Now, we have seen Snapdragon 778G on many smartphones and the new Snapdragon 778G+ will give the same performance, Qualcomm has just changed the name but inside, everything is the same.

By the way, just for Nothing, Qualcomm has added wireless charging support in Snapdragon 778G+ but other than that, it’s a decent processor for balance use.

In short, if you’re a gamer then it’s a straight answer, just stay away from the Nothing Phone 1 and consider the IQOO Neo 6 5G which is available at Rs 28,999 on Amazon.

Overall, for the price of Rs 32,999, the Nothing Phone (1) is worth buying but if you’re a gamer and wanted a powerful processor then you will be disappointed with this device because the Snapdragon 778+ is not made for heavy gaming, its balanced SoC for balanced kind of usage.

It’s powered by Snapdragon 888 processor which is by far the best you can get under Rs 40000 while it runs on MIUI 12.5 based on Android.

Talking about myself, I’m not a big fan of MIUI. Now, if you don’t have any problem with the software then don’t see the second smartphone, the Xiaomi 11T Pro 5G is the best you can buy for under Rs 40000 in India.

The Xiaomi 11T Pro 5G comes with 6.67-inches 120Hz 10bit AMOLED display, Snapdragon 888 processor, 5000mAh battery with 120W fast charging support, solid build quality, long-lasting battery life, and 108MP triple cameras setup.

OnePlus 10R 5G and RealMe GT Neo 3 5G are the same smartphones, in short, save Rs 2000 and consider the RealMe GT Neo 3 5G.

Keep in mind that the phone doesn’t have world-class cameras, it’s good but there is a lot to work on. For example, the front camera has some dynamic range issues while the OIS doesn’t work in [email protected] and the colors also come out a bit saturated.

Here comes the big part, the phone has a superfast 80W charging support but if you want that 150W fast charging then you have to buy the 12GB + 256GB variant which will cost you Rs 42,999 whereas, for the 80W variant, you will only need to pay Rs 36,999.

The RealMe GT Neo 3 5G comes with a 6.70-inches 10-bit 120Hz AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 2412 pixels resolution and it’s protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It also has a stereo speaker which works fine, no issues there. Its dual speakers, so can’t complain much.

Overall, for the price of Rs 36999, the RealMe GT Neo 3 5G is a good option to consider otherwise you can also take look at Xiaomi 11T Pro 5G (review) which is available at Rs 39999 and it is slightly better than RealMe GT Neo 3 5G but you will also have to pay Rs 39999 compared to Rs 36999.

If you’re looking for a gaming smartphone and you don’t want to spend all the Rs 40000 then you should consider the IQOO 9 SE 5G, the phone has everything except good cameras.

Also, the phone runs on Fun Touch which is not the best Android skin but if you like the software, this won’t be a big problem. The device has Snapdragon 888 processor which is a great thing to have at a 34k price tag.

Again, the battery life is small but IQOO has added a 66W charger in the box which will help a lot.

Overall, if you wanted to buy the best gaming phone and if the cameras are not your highest priority then do consider the IQOO 9 SE 5G. By the way, the cameras are not that bad but as this is a 34k smartphone, IQOO should have provided better cameras.


If you wanted a balanced smartphone then you won’t find a better option than Nothing Phone (1) but if you wanted to buy a smartphone for gaming then consider the IQOO 9 SE 5G.
