10.or G Look and Feel
Question: How is the 10.or G design?
Answer: The 10.or treads the safer path and opt for a familiar design for the G. On the rear, it’s roughly similar to Redmi Note 3 (though 10.or is a lot slimmer) with semi-metal unibody design and rounded profile, but yes the Dual camera capsule makes for a glaring difference.
On the front, it has 2.5D Gorilla glass and just as the ‘E’, 10.or G is a little too generous with bezels both above and below the screen. Another peeve point we have is with the power button placement. Since it’s positioned above volume rocker it’s not readily accessible.
Other than that, the phone is slim and ergonomic. The 10.or G design isn’t distinctive but it’s certainly acceptable for the price.

Question: Does 10.or G have a Bluelight filter?

Question: How is the 10.or G camera quality?
Answer: Camera isn’t the strong forte of the 10.or G. It can capture workable shots in good lighting, but indoors and in low lighting performance isn’t very consistent. But then again, you can’t do much better than the 10.or G in this price range.
When the lighting is good, the camera can capture fairly good images with good contrast and colors, but details aren’t very sharp. The software, however, struggles with metering and the images with bright backdrop turned out dull.
The dual camera mode on the phone allows you to shoot Portraits or images with blurred backdrops. The feature works surprisingly well. Its portrait mode performance is better than other dual camera phones in this budget.

Answer: The HDR mode on the phone doesn’t work well. The phone blows away highlights and colors are largely inaccurate when HDR mode is turned on.

Answer: In comparison, the 16MP selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture optics does a rather fine job. The beautification mode works fine. The camera app also lets you choose between white balance presets for more accurate metering. In dark ambiance, you can also make use of the soft LED flash present on the front.
