Diwali sale: OnePlus 6/OnePlus 6T
OnePlus 6 is one of the best mid-range Android flagships thanks to a top-notch performance, good cameras and stylish design. In our review, we said OnePlus 6 is a no nonsense device, which does everything well and has not wasted time figuring out gimmicks. OnePlus 6 price in India starts at Rs 34,999 for 6GB RAM and 64GB storage option. The 8GB RAM+128GB ROM model was launched at a price of Rs 39,999, though it can currently be bought for Rs 34,999 under Amazon’s Diwali sale offer. Read our full review of OnePlus 6.
Those willing to wait can go for OnePlus 6T, which will make it debut in India on October 30. In terms of upgrade, the phone will get a newer in-display fingerprint sensor or Screen Unlock feature as well as a bigger 37,000mAh battery. It will sport a dewdrop notch design, compared to a rectangular notch on OnePlus 6. However, it will lack a 3.5mm headset jack. Price details are not known at this point but it can be pre-booked through Amazon by paying Rs 2,000.
Diwali sale: Huawei Nova 3
Huawei Nova 3 is a good package to consider at Rs 35,000 and the phone is available in only 8GB RAM and 128GB storage model. When one looks at the overall performance, competes closely with OnePlus 6, though on the camera front, the latter has an edge. The design stands out the most on Nova 3, especially the twilight colour that looks quite stylish. The phone has a great build quality and performance. Nova 3 has a total of four cameras – two on the front and two at the back. Read our full review of Huawei Nova 3.
Diwali sale: Vivo Nex
Vivo Nex has a pop up, motorised selfie camera, which is the USP of the device. It will cost Rs 44,990 for 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant. The phone features a 6.59-inches full display with no notch, glass body design and in-display fingerprint scanner. People looking for a clean display (without notch) and a cool motorised camera can consider Vivo Nex. It ticks all the right boxes, though size was an issue for us. In our review, we observed, the camera’s over-saturation of colours is a problem. Read our full review of Vivo Nex.
Diwali sale: LG G7+ ThinQ
LG G7+ ThinQ was launched at a price of Rs 39,990 for 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage option. The phone is among few on the market offering 2k resolution for under Rs 40,000. We liked the overall light design and compact feel of G7+ ThinQ. The performance is pretty smooth, thanks to Snapdragon 845 processor and the camera is also nice. The water and dust-resistant is also a plus. The downside would be the battery, which only lasted for 8-10 hours with minimal to moderate usage during our review period. The overall package makes it a good choice for under Rs 40,000. Read our full review of LG G7+ ThinQ.
Diwali sale: Asus Zenfone 5Z
Asus Zenfone 5Z, the first Android smartphone with Apple iPhone X-like notch, is priced starting at Rs 29,999 for 6GB RAM and 64GB storage model. The 128GB storage option is priced at Rs 32,999. The higher-end 8GB RAM and 256GB storage option costs Rs 36,999. The performance on Zenfone 5Z is great and it uses the same processor as the OnePlus 6. We also liked the premium design. However, the fingerprint scanner and camera needs improvement. Read our full review of Asus Zenfone 5Z.
