 storage and LPDDR5 RAM which is also powered by the Snapdragon 870 – this device is indeed a device that can speed up to try to beat the performance of other flagship devices. So open close the app, multi-task, install the app and do whatever activity it gives a good experience if this device wants to give it. The software issues that make the great blink performance of the weak blink are among the negative things on this device.

But, that is a sacrifice I am willing to accept. For this category of devices – we can not ask for more than what we pay. Be aware there will be sacrifices we have to face to differentiate this device from a premium flagship device.

Pushing all of this to the side, the Poco F3 brings a complete package of first -person gaming experiences, to light, pictorial assignments and more. Not to forget the premium build makes this device feel very worthwhile. The Snapdragon 870 in my opinion is much more stable and comfortable to use than the Snapdragon 888. This is probably because the SD870 is based on the slightly upgraded SD865+. Manufacturers are already adept at handling the SD865/865+ chip because there are already many devices using this chip compared to the still limited SD888. So the performance optimization is won by this chip.

The chip is also not easy to heat and long use of social media, the camera is just lukewarm. Extreme heat only when the first play exceeds 1 hour.

Poco X3 Pro Verdict

Poco X3 Pro Verdict

The Poco X3 Pro in my opinion is Poco’s strategy to come up with more device options in preparation for the problem of chip shortage in the smartphone industry. So by recycling the chip and renaming it, reusing the same design, as well as using immature software – the Poco X3 Pro can impress people because of the perception that this device is a great and powerful device. Poco X3 Pro Verdict.

This device isn’t bad, it’s okay. It’s just, it’s not for everyone no matter to make this device a second or daily device. With a 120Hz screen that tries to deliver a smooth experience, performance that can be as well as a camera that is just fine-Poco X3 Pro is not a killer device flagship. Instead it is a device for the community or Poco fans. It’s like the OnePlus with the T series, or the Realme that recycles the chip over and over again.

The Poco X3 Pro is for loyal Poco fans, especially the Poco F1. The Poco F1 is powered by a Snapdragon 845 chip and the Poco F2 was not launched as it went straight to the more powerful Poco F2 Pro. So Poco devices will never be there again with the Snapdragon 855/855+chip. With the use of the 860 name; and 855 performance this Poco X3 Pro is like a Poco F2 for Poco F1 users to change.

Recommendation

It is also suitable for those who have a budget of around RM1000 only to experience the greatness of the flagship device two years ago. So if just want to try out the experience of an old landmark device with the Poco brand, this is a good device. The sale price starting from RM999 is not very expensive; moreover the Mi Fan Festival which will start tomorrow; which is sold at RM899-it is a device that everyone should try.

But if you want a device with stable and mature software – can try OnePlus Nord N10. Only this device has a lifespan of 1 year and it was launched in September 2020. So if purchased now there are only about 5 months before it expires. The choice is in your hands.

Poco X3 Pro Benchmark Score

Poco X3 Pro Benchmark Score

The Poco X3 Pro benchmark score is as we expected. If the Snapdragon 855+ chip can reach an AnTuTu score of around 500K, why can’t this device? The AnTuTu score on this device is 484959 which is just fine. The Geekbench 5 score can only be obtained after the software update otherwise it will stop by itself at the 99%level. The accepted score was 764 for one core and 2572 for multi-core.

This score looks high and good. But I will remind you that scores are mere numbers and actual usage experience is a real benchmark. My review is based on the performance I experienced myself from making it a daily device for several weeks.

Software

MIUI for Poco is an operating system that is more or less the same as MIUI on Redmi and Xiaomi devices. It’s also based on MIUI 12, which is based on Android 11. The OnePlus Nord N10, which is famous for its fast Oxygen OS, is still Android 10 – so the advantage here is that Poco provides fast updates and takes good care of it. With an active community, especially in India, bug hunters are quick to catch problems that arise and updates will be distributed after a few weeks.

MIUI for Poco has a bad problem. It lacks good optimization in terms of memory management as well as power consumption. The overall experience will be more or less the same as other MIUI devices, but there are performance issues that are sometimes good that sometimes don’t make annoying feelings arise. Maybe Poco is already its own brand, so the development team isn’t the same either.

The features and functions on this device are more or less the same as other MIUI only. So, there are a lot of ads as well as fat applications that people do not use are also ready to be installed. Hopefully MIUI 12.5 will fix the issue on Poco so that the user experience is at least equivalent.

Google Photos Now Can Edit Video

Google Photos Now Can Edit Video

Google Photos is one of the best services from Google and also one of my favorites. All of my video and photo backups use this service, which will soon stop unlimited backup support and all backups will start using the user’s Google Drive quota. Not only that, Google is also starting to limit the features and functionality of Google Photos to paid users – that is, those who subscribe to Google One. Google Photos Now Can Edit Video.

As a user who subscribes to Google Drive, this is not an issue for me. Two months ago, Google offered iOS users new video editing functionality that goes directly built into Google Photos. Finally now, Android users can use it. The editing function this time sees more options than the crop tool, the ability to export frames individually, remove audio, control colors, add filters, or even cross out with sketches and more. The only downside is that you can’t combine multiple clips into one video.

According to some reports, this functionality is distributed via updates from the server side. But I received this functionality after an update from the Play Store, which is Google Photos version 5.37.0.367506220. If you give it a try, it offer everyone even if they don’t subscribe to Google One. So, maybe for now only photo editing is limited.

Poco X3 Pro Specifications

Poco, Poco, Poco, Ohhh Poco. More people deadlocked to choose Poco device. With Poco now their own brand, they have their own focus although some models offer the same specifications; and are sold cheaper than Xiaomi or Redmi. Poco is like Realme, they have their own fans and a community that always has a positive view of the products on offer. Poco X3 Pro Specifications.

After using the Poco X3 Pro for a few weeks, I admit that it is a good device. It’s fun to use, can only be played for the first time and used as an everyday device. But the same design as the Poco X3 NFC will give the perception, Poco is already out of ideas. Fortunately here they save and can sell at affordable prices. So as always in my reviews, I will be answering questions like is the Poco X3 Pro worth owning and for whom is this device?

Poco X3 NFC = Poco X3 Pro. So all the designs, sizes, dimensions are all the same. Significant differences are the processing chips, cameras and glass panels used only. The design that was originally exclusive to the Poco X3 NFC is now in use in China on Redmi devices; with the camera module resembling part of a DSLR camera and the massive Poco logo. Front, series, top and bottom are all the same.

So here be careful, because if there are irresponsible sellers they can trick you by selling the NFC version instead of the Pro.

Realme Buds Air 2 Audio Quality

Realme Buds Air 2 Audio Quality

Talk about Realme Buds Air 2 audio quality. At first, we were a bit less convinced by Realme’s claim that this Realme Buds Air 2 is capable of providing a pretty good audio experience. It follows, We have also tried the previous generation. Through it, we found that the actual results at that time were not as touted as in the promotional ads. So, for this time we are not placing high hopes on these earphones.

However, after the opportunity to try it for a period of about a week. We admit to being a bit surprised by the quality of the resulting audio. It’s great with audio capabilities that don’t disappoint. The audio quality is at a satisfactory level. At the highest setting, the resulting audio volume is still good and unbroken. Then, the bass rumble produced also sounds quite loud, energetic and steady – especially when listening to pop genre music.

ANC

Active noise cancellation (ANC) support on it is also able to work well compared to previous generations. But, it’s still not enough to completely hide external noise interference for relatively loud noise. Even so, these earphones are still capable of allowing you to enjoy an uninterrupted audio experience. The melody of the voice as a whole can also be heard quite clearly.

Not to be outdone, the Realme Buds Air 2 is also capable of offering good regular phone call quality-through the support of two microphones that come along with it. Through it, both parties including the caller and the receiver are able to hear the voice clearly without any problems. Overall, the audio is clear enough to be heard and the two -microphone support works pretty well. But, one thing we noticed. Use during video calls, audio is seen to have a bit of a time lag problem.

Battery Durability

Realme advertises these earphones have a battery life that is capable of lasting 4 hours and up to 22.5 hours with the help of a charger pod in case the ANC is activated. The duration of this operation can be increased to 5 hours and up to 25 hours with the charger pod if the ANC is deactivated. Meanwhile, Realme Buds Air 2 also supports a 10 -minute charging for a play endurance of around 2 hours (ANC deactivated). All of this is however played at an audio volume set to 50%.

Apparently it is not an unfounded allegation. But, it can be said to be almost accurate. In our tests, the Realme Buds Air 2 was able to achieve a usage of around over 3 hours with a single charge. Through it, it is played at a relatively loud audio volume with the ANC function always activated. So we feel the battery life on the Realme Buds Air 2 is good and it’s directly proportional to your audio power level. But, there is one thing we do realize – sometimes left earphones will run out of battery faster than right earphones. When the battery runs out, Realme Buds Air 2 can be recharged in about an hour.

Later, the music will resume automatically when it is re -plugged into the ear. Not to be outdone, this app also supports Volume Enhancer mode for a better audio experience.

However, if you notice there are still shortcomings in this application. Where, it does not offer the ability to control audio volume as found on a number of other earphones. So, you have to do it through the device connected with these earphones. Then, his touch controls also sometimes give a less responsive response.

As is, Realme Buds Air 2 also has an active noise cancellation system with three different setting levels – namely Noise Cancellation to reduce ambient noise interference. Next, General for normal use without ANC support. Finally, Transparency Mode can be found on other earphones like Huawei FreeBuds 3, AirPods Pro, WF-1000XM3 or Galaxy Buds+.

Rekaan

In terms of exterior design, Realme Buds Air 2 is seen to have a similar design to the previous Realme Buds Air Pro. It comes with a stemmed in -ear type font design and an oval -shaped charger pod. However, in fact there are still obvious differences. Among them, the connection of the audio bud with the stalk portion is more pronounced. Then, a different color finish – where, Realme no longer uses one overall color. On the other hand, it looks different on the stalk and bud of these earphones.

For example, the review unit we received was Closer White. As you can see, the finish on the stalk part is shiny silver. Meanwhile, the audio bud and charger pod are white. Personally we dislike this white finish because it is easily dirty with fingerprints, sweat and so on. However, for those who want a better alternative. You can get Realme Buds Air 2 in a darker colored finish

Razer Naga Pro Review

Razer Naga Pro Review

Just like the Razer Blackwidow V3 that I discussed earlier, I also have old memories with the Razer Naga. I also had the chance to review the first version of the Razer Naga which was released in 2009. Razer Naga Pro Review.

Back then, Razer mice were still known for their double-click problems but, because I really liked and needed a lot of buttons (since I was a long-time RPG fan), I had 3 Razer Naga. In the past, I always bought a new Razer Naga when the old one had double-clicked it up to 3x.

But then I gave up. I also missed the Razer Naga from the second version because I was lazy to deal with double-clicking. A few years ago, Naga Pro was released and Razer already has an optical switch in this version. Is this Dragon Pro really worth taking home? Let’s discuss together.

Build Quality

As I said earlier, previous generations of Razer gaming mouse often had double-click problems. Fortunately, they have realized this weakness and made a new switch. Before I bought this Dragon Pro, I used a Razer Basilsk V2 which also uses an optical switch and is still good today – without double-clicking at all.

So, as soon as I saw Naga Pro also used the optical switch, I couldn’t wait to buy it. Hopefully, I can use it without any switch problems at all until I get tired of this mouse. Like the others, I will update this review when I encounter problems with my Naga Pro.

Apart from the switches, the plastic body used in Razer Naga Pro is also very solid – feels thick and not fragile. I also really like the finish that Razer uses. It is very smooth and not glossy so it is not slippery for my sweaty hands.

Of the 6 mice that I have (Razer Basilisk V2, Logitech G703, SteelSeries Rival 500, ROG Strix Claw, Razer Naga Pro, Dareu EM 901), both Razer Naga Pro and Basilisk V2 have the best build quality. The good physical quality of the Naga Pro and Basilisk V2 is really admirable even though both are in the price range that is far apart. Naga Pro is priced at IDR 2.4 million. While the Basilisk V2 is priced in the range of Rp1.4 million.

Really, I can’t complain about the build quality (unlike their keyboard, Blackwidow V3). Even if there are notes, I just hope Razer will apply the build quality standard of their current mouse which is special to the keyboard too.

Wrist Rest for Keyboard

Wrist Rest for Keyboard

Wrist rest for keyboard. If you are like me who can spend 6-10 hours in front of the computer per day (be it working, playing games, or watching box… eh…), maybe you often feel sore wrists. Ideally, you should stand and move around at regular intervals and not sit constantly. However, I know that life is often far from ideal.

Reasons

Previously, I also often had wrist pain when I typed or played games for too long – because my wrist was directly touching the hard surface of the table. I know that the position is actually not ideal either. Ideally, according to ergonomists, your wrists should not be placed on the table but in a hovering position while typing. You can refer to the link above to find out more about good body and hand position when using the keyboard.

However, my wrist problems are sore due to the keyboard position that is too high and it hurts from being pressed too long against a hard surface, so it was much less when I started using the wrist rest. He said, using a wrist rest is actually still less than ideal if the position is not right either. However, I myself feel that using only a comfortable wrist rest can extend the duration I type and I don’t get sore or sore quickly.

Review

Currently, I have 3 types of wrist rest. The first wrist rest to come in the package from the SteelSeries Apex 7 which is hard material but covered with a rubber surface. Whereas the second I got from the plastic sales package of the Razer Blackwidow V3. The third wrist rest, made by Tecware, I bought separately, is filled with foam lined with fabric.

Of the three wrist rest that I have earlier, the wrist rest from Blackwidow V3 is the least comfortable to use. The reason is, the wrist rest still has a hard plastic surface that still hurts when used for a long time.

The second, more comfortable wrist rest is the one included in the sales package for the Apex 7; which is hard but covered in rubber. In fact, if it’s just the material; and the surface, I prefer this wrist rest to the one filled with foam – because the foam is bound to deflate with use.

Cleaning

Since the surface isn’t cloth either, wrist rest with a rubber-coated surface are also less prone to getting dirty – they’re easier to clean. Unfortunately, the Apex 7 wrist rest; because it was designed specifically for that keyboard, has a strange position when used with other keyboards. I no longer use the keyboard; because one of the switches is worn out, even though it hasn’t been used for a year.

The wrist rest that I now use is the one made of foam and covered in cloth. From what I feel, using a wrist rest (either from SteelSeries; or Tecware) can help me feel more comfortable when typing for two reasons. First, my wrists no longer have to be pressed / placed on a hard table. Second, the wrist rest also makes your wrists position higher; so that it is more parallel to the keyboard as well.

Although using a wrist rest will make you feel more comfortable; and less sore, I still recommend that you try to type in an ideal position; and keep moving at regular intervals (for example, once an hour).

ASUS ROG Delta S Review

ASUS ROG Delta S Review

If previously ASUS ROG sent ROG Chakram Core to me, this time they sent a new gaming peripheral, namely a gaming headset, namely ASUS ROG Delta S Review.

As usual, I have to say that gaming peripheral reviews will always be subjective, especially when we talk about headsets. The reviewer’s respective ears will be the main differentiator of each review. Therefore, I mention my ears are used to hearing the sound of HyperX Cloud Flight which I use every day from October 2020. Before that, I have also used and tasted various other gaming headsets from SteelSeries, Logitech, Razer. , and friends since I started working in game media from 2008.

In addition, as I wrote earlier, ASUS Indonesia sent the ROG Delta S, however, this will not change the results of the review on this gaming headset.

Without further ado, let’s enter the ASUS ROG Delta S review this time.

Design and Build Quality

The ASUS ROG Delta S is priced at a high price for a wired gaming headset. When I wrote this article, I found this headset priced at IDR 3.2 – 3.7 million in various online shops. Even so, the bulid quality offered by this ASUS product is worth the price you have to pay. The body is solid and the finishing really feels premium in all parts (from the headbad, earcups, to the cables). It’s in line with my expectations from the ROG brand – priced above average but always offering build quality to be proud of.

The headband mechanism used in the ROG headband is also very comfortable to use, it doesn’t sag but it’s also not too tight. Moreover, coupled with its light weight (only 300g), I can use this headset for hours without being noticed.

Connectors

From the connector side, I feel there are advantages and disadvantages of this headset. By default, this headset uses a USB Type-C connector. So, chances are, you’ll need a Type-C to Type-A (regular USB) converter as most motherboards probably don’t have a USB Type-C plug. Fortunately, ASUS provides the converter in the sales package. So you don’t really need to worry. However, with a separate converter earlier, if you careless about putting things carelessly, the converter can be lost and you have to buy a new converter before you can use it again.

When it comes to connectors, that wouldn’t be a problem if the default connector was 3.5mm – before connecting to a DAC that ended up being a USB 2.0 interface, for example. Because at least, you can use it without converter if the default is 3.5mm.

Even so, if I had to choose, I would prefer a USB Type-C connector like the one offered by ASUS. The reason is, my headsets use the 3.5mm connector end up with worn out connectors that make annoying noises when the connector is shifted just a little. With USB Type-C, the problem of worn out connectors should be gone; or at least they lasted a lot longer than the 3.5mm connector.

Earcups

Finally, what I want to discuss from the design side is the shape of the earcups. Like headsets made by ROG, Delta S uses triangular earcups (D-shaped). Although it is still very comfortable to use; and ASUS also provides 2 sets of ear cushions in the sales package; I prefer earcups that are round or square.

Why? Because headsets for audiophiles also mostly use round or square earcups. That way, I can buy a new ear cushions for audiophile headsets; just like I did on my HyperX Cloud Flight. With an easier option for changing the ear cushion; I can change the sound color of the headset; or change it if the ear cushion is no longer comfortable to use one day.
