We noticed that the MIUI software can be improved, too.
OnePlus 9 Pro
Released in March 2021, the OnePlus Pro 9 is one of the best Android phones in terms of battery life. The battery of 4500mAh is going to last all day. Compared with others, the OnePlus 9 Pro is available at an affordable price, and guess what: you need not compromise on any specs. This handset is again powered with Snapdragon 888 chipset and you can opt for fast-charging for both wired and wireless aspects.

Oppo Find X3 Pro

If you’re too concerned about the budget then Realme GT doesn’t underwhelm you. This is a powerhouse with jaw-dropping amenities provided at such an unimaginable price. What we find lucrative about this Android phone is its distinctive design. Combined with a faux leather and black streak at the back of the device, this phone is a show-stealer.
Moreover, the phone runs on a Snapdragon 888 chipset and the RAM is 8GB. The battery is of a capacity of 4500mAh. However, the cameras found on this handset are very basic. And, the software might seem glitchy.
