Redmi Note 10 Pro Max

Redmi Note 10 Max Price in India

Xiaomi is back with a bang, they have launched a killer smartphone under Rs 20,000 in India. At this movement, there is no other smartphone that can compete with Redmi Note 10 Pro Max.

The phone is powered by Snapdragon 732G processor which is by far a powerful processor under Snapdragon 700 series. It also has a 120Hz AMOLED display and the phone is made of glass. Overall, when you hold Redmi Note 10 Pro Max in the hand, it feels premium.

Xiaomi has also changed the design this time, it’s better than what we have seen with Redmi Note 9 Series. The key selling point of the Redmi Note 10 Pro max is a 120Hz AMOLED display because there is no other smartphone that offers a higher refresh rate along with an AMOLED display.

Max version has a 5,020 mAh battery with 33W fast charging support while there is a missive 108MP primary sensor which is the best thing you can get under Rs 20,000.

In short, if your budget is Under ₹20,000 and if you want the overall best smartphone then just order Redmi Note 10 Pro Max but if you want to pay less money then you can also take look at Redmi Note 10 Pro which has everything that is present on max version expect 108MP primary sensor.

Redmi Note 10 Pro – Editors choice

Redmi Note 10 Pro Price in India

Xiaomi had launched three phones under Redmi Note 10 series and Redmi Note 10 Pro is one of them. There is no huge difference between the Pro version & the Max version, the only thing that makes both of these smartphone different is the camera setup.

Max version has 108MP primary sensor while Pro version has 64MP primary sensor and that’s it, everything else is the same, not slight difference.

Now, if you ask me, you can save two thousand by buying Redmi Note 10 Pro but if you want that 108MP camera sensor then you can pay extra 2k.

For those who are wondering, there is no huge difference in the camera department. Both the Pro & Max version will give the same image quality. It just that, Redmi is charging an extra 2k for 108MP and that’s just a marketing gimmick, so don’t fall for that.

From here, you don’t have to check out any other mobile phones, if you want the best phone below 20k then just go with Redmi Note 10 Pro, you won’t disappoint after buying it.

POCO X3 Pro – Best for Gamers

POCO X3 Pro Price in India

How many of you have to remember POCO F1, that same POCO has done with POCO X3 Pro. The phone is powered by a powerful Snapdragon 860 SoC which is by far the best processor available under ₹20,000 in India.

By the way, the phone doesn’t have the best camera setup, it’s also made out of plastic. The phone weight is about 215 gram which is by far the heaviest phone available under 20k, I mean you will feel the pain in the hand if you watch movies for two hours.

The POCO X3 Pro comes with a 5,160 mAh battery with 33W fast charging support and the phone is running on MIUI-12 based on Android 11.

As I have said in the POCO X3 Pro review, it’s not made for everyone, POCO is targeting this phone to gamers. So if you play lots of games then this could best phone you can buy for under 20k because it has Snapdragon 860 Soc along with a 120Hz LCD display.

Who should buy POCO X3 Pro?

If you’re that person who plays lots of games then don’t you think about to buy any other phone under 20k but if you don’t play lots of game and you want overall balanced smartphone then just go wit Redmi Note 10 Pro. In short, POCO X3 Pro is for gamers and not for casual users.

Motorola G60

Redmi Note 10 Pro and Max version has the same specs and as I said, go with the Pro version and skip the Max version and this is the same case with Moto G40 & G60. Here too, just skip G60 and go with G40.

Coming to Moto G60, it comes with a 6.80-inches 120Hz LCD display while there is a 6,000 mAh battery with 20W fast charging support. The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G SoC and it’s Android 11 and this is pure stock, no ads, no bloatware.

Here you could change your mind, the Moto G60 has a massive 108MP primary sensor + 8MP ultra-wide + 2MP depth sensor while there is a 32MP selfie shooter. Still, both G40 & G60 produce the same image quality, 108MP sensor is here for marketing, that’s it.

In short, just four thousand and go with G40 and if you’re paying 18k then just go with Redmi Note 10 Pro because this makes more sense.

RealMe Narzo 30 Pro: Go 5G

RealMe Narzo 30 Pro Price in India

RealMe Narzo 30 Pro is the cheapest 5G smartphone available in India. It’s powered by MediaTek MT6853 Dimensity 800U and this is a 5G ready chipset. The phone is running on RealMe UI-based on Android 10, yet to get an Android 11 update.

MediaTek Dimensity 800U is a gaming processor but it’s nowhere near to Snapdragon 860 SoC. Now you will say, why would I buy Narzo 30 Pro over POCO X3 Pro?.

This is where you have to choose between 4G and 5G, if you don’t care about 5G then you don’t have to read this but if you will keep the phone for four to five years then ReaMe Narzo 30 Pro could be your next phone.

If you ask me, 5G won’t be available all over India for next two to three year. So it’s better to buy best 4G phone rather then good 5G phone.

Still for those who want cheapest 5G phone, Narzo 30 Pro does make sense.

Who Should buy RealMe Narzo 30 Pro?

If you want 5G, just go for it but if you want overall, best smartphone, just go with Redmi Note 10 Pro or for gaming, POCO X3 Pro.

RealMe X7 5G

RealMe X7 Price in India

RealMe use to launch smartphones at affordable price range but this is not affordable smartphone because RealMe X7 is priced at Rs 19,999 which is bit extra considering the specifications.

The RealMe X7 is powered by MediaTek Dimensity 800U and it has 5G support. The phone support n1/n41/n77/n78 5G bands which is good because there is some phone who only support one 5G band (ex OnePlus Nord).

The phone is made out of plastic but the phone has batter camera setup. RealMe has also added 50W fast charging support.

There is not a huge difference between Narzo 30 Pro and RealMe X7. Both the phone has 5G and the same chipset, now if you want slightly better camera setup and fast charging support then you can buy RealMe X7 but if you’re okay with an above-average camera setup then I would say, save three thousand and go with Narzo 30 Pro.

Who Should buy RealMe Narzo 30 Pro?

If you ask me, this could have been a good smartphone, if RealMe hasn’t launched the Narzo 30 Pro but now, RealMe X7 is not a good smartphone to buy at a 20k price tag. If you want 5G support then there is Narzo 30 Pro but still, for those, who want 5G and a slightly better camera setup then you can pay an extra 3k and buy RealMe X7 5G.

POCO X3

POCO X3 Price in India

After the launch of POCO X3 Pro, POCO India cut down the POCO X3 price. POCO X3 was priced at Rs 16,999 for 6GB Ram + 64GB Storage but now it’s available at Rs 14,999 for the same version.

The phone weight is 215 gram and this is not the best thing because when you hold the phone for while, your hand will feel pain. It does have a 6,000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging support.

The POCO X3 is powered by Snapdragon 732G processor which is the same as Redmi Note 10 Pro. POCO has done a good job in the camera department and now, the phone is available at 15k, so it’s even better than ever.

For those who are wondering, it’s made out of plastic and has 6.67-inches 120Hz LCD display.

Who should buy POCO X3?

If your budget is only 15k and if you can’t go above that then POCO X3 is good deal at this movement but of course, if you can spend little more then there is Redmi Note 10 Pro which is available at 17k.

RealMe 8 Pro – Overpriced

RealMe 8 Pro Price in India

This could have been the best smartphone in 2020 but now in 2021, this is just another phone that has a 108MP camera sensor and that’s it. The RealMe 8 Pro is powered by a well-known Snapdragon 720G processor and it’s running on RealMe UI 2.0-based on Android 11.

RealMe has also added 108MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide lens and there is a 2MP+2MP sensor which doesn’t make any sense. On the front side, the phone has a 16MP selfie shooter.

No doubt, the phone has good camera setup but it’s not as good as Redmi Note 10 Pro. The phone is also made out of plastic and it only has 60Hz AMOLED display.

Overall, RealMe has just changed the design and rear cameras and everything else is the same as the last-gen RealMe 7 Pro. Still, RealMe 8 Pro is not a bad phone but keep in mind, if you buy this phone, you’re paying three thousand extra.

Who Should buy RealMe 8 Pro?

If you don’t like MIUI or Xiaomi brand then RealMe 8 Pro is the only option you have under Rs 20,000 but if you can work with MIUI then there is no point to look at RealMe 8 Pro.

RealMe 8 – Another Overpriced Phone from RealMe

RealMe 8 Price in India

RealMe 8 or RealMe 7, both the phones has the same specifications. You may have heard of, “Gangadhar hi Shaktiman hai” RealMe has done the same thing with RealMe 8, they just changed the design and said, I’m not Shaktiman.

The phone is powered by MediaTek Helio G95 SoC and it’s running on RealMe UI 2.0-based on Android 11. It has a 6.40-inches 60Hz AMOLED display and 1000 nits of display brightness.

There is a quad-camera setup but those cameras are not as good as the price tag, RealMe needs to work on the camera. Also, you can’t just wait for them to improve the camera, only time will tell, whether they improve the camera or not?

Because of the AMOLED display, RealMe able to add an in-display fingerprint sensor. The RealMe 8 comes with a 5,000 mAh battery and 30W fast charging support and that 30W charger will charge this phone from 0% to 100 in 65 minutes.

Who should buy RealMe 8?

No one, I’m not kidding. The phone should have launched at 12k but now that RealMe has hired Salman Khan, they have to pay some money. So they are charging more money from us.

Look if you want, value for money smartphone then RealMe 8 is not the one you should buy. You can also take look at POCO X3 or Redmi Note 10 or Pro version.

Redmi Note 10 – Best Affordable Phone in India

Redmi Note 10 Price in India

If you don’t want to spend almost 20k on smartphone then I present to you Redmi Note 10 which is priced at Rs 11,999. The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 (11 nm) and it’s running on MIUI 12-based on Android 11.

It comes with 48MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide and 2MP+2MP sensors while there 13MP selfie shooter. The phone is made out of plastic which is okay because it’s priced at 12k.

Talking about the 48MP primary sensor, it takes some good quality images, after a long time I feel, Xiaomi has done a good job in a budget smartphone but when it’s come to night photography, the phone does not do justice to the 48MP sensor.

Redmi Needs to work on night photography but considering the price tag, it’s not that bad. Overall, the phone has a good camera setup, you won’t be disappointed after buying it.

It also has 5,000 mAh battery with 33W fast charging support and it comes with 6.43-inches 60Hz AMOLED display.

Who should buy Redmi Note 10?

If your budget is below 13k and if you want best Android smartphone then don’t search for anything else, just go wit Redmi Note 10. Now, of course, if you can spend more then 15k then you know which phone to buy, yes, Redmi Note 10 Pro.

Redmi Note 9 Pro – add on

Redmi Note 9 Pro Price in India

Redmi Note 9 Pro was priced at Rs 13,999 but after the launch of Redmi Note 10 series, Redmi cut down the prices and now it’s available at Rs 12,999 for 6GB Ram + 64GB Storage.

The phone was launched in 2020 but still, at Rs 12,999, this is good buy.

It’s powered by Snapdragon 720G processor and it’s running on MIUI 12-based on Android 10. The phone is coupled with 64MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide lens, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor while there is 16MP selfie shooter.

Talking about image quality, after one years of OTA update, the phone does capture some good quality images and at 13k price tag, there is nothing to complaint about.

Who Should buy Redmi Note 9 Pro

Redmi Note 9 Pro is not bad phone but it’s one year old smartphone, so if you’re playing 13k then I would say add 2k extra and go with POCO X3. Now if you don’t want to pay extra 2k then Redmi Note 9 Pro would be good option for you.
