Published

on

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 was one of the most successful devices last year in India. Around 3.6 million units were sold here, and Xiaomi got a revenue of 1$ Billion itself from India. After such a successful year Xiaomi decided to upgrade their most sold phone and launched the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. The Dual Rear camera has become too mainstream for Vivo, so the company launched the Vivo V5 with a Dual Selfie camera recently. So let us see which one should you buy, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 vs Vivo V5.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 vs Vivo V5 – Design

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4

The Redmi Note 4 has a somewhat similar design to its predecessor. The device sports a full metal body and is a bit heavier than the Redmi Note 3. But while using the device, the Redmi Note 4 feels good as the device has chamfered edges at the back. The Note 4 is entirely made out of aluminum though it has plastic at the top and bottom.  The speaker grills are at the bottom with a microUSB port in between. The company could’ve used the USB- Type C port for better performances, but it decided to stick with the microUSB instead. The device is available in 3 colours.

The power and volume buttons are on the right, the SIM card slot is on the left, and you can either use two SIM cards (microSIM + nanoSIM) or a SIM card along with a microSD card. At the back, there’s the fingerprint scanner, a camera sensor and obviously, a camera :p An IR Blaster is located on the top along with the headphone jack.

Talking about the Vivo V5 , the device’s design is a rip off of the iPhone 7. This gives the device a premium look and a better feel while using it. It sports a metal unibody with curved sides with chamfered edges. The SIM Tray is located on the left and the power button, and the volume keys are on the right side. Similar to the Redmi Note 4, the V5 also uses the microUSB for charging purposes.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 vs Vivo V5 – Hardware

The Chinese variant of the Redmi Note 4 is powered by MediaTek’s Helio X20 SoC, but as Xiaomi isn’t allowed to launch phones powered by MediaTek processors in India, the local variant is driven by a Snapdragon 625. The device comes in three variants – 2GB RAM + 32GB Storage, 3GB RAM + 32GB Storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB Storage. The fingerprint scanner on the back is easy to locate and very fast. The speaker has improvements here and is a lot better than the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. All other basic features like the Dual Band Wifi, Bluetooth, LTE, and VoLTE are available on the device.

The Vivo V5 sports a MT6750 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory. The home button at the front also works as a fingerprint scanner too. The V5 is equipped with your basic connectivity features like the 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and USB OTG.

The Vivo V5 is handled by Funtouch OS 3.0 based on Android Marshmallow. The Funtouch OS has looks similar to the iOS, in short, the Vivo V5 is an iPhone 7 clone :p Both of these operating systems don’t have an app drawer, ie all apps are accessible with a swipe.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 vs Vivo V5 – Camera

The Redmi Note 4 has a 13MP camera with f/2.0 lens and a 5.0MP front camera. The camera gives great pictures in daylight but comparatively no that good when clicking in low light conditions. The MIUI Camera app is easy to use and has a lot of features to try out!

Here’s where the Vivo V5 shines the brightest! The 16MP rear camera works great in all conditions. The front camera consists of a  8MP camera. The 20MP sensor clicks vibrant pictures while the other one gives the selfie a bokeh effect ( blur background ) The camera app has a lot of modes like the Motion, Ultra HD, Manual, Night, Anti-Shake, and Time Lapse.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 vs Vivo V5 – Battery

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 has a slightly larger battery than its predecessor. The device runs on a 4,100mAh battery which can easily last for a day or two on an average usage. The biggest drawback is the microUSB, a TypeC USB port would’ve made the device charge faster, the device’s fast charging is limited to 5V/2A which is equivalent to Quick Charge 2.0 speeds.

The Vivo V5 features a 3000mAh battery which is too less compared to the Redmi Note 4. The battery can last for a day on a single charge.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 vs Vivo V5 – Conclusion

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 costs Rs.9,999 for the lowest variant and Rs.12,999 for the highest one. This device is currently the best someone can get in the price range. The Vivo V5 costs 17,000 giving almost same features. Hence, here the winner is clearly the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4.

Fix Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 6t

Published

on

Yesterday I was checking comments on of our article on OnePlus 6t and ALmost every other comment was mentioning about the issue they were facing on their OnePlus 6t US version. So I researched a bit more about the same topic and what I found was that there does really exist some issues with the bluetooth on these new OnePlus phones. I was trying to find the solution for this bluetooth issue with OnePlus phones since then and I think finally I have the solution. So today we will see how you can fix the issue of Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6t. There can be different methods but I will be showing you the most robust yet the most simplest one.

How to – Fix Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6/ 6t

Method 1

OnePlus even though is growing at an exponential rate is still not even near to the software teams of Apple or Samsung. The Oxygen OS is one of the lightest ROM you can find on a phone and it works well most of the time, but sometimes it is not perfect as it should be. The OS itself has some bugs related to Bluetooth that can only be fixed by a system update that has to be done by OnePlus. The same is also discussed on its own forum here. So, does this means that we have to live like it is? well, not at all! There are a few workarounds which we will tell you here.

Most of the problems in Oxygen OS can be fixed with a simple restart and the same goes with this issue as well. A simple restart will most probably fix this issue. Yup, it does sound naive but go ahead and restart your phone. This will solve most of your problems on your phone.

Now what I’ll suggest is to bookmark this page and if you still get the same issue in future then come back and read the method 2.

Fix Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6

Method 2 – Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 /6t

So the restart didn’t help, well, no issues. Just empty your cache and the problem should no longer occur again for a while. So how to wipe your cache? There are two methods and I’ll suggest you to do both.

  1. Open Settings – Storage & memory and scroll down to find Cache data. Tap on it and press OK to clear the cached data.
  2. Now, wipe the cache partition from the recovery menu.
    • Turn off the OnePlus 6/6t, and then press and hold the Volume Up and Power button simultaneously.
    • Release the Power button when the OnePlus logo appears, but continue to hold the Volume Up
    • On the Android recovery screen, use the Volume Down button to navigate down to wipe cache partition and press the Power button to select it.
    • Use the Volume Down button to select Yes — delete all user data, and then press the Power button to confirm.
    • Wait for the reset to finish and press the Power button when prompted with the message to Reboot system now.

Now just use your phone and connect to bluetooth devices and it should not get disconnected at all.

The OnePlus 6T is the company’s most futuristic flagship till date with Screen Unlock on the immersive 6.41-inch Optic AMOLED display, class-leading hardware and meticulous industrial design to create the industry’s fastest and smoothest smartphone experience. It features the latest, most powerful platform, Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, with up to 8GB of RAM that creates an experience that continues to set the standard for performance.

If you are still facing the issue of Bluetooth getting disconnected on OnePlus 6 then let us know and we will forward it to OnePlus!
