At the Gadgets Shiksha when we rate best or excellent to a feature, function or a device, generally what we meant is among the available options, that is more advanced. Most users of Infinix Note 5 have rated its camera feature so-so or good. However, I say brilliant because my opinion is based on its comparison with other smartphones launched in six months. My first laptop was a Compaq Laptop. I paid 42000 Rupees to own it. The laptop had only 512MB RAM. That time it was the best configuration.
Infinix designed this big screen smartphone to be a perfect multimedia device. Those looking for a hard-core device to play games, Infinix Note 5 may not be the right choice.

All other features of Infinix Note 5 are customary, not pathbreaking, but they deliver. Besides excellent features and Infinix brand name on the device, large 4500-mAh battery of this multimedia smartphone attracted to me.
For a useful life of your smartphone battery, it is essential to let it charge 100% at least once a week. My primary smartphone has a 5000 mAh battery. While I need to wait close to 4 to 5 hours to charge the battery, Infinix Note 5 would be fully charged in near about two hours. That is because it comes with fast charging feature.

► Xiaomi Redmi Y2 – Best Camera Smartphone
The 10000 rs top smartphone comes in a premium plastic shell yet looks robust and appealing due to glossy finish all across. At 8.1-mm thickness, it is slim. However, it is a massive smartphone despite not having a high capacity battery. It weighs 170 grams. Further, the dual SIM smartphone supports Indian 4G LTE network that too in dual standby mode.
Massive 5.99-Inch Screen: The Xiaomi Y2 smartphone comes with a vivid, bright screen measured in 5.99-inch. That has an IPS LCD panel whose resolution is HD+ and aspect ratio 18:9. The on-screen pixel density of 269-PPI is perfect. The display is more realistic and adequate for a midrange heavy-duty smartphone.
Human eye could not recognize pixel depth above 294 PPI. Therefore, having a high pixel density in a display makes no sense, in fact, reduces battery backup.
The super sharp 5.99-inch IPS screen lets you enjoy HD videos, playing action games, and reading web contents. Everything looks crisp and clear on it.
64-bit Snapdragon Processor: The best Xiaomi smartphone under 10000 Rupees handles multitasking and hard gaming really well thanks to the highly trusted Snapdragon 625 chipset in the CPU architecture. Hundreds of midrange smartphone for reliable performance have trusted the Snapdragon processor.
→ Perfect Smartphone for Selfie
Even most smartphone experts agree to the fact that Xiaomi Redmi Y2 is the top camera smartphone below 10000 rupees. The primary shooter features dual sensor as well as dual LED flash. Thus, this phone powers you to capture production quality snap and footage not only in daylight but also at night.
Are you in search of a perfect Selfie camera smartphone? Consider Redmi Y2 as it features 16MP rated sensor on the front side, as well as AI Beautification 4.0 program. The Artificial Intelligence program filters and processes your captured Selfie in real time and generates a perfect Selfie for instant sharing with friends and family members.
Mediocre Battery: A lean 3080-mAh battery powers this Xiaomi smartphone. Having seen 4000-mAh battery on earlier smartphone models of Xiaomi, battery backup of Redmi Y2 is disappointing. On medium to heavy usages, it would provide a daylong backup. It also has a (semi)fast charging feature. Although what is interesting is that battery, charging speed is outstanding. In less two hours, battery covers 100% charging.
