Redmi Note 5 Pro

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro

The Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro was launched recently in the mid-February 2018 along with the Mi 4K TV. Since the launch of Redmi Note 3, this series is one of the best selling in the market. This is due to the fact that it offers a lot of premium grade hardware at an affordable rate.

Now talking about the device it is powered by the latest SnapDragon 636. It comes in two variants 4 GB RAM and 6 GB RAM with 64 GB of internal storage. The most hyped feature of this device is its dual camera setup on the rear of 12MP + 5MP camera.

Also, the front camera is whooping 20MP. No doubt it can take some of the best crispy looking photos but it has yet to be tested in the real world. Also, it is the first 18:9 aspect ratio smartphone by Xiaomi with 6-inch FHD+ display.

Redmi Note lineup is popular for its battery life and this time it’s no different. It is packed with a massive 4000mAh battery. We were expecting some fast charging technology but sadly there is none. We know that it’s asking too much but it’s a feature worth having.

Moto G5S Plus

Moto G5S Plus

Moto G5S Plus was launched a little earlier in August 2017. G-Series by Motorola is known for its price-performance ratio in budget price and this is no different.

Amazon Prime

It is powered by SnapDragon 625. There are two variants 32 GB storage with 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB storage with 4 GB of RAM. If you are a heavy multi-tasker we will suggest you go with the latter variant.

Coming to the camera, it also has a dual camera setup with both cameras having 13MP with f/2.0 aperture. If you take lots of selfies then there is a good news for you because this device has an 8MP front camera with flash. So selfies in dark can be crispier than any other device without flash.

It is packed with a typical 3000mAh battery. Wait, what? You will think that it is not something like Redmi Note 5 Pro is offering. But don’t be fooled because Moto G5S Plus comes with Motorola Turbo Charging which can boost your device battery up to 6 hours within 15 minutes of charging.

Xiaomi Mi A1

Xiaomi Mi A1

Xiaomi Mi A1 is an AndroidOne device. But do you know what that means?

It means you will get stock Android experience instead of the typical Xiaomi MiUi. Also, you will get faster updates. If you doubt this then remember that Mi A1 is running on Oreo which was received as an OTA update after few months of Oreo launch. Great isn’t it! 😀

Now talking about the specs. It is powered by SnapDragon 625 (Same as Moto G5s Plus) coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It has 5.5″ Full HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass protection.

The camera setup is a little different here. It has dual 12MP + 12MP camera setup at the rear but it is advertised that one camera is wide-angle and other is telephoto. But according to some reports, the portrait mode on this device is not perfect it misses the outlining in many conditions. But don’t worry this can be fixed with a software update.

It has 3080mAh battery and it is more than enough to last for a day. There is no fast charging option available.

Xiaomi Mi Max 2

Xiaomi Mi Max 2

This article is flooding with Xiaomi devices but guess what they are doing their best in this price range offering a wide range of options to choose from.

Mi Max 2 is powered by SnapDragon 625 coupled with 4 GB of RAM. There are three storage options available on this device i.e. 32/64/128GB. If you are a normal user 64GB is best for you and for heavy user 128GB is the way to go.

There is no dual camera setup here only a single 12MP rear camera but unlike other devices, this camera is capable of recording videos at 4K @ 30fps. Also, it has a decent 5MP front camera for selfies.

Do you know what Max stands for in Mi Max 2? Most probably it stands for the massive 5300mAh battery, one of the biggest battery in a smartphone.
