      Xiaomi Mi3

  12. Madhesh

    I just like Moto g , honor 3c in this list.
    But there are many good phones better than these like Xiaomi Mi3, Asus zenfone 5, Xolo play 6×-1000.
    These three are my suggestions who want to buy a good phone under 13k.
    Xolo play 6×-1000 is the best gaming phone right now.
    Xiaomi Mi3 is for official users.(Not good for gaming). Its just to show our classyness.
    Asus zenfone 5(recommended) is half way from gaming and style

    1. Pramod Choudhary

    1. Pramod Choudhary

      xolo is one of the top Indian brands. If i were you, i would go for Xiaomi Mi3 instead of 8X-1100 as its antutu benchmark scores are much better.
