1. Honor 9N :
Rs 17,999 for 4GB RAM and 128GB storage; Rs 13,999 for 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The phone comes with three storage configurations: 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB. In terms of photography, Honor 9N offers dual rear cameras packing a 13MP primary sensor and a 2MP secondary sensor for depth sensing. Up front, it has a 16MP camera. Honor 9N runs EMUI 8.0 based Android Oreo OS. It pegs a decent 3000mAh battery which lasts for a day on moderate usage. The Honor 9N tags a price of Rs 17,999 for the top-end model that carries 4GB of RAM and 128GB onboard storage. However, we would recommend going for the 64GB model that too has 4GB RAM but saves you a whopping Rs 4000. You can later invest less than a third of those savings in a MicroSD card if you need more storage space.
2. Moto G6
Lenovo-owned brand Motorola, well-known for bringing quality smartphones at a mid-range price point, launched the Moto G6 in India in April this year. The sixth generation Moto G series phone carries the requisite modern aspects for an affordable price tag. Moto G6 brandishes an elegant 3D contoured glass design and a compact tall body. It is one of the first smartphones from the company’s shelf to bear an 18:9 display. Another notable aspect on the Moto G6 is its dual camera setup that offers bright images with good color reproduction under decent lighting conditions. The stock Android is another delight that caters to a smooth UI experience.
3. Huawei P20 Lite
Huawei’s mid-range smartphone P20 Lite flaunts a captivating glass and metal design. A dual-shade blend on the back panel that adds an exquisite touch to it.

The storage can be expanded further with a microSD card.
4. Oppo F7
Similar to Huawei and Honor smartphones, the Oppo F7 comes with a notch-style display. However, the Oppo smartphone has a slightly taller 6.23-inch screen which is a plus point in case you want to stream content on a bigger display. The display has a 2280 x 1080 pixel resolution. The phone is sheathed in a glossy cover coated either in shiny Solar Red or soothing Moonlight Silver color schemes. Oppo smartphones are most popular for their front-facing camera.

5. Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1
Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is a budget smartphone that comes with more than decent features. The smartphone was launched to take the popular Redmi Note 5 Pro head-on. Since the phone is set as a direct competitor against the Xiaomi phone, it does bear a few similarities in terms of processing hardware and display. Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor. Like the Redmi Note 5 Pro, the Asus smartphone comes with a 5.99-inch full HD+ 18:9 display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels.
