Standout features in the top smartphones under Rs 8,000:

The best phones under Rs 8,000 come with features like 3GB RAM, Android 7.1, and 32 gigs of internal memory. On the other hand, 2GB RAM, HD display and Android 7.0 have become the norm rather than the exception. We’re not very fond of MediaTek 673x series of processor, especially if the phone comes with single core GPU (720MP1).

  • Best battery • P55 Max (5,000mAh)
  • Phones likely to get Android 8.0 • Redmi 5A
  • Best camera (based on specs) • Redmi 4
