► Micromax Canvas Infinity Life Dual SIM Smartphone
Generally, phones that average a price of between 5000 and 8000 Rupees in India — tend to have a large customer base. Apparently, vendors are aware of this fact and therefore deliver a whole range of devices in this price range. Resultantly, buyers in this price category get a limitless choice of devices to choose from.
We set out to look for the best budget smartphone in India under 7000, and one of the champs we found in this price range was the Micromax Canvas Infinity Life. Although other brands like Xiaomi and Lenovo promise more functionality under the same price, we felt the need to feature this smartphone out of its incomparable dependability. Here is why the Micromax Canvas Infinity Life is worth your reconsideration:
Stable core and ample storage: For a 7000 rs mobile phone in India, you expect nothing short of 16GB in internal storage. The Micromax Canvas Infinity life runs on a Quad-core 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU and has 2GB of RAM. Additionally, this device has 16GB worth of internal memory, while the manufacturer added a micro SD slot to support memory cards of up to 128GB.
Android Nougat Operating System: Moreover, being a 2018 release, this phone uses Android 7.1.2 (Nougat) OS, though the manufacturer plans to upgrade it to the latest Android 8.0 (Oreo). Android Nougat OS is well-liked for its Multi-window Support feature and user-friendliness. The whole configuration in this smartphone allows it to do pretty much anything you could do with a 7000 rs mobile phone. Nonetheless, we felt that the RAM on this device should have been bigger. Most phones in this price category have 3 GB of RAM at the very least.
Good Cameras: One of the reasons why the Canvas Infinity Life is the best mobile at 7000 rupees price is because of its cameras. This phone has a 13-megapixel primary camera with LED flash and an Auto HDR setting. This way, the phone can take high-quality HD photos and record 1080P videos at about 30 frames per second. On the other hand, the front Selfie camera runs on an 8MP lens. Remarkably, the front camera has an LED flash too. This enables you to take Selfie even in low-light conditions. Actually, for a phone in its price range, this is quite impressive.
4G VoLTE Smartphone: The Micromax Canvas Infinity life is arguably the top 4g mobile under 7000 in India. Regardless of being a dual SIM phone, it uses non-hybrid SIM slots. You can browse the Internet at fast speeds using any of these two SIM slots. 4G VoLTE allows this phone to make scramble free HD video calls without a glitch. This phone also features a Fingerprint sensor for added security and confidentiality.

► Comio S1 Lite with 32GB Internal Memory and Good Camera
The Comio smartphone comes with 32GB internal memory. After first boot, close to 24GB remains free for the end user. Besides, camera enthusiasts might love this 4G phone because of its capability to shoot HD videos even in low light. The specification that this phone packs — is making it a piece of attraction. However, is this phone capable of giving a fierce competition to the branded 4G smartphones under 7000 Rupees let us find out?
This 4G smartphone looks like any other budget smartphones. 5-inch HD screen on a budget mobile phone has become standard these days. Further, the 13MP rear camera is auto-focus. It can record HD video as well as stunning crispy images with a significant level of details. The videos shot in low lighting conditions pack much detail, thanks to the dual LED flash.
Comio S1 Lite is also a decent Selfie smartphone. The 8MP front shooter with LED flash is something we do not see in mobile phones below 7000 rs even today. Using this phone, you can make video calls even in low light and capture cute Selfie.
Performance of this stylish smartphone is so-so. A MediaTek quad-core processor with 2GB RAM powers it. You may experience a heating issue. That might be due to poor optimization of the CPU. Still, this phone is a worthy option. In fact, the Comio 4G smartphone is one of the best smartphones around 7000 Rupees as far as storage management is concerned. It also supports USB OTG.
- Ample Internal memory
- Good Camera Features
Verdict: The strongest points of this phone are its storage management and camera. Moreover, it is the latest 4G smartphone with 32GB internal memory. I am not aware of the brand Comio. Thus, I would not recommend the phone. The reason behind to cover it here is — to let you know that such phone does exist. One thing is clear though, for multimedia use, Comio S1 Lite could be a perfect smartphone below 7000 Rupees.

► Micromax Canvas Doodle 4 Phablet
Micromax is out with the fourth generation to its Canvas Doodle series the ‘Micromax Canvas Doodle 4’. With a 6 inch display the phone holds on to the USP of the Canvas Doodle series, stock Android experience, Phone cum Tablet usability all that at a budget friendly price of 7000 rupees.
Micromax has launched the Doodle series to counter Samsung’s high class phablet the Note series devices. In fact, it succeeded in positioning in low budget price band. Today’s I am one of proud owner of Doodle 3. Soon I will be upgrading to Doodle 4.
Earlier the Canvas Doodle use to be considered the flagship phone of the company, but now since Micromax has changed its tactics and launched varies series; the Canvas Doodle does not seem to be getting a priority from the brand.
Compare to the earlier version, the new doodle is better in every aspect. It has 1GB RAM, quad core processor, 3000 mAh battery and Camera with FHD recording. In fact, this is the beauty of doodle series -simple, bigger and yet the best at a pocket friendly price.
Design and Hardware: The Doodle 4 has a massive 6 inch screen, with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. But for a screen size that big the resolution is a big letdown, giving a 540×960 pixel and 184ppi, one would least expect a HD resolution.
The phone has a matte finish back panel and curved edges that help in gripping the phone better. The USB charging cable is located at the bottom while the 3.5mm headphone jack rest on the top. The volume keys and power button are located on the right side of the phone. The sides are also surrounded by thin metal plates, which give the phone a nice look and some protection.
The phone is powered by a MediaTek MT6582M, 1.3 GHz quad-core processor with a Mali-400MP2 GPU and 1GB Ram. The phone is guaranteed to offer you smooth performance. In the storage department the phone offers 8GB built in storage capacity which can be extended up to 32 GB via a microSD card. The phone also offers OTG Support.
The phone has dual SIM capabilities, but no LTE support on any SIM, which is a letdown since various Smartphones are entering the sub Rs.7000 price bracket with LTE offerings.
Camera: The phone includes an 8MP main camera with auto-focus and LED flash and a 2MP front camera. The camera does well in natural lighting, though the performance dips slightly in low light conditions. The camera can record full HD videos. The camera does a pretty decent job, but it isn’t something one would be bragging about.
Software and Battery: The phone runs the latest Android OS, Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box. The UI is fairly light and only slightly customized thus keeping you close to the feel of stock Android OS. The company has also provided a few software pre installed such as ‘Evernote’ & ‘Skitch’ to allow the user to make more use of the large screen. Along with it various Gesture setting are available which allow the user to access any app from the lock screen just by drawing a predefined gesture.
To accompany the power hungry large screen display the company has provided a fairly reasonable 3000 mAh battery, which can last up to 10h of talk time. The battery is non removable which seems to be standard among various phones these days. It will probably last you a whole day on moderate usage, including web browsing and video playbacks, which is pretty good according to us.
Final Verdict: The company created a name for itself with the earlier Doodle Series of phones, offering large screen size, but large screen sizes have become pretty common today. That being said the Micromax Canvas Doodle 4 looks really good and is priced well, but once one has a look at the spec sheet it is quiet average. There are various Smartphone’s available now, in this price bracket that can give the phone stiff competition. But if a big screen device is what you desire than the Micromax Canvas Doodle 4 is definitely worth taking a look at.

► Motorola Moto E 4G Smartphone
This 4G variant of Motorola Moto E available at an affordable price of 6999 has the latest Android operating system, dual SIM, 5MP camera and powerful battery than Redmi 2 Prime. In fact, the much awaited Android M will be first rolled out on Motorola devices along with few selected gadgets have Google blessing.
I am sure reader must be thinking – why read about a phone, which is not bigger and better than Redmi 2 Prime and Infocus M350.
The new 4G variant is a choice for those already using Moto E 3G. Human tendency lean to stability and does not permit easy changes. Choosing a new sandal design or a new gadget, grown up young and old age users always found to be reluctant to accept advancement. You must have noticed many old-age generations use Nokia phone well-in-shape because of tread wrapped up all around. And, the reason being, they are quite familiar with all buttons and option to make a call or access to message box. They do not want to refresh them-self with new features and trendy functionalities.
Certainly the Moto G 2nd gen with 4G LTE is very much in requirement for those has already got feel and taste of earlier Moto E devices.
The first advantage in Moto E is Android upgrade, which is always in line with Google’s release. This makes user experience much better. Besides, Moto E is powered by a quad core processor coupled with a 1GB RAM, Adreno 306 Graphic unit.
In comparison with Redmi Prime, both smartphones are powered by 64bit Quad core Cortex A53 Snapdragon 410 MSM 8916 Processor.
Furthermore, in terms of multitasking ability, any claim of Redmi 2 Prime being superior over Moto E is totally false. The fact is Redmi 2 Prime requires more RAM just to manage bulky and unwanted MIUI user interface, which is not a case in the Moto E.
Let’s compare both screens. The Moto E 4G sports a 4.5 inches screen with qHD display has a pixel density of 245 PPI. Whereas the Prime demands more power because of 4.7 inches HD display has high pixel density of 312 PPI. Also, Moto E features better battery in size than Redmi 2 Prime. Therefore, Moto E 4G wins battery comparison with significant margin.
In all fairness, Moto E 4G is superior phone for common man for regular usages. If you want to buy a quality smartphone keeping usability factor at top, the Moto E 4G is a choice. Read more about the 4G version of Moto E at Top 10 Android Mobile Phones Below 8000 Rupees.

Going by the current bench strength in 6000 rupees price, this phone does well in regular usages.

I am fan of lava brand because its approach for camera betterment is honest that works for users. Indeed, it has worked hard to deliver quality output from the 5MP main camera. The rear shooter gets BSI sensor support, LED flash and digital Zoom for perfect photography. Yes, we cannot undermine the 2MP front facing camera.
This Phone is one good choice for gaming and multimedia experience. We had played some popular game in low setting. The gaming experience was great, in fact quite satisfactory.
