Hey guys,

So need suggestions on mobile phone in a budget of 50k+-. Usage will not be gaming related but mostly daily use social media apps (whatsapp/instagram/facebook etc) + browsing + a bit of camera.

Definitely the Redmi Note 9 Pro. Easily the best phone to get in this price range.

Only issue is that it's running out of stocks fast so would be best to grab it while you still can.

I would suggest to go for Mi note 10 light, can get a nominal used one for 55k advantage over Note 9 Pro is amoled screen and alot better build quality.

Redmi note 9 pro is a very good alternate same goes for Redmi note 9s that is even cheaper and the most balanced.

Thanks for the reply guys, I got the 9S . I was gonna go with 9 pro initially but when I weighed in the differences i.e. 30W fast charging and NFC, opted for 9S instead. Getting a used phone wasn't an option as it was a gift.

9s vs 9 pro major difference is 64mpx cam, rest are minor. Anyway mini review please with pros and cons.

LOL poor suggetions hell of a bad redmi note series ..... dont listen to them.. buy any old flagship they are much better poco f1 or oneplus 6 or mi8 or zenfone 5z..... i saw people buying those notes and selling them next day after watching their poop performance... u know when note 8 pro released it beats up flagship poco f1 but after 5 months and till now after miui 12 note 8 pro feels like we using samsung galaxy s2 ... no longterm use.... oneplus 6 might be best but poco in budget is beast with high end camera and processor

    Besides, VRR works best at higher refresh rates. Not as "game changing" as people think below 60fps

    don't think it will be possible at most you will get 10hz more out of it and it could cause some stability issues if the ports on the monitor are not rated for higher refresh rate
    yeah even factory supported over locks dont go higher than 20-30hz

    well, my last 1080p monitor is able to run in 1440p without any issue. I have to imagine that one might overclock too (?)

    Even intel hd can push 144hz on Windows so there is no reason to bound yourself to a 60hz panel

    its not specifically for the console, its just an replacement of the old monitor i have
    doesn't feel like an upgrade . 1440p high refresh is a significantly better investment like Goldie said

    Hardware is always getting more powerful even the 3060 ti is supposed to be able to do 2k 144hz
    benefits of iterative hardware, unlike being stuck to a specification for almost a decade

    but again i'll probably need a lot more new hardware to utilize anything > 60hz, including a new PC which I don't see happening for a long while

  • Chandoo Chandoo:
    that does make sense in a way, i guess i can keep looking at some other deals

    Better to spend a bit more to get something that will be more future proof 60hz panel in 2020 isnt viable imo

    It's a native 60hz panel which is a dealbreaker at least choose one that in addition to 4k60 can go to 120hz on 2k so you can get high refresh rate gaming
    those naturally become a lot more expensive, just looking at it because of price point.
