Having just looked into the Xiaomi Redmi 6A ₹ 5,999 (Review) and Tecno Camon i4 ₹ 8,887 (Review), we have a reasonable thought of how the MediaTek Helio A22 performs. While looking through the Android menus and exchanging between applications, we noticed slack. Bigger applications take longer than expected to stack on the grounds that the processor isn’t amazing.
Since the Nokia 2.2 passes up a unique mark scanner, HMD Global offers face acknowledgment. This component utilizes the 5-megapixel selfie camera to remember you and open the cell phone. We observed the procedure to be moderate, and it took considerably longer in low-light conditions.

Fundamental recreations like Hill Climb Racing 2 fared better and were playable with no slack or falter

The camera was additionally moderate to spare shots and prepare to give us a chance to take the following one. Photographs taken in low light were dull and had a great deal of grain. Be that as it may, the camera managed to convey more splendid pictures utilizing HDR. Since there is no night mode, we prescribe that you take low-light shots with HDR empowered.
There is no representation mode, so you won’t most likely take shots with obscured foundations. The selfie camera is additionally carefully normal. Photographs needed detail and furthermore watched washed-out. HDR is accessible for the selfie camera however it didn’t appear to have any kind of effect as far as we can tell.
Video recording maxes out at 1080p for both the essential just as the selfie cameras. Be that as it may, video is spared in the old 3GP configuration, though most different cell phones spare recordings in the MP4 design. Since there is no video adjustment, you will get insecure outcomes. We likewise saw a center chasing issue while recording video.
