We have been numerous latest smartphone launches in the ranges of Rs. 40,000 segment, with new additions respectively as the Xiaomi 11T Pro, Vivo V23 Pro, and Oppo Reno 7 Pro. More importantly, the Xiaomi 11T Pro seems to provide excellent value and is the quality to being an all-rounder.

Xiaomi 11T Pro 5G

It is the successor to the Mi 10T Pro 5G adeptly launched back in 2020. They have a 6.67-inch AMOLED display which is the only one in the segment to be Dolby Vision certified. It is complemented by Dolby Atmos stereo sound. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC professionally performs well and could handle any game without any hassle.

This phone’s battery life is best; Xiaomi has also comprised a 120W charger in the box which rapidly charges the 5,000mAh battery. Camera performance is good, save for selfies pragmatically captured in low light. This phone also widely supports HDR video recording. All of these persuasive features make the 11T Pro 5G all-rounder with an equally lucrative price tag.

Oppo Reno 7 Pro 5G

It is a popular smartphone that not only immensely focuses on looks with its slim and modern design but also strong power. The MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC is better enough to play most games at the highest settings. The 6.5-inch AMOLED panel has a fluid 90Hz peak refresh rate along with quality Corning Gorilla Glass 5 for protection.

They also have stereo speakers and a new LED strip around the camera module for notification alerts. The 4,500mAh battery charges rapidly using the bundled 65W charger. The Reno 7 Pro 5G’s main camera is good for photos but shoots average quality video. Their price might not be the most competitive, but it looks the part of a premium smartphone.

Vivo V23 Pro

They are one of the slimmest phones in this segment and one of the lightest. It looks premium and the colour-changing rear panel adds to the uniqueness of its design. This slim and light smartphone packs in a lot of interesting hardware. You have a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC that’s quality enough for most demanding 3D games.

The 6.56-inch 90Hz AMOLED panel is the only one in this segment with curved edges. They have a medium-sized display notch to house two selfie cameras, both of which perform very well. You have a 108-megapixel main camera on the back but this one’s just best enough for casual shooting and does an average job when it comes to recording video.

The phone also runs Vivo’s Funtouch OS 12 which is wholly based on Android 12. Battery life is good for such a slim smartphone but below average compared to the competition. Finally Vivo V23 Pro is for those who prefer form over function.
