The phone looks great and powerful on paper and was launched to compete with the top phones in this range like the Asus Zenfone 2 & Xiaomi Mi 4i well, specifications wise it does that but other companies have established a better After Sales service in India and there is no clear information about the Meizu Service centres in India as of now. We have already mailed the company and asked for the list of service centres, we will update you once we get the reply from them. Overall, we can say that if you like the phone and can take some risks you can go with it but for most users, it will be better to see how the company reacts to user complaints & after sales service demands.
9. Sony Xperia T3
Price – 14,989/-
This phone made a disastrous entry last year with a price tag of almost 27,000. Don’t know what Sony was thinking but they priced this phone much higher than their other phones which had better specs. Well the anger of people soon made them realize that a company can’t fool people. Now, the phone is priced under 15k, it’s still on the higher side when compared with the competition but these international brands will always charge a premium price. The Xperia T3 packs the usually beautiful and premium design of Sony, another thing noteworthy is that it’s just 7mm thick. It runs on the 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8228 Quad Core Processor which is decent and it also has 1 GB of RAM which makes the performance of the phone good. It sports a 5.3 inches HD screen turning out a 277 ppi pixel density so, the display is not amongst the best but is decent. The Xperia M2 has an 8 MP rear camera and like always, its good. But this phone may disappoint you if use front camera more often as it has only 1.1 MP front camera. It has a 2500 mAh battery which gives good battery backup. Overall, it has a very beautiful design and the phone can be a good buy for normal usage. At this price the Xperia M2 is also available.
10. Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo

It’s another Samsung phone in this list. Well what a comeback from Samsung, as Samsung has completely lost the grounds in this range as it hadn’t had a single good phone from over 6 months which featured consistently in the Top 5’s, now they have 2 in top 10. Talking about the S3 Neo, it is actually a very good device and another choice if you want to buy a good Samsung phone. It sports a more comfortable screen size of 4.8 inches and it has got the best display if you want a phone from a reputed international brand. It features a Super AMOLED HD display with 306 ppi pixel density. The camera and the battery life of the phone is not amongst the best but they are acceptable.
