Moto G64

Motorola has always been known for its clean Android experience at every price point and the latest entrant the Moto G64 at INR 14,999 is an exceptional value for money. It comes with a 6.5” LCD Display, a 50MP primary camera paired with an 8MP ultrawide sensor and a 16MP Selfie Camera. No Ads, No Bloatware and a Clean Android experience make it the best at this price.

OnePlus Nord CE4

The first Nord of 2024 is a showstopper by OnePlus. It boasts the fastest charging speed among Nord devices and features a striking design and a large battery, making it stand out in its segment. Priced at INR 24,999 it is the most feature-rich smartphone at the price featuring a Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 processor, a 6.7” AMOLED panel with 120Hz refresh rate, 50MP main + 8MP ultrawide, 16MP front camera, making it the perfect all-rounder.

Moto Edge 50 Pro

Two Motorola smartphones launch in a month, and both make it to our list of ‘To Buy’. That itself is a testimony to how good both the products. The Motorola Edge 50 Pro comes with a 6.7-inch pOLED 3D curved display, an all-new Hello UI based on Android 14, powered by a Snapdragon 7 Gen 3 chipset, a triple camera setup of 50MP + 10MP + 13MP rear cameras and a massive 50MP selfie camera. Priced at INR 31,999 it’s a perfect balance between features and price.

Not To Buy

Vivo T3x 5G

Even after so much criticism and backlash, Vivo continues to load smartphones with bloatware and the list of pre-installed apps keeps getting bigger. In terms of design, the Vivo T3x looks like it has borrowed design elements from the other devices in its portfolio. It comes with a MediaTek Dimensity 7200 chipset, a 120Hz AMOLED display, and a 5000 mAh battery. Even the longevity of the device is crippled as it will only get Android updates for 2 years. At INR 20,000 we cannot recommend this device as the competition offers much more.

Realme 12x 5G

Just like the Vivo T3x 5G smartphone, the Realme 12x 5G smartphone is flooded with bloatware and an average set of cameras. The cluttered UI paired with a sub-par Dimensity 6100+ SoC onboard the phone struggles to do even the basic tasks. Even though the device offers 45W charging and Android 14 out of the box, we still can’t recommend this device.

Infinix Note 40 Pro 5G

Infinix is known for its value-for-money smartphones but again it is marred with bloatware and cluttered UI. The Note 40 Pro 5G at INR 21,999 offers a lot of good things like a 108MP camera, a 5000mAh battery with 45W fast charging, but a MediaTek Dimensity 7020 process at this price, No MicroSD card slot, lack of ultrawide camera and a UI filled with ads is what makes us not recommend this device to our readers.
