  1. Hi Admin,

    Thanks for sharing this information,
    I was currently looking to buy new smartphone and I was totally confused to select better smartphone between Mi and Moto Mobiles. After reading your blog it was easy to select the best smartphone.

  2. Xiaomi Redmi Note5 Pro is my Choice when it comes to budget segment smartphones. The Price-to-Performance it offers is second to none but its flash sales are very much pathetic. Anyways You have shortlisted the best. Kudos!

  3. Irony First 3 Best Smartphones Under 15K are Out of Stock but still I will wait for RN5 Pro.

    P.S. On Serious note I loved your selection 🙂 Keep going..
