The OnePlus 11R 5G offers users a flagship-grade processor, the same primary camera as the 11 5G, and very quick charging — all at a starting price of Rs. 39,999. The OnePlus 11R 5G has a 6.74-inch display with the same curved edges on the left and right as the 11 5G, but with slightly narrower top and bottom bezels. 

The OnePlus 11R 5G is powered by the very capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC. This processor probably won't deliver the same benchmark numbers as the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, but is still plenty powerful for most practical use cases.

The OnePlus 11R 5G will appeal to many OnePlus fans who have been waiting for something similar to the OnePlus 7T to come along — a phone with a proper flagship SoC under Rs. 40,000. If you're someone who plays a lot of demanding mobile games and require good battery life, the 11R 5G does not disappoint. The main camera is also very capable, although the rest of them leave a lot to be desired. I think what many are going to like though is the fact that the 11R 5G looks just like the more expensive 11 5G, giving it more flaunt value.

The Pixel 7 is Google’s latest flagship Pixel has an odd name given that it’s almost on par with the more expensive Pixel 7 Pro, be it design, performance or imaging quality. The Pixel 7 has the same core specifications as the Pixel 7 Pro, which includes the new Tensor G2 processor and the same primary and selfie cameras. 

Google has gone with minor changes to the phone’s design when compared to its predecessor, but the Pixel 7 gets a slightly different matte-finished frame and camera module instead of the polished finish of the Pixel 7 Pro.

Software performance is top-notch and the same can be said about its camera performance which lacks the newer macro capability on the ultra-wide camera and the 5X telephoto zoom camera from the Pixel 7 Pro.

Battery life is quite good with the phone easily lasting a day and half with casual use which also includes some gaming and camera usage. However, wired charging speeds are relatively slow.

The Oppo Reno 11 Pro offers a slim and rounded design which appears quite premium despite being made out of polycarbonate and glass. However it lacks an official IP rating of any sort and still does not offer a stereo speaker setup.

The new Dimensity processor is powerful enough for handling regular smartphone tasks and can even handle heavy 3D games. Oppo offers the latest Android 14 software out of the box but it packs in plenty of bloatware and double apps.

The phone offers a very flexible camera setup among which its primary camera offers the best imaging performance followed by the telephoto camera which is good for snapping portraits. Its ultra-wide camera is quite weak and the same can be said about the phone’s video performance in general.

Battery life is quite solid for a slim design-focussed smartphone but charging is very quick.

The Google Pixel 7a comes with several upgrades over its predecessor. Most of these upgrades and features make more sense thanks to the Tensor G2 SoC, which is also found in its premium flagships.

Its design, while using the same materials as before, appears a lot more premium even though quality has taken a bit of a hit. The phone also offers an IP67 rating.

The Pixel 7a gets a high refresh rate display which makes the Android 13 interface appear fluid. The phone offers the usual three years of software updates and five years of security updates, which is good to have.

Camera performance, while improved over the previous model, is also quite solid. The new chipset also brings some additional camera features like Long Exposure mode and a faster Night Sight mode. Battery life isn’t the best but you do get wireless charging.
