If you have shopped for the less-important things and still have spare cash, then we are here to help you put the money to good use. Instead of buying crackers, here’s a list of smartphones you can waste every penny you are left with, without being held accountable for ruining the environment. And yes, the list is strictly for those who ‘don’t settle’ for anything priced lower than Rs 50,000. Also Read - Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8 users facing GPS issues

One of the hottest smartphones this year, Samsung Galaxy S8 is priced at Rs 53,900. If you like a bigger display, and a fatter bill, then you could go for the Galaxy S8+, which is priced at Rs 58,900. Other than the display and battery capacity, both models have identical features. There’s Exynos 8895 SoC under the hood with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. For optics, there’s a single 12-megapixel camera at the back, and an 8-megapixel camera up front.

Apple iPhone 8 Plus

If only the iPhone X was available now, we would have placed it at the top spot in this list. Until then, you could consider the iPhone 8 Plus, and make it your ‘purchase of the year‘. It is priced at Rs 73,000 for the 64GB base model. The 256GB model costs Rs 86,000. One of the talking points of the new set of iPhones is glass sandwich design from the past.

Sony XZ Premium

Sony has a history of building premium phones, which mostly fall out of an average consumer’s budget. However, since we are talking strictly about splurging here, the Sony Xperia XZ Premium is a decent fit. Priced at Rs 59,990, it is one of the first smartphones to launch in India running Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC under the hood, and also the world’s first to boast a 4K HDR display. Not only you get an enchanting display, but you also get top-end specifications bundled at the given price. And yes, there’s dual-SIM support as well via hybrid slot.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8

The Galaxy Note 7 was a disaster in every sense of the word, but the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is a design and engineering marvel. Priced at Rs 67,900, the phablet boasts a 6.3-inch Infinity Display (read edge-to-edge), 6GB of RAM, and an improved S Pen with Live Message feature. Essentially, you get to doodle your time away. For the frills, the Galaxy Note 8 is the company’s first smartphone to feature dual cameras. There’s a pair of 12-megapixel wide-angle and telephoto lens at the back, and there’s support for dual OIS. ALSO READ: Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review: The beast unleashed!

Apple iPhone 7 Plus

The last but not the least when it comes to pricing, you could consider purchasing the Apple iPhone 7 Plus to quiet the itch for a ‘premium phone’. Priced at Rs 55,999 for the 32GB model and Rs 71,900 for the 128GB model, the iPhone 7 Plus is the company’s first dual-camera phone. Despite being a ‘Plus’ model, it features a fairly manageable 5.5-inch display size and includes a pair of 12-megapixel wide-angle and telephoto cameras at the back. It is also one of the first phones to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack, so don’t think of using the older, and cheaper earphones. You could increase the expense by adding a pair of AirPods which will cost and additional Rs 10,999. RELATED: Apple AirPods Review
