Both handsets come with same hardware and there are a few spec difference also screen size – Redmi 4 is with 5 inch HD screen and Y1 is with 5.5 inch HD screen.  Battery life is even better on the Redmi 4 cause of smaller screen and a bigger battery i.e. 4100, on the Redmi Y1 there is 3080 mAh battery.

Among the Redmi 4A and the Redmi Y1 Lite you can choose any one. Both using same qualcomm Snapdragon 425 quad core processor, but 4A comes with 5 inch HD screen whereas Redmi Y1 Lite comes with 5.5 inch HD screen.  It makes sense to buy the Redmi Y1 Lite as that is the latest and also note that both 4A and Y1 Lite does not come with finger print sensor, in case you are looking for that.

5. CoolPad Cool 1

This is still a very good option priced at under Rs. 9K. The only issue buying this handset is that you will not get any further updates. So in case you are happy with that and have no issues then you can go ahead. The advantage of Cool 1 is that it comes with dual cameras on the back and they really do a awesome job, check this Cool 1 review to know more.
