Moto E6s

Moto E6s

What’s good:
Until now, the Moto E series has been nothing but a major disappointment year after year. However, you can’t discount the E6s because for the asking price it has been loaded with crazy specs. There’s a very capable processor, 4GB RAM, 64 gigs of storage, adequate battery, and even a fingerprint scanner. There’s nothing that this phone doesn’t have really.

 

What could have been better:
Nope, no complaints.

Lenovo K10 Note

Lenovo K10 Note
4GB RAM/ 64GB storage

6GB RAM/ 128GB storage

What’s good:
Lenovo has been largely missing from the action in India in recent times but seems to be finally tryin to make a comback. The K10 Note comes with a great processor, a mammoth battery, Android 9.0 out of the box, and up to 8GB RAM. Everything you could ask for from a phone.

Redmi Note 8 Pro

Redmi Note 8 Pro

What’s good:
After a couple of incremental iterations, the new Note 8 Pro is a significant improvement over its predecessor. The new MediaTek processor blows the Snapdragon 712 out of water in gaming and synthetic benchmarks. And if you thought that the 48MP camera on the Note 7 Pro wasn’t good, Xiaomi has upped the game with a 64MP sensor this time around. We also like the large battery, enough RAM, and ample storage.

Samsung Galaxy M30s

Best phone under 18000 - galaxy m30
6GB, 128GB

4GB, 64GB

What’s good:
Much needed update to the M30, the M30s brings in a better processor along with a massive battery. It also sports three cameras on the back including wide angle, along with 128 gigs storage and 6GB RAM.=

 

What could have been better:

Realme XT

Realme XT
4GB RAM, 64GB

6GB RAM, 64GB

8GB RAM, 128GB

What’s good:
The Realme XT carries the burden of being the first commercial launch with a 64MP sensor on the back. That, along with the other 3 cameras on the back and we’re hoping that the phone will excel in the camera department. Other specs are decent too, including Snapdragon 712, up to 8GB RAM and 128 gigs of storage, in-screen fingerprint sensor, fast charging and a decently large battery.

 

What could have been better:
No complaints.

Vivo Z1x
6GB RAM, 128GB

6GB RAM, 64GB

What’s good:
Okay, this place is getting a little crowded but here is another phone from Vivo. This one offers a good processor, enough storage and RAM, a large enough battery and fast charging to fill it up, and lastly, plenty of cameras.

 

What could have been better:
No complaints.

Oppo Reno2

OPPO Reno2

What’s good:
The reno series has always been about the camera and so is this one. It also features four cameras on the back, with one being for wide-angle shots, as well as 256GB storage and 8GB RAM. The battery size is decent too. Oh, and the primary camera comes with OIS.

 

What could have been better:
The Snapdragon 845 would beat the 730G at gaming and other tasks.

Samsung Galaxy A50s

Samsung Galaxy A50s

What’s good:
The Samsung A50s comes with a brand new Exynos 9611 which is comparable to Snadragon 712. It also features triple camera, acceptable storage, in-built fingerprint scanner, and a 32MP front camera.

 

What could have been better:
It’s a good phone, but then, overpriced compared to the competition.

OnePlus 7T

OnePlus 7T
128GB memory

256GB memory

What’s good:
Whenever the competition starts to geta little intense, OnePlus usually comes with a new phone to beat them all. This is exactly what has happenend again and the 7T is answer to all the Oneplus challengers. What makes it great is the fact that it now comes with the faster 855+ and a 90Hz display. The camera count on the back has gone up by one while the battery charges at an impressive 30W rate.

 

What could have been better:
No memory expansion slot or 3.5mm jack are a bummer.

Asus ROG Phone II

Asus ROG Phone II
128GB/8GB RAM

512GB/12GB RAM

What’s good:
Why are gaming phones better at gaming despite having the same specs as other phones? Because they are designed keeping cooling in mind and that allows the processor to operate at higher performance for a longer duration. This phone offers a flagship processor, not just the 855 but Snapdragon 855+, up to 12GB RAM, and ample battery and storage options. There’s faster than most fast charging a mammoth battery, and cooling vents on the backside.

 

What could have been better:
Well, it could have had an in-built nuclear reactor because there’s nothing else to ask here. On a serious note, at 240g, it’s not feather-light

OnePlus 7 Pro

best phone above 50000 - oneplus 7 pro

What’s good:
Well, an improvement to an already excellent phone. The 7T Pro features top of the line processor, improved cameras, wireles charging, Android 10.0 out of the box, and blazing fast UFS 3.0 storage. We also like things like no notch, a much higher resolution display with 90Hz refresh rate, a wide-angle camera, a popup selfie, faster charging, and a larger battery.

Not to confuse you with the camera specs listed above, we’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 bokeh. Also, OIS refers to optical image stabilization, which helps in reducing blur.
