Smartphone With Good Camera And Processor




Hi you can go for OnePlus X   Its the best specced device with 4G under 20k. Comes with powerful s801 proessor 3GB ram 5 inch full HD AMOLED screen really good camera in this price range. good battery life with top notch build quality.


What about moto x play 


Processor on this much better than S615 in xplay. 


And what about camera moto x play is offering 21 MP camera 


MP dont mean much when it comes to cameras they just decide how big the picture will be. its the acutal senor and quality which matters thats why iphones wit 8mp used to have best cameras and easily beat 21 mp sony cameras. oneplus x camera is as good as the xplay.
