Here's the list of TOP 10 Best Mobile Phones Under 7000 in India 2019

1. Realme C2

Realme C2 is the successor of Realme C1 which was launched in 2018 in the under 7000 Rs. budget segment. The latest C2 comes in 2 variants: 2GB 16GB and 3GB 32GB. The lower variant with 2GB RAM is suited for basic users who won't use a lot of apps. The phone will lag if the user switches between multiple apps frequently. In that case, the 3GB RAM variant will offer a much better user experience.

Realme C2 comes with a nice and large 6.1-inch dewdrop notch display. The display quality is good and C2’s 19.5:9 aspect ratio and the 89.35% screen-to-body ratio provide a truly immersive visual experience. The back of the phone has a diamond cut design. The body is made of polycarbonate but the phone feels solid in hand. 

The processor inside the phone is MediaTek P22 which is an octa-core chipset running at 2GHz. The processor performance is good and with 3GB RAM it is able to load and switch between apps easily. You can also play casual games on it. This phone is not powerful to run heavy games though.

The battery inside Realme C2 is 4000 mAh and would last for 2 days with light usage. With normal use, you will get 1 to 1.5 days of backup. For increasing storage, there is a dedicated MicroSD slot available. For taking pictures, there is a 13MP+2MP dual camera on the back and 5MP camera on the front for selfies. The camera performance of rear cameras is good. The pictures are not that detailed but look decent overall.

If you have a budget of Rs. 6000 then Realme C2 is the best smartphone you can get. It looks great, has a dewdrop notch display, a big battery, and a decent chipset.

2. Infinix Smart 3 Plus

Infinix Smart 3 Plus is a budget phone from Infinix which is priced under 7000 in India. The phone is well built and looks nice as well. The display is 6.2 inches large waterdrop notch display with a screen to body ratio of 88%. The display can get very bright and has good colors. The resolution is just HD+ so it is not that sharp.

The camera on the rear is a triple camera setup of 13MP + 2MP + Low Light sensor. The triple camera is just a gimmick as the third sensor doesn't add any value so you should consider it as regular dual camera where 13MP is the color sensor and 2MP is the depth sensor. On the front, we have an 8MP selfie camera. The camera performance of the phone is not that great but not bad as well. It can take some decent pictures in outdoor conditions. Considering the price segment of this phone, there's not much to complain.

The Smart 3 Plus phone is powered by MediaTek A22 Quad Core 2.0GHz Processor which is a decent processor in this range. For storing pictures, videos, apps, and games, there is 32GB internal storage and to handle multiple apps there is 2GB of RAM which might not be sufficient if you are a heavy user. The battery is 3500 mAh and would give one day of backup with normal use.

Overall, Infinix Smart 3 Plus is a nice looking budget phone with decent performance under 7000. The 2GB RAM is a limiting factor while multitasking so if you use a lot of apps, go with a phone with at least 3GB RAM. If you are just going to use social media apps and calling then Smart 3 Plus would work fine for you.

The image does not have many details and the camera does not offer many features but this is expected from a phone with this price point. Overall the images are decent and the camera has a timer and gesture feature to click the images.

LG has provided a battery rated at 2500 mAh with this phone which can only last for one full day and you will need to charge it back. Also, LG has introduced a new feature of Ultrasonic Mosquito Away Technology, which outputs some waves to keep the mosquito away from you.
