It is a harsh truth that when it comes to buying a high-end smartphone, the majority of us will go and buy the new iPhone without even knowing its specs and features. But this is wrong, very wrong. You can’t simply go the store and spend over 50K INR on a smartphone without even looking at its spec sheet. Now you may ask that why this happens among the consumers. The reason remains simple, the market is flocked by various consumers targeting the same price segment. Today, Android is facing competition with itself. As a matter of fact, every price segment has got over 10 to 20 competitors providing almost the same configurations. No wonder, there are some gorgeous looking devices, devices with outstanding camera optics and powerhouses. However, you can’t just rely on the raw specs or their marketing terms. In this list, we tried to select some of the absolute best Android smartphones in India. Note: we are mainly focusing on the flagship segment, the best money could but. Therefore, we are excluding the awesome Oneplus 3T.
Google Pixel and Pixel XL:
Google launched both of the devices after ditching the Nexus lineup. Although the device was nothing extraordinary, there was only IP53 rating ensuring dust and water resistance. No waterproofing like the Samsung devices and comparatively both Pixel devices were overpriced. However, it rocked when it came to online services. As the device offered unlimited storage for photos and videos, thanks to Google drive. In addition, both Pixel devices were the first to feature Google Assistant. Moreover, the camera was the ultimate benchmark in mobile photography. In specs department to the phone was quite decent with plenty of RAM and onboard storage. Finally, you are also getting a good battery life with the smoothest Android experience as it came with no bloatware. They are priced at around 57,000 INR. Quite expensive, but consider it as a long time investment, as I’m pretty sure that it will last over 3 years.
