    OnePlus 8T

    There isn’t much of a difference between the Oneplus 8 and, its new and latest sibling, the Oneplus 8T. You could say that the Oneplus 8T is an upgraded Oneplus 8, how much of an upgrade you ask? well, I will leave that open for you to decide. The Oneplus 8T features 120Hz refresh rate as compared to the 90Hz refresh rate of the Oneplus 8, the 8T has a large 4500mAh battery with whooping 65W Warp Charger vs 4300mAh battery and 30W charging of the Oneplus 8 and finally the Oneplus 8T gets better camera lense including a depth sensor as compared to the Oneplus 8.

    Another budget flagship by Xiaomi is here, the Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro. By the way this is by no means an upgrade on the earlier released Mi 10 smartphones. This is a smartphone for all fans of the Mi 10 that cannot afford to buy it and would like to have an experience and feel of the Mi 10. Of course, they do share some similar specs but there are upgrades in some areas of the device as well as there are downgrades.

The swivel mechanism is the LG Wing’s standout feature that describes it and separates it from the...
