Brief Review:

The Redmi Note lineup of phones has always been a market dominator in the budget segment. This year with the release of their Note 7 and Note 7 pro we first thought that Xiaomi has basically dominated the budget segment.

It was only when there were rumors of the Note 7S being released especially with the speculated specs, the tech world and Note fanboys thought that Redmi is making a huge mistake. As per what the leaks suggested this looked like a parts spin of between the Note 7 and the Note 7 pro.

When the Note 7S did release it did turn out to be a parts spin-off, until the point the price was dropped. To keep this short review nice and crisp till the end we will discuss the verdict of the phone for the conclusion. With that said this is probably the best strategy that Redmi has ever played. Why do we think so? Read on to find out in this review of Redmi Note 7S.

Now before we even get to the specs just remember this that this phone is truly a part spin-off between Note 7 and the 7 pro. With that said let’s jump right into the review.

The Note 7S comes with glass sandwich design where we see gorilla glass 5 to both the front and the back and the phone just screams premium. That said the frame that holds the back and front panel is a plastic one and gives the overall build and design a pretty good feel. Not only this but the back also comes with a beautiful gradient back finish, that like the 7 and 7 pro which overall gives the 7S too a beautiful look.

Coming to the buttons. To the right, we have tactile power and volume buttons, classic Redmi. To the top of the phone, we find the secondary microphone, 3.5mm headphone jack, and an IR blaster. To the left, we see the Hybrid SIM card slot which can be used with 2 SIMs or a SIM and a micro SD card expandable up to 256 GB. Finally, to the bottom, we get the primary microphone, Type C port, thank you Redmi and the speaker grill. We have the Dual camera setup at the back of the phone with a well-placed classic fingerprint sensor in the middle.

All in all, the 7S is on par with the 7 and 7 pro if not better, the icing on the cake the entire phone is coated with Xiaomi’s patented P2i coating. What is that? This basically makes the phone humidity and spill proof and that in our book is great. 

The display has been one of the strongest suits of Redmi especially for the Note series since forever. This thankfully continues for the Note 7S too. To begin with we have gorilla glass 5 protecting the front of the display. Getting into the specs of the display itself we have a 6.3-inch FHD+ Dot notch LCD. This display runs at 2340 x1080p and has a very welcoming 450 nits of brightness with a 409ppi screen density.

Picture quality looks really nice and punchy with accurate colors. It might not be as vivid and punchy as an AMOLED panel. Yes, LCD’s stand no chance when compared to AMOLED ones. But for what it is the display is simply put the best in this price point. We are sure that you will definitely like it.

When it comes to battery life, Redmi has always been on point. The same has been continued with the 7S too. The 7S gets a very modest and very frequently appearing 4000mAh. This is one of the best features that the Note series has been providing ever since Note 3. The 4000mAh battery is easy 1-day battery life. If you’re a light user you will easily get into the second day.

The 7S comes with a 10W standard charger  but supports Quick Charge 4.0 charging technology to quickly charge the phone. Note that, the fast charger is not bundled in the box. All in all, the 7S is basically a champ when it comes to battery life.

Now coming to the camera review. The department that makes all the difference. Let us get the specs out of the way. The 7S gets the same 48MP F1.8 primary sensor and 5MP F2.2 depth sensor as seen on the Note 7 Pro. The selfie shooter gets again the same 13MP F2.0 shooter. Now what’s funny is this that the 7S runs on Snapdragon 660, more on this in a while. Natively the 660 does not support both, a 48MP and 5MP sensors.

The picture snapped is a compressed 12MP one and gives plenty of details. The picture quality will be good and full of detail thanks to the 4 in 1 pixel binning technology. Now there are 2 48MP sensors on the market. One is from Sony and is aka Sony IMX 586 while the other one is from Samsung known as the GM1 sensor. The Note 7S hosts the GM1 Samsung sensor while the Note 7 Pro hosts the Sony IMX sensor. 

OnePlus 7 Pro also hosts the Sony IMX 586 48 MP sensor. Yes it is sad but it is true that the 48MP sensor is nothing else but a complete marketing scheme. Redmi has played it very, very well.

The selfie camera is also pretty darn good. 13MP with all the bell and whistles that are expected of a 13MP lens. The selfie camera supports standard features like 2D facial unlock and selfie portraits.  Pictures taken will be well detailed and the overall image quality is good.

The camera department is a mixed bag cause the 48MP shooter is a capable shooter. It could deliver true 48MP shots if a much powerful chipset were used. As of today, you will most definitely not be disappointed with this camera, however, it won’t wow you either.

So, as we mentioned in the camera department that how Redmi has very cleverly played things of with the use of the 48MP sensor. We also mentioned that the 7S is a parts spin-off. Well, in the processor side the 7S uses the same aforementioned Snapdragon 660 processor with AI capabilities. This is the full-fledged SD660 with the higher 2.2GHz clock speed used in the Note 7. The 660 is a very capable processor and day to day task will be a breeze to use.

Now, again we see Redmi’s very strong marketing strategy coming in to play with the use of a 3/32GB variant and the 4/64GB variant exactly same as Note 7. You will be able to play high end games like PUBG but at medium setting with zero frame loss and high settings with a few frame drops.

We always say this that a phone hardware is not the only thing that runs the phone as the software behind it also matters allot. Well, the good news is the Note 7S runs on MIUI 10 atop Android 9 Pie. MIUI 10 is the result of Xiaomi’s over the year evolution of their custom skin.  The UI is pretty heavy with a few neat tricks. However, what is worse is this that the UI is far, far from even being in the vicinity of stock Android.

Let us now take a peek in to the price before we could conclude. The 3GB/32 GB variant comes at rupees 10999 and the 4GB/64 GB variant comes at rupees 12999.

Comparing the Note 7S pricing with the Note 7 and Note 7 Pro. The Note 7 with the 3/32GB variant comes at Rs 9999 and the 4/64GB variant comes in at 11999. While the Note 7 Pro with the exact same specs as that of the 7S but with a Snapdragon 675 comes at Rs 13999 for the 4GB/64GB and Rs 16999 for the 6GB/128GB variant.

Yes, the 7S is placed right between the 2 Notes and Redmi is trying to capture each and every user in this price range of under 10000 to under 15000 by offering one bait or the other.

Now here is what we suggest. If you were to choose between the Note 7 and the Note 7S, we would say go for the top end variant of the Note 7. This will be a 1000 rupees less than the base variant of the Note 7S while giving you an extra GB of RAM and double the storage.

While if you really want the best graphics and processing power pay 2K more and buy the base variant of the Note 7 pro. With this, you get the Snapdragon 675 and Adreno 612 GPU which is miles ahead of the Adreno 512 which you get with the SD660 on both the note 7 and the note 7S.

Honestly speaking if your budget was tight, we wouldd say buy the top end variant of the Note 7. This will be a great proposition as the Note 7S is not really a huge value for money solely because of the 48MP sensor as it really doesn’t turn any table.

Brief Review:

Realme after splitting from Oppo was not very successful thanks to the likes of Xiaomi’s Note series and now the Redmi series. However, everything started changing with the release of the Realme 3 Pro. The 3 Pro provides best in class processor, battery life and fast charging capabilities for a price that rivaled the like of the Redmi Note 7 Pro.

Now, with the release of the Realme C2, Realme plans of taking the Redmi 6 head on and the Redmi 7 to an extent. Will Realme be able to knock the competition or has the huge success of the Realme 3 pro got into their heads. Today we look into the short review of the Realme C2 and like always read on to find out.

The C2 comes with what Realme like to call a diamond cut finish at the back. This design is achieved by using Nano-scale composite particles and Realme for sure like to brag about it. Other design aspects involve the power button on the right and nothing on top apart from the secondary microphone. The volume rockers with the sim and dedicated memory card slot expandable up to 256GB,  reside to the left. Finally, the primary microphone the headphone jack and the speaker grill sit at the bottom of the phone. The phone also comes with a splash proof coating although it is to be noted that Realme makes no promises of the phone being waterproof.

Considering the fact that Realme has added a Nano-water coating and has a great diamond cut design. There are two color options at the time of writing this review: Diamond Black and Diamond Blue. Overall, this is what can be expected of a phone that starts at a price tag of below 6K and Realme has done a pretty fine job in this department.

Now as the price tag of the device is pretty low let us not expect great display with the best of resolutions. However, Realme did not cheap out with the display department here. The C2 comes with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 6.1-inch with an HD+ resolution at 1560X720p dew-drop notch display. Thanks to the notch the phone is able to reach a screen to body ratio of 89.35%.  This is a great panel especially considering the price tag. Realme has even gone further in adding a gorilla glass protection which for a budget of under 6000. They don’t mention which generation of the glass is being used but yes, it’s good to have some sort of protection than having nothing at all.

All in all, the display used is a pretty good one for the price of the phone and Realme has simply done a great job just like the prior department too.

Now, this is one department where Realme has simply knocked the competition out of the waters. This is thanks to the inclusion of a whopping 4000mAh battery in the phone. Now, if the display used by the phone were FHD+ or if the Processor used was top of the line, more on this later. We would have said that it’s pretty decent battery capacity. However, the C2 comes with an HD+ display and a low-powered processor. This coupled the huge 4000mAh battery and the aggressive power management by ColorOS 6 makes for the great battery life of around 2 days.

The phone will easily last any light user for 2 whole days and when put to heavy usage will undoubtedly last a full one day. This in our book is simply amazing.

The camera is another department that Realme has done a pretty decent job. The rear cameras are a combination of a primary 13MP F2.2 shooter coupled with a 2MP F2.4 depth sensor. Now, considering the price the cameras play pretty fair in our opinion. It can shoot 1080p videos and has an option for portrait photos and 4X maximum zoom. The selfie camera is a 5MP shooter of F2.0 aperture and has support for 2D facial unlock, AI beautification and portrait shots too. The selfie shooter turns out to be slightly more capable than the rear ones thanks to the lower aperture.

Pictures from the rear camera will be good in daylight but will also most definitely turn out slightly soft. This is expected of a phone with such a low price tag, no complaints there. However, this in no sense means that the camera is useless or anything. It is just that if you are expecting great photography out of these lenses, we would suggest you all to look elsewhere.

This is probably the greatest selling point of this smartphone. The Realme C2 comes with a MediaTek helio P22 Processor. The P22 is an 8-core processor containing 8 A-53 cores clocked at 2.0GHz. This is a 12nm processor that provides huge power efficiency. For the price that the phone comes at makes the C2 the cheapest phone to come with the P22 a title that was owned by the Redmi 6 previously. The P22 scores a 78010 on AnTuTu Benchmark and is a pretty good score for the price that the phone comes in. The GPU, IMG PowerVR GE8320, on the other hand, is not as competitive as the CPU. However, it is good to run day to day task. Depending on the model that you choose the phone comes in 2 variants a 2/16 GB version and a 3/32 GB version. Like we said day to day task should not restrict the performance of the phone. However, it is to be noted that if you plan on gaming on the phone, we would suggest you look into other viable options in the higher budget segment.

As we know that the hardware of the phone as good as it might be, it is nothing if it is not backed by good software in the software front the C2 comes equipped with ColorOS 6.0 atop android 9 pie.  Yes, it’s true that the ColorOS is a huge departure from stock android. However, it is way snappier and sleeker than its inception. This is definitely a daily driver material and will not disappoint the users.

Before we wrap the review up let us take a dive on the pricing. The 2/16 GB variant comes in at rupees 5999 and the top end model comes in at 3/32 GB and a price tag of rupees 7999. At this price the phone that it competes directly with the Redmi 6 which also comes with almost exact same specs. Realme has priced the Realme C2 at an extremely completive price. If your budget is extremely tight then we suggest you go for the C2. There is no IP rating so keep the phone away from water and dust.

But if you do end up buying this phone, we are pretty sure you wouldn’t be disappointed with it. Until next time keep reading my friends.

Brief Review:

Realme was a sub-brand of the very famous Shenzhen-based Chinese brand OPPO until 2018 when it separated to become an independent company. Realme focusses on mainly budget segment phones priced between 7k to 15K price segment. With offerings from Xiaomi and Samsung at this price point will the Realme 3 be able to keep up with the competition? Or will it be just another phone brand trying to survive in the ocean of budget smartphones?

Read on to find out as we list what’s good, average and bad in this brief review of the Realme 3.

Now when you first unbox the case of the Realme 3 you are pleasantly greeted with the phone followed by a 10W fast charger, a micro USB cable, and a clear film TPU case. Its good to see that Realme is providing a case right out of the box until you purchase a new one. Well, when you hear the word micro USB you might be thinking that its outdated right? But the fact is that this is a sub 11K phone and we can’t really complain much in this price range. An exception comes from Redmi Note 7 which impressively offers fast charging for a sub 10k smartphone.

Coming to the design first, the Realme 3 has a plastic body but a new gradient finish design giving it a much expensive look than it actually is. The fingerprint scanner sits behind the phone, although mention needs to be made of its slightly higher placement than the usual. Other design features include the vertical dual camera and a single LED flash set up at the leftmost corner. The primary camera comes with this yellow paint job around the rim of the camera that Realme calls the ‘Real Ring’.

Coming to the front gate, we have a large 1520 X 720 pixels 6.22-inch HD+ teardrop notch display giving it an 88.3 percent screen to body ratio. However, the phone comes with a considerable chin at the bottom. The display is 720p instead of 1080p and it is a bummer considering again it's previous offering the Realme U1 have 1080p displays. The quality of the display is however good for a 720p one. Again, what disappointing is the chin on the Realme 3 is actually larger than the company’s previous offering which is the Realme U1. The display is protected by gorilla glass 3 and has a max brightness of 450nits which is decent for this price point, though other manufacturers have moved to Gorilla Glass 5 and 6.

Coming to the camera front the Realme 3 houses a 13MP f1.8 primary sensor and a 2MP depth sensor for portrait shots. It is to be noted that this is the same setup seen in the previous Realme U1 which is not absolutely great in the price range but doesn’t disappoint the users either. The selfie camera is a 13MP f2.0 sensor which also comes equipped with face unlock. This, however, is again a downgrade from the Realme U1's 25MP selfie shooter. The camera captures decent images with good contrast and also supports AI capabilities to improve the images. Overall considering the phone priced at under 9000, the phone offers decent features and quality.  One fact about the camera is the rear camera is that the video recording capability is locked down to only 1080p despite the processor Helio P70 has 4K recording capability.

Staying on the processor front as mentioned earlier the Helio P70 from MediaTek is the animal running the show on this phone. The P70 is based on the 12nm manufacturing process and is an extremely capable processor as its almost on par with the Snapdragon 660 which is actually a good thing considering the phones lower price point. Even while gaming the Mali-G72 holds up to itself and games like PUBG mobile will surely play just fine on medium settings. Realme 3 AnTuTu score comes out at 1,37,901 which again confirms a strong performance.

The Realme 3 unlike some of its competition offers the best of both the world when it comes to SIM and Memory card slot. It provides both of them 2 SIM card slot and a separate Memory card slot which is expandable to a whopping 256GB. Other features include headphone jack at the bottom. Yes, we see the headphone jack as a feature as phone prices 5 times its own are removing it. Flanked beside the headphone jack are not 1 bit 2 microphone the micro USB cable and the speaker grill.

When compared to other phones in this price range that usually come with a Snapdragon 636, the P70 just crushes the competition. However, when compared with the Snapdragon 660 it falls slightly behind. So, performance wise the Realme 3 surely delivers.

Finally coming to the battery backup. The battery on the Realme 3 is a massive 4230 mAh. This is a major upgrade compared to the companies last offering which is the Realme U1. Combined with the 12nm P70 and a lower resolution 720p display, the phone delivers around 1.5 days of backup.

For the software, the Realme 3 comes with the latest Color OS 6.0 based on Android 9 Pie which comes with app drawer and other useful features. There are some bloatware apps that come installed on this phone. Also, there is no IP rating so you have to protect your phone from water and dust unlike Note 7 which offers splash-proof protection. 

Now, we have been talking about the price point of the Realme 3 for a long time and here are the variants that are gonna be made available to the end users. The Rs  8999 variant will get you 3GB RAM and the 32GB of internal storage. While the Rs 10999 variant will get you 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.

So, to sum everything up. The Realme 3, doesn’t really improve from its predecessor but makes some noteworthy change on the battery and processor department. It is true that the display is not all that great and the camera is also slightly above average but the 4230 mAh battery and the Helio P70 makes up for the other compromises.

According to us the best value for money is the base variant at rupees 8999 because at this price a P70 and a 4230 mAh battery is actually a great deal. So if the camera and display is not the topmost priority and performance and battery life is all that you want to go for this phone. At this price point, the phone faces stiff competition from Redmi Note 7 and Asus Zenfone Max M2

Brief Review:

We don't remember the last time we recommended a Samsung phone under 10000 to our users. Samsung is trying to change that and the Samsung Galaxy M10 and M20 look like a step in that direction. The Samsung Galaxy M10 is priced at around 8000 to 9000 Rs. and comes with a fresh design and a large 6.22-inch Infinity V display. Infinity V is just a fancy name for the small notch displays that we are seeing these days.

The front camera is placed inside the notch and the earpiece is above the notch. The bezels all around are thin but the chin does take a good amount of space at the bottom. The display resolution is just HD 720p so it is not that sharp. Color accuracy isn't great either. The phone has a plastic unibody design with curved edges. The phone feels light because of the plastic but it doesn't feel cheap. We haven't done a bend test so we don't know how strong it is. Overall, this is the best-looking smartphone under 10000 from Samsung.

There is no fingerprint sensor on the phone so face lock or pin lock are the only ways to make your phone secure. The face unlock is slow and takes 2-3 seconds sometimes which is irritating. Most people will end up using pin lock because of that. The battery inside the phone is 3400 mAh and the charger that comes with the phone is 5V 1A charger. The battery is not big but because of low-resolution display and efficient processor, the battery backup is great. The phone will last for a day easily with medium to heavy usage. The charging is slow because of the 1A charger. It takes more than 3 hours to fully charge the device from 0 to 100%.

The Samsung M10 is powered by Exynos 7870 chipset which first came out in 2016. It not a powerful chipset and cannot compete with Snapdragon 625 or 450. There are 2 variants of M10: 2GB RAM and 16GB storage and 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. Because of the average processor, the multitasking isn't smooth and you will see some lag even on the 3GB RAM variant. Samsung M10 is not suitable for games like PUBG. For normal users who need a phone for social media apps and calling, Samsung M10 is a good device.

The Samsung M10 runs on Samsungs Experience UI which is a skin based on Android 8.1 Oreo. There is a good amount of bloatware. The UI is clean and easy to use though. The performance of M10 on benchmarks is average as well. It scores less than 50000 on Antutu benchmarks. 

On the camera side, we have a surprise from Samsung. The rear camera is a dual setup of 13MP (f/1.9) + 5MP (f/2.2 ultra-wide). While most companies just throw in a useless 2MP depth sensor as a secondary camera, Samsung has added an ultra wide angle lens which can be very useful. The primary sensor is also a good one and has an f/1.9 aperture which helps in low light shots. The camera on the front is a 5MP f/2.0 sensor. Both front and rear camera performance are decent for an under 10000 smartphone. The pictures taken in daylight look nice with good amount of details. The portrait mode pictures also look decent. 

The phone comes with a headphone jack and a triple slot sim tray so you can use 2 VOLTE sims with a MicroSD card. Dedicated sim slot is a really good option when you are buying phones with 16GB or 32GB of storage. 

Overall, Samsung M10 is a good value for money smartphone. Finally, Samsung has launched a smartphone which we can recommend to our users. The multitasking and gaming aren't great though. So if your usage is social media apps, taking pictures, watching videos and calling, Samsung M10 is a good phone under 10000. It is available in Blue and Black color. The blue color is our favorite color of M10 and go for the 3GB 32GB storage as the price difference is just Rs. 1000. If you need more power then Realme 2 and Redmi Y2 are good options at a similar price.

Brief Review:

Asus Zenfone Max M2 is an economical variant of the Max M2 Pro which comes with a less powerful processor and an HD+ Plus display compared to Full HD+ on the M2 Pro with other things remaining more or less the same.

This Max M2 comes with a notch type 6.26 HD+ display which has good brightness and sharpness level. The notch size on this phone is slightly bigger than compared to the M2 Pro. Also, there is no Gorilla glass on this phone which is expected in the price point so you need to be extra cautious that you do not drop it. On the build quality side, the phone looks solid and the back of the phone is metallic which feels sturdy in hand.

On the processor side, this Max M2 comes with a relatively new Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 which was seen on the only phone, Honor 8C. The Antutu benchmark scores come around 1,05,000 which is equivalent to the Samsung M20 phone and is a good score for sub 10k phone. The performance gets support from 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal memory. It supports a dedicated SD card slot to expand the memory up to 2 TB which is a very much needed feature as the phone is now increasingly used for clicking/storing photos videos and other data. There is also a 3 GB 32 GB variant available for a price on under 10k.

In our camera review, we found this phone clicks good pictures which given the price point are best. In terms of specifications, the sensors are similar to the Pro version. On the rear camera, there is a 13MP primary sensor and a 2 MP dedicated depth sensor and an 8 MP sensor for front camera selfies. The photos capture a lot of details with very apt quality, sharpness and color reproduction. However, the low light camera clicks and video struggled with noise and in capturing all the details. The camera app also takes a bit of time while focussing on the objects.

The portrait shots also produce attractive images with proper edge detection/bokeh effect most of the time unless there is a complex object in the background. The video recording is available in 4K (Ultra HD) resolution but stabilization is not available in 4K. You can enable stabilization for video recording under the 1080p resolution.

Coming to the gaming performance, the new Snapdragon 632 fares well is most of the scenario. The low to medium end games work perfectly fine without any issues however the high-end games do suffer some lag because of the processor performance, especially in games like PUBG which require you to focus on enemies takes some time delay compared to phones with the high-end processor.  Overall, the gaming performance is good in day to day life with very minor heating observed during our review. The full-screen games mask the notch completely with no option to enable it for now. Asus might change this with a software update in the future.

This Max M2 like the Max M2 Pro and Max M1 Pro comes with stock android with minimum bloatware apps like Facebook, Instagram etc which you might anyways need. The phone has been launched with Android Oreo and is supposed to get the Android Pie update. The phone supports dual VoLTE so if your network provider has VoLTE in your area, then you can use it on both the sim.  There are fingerprint and face unlocking mechanism available and both are fast and accurate and much improved from the previous Asus phones. There is no IP rating on this phone so keep it safe from water and dust and they can damage the phone.

For the battery backup, Asus has provided a 4000 mAh battery which gives a backup of around 1 complete day with heavy usage and around 1.5 days for medium to low usage. There is a 10W charger bundled in the box which takes around 120 minutes for complete charging and the phone does not support fast charging. Despite a big battery, the phone only weighs 160gm and feels light in hand. In terms of accessories, there is a TPU case bundled in the box but no earphones.

If you are looking for a complete phone and have a budget of around 10000, then you can look to choose this phone as it offers a solid quality, decent processor and a good battery backup. You can also read about the Samsung M10 if you do not need a powerful processor but a phone with good looks. Honor 8C also offer similar specification and comes in a similar price range.

6. Realme U1 32GB

Realme U1 32GB is one of the best bezel-less display phones under 10000

Features

  • 3 GB RAM | 32 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 256 GB
  • 6.3 inch Full HD+ Display 1080p
  • Back Camera: 13MP+2MP Dual
  • Front Camera: 25MP
  • 3500mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Black, Blue Colors

Best Price ₹9999



Brief Review:

Realme U1 is a selfie-centric smartphone and is priced in the 10000 to 15000 price segment. The phone is made of polycarbonate and feels light. The back looks like glass but it is not. It does have a reflective design which looks really nice. Blue is our favorite color here. The phone feels nice in hand. The bezels are small so even with 6.3-inch display size, the phone is not too big. It comes with a clear silicon case in the box which is useful if you tend to drop the phone.

The display on the front is a 6.3 inch LCD panel with a screen to body ratio of over 90%. The bezels are really thin and the notch is waterdrop notch which only takes a fraction of space compared to usual rectangular notches that we have seen till now. The resolution of the display is Full HD Plus. It is a good panel with accurate colors and good viewing angles. Visibility under direct sunlight isn't great though. 

For audio, there is a speaker on the bottom and it sounds nice and is loud as well. It is impressive. The headphone jack is also at the bottom with the MicroUSB charging port. The sound via the headphone jack is average and nothing special. The sim tray has 3 slots so you can put 2 sim cards and 1 MicroSD card at the same time. Realme U1 comes in 2 variants: 3GB 32GB and 4GB 64GB, if you are going with the base variant, you can slide in a MicroSD card anytime to increase the storage. 

The Realme U1 comes with a fingerprint sensor on the back and there is face unlock available as well. Both of these methods are quick to unlock the phone, the fingerprint sensor is more secure though. 

Realme U1 is powered by the MediaTek P70 chipset which is very similar to the P60 and has a bit higher clock speeds. The performance boost isn't great though. P60 was a good performer and so is P70, it is powerful enough to handle most games and apps without any lags. On benchmarks, it beats chips like Snapdragon 660 and scores around 150000 on Antutu benchmarks. You won't notice any throttling or overheating even while playing heavy games.

The battery on the U1 is 3500 mAh which is same as Realme 2 Pro battery. The battery backup is decent. With medium usage, it will last for a day. With low usage, you might get it running for around 1.5 days. The phone comes with 5V 2A charger and charges the phone fully in around 2 hours. In 30 minutes, you can get the phone from 0% to 30%.

The Realme U1 runs on ColorOS which is a heavily customized skin based on Android 8.1. There is plenty of useful feature and plenty of useless apps as well. If you have used Oppo, Vivo, Redmi phones before, you won't mind the interface. If you are coming from stock Android, there will be a learning curve. 

Now let's talk about the camera, which is the USP of this device. The rear camera is 13MP+2MP setup which is same as Realme 2. There's is nothing special here. The 13MP is a color sensor and 2MP is a depth sensor. It takes decent photos in outdoor good lighting conditions and is average indoor. The front camera is a 25MP sensor which takes excellent pictures. The front camera performs really well, the colors look good, dynamic range is decent and selfies look great overall. It does beautify your face a bit but that's what most customers want and are using so we can't complain. Video recording is limited to 1080p at 30FPS. The videos look good with plenty of details, good colors and audio recording is decent as well.

Overall, Realme U1 is a well-balanced device and is a great phone for selfie lovers. The design is nice, processor is powerful, rear camera is average but front camera is great and battery backup is decent as well. We think it offers good value for money and will be one of the bestsellers in the under 15000 segment in India.

7. Oppo Realme C1

Oppo Realme C1 is one of the best bezel-less display phones under 10000

Features

  • 2 GB RAM | 16 GB ROM | MicroSD upto 256 GB
  • 6.2 inch HP Plus 720p
  • Back Camera: 13MP + 2MP Dual Camera
  • Front Camera: 8MP
  • 4230mAh Battery
  • Dual Sim Device
  • Available in Diamond Red, Diamond Black Colors

Best Price ₹6999



Brief Review:

Oppo Realme C1 has been launched alongside the Realme 2 Pro just after a month of the launch of Realme 2. Realme C1 is basically a downgraded version of Realme 2 and comes at a very attractive price point of below 7k. C1 has a polycarbonate design and Realme has replaced the diamond cut design with a plain back with a glossy finish that looks good. Let us check the review and specifications of the latest sensation as a budget smartphone, the Realme C1.

Apart from a glossy finish, Realme has introduced a Notch display design in this price segment and this is the first by any company. Given the notch design, the phone has a big screen of 6.2 inches which has an HD Plus resolution. The phone looks decent and superb for an under 7k device. Redmi had recently launched the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A but none of them features a notch and Realme C1 has better design compared to them.

Coming to the processor, Realme has introduced a decently powerful Snapdragon 450 with 2GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage. On the AnTuTu benchmark, the Realme C1 scores around 57000 which is ahead when compared to the Redmi 6A and Honor 7S at the same price point. The AnTutu score is also maximum seen yet in under 7000 smartphones. Here you can easily do all the daily tasks smoothly, you can even play heavy games at low graphics settings but you would face frame drops, lag or hang problem at higher graphics setting or heavy multitasking. Because of the low internal storage, Realme C1 comes with 256 GB of dedicated SD card along with dual sim operation.

On the camera, we have a dual sensor at the back with a 13MP f/2.2 primary sensor and a 2MP depth sensor for portrait shots. The camera shots are decently fine and we could not expect anything better here. The picture had good colour contrast and sharpness but we see noise in the photos in the low lighting conditions. On the front, the camera has been little downgraded from the Realme 2 from 8 MP to 5 MP sensor now. Here the images are good and well balanced but the portrait shots somewhat face the heat with not so proper edge detection. But overall, considering it only costs 6999, we will like to restrict complaining or raising our expectations from the best value for money smartphone.

Realme had also never compromised with the battery backup, here Realme C1 had astonished everyone with a 4230 mAh battery rating that is insane and can last for around 2 days with no charge in between. Even with some heavy usage, you should get a backup of 1.5 days easily. It has a micro USB port available for charging and does not support fast charging and you get a 10W charger inside the box. Realme C1 is way ahead in battery backup when compared to the Redmi 6 and Redmi 6A which have a battery rating of 3000 mAh only.

Oppo Realme C1 runs on ColorOS 5.1 which is a custom skin based on Android Oreo 8.1 and comes with some third party apps preinstalled. The UI is same as seen on the Oppo branded smartphones and we must say it is not the best user interface and Realme has already received reviews from the community and might be working on an upgrade for the next smartphones.

Coming to the unlocking, Realme has done some cost-cutting on the fingerprint sensor for an extra hardware component as was on the Realme 1. The fingerprint sensor is missing but it supports the face unlocking feature which is super quick to unlock in a fraction of seconds. There is no IP rating on this phone and hence keep it protected from water and dust.

Overall, in this Oppo Realme C1, you get a stylish looking smartphone with a notch design, a good processor and camera for the price range, a massive battery but a support for only face unlocking. Certainly, as per our review of Oppo Realme C1, we find this smartphone as was the best phone under 7000.

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:

Honor has been very aggressive in the under 20000 smartphone range. They have launched Honor 9 Lite, Honor 7X, Honor 9i which have received great response from the users. Honor is now launching Honor 9N, which is a rebranded Honor 9i(2018) launched in China. It comes with a notch display and beautiful design and is a good smartphone under 15000. Let us look at the reviews, specifications and features of this beautiful phone. 

Honor 9N comes with a 5.84-inch notch display with a Full HD Plus resolution of 1080 x 2280 pixels. The display is a full view display having an aspect ratio of 19:9. In terms of design, it has a glass design and looks similar to the one seen Honor 9 Lite. The front has a notch and the back has a horizontal dual camera setup with a LED flash at the top and a fingerprint sensor. Honor has launched Honor 9N with a tagline of #ExtraOrdinaryBeauty and the design and looks truly upholds the statement. It is lightweight and easy to hold and operate with one hand.

On the performance side, Honor has once again used the in-house Kirin 659 processor which we have seen in all the midrange phones starting from Honor 9 Lite, Honor 9i (2017) and the Honor 7X. This smartphone has 3 GB of RAM with 32 GB of internal storage. We have seen the similar configuration in all the Honor phones in this price range and though Kirin 659 is not a powerhouse as Snapdragon 636 seen in Redmi Note 5 Pro but does handle multitasking with ease and one can easily go through all the daily tasks without any difficulty. But that Kirin 659 at the pricing of under 15000 does not raise the bar in the performance side when compared to the likes to Note 5 Pro, Asus Zenfone Max or the Mi A2 which has just launched. Honor 9N scores around 75000 on the Antutu Benchmark.

Coming to the camera, Honor 9N supports a dual rear camera setup with 13MP as the primary sensor and 2MP sensor as the secondary sensor with Dual tone LED flash and autofocus. The camera works fine with clear and crisp shots and good colour reproduction. The camera also supports face detection, portrait (bokeh) mode and HDR mode. The front camera is a 16MP shooter which is located inside the front notch and as expected clicks beautiful pictures and also supports portrait shots via software processing.

Honor 9N runs on EMUI 8.1 which is a custom skin based on the Android 8.1 Oreo and works smooth. They are some bloatware but Honor has well refined the EMUI over the years. There is a hybrid micro SD card slot to expand the memory up to 256 GB. Honor 9N supports both fingerprint and face unlocking mechanism and both of the methods work accurately and swiftly. Honor 9N does not carry any IP rating so keep it safe from the dust and water.  It has a battery rated at 3000 mAh which can keep the phone powered up for a day. You would need to charge it after a full day usage. 

Honor 9N though has been launched as the rebranded version Honor 9i (2018) but in actual it is a more beautiful version of all the Honor midrange phones. It has a stunning looking notch and is Honor's first phone under 15000 with a notch. The dazzling looks are very attractive and if you are looking to buy a phone under 15000 with a notch display, Honor 9N has to be your top choice. If you are not much concerned with the high-end gaming or heavy usage, this phone would work through easily.

The 3GB 32GB variant is priced at Rs. 11999 and the 4GB 64GB variant is priced at Rs. 13999. Honor has added a 4GB 128GB variant as well which will cost you 17999. We think the middle variant 4GB 64B provides the best value for money.
