3 Quick Tips for Buying a Smartphone


1. Prioritize Need

You should consider your personal need and basic features before buying a new android smartphone.

Example: If you want a good display because you stick around your phone under lit indoor or outdoor conditions, you should invest in a good display rather than buying the most expensive phone from the list.

2. Check the RAM & Storage options

A Smartphone requires a good amount of RAM and Storage Space in order to function properly. If you don’t want your phone to lag or stutter after some time of usage, then do invest in a higher RAM and Storage Variant option.

3. Check for Processor

The processor is the whole and soul of any smartphone which can make your overall experience smooth or can give you the worst performance. So it’s important to find the best processor under your budget.

Now that you have these important key points in your mind, let's look at the top 10 smartphone in India under 13000

The key highlight (apart from a performance-based chip) is the storage.

A lot of phones don't give the option of 128GB under this price point, so its good to see Realme giving an internal storage option of 128GB which tends to be faster and more reliable than using an external SD card.

The Lake Green version should be the one if you are looking to buy this smartphone which is powered by the Mediatek P35.

This isn't the best processor out there if you also plan to do gaming, you would rather be choosing a Snapdragon or a G-series Mediatek chipset for that.

Apart from major display designs which gives a really nice look, a camera is something you should look forward in Oppo smartphones (Selfie cameras only)

Oppo has been able to optimize their smartphones in such a way that the selfies coming out from the Oppo A31 is pretty good.

Its definitely not a true tone color, but more of a highlight which tends to make your face and colors brighter and better.

Redmi 9 Prime is the latest edition in the Note 9 series.

While the company has already launched 3 other smartphones under the 20k price tag, the Redmi 9 Prime is the cheapest of all.

Being cheap doesn't mean it compromises, on the other hand, it has actually impressed us at this price point.

And Remember, this is the cheapest smartphone under this price point too. (So note that)

Powered by the G80 chipset, the smartphone has been quite responsive and gave good performance while gaming.

It's confusing from Redmi that they have launched 3 different smartphones with a gap of 1-2k price.
