Smartphone With Balance Between Performance And Battery Life, Good Call Quality And Loudness


Budget around Rs8000 I have shortlisted Micromax canvas A1 , huawei Honor holly and lenovo a536 ... any other suggestions will be appreciated . Which one should i go for out of the three mobiles ? Iam not a heavy gamer.


Hi Sandeep, My suggestions are always inclined towards the usage of Stock Android devices and especially at such a low price range, the hardware quality is not strong enough to bear the Smartphone OS. (which is skinned with heavy ROMs). Micromax Canvas A1 Android One is the best option of all. Hence go ahead with this and buy it.
