You can safely pick up any one of them, and put them to the test and we are sure they will pass with flying colors, so let us have alook on the list.
Xiaomi Mi Max 2: While the country is still going gaga over the Xiaomi Note 4, we think that the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 also deserves equal attention if not more. If you use your phone for multimedia use, then this shall be your best bet! 2 of the biggest highlights of this phone is the 6.44-inch display and the 5300 mAh battery. If you are someone who is addicted to YouTube, HotStar and Amazon Prime, this device will be the ideal handset for you. Also, bibliophiles will really enjoy reading books on it, since this phone is almost the size of a tab. The all-metal body provides with a premium look at the device and it is very sleek offering a good grip as well. Overall, the device looks absolutely solid and looks stunning; almost high-end. The massive 6.44-inch display has a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels, which means a density of 342ppi. It also boasts of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection. Under the hood, the Mi Max 2 is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625. Surprisingly enough, only one variant of the Xiaomi Mi Max 2 has been launched, and it features 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage. The best part is that the device runs on Android Nougat 7.1.1. The phone sports a 12-megapixel rear camera with a Sony IMX386 sensor, f/2.2 aperture, and two-tone flash. There’s also a 5-megapixel front camera with a f/2.0 aperture.

The Xiaomi Mi Max 2 is an amazing phone considering the price to performance ratio. There are barely any lag or stutters, excellent for anyone looking for awesome display and battery performance.
Sony Xperia XZ Premium: with all the hype and hoopla around iPhones and Google pixels, brands like Sony Xperia have to face the blow, even after coming up with excellent devices. The Sony Xperia XZ Premium has a 4K HDR display and Snapdragon 835 SoC and is priced above the 50k mark. The device is a treat to use, especially for those of you who love and appreciate a good camera phone. The overall look of the phone is slightly outlandish, but if you are looking for a flamboyant mobile phone with a premium look, this can be a good choice. Build quality on the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is still excellent thanks to a metal frame and Gorilla Glass 5 on the front as well as the back. The phone is also IP65/68 rated for water and dust resistance. The device has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Talking about the UI, you will not find any lags or stutters even with heavy usage. The display is really bright, eye-pleasing and the audio quality is excellent as well.

You can also record 4k videos which are excellent if you make vlogs. In totality, this device is a good competitor to the Samsung Galaxy S8. Buy this one and you will not be disappointed.
HTC U11: The HTC U11 is also one of those devices which is bogged down by the Samsung Galaxy devices as well as the Apple iPhones because of the limited marketing and hype around this device. The U11 has an amazing design, to begin with, it is sleek and light for those of you who hate a heavy mobile phone. HTC says that it has developed a new way to bond layers of glass with “highly refractive precious minerals”, which gives the material its metallic liquid look. The finish of the rear is extraordinarily shiny and reflective, giving it a premium look. Coming to the display, it is sharp and bright, just as one would expect from an HTC flagship. Also, the battery life is pretty good. This one is more of a no-fuss phone, which is powerful and the camera clicks the most amazing pictures even in low light.
The Samsung A5: Just when you thought how come a Samsung mobile phone can be underrated, considering the brand’s hold in the Indian market, we bring to you the Samsung A5. The metallic smooth design of this one, makes it look very different from all the other smartphones which Samsung has to offer. This water and dust resistance device has 3GB of RAM and a 16MP primary camera which captures surprisingly good pictures. It has a fast charger which will make your life a lot easier.
LG G6: HaVe even considered buying an LG device over the other hyped up phones in the market? Chances are you haven’t; LG makes some of the best smartphones out there but without the hype around them, the launches fizzle out in no time. The QHD screen is dust and water resistant. The 13MP camera captures excellent photos and you can actually see the depth in each of these pictures. It has a 5.7-inch 2:1 ‘FullVision’ screen with narrow borders which is great if you watch a lot of videos/movies on your phone. the LG G6 uses a slightly dated processor, but there’s very little it cannot do. The SoC has two of Qualcomm’s own Kryo cores running at 2.35GHz and two more running at 1.6GHz, plus integrated Adreno 530 graphics. You get 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The LG G6 is a very, very nice phone, the device is an all-rounder; looks nice, feels solid, runs like a dream, and takes excellent photos.
