The budget phone of the year is one of the most important category both for the end user as well as the manufacturers as it is this category that most of the people purchase phones in. And one of the most popular phones in this category is the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro which, as a result, has also been India’s best-selling smartphone for successive quarters. The big reasons for that is that the phone gets a simple yet elegant design which not only looks good but also has a good build quality. And then there’s the performance part of the Redmi Note 5 Pro that is impressive and makes the phone a complete package. But a new entrant into this segment has been the Nokia 6.1 Plus which marks the return of being a great value for money smartphone by Nokia that is also accessible to the masses. The Nokia 6.1 Plus gets a modern design and look premium too. But one of its biggest strong point is that the phone comes with android one software which gives it a stock OS that allows for a clean interface and quick android updates too. Moving on to the next nomination, the RealMe 2 Pro competes in this category and what it has going for it is the fact that it is the first phone in india to introduce a dew drop notch display, making it one of the best-looking phones in a budget. And, since it uses the new generation of Qualcomm processors, it enables the phone to use AI based applications extensively and it is also one of the most affordable phones in India to offer 8 GB RAM. But let’s not forget the Honor 8X which has been certified by TUV Rheinland for the comfort mode display and has an impressive 20 megapixel dual camera setup that uses artificial intelligence to offer a host of features for the user. Last but not the least, the Moto G6 makes the cut for being one of the few affordable phones in india that runs clean android OS making it a smooth phone to operate and use. It also supports dolby audio for a great media experience and has a design that is inspired by the more expensive moto X4.
