5. Xiaomi Mi Max 2
This phablet from Xiaomi scores poorly in the camera department and it almost didn’t make it to our list. But apart from this one drawback, it has a lot of features that can make it on this list. And its biggest attractive feature is that its battery life is very long. Despite the big screen, mi max 2 (Review) Good to look at and comfortable to hold.

The phone has 12 megapixel rear and 5 megapixel front cameras with a massive 5300 mAh battery.
6. Moto G5S
moto g5s ,review) The smartphone is a smaller variant of the G5S Plus and the name suggests the same. It’s a good all-rounder, but just like the Mi Max 2, it struggles in the camera department. If camera is your priority then the G5S Plus is a better option. If you are looking for a phone that has a good build and is comfortable to hold, then the Moto G5S is a better option.
The 5.2-inch display size is decent and packs a 1.4GHz processor, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. The 3000mAh battery is not huge but it does well due to the small screen size. Along with this, we also liked the design of the phone very much.
