I was looking for nokia 6.1, which was retailing at 7k till last week.

Now its seems that, this infinix hot 8 is great choice, except few missing like Stock OS, Build qua;ity, brand, NFC and resolution,

but added are powerful battery, big screen, and triple camera.and SD slot.

any bank offer would be icing on cake.
Transmission group is already top 3rd player in india

Helio P60 is better than Helio P22. Even though battery life and Camera on Nokia devices is trash.

Buy Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1/Asus Zenfone Max M2 instead of you want stock android.
