    • HTC Desire 10 has outdated GPU and processor found in 7k range phones. Sony Xperia XA Dual (branded phone) with 8MP front, 13 MP back camera, latest Mali GPU and Mediatek P10 processor is worth the money.

    Hello Pramod, your phone reviews are quite detailed and impressive. I have a quick question based on your reviews…which one is a better buy in terms of camera performance (both rear + front) under 20K price bracket?
    Moto Xplay / Lenovo Vibe X3/ Oppo F1s ?

  9. guruprasath

    Hi sir,
    i Choosed sony xperia xa dual. But some one says, dont invest this amount for this mobile, try some chinesh brands. I am confused. Please guide me. Which is better,
    1. I choosed phone(xperia xa dual)
    2. Chinesh and other brand like Leeco, redmi, gione, asus , lenovo etc.,
    3. Is chinesh brands are trusted one?

    Note: i want the details based on their perfomance (no hanging, acceptable camara and battery) i use minimum 8 hr in internet. Please prefer best one. Thank you

    • If I were in your position, I would have bought a phone with a minimum 3000 mAh battery and 3 GB RAM. The companies you’ve mentioned are doing great business in China and India. They’ve captured the market share occupied by Samsung, Sony, HTC. If their products were of cheap quality, people wouldn’t have bought them. In other words, the brands are trustworthy.

    • A phone with USB Type C will support HDMI connectivity with a separate port/hub. Every phone has cons and pros. If you consider pros, the vibe x3 is the best phone under 20000 Rs

    Sony xperia m4 aqua dual
    Moto x play
    Samsung a5
    As I want good camera quality battery life ND durable phone bcz I have to use one phn upto 2 ND haf yr.help me

    • moto x play is a better phone among galaxy a5 and Xperia M4. As its a high-end phone, Motorola will surely roll out OTA updates whenever new version of Android has been launched. Thus, you’ll not complain of outdated OS.
