3. Redmi Note 9 Pro

Redmi Note 9Pro is the successor of 2019’s Redmi Note 8 Pro. Redmi Note 9 Pro is superior in terms of both design and performance. But it is sad to hear that it does not offer an AMOLED display. The display is a regular 6.67-inches FHD+ IPS LCD.

Moving on, it is powered by the Snapdragon 720G SoC which is slightly better than Helio G90T. It is also the best smartphone for the game enthusiast.

Talking about the camera, It includes a quad-camera setup which is pretty common these days with 48MP of the primary sensor, 5MP macro, 2MP depth, and 8MPp ultrawide lens. There is a 16MP selfie shooter which sits inside the 1.0µm diameter punch hole.

4. OPPO F11 

OPPO F11 comes with a plastic-wrapped but appealing design that feels premium as a glass back. It is powered by an Helio P70 processor which is a capable chipset at this price range. It offers 4GB RAM which gives you smooth performance during multitasking between a number of apps without any issue. But if you are a game enthusiast, you will get smooth performance in graphics-enriched games only at low settings.

Talking about the camera, you will get an impressive image with its 48MP primary sensor but the ultra-wide lens is dearly missed in this device. 

The battery is just decent along with fast charging support but still provides a Micro USB port which is quite outdated these days.

5. VIVO S1

VIVO S1 has been successful to nail most of the aspects that we look for a mid-range phone under 30,000 in Nepal. It offers a Super AMOLED display with Full-HD resolution. The content is sharp and looks impressive on the screen.

VIVO has always been strong in terms of cameras. It is able to capture amazing images with sufficient details, a good dynamic range, and great colors. Wide-angle and Portrait images are also noteworthy.

It offers a 4500mAh battery with enduring battery life. The battery backup extends even further due to the Super AMOLED display. It is powered by an Helio P65 processor which allows you to play graphics-enriched games like PUBG in low settings.

There is some disappointment like a Micro USB port which is pretty outdated, FunTouch OS which is no fun at all and the UI on this device is a blatant copy of iPhone.

6. Horner 9X

The last phone on our list is Horner 9X. It features compromised specs and the major highlight of this smartphone is its LCD display.

The phone is powered by Kirin 710F. From this, we can easily conclude that it is clear looser in terms of performance. This phone is specially targeted at the younger demographics with its fashionable color and tantalizing design.

It has a triple camera setup at the back which consists of a 48MP primary lens, a 2MP depth sensor, and an 8MP ultrawide lens. The camera performance is just average as the depth sensor sometimes fails to detect the edge properly. But the 16MP of the front camera produces good enough selfies.

The phone comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage along with a full suite of Google applications.
