Amazon-promoted 10.or range of smartphones – 10.or D, 10.or E, and 10.or G – were released last year. We have already reviewed the 10.or D, 10.or E, and the 10.or G, and we found them to be neither great, nor below par. All these phones perform quite well, with some shortcomings here and there.
All these affordable, value-for-money phones were released with Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box. All 10.or phones use stock Android user interface. However, the phone still has not received the latest version of Android: 8.0 Oreo. Now, the company has announced through a text message that all 10.or phones will receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update in July 2018, which is very late considering when Google had released the first public version of Android 8.0.
10.or D: Specifications
The 10.or D is the company’s lowest-priced smartphone, and it features a 5.2-inch HD IPS LCD screen with 400 nits of peak brightness, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, 2GB/3GB RAM, 16GB/32GB internal storage, and a microSD card slot (up to 128GB). The phone has a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus, f/2.0 aperture, LED flash, HDR, and 1080p video recording. The front-facing camera on the 10.or D is a 5-megapixel sensor with fixed-focus lens and f/2.2 aperture. The phone has a dual-SIM card slot, a fingerprint reader at the rear, a Dirac loudspeaker, and a 3500mAh battery.
10.or E: Specifications
The 10.or E features a 5.5-inch IPS LCD screen with Full HD resolution, Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection, and 400 nits brightness. The phone uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor with 2GB/3GB RAM, and 16GB/32GB internal storage. The 10.or E also has a microSD card slot for storage expansion, compatible up to 128GB.
The phone has a 13-megapixel primary camera with 1.12µm pixels, f/2.0 aperture, autofocus, LED flash, HDR, and 1080p video recording. The 5-megapixel rear-facing camera on the phone has f/2.0 aperture and front-facing LED flash for brighter selfies in low-light conditions. The phone has a dual-SIM card slot, 4G LTE, a rear-mounted fingerprint reader, a 3910mAh battery, and comes in Black and Gold colours.
10.or G: Specifications
The 10.or G has the same 5.5-inch screen as that of the 10.or E, but it gets more processing power, thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 processor. The chipset is paired with either 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage or 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. The phone has a microSD card slot (up to 128GB) and a dual-SIM card slot, of course. It can be bought in two colours: Black and Grey.
At the rear, the 10.or G has a dual-camera setup, which consists of 13MP RGB sensor and a 13MP monochrome sensor. It uses 1.12µm pixels, f/2.0 aperture, phase-detection autofocus, and 1080p video recording. The front-facing 16MP camera has a fixed-focus lens f/2.0 aperture and LED flash. The 10.or G also has dual loudspeakers for better audio. There’s a fingerprint reader at the rear, and the phone comes packed with a 3910mAh battery with 5V/2A charging.
