With the smartphone market gets ever so saturated, and the manufacturers racing to put their best technologies in shelves for customers.The heat seems to have reached the budget-friendly mobile segment, this segment a few years ago barely had a decent phone to provide and today we have all the major manufacturers battling to champion this segment.We are bringing the best smartphone we feel is a segment-best in their own unique way.
Moto E4 Plus
We can’t begin this segment without mentioning Motorola; they were responsible for making people feel that they did not have to compromise in performance to get a decent product with its E series.
E4 & E4 Plus is Motorola’s 4th iteration of its popular E series. This is their best effort in providing customers with an amazing smartphone that not only looks good but performs equally well. This phone comes in two colours Iron Grey and Fine Gold, a MediaTek MTK6737 1.3GHz Processor along with 3 GB Ram and 32 GB of onboard storage which is expandable up to 128 GB via SD card, standard 13 MP camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera along with selfie flash, 5.5 inch HD 720p screen, Front Facing Fingerprint Sensor embedded in home button that can be used an multitasking button. It comes with a 5000 mAh battery that gives it two days battery backup.
The only downside that I can feel for this phone is its MediaTek processor that is used in many low-end devices but the 3 GB Ram and the clean Android experience more than aptly makes up for it.
This phone is aimed towards those who want to experience a hassle-free android experience and be up-to-date on the latest version of Android OS, along with near endless battery backup.
If you are considering buying a smartphone for Gaming or any photography stay away from this device. At an MRP of Rs. 9,999 ($ 150) this a good buy.
Xiaomi Redmi 4
Xiaomi is a very serious contender with its Redmi phones. The Redmi 4 has a 13MP primary camera with 5-elements lens, f/2.2 aperture, PDAF, high dynamic range (HDR), panorama, 1080p full HD video recording and 5MP front-facing camera, a 5 inch display with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution and 293 PPI pixel density, Android v6.0.1 Marshmallow with up to 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 octa-core processor with Adreno 505 GPU. The base models have 2GB RAM, 16GB internal memory and goes up to 4 GB Ram and 64 GB internal memory. This phone sports an all-metal unibody construction sealing the 4100mAH lithium-ion battery providing talk-time of 36 hours and standby time of 432 hours in 4G.
This phone is aimed at users who are aiming at a premium handset feel, with a decent camera and decent performance that can get you through the day.
At a base MRP of Rs. 6,999 ($ 105) this makes for an amazing buy
