*Top 3 picks

 

1. Xiaomi POCO F1

Xiaomi POCO F1
6GB RAM, 64GB

6GB RAM, 128GB

What’s good:
Here is a solid OnePlus challenger that costs way less than it. Snapdragon 845 under Rs 20,000 is good enough to obliterate the competition. Think of a flagship feature and this phone has it. From dual cameras to 8GB RAM, to mammoth storage and a decent battery. We also have reports that it is getting the Android 9.0 update in India.

 

What could have been better:
The name’s a bit silly, no? Also, no NFC or wireless charging.

2. Realme 3 Pro

Realme 3 Pro
4GB RAM/ 64GB storage

6GB RAM/ 128GB storage

What’s good:
Realme didn’t give much time to Xiaomi to sit on its laurels after the success of Note 7 Pro. The Realme 3 Pro is better than the Note 7 Pro on most of the fronts. It’s got a better processor (among the best in this budget), a dedicated expansion slot, a mammoth battery, Android 9.0 out of the box. Everything you could ask for from a phone.

 

What could have been better:
Nothing.

3. Redmi Note 7 Pro

Redmi Note 7 Pro
4GB RAM/ 64GB storage

6GB RAM/ 128GB storage

What’s good:
Xiaomi was under the heat from competitors who had released much more compelling products than the Redmi Note series in recent past. However, all that goes for a toss with the new Note 7 Pro. The only difference between this and the Note 7 is the faster processor on the Pro. Other than that, we love the camera, Android 9.0, large battery, and what looks like an impressive camera on paper at least.

 

What could have been better:
Only the hybrid SIM slot.

4. Oppo RealMe 2 Pro

Realme 2 Pro
4GB RAM/ 64GB storage

6GB RAM/ 64GB storage

8GB RAM/ 128GB storage

What’s good:
Notches are ugly, but smaller ones do help. Luckily the newest RealMe comes with a teardrop notch to give you enough screen area on the top. Oppo has also packed this phone with as much specs as it possibly could and the result is a phone that is miles ahead of anything in this budget. Great processor, ample storage, 8GB RAM, do we even need flagships anymore?

5. Xiaomi Mi A2

mi a2
4GB RAM, 64GB

6GB RAM, 128GB

What’s good:
The Mi A1 didn’t stay long enough in the market to make a lasting impression, but its successor is here to change that. Mi A2 comes with promising cameras and a decent processor. And hey, it got updated to Android 9.0 recently. There’s also a 6GB RAM variant with more internal storage.

 

What could have been better:
There’s no expandable memory here.
