Realme X2 Pro

Android v9.0 (Pie)
Rs.29,890

Expert comment:   When a handset offers the top-of-the-line chipset available in the market for half the price of most flagships, there is little room left for nitpicking. Realme X2 Pro doesn't just feature a great processor but offers an extremely capable camera setup, headlined by a whopping 64MP camera sensor. The top features don't end here as the flagship from Realme comes with a 90Hz display, which provides a butter-smooth user experience. It won't be wrong to say that Realme has gained the reputation of new flagship killer in the market with Realme X2 Pro.

    Asus 6Z

    Android v9.0 (Pie), upgradable to v10 (Q)
    Rs.27,999

    Expert comment:   Following the footsteps of the extremely successful ASUS 5Z, the 6Z with powerful internals and some unique tricks of its own. While most other flagships use either a notch or punch-hole cutout to accommodate the front camera sensor, the 6Z features a flip camera module. This means that the capable camera setup that usually sits at the rear can be used for taking detailed selfies as well. Not just this, you can also take some interesting panorama shots, thanks to the motorised camera module. The design itself is a great selling point for the ASUS 6Z.

    Expert comment:   Honor View 20 was the first handset in the market to feature a punch-hole display and it would be unfair to call this to be the only headlining feature of the phone. The smartphone comes with great hardware, consisting of a powerful processor, ample memory, and great optics. The 48MP primary camera manages to take some great shots and will help you with great detail even in some poor lighting conditions. If you are looking for an all-around performer that doesn't punch a hole in your pocket, this is a great choice.

    OnePlus 6T 8GB RAM

    Android v9.0 (Pie)
    Rs.27,999

    Expert comment:   OnePlus 6T comes as the brand's first and probably the last handset to feature a dewdrop notch display. With the great build quality and design, the handset looks every bit like a premium offering should. All of this comes with great display quality, smooth OxygenOS platform, and capable camera setup that can give some flagships a run for their money. Considering that the handset has received a discount recently, it is among the best phones that you can buy under Rs 30,000 right now.

    Expert comment:   Vivo V17 Pro has been presented by the brand as a camera-centric offering, similarly to some of the other handsets on this list, but thankfully, the brand has not cut corners in terms of overall experience offered by the handset. There is a massive battery on the phone that allows you to carry it around for clicking pictures without caring much for the charging points. You can click some really innovative pictures with both Super Macro mode and the wide-angle mode available within the camera app. Apart from this, the phone offers a smooth UI experience and an impressive display.

    Rs.25,990

    Expert comment:   Much like the rest of the OPPO Reno 2 series, the OPPO Reno 2Z is also a camera-centric phone and comes with four camera sensors at the back. Although the handset lacks the zoom capabilities offered by the OPPO Reno 2, it still manages to deliver some really impressive images for its price. The stylish mid-ranger from OPPO offers an impressive display with a vibrant panel and a bezel-less design. Decent battery capacity and support for VOOC 3.0 make OPPO Reno 2Z a good contender for the list.

    Expert comment:   Although LG G7 ThinQ might skip under the radar for many people due to its 3,000mAh battery or the fact that it does not feature an under-display fingerprint sensor like some other modern smartphones, the LG smartphone makes our list because of its great display and brilliant audio output. The handset packs a powerful processor and manages to deliver some great pictures with its capable camera setup as well. As we mentioned earlier, the G7 ThinQ is not everybody's cup of tea but there are some great features at offer here.

    Expert comment:   For those who hate charging their phones, OPPO R17 Pro is the best handset currently available in the market. With SuperVOOC charging, the handset charges in around 35 minutes and lasts for a really long time on a single charge. What's great is that you don't have to sacrifice in terms of hardware either. You get a good processor, good camera performance, and an impressive display. If you travel a lot or have a general dislike of power banks, OPPO R17 Pro might be just the phone for you.
