Brief Review:

Vivo, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer is on a streak of launching some great smartphones, painting the full display screen and notch over the world. Vivo Y83, launched recently in India is not exactly a budget device but falls slightly above the mark in sub ₹ 15k range, which is a pretty fiery segment to be competing in with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, Asus Zenfone Max Pro and many more, Could Vivo Y83 best them all? Let’s find out.

If you have been around the Vivo camp for a while, you know about the company’s conspicuous ‘inspirations’ from Cupertino boys. It’s time to face the truth that abhor it, love It, notches are the new cool and Vivo knows how to play with brand value and style status. Ergo, we find the full view, notched, 6.22 inch IPS LCD display on the Vivo Y83 with a super tall aspect ratio of 19:9. The display as goes full stretch to the ends with a noticeable chin at the bottom.

The display has a resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels which clocks in a pixel density of 270 PPI. We expected better but nonetheless, the display is bright and gives a satisfactory viewing experience, with decent viewing angles and nothing marvellous. The sunlight readability is not quite legit, though. The metal back with matte finish looks not so flashy but feels good in hands. The design is not very striking, with curved edges but It is quite comfortable to hold. The shiny metal finish rim encloses volume controls, sleep/wake button on the sides and to our satisfaction, a 3.5mm jack on the bottom with standard MicroUSB port for charging. If you’ve seen Vivo V9, X21 then Y83 feels quite similar. At just 7.7mm thick, Y83 is quite sleek and weighs just 150 grams which is quite appreciable for a smartphone over 6-inches.

Vivo Y83 is powered by the latest MediaTek processor: Helio P22 which is built on 12nm process and provides good performance and power efficiency. Vivo Y83 scores around 70000 on Antutu benchmarks which is similar to the phones powered by Snapdragon 625 or 630. Vivo Y83 performs well and just rolls over all the workloads we could through at It. No lags, no stutters. The system performance is smooth and fluid at all times even with a plethora of apps running at tandem, thanks to 4GB of RAM.

The smartphone comes with 32GB of onboard storage which can be easily expanded to 256GB via MicroSD. In our first impressions, we found casual gaming to be quite smooth and free-flowing, we are not too confident about heavy gaming yet. Stay tuned for the full review. In all, the smartphone seems like a stunner in performance with some clouds over gaming performance but Its quite above the danger mark though.

The primary camera on the Vivo Y83 is a 13 MP (f/2.2) sensor with LED Flash and It is like every budget mediocre camera out there, nothing out of the line, satisfactory shots with some good detail but plenty of noise. Low-light photos are full of grains, It is practically just surviving in harsh lighting conditions. The front sensor is in the same tune with 8 MP (f/2.2) sensor which does a pretty decent selfie job and again, in low-lights its just shooting out in the wild with superb noise levels. Vivo has something called AI beautification mode, which is supposedly meant to enhance selfies, we didn’t find a whole lot ‘AI’ involved in the process, It was more a softening and adding beauty filters process much like most camera apps in Play Store do.

Let's talk about software now. Vivo software skin called FunTouch OS on top of Android Oreo 8.1 run the show on this smartphone. FunTouch OS is another element of Vivo ideology that is inspired heavily from iOS, even to elemental things like the app icons. It just takes it so much towards iOS and so far from Android that the user feels in a limbo. It is heavily bloated and it is not an amazing feeling swiping through the screens and using gestures as they are not very smooth and kinda stick sometimes which is really annoying. There are a host of minor nagging issues here and there in the skin which sums up resulting in quite a struggling experience. Vivo can love iOS and Apple all they want but they need to refine. It has been long since FunTouch received a meaningful upgrade, Vivo folks really need to up their game in software to craft a utopian experience around their devices.

Vivo Y83 comes with a non-removable 3260mAH battery which is decent enough for a day on medium use, If you are a pusher, carrying a charger would be the best policy as this device won’t last an entire day on heavy use. There’s a MicroUSB port on the bottom of the device for charging, what’s sad is that there is no fast charging, which makes charging this device a long process occupying nearly 2.5-3 hours. The single downward firing speaker on the bottom beside the charging port gets loud enough. It pumps well-balanced sound with decent clarity. Vivo Y83 also Active noise cancellation with dedicated mic, so the in-call noise is reduced and It works nicely.

In your interest, you are hereby informed that there is no IP rating for the smartphone, so It would be nice to keep it way far from liquids and dust to ensure Its life and working capacity. Since there’s is all the notch and full-screen display, you might have been missing some FaceID ripoff and Vivo doesn’t disappoint. There is face unlock feature going by the name of Face Access and It works perfectly in most scenarios except low-lighting conditions.

Vivo Y83 is priced at ₹ 14,990 and Customers can get the smartphone from any offline retail store or from Amazon, or the company's official website. At this price, we think it is a good option for those who are looking for a big display phone with a notch. The phone performs well in multitasking and casual gaming as well but it is not the best in this range for those use-cases. The camera performance is also decent in daylight conditions but low light images can be disappointing. 

Beautiful Design, Nice Display, Good Performance, Dedicated MicroSD makes it one of the best 4GB RAM phones under 15000.

Brief Review:

Asus has partnered with Flipkart to launch exclusive smartphones for next 3 years. Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is the first smartphone to be launched under the partnership. The Zenfone Max Pro M1 has specs similar to Redmi Note 5 Pro which has been doing very well in the Indian market. Let's take a look at the brief review of Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1.

Below is an overview of Zenfone Max Pro. If you are interested to know more about this phone take a look at our in-depth review of Asus Zenfone Max Pro.

The Zenfone Max Pro M1 comes with a 5.99-inch display with Full HD+ resolution. The display has 450 nits brightness and is very colourful and vivid. The viewing angles are good as well. The display is covered with a 2.5D glass which gives it a premium look. Asus has reduced the bezels on the top and bottom so the overall size of the phone is still same as a 5.5-inch device. The design is bit boring though. You get metal unibody design so nothing special or new here. The phone weighs 180 grams which is surprising considering the massive 5000 mah battery it carries. Overall, the phone feels good in the hand. 

Let's talk about the battery which is the USP of this device. The Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 comes with a large 5000 mah battery which will provide a battery backup of 2 to 3 days on a single charge. If you hate charging your phone every day then you are going to love Max Pro M1. Asus claims that it can run Youtube for 20 hours. The phone comes with a 10-watt charger and it charging time is expected to be little less than 3 hours. The charging time is decent considering the large battery size.

Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 comes with a dual 13MP + 5MP rear camera with a 1.12-micron pixel size for better low light performance. The camera performance is good under daylight outdoor conditions. The pictures look colorful with a good amount of details. The camera can take portrait mode pictures as well. In our initial tests, the bokeh effect looked good with proper edge detection. The rear camera can also record 4K videos. Asus claims that this is the best camera in class. We would wait for an in-depth comparison with Redmi Note 5 Pro which has an excellent camera setup both on the front and back.

The selfie camera on the Zenfone Max Pro M1 is an 8MP shooter with a LED flash. The front camera is a decent performer in outdoor lighting. Under low lighting conditions or artificial lighting, the selfie camera performance is average.

The chipset inside the Zenfone Max Pro M1 is Snapdragon 636 which was launched globally with Redmi Note 5 Pro. The SD636 chipset is very powerful and can handle any task you throw at it. Using multiple apps and games is going to be a breeze. Thanks to the powerful chipset, Zenfone Max Pro M1 scores around 116000 on the Antutu Benchmarks which is a bit higher than the score of Redmi Note 5 Pro.

Asus is taking audio quality very seriously as well. There is a Maxxbox which amplifies the sound by 2X. For audio via 3.5 mm jack, Asus has added an NXP audio chipset which improves the sound quality. Sound quality is usually not given importance in the mid-range devices so it is good to see Asus doing something different here to improve the user experience.

On Software side, you get pure Android Oreo on Zenfone Max Pro M1. This is a great step from Asus. There is almost no bloatware on the device. Asus promises to provide next 2 big Android updates as well. So you will get Android P and Android Q

The Zenfone Max Pro M1 comes in 2 variants: 32GB storage and 3GB RAM variant would cost your Rs. 10999 and 64GB - 4GB variant will cost you 12999 only. This is excellent pricing from Asus. Asus has used LPDDR4X RAM which should improve the overall experience. If you are a heavy user then go for the 4GB RAM variant as the extra 1 gig of RAM should help a lot in multi-tasking. The MicroSD slot is dedicated so you can use 2 sim cards with a MicroSD card. 

Overall, we think Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is an impressive device. It comes with the latest display, powerful chipset, decent cameras, pure Android. Multitasking is great and the battery lasts for 2 days. It is clearly one of the best phones in this price range.

It will be available on Flipkart from 3rd May. A new 6GB RAM variant with better camera setup will be launched after some time at Rs. 14999.

6 inch 18:9 Display, Stock Android, Good Camera, Excellent Battery makes it one of the best 4GB RAM phones under 15000.

Brief Review:

Xiaomi has grown tremendously over last 2 years and disrupted the Smartphone Market to become the leader. This is credited to the success of Redmi 4, Redmi 4A and Redmi Note 4 which were bestsellers last year.  On 14th Feb, Xiaomi has launched Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro in India and is set to break and shake the industry again. Check out Redmi Note 5 here.

Redmi Note 5 comes with a 5.99-inch Bezelless(18:9) display which looks beautiful and marks the entry of Xiaomi in bezel-less phones in the budget segment. The infinity display has a resolution of 1080p Full HD Plus which good viewing angles and vibrant and punchier colors. Note 5 Pro has a metal unibody design and a very strong build quality, something inspired by the Redmi Note 4.

The display size, though, has increased to 5.99 inches, the size of the device is almost same as other 5.5 inch devices as Xiaomi has reduced the bezels. So if you are using a 5.5-inch device, you won't find any difficulty operating with Redmi 5 Pro. With no bezels, the navigation buttons move to On-Screen buttons.

On the Camera side, the smartphone does a wonderful job, it comes with a Dual Rear Camera with a Sony12MP sensor with f2.2 aperture and a Samsung 5MP sensor with f2.0 aperture. These 2 lenses on the back are stacked vertically, similar to something seen in iPhone X. The dual camera can take excellent portrait mode pictures with bokeh effect. Performance is similar to what we saw on Mi A1.

On the Front Camera, we have a special selfie-focused Sony IMX376 sensor, with a resolution of 20MP and f2.0 aperture. It is a great camera for selfies lovers. There is flash on the front side so low light selfies also look decent. Do note that the front camera is capable of taking portrait mode selfies as well with bokeh effect. During our initial test, the selfies came out sharp. The portrait mode worked well with good edge detection and blur effect. We think Redmi 5 Pro is probably the best selfie phone from Xiaomi.

Let's talk about video recording now. Redmi Note series has been weak with video recording as there was no stabilization available. But things have changed now and Redmi Note 5 Pro has EIS(Electronic Stabilization) so the videos won't be shaky and will look much better than other Redmi Series smartphones. In our initial tests, the videos looked good and stabilization also worked well. There's no option to record 4K videos so that a negative.

The camera on both front and rear does a brilliant job overall and you won't have any complaints given the price point at which Xiaomi offers all these features. This Camera performance of Redmi Note 5 Pro has a lot of improvements compared to Redmi Note 4(2017 Best Selling Smartphone) or the Redmi Note 5. Camera lovers won't be disappointed with Redmi Note 5's performance.

This budget beast gets a big boost in the processor department and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 which has an Antutu Score of around 1,10,000. Redmi Note 4 comes with Snapdragon 625 which scores around 65000 on Antutu benchmark. So by this comparison, the Note 5 Pro has 70-80% more processing power. 

It comes in two variants, one with 4GB RAM and other with 6GB of RAM clubbed with 64 GB of internal memory in both the variants, assuring of a power-packed performance with Smooth Multitasking and no lag or delay even with the higher end games. Xiaomi has used DDR4 RAM here which is a great thing because we don't really see DDR4 in budget phones. Only the flagship phones are using DDR4 as of now.

The back of Redmi Note 5 Pro has a curved back making it easier to hold and grip. There is a 2.5D gorilla glass on the display. With a strong build quality, great looks, this Note 5 Pro certainly feels nice in hand. Xiaomi has added a translucent silicon case in the box which fits the phone very nicely. Thumbs up to Xiaomi for adding a free case.

Redmi Note 5 Pro, comes with a fingerprint sensor that is quick in unlocking your phone. Xiaomi has added the face unlock feature in the first update. In our initial tests, the face unlock has been working great. It is quick and unlocks the phone in less than a second. Plus, it works even when your phone is about at waist height and you are looking at it. So, you can just take your phone out of pocket and look at it, it will unlock. You don't need to lift the phone to face height to unlock it. We liked the speed and accuracy of the Xiaomi's face lock. Also, it didn't work when eyes were closed so you don't have to worry about someone unlocking your phone when you are sleeping.

The Redmi Note 5 is not water resistant or dust proof as it does not have any IP rating.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro is running on latest MIUI 9 which is based on Android Nougat 7.1.2,  which will surely be upgraded to Android Oreo in the near future. Those who love stock android won't like the MIUI interface so just go for Nova Launcher.

Still not able to hold what all this smartphone offer. Hold Tight. Apart from raking in the best features in all the departments, This Redmi Note 5 Pro comes with a big 4000mAH which can easily last of 1.5 - 2 days in case of normal usage, given it comes with a power efficient processor. In first few days of use, we got 7 to 8 hours of screen on time which is excellent for a large 6 inch display phone with a powerful processor.

Our charging tests are still in progress and we will add results here soon. 

With ranking high in this department as well, Redmi Note 5 Pro, does not leave any point that can be strictly negative towards it.

Overall, Redmi Note 5 Pro is a great value for money smartphone which looks decent and performs well. If your budget is around 15k then go for it.

Note: This was a brief review. If you want to take a look at benchmarks, battery test, camera samples then take a look at >> In-depth Review of Redmi Note 5 Pro

6 inch Bezel-less Display, Decent Design, Great Camera Performance, 2 Day Battery Backup makes it one of the best 4GB RAM phones under 15000.

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 lower variant is priced at Rs.8999 and the higher variant is priced at Rs. 10999. 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.

20MP Front Camera, Good Build Quality, Dual Tone Front Flash, 18:9 Ratio Display makes it one of the best 4GB RAM phones under 15000.

Brief Review:

Honor 9 Lite is the latest smartphone in India from Huawei/Honor in the budget segment of around Rs. 10000-15000. Before this, we have seen 3 launches from Honor in last 4 months. The first one was Honor 9i, the second was Honor 7X and third was Honor View 10. We liked all those devices, now let's take a look at Honor 9 Lite.

Honor 9 Lite looks stunning. The phone is covered with glass on the front and back and has a very glossy finish. Yes, it is prone to fingerprints but when it is clean, it looks gorgeous. I don't remember the last time we saw a budget device that was this beautiful. If you are wondering which color is the best then my first choice would be Blue, then grey and then black. This is just a personal preference. Go with the color you like most.

The build of the phone is solid and it feels good in the hand. We have a 5.65-inch full view display with Full HD+ resolution. The display is large but the phone isn't because of the smaller bezels. You won't face any issues with one hand usage. The phone is slippery because of glass design so that might be a problem. 

The aspect ratio of the display is 18:9 which is something we are seeing in all latest smartphones. The display is covered with 2.5D glass. Once again, we don't know whether there is tempered gorilla glass or not. Looking at Honor's past record, we think it is not a gorilla glass so getting a tempered glass for your Honor 9 Lite would be a good idea.

The Honor 9 Lite comes powered by 2.36 GHz Octa-Core Kirin 659 processor, which is a powerful processor capable of handling all the normal multitasking swiftly. We have seen the same chipset on the recently launched Honor 7X and Honor 9i. The chipset performs well and is efficient as well so we don't have any complaints.On Antutu benchmarks you will see a score of around 62000.

The multitasking Honor 9 Lite assisted by 3 or 4GB of RAM depending on which variant you buy. It comes with 32/64 GB of internal memory. Plus there is a MicroSD card slot which can be used to increase the storage by up to 256GB. The slot is hybrid so you can either use 2 sims cards or 1 sim card and a MicroSD card. We hate the concept of the hybrid slot because it limits the functionality of the device.

The USP of the device is the camera setup. Honor 9 Lite has a dual rear camera and dual front camera, The rear camera is a 13MP + 2MP dual camera while the front camera is a 13MP + 2MP dual camera. the dual camera setup allows additional effects to be added to the photos clicked. Both camera setups have an RGB camera sensor and a monochrome camera sensor. Details are captured from both cameras to make images sharper. Plus, they help to give a bokeh/depth effect to your pictures also known as portrait mode. We have seen the same camera setup before on Honor 7X and 9i and the performance are same. The pictures are nice in outdoor lighting. The bokeh effect also looks good in pictures from both front and rear cameras. The camera performance under low light conditions is average which is expected from a smartphone in this price range. Overall, we think the camera performance is decent and you won't be disappointed.

Honor 9 Lite also supports the feature as seen in other Honor phones where the image background can be blurred even after clicking the image. This feature is really good as you can blur the background to your liking after taking the picture. 

For security, the back of the phone supports an active fingerprint sensor on the back of the device. The fingerprint sensor is fast and responsive and you are not going to face any issues with it.

The Honor 9 Lite runs EMUI 8 which is a skin based on Android 8 Oreo. EMUI has some useful customizations like drawing an S for a long screenshot to capture an entire web page, tap twice with one finger for a screenshot, and tap twice with two fingers for screen recording. These small features can be very useful. There is some bloatware on the device but those apps can be uninstalled.

The handset supports 3000mAH battery which should be sufficient for more than a day for normal usage. It comes with a 5V 2Amp charger and there is some kind of fast charging so you can expect your device to charge from 0 to 100% in around 2 hours.

Honor 9 Lite is not waterproof or dustproof so there is no IP rating for this device. Keeping it away from water and dust would be a good idea.

Honor 9 Lite comes in 2 variants: 3GB-32GB and 4GB-64GB priced at 10999 and 14999 respectively. It will be available on Flipkart from 21st Jan.

Overall, Honor 9 Lite looks like a great looking budget device with decent overall performance and nice dual cameras on both sides. If you like to take selfies then you should consider this device. Even if you do not click selfies, the premium build, beautiful display, lag-free performance makes it a great option in this price range.

This was a brief overview of Honor 9 Lite. We have a done a detailed review as well. Check out the detailed review of Honor 9 Lite.

Other options in this range include Mi A1 and Moto G5S Plus. We think Honor 9 Lite is a better option because of better processor, better and larger display and dual front camera which is not there in other devices.

Beautiful Glass Design, Gorgeous Display, Dual Back Camera, Dual Front Camera makes it one of the best 4GB RAM phones under 15000.

  • Back Camera: 16MP+2MP Dual Camera

Brief Review:

Honor 7X is the successor to the Honor 6X which was first dual camera phone in mid range. Honor 6X sales were good because of the fact that it was one of the first dual camera phones in this range plus the overall performance of the device was good as well. Huawei would like to replicate the success with Honor 7X.

Honor 7X is actually a lot like Honor 9i which was launched recently in India. The internals are same with the same chipset, same RAM. The camera setup at the back is same. The display is also same. Only things that have changed from 9i to 7X is that front camera on 7X is a single 8MP sensor while it was a dual camera setup on 9i and the camera placement on the back has changed. In Honor 9i the dual camera setup is placed vertically in the middle and on Honor 7X the dual camera setup is placed horizontally on the top corner of the device. Because a lot of things are similar, the review is also similar. You can take a look at Honor 9i review here.

Honor 7X has a metal unibody design with a 2.5D glass covering the display on the front which is 5.93-inch display with Full HD Plus resolution. The aspect ratio of the display is 18:9 which we are seeing a lot in latest phones and trend is expected to continue for next few years. In a couple of years, all phones might come with these full view 18:9 displays. 

The hardware inside the Honor 7X is decent as well. We have a Kirin 659 SOC which is an octa-core chipset with 2 clusters of 4 A53 cores. One cluster is power efficient and runs at a lower frequency. The other cluster runs at higher frequencies and is able to handle heavy workloads like heavy games and apps. For storage we have 3 variants: 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. There is a hybrid sim slot as well which can be used to increase the storage by up to 256GB. We do not like the concept of hybrid sim slot but companies are still going for. We hope it changes in future.

In the camera department, we have a dual camera setup on the back. There is a 16MP+2MP dual camera setup. The higher resolution sensor is a color sensor and lower resolution is a black and white sensor. Details from both sensors are combined to improve image quality. It also helps in giving a depth/bokeh effect to your pictures which are also known as portrait shots. In the camera app, you can actually change the object that you want in focus which is quite useful sometimes. The camera performance is good for a device in this range. The Mi A1 back camera is slightly better than this but it does not have a large 5.9 bezel-less display. On the front, there is a single 8MP camera which is capable of taking some nice detailed shots in daylight. The camera performance is decent. The front camera on Honor 9i is better because it has a dual camera setup on the front as well. So selfie lovers should go for Honor 9i.

The Honor 7X runs on EMUI 5.1 which is based on Android 7.0. EMUI has some useful customization with very little bloatware. Overall performance is good. Everyday usage is smooth with no lag.

The battery inside the Honor 7X is 3340 mAH battery which will last for a day on single charge. The charger in the box is a 10W charger with 2A 5V. Charging time of Honor 7X is around 2 hours.

The prices mentioned above on this page are expected prices as the device has not been launched in India. Pricing of Honor 7X in China is 1399, 1699 and 1999 for 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB variant respectively. Honor has priced the Honor 7X at 12999 for 32GB variant and 15999 for the 64GB variant. We think 15999 is little overpriced. There shouldn't have been a difference of 3000 just for 32GB extra storage. Plus, we are disappointed that Honor didn't launch the 128GB variant.

Overall we think pricing is decent and Huawei will be able to compete with Xiaomi which is expected to launch Redmi Note 5 in December with a similar configuration of dual cameras and bezel-less display. 

Honor 7X is an Amazon exclusive device and is available in flash sales only.

Honor 9i is another great option if you take a lot of selfies as it has a dual front camera setup. Buy Honor 9i from Flipkart.

Premium Build, Full View Display, Dual Back Camera, Lag Free Performance makes it one of the best 4GB RAM phones under 15000.

Brief Review:

10.or G or as spelled Tenor G is the latest android phone launched with Android Nougat 7.1.2 upgradable to Android Oreo and is exclusively available on Amazon India.

Tenor (10.or) G comes powered with Snapdragon 626, around 10% boost over the Snapdragon 625 seen in the Redmi Note 4, a direct competitor. Tenor G comes with a 5.5-inch 2.5D curved screen and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. There is the metal body at back and plastic on top and bottom, with curved sides which allows easy gripping of the phone. The build quality is good but the looks are somewhat between decent to good.
 
However, the phone is super solid in the specifications and performance. Tenor (10.or) G comes with a Dual 13MP+13MP rear camera with Dual tone LED flash, one is a monochrome sensor that captures details, and the other is an RGB sensor that captures the color information. The front camera is a 16MP 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. Tenor (10.or) G gives an option to use Bokeh effect to blur the background and an enhanced focus in a night shot.
 
10.or G comes with a massive 4000mAh battery and does not feel heavy considering the battery size. The battery for this in a normal day to day usage can easily last for 1.5 days. The fingerprint sensor at the back of the phone has a good response time. Tenor G comes with a hybrid sim slot allowing either Dual sim usage or single sim with external MicroSD card with memory expandable up to 128GB. The bottom of the phone consists of Dual Dirac stereo speakers and the 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 phone seems to be one of the best in this price range. 
 
Tenor G comes in two variants, 3GB + 32GB at Rs 10999 and 4GB + 64GB  at 12999. If you are looking to use it as a Dual sim phone, we would suggest buying the 64GB variant.
 

Redmi Note 4 vs Tenor G (10.or G)

Tenor G comes as a direct competitor to Redmi Note 4 launched in January this year. Redmi having sold more than 7 million Note 4 handset is steering forward with confidence. It looks like Tenor G looks to replicate the success achieved by Redmi Note 4, with slight improvements in some of the departments. We bring you a quick comparison between the two handsets.
 
  1. Tenor (10.or) G comes with Qualcomm Octa Core Snapdragon 626 which is 10% upgrade over Qualcomm 625 used in Redmi Note 4. 
  2. Tenor G also comes with a Dual (13MP+13MP) rear Camera while Redmi Note 4 holds a single 13MP camera.
  3. Tenor G is also a good upgrade on the front camera with a 16MP sensor while only a 5MP sensor is available in Redmi Note 4. Tenor G also comes with some inbuilt filters and beautification modes and an enhanced focus for low lighting clicks. 
  4. Redmi Note 4 has a 4100mAh battery while Tenor G comes with 4000mAH battery, expected to give equivalent battery backup.
  5. Both Note 4 and Tenor G come with a hybrid sim slot and in two similar variants of 3GB+32GB and 4GB+64GB. The fingerprint response on both the phones is also equivalent.
  6. In terms of looks, Redmi Note 4 to us looks slightly better.
Tenor (10.or) had also recently launched 10.or E which is also exclusively available from Amazon.

Dual Rear Camera, Massive Battery, Decent Processor, Latest Stock Android makes it one of the best 4GB RAM phones under 15000.

Brief Review:

Moto G5S Plus is the updated version of Moto G5 Plus which was launched a few months ago. Things that have changed are the display size, camera, and storage.

G5 Plus had a 5.2-inch display and G5S Plus has a 5.5-inch display panel. Resolution is same at 1080p Full HD. The display is sharp and vivid and viewing angles are good. There was a 12MP camera on the back before but now we have 13MP + 13MP dual camera setup which helps to give bokeh effect to the pictures. Plus, you can change the background of an object in the picture using inbuilt features. Motorola has done a great job at integrating these features directly into the camera app of Moto G5S Plus. 

On the front, we have an 8MP camera with flash. Front flash is a great addition for selfie lovers and should help in improving quality in low light conditions. Overall both camera perform really well and it is safe to say that Moto G5S Plus offers best camera experience in this segment. On the storage side, we have 64GB internal storage now which was 32GB before in the G5 Plus. 

The processor is same Snapdragon 625 with 4GB of RAM. The hardware is good and G5S Plus is able to handle heavy games easily so it is a good mid range option for gamers as well.

The build quality has improved. Previously the sides of Moto G5 Plus were plastic but now it is all metal. The phone feels very solid in hand and has a premium look. The battery has been kept the same at 3000mAh. You should get a day of backup with a single charge. Moto G5S Plus comes with a fast charger so battery backup should not be a problem.

With these improvements, Moto G5S Plus has become a very solid competitor in the mid range segment. G5 Plus was launched at Rs 16,999 but the improved G5S Plus has been priced at Rs 15,999 at launch which is excellent pricing.

Mi A1 is another good option in this range which can take even better pictures. See our blog post: Comparison of Moto G5S Plus and Mi A1 Plus

Premium Metallic Build, Excellent Dual Camera, Stock Android, Fast Charging makes it one of the best 4GB RAM phones under 15000.

K8 Note 64GB

Features

  • 4 GB RAM | 64 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 128 GB
  • 5.5 inch Full HD Display 1080p
  • Back Camera: 13MP + 5MP Dual Camera
  • Front Camera: 13MP
  • 4000mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Black, Gold Colors

Best Price ₹10999



Brief Review:

Lenovo K8 Note is the successor to K6 Note which was sold offline only. Lenovo has upgraded the processor and the camera of the device. The phone is made of metal and has a good build quality. The edges are curved which make it easy to hold. 

The display on the Lenovo K8 Note is Full HD 1080p panel with good color reproduction and viewing angles. It is covered with 2.5D glass on the front which gives it a nice look.

The USP of the Lenovo K8 Note is the dual camera on the back. There are 13MP and 5MP sensors on the back and information from both camera sensors help to give a bokeh or depth effect to the images. The camera performs well under daylight conditions but under low light the camera performance is average. The camera on the front is 13MP which again performs well in daylight but no so under low light conditions.

Inside the Lenovo K8 Note, we have an Helio X23 processor which is a 10 core chipset. The processor is more powerful than Snapdragon 625 and 626 but it is not efficient so battery backup will be average at best. Another issue with the processor is that it tends to heat up while playing heavy games. 

The Lenovo K8 Note scores around 95000 on Antutu benchmarks thanks to the powerful Helio X23 Chipset. This is around 1.5x of the Antutu score of Snapdragon 625 which is around 65000. 

On the storage side, we have 2 variants of Lenovo K8 Note. The first variant comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage and the second variant comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The price difference is just Rs 1000 so we recommend the 64GB 4GB variant.

The Lenovo K8 Note also has a dedicated MicroSD slot which can be used to increase the storage by 128GB. Lenovo has done a good job by avoiding the hybrid sim slot which limits the functionality of the device.

Lenovo K8 Note also has Dolby Atmos support. You can change the settings in Dolby app to change the bass and treble. It works pretty well so if you like to listen to music on your phone, you should definitely tweak the settings according to your preferences.

Overall the Lenovo K8 Note is a balanced device with a couple of negatives like average camera performance under low light and heating issues. At this price point, we think it offers good value for money.

Good Build Quality, Dual Camera Setup, Vibrant Display, Stock Android makes it one of the best 4GB RAM phones under 15000.

Features

  • 4 GB RAM | 32 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 256 GB
  • 5.7 inch Full HD Display 1080p
  • Back Camera: 13MP
  • Front Camera: 13MP
  • 3300mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Black, Gold Colors

Best Price ₹12900



Brief Review:

Samsung is not known for selling value for money phones but the story of Samsung On Max is little different. The device has a metal build which feels strong and looks good. The display on the front is a large 5.7 inch Full HD display with good colours and viewing angles. The display is covered with a 2.5D glass which gives it a premium look.

Above the display, there is a 13MP front camera with flash. Selfie lovers will love this combination of a high-resolution camera with a flash for low light conditions. Below the display, we have a fingerprint sensor which is quick and accurate. On the back, we have a 13MP camera with larger pixels for low light conditions. The performance of both front and back camera is decent and we have no complaints. 

Inside the phone, we have MediaTek P25 chipset with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Samsung has gone with MediaTek instead of or Snapdragon or its own Exynos to keep the cost low. The P25 is a decent chipset with performance similar to Snapdragon 625 but it is not that power efficient. With a large display and a MediaTek chipset, the 3300mAh battery will last a day with moderate usage. A battery size of 4000mAh would have been a better choice for this device.

Overall the Samsung On Max is a well-balanced device and is a good option for those who love Samsung brand. If you are fine with other brands then Motorola G5 Plus is a good option which provides equally good performance and camera. If the camera is not your top priority and you want to save some money then take a look at devices like Redmi Note 4 and Lenovo P2.

Premium Metallic Build, Vibrant Display, Smooth Multitasking, Good Camera makes it one of the best 4GB RAM phones under 15000.
