With the world going digital, Smartphones are no longer frivolous accessories. People actually rely on them for many utilitarian needs and thus more and more people are willing to spend more for better and durable experience. The slot between Rs. 15000 and Rs. 20,000 is where you’d expect the sweet spot to lie – a place where you could get reasonably affordable yet powerful phones that don’t lag for 2 years or more.  Well, here is a list of trusted phones under 20,000 INR that you can opt for.

Moto G5 Plus

The Moto G5 Plus is one of the most talked about phone these days. Belonging to the enormously popular G series, this new Lenovo handset is available in two variants priced at 14,999 INR and 16,999 INR.

The low-end variant, however, makes very little sense as it offers paltry 16GB storage, but at the same time, the high-end variant assures of best in class rear camera performance, stock Android efficiency, and a compact, elegant design.

The Honor 6X (Full Review) is also a camera-centric challenger. It comes with dual rear cameras that can together shoot images with blurred backdrops.  The 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant cost 15,999 INR, which is a pretty reasonable price for the experience it renders.


The Honor 6X flaunts a slim and sexy design, a good quality 5.5-inch Full HD display, decent 8MP front camera and houses a  3340mAh battery.

Vivo V5

All the other options in this list are online exclusives. If you are looking forward to buying something offline in this budget, you can consider Vivo V5( Full Review) as an option. Not for its 20MP selfie camera, though.


Out of a slew of selfie-centric phones, this earns a mention because of its slim design, extremely fast fingerprint sensor, and reasonable rear camera. It hasn’t got the fastest chipset or the sharpest display in the budget but the overall experience is quite gratifying, which makes it a good option for basic and moderate Android users looking forward to buying something from nearby phone store.
