Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro
Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5 Pro is a worthy competitor to the Honor 9 Lite. It offers a great design and performance in an affordable package. The 18:9 display is nice but it can’t match the Honor 9 Lite’s FullView display. Redmi Note 5 Pro has two cameras on the back while Honor 9 Lite has one on the back, with the Huawei winning out by a slim margin.
It also offers better battery life (on average) than its competition at 4280mAh versus 3650mAh. If you want a phone that looks good, performs well and lasts long then this should be your choice. Buyers will have to decide if they want a taller screen or more battery life before making their purchase.
Huawei’s Honor 9N is one of the most affordable phones on this list. It has a battery that can last you two days on a single charge and it also comes with IP68 dust and water resistance, as well as a Dolby Atmos sound system.
The phone runs on the HiSilicon Kirin 710 processor, which isn’t the latest available but it should be powerful enough to run all your favourite apps. One of the highlights of this phone is its camera which uses two lenses: one RGB and one monochrome lens. This phone isn’t available in other markets yet, so you won’t find many reviews online. But if you’re looking for an affordable high-end Android smartphone then this could be the device for you!
Nokia 6.1 Plus
It has a beautiful appearance and the built quality is excellent. It’s sturdy and the buttons give tactile feedback which is great. The fingerprint sensor placement was perfect and it offers dual SIM card support. We found that the Nokia 6.1 Plus to be a competent performer with an impressive camera. However, there are certain features which are missing like – fast charging support as well as wireless charging.
The 3GB RAM coupled with 32GB of internal storage will not suffice if you want to use more than one app at the same time. If you want to expand your phone’s memory then we recommend getting a microSD card. The battery life on this phone should last for about 1 day and can stretch up to 2 days if used lightly.
Moto G6 Play
Motorola has finally launched the Moto G6 Play and is all set to take on the likes of Xiaomi and Redmi. The new smartphone offers excellent specifications and an impressive design. Plus, it also comes with a complete package at this price point.
