1. Samsung Galaxy M31s

Top best mobiles under 1000 QAR to buy in Qatar

Samsung launched the Galaxy M31s at QAR 960, and thought there have been some fluctations, it's still available for this price. Samsung has a habit of tweaking prices, so by the time you read this article, we wouldn't be surprised if the price has changed.

We think the Galaxy M31s a decent update to the Galaxy M31. It has a higher starting price, but for this extra money you get an Infinity-O AMOLED display, a higher capacity bundled charger, and a slightly tweaked design. It retains many of the things that made the Galaxy M31 great, such as the large 6,000mAh battery, but also carries forward some negatives such as the dated SoC. That's not to say that the phone can't handle Android well, but compared to what the competition offers at around this price, the processor definitely feels weak.

2. Realme 7 Pro

Top best mobiles under 1000 QAR to buy in Qatar

The more premium model in Realme's 7-series, the Realme 7 Pro features some big upgrades over the Realme 6 Pro such as an AMOLED or high-refresh-rate display, 65W fast charging, and stereo speakers. With a starting price of QAR 999, this model does have a unique mix of features that few others can match in this segment. 65W charging works well, and the stereo speakers make content sound more immersive. The new phone is also slimmer and lighter compared to the 6 Pro, which is a nice bonus.

However, you don't get a 90Hz display which is a little disappointing. The 7 Pro also has the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC as the 6 Pro, so there's no real performance gain either. The primary rear camera has improved a bit, but once again, you lose out on the ultra wide-angle selfie camera and the rear telephoto camera of the 6 Pro.

While there's no doubt that the Realme 7 Pro is a good phone, it does take a step backwards in some areas, which is why the Realme 6 Pro is also still a viable option in this segment.

3. Redmi Note 9 Pro Max

Top best mobiles under 1000 QAR to buy in Qatar

The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max was launched starting under QAR 899, but a GST hike caused prices to go up. The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max shares a lot of hardware with the Redmi Note 9 Pro – both phones sport 6.67-inch displays which are good for video watching but not for single-handed use.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner that lets you unlock it quickly. Sticking to current trends, the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max has four rear cameras but the module protrudes quite a bit. The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC. Xiaomi offers it in three variants: the base variant has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage and is priced at QAR 840; the middle one offers 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage and is priced at QAR 914. The top variant is priced at QAR 988 which is barely under the upper limit for this list.

The Redmi Note 9 Pro Max packs in a 5,020mAh battery and delivers very good battery life. Xiaomi bundles a 33W charger in the box. The camera performance of the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max is quite good, but photos tend to be oversharpened at times. Low-light camera performance is average but Night mode helps capture better output.

4. Xiaomi Poco X3

Top best mobiles under 1000 QAR to buy in Qatar

The mid-range Poco X3 succeeds the Poco X2 which has been a recommendation in the past. It is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G SoC and boasts of a 6000mAh battery as well as a 6.67-inch full-HD+ screen. As you can guess, this phone is relatively bulky and heavy. The design is relatively fresh, with a very prominent camera module on the back. The body is made of plastic and the glossy finish is prone to smudging, but you do get IP53 water and dust resistance.

The base variant has 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The middle variant has 128GB of storage, while the top-end one raises the RAM to 8GB on top of that. All three cost under QAR 999 in Qatar. You get MIUI 12 on top of Android 10 with some unnecessary bloatware. Performance is good overall, and so is battery life. This is a good option for gaming and entertainment. The cameras are also adequate for everyday use.

If you don't want your phone to be too bulky, you might want to look elsewhere. If that isn't a problem, the Poco X3 offers plenty of value for money.

5. Realme 6 Pro

Top best mobiles under 1000 QAR to buy in Qatar

The Realme 6 Pro was launched alongside the Realme 6, and both smartphones have made it to our lists at their respective prices. The Realme 6 Pro has a 6.6-inch display with a dual-camera hole-punch for the selfie cameras. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 720G SoC just like the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max. The device is well designed but is a little slippery as it has a glass back. This phone is also a little heavy at 202g. One unique feature of the Realme 6 Pro is its 90Hz screen refresh rate. It also has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner that is easy to reach and quick to unlock the phone.

The Realme 6 Pro is offered in three variants: 6GB of RAM with 64GB of storage, 6GB of RAM with 128GB of storage, and 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage. The base variant starts at QAR 899 while the other variants are priced at QAR 939 and QAR 988 respectively.

There's a quad-camera setup at the back. Camera performance was decent in daylight and for close-ups, but low-light camera performance needs some improvement. The Realme 6 Pro has a 4300mAh battery which isn't as big as some of the other phones in the list but it delivered excellent battery life when we reviewed it.

6. Samsung Galaxy M31

Top best mobiles under 1000 QAR to buy in Qatar

Samsung has been focusing on the sub QAR 999 market with its Galaxy M-series, and the Galaxy M31 is still a compelling option. This model has a 6.4-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display that delivers vivid colours and very good viewing angles. There is a quad-camera setup at the back with a 64-megapixel primary camera. It also packs a big 6,000mAh battery and a capable Exynos 9611 SoC.

amsung offers the Galaxy M31 with 6GB of RAM and two storage options, 64GB and 128GB. Prices start at QAR 790, for the base model while the higher model is priced at QAR 815. The big battery offers fantastic battery life and this phone could easily go on for two days. The cameras are good in daylight, the wide-angle one offers a wider field of view but loses out on details compared to the primary camera. We did notice that the camera AI can go overboard in terms of saturating colours. The primary camera is a little slow while focusing and you can see minor grain in the output. With Night mode enabled, the Galaxy M31 delivers better low-light shots. We found video stabilisation to be average as well.

The Exynos 9611 SoC is not as powerful as the Snapdragon 720G powering the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max and the Realme 6 Pro but it is capable of handling day-to-day tasks with ease. The battery is the highlight of the Galaxy M31 as it can outrun several devices on this list
