The ZenFone 2 Laser departs from tradition to use Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets. The cheaper variant (that we tested) uses a Snapdragon 410 SoC with 2GB of RAM, while the more expensive variant uses a Snapdragon 615 chipset with 3GB of RAM. The Laser is a bit expensive for a Snapdragon 410-powered device (considering you can get a Snapdragon 615-powered Yureka Plus for less), but this can be justified to some extent by the laser autofocus system that is the signature feature here.

The rest of the specifications are identical in both devices: 16GB internal storage, 13-megapixel primary camera, 5-megapixel secondary camera, up to 128GB expandable storage support, and a 3000mAh battery. Refreshingly for a budget device, both SIM slots are 4G capable.

4. Xiaomi Redmi 3 @ RM470
