If we only go with what’s on paper, then 10.or E should be the fastest and powerful phone on the list. However, in the real scenario, it performs better than 10.or E and it is the best performer phone on the list.

More resolution means crisper and sharper screen? Maybe, but not all the time. While all the smartphones on the list flaunt an HD (720p) display, 10.or E offers Full HD that is 1080p screen resolution. However, it looks dull and doesn’t look like a 1080p screen. Redmi 4A comes with HD display and it feels much crisper and sharper than other smartphones, especially 10.or E.

      1. It has got a massive 4000mAh Li-Po battery which is user removable. It is one of the best battery phones under Rs. 7000.
      2. Currently with a budget of 8K, you could go for Mi Redmi 4 (16 GB) or 4A (32 GB).
