Though Redmi phones have good hardware, I won’t suggest them because they have too many advertisements.

Realme seems better or you may consider Android One phones (From Nokia etc)

bro ads are not a major issue becoz i will figure out something for it.
but main concern is decent looking device with good performance

Vivo ui is worst. I have u10. Lots of vivo app come pre-installed which can’t be deleted. The scroll down menu from status bar starts from bottom in vivo rather than top. Lots of bug in vivo also. In my vivo, if i download something, first i get very good speed but after sometime , speed reduces to 20-25 kbps. Don’t buy vivo phones

If for elder persons, ignore redmi, realme devices especially under 10k. They will hang, lagging, slow, restart all of a sudden, ear piece will go silent mode automatically so on. In these cases, we know what to do. But difficult for elder persons. For elder persons… No better option than Samsung, nokia

You should try redmi devices under 10k. Even new devices screen goes black all of a sudden after a month usage. Realme hangs like anything..

Depends on your usage, try buying a new redmi phone (any price) and just install WhatsApp and use for browsing, it won’t lag even after 6 months, obviously downloading pubg would destroy cheap phones toungueout
OP kindly mention the intensity of usage of the phone, that would help in getting better suggestions

Samsung m30(full hd) or m10s(hd only) are best option for elderly for ease of use of Samsung devices.

Better buy Realme 5 Pro at 10,750rs (HDFC) under sale offer now. Get a flip case and screen guard as well.
Got 2 Realme 3 Pro’s for family during last sale. Excellent phones even with Color OS which I hate.

Redmi and Realme both are good.
Redmi is more customisable but poor in ram management (no issues if your dad uses less than 4 apps at a time on memory) Cam reproduces Natural color.
Realme is simple without ads and has less customization. Build quality is better than redmi. Realme UI sometimes lags and receives lesser updates.Cam reproduces enhanced rich color.
Both are average on battery backup.
Now the choice is yours plus1

Realme 5 Pro comes with UFS2.1, excellent camera, and SD712. There is no match for this phone at even 13k price point. It’s truly a no-nonsense phone.

Nothing of any sort as u are claiming it is one of the biggest segment in mobile if these companies are that bad no one would be buying them instead they are the largest sellers of phones.

But asus max m series is not android one so even if it is stock android,it will not get many updates.Nokia & Mi A series is android one so updates for 2 next android versions are guaranteed.
