Hey guys,  is the one plus 7T a good phone for parents.

 

Also, it does not have a headphone jack, so do I need to get a adapter to use wired earphones

Planning to buy a phone in a month or so. Budget is 40k.

Have my eyes set on Asus rog phone 2 8gb/128 version, anyone with a review who has used or owns the phone? Watched some reviews where cam on the phone was bashed.

Suggestions for other phones in this budget would be highly appreciated.

Guys, does anyone know of a reputed Mobile Repair Shop in Delhi which does repair for Google phones and uses original parts? Seals the phone back up properly?

The USB C port of my Pixel 2 XL got damaged, doesn't always charge and shuts the phone down. I don't wanna send it to B2X because they will take 10-15 days and in my experience will try to charge me for either a motherboard replacement or a back glass because that's just their whim. Please help, it's urgent.

I bought one for Mom last week, it's been great...she likes it.

 

For earphones you can buy the adapter directly from their Oneplus site or use wireless ones.

 

she's not to keen on wireless buds, so will have to get the adaptor.

ROG owner here, what do you want to know?

The camera with Google camera is decent, definitely not great but manageable. Stock camera is definitely Meh.

Gcam is used by a lot of people because that app has a different algorithm to render your pics compared to stock cam. It sometimes gives you a better pic compared to your phones stock cam. It doesn't require root and is available for most phones. https://www.xda-developers.com/google-camera-port-hub/

I think Eddie gave a very good explanation of what gcam is. It's a app specific for your phone which really improves your image processing.

As for the phone itself, it's the fastest phone available in the market right now and it's honestly way too fast. Like it can type things before you can think of what to type fast. And butter smooth. Great screen and good speakers and amazing battery, like charge once and forget kind.

Coming to the cons the biggest is the weight. It's more heavy than a brick. You think you will get used to it and you do a bit but it's still extremely and I repeat extremely heavy. Please do consider this before buying.

Any other specific thing that you want to ask then go ahead

Maybe I put it in the wrong way. When I said I wanted to know exactly what you told I meant I wanted a review of gcam, I know what it is Thanks for the gcam review.

Yeah heard it’s quite heavy, moving from IPhone SE would take some time to adjust but the specs that it has I don’t want to miss out on this one. Thanks for the review & all the info bro.

Looks like the Galaxy S9 is gonna end up at 23k ish this sale. Is it a viable phone even if its 2 years old now? I was looking at the Oneplus 7T as well but that is almost 12k more.

 

Only two things that are important are Camera and display.

I take it you won’t be considering asus 6z due to it’s lcd display?
It’s got a great camera, proc, battery, all around a good phone.

Except that it is ageing, it's got a very good Camera and screen, so both your requirements are fulfilled.
