Phone Under 8000: The Best Mobile Phones You Can Buy Under Rs. 8,000 In India [November 2020 Edition]

first_imgSmartphones priced under Rs. 8,000 don’t usually have any particularly exciting features, but this is an important segment nonetheless. These smartphones are typically entry points into the world of Android for feature-phone users who finally want to make that transition, but are reluctant to spend a lot. While there hasn’t been a lot of change in this segment over the past few months, you should be able to find big batteries and displays in the current crop of smartphones. Cameras and processing power are still quite basic, but then again, these phones aren’t designed to be exceptional performers.The smartphones we are recommending have gone through our tests, and only the ones which have scored better than average have made it to this list. Here are some of the best smartphones you should consider under Rs. 8,000. Realme C11The Realme C11 is a good alternative to the Poco C3 as it shares many of its features. The highlight of this phone is once again a large display and long battery life. The Realme C11 is built well and looks good for a smartphone in this segment. The 5,000mAh battery delivers excellent battery life, which should let you go multiple days before needing to charge it.The Realme C11 is only available with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The low amount of RAM makes Realme’s custom skin feel sluggish. The cameras aren’t all that great either, especially if you’re shooting in low light. Just like the Poco C3, the Realme C11 lacks a fingerprint sensor, but you do get face recognition. Despite the fairly average performance, it’s still a decent buy at this price.- Advertisement – Redmi 8A Dual7Rs. 6,999 Poco C3- Advertisement – Best phones under 8,000 Phones under Rs. 8,000Gadgets 360 rating (out of 10)Price in India (as recommended) The Poco C3 is a recent entry in this segment, and while it didn’t fare too well in most of our tests, it did excel at battery life. The 5,000mAh battery in the Poco C3 managed to last around two days on average in everyday use, which is very good. It does take a long time to charge, but given the great battery life, you’ll probably need to do this every alternate day at best. The Poco C3 is also fairly slim and is built well. The display is large, even though it can be a little difficult to use under direct sunlight.The Poco C3 offers decent performance, and the good news is that the base variant, priced at Rs. 7,499, comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. There’s a 4GB variant too, with double the storage (64GB) priced at Rs. 8,999, but it’s not the best value in our opinion.The MIUI 12 software doesn’t show ads on the Poco C3 (for now) which is great news, and performance is quite acceptable given the phone’s pricing. You also get three rear cameras, which do acceptable jobs provided you give the sensors ample light. Overall, the Poco C3 is not a bad pick for someone buying their first smartphone.- Advertisement –center_img Poco C37Rs. 7,499 Redmi 8A DualXiaomi appears to have phased out the Redmi 8A, leaving the Redmi 8A Dual in its place at a starting price of Rs. 6,999. It’s identical to the Redmi 8A which we reviewed, except for a second depth sensor at the back. It’s a slightly older model but is still relevant thanks to features such as wireless FM radio and 18W fast charging through a USB Type-C port — two features that are rare in this price segment. The phone also has a 5,000mAh battery, which ensures a solid two-day battery life.Xiaomi also sells an updated model called the Redmi 9A at a starting price of Rs. 6,799 with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. We haven’t reviewed this model so it’s hard to say how much better it would be compared to the Redmi 8A Dual, but it does seem decent, going by the specifications. Keep in mind though, it lacks the USB Type-C port and fast charging, which could make some people prefer the older model.

The country’s top flight has been on hold since March 13 because of the coronavirus pandemic, with the German Football League recommending clubs should not train until April 5. Bayern, who lead the standings by four points after 25 matches, will welcome back players in limited groups from Monday. A club statement read: “The Bayern Munich first team will return to training in small groups from Monday, 6 April. This will be done in coordination with government policy and the relevant authorities. It goes without saying that all hygiene regulations will be strictly observed. “Training will take place with no members of the public present. In order to further slow the spread of the coronavirus, Bayern asks fans to continue to follow the instructions of the authorities and therefore please do not come to the Bayern training ground.” On Friday, Bayern announced that Hansi Flick would remain the manager until the end of the 2022/23 season. The German replaced Niko Kovac in November and was originally appointed for two matches. However, the following month, Flick was named coach until the end of the season. In his 21 matches in charge, Bayern have won 18 and drawn only once.Tags: Bayern MunichBundesligaGerman Football Leaguelast_img read more

Okafor’s personality, demeanor stand out both on, off court for Duke

first_img Published on February 13, 2015 at 12:50 am Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+ Jahlil Okafor’s younger relatives will text and call him, telling the 6-foot-11 freshman that they saw him on TV, in Sports Illustrated or that their friends are talking about him.For Okafor, it’s not about the NBA mock drafts that project him to go No. 1 overall, the constant praise from national media or even those hailing the 19-year-old as the best player in the country.“For me the best part is having little brothers and little cousins that look up to me and them being able to see that,” Okafor said to The Daily Orange via Duke Athletics. “It makes them happy and it makes me feel good about myself.”This season, Okafor is averaging 18 points and 9.1 rebounds, among the best numbers in the Atlantic Coast Conference, for a No. 4 Duke (21-3, 8-3 ACC) team that will visit the Carrier Dome for a matchup with Syracuse (16-8, 7-4) at 6 p.m. on Saturday. But for the freshman phenom, there’s a lot more than what’s visible on the court.Okafor’s unique experiences, which include the passing of his mother when he was 9 years old, have given him a different perspective on life, Duke associate head coach Jeff Capel said. Okafor is now not just a teenager who possesses a skill set uncanny for his age. He exudes a composure beyond his years, which not only makes him amicable off the hardwood, but an effective presence on it.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“He’s probably the happiest young person I’ve been around,” Capel said. “He’s a guy that gets fouled a lot and they’re not called. And he’s able to handle it the right way and without being demonstrative, without complaining, without being overt, he does that.”A typical morning for Okafor is just like one for any other college basketball player. He’ll wake up, go to the team’s film session and then walk to class. He joked that he’ll even text center Marshall Plumlee to make sure Plumlee doesn’t sleep through his class.Then it’s back to his room on Duke’s East Campus to hang out with suitemate and freshman point guard Tyus Jones. There’s nothing about Okafor’s routine that shows he’s the highest-touted freshman in the country.“He’s funny, he’s nice, he’s a class act,” senior walk-on Sean Kelly said. “I guess a lot of people probably just see him on the court, but off the court he’s just as good as he is on.”Kelly said that there’s no sense of secluded friend groups or cliques among the team and that Okafor’s lighthearted personality is one of the main catalysts for that.In the locker room, Okafor will crack jokes all the time, Kelly said. He added that when Okafor puts on a song that he likes, the rest of the team often says, “Oh man, I really like that.”And whenever Okafor is driving on the street and sees what he called a “beautiful“ dog, his soft side comes out and he stops just to look at the animal he said he plans on owning several of in the future.“Jahlil Okafor is a fun-loving guy,” Okafor said.Almost six minutes into Duke’s game on Monday, the Blue Devils had yet to score and trailed Florida State, 2-0. FSU’s Phil Cofer caught a swing pass just inside the 3-point arc, took one dribble and elevated to dunk right over Okafor for an and-one.It happens so rarely that Okafor took to Twitter after the game to poke fun at himself. More times than not, it’s the freshman on the other end of a dunk, often followed by a finger point to acknowledge the teammate who passed him the ball.And whether it’s the opponents he’s dunking on or his little brothers, people constantly look up to Okafor. The person he’s molded himself into has allowed him to be a 19-year-old superstar, but it’s what people don’t see that he prides himself on.“He’s able to feel things and see things from a different lens in a different way than most young people,” Capel said. “Just a really, really special and unique young man.” Commentslast_img read more
