Hi all,
I am in a tight budget of 18000rs. After 2 days of reading, comparing of mobiles available in India .. came to know Moto G60 & Redmi note 10 pro/pro max are very similar. Many Youtube comparison says MotoG60 display is not bad either. My main function and need on mobile are Reading, watching videos, getting good 4g reception(living in a rural area), battery back up and do wish to use for next 3,4 years atleast.
I can also wait till end of this month incase any better products get launched under this price range( plz do let me know if you friends know about it).
Is there any chance of getting any offers on above mentioned mobiles during this month or any time soon?

Even when MrWhoistheboss pointed out some months ago in an early "best 2021 phone" how crazy good the Poco F3 is for it's price, people still think it's one of those Chinese brand phones.
The camera use to be rated not that good but I can say that Xiaomi did a great job with the last great update of MiUI. I have no complains with the cam whatsoever. Even the nightshots turn out great.

My friend bought one and the glass on the camera broke within two days just from putting it on the table normally. Then she couldn't use it because the crack was blurring all the photos. She bought some iPhone then and she's happy. I told her even before that to buy a Samsung phone if she wants Android but she didn't listen :D.

Samin Rahman, 26 Nov 2021Ops, You Just Miss the best phone of the year Google Pixel ... moreExactly, GSMARENA has given Pixel 6 a better star score compared to Motorola Edge 20 Pro yet the best one in the list under 700 is still the Motorola phone.

I suspect this list is not generated automatically and they don't have enough time to update this manually with every phone release.

The battery life section is strange to say... Where is Moto G10, Moto G50, Sony Xperia 10 III, Redmi 9T? All these phones are from 2021 and have a much battery life than some phones on your list yet you didn't include them.
