#3. The Micromax Canvas Nitro 2

Description

Micromax's Canvas Nitro 2 enters the mid-range race with an octa-core 1.4GHz processor, a 2GB DDR3 RAM, and a 2400mAh battery under the hood. It comes with a 13-megapixel Sony IMX135 CMOS rear sensor, while a 5-megapixel OV05648-G04A sub-camera sits up front. Its display is not as explosive as its name suggests, however, settling for an HD (1280 x 720) resolution on a 5-inch screen real estate, though the Gorilla Glass 3 protection gives it a slight boost. The Nitro 2 comes with a 16GB internal memory and supports up to 128GB of microSD expansion.

Description

The Microsoft Lumia 535 is a low-SAR (0.46 w/Kg) mid-range 5-incher that sports two 5-megapixel cameras -- one at the back, and a Skype-integrated one up front. Its specs are headed by Cortana, Microsoft's proprietary voice assistant, which might just fare well against Apple's Siri AI. Its internal memory caps off at 8GB, but does come with 15GB worth of free cloud storage and support for up to 128GB of space using a microSD card. This Windows 8.1 smartphone runs on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with a 1GB RAM to match.

Taking after Samsung's Galaxy Alpha flagship is the 5-inch 6.7mm thin Galaxy A5, replacing the brand's traditional plastic casing with a full metal unibody design. It sports a 13-megapixel camera at the back, with a pretty respectable 5-megapixel one on the front side. Unlike the octa-core-equipped Alpha, it runs on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor paired with a 2GB RAM -- a duo that we have seen on several other mid-level models. It offers a pretty spacious 16GB internal memory, and allows up to 64GB worth of expansion though its microSD slot.

It also touts its four digital microphones that support directional stereo recording. Finally, it comes with 32GB of storage memory, 2GB RAM, and the Storyteller app that (along with the HERE maps) arranges photos into stories.

The Galaxy Core Prime's 2000mAh battery is accompanied by the Ultra Power Saving Mode that automatically restricts unnecessary functions in order to extend battery life at low power levels -- a rather common perk among Samsung models. It also adds LTE to Samsung's usual entry-level specs set, and offers an 8GB internal memory expandable to up to 64GB using a microSD card.

It also replaces the Jelly Bean platform, running Android v4.4 KitKat out of the box. It is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and a 2100mAh battery. Memory-wise, the Plus keeps it modest with an 8GB internal memory and a 1GB RAM.
