    Expert comment:   Mi 11X directly enters the list at the top as the phone isn't just loaded with specs but also translates these specs on paper to real world performance extremely well. With a flagship-grade processor, brilliant AMOLED display with butter-smooth 120Hz refresh rate, and premium design, Mi 11X definitely separates itself from other offerings on this list by some margin. While the cameras and software definitely have some room for improvement, the phone still needs more competition to dethrone it from the top.

    Realme X7 Max price in India
    + Compare
    Rs.26,989

    Expert comment:   Realme X7 Max is one of the most affordable flagships in the market at the moment. The phone comes with the backing of extreme performance along with a pleasing design, and a set of cameras that delivers excellent results. The handset runs Android 11-based Realme UI out of the box, which will later be upgraded to Android 12 via OTA update. Having said that, the phone comes with bloatware and lacks an expandable storage option.

    Expert comment:   The POCO F3 GT is arguably the most interesting smartphone under Rs 30K, thanks in no small part to its shoulder trigger buttons that should come in handy whilst playing games on the phone. It also helps that the handset is backed by MediaTek's top-tier Dimensity 1200 SoC that should entail buttery smooth performance.

    OnePlus Nord 2 price in India

    Rs.27,999

    Expert comment:   OnePlus Nord 2 is a stripped-down version of the company's flagship. The handset comes with a very similar camera bump to the OnePlus 9, and although the sensors are a bit different, its cameras offer similar functionality. At its core lies MediaTek Dimensity 1200-AI SoC, which may not be as fast as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC but should get the job done. Additionally, the phone packs a gorgeous AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, respectable 4,500mAh battery, and 65W WarpCharge solution.

    Rs.29,899

    Expert comment:   Xiaomi has really upped its game in the upper mid-range price category and the Mi 10T can easily be described as a flagship phone disguised as a mid-range handset. In the most crucial departments, Mi 10T blows the competition out of the water. The phone has powerful hardware that breezes through most tasks that you throw at it. On top of it, you get a 144Hz display, which isn't even present on most flagships worth twice this phone's price. In this price range, Mi 10T is an absolute steal.

    Rs.26,800

    Expert comment:   Realme X7 Pro is one of the few mid-range smartphones that offers truly flagship features at a reasonable price. Whether it is a butter-smooth 120Hz AMOLED display or a powerful processor, the handset shines on most fronts. The phone offers impressive camera performance but especially if you are a selfie enthusiast, you need to check this one out. Support for fast-charging and a premium design combine to make this an all-around package that is worth every penny.

    Rs.22,639

    Expert comment:   Realme GT Master Edition is an excellent choice in this price range but just like Realme GT 5G, the phone underperforms in the camera department. Do not get us wrong, by underperforming, we do not mean that these phones are not capable of taking excellent images, because they are, however, in comparison to some other phones on the list, they do present some issues in certain conditions. Apart from that, you get a phone that has a brilliant display and performs like a champ. The phone has a distinct look to go along with its powerful hardware.
