After being crushed by Chinese companies in the smartphone market, Micromax is back again in the Indian market and this time with great specs and value for money. The IN 1b comes with a 6.52″ HD+ IPS LCD panel with a waterdrop style notch. The phone is made up of plastic and there is nothing wrong with it since this is what you will get at this budget.

As for the performance, you will get MediaTek Helio G35 SoC, which is a good processor considering the price. And if you buy the 4 GB RAM + 64 GB Storage (Android 10) variant, then you can even play some heavy games like COD Mobile or Asphalt 9 at low graphics.

But if you are a light user and want to use the phone for general stuff like calling, emailing, browsing, using social media, or any other kind of stuff then you also get 2 GB RAM + 32 GB Storage which comes with Android 10 (Go Edition).

As for the camera, Micromax IN 1b comes with a dual rear camera setup with 13 MP (f/1.9, Wide) + 2 MP (depth) and an 8 MP (f/2.0) front-facing camera. The good thing I liked about this phone is it comes with a USB Type-C charging port and has a massive 5000 mAh battery.

But I wish the phone would have come with fast charging support also, but can’t complain much given the price. Overall, Micromax IN 1b is a good smartphone and is easily one of the best non-Chinese mobile phones under 10,000 rupees in India.

Battery4000 mAh

Nokia 5.4 is the upgraded version of the Nokia 5.3. In this device, you will see a major jump in the camera performance from its predecessor. The rear camera now sports a 48 MP quad-camera setup whereas the front camera has been bumped from 8 MP to 16 MP sensor.

In terms of performance, you will not find much difference between Nokia 5.3 and 5.4. With the stock Android along with no ads & bloatware apps, the performance will always be snappy. The device will also receive 2 years of major Android OS update.

The battery performance is also good and will easily last for 1 day at least with normal usage. The only major con I see in this smartphone is the display. At Rs. 14,000 price you can not expect a 720p HD display. Even a few smartphones like Micromax IN Note 1 or Poco M3 provide Full HD display that too at Rs 11,000 around.

Though Exynos 9611 is not a bad processor but at Rs. 20K, you will find many good Snapdragon-based Chinese mobile phones which will easily outperform Galaxy M31s. So I hope this year they introduce a new mid-range powerful chipset.
