6. Honor 8X (6/128 GB):

Should you buy?
Overall, the Honor 8X is a stunning smartphone in terms of looks & design. Its metal body with glass back which has dual tone finish & an impressive front with a really thin chin on the bottom gives it a look & feel of a much more premium smartphone than its price. It has also got a huge display having good quality, very good performance, excellent front camera, slo-mo videos, big battery, a very fast fingerprint scanner & face unlock, & good software features with the EMUI. However, it also has some weaknesses which majorly include the rear camera (it’s not very bad though), which also misses out on 4K & EIS for videos & lacks real fast charging. Still, as a package, the Honor 8X is a well-balanced phone & can be a great buy for its premium design & the big display.

7. Vivo V9 Pro:

Should you buy?
Overall, the Vivo V9 Pro, again comes with the company’s very good quality cameras, especially the front camera, and it can be a very good choice if you love taking selfies. However, this time Vivo has made a very good all-round package & the Vivo V9 Pro also comes with a great powerful processor with big RAM, beautiful looking design with gold color accents, good battery backup, fast face unlock along with fingerprint scanner & latest Android with lots of features. But, it also misses out a real fast charging, 4K video recording, USB Type-C & it is made out of plastic, which is less premium than metal & glass back phones. To sum it up, the Vivo V9 Pro is a good powerful package but it still falls behind the competition.

Should you buy?
Overall, the Oppo F9 wins you over its design, especially the front with its great above 90% screen to body ratio with that beautiful & tiny waterdrop notch is unique for this price point. It has an equally good looking back with beautiful gradient colors, however, a more premium metal glass build is expected at this price. The Oppo F9 has also got a big, excellent front camera with lots of features & good dual rear cameras along with very good performance, good battery backup with very fast charging, latest software & good features. It is a complete package and delivers good experience for all kind of users, can be a good buying choice.

9. Huawei Nova 3i:

Should you buy?
Overall, the Huawei Nova 3i is a very beautiful & premium smartphone, which has probably got the most premium design at this price. It has also got a good big display, very good performance with Huawei’s new processor & a very good battery life. The Nova 3i also does pretty well in the camera department & comes with lots of modes & stickers for camera lovers. However, for its price point, the Nova 3i lacks fast charging & USB Type-C which is sad. It’s still a good competitive package but the biggest roadblock in buying the Nova 3i is Huawei’s own more powerful & aggressively priced Honor Play. So, buy the Nova 3i only for its design otherwise, there are much better options.

  • No 4K video recording

  14. I am very confused to select phone under 20k

    I need minimum 4 gb ram and 64gb internal
    I am using only for calls watch movie listing music and some playing normal games like Coc and mini games pls tell me which phone i can buy?

    1. Hi, the iPhone SE packs some great hardware and is a very good phone, the only problem is its small 4 inches screen size. I would recommend you to first try the 4 inches screen for some time and see if it suits you as it is very small for multimedia, gaming and even day to day operations. So, going with the Moto G5 Plus will be a better option.

  15. which phone i should buy vivo , xioami , oppo,lenovo,samsung,moto,assus,panasonic,gionee,huiae , range-15000 to 20000

  16. Looking for the Best Camera Phone with good features and performance.
    Primary aim is Camera and Storage with great display.
    Also Selfies and Music is an option as well.
    Confused which Phone is the Best?

  17. Hi Rahul,
    I have been using moto g 2nd gen since its launch. There has been minor problems. Now I want a 4G supported phone, I guess MOTO G5 plus could be a good option. But the 3000mAh battery is not much appreciable. Now Honor 6X and Lenovo P2 seem quite interesting too.

    So, will you suggest me the best among three with their cons and pros?

    1. Hi, because of the battery efficient Snapdragon 625 processor the Moto G5 Plus delivers good battery backup. But if you need a serious battery backup, the Lenovo P2 can be a great choice.

  18. Hi,

    I am looking to buy a phone under 20k. I am looking for the following:

    – better camera
    – atleast 4GB RAM
    – better internal memory (>32GB)

    I am confused between nubio z11 mini s and Moto G5 plus and Moto M. While I love Moto due to unadultrated Android, Moto G5 has just 12 MP camera as against 23 MP of nubio.

    Please can you clarify?

    1. Hi, Moto G5 Plus is the best. The image quality of the rear camera of both the Moto G5 Plus and Nubia Z11 Mini S is very good, it’s only the front camera where the Z11 Mini S is a clear winner. So, it depends on your usage which one you should pick. However, according to me, Moto G5 Plus as a complete package is a much better smartphone.

  19. Hi, which mobile phone should be purchased below 20000?
    . Fast and Perfomance
    . good battery
    . fast operating system and processor
    . Dual Sim

  20. Hi .Im in an urgent need of a phone with price under 20k. I need some thing with a good camera storage and high performance …. pls suggest me… which should i go for vivo v5 plus or moto m or some other phone

  21. Hi RAHUL , which phone should I buy around at15000price range??I need very good CAMERA , DISPLAY , SPEAKER,and I am a heavy gamer,And Moto g5 plus if available in offline market in future ???? Please tell me . THANKS

    1. Hi, go with the Moto G5 Plus, it has great cameras, good performance and good display, its speakers are not the loudest but will do the job. The Moto G5 Plus may come to the offline markets but there are no more details on it.

  22. Hey Rahul,

    I am a great of Moto one of reason could be stock android. But when it comes performance I could see Lenovo Z2 Plus is better then Moto M. Now Moto G5 is also on release. Please help me choose between Moto G5 Plus and Moto M and Lenovo Z2 Plus. Also I would also be grateful if you can tell me if any other better phones are coming to market in the upcoming months then I could probably wait for it.

    1. Hi, go with the Moto G5 Plus, it is the best and most balanced out of the three. It has good performance as well but if you are a heavy user then you should go with the Lenovo Z2 Plus. Talking about the upcoming phones, the most exciting phone to launch soon is the Xiaomi Mi 6, it is expected to release in April and might come in two variants, the low end variant would cost somewhere around 20k-25k. It will be an amazing phone for sure but its India launch could see a bit more delay. Now, considering the current options you have, all the phones are pretty good value for money so, settling with probably the Moto G5 Plus would be a better choice than waiting for months in my opinion.
