We are living in a time that every smartphone has to present some value for its price. They justify the price tag on which they are offered.
But still, we get some phones that are a level up in terms of what they offer for the price.
You can call them bank for your buck or as the topic of this article, worth your every penny.
Today we are going to discuss about 4 of such smartphones to buy in India online that will, obviously, be the number one choice if you have that budget.
So let’s get into it.
Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1
This is one of the phone which you can’t expect from a brand like Asus, but they did it. They have provided this phone the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636.
The topping on this crust is its mammoth 5000 mAh battery. This combination of processor and battery along with the stock android proves to a great combo for power users.
The Snapdragon 636 has the custom Kryo cores which means nothing less than pure performance and with 5000 mAh battery, you can expect nothing less than 2 days with power usage.
Moreover with a large 5.99 Full HD+ display, experience nothing less than an immersive experience, for both gaming and multitasking.
The price for the 3+32 GB variant is Rs. 10,999, which is just crazy amazing.
And don’t worry for the less storage as it has proper dual SIM and dedicated microSD card slot.
The next variant of 4+64 GB is for Rs. 12,999 and 6+64 GB for Rs. 14,999.
The cameras are not the best for the price but are not that bad, if you are picky. Everything is not perfect.
For the record, it has dual rear cameras. It also has flash for both front and rear cameras.
It also has True Dual 4G VoLTE. One more thing is that it has Android 8.1 Oreo in it but there is no confirmation of Android P.
At last I would say that, this phone is for power users and multimedia consumers. The 5000mAh battery will keep you going.
This is the first recommendation for the price of Rs. 11,000.
The only competitor, in terms of performance, to the Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 ,is the Realme 1. It has the MediaTek Helio P60 which has more or less similar performance to the Snapdragon 660.
The battery, however, is 3410 mAh, but it will give a full day of usage.
The cameras are better than the Zenfone Max Pro M1, though it has a single camera. The screen is also almost the same, 6 inches full HD + panel. True Dual 4G VoLTE is also available in this phone.
The lowest end version available for the Realme 1 is the 4+64 GB variant that is available for Rs. 10,990.
Another variant is available which is for Rs. 13,990 fro 6+128 GB variant.
This phone is also pure performance and provide an immersive experience with its large display.
Having a higher GB of RAM will serve better for multitaskers but the only con is that it lacks a fingerprint scanner.
Instead, it has face unlock which works quite fast.
So if one day battery is OK for you and you can’t compromise on cameras and performance, the go for this one.
But if battery and performance are on the top of your top priority list and cameras are not that high then Asus Zenfone Max Pro is you way.
You can buy Realme 1 here on Amazon.in.

Don’t understand it as a successor to the Realme 1. It is just one of the choices offered by the company.
The price of this phone is just Rs. 8,990. Initially, Realme 1’s base model was for Rs. 8,990, for which it had the highest performance to price ratio.
But nowadays base variant of Realme 1 is not available. This place has been taken over by the Realme 2.
For the price and the competition at that price, this seems to be the most valued offering. It has the Snapdragon 450 processor with a 3+32 GB memory combination.
Realme 2 also has dual rear cameras which are on power with those of Realme 1’s.
It also has proper dual SIM and dedicated microSD card slot and Proper Dual 4G VoLTE. The battery is 4230 mAh, which will easily last for over 1 day with heavy usage.
The display is 6.2 inch HD+ display which has a modern notch design. And it does look modern. Other phones around this either doesn’t have dual 4G VoLTE or doesn’t have dual cameras.
This thing is extremely value for money and gets ahead of the competition.
This phone has taken the Industry by storm. Who could have thought that you can one day have a true flagship phone at as low as Rs. 20,999.
The base variant of Poco F1 comes for Rs. 20,999.
The phone has the king Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor with 6+64 GB memory combination. Base variant with 6GB RAM, that’s quite impressive.
The phone has a dual rear camera which is sad to the best in the price range. This has liquid cooling technology which helps while gaming and peak performance and keeps the phone cool.
No worries of the battery also as it has a 4,000 mAh battery. What a basic heavy user needs, this phone has everything. This phone has topped the ranking of performance to price ratios.
If you are a looking for a true power near that budget, look no further. It does not have NFC, which is of use in other markets like USA or UK but it is of no general use in India.
A new downgrade of the phone that has come up is that it does not support HD play back on various paid video streaming apps like Netflix, Amazon prime etc. YouTube streaming is free so no worries there.
So if you don’t use these services or can live with 540p playback (which won’t be bad), then this the deal you should not miss.
So these were the devices that I have come up for this article, being following the industry for quite some time.
Xiaomi is going to launch new devices on 6th September, let’s see if they can make to the list.
