Compared to midrange chips in this price, the Poco F1 uses last year’s flagship Snapdragon 845 chipset. This makes it a good deal for those who only care about performance. On top of that, the Poco F1 comes with a 4000mAh battery with support for fast charging, IR Face Unlock and a pair of good cameras. It runs on MIUI 10 with the Poco launcher and this might irk many who prefer a clean and bloat-free user experience. Also, the phone is made of plastic and it sports a design that makes the Motorola One Vision look extremely modern.advertisementSamsung Galaxy A50 (from Rs 18,499)The Galaxy A50 is more like the One Vision in its approach to a smartphone experience. The Galaxy A50 uses an almost similar chipset as the One Vision and even gets a gradient design, albeit with a plastic rear panel. However, as with most Samsung devices, the Galaxy A50 scores high with its 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display sporting tiny waterdrop notch on top. It also gets an in-screen fingerprint sensor. The highlight has to be its triple camera setup, including a wide-angle camera. With a 15W fast charging equipped 4000mAh battery, the Galaxy A50 is a solid package at this price.Oppo F11 Pro (from Rs 19,999)The Oppo F11 Pro has a seen a massive price cut and is now selling for Rs 19,999. At this price, the F11 Pro has to be the most advanced phone you can buy right now. The highlight of the phone has to be its pop-up selfie camera that makes for a display with no notch or hole-punch cutout for the camera. It also sports beautiful gradient colours, 20W fast charging for its 4000mAh battery and a 48-megapixel primary rear camera. The MediaTek Helio P70 is powerful enough for daily tasks but don’t expect great gaming performance.Nokia 8.1 (from Rs 19,999)The Nokia 8.1 is another great buy at Rs 19,999 if you prefer a premium build and design along with a clean Android experience. The Nokia 8.1 is also an Android One phone and coupled with a Snapdragon 710 chipset, it’s one of the fastest phones you can buy in this price bracket.

Malaysia seeks trial venue switch for Sri Lankan envoy

The unprecedented application was filed by the public prosecutor, with Sahib filing an affidavit in support of moving the court. Sahib said he believed that his safety was not guaranteed if he were to attend the trial in the Sepang Sessions Court as witness because large groups of Tamils had gathered there during the last two case managements.He said he was still traumatised by the Sept 4 brutal attack on him at the KLIA, a public area which should have tight security measures. Justice Nordin Hassan said it did not matter what Sahib felt but rather whether he could use his discretion judiciously to approve the application.He advised the lawyers to provide him further submissions on the legal position in Singapore and India as Section 417 of the CPC in Malaysia was similar to those countries.Nordin will deliver his ruling on April 20. (Colombo Gazette) The application in January was made under Section 417 (d) of the Criminal Procedure Code (CPC) for the High Court to grant an order for the general convenience of a witness. Lawyer M Manoharan, who is appearing for the accused – A Kalaimughilan, V Balamurugan and V Ragunathan – said the application was an insult to the Malaysian judiciary, court staff and the police force.“This will open the floodgates for witnesses to make such an application,” he said, adding that there was no material evidence that Sahib’s safety and security was at stake.He said the ambassador could employ security officers to take care of his safety while in the court premises. Government lawyer Suhaimi Ibrahim today told the High Court that Sahib would be reluctant to come to Sepang as the court was located in a secluded area. “I fear for my safety and security if the trial is to be continued in Sepang,” he said, adding that he lodged a police report in January to express his concern.He said he felt safer to have the trial heard in the Kuala Lumpur court as security measures there were tighter and better.Sahib claimed Tamil groups had attempted to harm the staff of the Sri Langkan High Commission and a former prime minister at a Buddhist temple during his visit to Malaysia. Malaysia has filed an application, on the request of the Sri Lankan Ambassador to Malaysia, to transfer a criminal trial from the Sepang court to Kuala Lumpur on security grounds, Free Malaysia Today reported.Last September, three men were charged with rioting and assaulting ambassador Ibrahim Sahib Ansar at the KLIA airport. read more
