Xiaomi Redmi 9 Prime
Redmi 9 Prime came like a breath of fresh air in the market that was disrupted by the price hikes due to change in GST rates in India. The handset is priced below Rs 10,000 but you get a quad camera setup, a really good processor, good battery life, and even fast charging support with the Redmi 9 Prime. While Xiaomi was losing its charm with the aggressive push from Realme and Samsung in last year, Redmi 9 Prime put the brand back in the driving position for this price segment.
POCO M2 4GB RAM
POCO M2 is one of the easiest phones to recommend in this price range. With an extremely capable processor, quad cameras, fast-charging support, and good battery backup, the phone practically sells itself on paper. While the build quality and the design on the phone might not be particularly impressive, POCO M2 has most things going in its favour when it comes to daily use. This is not the best phone available at this price point but with a few tweaks, it could possibly have been.
Realme Narzo 30A
Realme Narzo 30A comes as a successor to the Narzo 20A and carries on the reputation of the affordable smartphone series in every way possible. Here you get a really good processor at the helm to take care of demanding tasks but there is also a massive battery included so that the phone doesn’t run out of juice while handling these requirements. The display panel is one of the finest that you can get for this price and the inclusion of USB Type-C means that the handset is compatible with the most common modern charging accessories. Hard to go wrong with this one.
Infinix Hot 10S
Infinix Hot 10S is a new entry on the list and the handset is a worthy addition to say the least. It comes with a capable processor, a smooth 90Hz display, and a 48MP primary camera. While these specs would have helped the phone reserve a place on this list, the massive 6,000mAh battery acts like a cherry on the cake. For most people’s daily needs, these are some crucial specifications and in this price range, it is hard to argue that the company could have offered more with this one.
