10. Infinix Hot 9 Play

Infinix is relatively new to the Nepalese smartphone market. The Infinix Hot 9 play is targeted towards consumers requiring a large battery. It has a massive 6000mAh battery, the biggest among our list. The phone can easily last upto two days with moderate usage. The rest of the specs are not as impressive as their battery. The phone has got large 6.82 inches but with an HD+ resolution display panel.

Interestingly, the phone has two different chipsets for different variants. The 2GB/32GB variant has MediaTek Helio A22(Quad-core, 12nm) processor, and other 3GB/32GB, 3-4/64GB variants have got MediaTek Helio A25(Octa-core, 12nm) processor. It has a dual-camera setup on the back with a 13MP primary sensor and a QVGA low light sensor. The selfie camera is an 8MP sensor. But the phone comes with micro USB 2.0 without fast charging support. So, the phone is going to take forever to charge which should be taken into consideration.

The only Vivo phone on our list is Vivo Y11(2019). The highlighting feature of the phone is its massive 5000mAh battery which should last all day easily.

4. Redmi 8a Dual

It is not so difficult to include a Redmi device in our top 5 list. The phone has everything for an entry-level smartphone. It can even outperform some of the budget phones with higher prices. The phone is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 which is a rare and premium offering from the company in the price segment. The phone has a 5000mAh battery, with 18-watt fast charging support via USB Type-C port. Adding the cherry on top, the phone comes with splash resistant (P2i Coating) which should keep minor water drops and dust away. It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 processor which is an octa-core (4×1.95 GHz Cortex-A53 & 4×1.45 GHz Cortex A53) chipset. Adreno 505 handles the graphics part for the phone.

Apart from it, the phone is excellent for most of the users.

I have personally tested Realme C3 and Redmi 9 in terms of gaming and to my surprise, Realme C3 outperformed Redmi 9. It could be a software issue or some optimization issue but Redmi 9 couldn’t keep up the 40FPS constantly in PUBG Mobile. In spite of gaming, there are a lot of other areas in which it has an edge over Realme C3.
