Xiaomi Redmi Note 5
With a sleek bezel-less design, great battery life, a crisp and vivid display, decent cameras, and stellar build quality, the Redmi Note 5 (Review) makes for a great buy in this price range. It comes with a lot of bloatware pre-installed but that is not enough to dampen its appeal.
