Amazon, Flipkart Sales – the best offers on mobile phones right now
Samsung Galaxy M30
Amazon’s Black Friday sale includes a discount on the Samsung Galaxy M30. The phone is now available at Rs. 13,990 (MRP Rs. 16,490) to Amazon’s Prime subscribers. That’s Rs. 1,000 less than its initial launch price. Amazon is also offering an exchange offer with up to Rs. 10,400 off. Samsung Galaxy M30 features a 6.4-inch full-HD+ display. It comes with a triple camera setup at the rear along with a 16-megapixel front-facing camera. Galaxy M30 features a massive 5,000mAh battery and supports fast charging.
In our review, the Galaxy M30 scored a rating of 8 on a scale of 10. We loved the phone’s crisp Super AMOLED display and the solid battery life. However, the phone doesn’t fare well when it comes to low-light photography.
Redmi Note 7S
Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 7S (3GB, 32GB) is now selling at a discounted price of Rs. 9,999 (MRP Rs. 11,999) during Flipkart’s Black Friday sale. The bundled exchange offer can help sweeten the deal by another Rs. 9,500 (maximum) discount when you swap your old phone with the purchase.
The Redmi Note 7S received a rating of 8 (out of 10) in our in-depth review earlier this year. We loved the phone’s premium design, decent battery life, and good camera performance. However, we’re not fans of spammy ads on MIUI, even though Xiaomi says it’s working on making things better. The phone doesn’t come with a fast charger either.
Nokia 6.1 Plus
The Nokia 6.1 Plus is down to Rs. 11,999 (MRP Rs. 18,499) during Amazon’s Black Friday sale in India. The bundled exchange offer promises up to Rs. 10,400 as an additional instant discount when you swap your old mobile phone with your purchase. The Nokia 6.1 Plus features a 5.8-inch display with a resolution of 1080×2280 pixels. It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 636 SoC, supported by 4GB of RAM. This particular variant comes with 64GB of onboard storage and a 3,060mAh battery.
During our tests, the Nokia 6.1 performed pretty decently. We loved the phone’s performance and its vibrant display. Android One ensures the phone doesn’t suffer from bloatware. However, the Nokia 6.1 Plus didn’t impress us with its low-light camera performance.
Realme U1 is now available at a discounted price of Rs. 8,999 (MRP Rs. 12,999) during Amazon’s Black Friday 2020 sale. The phone launched with a price tag of Rs. 11,999 in India last year, but then received a price cut which brought down the price to Rs. 9,999. Amazon is also offering an exchange offer with up to Rs. 8,050 off as an instant discount.
In our review, the Realme U1 managed to grab a rating of 8 (out of 10). The budget smartphone offers smooth performance and good looks. We liked its bright and crisp display and camera performance in daylight, but we wished it could do better under low-light conditions.
Xiaomi Mi A2
Xiaomi’s Mi A2 (4GB, 64GB) is available at a lower price of Rs. 9,999 (MRP Rs. 17,499) during Amazon’s Black Friday 2020 sale. Mi A2 comes with a 5.99-inch full-HD+ display and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, supported by 4GB of RAM. Mi A2 is Xiaomi’s second Android One-based smartphone in India. It’s worth mentioning here that the Mi A3 launch is just around the corner.
Amazon’s Black Friday sale offers a discount on the Redmi Y3 as well. Xiaomi’s budget smartphone, the Redmi Y3, is now selling at Rs. 8,999 (MRP Rs. 11,999) for a limited period. The bundled exchange offer can help take off another Rs. 8,050 (maximum) from the listed price. The Redmi Y3 features a 6.26-inch HD display with a resolution of 720×1520 pixels. You can save more money by paying with an HDFC Bank debit or credit card.
