One Plus 5T - Latest Leaks, Rumours and Renders


According to the latest rumour the premium smartphone manufacturer One Plus is nearing its next launch most likely a smartphone named One Plus 5T considering the company's history. This will definitely be a major overhaul from the One Plus 5 which it already launched earlier this year at least in the design front. As the entire smartphone market is shifting towards using the 18:9 aspect ratio, the company is unlikely to stick to the traditional 16:9 AR which the One Plus 5 used. Supporting this rumours, a pair of renders of the suspected One Plus 5T leaked online.


As far the design in the render go, the new smartphone is strikingly similar to Samsung Galaxy S8 on the front even though the display isn't curved. The fingerprint sensor have moved to the back of the phone, above the logo. The back of the phone bears minimal changes other than the addition of fingerprint. Considering the overall look and feel the One Plus 5T will have a compelling design.

Another fact supporting the rumoured launch is that One Plus 5 is getting out of stock starting in US. Earlier when the company launched One Plus 3T, One Plus 3 too was being removed from the global market. This indicates a pattern. But whats different is that One Plus 3T didn't brought many changes over One Plus 3. This year it will be different as One Plus 5T is going to bring much bigger changes over its predecessor[in a way the company is forced to].

If the company is actually going to launch a new phone, the One Plus will have to make it compelling enough for all the fans. One Plus 5 was not well received as the company had expected. Most of the people complained that the phone is overpriced comparing with One Plus 3. Many also complained about its camera since its camera performance didn't live up to the hype that company created. So this time around, it will have to make a phone that actually live up to the expectations of the fans.


Top 5 Apps For Rooted Android Users 2017

Many android users find it more comforting if their phone is rooted. Rooting the phone in definition is an extra step taken to get more control over your phone. Like the ability to introduce theme support in android for example, which the Stock Android does not support (many third party OEMs may introduce them on top of their custom skin but those aren't unified). Most of people those who browse through Play Store may have seen the [root] tag at least once in the names of certain apps. These apps probably won't work unless yours is Rooted. Below are top 5 apps that every Rooted Android Phone users should try.

1. Titanium Backup

Titanium Backup is essentially a workaround for the traditional 'Apps' section in the settings menu but with a lot of useful extras. First and for most useful feature is its ability to backup apps with their app data. It compresses the app data so no worries about storage space. It also have the option to make the whole process automatic and you can also backup to an external storage. Another cool feature is that it lists almost all the apps including system apps and you can even disable the battery draining system apps. Their is more useful features like this in Titanium backup that a normal user can't even imagine. We leave it for you to explore and we're pretty sure you will get surprised.

2. Greenify


Greenify is simply an app that will make you get the most out of your phone's battery. It uses the same method as android names as 'doze' but in a more effective way. What it does is that it will put the apps that run in the background into doze mode more often. This clears the apps that is clinging on to the memory and will release more free memory. But instead of closing the apps Greenify puts them in a state of 'hibernation' so that they are force closed and still don't use the precious system resources. Make sure that you mark only the apps that don't require to run in background in greenify settings( marking apps like Whatsapp will result in break of instant message notification).

       


3. Substratum Theme Engine

Substratum is the app which can bring theme support to android. Not only that it brings support, there are dozens of themes out there in play store which includes both free and paid ones. One big advantage of this is that you can combine themes to get your own perfect mix. This is possible because that the users can decide which elements are to be themed. Lets say that one like the themed status bar of a particular theme but not the themed settings menu, then the user simply needs to uncheck the settings UI in the overlays.


   




4. Root Essentials

Root Essentials is an all in one feature box which contain tools which would otherwise require multiple apps. Some of the tools are for the daily users but some are for a bit more advanced users. It includes tools like Root browser, Battery calibration, advanced rebooter- likewise many more. Root essential also packs some striking options such as Emoji changer, which can bring newer emojis to those stuck with older android versions.


 

5. Kernel Adiutor

Kernel auditor brings together many things that the users are unable to access. It can display all the information about the cores of CPU, like current clock speed, max clock speed, min clock speed etc. There are a ton of options regarding how should the phone's hardwares should operate but it is recommended to stay silent to those options that is unknown or google it before proceeding. Kernel Adiutor also has a Sound Control panel where usually you are served with options to increase or decrease max and min speaker, earphone or earpiece volumes. So for those of you that always complain that their earphone volume is low can give it a try but always consider the possibility that it may damage your gadgets if they are not used in the way they should be.

Asus Zenfone 3S Max Review : Smart step in Searching for Incredible



Asus had launched their first smartphone of 2017 named Zenfone 3S Max in Feb. The main highlights of Zenfone 3S Max are "exquisite design, powerful battery, stunning camera and stellar perfomance". This zenny comes with the enhanced 5000 mAH battery with premium good quality ZenEar earphones along with the box.

Do Asus could suceed in mesmerize users with Zenfone 3S Max ? Lets Check..

Watch Our Unboxing and First Impressions video of Zenfone 3S Max



Design



Zenfone 3S Max made out of Aluminiun alloy metal body with 2.5D contoured Touch Screen which add up premium looks to the Max. Other catching thing is that the 360 degree fingerprint scanner spot on the home button which is rarest design when comparing with budget competitors but its a little bit slow detecting the finger edges.

The top of the MAX holed for 3.5 mm jack headphone while the bottom accomodates speaker grille providing high clarity in output.

Zenfone 3S Max Review


Lifting into screen side , 8 MP front camera revamped on top but does not feature any LED Flash light for selfie lovers.

Flipping over the back , there places 13 MP PixelMaster camera on top of the left corner surrounded by a small thin sheild which protects the lens from scratches and wraps. Dual LED Flash light (dual tone) sticked near the rear cam. Speaker moved to bottom, neighbour of Mic.



Overall the design of Zenfone 3S Max is fantastic and easy to hold and slide in single hand. Zenfone 3S Max providing 75 per cent screen to body ratio so this 5.2 inch display phone is great fit and relief for users who feels uncomfortable with 5.5 inch and 5.0 inch large display phones.





Display

The Asus Zenfone 3S Max features an 5.2inch HD (1280×720 pixels) LCD display along with a sleek Metal body and 2.5D contoured glass. The display is broadcasting colours clearly and outstanding at 282 PPI but is reflecting some yellowish tint under direct sunlight , can be adjusted at brightness defaults. The display is enough brighter at outdoor to stand with sunlight without being dull.The lower resolution should see it do better in the battery section and let it perform better in games as well. The bluelight filter in builted helps adjusting the screen light in day- night conditions and engage users for surfing without causing irritation to eyes.


Camera



The Asus Zenfone 3S Max carrying 13 MP PixelMaster , f/2.0 aperture primary camera gives clear and good quality output while provided with sufficent light as well as low light. The Dual LED Flash enhances the beauty of photographs taken in night. The 8MP front camera is not awesome in snaping selfies and the out is only average . 1080p HD video recording is possible in Zenfone 3S Max. The phone doesn't heat up quickly while the camera doing his job but there happens delay in shutter camera in some time.

Here are some sample photographs taken using Asus Zenfone 3S Max.



The Zenfone 3S Max is adaptable for beginning photographers because it provides much customization in camera modes and able to adjust in accordance with the availablilty of light. We suggest you to switch manual instead of auto mode and adjust ISO in night photogarphy, only then you will get nice shots that outstands your expectation.

Super Resolution mode, Low-light mode, Backlight (Super HDR) mode etc are the different modes found in camera application.

Software

Asus Zenfone 3S Max marked as the first budget phone that ships with the latest version Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. The Nougat version brings multi-window feature , made the space for multi tasking in way of a split-window or effortlessly switching between apps. we now get the privilege to choose the display size which makes plenty of sense.

The ZenUI 3 is bloated with a bunch of pre installed applications is a little sad bit. The system itself consumes some more RAM due to unwanted apps but not affecting the stability of system. Thanks to Mobile manager application for clearing cache , freeing up RAM and boosting the memory.



Performance

This handset is powered by MediaTek MT6750 octa core 64-bit processor clocked at 1.5GHz with Mali T860 GPU and 3GB RAM lifting the performance overview. The device provides 32GB Internal Memory Expandable upto 2TB. It would be better if provides 4GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage rather than 2TB expandable micro sd slot.

The big 5000 mAH battery and processing speed shows the attraction point of users who needs a budget phone with long battery life, good camera and using continous usage without any lag. The gaming performance in Zenfone 3S Max is fine in gaming. High end games like Asphalt 8 Airborn can be played smoothly.

The phone supports 4G VoLTE and during our test the sound quality is fine and not found any issues in JIO VoLTE network.

The speaker was pretty loud. Sound and sound quality comparatively high in Zenfone 3S Max than Redmi Note 4 and specially notable that Zenfone 3S Max provides noise cancellation in dual Mic better than other budget phones.

The device does not heat uncontrollably while heavy use but the charger gets heated up that lasts until reaches above 80 per cent battery level. The charger made with necessary capacity to hold too much heat and its common in almost all budget phones in the range.



Battery : The Asus Zenfone 3S Max packs in a massive 5,000mAh Lithium-polymer battery. As its name 'MAX', Asus gives priority to the big battery. During my testing, the battery easily managed to get me up to two days of moderate usage and lasted for one day with heavy usage which includes gaming, online surfing, calling video play back. It takes almost 2 hours to battery get fully charged but is worth waiting to play with this device more time.

Extras : I felt impressed with the ZenEar earphones which comes inside the box along with Zenfone 3S Max. The premium quality earphones comes under the brand Asus is excellent in its build quality. The earphones also spoted a microphone in it and the quality of the mic is fine. The ZenEar has Patented Damping System and Transmission Tube designed to deliver crystal clear and detailed sound

  • 5.2inch HD IPS display along with a sleek Metal body and 2.5D contoured glass

Verdict

Asus Zenfone 3S Max surely great fit for users who gives much importance to good battery backup as it can deliver 2-3 days backup. The 5.2 inch larger display is cool to occupy in single hand and easy to handle. The shots from 13 MP PixelMaster Camera is nice if use manual mode than auto.
