 Best Mobile Phones Under 1000 AED in UAE

Mobile phones are becoming faster and loaded with more features. This has increased our productivity and made our lives easier.  In this article, we will review the best 4 mobile phones under 1000 AED in Dubai. These phones deliver near flagship performance but don’t cost a lot.

So fortunately, you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a great performing mobile phone. The gap between flagship smartphones and mid range phones is closing down rapidly. 

Let’s review them.

Samsung Galaxy A51

If you’re after a big screen mobile, long lasting battery and lots of photography tools, but don’t want to splash a lot of cash, the Samsung Galaxy A51 might be the handset for you. The Samsung Galaxy A51 is an inexpensive mid-range smartphone that emulates features from the company’s flagship line. 

You get a large screen, a wide array of cameras, and a robust battery that makes the Galaxy A51 a good first impression when combined with an attainable price tag. The Samsung Galaxy A51 is an elegant device, with a front-dominating large screen and a rear-facing ‘Prism’ design.

Although the screen is huge at 6.5 inches, Samsung has kept the bezels quite small, which reduces the phone size down, so one-handed usage of the Galaxy A51 is easy. People with smaller hands could also consider things a bit on the big side, and in the 158.5 x 73.6 x 7.9 mm, 172 g case, you are having an amazing amount of screen real estate.

The power key and volume control are conveniently positioned on the right hand side of the device, and audiophiles would be delighted to hear that there is a standard 3.5 mm headphone jack on the A51.

You get a 32MP camera on the front-ideal for selfie generation-while four cameras are located in the large, black camera bump on the rear. The main camera is 48MP, with an ultra-wide 12MP (123 degree field-of-view) snapper, a 5MP macro sensor and a 5MP depth sensor. 

This gives the Galaxy A51 great camera versatility with the choice of wide-angle shots, accurate close-ups and blurred backgrounds. There is a 4,000mAh battery built into the Galaxy A51, which in this price category is fairly hefty.

The Samsung Galaxy A51 packs an  octa-core processor along with 6 GB of RAM.  It also comes in 4GB and 8GB RAM variants. Internal capacity is available at 64 GB or 128 GB-again, it may differ by area-with a microSD slot allowing cards up to 512 GB in size. In short, you shouldn’t have easily run out of space.

You can notice a fingerprint scanner integrated in the panel, plus facial recognition feature is also available.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro has a price tag that places it in the category of ‘budget handset,’ but many of its specs, such as the 64MP main camera, big battery and FHD+ monitor, make it feel like a good mid-ranger. The 3.5 mm headphone jack and microSD card support are both valuable improvements.

Redmi is the budget phone brand of Xiaomi, but although its phones still have impressively low prices, they do add some good features to the party and maybe the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro is the best demonstration of this.

The Redmi Note 8 Pro reflects the highest-end of the Redmi Note 8 range, but there is not that much in general in the user experience between the models. And the Note 8 Pro is still relatively cheap, despite being more sophisticated than a lot of other Redmi products.

The Redmi Note 8 Pro has a range of features that you wouldn’t find not to be inexpensive on a handset – there is a 64MP main camera with three other cameras, a big Complete HD+ display, a huge battery and a great chipset.

In the top center on the rear is a vertical camera notch, one that also contains a fingerprint sensor. There’s a separate lens on the other too. On the right side of the unit sits a volume rocker and power press, and on the left there is a USB-C connector and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

This back is made of glass, which is relatively uncommon at this price tag because most phones have rear plastic.

The Redmi Note 8 Pro is very chunky, due in part to the 6.53-inch panel, which is broken up at the top by a teardrop notch. This is a 1080 x 2340 LCD panel, which is the panel tech that we will expect in a phone of this size, and although the colors can be a little of a sub-par, the relatively high resolution partly compensates.

Although a wide display is perfect for watching video, social networking and more, it could be that the screen is too big. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro has a 64MP main camera, one of its major draws, but an ultra-wide, 2MP macro and 2MP depth sensor is also present.

When you use it in a well-lit area, the 64MP camera takes fairly decent-looking images, so if you want to take pictures of natural environments, or in some way outside, this might be a very nice device for you. The size of the pixel is quite high, but low-light photography (and night mode) takes very noisy shots.

There’s a 20MP selfie camera on the top, which is a fairly high-resolution front cam for a budget phone and we felt the pictures taken on it looked pretty fine. When you are a regular photo taker, if you are on a budget this might be a good smartphone for you.

The Redmi Note 8 Pro battery is 4,500mAh which is a decent size. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro runs Android 9 Pie currently, but it can be updated to Android 10, and Xiaomi’s MIUI 11 runs over it.

The chipset here is a strong MediaTek Helio G90T. If we didn’t improve the graphics too much, gaming seemed pretty snappy too, so if you’re a smartphone gamer this might be one of the best phones at its size.

One of the better phones at its price might be the Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro, because it can quite easily qualify as a mid-ranger in quite a few respects. The quality of the screen, the key camera specifications and the battery life are all amazing for the price.

HUAWEI Nova 7i Smartphone

The Huawei Nova 7i, introduced in other regions such as the P40 Lite, aims to draw on the pillars of its predecessors: give improved overall results without spending a fortune. The Huawei Nova 7i is oddly reminiscent of last year’s Nova 5 T in terms of design but with several slight changes. The display is also a little bigger with a front-facing 6.4-inch LTPS IPS panel of 2310 x 1080 resolution.

The smartphone’s IPS monitor will offer a good experience that allows for a large range of viewing angles. Colors can be replicated with a bit of good contrast and consistency while blacks from an IPS panel are not as dark as anticipated. In comparison, the display’s brightness is high enough for outdoor use.

The Huawei Nova 7i now comes with a shiny finish and a two-tone look. The system configuration even gets a redesign. Instead of the cameras arranged in a vertical configuration, the Nova 7i compresses the four cameras in a square setup just below with the LED spotlight. Populating the sensor boost is an ultrawide 4MP f/1.8 primary, 8MP f/2.4, 2MP f/2.4 macro, and 2MP f/2.4 photo.

As you may have found, there is no fingerprint scanner on the back which is because it was placed on the right side of the power button. The left side houses the Dual-SIM tray on the unit, which is unusual considering that most smartphones come with a triple-cut SIM tray at this price point. 

The Huawei Nova 7i runs with EMUI 10 on Android 10. Most of the features that we’ve come to anticipate from a Huawei smartphone, including multi-window mode, are available. You may also select from many settings for the interface and turn the navigation from buttons to gestures.

The camera software from Huawei Nova 7i provides all you need to use their quad cameras to the max. It’s quick to open the device and it gives you a range of modes including Picture, Video, Pro, Night, Portrait and more.

Leading the Huawei Nova 7i’s quad camera department is a 48MP f/1.8 principal sensor. Photos taken by the primary shooter are generated in detail and are well-saturated even under low light conditions. There is some disturbance in dim places but there aren’t enough to ruin the picture completely.

The Huawei Nova 7i gets its computing power from a Kirin 810 processor powered by 128 GB of expandable internal storage with 8 GB of Bandwidth. Centered on the 7 nm method of TSMC, the Kirin 810 features two large cores of Cortex-A76 that can scale up to 2,27GHz, and six tiny cores of up to 1,88GHz of Cortex-A55, whereas its GPU is a Mali-G52 MP6.

The Huawei Nova 7i has a 4,200mAh battery  charged to the bottom via a Type-C USB connection. A maximum charge is enough to sustain us with enough power during the day, to take us with modest use into the next morning.

Though it can have its downsides, thanks to its Kirin 810, decent quad camera output and a very wide frame, the smartphone still offers powerful performance.

Xiaomi Mi 9T

The Mi 9 T which is distributed outside Europe as the Redmi K20 comes with either 64 GB or 128 GB of UFS 2.0 flash storage. Xiaomi has a 6.39-inch AMOLED display on the Mi 9T. With Xiaomi going for a metal frame, a flat display and a curved glass rear, the Mi 9T looks just as luxurious as its predecessors in the Mi 9 series. The latter has a glossy finish which easily picks up fingerprints.

Thanks to the front-facing display, the app has a 3.5 mm headphone jack too, and facial authentication. A highly modified variant of Android 9.0 Apple, the Mi 9T ships with MIUI 10. The Mi 9T also follows many popular connectivity protocols, including Bluetooth 5.0 and NFC, along with audio codecs such as aptX, aptX HD, and LDAC in high quality. All essential LTE bands are provided in the Global edition. The system also utilizes up to IEEE 802.11ac, enabling it to link to Wi-Fi networks between 2,4 GHz and 5 GHz.

The Mi 9T sports three rear-facing cameras, the primary one being a 48 MP Sony IMX582 lens. The IMX582 uses a 4-in-1 pixel binning and has an aperture of f/1,75 along with a pixel depth of 1.6 μm.

The Mi 9T also has an 8 MP telephoto lens with a pixel size of 1.12 μm, an f/2.4 aperture and an ultra-wide-angle 13 MP lens with the same pixel size and length. Xiaomi has featured a front-facing sensor of 20 MP with a pixel size of 0.8 μm and an aperture of f/2.2.

Xiaomi Mi 9T Camera

The front-facing 20 MP camera does a decent job too, making strong selfies. The camera software allows bokeh effects, and along with numerous other filters, it will add beautification effects. The 20 MP sensor can even capture videos at 30 FPS in up to 1080p whereas the Sony IMX582 can fire at 30 FPS in up to 4K.

The Mi 9T has the same AMOLED 6.39-inch screen as the Mi 9, but without a notch. The monitor runs natively in a 19.5:9 aspect ratio at 2340×1080 resulting in 403 PPI pixel density.

Xiaomi fitted the Mi 9T with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC, an ARMv8-based midrange chipset consisting of two ARM Cortex-A76 cores and six ARM Cortex-A55 cores capable of clocking up to 2,2 GHz and 1,8 GHz. The SoC also brings on board a Qualcomm Adreno 618 GPU. The Adreno 618 is a professional GPU, capable of playing modern handheld AAA games even in strong graphics environments.

The Xiaomi Mi 9 T offers excellent battery power, a selfie pop-up camera, a decent display and strong efficiency. Overall, the 9T offers better than other mid range smartphones, but it’s still not any cheaper than the Mi 9.
