Xiaomi Mi A2

Another Xiaomi device makes it to our sub-10K list this month but it couldn’t be more different from the Redmi Note 7S. Mi A2 is an Android One device and plays a more classical look with a good old 5.99-inch narrow bezel 18:9 Full HD+ display without any notch and a metal body. It is powered by a Snapdragon 660 SoC (the only similarity with the 7S) and comes with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage in this budget. While the Mi A2 is a great all-round phone, it has a couple of notable absentees. There’s no 3.5 mm headphone jack or a microSD card slot to develop the internal storage. There is a 128 GB storage variant with 6 GB RAM available for 3K more, just in case.

When it comes to snap shooting, you have 12 MP + 20 MP dual cameras at the back that do a heavenly job in all lighting conditions. Furthermore, though the phone is over a year old, the cameras can hold their own even today. The 20 MP secondary camera helps greatly with improving its low light photography and seize excellent shots in varied lighting conditions. Long story short, you get a solid Android One device with stock Android UI, frequent OS, and security updates and competent hardware. No MIUI is a bonus.
