Please suggest a not so expensive Android phone that’s faster than redmi note 5 pro smile

Might sound weird but my loyal redmi note 5 pro started giving muffled sound from earpiece, if I am not wrong a little bit of juice spilled over the earpiece and problem started ever since then. I am quite happy with the device otherwise.

I am getting around 5k from cashify for the device so plan to invest just a bit more and get some other phone. Can someone please suggest a budget android phone that’s faster than a redmi note 5 pro?

How are redmi 9 prime, poco m3 and redmi 9 power? All seem to be in similar price. Which one is the best amongst the 3 or any other good phone please.

This will be used as a secondary phone so don’t want to spend much either, the cheaper the better.

Thanks in advance.

If possible around 10k else can extend up to 15k at max.

Usage is basic. Whatsapp, email, skype, calls etc.

Man same thing I need to replace mum’s asus zenshite m1 phone or whatever. Bloody thing is slower than a cow-cart and now the battery backup has depleted so much that SoT is less than 3 hours! Should have bought the Moto G9 as for that the Asus was showing 4250 exchange value.

Poco M2 Pro is an option at 12k, Poco X3 at 14499.

I was going to suggest Realme 6 but they have increased the price.

I am quite inclined towards either the redmi 9 prime at 10k or poco X3 at 14.5k. As it’s a spare phone I hardly use for 2 or 3 weeks each year I wan’t to spend as less as possible but at the same time want something that works at least a bit better than my old redmi note 5 pro.

As I am out of touch with phone launches lately I am looking for some suggestions.

Micromax in note 1 and poco m2 pro are good devices but slightly more than 10k
Below 10k poco M3 is good

Yes the Moto G9, or the Samsung M02, basically whichever gives better exchange value for the Asus.

Redmi 9 prime is same as poco m2 and poco m2 doesn’t have ads. M2 is better than 9 prime.Camera is bad in both so M3 might be better than them also M3 has Snapdragon chipset
X3 is bit bulky

The only problem for me with M3 is the back design, too much of an attention grabber to be used in an office environment.

Micromax is coming with a phone
Probably an upgrade to in note 1
Launch maybe in Feb or March

Also Moto is coming with some phones in Feb
Some budget phones and probably even Moto edge s

Lava may launch phone but not sure
Nokia is saying they will launch affordable 5g phones but no idea when

Apart from these there is Xiaomi,Realme and all. If you can install any stock like custom roms then you can look for that as well

If you can use any cover with just opening for cameras then it wouldn’t be a problem

Bhai cashify won’t give you 5000. But you can try to sell it.

I have had good experience with cashify in the past. If I indicated device details accurately to get a quote they paid the same without any issue.
