OnePlus 6

best phonesns under rs 40,000 - oneplus 6
6GB/64GB memory

8GB/128GB memory

What’s good:
The OnePlus keeps getting better every year albeit with a price bump. This yea’s phone offers the Snapdragon 845 which makes it among the cheapest phones to offer it in the market. The controversial notch also gets added. At 6.3 inches, it’s not exactly small though even for a 18:9 display phone. As usual, OnePlus has loaded it with enough RAM and internal memory along with Android 9.0 and as many cameras as you’d want in your phone. The camera has been given rave reviews too.

 

What could have been better:
Just wait for the OnePlus 6T.

Not to confuse you with the camera specs listed above, Ww’ve listed the specs as (megapixels), (aperture), (OIS-if present), (sensor size). Generally speaking, bigger the aperture and sensor size, better is the camera. Which means smaller number in the denominator, the bigger the aperture or sensor size is. For example, f/1.9 is a bigger aperture and than f/2.0. Also 1/2.2″ is a bigger sensor than, say, 1/2.6″. A bigger aperture camera performs much better in low light situations and produces sharper images. It also produces a better brokeh. Also, OIS refers to optical image stabilization, which helps in reducing blur.
