  1. Any one plz suggest a 5 inch mobile with good battery under 12k having dual sim and expandable memory (not a hybrid sim).

  2. Happy New Year Gogibhai
    After watching many reviews of cool 1 I bet the top 5 list going to change for sure.
    All saying camera is awesome for 15k range nd cherry on cake is 4gb ram nd 4000 mh battery with solid build quality. I’m a le2 owner nd eui is not bad at all …No 1 spot of Redmi note 3 is n danger in Gogi.in site

    1. Happy New year. Am waiting to do the review, yes the listing will change all depends on the camera.

  3. Happy new year gogi g. I have a concern why you omit Samsung j7 2016 and some other recently launched model under 15k offer good value for money. Even Infocus epic in the list which you give a 3 rating.

  6. Gogi sir please give awards for the gogis’best phone , best phone people’s choice ,best value for money phone , Best performing phone etc for the year 2016.

    1. J7 prime and OnNxt r exacty same phones except internal memmory. J7 prime is avilable offline at 15800 while OnNxt is FK exclusive at 16900 appx.

    2. Bro on8 offers best value for money, but sucks in gaming. J7 series does a bit better in gaming. Audio output through loudspeaker is a bit low.

  7. Dear Gogi.. Lyf F1S is good according to specs and price It should be on list and happy new year 2017.
