Display: Equipped with Tiny Notch
The display measures 6.41 inches diagonally. So it’s comparatively big. The edges on the front are however very small. This size division is also possible by shifting the fingerprint scanner into the display. The device can therefore be unlocked by simply touching the display. This usually works well, but unfortunately not always.
The offered resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels proved to be excellent in the test. Thanks to the achieved pixel density of 402 ppi, all images are displayed extremely sharply.
In addition, the color representation was positively noticed in the test. The smartphone display is surprisingly rich in contrast and presents colours in a correspondingly differentiated way. During the setup you can adjust the color of the display, which is a special feature.
The tiny Notch is also conspicuous. In comparison with the predecessor model, it is noticeable that Notch had to give up a large part of its space requirements. In the tested model, almost only the small front camera protrudes into the screen. The recess is thus considerably smaller than with comparable competitive products. It also conceals three sensors and the loudspeaker required for telephoning, which disappears in the upper edge. In the test, the Notch was barely noticed. If a user feels disturbed by it, however, it can be hidden in the settings – in this case the top edge of the display is blackened so that the notch can no longer be recognized as such.
Camera: Slightly Above Average
The dual camera was taken over from the predecessor model. In addition to a 16 megapixel main camera, a second 20 megapixel camera is used, which is primarily responsible for depth of field effects. A bokeh effect is calculated by software.
In the test, the photos taken with the camera looked consistently high quality. With good visibility and lighting conditions, we did not notice any points of criticism. The resolution was high, the images were sharp and the colors were very detailed. The contrast was high. The bokeh effect was by no means artificial.
If, on the other hand, the light and visibility conditions become worse, the photo quality decreases quite significantly. The worse the conditions become, the more noise becomes visible.
The photos have been compressed for better loading time. Here you can download them uncompressed.
Overall, however, the camera can be rated as slightly above average for this price class. Despite minor weaknesses, it can keep up with the models of more expensive smartphones.
