1. Infinix Note 4 Pro
Infinix’s offering of the Note 4 Pro builds on their Note 3/ 3 Pro flagships from the previous year. The screen of the Note 4 Pro was shaved from 6 inches to a more fitting 5.7 inch and retained with full HD display which is set at a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
The nearly bezel-less device comes with an awesome 3GB of RAM that is paired with 32GB of internal storage space. Infinix understands that this might not be enough for some users so they included the option to expand the memory up to 128GB.
The fingerprint scanner on the 4G-enabled unit was moved forward, placing the biometric sensor in the home button on the front rather than creating a cut-out on the back.
Moving on from there, we should talk about the 8MP selfie snapper and the crystal clear 13MP sensor on the back. Those are followed by the Nougat 7.0 out of the box. With a promise of getting Android 8.0 Oreo this year, you don’t need to get another unit should you want to enjoy the latest desert too.
Coming with support for dual SIM technology, each Note 4 Pro unit will be powered by a massive 4500mAh battery

2. Tecno Camon CM
When the word ‘Camon’ is mentioned as related to the Tecno brand, a great camera is to be expected. True to that naming system, one of the standout features on the Camon CM is not only the 13MP rear camera with a LED flash of its own but another 13MP sensor on the front for selfie lovers. The front camera also comes with its own LED flash.
Alongside the secondary camera unit, the front is also home to a 5.7-inch screen with 1440 x 720 pixels. Under the screen is a quad-core MediaTek processor equipped with 2GB of RAM. In the storage department, the Camon CM will make do with 16GB that can be expanded up to 128GB.
A fingerprint sensor keeps the camera company on the back. Underneath the back casing is a decent 3000mAh battery to keep the lights on. Coming with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, the Camon CM has been designed to work on even 4G networks.

3. Oppo A71
Oppo A71 broke out with a sleek design that saw a front 5.2-inch glass wrapped around a premium aluminium build. Under the aluminium can be found configurations such as an octa-core 3GB RAM CPU. While we would have loved to see 32GB of internal storage, we were shocked by the rather low 16GB for this CPU configuration.
On the upside, this CPU will clock as much as 1.5GHz and the user will also be able to expand their storage to as much as 256GB with a dedicate card slot.
In the camera department, Oppo A71 excels with a 5MP selfie snapper paired with another 13MP camera on the back. The rear unit, of course, comes with its own LED flash to support capturing in low-light situations.
Android 7.1 Nougat comes with the unit. While there is no fingerprint sensor on either the front or back of this smartphone, a non-removable 3000mAh battery has been tasked with keeping the device alive.

4. Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime
Not going to be left out of the affordable midrange market is Samsung with their Galaxy J5 Prime offering.
Released in October 2016, it is little wonder why it comes with the previous Android 6 Marshmallow from that year. It makes up for this by offering a 5-inch screen with Full HD quality, a massive 2GB of RAM and an internal storage space of 256GB. The quad-core CPU on board will clock up to 1.4GHz and should the user wish to, internal space can be bumped up to 256GB.
The 4G capabilities that this device has is bettered by a fingerprint sensor on board, coupled with the impressive camera configurations – 13MP on the back and 5MP up front. To cap it all off, there’s a removable 2400mAh battery for the user to keep their device running on

5. Motorola Moto G5
Following the yearly launch series, and succeeding the Moto G4, is this Moto G5. The smartphone’s 5-inch screen is rather small (considering today’s market standards), but it sits just well with those who want great specs on a compact unit.
Talking of great specs, the Moto G5 opens the floor with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset at the helm of affairs. This chipset coordinates operation with the help of an octa-core 3GB RAM CPU that will clock at 1.4GHz.
16GB internal storage space will get the job done. Should it not, there is a dedicated card slot to push up that memory to 128GB. A front 5MP snapper is promised to come with wide angle shooting capabilities.
While it does not have a LED flash to call its own, the 13MP snapper on the back does. A metallic design ensures you enjoy a premium smartphone. Supporting dual SIMs at once, Android 7 Nougat puts a pin in the awesomeness of this device
Shipping with a fingerprint scanner for additional safety, the 2800mAh battery is promised to keep the device alive all day.

6. Nokia 5
Nokia is not joking with its comeback into the market. That is why the Nokia 5 is one of the most impressive and affordable 5.2-inch devices out there. The seamless body design is home to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 chipset married to 2GB of RAM. 16GB should be enough to keep your files for the time being, after which you are allowed to expand up to 128GB.
Checking out the front again, a fingerprint scanner is placed in the home button for added security. Looking up a little, there is a carefully placed 8MP wide angle lens. On the back is an autofocus 13MP sensor which comes with dual LED flash.
That way, you never have to complain about low light capturing anymore.
Of course, the smartphone will come with Android 7 Nougat out of the box. Not just the Nougat, but the latest version of it too (7.1.1). Even though the 3000mAh battery looked small compared to all the specs it is carrying, Nokia’s reputation with batteries makes us trust that the Nokia 5 will get the average user through the day.
