The Redmi K20 retains most of the features of the Redmi K20 Pro save for the processor. Instead of the Snapdragon 855, it has the Snapdragon 730 which is also pretty powerful, coming right below the performance of the flagship SoC. The camera stack is the same with the 48+8+13MP setup on the back while on the front, the pop-up module contains a 20MP shooter. The Redmi K20’s display is also the same and is also rated for HDR support.

The OnePlus 6T received the price cut after OnePlus announced the 2019 lineup of OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro. Instead of discontinuing, the phone is now selling at a cheaper price and the 8GB RAM variant with 128GB storage can be snagged for less than Rs 30,000. The OnePlus 6T is sufficiently fast with a Snapdragon 845 powering a well-optimised operating system. The 16MP camera might come across as a little weak now, but it’s no slouch while the AMOLED display on the front is pretty good for watching movies and playing games.

The Samsung Galaxy A70 offers a well-balanced mix of features that goes a long way in ensuring a smooth and stable experience. For one, Samsung’s OneUI makes a big difference in the phone. The Galaxy A70 is also pretty big and has the Infinity-U design that Samsung introduced earlier this year, and thanks to that, the bezels around the display are really slim. On the back is a triple-camera setup which includes a wide-angle lens which does take some impressive shots during the day. The phone runs on an octa-core Exynos SoC and has 6GB RAM and 128GB storage to boot. The Galaxy A70’s 4000mAh battery should be the reason to buy the phone. It will easily last you more than a day.

The Blackberry Key 2 LE won't be what everyone desires. In a lot of ways, it's quite old school. But what it does do differently is the fact that there's a physical QWERTY keyboard on the phone which is helpful if you prefer the old way of typing or you require app shortcuts at your fingertips. However, everything else is pretty mid-range and might not be up for someone looking for power packed performance.
