The cell guru show lets get started Music and before we get started with all of that lets do news coming in from the world of mobiles and, of course, the big one is what were expecting from the samsung unpacked event. Lets start with that. Another samsung launch event is nearly upon us. The south korean tech giant has announced that its next unpacked event will take place on february 9th, during which we are expecting to see the official announcement of the galaxy s22.
Its latest flagship phone series – samsungs galaxy s, devices are typically its highest spec, smartphones and theyre. Typically, our first look at trends. Major smartphone manufacturers will be following for the year. The flagship galaxy s22 would come in three handsets as base galaxy s22, galaxy, s22 plus and galaxy s22 ultra by this time. We also have a good idea regarding specifications. All three devices will reportedly ship with qualcomms latest flagship processor, the snapdragon 8gen1, while in india we would likely get devices powered by samsungs own exynos, 2200 processor. Other specs would include fast, refresh screens brighter displays with higher peak brightnesses and a slightly lesser battery capacity, which is slightly disappointing if its true as the previous generation did not have a very good battery backup, while the s22 and the s22 plus will be an iterative Update over their predecessors, the s22 ultra will reportedly be a very different beast rather than using a similar design language to the rest of the s22 lineup. Various leaks suggest that the s22 ultra will have a very similar squared off design to samsungs previous node devices. There is reportedly even a built in slot for its s pen stylus this time around. As for the prices, samsungs flagship mobile devices would have premium, prices expect an increment in prices for all three devices, as they will now cost more than the previous generations. Still, there are lots of things that are hidden to know such details lets see what announcement samsung would make on galaxy unpack 2022 event on february, 9th Music and now lets move on to our top story.
This is the oppo renault 7 pro and oppo renault 7. ill talk to you a little bit about the pro, because the oppo renault 7 also is a great phone but its the oppo renault 7 pro that really stands out. So its got a monolith, design great material used very, very thin. You know its a marvel of technology that companies now can put in so much of hardware, so many features so many components, so something that is, i think, about 7.45 mm thin its amazing. What all they can do so its a great looking phone, very nice, very current in terms of their design, but really what stands out is the looks. The screen is fantastic, a custom built chip inside it its a mediatek dimension 1200, but theyve really tuned it for what they want to do and what they really want to do is give you a camera experience like never before lets. Take a look at both phones. Think design and a few brands automatically stand out. Oppo is one of a few smartphone companies that have had a laser focus on pushing the edge of aesthetics. The companys latest, the opponent, seven and seven pro are proof that the brand isnt quite done yet two phones. Yet similar design, both the oppo renault 7 renault 7 pro, are debuting a laser edge design that looks absolutely fabulous as long as you prefer. Vibrant colors, 1.2 million lines edged on the back of the glass panel, give the phone sufficient grip and an optical effect that changes the color as you move the phone around.
Meanwhile, the metal mid frame has absolutely straight lines that give ample area to hold the phone. Yes, the 7 pro does look a bit like an iphone but thats, not necessarily a bad thing. The more affordable renault 7 makes do with curved edges. Instead, the renault 7 pro has a special trick up its sleeve in the form of breathing lights. For notifications placed around the camera module, the renault 7 pro lights up on receiving a notification up front, bezels are minimal and the oppo renault 7 pro stretches a 6.55 inch display in there with razor thin bezels. The regular renault 7, on the other hand, has a smaller 6.43 inch display both panels support 90 hertz of fresh rates, though the renault 7 pro goes just a bit brighter with up to 900 nits of brightness regardless, you will find both the amoled displays to be Perfectly vibrant and visible outdoors bigger differences lie under the hood, where the phones have a significant difference in performance. The oppo renault 7 is a standard mid ranger with a diamond city 905g chipset. The phone is reasonably powerful and will get you up and running with popular games. Just fine, but more demanding titles might drop the occasional frame. That problem is solved by stepping up to the renault 7 pro powered by a diamond city 1200 chipset. The phone has enough grunt to run any game you throw at it. Nor does it struggle with day to day task performance is fantastic and users wont find anything to complain about.
Both phones are running color. Os 12 on android 11 promised updates to android 12, giving you the latest and greatest software experience talking about the cameras. The renault 7 pro packs a 50 megapixel sensor that proves itself to be a capable performer. The phone balances detail with vibrant colors theres a hint of saturation but overall results still look good. The renault 7 opts for an older but high resolution. 64 megapixel sensor, like the 7 pro images, are plenty good, but the camera doesnt resolve quite as much detail. Both phones support ultra wide cameras that have a bit of distortion around the edges, but performed competitively in less than ideal light. You will find 2 megapixel macro cameras that fall short on details. The real magic, however, lies in the front. Camera oppo is using a unique rgbw sensor that can absorb a lot more information in low light. The result, excellent image quality, despite less than perfect lighting, the 32 megapixel sensor does a brilliant job at capturing skin tones and you can adjust the skin enhancement features as you choose. Keeping things running all day. Long are 4500 m8 cells, predictably, the renault 7 lasts. Just a bit longer due to its more frugal chipset, but the renault 7 pro manages a full day, just as well equipped with 65 watt charging support. It takes just about 35 minutes to charge up the phones priced at 28, 999 rupees and ‘ 990 rupees for the renault 7 and renault 7.
Pro the two options are not the most powerful, but the excellence in design and camera capabilities make them quality options to consider. If those are the features you want from your next phone Music, all right, so great phones from oppo and now lets move on to something weve been waiting for a very well priced, tws earbud from oneplus the z2. Now the original version that came out was a big big success. Why? Because they kind of got the price point and the feature set completely right now: theyre taking it to a whole new level from the audio quality, the noise cancellation, the very very nice portable form factor that theyve built into it and a very good price point. Now. Im going to show you the review when we come back well also do a small little shootout. Music music lovers have never had it. This good. The sure amount of innovation and competition over price means more quality options for everyone. The oneplus but z2 joins a back category and improves upon the original oneplus but z, with a loaded feature set. Has the company mastered the art of budget audiophile, goodness lets find out in a review of the oneplus but z2 the oneplus but c2. Stick to the same general design as the original bud see but thats, not necessarily a bad thing. The in ear style earbuds are comfortable to wear all day long and include a short stem that houses. The microphone the fit is excellent and you will have no problem.
Taking them out for a run, the ip55 rating means that they can comfortably handle splashes as well. All controls are located on the stem and you can tap to play or pause music and even control the level of noise cancellation, the earbuds integrate deeply with oneplus phones and all controls for noise cancellation and adjusting sound quality pop up under the bluetooth menu itself. Others can make use of the hey melody app to adjust all the controls on the oneplus but z, coming to the audio quality. The budsy delivers rich and punchy sound. The goal here is in neutrality. Oneplus is aiming for a bass, rich sound that will make hip hop and bollywood music sound, incredible, vocals sound just a bit recessed. The earphones do great for watching movies, thanks to the dolby atmos support volume. Levels too, are plenty good, and if you like, listening to podcast while doing chores, the oneplus by z will be your best buddy thats. Also because of the excellent active noise cancellation. The feature is becoming common amongst more affordable, headphones and aims to cut outside noise. By matching the frequency to cancel external sounds oneplus claims that the bud z2 can cut noise by almost 40 decibels out and about or even in noisy environments. The oneplus but z2 do a fantastic job at cutting down ambient noise levels and make listening to music a whole lot more enjoyable. Battery life 2 is on par with the rest.
Oneplus claims, 5 hours of battery life on a single charge. We manage 4 and a half hours with the active noise cancellation switched on the earbuds support fast charging and a 10 minute top up in the case will get you up and running for two hours available for 5000 rupees. The fun plus but z2 makes a couple of omissions like wireless charging and adjustable equalization, but our power pack package for enjoyable, music, listening backed by active noise cancellation. Exactly what i promised you weve done. The review now lets do a comparison. There is a bit of a price point difference between these two, but more or less. Everything else seems to be the same so which is the better one for you to buy the oneplus or the nothing year, one Music, the convenience, sound quality and comfort. That modern day wireless earbuds provide make them a must own gadget and with this growth in popularity, almost all big name, audio brands now have some kind of wireless buds for you to consider and the latest to join. The party is oneplus, which just launched the buds z2. The z2 borrows features like anc and better sound quality from its bigger brother, but packs them at a much affordable price. But by paying a little extra, you have an option of getting the nothing year. One black edition, which is one of the best sounding tws in this segment. The question then is which one is better.
We compare them in our cell guru, review and answer which one to buy nothing pulls out a win right off the bat in the design department. Although both earbuds have a pretty traditional in ear shape with a short stem, however, nothings aesthetics are far and way better than the oneplus z2 Music. The air one black has a stunning transparent finish, providing a clear look inside at all of the neatly packed internals. This bold look carries over the case as well, which has a transparent top and bottom to match. The look of the earbuds by comparison, the oneplus bugs z2 are a bit generic. The glossy and hard plastic case doesnt do anything to stand out from the crowd. The air once case also gets covered in scratches within days of use and progressively loses its luster, while the buds z2 case only seems to attract fingerprints and smudges, but can be cleaned off easily from a functional standpoint, however, oneplus has a key advantage. The buds z2 has an ip55 dust and water resistance rating, along with ipx4 protection for the charging case by comparison, nothing ear, one gets an ipx4 rating for the earbuds and lacks any kind of ip coverage for the case, whereas comfort is a subjective factor, we have Had no complaints with both pairs of earbuds, as both of them are small and lightweight after a while, you tend to forget, you are even wearing anything, however, the long stalks of the z2 are more noticeable than those of the air one, regardless neither pair should pose Any major comfort issues to most users as for pairing, both these earbuds support, googles, fast pairing process, which makes connection a breeze after pairing, both of the earbuds have their own apps.
But if you have a oneplus phone, you do not have to download the otherwise hey melody app. Both the apps feature, a host of customization options, ranging from assigning gesture controls to adjusting the strength of active noise cancellation where they differ, is in providing eq presets, which the air one provides and the oneplus buzzer z2 miss out on when it comes to earphones. Generally, the most important part of the experience is the actual sound quality and, unlike many other, affordable earbuds. Nothing here, once doesnt emphasize base notes to the point of overpowering the rest of the music. The 11.6 millimeter dynamic drivers inside each earbud boost mid frequencies and help vocals to stand out from the mix. The air ones are presented well with good stereo separation and nothing sounds muffled. The buds z2, on the other hand, are entirely dominated by an excessive amount of mid bass. It tends to drown out. Most of the other sounds particularly in the mid range. The high end is reasonably well balanced, but does have some sibilance at certain frequencies. Both the bug z2 and the air one feature active noise cancellation which lets you adjust the level of noise cancellation. The anc on both earbuds is average, at best both do an okay job, getting rid of the rumble and thrum of ambient noise, but do very little about the noise in the mid and upper ranges. The bud z2 does a bit better here as compared to the air ones coming to the battery life.
The bud z2 has the better battery life of the two oneplus claims: five hours of battery life, and we managed close to 4.5 hours of continuous playback, whereas we cannot say the same about the air once which gave us close to 3.5 hours. Also, both the buds support fast charging, but the air ones go one step further by including wireless charging as well priced at 5999 rupees. The nothing air 1 is more expensive than the oneplus z2, but they are well worth as it delivers great sound with a comfortable fit and when you consider a striking design that breaks the mundane look of most earbuds at this price tag. With the addition of wireless charging, the nothing air 1 delivers. Exceptional bang for your buck on the cell guru show were going to take a quick break right now when we come back lots more happening.
