The list is updated with latest smartphones launched in September 2018 or before. Honor 7A, Realme 2 and Realme 1 which were launched recently have been included in this list.

On the hardware side, you will see that most of the smartphones have 5 to 6 inch HD displays with 2 or 3GB of RAM and 16 or 32GB of storage. Some of the latest phones have bezel-less 18:9 aspect ratio displays or 19:9 notch displays.

Brief Review:

Oppo Realme 2 has been launched as the successor in just 4 months after the success of Oppo Realme 1. Realme 1 lacked a dual camera, a fingerprint sensor but at the pricing was a great phone. Oppo has launched Realme 2 at a similar pricing but with better specifications and follows the current trend and also covers up the features that were missing in the Oppo Realme 1.  It gets a notch display, beautiful design, long battery, dual camera and finally a fingerprint sensor all available under 10000. Let us look at the features, specifications and reviews of this great budget smartphone Oppo Realme 2.

Oppo Realme 2 comes with a 6.2 inch HD Plus screen having a resolution of 1520 X 720 pixels and has proper brightness and good viewing angles. The display has a notch design with an aspect ratio of 19:9. In terms of design, it comes with the OPPO famous diamond cut pattern that adds true beauty to the smartphone and it is easily the best-looking smartphone under 10000. 

Realme 2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor supported by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of memory. It scores around 77000 on the AnTuTu Benchmark and works smoothly in all the day to day usage so you can use depending on your usage. You can also play low to medium level games but high-end games face some lag issues. There is a 4GB 64 GB variant also available for this smartphone.

On the camera side, Realme has not disappointed this time as it comes with a Dual rear camera with 13MP which is the primary sensor and 2MP which is the depth sensor for the portrait effects. Here you get an HDR mode, portrait mode for blurring the background and also the beauty mode. The front camera is an 8 MP sensor which comes with the HDR mode and also supports depth effect using the software. The front camera also has AI beauty support to improve the selfie experience and offers you the best selfie. The shutter speed of the camera is quick and we could click pictures without any delay. The video recording support on the Realme 2 has a maximum 1080 pixel resolution and the audio quality is also recorded clear on the video.

Oppo Realme 2 runs on ColorOS 5.1 which is a custom skin based on Android Oreo 8.1 and comes with some third party apps preinstalled. Realme 2 has also introduced a fingerprint sensor which was missing on the Realme 1 smartphone. The fingerprint sensor is very quick and accurate. The smartphone also supports face unlocking supported by the front camera which is located in the notch. 

It has a proper dual sim support and a dedicated SD card slot that can expand the storage up to 256GB. It has a massive battery capacity of 4230 mAh and the phone still does not weigh heavy and can be easily held in hand. The battery gives a backup of around 1.5 to 2 days which is good for people who look for a long battery smartphone. It has a micro USB port available for charging and does not support fast charging and you get a 10W charger inside the box. There is not an IP rating on this phone and hence keep it protected from water and dust.

Overall, in this Oppo Realme 2, you get a stylish looking smartphone with a notch design, a good processor and camera for the price range, a massive battery and support for finger and face unlocking. Certainly, as per our review of Oppo Realme 2, it is the best phone under 10000.

Brief Review:

Infinix has been slowly and steadily grasping up some smartphone market share with its great value for money phone. With Infinix Hot S3 raking in some good sales number and great user reviews in the budget segment smartphone, Infinix Hot 6 Pro also looks to do the same with some great features and specifications for a pricing of under 8000. Let us check the review of each aspect from design, processor, camera, software and much more in this Infinix Hot 6 Pro.

In the design and display, Infinix Hot 6 Pro has a 5.99-inch screen with HD Plus resolution. It is a bezel-less display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and the screen is super bright, with great colour reproduction. The viewing angles of the display are also great as you can watch videos easily with the smartphone at different angles. Inifnix Hot 6 Pro is built of metal, yes metal and not plastic, and feels solid in hand.

On the performance side, Hot 6 Pro does pretty well given its price tag of 8k. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 and scores around 41000 on the Antutu benchmark. The smartphone comes with a 3 GB of RAM which very well supports the functional performance of Infinix Hot 6 Pro. It can easily run through your day to day tasks of watching videos, chatting, playing low-end games with decent multitasking experience, though high-end games and heavy multitasking are a big no, and it would not be fair to expect that from a phone under 8000.

Infinix Hot 6 Pro comes with 32 GB of internal memory and a dedicated MicroSD card slot to expand the storage by up to 128 GB. So it can be used as a proper dual sim phone with expanded storage.  It has a 3.5 mm headphone jack, charging port and a single speaker located at the bottom. The box comes with a 5V 2A charger and a protective transparent back case and a screen protector.

Talking about the most important aspect of a smartphone nowadays, the camera. In the camera segment, Infinix Hot 6 Pro again shatters the roof. It has a dual rear camera of 13 MP main sensor and a 2MP depth sensor. Previous Infinix phones have been great camera performer and Hot 6 Pro also does a pretty good job. The images look natural in both day and artificial light conditions and the bokeh mode also works well. The rear camera also supports an HDR mode which brightens up the image. This smartphone also supports 1080 p video recording.

On the front camera, we have a 5 MP sensor with LED flash. The camera works great in the price range and also has support for software-based bokeh mode. Overall, the camera does a wonderful job and Infinix Hot 6 Pro is certainly the best camera phone under 8000. 

It runs on Android Oreo 8.0 and has a custom XOS skin over the Android. The skin is smooth is usage but has some bloatware. It has a massive battery of 4000 mAh and can easily power the phone for around 1.5 days. Despite a huge battery and metal body design, the phone feels light and comfortable to hold in hand. There is no IP rating on this phone which is very well understood for a phone priced at 7999. Hot 6 Pro also supports face and fingerprint unlocking which are pretty accurate and fast. It has a single speaker but is very loud and very well enhances from the experience of watching videos or playing games.

With this Hot 6 Pro, Infinix with metal body design, great camera, face unlocking and a massive battery gives a strong competition to the likes of Redmi 5. Redmi Y2 and Honor 7C. This phone easily gets the tag of the best phone under 8000 and completely sets the tone for the next line of price point competition in the budget segment phones. The smartphone will be available for sale from 17th July and is being sold exclusively via Flipkart. 

If you are looking for a performance beast, you can look at the Oppo Realme 1

Brief Review:

Huawei has launched Honor 7A and Honor 7C which become the latest in line to Huawei’s budget offerings. Honor 7A features a 5.7-inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels making a PPI of ~282. The smartphone is quite comfortable and feels a lot better in hand while usage. Huawei has put an 18:9 display in Its bid to get more people get this smartphone. There are some bezels on the sides and some bigger ones on the top and bottom. The display is 720p but is good enough for most of the tasks. The viewing angles are decent. Sunlight readability is not the best on Honor 7A.

Above the display are the front camera sensor, earpiece, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor. On the rear, there’s much anticipated dual camera setup which is not vertically stacked like every other smartphone, right now. The LED flash is included in the camera cutout which is kind of different from the rest. The circular fingerprint sensor sits at horizontal center just a few centimeters from the camera housing. On the bottom, we find a Micro-USB and a 3.5mm audio jack, accompanied by speaker grill, nothing fancy. 

Honor 7A features Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 at Its core which has an octa-core CPU with 4x1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 and 4x1.1 GHz Cortex A53. To handle the graphics workload, Adreno 505 is on-chip as well, coupled with plush 3GB of RAM. In real life usage, the smartphone will be keeping up the pace quite easily but don’t expect serious multitasking and a lot of stuff going around together without some hiccups. Otherwise, the performance is super smooth for everyday usage. Adreno 505 does pretty good at most games but gets the system warm on heavy titles on the Play Store, so If you want to play lots of games, Honor 7A might not be the best choice. The 3GB of RAM does a good job in keeping the software experience fluid and responsive at all times. The device comes with 32GB of onboard storage which is expandable up to 256GB using MicroSD cards.

Like other Snapdragon 430 phones, the Honor 7A scores around 45000 on Antutu Benchmarks which is a decent score for phone in this price range.

Since no one is letting go of the dual camera craze, Honor 7A hits right on spot with dual camera setup sporting 13 MP + 2 MP, f/2.2 sensors with LED flash. For the love of selfies, we have an 8.0 MP, f/2.0 sensor up top of the display. The rear camera performance is good in outdoor well-lit conditions. Images look sharp with a good amount of details. Portrait/Bokeh effect also seems to work well. The camera performance indoors under low light conditions is average though which is expected from phones in this price range. There is no image stabilization so videos will be shaky.

The front camera also performs well in outdoor conditions. We weren’t expecting much from a budget camera like this one and clearly, Huawei is no mood of breaking the stereotypes. The camera performance is more or less equal to the competitors in the range where we see the likes of Xiaomi with some pretty average cameras, Nokia and Motorola are doing relatively better but not by a big difference.

Out of the box, Huawei Honor 7A will run on Android 8.0 Oreo with Huawei’s custom EMUI 8.0 on top. EMUI 8.0 has evolved a lot from being a gimmicky loaded skin to a refined, responsive and unobtrusive Android experience, there are still a lot of features you won’t ever use, hidden inside some UI clunks, thanks to past legacy but In all Its a stutter-free experience and RAM management is good as well, so we rate the software experience as good if not great. Since It is still EMUI, there are still unnecessary pre-installed apps which you can’t remove and It still doesn’t believe in minimalism and material design.

Honor 7A comes with a 3000mAH battery which should last a day in all scenarios but there is no sight of fast charging so we are kind of bummed here. Huawei’s SuperCharging tech would have been appreciated highly here but since these are budget grounds, we can’t blame them hard. The battery backup will be 1 day on medium usage and 1.5 days on light usage. There is a Micro-USB port for charging at the bottom of the phone. There are no stereo speakers, just a single one firing downwards which is loud enough. There is no special force with the 3.5mm jack so we don’t expect some out of line audio performance on Honor 7A. Moreover, the smartphone hasn’t been handed any IP rating so It would be safe to keep it away from liquids and dust.

Since we’ve used ‘budget’ all over the writing, Huawei Honor 7A is priced at ₹ 8,999 in India and is available exclusively on Flipkart. In terms of pricing, we don’t find It to be that aggressive but It is not bad either. There are a lot of good things in this smartphone and the price is justified.

Huawei has not been a giant in India despite their presence for quite some time in India, most of their revenue comes from the budget segment and they are not wrong to reinforce their biggest gainer with the top of the line features and trends in 2018. Huawei’s is certainly getting good at making complete smartphones and providing value for money. Honor 7A just exemplifies that.

Brief Review:

Realme 1 is an Oppo branded smartphone which comes with a very attractive pricing and features. This phone will be sold exclusively via Amazon and if you want to grow above the likes of Xiaomi, this phone can totally fill the gap. Let us find out what all it holds in this review.

From the design perspective, Realme 1 has a 6 inch Full HD Plus display with a bezel-less display and 18:9 aspect ratio. The display quality is amazing with perfect colour reproduction and clarity. On the back, it has a glass finish with glossy effect and a diamond cut pattern (as seen on the Oppo F7 and Oppo A83) that looks completely beautiful but is also a bit of a fingerprint magnet. On the design front, this is a great looking smartphone.

Let us now talk about the performance, this Realme 1 from Oppo uses a very powerful processor Helio P60 from MediaTek that scores around 135000 on the Antutu Benchmark. This score indicates the Helio P60 powering the Oppo Realme 1 beats the likes of Redmi Note 5 Pro which is powered by Snapdragon 636. The Antutu score depicts the performance of the phone and with our usage we found the phone to be replicating the same. It gave a powerful performance with not even a slightest of lag or issue with any sort of multitasking.

In the Camera department, Realme 1 comes with a single rear sensor of 13MP with LED flash and an 8 MP sensor on the front. The rear camera images have a good amount of details but when the images are zoomed in, there is a bit of noise that can be seen. The Realme 1 uses AI and beautification mode to enhance the images. On the front camera, we again have the option of bokeh effect, the image quality is good with sharp colours and clarity. Both the rear and the front camera features AR stickers.  Comparing the camera performance, the Redmi Note 5 Pro camera absolutely stands out in both rear and front camera with punchier details and better clarity but Oppo Realme 1 camera is much better than the Redmi Note 5.

This smartphone uses Color OS 5.0 as its operating system which is based on Android 8.1. This is the same operating system version seen on oppo F7. There is very little bloatware and comes with some much-needed features that ease the use of your phone.

Oppo Realme 1 comes with face unlocking using the front camera but does not have a fingerprint sensor. Face unlocking is becoming more popular nowadays with most of the smartphone featuring it and users have been comfortable in using it. So the removal of fingerprint sensor should not be a roadblock for this phone but is a move from Oppo to cut down the cost and offer a great price. It is a dual sim phone with a dedicated SD Card slot that can be expanded up to 256 GB.  It also has a 3.5 mm headphone jack but no Type C port.

This phone has a battery of 3410 mAH which can easily last for a day with normal usage. Oppo claims that the phone has AI battery management features which learns as per the usage beahiour and shuts down the background apps to enhance the battery backup. Realme 1 does not support fast charging and will take about 130-150 minutes for a full charge. This smartphone from Oppo weighs only 155 gm and feels comfortable in hand. There is no IP rating on Realme 1 so you will have to keep the phone safe from dust and water.

Let us now talk about the pricing, this smartphone from Oppo comes in 3 variants of 3GB/32GB variant priced at Rs 8999, 4GB/64GB variant priced at Rs 10999, 6GB/128GB variant priced at Rs 13999. The pricing as per specification this phone offers is very competitive and holds the mettle to rake in very good sales and demand.

This Oppo Realme 1 is a powerful beast and the variant are a great value for money. It has perfect looks, performance and a decent camera for the price range. If you have a budget of under 10000 or under 12000, then buying the Oppo Realme 1 makes a lot of sense as you get the same processor(in 3GB and 4GB model) and features which actually stands out when compared with any other phone in the price range of 10000.

If you are looking on this phone with a perspective of the camera, then it is a bit of disappointment, especially when comparing the 6GB model priced similarly with the Redmi Note 5 Pro, 4 GB model having a top-notch camera quality.  But on the other side, if the camera is not your topmost priority but you are looking for a power house, then the 6GB model at the pricing of 13999 can happily suffice your requirements.

Brief Review:

Infinix Hot S3 is the lastest smartphone from Infinix launched on 6th Feb in India. The Hot S3 is a selfie-centric phone with a 20MP front camera. It also comes with a bezel-less display of aspect ratio 18:9 which has been a trend lately.  Infinix Hot S3 comes with a 5.65-inch screen with HD+ resolution, the display is an IPS display protected by 2.5D curved glass and Gorilla glass protection. The phone is easy to hold in hand and feels light in weight even though it comes with a large 4000mAh battery.

Infinix Hot S3 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor and runs on Android 8 Oreo. It is not stock android though. It runs on Infinix's own custom skin which doesn't look that great but does perform well. There are few extra apps but not a lot of bloatware which is a good thing.

The phone comes in 2 variants of 3GB RAM with 32 GB internal storage and 4GB of RAM with 64 GB of internal storage. The Antutu benchmark score of Infinix Hot S3 is around 44000.

The camera performance of Infinix Hot S3 is impressive for the price, it has a rear camera of 13MP resolution. The camera performs well in daylight and under low light the performance is average. The front camera, which is USP of the device, is a 20MP camera with a selfie dual-tone flash. The front camera on Infinix Hot S3 is great for taking selfies. The pictures look great under daylight. Low light selfies also come out well because of dual-tone flash. Overall the camera performance is good. There is also beautify mode which is something a lot of people like.

Infinix Hot S3 also worked well in the gaming department with no noticeable lag observed even in the high-end games like Asphalt 8, Modern Combat 5. The fingerprint sensor is on the back and is pretty accurate.

The battery for Infinix Hot S3 has a good capacity of 4000mAH. With an efficient chipset like Snapdragon 430, you can expect it to last for 1.5 days with heavy usage and 2 days with light usage which is excellent battery backup.

The Hot S3 comes with a dedicated micro SD card slot which can be used to increase the storage by up to 128GB. Thumbs up to Infinx for going with a dedicated MicroSD card slot.

The Infinix Hot S3 is not waterproof or dustproof so no IP rating is there for it. We hope that in few years budget smartphones will also have IP ratings.

Overall, the Infinix Hot S3 ticks all the right boxes. It has a nice display, good cameras, excellent battery and a decent entry-level chipset. The selfie camera is the USP of the device. We like the device and would call it one of the best smartphones under 10000. It will compete with the Lenovo K8 Plus and Redmi Y1, which are also really good devices.

Update: Infinix Hot S3 has received face unlocking feature via a software update. Now you can unlock the device just by looking at it.

6. Smartron t.phone P

t.phone P

Features

  • 3 GB RAM | 32 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 128 GB
  • 5.2 inch HD Display 720p
  • Back Camera: 13MP
  • Front Camera: 5MP
  • 5000mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Black Colors

Best Price ₹7999



Brief Review:

Smartron t.phone P is the latest device in the Indian market and it will go on sale on Flipkart on 17th Jan. Smartron t.phone P has a long and confusing name. A simple name like Smartron P would have been better. It has been priced at 7999. Let's take a look at what it offers.

Smartron t phone P comes with a metallic build which feels good in the hand. The battery inside the phone is massive at 5000 mAh. Even with this large battery, the phone doesn't feel heavy. Its weight is 160g and thickness is under 9mm. So Smartron has done a good job by keeping the weight low. The phone feels comfortable in the hand and is easy to use.

The display on the front is 5.2-inch display with 720p HD resolution. The display is good for the price with good colors and decent viewing angles. The 5.2-inch display size makes the phone handy and can be used with one hand.

For security, there is a fingerprint sensor on the back of Smartron t phone P which is quick and accurate. 

On the camera side, you will see a 13MP sensor at the back and 5MP camera sensor at the front. The camera performance is average as there is a lot of noise in indoor low light pictures. Outdoor shots look better though. The front camera has similar performance as well. As the Smartron t.phone P is priced under 8000 we can't complain much. 

Inside the Smartron t.phone P, we have a Snapdragon 435 chipset with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The storage can be increased with a MicroSD card but the sim slot is hybrid so you cannot use 2 sim cards and a MicroSD at the same time. The SD435 is a decent entry-level chipset and with 3GB of RAM, it can handle multitasking with ease. Popular games also run well and there was no lag. So overall performance of the device is very decent and no complaints regarding that.

The Smartron t.phone P scores around 45000 on Antutu benchmark and  686/2647 single-core/multi-core on the Geekbench benchmark. These scores are similar to other phones in this segment like the Redmi 4 and Redmi Y1. Lenovo K8 Plus runs on Mediatek chipset and scores more than 60000 on Antutu so it is more powerful than Smartron t.phone P.

The battery inside the phone is massive 5000 mAh. Coupled with a 720p display and efficient Snapdragon 435 chipset, it is an excellent recipe for excellent battery backup. You can expect 2-3 days of backup on a single charge. The phone comes with a 5V 2Amp charger so charging time of the device will be around 3 hours.

The Smartron t.phone P is not waterproof or dustproof no IP rating is there. It would be a good idea to keep it away from water and sand.

Overall, Smartron t.phone P is a value for money device with a massive battery. If you hate charging your phone and your budget is around 8000 then go for it. If you like Redmi then Redmi 4 is a great option. If you can spend little more then go for Lenovo K8 Plus(See review) which is more powerful and comes with a dual camera and if you like to take selfies then you should go for Redmi Y1(See review) as it comes with a great front camera.

7. Redmi 5A

5A

Features

  • 2 GB RAM | 16 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 128 GB
  • 5 inch HD Display 720p
  • Back Camera: 13MP
  • Front Camera: 5MP
  • 3000mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Grey, Gold Colors

Best Price ₹5999



Brief Review:

Xiaomi Redmi 5A is the latest cheapest 4G VOLTE device in the market from Xiaomi. It is priced at Rs. 4999 for the 2GB 16GB variant and Rs. 6999 for the 3GB 32GB variant. The 4999 pricing is limited to first 50 lac devices only after that price will be increased to 5999. 50 Lac is a decent number so we don't see any issues.

Now coming to the build quality, Redmi 5A is made of plastic but feels good in the hand. The back is coated and looks like metal so at first look you won't even realize that it is not a metal unibody design. The plastic built of the device helps to keep the weight at just 137 grams which is a good thing. Metal phones are nice but they don't bring much to the table except extra weight and we are not a fan of that.

Redmi 5A is a 5-inch device so you will not face any problems with one hand usage. The display resolution is HD 720p. It is bright and colors are accurate. The viewing angles are also fine.

In the camera department, Redmi 5A has some decent numbers. The rear camera is 13MP F2.2 PDAF and the front camera is a 5MP shooter. The camera performance is average from both camera but considering the price point, we can't expect much.

On the top of Redmi 5A, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack and an infrared sensor which means you can use it as a remote for home appliances. Cheers to Xiaomi for adding useful features like these in budget devices.

Inside the Redmi 5A, there is a 3000 mAh battery and Snapdragon 425 Chipset. Snapdragon 425 is a low-end chipset but is very efficient. You should be able to get 1.5 to 2 days battery backup with normal use.

Redmi 5A comes in 2 variants with 2GB RAM 16GB storage and 3GB RAM 32GB storage. We would suggest you go for 3GB 32GB variant if you use your phone a lot as the extra 1GB RAM will help in multitasking. If your usage is basic like calling and WhatsApp Facebook then you can opt for the lower 2GB 16GB variant. 

As you can see, a lot of things on the Redmi 5A is same as Redmi 4A with one major change. Xiaomi has added a dedicated MicroSD slot in the Redmi 5A which can be used to increase the storage by up to 128GB. We always hated the hybrid slot so we are very happy to see Xiaomi going for the dedicated slot.

The Antutu benchmark score of the Redmi 5A is around 35000 which is expected because of the Snapdragon 425. This is by no means a high score, but for a device priced at 5000, this is great. As you can expect there is no IP rating for this device. We do hope that someday budget devices like the Redmi 5A will be IP67 rated.

For security, you have to rely on PIN lock as there is no fingerprint sensor on the Redmi 5A. 

So overall everything is basic and average on the Redmi 5A and you cannot expect much at this price. In this price range, you will not find a better phone. If you can spend more then we recommend Redmi 4 which offers better processor, better battery, metallic back and fingerprint sensor.

Brief Review:

10.or E (Tenor E) is the latest android phone launched with Android Nougat 7.1.2 upgradable to Android Oreo and is available on Amazon India exclusively.

Tenor (10.or) E comes powered with Snapdragon 430, which is an entry-level chipset and can handle everyday tasks easily and might struggle with heavy gaming. It comes with a 5.5-inch 2.5D curved screen and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The body at the back looks like metal but is a polycarbonate body, nonetheless, it feels good in the hand. The design clearly seems to be inspired by Redmi Note 3.The curved sides allow easy gripping of the phone, the build quality is good but the looks are somewhat between decent to good.
 
However, the phone is solid in the specifications and performance. Tenor (10.or) E comes with a 13MP rear camera with single LED flash. The front camera is a 5MP shooter. Both front and rear camera have a good shutter speed, with some inbuilt filters and beauty modes. Overall, in our initial reviews, the camera quality seems really appreciable at this price point. 
 
10.or E comes with a massive 4000mAh battery and does not feel heavy considering the battery size. The battery for this in a normal usage can last for about 2 days. Tenor E comes with a dedicated SD Card slot allowing it to be used a proper dual sim phone with memory expandable up to 128GB. The fingerprint sensor at the back of the phone has a good response time. The bottom of the phone consists of a loudspeaker and a charging slot.
 
Overall, we expect good performance in day to day usage, and with stock Android experience and latest security patches from Tenor (10.or), the Tenor E seems to be one of the best in this price range. Stock Android experience and Snapdragon 430 are available in Nokia 6 but Tenor E is available at half the price of Nokia 6, with similar performance.
 
Tenor E comes in two variants, 2GB + 16GB at Rs 7999 and 3GB + 32GB  at 8999. If you are looking for a dual sim phone with a decent overall performance, you can look to buy Tenor E, we would suggest you go for 3GB variant as it would support better multitasking.
 
Tenor (10.or) had also recently launched 10.or G which is also exclusively available from Amazon comes with a Dual Camera and a better front camera than Tenor E starting at Rs 10999, See Full Review here.

9. Motorola C Plus

Features

  • 2 GB RAM | 16 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 32 GB
  • 5 inch HD Display 720p
  • Back Camera: 8MP
  • Front Camera: 1MP
  • 4000mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Starry Black, Fine Gold Colors

Best Price ₹6999



Brief Review:

Moto C Plus is the cheapest Motorola device on the market right now but it is not a great value for money phone. The device is made of plastic. The back has a metal finish but it is plastic and it can be removed to insert the battery, sim cards and memory card. The display on the front is 5inch 720p HD display. The display is just average with just okay viewing angles. On the top of display, there is a front camera of just 2MP with flash. Now adding a flash to front is great but with 2MP camera? That does not sound great. On the back there is a 8MP camera which performs well in daylight. On the inside there is a Mediatek chipset with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. Now the processor is not powerful enough to quickly load apps and 2GB memory is not enough to hold a lot of apps so day to day usage with this phone might feel laggy. Overall this is just an average phone with a huge battery which means the battery backup will be great. At 6999 this does not look a great deal. Redmi 4 looks like a better option than this because it has a fingerprint sensor, a better processor which will speed things up and a better front and back camera and a metal uni-body design.

10. Samsung Galaxy J3 Pro

Galaxy J3 Pro

Features

  • 2 GB RAM | 16 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 128 GB
  • 5 inch HD Display 720p
  • Back Camera: 8MP
  • Front Camera: 5MP
  • 2600mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Black, White, Gold Colors

Best Price ₹7490



Brief Review:

Samsung Galaxy J3 Pro, as the name suggests, is the Pro version of the Galaxy J3 launched by Samsung last year. This handset comes with a 5-inch of the screen with Super AMOLED display, the viewing angles and colors are vivid. Galaxy J3 Pro is sort of a fresh design from Samsung, barring the similar looks on every budget phone, this handset comes with leather finishing at the back and round edges making it comfortable holding in hand.

Samsung J3 Pro is powered by 1.5 GHz quad core Spreadtrum Processor and packs 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory which is expandable up to 128GB with a dedicates SD Card slot. One limitation here is that of limited RAM, which does not allow smooth multitasking on the phone. It comes with a removable 2600mAH battery which is sufficient for almost a day with normal usage, continuous gaming or the internet usage will reduce the battery backup.

The rear camera on the handset is an 8MP shooter with LED flash and the front camera is a 5MP shooter. The Camera quality is decent in this price range but not the best. There are various modes and filters available in Camera in the Galaxy J3 Pro, but there is noise in low lighting condition in both rear and front camera.

The gaming performance is J3 Pro is good in this price range. Though some lag or frame drops can be noticed in high-end games at maximum graphics setting otherwise, it is a smooth experience playing games. The temperature of the phone remains in optimum range even after about 20-25 minutes of continuous gaming.

The Galaxy J3 Pro is preloaded with Make for India features like Ultra Data Saving and S-bike mode. This phone though misses on some sensors like Auto-brightness(but with a capability of outdoor mode) and Gyroscope. These sensors are usually seen missing in Samsung phones below the 25,000 budget.

Overall, the phone does a decent job in this price range barring the limited RAM. The Samsung phones always come at a premium because of the brand and build quality. Anyone, looking to use it for not so high ended usage can buy it. Some of the other phones that can be seen in the similar price range are Redmi 4, Samsung Galaxy J2 Pro.
