Lava is offering a free Agni 5G for everyone who returns their Realme 8s 5G
The Lava Agni 5G was launched as “the first Indian 5G smartphone” with a Taiwanese chipset back in November, and the phone has some intriguing mid-range specs, such as a quad-cam setup on the back, big 6.78” LCD with Gorilla Glass on top, and 90 Hz refresh rate.
The brand has decided to launch a one-of-a-kind deal where it will give a free Agni 5G to every customer who returns a Realme 8s 5G. That’s right - the trade-in is only for this specific Realme smartphone.
The Lava phone does have some specs that are better than this particular Realme - a bigger display and an extra 5 MP ultra-wide-angle camera. It is also bulkier and heavier and has a slight disadvantage in the fast-charging department. They have the same INR19,999 price tag in India for the 8/128 GB memory variant.
For some reason Lava thinks its Mediatek Dimensity 810 chipset is better than the chip in the Realme 8s 5G, which is also a Mediatek Dimensity 810. We can only hope it is an honest mistake and not a deliberate attempt at misleading customers, which would be pretty low for the Indian phone with a Chinese display and American protection on top.
There is a registration process, ending this Friday, January 7. Candidates must go through the three-step process to get their free Lava Agni 5G, but stocks are limited, so the deal might end soon.

I see what India is trying to do. Putting aside the conflict between India and China, India is trying to stop this trend of "much cheaper and most available smartphone comes from China". I believe a lot of country should do the same just to...

To my knowledge, India's 3 major smartphone brands have a bad reputation. So some losses in their first major entry into the low midranger market should be something they should have braced for. Either that or they should've marketed and ...
