best phones under rs 8000 in india

We’ve put together the list of the top 5 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.

*Top 2 picks around Rs 8,000*

 

1. RealMe C1

Realme C1

What’s good:
Seems like Oppo has decided to give Xiaomi a run for its money. After RealMe 2 Pro here’s another great challenger for Rs 7,000. The C1 offers a great processor seen in phones around 12k, dual cameras, and a large battery. Android 8.1 complete the package and there’s a notch too if you prefer having one.

 

What could have been better:
We don’t think there’s one.

2. 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.

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 These will make sure your phone isn’t outdated after just a year.
