5. Infinix Note 5 – Rs. 8,999
This almost unknown company lowkey had the market by surprise When it launched Note 5 on Flipkart grossing a 4 star ratings. Apart from having a 18:9 ratio display and a 4,500 mAh juicebox, what else makes this phone ideal is its price.

Considering the specs, we think it is safe to say that this phone can run PUBG Mobile just fine on medium settings, which makes it a good deal at this price.
4. Xiaomi Mi A2 – Rs. 14,885
