Walton Primo H10 Review: Affordable Smartphone with Moderate Features

Walton, a Bangladeshi electronics maker, produces made-in-Bangladesh phones for both local and international markets. Walton is praised for producing affordable smart gadgets and maintaining standards. The firm has established itself on a certain level and is now attempting to add quality and beauty to its equipment. In February 2022, Walton released its latest device Primo H10. This article will go through the many components and functionalities of the phone.

Key Features of Walton Primo H10

Design

The Walton Primo H10 is huge, but due to its weight distribution, users will hardly notice. The front has a large display that is shielded by a glass panel for further protection against drops. The bezels are large, which prospective buyers must accept, given the price tag.

The back is virtually identical to that of the other premier phones, with the exception of a triple rear camera arrangement in the extreme top-left corner and a “Walton” branding in the bottom left corner. Although the rear camera module is somewhat raised above the back panel, Walton has integrated a grooved, non-textured gradient light reflecting back design that covers the whole back surface. This seems to be a fingerprint magnet, necessitating the usage of rear coverings.

A 3.5mm jack is placed on the bottom with a micro USB connector, a loudspeaker, and a primary microphone. There is a dual SIM + memory card slot on the right and a power button and volume rockers on the left.

Display

Walton’s budget-friendly Primo H10 smartphone has a 6.52-inch IPS Display with a 720 x 1600-pixel resolution. It has a 20:9 aspect ratio and is equipped with IPS INCELL Technology and 2.5D Glass. Its regular maximum brightness is 400 nits.

Consumers may give the display a significant thumbs down owing to its low PPI density. Due to its aspect ratio, it is ideal for watching movies and playing games on a massive screen. However, it is restricted to HD+, which results in a viewing density of 269 PPI. To be honest, this will be a major upgrade for anybody upgrading from a basic phone. However, people will notice the difference if they are descending from a Full HD resolution; thus, this is subjective.

The colours are washed out and lifeless, and there is also a lack of colour fidelity. This is, however, the best an entry-level smartphone can give. Users may still pay a little more on the Primo H10 and other smartphones to have a better display.

Rear Cameras

The Primo H10 has a single back camera with a 13MP wide-angle lens, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth lens. Walton had to make certain concessions in order to maintain a lower price point than its predecessor. The Primo H10 is equipped with three rear cameras and one front camera.

In terms of the rear camera configuration in the daytime, the sensor is capable of producing decent images under optimal lighting conditions. The details are adequate, the colour reproduction is acceptable, and the photographs may even be compared to those of other high-end Walton smartphones. Due to the absence of a wider dynamic range on the primary camera, images may degrade somewhat, and HDR photographs are time-consuming. By and large, the photographs taken with the rear camera are mediocre.

Front Camera

Users will get a single 8MP front-facing camera capable of shooting high-quality photos throughout the day, which should come as no surprise considering the sensor’s size. Portrait mode is available for both the selfie and rear cameras. This is a powerful feature given the price point of the phone.

Portrait mode is effective at detecting edges but suffers when the subject is difficult to recognize. In summary, the portrait mode on the Primo H10 is a wonderful addition.

Performance and Software

The device is powered by a sluggish MediaTek Helio G35 Gaming Processor made in a 12nm process. It has an octa-core design with a top speed of 2.3GHz. It is equipped with an IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU, 64GB of internal storage, and 4GB of RAM.

It’s a budget smartphone equipped with a powerful CPU. Users will have no difficulty utilizing the smartphone for everyday tasks like calling, texting, browsing YouTube videos, and surfing. Unlocking the apps, on the other hand, might take an abnormal length of time. While switching between applications, the phone does slow down somewhat. The delay is rather evident when switching between two games or between a game and an app.

Users will be unable to fully experience visually demanding games such as Call of Duty: Mobile or PUBG Mobile. They’ll have to resort to their Lite mode, which means reducing graphics and frame rates unless they want to cook with their eyes but lack a cooktop; in that case, they may use their phones.

Users, on the other hand, may easily play less visually taxing games on their smartphone, such as Mobile Legends: Alto’s Odyssey.

Battery and Charging

The Walton Primo H10 has a large 5,000 mAh battery. It is above average, which, considering the fact that people are using a barebones smartphone, may signal a longer battery life. That’s over two days of battery life in the hands of an average user. By contrast, individuals may obtain an incredible 5 to 6 hours of SoT. Regardless of how well the battery performs as a consequence of the entry-level SoC, it is an important point of debate.

Price in Bangladesh

In Bangladesh, the Walton Primo H10 is available in a single configuration: 4GB RAM and 64GB ROM. The phone costs about BDT 12,999.

Conclusion

The Walton Primo H10 is completely unsuitable for consideration. It remains one of the cheapest smartphones on the market. It emphasizes making affordable phones with a maximum battery, display, and CPU capacity. Walton has retained a lot of aspects from the previous primo’s design, such as the CPU. It will be the best choice for consumers searching for a truly budget-friendly phone with maximum functionalities.
