This phone offers everything that a user may be searching desperately. It comes with a premium glass build with gradient finish offering a quad-camera setup with a 64-megapixel main camera and a 16-megapixel selfie camera. With a Snapdragon 712 chipset and up to 8GB RAM, performance is among the best in this class. The Realme XT is also powered by 4000mAh battery with VOOC 3.0 fast charging.

Redmi Note 8 Pro

Xiaomi has always grabbed the attention of the audience by offering excellent camera facilities and gaming chipset. This is evident in the Note 8 Pro device that gets the MediaTek Helio G90T chipset and that’s paired with MIUI 11 based on Android 9. Xiaomi is also offering a 64-megapixel main camera at the back and a 20-megapixel selfie camera. The Note 8 Pro also gets a premium glass-metal build quality, a 6.5-inch Full HD+ display and is kept alive by a 4500mAh battery, which now comes with an 18W fast charger included in the box.


The OPPO K3 has similar features and design like the Realme X. The phone has a large 6.5-inch display with a Full-HD+ resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The AMOLED display produces punchy colours and has good sharpness and brightness. There’s an in-display fingerprint sensor that works well at authentication. The pop-up selfie camera is also quick at ejection and retraction when using face unlock. 

The K3 runs on a Snapdragon 710 SoC and comes with either 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. There’s no expandable storage, which means 64GB might feel a little less in a few years. There’s ColorOS 6 based on Android 9 Pie, which runs smoothly and there’s plenty of shortcuts to use. 

The performance of the phone is good where one can run games smoothly without the device getting overheated. The bottom speaker also gets Dolby Atmos enhancement, which improves the sound quality. The rear 16-megapixel camera has good autofocus speed and captures detailed landscapes and close-ups. Low-light performance is also decent, which can be enhanced with the help of ‘Night’ mode. Battery life is very good too and the phone supports fast charging.

Samsung Galaxy A50s

The A50s offer all the necessary features making it look stylish and classy. Samsung is using an Exynos 9611 chipset with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, which should be good enough for most users throughout the day. Samsung also offers a 48-megapixel main camera at the back along with an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera. For selfies, there’s a 32-megapixel camera at the front. Along with this, the 6.4-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display makes the device appealing. 

Xiaomi Redmi K20

The Redmi K20’s aesthetics are appealing and it stands out in a sea of other phones with a glass slab design and gaudy gradients. The 6.39-inch AMOLED display is of excellent quality, and the in-display fingerprint sensor is also quick.

The triple rear cameras deliver impressive results, and except for the underwhelming low-light performance and some other minor issues, the overall output is a cut above what the competition offers. The phone’s battery life is also great, with the 4,000mAh unit easily making it past a day and more.

The Snapdragon 730 SoC powering this phone ascertains a lag-free usage in even the most demanding situations and delivers a smooth gaming experience. A refined MIUI with fewer ads and features like a dark mode, app drawer, and ambient display is an added bonus on the software side.
