Xiaomi Mi A1 is the company’s first product of Android One 2.0 and it will surely get faster software updates. In terms of the design, the Mi A1 is a blind copy of iPhone 7 Plus. Not only this, even the dual camera setup at the back is similar to one sensor boasting a wide angle lens coupled with a telephoto lens for 2x optical zoom. The battery capacity might be an issue for some but the Snapdragon 625 being one of the most battery efficient chipsets out there, the Mi A1 should last you a full day comfortably. All in all, the iPhone factor actually favours the Mi A1 here and if you are looking for a premium looking and feeling device with stock Android on board, the Mi A1 is the ideal choice.

Here are the detailed specs

  • Price: Rs 14,999 | Flipkart and Mi.com
  • Display: 5.5-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels)
  • Processor: 2.0 GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon 625 | Adreno 506

Lenovo K8 Note

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 has been the long king of premium budget smartphone segment, however, if there is a device which can possibly beat it both in terms of hardware and software, it has to be the Lenovo K8 Note. Priced similar to the Redmi Note 4, the K8 Note not only boasts some impressive specifications but also offers a dual camera setup at the back and stock Android. So you get better pictures out of the Note 8 and stock Android does give us that confidence that Lenovo will push the software updates much faster this time around. The dual camera set-up here again focuses on those bokeh shots. Besides, we get a massive 4000 mAh battery inside so this device is relatively chunkier in hands at 8.5 mm weighing 180 g. Even after all the features and impressive specifications, the K8 Note is the cheapest option in today’s list. Here are the detailed specifications.

Motorola Moto G5s Plus

While stock Android might be new to Xiaomi smartphones, one company which has trusted vanilla Android ever since it went under the Android maker (Google) itself, is Motorola. Moto G is one of the most successful series of the company, tend to grab sales just after a new iteration is launched. One thing we all like about Motorola is that the fact the brand provides with a clean user interface and roll out of updates at a regular interval of time. The Moto G5s Plus, which is actually the current best seller on Amazon India, is one such device. While it shares most of the specifications with the Mi A1, it does give you a different feel in hands. Also, the dual camera set-up at the back here offers an extra bit of depth for the bokeh effect along with a couple of other modes. While it might not be a big deal, but the G5s Plus comes with a dedicated microSD card slot. To sum up, if you were about to buy the Moto G5 Plus, go for this instead.

Samsung Galaxy J7 Pro – Rs 19,990

Samsung’s Galaxy J7 Pro might shy away regarding specifications when compared to other options in the list, but, we now have a loyal group of customers who actually refuses to trust any brand over Samsung. The Galaxy J7 Pro doesn’t outperform in any area, but it is still a solid device for its price. We don’t have dual cameras here and obviously no stock Android, which has been the trend off-late. However, the Galaxy J7 Pro is for those who don’t settle for stock Android. The 13-megapixel camera at the back will definitely give you a much better overall images and the Exynos 7870 is not that bad of chipset either. Further, we do get little perks like the dedicated SD card slot and Samsung’s much appreciated after sale service. Adding to the list, the Galaxy J7 Pro runs on Android 7.0 Nougat which might be a big deal for several Samsung users.
