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.
ZTE Nubia Z11 Mini S
On paper, the ZTE Nubia Z11 Mini S offers the best possible hardware specifications that you can expect in this budget.
Priced at Rs. 16,999, the handset is powered by 2.0GHz Snapdragon 625 processor, paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. It includes a 23MP rear camera with large 1/ 2.6- inch sensor, f/2.0 lens and a 13MP selfie-camera.
Two most sought after features in modern day smartphones are long lasting battery and gorgeous camera. And the Lenovo P2 is one of the best big battery phones you can score in this budget.
The handset includes a 5000mAh battery, good quality AMOLED display, a battery efficient Snapdragon 625 chipset, and a dedicated slider to enter and exit power saving mode on the fly. Buy it if your number one priority is a long lasting battery. The 4GB RAM variant costs 17,999 INR.
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.
The Snapdragon 820 powered Mi5 is another great option in this budget. It’s a compact phone with a 5.15-inch AMOLED display and after subsequent updates over the last year, it works a lot better today.
The Mi5 feels premium and has a great camera in its class. Of course, if you are looking for something at the other end of the spectrum (Size-wise) there is Mi Max Prime with a gigantic 6.44-inch display.
