When it comes to the Note series of Samsung, we enter in another league of smartphones.

4. HTC One M8 Eye:

Well who’s not impressed with the beautiful design of the HTC One M8? Then what’s the need of HTC One M8 Eye? Well who’s not unimpressed with the camera quality of the M8 :-p In short, the One M8 has a great design, I can even say that it is one of the best looking smartphones in the world. But the ultra-pixel camera was not a great move. So, HTC launched the M8 Eye which has the 13 MP rear camera and 5 MP front cameras and both the cameras are really very good. It runs on the 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 Quad Core Processor coupled with 2 GB RAM. It’s the same processor used in most of the phones in this list so the performance of the phone is very good. It has the 5.0 inches Full HD screen and the display of the phone is amazing. The One M8 Eye has 16 GB internal space which can be expanded upto 128 GB with the help of a microSD card. It has a 2600 mAh battery which gives a decent battery backup. Overall, I can say that the design of the phone is very attractive and you may fall in love with it, and if you do, please listen to your heart and go with the phone. It may not have the best specs in this list but it gives you a great metal feel, good user experience and of course it is powerful. If you are a selfie lover, going with the HTC Desire Eye with 13 MP front camera and front flash will be a good choice, it has equally powerful specs as well.

5. Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro:

The Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro is the beast of the phones, the only reason to place it on the 5th spot is its very large 6.0 inches screen which will be suitable for only few users. It runs on the 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 Processor coupled with 3 GB RAM. The performance of the phone is excellent, its smooth, lag-free and its great. Another major feature of the phone is its Quad HD Display of 1440 x 2560 pixels which produces a whooping 490 ppi pixel density even at such a large screen. The display of the phone is just amazing! The Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro has got 16 MP camera which is very good. It has also got 5 MP front facing camera which is great for selfie lovers, low light photography is also very good with the phone with its dual-LED flash. It has got great 32 GB internal storage which can be expanded upto 128 GB, those are pretty big numbers! The phone supports dual sim but, there is a catch. The sim 2 slot is also used as the microSD slot so at a time you can either use the 2nd sim or the microSD card and can’t use both at the same time. The phone with its Li-Po 4000 mAh battery is great on battery department also. Overall, it’s a great phone considering the so much it has to offer but we believe 6 inches screen is way too much, for most of the users its quite large and uncomfortable but, if you are okay with it then this is an absolute buy.

    Hello Sir ,
    I am a student and I am looking forward to buy a phone to suit my needs. I want to have a dual sim phone with (more than or just) average battery life. It should function smoothly with no lagging or heating issues. I want to basically use it for exchanging notes(pics) through whats-app and might as well use it for watching videos. I also want to record my lectures at college. other than that messaging , calling, and web browsing are the uses. I dont play games a lot.I have a budget of below 30000 might extend it just a bit to suit my needs. Can you please recommend me 1-2 mobiles since my father is going to send it from Saudi so will have to look into availability too. Please don’t bother with apple, and am not a fan of Samsung too. Any other brands might do.

    I’m looking for an android phone around 30k (or maybe higher, price is secondary as long as my requirements are met). It has to have flagship performance but should have a 4-4.5 inches screen. Not more. 4.5 is maximum. And I repeat, it has to be android. Please suggest the best phone for me.
