Better smartphone than Redmi 2 Prime ?


Date: 22 Jun 2016    Group: Computers & Smart Devices    Category: Smartphones   

I want to buy a new smartphone and my budget is 7,000Rs.
The Redmi 2 Prime seems to be good but it's performance is same as Redmi 1S which I don't like. Suggest me some smartphones that can give equal or better performance than Redmi 2 Prime whose Antutu benchmark should be higher than 24,000 Points.

A few good options could be -

1. MEIZU M2
It comes with a 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP front snapper. It may cost you a little more than your budget. Powered by a Quad – Core Mediatek 6735 processor, it has a clock speed of 1.3 GHz. Mali-T720MP2 GPU takes care of your graphic needs.
It does support 4G. The display reads 5 inch at 720 x 1280 resolution. 2GB RAM coupled with 16 GB internal storage should be good for the smoother performance. You can expand your storage capacity by another 128 GB using a microSD card. It runs on Android Lollipop with customisation by Flyme OS. Battery capaity reads 2500 mAh.

2. Lenovo A6000 Plus

Lenovo has been a name to reckon with these days. The A6000 Plus is powered by Snapdragon 410 64 Bit Quad Core Processor running at 1.2 GHz. It comes with a 2 GB RAM coupled with an internal storage capacity of 16 GB. However, the expandable storage is only upto 32 GB. Bestowed with a 5 inch display at 720 x 1280 pixels resolution, the phone is powered by a 2300 mAh battery. You get a 8 MP rear camera while the resolution of the front camera reads 2 MP. One of the best features with the device is the availability of Dolby speakers. It runs on Android Kitkat which can be upgraded to Lollipop.

The device is quite light weight and also offers faster 4G speeds. UI may be a cause for concern.

3. Xolo Era 4K

The unique selling point of Era 4K should be its massive battery capacity. It has a mammoth 4000 mAh battery that should provide you a backup of at least 2 days. It has a 5 inch display at HD resolution. You have access to 2 GB RAM, but the internal storage is limited to just 8 GB. You may expand it to another 32 GB using a microSD card. It comes with a 8 MP rear and 5 MP front camera. The processor could be a reason for concern though. It runs on Android Lollipop.

Here are the few smartphones which can serve an alternate to Red mi Prime 2

1. Swipe Elite Plus

With the specifications of Dual Sim, 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi powered by Octa Core, 1.5 GHz Processor and with 2 GB RAM, 16 GB inbuilt memory powered by a humoungous 3050 mAH Battery. With all the other features like display, camera remaining the same as Red mi Prime 2, this was is a good alternative and will be available at same price as Red mi

2. Lenovo A6000

With some huge specifications like Quad Core, 1.2 GHz Processor with 2 GB RAM, 16 GB inbuilt memory powered by 2300 mAH Battery for a 5 inches, 720 x 1280 px display with 8 MP Camera with flash. The only drawback of this mobile is that it will be running on Kitkat but Lollipop is expected soon.

3. Lenovo Vibe P1M

With Dual Sim, 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi powered by Quad Core, 1 GHz Processor with 2 GB RAM, 16 GB inbuilt memory powered by a really huge 4000 mAH Battery for a 5 inches, 720 x 1280 px display is a good one at a price tag of Rs 6,999. Dolby Speakers are threat to ears for a Smartphone at this price range .

4. Xiaomi Redmi 3

Though this mobile hasn't yet released in India but the specifications tempted me to list here. With Dual Sim, 4G, 3G, Wi-Fi enabled powered by Octa Core, 1.5 GHz Processor with 2 GB RAM, 16 GB inbuilt memory by a huge 4100 mAH Battery for a 5 inches, 720 x 1280 px display with 13 MP Camera with flash and also Memory Card Supported, upto 128 GB
running on Lollipop is a dream piece at a price tag of Rs 7,199.

My advise is to wait a little bit for Red mi 3 to release and then grab that stellar piece and you would never regret your self.
