I Live V20 Pro

OnePlus Nord continues to be an unstoppable force in this segment, but Vivo’s new V20 Pro is coming close to removing it. With a slim and light design similar to the V20, the Vivo V20 Pro features the more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, which also supports 5G. The AMOLED display is clear and offers very good brightness and color. It also supports HDR10 playback. However, Vivo runs at the standard 60Hz here and no more.

Battery life is great. The I Live V20 Pro Easier than a day on a single charge. There is a 33W fast charging so you can charge the 4,000 mAh battery very quickly. The cameras are another area where the V20 Pro charges well and aggressively competes with the OnePlus Nord. The 44 megapixel selfie camera has eye auto focus and can even shoot 4K60 fps video. There is also an ultra-wide front camera for group selfies. Rear cameras do not disappoint, except when shooting videos at night, which is good.

Overall, the Vivo V20 Pro is a strong offering and the OnePlus Nord is priced at Rs. 30,000.

OnePlus North

The OnePlus North The new budget offering from OnePlus, which can offer a comparable Android experience to OnePlus 8, but at a more affordable price. OnePlus has all the staples like AMOLED display, warp charge fast charging and large battery on the cord. However, it has made some cuts when it comes to SoC and build quality. The OnePlus Nord has glass on the back, but instead of a metal frame it is plastic.

The SoC used is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, and not the 800-series chip we used to see. However, Nord supports 5G, which is a cool bonus. As a whole package, it is very difficult to find fault with OnePlus Nord. The app and gaming performance are good, capturing good photos and videos during the day and the display supports HDR10 +.

The low-light image quality suffers a bit, but the main weakness of this phone is pretty much. Battery life is great and the single speaker is very loud. One amazing feature of the OnePlus Nord is the ability to shoot selfie videos at 4K 60fps, which even the OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro can’t.

The base variant is priced at Rs. 25,000 but there is still competition with the more expensive smartphones. If you step up to the higher RAM and storage variants, you will end up with Rs. 30,000.

Realme X3 Super Zoom

The Realme X3 Super Zoom The powerhouse of the smartphone. Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC is more than capable of handling anything thrown in its path. It has a sharp display, a large battery and a quick fingerprint sensor embedded in the power button. The highlight of this model is its telephoto camera.

The RealMe X3 Super Zoom can do 5x optical zoom and a total of 60x digital zoom, which is priced at Rs. 30,000. The rest of the cameras work well even in good light. Realme also adds a lot of night shooting modes to play with, which adds great value to night photography lovers. RealMe is similar to the Superzoom model in all respects except for the X3 cameras. The standard model can only do 20x hybrid zoom and the Super Zoom model has a 16-megapixel main selfie camera instead of the 32-megapixel. Apart from these differences, the two phones are identical.

Although we have not yet reviewed this affordable model, its remaining features and performance should be similar to what we experienced with the X3 Superzoom, so we can say that it is worth considering if you are on a tight budget.

Realme X2 Pro

The Realme X2 Pro A true flagship does exactly everything for a fraction of the price. It features a 6.5-inch Full-HD + AMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint scanner and a 90Hz refresh rate. It is well designed and feels a lot more expensive than it actually is. Realme poses on a 4,000 mAh battery, which offers excellent battery life. Not only that, this phone comes with a 50W fast charger which can top the device in 31 minutes.

It gets the flagship-grade Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ SoC and comes in three variants: 6GB RAM with 64GB storage, 8GB RAM with 128GB storage and 12GB RAM with 256GB storage. The 6GB / 64GB variant was launched at Post Launch and is now priced at Rs. 29,999. Earlier, the 8GB / 128GB variant was priced at Rs. 29,999, but after the GST hike, it was reduced to Rs. 31,999.

The RealMe X2 Pro has a quad-camera setup and can take good photos in a variety of lighting conditions. We have a problem with the low-light video quality of this device and we found that it heats up a bit when loaded.

Oppo Renault 3 Pro

Oppo Renault 3 Pro The newest smartphone on this list. It features a 6.4-inch AMOLED display as well as an in-display fingerprint scanner. Oppo has chosen the octa-core MediaTek Helio P95 SoC to power this smartphone. It has 8GB of RAM and has two storage options, 128GB and 256GB.

The Oppo Renault 3 Pro has a 4025 mAh battery and supports 30W VOOC charging. On the back, it features a quad-camera setup with a 64-megapixel primary sensor. On the front, this phone has a 2 megapixel depth sensor along with a 44 megapixel selfie shooter. We found the photo shot to be good in daytime conditions and average in low light, but there is a night mode that can help you take better shots. Low-light video recording was a little disappointing.

The battery performance on the Oppo Renault 3 Pro was good and the phone was easy for us for a day and a half before it needed to be charged.
