Powerful smartphones have become more affordable, and no, we aren't just talking about flagship-class models in the sub Rs. 40,000 segment. Today, we're talking about the under Rs. 8,000 segment in which you can now get good phones such as the Realme C2 (Review), Infinix Smart 3 Plus (Review), and Redmi 7 (Review). These smartphones offer decent performance and features considering their low prices. The Infinix Smart 3 Plus, for example, is one of the few phones to sport a triple camera setup with a dedicated low-light camera sensor. HMD Global seems to be eyeing a spot for itself in the sub-Rs. 8,000 segment, and has launched the Nokia 2.2 for this reason. Is this smartphone capable of pulling it off, or will it fall short?
