10.or is a value-for-money 4G VoLTE  phone

 New Chinese phone, 10.or, offers  good combo of specs  & price
Bangalore, October 9 2017: Indians are great at sniffing out a good deal. They've shown that   they don't  like to pay a premium for a brand name when it comes to smart phones. We're guessing they'll  be delighted at the combo of  price and performance offered by the latest Chinese  maker to launch phones here: 10.or (pronounced  tenor).   We tried the 10.or E  with  3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage, expandable with a 128 GB microSD card which costs Rs 8999. The 2 GB/ 16 GB version costs  Rs 1000 less.  Both phones have  very good  batteries -- 4000 mAh, good for 48 hours --   come with the latest Android 7.1.2 which you can upgrade once Android 8 is offered.  The makers have sensibly used the  standard Android, without any fancy add ons --except  icons for Amazon and Kindle. The 5.5 inch  screen is full HD  and the dual nano SIMs  are good for the latest 4G VoLTE service. A finger print scanner in a phone in this price band is  rather rare  but the cameras  -- 13 MP rear and 5 MP selfie --  both with flash are just about OK. We recommend going for the 10.or G model which is identical except  for dual  13 MP rear cameras and a 16 MP front camera -- at Rs 10,999.   We liked the nice chunky (150 grams) feel. And the price is feel-good too!
