This handset is packed inside a full metal body with a very good build quality and finishing. On Nxt is comfortable to hold, not at all slippery (back panel is with a matte finish).  Speaker vent is on the right side just above the power button – usually speaker is placed on the back or bottom.

Gaming

MC5 (Modern Combat 5) game clearly lagged and the Asphalt 8 game was also lagging in high visual quality mode. (check video review).

Camera

Main camera is 13MP with f/1.9 aperture and with flash support. Front camera is 8MP also with f/1.9 aperture. Camera can shoot FHD videos at 30fps. Camera quality is above average.

Finger print sensor

Present – home button, finger print scanning is decently fast and accurate.

Others

There is LED notification and two sensors – accelerometer and proximity. Light sensor is missing – you will need to manually adjust the brightness.

Network  / Connectivity

4G LTE, VoLTE works I tested with Reliance Jio. No issues with networks. WiFi, Bluetooth and GPS also worked well.

Battery

The 3300 mAh non-removable battery does a good job – 4 to 5 hours non-stop moderate to heavy usage.

Samsung Galaxy On Nxt Battery Performance (time / battery % drop / estimated battery temperature)

  • Running Benchmark app : 19 minutes / 6% / 32 degrees
  • Asphalt 8 + MC5 game play : 26 minutes / 9% / 32 degrees
  • FHD video playback with full brightness (WiFi /4G on) : 25 minutes / 10% / 33 degrees.

Handset heat up is under control – max battery temperature encountered was 33 degrees.

It took me 1 hour 40 minutes to charge from 3% to 100% using wall charger.

Verdict

The On Nxt is powered by octa core processor however when it comes to gaming the hardware fails to perform. Rest of the features are pretty good, camera quality is above average and battery life is decent.

For Rs. 18,490 this handset is pricey.

Rating 3 out of 5

Samsung Galaxy On Nxt is available for Rs. 18,490 (Black and Gold color options).
