Amazon and Flipkart are running their first big sales since the coronavirus pandemic started. Amazon's Prime Day 2020 sale is in its last 12 hours while Flipkart's Big Saving Days sale will be open until August 10. However, some of the biggest offers during these sales tend to get sold out within the first two days itself. We've handpicked some of the best deals and offers on mobile phones that are available on both Amazon and Flipkart. Flipkart's sale is open to everyone, but you'll need a Prime membership to shop during Prime Day 2020 sale.
Both Amazon and Flipkart are offering a number of interesting bundled exchange and payment offers with most of their mobile phones. These can help you avail a better overall deal on your favourite mobile phones.
OnePlus 7T is being sold at a discounted price of Rs. 35,999 (MRP Rs. 39,999) on Amazon during the Prime Day 2020 sale. The bundled exchange offer can help you get another discount of up to Rs. 15,600 on your purchase. Amazon is also offering no-cost EMI payment options with select payment cards along with cashback.
When we reviewed the OnePlus 7T last year, we gave it a rating of 9 (out of 10). We loved its excellent performance, display, and good battery life. However, the lack of water or dust resistance is a downside.
Price: Rs. 35,999 (MRP Rs. 39,999)
OnePlus 7T Pro
The OnePlus 7T Pro is available at a discounted price of Rs. 43,999 (MRP Rs. 53,999) for the 8GB RAM, 256GB storage variant during the Amazon Prime Day 2020 sale. The bundled exchange offer can help take off another Rs. 16,600 (maximum) from the discounted price.
In our review, the OnePlus 7T Pro also managed a score of 9 out of 10. We loved the phone's premium build quality and the immersive display. But it's slightly heavier and also lacks wireless charging.
Price: Rs. 43,999 (MRP Rs. 53,999)
Oppo Reno 4 Pro
While you won't receive a flat discount since Oppo Reno 4 Pro is still fairly a new phone, Amazon is still offering Rs. 3,000 cashback via Amazon Pay if you pay for your order online. This means, you can buy the Oppo Reno 4 Pro at an effective price of Rs. 31,990 (regular selling price Rs. 34,990). You can exchange your old smartphone and get up to Rs. 14,600 as an additional instant discount.

We reviewed the Redmi K20 Pro a little over a year ago, and rewarded it a rating of 9 out of 10. We loved the phone's excellent performance and good battery life. However, we didn't quite like the slow front camera pop-up mechanism.

Flipkart's sale is offering an exchange value of up to Rs. 13,450 with the iPhone SE (2020). The phone is powered by Apple's A13 Bionic chip and comes with a 4.7-inch Retina HD display.
We reviewed the iPhone SE 2020 earlier this year. The 'affordable' new iPhone model managed a rating of 7 out of 10 in our review. We liked its slim and light form factor, but we still think it's a bit expensive and comes with an average battery life.
