Realme C2

Realme C2

2GB RAM/16GB

A number of things have changed since the Realme C1 including Android 9.0 on board, a better processor, and improved cameras. The P22 is certainly ahead of the 450 too.

Xiaomi Redmi 7A

Redmi 7A

What’s good:
The Redmi 7A comes to the market to replace the 6A and offers a larger battery and a better processor. There’s also Android 9.0 out of the box.

 

What could have been better:
No 3GB RAM variant :(. And there’s no fingerprint scanner either.

Asus ZenFone Lite L1

Asus ZenFone Lite L1

What’s good:
While the Max M1 competes with the Redmi 6, this one takes on the Redmi 6A. For Rs 5,000, you get 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, a decent 3,000mAh battery, and 13MP and 5MP snappers. Snapdragon 430 under 6k is a really good option too.

 

What could have been better:
Sadly, like the Redmi 6A, there’s no fingerprint scanner.

Nokia 3.1

Nokia 3.1

What’s good:
The Nokia 3.1 offers decent specs. Nothing too great really but nothing that’s very shabby either.

 

What could have been better:
The A22 is a better processor and this phone doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner.

Honor 7S

Honor 7S

What’s good:
Well, the Honor 7S comes with Android 8.1 out of the box, so that’s great. It seems like a jack of all trades to us, yet masters none. The processor is better than the 6737 everyone else seems to carry but slightly below the Snapdragon 425.

 

What could have been better:
Nothing for the asking price.

Gionee F205 Pro

What’s good:
Gionee is back in the game and the F205 Pro comes with features like Android 8.1, a decent processor, and a fingerprint. The processor is better than the 6737 everyone else seems to carry, but slightly below the Snapdragon 425.

Coolpad Cool 3

Coolpad Cool 3

What’s good:
You get a phone with a notch under 6k, so that’s there. You also get a fingerprint scanner on the back. Oh, and Android 9.0.

 

What could have been better:
We have no idea how good or bad that processor is.
