Redmi Note 7 Pro is their latest offering which is packed with Snapdragon 675, unique gradient colors and 48 MP camera. It is offered in Neptune Blue, Space Grey, and Nebula Red. I’m a fan of Neptune blue and that gradient looks really beautiful. It is hard to believe that they are offering such good design under 15000.
Redmi Note 7 Pro is offered with a 4/6GB RAM variant along with storage options of 64/128GB. The base variant costs INR 14000 and it goes all the way up to INR 17000. It has one of the best battery life compared to any other smartphone under this list, thanks to its massive 4000mAh battery.

Realme 3 Pro is the perfect alternative to Redmi Note 7 Pro. It is packed with Snapdragon 710, unlike Snapdragon 675 on Redmi Note 7 Pro. It surely has its own advantage with a better processor and GPU when it comes to gaming.

It is packed with Snapdragon 660 and settles below Realme 3 Pro and Redmi Note 7 Pro when it comes to performance. However, it doesn’t compromise when it comes to battery. It is packed with a 5000mAh battery and lasts easily for a day or two. I played heavy games like PUBG and San Andreas without any problems.
The strongest point about this device has to be the UI, it is simple and clean for anyone to use. It also starts around INR 10000 which means it is the ideal smartphone for parents or grandparents. It also supports Qualcomm Quick Charge technology.
