best phones under rs 8000 in india

We’ve put together the list of the best phones under Rs 8,000 for this month in India. These include the best Android phones available in India from reputable manufacturers. All of these phones also support 4G networks running in India and should offer you decent performance for the asking price. With features such as 2GB/3GB RAM and capable processors, no, they won’t lag.

Just to clarify, phones with hybrid SIM slot allow you to either place a second SIM or a microSD card, but not both at the same time, so it’s a disadvantage.

These are the best phones under Rs 8,000 in India (2018):

 

*Top 3 picks around Rs 8,000*

 

1. Xiaomi Redmi 6

Redmi 6

What’s good:
If you were getting a feeling that the Redmi 5 is rather old, you connected a nerve with Xiaomi since the all-new Redmi 6 is here. What’s changed is a dual camera on the back, Android 8.1, and a slightly smaller display.

 

What could have been better:
There’s a hybrid SIM slot. Lastly, is it just us or have the bezels grown thicker?

10.or D2

best phones under 6000 rs in India - 10.or E

What’s good:
The reason why we have this on the list is because this is a brand belonging to Amazon. The phone offers decent features like 3GB RAM, 32 gigs of storage, a decent processor, and Android 8.0 out of the box.

 

What could have been better:
We still have trust issues with this brand. Not because it’s bad, but it’s relatively unknown and some reviews aren’t all that great.

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

The best phones under Rs 8,000 come with features like 3GB RAM, Android 8.0, 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). Also, you will need 3GB RAM and at least 32 gigs of memory. These will make sure your phone isn’t outdated after just a year.

  • Best battery • Ray 600 (4,000mAh)
  • Best processor • Redmi 6
  • Best value for money • Redmi 6
    • Redmi 5A
