Nothing exiting happened in the month of September 2016, there were however two handsets that were made available in September  – the Lenovo Z2 Plus and the Coolpad Note 5. There older smartphones are still on top of the chart.

The Lenovo Z2 Plus is powered by snapdragon 820 chipset, the price is really good at Rs. 17,999 for 3GB RAM/32GB ROM and Rs. 19,999 for 4GB RAM /32GB ROM. Unfortunately the camera is quite disappointing and makes the Z2 Plus unworthy in case camera is your top priority.

The next handset was the Coolpad Note 5 launched by end of September 2016. This handset price is also pretty good at Rs. 10,999. It is Snapdragon 617 powered and packed with 4GB RAM and 4010 mAh battery. It does make it a very good buy, specification wise, I have not done the review but The Coolpad Note 5 looks great specs wise.

Xiaomi Mi 5 and the Oneplus 3 are still on the top list and the best option, also not to forget the Asus Zenfone 3. Lenovo Z2 Plus could have taken the first stop had it not been for the camera quality.
