6. Xiaomi Redmi Y2 (3 GB):

Xiaomi, willingly or forcefully, has shifted its strategy and is now launching multiple smartphones at the same price point to make sure it keeps up with the competition and has something to offer for all types of users. We say forcefully because, Xiaomi already has the Redmi Note 5 which is an excellent phone and is still considered one of the best for its price, but it doesn’t have dual rear cameras or a big selfie shooter, which has become a big trend and more people are looking towards it. So, here is the Redmi Y2 with a dual rear camera setup and a big selfie shooter. Good thing is that the Redmi Y2… Read More »

Should you buy?
Overall, the Xiaomi Redmi Y2 offers, what the Redmi Note 5 and others could not offer at this price- excellent front & rear cameras, which are surely the best this price range has ever seen. It has also got good performance along with a beautiful design and a big display with 18:9 ratio. However, unlike most Xiaomi smartphones, which offer a complete package, it misses out on a FHD+ display, has got a plastic build & comes with a smaller battery than other Xiaomi phones. Still, the Redmi Y2 is a good phone, specially if you are a little tight on budget & need good cameras but, of course if you are ready for some compromises.

7. Realme 2:

The just one phone old ‘Realme’ brand from Oppo, which has now separated itself from the parent company, had been able to create a buzz with the Realme 1, and there was a good anticipation for its second phone, which is now launched as the Realme 2. Let’s get directly started with its review. The Realme 2 comes with the similar design like the Realme 1, which means it too has a fibreglass back with diamond cut reflective edges, which looks very beautiful and unique. Unlike the Realme 1… Read More »

Should you buy?
Overall, the Realme 2 is not a true successor to the popular Realme 1 but, it is a different kind of phone with some downgrades & some upgrades. It is a very beautiful phone with a big bezel-less display having notch & a unique diamond-like reflecting back. It also comes with acceptable cameras, delivers good day to day performance, latest Android, face unlock, fingerprint scanner & a huge battery with excellent backup. The Realme 2, as a package, delivers a balanced kind of experience and is a good phone for the price.

8. Lenovo K9:

Should you buy?
Overall, the Lenovo K9 is a solid all-round package. It packs a very beautiful glass back design, which is excellent for the price, good performance, decent cameras, almost stock Android UI, good display, USB Type-C & a fast fingerprint scanner. Apart from its design, there is nothing very great about the Lenovo K9 but at the same time, except for a few camera bug fixes, there is nothing very bad as well. So, all bundled as a balanced package, the Lenovo K9 is a good smartphone if you are seeking a little compact smartphone with good design and maybe which doesn’t come with a notch.

9. Honor 9 Lite (3 GB):

Huawei, after recently launching the Honor 9i and the Honor 7X has launched yet another budget smartphone with an 18:9 display, called as the Honor 9 Lite. The first thing you will notice about the phone is its stunning design, it comes with 2.5D curved glass on both the front and the back, and the company has specially made the back very reflective to give it a mirror-like finish. The phone really looks very beautiful in both the Midnight Black and Sapphire Blue color variants… Read More »

Should you buy?
Overall, the Honor 9 Lite is a very beautiful phone with its all-glass build and narrow bezel design. It also comes with a very good 18:9 aspect ratio display and latest Android 8.0 Oreo. However, one of its biggest highlight, the quad cameras, aren’t particularly great, neither is the performance for heavy gamers. Still, the Honor 9 Lite, especially the 3 GB variant packs in a lot a for its price and delivers many things which are unbeatable at this price. You can especially go for it if you want a more comfortable (like 5.2 inches) 18:9 display phone. It is one of the best phones under 10000 Rs. but with few conditions!
