Best Smartphone under 7000 Rs. since May-17

1. Xiaomi Redmi 4 (2/16 GB):

After the massive success of the Redmi 3s and 3s Prime smartphones, Xiaomi has launched their successor – the Redmi 4, which comes with many advancements. The new Redmi 4 has become super hit right from its first flash sale where 250,000 units were sold in under 8 minutes. But what makes this phone so popular? Let’s find out. Xiaomi has been gradually improving the look and feel of its devices in the Redmi series and with the Redmi 4, they have done amazing job with its design and build quality… Expand Review

The phone comes with a full metal unibody design with a 2.5D curved glass on the front. The phone from nowhere feels like a budget phone but instead feels very premium and high quality for its price. It comes with a 5-inches HD display which has decent quality, still a Full HD display would have made the phone perfect. The Redmi 4 runs on a 1.4 GHz octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor coupled with 2/3/4 GB RAM and Adreno 505 GPU. The performance is good and it handles daily usage and multitasking smoothly. It can also handle games but is not meant for heavy gaming. A great thing in the phone is its huge 4,100 mAh non-removable battery which gives a very good battery backup, Xiaomi has done a commendable job in packing a massive battery in just a 5 inches phone without increasing the phone’s thickness or weight. A bigger battery automatically makes your phone a better device as it reduces your pain to charge it in frequent intervals and also reduces FOSO (Fear of Switching Off)! The Redmi 4 comes with a 13 MP rear camera with ƒ/2.0 aperture, the picture quality is much improved and the picture quality is pretty good for its price. The 5 MP ƒ/2.2 aperture front camera is also good, Xiaomi has also added real time face filters which makes selfies more fun. The phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow but also includes Android 7.0 Nougat Preview (beta) out of the box so, early birds can also enjoy Nougat before its public version is rolled out. Xiaomi’s MIUI 8 runs on top, although it is resource intensive and heavily customised, it is the best Android ROM from a phone manufacturer, not only it has a lot of useful features like Second space, Dual apps, etc. (more details about the MIUI 8 here) but, it also has a very large user base and a big online community. The phone packs a very accurate fingerprint scanner on the back and also includes an IR blaster with an inbuilt remote app which lets you control TV, AC, and a lot of devices from your mobile itself. It is a dual sim phone with 4G and VoLTE and it comes in three storage variants 16/32/64 GB, all of which are expandable up to 128 GB via microSD card but use a hybrid slot so you won’t be able to use dual sim and microSD card simultaneously.

Should you buy?
Overall, the Xiaomi Redmi 4 is a great 5 inches budget smartphone. It is a beautiful phone with balanced hardware, very good design, good and latest software and ticks almost all the boxes right and can be picked up with closed eyes. And the 2 GB RAM and 16 GB storage variant offers great value for money and hard to beat features at just 6999 Rs. It is undoubtedly the best phone under 7000 Rs. in India currently.

2. Moto C Plus:

Motorola has launched its new budget smartphone Moto C Plus in India. It is a bigger variant of the Moto C which is also recently announced in India. The Moto C Plus comes with a polycarbonate body unlike most other budget smartphones which offer a more premium metal body, however, the phone is sturdy and the build quality is good. It sports a 5 inches HD display which has good quality for its price. The phone runs on… Expand Review

the 1.3 GHz quad core MediaTek MT6737 processor coupled with 2 GB RAM and Mali-T720MP2 GPU. The performance is good and lag free for day to day usage and some gaming however, heavy users and heavy gamers should stay away from it and go for the more powerful Redmi 4. The Moto C Plus packs an 8 MP rear camera with ƒ/2.2 aperture, 720p video recording and LED flash, the picture quality is good in day light however, average in low light conditions. Surprisingly, it packs just a 2 MP front camera, at these times, 5 MP has become the minimum standard and almost all the budget phones come with a minimum of 5 MP front camera so, Moto’s move can be deal breaking for some. The selfie quality is average to be honest but, a good thing is, it includes an LED flash for the selfie camera as well so, low light and night selfies come out good. It runs on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat with stock Android UI, which is great and rare for a budget smartphone. Motorola has included some helpful actions like twist the phone to open camera, chop twice to turn on flashlight, etc. and it also includes the split screen mode. It is backed by a 4000 mAh battery which is removable and provides great battery backup however, due to the big battery, the phone weighs 162 grams and has a thickness of 10mm and feels a bit bulkier. It doesn’t support fast charging and takes around 2 hours for a full charge. It is a dual sim phone with 4G and VoLTE support and comes with dedicated slots for the two sim cards and the microSD card, again a good thing as most phones come with hybrid slot these days. The phone doesn’t include a fingerprint scanner, a feature which some of its top competitors like the Redmi 4 offer at the same price. The Moto C Plus packs 16 GB of onboard storage which is expandable upto 32 GB via a microSD card.

Should you buy?
Overall, the Moto C Plus is a good phone with decent features and big battery. However, apart from the big battery, it doesn’t boast of big numbers anywhere but the phone as whole, delivers a solid user experience with latest and stock Android. So, if you are not a heavy user, you can definitely consider the Moto C Plus under 7000 Rs.

3. InFocus Turbo 5:

InFocus, with an intent to become a key player in the Indian smartphone market, has launched its new InFocus Turbo 5 smartphone, which boasts of its massive battery. It packs a 5,000 mAh battery which is hardly seen on a 7000 Rs. phone. It delivers pretty good battery backup and a good thing is, the battery also supports reverse charging, which means you can use the phone as a powerbank to charge your other devices as well. So travellers or those who live on the go will get quite a lot from the phone. Coming to the design… Expand Review

it packs in a metal unibody design and a 2.5D curved glass on the front, the build quality is good and the phone looks decent. And despite the big battery, it manages to keep the weight at 164 grams which is very good. It sports a 5.2 inches HD display which has decent quality. The Turbo 5 runs on 1.25 GHz quad core MediaTek MT6737 processor coupled with Mali T720 MP1 GPU. It comes in two variants, one with 2 GB RAM, 16 GB storage and other with 3 GB RAM, 32 GB storage. The performance of the phone is good for day to day usage and some gaming but it is not made for heavy users and gamers. The Turbo 5 comes with a 13 MP rear and a 5 MP front camera, the picture quality of both the cameras is decent in day light conditions but average in low light and night. It runs on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat with company’s InLife UI running on top, it packs some useful features and customisations but is also laggy at times. It packs a decent fingerprint scanner on the back. It is dual sim smartphone with 4G and VoLTE. It is expandable upto 32 GB via microSD card but has a hybrid slot. The battery doesn’t support fast charging and as it is a big battery, it takes a while to get fully charged.

Should you buy?
Overall, the InFocus Turbo 5 is a decent smartphone. The best part of the phone is its big 5,000 mAh battery which is great for those who really need the additional juice. However, if you keep that aside, there is nothing in the phone to get excited about, and there are better smartphones available. Still, it can be a good choice for it price.

4. 10.or E (2 GB):

10.or (pronounced Tenor), the new Chinese smartphone brand by Huaqin Technology has entered India with its first smartphone 10.or E. The smartphone comes with very impressive specifications at a very affordable price. The best part is, the phone comes with latest stock Android v7.1.2 Nougat with promised Android security updates and an update to Android Oreo. Design wise, the phone has a usual design with plastic body however, the build quality is good and despite the big battery and big screen, it manages to keep the weight… Expand Review

reduced to 150 grams only. It sports a 5.5 inches full HD screen which is hardly seen at this price, the display quality is not bad for the price. The phone also comes with the Coning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on top. It runs on the 1.5 GHz octa core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor paired with 2/3 GB RAM, the performance is decent for day to day usage and moderate gaming however, heavy games may not be very smooth. The 10.or E packs a 13 MP rear and a 5 MP front camera, both come with f/2.0 aperture and single LED flash. The picture quality of the cameras is decent. It packs a fast fingerprint scanner on the rear and includes dual sim and a microSD slot. It comes with 16/32 GB of internal storage which is expandable up to 128 GB. It is backed by a Li-Po 4000 mAh battery which delivers very good battery backup.

Should you buy?
10.or is a new entrant in the Indian market and we don’t usually recommend to go with a new brand instantly. However, the 10.or E is a good phone and packs some really good specifications for its price. A big 5.5 inches screen with full HD display, good performance, big battery, decent cameras and stock Android with guaranteed future updates is a package which no other phone is offering at this price. So, if you are looking for a big phone with all such features, the 10.or can be a good buy.

5. Infinix Hot 4 Pro:

Infinix, a new entrant in the Indian smartphone market, has launched its first smartphones in the country, and out of the two, the Infinix Hot 4 Pro is the cheaper one. The phone comes in a plastic body which is not as good as compared to the excellently built metal unibody smartphones like the Redmi 4. It comes in a glossy textured back, which looks like the thing of past. The phone packs a 5.5 inches screen HD display which has average quality. The phone packs a big 4000 mAh battery which delivers good battery backup… Expand Review

But due to the big battery, it weighs at 175 grams and has a thickness of 8.8 mm. When it comes to the performance, the phone is powered by the 1.3 GHz octa core Mediatek MT6737 processor paired with 3 GB RAM and the performance, again, is average, however day to day usage is acceptable. It features a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front facing camera, both come with LED flash. Both the cameras are more of average quality. Sadly, the phone runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with company’s XOS running on top, which is another heavily customised UI. It has some decent features, customisations and also supports dual apps but, also comes with a lot of bloatware. It comes with a fast fingerprint scanner situated on the back. It is a dual sim phone and comes with 16 GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 128 GB via microSD card, thankfully it has dedicated slots. The Infinix Hot 4 Pro comes with Dirac Stereo speakers, which deliver good audio quality.

Should you buy?
Overall, the Infinix Hot 4 Pro wants to be a good and balanced smartphone and it packs some decent specifications for it. But everything on the phone, except the battery life, is fairly average and there are much better smartphones like the Redmi 4 available at this price. Not a very good choice.

  2. please suggest me a mobile under 7000rs except redmi because it is always out of stock… please anyone reply me fast..

  3. As xioami redmi 3s cant support both sim cards + MicroSD card,I want to know whether xioami redmi 4A can support that or not!!

  4. Hi Rahul
    Greetings!
    Can u suggest me best performance phone with 5inch screen (no iPhone please). Range u can suggest upto 20-25 k

  5. I don’t personally like xiaomi products, they are cheap but their hardware quality is very low. It will go smoothly for around a year, later then, the phone heats up so much and the performance decreases exponentially. If we are comparing phones from other companies in the same price segment (Samsung, Motorola, or some other good brands) their hardware quality is pretty much better.

  6. sir can u plz tell me which Mobile camera is better among xiaomi redmi 3s prime vs Motorola moto g turbo vs Asus zenfone 2 laser ze550kl…???

    1. The Moto G Turbo and Zenfone 2 Laser have better picture quality and among the two, the Zenfone 2 Laser is marginally better. However, the Moto G Turbo is a better overall package.
