As always, we have included only those handsets in this list which have been tested by us. We didn’t include models that we haven’t reviewed in this list. For this reason, we have not made the 2 GB RAM variant of Redmi 7 a part of this list. Because we have tested the variant with 3 GB RAM. If you are willing to spend a little more then this is a great option.
Apart from the 3 GB RAM variants of Redmi 7, we have also made smartphones like Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 and Nokia 6.1 a part of this list. But these are bonus options. Because these phones sometimes sell at a slightly higher price.
….here are the best smartphones under Rs.8,000
Starting price of Rs 5,999 Realme C2 There’s also powerful hardware, good battery life, and up-to-date software. We have usually seen smartphones with weak processors and outdated software at this price point. Camera is one aspect of this phone that needs improvement but its quality is just right at this price.
Reality C2 is made of plastic. But due to the diamond cut design, it looks very premium. Even more powerful than the design is its battery life. The phone supported us for 20 hours and 29 minutes in the HD video loop test.
The absence of a fingerprint sensor and below-average camera performance are the main drawbacks of this phone. The price of Realme C2 starts at Rs 5,999. 2 GB RAM + 16 GB storage variant will be sold at this price. The price of 3 GB RAM + 32 GB storage model of the phone is Rs 7,999. We would suggest you to buy the 3GB RAM variant.
Infinix Smart 3 Plus
Infinix brand new smartphone Infinix Smart 3 Plus is a great option in the price range of Rs 8,000. The smartphone comes with a premium look. But the body is plastic.

It is the only smartphone in this price segment to come with three rear cameras. It also has a low-light sensor. Due to this setup, the camera performance of Infinix Smart 3 Plus impressed us. With only 2 GB RAM, the performance of the phone suffers a lot. Infinix is currently selling only 2 GB RAM and 32 GB storage model in India.
This is the oldest smartphone on this list. But Realme C1 Even today it is the best option in this price segment. Realme C1 comes with beautiful and bright screen. Battery life is also good. In our HD video loop test, the phone died in 20 hours 23 minutes.
Weak cameras, lack of fingerprint sensor and mediocre performance are definitely disappointing. Apart from this, 2 GB RAM limits multitasking.
Realme sells three variants of Realme C1 in the market – 2GB + 16GB, 2GB + 32GB and 3GB + 32GB. But only 2 GB models come in this budget. If you can stretch your budget a bit, then we would suggest you to buy the 3GB RAM variant.
