Less than 10K Best Phone for under 10,000?

I'm looking for a phone which will be a daily driver for nothing much other than online classes(microsoft teams) and social media (whatsapp,instagram etc). I will most likely never use it for heavy gaming such as pubg, and camera quality isn't a huge factor unless it's really terrible.
In terms of brand preference, my whole family currently all basically have or had a xiaomi phone but i am open to other options. My max budget is 10k but i'm leaning more towards the 8-9K side.
I have also done some searching of my own and saw the redmi 9 prime and the realme narzo 10a but i to be honest, know very less about mobile tech. I do know however that anything less than 3gb Ram is already pretty slow as it is and 32 gb of internal storage, more than 10gb of it is taken by the Ui itself if what my friends say is to be believed. Hope to get some wisdom from you guys :p
Thank you :)

You seem to be a reputed seller and old member too but just an advice, please try using a case for the mobile phones. I would have bought the Pixels or the Asus you are/ were selling but there's loads of usage marks on them dude. I hope as this remark is not in your sale thread it won't be considered as spamming. Good luck for the sales anyhow.
Those are smudge bro since the back of asus is quite a fingerprint magnetic

And the sides which have minor white dot those are due to case itself however those are very minimal like hardly 7-8 spot like that

My asus 5z came with a tpu case in the box. First time i'm using a phone with a case. it's horrible. but without it, it feels like it could slip and die at any time, even though it looks like a piece of art...

I never used that case much since after one month only that became yellowish giving this beauty an ugly look hence used plastic case bust it got few minor dots due to dust particles being trapped in between so after few days stopped using that and ever since then it has been without cover shinning beautifully but you need to be careful but in drop tests it has been proved much durable than it feels

This is all phones nowadays I am afraid. All shiny cheap glass like, why don't they add some glitter to it I wonder. The last phone I used without a case, I could, was GN4. Since then every phone is built like this and it basically mandates us to use a case, for phones like this especially. I HATE CASES, but I despise a smudgy scratched phone. Also, it warrants a better resale value for phones at near perfect cosmetics, I mean you should care about that if you personally don't care about aesthetics at all. :)

All things apart but 5z doesn't feel cheap at all infact it feels much more premium to even more than few higher range ones @Julian what's ur view

I don't like glass backs, makes no sense really. An aluminum back is the best, for heat dissipation too. But, yeah the 5z is definitely a very premium looking and feeling phone. and the performance is fantastic.

Also, the asus pattern on the back, does anyone else do something similar? It's really striking when it catches the light and makes those ray patterns. Anyway, we're spamming the thread.

@Rezep did you finalize on a phone yet?

IThe thread has diverged into aesthetics now and i can appreciate the visual effects manufacturers spend time working on. but they are just gimmicks at the end of the day. cosmetic stuff designed to justify a price tag. with a plethora of models available from multiple companies, people are spoilt for choice with regards to their purchase. I personally prefer functionality over everything else and use a plain nokia 6.1. bought it mid last year, serving me well even after multiple falls and bumps . i guess its not available now and has been taken over by newer sub 10k models. but i would go with nokia either way.
