Best smartphones under Rs 15000

Best smartphones under Rs 15000

The sub-Rs 15,000 got a rejig this week with the launch of Redmi 10 Prime Xiaomi’s new affordable smartphone. The Redmi 10 Prime takes up the position left vacant by the Redmi Note 10 after its multiple price hikes. The latter still remains an attractive option in this price category though. Both these smartphones, and all the other on our list, are more than capable of handling your daily tasks and come with decent cameras too.

For example, the Motorola Moto G30 comes with a 64-megapixel main camera while both the Redmi 10 Prime and Poco M3 Pro 5G come with 90Hz displays that make them ideal for gaming. In case you are in the market for a budget smartphone, here are the best smartphones you can buy in India under Rs 15,000 right now.

Redmi 10 Prime

The latest smartphone to launch in this category and make it to our list is the Redmi 10 Prime. Priced at Rs 12,499 for the base variant, the Redmi 10 Prime is loaded with features, some of which are tough to find is this segment. It doesn’t give you a premium in-hand feel but, if you can keep that aside, you still get a 90Hz display, Helio G88 SoC, 50-megapixel primary camera and a big 6000mAh battery.

There is also a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and a dual speaker setup. All of this makes the Redmi 10 Prime a decent value for money smartphone.

Our verdict There is no doubt that Redmi 10 Prime makes a lot of features more accessible for users. The 50-megapixel main camera, 90Hz display and a 6000mAH battery make this a promising affordable smartphone. However, I am not convinced with the overall build, and we will see how the processor performs in everyday usage.

Motorola Moto G30

Motorola has been doing pretty well this year without making a lot of noise about it. Actually, that’s something it should look to change as well. Anyway, The Moto G30 is another good smartphone under Rs 15,000 and comes with features such as Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor, a 6.5-inch HD+ display with a notch on the top and a 64-megapixel camera setup. The biggest highlight of this device is the stock Android experience you get which is cleaner than the custom ROMs.

At just Rs 10,999, it comes with an impressive camera setup and an excellent processor if you want to perform basic tasks. The battery life in the Moto G30 is also pretty decent, given its price tag.

Redmi Note 10

The Redmi Note 10 remains to be an excellent choice despite multiple price hikes and newer competition. The smartphone now costs more than Rs 14,000 but, still has a plenty to offer starting with a premium in-hand feel.

It comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 processor, a 6.43-inch Full-HD+ display, and a 48-megapixel camera system on the back.

Our verdict: The Redmi Note 10 has one of the best displays at this price point, great battery life and a beautiful design. The camera performance is a bit consistent, but when it comes off, the images are really nice. The only thing you need to consider is the performance.
