Let’s get to this

Each phone has its own pricing and the order is not much into consideration

Up to $250

At this price range the likes of Realme and Xiaomi have always provided the best in terms of processor. So it’s NO shock to expect Xiaomi topping followed by Realme and finally Moto

1.      Xiaomi Poco X3 NFC

At $246 this one of the best phones you might opt to buy.

c) Cons

  • Struggling camera
  • Sometimes erratic backlight
  • It’s quite large, a little heavy

d) Conclusion

Poco is back with another hot deal. The Poco X3 NFC comes with a couple of features you would possibly expect of a pricier Android handset, like decent gaming performance because of its Snapdragon G-series processora 120Hz screen, with excellent battery life sealing the deal. This is a great option for those on a budget. Considering it has the latest MIUI 12 with Android Q. Not a bad deal

e) Pricing

2.      Xiaomi Redmi Note 9Pro

This has always been my favorite phone have used it for a while know and honestly for $210.

I would pick it any time any day.

  • Beautiful Gorilla Glass 5 body, splash resistance
  • Large and bright LCD screen, HDR10 support
  • Outstanding battery life, fast charging
  • Top-notch performance for this class
  • Good photo and video quality for the class
  • Latest Android and MIUI
  • NFC

c.      Cons

  • Realme offers 90Hz display for the same cash
  • The uneven backlight around the notch is an eyesore

d.      Conclusion

The Redmi Note 9 Pro is a great smartphone. It has a lot to offer for a bargain price and will not disappoint its users. Realme may have a phone with a 90Hz display at this price point, the Redmi Note 9 Pro trumps it with a glass design and a larger battery. It is also part of the MIUI ecosystem, which may mean something for a lot of you.

3.      Moto G power

A cheap phone with the best battery life

i)                    Key specs

Front Camera16 MP
Battery5000 mAh
ProcessorQualcomm Snapdragon 660
Ram4 GB
Storage64GB expandable
Rear Camera16 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP
Display6.4 inches lcd

ii)                  Pros

  • The best battery life we’ve tested
  • Low price tag
  • Good performance and photos for the price

i)                    Cons

  • Screen isn’t very colorful
  • No optical zoom

i)                    Verdict

A really long-lasting phone endures for over 11 hours on our battery test. The Moto G Power blows them all away with a runtime of 16 hours and 10 minutes. It’s the best phone battery life we’ve ever seen and is really remarkable when you consider the Moto G Power costs under $250. But that’s not the only reason this Android phone made our best cheap phone list.

The Moto G Power also features a large 6.4-inch display with ful- HD resolution, pretty good performance from its Snapdragon 660 processor and a solid 64GB of storage. And while the triple rear cameras aren’t best in class, we appreciate that there’s an ultra-wide shooter on board here.

At 7 ounces, the beefy 5,000 mAh battery inside the Moto G Power certainly contributes to its weight. And the screen on this phone could be more colorful. But overall the Moto G Power more than lives up to its name.

b.      Midranger up to $350

If you don’t mind about the colors then this a good phone with some high-end specs

4.      Motorola Moto G 5G

Motorola fights for the tag ‘cheapest 5G phone’

a)      Key specs

Front Camera16 MP
Battery5000 mAh
ProcessorQualcomm Snapdragon 750G
Ram4 GB/ 6GB
Rear Camera48 MP + 2 MP + 2 MP
Display6.67 inches

b)      Pros

  • Affordable 5G
  • Feels relatively snappy to use
  • Long-lasting battery

c)      Cons

  •  Fingerprint sensor doesn’t always work
  • Cameras aren’t the best
  • Irritating Google Assistant button

d)      Verdict

The Motorola One 5G is a good all-rounder with a better chip, battery life and screen quality than many other smartphones at its price point. It also has a wider screen than its siblings. The fact that it’s also 5G-compatible makes it an even more enticing bid, as it’s the cheapest 5G phone on launch, even though, like all Moto phones, it has a fair share of irritating quirks. It’s fine, particularly as a cheap 5G phone, but it’s not game-changing.

5.      Xiaomi poco F2 pro

Phone with the best battery life in 2020

a)      Key specs

Body: 163.3 x 75.4 x 8.9 mm, 219g; Gorilla Glass 5 front and back, aluminum frame.

  • 4,700mAh battery, 33W charging
  • Cheap, yet flagship-grade phone
  • Large uninterrupted OLED screen, HDR10+
  • Snapdragon 865 chip
  • Versatile camera setup

c)      Cons

  • No microSD slot
  • Lacks water resistance

d)      Verdict

Our top choice for battery life remains the Poco F2 Pro because it is one of the most powerful smartphones and the most consistent performer when it comes to battery life.

The sequel to the iconic Pocophone has everything a flagship on the budget can pack-a fantastic HDR10+ OLED screen, notch-free, the most up-to-date Snapdragon chipset, and all kinds of cameras.

But the Poco F2 Pro goes beyond that and has one of the largest batteries that promises the ultimate gaming and/or multimedia experience in one charge.

Yeah, there are a few phones that scored better in battery life, but none of them can equal the Poco F2 Pro in, well anything, and then go and sell its amazing battery life to the Snapdragon 865 smartphone.

6.      Moto G9 Plus

a)      Key specs

Display         6.80-inch

Processor     Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G

RAM     4GB

Storage     128GB

Battery Capacity   5000mAh

OS        Android 10

b)      pros

  • 136h Endurance rating (52:57h calls, 16:20h web, 18:59h video)
  • Okay camera experience in daylight with versatile shooting modes
  • Large HDR10 screen
  • Stereo speakers
  • 30W fast charging
  • Decent mid-range chipset, NFC, 128GB storage

c)      Cons

  • If you’re not hell-bent on battery life, more value can be found elsewhere
  • The camera quality is subpar, bad ultrawide shots

d)      Verdict

Another marathon racer, the €250 Moto G9 Plus, is replacing our previous Moto G8 Power choice (about €180). It relies on a new 730G Snapdragon and provides a wide 6.81″ 1080p HDR10 LCD screen. It offers faster charging, NFC and 128GB capacity.

Its camera can have four shooters, but only one is decent-the main 64MP one. Ultra-wide shots are misleading, as are zoom snaps. The G9 Plus is not well suited for taking photos on the go, even the specs sheet indicates otherwise.

7.      Motorola Edge

i)                    Key specs

  • Display                     6.70-inch
  • Processor                Qualcomm Snapdragon 765
  • Front Camera           25MP
  • Rear Camera           64MP + 16MP + 8MP
  • RAM                        4GB
  • Storage                   128GB
  • Battery Capacity      4500mAh
  • OS                            Android 10

ii)                  Pros

Splash-proof curvy design

Large HDR10 OLED with 90Hz refresh rate

Clean Android, gaming-oriented features such as virtual trigger buttons on the edge

One of the fastest midrange chips

Versatile camera setup with dependable daylight quality

Stereo speakers, dependable battery, 3.5mm jack

iii)                 Cons

  • Not the fastest charging
  • Uninspiring low-light camera performance

iv)                 Verdict

The Motorola Edge is the top pick in this niche group. It is a luxury all-rounder, however you look at it-the curved OLED screen has a refresh rate of 90Hz and support for HDR10. The Snapdragon 765G is perfect for gaming and multimedia and won’t disappoint anybody in terms of pace and efficiency.

The Edge also provides separate cameras, but none of them stands out for its low-light quality.

But the Edge impresses with a large battery and excellent battery autonomy. Finally, the clean Android OS and lots of gaming-centric Moto upgrades are helping a lot.

8.      Oneplus 8T

a)      Key feature

  • Display            6.55-inch (1080×2400)
  • Front Camera    16MP
  • Rear Camera     48MP + 16MP + 5MP + 2MP
  • RAM                  12GB
  • Storage               256GB
  • Battery Capacity        4500mAh
  • OS                             Android 11

b)      Pros

Awesome display – 120Hz, very bright, can be quite accurate too

Great battery life, 30W Warp fast charging

High-end internals, performance-oriented thermal policies

Capable camera overall if it’s not flagship-grade

c)      Cons

No official IP rating

has no wireless charging

Most games locked to 60Hz

d)      Verdict

The new OnePlus 8T is replacing the 7T as one of the leading phones in this segment and rightly so-it has an impressive 120Hz Fluid AMOLED screen and is running on the newest Snapdragon 865 chip, but it’s not that costly at €600. Some might think it a flagship killer of sorts. Yeah, well, uh…

There are a few missing features that preclude the 8T from being a top-notch product, and that’s the official IP ranking and underwater picture quality for all snappers.

We love the powerful charger, the lightning fast charging, and the stereo speakers. And we’ve never seen a smarter smartphone OS than the Oxygenated Android 10.

OnePlus 8T is a really decent deal, and we would definitely have recommended it elsewhere if it weren’t for a not-so-good camera. But if perfect images aren’t a requirement, then you’re going to be more than satisfied with this latest 8T.

Misc: rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, ambient light sensor, Magnetometer, Barometer, Spectral and flicker sensor

b)      Pros

Pixel camera

90Hz OLED, HDR10+

Snapdragon 765G with 5G

Great battery life

Stereo speakers

On-time Android updates

c)      Cons

No tele camera, SuperZoom not equal to optical zoom

Not that fast charging

Still 8MP selfies, still no AF

d)      Verdict

This is undoubtedly the first Pixel phone that isn’t troubled by big hardware problems. But this year, it’s undergone a few shifts, and we’re also not sure if they’re for the better. The new Pixel is no longer a flagship-yes, it is IP68-rated and has a 90Hz OLED, but it features a mid-range chipset and provides very sluggish charging of 18W.

And there’s a sensor swap-instead of adding an ultra-wide camera as a third snapper, Google substituted a telephoto camera for an ultra-wide imager and retained a dual-camera setup. The producer focused on computational imaging (called Super Zoom) to make up for axing the tele gunman. And it’s a decent visual zoom, yeah, but it’s also nowhere near a true optical magnification.

The (€700) Pixel 5 is still a nice deal though-pretty it’s lightweight this year (6.0″ screen), both the primary and the ultra-wide snappers produce Pixel-grade images day and night (read excellent). Images, too are incredibly fine. We have found in our analysis that the speakers are very loud, the battery life is admirable, and we love the two-way wireless charging.

Last but not least, this Pixel, like the ones before it, will be the first to get new Android versions for years to come.

  • Great 144Hz OLED display, HDR10+, no cutouts
  • Promising battery life and blazing fast charging
  • Snapdragon 865+, 12GB or 16GB RAM, UFS3.1 storage
  • Shoulder trigger, RGB lights
  • Stereo speakers

c)      Cons

Has no official IP rating

No wireless charging

There isn’t an audio jack, nor a microSD slot


d)      Verdict

The recently launched Lenovo Legion Duel looks beyond promising. it’s a correct 144Hz OLED screen with fast touch response, the fastest chip on the market yet, many RAM and fast UFS3.1 storage, and, of course, shoulder triggers. There are not any cutouts on the screen because the selfie camera is mounted on a motorized pop-up mechanism on the side. this manner it’s also ideal for recording commentary during gaming sessions.

Lenovo claims it’s optimized the 144Hz display and shoulder triggers for 130+ games and is functioning to urge more developers on board to require full advantage of its hardware. The Duel features a complicated cooling system with two heat pipes also as Lenovo’s U-Engine dual X-axis vibration motor which promises over 100 sorts of long vibration patterns and 13 sorts of low-response ones.

The dual-camera (64 main + 16MP ultrawide) is nothing special, but it is a gaming phone, not a camera one. What’s special though is that the fast wired charging. The battery comes in at 5,000mAh and is separated into two 2,500 mAh cells. It are often recharged at 90W and a full charge is achieved in only half-hour . to try to to so you would like to connect chargers within the two USB-C ports – one on rock bottom and another on the left side and fill the 2 cells simultaneously.

The maker offers a variety of accessories for the Duel, including a dock which allows for straightforward connection to a monitor. All you need is to connect a mouse and keyboard, or a gamepad and you are able to play whatever you wish whenever you wish . The Duel is not any cheap though – it’s starting price is €1000 and you will got to spend more if you would like a number of the cool accessories. Gaming has never been cheap though, has it?
